I am grateful!

How can you be thankful and show gratitude for what you do and don’t have? Well, here’s an example ~images-2

I’m thankful for my car, but if I didn’t have a car, I’m thankful for legs that can walk me to transportation or wherever I needed to go. I’m thankful for my job but if I didn’t have a job, I’m thankful for eyes to look at job sites that are hiring. I’m thankful for my children but if I didn’t have any, I’m thankful for the womb that can carry children. If I couldn’t have children, I’m thankful for adoption, inside or outside the family. Moral of the story ~ there’s always a reason to be thankful.

Gratitude is necessary in your daily walk. When you are grateful, doors open and the universe responds with excellent gratitude of more of the same.

Much Love,

I got over it~

Today, I overcame fear with courage.

A-Bud-of-Love-31000I made the calls. I walked the path. I tried the food. I did the opposite of what I wanted and ended up giving myself exactly what I needed.

Push beyond your problems and step in the realm of purpose!

Just a little something~

You must be willing to let go of everything and everyone else so that you can get to self which leads to the heart of the matter.create

All I can do is be who God has created me to be.

Sometimes you have to get lost to find your way~

We are living in a day and age where we can simply press google maps or any other type GPS to get us to our destination. However, when it malfunctions where does that leave us? We get lost! We constantly hear rerouting, make a u-turn, signal lost, proceed to route, or nothing at all. That can be frustrating, nerve wrecking, or scary if you make the wrong turn.

I live in a state where everything is so spread out in one big circle, yet people still don’t know their way. Moreover, it’s the same intersections taking you from here to there. Once I learned that, I traveled the roads and got lost twice because I refused to use GPS. I wanted and needed to find my own way. Of course I was frustrated, wasted gas, lost travel time and used mileage but that’s what l had to go through to find my way.

In life we will be challenged with all kinds of distractions, obstacles, and bad timings and there’s nothing technology can do to save us, we simply have to find our way or make a way.

Today, I challenge you to LOOK UP at signs, learn landmarks, travel a second or third time without the use of GPS. Watch how much easier finding your way can be. It will get to the point people will ask you for directions 🙂 Moral of the story~

Don’t get lost repeating the same route you’ve traveled multiple times. You can learn when you look up to see the signs!!

Happy Birthday to me!!! 07/13 #CancerSeason

I’m doing the most!

I don’t always feel like smiling but that’s when I smile the most. I don’t always feel like loving but that’s when I show it the most. I don’t always feel like laboring but that’s when I work the most. I don’t always feel like writing but that’s when I post.aquarelle-kulik-catherine-earl-2011

Moral of the story~ stay diligent and GOD will stay faithful in seeing you always get what you give the most. Happy Thursday ~ do the MOST!

I”m in love!

If loving me is wrong then forget being right.

Being in love with self, flaws and all, is such perfection. When you’ve got a made up mind to make up your mind about you~congratulations, you’ve arrived.1ef6caa937eeed2b7092f0143f8afcea

Self love is sweeter than chocolate!

Twitter’s trending topics

I often find myself on twitter looking at what or who’s trending.    It keeps me informed 🙂

To my surprise, I saw Kevin Hart was a trending topic.Kevin-hart-1 “OMGosh, I hope nothing has happened to him”, was my initial thought. So I hurried to see why he was trending and to my disappointment, I realized he was in battle with Mike Epps over whose funnier.  Are you kidding me?

Both men have a lane or path to walk and I find both to be pretty funny.  One comment said Mike Epps is hood funny while Kevin Hart is Hollywood funny. I can’t lie, I chuckled a little bit at that comment. I started reading more and got disgusted actually. I couldn’t believe people were making this a big deal. It all started over Mike posting a picture of him and Eddie Murphy. Some random made the statement of Eddie being funnier than Kevin, to which Mike replied “Everyone is funnier.”

Kevin, “Nobody is selling tickets like me”

Mike “That’s not even press worthy” to which Kevin replied with a nice long message stating he has a ‘crab in a barrel’ mentality. Of course Mike responded calling Kevin a person who loves to play victim.

This was really too much for me. For people to keep this going with their comments is ridiculous and fueling them to keep going.

We can’t be about love if we responding to hate. We can’t be about love if we’re spreading gossip and not the gospel. We can’t be about love if we’re always at war. Moral of the story~

Just because someone else is shining doesn’t mean you will go dim. The only person capable of dulling your light is YOU. Don’t play yourself, reward yourself by not playing by anybody rules but your own.

Much Love,

I am who I say…

My daily affirmations help me grow, believe, maintain and stay in a place of tranquility. Now I’m not saying I don’t have bad moments, but for the most part, I’ve learned to breathe in the moment and exhale the toxic.

I speak life over me and believe what I say to be truth, even if it doesn’t LOOK like it. I say things like I’m a millionaire, I’m a loving wife and I’m neither of these things in the flesh but spiritually, I’m all that!

Basically, you shall have what you say, so say something GREAT!. Believe in you because you matter greatly. cropped-gold-hearts-glitter-stars.gif

I am love. I am light. I am peace. I am joy. I am wisdom walking. I am abundance. I am a loving wife. I am a giver. I am a smart investor. I am one with God. I have all I need and enough to give away. I am! Who are you?

Much Love,

All of this winning!

I’m sure you’ve heard the song with Beyoncé  and DJ Khaled titled “Shinning”.  If you haven’t I’ll add the link for you to view. There’s a particular verse that says ‘Money don’t make me happy & a fella can’t make me fancy. Smiling for a whole other reason, it’s all smiles through all four seasons” Then she goes on to say ~ Shinning, shinning, shinning, shinning yeaaaahhh~ All of this winning! That speaks so much to my spirit. I’ve been through so much but I’m still here. My family has suffered tremendous loss,  but we’re still here. My friends have come and gone, but I’m still here. The pain sometimes seemed unbearable, but I’m still here. If you’ve suffered any of these things and you’re still here to tell your story, YOU are winning!

Don’t mistake problems as failure and don’t mistake failure as loss. All of these things had to happen so that you can win. Set backs are only setups to elevate you to a different perspective, a GODLY perspective. When you’re down to nothing please know GOD is up to something BIG. Everyone and everything is not meant to go where you’re headed. Stay diligent, stay the course, stay positive, stay sane and mostly stay faithful. You are winning and I am excited to see your glow up! (HAPPY FRIDAY)

Much Love,
