Listen friends, life doesn’t change until YOU change. If nothing changes, nothing changes. Attitude, thinking, speaking, living. Life changes when YOU change.
I did it and I’m still doing it, and I’ll tell you, I’m happy, joyous and free today.
Time to stop looking out and start looking in. It’s not easy at first but as you keep at it, one small change a day, life becomes lighter, you start to feel at ease and your outlook on life changes and in turn God works through you and life takes a beautiful shape.
C’mon friends, life is for living, live it well!
Happy Saturday of change to you! ;)
I’ve come to terms with the hurts and un-forgiveness from my past. This brings me to a place of serenity. This also brings me to a place where my “angry cup” is not so full that when life happens, I don’t “freak” out. I urge you; turn around and face your demons, if not, they’ll keep chasing you down. By suppressing them doesn’t mean you deal with them. Free yourself. I’ll be honest with you, I don’t have many days when I’m upset. I accept that life happens and I remember how grateful I am to have a Savior who saves me from myself and the daily situations that happens in life.
Don’t let your past hold you. You hold it and make something beautiful from it <3
Go on do it, YOU can (yes, yes YOU can!) I guarantee happiness, and freedom come along with it ;)

The exact ages my kids are today. The exact ages I was when I gave birth to them. Gosh, looking at them and watching them live life is a breath of fresh air. They go to school, work and have a social life. They have hobbies, they have goals and they are ambitious. Best of all, they’re kids. :)
It’s funny how different their life is compared to mine at that age. I was changing diapers, playing tea parties and action figures. I was living life for them. Living life around them. I’ll tell ya, I was living because of them. You see, I have come to really accept and understand we are exactly where we need to be in life at this very moment. Mine at that time was raising these fabulous kids of mine. And you know, they are really great kids. Just today my son was out with me cleaning up around the house and we are able to giggle together and be in each other’s company. I am so very glad and so very blessed life turned out the way it did. I am also so very pleased my kids are living life and truth be told, that I’m not a granma yet! lol ;)
So on that short note, I am basking in the fruits of my, ehemm, mine and God’s labor, and I’m enjoying watching my kids grow up. It’s a good reminder for me also to see how far I have come in this journey of life. It has definitely been a journey worth taking!
May we all get to this point. May we all learn to believe it and accept this truth.
You my precious friends, are redeemed. WE ARE REDEEMED!
God bless you this wonderful Friday afternoon ;)
For being 17 years old and growing up in a world that seethes with objectification of women, I am soooo pleased and soooo extremely proud to share what my youngest daughter Rebekah wrote as her base for the monologue she preformed at school. I am sharing this with her permission :)
The pressure put on women to be perfect in our society today is an outrage and is unacceptable. Society has put out an image towards what the perfect sexy girl is supposed to look like. This consists of large boobs, a big ass and a tiny waist, perfect face, long hair, and for some reason a virgin.. I don’t know who decided or when they did, that women have to save themselves for the perfect man or be called a slut or easy but men go around taking a certain special v card from women and wave them around to their friends like trophies. Women have been pressured so much by so many people to be the perfect girlfriend or wife, we have to cook, clean, tend to their significant other and keep our mouths shut if we feel a certain way about anything to avoid a fight or to avoid coming off as controlling or annoying. Speaking of annoying, clothing stores are annoying. More specifically WOMEN clothing stores are annoying. Everything is either half shirts and booty shorts to a tank top creating the illusion that its actually believe it or not a dress!! Sweat pants are made as tight as leggings now to show off your body, i haven’t been able to purchase a regular cant pair of sweatpants that make me feel comfortable because if women want to be comfortable MAKE SURE YOU FLAUNT YOURSELF DOING IT because that’s how society wants us to dress, clothing stores sell us clothes that men would like to see us in and we buy them because of all this pressure to be sexy desirable women to gain acceptance in society.
I’m very glad she see’s past this superficial expectation. May we as parents instill the good morals and protect ourselves and our children from this. Happy parenting :)
