I’m EXHAUSTED

Confession!!!!

I’m tired y’all. No for real for reeaaalll. Since the middle of December, I’ve been going 100 miles a minute. Between my full time job, running my Destiny Inspired business, raising two girls, managing my oldest daughter’s modeling, hosting events, attending/supporting other events, ghostwriting blogs for others, managing clients and more. Whewwww

Ya girl is TIRED!

I had to share that. I love posting all the great stuff, but I also love the behind the scenes.

Oftentimes people ask me how I do it all since I do way more than what is posted. The answer is that I just get it done BUT this last couple weeks, I am feeling EXHAUSTED. My 43 year old body is like HOLD UP SISTA.

So, I’m hoping my glasses make me look NOT SO EXHAUSTED. lol

This Super Mommy is Super Tired!
I will be scaling back and catching up on my nap times.

My SELF-CARE goals for this week include getting more sleep, enjoy some coloring in a coloring book and treat myself to a bouquet of flowers to celebrate ME just because.

Thank you Lord for some good restful sleep tonight to prepare for my week.

Good night peeps. May you have RESTFUL sleep too.

Are you feeling fatigue and ready to step up your self-care?

Here are a few self-care ideas:

Last week, I treated myself to a 60-minute full body massage and I will do that again soon.
Treat yourself. Love yourself.

Have you considered it may be time for a HARD RESET in life?

Are you familiar with the term ‘HARD RESET’? “A hard reset, also known as a factory reset or master reset, is the restoration of a device to the state it was in when it left the factory. In other words, a “hard reset” is when you hold down a power button, click on an option to wipe out all of your data, or perform some other function (sometimes involving a paper clip) that returns the device back to the state it was in when it was brand new.” (SOURCE: Tech Target & Inc dot com)

I’m not saying to wipe out your existence or wipe out your memories and the things that have shaped you.

I’m saying there are times when life has thrown you some curve balls and challenges that have CHANGED your persona but NOT for the better. I’m saying break ups, divorce, grief, loss, toxic environments, etc can harden us.
A hard reset will help you get UNSTUCK. Make sense?

For instance, I have a woman in mind right now. She is not who she was before she got married then divorced. In fact, she is almost unrecognizable. The devastation of her “shattered dreams” including other pain and grief has turned her from a beautiful, outgoing, and fashionable woman to now a broken, closed off, untrusting woman who tries to hide in plain sight. Life has dealt her hard balls that she has yet to recover from.

My point is, like computers and cell phones, some times we need to hit the HARD RESET button in our lives in order to return to a ‘brand new’ state of mind.
You say that it is impossible to hit hard reset, I say
For with God NOTHING will be impossible.” Luke 1:37

Some times we need to do a hard reset of our inner circles, toxic environment, stressful lifestyles or of our own pessimistic mindsets.


Yesterday I posted some self-care ideas. Your hard reset begins with giving yourself some TIME AWAY and getting back to SELF-CARE.

A hard reset is not easy but is POSSIBLE and NECESSARY.


JUST DO IT! HIT THAT HARD RESET IN YOUR LIFE TO FEEL BRAND NEW AGAIN!

Change Your Perspective

Sometimes you just need to change the way you look at a a situation.

This concept of changing MY perspective still is not the easiest thing to do.

Sometimes the message is short and sweet…

CHANGE the direction you are looking at a situation with simple, yet effective, adjustments, like:

1) Focus on the positive

2) Look at the big picture

3) Remember trouble doesn’t last always.

4) Focus on any lessons learned and wisdom gained.

5) Until your situation is worked out, get busy helping someone else in need.

Your perspective will not change overnight, however, applaud yourself for every attempt you make to CHANGE for the better.

Instead of waiting for change, BE THE CHANGE.

Change YOUR Perspective

Is there a situation at home, work, church etc. where you need a shift in the way you look at things?

One more time

CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE

On My Heart

Having a smile on your face doesn’t equal having peace. So many times we have a smile on our faces to mask pain or anguish. Lord knows I’ve done it.

So, Father God, I come before you now thanking you and praising you for who you are. Lord, I pray that you would remove the spirit of heaviness, despair, and the desire to give up. It is on my heart that someone needs a breakthrough RIGHT NOW.

Lord, someone reading this feels they cannot bear anymore bad news. Lord lift every burden. In fact, someone feels they are drowning and is questioning their reason to live. The blood of Jesus is against any feelings of suicide. Lord, this is urgent.

As I sit on this lightrail commuting to work, I know YOU can FIX what needs fixing. Lord touch us. Lord we need YOUR peace. Lord we need YOUR healing.

I just keep hearing DON’T GIVE UP on yourself, your dreams, and PLEASE DON’T GIVE UP ON GOD!!!

So, in the name of Jesus we decree and declare supernatural breakthroughs are here now.

Amen and Amen

Kamala Harris for President??

On this day Monday, January 21, 2019, when we honor Martin Luther King, Jr., I wake up to read the HuffPost article, “Kamala Harris Is Running For President In 2020.”

Say what?? California Senator Kamala Harris (Democrat) decided to make it official and run for president.

Yaaaaasssssss!!!! I’m so here for it!!!

The article quoted one of Senator Harris’ motivations for her decision to run for president as,

“I love my country,” Harris told ABC. “This is a moment in time that I feel a sense of responsibility to stand up and fight for the best of who we are.”

Kamala Harris for President sure sounds good to me.

Who is Kamala Harris?

From CNBC article,“Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris Jumps Into 2020 White House Race,” Harris, 54, the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India, enters the race with the potential advantage of being the Democratic candidate who looks most like the party’s increasingly diverse base of young, female and minority voters.

You may only have seen how classy and strong Senator Harris handled herself during the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. If you haven’t seen those online Facebook or YouTube videos, then check her out.

I’m excited about Senator Harris’ decision; however, I want to know YOUR thoughts on Kamala Harris’ bid for president in 2020.

Comfort is Killing Your Dreams

Ain’t that the truth?! I saw this on Broadcast Journalist, Shaun Robinson’s LinkedIN page.

“Comfort is killing your dreams” is a beautiful reminder to step outside our comfort zone, take risks, and move in faith.

There was a time when I could see this type of post, agree with it, but never launch into new territory. Not anymore. I’m not saying everyone is supposed to live on the edge, yet encouraging you to be empowered to color outside the lines.

Remember, even a small step in the right direction is a good thing.

Be encouraged and let’s encourage one another to MOVE AWAY from comfort.

Don’t let comfort kill your dreams.

Just get started

When I think of how many accomplishments I missed out on simply because I was waiting for everything to be perfect, I get mad at myself. Like this blog, I have started blogs twice before several years ago, but never published them because I was “waiting” for them to be perfect before I hit PUBLISH. Don’t wait for the “perfect opportunity” or “perfect product.” JUST GET STARTED!!!
