The two best days of your life

The two best days of your life

 

This week I wrote alot about your purpose and finding your purpose. I wrote about change and how it’s up to you to change your life and that only you can do it.

 

I wrote about a quote I love  from Albert Einstein that says “The two most important days in your life is the day you were born and the day you realize why?”

 

When you know your calling it’s a magical day, you feel free, like you just opened up this amazing gift and it’s yours.

 

Yesterday I wrote about making changes in your life, today, I am telling you to chase your dreams, if you know me, you know this blog is not just for you all, its for me as well. Each time I write it, it reinforces what I believe in, I am putting out my “intention” to the universe.

 

Everything I write about, I have gone through or have tried myself, there is nothing here that says do as I say not as I do. No, I own my life and yes, I know how hard it is sometimes because I’ve been there and I think that is why my readers can relate to my stories.

 

This has been a long hard journey for me to find me and what my dreams are but I have gotten it and I have been working on it since I went to the Louise Hays “I can do it conference”  a few years back.(see it worked!)

 

See as far back as I can remember I loved to write, poems, short stories, I had a journal since as I started writing as a young child.

 

When I found the blogging sites, I was thrilled! I could write every day. For years I have wanted to write a book but you know how it is, life gets in the way… until I realized that I went through all I did for a purpose, so that I can shine the light on a subject that has been kept in the dark due to shame and guilt.

 

I knew I had to admit how  a strong, independent women gave her power away to a man? What made me do it? How did I keep that secret and put on a facade each and every day while I was dying inside? How no one realizes what is going on behind closed doors not friends,

co-workers, not even family.

 

I had to write about how  when I finally found my voice, how everyone blamed me because he is “too perfect” to do that, they said I must be lying so they dropped me. This story is about the fight and my journey to get back to me, this is what my story is really about.

 

This is why I went through this and what I was born to do, so that this book might be able to help someone, inspire them to find their inner beauty again, their soul, their self worth. I hope my story will give someone  that courage to change their lives.

 

So today my friends, find your purpose, change your life, believe in your dreams, this is my dream and yes, I am chasing it even at my age because your never too old to learn or to change. So ask yourself, what were you born to do? What is your purpose? Make today the second best day of your life!

It’s never to late to change

Thursday Treadmill Treats

 

It’s never to late to change

 

Yesterday I wrote about how I use to be a liar and how I decided when I left my marriage that I would never do that again. I decided I would change my ways and I did, did it matter how old I was? No, did it matter I had been doing it for years? No, all that matter was I wanted to change and I took the steps to do it.

 

I am a huge believer in you can do anything at any age, you can change anything in your life, its never to late!

 

I was lucky enough to have a wonderful role model, my mom. She got cancer at 45 and while she was going through it, she decided to go back to school. She had to drop out of school at 15 to support herself and her mother and never graduated. She got her Ged, then she went to college and after she graduated with an associates degree, she then went to school to get her real estate brokers license and opened up her own company.

 

She had been a waitress all her life and while she got sick she just decided to change it all. She was 45 when she started and almost 50 when she finished, she did all of this while fighting cancer. She made a decision to change and she did, she was and always will be, my hero.

 

So I’ve lived my life the same way she lived hers, never afraid of change, knowing that age is just a number.

 

I jumped out of a plane at 41, zipped lined at 45, ran a marathon at 46, changed my career, walked out in faith and started my own business at 47.

I left a horrible 24 year marriage and started over with nothing at 48, I did a triathlon at 49! (And I sucked at swimming and hated running!)

 

I did it all and I have never looked back, its up to you and how bad do you want it, what is holding you back?

 

You! that’s it! Do you drink too much? Are you still acting like your 21 when your 51? Do you want a relationship yet when one presents it self you push it away?

Are you in a horrible marriage and staying because your afraid?

 

There are a million reasons why you keep doing what your doing but not one of those is that you truly want to change, because if you did, you could and you would.

 

Do you look at others and think “I could never do that? I couldn’t leave my big cushy life, I like to drink and party, I could never find a great person like that, she’s just lucky”

 

Luck has nothing to do with it!! I got up, I said enough is enough! I was sick and tired of being sick and tired!

And I made a move to change it!

 

Fear is your biggest obstacle! That’s it, nothing else! Overcome that and you can do anything!

 

So today my friends, if you want to change, truly want to change, all you have to do is believe that you can, have faith and you will. Don’t wish, don’t hope, do something to make it happen, start today, make a change, don’t worry about your age, its never to late to change.

Why lie ?

Hump day Treadmill Treats

 

Why lie?

 

Today as I was talking to my daughter she told me some things her father had said about our recent court case.

 

I had to laugh that he was lying while he was saying,

I was lying.

Here’s the thing I was an expert liar while I was married to him, shocking that I would admit that huh? Yes, we hate to admit our flaws, we rather die than admit were not perfect.

 

I am so not perfect!

Sorry I tell it all, the good, the bad and the really ugly. Being not perfect, I have done some really crappie things including lying.

 

I lied about being happy in my marriage.

(I was misrable )

 

I lied about us being the “perfect” family

(We were falling apart and so disfunctional)

 

I lied about seeing my friends.

(he hated all my friends)

 

I lied about wanting to make the marriage work.

(All I wanted was to get out but I was too afraid)

 

Yes, I lied about everything and hated myself for it!

The day I decided to leave the marriage was I day I vowed I would never lie again.

 

I was free and freedom to me meant never having to lie to try to please someone, to be myself warts and all. To know my self worth and know that I cannot be everything to everyone.

 

I write this blog every day,

5 days a week, four weeks a month, 12 months a year for the last 4 years. There is nothing I have not put out there.

 

I’ve told you my great moments, I’ve told you when I was lied to and cheated on by Mr. Con Artist, I poured my heart out, I shared my heartbreaks and disappointments, I told you time and time again when I fell on my face.

 

I have shared my highs and lows, I opened myself up to the world and criticism from strangers.There is nothing I won’t share and because of that there is no reason for me to lie.

 

So when I hear this from my daughter I think at least I am growing, I am owning what I did and who I was back then…yes, I was a liar but I am a different person now and if you can’t see that, if you can’t see how much work I put into changing to this person I am today…well that’s your problem, if you think a leopard can’t change his spots, that no one is capable of change, that’s on you…

 

Maybe you need to take a long hard look in the mirror…maybe your incapable of change…maybe you will never grow or change…maybe just maybe it’s you..

 

So today my friends, own what you did, stand tall in the mistakes you’ve made, because through the failures and heartbreaks, it made you to the person you are today.

As I always say in the end of every blog ” Be the change you want to see”

 

“Be the change you want to see”

 

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

Finding our purpose

Tuesday Treadmill Treats

 

Finding our purpose

 

Yesterday I wrote about a class I took about finding your purpose and it amazing that so many other people don’t know theirs as well.

 

I didn’t know mine until a few years ago, I knew I loved to write, I’ve been writing since I was a little girl. I wrote poems, songs, short stories and kept a journal for as long as I can remember. It was just a part of me, I wrote when I was happy, I wrote when I was sad, I wrote everything I did done, every feeling, every emotion.

I was always positive, I could always make people open up to me, I have the gift of gab, this is who I am.

 

So I guess I should have known that this was my gift but then here comes life, you got bills to pay and kids to raise, other people’s dreams to fulfill and writing didn’t pay the bills so you move into something else.

 

You do what you have to do to get by, you work in a job you hate because you make alot of money, because you have a title, because it’s someone else’s dream for you, someone else’s expectation from you.

So your purpose takes a back seat, your God given gift gets pushed back into the closet because you are afraid.

 

What was amazing that this weekend I was with 7 women who were all there searching for their purpose.

All of these women were smart, beautiful and successful in their own right. Some were business owners, some were entrepreneurs, some were educators yet we were all here searching for our true calling, our purpose.

 

During the weekend it was a gift to see these women realize their purpose, their whole demeanor changed as they came into their true selves.

One of the questions Dee asked us was if you could do something just because you loved it and not had to worry about the money what would it be?

 

That was a powerful question, I knew right away, it was writing, I remember when I wrote my book,

I would be writing for hours. I would forgot to eat, the world did not exist while I was in my zone.

 

Another question was if you had all the money in the world, what would you do with your time?

Again for me it was writing…and the other women realized their purpose as well through these simply questions.

 

Sometimes we are afraid, fear is your worst enemy, you are your worst enemy. Your self doubt, your constantly telling yourself you can’t do this or that, your listening to other people, who by the way can see your purpose and are afraid of it.

 

You can’t worry about what others will say…you have one life, it’s your life and you need to live it. You need to take control, step up, own it and then do something about getting to where you need to be.

 

I am big on your never to old to learn, take classes,  learn about your passion and how others are making it work for them, talk to people in the field you want to move into, volunteer if you have to in order to learn, read and research, put in the work and the doors will open.

God didn’t give you this gift to not help you with it, once you realize what is your purpose and you do the work, it will come.

 

So today my friends, ask yourself what is my purpose? Why am I here?

What is the bigger picture of life?

Then don’t be afraid of the answers, don’t be afraid to chase your dream, don’t be afraid to stand in your purpose.

Whats in your DNA and are you living your purpose?

Treadmill Treats Monday Message

 

What’s in your DNA and are you living your purpose?

 

I am always telling you that you are never too old to learn something new or change something in your life.

 

And yes, I do practice what I preach, so this weekend I had the opportunity to take a class by a one of South Florida’s best Keynote speakers and motivational life coaches,

Dee Thompson.

 

The class was called

What’s in your DNA and are you living your purpose?

 

It focused on what’s your purpose here on earth and  are you doing it?

If you read my blog you know I always speak about living in your purpose, you know about my transformation moment stepping out on faith from a job I hated to building this business that I love to do.

 

But these last few years as I searched inside of my self I realized my gift from God was my writing and the ability to touch others.

Even still I needed conformation and so I decided to take this class and see if I was right and what steps to do if I was, to get to the next level.

 

She started by asking alot of thought provoking questions, deep questions that made all of us do of alot of soul searching.

We had to be completely open and honest with ourselves and the others in the class.

 

It was an eye opening experience for all of us, we learned things about ourselves we never knew or maybe never admitted even to ourselves.

 

By the end of the first day I bonded with these other women on a deep spiritual level and I knew beyond a doubt that yes, writing and speaking was indeed my calling, my purpose.

 

I couldn’t wait to go back the second day, we all arrived early as we wanted to know how to get to our purpose.

 

Being a life coach and motivational trainer for the last 17 years, Dee knows what it takes to get to the top and how to help others follow their dreams. She has mentor many others and she is constantly giving back to her community so we all knew that we were in for a another special day.

 

We were not disappointed, she gave us business ideas, social media tips, she  trained us to believe in ourselves. She instilled faith in us, she critique our improvements and let us shine in our strengths. She made us overcome our fears and self doubt, her faith in our purpose gave us the strength to go out to pursue our dreams.

 

By Sunday night we were all transformed, we were all different from the day before. We now knew our purpose and how we were going to achieve it.

 

It’s amazing when you get feedback on something you thought might be true, to actually knowing it is true.

 

There was this one exercise that we all wrote on index cards what we thought the other women’s strengths were and their areas of improvements, it was all anonymous so we were free to write our true thoughts.

 

Dee then read them back to the class. I was shocked when everyone said I am a storyteller, that I am motivational and inspiring, that speaking to them from the podium was natural and it was what I am meant to do. That they could see me on a stage in from of thousands of people.

 

Let’s be honest and Lord knows I am, we all think we are great, sometimes we are greater in our own head than we actually are.

Our friends and family might blow smoke up our butts about how good they think we are but all of that doesn’t mean you are.

 

Look at when American Idol contestants say “Well all my family said I was good” and now your on the reject cuts in the beginning that we are all laughing at, thinking wtf?

Your all laughing because you know it’s true.

 

So yes, I thought I wrote good, my family and friends said I could write and that I could make it as motivational speaker but that and a token will get you on a Ny subway, it didn’t add up to much. It isn’t until you hear it from others, teachers, strangers that you start to believe “Hey maybe I got something here, maybe I was right, I could do this”

 

It’s funny the reason I took this class is because my new years resolutions was to be present in my purpose….funny her key phase is “Purpose never dies” and this class was finding your purpose. See everything happens for a reason, this year I vowed to work on my purpose and I am off to a great start. I am not just sitting around waiting for it to fall in my lap, intention that was one of Dee’s favorite words, so I am doing everything with intention.

 

I will take other speaking classes, try to network with others to try to get more speaking engagements, I will work at promoting my “brand” as Dee calls it.

I will be actively involved in pursuing this dream now, of course I will continue to have my “sick faith” but this has given me the confidence to know it’s what I was born to do.

 

“The two most important days in your life. The day you were born and the day you find out why” Mark Twain

 

I want to thank Dee, thank you for being an incredible teacher, thank you for being my mentor but most of all thank you for being my friend.

Its a shame to still be bitter and angry

 Tgif Treadmill Treats 

 

It’s a shame to still be bitter and angry 

 

Yesterday I went back to court with my ex, as we were leaving he turned and said some really mean and hateful things to me.This shouldn’t come as surprise as he said things like that to me during our whole marriage.

 

But I am a different person now, in a different place, we haven’t been together in four years, yes I get we were in court together but I was still taken back by the anger and hatred he still had towards me. 

 

I stood there, shook my head and I smirked then I  said “Not going there” and I  turned and walked away. 

 

It was at that moment I truly felt sorry for him, sorry you ask? Sorry why, he was horrible to you?

 

I felt sorry that he was such an anger, bitter, hateful  little man, that after all this time he was still so filled with bitterness that it consumed him. 

 

I should be the one filled with hatred for all the years he called me names, put me down, broke my heart over and over again. I should be bitter that he’s still living the same lifestyle and I got close to nothing when I left. I should be angry that I have to force him to pay for his own children, that he pays more for his car a month then for his kids. 

 

But I gave that up, I walked away from the anger, the hatred, the unforgiviness because I had to for me. If I wanted to be happy and move on, I had to let it all go.

 

As I stood there all of the painful memories came flooding back and for a second I was back in that place of utter pain I lived in for so long but as quick as it came it was gone because I know that I am free now. I am in a place of peace and joy and I am sorry he is still stuck in his hateful little world.

 

Doesn’t it count for anything that we were married for 24 years, that we have 2 beautiful daughters together, cant you get past the fact that it’s over. We have just 2 years left until both of them will be in college, getting their own lives, cant you just let it go?

 

But for you, I realize it’s all about the control, it’s always been about the control. Well sorry that’s your game, I walked away from that game a along time ago.

 

I walked out of the court house knowing I am free, I am happy and I have this incredible life I am leading and how grateful I am for it.

 

This is supposed to be how life is, happy and peaceful, full of laughter and joy not bitter, angry and hateful. I am sorry that he doesn’t realize that and that his attitude might one day push his girls out of his life for good. I feel sorry for my girls that they don’t have a father that’s whole and content. That they have to be on the receiving end of his anger and control issues yet again or until they too say enough is enough. That will be a sad day as I want my girls to have a father in their lives, they need a father in their lives and it’s sad that he doesn’t see what his anger and hatred is doing towards them.

 

I came home and had dinner with my girls, we made our yearly vision boards together while listening to music and eating popcorn. We talked about our future, our goals and our dreams and we laughed until our sides hurt.

Later on we curled up in bed together to watch a movie and again I realized how truly blessed I am.

This is what life is truly about….love, joy and the peace you feel in your heart knowing your living in the moment….this is your moment, make the best of it.

When storms come back

Hump day Treadmill Treats

 

When the storms come back

 

People always say to me that I am always blessed, that I have favor over my life and yes, I believe I am and I do. But what people don’t see is all the storms I’ve been through to finally see the rainbows.

 

They don’t know all the pain and suffering I’ve endured, the nights I stood up crying and praying for better days, the questions, why me? Didn’t I go through enough? When is it going to be good for me?

 

No, they only see the rainbow after the storm but here’s the thing I am human and I have storms. I am not afraid to speak my sorrows, write about when the rug gets pulled out from under me, I tell it all, the good, the bad and the really ugly.

 

Lately I have had alot of blessings and I have been so grateful for them and spoke of them as I always do but with life there is always the good with the bad, there is always the calm before the storm…

 

The storm came a few weeks ago, I broke my ribs at a clients home, you all know I love to exercise and because of this I had to put the brakes on that and my stress outlet.

I got a check in the mail last week for 1200 dollars which I thought was a blessing, turns out, my mortgage company screwed up and I had no insurance on my house and by the way that’s not your money, as we told you it was.

My computer and printer breaks, my phone which I thought was under warranty turns out not to be, 175.00 later.

 

My ex who is taking me to court yet again and who we thought would have to pay me, I end up owing him.

I changed health insurance companies and went to the doctor the other day for a double ear infection and sinus infection and found out they don’t accept that clinic or prescription and now I’m out both monies.

And for good measure some surveys I did for a company for 170.00, the checks bounced and the company is out of business.

 

Yesterday, when I got home, I had had enough,

I took a shower but as I stood there and cried, speaking to God and the universe, that I knew great things were coming, because for every time I go through a storm, every time things are coming at me in all directions, every time I get knocked to my knees,

I pray harder, it makes my faith bigger and the blessings that come from it are greater.

 

So to all you haters out there that are happy that I am going through this, hold on to your hats because the blessings that are coming  from this are going to blow your mind.

I will not stop believing nor will I worry about any of this. I had my pity party last night and it is over.

 

I am refreshed with my faith and I am laughing because this all happened while I am going through my yearly, week long Daniel fast, thinking it will break me.

 

What you don’t understand about me, is what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger, I will never give up, I will never stop believing, I will continue to be a surviver, I am more than a conquer,

I am a overcomer! And no weapon formed against me shall conquer.

 

So, all this….it will be okay,

I am not worried, I am actually excited that the enemy has to be that worried of the big plans God has for me to throw everything he has at me, hoping I will give up…. well that will never happen, this is the year of accelerated growth, the year we will get back from us what was taken from us for the next seven years.

 

2016 will be incredible and this setback is just that, a small setback that will not effect my faith.

 

So today my friends remember we all have setbacks, we all go through storms but it’s how we handle them while we are going through them that counts, do you give up? Are you out for the count? Do you let go of your faith when things get tough?

Or do you pray through the storm? Do you believe no matter what that this too shall pass?

 

It’s all up to give are you a victim or are you a surviver?  The choice is yours…choose wisely.

New year….new you

Tuesday Treadmill Treats

 

New year…new you

 

It’s amazing that we get so many chances to do over.. but nothing is like a new year. We leave the old one in the past and we get another 365 days to do whatever we didn’t get to  do in the past year.

 

We set goals, make plans, dream dreams, we feel like we can do anything!

But here’s the thing you don’t have to wait till the new year to start over.

No you can change your life any day, you don’t have to wait to Monday to start your diet, you don’t have to wait till next month to find a new job, your can do it right now.

 

It’s never to late to change, your never too old to learn something new, it’s all about you and your attitude. You can and will do anything you set your mind to, it’s up to you.

 

Hate your job, relationship is going no where, have a bad habit you need to stop? Guess what? You woke up today, you get another chance to change your life.

 

Stop blaming your life on everyone else, stop playing victim, stop saying this is how it is. It’s not, it’s you and your attitude that keeps you stuck where you are. You want change, you have to put in the work, what’s that saying, faith without works is dead.

 

You can’t want a new relationship yet just expect a new man to come knock at your door, you cant want a better job if you don’t apply for others, you cant want to change and then do nothing about it. You need to put in the work and then you need to believe that change is possible.

 

I say all the time I want to be a New York Times bestselling author, I want to be an international blogger and speaker on the women of faith tour but I just don’t speak it into the universe, I take action.

 

I blog on 6 sites, I am on every social media site I can be, I have 2 websites, I promote my book and blog every chance I get, I take classes on motivational speaking, I read, do research and learn so that when the day comes and it will (see that’s the faith part) I will be ready, I put my work into it and it will eventually pay off.

 

So today my friends, remember you have a chance every day to change your life, every week, every month, every year, it’s waiting…it’s waiting for you to decide to do…

It’s a new year make it a new you.

 

“Be the change you want to see”

 

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

New year resolutions

Treadmill Treats Monday Message

 

New year resolutions

 

Every year we all make new years resolutions, we vow to go to the gym more, eat right, make more money, do the things we should be doing already but didn’t.

 

Us gym rats know that the gym is packed the first month of the year but by the last week in January not so much and by the second week in February it’s just us die hards in there again.

 

So why do we do that to ourselves? Why do we make these resolutions only to break them and then make ourselves feel bad?

 

Three years ago I decided I wasn’t going to make anymore resolutions, I was going to make life resolutions, to do something to change who I was as a person inside.

 

2014 Let go and let God:

 

This meant I couldn’t control everything,

I couldn’t figure out all of my problems, if I wanted to change my life I had to let go of control and give it to God. God kept giving me messages but I thought I knew better.

 

All year long God has been knocking, he’s been telling you to follow him but you done what you wanted  to do where did it get you? So I decided to let go and let God.

 

2015 Pray and let God worry:

 

I remember stressing so much I couldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep, my hair was falling out, I even thought I was having a heart attack at one point. I couldn’t go on believing in God and keep stressing, it didn’t make sense, did I believe or not? Do I have faith or not? So I chose to pray and let God worry, that was the  best decision I ever made.

 

This year’s life resolution is

2016 Be present in my purpose:

 

I know I am here for a purpose, I know God gave me this gift of writing and to be able to touch others with my words and so this year I will be present in that purpose and know that this is where I am supposed to be.

 

My bible verse has always been: Romans 8 .28

God causes everything to happen for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

 

This year I fully intend to be present in this verse and my life.

 

The new year started with my Bishop saying that God is giving us back what was taken from us from the last 7 years…. That this year will be our start of incredible increase if we believe…

The scripture he gave was

 

Gen 12.1

Leave your native country your relatives and go to the land I will show you and I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you and make you famous and I will curse theses who treat you with contempt  all the families on earth will be blessed!

 

But you cannot get all of this if you still will not let go, if you still do not have faith…it’s all on you, can you get out of your own way to make things happen?

 

These are the 7 most destructive behavior you do to yourself.

 

1- Pride

2-Living in the flesh rather than being lead by the holy spirit

3-Procrastination

4-Gossip

5-Unforgivness

6-Jealousy

7-Want to be served instead of serving

 

Once we let go of these things, once we let go of control, once we learn faith and we pray and let God worry, once we are present in our purpose everything we ever wanted, everything we ever lost, was stolen from us, will be returned in abundance.

 

So today my friends, I tell you that this is your year, you are the only one to change the things in your life, if you truly want them to change you have to do the work and believe me sometimes it’s not easy, you don’t want to give up control, how can you not worry? How can I believe when crap is hitting the fan all around me? It is all up to you…I am no different than you…if I can do it then you can too.

 

Make your life resolutions today…
