Story Of The Month: The journey of loving yourself to purpose by Tamela R. Story

Tamela R Story- Jones is a Mother, Wife, Student, Entrepreneur, Author, Speaker, Community Advocate and is extremely in love with Christ. She is the C.E.O and Founder of Story’s SAFEhaven, which is an organization geared towards providing resources for adult and children survivors of childhood sexual abuse.  She is also the Founder of the I am #Purposed Empowerment Conference and the author of the I am#Purposed book. She is currently a student at SHNU majoring in International Business. During this past year, God has been dealing with her about trusting in him completely and boldly walking in her God-given purpose. With that in mind, pursuing her purpose has allowed her to push others to do the same.  It is her belief that it is God’s desire that we all acknowledge, embrace and walk body in our purpose.  Knowing, that we were all created on purpose and for a purpose and that there’s nothing that you can’t do and  nothing you can’t achieve. YOU ARE PURPOSED!”

Dear Sis,
There were so many things that were going through my mind when I was asked to write you a letter. I knew that I wanted to encourage you. I wanted you to read this letter and be inspired.  I wanted you to walk away knowing that you can do ALL things through Christ that gives you strength and no matter what obstacles you may face, that you can and will conquer them all.  That was my desire. But the question was how? How do I get you to that point? How can I convince you that you were created on purpose and for a purpose? How can I convince you to understand that anything that approaches you that doesn’t align with your purpose shouldn’t be entertained.  That, the greatness that’s inside of you waiting to bust out exceeds your expectations of yourself.  That you are great beyond measure. Seriously. How? How can I convince you to trust in who God has created you to be. Where do I being? Where does it all begin? Then it hit me…….. It begins with self-love. Look sis, in order for you to achieve what so ever you desire, you must first master self-love.  Love conquers all right?  Maybe you desire a   healthier lifestyle , healthier relationships, being a successful entrepreneur etc. It all begins with self-love. Because when you love something.. I mean truly love it. You treat it with care, because to you it’s fragile. So you are very aware of how you handle it. It’s precious to you. You spend time getting to know it, you tend to it, and you care for it and your trust it completely. Then in return, it becomes successful because of the love you put into it. The secret to success begins with self-love. Love yourself and trust in yourself enough to pursue your God given purpose. Knowing that without a shadow of a doubt that you deserved it, you earned it and you can achieve it. Self-love is the best love. You Are#Purposed 

Sealed with love,
Your Sister

The Top Five Worst Women To Be In A Relationship With

Well, I was asked, and I deliver so to speak. Even though I don’t post the letters of questions I receive from women, I still answer back. And I read these letters seeing how women answer their own questions, to why they have relationship problems. I knew if I wrote this article that I would be label as a “pick me” and that not even the case. I’m far from a “pick me” but I have observed certain behavior where I knew why these women were still single. This list is not only for my readers, writing this made me look at some of my actions as well in what areas I need to work on as I continue to grow as a woman. Before I wrote this, I had to ask 5 men, and these were the women they chose who gave them hell. Yes, I’m aware that some of these actions were fueled by the hand of men who let them down and broke their heart. But it's no point to carry that into your next relationship. Like I always say you don’t have to agree with me, but it has to be written. So, here are the top five wors…

When Hurt People Hurt: Nas and Kelis

You can’t fix what you didn’t break. Sometimes the demons we face, are not the person we’ve dated fault. We’ll never know the demons anyone truly face, until they decide if they want to take it out on us. We try to be there and show them something different but soon realize their demons are slowly killing us. As I come to learn a man is his mother image. A man is what his mother make him to be, he may carry out some of his father actions; but his character come from his mother. Like a woman is what her father tell her to be. Whether he speak it with his words or speak it with his actions (by not being in her life), a woman carry her father words with her everywhere she goes and in all of her relationships. That why sometimes when a man is reckless, if his mother understand his actions then no one else opinion of him even matter. Vice versa with a woman. We chose to play doctor but doesn’t stay around to fully cure that person injuries. We just add more cuts, to an already wounded soul…

Dating In Memphis: Top 5 Places To Go On a Date In Memphis

If you’re from Memphis then you know everyone favorite line here is “it nothing to do in Memphis”. Before last year I used to think the same thing. Going to the same hangouts, and eating at the same restaurants then getting on social media crying about how it nothing to do here or Memphis isn’t safe anymore. And of course, everyone favorite line "they shut down all the fun places in Memphis". It wasn’t until one night that I went out, and I had the time of my life at a place I never been before. The crazy part is I drove past this place several times not knowing it was a great place to hang out, and have fun (then the food was good). Since everyone here claim it nothing to do in Memphis, it leads to lack of creativity in the dating department. Well, this is where I step in and try to help. Dating is what keep the relationship alive. No matters how long you been with the person, you still have to date that person to keep that fire burning. The thing is nowhere in this univers…
