Feeling Forsaken?

20140119-100243.jpg

I know you think that God has forsaken you. Why else would he allow such terrible things to happen? While you’ve made some mistakes, overall you’re a good person, right? So, why does it seem like your prayers are falling on deaf ears?…God doesn’t always answer prayers in one big, ginormous, earth-shattering blessing. Therefore, gratefulness in the little things that occur daily, partnered with positive thoughts & affirmations, seasoned with forgiveness of yourself and those who have dishonored you, rooted in the extending of love to all who cross your path, will exponentially bless you in a way you haven’t fathomed in your prayers.

Focus on what is going right in your life, instead of on what’s going wrong. You may not have the job you want, but you have a job. You may not have the relationship you want, but you have genuine, loyal friendships. You may not live in the house you want, but you have a roof over your head. You may not fit into that smaller size in your closet, but you have the ability to move your limbs. You may not have the baby you want, but you have a faithful husband who thinks the world of you. You may not have that wife you want, but you have a career that’s allowing you to lay a foundation for your future family so that you can live a life of quality that is debt free. You may not have that husband you want, but you have the wisdom to know you need to use this time to work on your emotional, spiritual, physical, and mental self so that you will be free of baggage when the right man presents himself. Focus on what you have instead of focusing on what you don’t have. Remember: there are those who would give their lives to have yours. They are praying desperately for the things and people you take for granted.

Be encouraged to greatness! God will never leave or forsake you.

Sincerely,
Shanika

Delta Sigma Theta: a Legacy of Distinction.

If you have engaged in any form of social media today, it’s highly likely that you saw posts about Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated (DST). DST, a historically African-American sorority of collegiate women called to embody sisterhood, scholarship, and service, was founded on January 13, 1913 by 22 visionaries who had a proclivity to serve their community in a way that hadn’t been done before by serving as activists of those in need. The organization’s first public act was its participation in the Women’s Suffrage March in March of 1913, just months after its inception, and was the only historically African-American sorority in attendance. In its 101 years of service, DST has grown into an international powerhouse of over 250,000 women with collegiate and alumnae chapters in the United States, England, Japan, Germany, the Republic of Korea, the Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, Jamaica, and Bermuda.

While I am proud to call myself a woman of Delta, it pales in the awareness of the stupendous greatness by which I am surrounded. Today, for me, served as a reminder of the shoulders on which I stand, the paths that I am able to walk paved by the pioneers who’ve sacrificed for me, and most importantly, the responsibility I have to appropriately represent the legacy. The charge to continue in the betterment of myself so that I can continue to be diligent in serving and fighting for others who face disparities is something that resonates with me always, but especially today.

This day also serves as a reminder to always pursuit my passion, even when surrounded by doubt and opposition. While it wasn’t an easy feat for the 22 founders of this illustrious organization to break away from the status quo, their unyielding efforts as evidenced today, over a century later, personifies that nothing worth having will come to fruition without relentless hard work and devout dedication to a cause much bigger than self.

Happy Founders’ Day to my Sorors of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated! Let us forge ahead with the fortitude established by our founders as we continue to work to make the world a little greater!

Sincerely,

Shanika

Vision Board 2014

20140106-160052.jpg

I’ve completed my 2014 vision board and I’m uber excited!!!

There are several types of vision boards, and some elect to have a variety of boards that each represents an area, goal, or project they have; but I decided I would create a board that embodies everything I am and want to accomplish this year. I have it taped to my ceiling so that I can look UP at it daily as affirmation!

My vision is divided into 8 areas(I didn’t start with wanting to have a certain number of sections. I simply took some time to think about everything I wanted–every area in which I wanted to improve), with the center representing my motivation, my why, my daughter and the words and phrases that come to mind when I think of her.

The other areas represent what I want MORE of in my life, what I want to accomplish via my business, my health goals, the new home I want to provide for my daughter, words and phrases that describe my definition of happy, independent of others’ expectations and definitions, the unconditional love of a husband, and me dusting off my shoulders, becoming the next best version of myself!

Those who know me know that my favorite number is 7, as biblically it represents completion. Therefore, the number 8, one more than 7, represents an over-abundance, overflow, exceeding what was originally thought of as complete. Eight also represents resurrection, regeneration, and the beginning of a new era. How perfect is that message for a new vision board?!?! God is definitely taking me into a new era and I’m preparing daily!

These 8 sections represents the MORE that’s in STORE for ME!!!

I highly recommend that you create a vision board for yourself, as it can serve as a visual blueprint for all you want to accomplish. It’s also very empowering. Don’t worry about following any “vision board rules,” as God is seeking to do through you what hasn’t been done before, therefore someone else’s rules don’t apply to you anyway! #catchthatword

Get some magazines & newspapers, and clip pictures and/or words that speak to what you want to achieve. Then attach them to a poster board, cork board, or even a wall or mirror in your home. Voila, your vision board is complete!

Happy (en)Visioning! 🙂

Transformation

20140104-185134.jpg

Situations don’t change until I change the way I look at them.

There have been many times in my life when I’ve taken a step back to evaluate how I could have better handled various situations. Without fail, I’m always able to see what I could have done or said differently. In my estimation, this was all I needed to accept responsibility and try to make things right. This led to a series of conversations in which I apologized and offered my explanation of why I responded or reacted the way I did, not to excuse the behavior, but to offer context so the other party would know that my action or reaction had nothing to do with them, as I earnestly believe that what comes from us, defines us, and no one else.

It was during this process of atonement, if you will, that l learned a lesson that was paramount in my professing: just because you (truly) accept responsibility, doesn’t mean others will (truly).

Some would rather be pacified within their oblivion and accept the words of a party not privy to the facts first-hand, further solidifying their faux-truth than accept the hard truth that maybe, just maybe they were also wrong.

This realization allowed me to transform my mind, resulting in new vision, new light, new healing, new hope.

It would have been detrimental to my quest to live a purposed-led life to sit and wait for an genuine apology, acceptance of responsibility, or a mere acknowledgement that I, too, am human and have feelings.

My challenge to you is to change the way you look at the situations in your life that are causing you angst. Do your part in evaluating what you could have said or done differently, fully accepting personal responsibility. Face your hard truth. Seek to make things right with those individuals.

The key: do it for you, without any expectation of a return on investment. Always remember that whatever response, or lack their of, that you receive isn’t about you at all.

Situations don’t change until you change the way you look at them.

Reference: Romans 12:2—>And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Blessings to you as you achieve the peace you deserve.

Sincerely,
Shanika
