Where is your Heart?

You may not be perfect, but God is not basing your value on your performance. He’s looking at your heart. He is looking at the fact that you’re trying. Joel Osteen

What is PERFECT anyways?? I don’t think there is anyone in this world that is. We have all made mistakes in the past, BUT God is not holding anything against you. He’s not judging you by your mistakes. He’s not finding fault in you. We are the only ones who find fault in ourselves.
How many time have you said “I’m not worthy, I can’t do it, HOW many times have you believed the lies of others? We are sometimes our own worst enemies.
TODAY I want you to STOP telling yourselves these lies. You need to DECLARE it,
I AM WORTHY, I CAN DO IT, I AM LOVED, I AM BEAUTIFUL <3
So you don’t have a lot of money, or a nice car, or a fancy house, you know what I dont either, BUT I know I am BLESSED in so many other ways its crazy, you need to stop and look at what you do have and STOP putting those negative thoughts in your head. I always think back to “The Help” those famous words “You is Kind, You is smart , You is important” . AND YES YOU ARE, So today start by telling your self these things. Get yourself out of the negative rut you have put yourself in and start by telling yourself these things EVERY DAY. DECLARE IT and see what happens <3
I AM BLESSED
I HAVE ABUNDANCE
I AM SMART
I AM IMPORTANT
I AM BEAUTIFUL
I AM WORTHY
I AM LOVED

If you’ll stay in faith, your dreams will happen sooner than you thought and be bigger than you imagined. That’s the way our God is. ~Joel Osteen~

This one really hit home for me today. I was told this week that my Dad has throat Cancer, we are still waiting for his appointment for the Cancer clinic so we don’t know much about how bad or treatment wise. I was so taken back when he told me (I kind of was not surprised as he has been sick for awhile now) BUT what happened was everything flooded back with what I went threw with my Mom. I was so upset, I needed my Hubby and he was at work, I was going to go find him but I was such a mess I could not drive, I seen the garbage truck and prayed that he was on garbage run that day, as I put on my coat and boots I went out and here he came down the road in the loader. I was so relived to see him, he came in the house for a min and we talked, its funny how God works as I had prayed I needed Barry and there he was <3 I sat by myself that day, in the quiet and thought ok, I cant get worked up, I cant change what is, all I can do is PRAY and HAVE FAITH and put this in God’s hands. Yes my Faith was tested that day, I could have sat and got myself so worked up that I would put myself into a downwards spiral, OR I could Trust in God and put it in His hands as I cant change what is. I wont be bitter, I wont be depressed, I will put it in God’s hands and have FAITH in Him <3 <3 No matter WHAT you are going threw put it in HIm hands and have FAITH <3

Whats your Story

Image

 

The truth is, people are the way they are for a reason. If we would take time to know their stories, we would be much more forgiving.- Joel Osteen
You know I have been doing this for a year now… I have seen MANY people come and go and come back….one thing I have learned is Everyone has a story…and for some of us our story is full of pain, heartbreak and tragedy…for others they have had a pretty smooth easy happy life… Not sure how God determines what type of path our life will be…. but I can tell you that it is what you make it….if you choose to stay negative then thats what you draw towards you… if you choose to be positive and share love and Faith.. then thats what you will draw… you will be surrounded by a mirror of yourself…
As I was typing this it made me think of a man I was meeting to rent a townhouse (at the time I was a complex manager.) He showed up and I took him on the tour, I was in a hurry as it was late and I just wanted to get home, we started to talk about other things and then he started to cry, he had been threw a very painful separation and just needed someone to listen, I cried with him and I listened to his story, I gave him a huge hug and showed him compassion and just listened to him, we ended up talking for 2 hours and he did rent that place and he would come over often to have coffee and chat, he told me that I should have a sign that says Lisa’s Coffee house and counselling,LOL. he told me that I help him to change his life into a positive one all from that FIRST day showing him his townhouse, and being that one person that listened   Why am I telling you this…cause I want you to slow down and realize everyone has a story… its how you choose to look at life on how your story says THE END  <3 <3

Let’s try an exercise.

 

Image

Assuming you’re on a computer, open up a Notepad or Wordpad and type, “Why do I want to lose weight?” Now start listing off any reason you come up with. They might look something like:

I want to be more attractive to the opposite sex.
I want to prove somebody wrong.
I want to become healthier and stronger.
I want to be able to fit into smaller clothes.
I want to impress somebody.
I want to feel better about myself.
I want to be a model.

Don’t just skip this exercise. The reason why I stress this is because if you start your weight loss journey with no clear purpose, you’re bound to fail. It’s sort of like planning a trip to Florida without a map or directions. Sure, you might somehow make it without a shred of knowledge as to how to get there, but you’re far more likely to end up driving in circles or give up and drive back home–or worse yet, run out of gas in the middle of nowhere.

Having a purpose that focuses on external factors might help motivate you to start a weight loss journey, but without a deep, inner desire to lose weight–without wanting to lose weight for yourself rather than somebody else–your chances of success are slim. By asking yourself why you want to lose weight, you give yourself reasons to continue your weight loss journey even when you no longer want to.

“People can call you many different things, but you are not what people call you. You are what you answer to.” Joel Osteen
You ARE Exactly what YOU think you ARE…if you think badly of yourself and talk negative about yourself that is the image you send out. Today I am not gonna say alot .. instead I want you to do something…..I want you to get up.. go stand in front of a mirror and look yourself in the eye….WHO ARE YOU…Are YOU Happy…… Do you start your day with Good Morning Lord or is it Good Lord its Morning??? Think about that ….. Have a Blessed Day …. And Go Look in that mirror…NOW!

AWE A walk down Memory lane :D

A friend of mine tagged me in this this morning, OHHHH how the memories flood back, this was my twins FIRST birthday 

Image

Little did we know at the time what the road for us was going to be.  Who would have known we would be faced with that diagnoses of AUTISM, who would have known that our 3 child would be diagnosed with disabilities as well. But every challenge we faced it was HIT head on.  I learned early NOT to back down, NOT to let people walk on me, and NOT to give up, I LEARNED I had to FIGHT for these kids, and I have BOY I have.  YES its been trying, BUT I look back and KNOW its all been WORTH IT <3 

I have learned the more you stand up, the better it is, I am not one to sit and not say a word.  My biggest obstacles in life was NOT my kids, it was being HEARD, getting the right help, fighting to get it.  It should not be like this, BUT I have learned it is, and the louder you, the more you DON’T back down it when FINALLY things start to happen.  I guess they get sick of hearing you LOL. I am the type of person, I don’t CARE what title you have behind your name, you are a person JUST like me. YES I have fired Doctors, YES I have told people off, YES even family, funny when I did do that i was accused of being an alcoholic, NOW that one made me laugh, I have NO time for that, just because i was up late at night when I sent that email LOL. And people wonder WHY I don’t go to family functions,  When you KNOW in your heart its NOT right, LISTEN, do what needs to be done, FIGHT FOR IT. This is in all ASPECTS of life, NEVER let someone put you down and make you feel like you have no idea who you are or what you are talking about.  In my situation, dealing with this for now 19 year and a half years, I think I KNOW what I am talking about.  NEVER let anyone underestimate WHO you are.  YES I DON’T go to family functions, if people in my family WON’T take the time to UNDERSTAND, then I have no time for them, I can’t be bothered to go and ENJOY myself when I get those looks, YEP you may know what I mean by that.  I did it to PROTECT my children, why should they have to go and get treated like crap because of lack of understanding? NOPE I WON’T put them threw that, I learn that one LONG ago.  My Mom was AWESOME, she understood, SHE understood my why’s and my feelings and she always said I don’t blame you . Life is TO SHORT to be around people like that, I have enough on my plate so I pick my battles, and thats ONE I picked.  I don’t think people understand how words, gestures, facial expressions can hurt, and YES I have seen them all, and when its from FAMILY, well that HURTS even more. At that time in my life I was learning and was not doing the STAND up for them in the way I do now, if I was the person I was now back then, WELL I would have confronted it HEAD on, hindsight site is great isn’t it ? LOL . But when I did confront it threw an email, I was accused of being an alcoholic so would it HAVE changed a thing?? Probably NOT.  And I have come to realize that this person has NO idea WHO I AM,.  I have learned that, I KNOW who I am, I KNOW who is there for me, I KNOW WHO matters and WHO does not.  I also KNOW this fight is NOT over, I will be FIGHTING for my kids till the day I die or can no longer do so.  I am only 40 and I SWEAR I have been threw enough to have lasted 10 people a life time.. But looking back, I have learned A LOT, and I take all that knowledge i have learned and I apply it to EVERYDAY life.  I am not scared to stand up for WHAT is right and I WILL NOT back down <3 And you should NEVER either <3
