Dear Daughter, Live abundantly free. —Book Launch Nov 1st 2020

Featured

I couldn’t wait any longer. 

It’s time. 

I did a thing. 

I wrote a book.

A dream of minecoming to fruition—8years thinking about it, planning it out in my head. 

Finally I got the courage to step out, write it and commit to the process. 

Why did it take so long? Fear, doubt, limiting beliefs, not consistent, and no discipline. 

Finally 1 week before covid happened I heard It in my spirit it’s time to write no more playing around reyna. If you want this dream you have to go after it afraid. Then the covid stayhome order happened. So I knew it was really time, no more excuses. 

So I called a few people (an author friend that is experienced in the writing process @matildabelleproductions , another life coach other than myself @sheis_fulfilled , and accountability partners @graham.becca ) to tell them I need accountability in the writing process. 

I wanted to honor myself and commit to my dream. It took work, sacrifice, dedication, and courage!

Every week I talked to them to check in. It kept me faithful to the process. It took 8 months to get to the final steps. Now we are a few weeks from launch date. 

So get ready this book is filled with courage, hope, faith and freedom. It is a devotional, love letters from God that will set you free from your hurts, habits and fears. A book that will be life transforming and lead you to the abundant life God has for you! 

Stay connected for the launch countdown and pre-order your copy.

1 year sobriety!

Today is a big day for me!

1 year sobriety✨

This means a lot to me because 1 yr ago I didn’t know what my future would look like without alcohol.

When I gave it up completely, my mind & body went into panic. How would I survive without wine for the rest of my life?

I learned that I was so dependent on alcohol. I relied on it to cope with stress. I didn’t know how to cope with stress in healthy ways like exercising, prayer, yoga, running, meditating, reading a book, taking baths or talking to someone I could trust about my anxious thoughts, fears or concerns.

I didn’t know how to have fun at social events without a glass of wine in my hand. I thought I was more fun if I drank.

I worried about people not liking me anymore if I didn’t drink. I looked up at billboards & commercials they bombarded me with ads how alcohol was so fun . But they don’t talk about how alcohol ruins families and causes many deaths in the U.S.

People ask me “Reyna, I didn’t know you had a problem with alcohol, why did you stop drinking?” The truth is I stopped drinking bc alcohol ruined my life in so many ways. I was sick & tired of it controlling my life.

People around me drank to much and acted out in ways that were not safe and kind.

I saw loved ones in pain due to their loved ones drinking excessively.

I grew up hurt bc of it & started repeating the behavior & hurt people too bc I too abused alcohol.

I hurt my mind & body for putting alcohol in my system for so many years. Have you ever looked at the brain of someone that doesn’t drink and someone that does? It’s crazy! God has blessed me with this body to fulfill His plan here on Earth. I must treated it right & nourish it well. My body thanks me for letting go of those toxins. It also thanked me for getting my life healthy in so many ways. I now have boundaries for myself, what I will allow and not allow in my life.

Alcohol is no longer allowed to control me. It has no place in my mind, body or soul.

This is 1 of my biggest accomplishments. It’s a one day at a time process.

I celebrate myself today! It was not easy but so worth it!

Own your healing.

Own your healing.

Stop blaming others for why you are the way you are. Yes they may have been the cause of your pain but they are not the cause why your stuck in it , depressed, unfulfilled, angry, bitter, or anxious. You are responsible for your emotions and your reactions.

Stop blaming others for your depression, your anxiety, your anger, or your tension. You have a choice to release the burdens daily. You have a choice to stop letting them treat you like a doormat.

Take responsibility, own your healing.

It’s your life not theirs.

It’s your freedom not theirs.

It’s your healing that births purpose.

Take heart own your story.

Your on your way to freedom. Keep digging out the weeds that no longer serve you.

Your abundant life is sprouting! See God is doing a new thing!!

It’s your healing that will set you free.

It’s your healing that God will use to set others free.

Rise beautiful.

Surrender your pain to the only one that truly heals- Jesus!

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. Psalm 27:14 NIV

Allowing God to remove our character defects takes time.

In the mean time we must be easy on ourselves and others.

If not we can experience burn out, discontentment, and want to give up.

I don’t know about you but I tend to be hard on myself. I expect to much on myself. I also expect to much from others. Especially as a mom I often feel exhausted and I get frustrated that I didn’t accomplish much of my goals. Or that I’m not where I want to be. I wear myself out with the worldly pressures. Worrying about my time.

What I must remember is “Easy does it”

✨An “easy does it” pace will accomplish more than a rushed spirit. @reynamorrisco

When we rush we forget who we are and whose we are!

If we submit to every change God wants to do in our life and humbly ask Him to remove our character defects. God can then begin to work in our life. Recovery is a process.

He is a good God and He will help you recover!

While we wait patiently and gracefully. We can aim to be gentle with ourselves and others.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him. Psalm 37:7

What you think about yourself matters!

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23 NIV

What others think about you doesn’t matter. But what you think about yourself matters most.

Your thoughts become your actions. Your actions become your future.

If your constantly criticizing yourself. Constantly putting yourself down—Telling yourself your not able, or your not good enough, or fat, or your a bad mom, or a bad wife, or a bad friend.

Then your heart will signal to your mind and start to believe it, then your actions will align with the negativity that’s in your heart. Why? Because everything you do flows from it.

So instead fill your heart and mind with God’s truth about who your are in Him. Renew your mind with positive affirmations.

Important rule in life: You must believe in yourself.

Believe:

I am able to do anything with God’s strength.

I am a great mom!

I am an amazing friend!

I am creative!

I am a light in this world.

I am more than enough!

I have everything I need in life!

I am fit.

I am healthy.

I am strong.

I am loved.

I am brave.

I am Daughter of the King!

Am I gracious and compassionate?

The Lord is gracious & compassionate slow to anger and rich in love. Psalm 145:8 NIV

Sometimes people do to us what we do to the Lord. We judge the Lord and call Him things He is not. We believe the lies. Some of us may think God is an angry God. They believe He has punished them. They believe He never blesses them or has anything good for them.

If they had an earthly father that was absent or abusive they believe the same about our Heavenly Father. Our God is loving, He is slow to anger. he is rich in love. He loves you. Adores you. Wants the very best for you.

This is why it’s important to know the truth about our Heavenly Father.

Some people label us and define us by our past and we must know the truth about ourselves and speak against those lies too. For many years I believed I wasn’t worthy of grace and that I wasn’t compassionate because of the mistakes I had made.

But the truth is my past doesn’t define me. It’s my current actions that will define my future. So I must change the narrative and speak truth into my life. If my God say’s He is gracious and compassionate then so am I!

So I will speak with the authority and love that I’ve been given towards myself and others. I want to reflect His character and walk out His promises.

So will you repeat this #affirmations

Repeat it until you believe the truth about yourself and about your Heavenly Father above?!?

Your thoughts become your future.

Your thoughts become your words, you words become your action, your actions become your habits and your habits become your future.

I experienced trauma in my life. I learned a behavior it became a bad habit.

What is that bad habit? Negative self-talk.

It appears as low self esteem.

This is not sexy to admit but it’s important to talk about it because not finding your confidence can hinder you from reaching your destiny.

Negative self talk can sound like:

“I can’t finish what I started.”

“I’m not smart enough.”

“I don’t have what it takes.”

“I’m not equipped.

”I’m not attractive enough.”

“I’m not creative enough.”

“I am not worthy-enough .”

“I am not thin enough.”

“I’ll never be successful.”

“I’m not a good mom.”

“I am a mistake.”

“I’m such a mess.”

“My life sucks.”

“Life will always be this way.”

“There right, I’m a failure.”

Friend, when we speak words like these to ourselves we are criticizing God’s masterpiece -YOU!

You are His masterpiece everything He creates is good!

God wants us to speak out of love. He wants us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. So how can we love others well if we are constantly having negative self-talk?

Like the quote above says,

Your thoughts become your words, you words become your action, your actions become your habits and your habits become your future.

Drewmarkgriffin

What kind of future do you want? If your thought life doesn’t line up w/ the future you envision then it’s time. It’s time to speak God’s truth into your life .

Our words are POWERFUL! You are POWERFUL! You have authority—speak life!

You have authority to change your mindset- No more stinking thinking!

Instead say,

I can finish what I start with God’s strength.

I am smart because God created me.

I am equipped with everything I need to fulfill God’s calling.

I am able because God says I am able.

I am beautiful, everything God creates is good and beautiful.

I am God’s masterpiece.

I am fit and healthy!

I am a great mom, my kids love me. I love being their mom!

My past doesn’t define me. I am forgiven and set free because God says I am!

I have respect for the past.

San Angelo State Park Texas

I have great respect for the past. If you don’t know where you’ve come from, you don’t know where you’re going. I have respect for the past, but I’m a person of the moment. I’m here, and I do my best to be completely centered at the place I’m at, then I go forward to the next place.

Affirm yourself!

Hi my name is Reyna!

Want to introduce myself, my name is Reyna Elizabeth Morris

I am a Latina, Spanish decent

I Love anything to do with self-improvement (books, podcast, resources, recovery groups, women workshops and conferences)

I’ve been in recovery for over 8yrs.

You may be asking for what :

Co-dependency, anger, fear, depression, anxiety, PPD/PPA, addictive tendencies: sugar, love, alcohol abuse, SLAA, attracting toxic people. A few other hurts and trauma that I will share about in future blogs/post.

You never know what anyone is going through. Until they share their story. Your story matters. You matter.

I’ve been a Christian for 8years. Was Catholic before that but didn’t have a relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ.

Why am I sharing all this?!?

Because this year I’m stepping out and pursuing my life’s purpose (I’ve been kinda been circling the same mountain because I keep running from what God has called me too).

Which is helping those that are hurting and lost. Why? Because I was once there!! And I’m still in recovery because Recovery is a process not a destination. It’s a One day at a time.

Recovery requires commitment, dedication, community your willingness to say YES to do the hard work that leads you to Freedim and most importantly We need Jesus- He is our savior!

So I will be sharing my experiences, strength in hopes that it brings you freedom. I will be sharing tools, real life stories, and testimonies in hopes to make your recovery process enjoyable, empowering and liberating.

Remember Life is tough but so are you!

My goal this year is to be certified life coach. 🙏🏽✨
