Does Your Talk Match Your Walk? A year ago I had a small piece I wrote published in a magazine I subscribe to. In short, I can say I’ve done it all wrong to simply scratch the surface at becoming who I am today! Just a Work In Progress being formed one breath at a time!

This here is proof that with action our dreams can become a reality!

I really believed that those silly dreams I had as a little girl were just that, Silly. This life is precious and it’s time I quit limiting myself!

My dreams are within my ability to reach…it’s just a matter of practicing making my thoughts become REALITY!  The only thing that ever stood in my way of opportunity IS ME!

9.10.15 Keep Your Eyes ON Me

I don’t recall the day or the actual time but somewhere on this journey I became aware that I still dress up the outside to defer attention to this huge gaping HOLE I have on the inside! I’ve spent my lifetime comparing my insides to everyone’s outsides; just to be left feeling less than… in doing this so regularly self-pity and victim-stance have become my commonplace. One day I sensed an almost paralyzing yet deafening whisper shouting deep inside of me, saying: “Keep Your Eyes on ME! You have a heart to serve but you must Work To Get Your Own House In Order First!

It dawned on me that apart from God I’m incomplete! That’s why it feels so good when I’m helping others, because that act of giving… puts me closer to HIM! But, I run around busy giving to others with no question, then I become resentful behind this act of love! It’s because I neglect and avoid doing the things I need to do for myself and my family, first… Charity starts at HOME!

8.28.15 Constantly Changing

I am always changing, Body , Mind and Spirit – All things are always changing!

With CHANGE being life’s only constant, you’d think the common thing is to accept it. But I still struggle with it… being a creature of habit the problem is not the change itself, it’s more how I resist and refuse to accept the change(s) taken place in my life; as if it’s some threat to me or my happiness.  The real funny thing is that in hindsight all that I perceived as “BAD CHANGES” in my life were actually blessings! The fact that I bulk at change is what presents unnecessary stress and struggle.  Since I cannot control or avoid change I must work on my perception of  it.

The “familiar” is comfortable and has a way of presenting a false sense of security. But that doesn’t mean it is good or healthy for me.  It’s not realistic to take any experience that is good and try to stretch it out for all of eternity….and avoid the bad and indifferent change all together. I don’t get to pick and choose what happens but I can choose how I am going to react to it!!!!

I simply start by embracing change and accepting that “Everything, Is Exactly As It Should Be, In This and ANY Given Moment, Otherwise It’d Be Different!”
