She learned the spiritual journey had nothing to do with being beautiful.It is all about being genuine , authentic , real like self love. Believe in yourself first others second.Everything naturally flows not motivated by fear but by love.

What a difference two years makes. Around this time back in 2015, I was in a crippled state of mind. I reconnected with Hassan (not his real name), a guy I was emotionally involved with 12 years ago, and this proved to be a mistake that cost me my dignity.
Long story (sort of) short, Hassan found me via Facebook’s “People You May Know” pop-up, and messaged me regarding my whereabouts. We immediately engaged in a tête-à-tête via instant message, and at one point during our digital convo, he asked if we could meet, because apparently, he had something he’d wanted to tell me for years. Being the curious cat that I am, we setup a rendezvous within 48 hours, and it was clear by our messaging that we were extremely excited to see one another since we hadn’t hung out or spoken in more than five years.
Fast forward to the day we met. The “thing” that Hassan wanted to share with me turned out to be this: he confessed that he loved me and he’s loved me since the first day we met in 2005. (Not gonna lie, I had dreamed about this moment for 10 years). I was in my mid-thirties and had never had a man tell me he loved me, so it took a few minutes to let his sincere and shocking words settle in. We soon kissed and talked for hours. I was on cloud nine. And then, the strangest thing happened. (Continued in next post.)
