Have you ever wondered what goes on inside of an original Goddess’ life? Like what’s on her mind? How does one keep it all together? How does she run a business, while earning a degree, working a 9-5 as a single mother. How? Making it sound a lot easier than the reality. Well let us have “à la Goddess talk” (a Lil Goddess Talk)
I desire my blogs to inspire you. Or maybe ignite a flame deep down inside of you. Bringing out something you never knew existed. But most of all I want my blog post to Spread Love, Shed Light and Give Life.
I’ve always been so private and extremely careful with whom I share things with. But I’ve learned that there is so much power in transparency. Being vulnerable builds character and also strengthens relationships. “à La Goddess Talk” was created as a safe space, for me to freely express myself, with hopes of connecting with and building a bond with my Goddess gang.
At my #1 favorite place to be, The Beach! In 2016, I fell into a really bad depression that lasted a few years. One day at work I couldn't stop thinking about the beach. I opened my Twitter app and there was a beautiful picture of an island with crystal clear water. As soon as I start my car, after work, the first word I hear on the radio was "beach". It was at that moment I knew I had to be on the beach. I drove straight from work to the nearest beach, it was about an hour and a half drive. I didn't care that it was already 5pm and it might be dark by the time I arrived. I just needed to see why I couldn't keep my mind off the beach. When I got to the beach, I felt a sense of peace immediately after I got out my car. I took off my shoes and walked up to the beach. The sun was setting behind me, but in front of me was the moon rising. It was so beautiful and a hot pink color. I had never seen the moon this color before. I later found out that it was the 'Strawberry full moon". I always felt connected to the moon, and this day confirmed it. I made a beach pallet, laid down to enjoy the view and vibes. It was the best feeling ever. And thennnnnn, out of no where I hear what sounds like an old lady with a squeaky voice singing "Let it go, let it go. Can't hold it back anymore". When I turned around it was a guy with a pretty Cockatoo on his shoulder, the bird was singing to me! (well maybe not me, but he caught my attention lol). I walked up to the guy and the bird, the bird said to me "hey cutie" I laughed so hard, because am I getting hit on by a bird on the beach?? lol On that day I learned that the beach is my happy place. Anything that had me stressed or depressed driving to the beach was no longer on my mind at all. It's almost as if I dumped all of my worries in the ocean, and let them drift far away. And from that day on I go to the beach to create, empty my thoughts and clear my head, meditate, exercise, and I even pray on the beach. I feel love all around me at the beach. & God is Love. God is the greatest artist of all time. I later moved closer to beach, 15 minutes away now. One day the beach will be my backyard. If you've never tried it, go to the beach when you're stuck between a rock and a hard place. Go to the beach and get inspired. Go to the beach and soak up the sun, dig your toes in the sand to get grounded. Cleanse yourself in the ocean. Let the salt water wet your scalp. Nature is the best form of medication. And a Lady is most definitely a Spiritual Gangster with a Soft Spot for Nature.
Deep Thought: What prayer are you living today?
