Tomorrow is not promised

{I shared this with the ladies in my private fb group yesterday and wanted to share this my readers and TrueheartSpeaks Community}

Tomorrow is not promised

Tomorrow is not promised and many of you are waiting on ‘tomorrow.’ I don’t know what your assignment is nor do I know who God has assigned to you but what I do know is that a friend died at 39 yesterday (April 29, 2016). Yes 39! I trust God’s timing and I pray my friend, William, knew the lord but what I love is the impact he made on those around him. I’m enjoying reading all of the posts on Facebook from those he knew.

Many of you have let the enemy lock you in a corner and make you think that your life, experiences, your flaws, your failures, your successes (because of course they can’t be that big or that fabulous compared to {insert person or trait you compare yourself to}) don’t mean a thing in this big ole world. Well honey let me tell you that YOU MATTER.

Let me tell you that if you are awake today, you have purpose and there is a reason you are still here. I don’t know why God called him home at 39 but I’m thankful to be here at 39. I don’t know what my tomorrow holds but I know I’m going to kick every door in and knock every wall down that the enemy would build to try to keep me from and sabotage what God has for me.

Some of you are saying “I’m too young” and others are saying “I’m too old.” Well many are saying William was too young to die and my question is…

Are you too young or too old to live?

I would say NO.

I would say that today is the perfect day for you to start being intentional with the life God has given you. Today is the last day of our monthly discussion on the topic of fear {every month we talk about new topic in the #iSpeakLife Society} but it won’t be the last time we will talk about it. Fear has paralyzed many of us into inaction. We talk a good game but do nothing!

I know you loved prince’s music and you thought he was the best thing since sliced bread but my question is what will folks have to say about you.

  • Can you say you’re giving it your all?
  • Can you say you’re putting 120% in?
  • Can you say that your living instead of existing?

No more excuses.

No more reasons why you can’t.

Stop complaining and do something.

God has given us EVERYTHING we need to get started today or to keep going if we’ve already taken the plunge.

Either way… As big as they may seem, nothing and no problem, challenge, or struggle is bigger than not waking up tomorrow to do what you keep saying you’re going to do today.

Let’s go!

Let get it!

Let’s turn this world (whichever part God has assigned you to) upside down.

Let’s move in spite of our fears!

Let’s make some things happen.

Let’s leave a legacy our family and friends and most important God would be proud of.


Tomorrow is NOT promised and
many of you are waiting on ‘tomorrow.’

Your assignment:

Think about those things you’ve wanted to do but kept putting off. Create some time to DO THEM! You know those family and friends you’ve been saying you’re going to call or visit, create time to CALL or VISIT THEM!  You know that ‘thing’ you’ve saying you wanted to do or start, DO IT! Start making time for the things that matter most to you and then start doing it. Stop waiting until ‘tomorrow.’ Now here is the kicker… don’t just make plans, I want you to follow through on them.

Until Next Time…

Hug + Love + Prayers

Do Something Different

August Life Purpose Coaching Call

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THIS MESSAGE

Since life has been really crazy, there’s no video for this message but just a few words shared from my heart to yours.  These last few months have been really crazy (in a good way) and in spite of everything going on, I am learning to be flexible, adaptable, coachable and teachable.  I am learning to embrace all things NEW in my life.  Things that I’ve spoken into existence that are now manifesting in my life.  Doors that God is opening that I couldn’t even imagine.

I’ve said it before and it bears me saying it again… if you want different, you must think, speak, do and be different.  You cannot not expect different results doing the same thing over again.  Maybe you are in a new season of your life but you still trying to bring old ways into this season… well if you haven’t already figured it out, IT DOESN’T WORK.

When you enter a new season of your life you must bring new ways of doing into that new season.  You can’t expect to go the next level with now level living.  I am becoming more and more clear about my purpose and I know that as a life purpose generator and purpose provoker, my job is to ignite those dead or dormant dreams and help you to bring them to life.  My goal is to help you add purpose to your life.  If there’s no purpose in life… what’s the point of living, right?

And the way I see it, since God didn’t create anything without a clear intention on why and how He intended to use it, you have to know that you too have purpose.  You were created with purpose, for a purpose.  You were created in purpose and on purpose.  You have to know and believe this.

So as I am writing this, maybe the first thing you have to do differently is, shift your mindset to thinking differently about yourself and who God created you to be.  You have to start meditating on those things that speak to how God sees you and not how you see yourself. Especially if what you see isn’t congruent with how your Creator sees you.

I posted this last night on my fb page:

Just thinking about my life and purpose and the lives I’ve touched over the years because I said yes to purpose and destiny. You never know whose life you will change but trust that if God is in the mix, He’s got your back and will most assuredly affirm you when others won’t. Say yes and be open to the great things God has in store for you. Trust me I’m nowhere near perfect but I was willing and available to be used. God isn’t looking for you to be perfect. He’s looking for you to just say yes!!!

For some of your reading this, maybe what you need to do different is SAY YES.  You’ve been saying no for so long that saying YES is so unfamiliar.  I challenge you to say YES to your life, your purpose, and all that God has for you.

August is my birthday and it is the 8th month. Eight (8) is the number of new beginnings.

Could you use a do over… are there some things in your life that you need to do away with so you can start anew or even do things in a new way?

Tomorrow I will be hosting this month’s Life Purpose Coaching Call. You can get the details here: www.trueheartspeaks.com.  I encourage you to be on this month’s call because I am doing something NEW…. as a birthday gift from me to you, I am opening the call.

YEP… you got it… you don’t have to register since I will be sharing the call in details in this call.  Now keep in mind if you can’t make it, you will want to join my Catalyst Club Inner Circle to get access to the recording.

Here are the call-in details:
Call-in number: 1-218-632-0369
Access Code: 763180#

Make a choice to do something different today!

Until next time… add purpose to your life.

Help… I’m Overwhelmed!!!

Are you feeling Overwhelmed?

Are you ready to just throw in the towel?

Is life becoming a bit much lately?

overwhelmed

Over the last week or two, I’ve had conversations with a number of individuals who are feeling overwhelmed, anxious and just downright stressed to the point of no return.

Can you relate?  

Have you ever felt so overwhelmed that you just wanted to throw in the towel on your dreams, your business, your job, your marriage and maybe even life? 

You just felt like it was TOO MUCH for you to deal with.

While one individual was feeling overwhelmed about her new responsibilities as an entrepreneur in addition to working on her PhD, another was feeling overwhelmed about her responsibilities as a new wife and mother and how to adjust and balance it with a demanding work schedule.  Then there was another who was overwhelmed with EVERYTHING, her business, her marriage, and her overall life.  I imagine that those of you reading this have felt overwhelmed at some point in your life.  Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed right this minute.

Well I’ve been there and those are the days (I must admit) that I just shut down.  When I felt myself getting to that point, I would just go to bed, lay on the couch or just watch shows of nothingness on TV.  Other times, I would recharge, re-assess, and rejuvenate myself to get back on track.  Over the years, as I learned to better cope with my stress and anxiety, I learned that sometimes I just had too much going on and at other times I wasn’t prioritizing well enough.

Can you relate?

What I am going to share with you are things that I shared with my clients listed above.  It is my hope that these strategies you can immediately put to use to deal with your overwhelm as well as to help keep you from getting overwhelmed.  I’ve also used most if not all of them at some point or another.

Keep in mind that this list isn’t exhaustive… feel free to add to it in the comments section.

  1. First you must know that this is not God’s intention for you or for your life.  You are not supposed to be overwhelmed.  His word says for those who are heavy laden, He will give you rest if you come unto Him (Matt 11:28).  His word also says, that he will be give you praise for a spirit of heaviness (Isaiah 61:3).  It also says to cast your cares on Him for He cares for you (I Peter 5:7).
  2. Next take a deep breath.  Breathe through it.  Sometimes taking a few minutes to take some really deep breaths in and out help to ease your level of anxiety and give you a moment to get yourself together.
  3. Take a Mental Health day.  Take a break from everything and just tend to you and your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health.  Rest your mind, rest your body, and rest your spirit.  If you have sick days at work that you NEVER use…. it might be TIME you put them to use.
  4. Keep going and don’t freeze.  Don’t let your overwhelm keep you in a constant state of paralysis… where you think about your particular issue so much that you do nothing about it. (been there done that)
  5. Go back to what worked the last time.  If you’ve been here before, what worked that last time?  What strategies did you use and implement the last time it worked.  Do it again!  If it’s doing a brain dump and writing everything out in your journal, screaming and having a good cry, writing a letter, praying, taking a day off to get yourself together. Whatever it is, take some time to do what has worked for you in the past. Remember, if you were able to get through it before you can get through it again.
  6. Pray & Meditate. Although this should be first, this list is in no particular order.  When you feel yourself getting full of anxiety, fear, worry, and doubt… PRAY.  Philippians 4:67 says: Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. As I stated in #1, it is NOT God’s intention for you to be stressed and overwhelmed.
  7. After you’ve prayed and had your meditation.  Read God’s word and other positive self affirming sayings or readings that affirm the awesomeness that you are.
  8. Quiet all of the noise in your head.  Try to get to a quiet place to get clear from the clutter.
  9. Take a walk.  Sometimes a walk to clear your mind will give you answers to everything you need as it relates to your anxiety, stress and overwhelm.  It helps you to put things into perspective, clear your mind and it also removes you from the environment that may be causing you to be overwhelmed.
  10. Exercise. It is said that exercise can actually calm anxiety.  By exercising you are clearing your mind and body from toxins that may be cluttering them. It also gets your body and juices running.  By exercising, you may actually get clarity on what’s causing you to be overwhelmed.
  11. As suggested in #4 as something you may have already done, do a brain dump or journal.  A brain dump is when you just empty everything you have in your head out on paper.  There’s no rhyme, reason or rhythm to how it comes out.  You just write it as it you are thinking it.  As for journaling, it’s the same although most times your thoughts are little more concise and clear.
  12. Take some things off of your plate.  Are you doing too much?  Are you saying YES to everyone and everything?  STOP IT!  You can’t be all things to all people.  Start learning to say NO.
  13. Here are a few extra bonuses:  Have your moment, have a good ole cry, or have a really good laugh. One of the individuals I spoke to had intentionally called me to get her a good cry in but I ended up making her laugh so hard that she decided that a cry wasn’t what she needed but it was a good laugh.

Before I go, here is a post I found when preparing for this week’s post:  Ten Bible verses for when you feel overwhelmed.  I hope you enjoy them.

If this post has been helpful, please be sure to share your thoughts in the comment section and on my facebook page.  Also, feel free to share what has worked for you when you are overwhelmed.

Until Next Time…

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Serenity Saturday – Motivational Minute 364

It’s Serenity Saturday!!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Just say NO! — That’s right it’s just that simple today.

Many times our level of stress and anxiety is increased because we don’t know how to say NO.  We keep piling things on top of each other and adding more and more to our plate without ever resting or taking time for ourselves.  If our creator was smart enough to rest on the 7th day after working for 6 days, then why on earth can’t we learn to rest.  Sometimes the only way you can rest and take time for yourself, is to say NO.  Self-Care is so important if you desire to be available for those you care about.  You can only give what you have and if you don’t have it, what are actually giving?

Take some time to put YOU first. 

Do something for YOU.

Take care of YOU. 

 

YOUR TURN… on this Serenity Saturday, tell me when you have had to say NO to others to say YES to yourself?  If you are having a hard time saying no, share why you have difficulty in this area.  What type of support would you need to be more proactive in your efforts to saying NO to others so you can say YES to yourself?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!
