Wednesday Word

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity but of power, love, and self-discipline.
2 Tim. 1: 7.  

Today I want you to walk in the God-given power you have within you. Don't settle for second best. It is time for you to accept the love the universe is sending to you. Girl, you are a queen and we walk in our authority. No more fear, hesitation, or doubt. Stand on the word. Discipline your mind, spirit, and finances. You taking control of you will enable you to step through the doors of possibilities. Yes, is for you. Time to take your rightful place and the authority vested in you by the power of the Holy Spirit. Take your stilettos and stomp on the enemies head today. You got this. 

Until tomorrow
#liveBlessed

Tuesday Transformation

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

This morning I just want to remind you that after all you have been through you're still here. Through each situation that was designed to take you out you survived. Don't take this lightly. You have a purpose. As you grow and transform into who you are called to be you will see your worth and will celebrate that you don't look like what you've been through.

Until tomorrow

Ladies, if you have not checked your calendar August is almost over. WHAT? Yes, I know it just started yesterday and now we are almost in Septemeber. With the days flying by like they are what are you doing to make sure that you have your business in order? Do you have your retirement planning done? Do you know what the rest of 2019 looks like for you? Have you sought God for direction for what the rest of 2019 is supposed to look like?

It is so easy to just start making plans and filling our calendars without seeking real direction and knowing what the real goal is. We all want to be financially secure but what does that look like and what are you and I willing to do to make that happen? Never be so caught up in wealth and success that you get unbalanced. Having things without peace is not worth it. Nobody wants to be poor but peace and clear direction are more important than millions. Seek peace and direction and once you obtain them walk therein. I am seeing people young and old all around me leaving this life and many of them are doing so without being fulfilled in their lives. This doesn't have to be your or my story. When you know better you do better.

Until tomorrow

Friday Focus

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Yesterday I had a video shoot for a fairly major organization so I decided to get my face beat (put on make up). It is not something I do often but it's a fun change up. My husband smiled when he saw me and said it looked but that I was just fine without it. Later, I post a picture on Facebook. I got lots of comments from I didn't recognize you to cute. All that to say this.
I can see how some people can loose themselves behind social media. If I was looking for :friends" ,validation,  a stroke to my bruised ego I could have received it. If I was not stable in who I am I would be looking to do things that would get me those kinds of comments everyday. Needless to say I will stick to my lipstick,  mascara, eye color look and keep it pushing.
I appreciate the love but I was to stay focused on the important stuff. Make sure you are beautiful on the inside and the rest will take care of itself.

Until Monday

Maya Angelou said, my mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
As you transform your life thriving and not just surviving must be your focus.

Thursday Thoughts

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

I saw this posted today and knew that I needed to remind you to live. So, I ask you, Are you living or just existing? If you are just existing then it is time for you to get moving. You don't have time to allow life to pass you by. You should be living every day to the most.

Until tomorrow

Wednesday Word

Good morning, 
Grace and peace be unto you!

The scripture that is laying on my heart this morning is, 


Isaiah 54:17 Amplified Bible (AMP)

“No weapon that is formed against you will succeed;
And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn.
This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord.

No matter what we are going through today God is just reminding us that it will not succeed. The devil might form the weapons because the ones he used yesterday didn't work but they too will not succeed. Don't get distracted by the arrows whizzing by your head. Stay focused on your peace. Peace in your mind, body, and spirit. Resist the urge to chase down the people with your name in their mouth. Truth always wins out. 

Until tomorrow

Good morning,

Four questions, from the 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace,  to ask yourself as you continue your transformation.

Are you creating more value than you are taking?
In life, you are going to assume one of two positions. Either you will seek to create value for others or you will position yourself to extract value for yourself. Good leaders inspire people to move beyond being value consumers (simply seeking “What’s In It For Me”) to value contributors.

Are you leaving a positive wake?
A boat going through water leaves a wake behind it. Our lives, too, leave a ripple as we cruise through various environments. That wake will either be positive or negative. We all have that person in our lives that we try to avoid. The one who sees a dark lining in every bright cloud; that person who saps our energy with their negativity. But we also have those individuals who brighten our day with their smiles and words of encouragement.

What problem are you solving?
The world is filled with problem identifiers. They are the complainers who cast aspersion and blame for something gone wrong rather than taking responsibility for resolving it. But, the best way to create value and the fastest way to make a positive wake is to find the biggest problem you can find and apply your passion and strengths to solve it.

What part are you willing to own?
Ownership empowers people to take responsibility for creating value. Healthy people want autonomy and an opportunity to grow in self-mastery.

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you.
Today I want to remind you to be thankful for life, health, and strength. Too often we take things for granted and they could be sucked away so quickly.

There was a death in our family last week fairly unexpected. While you might not be 100% all the tune you don't expect to die. Some of you will say that's pretty a matter of fact and you are right. We fear death because it is the ultimate in change and things that are not within our complete control. Instead of being fearful be ready. Have you affairs in order. Make plans with the mortuary of your choice to pick out everything you want. Make sure there is a policy to cover it. Write out your obituary so what is said is true and reflects your life completely and not just the pieces your loved one were a part of. There was life pre-children.

Don't put it off. Yes, it is uncomfortable but it is necessary. The most loving thing you can do for your family is to make them not have to think about a thing. Have everything planned.

Until tomorrow

Thursday Thoughts

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

What is your love language? In our crazy busy world, it is easy to ignore speaking our families love languages. It is also important that you keep your in mind as you determine how matriculated through relationship ebbs and flows.

WORDS OF AFFIRMATION: In the age of technology, we can often overlook the simple pleasure of receiving a postcard. Why not pick up or design a few postcards you can keep on hand at home or the office? Write a short note of encouragement and commit to sending a postcard a day to different individuals for 30 days. Be careful though; you just may get addicted to the joy of brightening someone's day!

ACTS OF SERVICE: Studies have shown that clutter increases stress. If a friend or family member has been too busy to straighten up or get things in order, offer to help them organize. Choose a day you can tackle the kitchen drawers, child's playroom, garage, car, or other space. Set a time, and show up ready to help. After you are done, celebrate your accomplishment together!

GIFTS: Do you have some gently used items around the house that you don't use anymore? Look around and notice who might those items bless if you were to gift them. Whether it's a pair of old sunglasses, a lamp that someone has commented on, or cell phone sitting in a drawer, paying it forward can be fun and rewarding—it's a win-win!

QUALITY TIME: If you have a little extra money, watch the airline specials. When you see a stellar deal on tickets to an obscure location, research fun activities in the area. If you find a famous "dive" restaurant, community festival or celebration, or historic attraction, see if you can put together a quick, inexpensive day trip with a friend.

PHYSICAL TOUCH: We often underestimate the value of sitting in close proximity to those we love. Whether you are in a restaurant or watching TV on the couch, be mindful that you are not routinely separating yourself physically. Depending on the relationship, be aware of comfort levels, but be generous with your presence.

Today and in days moving forward, declare the following scripture over your life. 

Proverbs 10:7a(KJV) The memory of the just is blessed... In our society, we are so busy being busy that we forget some things. Declare over your life that your memory is blessed. Trust me, I am adding this to the things that I daily declare over my life.

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

This morning as I was scrolling I saw the picture below and it really spoke the truth I needed to hear and you probably do too. We are emotional beings. It's what helps to distinguish us from some of the other creatures on the earth but we can not all our emotions to rule us. When we are ruled by our emotions we become unstable because our emotions can change with our circumstances, hormones, and moods.

Emotionally mature people are not moved by every wind that blows. They take their time to analyze and determine the best course of action even when it doesn't benefit them. I'll be honest I'm not totally there yet but it's a goal that I'm working toward.

We have to move past our hurts and pains to get to a place of stability and maturity. I'm not saying it's easy but it is necessary if we want transformation in our lives.

Until tomorrow

I was looking at a box of light bulbs. On the side, it says how many lumens each one has and the anticipated longevity of each. So, how does that relate to you and I? Many of us are going through life and not really being cognizant of how and with whom we spend our time but just like the light bulb you only have some many hours of light within you. When your bulb goes out that is it. Who and what are you shining your light on? There are only 148 days left of 2019. What do you still need to accomplish? Don't get complacent and procrastinate the year away. Make these last 148 the best part of this year. You can do it. I am here cheering you on. Greatness is in your future.
