Yes, you can live your best life!

The older I get the more God opens my eyes to the different personalities of people. Some of these personalities blend well with mine, while there are others who leave me hurt and confused by their actions. 

Back in 2008, Bishop TD Jakes spoke a sermon on the three types of friends. As he proceeds into his sermon he warns those listening to watch out for the character of people. 

The first group are CONFIDONTS. You will have very few of these on your life. These are your “ride or die” type of friends. They will be in your corner through Hell and high water. Whether you are up or down, they will have your back. These people don’t drain you, but rather pour back into your life so that you can pour into others. I can honestly say, I know who these people are in my life. 

The next group are the CONSTITUENTS. These people are not about you. They are merely into what you’re for. They aren’t really into you. They aren’t really your friend. They are in your life only because they like what you like. 

The third group are the COMRADES. This group of people are really not in your life for the long term. They come for a certain purpose, then they leave. Don’t expect them to react to your visions/dreams/goals the way you thought they would because they never really believed in you in the first place. 

Be careful who you tell your dreams to. 

During this year, God has truly shown me who these three types of people are in my life. I vent to God and to my husband regarding how I thought certain people were my “true” friends, yet their actions prove something different. My weakness is that I always believe the best in people. I don’t want to think bad of anyone, but some people just need to exit my life. 

It hurts that I have ask for help or support from people that I’ve wholeheartedly supported during their time of acting on the vision God has given them. For example,  I can send text messages for support with no responses. Only to send a follow up a few days later asking if they got my text, and their answer is, “yes.” Wow, I was totally disregarded. Hurts, but I know God has a plan. 

Everyone in your life is not going to be for you when you need them. This I know as truth. But, God will always be there and will supply you with not only what you need, but also put you in the company of those who will help you. 

Never give up on your dreams and goals because it seems like no one supports you. If God gave you the dream all you need to do is keep believing and trust him. Trust him, one step at a time. Trust him, one day at a time. 

Below, i’ve attached the video of the sermon if you’re interested in hearing it.

One day I asked God how could I make a difference in this world? With so much saddness going on around us, how could little ole’ me bring a smile to someone else’s face? Then he told me…

You see, I love children. I would of had more than the two I have, but I quickly learned where babies came from and I wasn’t too sold on the idea. Sorry I digressed! 

As I sat watching t.v., something I rarely do, I prayed and listened. God showed me a vision of celebrating with children on their birth day. These particular children I was to celebrate with were not your typical children. Rather, these children would be from low income homes or those living in shelters. 

I was blessed to grow up in a home and my birthday was celebrated every year by my mom. But, so often these children are overlooked due to finances or other reasons. 

This is why I wanted to start a non profit organization geared towards surprising these children with a personalized birthday party. 

This organization is still in the developing stage because with everything comes a cost. Would you please be a blessing to me and the future children I plan to celebrate by giving a donation towards the filing fees with lawyers and the IRS? Any amount would truly be a blessing. Thank you again and I’m super excited about what is about to take place in the lives of children.

So often I speak to people who are not happy with their lives. Everyday has become a routine and they feel stuck. I can honestly say that I’ve been there before. But, one thing you gotta keep pressing for is a better life. This doesn’t always mean becoming a millionaire. It actually can start with having peace of mind. 

You see everything starts in the mind. If you want a better life, you gotta see it first. If you want a better job, you have to envision yourself working there first. Whatever your dream is to do or become, you must see it in your mind first. 

When God created you, he had so much in store for you. So much in store that goes beyond working everyday then dying. God placed a purpose inside of you and he wants you to carry out your purpose. He wants you to empty yourself out so that there’s nothing left when it’s your time to make your tranision from this earth. 

Life is not meant for you to simply work, pay bills then die. 

I want to encourage you to find out what your passion and purpose is and begin to fully live life on purpose.

In six more days, I will have awesome the opportunity to speak to others regarding their purpose here on earth. I believe we were all created for a purpose and on purpose. The only thing is, many people have not discovered what their purpose is and they are simply living daily with no direction.

Then there are those who have discovered their purpose, but are too afraid to go forward with their passion. Many people are too afraid to jump due to fear of failure. Truth is we are all going to fail at some point, but that doesn’t constitute you a failure.

I plan to encourage those who attend to be risk takers and realize that we only have one life to live. Thus, we should live it to the fullest. We all have gifts and talents to share with this world, thus going to the grave full of regrets and unused gifts is not an option.

I am grateful for this opportunity to be used by God to encouraged others.

At the beginning of 2015 many people wrote out or thought about all the things in which they wanted to accomplish. Working out more, eating less red meat, cooking more at home, blogging more, meeting new people all sounded great in January and February, but where has the momentum gone?

Many people try to pull the “I’m just too busy” card, but are you really that busy? “If only there were more hours in a day,” is another phase that people often use. If someone were to actually take an inventory of their day and how they spent every hour, most people I’m sure would say that they waste a lot of time on nonproductive things.

Being nonproductive could range from checking your e-mail every thirty minutes to being in Facebook or Instagram for countless hours checking people’s statues, which are more than likely irrevalant or false.

2015 is not yet over, there is still time to accomplish your dreams, goals and aspirations. Make today the day you change how you handle your time. Focus on what’s important and get to work. Don’t allow 2016 to come and you still haven’t put a dent in what you wrote down. True you may not complete everything, but at least try to get more than less done.

Your life has purpose. Live on purpose. Get going on your dreams. It’s those dreams that are in you that can only be accomplished by you.

The life you live should never be mediorcore. At whatever age you are, you should be living your best life. True, you may not have the biggest house or the most fanciest car, but does all that really matter? What should matter the most is that you are happy with you. Outside material things shouldn’t be the deciding factor if you are going to be happy or not. So what you are not currently in a relationship, be content with being single and enjoy getting to know you.

If there is something that you’ve always wanted to do, what’s holding you back? I don’t know if you’ve realized it or not, but time is not waiting on anyone. It’s not going in reverse, only full speed ahead. Being that tomorrow is not promised, why not try focusing on your gifts, talents and purpose?

True, you may not have all the resources or experiences you may need to complete your goals, but at least get started with what you do have. Get started doing something!

Be aware there are going to be those who are going to discourage you either intentionally or unintentionally, but either way stay focused on your dream. There will always be those who don’t understand what you are trying to accomplish. Regardless, keep pressing forward and focused.

So I encourage you today, despite what set backs you may have encountered in life don’t let them keep you down. Learn how to get back up and keep at it.

Learn how to encourage yourself when you need to. Say affirmations daily. Believe in yourself. Shake off the haters and live a life that makes you smile and happy.
