...so many more than I deserve. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Depression has a way of making you unrecognizable to yourself and the ones you love. This year through @belle.ame.speaks I’ve been able to see and share more of myself than ever before and I’m so grateful for the change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thankful that God never gave up on me (and never will!). Thankful that my family has always stood by me (and always will!). Thankful for old friends and new that put up with me 😂. Thankful that I never gave up me (even when it was hard not to). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who can you extend a second (or fifth) chance to today? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎈🎈🎈 . . . #belleamespeaks #beautifulsoul #belleaffirmations #faith #empowerment #selflove #depressionawareness #positivethinking #healingquotes #mentalhealthadvocate #faithquotes #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #ChristianLiving #postpartumdepression #influencenetwork #selfappreciation #biblestudy #selfcarethreads #selfhelptools #overcomingdepression #depressionhelp #knowyourworth #changeyourlife #goodvibes #quoteoftheday #adviceoftheday #anxietyhelp #mentalhealthrecovery #blackmentalhealth

This week ... BELLE ÂME SPEAKS TURNS ONE!! I intend to celebrate with a heart of thanksgiving all week long! 🥰🙌🏾 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ First up, I’m thankful for my support system! That’s right - family, friends, sorors, coworkers, and all of you! Belle âme is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done because of the degree of vulnerability and transparency that it requires from me. However from the moment I shared this idea and every day since, the support and response has been nothing short of mind blowing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe you’ve been where I was, content on the sidelines as the cheerleader and mostly ok with not getting in the game. If I’m being honest, I figured if I was the one in the game no one would show up. 🤷🏾‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WRONG!! Y’all showed up and SHOWED OUT!! 🥳😝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Turns out, I can support the ones I love, and the ones I love can and WILL support me too. I am so thankful for each and every one of you. Love you all! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘🥰 🎈🎈🎈 . . . #belleamespeaks #beautifulsoul #belleamespeaksturnsone #belleaffirmations #faith #empowerment #selflove #depressionawareness #positivethinking #healingquotes #mentalhealthadvocate faithquotes #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #ChristianLiving #postpartumdepression #influencenetwork #selfappreciation #biblestudy #selfcarethreads #selfhelptools #overcomingdepression #depressionhelp #knowyourworth #changeyourlife #goodvibes #quoteoftheday #adviceoftheday #anxietyhelp #mentalhealthrecovery #blackmentalhealth

Life Saver + Soul Savior = Jesus. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ll keep it brief and just tell you how grateful I am that He is both. When I was at my LOWEST I would be stuck in this place of feeling like my life held no value even though I knew that Jesus thought enough of me to pay the ultimate price. In those moments I would beg Him to spare my life and to this day I am so grateful that He did. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re struggling... try Jesus. ✝️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎈🎈🎈 . . . #belleamespeaks #beautifulsoul #belleaffirmations #faith #empowerment #selflove #depressionawareness #positivethinking #healingquotes #mentalhealthadvocate #faithquotes #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #ChristianLiving #postpartumdepression #influencenetwork #selfappreciation #biblestudy #selfcarethreads #selfhelptools #overcomingdepression #depressionhelp #knowyourworth #changeyourlife #goodvibes #quoteoftheday #adviceoftheday #anxietyhelp #mentalhealthrecovery #blackmentalhealth

Who are you? : Victim. Villain. Victor. 🤔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes it can feel like all 3. All last week I was stuck bouncing between victim and villain, knowing that I needed to get to victor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My pride took a beating of epic proportions all throughout the week and it the blows just kept coming; Victim. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then when I confronted those feelings and people, I found out that I had inflicted the same hurt on them as I was feeling; Villain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Of course, I found myself mad that them for misunderstanding me; Victim. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then I let myself believe everything they said about me and allowed their words to “validate” the insecurities and lies I’ve worked so hard to dispel; Villain and Victim. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You get the idea. It’s been tough and my natural instinct is to overthink, over-correct, and avoid (if I’ve been MIA this week, this is why). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ BUT here’s the good part. At least I can self-assess and recognize that I’m in trouble. At least I can pray about it. At least I can share it (I really didn’t want to but God kept urging me). I feel confident I won’t be stuck for long. I’ve been praying and seeking God on this one. He’s definitely working on me so I’m not going to run from the lesson. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If y’all can pray for me I would appreciate it! This may not be my usual uplifting message but there is a testimony on its way. I promise!✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love you belle âmes!! 😘🎈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #belleamespeaks #beautifulsoul #belleaffirmations #VICTOR #faith #empowerment #selflove #depressionawareness #positivethinking #healingquotes #mentalhealthadvocate #faithquotes #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #ChristianLiving #postpartumdepression influencenetwork #selfappreciation #biblestudy #selfcarethreads #selfhelptools #overcomingdepression #depressionhelp #knowyourworth #changeyourlife #goodvibes #quoteoftheday #adviceoftheday #anxietyhelp #mentalhealthrecovery #blackmentalhealth

Just enough ain’t good enough. 🤭 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I’ll probably be talking about @adriandavisnow’s message at @tlwmcincy all week but let me just tell you... THIS LINE RIGHT HERE!!!! 👊🏾💥 Throat punch! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He was preaching from Joshua and talking about how the Israelites thought that the wilderness was freedom when in fact they hadn’t yet reached the promised land. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How often have you settled for “good enough” just because you were happy to have relief from your previous circumstances? How often have you given “just enough”, when you know you have more to offer? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yea... I’m lookin at you and side-eyeing me in the mirror too. Let’s both agree - we will be grateful for the “good” but we won’t stop until we reach “great”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have a great week belle âmes! 😘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎈🎈🎈 . . . #belleamespeaks #beautifulsoul #belleaffirmations #faith #empowerment #selflove #depressionawareness #positivethinking #healingquotes #mentalhealthadvocate #faithquotes #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #ChristianLiving #postpartumdepression #influencenetwork #selfappreciation #biblestudy #selfcarethreads #selfhelptools #overcomingdepression #depressionhelp #knowyourworth #changeyourlife #goodvibes #quoteoftheday #adviceoftheday #anxietyhelp #mentalhealthrecovery #blackmentalhealth.

Mic rolls around the floor and off the stage 🎤 #micdrop ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So today was amazing for 3 reasons: 1. @tlwmcincy celebrated their 6 year anniversary and I had the privilege of watching as the entire church celebrated @mike_jamal for his leadership. 🏆 2. Pastor @adriandavisnow delivered an incredible message and a powerful prophetic word. Each time I’ve heard him live there has been a major blessing to follow (like... belle âme speaks!). 🙌🏾 3. I finally tried the Popeyes sandwich 😂 #goodnotgreat ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have an amazing week belle âmes! 🎈🎈🎈 #belleamespeaks #beautifulsoul #belleaffirmations #faith #empowerment #selflove #depressionawareness #positivethinking #healingquotes #mentalhealthadvocate #faithquotes #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #ChristianLiving #postpartumdepression #influencenetwork #selfappreciation #biblestudy #overcomingdepression #depressionhelp #knowyourworth #goodvibes #quoteoftheday #adviceoftheday #anxietyhelp #mentalhealthrecovery #blackmentalhealth

Pride has been kicking my butt the last few weeks. #HELP! 😰 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m finding that I’m quick to take offense, slower to forgive, and dismissive of the things that actually deserve my attention. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So now that I’ve identified the problem I’m gonna try to fix it, but I’m not sure how... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Any suggestions belle âmes? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎈🎈🎈 . . . #belleamespeaks #beautifulsoul #belleaffirmations #faith #empowerment #selflove #depressionawareness #positivethinking #healingquotes #mentalhealthadvocate #faithquotes #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #ChristianLiving #postpartumdepression #selfappreciation #biblestudy #selfcarethreads #selfhelptools #overcomingdepression #depressionhelp #knowyourworth #changeyourlife #goodvibes #quoteoftheday #adviceoftheday #anxietyhelp #mentalhealthrecovery #blackmentalhealth

“... At the right time, I, the LORD, will make it happen.” (NLT) ⏲ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So... maybe it’s just me but I can’t help but to feel “behind” in some (*ahem* SO MANY *ahem*) areas in life. We’ve all heard the “run your own race” platitudes and they’re not wrong, but, like... 🤷🏾‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Two nights ago I was trying to stave off a pity party about this when I heard God tell me that I should forget my timeline. My timeline is my way of trying to control the events in my life because quite honestly - I’ve been lacking the faith needed to believe that God hasn’t forgotten me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So... I’m TRYING to enjoy the journey. He’s got it under control (right?? RIGHT.) Buh-bye timeline and let’s take full advantage of everything this season has to offer!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎈🎈🎈 . . . #belleamespeaks #beautifulsoul #belleaffirmations #faith #empowerment #selflove #depressionawareness #positivethinking #healingquotes #mentalhealthadvocate #faithquotes #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #ChristianLiving #postpartumdepression #influencenetwork #selfappreciation #biblestudy #selfcarethreads #selfhelptools #overcomingdepression #depressionhelp #knowyourworth #changeyourlife #goodvibes #quoteoftheday #adviceoftheday #anxietyhelp #mentalhealthrecovery #blackmentalhealth

“You are the lifter of my head...” 😌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you guys seen that gif/video of the two basketball players mid-game and one is walking away looking so defeated, head bent low, until his friend comes and literally lifts his head? It’s like something clicks and the other player suddenly remembers where he is and that the game wasn’t over yet! I’m so grateful that we have a Heavenly Father who can lift our spirits and remind us that we’re still in the game. Not to mention - this game has been rigged and spoiler alert - YOU WIN!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you feel like you just took a hit and your head is down replaying past mistakes, I encourage you to shake it off and get back in the game. It ain’t over yet!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love you belle âmes! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎈🎈🎈 . . . #belleamespeaks #beautifulsoul #belleaffirmations #faith #empowerment #selflove #depressionawareness #positivethinking #healingquotes #mentalhealthadvocate #faithquotes #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #ChristianLiving #postpartumdepression #influencenetwork #selfappreciation #biblestudy #selfcarethreads #selfhelptools #overcomingdepression #depressionhelp #knowyourworth #changeyourlife #goodvibes #quoteoftheday #adviceoftheday #anxietyhelp #mentalhealthrecovery #blackmentalhealth

They say a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life! 💁🏾‍♀️ # ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks to @ravishinghair I’m trimming more than spilt ends. I’m cut out all of the things that tried to break me.
