The original article, “Why Marriage is not THE Goal,”  has been sitting in my drafts box for over a year. What better day than #ForbiddenTopicWednesday to share it? Relationships | Why Marriage is not THE Goal By: Maquita Donyel “If a state of singleness means, ‘to be separate, unique and whole,’ then to be totally single should be every Christian’s number one goal. Many have confused ‘singleness’ with ‘being alone’. There should never be a time [even in marriage] when you cease to be a single being who is unique and whole. The vast majority of marital problems arise because a husband or wife (or both) has not seen himself or herself as a unique, worthy individual—that is, he or she had a bad self image, was not whole or separate, and always depended on some other person for happiness. They never maximized their singleness.” – Myles Munroe We’ve discussed the importance of dating with the…

“One of the greatest pieces of advice I’ve ever gotten in my life was from my mom.—“- Johnny Depp What in the heck would we do without Mom’s advice?? Today’s morning instagram post consisted of some necessary advice from my mom that I felt we all could use.  Then I got to thinking, “I wonder what other motherly advice is being served all across the globe this morning; I’d sure like to share it!” Since the Wednesday schedule wouldn’t allow for a trip across the globe, I stopped a few random ladies in DC  and asked, “What is the best advice your mother has given you?”. Check out the video to hear their answers! Don’t be stingy… share some of the beautiful advice you mother has shared with you. 🙂 Some of your moms are hilarious and sharing is caring my dear. Check out the rest of that Johnny Depp quote here…

Are people, things, and/or a busy schedule crowding your space? Feeling overwhelmed, short of time, or mentally discombobulated? This article’s for you! Properly maintaining your “happy space,” mentally, physically and emotionally, is essential to your overall development; as a woman and as a person.  In order keep your “happy space,” well… happy, boundaries must be set. What do we mean by boundaries? A line that marks the limits of an area. Why is it necessary? It establishes a sense of self-respect and ultimately the respect of others. Picture this, you’re living in a large, beautiful, bright, open space without any walls. During the day people come and go as they please. You’re eating breakfast and you’re being questioned about how you feel, what you’re eating, what you have planned for the day. You are then lectured about how those decisions will impact your future. So, you decide to skip breakfast and head for the shower. Only to…

Forbidden Topic Wednesday: Love vs. Self Hate – A Man’s Perspective The other day Tony Gaskins posted the picture to the right—– This is a topic worth discussing. Many women dismiss early signs and end up in an emotional/physical/mentally abusive relationship that only they believe is loving and healthy. Often times they end up marrying this person. Watch the video above, from a man’s perspective, and share your thoughts!

Complement: as in goes well together, not compliment: as in to give a polite praise. You see, peanut butter is quite tasty by itself; as are honey and jam. However, if you were to put either of them with a slice of bread covered with mayo, you would get a  unappetizing result. As always, it’s important to become your own tasty ingredient first, then patiently wait for your yummy match. The same goes with friends! Do not force a friendship that is not meant to be. If you are unable to love them where they are, let go. If you are already thinking of ways you need to change them, let go… There’s someone out there that will enhance the amazing person you already are, not take away from it. If you have already found that person, be sure to work daily to keep them! Just don’t settle… because…

No, You Can’t Be Friends with Your Ex “You can’t steal second base if you keep your foot on first”- Mark Batterson I’m often asked my viewpoint on this topic. First let’s define “Your Ex” Your Ex: Is a person you had any emotional/sexual/commitment ties with, and have decided at some point that this was no longer going to work out. Today, we are talking about friends, not so much acquaintances. But, let us define an acquaintance. Acquaintance: I would say this involves communication that happens once/twice a year between the hours of 10am and 7pm– involving things like”hello”, “happy birthday”, “congrats!” “Merry Christmas to you and your family” types of things. *Depending on one’s self-control ability, these lines can quickly become blurred. If we are being absolutely honest with ourselves, the desire to befriend an ex stems from one of three reasons: 1. Either you are not completely over him So…
