Simple Action = Heart overflowing

Simple Action = Heart overflowing

My heart is full today … as it always seems to be.   Life is sooo good even when it doesn’t appear to be so much from those looking in.  

Today, today I get a text from my youngest son who is doing an amazing job adulting.  

Bunny trail warning … no one ever told me what a challenge being a mom of adulting children and how stretched you will be.  You hear all the ins and outs of all the terrific 2’s, thrilling 3’s, precious teenage years and so on … but adulting children … mums the word.  I am beginning to wonder if that’s not because your children never leave the adulting world, so it is a continual stretching phase that just isn’t talked much about.  End of bunny trail. 

My heart was so full that he would involve me with a text in his life.  I instantly gave thanks for that as I know friends who don’t have that in their lives.   Then, the enemy tries to knock my knees out from under me. I have this thought pass through my mind … did I include my mom and ask her for advice to show how much I loved and appreciated her? Did I make her heart feel so full?  

And here’s where my faith and professional certifications kick in.  In that moment I had the decision to make regarding my perspective.  

I could take a negative perspective and beat myself up in thoughts and possibly words that I didn’t do enough for my mom.  I mean, we can always do better even if we scored a perfect 10 as things are always evolving and improving.  Just look at the Olympics.  A specific feat is done that is world and record shattering … then the next time everyone’s doing it and striving to go beyond that perfect 10. So yes, except for salvation, everything on this earth can and probably will be improved in some way or shape.  Not to mention the fact that my mom has already graduated to her eternal retirement and is no longer here on this Earth for me to be able to do anything different.   So, hmm, choose to be stuck in a negative that has no means to be able to change the past … 

OR 

I could take a positive perspective and remember the times that I wrote my mom letters on toilet paper when I was in college and mailed home … just because I could, and it was different.  Or the many nights and hours in her final years that she got to live with my family when I would hear her awake in the night and I’d go up and we would play Phase 10 or Uno or Hand and Foot through the wee hours of the night.   The times she would take a tumble and, once I determined she was not seriously injured, we would lay on the floor and laugh so hard neither one of us could get up and we’d get the giggles when we thought we were done laughing which would keep me from being strong enough to lift her up.  And may other fun memories.  And I know that, Yes, my mom’s heart was full despite the heart stretching challenges of her legacy.  I realize that I am REAPING harvest on the SEEDS that I unknowingly was led to sow when I was growing up and walking out adulthood.  

Everyday we sow seeds.  Whether they are seeds of doom and despair OR love and life, we get to choose.   And then … some day in the future … sometimes sooner rather than later … we get to reap harvest on the seeds we sow.   

Today I am choosing to sow seeds of Hope, Laughter and Love.  

What seeds are you choosing to sow today?

Every day when I start my day, I ask to have specific people laid on my heart to reach out to offer hope in either self care, health and wellness OR financial legacy building or both.  If you are looking for direction or a better way … feel free to give me a shout out.  

I have tools in my toolbox to help you be your own best life advocate in building health physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

AND 

I have an income stream opportunity that is absolutely anointed and reviving hope in hearts that have been shriveled to the point of looking like a very dried raisin... Not the California raisin ones either with the cool hats, sunglasses, and fun, musical instruments – however after partnering in the income opportunity those items have been known to appear!  LOL  

An income stream opportunity that is definitely a Financial Legacy Builder.  Reach out and connect with me and I will share so you can decide whether its for you or not.   

As always …

I am passionate about

Be Blessed!

Perspective and Memories

Perspective and Memories
Perspectives and Memories ... two things that can be very impactful and help bring balance to situations.  Help us to grow and expand.   

Perspectives are something that everyone has AND to each individual, THEIR perspective is the CORRECT one.  

Sometimes we are fortunate to be privy and open to hear other people's perspectives.  

Sometimes truths come out that rock our perspectives and how we have been limiting and block ourselves from moving forward living and receiving the blessings that are rightfully ours.  

Memories can sometimes be the healing salve or balm to help us make it through the current season that we are in.  

Memories can make our heart tender.  

Memories can remind us of things in our past that we have made it through and come out on the other side.  

Memories can help us see the victory in different situations.  They can help us see how we have grown and become stronger.  Or they can help us see that it is time to break the chains of bondage from our past.  

Today, as I am making room on my phone, (yes my phone is full of photos and videos that not shared are useless to everyone including myself.) Thus, I created this video.  



What started out as an item on my TO DO list ... has rendered my heart tender.  Has saturated it with love and sweet memories making it full and overflowing.  (Yes, my eyes may have weeped some of the love forth too.  LOL)  

Unbeknownst to me, TODAY ... today, I needed this.  

I needed the memory of this ride with my husband, my earthly love of my heart.  

I needed the reminder of what started out to be a leisurely ride on a beautiful day turned into a torrential downpour.  A time of intense prayer from my inner most being as we were being soaked to our inner most parts (Yes! I literally mean inner most parts ... my bum didn't even have a dry spot and I was sitting on it!) 

Even all these years later I remember the battle of my faith against the attack of fear that was attempting to invade my life as I could feel the bike slide on the slick highway, the hydroplane situations we experienced that can be deadly in a vehicle ... let's not even think about a motorcycle.

I remember digging down deep and making a choice to stand firm on our prayer before we set out on our ride for safety, protection and to change the atmosphere and lives we were blessed to cross paths with while we were out.  Instead of walking in doubt and unbelief and asking God once again for safety, protection and connection ... I made the choice to PRAISE and GIVE THANKS for staying upright, for being blessed with a Harley to be able to enjoy the beauty of our surroundings, for a camera to record the memory, for underwear that could get wet even through my leathers (yes, I was digging deep and being creative to keep my focus on praise!  LOL)  ... and for a husband that was confident enough and wise enough to seek shelter under an overpass when one came across our path.    

Sometimes in our lacking confidence, we strive and push through situations where it would be best to stop, and reassess or take a break in the storm in fear that OTHERS might think we are weak or "not man enough".  

My husband's confidence and seizing the opportunity brought blessings and sweet memories;
- of watching the water pour off the highway above us.
- of laughing together as rain water flowed forth from body places we never dreamed of when getting off a bike.
- of our riding leather being so soaked it added an amazing amount of weight to the load we carried. Not to mention the giggles and images that came when we thought about the leather as it dried and shriveled up.  
- of getting to speak blessings and prayers over another biker couple who temporarily stopped under the overpass with us that needed encouragement. 
- of being thoroughly kissed by the love of my heart under an overpass as vehicles and semi's traveled over the top of us. 

Yes, this was an amazing day that even years later ... is impacting my life for the good. 

I am totally loving and living my blessed life with thanksgiving and praise ... even on the rainy days.  

What memories are water your inner being today? 

I adore getting to hear and enjoy them with you for those that want to share!  

My life and passion is all about Standing The Gap from where you are to where you can and want to be.

Be Blessed!

What energizes you?

Had a new member training this morning for our new business owners.  Meeting them, hearing their goals, whys and areas of stretching ... makes my heart swell with excitement and anticipation at watching these business owners take the steps to get a solid foundation to build their businesses on.

So again, I ask, what energizes you?
