Line Dancing ughhhhh!!!

Standard

I walked into the room with my hot pink leg warmers pulled up high and my matches sweat band gripping my head tightly with a water bottle and towel held tightly in my right hand. The sign on door still has a fresh smell of marker lingering around as I pulled the door knob to enter into the line dancing 101 class. I didn’t know what to expect but for some strange reason I knew that was going to have a strangely weird experience. I can’t follow directions and my attention span is none to be desired so this was sure to be something. I just didn’t know what. Immediately a lady with the biggest red hair saw me. “You are new aren’t ya” she said in a southern accent as I reached down to pull my leg warmers back up over my legs. I nodded my head rather gently and hoped that she wouldn’t try to hold me for enormously long conversations. I quickly rushed over to the corner of the room because I knew that I needed ample space to mess up in. The room started to fill up quickly with ladies who were much more ripe than my 34 years of age. I started to relax and chill because I thought surely these ladies couldn’t out due me. There was no way. So, I rubbed my hands together slowly and softly gearing myself up as I looked around the room.

“Ladies welcome…welcome.. the first dance is Sheila”, everybody had these dreadfully serious looks on their faces as raised brows looked sternly at the instructor for directions. I knew in my heart and soul that I was going to be doing my own moves but then the unthinkable happened. IT WAS TWO instructors and one came and stood right next to me. There was no way for me to run now. They could see the entire room. I cracked my knuckles and rolled my neck slowly knowing that now things just got a little serious. The music came on and bounced off of the walls as hands clapped and fingers snapped. There was no turning back now. I had to move, shack, and go in the same dang on direction.

Line Dancing part 2 ughhhh ughhh ughhhh coming soon.

Learn How to STILL that mind of Yours!!!!!

Standard

Meditation is so essential. In order to focus and create a plan to achieve what you desire you must learn how to still that busy mind of yours and stilling your mind can be extremely difficult and stressful especially when you are running around frantically looking for just that one sweet moment of peace. I was at my ob/gyn and every woman I know is never looking forward to experience that huge violation of privacy besides me!!!!! I love the peace and quiet haven the doctors office can bring after dealing with my loud and active 3 and 5 year old and in fact I look at my ob visit as a bit of a vacation at times… I know you all are thinking Ross is insane but this was my reality until I just started to reschedule my children’s schedules around so I could get my meditation in and then I finally started to slowly incorporate meditating in with our morning and afternoon activities and believe it or NOT….It works…Now, it took me two solid weeks of them fussing and not willing to cooperate but it works!!!!!! As a busy business owner and mother I knew I had to get something going because I couldn’t pause the children and a surely couldn’t pause work…. So we must learn how to still our mind and meditate with out odd schedules for our sanity….

Be Ready To Transform

Standard

On your journey towards healing it is truly a bumpy ride and scary as hell at times but nobody said transformation was easy. It’s scary to move from your comfort zone into a zone you are not so familiar with. So in order to grab at that life you want to live you must first accept transformation and be ready to transform and grow into the beautiful butterfly you are….. Cocoons are so tight and definitely uncomfortable for the butterfly so they stand still and allow life to happen and go through the process because they know the rewards will be so much better than before… They know that when they come out of that cocoon they will have beautiful wings and be able to fly but in order for that process to take place that had to become comfortable with being uncomfortable for a short time……Be Happy, comfortable, and working towards your goals while you are uncomfortable and be ready to transform into that butterfly and take off with your health, education, marriage, loving self, transformation and everything else in your life….

Enjoy your day beautiful people!

Hold on TIGHT you are about to emerge from that cocoon

Standard

A brown beautiful landed near my handle bars when I was doing some pull downs and it just sat there and sort of chilled and then it flew off and of course I googled the meaning and butterflies symbolize life and longevity and hope so then I continued to read on and it says it symbolizes transformation and as I continued to read I grew more interested in this theory so I continued reading and it said before a caterpillar transforms it’s in a cocoon and if someone helps the butterfly emerge from the cocoon it dies therefore one must transform on it’s on without the aide of others because every transformation is an intense spiritual reconnection meant to make you trust in God and learn how to trust in self 

Love Where You Are At Right Now In Life

Standard

I often over hear people saying, if I just had this or that I would be happier and at peace. Now, true enough I would love to have a maid right about now and a trip to the beach would be lovely but nothing is going to stop me from being happy right now. I want you to just think for a second or two about how blessed you are at the moment. You are able to see this post which means you have internet connection at your finger tips. Do you know how many people at this very moment are lacking internet? You are blessed! You are able to clearly see what I am typing. Do you know how many people are blind? We must learn how to rejoice and be happy with what we got at the moment. True enough you may want more but learn how to be happy where you are at….. If you don’t have a dime in your account like me…. learn how to rejoice and be happy where you are at……..

How to Love Where You Are At Right Now>>>>>>>>

1). Enjoy nature….Honey, nature is free and so much more entertaining than television….Take a walk, hike, or sit by some water and just breathe

2). Stop WORRYING…worrying never manifested more money it just manifest more lack…..

3). Read more…..and more of any of my books would be great…… Honey, I’m Full Figured So What, Honey, Your Shoes Ain’t Nothing New, Southern Secrets, Southern Secrets 2

4). Stop and really look at all the things that make you happy right now…. Not the job you need, house you need, car you need, meaningless stuff you need, and relationship with others you need…..

5). Play that dang on HAPPY song and dance really wild and free…. TRUST ME this works…I am about to play it right now…

ENJOY YOUR DAY AND REMEMBER YOU ARE LOVED AND PERFECT JUST THE WAY YOU ARE!!!!!!

Motherhood WOES!!!!!

Standard

Ok, I’m a mother now; so that means I give up my dreams to work myself into the ground and bring home a ton of money and buy my children tons of meaningless shit…….right? Well, I am facing a battle I am sure plenty of mothers face day to day which is the decision to work, work, work or be broke, broke, broke. True enough we want to best for our children but sometimes I think we are forced into a corner of turning our children over to nurseries and after care programs due to our work schedules. Well, we have to make money…right? The children must eat and have clothes and even participate in a extracurricular activity or two, and that stuff cost money and the last time I checked money didn’t just blossom off  of a tree you had to earn it.  

This dilemma is faced by so many parents that I know and its a dilemma that I face. We have too many children growing up without a solid foundation but the little crumb snatchers have the hottest shoes, electronic devices, and snacks piled up a mile or so high. It’s as if our priorities have shifted just so we can keep up with material things.

Of course I want to travel the ocean blue and buy all of those hot diet system fads but I think I am just going to focus on investing time in my family now I must admit this is not how I had pictured it. I just knew that I would have a career that I knew would take me away from my children and husband but at least I would have had tons of money for my children’s therapy sessions and bail money. I work but I made sure to work in such a way that I still have time to be around my family and actively raise my children. I would love to hear you views….

Get Back Satan!!!!

Standard

I knew you all would love the title but this should be a phrase that you say often…. Let me tell you something as soon as you start to walk a righteous path I swear the enemy will throw fear, shame, and anxiety in your way to stop you from living your purpose and doing right. Example….. If you are walking right, happy, and healthy and caring for others a test will be thrown in your path almost instantly to make you NOT want to forgive, NOT want to fight for your family, Not want to trust, Not want to be at peace. We must understand that a fear of anything is not of God and learn how to shout out Get Back Satan and mean it.

Take back your life NOW and affirm it!!!!!
