Which is worse, when a good friend moves away or losing touch with a good friend who lives right next to me?

Jan 13, 12:18PM EST0

Kcampos91 it really depends on you and the type of relationship. I would say when you lose touch with a good friend next to you because it means that, one or both are failing the other person.  You are supposed to love thy neighbor as thyself so in keeping with that reach out to that person.  The friend that move away can be called, texted, visited, FaceTimed, etc but at least the communication seems to be there, the address just changed.  As far the one next door, take the first step to reconciling, after all thy what “good friends” do.  The fact that you are asking, means that you care.  So do what you need to do to get that friendship back on track.  I have faith in you!

What limiting beliefs can someone hold in life?

Jan 12, 10:36PM EST0

Gilbert any beliefs that tell you that you can only do certain things or that you will never do things are limiting beliefs.  Your thoughts, words and perspective can create limiting beliefs.   Anything that does not empower you limits you.  Stop believing that you can’t and believe you can!  You are not your circumstances or your situations, you have greatness within you!  #BIGGER

What empowering beliefs can I take on to help me achieve my goals?

Jan 12, 4:13PM EST1

Kristy believe and know thy you are wonderfully made.  That you are decibels design with His purpose in mind.  Believe in the power of I AM!  Release limiting beliefs that limit your dreams and actions.  Live intentionally, serve intentionally and be intentional!  Make sure you stand in your truth and live on purpose with purpose from this moment on!

How can I know people enabling me or holding me back in life?

Jan 12, 3:06PM EST0

Monica, be honest with self, are they adding to your life or taking away.  Pay close attention to what they do, not what they say.  If they were no longer around, how would your life be affected?  Chances are if you are asking this question to me, the question came up in your spirit.  You are a blessing to be around, make sure people value you.  What is the nature of the relationship?  Know that it's ak to outgrow people, places and things!  Pruning is necessary.   Everyone can't go with you into your next season.

Jan 12, 3:18PM EST0

Thanks everyone for you participation!  This has been awesome!  I hope and pray that it helped each and everyone!  Be sure to reach out to me via facebook, instagram or twitter.  Check out my book:  see link below!  Blessings of Abundance, Deana!

How did you identify your hand me down blues?

Jan 12, 3:04PM EST0

Fredierick, It took awhile before I could identify what I call the "hand me done blues".  What I thought initially was that I was just sentimental and that things and traditions served as forever connections to people no longer in my life.  As I matured and became wiser, i realized that the very things that should have made me happy or brought me joy, instead brought me heartache, pain, strife and confusion.  I didn't really know why I was holding on, I just thought I had to hold on.  As I begin to see things divide families after deaths or divorces, I realized that these things were "hand me down blues" and really had no sentimental value.  I had to learn to let go.  I also had to learn to give uo the right for the wrong at times!

Why do u consider yourself a victim? Do U occasionally have fladhbacks

Jan 12, 2:54PM EST0

No I am more than a conqueror!  I am better and not bitter!  

Jan 12, 3:02PM EST0

If you are heaving "flashbacks" chances are you haven't healed through those issues yet!  For such a time as this, you are ready!  Deal with whats been dealing with you, you are more than a conqueror!

How are your book sales?  Has your book moved U into a different realm of ppl?

Jan 12, 2:53PM EST0

Book sales continue to stadily increase, however my goal is to get it in to treatment, recovery acenters and shelters.  I will also use it to educate people in various ways.  My book and my voice has opened new doors and I find myself really reaching people that I don't knwo.  It is easier sometimes to share your story with people you dont know due to fear of judgement.  This platform today, is evidence that I continue to move into new realms of people and platforms!

Jan 12, 3:01PM EST0

Tell me, why do U consider yourself a victim? Do U have flashbacks? What inspired U to write ur   book? Are ur book sales increasing?

Jan 12, 2:50PM EST0

Margaret, for so long I had a victim mentality.  You feel sorry for yourself, you blame yourself for the actions of others.  Not knowing your self worth and value, you find yourself vulnerable and without a voice.  With all that happened to me, I was lost but no longer!  I have flashbacks or shall I say new episodes of things longed covered up but when they come to the surface, I deal with them in a healthy way.  I know that I am not a victim instead a victor!..  I was inspired to write my book because I realize that what happened to me was bigger than me.  I believd if I could help others, I would be walking in my purpose!  I also find myself healing by continuing to share my story but God gets all the Glory!

Jan 12, 2:57PM EST0

You all have asked some great questions and I am sure they are helpful to all!

Jan 12, 2:42PM EST0

Which is worse in life, failing or never trying?

Jan 12, 2:30PM EST0

Nora, thanks for joining!  Never trying is worse than failing because you can fail forward.  What that means is that you will never know what you can do or what you are capable of if you never try.  If you try and you do fail, you realize that it did not kill you.  You take away valuable lessons in life and the next time you just might succeed.  If not, keep trying because you are moving closer to your goal.

How do u keep your faith from weavern? You Kno GOD is able, he can but will he?

Jan 12, 2:20PM EST1

The thing to remember is that we are human and although we are made in His image, we are not Him.  What we must know is that God is faithful!  Even when our faith waivers, God is faithful!  Trust God when you can't trace Hi,!  The Holy Spirit interceded on our behalf when we can not.

Why should I live my life to the fullest right now?

Jan 12, 2:20PM EST0

Should I be afraid of letting others get close to me?

Jan 12, 9:07AM EST0

The only time you should be afraid of letting others get close to you is when you are not able to trust yourself!  You are not powerless, you are powerful!  People can only treat you how you allow them to treat you.stand in you truth!  Know what you want, know what you will accept and know what you will not accept.  I have raised my daughter to know who she is, what she deserves and that people don’t get to treat her how they want to treat her; they treat her how she deserves to be treated!

In other words, know thyself and know thy worth! Know what you deserve and accept nothing less!

Why is it that many people do so many things they don’t like and like so many things they don’t do?

Jan 12, 8:48AM EST0

I would say that this happens due to lack of identity and lack of empowerment.  We often become who and what others want us to be in order to appease people and situations.  At some point resentment settles in and change eventually happens.  

Prace at all cost, it no peace at all!  I learned that the hard way.

Now I speak and live my truth and we are all better for it!

If you could offer a child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

Jan 12, 5:21AM EST0

edpal if I could offer a child one piece of advice, it would be to be prepared for the unexpected! That simply prepares you for  He unexpected because life happens!  

My parents died when I was young, my siblings and I became wards of the court, life happened over and over but I don’t think we were ever told to be prepared for the unexpected.  Each knock in life seem to hit harder and harder.  I learned over time that I should expect the unexpected that way, it didn’t hurt so bad..

What is your purpose in life? Why do you exist and what is your mission?

Jan 12, 5:06AM EST0

Sonia15 I want to be clear, are y’all ou asking in general or me personally?  I will answer from my personal standpoint.  If this is not what you are asking please let me know.  My purpose, existence and mission are all connected.  I was created to serve.  My goal is to draw people closer to God!  I strive to let my light shine.  I know that I leave things and people better than when we first met!  I evoke laughter and joy amid sorrow.  I am a ray of sunshine and although I know what sorrow, pain an darkness is, I choose life and light!

So many people exist and forget to live.  One of my favorite quotes is:  the greatest privilege of life is to live it! ~Oprah

my mission is to help others heal, forgive and move forward!  I facilitate clarity personally and professionally.

 You must know who you are and what you require in order to do what it is you aspire to do! ~DEANA WILLIAMS
