It Starts and Ends With You!

“Others can inspire you, but ultimately the only thing that empowers you is what lies within you and learning how to better utilize what you’ve been given.” T. D. Jakes

This quote speaks volumes and is the main point that I try to relay in my blog posts, tweets and Facebook posts. It all is up to you. It doesn’t matter how many people try to inspire and uplift you, it all starts and ends with you. You are the key to the entire process if your success. You and only you can move that mountain that is blocking your progress.

What will you do next? Stay stagnant, complacent and powerless. Will you get up and do what you’ve always wanted to do. It’s all up to you! LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE

Go Forth

Are you committed to the process?

Process is defined as “a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end”.

The process of getting to where you want to be in life.  Living your vision for your life.  More importantly, living the life that God has planned for you.  it’s important to know and realize that there is a process that you will have to go through.  There are no shortcuts, not fast track, tricks or magic that will ultimately get you there.  There is only the process.  Whatever you do in life, there is a process. Anything as simple as tying your shoe to performing brain surgery, there is a process.

What is your process?  What steps do you use to get to where you want to be?  How do you define your process?  Take some time to think about your process, write it down and begin to work the process.  Commit to your process so that you can live your life to the fullest.

As always Live, Laugh, Love

Existing

Are you just existing?  Life, is an active phase; you have to be participating.  What do I mean when I say “participating”?  Well, I mean you have to be doing something with your time.  You have to be making every moment count and living your life to the fullest. You shouldn’t be just existing, doing the same things day in and day out.  Getting up at the same time, going to work at the same place, eating the same blah lunch, coming home, eating some blah meal and plopping down in front of the television for the same boring movies and/or television shows that you’ve seen thousands of times before.  That’s not living, actually it’s almost less than existing if there is such a thing.  That sounds more like a robot or something that is moving around doing the same mundane activities everyday of your life, oops I meant to say existence.

Good Morning

I don’t know who wrote this, enjoy. I hope it’s helpful. #livelaughlove

I am God. Today I will be handling all your problems. Please remember that I do not need your help. If the devil happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, DO NOT attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in SFJTD (Stuff For Jesus To Do) box. It will be addressed in MY TIME, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold on to it or attempt to remove it. Holding on or removal will delay the resolution of your problem. If it is a situation that you think you are capable of handling, please consult me in prayer to be sure that it is the proper resolution.

Because I do not sleep nor do I slumber, there is no need for you to lose any sleep. Rest my child. If you need to contact me, I am only a prayer away. As with all good things, please pass this on.

Live It Up!

This weekend, we had beautiful weather in the Bay Area!  A group of women, including myself, had the pleasure of taking a lovely limousine ride to the Napa Valley for champagne tasting at Domaine Chandon in Yountville, California.   What a wonderful relaxing time we had.   Before our journey began we met at the event planner’s home where we had coffee, tea and a lite breakfast.  After the breakfast we played two games, name that tune and movie trivia.  On the ride up we listened to music, drank mimosas and chatted all the way.  Now, I’m not a true drinker and the mimosa on the ride up was truly enough for me, so I didn’t do any tasting at Domaine Chandon, but some of the other ladies tasted and enjoyed themselves.   While there, we enjoyed the beautiful grounds at Domain Chandon as we sat outside and continued our stimulating conversations.  After our time at Domaine Chandon our limo picked us up and took us to Graton Resort and Casino in Rohnert Park, California.  I’m not a gambler, but I had a wonderful time anyway.  It was just nice to be out with good people enjoying life!  We had packed a lunch, so there was no need for us to stop and purchase any food on our excursion.

My How You’ve Changed

Change – to become different; to make (someone or something) different; to become something else

Change.  It’s a normal occurrence that we all go through at some point in our lives, some more than others.  Some of us welcome change with open arms and others hate to see it coming in their direction.  The problem is when you want things or people around you to change to make you feel more comfortable.  I’ve got something to tell you; you can’t change anyone or anything.  The only place where you can affect change is within yourself.  Yes, that’s right it all begins with you.  If you want to live the life you have always envisioned for yourself, you have to go after your dreams.  If you want to live a happier life with less stress and more peace, you have to make it happen.  It won’t be easy, but you have to take the initiative to move your life into the direction that you want.  I promise you it will be well worth all of the hard work and sacrifices that you will make.  No one owes you anything in this life and you cannot continue sitting around waiting for opportunities to come knocking at your door.  No more excuses or playing the blame game, the choice is yours.

Here’s something to think about, what is one thing that you can change today that will help you start your journey to living the life you want and deserve?  Remember anything is possible you just have to have faith and trust in God.  Live, Laugh, Love
