Faith in the process

Good morning! Hope all is well.

There seems to be a lot going on. Then again it feels like it could be my  perception that’s making it seem so. I say that because I chose to do all these things this week.

Imagine this; I’m moving, canceling services, haven’t even begun to do my taxes yet and I have no source of income besides the business I’m currently working to get off the ground.

But one thing I have to make sure I keep is faith. Because I know God hasn’t led me this far for me to give up. I just have to have faith in the journey and keep giving the world what I have to offer.

Through it all you can never give up. If you do how will you ever know your true potential?

Wanted to keep this short and sweet.  I have a very busy day ahead of me. I hope you were able to gain inspiration from this post.

Try the soap that caters to YOU!! LuLusLavishLathers.com.

Keep a l👀k out for our 6 new additions.

  • Healing Hands- made with honey, tumeric, essentials and 100% organic plant base oils ( as are all the other soaps)
  • Spearwood- made with essential oils is great for blemishes dark spots and helping to keep the skin soft and supple.
  • Peppermint- Not a new soap but has become a favorite for many of my customers. Provides the skin with a cooling sensation because of the natural menthol peppermint produces. Leaves you feeling refreshed and squeaky clean.
  • Mosaic- Made with natural base oils and fragrance. This soap smells like a perfume but is not at all drying to the skin. Do largely in part to its foundation.
  • Big Red- not sure, but the name may change. Made with fragrance oil and smells devine. It also has a very satisfying lather. Made with only the best oils and butters for your skin.
  • Creamsicle- Very light scent. Feels like heaven on the skin.
  • Ugli- Smell is pleasant. Suitable for an older gentleman. Has the same great lather and feel as every other soap provided.

As Always

Going through the Motions

Good Morning!!!

As always I hope everyone is doing well. First off I have to say there is a reason that I haven’t been blogging lately. There have been some things that I’ve been going through and feelings have been fluctuating. Some days I feel good other days I feel deep and in my feelings, but either way I’m going to find a way to push through.

Recently I met someone I believed could have been a beautiful distraction, but later realized what he was offering I was not a connoisseur of. But I’m not going to lie, I had fun through the learning process. The only thing about it was the feelings that come after everything is said and done.

So now I’m stuck by myself. I have family and friends, but I am not as close to them all as I should be. Reason for that is; my constant need to be in a relationship or in this case a “situationship”. I’ve always managed to forget what I have going on and worry more about the man in my life. I guess I feel that way because I’ve never experienced the feeling of a man being absolutely crazy about me. I’m sure many women know what I mean.

What that stems from is not having a real male figure in my life who showed me love and affection. True there was a male figure in my life, but he never showed me love and kindness. What ever he did for me he wanted a pat on the back for, it never came from the heart. So as a result of growing up with a male like that as a role model, I unintentionally sot out men who were like him. When I tell you I had no idea that’s what I was doing until I got in my mid-thirties!

I really feel like I wasted time. So many times I swallowed my opinions and feelings to keep receiving the attention of a man. Truth be told I’ve never felt worthy of any mans attention, because all the men in my life while growing up left or treated me poorly; my father, step-father, guys I went to school with, and teenage boyfriends.

Many people may believe it’s possible to raise a child with only one parent being in their child’s life. It may be true, but it wasn’t the case for me. I feel I would have developed more of a balanced opinion on men and women if I had more male figures in my life. Hell, if I had even one stable positive male role model in my life growing up I wouldn’t have such  low expectations of the men who come in my life. But I know that it’s something I have to learn and grow from.

On to the next…..
