When enough is enough

Thursday Treadmill Treats

 

When enough is enough

 

There comes a time in everyone’s life when enough is enough, this applies to all areas in your life.

 

When your relationship is enough, there has been enough cheating, enough lying, enough put downs, you are just done and you want out at all cost.

 

When your job is enough, it’s crushing you, you hate going every day, you cry going and coming home, you feel that you are not fullfiling your dreams or God’s Destiny for your life. You are suffocating and it doesn’t matter how much money you are making, because it is not worth it.

 

What about your partying ways? Are you drinking every day? Are you sick of waking up every day feeling like you got run over by a bus, you miss work, you lay in bed, swearing you wont do it again, yet there you are the next weekend pounding them down.

 

When you keep dating one loser after another, when they are not bringing anything to the table but their dicks, it’s enough and you realize you deserve so much more.

 

When is it enough? It’s when you are sick and tired, of being sick and tired, that is when it will be enough!

 

When you cant possibly imagine going through one more day doing this, when you want better for yourself and your life and you realize, you deserve better.

When you start to love yourself, value yourself, when you decied to share your life with a person who cares about you, not just to end up alone and a drunk, or thirty years later with a gold watch for a job you hated.

 

I realized this when my mom pasted away and then again, recently when my best friend suddenly pasted, how truly short life is and I realized that I didn’t want to waste a second longer being unhappy and being sick and tired so I made a change and  now my life is incredible!

 

I am now focusing on me, on becoming the best me I can be, in my health, my peace of mind, of what I want and what I no longer will settle for, ever!

 

So today my friends, remember you can change your life, it is up to you, you can dump the losers, you can lose the job thats killing you, you can cut off those toxic friends and family members. It’s your life, you get to choose and  when the day comes and you realize enough is enough, then all things are possible.

Why can’t we all come together always, like in Dallas?

Why can’t we always come together, like in Dallas?

 

I don’t understand people sometimes, why must it always take a tragedy to bring people together?

 

We all bleed the same color, we all want the best for our children and our families, we want to be good people. We are all doing the same things in life, no matter what economic status we are at, what religion, what sexual preference we have, what color we are, deep inside we all have a heart and we all bleed red.

 

So then why is it, we can’t come together every day and not just when a tragedy happens?

 

I remember when hurricane Andrew came to south Florida, everyone helped their neighbors, we went from house to house helping, we shared food, we shared gas, we got up on each others roofs, we came together.

 

It brought us closer and it formed friendships that have lasted years, in those weeks afterwards.

 

911 not only brought all New Yorkers together but all of the United States together and an us against them mentality went into play and suddenly we were all on the same side.

 

When the shootings in Orlando occured, we forget about the fact that people who were shot were gay, but that mother’s, father’s, sister’s and brother’s lost someome they loved to someone who was so closed mined that’s all he saw was their sexual preference and because he didn’t agree with their lifestyles, they needed to die.

 

And now in Dallas, people of all color, all religions, of all sexual preferences are coming together to help each other out, to reach out and help a neighbor, a stranger, because really people, that is who we are, deep in our core, we are giving, loving, human beings with huge compassionate hearts.

 

We are seeing it again, the true spirit of human beings, you wouldn’t let someone die in front of you because of their sexual preference or the color of the their skin.

 

No, during trying times, the best of us comes out, people become hero’s, but why? Why can’t we be like that every day and not just when a tragedy strikes?

 

That is a question every human being should be asking themselves right now….if we can help one another, if we can save another person, if we can love one another enough to go out of our way to do this, then why can’t we have this mentality on a day-to-day basis?

 

We can, because this is who we were made to be, just like children, they aren’t born with hate or racism, they love one another….we are taught these things… we need to change our way of thinking, we need to go back to being children, our truest self and realize we are all one.

 

So today my friends remember, if we can come together during a tragedy, we can come together every day, it’s up to you to make that change and as I always say in every blog…

“Be the change you want to see”

I am like Mayweather

Tuesday Treadmill Treats

 

I am like Mayweather

 

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have heard about the fight of the year, against Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, that was this weekend.

 

Mayweather is the undefeated champion of the world, with 49 wins under his belt. McGregor is a MMA champion but is not a trained boxer, so with 4 months of training, he decided to fight this champion.

 

If you didn’t see the fight, the first 5 rounds it looked like McGregor was winning, he came out and was giving it to Mayweather. But if your a true boxing fan you already knew that Mayweather stays back the first few rounds, he feels you out, he let’s you tire yourself out, he figuring out your style and then he shows his stuff!

 

See I love boxing because yes, it takes skill, it takes training but most of all, it takes heart. A heart of a boxer is something your born with, you get beat up, your bloody and bruised. You might even be down for the count but never, never count them out, because they can pull from their heart, their courage, their inner strength and come back for a knock out.

 

A few people I was with thought McGregor was going to win, but I knew Mayweather’s heart, I knew he was a true boxer and he was going to pull it out and true to form….

Floyd Mayweather Beats Conor McGregor by 10th-Round TKO in this megafight!

 

Yes, this is how I live my life and how you should as well. Never count me out, never bet against me, even if I fall down, even when they are doing the eight count, don’t bet your house because I will be back.

 

I will reach deep down, I will pull out my faith, my strength, I will remember how many other times I was knocked down and how many times I pulled myself out and I will get up and then whoop your ass!

 

Yes, I am a fighter, I know that all the fights, I fought, were training. All the tests were just making me stronger, they were giving me a testimony to be able to tell others not to give up.

To say, look at me, you counted me out, you didn’t think I could do it, you bet against me but ha! What do you have to say now?

 

I refuse to give up, I have been through too much to throw in the towel, I know my season is coming and I will be the champion.

 

Yes, I’ve had a shitty life, lots of things that have came at me, I’ve been knocked down, beat up, left for dead. Most others would have given up, raised the white flag, but not me, I am here for a purpose to teach my daughter’s strenght, to show them they are winners, that you never give up.

 

I am here to preach this word to them and the rest of the world…to have a boxer’s heart, to never give up, to get up time and time again because you too have a heart of a champion!

 

So today my friends remember, it’s never too late, you may be in the last minutes of the 12th round, you may have lost every other round, they counted you out but until that last bell rings, until then, your still in it, and when you pull your inner strength from within, you can and will knock that sucker out!

 

You my friends are a winner, we will never give up, yes, we are like Mayweather, a true champion.

The power of words

Treadmill Treats Monday message

 

The power of words

 

I, better than most people know the power of words, as I was in a verbally abusive marriage for 24 years.

I am still going through this, because my girls are dealing with the abusive from their father as well.

 

Words can and will hurt you…the childhood song “Sticks and stones will break your bones but words will never hurt me”

 

That song is crap,

because who ever wrote it, was obviously

never verbally abused.

 

“The tongue is the smallest member but holds the most power”

 

All through the bible there are verses that say this, remember what you speak and who you speak over. Your words can change a person, that is how much power they hold.

 

Ask yourself are emotionally, physically or mentally in captivity with the words you speak?

Do you say, “I can’t do that, I will never achieve that, that is too big of a dream”

Do you listen to the outside voices? “You’ll never be anything, your useless, your nothing”

 

Do you, yourself speak it over your children? “Your just like your father, your stupid, I can’t stand you”

 

There is a heart and mouth connection in our faith

“If you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart, you will be saved”

 

Speak your faith, even when you can’t see it, that is what faith is all about.

In the word of God, we find love, we find acceptance, he is not a man that he can lie, he gave you purpose before you were formed. He spoke what and who you were going to be, over your life, remember he never makes mistakes, you are not a mistake.

 

We have to remeber that words attract spirits…

Good or bad…

It can bring us blessings or curses.

 

The book and movie The Secret tells you all the same things as the bible…what you put out there comes back to you, you speak what you want your life to be, what you want to attract into your life.

 

Never forget that God has a plan for your life, plans of prosperity and good.

 

The word of God is a seed and every seed has a purpose.

If you mediate on the word, if you speak the word of God, if you surround yourself with people who also speak the word, you will change your situation…

 

“Death and life is in the power of the tongue”

 

What have you been speaking over your life, your relationship, your finances, your children? Think long and hard about that.

 

You are the mouthpiece of God, you can see what God sees, he made you in his image, see faith is the substance of things hoped for yet unseen.

 

So today my friends, remember you need to feed yourself, to exercise your faith, to speak over yourself and your family. You have the power, an amazing power of good, you can change the world, one kind word at a time, you my friend, have the power of words.

 

“Be the change you want to see”

You need to bring more to the table then just your junk

You have to bring more to the table then just your junk

 

I have to tell you, I heard this message before, from friends and from my amazing cousin who always has my back but somehow it never sank it like this.

 

You know how you know what is the right thing to do, but you keep screwing up until one day bam! It hits you like a ton of bricks and it’s then when you change? Well that was me until this trip home.

 

I was having dinner with an old friend and we started talking about dating and my dating life in particular.

 

He said I should just take a break, that I was a good women with a lot to offer but I was letting all kinds of losers come to my table without bringing something.

 

And I will quote him excalty:

 

“He needs to bring something to the table,  dinners, roses, candy, hell even a dam biscuit but not just his dick! He needs to bring more to the table than just his dick!”

 

I laughed, it was funny but that was my Oprah light bulb moment, he was absoulty right and maybe I needed to hear it this way, maybe I needed to hear it from a man, maybe I was just ready to hear it, whatever the reason was, I heard it loud and clear.

 

He and the others were right, yes, I’ve been single for the last 6 years and yes, I would love to be in a relationship but hell, I do have a lot to offer and I am giving it away at a bargain price when I am priceless.

 

Maybe it’s because of where I was for so many years, not valued, constantly put down and not appreciated that I think it’s okay to get just the crumbs. Hello! It’s not, it never will be!

 

I am a good women and I am not saying that to brag, that is just a fact. It’s okay to say that, to  own our value, to say hey, we bring a lot to the table…what do you bring?

 

Why do we feel like we will never find a man, so we put up with losers that ghost us, that call us only when they want a piece of ass, liars, cheaters or men who say they want a relationship but are not willing to step up?

Why do we not value ourselves enough to say move it along buster, there’s the door, don’t let it hit you in the ass on the way out.

 

It might be for the reasons I did it, you’ve been beat down for so long, you don’t think you deserve it or maybe it’s because your afraid of being alone or maybe you don’t think you can find a good man out there, that’s one I hear a lot, no good men left, that’s bullshit!

 

I know a lot of great men, I have great male friends so I know they are out there, it’s who you are picking, let’s be real here.

 

I am being real here and now, Steven’s death taught me a lot of lessons, the biggest is life is too short, I am not wasting another minute on bullshit men.

 

I have found my worth,

I know what I bring to the table….honestly, loyalty, kindness, a big heart, a ride or die chick that will build you up and have your back always. I am independent, I can cook you some amazing meals and I will always show you what a real men needs in the bedroom….oh Hell yeah, I went there… I know what I am bringing!

 

We have a lot to offer, we need to stand up and like that song “Good women” says..

“Pay a couple bills, make a couple of meals, make me feel good half the time… I can do that by myself….

You got a good, good women, you better pull it together and act like know you do”

 

So today my friends, I am here to tell you that I know what I bring to the table….now you better step up and show me what you bring and it ain’t just gonna be your dick!

 

“Be the change you want to see”

 

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

Not everyone has your heart

Thursday Treadmill Treats

 

Not everyone has your heart

 

This has been a hard lesson for me to learn, as I think everyone has a heart like mine. I think because I would get up out of my bed at 3 am for a friend in need that others would do the same for me.

 

I think that when I am in a relationship, the other person would give 100% like I do.

I think that even when I am just seeing someone that they would be there for me in my time of need, like I would be there for them….they won’t….why? Because everyone doesn’t have my heart.

 

It’s a hard lesson because I can’t fathom the idea of not caring, of not reaching out or going above and beyond for someone. I can’t fathom the idea of not being a true and loyal friend or lover.

 

I can’t see how people don’t go above and beyond to show their love to someone but they don’t and I have to see that and realize not everyone is going to do what I do or what I think they should do.

 

Not everyone is capable of undying love or sacrifice for others. Not everyone is selfless and giving of themselves. Not everyone cares as much as I do and I need to get over my fantasy that they will change…they won’t.

 

I need to listen when people tell me who they are and believe them. I need to learn to trust my instincts when I feel something is not right.

I need to realize when it is a lost cause, cut my losses and walk away.

 

I need to value my self worth enough to say nope that ain’t happening, you will not treat me like that or not today buddy and close that door for good.

 

I need to remember I am a role model for my girls, that I must practice what I preach, that I can’t tell others to value themselves, when I clearly don’t value me.

 

I need to accept people  for who they are, on their level of what they are capable of giving and if I can’t, then I need to walk away.

 

I can’t get mad or hurt when they are not willing or able to be what I want them to be or to step up, like I think they should, this is clearly my issue.

 

I have learned a lot in the last 4 years, more now then ever before in my life, because I chose to learn the lessons. I look for them in everything, the good and the bad,

I ask, “What is the lesson here? What is God trying to teach me?”

 

This was clearly a lesson I needed to learn and I have to tell you, it was a painful one, but I got it, loud and clear.

 

So today my friends remember, do you, do good because that is who God made you to be. Don’t worry about others doing what you do, sometimes they won’t, they can’t, still do you, anyways.

If you go about it this way you won’t end up hurt or disappointed, because not everyone has your heart.

4 years of freedom

Hump day Treadmill Treats

 

4 years of freedom

 

Today is the anniversary of my freedom, four years ago today I got divorced.

I have to tell you, it has been the best four years of my life.

 

If I would have known how truly happy and at peace I would be feeling today, I’ve would have done this years and years ago.

 

What has the fear in your life has kept you from doing? Fear will keep you hostage in a bad marriage, in a lousy job, with friends that no longer suit you. Yes, fear will keep you locked up better than any maximum security prison will.

 

I was afraid that I couldn’t make it, being a single mom of two, not being on my own for 24 years, believing all that he spoke about me. That I was useless, stupid, that I couldn’t make it without him and that I was stuck in this verbally abusive marriage forever.

 

So many of you out there may be in this position right now, your scared, you have no self esteem, you have children that you need to care for. I know what your going through and I am here to tell you that you can do it.

 

You can be happy, you can stop living your life like your walking on eggshells each and every day. There is a big, beautiful world out there and its yours, if you will only step out and let go of the fear.

 

Last night I was thinking about all that I did while in that marriage.

I cooked, I cleaned, did laundry.

I made sure dinner was on the table every night at 6,

I cleaned the yard, the pool, the sprinklers, I fixed everything that broke.

 

I worked part time, I took care of both of our business and all the office work and I did hair at night. I was room mom and PTA mom.

 

I was at every function my girls had, every sport, I was the milk and cookies mom after school, the weekend mom that took them to every park, bike riding, surfing, skate boarding, all while every morning getting up at 6 am to go to the gym 5 days a week.

 

I was doing this all on my own anyway why couldn’t I be happy while I was doing it without him? Your reading this and thinking yes, I do all of that…Yes, you do yet your miserable, you cry yourself to sleep and you pray for a different life.

 

You have the power to change it all, will it be a bed of roses? Oh hell no, it will be tough, it will be scary but you will be happy, you will feel a peace like no other, a sense of accomplishment.

 

You will come home to “your” home, there will be no yelling, no put downs, no drama, because it is your life now and you get to chose how to live it.

You are in control of your own happiness and there is nothing like that feeling.

 

How did I do it? I read books, I started liking myself again, I envisioned and dreamed about what my life would be like. I made vision boards, I  joined self help groups but what changed it all for me was I prayed.

 

I gave it all over to God, I prayed and let him worry. I stepped out in faith, no money, just starting a new business, just divorced lots of pressure right? No…I knew he would take care of me and he did and continues to do so.

 

I was going over my bills last night and I don’t know how I do it…but God…

I get to travel, I have been blessed with so many things and so many incredible people in my life, my girls are good, we are healthy.

I have an amazing Church, my Pastor and Church family, my life is more than I dreamed it could be!

 

So today my friends remember…believe in yourself, believe that you can do it, step out on faith, let go of the fear, you are stronger than you know.

Life is too short to be anything but happy…

Nothing is impossible if you believe….

Life is tough, you be tougher

Tuesday treadmill treats

 

Life is hard, you be harder

 

Today’s blog is dedicated to my beautiful daughter and her wonderful boyfriend and to all the young people out there, who are struggling.

 

People who right now, think that life is really tough, who are having a hard time making it, they can’t find a job, school is rough or they are worried about how they are going to pay for it. Maybe like my daughter they have no idea what they want to do with the rest of their lives.

 

They want to move out, yet they don’t have enough money to move out, things are way too expensive out there.

 

All of the things that life throws at us each and every day that we all have to deal with but being so young, they have no idea how to cope with.

 

They should throw out the bullshit courses in school and teach real life things they need, like money management, how to deal with stress, how to apply and keep a job, real life things, that would be useful later on.

 

I truly feel bad for them, they are trying to find jobs, find themselves, find out their purpose in life but I truly feel bad because I know what real stress is.

 

Real stress is how are you paying the rent, how you have 50.00 to your next payday and that’s 2 weeks away and you need gas, food and stuff for your kids.

Real stress of kids, a husband your fighting with, bills, losses of people you love and unforseen storms that keep pounding at you.

 

If you can’t handle this now, how are going to handle the big stuff? You have to be tougher, you have to adapt a fighters mentality.

(Yes, lots of fighting references this week, I am a huge boxing fan!)

 

You have to know that even if you get knocked down, the fight is not over. You can be bloodied, you can be beat up, you can feel like you can’t get punched once more, that every fiber in your body wants to quit but the fighter deep inside won’t let you, you are going to fight until your last breathe.

 

You will not give up, you will not quit…you will chant…

“I can, I must, I will”

 

Over and over until you find that strength to come back in the 12th round and pound his ass!

 

To surprise him and everyone else who bet against you, who talked shit about you, who said you couldn’t do it!

 

“There… now what you got to say? No, shit talking now…didnt think I could do it huh? Ha!”

 

Yes, you may be down now but your not out, this is a test, this will build your character, this will make the testimony that much better. There is always someone out there worst off then you, find them, help them, give them hope, know it will be okay.

 

Learn faith, whatever that faith may be to you, learn that when you believe anything can happen, it will.

That no dream is too big if your believe, look for the lessons and learn them now, because you will need them later on.

 

Know if you work hard, if you never stop believing, even in the worst storms, that it will be okay.

Listen to me…it will be okay….

It looks dark now, you feel lost, it’s hard …it feels like it would be easier to just give up…

Believe me, I hit rock bottom….not once but twice. I know the darkness, I know what it feels like to want to throw in the towel and end the fight but you have no idea how it feels to dig deep and pull out a strength from above, to come back and be a winner, to say Ha! So there!

 

To reach your goals and dreams, to know you have a true fighters heart and spirit.

 

So today my friends, today my incredible daughter and her amazing boyfriend…remember life is tough sometimes, it may knock you down, but your not out, life maybe tough but you are tougher!

 

I believe in you, you can and will do it…and the result will be amazing…trust me!

The harder the fight, the tougher the warrior you will become!!

 

“Be the change you want to see”

Being grateful through your storms

Treadmill Treats Monday message

 

Being grateful even though your storms

 

These last few months have been tough, I thought this was my season, that things were going good and that maybe my life was changing for the better.

 

That I had a season of good coming and I had left the storms of the past behind. Hey, I deserved it, I earned it, I had enough heartache, losses and tears to last me a lifetime.

 

Beside I am a Christian I know God cannot lie, he said he would and I believe him, so when all of these storms came at me these last few months, I felt almost defeated.

 

Key word here…almost…

Yes, I questioned, I cried, I had a few pity parties. I felt like I was in a 12 round fight and I was losing.

 

I kept getting pounded, one punch after another, over and over again.

Betrayals, hurts by friends, heart aches, been lied to, talked about, financial problems, you name it, it came at me, to pound me down.

 

But everyday when I woke up, I still thanked God that I was alive. Every morning on the way home from the gym, I thanked him I was healthy enough to go, that I was grateful I wasnt in my old marriage, that I was free.

 

I thanked him through out the day that I had a business I loved and somehow my bills were paid and I had my home.

I thanked him that my girls were healthy and happy, that we loved each other and had each other’s back.

I thanked for my church, my pastor and my church family.

 

At night, I thanked him for the rest of my blessings, my friends and family, small things…everything.

 

I told him I knew the plans he had for me…but could he tell me what the lessons were, I was suppose to be learning from these storms.

 

This last week taught me a lot of lessons, your still going to have losses, not everyone is like you, some people won’t be there for you and people will surprise you and will be there for you.

Big one here…you can hear a message a hundred times and yet one person can say it different and it’s your ah ha moment.

 

The most important lesson I’ve learned through this is that I am a fighter and I am not going down.

 

I will stand here with my head held up high while going through the storms because I am not going anywhere.

I am standing here waiting for my season, I refuse to give up without my reward, without my prize.

 

Oh hell no….I have not been beat up this many times without getting a belt…No, I am going home with a title belt that says I am winner.

I may have gotten my ass beat, I may have been knocked down, but I came back, time and time again.

 

I wore you down, you bet against me, you thought I was out for the count but surprise I am back, stronger than ever!

 

I am going to win this fight, I am going to be the heavy weight champion!

I will be standing here telling others not to give up, to never stop fighting!

I will be Rocky, the under dog, I will be screaming “God I did it, God you did…look at the payoff”

But I will never give up! Never !

 

So come at me, give it all you got, I am here, I am not afraid because I am a fighter, I am a child of the most high God, I am a winner.

 

This is a new chapter in my life, I am a changed person once again and even through these storms, I am still here, I am still believing, I am still grateful to be alive.

 

So today my friends remember, be grateful, even through your storms because you never know what’s on the other side, you never know what is at the end of that rainbow and if you give up now…you’ll never find out.

Saying goodbye

Hump day Treadmill Treats

 

Saying goodbye

 

Today I sit at the airport yet again, but I am not happy about this trip home.

This trip home isn’t to see my friends or family, to site see or to relax and enjoy some time off. No, this trip is one of the hardest for me as I must say goodbye to one of my childhood best friends.

 

My heart is heavy, my eyes filled with tears and as much as I would like, there is no smile on my face today.

 

Even saying all that, it still makes me grateful that I had the time I did with him, the last visit home and in the last two years.

 

See there is no regrets for me…he knew I loved and treasured him and I knew he felt the same about me. In fact as I was boarding the plane the last time, he called and said

“I wasn’t sure if I told you how much I loved you and I didn’t want you to leave until I did”

 

He made my day, see I told him I loved him every time we spoke,  but I tell all my friends, my family, everyone I care for that, because unfortunately I know how short life is.

I know we are not all promised tomorrow and just like that, it can be over.

 

I am quick to forgive, I am quick to reach out, even after I’ve been hurt because I know that one small fight, could change the course of your life.

 

You might not ever have the chance to make it right, to apologize for the words that cut like a knife, to let someone know how much they truly meant in your life.

 

I don’t ever want to live with regrets, I am living my life large, full of love and kindness, I am being present in every moment.

 

When people ask me why do I give so many chances, why do I forgive so fast, why don’t I let things bother me…

Why? Life is short…will it really mean anything in the big picture? We all screw up, we all say things we wish we didn’t, we all deserve second chances.

 

I am not here to judge others, I am here to show love, to be the light, to touch as many hearts as possible. I am not going to waste my precious time here on petty nonsense.

 

So today my friends, I will say my final goodbye to one of my best friends, as much as it will hurt me, I have no regrets, he knew how much I loved him and I knew how much he loved me and I know that one day he will be there, waiting for me, with his arms open wide, his head back laughing, with that shit eating grin…telling me how much he missed and how much he loved me and I will know that I lived my life doing the right thing.”Be the change you want to see”

 

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