I had to go there last night and work and assert myself in order to bring attention to issues we have been having with production of one of our products. I didn't mind asserting myself, it is just something I really didn't want to draw attention to a delicate situation. So many politics are involved and I just got tired of the favoritism that runs rampant on my shift and seeing the folks that are not in the clique get caught up in nonsense.
Taking it to another level is kind of cleansing. It helps remind me of my power and purpose here on this earth and why I do what I do. Another thing that I learned, assertiveness does not have to be confrontational or negative. It can be a good tool to use to help establish and keep boundaries of life. I do believe you need to assert with a purpose, going willy nilly is not the answer.
So as I head into work today, my prayer oh Sovereign God is that You reign supreme in my life, that my Christ light shines and I walk in victory and be a blessing to all those around me.
In Jesus' name, Amen.

At my last WW meeting, the leader said we should just do it anyways, since we are here in the moment and going through the process of weight loss. Why play around with it, lose, stop coming and gain it all back and then have to start all over again. I might as well just follow the program, stick to it and do it anyways. Makes a lot of sense. I could of had this last thirty pounds off ages ago and then some, if I believed in myself enough and stuck to the protocol.
Same with school, with work. Just do it anyways. I could have tackled this last class ages ago, been finished with my masters and just be moving right along. Life happens for a reason and instead of beating myself up about the wrong things that have happened, I count it all joy for all the good things that have happened in my life. God is still working on me, i am a work in progress and it is my hope and prayer to be able to live my life out loud, live my best life.
I was gently reminded by the spirit that resides in me to not be afraid of moving forth, of actually completing my set goals. Fear of success sometimes grips me for no reason and I learned today I have to shake it off, hold my head up high and full steam ahead. I can give great advice to others, but to take my own is something else. God is still the God on high, He is still the author and finisher of my faith and God still will never leave or forsake me. I am going to do it anyways!

I did some good old fashioned praise and worship right here in the apartment, taking care of God's business and getting some things done today before going into work tonight. After having a whirlwind weekend of sightseeing and remembering Moma, I need to take time to reflect, get some order and balance here at home before heading out and taking on my next adventure. I am grateful for the people that God puts into my life, for a reason, for a season and for a lifetime. I expect great things with God, I have been taking different audio bible studies on line learning more about talking to God in prayer, God's renewal and God's peace. Having peace is a blessed thing, one that I wouldn't want to even imagine to do without.
I am continuing to stand in the gap for one of my Aunts who is battling pancreatic cancer. I know that Jesus is the healer and God is the author and finisher of our faith. I continue to believe that thy will will be done and God has the final say-not the doctors or folks around her. I pray that her feelings of frustration and pain are alleviated and God's peace envelops her, giving her the courage and support she needs to face the climb ahead.

Today would have been my Moma's 81st birthday here on earth, but she is now living large with our Lord and Savior, so I know she is having a beautiful birthday bash. i sung Happy Birthday to her and commemorated her day by having some fun of my own, continuing to map out my future. I hung out tough and deep Friday, first by getting my cardio in and looking at potential property. Came home, changed real quick and went out in the afternoon for some real big girl Friday night fun. I visited one of Kansas City's museums taking in the sights of the Titanic artifacts. I walked around Crown Center looking at all the interesting shops and then saw a play that evening extolling the virtues of Bingo. My date and I had a blast since we both went to Catholic schools.
Came home and crashed into bed, seeing how I got off work Friday morning at 7:00 am and went non-stop all day long. It was my greatest intention to get up and meet with the Kansas City Black girls run group, but I didn't hear my alarm for the 6:00 am workout run/walk and I have been suffering from killer cramps in my legs, left and thighs. My girlfriend told me I needed some potassium, so off to Walmart or Walgreens to get some, along with some bananas. I made it to a great weight watchers meeting, that had some excellent tips for doing it anyways and another scale victory A small one, but I will take it and refocus on my portion control. My WW leader suggested having a scale helps keep the confusion down and since it was on sale, I picked on up. I headed over to one of my favorite breakfast nooks and meet with my other girlies for brunch. We usually get together every four months so it was nice catching up and chatting with them. I dashed across town to meet up with another girlfriend and we attended a small hair show that gave me some valuable tips on getting some stretch and moisture to my hair. So well worth it and they handed out a great goody bag! Lisa and I went to lunch and got some home decorating ideas from Gordman's. I was keeping busy and glad not to take part in the tax free weekend. I am refocusing my own personal agenda with a heavy concentration on my health, getting my weight down, controlling my blood pressure and cholesterol, finding a permanent affordable home for me and the poodles
Happy Birthday in Heaven Moma!

I took another big girl step and finally turned in my mortgage paperwork-let the games begin! I am officially "pre-approved" and can start looking to find the right home for the right price and in the right place for me. To God be the glory I have to really map out my future, watch my spending, follow my financial peace budget, do better in my menu planning and just overall watch my health and safety. I am stepping up my game with my exercise routine, keeping up with my 5k/10k training and flexing and stretching my overused muscles.
This is an exciting and rewarding time for me. Time for new growth and development, time to purge out the old and take in the new and refreshing. I want to be able to develop my style, go with the flow and live life out loud. Mapping out my future helps me to make my dreams a reality and I always said i want to live my very best possible life
