Be sure to join me on IG live tomorrow at 8:30am!
I know it’s motivation Monday, but I want to be honest with you.... . . Feeling motivated has NOTHING to do with your goals. In fact, trying to feel motivated can actually KEEP you from hitting your goals. . . How? . . Because your feelings are fickle. Your feelings will lie to you. And your feelings will have you waiting around for some magical spark of inspiration.... that may never come. . . Instead, focus on your MOTIVE to take action... then take action. In other words, why are you doing what you’re doing, and WHY is that important to you? . . If you’re not clear on that second WHY, you will struggle. . . Let me know in the comments what’s one goal you’re working on, and what’s your WHY (motive to take action) 👇🏾
A personal testimony from She is Me night: I not only almost didn’t do the event, I almost gave up the ministry. Last year I was dealing with an anxiety that caused me physical pain, and a depression that robbed me of internal feeling. All I knew was that the very thought of speaking ever again shot fear through my body. I nearly convinced myself that I heard God wrong, She is Me was something I conjured up, it was by no means a God dream. No more She is Me, no more anxiety. Or so I thought. I felt so trapped inside myself, and I couldn’t hear God. I remember January, anxiety and depression free for the first time in months. I was at 7am prayer at church and they sang defender. “When I thought I lost me, you knew where I left me, you reintroduced me to your love. You picked up all my pieces, put me back together, you are the defender of my heart.” There is a lot I shared about my anxiety/depression journey. But there is a lot I have kept private and have no intention of sharing (maybe in a book someday). But this song, it rang so true in my life. I didn’t know he had been fighting my war, But his love was ALWAYS my greatest defense. I have carried this song as my anthem, that all I have to do is praise and stay still, even if I can’t see him fighting. On Saturday night, As my stomach started turning and I started sweating (it happens when I’m nervous) I got a text from our Worship leader asking to replace one of the songs with Defender. In that moment I knew God was fighting for me and every person that was going to be in the room, and all I had to do was sit, praise, and be still. I hosted an event, I shared my story (a part of it that I usually hate admitting), I preached. I was not afraid, and I was not anxious. Thank you God, my defender.
At yesterday’s church service our pastor talked about how 78% of people are searching for purpose and meaning in their life. It reminded me of the many stories about celebrities who have it all-the lifestyle, security, money, excitement. Yet they are unhappy. They wonder if there is anything more to life. Mid life crisis stories of people buying cars, trips & things because they are searching for something more. Trying to fill a hole & add purpose + meaning to their life. Desperately trying to put accomplishments or experiences before time runs out. Even thinking about myself sitting at corporate thinking “am i going to be happy doing this job for the next 30 years?” It felt somewhat empty. I knew at some point there were only so many promotions or job titles I could have and then what? What was I supposed to contribute to society or accomplish then? How was I going to help the world or leave a legacy? I had my own “mid-life crisis” of my layoffs and booking a trip to Asia which led me on my journey of really digging deep into my faith, my purpose & my legacy. Of what more I can do on this earth before dying. Of how much more I can serve people and His kingdom. And for the first time in my life I can honestly say that I am on the right path. I’m not worried about what comes next. Or if I’m missing out on something. Or if there is something else I should be doing. Or if there is more to life. In corporate I was constantly pushing for the next achievement. The next best thing I could be doing. The next things I should be learning to be the best at what I did. And now-I’m here. I have “arrived”. And by “arrived” I don’t mean money/trips/things/material/relationships stuff. I mean I confidently know that I am doing exactly what I’m meant to be doing on this earth. My work has purpose, meaning & joy. I get to help people see their worth, how much they are loved, how incredible they are & help them be compensated for it. And I get
Authenticity. Social Media. Faith. Entrepreneur. . These words get bandied about - often as opposites. . Yet, the definition of authenticity beckons: “1. The quality of being genuine; real, 2. An origin supported by unquestionable evidence; verified, and 3. One’s true nature or beliefs.” . I have found that all these words belong together. Those who know me, know that I am at my core a deeply spiritual person. I am a Christian, yet my doubts have been many. I am a Christian, but many of those with whom I do life don’t share my faith. I am a Christian, and an outspoken advocate for women, the abused, and all the downtrodden. And I recognize that some have been deeply hurt and shamed by individuals within the four walls of Christianity. For this my heart hurts. Yet, I love the Savior that I have found despite my doubts (maybe because of my doubts) who hung out with the outcasts of society, healed the women, and showed up in a world as a nobody - often angering the religious leaders of His day. . I have found healing myself and freedom in this simple gospel. . Yet, I rarely post on these topics. I’m also an entrepreneur and it’s anybody’s guess what natural living, essential oil, or hygge home topic I may chat about. I’m a mama and a birth doula, so often my days are simply consumed with play dates, laundry, and diaper-changing. . We all have these deeply-held core beliefs, and what a beautiful world when we are able to express them, share them, and listen well to one another. . May your Monday be filled with this beauty. And perhaps some Easter eggs...you know ... if you are one of the many parents eating their kids’ candy today 😂 . . .
🍾Cheers to the women out there cheering each other on! . The other day a girl I've never met or even spoken to (you know who you are 😉) wrote some really not so nice...dare I say nasty... things on my last post. I deleted it but was still a little baffled as to why someone would have the desire to be negative on someone else's posts...especially a vulnerable one like what I shared 🤷♀️ . Now I'll be honest, my initial reaction was of a little bit of anger and a lot of hurt. I almost sent a less than cordial message to her telling her to mind her own business and a few other choice phrases. But I took a big step back and chose to drop any aggression and pray for peace and happiness for her...because its apparent to me she is reflecting her own insecurities or unfulfillments on other women. It's not a reflection of me...it's a reflection of her.💔 . Ladies let's knock off the judgement, the gossip, the negativity...and choose to lift and empower one another. 💪 . Because when women support each other incredible things can happen! 👭
