The Balancing Act

TGIF girlfriends!! So here we are ladies, rounding out the first month of the new year! So how did you do? Are you still knocking out those 2017 goals and resolutions? – losing weight, healthy lifestyle, working out, water challenge, journal challenge, prayer challenge, etc… I was trying to name the more “popular” goals/resolutions that we tend to make each year LOL. Well let me just tell you (about me) – I haven’t given up and don’t plan to give up either on some of them BUT I’m finding, trying to organize my life along with incorporating my new goals has become quite the balancing act! I’ve succeeded in a few areas and did a good week’s worth of effort in the others. I’m still motivated and inspired to complete all of my goals, its just taking me a lil bit to get organized and to prioritize properly. (Y’all know how my life is setup… and just in case you forgot LOL – wife, mom of 4, EPing, 8a-5p, blogger, ministry worker, wedding planner… IJS) So this is my inspiring moment, for all my girlfriends that are ready to throw in the towel or have already thrown it away, to get back into the game/race and let’s complete this journey together! Its been said that it only takes 21 days to create/form a habit, so lets kick it in to ACTION! Put your phones, tablets/iPads, and planners to use and physically schedule time to do each goal you wish plan to pursue. This does include daily prayer time to take your goals to the Lord and pour out your desires unto Him. What’s the quotes?

If you Fail to plan, you Plan to fail – Benjamin Franklin

A Goal withOUT a Plan is just a wish – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

and the Word says:

Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], and your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance]. ~ Proverbs 16:3 (AMP)

We can do this ladies! The year has just begun. Don’t dwell on the past 27 days and start conquering your masterplan with the 338 days remaining!! Don’t let 2017 be your year of shoulda, coulda, woulda, but let this be your complete and perfect year!

Have a blessed weekend ladies!

Joy for Your Day,

#WINNING

Have you ever wanted to #WIN at something so bad that you talk yourself out of it or write-it-off before you ever even begin to try? Well that was me yesterday as I was discussing the matter of changing up some things in my daily diet with my fellow Girlfriends. I was so quick to respond “I’m just SCARED lol” and then they asked “but why?” And then I had the nerve to say “to fail” (I know shame on me). So this morning I decided to define both scared and failure:

Scared – thrown into or being in a state of fear, fright, or panic

Failure – lack of success, a falling short, a state of inability to perform a normal function, omission of occurrence or performance

But wait that’s not how I would describe myself! I know what the Bible says and declares for my life so how dare I speak so lightly of it.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. ~ 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)

So on today I just want to encourage you ladies that no matter what it is your facing (financial difficulties, weight gain, anxiety, depression, etc.) every morning you awake to a new day, new mercies, another chance to #WIN in life. Don’t allow fear or failure to try and dictate your life! When you hear that little voice saying you CAN’T at something, stand firm on God’s promises and respond back with the attitude of “well devil just what if I actually DO succeed, now what” #WINNING

You fail if you don’t attempt and you will never know if you’ll succeed if you never try. ~ E. Ford

And with that – let’s make life each and every day about #WINNING with Jesus!

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. ~ 1 Corinthians 15:57 (KJV)

Have a wonderful weekend ladies!

Joy for Your Day,
