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

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…

My Thoughts on Love Is...

As I always say, when the love is real it not meant for anyone on the outside to understand. I always ask women “what would they do for love?” Some women answer, while some just look at me like I’m crazy. Everyone loves to claim they have a limitation on love. However, as one told me you only have limitation when you haven’t met your match. Now, before I could write this story I had to re-watch this series twice just to make sure I was understanding what I was watching. Therefore, after watching this show I got something to say and it won’t be pretty. My new addiction celebrating black love is Love Is”, which tells the origin story of a modern-day love, before social media came and destroyed well trying to destroy love for everyone. This show has become the topic of discussion more than this season of “Insecure” (I’m still waiting for that wow moment of this season). Love Is_ is set in '90s. And tells the story of two Black creatives who fall for each other quickly. Nuri works as…

What to Do When A Person Ghost You

We all knew this day was coming and now it time I write about it. This Sunday night, was the season finale of “insecure." Now, before I get to the point of the story I must share my thoughts of this whole season. I was looking for that spark this season like season one, and two, but I didn’t receive one until the end. Even the whole Daniel and Issa storyline that was a letdown. When I saw she brought back Lawrence I was hoping that finally they would work it out, but again Lawrence on that bitch ass shit. However, the relationship between Nathan and Issa was the talk on black twitter. While Issa thoughts she finally met a good guy who challenge her, Nathan proved that “the lighter the eyes, the bigger the lies.” While we have to wait until Next Year to see exactly where this relationship will go, Nathan pulled a move that was close to home for many people. It hurt like hell when a person leave you without any warning or reasons. It leave you asking yourself, “What did you do?” We…
