Unless you’ve been thsre

Unless you’ve been there..

Every one of us has been through things in our lives, divorce, death of a loved one, or multiple loved ones, sickness, deceit, even back stabbing by so called friends or family.

Some of us have been lied to, cheated on, been through drug and alcohol addiction, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, rape and even more incredibly traumatic events.

But how can I relate to you if I didn’t go through it? How can I be a comfort to you and give you advise if I don’t know your pain, if I personally didn’t know or go through your struggle.

I can’t tell you I know how you feel, because I can’t possibly know how you feel if I haven’t been there and that’s a fact. Yes, I can be sympathetic, I can be there and listen but I couldn’t imagine what your feeling unless I once felt that pain in my life.

As much as I would have liked to have a “perfect” life without all my hardships and tragedies, if I did I wouldn’t be able to sit here and write this blog.

I wouldn’t be able to touch so many of you who write to me and tell me how my words helped them. I would just be giving lip service to something I knew nothing about and you would be able to see right through me.

Since I’ve started making my YouTube videos again, so many people lately, have said the same thing to me, that I am real and raw, that is what makes me so relatable because they can see I’ve been there, I’ve been hurt, I know addiction, I know the pain of a abuisve relationship, the fact I’ve picked losers over and over, I know what the bottom looks like and so they can relate.

I had to go through all I did so that I could help others, so that I can say I know how you feel at this moment but I am here to tell you that it will be okay. That you will get through it, even though it seems like you’ve hit rock bottom, even when you can’t see any light, it will be okay, I’ve been there too.

I know it seems hopeless now but I survived and you can too, just hold on and know your not alone, you are not the only one suffering or has suffered.
It will get better, it can and will be incredible if you just hold on to the tiniest mustard seed of hope.

How would I know it will get better if it hasn’t already happened to me? How would I know how it feels to hold on, to believe and to literally visualize a better life for myself and then have it all come to pass, if I didn’t do it myself.

I needed to go through all of this to be able to comfort others just as you need to go through your struggles so that you may help someone else out.

So today my friends, remember you needed to go through all you’ve been through for a reason, you may not be able to see it now, there may only be blackness and storms, you may be barely able to breathe, but eventually the sun will come out again, there will be a rainbow after the storm and you will know your strength and be able to say…I’ve been there…let me help you…this is my story…this is my testimony, I’ve been there.

Single mom’s

Single mom’s

I have to talk about this subject as I don’t think we as single mom’s get enough credit for what we do.
This is also a shout out to my single dad’s who are holding it down as well.

This is the hardest job you’ve ever had, to put someone else’s needs above yours, to give of yourself all the time and not feel appreciated. To do it all and not feel like it’s enough or second guess yourself,  asking did you do the right thing?

I am blessed to have a community of single mom’s in my life, amazing women who are holding it down despite their circumstances.
We help each other out, we watch each other kids, we help out when money is tight and food is low.
We are there to talk with, to cry with, to ask what are we doing wrong?

We support each other and uplift each other because we know what an incredibly hard job it is we are doing.

We have to work, some of us multiple jobs, then pick up kids, come home to cook dinner, clean up, do homework, give baths, read bedtime stories and put the kids down. Our day is far from over as then we are straightening up the house, doing laundry, paying bills and getting things ready for the next day. When we wake up we are still tired but there is no rest for the weary as we are it. We have to get it together to get them up, dressed and fed before we drop them off to school and make it to work on time.

For some of us, we have downgraded from a higher life style and had to make due. Some hardly get child support like me or get none at all. But no matter what we make it work, we stretch a dollar till it screams, we magically make dinner appear out of nothing and we smile like we have it all together. At night we cry in our pillows as we are so very tired and feel like the world is falling in on us yet in the morning we put a smile on because we must be strong for the sake of our kids.

We try to date with what little spare time we have but the pickings are slim and we have to always remember that our children come first and who we let into their lives, effects them.
So it is extremely hard to do this, especially for us Christian mom’s who are looking for a Christian man, see that is like finding a needle in a haystack! Yet we hold on to faith that one day a good man will come into our lives.

Even for single mom’s like me who have older children it doesn’t stop, they need books for college, gas for their car, help with homework…still! They are still living at home but with a “grown-up” mind that you have to deal with and still set your boundaries as a parent.

It never stops and it never gets easier, it’s a thankless job that gives the most love. It is a rollercoaster ride of laughs, ass whoopings, smiles, aggravation and amazing love like you’ve never felt before.

So today my friends, remember that being a single mom is the hardest job in the world, help one out today, take them some groceries, treat them to a day at the spa, watch their children for a few hours so they can have some me time. You never know how much they are struggling as they always look like they have it together, any act of kindness will give them hope to make it through another day.

To all my single mom’s out there, I love you, you are my hero’s, you are amazing, beautiful, smart women who I look up to each and every day and I am blessed to call you my friends…
Thank you for doing all that you do ♡♡♡

How to defeat fear in your life

How to defeat fear in your life.

Fear is:
F= false
E= evidence
A= appearing
R= real

That is what fear is, its that small voice in the back of you head saying “You cant do that, are you crazy?”
“That will never work?

It will overrule everything else if you let it, it will get you to believe it is real. See faith needs no evidence to know that its real. Fear will have to present evidence that you will fail.

Faith is the confidence, the assurance of things not seen, you cant see God but yet you believe. You say to yourself, I don’t know when it is going to happen, but I know it will. I don’t have to see it to believe it.

Fear says “See there is nothing happening in your life, you have a generational curse on your life.You can never accomplish that”

So how do we make sense of so many testimonies about things that make no sense at all, like a persons mortgage getting paid off, a business being giving to you, this actually just happened to a friend of mine, someone just gave him their business that makes 50k a year!
Our praise leader being healed after a sickness in his throat. Someone who has stage 4 cancer and goes back to the doctor and its gone. I am the perfect example, getting a mortgage when I had no business to, getting a home for 40,000 less then every home on the market…come on now…these were all God stories.

It doesn’t make sense, how are you going to do this? How did that happen? You are dumbfounded, there is no answer, you can’t explain it, it is like a miracle.

When you hear something, listen! Don’t doubt, don’t question, see this is our problem, we are trying to process this through a human mind. This my friends is God..

We ask how can he cure the blind? Feed thousands with 3 fish and 2 loafs of bread? Turn water into wine? Defeat thousands with only hundreds?

He is God, he can and will do anything, nothing is impossible and the only thing he asks from you is that you believe….

Fear says your not going to make, it is based on the facts, it tells you don’t believe in what God says.

It pounds in your head… your broke, you’ll never get anywhere, you are too old to find a mate, you will never make. Look at your parents and grandparents, you have no chance, why are you even trying.
It will tell you, look how long you’ve been serving God, where are your blessings? Your God is not answering you, give it up already!

Faith is when your refuse to believe in false evidence, God told you, I can move moutains, I can produce results in your life, even if you suffer, even in your loss, you will recover it all in the end, just believe.

Believe that sooner or later it will be your season, that you will get it all back, trust God because he is able! You don’t have to see it to believe it, that is faith and that is how you defeat fear in your life.

So today my friends, take a stand against fear, stop being paralyzed by fear, stop listening to those voices in your head and start listening to voice in your heart that says have faith, believe that all things are possible, that I can do anything because I am the child of the most high God! You got this, I believe in you, you can do this let go of fear and grab on to faith!

Not all men are dogs

Not all men are dogs

Okay, really we as women need to stop this, not all men are dogs. Yes, we have had our share of doggie men, men who lied, cheated, ghosted us, who said they wanted a relationship but clearly didn’t. Men who treated you like a booty call, who made you feel like you weren’t enough, didn’t text you or treated you like an afterthought but by no means is that all men.

I tell my girlfriends all the time, don’t lump all men into the suckie men category. I know good men. Hell, I was raised by good men, both my real father and step father were the best men you could meet. My “Big daddy” Sam, a close family friend was an amazing man who was in my life since I was 5.

I have incredible male friends who are great fathers, who are loving and faithful, who are also wondering where are all the good women.

I have guy friends I can call day or night and say “Hey I need you” and they would be there for me. Men who are good sons, who help out their family, who will drop everything when your tire is flat or you need a helping hand. Men who never miss a dance recital, a school event or time with their children.
I have ex’s who are still in my life, hell one even gave my daughter a car! My ex fiance even invited me to his wedding. They are great guys, who for one reason or another it didn’t work out between us, that doesn’t diminish the fact that they are good men.

There are plenty of men who are shitted on by their ex’s, when the women try to use their children against them, when all they want to do is the right thing.

I know Godly men, men who are committed to finding a good women, men who are hard working, who have aspirations and dreams and are willing to work together to achieve them. Men that cook, clean and are thoughtful, these are the diamonds in the rough.

Yes, I know there are good men, I refuse to lump them together with the losers I had picked (See the past tense had picked, not anymore!)
It’s like condemning all the Muslims for a act that a few did…it makes no sense.

I also will not close my heart off, like so many of my girlfriends because I’ve been hurt, I want a relationship with a good man, hell I deserve one after all the frogs I’ve kissed.

So I will continue to try to weed out the bad ones to find that someone special and until I do I will be the cheerleader for the good men that are out there, looking for us…the good women, because not all men are dogs.

Why are you so negative?

Why are you so negative

I remember when I was working at this job, we had a women who would come in and every time we would see her she never had a nice thing to say.

She was forever negative,
“Beautiful day out today huh?” We would say and her response would be
“Whats so beautiful about it? There’s too much pollen in the air, my allergies are acting up, I had to turn my heat on and now there was something wrong with it! Of course, yet another thing that will cost me money. Just like my car, that mechanic cost me so much money, they are such thieves always ripping you off….”

And on and on and on…
at this point we had already tuned her out and were sorry we even asked the question.
Now I know your all laughing because you too know someone like this, don’t you?

Yes, there are so many negative people out there. They can’t seem to find one nice thing to say, I know that personally as my grandmother who lived with us was just like this, day after day, after day I had to endure her negative attitude.

I use to pray “Please God don’t make me like her” and God answered my prayers, not only am I not negative like her but I probably am one of the most positive people you will meet! Thank you God!

I dont get what makes someone be so negative, your alive, there’s your first thing to be positive about. You woke up in a home, you slept in a bed, you had electric and hot water for your shower and your coffee, you have food and maybe even a car to get you to your job.You have a job… Wow isn’t that more than so many people around the world have?

And yet your still not happy, you still feel like you have something to complain about. Really? How about you walked to the bathroom, you have both legs that work, you weren’t dragging an IV behind you or better yet having to use a bed pan.

You heard the alarm, you opened your eyes and saw the sunrise, you had vocal cords to yell at your dog. Does none of this deserve a blessing or at least some sort of praise?

How many people in this world that are sick and dying, who would trade places with you in a heart beat? Yet your still complaining about stupid stuff!

I don’t have time for negative people anymore,
I have a limited time here on earth and I want to enjoy every second, I want to surround myself with people who appreciate it as much as I do. So if I avoid you, defreind you or stop taking your calls its because I have no time for your stupidity. You are so blessed and you don’t even know it and as many times as I’ve tried to tell you, you still don’t get it and I am really sorry for you.

You are missing out on so many wonderful things, because you are too busy complaining. I live my life being grateful and feeling blessed each and every day, I live in the moment, I chose this, it is a choice! My choice.

See I saw first hand what being negative did to a person, how it made you angry and bitter, never happy about anything, how no one wanted to be around that and I chose not to be like that. I see my ex holding on to hatred, being petty, angry and bitter, something he clearly inherited from his mother.
I feel sorry for him, for this is his own karma, he is inflicting on himself.
I chose to live my life in a state of gratefulness, I chose to be happy, to feel blessed, to give thanks each and every day.

So today my friends, remember you can chose to be positive or you can chose to be negative it’s your choice, but remember to chose wisely as your decisions affect everyone around you.

Inspiring others

Inspiring other’s

Recently I got a new follower on Instagram and she messaged me to tell me she stumbled across my page and that she had to reach out and tell me how inspiring she thought I was.

I was humbled to say the least, everytime someone reaches out to me, I feel the same way. I am blessed that people actually take their time to read my blogs, watch my videos or follow me on social media.
I am especially shocked when so many men tell me that, as I originally started this blog to empower women. I guess raw truth is universal and touches everyone, either way I am truly grateful for all my readers and followers.

She asked why and how I do what I do, I wrote back to tell her I know what it means for someone to reach out, as someone did to me when I was at my lowest point and how that littrrally changed my life as I was planning to kill myself that night.

I know what a kind word, or how proud I am of you, can do this. Saying to a person, never give up, you can make it…can mean to them. You might think it’s small and nothing but to someone who maybe was put down all the time, someone who is on the edge, you never know how that may change their outlook, their day or their life.

I know I didn’t go through all the shit I went through for no reason, no…it was for this testimony, it was so I can pass this on to others, this is my purpose.

So yes, I will keep uplifting other women, I will constantly tell them how proud I am of them, how beautiful they are, how smart they are and that they are my hero’s because we all need to do this, we all need to build each other up, not tear each other down.

I can’t stand nor do I watch any of these reality shows where the “women”
(which I say lightly because real women don’t do this, only little girls that have never grown up) beat each other down, call each other names, cut each other with horrible words and actions. No, I no time for such nonsense, this is not what I want to teach the next generation to think, that it is okay…its Not! And it will never be!!

That is what is wrong in today’s society, everyone thinks they are better than someone else, we all bleed red when did we forget that?
When did we forget compassion, tolerance and love? We need to show each other, show strangers that we are all one and when one falls, we all fall.
When one succeeds, we all succeed.

We need to live on the pay it forward notion, we pay one act of kindness forward, then they pass it forward and so on and so on…just like that old shampoo commerical (Okay that was going wayyyy back!
Millennium’s just YouTube it)

So today my friends remember, it only takes one act of kindness, one word of encouragement, one smile to change a person’s life. Be that change, be that motivation, be an inspiration, inspire other’s and as I always say at the end of every blog….

“Be the change you want to see”

Clearing out my space

 

Clearing out my space

The other night as I was speaking to a friend, she prophesied over my life. She told me God had big things in store but I had to do some work before this could happen.

I already knew this, I knew he put in my spirit to start these videos, he wanted me to close these dead end doors for good, to know my self worth, to be able to walk the walk and talk the talk to my readers and not just do, “the do as I say, not as I do routine”

I decided to clear out my home as well, I smugged and anointed my home and I prayed for clarity and peace in my life. I gave thanks for the lessons I have learned, even the ones that hurt the most as they all make us grow into better people.

But I can tell you afterwards, temptation came out and after me.
The man I fell hard for came back at me…but I kept getting all of these signs, memes like “keep the door closed, walk away”
I kept hearing songs on the radio, about not going back, friends suddenly calling and speaking on this topic, it was wild.

Eventually the signs overwhelmed me and I came to my senses to leave it where it needs to be…in the past.
This is not what God has for me, I am waiting for one that values me and love me unconditionally. I need not to convince a man of my worth, take crunbs or be an afterthought.

I have other things I must focus on, lessons I must learn so I can teach them to others.
I have this purpose and I know this as I keep getting signs for it as well.
So then why are we so hard headed? Why do we want what we want, when we want it?
Why do we chase things that are clearly no good for us? When so many friends and family keep telling us things we already know, yet we have that need to get burned one more time, why? Because the last 5 times didn’t hurt enough and it takes that 5th time to realize “Shit, that hurt”

No, I have big plans for my life, God has big plans for my life and I will no longer sell myself short, I will no longer let people who are not worthy take up space in my life. You need to know your worth, you need to know what benefits you and what is there to use you and hurt you.

You have intuition for a reason, use it, trust it, it will never lie to you. You need to believe what others that love you say about you, that your kind, that your a good man or woman, that your a ride or die chick.
That there aren’t many men like you out there, these are the qualities others see and love in you. So then why is it so hard for us to believe them and know them in ourselves?
These are the things we need to change, to walk away from in the beginning as soon as we see them, not to stay to try to convince the other person what we clearly are.

There is a season for everything and my season is coming, I know it, I believe it as sure as I am breathing. I will wait, I will listen, I will value myself enough not to discount myself for someone who is clearly not worthy of what I am offering, you also need to believe this, so we will go through this journey together.

I want to thank everyone who has reached out to me, especially since I’ve been doing my weekly videos. We are walking this path together, I will try to inspire you just as you inspire me to do better, we are not perfect but we are worthy.

So today my friends remember to clear out your space, mentally, physically and spiritually. You need to stand up tall, own your self worth and be able to tell others who don’t, it’s time to leave, that there is no room in your life for them, as you need the room for someone who will come and love and appreciate all you have to offer, start today by clearing out your space.

God’s sentence for our lives

God’s sentence on our lives

God has allowed us to go through many things in life, all of these things we went through were to make us stronger and to make us realize that we are have anointing over our lives.

See a sentence is the final decision imposed by the highest authority…God.
He has already imposed a  sentence for your life, for it to be great, to be prosperous and to be remarkable.

The word greatest means, to be remarkable, powerful, influencing…
That is God’s final decision for you and your life.

My bishop spoke of his story where he wanted to kill himself as a teenager. He had got the chair, tied a rope around the ceiling and stood on the chair just about to kick it out from under him, when God intervened by having his friend call him.

He stopped to see what his friend wanted, when he realized that his friend was not going away, he went off with his friend to help him and later on found out an old blind man in his neighhood had killed himself also by hanging.

See God knew the sentence he had over his life, that one day he would become a pastor, that his story would encourage others, that he would one day become the light for others.

You need to realize that the anointing flows all through your life, the anointing of salvation because he has delivered you. There are many types of anointings he has spoken over you.

There is the anointing of ministry, when you serve God, when you offer your help, when you give of yourself to others.

Then there is the anointing for dominion, you are not a number, you are marked for greatness. God has control over your circumstances,
you have God covering you. This is not about religion, it’s about a relationship between you and God.

God wants you to be the light of the world, he wants you to go out there and tell others of your testimony, to show people what real faith looks like. Faith in the mist of the storm, faith when you can’t see the light at the end of tunnel but you put it in God’s hands and you no longer worry.

He already knows your end result but is testing you, to see if you will hold on until you get there. He needs you to be his mouthpiece to others, showing them what faith looks like.

So today my friends remember, your life already has a sentence, it is from the highest authority, he is just waiting on you, to activate your faith.

Thank you for your service

Veterans Day special
Thank you for your service.

Today is a day we thank the brave men and women that serve or had served in our armed forces. It’s sad that in today’s world we need a designated day to thank people that we care about or to tell them we are proud of them.

We should tell them every  chance we get, there is nothing that warms my heart more then walking in a airport and telling or hearing someone tell a soldier in uniform thank you…those simple two words that mean so much to them.

These brave men and women CHOOSE to fight for our country, they don’t have to, they wanted to! Big difference!
I come from a military family, my both dad’s (my step father Nunu and my real dad Louie) served in the Air force and the Navy  respectively. All of my dad’s siblings served, my cousins served. My Nunu marched in every Veterans and Memorial day parade in uniform until he could no longer walk and then he sat in his wheelchair in uniform, saluting the others that walked as he once had. I know what it is like to be a proud American family that served it’s country.

Many of my friends and boyfriend’s served as well, this is something to be proud of, for each and every one of us should stand up and thank them as much and as often as we can.

People treated them with disrespect because it wasn’t “our war” that was not up to them, they serve the way their country needs them to serve without question.
What kind of country let’s our service people come home and get no medical care? No jobs? No mental care after all they seen and done, things we could never imagine, just to keep us free.

Our senators and house representatives get lifetime pay for what?sitting on their ass’s in Washington? No our service people should be getting that! They deserve it, they fought, they deserve our love, our respect and our funds.

So today my friends don’t wait for a “special “day to thank the brave men and women that serve to keep us free, make every day be a “special ” day because it is….you are free because of them, special enough?

Thank you all for your service, thank you for keeping me free so that I may worship who I chose, that I may chose my president and be able to write what I feel each and every day….thank you…thank you..

My Pintrest house

My Pinterest house

Recently my daughter’s boyfriend said my house looked like a picture on Pinterest. I thought that was the best compliment I could receive.

I dreamed about this home forever, I put pictures of it on my vision board, I imagined how it would look and feel.

If you don’t know my story, I was in a verbally abusive marriage for 24 years, the tension in our home was overbearing.
We walked on eggshells, he sucked out all the fun, all the time. I was miserable, I hated my life and even though I had all the toys, all the money, it didn’t make me happy.

I prayed about one day having a home filled with peace, with joy and happiness. I wanted all that entered to feel like home, to feel the love, to want to stay a while as no one ever felt that way in my old home.

It was a long road to get here, we left with only a mattress and personal items. We all slept on that mattress on the floor, we had nothing as I left it all behind with the bad memories.

This was a fresh start and I didn’t care how long it took, this was going to be excalty like my pictures on my vision board.

So for months I went to every yard sale, every consignment shop. I stripped and sanded and painted every piece of furniture with love.

Little by little it came together, little by little it started to feel like the home I dreamt about.

But it’s not about what my home looks like it’s about how it feels, it’s about my girls being able to have their friends over. It’s about the laughter, the joy and the fun we always feel in our home.

It’s about us cooking together, dancing in the kitchen, singing out of tune and sitting around the table with loved ones, enjoying each other’s company.

It’s about friends stopping over whenever, sitting and having a glass of wine, living life in the moment.

Things I didn’t have before as no one like the atmosphere in my old home and never wanted to come by.
All these things that I am so very grateful for now, things I’ve dreamed about and prayed about, now have come to pass.

There is never a day that I don’t walk in the door that I am not grateful for this home, for this life I now have. So yes, saying my home reminds him of a Pinterest picture is the best complement I could get, as it’s not about how it looks, it’s about how it feels when you enter. It’s about the love you feel, it’s about what I envisioned, that all has come to pass, I put it out there and it has happened.

So today my friends remember you can have anything you set your mind to, dream it, put it on a vision board, envision it as if it already is, work hard, never stop believing and you too can have your own “Pinterest” home.
