When the student is ready, the teacher will appear

When the student is ready the teacher will appear

This is such a true saying, sometimes we are not ready to learn the lessons we need to, sometimes we are not open enough to receive. But when we are aligned up with the universe, with God, with whatever you want to call it, when we are ready, what we need will come.

I have been on this journey of change for the last 6 years, trying to at first find my voice again, then trying to answer the question we all come to “Is this all there is in life?”

From there I asked what is my purpose? What was I meant to do here on earth? When I realized my purpose, the next question was “Where am I suppose to go from here and then how do I get there?”

I have always said I have envisioned my life, free from my verbally abusive marriage, I envisioned my home, my business, all of this. At one point I started to envision motivional speaking, even though I was afraid of public speaking. I envisioned myself speaking in front of large audiences, I even envisioned myself on The Women of Faith tour.

Yes, I dream big, why not, who says you can’t? You are the only one that holds yourself back, dream big, then dream bigger!

This last weekend I was blessed with a weekend retreat with a dear friend to the AmondaRose Igoe, Empowered Speaker Event, which was a 3 day motivational speakers conference.

She was amazing, it was like a motivational speaker for dummies class. She walked you step by step on what to do, how to do it and what not to do. She broke it down with her laughter, her bigger than life personality and her warmth that made you feel like, yes, you can do this.

She also had us connect with each other, reach out, step out of our boxes which made it so much better as we made friends with people, we learned things about people we would have never guessed. That is what she did, she taught us to connect. We all have a story, we can all connect to our audience, we have to just be vulnerable, to be open, to be our authentic selves.

She made us think, gave us courage and taught us the easy steps to take this from a dream to a career. I realized that it wasn’t as hard as I thought, l have the ability to connect to people, I have the story, now I have the tools to do this, really do this.

I have been to many events, spent thousands of dollars, hearing speakers, taking classes and I have to tell you, she was by far was the best, this wasn’t a sales pitch, just trying to sell you the next big thing. No, this genuine women cared about teaching you all she knew and you felt it, you knew it.

I have come away from this knowing that yes, I am ready, this is what I want my next step to be.
I envisioned myself on stage like her, teaching others how to change their lives.

My writing will always be my first passion, but to actually be able to connect in person, that is my gift and this is the next obvious step.
So today my friends, this student was definitely ready for this teacher to appear.

My immense gratitude, to you AmondaRose, for being the teacher I needed when I needed it.

Being grateful all the time

Being grateful all the time

I write about this all the time, because this is such a huge thing in my life. I am so grateful for every day, for every second of my life, I live in the moment, I love big, I live large.

See I know it could be another way, hell it was for so many years and I remember those days, knowing I never want to go back there ever again.

This weekend I was blessed with a trip to Hutchington Island for a 3 day Motivational speaker conference with a dear friend. (Read more about that in tomorrow’s blog)
I got to meet some amazing people and learned how to do what I want to pursue as a full time career, better.

As I was driving home, I thought about the whole weekend, I thought about my dear friend who I went with, my new friends I had met and the endless possibilities that lie ahead of me on this next journey of my life and I started to cry.

See I am so grateful about where I am, where I am going and all the things in my life that it literally brings me to tears. It overwhelms me to think about how blessed I feel, to know in spite of my incredibly hard life I had, that I have overcame it all. I overcame the darkest, deepest hole, that I clawed my way out of. I overcame disappointment, loss and failure to be in a space of gratitude.
I overcame rape, drug and alcohol addiction, a verbally abuisve marriage, I overcame fear, self doubt and self hatred to be in this place of love.

I am constantly learning, constanly changing to become a better person, to help others see if I can do it, you can do it too.

I am here to speak my truth, to let whoever will listen, what my God has done for me. To give praise to him, to speak his name and know that without him all of this would have never been possible.

There is not a day that goes by that I don’t give him thanks as soon as I open my eyes, that I don’t give thanks even during the storms, even while life is coming at me hard and fast and I feel like I can’t breathe, I am still giving thanks, I am still filled with gratitude.

Yes, I cry, I cry all the time, tears of joy, tears of gratefulness, tears of forgiveness and love. I can remember crying tears of sorrow, of hatred, of unforgiveness, self hate, guilt and of being unfulfilled.

So much has changed in my life, because I’ve changed it, I stepped out, I decided enough was enough and I moved on.
I left all of these feelings in the past. Was it easy? Oh hell no, nothing worth anything is easy but ask me was it worth it and I will start crying as I tell you how worth all the pain was.

So today my friends, remember you can do anything you set your mind to, change your mindset to one of gratitude, change your life and you too will be feeling grateful all the time.

You never know until you try

You never know until you try…..

I always talk about trying new things and changing your life, it’s all up to you.
How do you know if you are going to like something or don’t like something until you try? Change is not a bad word, you just need to embrace it.

I was talking to a friend recently and she told me she worked 18 years for one company that was now closing. She was worried and she was making herself sick thinking about things that she had no idea would or would not happen.

We all worry about things we can’t change but let me ask you something if you worry does it change anything? No, it will make you lose sleep, it will make your hair fall out, it will make you run to the doctor thinking you are having a heart attack.

It will physically make you sick, believe me I know, I had all these symptoms and more and did it make any of my problems go away? No! I was more worried about how I was going to pay the doctors bills! So, now I have even more stress…that is when I realized why worry? That day I let it go and I let go of other things that stressed me out as well, like what if’s and should have.

We all have these things in our lives, things we stress about, things that we let stress us out.

Like what if I crossed the street and get hit by a bus? Should I never leave my house?

What if is a big one, what if this happens? What if that happens? What if you stop worrying about shit that might or might not happen. Why waste your life like that.

What if’s will rob you of your future, it will make you afraid of living life.
Should have… another life killer, you live with regrets and you live in the past, constanly thinking I should have done this or I should have done it that way,
second guessing yourself each step of the way.
These will all make you lose focus on the here and now.

See just like the famous saying in Forrest Gump “Life is life a box of chocolates, you never know what your going to get”
You don’t know until you try, you don’t know until you let go of fear, of what if’s and of should have’s.

So today my friends, let go of the fear, let go of the what if’s, let go of should haves, live for the moment, embrace change, look for the good in every opportunity. Learn your lessons from things and move on, live life large! Believe me, it’s all there and there are such better ways to live your life and you’ll never know until you try.

live your life like your living

Live your life like your living

One of my favorite songs is Tom Mcgraw’s Live like your dying. It speaks about a man who finds out he is dying and what he does, knowing that fact. He goes out and sky dives, he goes rocky mountain climbing, he rides a bull, he spends time with people he didn’t have time for before.

He does all the things he should have done all along. You don’t know when your time is coming, why live your life saying oh poor me, that can’t happen to me, I have been cursed all my life, I can’t do that.

Maybe your not taking the steps you need to, maybe because your procrastinating, maybe it’s your actions or what you speak into the atmosphere about yourself or your life that is effecting you.

If you tell a child every day from the time they were born that they are stupid that child will grow up believing that they are stupid. Same thing is happening in your mind, you might have been brought up with someone saying that to you and now you believe it, you might think your doomed.

You think you will never amount to anything because someone once said that and now that has become your mantra. You blame everything on your childhood, you are constantly putting it out there…. if it wasn’t because my parents were drunks, my dad abandoned us, we were poor, you were molested, ……insert your sob story here.

You are your own worst enemy, you are blocking your own blessings, you have told yourself this so many times you actually believe it and guess what? You are fulfilling your own prophecy.

But here’s the thing, your mind is an incredible tool, it can make you do things you never thought you could. It has let people survive unimaginable acts, the worst of times, things that might have otherwise killed us, but our minds made us believe we could survive and we did.

You can change your life, you have the control over your own mind, you can believe your a loser or you can tell yourself each and every day your a winner. You are someone and you will show them.
It is up to you, what you are putting out there and what you believe.

So today my friends, remember it’s your life, you don’t have to wait till someone tells you that your going to die to live like that. Life is too short, I always tell you that, my life motto is live life large, live it now, live it on your terms. Don’t let your past actions rule your present, live your life as if your on the way out, live it now, chose to live it like your living it to the fullest.

“Be the change you want to see”

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

My dating Fiasco’s

My dating Fiasco’s

These last few years in dating as a single women has been a trip to say the least.

When I first got separated I didn’t date those first two years as I needed time to find me, time to forgive him and to own my part in the dismise of my marriage except for a Stella got her groove back moment, I stayed alone.

Then after my divorce I met a much younger man, he was sweet, fun and just what I needed at the time but we both wanted different things so we parted ways as friends. I had a few dates and then I met Mr.Con Artist.
If you don’t know who he is read my old blogs, ever seen the movie The other women? Well that was my story plus 3 other women, and yes, I am friends with his ex wife! I can not make this shit up, people… I am serious!

He left a horrible taste in my mouth about dating and men in general, so for the following year I didn’t date at all, I threw myself into my book and my new home remodeling job.

After being dateless for a year and all of my projects done I thought I would try dating again….yuggg maybe being single and alone was better! Here is my dating fiasco review since then.

1- Mr. I look nothing like my one picture:
As I found out walking around for 20 minutes looking for “him”

2- Mr. I hate everyone:
Who was half white and half black but proceeded to tell me how his idea of the order of races should go, with black and Spanish being in the bottom of the barrel. “Oh, did you not notice your half black and by the way I’m half Puerto Rican”
As he stood there watching me walk away with his mouth open.

3- Mr. I am Doctor so I must be important in my own mind:
That gave me 60 seconds to send him my name and number, I told him I only needed one second to tell him what a pompous ass I thought he was.

4- Mr. Hi here’s my junk:
After exchanging numbers he text me “Hi, how are you” “Fine how’s your day going?”
“Good” then BAM  here’s a pic of my junk! Seriously?
People I can’t make this shit up!!

Note: to all of you guys who send pics of your junk…your junk better be some extraordinary junk because otherwise I will be showing it to all my friends and we will all be laughing at your junk for days!!

5- Mr. I’m so famous in my own mind:
Who wanted me to come to his house and when I asked if he thought I was crazy, that I would never go to some man’s house I didn’t know. Hello….I’m a New Yorker I know better than that, he said he would come out on the patio and wave to me  because he was “so famous” He should be worried about me!
(BTW it was one newspaper article about him being the world’s youngest world traveler, great feat but doesn’t make you “famous” only in your own mind)

6- Mr. I want a relationship in one date:
He didn’t have a medium button, he talked about “Our relationship” Hello, I just met you! The he proceeded to chased me around the pool table and scared me right out the door.

7-Mr. I didn’t say 3 words:
Yes, he said he was shy, but I know I talk enough, I sure as hell don’t need to talk for the both of us!

8- Mr. Lets meet for coffee and I’ll let you watch me drink mine:
Yes, he never even offered me a cup of coffee! And this wasn’t Stsrbucks 4.00 coffee this was Dunkin donuts 1.35 coffee.
I had just came from the gym and had my keys and my phone, no purse, no pockets, no money and I sat there watching him drink coffee while he never asked if I wanted anything. He then had the nerve to call to ask me out again, my answer…..”What so I can watch you drink your coffee in front of me again…no thanks”

9. Mr. My ex is a bi-polar bitch: when I found out that it was him who was a passive aggressive, controlling asshole and his ex wife turned out to be a amazing women and yes, I am friends with her as well now!

10. Mr. I want a relationship until we get into one:
Then I realized that he still had way too much baggage that he never dealt with from his past. Too late for me and my broken heart.

I’ve learned a lot of things these last few years, like never date a guy with one picture, with pictures from the neck up, with no pictures aka: catfish or married. I learned that so many men are looking for a texting pal or pen pal.
Hello, if I wanted that there are lots of men in prison that would be happy to do that??Wtf??

They say they want relationships, yet talk about sex throughout their profiles or have half naked pics of themselves all over.

They say women are gold diggers yet post pictures of their cars, boats, homes and toys, really??

Men lost the art of dating, no longer do they take you out to dinner, or hell even lunch, now it’s a drive by date at a coffee place and if your lucky you’ll get a cup of coffee or maybe just the pleasure of their texts with no meet up in sight. Hello, we are on a dating site to meet…. am I missing something here?
God, I miss the days of real gentlemen and real dating…

Just so you don’t think it’s me, I did meet my first boyfriend from a dating site and have meet a few nice guys, just no connection, no chemistry in person but still nice guys.

So yes, I believe there are still nice guys out there and
no, I don’t think all men are dogs, I just seemed to attract more of the dog type, see I said that in past tense as I no longer want to out that out in the universe.

So today my friends, my biggest tip to this dating thing is to have a sense of humor, laugh, call your friends laugh about your disastrous dates. Keep trying, keep a open mind, you never know…the next one could be the one…
And in my case if not, well…it could be my next blog!

Life and death are in the power of the tongue

Life and death are in the power of the tongue

How many times have I talked about what you put out will come back, the book The secret is a great example.
The bible first started this movement with “You will reap what you sow” Then the secret took that, put a different twist on it and ran with it.

Lousie Hayes, Dr.Wayne Dyer, Ester Hicks and many others have written hundreds of books on this subject.
Intentions, the law of attraction, the power of the tongue, there are many words used but it all means the same thing, what you put out, is what you will get back.

Listen to the words you use everyday, are you calling your children rebellious? Or are you calling them a great leader? Are you calling them weak and useless or are you speaking greatness over them by saying you have the power, you are a child of the most high God.

What are they hearing from you?
What are they believing about themselves…Are you telling them they are stupid, lazy and will never make anything of themselves or are you filling their minds with postive affirmations, like you can do anything you set your mind to, never give up, I have faith in you.. what are you depositing into them?

You have the power in your tongue to change your life..

Are you saying you can’t do that, are you saying that will never happen, I always have bad luck? Well, then you are speaking it into existence.
God made man in his image so that means you are a spirt man…you have the same power as God himself. You have the power to speak things into existence.

I am…
What are you saying after the word I am?
I am…sick
I am…broke
I am…broken

Then that is what you are…you are speaking it, giving life to it…

Maybe you need to be to speaking
I am…the head and not the tail
I am….healed
I am….blessed
I am….whole
I am….wealthy

When you start walking in the spirt, in the strenght that you know who you are and you know your power,
That I am…. created after God himself, that I have the power to speak things into existence, you will change your life.

Let me ask you this…Who are you hanging out with and what are they speaking?
Are they telling you “Man, you can never do that”

“Do you know where you came from?”

“We’re always going to be broke and uneducated, who do you think you are?”

You need to cut them off, you need to change your mind, change your thoughts, change your life.

What are you feeding yourself?

Unforgiviness
Pride
Jealousy
Ego
Hatred
Pettiness

Do you have all of these things in your life now? Are you holding on to them? Are they your crutch?

Starting feeding your soul
Forgiveness
Kindness
Gratefulness
Praise

Praise is the only thing you can do for God that he can’t do for himself because then he would be prideful, so if we are made in his image than why are we so prideful? Why can’t we forgive? Why can’t we speak these kind things over ourselves or others?

So today my friends, know that this is the year to take your dominion over favor and time, to change your life and what you speak.

Remember the power of life and death is in your tongue….speak wisely.

“Be the change you want to see”

Don’t settle

Don’t settle

I can’t understand why we settle, we settle for a job we don’t like, we settle for things and we settle for people and relationships. You cant find a job, so you settle for the first one, even though you hate it and it makes you miserable. People settle in relationships all the time.
I can’t get why some people don’t want to be alone so bad that they will settle on the first person that comes along, afraid they wont find someone else.

I have friends who are beautiful, smart, kind and funny settling for dirt bags, with no jobs, living off of them. While they are at work, these guys are sitting in their homes, eating their food, doing nothing to help out, really are you kidding me?
Or the woman who lets a lying, cheating man back over and over, getting hurt every time. Do you not have a mirror? Do you not see your value like I do? Do you not see this incredible women you are? Why are you settling?

Same goes for men, yes, I know good looking, rich, smart men who stay in a relationship where they are miserable, mistreated and belittled, again why? Why do they insist to keep going back when they know nothing changes when nothing changes?
Didn’t I just write about that yesterday?

They have so much love to give, they are great dad’s, great son’s, terrific friends, why do they not know their own self worth?

You need to wake up and see what we see, you need to know its okay to be alone rather than to be in a relationship that your dying in, trust me happiness is so much better. Yes, its scary out there, dating sucks and some nights its lonely as hell but the peace you feel inside is worth it all. If you truly have the one for you, it will be a fifty-fifty relationship, you will not be put down, taken advantage of, lied to or cheated on.

They will build you up, tell you, you can do anything, they will be your biggest cheerleader. They will be there for you to tell your secrets to, to depend on, you will feel loved and you will do the same for them. If they are not, then they are not the one, move on, get out, start over!
For most of us this is the second part of our lives, most of us have lost loved ones, I know I have lost too many and it makes it very real, that this time is precious and way too short to be unhappy. It could be over tomorrow and here you spent the last year,10 years, 20 years being unhappy, really? Not me! I have already done that, wasted 24 years in a misrable marriage, crying every night.

No, I want to live each day like its my last, I want this peace and joy I feel at this moment to last a lifetime. If I get to share this with a wonderful man that would incredible, but I refuse to settle, I will be alone for the rest of my life than settle. That’s a bold statement your thinking, yes, it is if you felt the peace and joy I feel and then have it taken away like I have recently, you would realize that you will do anything to get it back!

So, yes I will not be settling and neither should you my friend, look in the mirror, see what I see, know your worth and except nothing less than you deserve, life is too short! Fill your life with people you love and who love you, improve yourself, get interests and hobbies, volunteer or exercise, find new friends but fill it with things that make you happy!

So today my friends, always rememeber how many people love you and will be there for you, let go of the ones holding you back and then take the next step to be happy with yourself and know you will never settle again.

Be your own hero

Be your own hero

I read this saying this morning and I just had to write about it.
It went like this, don’t give your courage away to someone who can’t appreciate it, don’t give your patience away to people who will abuse it… don’t look for someone to be your hero, be your own hero.

Don’t let someone take over your life, your soul, don’t expect them to be your whole life, to fill your being with themselves, to change yourself to please them, to “complete” them.

No, you need to have someone who is filled already, who knows who they are, who is already complete and when you come together, its because you want to share this wonderful life you already have.

It’s like so many people who say when I lose weight then my life will start, when I get this job, the perfect person or the money… then my life will be complete and perfect.

You expecting something from the outside to do this for you, when you should be whole already, you should feel fulfilled on the inside of yourself, you don’t need another person to love you, you need to love yourself first.

Why do you think they tell you all the time on a plane to put the air mask on you first, then on your loved ones because if you have no air, you can’t help others.
If your not loving yourself,  if your not fulfilled, if your not happy within yourself nothing, no person, no amount of money, no job is going to do it.

I personally don’t want that responsibility, I don’t want someone to expect me to fill all their needs, to “complete” them, that’s not my job, I have to be my own hero…that is a job in it self. I can not, nor will I be responsible for another person’s happiness, that’s on you.

Believe me I tried for years, constantly trying to make other’s happy but it never worked, it didn’t matter what I did or didn’t do.
They were never happy nor would they ever be happy because I realized they weren’t happy within themselves. Until they changed themselves nothing I or anyone else  ever did would matter.

So today my friends remember, you are responsible for you, your health, your outlook on life, the things you want to change and your happiness.
Don’t wait for a hero to come along because they just might end up being a fake in tights, trust yourself, change your life, learn to be your own hero.

“Be the change you want to see”

The March heard around the world

The march heard around the world

On Saturday I was proud to march with  a friend who was a Marjory Stoneman Douglas alumni at the Parkland march for our lives ralley.
This was an emotional day for her and the many others who had went to that school. She knew the teachers that were killed, she walked those halls, had classes in the same rooms as so many people died, she couldn’t believe this could happen in her beloved school.

So many people felt the same way, how did this happen in this quiet little town, in one of the safest areas of South Florida? So many of us just can’t wrap our heads around it.

We sat there and listened to one after another, as each students describe what it was like to be there the day of the shooting. Each person that got up on the podium to speak, made us cry more. Telling of how they lost their best friend, watched their teacher or saw their brother get killed in front of their own eyes.
Yet through all the pain they showed a strenght, they showed a courage to never let this happen to another school again. The message was clear here in Parkland and all around the world on Saturday “Enough is enough”

These students took this in their own hands, they were going to start a revolution, they were going to change things because us as adults have not.
They planned the rallies all over the country, they through social media made their voices heard and they pulled off one of the biggest events we had seen in years!

They reported 800,000 people marched in Washington and 30,000 marched in Parkland, many other cities across the United States and the world also came together to march as well. This was something we have not seen since Martin Luther King days.

It was an emotional day to say the least and the most emotional part came when we walked past the school itself, there was a silence in the crowd. There were flowers and signs, candles and teddy bears and crosses for the 17 people who had lost their lives there. People walked by with tears streaming down their faces, feeling the heartbreak, thinking that you send your child to school and then you never see them again. It was overwhelming the emotion we all felt that day.

I was proud to be there with these young people, our next generation who will run the world soon and to know that they did all of this.
That yes they have the heart, the love, the compassion and the strenght to fight against injustice. Good for them and I am glad I was part of their history.

I see much hope in our future through your eyes and I am here to say keep it up, change the world, make it a better place, stand up for your rights and these injustices and never stop being the voice of others who no longer have one.
You are our future, make it a great one.

There are 365 verses in the Bible that says fear not

There are 365 verses in the bible that says fear not

I know that fear once ruled my life, I was stuck, I felt hopeless, I never thought my situation would ever change. It had gotten so bad that I wanted it to end not once but twice in my lifetime and when both times went awry, I figured that I had to try something different.

It was then I gave my life to God, it was then I realized that I couldn’t do this by myself. I could be filled with fear or I could be filled with hope, I couldn’t be happy and be sad, I couldn’t feel hopeless and feel gratitude at the same time. I had to make a choice, which was it? Do I believe or do I have fear?

I chose to believe, even through the storms, I believed when I started this business as I was getting divorced, not taking care of myself for years, listening to him telling me I was worthless and couldn’t make it without him, even when my own mother told me I couldn’t do it, I believed in God, in his words “Fear not”

I believed him, as I knew what I was doing on my own wasn’t working. I knew what worrying, fear and stress did to me, it kept me from sleeping, from eating, it made my hair fall out, made me rush to the hospital thinking I was dying, for the doctor’s to tell me that it was stress…now here’s a bill you can’t pay for thousands of dollars to add to that! Have a nice day.

No, none of that worrying or stress change my circumstances, so why did I keep holding on to fear? It was comfortable, it was what I knew, it kept me in check, kept me misrable.

One day I decided to “Fear not” for everything in my life…my business, my bills, my children, everything…
I chose to let go of fear and I chose to follow God, to believe he can do anything.
It has not been easy, believe me when you give your life over to God, most people think things are going to be perfect and nothing bad will ever happen again, ha!

Reality check, no… you will still be on your knees asking “Didn’t I do all the right things, pray, forgive, tithe, come to church, love one another yet why God, is this still happening to me?”

But the difference is you won’t fear the future, you won’t fear the unknown for you know he has you in his hands and he will take care of it on his time, not yours. There may be lessons you still need to learn as I’ve learned before you can move on, before your season comes.

Yes, I have been through many storms and even still the storms still come, since I’ve turned my life over to God but the difference is I no longer worry…I pray and let God worry.
I step out past my fears, into peace knowing he will take care of me. As long as I trust him and the 365 times he speaks of “Fear not” I am good.

So today my friends remember you can do it, you can step out on faith, past your fears, you can change your life, it’s all up to you….
