Turn On The Lights By Regina Weston

(Mark 12:30- 31)  "Love your neighbor as yourself."

Which simply means: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Definition of Self-love: the instinct by which one's actions are directed to the promotion of one's own welfare or well being, especially and excessive regard for one's own advantage.

It is a belief that one of the issues that is facing our women of all ages is the lack of self-love. When you love yourself then you can freely love those around you. You can liberally acknowledge love and identify unhealthy love. This allows you to make a conscious decision to remove yourself from a toxic relationship or situation. Self-love is an awareness of who you are and what you deserve and the manner in which it should be delivered.

"Self-love is a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and spiritual growth. ... You love yourself when you can turn away from something that feels good and exciting to what you need to stay strong, centered, and moving forward in your life, instead."

That means that jealousy, envy, back biting, backstabbing and hatred has no room or space in your mind, heart and being. It's when you don't know who you are, and who's you are when conflict and self-doubt is able to take up residence in your life, mind and heart.

Man verse Self-conflict: "man against selfconflict, the struggle is internal. This is a conflict that is usually associated with an external conflict. A character must overcome his own nature or make a choice between two or more paths - good and evil; logic and emotion."

Turn on the lights so that you can learn who you are and not compare yourself with others or define yourself by the lives of others and opinions of others. 

Turn on the lights is to ignite the light bulb of thought to go off in your psyche to help you to begin the process of change in the way that you think, act and respond to life, people and situations. It is to help you to get rid of those things that has polluted your spirit, mind and body in a negative manner that has produce a certain mindset in you.

It's my hope that you can start to heal today, taking the journey towards self-love so that you can live your best life, experience all the positive and great things that this life and world has to offer you.

You can start by pressing the reset button in your mind and change your thoughts which is a daily process with positive affirmations, replacing unfavorable behaviors with more favorable ones. And begin to learn about you, what you want and desire and take baby steps towards making those dreams a reality.

I believe in you!

Surround yourself with positive, energetic people that can keep the flame burning in you.  Don't deem your light with demeaning words, actions or people in your circle. Neither with dwelling on the past or present hurts, situations/circumstances that has transpired in your life. 

You're are not that person. You don't have to be that girl or that woman. I speak healing, deliverance and blessing over you. You can be whole. You are Whole, in Jesus name. Be blessed my sister's and walk in the abundance of love and admiration wherewith Christ has set you free today.

Blindfolded In The Wilderness By Regina Weston

The God that goes before you, knows the path you're going to take in this life. The message is a simple one, but for many of us, a hard one to grasp onto. Don't worry because God has your back. the bible says, in Jeremiah 29:11-13 -11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Many of us fall in the mindset of despair when things don't work out in our favor, but have you ever considered that God has something better for you? So, you lost your job, He has a better one for you, that pays more and in a better location. So, he or she walked out of your life, have you ever thought that they weren't suppose to be in it in the first place? Everything you want may not be what God wants or has for you. And when you take on things or allow people to enter your life that aren't assigned to your journey it throws a monkey wrench  in God's divine order and plan for your life.

God wants you to have the very best, therefore why are you willing to settle for mediocre, you are the kings child and deserve to eat from the kings table. Regardless, to the choices that you have made in your life, good or bad, the thoughts God has towards you and about you has never changed. He doesn't throw people to the waste side like garbage as man does. His love for you is unconditional. It doesn't matter where you are at in life, as long as you have breathe in your body, you can change your life and turn things around for the better. Becoming the person you where created to be and have what is for you, the best of everything. Don't sell yourself short because of feelings of unworthiness. You deserve to be loved and respected, treated well, to eat the finest of meals, to wear the best garments, and to experience love from individuals that can love you in the right manner and to travel to broaden your horizon.

Whatever the situation, person, place or thing, when things don't go as you think that they should just know that the God that goes before you has mapped out a plan for your life and is not going to leave you broke down and doomed to failure, He always has a ram in the bush. He shows up on time and supplies what you need, every time. If He takes care of the ravens that neither toss or labor for shelter or food why wouldn't He look after you and supply your needs according to His riches in glory. It's time to trust the God that is all knowing. He is the God that goes before you and prepares, a plate for you, open doors that you may or may not be qualified to walk through. Your steps are order one day at time. From this day forward when something transpires in your life that makes you feel blue, turn it around and say that it wasn't meant for me, God has better because He has my back. He is guiding me through this wilderness and I'm going to trust Him anyway despite of the way things look. I'm blindfolded for a reason, I can't see my future but God does, which is why I will learn to trust Him, each and every day as I walk in this wilderness called life.

        Mending Hearts - Women Healing Women                                 Title: Emotional Health    

Let me start by wishing you a Happy New Year. I hope this year starts off on the right foot and you can begin the process to correct anything in your life that is not where it is suppose to be.
          This year I encourage you to let go of the Broken Bird Syndrome. The only one that you can fix is yourself, and only with the help of the Lord can this be accomplished.
          Many of us have people in our lives that we have been trying to help to the degree that you have become emotionally drained in doing so. It's time to separate yourself from individuals that do not promote your emotional stability. When I was a little girl my father had a saying, "You Pay The Cost To Be The Boss" and this is so true, people have to learn from their own mistakes. It is not your job to fix anyone. It's your job to advise someone that is about to fall off a cliff that there is danger up ahead. Also, to educate on how to live a better life or do things in a correct manner. However, experience has taught me that if it's not in the person mind and heart to do what's right, you are wasting precious time and energy.  
          It is said that 'A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste ' which is why I encourage you to protect your mind. Being on overload with things that do not promote healthy living in all facets of life is unproductive. In 2018, live and let live. You matter, and your life matters as well, start putting you first, protect your emotional health. Life is too short and you don't want to look around one day and regret that you exhausted your whole existence trying to fix other people lives when you could have been living your own and enjoying doing so. Take control of your Emotional Health today, you owe it to yourself.

You're A Conqueror

Just a few words to encourage you: This year may have been a trying one for a lot of you. You may have lost someone dear to your heart. It could've been your job, home, or failing in your health but through it all I want to let you know that you're still a conqueror. "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."-Psalm 30:5

God has not forgotten about you. The cloud has to move at some point and the sun will again. Remember that in all things that we still have to give God the honor, the Glory and thanks for the battles that He has given us victory over. The one's He fights on our behalf that we have no clue about. The danger seen and unseen that He protects us from. How He wakes us up in the morning in our right mind, providing food, shelter, clothing, fair health and strength.

Look at life through a new lens, knowing that you're a conqueror and there will be a victory report, just believe in it despite of what your situation looks like. God loves you and will never forsaken you. He gave His life for you. There is no greater love than this.

And if life has been great for you that is wonderful, just remember someone else that is in need and pay it forward. Remember that a hug or a warm hello goes a long way. You never know what may bring a smile to a person face or a glimmer of hope into the life of somebody. Buy someone less fortunate than you, a meal, an article of clothing; it is better to give than to receive anyway. You will become a better person because of it and encourage someone else in the process making this world a better place to live in.

Love you all, Regina Weston

Something Behind The Smile by Regina Weston

Definition of Smile: form one's features into a pleased, kind, or amused expression, typically with the corners of the mouth turned up and the front teeth exposed.

Definition of Fake: not genuine; counterfeit.

Definition of Snake: a treacherous or deceitful person.

Have you ever been in the presence of someone that you wanted to believe really loved or cared about you and had your best interest at heart, but deep down inside your gut is telling you otherwise? Your instinct is instructing you to put on your sun glasses when you're around certain individuals because the undercover shade is real and it needs to be blocked at all cost.

We all have a built in radar dictator that goes off when something is not right. It is given to us by God that warns us when danger is around and that it is time to be watchful and prepare to react.

Many people ignore the Blinking Red Light that goes off when something is not right or something about someone just seems off. And when you ignore the warning signs you end up being disappointed or hurt because of it.

This is a simple message telling you to be mindful of whom you call a friend because a lot of people do not deserve that title. In today's world, in my view it is very rare to find a true ride or die friend. It seems that people are out for what they can gain out of you. They mask being in your presence as friendship but really they are sizing you up, trying to see how they can get over on you or what they can get out of you.

The title of this article is "Something Behind The Smile", the next time someone tries to befriend you, look deeper then the surface of their smile and examine what motive this person has for wanting to be in your life, it can save you from hurt and regret.

And some of you have people in your life that you need to remove from your circle because they do not add anything to your life. It is a saying that you can do bad by yourself. And it's true; you can do be bad by yourself.

Please take note of what a good friendship is based on:

"1. Friends usually have good communication. This is a quality that is the core of any good relationship. Both the people are clear, open and genuine, and problems don’t get swept under the rug. Conflicts are dealt with directly.

2. They take on problems along with you. A true friend can look beyond a smile and can tell if you’re in pain, maybe by body language or the look in your eyes. They accept you as you are and will forever be there. They also are there for each other when times are good, which is not all that easy sometimes.

3. A good relationship is based on give and take and consideration of each other.

4. They make time for each other, whether it is convenient or not. Real friends always put a high value on the time they spend together. Although their lives may be busy, they make time to stay in touch.

5. They believe wholeheartedly in each other. A true friend can feel your passions and understand your vision for the future. They cheer you along the whole way and believe that you will get there.

6. True friends accept each other unconditionally, “warts and all”. They give each other the freedom to be themselves, as well as the freedom to change and grow. No controlling each other, judgment or criticisms.

7. Unlike casual friends or acquaintances, true friends listen carefully, with no compulsion to give advice. Often people don’t need or want advice, they simply want a listening ear, someone they can vent to. A real friend can also sense when a word of advice would be welcomed, and at those times know just what to say."

Now if the people in your life, family or so called friend circle are not doing the above it is time for you to rethink your relationships and put them in the right perspective and then act accordingly, life is too short not to live it genuine. Learn and know the difference between a friend, a casual friend, an acquaintances and a deadly serpent.
