The world does not owe you a single thing. If you have a problem, create the solution. If you require money, position yourself to attract it. If you're not fulfilled and inspired by your vocation, change it. You are not serving a life prison sentence. You are free to make choices that are self-fulfilling and inspiring to provide you with the life you deserve. #choices#solution#sylnow
Workouts may be delayed but they are never skipped!
Oakley woke up with me and just plopped down in the middle of the floor. She usually stays in bed so I had to give her some cuddles. She loves having her legs stretched which still to this days makes me giggle.
After about 3 minutes it was time to push play on some Insanity Max and got my sweat on. Never missing a Monday makes such a difference. You are not only setting the tone for the day but you are setting the tone for the week. Start it off right. Attack the day and crush the week!
You were ready.
Although, your home situation shaky.
Questionable in the presentation.
Your explanation was thought to be fake, you see.
I passed, doing something noble.
So I thought.
Your Obligations, were more Important than Us.
I chose differently.
However, it's all for the best.
Temporary distractions surely are pests... Disturbingly comfortable....our pegs and holes match.
Unbelievable to us, so we gravitate to and repel We, like magnets choosing sides.
We belong together and we've only been apart.
Our orbits having constantly eclipsed one another for years. Neither knowing when or for how long.
I'm revelling in the treat of You. Aware that our time is short.
We reveal and We conceal emotions. My desire burns bright causing a halo around your shadow... Indulging a bit in the decadence of your presence because timing mostly gives us a virtualization of reality.
Seeing you, brought things to the surface that I pretended to resolve in my genuine attempts to resolve, pushing down the fact that we were no longer seeing each other.
Love, Regrets, Frustration, Adoration... Purposely missing each other in order to present the other with our best selves, after a lot of work.
But, it doesn't really matter
Because you're Imperfect's perfection... For me.
Building takes partners.
Solid foundations lead to sturdy mountains to climb.
I get it.
But, I don't.
No matter one's level of "busy", home is where your Spouse is.
Timing is everything... We don't know how much time we have.
I know that you're my Soulmate but I wonder if you'll ever be my Life Partner.
So when will you be ready? Again.
These are the pictures I don't usually post but are the most important to me...I'm blessed with an awesome family...the kids you see there...there mi siblings...and there's still one left but she couldn't make it in the picture...but I just want to take some time to actually appreciate everything that I have in my life...I might no be the richest person in the world but I do have people that surround me and care for me...see what I complained and irritated myself about before...I realized my problems are nothing compared to what some people have to face in live...I later realized that my family is all I got...my life could be filled with friend's but honestly...they are not going to care or worry the same as my family does...if any of you have any sibling problems...just rething everything...just remember that they can't break up with you...they can't stop being your brother or sister...there with you forever...they are your greatest friends because other then your mom or dad...your siblings want the best for you...I as the oldest have to spread an example...when I was younger I wondered why such responsibility was laid upon me...it might sound easy but believe me it's hard...now that I have more mature mind set...I try and give my sistes advice...I don't want them to make the same mistakes I've made...believe me I've made some ridiculous mistakes in life but every piece of that has build up my character into a person that I'm proud to be...if you made it this far thanks for listening...👏 #siblings#family#advice#motivation#life#choices#picoftheday
It's important when striving for a goal, success to celebrate the small achievements along the way.
It keeps you motivated, and energy levels high.
Here I celebrated reaching my business maintenance by the middle of the month.
Leading the way for a great result by the end of the month.
Feeling proud and empowered. 💪💪❤️❤️⭐️⭐️
Today we will be dealing with the energy of karma.
The law of cause and effect is in play now.
Do you see the elements in your life balancing out?
Depending on the choices you have made this card can bring joy or drama into your world.
When we choose things that are good for our soul karma will bring those good things back to us.
But when we choose things that are not so good for our soul...karma will reveal the consequences that we would rather not see.
We create all of our lives experiences with our thoughts and our choices.... Not enjoying your experiences?
Then karma will teach you a hard lesson so that maybe you will create something better for yourself!
"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of the One who called you out of darkness and into His marvelous light." 1 Peter 2:9
When I was a youth ministry intern at FBC Ruston, I taught a lesson at fall retreat to a group of high school girls. I gave each of them a crown, a label and a marker and that night we wrote "Holy" on our labels, put on our crowns and talked about what it meant to be "chosen". How would our daily choices be different if the words chosen and holy were displayed on us for all to see? Would we talk to people differently? Would we spend our time and money differently? Would we be more forgiving of others? Of ourselves? I don't know if those girls remember the lesson but I've never forgotten it. Numerous times in my life the Lord has whispered to my heart "Are you living chosen or are you living defeated?" When I choose to see myself as the Lord sees me (chosen, holy, set apart) then it's easier to not believe the lies that swirl around in my head. The ones that tell me that I'm not enough or that I'm going to fail so why try or that if people really knew me that they probably wouldn't like me. To me, living chosen means living up to the potential that the Lord sees in me. It means choosing to believe that what the Lord says about me is true. It is forgetting what is in the past and embracing the mercy He has for me on this day because yesterday is over. It means reminding myself that no where in the Bible does the Lord tell anyone that they aren't "good enough" so why would I let myself for one second believe that? So on this first day of a brand new week, I am posting this to remind myself to "live chosen" because when I do I get to "proclaim the praises of the One who called me out of darkness and into His marvelous light." and that is the greatest honor there is. .
Painting: Me- cause sometimes I paint what the Lord is teaching me 🙂
Every day we're blessed with a new opportunity to rewrite our lives and our futures... Don't like your waistline? Change it.
Don't like your job? Change it!
You're not stuck where you're at... Make some changes to move towards your goals, and start TODAY!
There are seasons in your life that at times you don't know which way to turn. At times emotionally and physically drained and you have lack of support, and your Mind and body is screaming at you to just give up on everything.
What I recommend to you, even though your going through tough times and you don't have that support keep pressing on through the hurt and pain.
Life is so demanding, even in the pursuit of your passion and dreams, we can also experience Burn Out like when we are working in corporate America or as a student, because if you don't take the time to replenish yourselves daily life happens and grows on you like a heavy burden, and the load gets heavy as you try to move foward. Never give up if you need time away to think and let go of things that overwhelm you, do it, but then come back and continue until you reach your goals.
True success is when we have all 3 things in order in our lives 1. Spiritual, 2. Family, 3. Business.
Choices. Choices. Choices. What's are you feeding today?
"Everyone has darkness in them and everyone has light. For all of us, this is a constant battle - but the one who wins is the one we feed." - Russell Simmons
My last cigarette I ever smoked was on this lake 10 years ago. I was a 2 pack a day smoker who quit cold turkey and have never once regretted it. Everyday we wake up we have the choice to do what makes us happy and what makes us feel good. We have the choice to love ourselves in a way that makes the world around us more beautiful. For those of you out there facing the struggle, I certainly believe in you... Now all you have to do is BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!! Peace & Love - Scotty J.
