Because I decided to take the steps to find my joy instead of wallowing in my problems, I am better now than I was a day, month, or year ago.
Don't let your problems fester, do something now to find joy❤💪🏾🎉
There is a lie we believe that if we aren’t in control, we will experience pain, regret, heartache and disappointment. So out of fear we operate once again. We set our schedule with busyness and lists to feel like we can control Gods plan. As I deal with the illness of my pet, I have lost sleep, been cranky and experiencing great sadness. But out of fear and a need to control I push through my day trying to accomplish everything to make it feel as if I have some kind of control. And where does it leave me? Tired, cranky and depressed. And my pet is still facing death. All my striving in life fixes nothing and now I need to learn to rest in Him. It’s the only alternative. Sometimes we have to sit with that pain and instead of avoiding it with our schedules we have to just sit with it and rest knowing that God holds us in the palm of His hand and He’s got us. #restinhim #godswaysarebetter #slowdown #fearisaliar #begoodtoyourself #dontrunfromit #allowgodtowork
I truly believe that for the vast majority of people, negativity and optimism are a choice. One or the other might be more ingrained in us based on the environment we grew up in and by the “friends” we surround ourself, but at the end of the day it is still a choice.
We can’t always control what happens to us in life, but we can control how we react to it. Adversity can make you or it can break you. It also give you perspective like no other, and if you choose to embrace it rather than resent it, you will become stronger than your wildest dreams. -
As there is no stronger foundation in all the world than one formed from embracing and overcoming adversity.

In life, you can either run from your purpose or lean in! I’ve been running from mine for too long, time to do it wholeheartedly and see where it takes me!

and a person that may seem like they are on top of the world clearly may be not. We don’t know what goes on in anyone’s head as it’s not our own. Pay attention. Ask #questions

at the end of the day can change the world.
What makes you tick?
Do you own it?
Are you afraid of what people will think of you?
I use to be too.
I use to be terrorized and paralyzed by the thought of people judging me...but judging me for what I felt in my heart or knew was right.
The minute I stopped and followed my heart, my intuition, and the voice...I found power and purpose.
My purpose is to expand.
My purposes is to inspire.
My purpose is to share my lessons and lead from the front.
There is no doubt, this was a scary place to admit that I am in.....
But it should not have been..
My heart tells me it’s so...and so it will be.

Work hard and be focused BUT don’t forget to stop and smell the roses along the way. What’s the point of working hard if you won’t allow yourself to enjoy the fruits of your labor and have someone to share memorable experiences with? At the end of the day- when we’re in our final moments on our death bed- we won’t be looking around to see our money, cars and assets in that room- nope- we’ll be looking around that room to hold the hand of our loved ones that mean something to us. We’ll be thinking about our great memories, the time we laughed walking on the beach and felt like kids again, we’ll be reminiscing about the way someone looked at us, made us feel and took our breath away. We’ll be checking for the faces of our children that we’re proud of. And I understand the motivation of working hard to leave something for your kids and kids kids- totally understandable but don’t sacrifice your life you have now for it- you matter too! So when you’re grinding and over working yourself into a shorter life expectancy- just try to maintain some balance so you’ll have no regrets in those final moments. You don’t have to sacrifice one for the other. And that’s a fact! #ThatIsAll #Live #Love #Laugh #Enjoy #Relationships #NoRegrets #ItsNeverTooLateToStartLiving #FindTheBalance #BeHappy #ItsAChoice #YouDeserveIt #DontBlockYourHappiness #DontRunFromIt #SmellTheRoses
From our CCTV last weekend. This is how someone doing all the wrong things can get a good dog in a lot of trouble. The shopping center across the street has a few drunks hanging around at at all times. The man in this video is a harmless and frequently naps in that spot, the dog has been loose before and it’s friendly but poorly trained and still jumps on people. Here the sleeping drunk gets startled and jumps up to run from the vicious pit bull. The pit is wagging its tail furiously and actively trying to avoid contact while playing with the weird man who jumps around. You can see the dog run when I yell at it, and after I leave the camera it actually begins to mind. It did not bite growl or snap at him. It did bark excitedly like 1-1.5 year old puppies will. The man has some skinned palms, and the dog ran home after I made it walk with me to the street it lives on. It’s up to you to protect your dog from Idiots, so something like this doesnt end up with the dog getting put down. #sillypuppy #trainyourdog #fixyourfence #sweetpitbull #pitbull #hesjustplayin #peoplesuck #dontrunfromit #idiots
In the core of a big planet,
Trapped underneath layers of bedrock,
Lies the light of the person I want to be. Depression brings falsified regression and self oppression. You feel as you are always multiplying a number by 0. “You are a hero” turns into “you are a weirdo”. complex ozone layer on this planet seems to turn positivity into negativity as a compliment, kindness, or genuine action enters it.
you fight depression by “living in the moment”
easier said than done
Just “smile and have fun”
You can’t run from the cloud.
But you can find strength to jump on it and ride it around. Don’t let the brain chemistry imbalance eat up your heart and smear your reality, The hell is ultimately all within internally even if it appears externally!🕉 #stacking #balance #flagstaff #hiking #processing #physics
Im case you were wondering why you get stepped in so much and why you have friction while you serve the house. It’s such an honor to work in the kitchen in stead of wanting to sit and eat. #TrueMinistryWillCauseFriction #DontRunFromIt
