#Valueurself #speakoutloud #youhaveavoice #lovewhoyouare

Today I would like to talk about speaking up.

Avoiding direct confrontation takes up a lot of energy. Especially when you are dealing with someone who is difficult to talk to. You find yourself always trying to steer away from an important conversation. It becomes even worse when you turn to texts and emails. They are found to be more misunderstood, then speaking face to face, and causes more of a problem.

The question is what do you do??

First you have to understand the type of person you have in your life. Second, ask yourself if this is the kind of love you really want to have?

Losing your voice, is not something you should live without. This is who you are, your loves, and needs, wants, your dislikes and feelings should be heard.

You are an amazing person, with much to share with love ones, friends, and your everyday life. Having this type of relationship will close your heart from the outside world.
If this is you. Take control of this and reach out for support.

I don't want you to lose your voice. Your thoughts and feelings are important.
You can always reach out to me. Remember I was this person.

Leave me a message, at, you can also share your story, at the bottom of the page. We are all hear together, to help one another.

Breaking Your Silence!

If you are concerned about a need today, say out loud, Let someone know that is close to you, a person you believe in. Let them guide you towards the help you need. You have to ask. I know this is the biggest problem we all have. It holds us back. If you have fear about something, say out loud. Don't be silent, and have your hurt and pain become a uniform you put on everyday.
This happened to me. My silence unfortunately worked against me. I held on to my pain as tight as I could. It depleted my thoughts and energy.. All I wanted was to smile again and know how it felt to laugh one more time. I was ashamed to let anyone know what was going on in my personal life.
Please Break Your Silence. Reach out to me. Share your story on the bottom of Contact me privately, and let me know How I can help.

I hope to hear from you soon.

The world is full of wounded, heartbroken people, who have been mistreated or abused in some way. They walk around pretending to be okay, desperately hoping other people will think they’ve got it all together.
The truth is, none of us are perfect, and we all go through hard times and get hurt by someone or something. It’s amazing the things people can do to others, but it has helped me to understand more about me. many times when people abuse others, they are acting out of their own pain, so it goes on from generation to generation.
If you’ve been hurt in the past, you don’t have to spend your life being alone, sad, wondering what your next steps are. 
I realized the hardest thing for me was to ask for help. It was the best thing I have ever done. 
I'am here for you any time you would like to talk. You can get a hold of me on this site, or my blog on on the bottom of the page, also share your story with us if you like. 
We are all in this together, we can learn from one another. 
Have a blessed day.

Anchored to hope doesn’t mean you won’t have difficulties. It means when difficulties come, nothing will move you.

#valueurself #breakingyoursilence

When we think of tenacity we often think about aggression, in athletics or even the boardroom. 
Tenacity is what gives strength it's purpose,
and hope it's course.
It is the answer for those with less skill, but immeasurable heart, it is courage beyond bravery, it is a state of mind.
Everything in life that brings value to us, let us share it with the world through tenacity of spirit.

Tuesday, August 22, 2017


Are you facing a difficult situation? Don't Give all your attention to it. Do you need peace and protection? 

Focus your heart and mind on faith. You have the courage necessary to get through this. You must believe in yourself. 

You will see the goodness, and you’ll live in peace and victory all the days of your life!

Speak Up

Not only is Freedom of Speech our first amendment, but freedom to speak is something that we all have. Exercise this freedom with love and compassion, or with a firm hand when you need to! And do not be afraid.

The opposite of fear is bravery. Choose to be brave. We need to be willing to say what is on our minds and open ourselves up to meaningful discussions that don’t compromise our boundaries. No one knows your message or thoughts better than you. If this is tough for you right now, try this:

 Think out your message
 Choose good timing—calling someone on the phone in the middle of rush hour might not be it (just like it would likely throw you off)
 Stick to one topic and don’t make it a free-for-all
 Remember that your relationship is two people, not one
 Open discussions bring solutions
 Don’t think of your answer without really listening—set a good example for how to have an open discussion

The number one relationship killer is silence.

Have you heard of this: the cat got your tongue? Don’t let that happen, it’s unacceptable and a sure way to put your relationship into decline. There are going to always be rocky times, but your strength and voice are what can help you get through those, whether the conclusion is that you’ve had enough, or your back on track.

Introducing: Breaking Your Silence

Amilia Powers is an inspirational author and personal coach at Value UR Self. Being in an unhealthy relationship herself, she found away to disconnect from her familiar life and make the necessary changes needed to regain the happiness and joy she once lost.

Amilia went through a terrible experience with an abusive man. “I don’t want you to think for a moment that this was at all an easy task.” Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed, it means the damage will no longer control your life.

Amilia received the support, and guidance to dig deep into her inner self to find strength to disconnect from his torment, and abuse.

Amilia was able to overcome the violence through faith, strength, and focus. She changed her circumstances and never allowed this kind of disrespect to enter into her life again.

Amilia is now helping women learn how to find the courage to make all the necessary changes in their lives for more loving and happier experiences.

Amilia can help you heed the warning signs. “We have choices. Our voice needs to be heard. Expecting unkindness because of the fear of loss is not an option. We will not tolerate any acts of violence; physical, or emotional abuse.”

“What we allow in our lives reflects on our children and we wouldn’t want this life for them.”
 Amilia Powers.

Amilia is quite active in Toastmasters International. She is her Club President, and was appointed Area Director recently by her peers. Toastmasters is a wonderful nonprofit platform that has given her the skills necessary to effectively speak in public and develop the confidence in sharing her mission with others. Now she is also excited to add Best Selling Author to this list, having created a chapter in Success Manifesto, which is co-authored with her mentor, Brian Tracy.

Amilia received the “Quilly Award” from The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors in 2016 for Success Manifesto.

Amilia is creating a series of three books entitled; Breaking Your Silence. Her first inspirational book, Pain Behind Broken Vases, has a release date of October 2017 and will be followed up with, Picking Up the Pieces, in December. Amilia will be adding a workbook, From Shattered to What Matters, in March of 2018 to complete her series of three books.

#valueurself #believeinyourself #loveyourself #bodybydesignnotdefault #goodatttitude #keepgoing TODAY! Are you waiting for something in your life? One thing I’ve learned is that waiting should not be a passive thing. When we’re waiting the correct way, we’re on the lookout. We talk like what we are believing for is going to happen. We act like it’s going to happen. We’re making preparations. It’s just like when you’re expecting someone for dinner; you don’t wait till they show up before you decide to start cooking. Most likely you start early in the day. You make sure the house is clean, you go to the grocery store, and maybe you buy some flowers for the table. You make preparations because you’re expecting someone. Well, that’s the attitude we need to have while we’re waiting for promises to come to pass. Put your faith to work. Prepare for the answer to come. Keep standing, keep believing, and keep hoping because your answer is on the way!

#valueurself #makeadecision #embraceyourblessing #godiswithyou #bodybydesignnotdefault Have you made the decision to forget the past? Many people don’t fully understand what that means. They wonder, “How can I forget something that’s happened to me?” But one definition of the word forget is to disregard intentionally or to overlook. In other words, you have to choose to disregard your past so that it doesn’t keep you from moving forward. That means the good and the bad. Sometimes our past victories keep us from rising higher as much as past failures. If we don’t let go of the old, we’ll never be able to embrace the new. It doesn’t matter what’s happened in your history, it’s time to forget what lies behind. Today, make the choice live. Trust that a better future in store for you. As you forget what lies behind and press forward, you’ll move forward. You’ll see increase and blessing and live

#valueurself #powerofprayer #youarenotalone #simpleprayer #heislistening #bodybydesignnotdefault In the hustle and bustle of today's busy world, sometimes it's hard enough to hear yourself think, much less take a minute to stop and pray. We forget the importance of connection and understanding. We need this time to listen, to ask questions, to receive hope from the misunderstood. Allowing ourselves to gain the strength and encouragement through prayer, and What The Power Of Simple Prayer can show us. The benefits of prayer is someone is always listening, and you are never alone. Share your feelings with him, ask him for help. He will see you through it. "Are you listening?" This is personal to me. I'am sharing this with you, as living proof that he is listening.

#ValueUrSelf #bodybydesignnotdefault #wakeup #stopcomplaining #beencouraged #favorandblessing #morninggoodness #powerofyourtongue Today! When you wake up in the morning, do you expect the goodness in your life? Do you set the tone of the day for success, favor and blessing with your words? life and death are in the power of the tongue. That's why it's so important to declare praises throughout the day. Things may be bad all around you, people may be negative, complaining and discouraged, but don't let that spirit rub off on you. The worse it gets, the brighter you're going to shine. The good news is that no matter how you feel, no matter what's going on around you, you can choose your words. There's nothing that can stop you from constantly speaking a pleasant Word!
