I welcome you…

I welcome you ;
the good , the bad,
the nasty , the sad,
the disappointing, the revealing,
the expected, the unknown,
the peaceful, the envious,
the misfortunes, the glorious,
the lessons, the blessings,
the falls, the climbs,
the moments, the memories,
the gut wrenching pain, the freedom from letting go,
the venom hissed, the healing words,
the spite, the hugs,
the hurt, the love,
the cold, the warmth,
the luxury, the necessities,
the old me, the new me,
the family, the friends,
the betrayals, the loyalty,
the kindness, the arrogance,
the small things, the finer details,
the vivid colours, the rough edges,
the death in life and the life in death.
I welcome you all.
Thank you for making my life dazzle me on.
Grateful. Extremely truly grateful..

-Leandra Rodrigues.

Self love isn’t selfish.

Hi there sweet sunshine,
If you find yourself feeling guilty for indulging in self love and self time, please don’t. It’s not selfish.

Also note self love isn’t self obsession.

It isn’t selfish to love the self you are, cherish what you are, feel at home with who you are.

It isn’t selfish to respect your essence even if others fail to do so.

If you have love within you will have love to give around. The world needs compassion and kindness.
Almost everyone is fighting a mental battle, some wont even be aware.

The times now have exceeded the levels of pressures of expectations and horizons of dreams and wants and goals.

Sometimes you need to simply pause and refuel yourself, be kind to yourself.

Life is such a waste if you hate yourself until your last.
Why don’t you begin with loving the smaller bits you appreciate about yourself and slowly learn to love yourself in totality?

Selfish is not s/he who loves and loves evermore, thy-self , thy-life and thy world.

Stay calm. Stay blest.
Gudnight folks .

You are beautiful.

Listen you who are misguided too,
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.

Regardless of your face or body.

Your personality,
your character,
your heart, your emotions,
your sensitivity to others,
your values & principles,
your goals , your dreams,
your charisma, your nature,
your outlook , your optimism,
your inner being, your gratitude,
your smile, kindness, courage …….
And all of you is what makes you beautiful.

Please don’t let people tell you otherwise.
And please please stay away from people who make you believe that you are not.

I was friends with a person who made it so clear to me that I kinda admitted that beautiful was never going to be my cup of tea. I was a kid who hoped that someone would someday genuinely say it to me. It’s something what people long for. To be told that they are part of the beautiful world.

That’s a thing of the past now. And I really don’t blame anyone. It’s how I was and how I had to grow up to learn to look at beautiful in a different light, different perspectives.
And that’s when I realized the world had different varied visions and perspectives to look at the same things.

It is so difficult for some people to just say something good to someone, to appreciate them, to compliment them, and I mean all this for it’s genuiness, not fake flattery.

We live such shallow lives that are banked on ” I will compliment if she/he compliments. I will talk if she/he approaches.” Everyone is so shelled up and closed and unappreciative towards each other.
Why I wonder?

Go ahead and tell atleast one person how beautiful they are. Observe their reaction. They will have a smile radiating happiness and disbelief. Disbelief because no one says such good things to one another anymore.
Why look for people. Tell your parents and siblings what beautiful people they are.
When you become the reason to make someone happy, you will always be much more happier with yourself.
Beautiful is not the exterior that will go back to dust, beautiful will be that quotient of you that will leave behind a fragrance of fond remembrance even after your last.

Stay beautiful and blest, you brave soul.

Spread on some positivity around.

Keep smiling.

Alil about Love.

Love does not happen only once, that’s just a notion , inscribed forcefully on our brain, by believers around the world.

Love happens and that is beautiful, it is not controlled or forced, and it even makes you blind to the flaws of people you fall for, you tend to overlook their scars and vices, because you plainly simply love loving them.

And when sometimes things don’t get far as forever and ever or really end in happily ever afyers, you need to get out of the shell of remorse and grief and feeling hopeless and downcast. You need to stop blaming yourself for being blind and purposely ignorant of all the vices that now are screaming at you and making you regret your choices.

You are at this phase called, a chapter has ended, and like all, I am in pain and I should wallow there and rethink all my decisions and actions and blah. Stop reassessing the past. That’s gonna make you gloomy. You will fail to see the right reasons it was right at the time you stood in compared to all the wrong reasons you are so deliriously aware in the now . The times are different, the chapters you are living are different, and the you – you were and are , are having a huge gap of process learning change.

Because quite honestly, only after the move on thing, you’ll know that love is not forced, love does not envy and love is boundless. And sometimes you live this boundless abundance of love in fractional inches in a few chapters of learning and living , until you find a foundation of becoming a homemaker and investing you into building just that. Reaching this point is sometimes chance, sometimes a choice and mostly fate. Some want it , while some don’t and still there are other’s who are confused with the pictures weaved on what to expect and what would rather become of them.

Bible scriptures : 1 Corinthians 13:

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

See, we can love once or twice and fall apart. But it does not actually break our heart or us completely , only to the extent we allow. But once we realize this, we are at a better place of understanding, you can love again, feel attracted again and you’ll definitely perhaps find violins n flutes playing in your head as your emotions dance jazz and again feel your soul crushing. If you are compassionate and as open to receiving love as you are to giving love away, this will happen tons of times, until you know the value of what love is when you have it and when you lose and believe that love is what you will receive when love is what you give and so God will bless you with THE love that will make you stop hoping and waiting and pinning and wailing, because then that love will be the faith alive in you, a breathtakingly beautiful one, perhaps.

I do believe in happily ever afters and I know I will find mine, I am a firm believer in love eternity and I am also aware of the stakes and hiccups that life’s tantrums will throw , that some of which I won’t know how to deal with but time will be my teacher, and so all I’ll need is love in me, like a burning fuel to keep me going, always. It is like an anecdote to calmness and peace and belonging.

Do you remember the vows of marriage:

“In sickness n health, in good times and bad”

If we can vow our fidelity to one person for the remainder of our existence, and learn and grow through the journey,

Then don’t you think God has vowed to be with us always, to love and cherish us and be with us, mould us, give us what we need, bless us, lead us on paths he chose, make way for us where there are no ways, let us walk on raging waters, protect us from burning fires ? He married us even before we asked Him to be with us, and he has vowed to be the Lover of our soul and the Keeper of our hearts, the Source of our lives and to Love abundantly.

I dont want a story, that I plan anymore.

I want a story He plans.

Because in the end , He is the best story writer.

Also read : Sirach 42:18-25.

Sirach 42:24 All things are in pairs, each the opposite of the other, but nothing the Lord made is incomplete .

Self love.

Love heals. Love for self is the key to a healthy life, in today’s world.
The need of the hour is to teach children the art of self love.
To weigh their opinions, views , dreams before the critical reviews of people and society.
Everyone now a days wants to dictate your life to you and yet they can’t stand no one dictating them about how they should live their life.
It’s quite a hypocritical world.
Preaching is easier than practicing.
I can’t teach you or advice you how to live, what to say, what to dress like, and so on.
I can appreciate you, motivate you, shower you with blessings and prayers, and good vibes, and not hiss venom like a snake.
I can give you alil push to indulge in self love and invest in alil Me-time every now and then.

Self-introspection is another key to be self aware.
We are so immersed in our lives with keeping up with the world, that we have no time for ourselves, to love ourselves so what’s alil broken here and there can be healed, we have no time to redeem and refresh ourselves.
Don’t be so focused to fit it that you lose your very essence in the long run.

Sometimes you have to stop being too hard on yourself and count your blessings and measure your achievements.
All of this is earned by you, no one can take it away.
Hustle my love, keep that crown polished, for it means you are still reigning and darling you have to still build what you envision, and grow through it. You can, because you are worthy and capable. And no one can tell you otherwise.

Let nothing stop you from discovering your greatness.
Kindness pays, working on yourself everyday sharpens your might.

Sometimes just feel it all, in a moment.
Love yourself so truly that no one stands a chance to abuse your self esteem.

-Leandra.

Girl you got the fire.


Oh! I DEFINITELY DO.

😊😊

No I’m not gonna say “keep your head high girl and blah !” Let’s get this straight. 

“GIRL IF YOU REALLY WANT SOMETHING, work your ass off , work so hard, that ‘luck’ is not a word in your diction, your lifestyle is not about fate and good fortune. Earn your life and live it. Slay your way every day, even in baggy clothes and no mascara, because you are YOUR OWN QUEEN . BELIEVE IN YOUR WORTH, that no one can define you , only you can be your own definition. Love yourself so much, that no one can let the fire within die. Make mistakes. Make tons of them. Because that’s how you will learn your way out. Let people talk, jeez just let them, they need the gossip to thrive. Don’t let that bother you. Stress is caused by giving a damn. No one changes you without your consent. Get this right in your blood. NO ONE CHANGES THE ESSENCE OF YOU. NO ONE. You can keep your head all around the world, wrap it in your arms, but so long you are breathing, make sure you nurture kindness to yourself as well as around. Be brave, and determined. It’s okay to feel lost, and not know the tomorrow. Uncertainty is the key cause of anxiety. Everything will be fine. Even if not. No queen backs down. Fight my warrior. Fight and stand tall. Fight and work hard. Fight and make it happen. Chase your dreams, breathe in happiness, create your peace, and learn the art to not give a damn about tons of things that are is unwanted noise in your vibration. VIBRATE HIGH. SPREAD GOOD VIBES. And at the end of the day if you can sleep with a conscious that screams “Girl you did right. And tomorrow will be even more fantastic. Now let’s go relive those crazy dreams.” You are doing it right. 

Hustle love! Hustle. -Leandra

Parents

​YES I know how blest I am.

YES I know what wonderful parents I have,

Two people who make me feel like I have my God on earth with me through them,

Two people who make me believe

That TRUE LOVE EXISTS,

that compassion and love 

Are the most ultimate treasures one can ever receive.

That a house can be built on rocks,

But a home is made with a bonding of hearts,

That not having the same understandings and different thoughts, may result in fights of deep meaning, and may hurt either one, but at the end of it , nothing matters more than being with each other through times of variant phases.
That losing oneself to push the other to discover their  boundaries, is the biggest gain. 

That the rewards of sacrifices will not succumb to pain. 

That having each other, even if miles apart, is knowing that there are these arms that will always always open wide , to hold me close to their heart. 

Oh what joy it is to be blest with the utmost best ?

Ask me, for I know that my home is where my heart will always reside. . .with them.
