When you don’t think you can go on…

…you do. Everyone struggles with “their own stuff”. Some of us, feel as if we are given a load to carry far more than anyone twice our size could possibly carry for even one day without collapsing, yet somehow… yes somehow, we go on. Every day has it’s hills. Great news about hills is this: every single hill that has an incline… has a downhill too! So, the steeper the hills’ climb that you are enduring, the faster & more thrilling that downhill ride will be once you have reached the top. Some hills seem more like unending mountains with unatainable peaks. Others are graciously sloping and are rolled passed as smoothly as if you were coasting over them in your car.

Know that no matter what you are going through… it will one day pass.

I am praying for you. Even if I do not know you, I am praying for everyone. God has you in His hands… always. You will be alright… it is okay to cry… it is okay to hurt. I know it doesn’t make it easier. The Psalmist wrote in Psalms 23 “…though I walk through the valley…” which tells us that we all WILL walk through that valley which seems as horrible as the shadow of death to us. However, He promises to be with you through it.

Close your eyes. Take a slow deep cleansing breath in, through your nose. And now open your eyes and let that breath out through your mouth and smile. 🙂 Do this three (3) times when you need to calm down. Oh, and here’s a trick; when you can’t seem to stop crying… drink water. You can’t cry & drink water at the same time very well.  LOL I tell that to my children all the time, and have had to use it on myself as well. It works… as silly as it sounds. 🙂

I pray you all have a blessed & wonderful day!

Your friend,

I am a very unique breed of person. If you ask my mother, she would say that I am a very old spirit who should have been born in the 40's or 50's. I love old womens' fashion...when women dressed like women! If you ask my daddy, he would say I am the biggest dressed up tom-boy he knows, who is way too into cars and climbing trees! I was a ballet dancer and choreography major in college until 20yrs old when I retired due to a neck injury. Besides still dancing through ballroom, latin & swing styles, my current passions are cars (seriously...I took 4 yrs of auto shop, and drool at the sound of a loud engine rumble!), fashion & interior design, and creating moments that last!

I love helping people find their strengths! Finding their happiness and their smile! (Everyone looks amazing when they smile!) I love showing people how to be genuinely happy by simply changing their mindsets and attitudes. I do these things in as many ways as I can, using many mediums. As well showing people how they too can do something they may not have thought they could. there's a will, there's a way!

I am a mother of two (2) amazing children, who make my life beyond blessed, and I always do my best for them. I love to spend as much time with them as I can and want them always to be learning... I am very proud of them! And, GOD comes first & foremost in my life!!!

I am...

Yes, my mother used to always tell me on my bad days, “this too shall pass.” Then she’d grin & remind me to hold onto the good days too because, “this too shall pass.” haha Ah, the wisdom of a mother! 🙂

“If you’re going to be used by God, he will take you through a multitude of experiences that are not meant for you, at all. They are meant to make you useful in his hands, and enable you to understand what transpires in the lives of others.” – Oswald Chambers
