Still a journey

My health journey continues! As I continue to figure out what my body needs it can be quite frustrating. Lately all that I eat makes me bloated and uncomfortable, there has got to be something I can do, and I will figure it out. Starting with eliminating certain foods is my first instinct. Just because they make a healthier version of something doesn't mean it's okay for me to eat. Such as cookies made out of rice flour, instead of wheat for one example, even though they taste awesome! Growing up I was a sweet freak! If I ate all my dinner I automatically felt I deserved a dessert. Now I am definitely paying for those choices in my gut lining. Flour is not my friend, any kind of flour (rice, wheat, and etc.). So I must be strong and not let food control me! Eating foods that make me feel good, make me strong and keep me healthy are what I must gravitate toward. :) Self sabatoge is not good for me, knowing I should make better choices and then picking the harmful one is ridiculous! I will treat my body with love and respect, knowing I am worth more! My good choices will let my body know I love it. I love me!

Growing into my freedom

As I seek my true freedom in who God has created me to be, I find that some see it as rebellion, or are jealous and envious of me being me who God created. I am embracing me!!! I love me :) Remember that song "Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream", think about, I mean really think about it. The boat is you, the stream is the journey, and life is the dream you make it, positive or negative, our thoughts are so powerful. What are you thinking right now, what have you thought about today, yesterday? Confront you, the real you, take a look in the mirror, who are you, who have you become, who do you want to be? The mind knows what it's taught, where do you get your truth? Do you know why you do what you do? Or are you just following the wide path with everyone else? Create your path, be better for those you come in contact with and those who see you at a distance. Freedom is in Christ, He came for freedom, be free to love! Yes it can be hard, because some are easier to love than others, but love, up close, at a distance, but LOVE!

Art Show

So I have a talent I want to share with you!
I am an artist, I create on emotion, so most things are abstract!

Art Show: December 17, 2011 (more details to come)

God's Favor

So often times I'm not sure if God is listening to me. Don't get me wrong I know He's there, but is He listening? Obviously, yes He does listen, but maybe sometimes I am just so busy trying to figure it out all on my own that I crowd His words out.

Yesterday, He revealed Himself to me with His gracious favor.  I was driving along not reading the EXTRA posted street signs, when all of a sudden I see flashing lights behind me! At this time I'm thinking, Oh Lord I don't know what I just did, but obviously I did something. I wasn't upset or offended, just started gathering the appropriate things officers ask for. Of course my son is laughing at me and saying, "ooooo I am going to tell my team mates this tomorrow". HaHa very funny young one, I had to tell him about respect and not goofing off when officers stop you (in a loving way of course).

I was given a warning, THANK THE LORD, because I was already trying to figure out where in the world was the money coming from to pay the ticket.  Just so you know in Sugarland, you cannot turn right on red during school zone times, if you are in the school zone! :)

Isn't it amazing how that fear sets in so quickly, God knew that was going to happen and He gave me favor with the officer, who by the way said have a blessed day as he went to his motorcycle! How awesome is that, it was like God saying I hear you, I love you and am always with you. I felt peace during the whole situation, even though that old self was saying what it was saying, God ruled in my thoughts, actions and words.
Thank you God for being with me and I definitely know the rule on red lights and right turns during school zone time.  :)
Look for God in every situation, He is definitely there! Have a blessed day!

Distractions and Guilt

So I set goals and yes maybe sometimes too many at once! Do I do this knowing I may not do them all or do I do this because I over achieve in alot of things. Over achieving can't be all that bad when you want so desperately to grow and move forward! There are so many things I want to do and change in my life, that I wish God would just change at this very moment.  Knowing full well God does not work like that, because in striving to do better there is growth and strength that happens in time.

Discipline is a funny thing, we all have it, but only when we CHOOSE to, not having any excuses or listening to others excuses and accepting them as our own. AAAAAAAHHHHHHH! So frustrating sometimes, but I can do it.

I believe: Everyday in every way I am getting better and better! 

On a previous blog I listed all these things I wanted to do for 30 days. While some of them I have done, others I have done here and there and some not at all. I have to just do them, doing is better than not doing and to give up totally would not be beneficial to me at all. So what it won't be 30 days straight, I am developing good habits in m life. I am in competition with no one, no one at all, not even myself!!

Life is a journey, a learning about me, getting knowledge and doing better for me, so I can be better for those who I come in contact with.

Love yourself, love who you are at this very moment, love yourself to be able to love others. Freedom in being who God made us to be!

Be a self encourager, lift up, build up and cheer up ourselves and not tear ourselves down.

Letting Go to Feel Free

Life is full of different paths, some I like and some I don't but in the end I am stronger! Situations may come for a season or stay in your life permanently. Feeling trapped is not how I want to live my life, life gets busy, we meet people and we try to give each person what they need.  Thank God for Facebook, Twitter, Email, and every other way there is to stay connected!  I use to be against these things, but have learned to embrace them. Now that I have come out of my shell and enjoy meeting people, I have met alot of people, loving the difference in all of them. People are interesting! :) Looking for the good in each person has become a new passion of mine. God has created us uniquely different, so what is it that I can learn or give of myself to make this world a better place?

Let us be different and share our differences in love, not binding each other to our personal expectations, but being and allowing each other to be who God has created us to be! :)
