Today I will walk on fire

Today I walk on fire

 

If you read my blog or my book, you know I have been through some shit in my life. Sometimes I wonder how I survived, but God…

 

I always feel I am a survivor, that no matter what life throws at me I will overcome it, I feel like I have walked through fire and come out like the Phoenix reborn into something bigger and better!

 

I am always telling you that all that you want you can achieve, all you need to do is put it out there and believe.

 

Yes, I do practice what I preach. I have made a vision board every year since 2008. Even in that horrible verbally abusive  marriage, I kept one in my garage over my washer and dryer. Every day as I washed and folded clothes I would stare at it, I would envision my life the way I wanted it, I put pictures of what my home would look like when I was finally free. Places I would go, the feelings I would feel, like gratefulness and peace and joy. I never once stopped believing and guess what all of those things happened!

 

I went to Greece, I started my own business, I bought my own home, I did a triathlon, I jumped out of a plane…I did everything on that vision board because I believed I could do it.

 

So when I started my bucket list, way back when, I put on there,Tony Robbins walk on fire seminar.

It was symbolism to me,

I knew I had been though the fire and I wanted to show myself and my readers that anything is possible.

 

Being a single mom and knowing how expensive this was, I knew it would be a long time for me to able to do this. But I kept it on my vision board and kept believing that it would happen.

 

A few months ago I meet a client and while I was organizating her home I found a bunch of books from Tony Robbins. We started talking about him and my vision board.

Two weeks later she called me and told me she wanted to bless me and she had purchase tickets for me.

 

I was so speechless I cried. Yes, I put it out there, I believed and now it was coming to pass, just like so many other things on my vision board!

 

There is no dream too big, nothing is impossible if you believe, I am living proof of that.

 

So when you constantly see me saying I will be a New York Times bestselling author, that I will have an international blog, that I will be on the Women of Faith tour as a motivational speaker.

 

That I will be on Oprah Super Soul Sunday and that  Tyler Perry will produce my life story, you can laugh all you want, but I am believing for all that and more, it’s never too late, your never to old, it’s never to big of dream to dream!

 

All you have to do is believe and look at that….

Thursday I will be walking on fire

Ha!! I have walked through fire and now I will be walking on fire!!

 

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IF YOU BELIEVE! !

 

Live large, laugh often, love with all your heart, dream big!

March has significant meaning to me

Hump day Treadmill Treats

 

March has significant meaning to me

 

Life is so short and time flies by so fast sometimes we lost track of time and how many years this or that happened in our lives.

 

Well, thank God for Facebook and their reminders of what you were doing a year, two years even three years ago to keep you updated.

 

It was because of those reminders that I realized that March was so significant to me.

Dont get me wrong, I remembered all of these events but didn’t realize that they all happened in the same week in March.

 

I sit here and laugh as I think back over my life in these last 4 years since I was separated and then divorced.

 

I realized that in March this last week, 3 years ago, Stella got her Groove back. I went out with someone I had the biggest crush on while I was in high school, 1st time I was with another man in 24 years.Talk about scary! But I needed to know I was still desirable, that I was wanted, that I still had it. Hey, after a loveless, fake ass marriage, a women needs to feel that, let’s be real here.

 

Well that’s one thing you can always count on me to be, is real!

Anyway it turned out to be an incredible experience, one I will never forget and even though it didn’t work out the way I wanted it to, we are still great friends until this day. He helped me grow and start my journey and I am forever grateful for all he taught me.

 

A year later I met Mr.Con Artist and found out he was lying and cheating and threw him to the curb  (literally) Yes, that also happened this week two years ago! I remember reading all I wrote at the time, all the pain I was in, how devastating it was because he knew me since we were 12 and he knew all the hurt I had endured in my life and still took advantage of all of that.

 

I didn’t date for a year, he cured me of that.

But I thank him as well because he also taught me so many lessons and I got to teach my girls, thoese lessons, like never to stand for a lying, cheating man, it’s a one shot deal with me you cheat and lie, we’re done!

 

After that year of retrospect I started talking to my high school sweetheart again. I had just bought and remodeled a new home and I was fried.

I was emotionally, physically and financially wiped out and when he suggested I come home to New York to spend a few days of down time I was ready.

 

This was a full circle, unreal  moment for me as I could remember for years sitting in my tub every night with my wine and my sleeping pills, crying myself into a drunken stupor praying my ex husband would be asleep when I finally stumbled out of the tub.

 

And here I was in my high school sweethearts bathtub, that he filled for me, with coffee he brought me, telling me breakfast would be ready soon. I had dreamed of this moment for so many years and now I was living it, it so surreal it brought me to tears.

 

It was the most incredible weekend of my life but I learned yet another lesson as much as you might want to go back, sometimes the problems that were there the first time around are still the stumbling blocks today. He will always hold my heart and I am so grateful for that weekend but I realized it could never be again.

 

So while I was reading all of these events that happened in March, I was on a cruise in Mexico. Talk about an interesting month!

 

I have learned a lot of lessons to get to this point,

I had a lot of tears and alot of laughs, I had some heartbreaking moments and some life changing moments as well.

 

I am at a place of peace now, I am good with me and know my own worth.

I know that I am a survivor,  and that I am okay.

 

I am ready to open my heart to someone and not bring the sins of the past into it, I have learned valuable lessons from each of these people. Lessons that taught me about me, lessons that let me grow into who I am now.

 

So today my friends, I will forever reflect on March as my most incredible learning month and I will give thanks for all that gave me those lessons.

I can not wait until next year’s March…you never know what will happen if you believe!
