Sow Good Seeds

When you sow good seeds, you reap good fruit. Note: The fruit you harvest will not look like the seeds you sowed. Just know that if you sow from your heart, without expecting anything in return, your harvest will be great.♥️ ~ Shaun

Stay Present

Let’s not be so consumed with the past or the future that we miss out on the present. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not promised. All we have is now.

Believe me, it’s possible to plan for the future and still be present. Try it!♥️ ~ Shaun

Trust

For most, trust does not happen over night. It takes time to build. Once in place, handle it with care because once it’s broken it can take a lifetime to repair.♥️ ~ Shaun

Sooo… short story. Right as I was posting this to my Facebook page, I started receiving notifications that someone was sharing my posts. I was like cool! Until I looked at who had shared them. How about someone stole my profile picture and banner and began sharing my posts. Talk about WILD!! Why do people do these things? Why pretend to be someone you’re not. At least they used a different name, but my same picture!! Disgusting and disturbing.

Trust… can’t trust nobody!! Shaking my head, laughing.

Y’all have a great day!

Wednesday Writings

I was just scrolling through my Facebook memories and came across a few pictures I had shared from one of my basketball card collections. Y’all, it’s so ironic that this post popped up today because I have been thinking about parting ways with my cards… with a lot of things.

For a little over two months now, I have been slowly packing up my mom’s house. I never knew how much stuff she had. How many sentimental things she had been holding on to. Listen, it was a lot.

Well, this got me to thinking about some of the things I’ve been holding on to. Things that are very dear to me. Although my sisters and I kept a lot of my moms things– even though we had no real connection with them– will my children do the same? Would I want them to? They already think I hold on to too much, and I think they might be right.

After going through Momma’s things and having to decide what’s worth keeping, selling or trashing, I believe it’s time to let a few things of my own go. My two have told me countless times that they do not want their baby items, preschool drawings or their baby teeth. Laughing. So why am I still holding on to them? Y’all, I have things like their first pair of shoes, the outfits they wore home from the hospital. I also have baby bottles, bows, and stuffed animals. And y’all, don’t get me started on all of the books and VHS tapes I kept. And that’s only their things. Sigh. I have over 30 years of my own things that I have kept. Y’all, I still have my laundry bag from basic training. Why?!! Shaking my head, laughing. It’s definitely too much. So, before this year ends.. which is soon.. I need to decide what’s continuing on with me and what has to go.

Questions: Have you ever had to part ways with sentimental items? If so, how did you do it; and how did you feel afterwards? Do you regret it?

Well, this is all I have for today. Next week we will be in a new year. How exciting!

Enjoy your day!♥️

You Are The Perfect Gift

No amount of money will ever bring the love and joy you bring; and no materialistic gift can ever replace your presence. You have spent countless hours searching for the perfect gift not realizing that YOU ARE IT. You are the perfect gift.♥️ ~ Shaun

Growth!

Hello!!

Y’all, I woke up this morning feeling rejuvenated! You wanna know why? It’s because I actually slept all night.. ALL NIGHT! I went to bed around 11:30 and didn’t wake up until 6:30 this morning. Listen! I haven’t slept all night in ages. Like, years! Honestly, I don’t even know how to process this feeling. It’s like being on a great vacation and being in love all wrapped in one great feeling. Whew!! I had noooo idea a night of great sleep could make me feel this good. I must do it more often.

Anyhoo… Because I slept so wonderfully, I didn’t draw or post a quote this morning. However, I did find a quote in my Facebook memories from last year that I’d like to share. Usually, around this time of the year, I’m releasing something. However, this year, I have nothing to release. In no way was this an uneventful, stress-free year, but I have nothing to release. Nothing. Perhaps I released everything throughout the year. This year I didn’t hold on to hurts and disappointments as long as usual. I processed and released them quickly. Smiling. Growth!

Facebook Memory: December 23, 2021

It is amazing how feelings, thoughts and things can keep us emotionally trapped in the past. We must believe that when God removes something or someone from our lives, it is meant for our good OR their good (yeah…it’s not always about us). Whatever God is telling you to release, release. Your purpose depends on you letting go and moving forward.

Whatever or whoever was left behind was left for a reason. With this said… Whatever or whoever remained, remains for a reason. It’s all about purpose. Y’all be blessed.♥️ ~ Shaun
