Wait vs Weight

While waiting on things to change, something to come to pass, on a storm to be over or just simply waiting on your turn, don’t get weighted down by anxiety, worry, frustration, envy, or impatience. Those things will wear you down and cause you to give up on things that are are about to show up. You may have to watch others get that house, car, husband, wife, job, promotion, start a business, get celebrated or whatever the case maybe. You may have to watch others get what exactly what you have prayed, begged, cried and pleaded for. Your time is coming and you may want one thing but He is trying to give you better. Cast the weight off your shoulders and stand up. Be patient in the wait. Your time is coming! #shewrites #shespeaks #shemotivates #sheempowers #sheinspires #s2s #sheisaboss #author #publisher #purpose #passion #blessed316 #thework #comingsoon

It’s Sunday morning. I get up and getting ready for church. I’m up earlier because of a class to be held before regular service. Get out the door on time although I’m tired and wanna stay in the bed. Stop and get my coffee. Pull up to church and not one single car. I go back to look at the message about the meeting and it was yesterday! I’m looking at my phone like πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ. It’s been so crazy the last few weeks with games, work, practice and multitasking everything trying to get things done that I simply just dropped the ball. Funny thing is normally, I get down hard on myself when I forget something or mess something up but this time…I just laughed. I laughed at myself real hard.

So now I’m sitting in this empty parking lot and thinking. I’m thinking about all the crazy stuff that has happened over the past few weeks. Thinking about how crazy stuff has been. See, I have been trying to figure out why it seems like I have been under some sort of attack. Kids acting crazy. People I don’t even know have been trying me by having such nasty attitudes and feeling like they can handle me any kind of way. Never seems like I have enough time or money to do what I need and want. Running here, there and everywhere. The insanity has been real! Then my husband, out of the blue, tells me, when we were talking about the kids and whatnot, he says “In this season, you have to be careful.” He said he felt a strong urge to tell me that. I didn’t question it because I knew it was a message…a divine one. I didn’t question it nor did I ponder it so I went right back into my insanity: crazy schedule, kid’s shenanigans, tired from running here and there.

Fast forward…here I am in this empty parking lot with my daughter. Blogging. I haven’t been able to do it in awhile. I have so many started but not published. See, in all this chaos, people have been dropping gems on me about getting rest and why so many things have been happening to me that have been trying to break me and get me out of my character. I am seeing that the enemy really messes with people that have something valuable inside of them and they are right on the verge of something great. The enemy will mess with the mind and try to knock that person off course and try to force them to give up and walk away from it all. That person is me. I know that my gift, my purpose is about to take a turn for greatness. I don’t know how. I don’t know when but I know something explosive is about to happen. The enemy doesn’t mess with anything worthless….EVER!

Why am I telling you all of this? Because that same person who is going through hell and back and don’t understand why just may be you, too.

Stay the course. I am. I know there’s a reason for all of this. Sometimes you have to go through stuff just so you can truly understand how to not only help yourself but those around you. Sometimes you have to go through things to make you tougher, to strengthen you. Sometimes you have to go through things to teach different ways to handle situations. Sometimes you have to go through things because God is trying to get your attention. No matter what the reason, keep fighting. Keep pushing!

I posted this the other day because I felt this strong urge to do so:

And the message I attached to it was:

In walking in our purpose or simply just living every day life, the enemy will try to play on our minds with negativity, stress, people and their actions, situations that seem beyond our control and things of the like. The enemy will fill us with self- doubt, fear, anxiety and try to push us til we want to give up. Don’t give in to it’s tricks. Don’t give in to that pressure. Fight back with positivity. Fight back with your pressing no matter what it looks like. Fight back with the drive that you had when you started. Fight back with loving yourself and others. Fight back with hope. Fight back with prayer. Fight back with living! Give the enemy the fight of it’s life!

This is what I’m feeling today. Although this day started off crazy, I’m motivated to keep going no matter what. I was trusted with this life to live it at all cost and am given strength every day to keep pushing. This is for you, too. Everything you have going on is for you. No matter what how good, bad or ugly life can get, you have been entrusted to see it through. It may seem hard but you are not alone. God has got your back. Keep going.

Have a great Sunday! It’s almost time for me to go in for Sunday School with my early selfπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Thoughts

Over the past month, I have had do.e experiences with people and situations that are showing who I am and who people really are. It’s been encounters like no other. So here are my thoughts:

Narcissists:

You can try but you can’t tell nothing about nothing. They know it all and they want to control it all. They don’t understand certain things until it happens to them. The funny thing about them is you can talk about them dead in their face and they wouldn’t even know it. While their attitudes irk me to my core, I get a chuckle from actually doing this and it makes me smile. I have had one narcissist talk about another narcissist to me and I would just die laughing and say, ” I know right!” I would give examples of themselves without saying their name and they would be like “That’s crazy!” In my head, I’m thinking ummm I’m talking about you. Instead of me trying to get a point across to them and getting mad at how they are, I just say what I gotta say whether they get it or not. At least they know how I feel about a narcissist. You can’t beat them….just get you a good laughπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Surviving R. Kelly:

My opinion is just that: my opinion. My heart goes out to the abused and the abuser who was abused as well. I’m angry with anyone who helped him along the way. I hate he never got help. I hate what these girls had to go through and may be still going through because they don’t have the strength yet to get out. I hate people ignored the red flags and STILL put their loved ones I harms way. I read the anonymously published book and was horrified! There is destruction all the way around. We may never know the entire truth about everyone involved but God does. I hope they all get help. One thing I feel for certain….there is more truth in this than lies.

2018…I bid you farewell

We are down to the very last day of the year. It is hard to believe that this year has went by so fast but it did. I can honestly say that this has been a year of purging for me. I do not think that I have had such an eye-opening year. The crazy part about that is that it didn’t really sink in how eye-opening it was until the last few days of this year.

In 2018, I finished writing and released my first book. I bore some of the most personal parts of my soul. I have gone through some changes mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally before, during and after the release. This year took me through many seasons. No matter what I went through, each event, occurrence, incident or whatever you want to call it, it pushed me into a deeper level of my being. It strengthened my discernment when dealing with people. It gave me a clearer picture of what my purpose is. I can’t and I won’t turn back now. 2018 showed me where I am supposed to be and what I should be going after. This year owes me absolutely nothing. I am thankful, grateful and humbled by it all. Tonight, I say goodbye.

2019 is already calling for me…

And I am answering! What a way to start off the new year by speaking to our young people. I am so excited, so honored and so humbled. This is divine proof that I am not taking this journey alone. Along the way, I want to empower, impact and encourage others through sharing my story, my thoughts and what I have been blessed with to give others healing, hope and a fresh leash on life. This is only the beginning.

Stay tuned😊 Goodbye 2018…HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Thoughts

Been a minute since I have blogged. Today, my mind is overloaded with thoughts. Thinking about what a ride 2018 has been and what 2019 may bring. In 2018, I turned 40 and released a book. I have had opportunities on top of opportunities to speak and walk in my purpose. Now…it’s time to up the ante.

I question myself daily. I question my wants, needs, desires and actions. I want to make sure that they are leading to something…building something…becoming something. I have to be 100% honest with myself about my life, where it’s headed and the people in it. Play time really is over. Trying things on for size is no longer action. It’s do or die.

I saw a picture on social media that slapped me all in my face and it really started the avalanche of thoughts. It was this one:

Basically, this gave me my template for 2019. And I didn’t wait until 2019 to start. It was immediate! My eyes are more open to things around me. My spirit is more sensitive to the vibes I get from people. My thoughts are no longer small and mediocre. I serve a Big God so I have to think on a bigger scale. The foundation and common denominator to everything that is going on with my thoughts and plans is preparation. My mindset is that there’s nothing I can’t do or have as long as I prepare for it. Anticipate greatness at all times. You truly do achieve what you believe. I know I used to be guilty of talking too much about my plans before I even set one thing in motion. The bigger mistake was I was talking to the wrong people about it. I opened the door to skepticism, negative thoughts and people making me feel like my dreams were ridiculous and I couldn’t do it. This is why you have to learn how to discern what to say, what not to say and who to say it to. Let your work speak for you. Until then…

I am determined to make 2019 the template of the greatness that I will follow and help others to follow as well. Don’t wait for the New Year…start now!

Why me?

I used to find myself asking myself this question. All of these bad things would be happening and seemed neverending. It was one bad thing after another after another. Nothing seemed to let up. It took a long time before I finally understood. It was preparing me for my season. My vision. My purpose. However…….a few days ago….I found myself asking again…why me?

See the past few days have been a little trying. It has been filled with alot of writing, thinking, questions and planning. Working on the next book. Preparing for upcoming speaking engagements. Reading. Researching. Work. Home. Kids. Hubby. All of this is going on simultaneously. Then in the midst of it all, life was happening. Family emergencies. Bouts with sickness. Schedule conflicts. Last minute hiccups. This chaos led to this side of why? Why me? I say this side because even though all of that is going on, I had a real smile on my face. Not a fake til you make it smile but a real smile with joy. I know I was chosen. I was chosen for this. I was chosen to fulfill this purpose. I was chosen to handle all of this. The old me would not have been able to handle this. But this me is killing it!

I say all of that to say this: YOU’VE GOT THIS! You can handle whatever comes your way because it was designed just for you and noone can handle it like you but you. Don’t give up in the middle. See it to the end. There is greater after this.
