God has so many reminders in His word that encourages us to fear not.

Lockdown Times – How Are You Doing?

 

How are you doing?

Honestly, I never thought that in my lifetime, I would ever experience living with a global pandemic. It is a unique and painful experience. Painful in the fact that so many people globally have lost their lives and their family will not have the chance to bury their loved ones in the way they deserve. In the UK the maximum number of people allowed to attend a funeral is five.

The coronavirus has changed our whole way of life, how we interact with each other, and it has revealed how frail our way of life has become.
The things that we valued before the pandemic are no longer critical, and the people we hold in such high esteem are now no longer relevant. We are now placing a much higher value on people in the medical profession, delivery drivers, bus and train drivers, cleaners and people who work in supermarkets. They are the new superheroes.

We have had to come to terms with ourselves as country after country instituted national lockdown. As I am writing this post, we are still under lockdown. Isolation has forced families to stop, catch up with each other and reestablish relationships.

The lockdown has also highlighted the dangerous position that victims of domestic violence will have to endure. In the United Kingdom, there has been a sharp increase in phone calls to domestic violence charities and sadly, an increase in the number of deaths.

We must all come to realise that we are a global family, and there are more things that unite us than divide us.

Leave a comment below to let me know how you are coping with the lockdown.

My Workshop Review! God is Good

I held my second workshop on 3rd November 2019. For me, it was an absolute miracle because I sometimes see myself as that shy, introverted little girl who stuttered. How can I lead a group of women through a workshop and get them to understand that there is more to them than they could ever realise.

I did what I could do and allowed God to do the rest. Trust me, I prayed and prayed that each woman would receive something that would challenge them to dust of their complacency and procrastination so they could move forward and be the best that they could be.

God has given all of us something to do. Our gift is never for us but always for someone else. It takes courage to use it for the benefit of humanity because we are always looking at our human limitations and negative experiences. We have to feel the fear and do it anyway. Take that step and believe that we can do what we came here to do and be the blessing to others that God called us to be.

I want to challenge you to take that step because someone is waiting on your gift. Someone needs your bravery and courage. Someone needs to hear your testimony, and someone needs to hear that you overcame and won. Humanity needs your strength and courage to keep going for themselves.

How long will you sit on what God gave you? How long will you allow your self-esteem issues to block you from becoming whom God created you to be? It’s time for a change, its time for you to get started and realise that YES you can do it. Your challenges in life have prepared you for this very moment.

So plan, set your goals, take that step and watch your rewards manifest.

Are Your Negative Habits Holding You Back?

 

We all are guilty of having some bad habits and how many times have you promised yourself that you were going to do something about them. I have personally come to realize that bad habits can hinder someone from making the progress they desire in life.

Bad habits are like the handbrake of a car, you are ready to go, but you can’t drive off because you have not released the handbrake (habit) that can provide an invisible block to receiving the best in life.

Pause for a moment and think of someone whose bad habits irritate you…….. Have you thought of someone? 🙂 Well think about it, you can see someone else’s pattern and how it affects them now think about how your harmful habits are affecting you and the perception other people may have of you. Please take time to think about this and how you intend to move forward and change or replace them.

Consider these 3 tips:-

1. Join forces with someone so they can support you in your journey. See them as an accountability partner.
2. Consider surrounding yourself with people who live the way you desire to live.
3. Cut out as many triggers as possible.

Changing habits does not occur over night it starts one step and one day at a time. Take action and start adjusting from today.

Taking Back Who You Are!

During periods of life you can give ourself away in the belief that the person you give yourself to will not take you for granted. When you give the best of yourself to someone and you have not taken the time to qualify the relationship, hurt and pain is inevitable.

I want to share with you three things that you may need to consider so you can take back who you are and start living the life that you were born to live. These three things are just to give you the push you may need to start this important process.

1. Learn to say no without feeling guilty.

2. Start investing in YOU ( take a course, start reading books that will empower you to make a change).

3. Use your failures and past mistakes to propel you forward.

Each of these points can take a life time to work out but the most important thing is for you to start working on yourself and for you to become the best person that you can be.
