I want to talk to my young queens, my sisters, my daughters, who have been scarred by past relationships. Every day I think of you and just want to convey some words of encouragement. Ni maombi yangu kwamba maneno yangu kuwasha baadhi ya kusafiri nafsi na kuongeza imani yako katika binafsi. A belief that many of you have lost.

I am aware that when you settle for a little affection, or less, just to feel accepted, it keeps you on an endless journey for acceptance or love from others that you will never find. Its effects leave you down, huzuni na mara nyingi kushindwa na tu anaongeza kwa scarring yako ya kihisia,,en,Upendo na furaha itajidhihirisha kwa kujikubali mwenyewe kwa wewe,,en.

Going through life wondering what everyone thinks creates the roadblocks and detours that keep you from truly experiencing life and its blessings. Kwa nini? You stay focused on the negative energy, thoughts and whispers.

All beauty comes from within.

Love and happiness will manifest itself by your accepting yourself for who you are.

I know sometimes it’s a bit difficult to see your worth among all the negative energy in your environment. You have to know that disease you are letting manifest afflicts your self-esteem and your very soul. By giving all your attention to outside influences and opinions, you are simply setting yourself up for more failure. Hakuna jambo gani, the external will never replace how you feel inside. Challenging yourself, transforming who you are, may be harder than you would ever imagine. Hata hivyo, when you start truly analyzing yourself and making the awesome discoveries and begin to love who you are for who you are, love will outweigh the struggle and opinions of others.

Great things will happen!

You are beautiful and capable of whatever you put your mind to.

Explore the true meaning of life and discover the faith, hope and motivation necessary for your journey. What others think and their negativity will no longer matter as you realize acceptance and confidence comes from within.The shield of independence and belief in yourself will block all negativity and concerns about yourself.

Stand firm.

Take back your power.

Believe and you will achieve!

“For power is the ability to define your reality and then have others respond to your definition.” – Dk. Wade Nobles

These are my words of encouragement to you.
