5 THINGS to Tell Yourself Everyday

Monday, May 16th, 2016

You’re probably not here for any wise advice, I get that. But, then again you might be, right? Sometimes, I dole out silly ideas and other times….I aim right for the jugular and hit it like a bulls-eye. I don’t know enough about anything to be an expert but I’ll be honest – when it comes to how we treat ourselves…I know stuff!

In the last week, I’ve heard so much bad news; job loss, marriages ending, suicide attempt, fatal accident, serious illness and it’s been cold & rainy. All in the same danged week!

It all started to weigh me down. By God’s design, I’m a burden “toter”. Got troubles? Hand them to me, I’ll hold them…coddle them & nurse them like sick babies. I can’t just get over bad stuff easily like most normal people. (It’s a real drag too)

The mind is so powerful.

So, I’ve come up with 5 important things to live by every single day. Use them, write them down and stick them on your mirror….put them in your bonnet, whatever. Just make them a priority for yourself. Then, watch how you respond when life gets hairy.

you cannnn

Don’t listen to the voices in your head telling you to give up. YOU CAN DO IT! Whatever IT is! Stop focusing on all the negatives and push through to the positives. Believe it, you can do it.

give you

Stop wallowing in all your dumb mistakes! Enough. Move on. Get over whatever it is that holds you back and decide once and for all to extend TO YOURSELF the grace that you deserve. Yes, you deserve to be forgiven. Ask God & then yourself. DONE!

tell you

Trust me. You will never look good at someone else’s expense. Not for free. It will always cost you something. So, be a person that builds others up and does whatever it takes to make someone else look good. Come on, you are better than that!

believe in y

It might appear that other people don’t have to work very hard for their blessings (and truthfully, there are a rare few that don’t) but most do. You’re no different. Get up, put on your lipstick and hustle. EV.ER.Y.DAY. Make your dreams happen.


Go ahead and get over it now. Not everyone is going to like you. Remember, you could be the ripest juiciest peach in the basket and there will always be someone who hates peaches! Focus on the people who do like you and forget the rest. God doesn’t ask us to kill ourselves trying to be liked. He just expects us to be more like Him.

Get ready to blow your own danged mind, friends!

You’re welcome!
