A message just for you

Good Morning and Good Evening friends,

Its been a rough 2020, but especially harder for the ones dealing with emotional, mentally, and physical abuse. I talk with lots of women via helpline calls and emails.

No one has the right to tell you what to do or when to leave. Only you can make that choice for you.

When you decide:

  1. Get a safety plan and practice it.
  2. Create a safe word to use when you are in danger.
  3. Plan it out. Collect important documents, money and put in a safe place.
  4. Notify school and work.

Uniquely YOU

I love this quote by Mandy Hale.

This quote represents my books to be published 2021.

I have grown so much. Learning and definitely doing new things like being transparent.

I’m free to be ME. I see my beauty through my flawed imperfections. I Love ME!

My adult book Love Doesn’t Have To Hurt a survivor of mental and physical abuse to healing. Sharing her story to help others. Not afraid to be what God wanted me to be.

My Unique Self.

Post what is unique about you that you can use to help empower others?

Thanks for visiting and share.

Blessings,

Denise

“I Love ME”

Good day family and friends, Everything begins with love!

I am so over the top pleased to tell you about my soon to be published Children’s book I Love ME for ages 3 to 8 years old.

Grace is telling her story of abuse and healing teaching young children who have experienced trauma and abuse learn hope, coping skills, and empowerment to help break the silence.

I Love ME brings awareness about their own bodies, understanding their feeling of loneliness, self worth, learning that they are not alone and that they are enough.

Stay tuned for a chance for ten blessed person to receive a grace bracelet and sugar scrub set.

What do think of the book cover? Do you think this kind of book is needed? I love and look forward to your thoughts. Thanks!

Grace girl…Rebuilding after

Domestic Violence and Emotional Abuse is one of the hardest things to survive. Just know you can do it! You are free from your abusive, please continue to safety plan. 

Tips:

  • Change your phone number and get caller ID.
  • Change your locks and check windows.
  • Change your work hours and your routes to and from work.
  • Tell family and friends to be alert.
  • Get a restraining order.

It’s time to think about you. When was the last time you did something just for you?  Think about what could  make you happy?  What brings you joy?  

Read a good book?  Get a facial? When was the last time? If you can’t answer, then it’s time you start PAMPERING  YOU!

Keys…You are so beautiful, loving and kind.  You spend so much of your time focusing on others.  Yes, they appreciate it.  And you feel good also. I know it’s hard rebuilding yourself after an abusive relationship. The journey is long but we are worth it.

Everyday we should thank God, eat a balanced meal, exercise, drink plenty of water and pray.

It’s also nice to have some me time.  If you love and appreciate yourself.  spend time with yourself, then you can carry so much more love over to others.  Joy and happiness comes from you and no one else.  Your family, friends and others may positively affect your mood sometimes.

Others love to be around people that are likable.

1.  Think about what you love about yourself?

2.  What makes you happy?

3.  What brings you joy?

4.  Instead of focusing on celebrating once you get that new job, or make your next million, have fun now!  Celebrate each day that God gives you breath.

Be blessed,

Denise Hardnett

Sweet Orange Zest Scrub

Bestcurlfriend

This homemade body and face scrub smells sooooooooo amazing! I literally used a few simple ingredients I already had around the house including sweet orange essential oil and zest from my kid’s oranges. This scrub leave my body feeling refreshed and well moisturized so it’s perfect for moms on-the-go. Grape seed oil has tons of benefits for the skin so it’s a win, it’s one of the best (if not best) oils for the skin. You can swap for Coconut, Or Avocado oil. Go with how you feel!

These make perfect gifts for friends. It saves you money, and it’s natural! Use body scrubs once a week or whenever you need a refresher!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 Pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 grape seed oil
  • 20 drops sweet orange essential oil
  • 1 tsp Orange Zest (add more for smell)

Mix well.
