Habari Gani! Day 2 of Kwanzaa- Kujichagulia or Self-determination. What is that you would like to do during this next year? Your success ultimately depends on how driven you are to connect with the resources needed to accomplish said goals. You are the biggest factor on your success. I'm excited about your future. 
Until tomorrow

Tomorrow is Christmas what a privilege to be able to acknowledge the birth of the King of Kings. Truly Jesus is the reason for the season. Don't let the gifts get you sidetracked.

Good morning,

This morning I feel a great press to encourage and lift up those that have or are experiencing loss during this holiday season. Yes, you will have to create a new normal. It is even hard to say. A few years ago our mom went to be with the Lord on December 18th and 2 years later on Christmas night our dad joined her.

I distinctly remember asking my sister, so what will holidays look like without mom and then without them both? Yes, you will get a new normal. No, you won't forget and you might still she'd dome tears but it is ok. Just don't get stuck in a funk.

Celebrate the family that remains, while yet holding on to the precious memories. It is a delicate balance of old and new. Of what is versus what was. Though it is hard, love others and allow others to love you through the hurt. Time does necessarily heal or make it go away but it does you a chance to do it better each year.

Do not hesitate to reach out if you need help to process or a huge hug. We are all just helpers one of another.

Until Monday

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

As we come very close to the end of the year I ask you to consider thinking about your current state. Are you satisfied with your present/current way of life? Many of us have settled for what we have been given and have not pushed ourselves to achieve more than just enough. It is time for you and I to look to our future. In an ideal situation, what would your life look like? If you don't ever look past today and see yourself doing something better than what you see right now you will have a difficult time moving forward.
Cheers to your future state.

Let these last few days of 2018 be days of peace and not confusion. Don't stress out about buying the right gifts. Do what you can afford and still live in January. The 25th will come and go but will you still be at peace? Let your peace be the most important thing over this holiday. 

Until tomorrow

Don't limit yourself with little thinking. It is better to think huge and land somewhere in there then to think small and miss what could have been yours.

We are all conditioned to just take the crumbs when the whole cake was your you just needed to take it.

Don't allow passed failures to stop you. By the way, you will make other mistakes and  have plenty of future failures but they are not the only determining factor for your outcome. We win. We win. So, don't get sidetracked.

Until tomorrow

Friday Focus

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Focus on what is important. As Christmas  gets closer focus on what is important. Some of you will spend your whole check on Christmas for things your kids won't be able to find on Jan 1st. I ask you what is important? Keeping up with people you don't know? Building a since of entitlement?  Bragging rights about how much you spent?  Will any of that matter if your health is failing?

So, I bid you to think outside the societal norms. What is that your kids really need? Could it be that they really need time and focused attention?  Could it be that they need direction for the new year? Have a family vision board party. Everyone share their dreams and vision for the future. Could it be that they need help studying for their finals?

Before you spend any more focus on what is really important and what are the steps to reaching/meeting the goals to attain the important things.

Until Monday

Wednesday Word

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Growing up my grandma used to sing this song,
In times like these you need a Savior,
In times like these you need an anchor;
Be very sure, be very sure,
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!
This Rock is Jesus, Yes He's the One,
This Rock is Jesus, the only One;
Be very sure, be very sure,
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

So while some might say,  that's an old time song, I want you to consider the thought behind it. As I watch the news I would not argue that we need a saviour and solid foundation to stand upon in this turbulent world we live in. Everybody is seeking stability from unstable sources. Reality television and social media create a false sense of reality.  It is not difficult to understand why we are experiencing pain and frustration when the foundation is not stable. We all need a solid rock to build upon.
That rock is Jesus. The lover of my soul. The lifter of my head. You might call him something else but ultimately he is the solid rock we should be building upon. A firm and stable foundation in such unstable times.
Matthew 7
24 “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

Until tomorrow

Too often we get down on ourselves because we are not making progress the way we had it laid out in our mind, however progress is progress. No matter how slow or fast others might be going we can only guage our momentum on our race.
When I was in college and got discouraged my husband would remind me that I was in graduating class of one. It didn't matter who else walked with me. I was in a class all by myself and was competing with me ad me only.
The new year is rolling around quick but there are still some things you can check off of your 2018 list. Just do it. Look yourself in the mirror and talk good to yourself. You've got this.

Until tomorrow

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you! I

First, sorry I was hit and miss last week. The vacation was restful.

Today I want you and I to talk about expectations. I am sure you will agree that the more you get hurt the less you trust. The less you trust the lower your expectations are for mankind. If I expect you to show your behind all of the time then I'm not surprised when you do. If my expectation of a partner is that they are going to dog me out then when they do it is not a surprise.

Are you reaping the results of your expectation? Everytime we lower our expectations then we give others an opportunity to get off the hook. I think we forget that raising the level of expectation will help you get to the atmospheric place where foolishness can't survive. Cut off the oxygen to situations that don't help you to prosper.

Only 21 days left in 2019 raise your expectation and choke out the foolishness. It us time for you to take charge.

James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

I am so glad that while lots of things shift and change God never does. Sometimes I can be in my own will and way but he still provides me with the good and perfect gifts that he knows that I need.  Be encouraged my friend, though everything around you may be shifting hold on to the unchanging, nonshifting, hand of God.

Know that the person you can be is your own amazing self. It's easy to copy what you see but if we ate all alike what boring world this would be. The Spice that you bring will add the flavor that somebody needs to make their day.  Come on sis just show us you.
