Reach Your Goals.

Hello beautiful people. I went to a youth adult ministry yesterday (mind you, I haven’t been to church and quite a while). And there were only 7 of us there, so we decided to have an intimate conversation. We talked about prayer, travels and aspirations. All good things. However there was one message that stuck out to me the most. As we were conversing about our goals and the way we differ from society. There was one thing that has helped most of us reach former goals and dreams. And that is writing.There was one girl that talked about traveling and we asked her “well where do you want to go?” LOL This girl pulled out a journal full of notes and research about the different countries she plans to go to and how she was going to get there. That’s when we all realized how important writing your dreams, visions and goals down really are.

Habakkuk 2:2

And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

Think about it. How many times have you thought about an amazing idea ( I mean an idea that really pulled a chord in you), but then forgot it? Sometimes that feeling, that chord that is struck, is a message from God. You never want to lose that. Write it down.  Today, as I was looking for a place to write down my short and long term goals I came across my old journal. Out of extreme curiosity you know I had to read it. I wrote letters to God, praying for great things to come to pass. And you know what, they happened with out me even realizing it. So you see there is power with what you write, even if your like me and come back to it years later. So I encourage you today to write down you goals and visions and make a plan for your life… Don’t be afraid to ask God for what you want, because believe me He got you. That’s our daddy!

So write down your goals. You want to lose weight? Write down your goal weight. You want to eat right? Create a clean eating chart. Shoot write down what you eat.  Want to get toned? Write out a plan to do just that! You can do it. Just do it! But seriously any vision you have for your life, write it down, make a plan and do it! This may be your time, and you won’t want to miss it. Sure it might come back around, by why wait if it’s meant for you now?

That’s God

Senior problems. The middle of the semester is approaching and it’s about that time to prepare for graduation. Then it’s the “real world” with “real jobs”. As you can imagine this can be a very stressful time. You’re almost to that graduation date, but the classes seem a little bit harder, and the thought of what comes next is scary. Some people know exactly what they want to do when they leave school, and then there are others, like me, who kind of know what their next step is, but don’t know exactly how to make it. All you really know is that you want to be happy. That’s me, I want to be happy doing something I love. But sometimes it’s hard to do that and be comfortable financially. So the worrying starts. I have to keep my grades up. I need to find a good job. I want to be happy. I want to make good money. The list goes on and on. Just stop and breathe. I was talking to my mom today as she was paying my tuition. Earlier she was worried about the funds necessary for the cost, until she looked into her account and saw that there was more money than she expected. She said “I didn’t even know where it came from.”  My mom has a good job and a beautiful spirit. I told her today “I want to get where you are one day”. She replied “that’s God”. She didn’t say “that’s hard work”, “it takes time” or “you can do it.” Simply put, “that’s God”. That’s when I realized that it doesn’t matter what I choose to do. As long as I keep God first in my life I know he will fulfill all of my needs. I will keep working hard on my dreams and I know that God will grant me the desires of my heart. So I say this to you. Don’t worry so much, because God got you. Like I said in the last post this healthy journey is about being healthy mentally, spiritually, and emotionally as well.

Loving the Body Your In

LOVING THE BODY YOUR IN

This blog is about leading a healthy lifestyle. Yes, there is a lot of talk about getting fit to obtain that hot body. But there is much more to this “healthy journey”  then just the outside appearance. Having a healthy lifestyle includes being healthy mentally as well. Honestly I am at a constant battle with myself to be happy with the body I’m in. I have this pesky little pouch on my tummy, that stubborn lower belly fat that seems so hard to get rid of. I’ve always thought to myself  “Oh,  I’ll be good when this teeny pouch is off my tummy.” But I realize why can’t I be happy now, the way I am. I’m living a holistic lifestyle and loving the way it’s making me feel on the inside. There’s just something so rewarding about knowing that the foods I eat are nurturing my body. Having a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean obsessing over your weight. It’s means creating a balance for your life spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Really take the time out to meditate on the beauty of life that God has blessed you with. Think positively, forget about the scale or the mirror. Work hard and you will see progress. This should be a happy healthy journey not an emotional roller coaster. Know you are beautiful at ever size, shape, and figure you are. Be more focused on the beauty that lies inside of you. Be kind, loving, genuine, and caring and that beauty will reflect on the outside. That beauty never goes away and is way better than the physical aspect. When you have peace of mind, you have it all. You’ll reach your goals. Just love your body, love this journey, and love this lovely life.
