my soul is irritated.. Up and down my social media timeline.. I see people saying ” Just pray about”.. I have an issue with that..
Now let me declare this.. disclaimer this
“I don’t care who you believe in, I’m not trying to offend a single soul”
back to what I was saying…
Just pray isn’t going to do anything.. you are setting yourself up to get walked over and letting life happen to you.. and not making things happen.
I don’t know how I’m going to pay my bill – Honey just pray”
Umm no ma’am.. use your resources.. contact organizations that help with those sorts of time.. get on a budget go to a day labor.
Stop giving up and depending on prayer to get you through.. Don’t get me wrong.. prayer/ meditation is great.. it helps with the mind.. but even in the bible it says prayer with out works is dead. Meaning. just praying and no action is useless.
I swear the next person who say Just pray.. I’m going off on you.. so giving people ill advice.. tell them to get up off their ass and make it do what it do.
Alright.. back to your regular scheduled programs-
One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your kin
Kept it inside, didn’t tell no one else
Didn’t even want to admit it to yourself
And now your chest burns and your back aches
From 15 years of holding the pain
And now you only have yourself to blame
If you continue to live this way
Get it together
You want to heal your body
You have to heal your heart
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together
Yesterday I walked my kids to the park to play for a bit before sunset. There was this lady there, that some would label her mentally ill. As the kids were playing it started to get dark, an I knew I couldn’t make it back home with two small kids in tow before the downfall. We went under the park shed where Sharon was eating her Chinese food and French fries to wait the rain out. Sharon began to talk and sing aimlessly about how beautiful Cheri is. My kids looked to me with a bit of fear. so I tried to calm them by making up games to play. Of course my daughter Lulu ask loudly “what is she talking about MA?” So I asked this lady what her name is.. trying to create dialogue without being forceful.. She then began to speak with this heavy African accent. She begin to tell me how she came here from Africa with a visa. She abruptly stop and said “oh goodness I have talked too much, forgive me.. please speak” I ok’ed her to continue to express herself. She asked me if I had my passport.. I told her no I don’t. She said why? you are privileged. Go and see the world.
And lose some belly fat…
Then she dismissed me with have a blessed day and went back to singing and talking with herself.
Well thank you Sharon. Thank you for putting some fire under me.. and my belly fat..lol
After a long day I decided to stop by Venus Day Spa. This spa is in South Tampa and convenient located by I 275. Time I walked into the door I felt completely relaxed and the invironment was very inviting.
The young lady who took care of me showed me what services would be the best fit for me . She was very attentive during the process. I actually enjoy it and didn’t feel rushed. I recieved a mani with gel nail and a full pedi for less than $45. They even offer complimentary wine and water. With added gesture of care Fawn wrapped my legs in a hot towel with tea and mangos scrub. I really enjoyed the services. If you’d like to contact them they are located at 1558 N. Dale Maby Tampa fl 33607 . Remember to take care of yourself!
I was getting my oil changed today and a guy walked up to me and asked where I’m from.. I told him I was born and raised here.. He was like “nah beautiful.. You can’t be.. You look too organic” I was like “no uno organic?” he started to laugh.. He stayed that my face brings peace and told me to keep smiling ..he went on a bit more, but
That brighten my day.. Nothing more .. Nothing less.
When I go to bed, I know that my heart is good and my intention are pure.
My servitude is plentiful and my path is straight.
Nothing but positive energy my friend..
Nothing but positive energy.
So I’m I’m the treadmill as I type this ( lawd I don’t want to fall) but I’m down 5 more pounds! I’m a lil ecstatic .. I haven’t been in the gym in over 2 weeks because of an accident but I’m been doing. Bed and home workouts.
I’ve been enjoying my fitbit flex I received for Christmas. It has motivated me to push beyond what I’d regularly do throughout the day. My kids don’t mind the extra outside activities they get to join in on. Tonight the walked 16 flights of stairs with me! And they fell asleep in no time!
I have always been afraid of closing doors.. Knowing that once the door is closed.. There is no going back.. Consequences have to be dealt with.. Actions become reality.
I’m ready to close some door that have been ushering in had codes.. Negative notions. And ill wills..there is no reason to be scared of new begins..
Its one thing to be happy.. But it feels amazing to have joy!
Lord help me be able to withstand these trying times.. Bless me to be able to provide for my family.
Equip me to embrace the new begins.
Its only so much you can do to help motivate someone.. Sometimes you have to stop and let the chips fall where they may.. Here are a few tips on how to be self- Motivated when you can only depend on you.
My 8 Steps
Here is a new list that is a little more generic:
- 1. Start simple. Keep motivators around your work area – things that give you that initial spark to get going.
- 2. Keep good company. Make more regular encounters with positive and motivated people. This could be as simple as IM chats with peers or a quick discussion with a friend who likes sharing ideas.
- 3. Keep learning. Read and try to take in everything you can. The more you learn, the more confident you become in starting projects.
- 4. Stay Positive. See the good in bad. When encountering obstacles, you want to be in the habit of finding what works to get over them.
- 5. Stop thinking. Just do. If you find motivation for a particular project lacking, try getting started on something else. Something trivial even, then you’ll develop the momentum to begin the more important stuff.
- 6. Know yourself. Keep notes on when your motivation sucks and when you feel like a superstar. There will be a pattern that, once you are aware of, you can work around and develop.
- 7. Track your progress. Keep a tally or a progress bar for ongoing projects. When you see something growing you will always want to nurture it.
- 8. Help others. Share your ideas and help friends get motivated. Seeing others do well will motivate you to do the same. Write about your success and get feedback from readers.
