“Breaking the Chain”

I had an interesting day today but I realized that this opportunity was presented for a “Teaching Moment.” Sometimes I think that situations arise between family, friends and relationships, to allow growth or to help bring order to relationships. I feel that we have gotten away from our “teaching moments.”  When I was growing up and although I never really thought about it I was constantly given little nuggets of life. Of course at that time it was more of a village, you didn’t just have “one mother” everyone played a role in your life in every facets. I miss that so I try to use that with my girls every chance I get. Even though they are older those lessons are more important now because the situations are no longer simple. We all know that there is no Mother Handbook….I wished there were at times but we basically go off our blueprint that was presented to us from our parents and what we learn along the way. Which may at times not be the appropriate thing, that’s how bad habits get established in any relationships because the lack of just talking, explaining or expressing your emotions. I have a bad habit of holding back sometimes, so consequently I created a pattern that my family thinks that I am “SuperWoman” but I am not. No cape for me! So I expressed how I felt, talked it out and explained what they made me feel like and they explained how they felt. We talked it and BOOM no problem on that issue anymore. A hug at the end and everything...

What makes you rock?

We are resilient, happy and purposeful. Stop being the norm, know that you are a princess and what defines us is our character -which will enhance your walk, attitude and  spirit. Whatever you choose to do in life, get busy about it and it’s okay to change your mind. Do know that you will fall. We all do, but we get up. Take your time and do what makes you fulfilled. No one can fill that space for you but you. When one girl excels, we all do -meaning when your friend is having nice things, doing great things; don’t hate, congratulate, participate, emulate and elevate. It makes me proud to see other women excel. Find something in your heart, put it in your mind and do it. God has manifested his whole plan for us but we have to be ready. Even in our fear we have to believe. You don’t have to be a star, actress, singer, director or famous you can be a star right where you are. Lights, camera action! Our spirit is our light, the camera is our mind and our life is our action. Honor it and yourselves everyday and know that God has an assignment for all of us....

Trying Times

Man, I am really being tested, it seems like everything that can go wrong has gone wrong. I’ve been sick with these crazy sinuses and they are putting up a major fight. But here is the thing about me, I will remain steadfast because I believe what is for me is for me. I believe that God is going to rain a blessing down on me that I’m going to drown in his mercy. So when you feel like you can’t go on…..give it to him. He wants you too, he is leading me to the well but I know he can’t make me drink but I’m putting my whole face in that bucket! Faith says, ” I don’t know where it’s coming from, I don’t know how it’s coming, I don’t care how it’s coming BECAUSE GOD you said it was coming....
