Flowers Blooming by Regina Weston

You are not Average or Ordinary. God put a part of Himself in you. You are destined to do great things. You have your Heavenly Father’s DNA. He made man out of dust. He spoke worlds into existence. Death and Life is in the power of your tongue as well. And when you realize who you are it changes things. You can begin to say, I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. 


When you know who you are, you will begin to think and talk like a winner. You can Build, Create, Establish, Own and Lead.

You were born to win, to overcome, to walk in victory, and to be courageous. It doesn’t matter what your present situation looks like, what family you come from or your educational and financial background. Freedom is yours, restoration is yours, and good grace is yours, abundance is yours. It’s in your DNA. You don’t have to get the short end of the stick. When thoughts tell you otherwise, denounce it by saying, I know who I am, and who’s I am. Cast down every negative thought and perception of yourself. If no one has ever told you who you are, let me be the first. You are loved, strong, beautiful, intelligent and you have the right to be happy, live happy and in the land of Blessings.   

You are a Blooming Flowers….

Celebrate Life by Regina Weston

                           “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” --- Mae West





LadiesHappy New Year!
            
Throw up your hands; it’s time to celebrate yourselves. Forget about what was, what was supposed to be, as well as, would’ve, should’ve and could’ve. That was yesteryear. Turn on the faucet, wash your face and then look in the mirror with a new outlook on life because you have washed away the past. It’s time for you to celebrate your present. You have overcome struggles and challenges which mean you are a better person.

There is perfection in the world despite the stories that are being told. And you have the ability to choose how you live and with whom you share memories. Value your right to choose: choice is powerful. What was, no longer has to be your narrative. You are loved and have the capability to do the same.  

Every day you wake up is reason to Celebrate Life. Don’t let new opportunities pass you by. Don’t be afraid to try new things, experience new things, create new things and taste… eat new things.

No more contemplating, procrastinating, it’s your time to be a go-getter. The tree bears much fruit and we all can be partakers of it.

Ladies vow to walk in unity and togetherness with your fellow sister, showing no shade to each other, no need to stab someone in the back with harsh words or deeds. No more Hating on the next woman. Again… the tree bears much fruit, we are sisters, we share a common bond, we all give life, and therefore it’s time to nurture it. Let’s help one another reach the finish line. We’re going to Celebrate Life together, that is what it’s all about at the end of the day… LIVING and being Happy about it!

Secrets Kill by Regina Weston


Do Secrets kill…; yes they do, slowly, mentally and emotionally, when you hold on to heartache caused by one thing or another. This is why the Mending Hearts Newsletter was created, the articles written are thought provoking with the purpose to start the process of healing in your life. Believe it or not, you are not alone, there are many women who share similar experiences and stories they just narrate theirs differently.

Hurt and Pain cripples you. It gnaws at you like a cancer, destroying your heart first. Instead of confronting your pain, you nurse it as a woman would a newborn child. By feeding it, washing it and clothing it, until it gets too big for you to handle. But it doesn’t have to be this way, for God is always available and ready to listen, to heal and restore, the brokenhearted. (1 Peter 5:7) Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you.”

And then there are Counselors, Pastors, Family Therapist as well as trusted friends and family that can help guide you into confronting and releasing whatever secrets in your life that has you by the throat. I’m asking that you deal with the past, as well as, present wounds, so that you can have a brighter outlook for tomorrow. Healing, for you, can begin right now. It's time for you to live. You have too much to offer the world, and other women need to hear your story. Lay down the crutches and take baby steps towards your healing...

Lose The Baggage by Regina Weston

Many women struggle with low self-esteem, body image, psychological and emotional issues despite of their status and accomplishments. Some of their inner struggles can be contributed to their upbringing, circumstances and environment: hence childhood experiences.

Negative experiences have a scary way of dictating the lives of some women from beginning to end: achievements, failures, drugs use, relationships, sexual partners/promiscuity.

Women are often looked upon as Super Woman but that is a superficial title in some respect, for women are flesh and bone, and a canon ball of emotion. Some love hard, play hard, work hard, grieve hard and I can continue on and on but there is a deeper truth, and that is, every emotional scar cannot be patched up with a band aid. Every ill word can't be dismissed. And physical bruises have a tendency to leave behind lasting marks.

We all have a story to tell and many women convey and channel theirs in different forms of expressions. There are reasons behind everything we do and say. At times, some women really don't have a clue as to why they do what they do. Asking, "What was I thinking?" Yet, it is the underline issues, that woman fail to address that drives unthinkable behavior and demeanors.

It is easy to say, acknowledge it, deal with it, and then get over it. More easily said than done. But women, we do have to learn to accept the things that we cannot change and change the things that we can. Holding onto baggage that negatively impacted your life in one way or the other, eventually can lead to your downfall if you don’t deal with it in the right manner.

For some women, inner turmoil ignites a fire under their feet and they become go-getters but at what cost and who’s expense. And some women heartache leads them to door number two, and behind that door are drugs, promiscuity, self-mutilation, and unimaginable destruction.

I beseech women to exfoliate every repugnant word, negative body image, heartache, revolting and unconstructive thought planted in your psyche by others or yourself. Release it, layer by layer as you would an onion and then discard it, forever. Treat it like vomit, once it’s out, who wants to go back and lick it up?

It’s time for you to breathe, inhale, exhale, relax and release. Let go of unnecessary baggage and become a better you. Life is like a vapor, you’re here today and gone today, and with that being said, there’s no time to waste. Don’t waste valuable energy dwelling on things from your past. Instead create a better today for yourself. And how do you do that, you ask? One day at a time. My favorite quote, “Rome wasn’t built in a day but it was built, rock by rock”. And this is the same way that you tackle the things in your life, a day at a time. . . dealing with obstacles, adversities accordingly.

What doesn’t kill you... use it to become stronger!

The Annoying Flies In Your Life by Regina Weston


Flies for most people represent disease, decay and death besides being annoying, pestering little creatures that buzz around your ears and face in hot weather. Often landing on food and flocking to feces and other decomposing things. However like every other living thing flies have a reason for existing.


For Forensic Entomologist, they (maggots) serve the purpose of establishing the time of death in human’s corpse and the place of death. They also identify chemicals presented in a person’s body at the time of death. In addition to that flies feed on dead carcasses aiding in the decomposition process.


Flies are also a source of food for toads, spiders, birds and other animals and insects. “And the reason flies swarm around a person face and head is because they are attracted to carbon dioxide in the breath,” (Courtesy of Jeffery Hann, University of Minnesota Extension Service).


Like the fly which serves a purpose in the world so does the words, low self-esteem, self-doubt, brokenness and other words related to these.
These words reflect the assessment of a person’s self-worth in their eyes. Negative feelings about one’s self can lead a person into a place that can be detrimental to ones physical and mental health, such as drug abuse, food disorders, suicide and alcoholism. But there is always a bright light at the end of the tunnel. Negative words and emotions can be exchange for new ones, such as secure, self- assured and confident. Positive words can redefine the life, feelings and character of women in spite of the adversities they’ve experienced.


This is why Mending Hearts Newsletter was established. The objective is to uplift, encourage and to inspire all women to embrace who they are. Women no longer have to be bound by low self-esteem, self-doubt, brokenness and hurt due to situations, experiences or circumstances.


Women hold the key to their happiness and once the veil is removed from their eyes the sun will shine brighter. Their smiles will glow and their pearly whites will show. They will learn to love themselves, (self-love) first. Acknowledging and then accepting that they have a purpose and a destiny to fulfill in this world.


As the fly touches the lives of many leaving its mark in the world, women it’s time for you to shake the dust off your feet, the chains off your ankles and start taking baby steps towards your future that holds so many positive opportunities for you. Beside you have a story to tell that will transform the lives of other women that believe they’re alone in this world? And that no one understands their pain or struggles.


Flies have never allowed negativity to deter them from their purpose in the earth. They continue to swarm and enjoy the carbon dioxide that escapes the breath of humans. They assist the leather leaf tree through there pollination process. And no one wants to be eaten but flies often sacrifice their life so that tad poles, spiders and birds can survive.


Now if a fly can accomplish so many positive things in its short life span that means (women) you can too. You just have to find what your good at and then make it work for you. Everyone has a talent or two or three. The key to your happiness has been placed back into your hands, open the door. Smell the fresh air, step outside and let the earth become your footstool.
