What are your hands doing?

“Your thoughts may not have caught up to what your hands are doing”

In business its easy to talk about what we’re doing or what we aspire to do. Less talking , less thinking, less strategizing but what you need is ACTION. What are your hands doing to help you reach your goals and dreams? What actions do you take everyday to get closer to your wants and desires of your career? There’s 24 hours in the day….. How many hours do you dedicate towards your purpose and goals?

“Sometimes you’re going to have to put your hands to work and let your mind catch up later.”

In a world full of anxiety …. The thoughts that you think, the words you say affirm your direction. Sometimes you have to do it AFRAID. Sometimes you’ll have to JUST DO IT. Let your mind race and let the adrenaline flow because you will never know how great you can be until you DO IT.

“When my thoughts start to dominate my actions and start to dominate my opinions … I have to make my hands catch up to what God is saying NOW.”

Are you just busy to be busy or does your events and conferences align with God’s purpose and plan for your heart? The thins He has placed in your heart are not by coincidence . They are your purpose. The late nights you spend thinking about your passions, are not by accident. It is your purpose calling you..

IT’S TIME TO EMBRACE YOUR SEASON. Make your mind catch up to your hands.

Celebrate Your Progress!

Don’t be afraid to celebrate the small wins. 

When we have a vision . You might be still progressing towards your goals , but realize the small wins along the way. 

When people speak to you , their either speaking to who you’re afraid to be, who you used to be , who you are or who you’re going to be . 

Categorize them properly. 

Sometimes we can be so afraid of returning to who we were that we don’t embrace who we are now . 

When other speak to “Who you’re afraid to be.” People project things into you by saying things like “ Oh you’re never going to do that . Oh you won’t be able to get there. ” “You don’t have the tenacity. You don’t have the resources. Who do you think you are?” These are insecurities others will impose upon you as you go through life. Know that God says that YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH HIM.

When people speak who we used to be … They will say things like remember the last mistake you made when you did this or did that. Remember how broken this made you last time. You can’t handle all of that , you aren’t made for that, never have been , never will be. When people use your past behavior for your future success .  Because their unaware of  who we’re becoming they throw your past back in your face . So don’t be bound by your past mistakes . 

Who we are now – Sometimes people have been privy to all of your history and the progress you have made , they’ve been able to grow and transcend with you. This relationship can meet you right where you are . That’s amazing that you don’t have to shrink to be in their presence and , they meet you where you are. 

Who you’re going to be – When we’ve experienced disappointments and others commend us on our growth or in our potential, a lot of times it can make us throw that away , so we deflect compliments because we can’t receive when others speak up over our situation.

You may see this version of yourself last. But take inventory of what their saying. When we have a vision for what our life can become… don’t miss the small things.

I love you . I’m rooting for you.

My Dad Was Diagnosed With Cancer Last Week.

A fathers love is like no other. They love and hope to the God above that you will love you like they do. A fathers love is infinite and kind . It never stops or rewinds.

My daddy is my superhero ! He can hustle and work. You see these hands… His hands are like mine. Except their tough and hard like one of a kind. My daddy had 4 jobs, and could catch a lob and ally oop it!

We’re like Bestfriends but never did I ever think that would end.

It was October 31st of All Hallows’ ’ eve and the air was bittersweet with a taste of candy corn as my brain was torn because I was just told that my dad was in the hospital.

I soon came to know that what seemed to be an ordinary blood pressure check turned out to be much more… Multiple Myeloma. A twisted contuition of a word that I had never heard. Much more than that was what the doctor said after …Not knowing of the disaster that would hit me like a ton of bricks.

And yes..It sticks to my heart like super glue feelings made new that the diagnosis for his pain would never sustain , because there was …………no cure. No cure for the pain he was about to endure.

Stage 3. Not 1, Not 2, But 3.

My heart dropped . Shatterred into pieces.

The doctor gave my daddy a death sentence!

Why do bad things happen to good people? If God is so infinite and so loving than why would He give my daddy a death sentence?!

Who will comfort me when I have bad days and make me smile?

Who will protect me when I am defenseless?

Who will watch the Mavs games with me even when they lose?

Who will  walk me down the isle of my wedding day?  And  WHO…. would give me away?

GOD! CAN YOU HEAR ME? IS THIS A TEST? MAYBE ITS A DREAM? Lemme pinch myself… wake up Monica . Wake up !

DAMN this isn’t a dream!!! God what do you want from me?!!!

You see the hardest part about life is you never know…Where the road is going to go.

Faith. A word that is unseen , no bounds , no limit . Nothing can dim it . Faith  tests and perseveres through fear even when your path seems unclear.

Faith is  the only strand of hope I have. A strand …A strand will make you stand and speak …….

even when your knees get weak.

UNCERTAINTY

When you feel uncertain about where your heading, it almost like pressure is always on your shoulders. You feel like the whole weight of the world lies on you. Its draining to say the least.

I feel like the moment you give up on your dreams is when you start to procrastinate and your procrastination then leads to settling for where you are. The period between the vision and actual manifestation is actually the hardest period because you can’t see the end. I think that’s the most frustrating part.

There is a peace in our generation when we know the outcome. There is a sense of peace when you know how much time something will take and you’ve seen the desired outcome. Sometimes, seeing is believing and wen we cant see ourselves being the doctor, being the lawyer, being the CEO, it creates uncertainty in our hearts. It creates uncertainty in our mind and I think that’s when the devil attacks us the most.

I want to speak life for you that you won’t be bound by the pressure you’re feeling  day to day. God sees you and He’s working behind the scenes for your good. Faith is not seen but FAITH is required in this season.

Submit your vision to God in prayer and He will make everything clear. I pray for your strength and that you will see full manifestation of what God has for you. Keep thriving friend and remember you have endless potential.

Are you stressed?

Their are going to be moments in your life where you will have to focus on one thing and let the others things rest . Are you stressed ?

Have you been eating right? Have you been obsessing about your weight? Are you stressed?

Do you feel bad when you haven’t worked out ?Do you beat yourself up?

Do you feel pressure and anxiety right now with everything  your doing?

Do you believe that you can multitask ? Is your multitasking stressing you out?

Are you feeling overwhelmed i this season?

What is a priority in one season may not be a priority in another season. There are going to be moments in your life where you will need to be satisfied in one area so you can shift the perspective into another area. You need to be able to allow some things rest while other things are being built.

In my mind, I am wonder woman, super woman, and everything to everyone. But that will stress you out and you need BALANCE which means you  need to be allowed to release one thing so you can tend and care for another thing.

Stop beating yourself up. You are amazing friend. Always remember you have endless potential!

I Just Wanna Breathe!

Have you ever felt anxious ? Have you ever felt like your mind needed to breathe but couldn’t? Have you ever felt crazy?

Sometimes I feel like my mind is going 100 mph and there is no stopping. I have events and things I want to accomplish before I get 30. I have goals to attain. I don’t have time for stopping and breathing.

I want to be a self-made millionaire. I want to have my own business. I want to have my career at 100,000 by age 26. I want to be a inspiration. I want to start the Youtube Channel. I want to start the podcast.I want to motivate people. I want to start the nonprofit.

Its like our minds have a million things on them everyday and your chasing after something. Your chasing after independence, after a Home, after a Man, after a Woman, after a Business, or even after Peace. Its like if we get all the things we worry about, we won’t have to worry anymore about anything, like we can finally be at peace.

But the truth is… We’ll never be at peace if we chase things, business and money.Money makes the world go round though right?

Wrong,  money can’t bring you joy, it can bring you happiness for a while but the true reason why our mind is always racing is because we’re trying to fill our lives with something. Anything to fill the void in our heart.

What are you trying to fill the void in your life with?

2 Corinthians 5:17 says  Therefore if anyone is in Christ , they are a new creation, old things are passed away , behold ALL thing are made new.

When God enters your life His Holy Spirit will take residence in your heart and the void of emptiness is filled and you will become whole.

So if your feeling like your not whole right now and their is a void of some sort in your life and your feeling kind of crazy. Talk to God and ask Him to fill the void and have FAITH that He’s going to do it.

I love you friend. Always remember you have endless potential.

Growing Pains

In a world full of so much uncertainty, the older you get the more pain you obtain,

even through the rain its sometimes hard to stay sane.

In a world full of so much uncertainty the more I learn of the birds and the bees, the more I can see it doesn’t obtain to just me.

There is a generation today that praises  flings and things it brings. But all it produces is situationships.

Yes. I said situationships ; a relationship thats not really a realationship, based on circumstantial situations that haven’t played out yet to be a friendship or commitment. The dictionary version to a person, when one finds themselves in a situation with someone else without commitment.

No it’s not a side hoe, but everything goes and it doesn’t have a title but there’s the feeling of love there.

Yes I said feeling the one that keeps tingling in your body sending chills down your spine saying you’re all mine.

Right?…..                 Wrong.

Yes it feels like love. I said it FEELS like love.  Fake  love but not a real love a fictional love that lasts only about a day, a week, a month, maybe even a year. To be clear , this is the definition of this generation.

You see when you find yourself in a situationship it produces growing pains. These pains won’t substain the whole in your heart. So it would be best to part, to be smart about your growing pains…

You see it may be time to part ways and recognize your growing pains. The older you get the more you can see that whole in your  heart should never part from a REAL love.

Depression, Anxiety , Loneliness, and Overthinking produces growing pains that stain your heart to find the worse kind … of love. But what you want is that Jesus type of love.

A love that lasts past the ages of time, a love that will shine through the waves of uncertainty, a love that will carry your burdens and never be shipwrecked .

You want someone to sail the seas with ,  hopping on a boat to every nation ,  flying to a  a paradise location  domesticated,  no matter the destination.

You see these growing pains… They are learning to simmer down because God is the winner now. He’s the tylenol I take, as I realize the people in my life can be so very fake.

But He never dissapoints  ….. I talk to Him  like a friend and  slowly He takes the pain away.
