As I sit here waiting for my next Uber Eats assignment, I have time to sit in the quiet. I pray and ponder my next steps of the day. Also the next steps of life.
This morning, and last night, I had yet another argument with my son. We seem to have some good moments that last for a few weeks, then we seem to be so upheavaled and out of sorts, I don't know how to act or what to say. Will what I say set him off?
I'm a Certified Life Coach and a Parent Mentor. I sometimes feel, how can I help these other moms when my own family is so chaotic. How can I offer support when I feel I need it myself??
Do you ever feel that way? Do you ever feel like you are inadequate?
I have to remind myself, I am not perfect. I will have trials as well as victories. I am good enough to help others. I can reach back, even if I'm a step or two ahead!
I have to remember, I have been through so much. Because of that, I am able to teach and coach others through their trials, and rejoice in their victories!! I can come along the mom who needs encouragement and support!!
YOU are enough!! YOU have what it takes!! YOU are YOU!!
If we stand still, we are not moving forward. If we don't take a step out in faith, we cannot grow.
If we are not growing, we are stuck!!
We can choose to GROW! We can choose to STEP in Faith!! We can MOVE Forward!!
We will have moments of trials, but What we learn from those moments is how we GROW!!
When we learn to PIVOT is how we can Move!!
You are an Amazing MOM!
I encourage YOU to Look up! Say a Prayer and Step out in Faith!!
I encourage YOU to DREAM!!
Do You Talk to Your Plants??
What a strange question...or is it??
Words can ENCOURAGE!! Words can discourage!
You can SPEAK LIFE!! You can speak death!
What you say can LIFT UP!! What you say can cut down!
Who do you speak to? Your spouse? Your child? YOURSELF?
YES! YOURSELF!! Even words you say to yourself can make a HUGE difference. You can Encourage…. Speak Life…. Lift up yourself!!
Or the words you speak to yourself can cause discouragement, death of self-esteem or bring you down.
Words carry a frequency! I know this sounds way out there! I’ve heard about an experiment of two containers of rice. One was spoken love to! One was spoken hate to!! But try this experiment!!! See what happened!! I’ll try it also and post my results!!!
When I’m out watering my plants, I sometimes find myself talking to them. Encouraging them! Excited to see new growth...NEW LIFE!! This reminds me, I need to also Encourage, Speak Life and Lift UP my family, my kids … and myself!!
Just like new life and new transformation can grow in plants, it can also grow in others! It can grow in YOU!! Remember to Speak Life to you!!
“I Can Do All Things Through CHRIST Who Strengthens Me” is one of my favorite verses to encourage myself!!
Say “I CAN!!” “I WILL!!” “I AM ABLE!!”
I CAN walk daily! I WILL reach my goal! I AM ABLE to do this thing!!
REMEMBER YOU ARE AMAZING!!
YOU ARE ENOUGH!!
YOU GOT THIS!!!
Tell YOURSELF THAT!!! Tell others That!!
Speaking of Encouraging words! I also find what music I listen to makes a difference in how I feel. I mostly listen to Christian / Worship music, in the car, at home, etc. I feel ENCOURAGED, POSITIVE!! When I don’t, say the kids or husband are listening to something else or I relive my younger self music - I really can feel a difference!!
Challenge! Text HOPE to 816-239-8829 then Listen to only Christian and / or Worship music for 30 days! Find a Christian radio station! Play a playlist of Worship music! 30 days!!! See how you feel!! Tell me what happened in the comments!!!
