“Live righteously and love everyone, you will build up around you an aura of light and love.”
Such wise words from my tea this morning. It isn’t always easy to follow this advice and we all know loving everyone can be a challenge. However, if you can just try to meet people where they are, that can make it a bit easier. No one is perfect, we are all learning. Do your best to send love and light to people even when it is hard. I am reminding myself of all this as well.

❣️When the heart is activated, there is no longer a desire to hold onto resentments, grudges, or judgments. It is simply a relief to fall back into unconditional acceptance. This feeling is so profound and beautiful, that you wish everyone can experience it! To experience the beauty and relief of letting go, accepting things as they are, and choosing to stay heart-centered no matter the situation. The ecstasy of returning to truth, which is love. Recently, I have been experiencing this urge to just love! Even though many things in my life are testing me and if I choose to I could drown myself in a pool of sorrow and anger. But really I just want to drop all of the bullshit, remaining in the heart and staying grateful for everything that comes in and out of my life. For it all serves its purpose to awaken me, and is a crystal clear reflection of the Self. What I am learning is, unfortunately, not everyone can meet you there. And this is just calling me to embrace acceptance even more! Even when I can fully visualize the reality in which we can all love unconditionally, accept, and honor each other’s roles in our lives, it honestly disappoints me when somebody’s resistance to this causes them to throw up walls and suppress emotions. But hey, this is just teaching me to embody what I am speaking on the deepest level. As much as I would like to mend relationships with mutual acceptance and understanding, not everyone is ready. Not everyone has gone through the process that leads you to realize there is no point in holding onto anything that isn’t love, that isn’t the One. When we close our hearts, it may seems like we are protecting ourselves from experiencing more pain, but really all we are doing is turning away from love. We can accept things as they are, even when having falling outs, or feel hurt and betrayed. Holding on simply creates karma and sets you up for another round of painful lessons. So I’m choosing to remain in my heart, love, accept, and let go while honoring and thanking all that I am letting go of. And though I can see a higher vibrational timeline and wish for that, I accept everything as perfectly aligned in order to awaken me. ❣️
Don't let a thing that happened to you destroy you for life. We are all strong, everyone deserves love and peace of mind. We shouldn't have to be scared, fear creates a long road to cross over but once you handle the fear and fully deal with the situation it won't be in your mind everyday, causing you to not be able to do anything but sit in your room. Just before you judge someone imagine the load of shit that person has been through and empathize with their situation. Love one another and show some compassion, forgive your enemies. You don't have to forget what what was done to you. Come to terms and eventually you need to accept that what happened, happened. Instead of always pushing what happened to the back of your mind. It's hard to forgive when the situation has really messed you up. But just know there are people who are here for you and love you. Get help and do healthy things to help your mindset. 🌸
I wanted to take some time to share w/you all why I have this page💕 I guess we can kinda call this a little "tea time" talk😜
I started this page to just let you know a little more about the one married to the @oolaguru 💕❤️💕 I just posted pics of our family for you to get to know us from a "wife or mommy" perspective😀 I also wanted you to know I have a strong faith:) I will be the first to tell you I am a baby Christian, but I am always working on growing in a way He wants me to:)😀 Later on I found a joy in creating jewelry. The Lord knows I cannot create all these pieces for myself so I started giving pieces away:)
Through all this I've come to realize my mission statement: To randomly gift pieces of my art to people in this world, so they will want/have a deeper relationship with God💕🙏🏻💕 He nudged me to give more than I sell💕 Enjoy your day💕 God is good🙏🏻...and yes, I absolutely love no makeup days😜#keepingthefaith#Heguidesme#oolalife#oolafaith#loveoneanother#happy#mymissionstatement
What I have witnessed and experienced is that when I chose love, I always chose the right thing. The most important relationship that I’ll ever have is the relationship I have with myself; then comes the relationships that I’ll share with someone else. We r here to love and to be loved. Of course the most beautiful relationship I have is ultimately with God, which is the most important. I want to say that love always wins over hate. Some time we forget how important and valuable we are! Sometimes we forget to love ourself 1st, before loving someone else. Understand that u should love urself be4 u love someone else. Value yourself, know ur worth, build yourself. When u know ur worth and value yourself, trust me, they gonna know how valuable u are too. They gonna know ur worth! Everything starts with u, so love ur self. U r beautiful the way u r!! B4 we try to find what we want in others, we have to know and find that in ourselves 1st. We should complete ourselves be4 trying to complete someone else or trying to find someone who gonna complete us. #love#God#belive#growth#relationship#trust#value#worth#worldstar#shaderoom#motivation#inspiration#vision#knowyourworth#knowyourself#loveoneanother#model#stylist#actor#designer#creator#entrepreneur#businessowner#businessman#vfoundation#v 💎 V 💎

"It is a law of nature that you cannot reap without sowing. That's why it's so important to give first, before you expect to receive. This give and take is natural, like breathing. You take in air; you blow it out. You can never just breathe in. Nor can you just breathe out. Both are continually essential. Likewise, we give to others and receive from them. Our lives are like a river, not a reservoir. What we have should flow through us to others. The moment the good things we have to offer begin flowing from ourselves to others, the miracle of intentional significance begins to happen. The more we share, the more we have. The more we have, the more we can give. That's how we build a life that matters."
-John C. Maxwell
So this happened last week before school started. A lot of us got together to feed the children and parents in Ogden. The kids got free haircuts, face painting...But the best part, they got a free backpack of their choice full of school supplies. Hundreds of kids and parents came to the event. Next year we have more barbers, stylist and business owners wanting to volunteer to help our Ogden kids and their education. I hope one day I have a chance to help my whole state, then my country, then the whole world, but for now I’ll focus on helping my home town and these kids with school supplies. #ogden
THIS is why Lucy makes her blankets! Because we meet kids like Tre who quickly find their way into our hearts and will permanently stay there! We get to know their stories, we develop relationships with their parents and our hearts are changed forever. Tre was one of our first ones when we started. We have followed his story and prayed hard for him and his family. When we see posts like this, it reminds us why we’re doing this. We love Tre and couldn’t be happier for him. He has been a happy little warrior in every sense. And still is! ❤️ #welovetre#wealwayswill#lucysloveblankets
