You just never know. . .

Tuesday Treadmill Treats

 

You just never know. ..

 

Last night as I was rushing from my 3rd job to try to get something to eat at one of my favorite jamerican restaurants I got in my car. There wasn’t a car next to me but as I was backing out I hit something, it was a car next to me who was pulling in at the same time.

 

Oh crap I thought, I don’t have time for this I can’t believe this happened. I got out of the car and I apologized, I didn’t see anyone there as I was backing out I told her.

Her car had a big scape along the side and my front side panel had one as well.

 

I said I guess I’m not going to make it to church now, she said me either. I asked which Church and yup you guessed it…it was The Faith Center, my church.

 

We both started laughing, we were calm and didn’t get mad, we spoke of accidents and how it can happen. As we were waiting for the police to come I asked how long she had been going there, she told me 9 years. I told her I was part of the singles ministry and had been there 3 years. She said she never joined or participated in anything as she felt the church was too big but lately after Bishop sermon about not just going to church being part of a church, she had been thinking about it.

 

I told her how much fun we have in the singles ministry and how I am waiting on the prison ministry as they were getting a program together for young girls in need. I spoke of all the wonderful people who I work with in our other ministries and how much good they do.

 

We talked for a while and after the police exchanged all of our information she turned and said to me

“God has a plan for everything and I believe this was part of his plan, who know this would happen and that you touched my heart to want to come and help in ministry, there are no accidents where God is concerned, I am sorry this happened but I am so glad I met you.” We hugged and promised to keep in touch, I told her to call me and I will introduce her to the different ministries we have.

 

I know it could have been another way, I could have gotten mad, she could have came at me, it could have ended bad but we both realized nothing changes when that happens, accidents happen and sometimes accidents happen for a reason…if your open to hear the message.

 

So today my friends remember, not everything is as it seems even in the unlikeliest events God is working for your good.

We are so busy we forget what’s most important

Treadmill Treats Monday Message

 

We are so busy we forget the most important things.

 

In today’s fast pace world, we are always on the go, we multi task, we have a million things on our minds.

We see what the media puts out there that we “must have” Reailty  celebrities have become our idols, we need the biggest houses, designer purses, the most expensive watches, we are all running around trying to keep up with the jones.

 

We are trying to get so much stuff…things we think we need…

Yet we don’t see the important things like giving God thanks each and every day and not just on Thanksgiving. A holiday that man tells us to give thanks on. What is wrong with today’s society that we need specific holidays to get us to do things, we should be doing all year long?

 

Bishop spoke of a story yesterday where a husband and wife who were married for 50 years went to a event, they were asked to write a list of all the things they thought they did for the other person that was important.

The husband wrote and wrote and the wife sat there, at the end of the exercise they were asked to exchange papers. When the husband looked at his wife’s paper it was blank, he said “Why is your paper blank?  Look at all I’ve done for you…I bought you houses, look at the beautiful car you drive, I gave you children, I give you all you ask for…jewelry, clothes, designer purses and shoes…how can your list be empty?”

 

She replied quietly “I didn’t have you, yes, you gave me all of these things but I didn’t have you”

 

See what he thought was important to her, the stuff, the things he provided wasn’t important at all.

All she wanted was his time, to be with her and the children, that meant the most to her.

 

We all make lists, in our minds of all we do. We go to church so many days a month, we say we’re Christians, we tell everyone.

We volunteer, we’re clergy people, we think we are doing all the right things…look, look at our lists, we tell God. We think we are good but what’s on God’s list?

 

Is God’s list for you blank? What does he deem important? How many cars we have? How big of a house we have? How many designer shoes and purses we have? No his list is completely different from ours. He wants your heart and your soul, he wants your undivided attention, he wants to be number one in your life, he wants your undying faith in him.

 

That is what is important to him…not what we think is important.

 

Don’t just give lip service about being a Christian, yes you come to church but you have a cold, hard heart. Your a “Christian” but you won’t help another in need. You don’t get involved in the house of God, giving of your time when needed but you have time to go to the football games…what is most important?

What does your list say and what does God’s list say?

 

So today my friends, remember what you think is important, may not be what is important to God.

Stop your crazy lives, getting, acquiring, it’s all about me world and remember what is truly important because at the end, when you go to meet your maker will your lists be the same?

Paying it forward

Tgif Treadmill Treats

 

Paying it forward

 

The other day I wrote a blog about how my church didn’t meet our goal of trying to feed 2000 families this year for the Thanksgiving season.

 

One of my dear friends called me up yesterday after reading my blog and said he wanted to donate 500.00 to my church.

 

I wanted to cry, he doesn’t attend our church, in fact he doesn’t even live in this state. He said my blog touched him, he thought about the people that might not be able to have a thanksgiving dinner this year, if it was not for our church and this event.

 

I started to say he couldn’t do this but this last week taught me to not block the blessings and this was going to be a huge blessing to many families.

 

We all need to pay it forward, we need to step out of our all about me world and think of others needs.

 

I remember when a friend had lost her job and I helped out with groceries, she then blessed me later on with tickets to a event I couldn’t afford to attend.

 

I use to help a friend out doing her and her families hair for free when things got tight for them, she blessed me years later with her husbands labor on my new home.

 

I heard God speak to me and tell me to give my last 100.00 for groceries to a friend in need, okay I  fought this one, until I said if I turn around and she’s the first one I see, I will… well you guessed it she was and I did. The next day I got 3 new clients, grocery money and more!

 

I gave my air conditioning money to a friend in need never to see her or my money again, but to be blessed months later by my neighbor who knew my struggles.

 

I never gave thinking what am I going to get in return, I gave because I saw a need and I could help, it made me feel good that I could help be a blessing to others.

 

See how this works,you give out of a pure heart, you pay it forward and you in return get blessed. Hopefully that person you blessed will bless someone else in need later on.

 

If everyone would do a kind deed for someone and that that someone did a kind deed for the next person and so on and so on and so on….imagine what a great place this would be. It would be a world filled with compassion and love.

 

It’s not about helping out “your own” it’s about helping out another human being that’s in need, simple as that.

 

So today my friends let’s get together this holiday season and do what my dear friend did, show love and compassion to people he didn’t even know, just because it’s the right thing to do.

Open your hearts up and pay it foward…

 

Remember there before the grace of God goes I…

It could have been another way….

 

If you would like to help our church out you can go to the link below…we also have a weekly food bank that we sponsor every week called Dare to care

 

Or give to your church or neighborhood, believe me there are plenty of places you can find.

Your never too old to learn a lesson

Thursday Treadmill Treats

 

Your never to old to learn a lesson

 

I have a friend of mine who is just a few years older then me, she went back to school after her kids were grown. She has a rocking body as she exercises every day, she started yoga late in life and is now like gumby.

 

She left a verbally abusive marriage after thirty five years, while I was still in mine, she gave me hope, she was my hero!

 

I remember helping her move into her new apartment, she didn’t have much but I had never saw her look so happy. She was free, she was doing this on her terms…oh, how I wanted to be her.

 

But some people dont learn the lessons God gives them and so they repeat them again and again, she was one of them.

 

She soon found another man, who was not just as bad as her ex husband,but worse. When I tried to explain to her, her self worth, that she deserved so much more, I told her to look at all she has been through to get her to this point, why would she go backwards? Why would be unhappy when she had just found happiness? Why would she go back into a relationship that made her feel horrible yet again?

 

She told me that she’s too old, that she was afraid she would never find love again, that this is the way it was ,that she couldn’t go through being single  again, she said she didn’t have the strength to break away this time, that she was afraid and so she stayed.

 

I didn’t know what to say…nothing I said made a difference. I knew and I swore if I ever got out of my situation I would never go back, I would take happiness alone then been misrable with someone else again.

My philosophy is you are never go old to learn a lesson, you are never too old to try something new or to change something.

 

I write this blog to inspire people, to show you that you have to change sometimes, that you must overcome the fear that keeps you stuck. You must want to learn, to try something new, you need to take control and say yes I can do this! It is that either you change or you will stay stagnate and die.

 

I read recently the list of things people wished for on their death beds, the number one thing it spoke of was that people weren’t present in their own lives!

 

That they wished they tried new things, loved more, they wished they weren’t so afraid of change and did the things they truly wanted to do and made them happy. They wished they spent more time with their loved ones, were more involved in their kids lives, lived more, lived big.

 

Did they wish for more money? A bigger house? A horrible relationship?  No, they all wished for change…change to be able to do it all again, differently. Wow that says alot doesn’t it?

 

My Bishops message last night was that even if you went through a bad season, a bad job, a bad marriage, it was all for a reason, it was all for a lesson.

It was so that you will know the difference when a great job comes along, so that when you do meet a great man that you know the difference and appreciate what you now have.

 

I believe in change, I believe anything is possible. If through human eyes you see my dream of being a New York Times bestselling author and a motivational speaker at this stage of my game, you might think I am out of my mind.

I started my whole live over at forty eight, including a new career, a new life, a new home. It seemed crazy that I wanted to do a triathlon, at that age when I sucked at swimming and hated to run.

Yes, it all looked crazy but I know you are never to old.

I know I have an unwavering, blind faith that it is going to happen

and guess what? It did!

I even placed 3rd in my age group in my first triathlon and the other stuff? Oh yeah…it’s coming…

 

There is no doubt in my mind that all these things and all the things that I cant even imagine will happen to me! Because I believe!

 

So today my friends, believe you can do anything and you can do it  too. Don’t settle, don’t stay because you don’t think you can get better or do better, your never to old to learn the lessons. Your never too old to change.

It’s a all about me, world

Hump day Treadmill Treats

 

It’s a all about me, world

 

I have to tell you how shocked I have been lately. People are all about themselves, they have no time, no patience or no compassion for others.

I even see this in my own church, oh yes I am going there…

This is the giving season where we all should be more caring about our fellow human beings yet it seems to be all about me for most people.

 

Once a year we ask our members of our church to come for our annual Church clean up day, we clean inside, wash windows, put down new mulch and get the church ready for the holiday season. We have 10,000 members, yes you read that right, and that day guess how many came to help? Don’t bother you’ll never believe if I tell you.

 

Maybe 100…yup that’s it. Where is the other 9,900 members saying they love one another? Obviously sleeping in…

 

The last few weeks we been telling members that our annual feed the community thanksgiving drive is coming up, we asked for 12.00 from each member to buy turkeys and groceries.

 

Last year we fed 1000 families, we gave them 2 bags of groceries and a turkey. People that would otherwise not have a thanksgiving dinner, we provided one. This is my 4th year volunteering and every year, I cry at the heartwarming thanks we get from people, especially the elderly.

 

Well last night my Bishop said we didn’t have enough money to reach our goal of 2000 families this year because we didn’t get the 12.00 from everyone like we asked.

 

Ok, I am mad…how many people go to Starbucks everyday at 5.00 for a cup of their nasty coffee?  Please, but you don’t have 12.00…how many people buy fast food everyday for lunch but can’t give 12.00? Get real because I am real right now, people should be ashamed of themselves.

 

If not any other time of the year, is this the time of year for good will towards others? And yet people go about their, it’s all about me lives.

 

Are we so disenchantment about the world we can’t step out of our own way to see that we have homeless in this world, we have hundreds of thousands of hungry people that go to bed regularly with empty stomachs. Where is our compassion? Where is our love?

 

I don’t remember a time in my life I didn’t give back, that I didn’t reach out to someone in need, I couldn’t sleep at night knowing I could have helped someone and chose not to.

 

I volunteered at a rape crisis center because I knew what it felt like to be in their circumstances. I volunteered at homeless shelters because I couldn’t imagine what it would feel like to be homeless.

I volunteer at my church for anything and everything because I am so grateful of how they opened their arms and took me in, how God and my Bishop feed me the word that has made me whole again.

 

I want to help in anyway possible because I am a human being and there before the grace of God goes I… Yes, that could have been me…at any time anyone of us could be homeless, hungry, without hope, thinking no one cares about them, that no one loves them…

 

I am going to make it my mission to let them know I care, I love them just because we live on the same planet, we breathe the same air, because there is no greater thing than love and it costs nothing to give.

 

So today my friends, think about what you are doing for others or are you too living in a it’s all about me world.

 

This season when the world seems to be going crazy, help out, show the world that love is the most powerful gift there is.

You will never regret it.

 

If you would like to help out our church you can go to http://Www.thefaithcenterint.org

 

To give or go to your church or your community and give but give…of yourself, your time, your money, your love….

Remember there before the grace of God goes I….. it could have been another way….

Forget the dishes. …

Tuesday Treadmill Treats

 

Forget the dishes…

 

I was speaking to someone recently and they asked if worked all the time, did I ever have fun? I do have three jobs, plus my girls and this blog that I write every day and the six sites I post it on. I am constantly promoting the book and the blog and always looking for where I can make my next dollar…what can I say, I am a hustler.

 

But as I told him, I play as hard as I work, when the weekend comes, work is gone and I am all about the play. I am out with friends, busy with Church activities, at the beach, bike riding, bbq’s, hanging with my girls chilling, it’s all about the play.

 

I remember years ago when my girls were young and I was a nut about the house being clean and everything just right.

I was so regimented, it had to be just so, cant do this, it’s not the day for that…it was really bad.

 

One day I was watching Oprah and she asked this mother who was just like me, if she thought her kids were going to remember the house being clean or if they went to the beach on a Tuesday? If their barbies were straight in a line or if they ran around the house having pillow fights?

 

That was my Oprah light bulb moment…No, I wanted my girls to remember how much fun we had, how on a spur of the moment if they wanted to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on the beach for dinner and there was dirty dishes in the sink, we were going, the hell with the dishes.

 

That day changed my life forever, I wanted my girls to remember all the fun we had not how regimented their mom was.

I was determined to give my girls, these spur of the moment memories. To show them, they were more important to me than how clean my house was.

 

Friends tell me all the time that I am always here, doing this or that…Hello life is too short…way to short, I am sure as hell not going to be laying on my death bed one day, saying I should have, could have… but my clean house, my regimented life came first.

 

No one says I wish I made more money as their dying, no they say how they wished they spent more time with their loved ones, they wished they had more fun, seen more places, made more memories. They realized too late what was important.

 

No, I am living this life large, I am going to drop everything to spend time with a friend, an unexpected visit, a pair of concert tickets last minute, I am there…just call, the wash and the dishes will be there when I get back, hell there be there when I’m dead…it’s all good.

 

So today my friends, remember life is too short, live as hard as you work. Leave memories for your kids that they can treasure for a lifetime, enjoy your family, your friends, your life…the dishes will always be there…

There is nothing my God can’t do. . .

Treadmill Treats Monday Message

 

There is nothing my God can’t do…

 

If you follow my blog you know I have crazy faith, you know I believe nothing is impossible if you believe.

 

This year has been a crazy year for me, I’ve had some incredible blessings and went through some wicked storms, yet through it all I still gave praise, I still held on to my hope and faith.

 

This year started out with a gift from God, my home.

I got a sign from the preacher who said I would get a home for 150,000, unheard of in my neighborhood… I shouldn’t been approved, yet I was… I lost 3 deals that were 30,000 more, yet he made it come to pass that I got this home at the 150,000 price, I did a total remodel in 30 days and under 30,000 also unheard of.

 

As soon as I closed on my home, I quit a job I hated, a job that everyday I cried as I was driving to, I walked out on faith to do my own business full time, knowing full well I just took on this mortgage but again I have crazy faith and again God took care of my every need.

 

Just as I thought things were going back on track all hell broke loose.

I had all kinds of friends walk away from me, taking my heart with them, I had others call me out to try to make me look bad, making others pick sides. I prayed asking for the lessons I obviously needed to learn.

 

I found a lost love olny to realize that history repeats it self even 30 years later. I was brokenhearted yet again.

I had financial setbacks too, I was informed that all of my free airline trips got retroactive and I owed 300.00 to my best friend for the trips.

 

It was far from over as my roof started leaking, my ex was taking me back to court, I needed attorney fee’s, my business got so slow and I was scrambling to meet ends.

 

My daughter’s seemed to go off the deep end and to top it off I needed a new air conditioning unit.

 

A friend in need asked to borrow some money so I gave her my air conditioning money for a specific amount of time, never to see her or my money again.

 

This was a gut punch that knocked me to my knees, I should have been cursing God, I should have lost faith, didn’t I go through enough in my life? I could have thrown a long, well deserved pity party but instead my bowed my head and I prayed, I prayed for the lessons I needed to learn, I prayed for the people who did me wrong, I prayed and praised God for all the other blessings I had and I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that he would right the wrongs, he would provide for me.

 

I knew there were big things coming to pass and I needed to stand firm in my beliefs and…. let me tell you there is nothing that I love more, then telling you how good my God is!

 

The day after I had to give my attorney 250.00,  I went to the mail box to find a check for…yup… you guessed it 250.00 for some class action suit… yeah right. It was from God…

 

A week later I got another check for 175.00, I had no idea for what, then a dear friend sent me some money for my air and I got 5 new clients in one week who says prayer doesn’t work?

 

I know when God gave me this home, he situated me next to a man of God, Frank, my guardian angel who right from the beginning has been here for me, being my friend and helping me realize that there are some really great people in this world even when I almost gave up hope.

 

This weekend he blessed me with the 1500.00 for my air conditioning that I had lent and never got back from my “best friend, My wifey”

 

He told me not to be prideful, when I said I couldn’t accept it..same lesson my Bishop spoke of last week, same lesson my friend Carmen gave me when she blessed me with the ticket to the brunch that I couldn’t afford to go to…. same lessons….don’t block the blessings….

 

He said “You are a good person with a pure heart and God sees all you do for others…now let me do for you”

 

I did the ugly cry…I am so grateful and so filled with joy that someone would do this for me…I am speechless…

 

There was never a doubt that God wouldn’t come through for me…. I am a living testimony of what can happen when you have faith and believe!

 

So today my friends, I stand here with my hands raised, thanking God for always being here and I stand here telling you that no matter how many times you get knocked down, no matter how many betrayals you went through, how bad it seems, when you don’t think you can go through the storm…. I am here to tell you….you can….Stand in your faith, believe nothing is impossible, know that the blessings come after the storm…the sun will come out tomorrow….

Money vs happiness which do you pick?

Tgif Treadmill Treats

 

Money vs happiness, which do you pick?

 

A while ago my best friend came down here for a job interview and the question in her mind that she left with, was about the money they were offering her here.

 

Now I know money is important in our lives but how important? What if its about the quality of life versus the money?

 

Would you go for more money if your not happy where you are? If you just went to work day after day and came home, never to enjoy all the money your making, does that make it a great life?

 

What if you made less but you had friends, you did things, you got out, met new people, enjoyed your life, is that not worth more than the extra money?

 

We only have one life and most of us (women) give up half of our life to our families, to our children, to meet their needs, to make sure they are taken care of, we put our needs on the back burners but now they are grown and they have their own lives, that they are going on with.

 

We are entitled to have a incrediable life, that is worth living but as I know first hand its not all about the money, money does not buy happiness, it fills a never ending hole but it doesn’t fill your soul.

 

You need to fill your soul with what makes you happy, it might be friends, volunteering, the beach, but it has nothing to do with money or things, I can assure you of that!

 

I have many clients that have so much “stuff” clothes with tags, through out their closets, hundreds of shoes, designer purses and clothes, big houses, fancy cars but at night they are alone and lonely, they hurt inside so bad they cry themselves to sleep, they have no one there for them, no real friends, no life but hey they have all that “stuff” to fill them up.

I was one of them, I had the big life, yet all the stuff couldn’t fill the hurt in my heart.

 

Is that the life you want? Filled with things that are meaningless or a life filled with joy ?

 

So today my friends, remember the choice is yours, remember that  money does not buy happiness, but if you live your purpose driven life, you will be taken care for your real needs. You life will be filled with love, peace and joy that is truly priceless.

Pity party table for one

 Thursday Treadmill Treats

 

Pity party table for one

 

Yes, I write an inspirational blog. Yes, for the most part I am the most positive person you will ever meet. Yes, I always look at the bright side and try to see the best in people.

 

There are some days that my human side comes out and as much as I try, I can’t help it. So every once in a while I throw a pity party with a table for one.

 

They say when big things are about to happen, stuff starts to go crazy in your life and it’s true as I am working on promoting this book and my YouTube channel, working all kinds of crazy hours, trying to work 3 jobs and writing this blog. All kinds of other things are going nuts, clients canceling, “friends ” stepping back because we don’t see eye to eye, no love life in sight, overwhelming pressure in my personal and professional life, there are some days I can’t handle all that’s going on and I break down.

 

I’ve learned it’s okay to throw yourself a party, to cry, to drink, to yell if you have to, I am human and I cannot be superwoman 365, as much as I would like to.

 

So when I get like this I watch sappy movies (great watch love movies about a love life you don’t have, good one! ) 

 

I am still Tinker bell and I still believe in happily ever after even if I am alone. I let it all out and then I cry myself to sleep. In the morning I put my big girl panties on and I am okay.

 

Everything looks better in the light. (Okay maybe not everything if it was along night of drinking in the club and you wake up next to….oh wait, flashback from years ago, wrong topic sorry)

Oh, please your all laughing because you’ve been there, done that!

 

Where was I ? Yes, I put on my big girl panties and I keep going, new day, new attitude, it will be a better day today. Some days you have to do it one day at a time, one hour at a time, that’s okay just get through it, it will be better.

 

So today my friends remember it’s okay to have a pity party, have some whine and cheese, a sappy movie and a good cry tomorrow is another day… the sun will shine and it will be okay, you got this…you got this…

 

*Disclaimer * today’s message was for me but if you got anything out of it, bonus plan!! 

LAUGH life is too short!!

Stinking thinking

Tuesday  Treadmill Treats

Stinking thinking

 

I am convinced that most people’s situation in life is based in their stinking thinking.

 

Yes, things will happen in your life that will suck, plain and simple but it is how you look at them, how you deal with them and what you say that will change your outcome.

 

If you walk around and say “Oh poor me, what else can go wrong, nothing good ever happens to me, see this always happens”

Yes, we all know people like this, hell this could be describing you right now, be honest.

 

You know what? Your right nothing good will come to you, yes, other crappy things will happen because what you put out there will come back to you!

Hello! The law of attraction, The Secret, yes even in the bible, it said this.

 

I just finished my book (look for it soon on the New York times bestseller list, see how this works?) While I was editing it I was crying, I had some horrible, dark, knock you to your knees times in my life, yet I’ve always  had a positive attitude.

 

I always considered myself a survivor not a victim,

I always picked myself up, dusted myself off and went on, not carrying hatred or anger, trying to learn a lesson from those dark times and trying to share with others mine and my Aunt Nancy’s favorite quote. “This too shall pass”

 

So here are 3 critical areas that you must invest in to change your life:

 

1-Your mind-

 

You need to get rid of those why me, poor me, this always happens to me attitude. Kick that thinking to the curb.

 

2-Your attitude –

 

Some of you have such bad attitudes, people don’t even want to be around you, your mean, your negative, you think your the only one things happen to. Surprise your not, get over it.

 

3 – Your responses-

 

Yes, how do you respond when things happen? Are you quick to yell and scream? Quick to judge or blame? Change it, speak what you want to happen, find a lesson, look for the positive. Take a different spin on things.

 

So today my friends, remember you have the power, what you think, what you put out there, what you speak.. its all in your power and only you can change that.

 

“When trouble comes your way consider it an opportunity for great joy”

 

“Be the change you want to see”

 

“And just when the caterpillar thought his life was over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
