Long ago, I erected an idol in my mind of the Christian Woman. The Christian Woman found the time to blow-dry her hair before church. She and her childhood sweetheart and their well behaved brood of children arrived each Sunday with their clothes right side in and their shoes on the right feet. She taught Sunday school and sipped tea at ladies’ functions. She found the time to cart casseroles to potlucks, kiddos to soccer practice, and donations to the food-bank in her mini-van.
Are you living the life you want? Do you make time for yourself? Do you handle yourself with care? Do you express yourself?
Life is what God gave you for free. Style & Expressing who you are is what you do with it. Are you ready for this? Defining your Inner Being Self for Yourself. Are you going to take a front-row seat in your own life? Become who you want to be! Take the time for self regularly, try detox mentally?! How often do you reward yourself? Have you fully let go of painful past experiences that may hinder your growth? What are you doing to stop the wear and tear on your inner self? The answers to these questions can be extremely tough, but its okay to pull yourself to the side for a much needed break on you emotional well being. Take all the time you need. Self seduction in full effect. Take the necessary time for self impact on your emotional state and physical health as well. Honor yourself.
DO NOT LET ADVERSITY STUMP YOU….STAND FIRM!!!! SOLID FOUNDATION. DO NOT GIVE IN, GIVE UP, OR GIVE OUT!
THE TRUE MEANING OF ENDURANCE , PREPARATION MEETS OPPORTUNITY, ALLOW YOURSELF TO WITHSTAND WHATEVER COMES YOUR WAY.
While you’re having your first cup of coffee, sit back and think of the things that you’re thankful for.
The aroma of the coffee;
That first sip of coffee;
The beautiful morning;
The beginning of a new day full of promise;
The quiet just before the day officially starts.
Grace Before Meals. Giving thanks before each meal recognizes all of the people whose hard work was necessary for you to have food on your table–everyone from the farmer who grew the food, and the person who cooked the meal.
It’s a moment to pause and be mindful, as well as feel blessed that you have all of the food and nourishment that you need.
Things You Take For Granted. Imagine losing some of the things that you take for granted, such as your home, your ability to see or hear, your ability to walk, or anything that currently gives you comfort. Then imagine getting each of these things back, one by one, and consider how grateful you would be for each and every one.
Obviously, things won’t always go your way. However, gratitude isn’t an emotion that is reserved for those moments when you get what you want. When things go wrong you can use the power of gratitude to release some of the negative emotions that you may be feeling due to the failure or setback that you just experienced.
After a negative event put things in perspective by remembering that every difficulty carries within it the seeds of an equal or greater benefit. When faced with adversity, ask yourself the following questions:
“What’s good about this?”
“What can I learn from this?”
“How can I benefit from this?”
“Is there something about this situation that I can be grateful for?”
LETS BE GRATEFUL TODAY! SEE WHATS THERE, INSTEAD OF WHAT ISNT!
Illusions, wrongly perceived or interpreted by the senses, deceptive appearance or impression. A false idea or belief. You cant keep hanging onto who or what has already left or what’s gone, and you cant keep waiting on who or what, that was never on their or its way. Let go of all Illusions. Let go. Move forward with your life, move on. Its never to late to start over, surround yourself with people who lift you up to a higher standard of living in reality. Let go of all illusions in your life.
The Greatest Enemy of knowledge is not Ignorance, it is the illusion of Knowledge.
Your only Obligation in any Lifetime is to be True to Yourself.
All Human Unhappiness comes from not Facing Reality exactly as it is.
If the World was hungry????
WOULD WE HUNT OUR IGNORANCE & GATHER OUR COMPASSION?
WOULD WE BE SATISFIED BY THE SAME CUP?
WOULD WE BREAK BREAD INSTEAD OF BONES AND FEAST ON GRATITUDE?
WOULD WE EAT AT THE SAME TABLE?

Bounce Back. In life, you always have a choice. Be Weak! or Be Strong!
Who you truly are as a person is best revealed by who you are during times of conflict and crisis. If you can be strong during challenging times you truly are a disciplined and spirited person. That is a True identity.
Push Forward. Whenever the downfall or past calls or you’re tempted to dwell on it, the best word that should come to mind is “Forward”. Move forward with a great action & positivity. Acceptance is okay, despite the struggles, conflicts or crisis. Acceptance can mean, your ready, and don’t want to struggle anymore. You’ve excepted it and plan to move forward with action mentally & physically.
Although we dread the tears, pain & total loss of any control over situations, we find out later in our lives it was actually a great & necessary thing and gives us the opportunity to grow and learn our strengths. Bounce yourself Back to being a better, greater you. You are worth it, its your life, don’t fear.
Romans Chapter 8
THERE is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after flesh, but after the spirit. 2. For the law of the spirit of life in CHRIST JESUS hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the Flesh. 4. That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after flesh, but after the spirit. 5. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh, but they that are after the spirit the things of the spirit. 6. For to be CARNALLY minded is death; but to be SPIRITUALLY minded is Life and Peace.
7. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, Neither indeed can be. 8. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 But if the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken you mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of GOD.
