Overcoming The Loser Spirit: Allowing Love To Flow Into Your Life...(Lesson #14)

Lack of  authentic love in our lives can make us feel as though we are staggering along a dried up riverbed. We seek this authentic love in our daily interactions and yet we still come up short. We  kill time in relationships and marriages because we don't know what else to do with ourselves.Far off in the distance, we can hear the rumbling of authentic love roaring down the riverbed. We long for the healing properties of authentic love and wonder if the correct dosage will be enough to fill the eternal vacant sections of our soul.
And, yet as it flows closer to us we become worried that we are not worthy of such a gift. Immediately, we look for ways to block its arrival. Most of the time, we are able to successfully block it from our lives. We tell ourselves that authentic love will always come back for us. But, as the years flow on and we notice that authentic love comes around us less and less.

Exercise #1
  •  Are you ready for authentic love to move into your life?
  • What are some ways in which you are currently blocking authentic love from your life?
  • What does authentic love look like to you?
Song of the Day: Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90 by Johannes Brahms

I will allow authentic love to flow into my life. I realize that excessive social media use, friends with benefits deals, dead-end mind games with exes,  and other toxic situations are blocking me from authentic love.
From this day forward, I actively choose to become a source and supporter of authentic love.

Bougie Girl Univeristy:Building A Room On A Budget-Paint Is My New BFF

Over the years, I have had a love-hate relationship with paint. In my prior experiences, painting projects never quite turned out right. Either I slathered too much paint on an object or not enough. As my income increased, so did my tendency to avoid DIY painting projects of any kind.

My living room decor is comprised of red, black, and white. However, my TV stand/entertainment center did not coordinate with my living at all. I contemplated replacing it with a black one. But, the comparable ones were a couple hundred dollars. I ruled out searching Craigslist and other secondhand resources due to lack of time. 
As time wore on, it became clearer to me that my best option in this scenario was to paint this piece of furniture black. Luckily, I have a fenced in backyard and a seemingly never-ending roll of plastic sheeting which has acted as a barrier between my project and the patio.

Here is my list of  suggestions for spray painting furniture:
