INSPIRATION EQUALS MOTIVATION
I must admit that I have really been lacking in this department lately. I had a talk with GOD to really repent for being ungrateful and unmotivated to be my best for him and myself. I must remember not to let what goes on around me deter me from being what I know I am capable of being.

God- I made a commitment to fighting the weight and food (overeating) challenges I have been having so I can be of better service to others and maintain on the highest path God lays for me.

Myself- I am tired of being less than my best! I need to get my butt in gear!

-Taumaia- My Spark Buddy...I knew I had to post and check-in with her and didn't want to list any junk food or excuses for not exercising.

Today (and this week) my inspiration is to "keep my eyes on the prize," my mini-goal to stay on track w/ food & exercise so I can finally get out of the 90's and start on a new set of tens! It's soooo close- I can almost feel it!

Fact: however long it'll take you to reach your goals, just remember that the time's going to pass anyway, so either you'll stay where you are now, or you'll be the "you" you dream about today:)

The only thing stopping me is me!

Received this email and this inspired me,

Girl, just look at you with your pretty self. You are so beautiful! Not only are you beautiful but you have the nerve to be talented and gifted by God. Hold your head up girl and know that you are loved and appreciated. Don't give the enemy any place to cause you to have low self-esteem or doubt. You are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made. This is your year to decree it and speak it! This is the year of new beginnings. So, get your step on girl God is faithful to perform all that He has promised to you! Be confident in Him and His word. The words you speak from your mouth determine your outcome. Why not speak good and positive things over your life girl? You are not defeated but rather you are more than a conqueror. You have been through a lot in your life and look at you now, just as pretty and as strong as ever! Oh, how blessed you are. Look what God has done and look where He has brought you from. Begin to bless God and praise Him for all that He has done, and for making you so beautiful! He had you in His precious hands all the time. Your life is orchestrated by Him. He knows you and what is best for you. Believe that He h as even greater things in store for you and your family. Girl, get over the silly stuff and grab hold of faith. Seek God as never before. Sure, times are hard but God is good. Learn to love who He has made you. There is no one like you.


Enjoy Jesus and enjoy life girl!

I wrote this especially for you (with your beautiful self)
~Author Unknown~

If by chance you are already encouraged in this area of your life, feel free to lift the next woman up.

Walk in your blessed day




LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, LIVE EVERYDAY AS IF IT WAS YOUR LAST.

Concentrate on this Sentence*
" To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did."
When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'

Just wanted to share this with you ladies.

Time passes. Life happens.
Distance separates. Children grow up.
Jobs come and go. Love waxes and wanes.
Men don't do what they're supposed to do.
Hearts break.


Parents die.
Colleagues forget favors. Careers end.
BUT - Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.
A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her.


When you have to walk that lonesome valley
And you have to walk it by yourself,
The women in your life will be on the valley's rim,
Cheering you on,


Praying for you,
Pulling for you,
Intervening on your behalf,
And waiting with open arms at the valley's end.

Sometimes, they will even break the rules
And walk beside you, or come in and carry you out. Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters,
Daughters-in-law, sisters,


Sisters-in-law, mothers,


Grandmothers,


Aunties, nieces, cousins
And extended family all bless our life. When we began this adventure called womanhood,
We had no idea of the incredible
Joys or sorrows that lay ahead,
Nor did we know how much
We would need each other.


LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, LIVE EVERYDAY AS IF IT WAS YOUR LAST.

Hello everyone, this gave me inspiration today.

Tips for Better Life - 2008

1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the
ultimate anti-depressant.

2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Buy a lock if you have
to.

3. Buy a DVR and tape your late night shows and get more sleep.

4. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My
purpose is to __________ today.'

5. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.

6. Play more games and read more books than you did in 2007.

7. Make time to practice meditation, yoga, tai chi, and prayer. They
provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.

8. Spend time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.

9. Dream more while you are awake.

10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is
manufactured in plants.

11. Drink green tea and plenty of water.. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan
salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.

12. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

13. Clear clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new and
flowing energy into your life.

14. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of
the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest
your energy in the positive present moment.

15. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are
simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class
but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

16. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a
college kid with a maxed out charge card.

17. Smile and laugh more. It will keep the energy vampires away.

18. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

20. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

21. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

22. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.

23. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey
is all about.

24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

25. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will
this matter?'

26. Forgive everyone for everything.

27. What other people think of you is none of your business.

28. GOD heals almost everything.

29. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

30. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will.
Stay in touch.

31. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

32. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

33. The best is yet to come.

34. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

35. Do the right thing!

36. Call your family often. (Or email them to death!!!) Hey I'm thinking
of ya!

37. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am
thankful for __________. Today I accomplished _________.

38. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

39. Enjoy the ride. Remember this is not Disney World and you certainly
don't want a fast pass. You only have one ride through life so make the
most of it and enjoy the ride.

40. Please Forward this to everyone you care about.

May your troubles be less, May your blessings be more, May nothing but
happiness come through your door!


LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, LIVE EVERYDAY AS IF IT WAS YOUR LAST.

Tell him Good Job on the report card! I will pray for your husband's peace. I just love this group.

Today I am inspired by my daughter who is having a movie and pamper day with her daughter. They are getting a manicure after the movie. Larissa (the grand daughter) is feeling left out because her brother is getting Confirmed in his Church Sunday. He is getting fussed over and she is feeling left out. And she doesn't want to wait until her confirmation party because it is tooooooooo loooooong from now! LOL When you are 7 I guess 7 years to wait is toooo loooong.

that is so true Busybottom! I love that my son (at age 6) has his own personality and opnion - they are truly amazing.

Today I am inspired by my son who received a bronze honor roll for his report card today and my husband who has sickle cell, but does not let it take over his life. They are both always so loving and always encouraging me! I am so blessed.

My grand daughter who is afraid of nothing and inspired by everything. She is young enough to not have been "told" what she can't do. So she sings and dances and sees the beauty in the flowers and the songs of birds! Oh to be young and uninfluenced by the "voices" that hold us down.

My BFF Gabe inspired me today (yesterday)3/11. I call him my personal Dr. Phil, he gives me advice whether I ask for it or not. He is sometimes VERY harsh in his approach, but I appreciate him and love him for that.
P.S. Don't tell him I said good things about him. emoticon
