Yes, you can live your best life!

The other day I was in my day to work. I had just dropped my children off at child care, only to be greeted by huge storm clouds. They were extremely dark and my first thought was to go back and get my kids. But it hadn’t started raining yet and quite frankly, I got bills to pay so I headed to work. 

As the morning progressed, the rain and wind hit against my window at work. Yet, the building or the windows were penetrated by its forces. 

This caused me to think…

Sometimes in our lives storms come. Every storm may be different for each person, but while in the storm you begin to wonder if you are going to make it through. Storms can vary from sickness, depression, death and the lack of financies. But, I want to encourage you today that although your current storm is a hard one to endure. I promise you that storm won’t last forever. 

Yes, you’re struggling and asking God, why? But, despite what you may think. Storms bring growth and change. 

By the end of my work day, the storm had cleared and there appeared a rainbow. I had made it through Yet another storm. (just like you will) And just like this storm, there will be others. But, be strong and keep the faith cause this too shall pass.

We all have a past. For many, some of the decisions that were made were not the best. But regardless, all decisions have led you to be who you are today. Yes, better choices could have your life on a different path, but you have to stop beating yourself up and keep pushing forward. Focus on the present and how to make your future better. 

If you keep allowing yourself to focus on past mistakes, you will never see the blessings of today. God is so forgiving despite what people think. But often it’s us who can’t forgive ourselves. 

If in the past a business venture didn’t work out, try it again. Do something different than before. Put a twist on it.  Faith will take you a long way. If a relationship ended that you wanted badly, cry hard one good time and let it go. There is someone out there who wants to love you. You are amazing. 

Never accept defeat! 

The past is there to teach us, but we can’t wallow in it. If God has given you a new day, take hold of it and make the best of it. You are awesome. You are not your past. You have potentional. 

Believe in yourself and your future!

What I have learned during my time here on earth is that everyone has an opinion? To some degree, to be opininated could be a good thing. That means you have your own mind and you are not afraid to express your feelings and views. But, what happens when your opinion is not warranted and has the ability to hurt someone in your process of expressing yourself? 

Honestly, no one can stop an opinionated person from saying whatever, but you can manage how you receive their opinions. Only you can allow what someone says to go in one ear and out the other. Or, you can allow their words to cause you to question how awesome you are as a person and keep you in bondage.

So what someone doesnt like your new dress. If you like it, that is all that matters. When you look in the mirror and only see fabulous then that’s all what counts. 

Where I see most people are still in bondage is when it comes to their past. Yes, you messed up way back when. But, you are a better person now. Stop allowing the opinions of others who knew you way back then, to keep you in your past. God has the ability to help anyone who wants to change. People are always evolving, so ignore the haters. Ignore those who never have anything positive to say. Ingore their opinions and keep pressing forward. 

Sometimes, you gotta make new friends!

We all have a past, but the great thing is that we all have a future too. God’s opinion of you is the only one that truly matters. I encourage you to live the very best life you can live and ignore any counteraction against what you are trying to achieve! 

Everyday God grants everyone the freedom of free-will. After the world and man was created he gave him dominion over the earth. Sadly, with free-will and dominion “man” has caused much destruction across the world and within himself. People may ask why won’t God step up and end the horrible things that are happening across the world. But the truth is, he is allowing us humans free reign and free-will. God does not take back what he has free given. Unfortunately, with this free reign we are slowly killing each other and destroying our planet while ignoring the creator in the process.  

“Lord, you see me suffering. Why won’t you help me pay my bills?” Honestly, yes God sees everything that you are going through, but let me ask you. Did any of your prior choices lead you to such despair? When you had the money to pay your bills, what did you choose to rather spend it on? Keeping it 100%, some stuff we cause on ourselves. I personally can tell my testimony about this.

God gave us all the power of choice. You choose what you were going to wear today, if you were going to brush your teeth or not, which route you were going to take to work, if you were going to eat breakfast or not.You choose who you were going to text or call today. What tweets or posts you were going to make. You choose you would be in your circle of friends, who you were going to marry, if you were going to forgive and even if you were going to hold a grudge. Life is about choices. Your today choices affect your tomorrow life. A simple equation many people don’t get.

In order to live your best life, you have to pray to make good choices. Yes, it’s invitible that we are all gonna make some “not so good choices”. But, when you do, learn from the experience and try to make better choices in the future. Be encouraged, God is willing to help you, but you have to allow him to do so.

Super excited about speaking at my MADE FOR MORE Motivational event on Saturday. I know many people were not able to make it, so I wanted to share the video of the event. I pray it blesses you.

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.

I can’t believe June will be here in only a few days. Wow, where has this year gone? It seems as though time is going on warp speed. As I sit here I ponder on my dreams and goals. Am I accomplishing the things I set out to do? Am I giving life to my vision board? Am I using my gifts and talents to encourage and help others? Tomorrow is not promised, so staying focused is a must.

In my opinion life is a balancing act. With working full time, being a mom, a newlywed, author and aspiring motivational speaker, I need more time. Or, do I?

“Redeeming the time because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:16

This scripture speaks volumes. With all that I am trying to accomplish in my life, I must be wise with my time. I must be wise with who I hang around and the activities I endulge in. I must stay focused on my goals, my dreams and visions.

Life is a balancing act, but with focus things can be accomplished. With focus you can cause your dreams to become a reality. Balancing means you’re not trying to keep up with the Jones’s. Balancing means you are in tune with the time you have, thus you make the most of it.

Leaning how to balance doesn’t happen over night, so don’t get discouraged. But rather, with each day focus on your goals a little at a time. Celebrate the small sucesses and always appauld yourself. Pray for direction and always keep moving in a foward direction.

Before you know it, the time you have been given was used wisely and effectively and you were able to accomplish a lot.
