Time For A Quickie?

Dare To Dream

What are your dreams? Do you even have any? Do you live life day to day waiting for the weekends to get here or for the day just to be over with? Are you caught up in the hustle and bustle of letting life live you?

I dare you friends, dream a dream! Put a goal in front of you. Dream a BIG dream. Let it scare you.

We need motivation and that does not come from our outside world, that comes from within us. It comes from wanting to achieve and succeed in our life. It comes from working towards something bigger than ourselves.

How do you get a dream?

Let me ask you, what would your perfect day look like?

Say, ten years from now, it’s your perfect day, what would that consist of? How would your day start? What would you be doing and who would be there? Go on, let loose for a minute and let your thoughts get away with you. What would it look like?

God did not create us to live a life of mediocrity. He sent His son Jesus so we may live life in abundance. I always say, life is an action word. We need to put action into our lives and live it! So come on now, what are your hopes, dreams and goals? And most importantly, what stops you from achieving them? I know, I know I’ve been there too, fear, financial issues, time, the “can’t be me” attitude, the busyness of life, and whatever else excuse we throw in there to stop our own selves from going after the dreams and goals we have in this life. Listen, God did not place those dreams and goals in us if He had no intention of helping us reach them.

So, how do you go about getting some dreams and goals if you don’t have any? I suggest writing down all the things you’d like to do in this life. yes write down even those crazy out of this world ideas. Go on write them down!! Now, divide them up and for each one put a little action plan in place. Ok for example, lets say someone wants to travel the world helping others less fortunate but they don’t have the money to get started. They can start off by writing their dream to travel to places where the need is great. An action plan for this would be this person can start off by helping those in their own community first.  Most importantly, be sure to see and read your dreams and goals list everyday. You get what I mean? Let your dreams and goals be BIG and BOLD.  Some may come to pass and others may not but that’s not the point. the point here is, having dreams and goals gives you passion for living and motivates you in life. It keeps your mind focused on  reaching those dreams and goals and keeps you from wasting your precious time worrying what others are doing or not doing. It places your energy where it counts and where it matters.

I had a dream and a goal to write a book. Guess what? It came to pass :)

So go on now my friends, dream your dreams and live life with passion. We get one chance at it, make it count!

And  for all you parents out there, would this not be a great example for our kids? Do we not teach them to go for it in life? Lets do the same. We were created for great things, own it and live it!

God bless <3

It All Matters

Hey friends, wanted to pop in and say Hey and share this really awesome video my eldest daughter took and shared with me.

It got me thinking. Well I already knew but I reflected once again. Everything we teach our children, everything we say and do and how we respect ourselves, others and nature our children will learn from us.

It was really wonderful and warmed my heart that my daughter was able to stop and enjoy nature and record such a site and experience.

Hope you enjoy this short video and please take in the amazing sounds in the background.

Ciao for now :D

 

What If…

What If…

What if, just for today, you decided to accept life on life’s terms?
What if for today, you chose to say, “I’m going to learn something from this situation” instead of reacting in hysteria and calling up ten of your friends to complain?
What if, today you chose to look at the good in your life instead of what’s not going to your liking?
And just, what if, you complimented others instead of criticized, just for today?
What harm would that do?
What kind of a day could it be?
What kind of attitude would you have?
Change starts within us. In our heart. We must have a heart transformation so we can put out goodness with others and ourself.
Start the change. When you change and handle life differently than you have been, life changes, you change and others around you change.
Come on, give it a try today.
Ask yourself, “what if today, I take myself out of it (what I mean by that is, having things go the way you want it to suit yourself), and go with it?” What if right now you make the decision to act lovingly?
I encourage you to let this be your goal today. As you encounter the day, keep the “what if I choose to act this way (a way that uplifts and encourages) instead”, in your mind and ask yourself that question and put forth the action on it.
You have nothing to loose and a pretty serene day to gain.

Happy “what if” day to you!  :D

 

Life Savers in Three Flavors

Well hello there! I pray all is well with you and you are having a fabulous day :D

I’m so excited to share my latest interview with you. This interview was done with such a wonderful young lady who works with an organization called Pregnancy Care Centre. This organization provides help, support, encouragement and spiritual guidance for young moms.

For all you moms out there check out; IAmNotAlone.ca for more info about this organization.

Here’s the interview, it’s a short two minute video. I hope you can take a peek ;)

Friends, I cannot thank you enough for all your support over the past while. God bless <3

100 Huntley Street Interview

Hello there my friends :D

Today was a big day for me and God. I was the featured guest on Canada’s #1 Christian Talk show 100 Huntley Street!!

I gotta tell you, what a beautiful bunch of people I met there today. They were so kind, gentle and so spiritual. It was a wonderful place to be.

I’ll be quick with my writing today as I have added the video interview I had with Moira Brown from 100 Huntley Street this morning.

What I would like to say is, no matter what we have gone through, God can and He will give you a new heart of love and forgiveness and take you places you could only dream of! :)

An amazing thing happened after the show, I met a beautiful young lady who just so happened to be a young mom, and shared a little bit about herself with me. She was able to do so after hearing a little bit of my own story. You see friends, the more we share our life and experiences the more God uses that to help others.  I am so grateful I have chosen to walk with God and use what the enemy intended to destroy me, for good in helping others. Praise You Lord!

To all of you, thank you again for all your support over the past year and a half I’ve been blogging and sharing my life ;)

Thanks for watching ;)

Shattered Pieces

March 6, 2014.

The door slams behind him in the night hours. We stand there in half disbelief but also in a state of belief that we are to face yet again the hurt and pain that comes along with this.

He’s gone again. Bags packed and without a word, gone.

There I stand, hurting and numb from watching him go. How can this be? How can this be happening again? What happened to his plans of date nights and his re-commitment and promises to love and never leave again?

My heart shatters once again.

I am left alone again to gather the pieces of my heart, my life and my family and try to move on one day at a time.

Who does this? I can ask, “why, why, why?” to no avail and get no answers.

Life. Addiction. Cunning, baffling. Hurtful. Destructive.

I will tell you something;  “Charm can fool you, beauty can trick you but a woman who respects The Lord shall be praised” Proverbs 31:30. This is who I am. A woman who respects and loves The Lord with all her heart and I always will be. I am the leading lady, LADY, in my life. Yes, I am.

Another chapter of life has opened up.  Piece by piece my heart will mend and God will restore it all and more for me and my family. In the meantime I will praise Him.

Today is shattered pieces, tomorrow, God’s glory.
