Mama B’s Values

In the world we live in, important values tend to take a backseat to greed, sin, violence, and many harmful things. So Mama B wants to break the cycle and give you values to keep in mind.

  1. Love Jesus. I am biased but Jesus has never steered me wrong. Jesus has a purpose for you. Jesus loves you so much He went on the Cross and rose. What greater love can you find.
  2. Love yourself. There is one YOU. Value who you are. No person can love you, besides Jesus, that could fill the insecurities you deal with.
  3. Find your purpose. I believe that we are all placed on this Earth for a reason. It may take time but to live in your purpose is a great feeling.
  4. Listen and learn from people. As humans, we are created differently. We may not all agree but you can learn from one another.
  5. Kindness goes a long way.
  6. Have good character. You can make or break your reputation based on your character.

A few of many values I have but this is a start. Love you all.

A Word from Mama B!

Can Mama B be real with you!?! Shopping is a lot like dating and relationships. You think I am crazy? Keep reading and you will get my point.

  • It looks good on the rack but not good when you try it on (The Deceiver Person)
  • It just looks bad when you see it. Like…you can’t deal with it. You just look away and keep moving (The Bad News Bears Person)
  • It may different from the rest and not what you expect but you give it a try (The Wild Card Person)
  • Many rackets of clothes you see but you have to discern what works for you based on what you are looking for.
  • Everyone has different styles but you do should not be forced into someone else’s style.
  • Society likes to pressure you with ads on what you think you need. Be true to yourself.
  • You don’t need to rush the dating process like it’s Black Friday.

All in all, you deserve someone who loves you and respects you. These things come out of my head. Find the humor in my analogies..but there is a sliver lining to what I said.

Blissfully,

Real Talk to Give You Life

I remember for the longest time being the friend who meddled and invested my time, energy, and resources to the people around me. I felt like it was my job to save everyone even at the expense of my own happiness. I tell you it is draining.

There is nothing wrong with caring about people, BUT it is important to take care of your needs too. Some people you invest in may only bring you further down. Your constant, toxic investment in someone will divest your life and well-being. I have had to separate myself from toxic people. Their drama and issues made me feel worse. There was no give and take; it was me giving while they took. I would be drained and unhappy.

Moral of the Story: Care about yourself. Know that your mind, heart, and being matters too. Let no person still your joy. Eliminate the people who steal your joy and do not support you in your time of need. Do not be afraid to make yourself a priority.

Your attitude reflects how your day, week, month, and year. Have an attitude of gratitude. Take life with a grain of sand. Take life one step at a time. Things will get better. You are more relieved with an attitude of gratitude. Day by day, minute by minute, a grateful attitude will take you farther than you can imagine.

Relieved

A Breath of the Father’s Air

It is Father’s Day. For some, it is a great time to celebrate dads. For others, it’s a difficult day whether a father is in Heaven, non-existence, or just no where to be found. My father’s father and my mother’s father was absent and distant. And yet, the Heavenly Father loved them so much and carried them through life.

My Heavenly Father sent His only Son to die for you and me. No matter where you are, He loves you unconditionally. He will always be in your corner. He provides and sustains. He is everything and more. Even if you don’t have an earthly father, you do have a Heavenly Father who sits high and loves deeply.

One of my favorite hymns is “How Deep the Father’s Love For Us.”

How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

Blissful Legends

I am a lover of music. I was inspired by a friend who posted classic icon songs from amazing artists of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s. Music today is not the same as the legends who came before us. I am old soul and I love these artists. Whether on a good day or bad day, these artists can do no wrong with their songs. I highly suggest these artists’ music.

  1. Michael Jackson
  2. Sade
  3. Stevie Wonder
  4. Whitney Houston
  5. Earth, Wind, & Fire
  6. Billy Joel
  7. Frank Sinatra
  8. Nat King Cole
  9. Nina Simone
  10. Adele

The Perfect Paragon

Jesus is the paragon of excellence.

I wish could I tell you of an earthly example of excellence, but we would all disagree

Jesus lived a perfect life, yet He died for you and me.

He suffered betrayal, denial, and skepticism from the world

Yet He carried on with His Father’s business to completion.

I am free as a result.

I am free indeed.

His excellence saved me.

Life Before Future Lawyer Bianca

ПечатьFun Fact about me: I wanted to be a pharmacist but after Organic Chemistry, I realized that dream died. But prior to that realization, I had wanted to be lawyer since high school. My dad was against me being a lawyer because his perception of lawyers was “Lawyers lie and can’t be Christian” (weird but true).

My lawyer moment: I went to Haiti on a mission trip after the earthquake. A defining moment of the trip was when I encountered a young boy, about the age of twelve, who did not know how to write his own name. I do not think twice about writing my name because that is one of the first skills I learned in school. At that moment, I thought “How many more people in this world do not know how to write their own name?” I also wondered how many times illiterate people have been taken advantage of, due to a lack of knowledge of what has been written. When I wrote that twelve year old boy’s name on his nametag, he was elated to see his name in ink for the first time. This moment punctured my heart. It changed my outlook. I finally understood why my parents enforced education because there are people (like them) who did not have the same opportunities as me. I had a different worldview that day. From that moment forward, I realized that even the smallest thing, like one’s name, can make a difference and give a person more of an identity.

Since my biology degree was not going to happen, I knew wanted to make a difference, to reach people delegitimized by society. I took a career aptitude test and I lined up with “law-related fields” which brought me back to my original career choice: the law.

Then what happened next was a burning bush moment. After I had a meeting with a Career Services counselor, her secretary said, “A professor left some LSAT study materials and a book of law schools in the U.S.. Do you know anyone that would want them?” Yup…that was my sign. So that was the route I took.

My dad eventually had a change of heart. I changed my major to Political Science and started on the track to where I am now. I am in my last year of law school looking towards the future. I desire to be an immigration attorney, fighting for the people and kids like that young Haitian boy I encountered. I want to use my knowledge for good and for others.

So the moral of the story is: Defining moments can come from anywhere, including your past. Never give up. Keep growing.
