A Poem Dedicated To Abused Women

Hello Divine Diva's

This a poem I wrote a few years ago when I was mentoring some women and girls who were abused.

When I thought I was alone, you were there to hold my hand. When my world was broken and fell apart, you were there to help me stand.

When there was no one to tell my secrets to, you were there to lend your ear. When I thought I wasn't strong enough, you were there to ease my fear.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson

When there was nowhere left for me to run, your arms were open wide. You gave me a place to call home, when all I wanted to do was hide.

So many times you held my life, in your heart so tenderly. You taught me to spread my wings, so I could finally learn to be free.

What words could I say to thank you, for giving me the strength and courage to be me. I’m a survivor and I’ll show others, I found the key that was always inside of me.

Anything Is Possible If You Believe

Hello Divine Diva's

I've been working hard on my Divine Diva clothing and going to open up an online shop soon, sorry for not posting as much lately here. But here's a great post for the day. Hope you enjoy it.

Are you living the life of your dreams? Or do you have unfulfilled dreams that you pushed away for whatever reason, and now feel it's to late to pursue them? Well I'm here to tell you that it's never to late to make all your dreams come true . First of all, God put that dream in your heart for a reason. I know it's easy to get bogged down with excuses such as I'm not smart enough, pretty enough, rich enough, or talented enough. You know what I'm talking about, and sadly some of us build up such a big wall of excuses that we feel we can never tear down that wall, so we just give up.

But what if those excuses didn't have to stand in your way? What if you could decide right now to pursue each and every dream you have in you heart, and live the live of your dreams? Would you take a chance and go for it? Let's just wipe that slate clean of excuses and get you on the yellow brick road. That road is going to take you to places you never thought you would ever see. All you need to do is make a decision to not let excuses or fears stand in your way for one more second. Click your heels 3 times and say goodbye to excuses.

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. Walt Disney

It's time for you to achieve every dream your heart desires. You have the power within you to reach for your dreams and the world is waiting for you to give life to the dreams in your heart. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible. So what are you waiting for, start today. Follow that yellow brick road; it will lead to your everything.

Always Remember that you are Beautiful, Strong, Powerful, Fearless, Amazing, Divine, and most important of all YOU ARE ENOUGH! Divine Diva Donna

Freddie Combs The Voice Of An Angel

Hello Divine Diva’s

I was so inspired by a contestant on the X Factor last week and just had to write about it. If you didn’t catch the last episode, boy did you miss out on the most inspiring audition I have ever seen.

Freddie Combs is a 540–pound, wheelchair - bound minister who received a standing ovation and brought tears to the eyes of America as they watched his audition. He was wheeled onstage by his wife and best friend of 16 years and dedicated his performance of “Wind Beneath My Wings” to her. The judges and audience seemed to be shocked by his appearance, but everything changed when he shared his inspiring story.

In 2009 after spending seven months in his room, He developed a very severe case of carbon dioxide poisoning and it was slowly killing him. The doctors did not expect him to live, but not only did he live, but he went on to lose almost four hundred pounds from his original weight of 920 pounds.

Despite his outward appearance Freddie is an amazing example of someone who shows such courage and doesn’t let the fact that he is a 540-pound man stand in the way of his God given gift that is meant to be shared with the world.

"X Factor" judge L.A. Reid started the commentary stating, "My comments for you will not be out of sympathy because of anything that you have dealt with. It's going to be purely based on your voice which I think is heavenly."

Simon said "Ah, Freddie you know what? When I heard you sing I had a vision in my mind of you standing singing that song, healthy, happy and maybe you need some inspiration to help you to that next stage because it's within you to sort this out. Do you understand that? I don't think that you deserve to be stuck in that chair, I really don't. But it has to come from you. I kind of feel if we're gonna go forward that we have to make a sort of a deal with each other, that we're gonna both work hard to sort this out, yeah? Because I'll back you if you back yourself. In which case Freddie I wanna kick this off and I want to give you a yes."

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller

L.A. Reid added to that by saying "I liked the deal that Simon made with you when he challenged you to stand...and if you stand I'm gonna stand right by you. It's four yeses."

Freddie’s story is such an inspiring story and I love the fact that he did not let his condition stand in the way of sharing his gift with the world. He did not let fear stand in the way and stop him from showing himself to the world even though he weighs 540 pounds and is wheelchair-bound. I’ve seen stories over the years of several obese people who locked themselves inside their houses for years at a time because it was to difficult to not only leave the house, but also because of the shame they felt about the way they looked.

Fear stops some of us from so many things in our lives and I think the feeling of being fearful is almost worse then if you just faced the fear and did it anyway. We can choose to let fear stop us from living the life we are meant to live and never face it, or if we choose to be brave and courageous and take that step forward, we might discover something amazing.

I believe we all have gifts and talents and it’s our job to discover them and share them with the world. God gives these to each of us and I think that if we hide away from the world and never use the gifts he gave us, we will never live the amazing life that he wants us to live.

What fears do you have that are holding you back from living the life you are meant to live? Have you discovered the gifts and talents that God has given you? What would your life be like if you faced your fears? What would you life look like today if you took a chance and faced any fears that are stopping from living the life you are meant to live? Maybe you can take a little baby step today and start the journey.

Let Freddie be an example that anything is possible if you believe. I believe that Freddie will stand from his wheelchair and sing for the world to see and I cannot wait to see it happen!
