I Don’t Do Guilt Trips

I don’t do guilt trips. I am a busy mom, wife, entrepreneur, minister, and all the other things crammed into my amazing full life. As much as I love to give my time and energy into doing things for people, I will not perform from guilt or shame. My goal is to love the best I can and sometimes I have to say no. Sometimes, I have to choose who I can help and when. Although I would love to do it all. ( and I would), for the sake of my sanity, I need to decline. That is ok. I love better when I get to be me. But please don’t try to get me to live according to your needs or standards. Please don’t try to persuade me to do something because you feel entitled. I can no longer live like that. In pursuit of my best life and a life full of joy, I choose to continue to love you and others well because, I give my time and energy from love not for it. ❤️#cultivateyourlife #guilt #shame #empowerment #moms #wives #love #joy #lifestyle #peace #jesus

God instructed Joshua to go take the land which He promised His people. He said, ” BE strong and BE courageous” Not act like… not try… or even fake it til you make it. He said BE. We are children of God, our DNA is to BE His children. So whatever your going after. Whatever dreams your believing for. Whatever breakthrough your working through.

BE strong and courageous. In return, His promise is that HE will BE with us wherever we go.     

Joshua 1:9

Trust Fall

If I want to grow, then I can not be afraid of change.

When I was a young girl, the only thing I knew for sure, was that change was going to happen. I remember moving around every four years due to my parent’s occupation. I lived in Texas,California , Illinois, and Arkansas. I remember being excited about the adventures and yet when it finally came, we didn’t know how to deal with the changes.
