2 Corinthians 5:17King James Version (KJV)

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Have you heard the phrase “It doesn’t matter what they call you but rather what you answer to?”  There are no truer words than those. Who do you say you are? Better yet, who does the Word say you are?

Over the past few days, I’ve had some very interesting conversations with some as to things said to them regarding who people remember them to be. That’s all fine and dandy as far as who they remember you to be, but who do you say you are?

Each day as you look into the mirror you should say to yourself–“Well hello new lady (or man)! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me today.” as each day we continually grow and should not be the same person we were yesterday, last week, last month, or last year. We are in a constant state of growing and evolving.

Never allow anyone’s memories of who you were on last week  define who you are today. Remember, it’s what you answer to.

People who knew you back then tend to make disparaging comments about you as you climb and acclimate into becoming the new and improved you. Don’t allow that to deter you as you climb. You were designed to be epic!

Many are diametrically opposed to accepting the new you and will, if you allow them to, pull you back into the mindset that you are not suitable, capable, and/or qualified to do what you do. The devil is a liar!

As you go about developing, growing, learning, and going, you will begin to recognize who you truly are and in doing so, begin to appreciate the fact that you were designed  as a unique individual; well-able to be all that you aspire and/or were created to be. We are all placed here for purpose.

I encourage you to know who you are and not answer to anything less. I remind you to understand that just as you are growing, so are others. Be careful what you call someone you knew 20 years ago. Most assuredly, many are not the same ones you knew then. If they are, it’s truly a shame. We were created to grow.

Now what you don’t want to do is be pompous, puffed up, prideful, and allow our egos (Edging God Out) make us think we are any better than anyone else. Nor should we go to the other end of the spectrum and believe we are unworthy, unqualified, incapable, not approved by God. There should be a healthy balance.

When people continually try to pull you back into who you were then, and you’ve gotten fed up with hearing it, and now know who you are, just quote the above scripture reference. I assure you they will think you strange and leave you alone.🙂 Do it in love.🙂

Be blessed!

Letting Go Ann Landers

Codependent relationships are a type of dysfunctional helping relationship where one person supports or enables another person’s addiction, poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility, or under-achievement.(Wikipedia)

My, my, my! If you’re like me, I’m sure you can see where you have had at least one relationship that was a codependent one.

Let’s break this down–

  1. Codependent is a dysfunctional relationship.
  2. Codependent is where one person supports or enables another person’s addiction.
  3. Codependent is where one person supports or enables poor mental health of another.
  4. Codependent is where one person supports or enables immaturity.
  5. Codependent is where one person supports or enables under-achievement.
  6. Codependent is where one person supports or enables!
  7. A co-dependent relationship hinders one from growing

Key words shown above are dysfunctional, supports, enables, and hinders. Hmm?

There are some warning signs that will alert you if you think you may be in a codependent relationship. Don’t ignore the warning signs or brush them off like we so often do. It hurts you as with the recipient of your “unbridled love and affection” which often leads to the recipient being shocked into reality by some major catastrophe.

This could be the death or loss of a loved one that has enabled one for so long. It is at that point many often proclaim out loud–“Now what am I going to do?”

It could be the loss of a job or other things that they’ve grown accustomed to and took for granted that has them holding their heads in their hands sobbing uncontrollably, again asking the same question.

We do not have to let it get to that point! Once you recognize that you are doing more harm than good in a relationship, set out to reverse the process by letting the person go. It might be, no it will be, very painful, but in the end, prayerfully the person will grow into a mature, responsible adult. It’s in the holding on that holds off their progress. Let them go! For God’s sake, if you love them, let them go!

You may say, but how? That’s my baby, my brother, my sister, my aunt, my_________.Rest assured we are not in control of the outcome of what happens to others, but I have found in my many years of life, when the rubber meets the road and people know they have to do something, they find a way to do it.

Giving someone too much latitude and allowing negative behavior to go on year after year after year hurts them as well as you. Let them go!.

Something to Think About:

Do you really want to see your friends and loved ones grow into mature adults? Do you, or have you given to others things you think they need as opposed to what they really need which often consists of teachings, saying no, and allowing them to pay for their own mistakes? Or are you constantly picking them up time after time again? If you love them, let them go and grow. Both of you will be the better for it. Just a little something to think about when your precious Poo Poo comes with their entitlement mentality.  Ah no sister, it’s time for you to grow!🙂

Say this aloud: Because I love you, I am letting you go and grow. And though it pains me to do so, the pain of holding on and enabling you is much worse. So, out of my deepest love for you, I allow you to spread your wings and fly knowing that sometimes you will fall, BUT I know a God that can help you as He helps me daily, if only you will surrender to and trust in Him.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

A Personal Development Plan can be equated to a roadmap that one has that helps them attain or achieve goals. It is a life plan for those that truly understand that if one fails to plan, they plan to fail. So how is yours working for you?

Anyone who desires to be whole–spiritually, physically, emotionally, financially, educationally, relationally,  career wise, and in all aspects of life understands the importance of not only having a Personal Development Plan but also working aggressively at it day in and day out to become the person you aspire to be.  So, again I ask, how is yours working for you?

If you, like many people, don’t have one, I encourage you to start today developing your plan. This takes work and often requires visiting on a regular basis to track your progress in developing into the person you see yourself as; the one you know you can become with a lot of faith, work, patience, prayer and tenacity.

Where and How Do I Start?

One of your goals may be to become healthier. Your Personal Development Plan  would first identify where you are health wise by going to your local physician, dentist,  have your eyes examined, a health and nutrition expert, or whoever to help you find out where you currently stand.

Next you would assess where you want and need to go in becoming a healthier you: what exercises you need to do and how often; what your meal plan should look like; whether or not you need to get eyeglasses/contacts or have extensive dental work. All of this is a part of the assessment process.

You would then progress to developing, implementing and continuing your plan to get to your desired level and maintain your newfound health.

The bible tells us to write the vision and make it plain and also that without a vision the people perish. In order to have and maintain a Personal Development Plan, you must have it written down and kept in plain sight as the likelihood of your achieving your goals intensifies by having them written and keeping them before you.

Following similar methods as it relates to any area of your life will get you on the path you seek. By continuing it will ultimately lead to wholeness in all areas of your life.

Take the time to sit down and write out your Personal Development Plan. Don’t look at your spouse, family member, loved ones, friends, or anyone else–this is your plan. As such, it is necessary for you to be self-responsible. Having accountability partners can be good,  and is encouraged, but at the end of the day it is what it is, YOUR Personal Development Plan. So if nobody encourages or supports you as you embark upon your new life, encourage yourself and keep moving forward.

Something to Think About

Let me leave you with this: If not now, when? Who will you place blame on for not becoming the you that you know you were destined to be?  Who or what will you allow to stand in your way? No one can tell you who you were destined to be, no one. At the end of the day, the choice is yours. What will you do with the gift of life you’ve been given? Will you complain about any and everything or will you take steps to be the change you want to see. Everything boils down to choices.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 1 Peter 5:6 New International Version

Another translation reads…Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that at the proper time he may exalt you. International Standard Version

Humility is essential in God’s elevation process. It is NEVER too late to get back up again and one of the key ways is to humble ourselves and allow God to do the elevating. We have an even bigger part to play that I’ll address later in these writings.

There is a commercial that I find most encouraging. The song accompanying the commercial states…It’s never too late to get back up again. The song in and of itself is amazing, but the visual, to see the young people running a race, and one stumbles along the way. They ALL go back and pick up the fallen one, linking arms they cross the finish line TOGETHER.

FB_IMG_1469846186802 (1)

Sometimes the falling was caused by a break down in relationships…our relationship with God as with our relationship with others. Do your part to get these right if at all possible.

When linked with the right people, which sometimes include the fallen soldiers and warriors, we can rise to levels beyond our wildest imaginations. In order to do that, we must first humble ourselves under God’s mighty hand. Then we must  be willing to accept our roles in the downfall or demise of a relationship, business venture, or partnership.

Next we must, and this part is very crucial, be willing to right wrongs. Ignoring or not addressing issues that led to the break down or fall will not yield the desired results of restoration, solidarity, unity and the moving into the promised land; of getting back up again. Don’t we all want that?

Know that even after doing your part, some may not accept your acts for restoration. Do your part anyway, that way your conscience is clear and you CAN get back up.

In order to get back up again, we need runners; some running alongside of us and some we can pass the baton to in order to go to the next level. In order to run our race, we need humility and not allow ego to keep us from our destiny. In order to get back up again we need to take whatever steps necessary to get on and stay on the right path.  In order to get back up again, it often requires a letting go of people and things that take you off course causing you to lose your focus. In order to get back up again, we must consistently forgive others–yes even when we don’t feel like it or want to do so.

Are you ready to get back up again and fulfill your purpose in life? It’s NEVER too late to get back up again!


And let us run the racehttp://www.reginamixonenterprises.org



“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist   

At a time when there is much chaos, confusion, division, misogynists, hatemongers, and all manners of diversionary efforts taking place to get us and keep us unfocused as it relates to our pursuing our dreams and visions, now is the time to dig in deeper like never before in pursuit of our purpose.

Imagine this if you will, your taking a laid back approach as it relates to your dream could be the diversion that’s hindering or delaying the blessings of so many. Your not acting now could be the difference between the opening of doors for many others to walk through. So now that you’ve thought about that–What’s really holding you back?

The media constantly displays the negatives: the Presidential campaign and all of the tomfoolery that’s taking place with it, the shootings throughout the world, the fallen or disgraced sports figure, government head, or entertainer, in essence the bad news. After all, we know that bad news spreads a lot faster than good news. So what part can you play in reversing or flipping the script in the sharing of more good news and pursuing your dreams and purpose?

Number one, you can get up from where you are, stop watching and reading the same news stories over and over again, be a part of solutions to help our ailing country. Next you can and should begin to live your dreams! Yes YOUR dreams! As I’ve mentioned several times your dreams and purpose is not just to benefit you but should benefit countless others.

I recently read a letter Kobe Bryant penned to his younger self…and I also read the accompanying comments. It amazed me that instead of focusing on the great message the letter contained as it related to some lessons he had learned as he aged, there were several who launched an attack starting with his rape of a white girl and concluding with why shouldn’t he take care of his parents and family members with all the money he had amassed. My first thought was –how ridiculous and my next thought was it’s very easy for others to form an opinion as to what one should do with their own money and the wisdom they’ve learned. Why do I bring up Kobe while talking about Living Your Dreams? Glad you asked.

As you begin to live your dreams and pursue your purpose, there will be many that will have their opinions and unfortunately a lot of them won’t be favorable. You must develop tough skin and LIVE YOUR DREAM and stay true to your purpose regardless of the opinion of critics that can also be some you love dearly. You may have to distance yourself from some and even have estranged relationships as you go and grow. Don’t allow the fear of what others say and think get you off-track. Keep moving forward!

Be bold. Be confident. Study and learn all you can about your dream. Speak. Listen. Pray. Plan. Prepare. Have Patience.  Grow…and then go! Don’t allow the fear of what others will say or think stop you. Don’t allow fear in any way to hinder you. It’s your time to Live Your Dream! You won’t fail if you consistently pursue. Forget the fear of others as with the fear of failure. Move forward!



Mike, a well known architect, suffered tremendously for years internally as he had no idea who he really was. Trying to please everyone was actually what landed him the job that he has. His efforts to please his parents early on landed him in his current position as this was always their dream for his life. However deep down inside Mike really had aspirations of becoming a lawyer. But, to appease his father’s and mother’s wishes he became an architect and was miserable for many years.

Now in his 40’s Mike has finally realized that this is not actually what he wants to do, but he doesn’t know how to break free and be honest with his parents, so he continues day-after-day- after day–smiling on the outside but screaming on this inside.

Mike suffers from a case of mistaken identity.

The bible tells us that the thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy but that Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. The thief has stolen Mike’s true identity and as a result Mike is miserable.

Mike finally came to the realization that in order to break free, there were several things he had to do. In order to be true to who he was he would have to break free from the past as it related to his parents desires for him. In order to be happy and really live he would have to pursue HIS purpose and so he began the journey of discovery, healing, and purpose.

I share with you about Mike (who happens to be a fictional character) for the sake of these writings. What I ask you to do is take a look at yourself. Ask yourself some serious deep questions if you feel unfulfilled and are doing things for the sake of pleasing others. Questions like–

  • Who am I?
  • Whose am I?
  • Why am I here?
  • What do I believe to be my purpose?
  • Who or what is holding me back?
  • What steps do I need to take to get my life on track for where I want to go?
  • How and when will I begin?
  • Who will I need to help me correct my life’s course?
  • Do I need to continue education in certain areas?
  • Do I need to shake off feelings of inadequacy or low self-esteem?

You see, I write about Mike’s suffering with a case of mistaken identity, but this very well could be you. Having been the victim of identity theft, not one, not two but three times, I know the discomforts and pain one goes through in an attempt to regain or have our identity restored. Just as we go through the emotional discomforts and often physically draining process of the time, effort, and energy in getting our identity restored, so we must go through the same, or a similar process in getting our spiritual identity restored; of finding our true selves.

Once we go through the process of answering the hard questions, we are well on our way to becoming amazingly free; free to be the real us that God intended us to be. You see, He put the desires within each of us to do certain things. Others unintentionally often douses our desires and puts our “fire” out with loads of water/guilt/opinions in an effort for us to become who “they” expect or perceive us to be.

People, sometimes well-meaning, other times not, can and often will stereotype you due to your upbringing, your occupation, the color of your skin, where you live, your educational background, and how they perceive you to be BUT that doesn’t define who you truly are. They will try to silence the real you. Don’t allow that to happen.

Dig deep and break free. In doing so, you are no longer suffering from a case of mistaken identity and then are able to live your life as God intended.

No one can rob you of your true identity unless you allow them to do so. Be the real you and the best version of you that you can be– daily growing. It’s time to break free!






“As every divided kingdom falls, so every mind divided between many studies confounds and saps itself.”
Leonardo da Vinci

Division in any form is what saps us of our strength. A mind divided, a house divided, a church divided, a nation divided…these are the traps of the enemy and we see the consequences. In love and unity there is much strength and much power.

We have been, in many instances, our own worst enemies. We promote those that look like us, act like us, talk and walk like us. We shun and are fearful of those that don’t fit into our conception or idea of what we deem ourselves to be.

We harbor hurts, ill-feelings and grudges against those who we believe did us wrong. We play over and over in our minds the song “Somebody Done Somebody Wrong”. We hang onto injustices that leads us into a state of anger that we have a hard time letting go of. And so we hurt and never heal.

We see in our individual homes the division as each person wants to go his own separate way often ignoring the leadings and teachings of the parents and sometimes take advantage of the heads of the households. Entitlement, freedom of speech, no disciplining of our children all have played a major part in this.Children rebel against sound teachings. Churches are constantly divided over clichés and everyone’s different understandings of the Bible. We fight and bicker among our co-workers as each person strives to be “the best” and the idea of teamwork is something, although a great concept, tossed out of a window. We have to be the best! (And there is nothing wrong with giving what you do your absolute best. There is a problem when it becomes more “I” than “we”)

And then we wonder why our country is in such a mess…our homes…our schools…our churches…OUR NATION. Can it be that there continues to be so much division and competition that we lose sight of what our country was founded on? On what really matters most?

Growing up, I remember in our small community how families regularly came together, prayed together, worshipped together, played together, and grew together. I distinctly remember my grandmother having a garden and sharing her vegetables and fruits with other surrounding neighbors. I remember the neighbors doing the same–sharing whatever goods they had with others in the communities. Lack was removed as they all helped each other.

If one person had a cow or pig slaughtered, many in the neighborhood reaped the benefits. Many of us were poor by the world’s definition but we were always rich in what mattered most.

We were taught respect…to say please and thank you. We were taught to not to take anything or anyone for granted as no one ever had to do anything for another: it was only by God’s grace and the goodness of that person. We did not feel ENTITLED!

As kids we often fought among ourselves. Bruised elbows, bruised egos, bruised everything but we soon came back together.

The teachers encouraged students to be the best that they could be. They taught us, as with the elders, what mattered most in life. Some of us listened and some didn’t and strayed BUT the values were instilled in us. We WERE RICH!

I had a teacher go to bat for me when an injustice was done against me. I didn’t even have to worry about fighting the battle. God had already placed someone in my path and prepared them ahead of time to fight the battle for me.  I thank God daily for Mrs. Frankie Mitchell! Because of her and this situation, I grew to learn that there are many battles I don’t have to fight. And neither should you. God has already prepared someone ahead of time to fight the battles for us. Actually His word says that vengeance belongs to Him.

I have a brother and sister-in-law that have fought many battles on my behalf and I thank God for them daily. I have friends who have fought battles on my behalf where I never had to say a word.

Back to my community: You’ve heard me say over and over again I never, ever wanted to leave home. I love my people. I came to understand that sometimes in order to grow, one must go. You’ve seen the funny commercial–“Should I stay or should I go?” That was me when it came time to leave all that I valued and loved.

You might ask, why is she sharing all of this? I’ll gladly explain. Even though we all did not agree on the same things, we loved each other still. Even though we fell out, we understood and realized the importance of coming together and did so quickly. Even though we went our separate ways, many of us were never divided. Even though we faced difficult times, we understood the importance of unity.

When one of us obtained a place of position where we could help another we often did so by helping them secure employment in the organization we were in. God had graced us with the position and given us favor to help someone else. We answered the call and many lives were changed but did they change for the better? Some did and some didn’t.

Some later became so high-minded that the thought of encouraging and helping another flew out the door. Phrases like:”I got mine, they can get theirs the best way they can” became popular”. Seeing a brother or sister in need…well many learned to turn a blind-eye or a deaf ear to the cries and hurts of the people.

People, this is a clarion call! Love is the key and also UNITY. All lives matter. Let go of the division. Stand for what is right. The atrocities that we face are the results of our own insecurities, fears, wrong thoughts regarding others, prejudices, and ultimately has led to division, hurts, losses, anger, broken relationships and astronomical sufferings.

Out of some of my most hurtful, embarrassing, shameful and devastating moments, times when I thought I would just curl up in a ball and die, came some of my greatest strengths. And so it can be with any of us.

Yes, I am a believer, a child of the most High God and God is saying “Please return your love back to me”. He is the ultimate healer. He is the answer. So if you’re angry and upset with the happenings in the world, do YOUR part in helping to be the change you wish to see. That’s all each of us can do. Let’s get back on track…PLEASE!

I am in competition with no one. I run my own race as at the end of my jouney, I’ll stand before God alone, face-to-face and my only desire is to hear Him say–Well done they good and faithful servant. That’s it.

UNITED WE STAND! DIVIDED WE FALL! If we want to stand and be the people that God wants us to be and have our nation restored, then standing in unity is not optional but a necessity. I’m just saying…






2nd Puzzled Face Image

Ponder that for a minute. Seriously think about it. Which are you or have you spent most of your life being? Interesting question huh? Now which do you aspire to be? Let me tell you the difference between each of the three–

  1. A doormat is something we are all familiar with. It’s either outside or inside and something that we walk on as we either enter or exit a door. One definition defines a doormat as a person who is the habitual object of abuse or humiliation by another. Have you allowed people to walk all over you, brushing the dirt from their feet off on you? To humiliate you?
  2. A door opener is something or someone that holds the door or opens the door for another to enter or exit through;something that is effective in leading to opportunity or success: Do you or have you spent your life as someone who goes before others opening doors?
  3. A Gatekeeper watches the gate or guards the gate ensuring the right people enter through and the wrong ones stay out. These are designed to keep certain elements from attending various events. It is one who is used to identify, count, supervise, guard, and monitor the traffic flow through it.

So which are you?

A while back I watched a pretty interesting movie where there was a young lady who had been pretty much a people pleaser. She never spoke her mind or her true feelings and because of this, she allowed people to trample all over her. She was a “yes” person.

This young lady was also an author though her upcoming book was not what her publisher had expected. It was dull and lacked that extra oomph.

She spent some time in a support group and that is where she found her strength as with her voice. The title and contents of the book changed and she no longer became the “yes person”. The book’s title was “My Life as a Doormat”. Now honestly, can’t a lot of us see ourselves as having lived a life like this?

Aspire to become a gatekeeper. Guard your heart for out of it flows the issues of life. Guard who you allow to walk in and out of your life. Guard who you allow to speak into your life as with the lives of your loved ones. Guard your mouth as far as what you say about yourself and others.

We should strive to live our lives not as a doormat but rather a door opener. Sometimes we must serve in the capacity as a gatekeeper but what we never, ever want to do is serve others as a doormat. The latter downplays our uniqueness as with our strengths. We were never designed to be a doormat.

Just a little something to think about.





As I write this, I am reminded of a story in the bible that many are likely very familiar with.

John 5 King James Version (KJV)

After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.

In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.

For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.

And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the Sabbath.

Again, this is a story many are very familiar with but let’s see how it applies to you life. What things or people have held you back from being all that you desire to be? What excuses have you used to keep yourself stuck in the same situation for 10, 15, 20, or even 38 years? What lies have you believed about your situation that makes you think you cannot do, be, and become all that you desire to? So the question remains, will thou be made whole or will you remain the same? The choice is yours.

I would finish school, but…I would exercise, but…I would start my business, but…I would work harder to improve myself–spiritually, physically, and financially, but…

It’s time to get the but’s out of the way, make a decision that you will not only start the task but finish it, and be made whole. No more waiting for others, no more excuses as to why you can’t, just DECIDE you will and go at it!

It does no good to mumble, grumble or complain about where you are in life if you are not willing to confront and deal with the issues and do the work necessary to make the changes.

It does no good to sit and think–I wish that were me losing weight, starting a business, embarking upon your chosen career path, continuing your education or whatever it may be. The time is always now and the question is always, will you be made whole or will you remain the same? The water is being stirred or troubled!

Now don’t get upset when you see others walking in their purpose as you sit on the sidelines and saying or thinking to yourself–That could or should be me.

Don’t become a “hater” as you see others aggressively pursuing their purpose with passion. Some make the choice that they will be made whole come hell or high water and believe me there is a price to pay in doing so.

The price is often long hours of studying, spending (I like to say “investing”) lots of money in pursuit as none comes in, being isolated and working while others “enjoy” life (or so they think),  The price is often falling down and getting back up time and time again.

Will you be made whole? Challenge yourself to get off the sidelines and get into the game…the game of life. Get fired up and run your race. You can be made whole! Again, the choice is yours.

Can You Hear Me Now 2

Hello…I said hello…do you hear me…HELLO! Can you hear me now? Why do I keep saying hello? I want you to really hear what I’m saying in the contents of this message. I want you to allow the words to resonate so deeply within that you have no choice but to take back every single thing that the enemy has stolen from you. Again, I say…HELLO!

There’s a great gospel song that states–Everything that the devil stole God’s giving back to me…I want my joy back! Yes, you can have your joy back!

Another song that I truly love is by Shirley Murdoch and it states–I love me better than that. I’m going to get my life back. I want my joy back. I want my piece back. My self-esteem back. Yes, you love you better than what you’ve allowed to rob you of your joy, peace, family, relationships, health, finances, praise, worship, joy and peace. I love me better than that! And I just know you do as well…love yourself better than how you’ve treated yourself.

How do you take it back? You know…speak it, believe it, act on it, be consistently consistent, have a dogged determination that come hell or high water you will get back everything the enemy has stolen from you WITH INTEREST!

How do you take it back? In order to reverse the curse that the enemy has planned for you or for restoration to take place, you must make a 180% turn, not 360 because it will land you right back in the same place you’re in. In order to take it back, you have got to lose some weight. Yep, lose some weight–the weight of carrying problems of others that are too great for you to bear and not meant for you to carry; the weight of trying to take care of everyone but yourself. The weight of enabling (not helping) others and hindering their growth and sometimes we need to shed some physical weight through proper rest, exercise and healthy eating. Hello somebody!

You have got to lose the weight of trying to drag people along with you that talk a good talk but the walk does not line up. They procrastinate. You procrastinate. They make promises and break them. You make promises and break them. They lie and cheat. You lie and cheat. Whatever you’re around the most is what you become. Hello!

You know the people I’m referring to, those still whining, still complaining, still broke, never grateful for anything…those are the ones you need to run from.

Okay so your reputation is tarnished, your character is in question, your life is chaotic, you live in a constant state of back-and-forth, and just when you break free from all that’s been holding you back and those that want to spend their days mumbling, grumbling, and complaining about how bad life is and you start to SOAR, you run right back to the people or situations that helped get you where you are today. Say this with me: Not anymore! I’m drawing the line in the sand today. I will not complain and remain, but I will praise and be raised. Hello somebody! GP (God’s People) are you with me?

The challenge becomes one that we each can do…spend some time daily working on improving you. Right wrongs that have been in arrears. Deal with and confront your situations. Pray about them first. Don’t go half-cocked and once you get clarity, get to stepping!

Join me as I reclaim what the enemy thought he had robbed me of and gain back everything he took away…WITH INTEREST. Let’s do this for 30 days and watch how the turn around takes place. We will find that EVERY TIME we turn around He makes a way!

Email me, or share with me on Facebook or twitter your successes. I want to hear them. Iron sharpens iron and sharing your successes will not only encourage you but many others as well.

Time to take those bricks that have been thrown at us and build a powerful wall!
