Unlearning is Hard + Considering My Own Feelings

* Previously recorded on July 20, 2022

As I became more self-aware and started to make changes (unlearn certain thought patterns and behaviors), I felt were necessary for me, I didn’t realize how hard it would be. In the process, I had to learn how to consider my own feelings but as a people pleaser of many years, this did not come easy nor was setting boundaries. I always felt responsible to explain myself to others but I realized that as you begin to make changes in your own life, you’re not going to be able to please everyone. Some will not understand, nor will they agree. Others may not even respect it and will decide to walk away because it’s not what they signed up for and that is their right.

2023: Embrace + Nurture + Rest // Prioritizing God & Me

2022 was a year of prioritizing my relationship with God & with myself. He taught me how to trust Him, rely on Him & be still & let Him work. I revisited old wounds with new eyes. While God revealed Himself to me He also unveiled me to me. I learned the importance of CHOOSING to TRUST & BELIEVE God in the process. A season of incubation, refinement & what felt to be like MANY other things while anchoring myself in Psalms 32:8-9 (TPT) & Isaiah 43:2 (NLT).

I have decided to make my prior videos public again because it’s part of my journey. I will be sharing a little bit of everything & though I will be documenting with the intent of a greater purpose in mind (that I will soon be sharing) there will be other videos I will choose to upload but keep private because it’s my business (in Tabitha’s voice 😋).

I disabled the comments for reasons I will also be sharing soon.

Dependable God! ❤️⚓️🙌🏼

God wants to heal us. God wants us to experience true freedom – in Him. God wants us to live life more abundantly. He truly does! This is what He says in His Word & He’s not a man that he should lie. But we must be willing to turn to Him & allow Him into those fragile parts of us too.

Every so often God will use my relationship with my own children to remind me of my relationship with Him.

When they’re hurting. When they’re mad.

My oldest oftentimes bottles up his emotions no matter how many times I try to let him know that I’m here for him. No matter how much he tries to pretend he’s ok, I know he’s not. As his mom, I know when my son is not ok. Whereas my youngest son, he doesn’t hold back & lets it be known. There’s no need to ask him. He cries it out. He lets me know when he’s sad. When there’s something wrong. When he’s mad. He tells me when he’s upset especially when he’s upset with me.

Redeeming Love (based on the life of Hosea & Gomer)

In 2016, I read the book of Hosea for the first time and I was instantly captivated by the redeeming love of God illustrated in this short book. I have gone back time and time again to study this book in depth and everytime I do, I gain new insight and a fresh revelation each time. I love studying the life of the characters in the Bible. The Old Testament holds a special place in my heart. It’s why I also love and have such an appreciation for the New Testament.

History was my favorite subject in school. The history of someone’s life is fascinating to me because it helps me understand where they come from, what they’ve experienced, and how those experiences have shaped them on their journey of life. I believe we’re all teachers and students of one another. In learning someone’s history, I gain perspective, I’m less critical/judgmental and I am much more compassionate towards others. I have also learned to have compassion even when I don’t know someone’s story because we all have one.
