We, often, get wrapped up in what other people say or think about what we do or how we do it. This can cause inner turmoil. What was working for my friends and family was not working for me. I was listening to this person and that person, sometimes judge me, and I began to hate myself. “I’m not here in life” and “I don’t have this” and “Why are you doing this?” I was beating myself up. I had to come to a place where I was ok with where I was. I had to understand my life was just that…MINE. I have learned over the years that there is NO WAY I’m going to please everyone. The best thing for me to do is be pleasing to God first and stay true to myself. The things I’ve gone through in my life were the, very, things I needed to go through and experience to be where I am today and get to where I’m going. I took the long road, based off choices I made. It wasn’t, always, a pleasant ride, but it was an adventure, nonetheless. If your goal is to get a college degree, there are numerous colleges to choose from. They all will get you there…the curriculum or schedule may vary. If your goal is to run 3 miles everyday, there are so many ways to build up to that. There are apps on your phone, or getting a running instructor, or just going out and start running. Either way, if you stick to it, eventually you will be running 3 miles everyday. People will ALWAYS have an opinion of how you should be doing things in your life. Constantly pray and ask God for guidance. Your destination never changes…just the route you take to get there!
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” ~Proverbs 3:5-6″

Are you going through some tough times right now? Do you feel like no matter how hard you try, you can’t catch a break? If so, take a deep breath in…exhale…say aahhhh! I want you to know you Will be alright. I’ve been in that very place. I saw no way out. No one could make me see and understand that where I, currently, was was not going to be my life forever. Having that mindset made it very difficult to live. I’m not talking about breathing. I’m talking about LIVING…enjoying every moment, good or bad, and embracing the journey. I lost all my money, most of my material possessions, and some “friends.” I didn’t know how I was going to make it and wanted to just die. It was when I developed my own relationship with God that I understood what was being said to me. I had to learn to trust God and his plan and will for my life…not Tasha’s plan. I had to understand that my timeline was irrelevant when it came to God’s timeline. The situations I was in, and still in some, were and are a MUST for me to grow and appreciate the better in life. Your current situation is your situation for a reason. There is a lesson there. It took me five years to recognize mine. Not to discourage, but encourage is why I say pay attention. It didn’t have to take that long, but I was in my own way. Everything changes, including situations. A changed mindset=a changed view=a changed situation. This mentality applies to every situation from losing weight to restoring a relationship to bankruptcy. “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.” ~2 Corinthians 4:17-18~ #God1st #Godsplan #Godstiming #faith #hope #trouble #doesntlast #getoutyourway #allowGodtobeGod #thankful #changedmindset #restoration #helpingothers #betterme #betteryou #itworks #phoenixofhope #liveDPC #determined #persistently #consistently #myjourney #comealong #JOINME



The word can’t (can not) is a crutch. To me, can’t is synonymous to impossible. Through my tests, trials, and tribulations, I’m here to tell you nothing is impossible when God is the head of your life. You may want to mend a relationship with a family member. You could be going back and forth about going back to school, but say I don’t have anyone to watch my kids. You, repeatedly, say you want to lose 50lbs, but you’ve always got a soda or cookie in your hands. You talk about wanting to make more money or having more freedom, yet you’re always shopping and not willing to invest in yourself to, possibly, work for yourself or move up in your career. No matter what it is you are desiring to have or change in your life, you have to want it as bad as you want to breathe. It is going to take hard work and strategic thinking, at times, but trust when I say a way can be made. When that moment came, for me, it lit a 🔥 under me. There is no turning back. CAN’T is an excuse that is, no longer, allowed in my vocabulary. I am a work in progress, but FAITH is how I know that every dream I have will come to fruition. Short term sacrifice for long term gain…in every area of life.
“You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” ~Matthew 17:20~
