When You Let Go and Just Be

Sooooo... for so long I struggled with a fear of heights. I wouldn't go near anything that was too high for me to jump, grab hold to or control.  Today I realeased that fear and did something that took my breath away. Look at what I would have missed if I had allowed my fear to control me. This changed my life forever and made me aware that I control my fear. Once you understand that, you can do anything, but fail. 

God gives us each the ability to soar in any and everything. We doubt ourselves which limits our growth. As of this day, my fear from heights has been reduced. I no longer will allow fear to keep me from living life free and to experience what once held me back. 

I challenge you to try something that freightens you. Make goals and keep them. Today is a great day to start.  Until next time, blessings and peace unto you.

It Ain't Been Easy, but Its Been Worth It

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy. Love does not boast." 1 Corinthians 13 4:8

Relationships are overrated. Too many people want but don't want to give. In order to get the most out of anything, you must be willing to give all you've got. This is how we do it and make it work.

Twenty-five years ago I was his friend, his laughing buddy and somebody he could confide in. I didn't know where this would lead. I wasn't desperate nor in a hurry.  I obtained my college degree and building my life was the most important thing. I was a good woman and deserved a good man. 

On June 15, 1996, my life changed forever. Already accomplished and sort of into myself, God made the decision to make this day happen. I didn't deny it as I was ready for a different phase. It came with adjustment, resistence, doubt, joy, pain and gain. I no longer could think of myself as an addition had been added to my life.

Twenty-one years later, we've grown together and as one, identified our strengths and magnified our weaknesses. We still have our own individual characteristics, but they have become intertwined into one. 

Be open to change as change starts with you.

When I observe my surroundings and those in my age group, most are divorced and/or working on their 2nd, 3rd and even 4th marriage. When asked how we did it and continue to do it, my only and first response is God. To me that is the one and only reason as He has been the glue. In everything we do and have done, God has been the core of our decision making. No.. we are not perfect, nor do I claim to think we are. This is just what has worked in our life from day one and continues on today. 

He that finds a wife finds a good thing." Proverbs 18:22

Out of all honesty, there have been more good days versus bad. Most of the bad had to do with me being selfish and impatient. As soon as I became aware of this, I began to modify my behavior. That's the key! Once you recognize who you are and what you want to become, you adjust your mindset to fit that idea. 

I want to be the very best wife and mother. I want to live a life that my kids model as a map for their success in life and relationships. This perspective gave me an ultimatium to recognize it's not all about me. 

What God has joined together, let no man separate

I'm glad I took the chance to open myself up for love, wait on God to deliver and be obedient with His request. Marriage has made me a better person and mother. I believe if you wait, pray and go about your life, you will encounter what God chooses to bless you with in a spouse.

Beware: Keep a Green Life

When I was younger I loved watching Popeye the Sailor man. He was my hero. Not only was he strong, he also loved Olive Oyl. 

Just like Olive Oyl, I was skinny. I didn't eat anything green as I thought all of it was gross. Besides, who thought of health back then. I was a picky eater. I ate the same foods with no variety. Chicken was and still is my favorite. Nevertheless, I had to eat whatever was cooked regardless of being picky or not. It was not an option in my house.

As an adult, I choose what I want to eat with options.  And of course I now pay attention to being healthy. I watch, I read, I listen and I adhere to how important it is to keep it green in your life. 

Today I live green. It is a daily part of my diet. Even if I don't like it, I make myself eat it because of the health benefits of green.

Popeye had spinach to be strong. Today nutritionist state not only will you be strong, but you will help fight disease by eating spinach because it is full of antioxidants. 

Spinach can be eaten raw or cooked. More vitamins are preserved if eaten raw. I often put spinach in smoothies, on sandwiches and in my veggie dishes. Anyway you eat it or drink it, you can't go wrong.

Being a #purposedwoman requires you to take care of yourself first. As we know it to be true, women take care of everyone as well and sometimes before themselves.

So here's to a healthy lifestyle and healthy eating. May we prosper in a life full of green.

How to Save More and Spend Less on Purpose

Money-management-pic.jpg

Talking about money is a pain point for many. It can cause you to become stressed and eventually lead to depression. Money struggles, lack of knowledge and concern can clearly drive one over the edge. Money woes is a real problem faced by many.

[bctt tweet="Gaining control of your finances can change your life." username="NichelleWomack"] One of the main reasons why people go bankrupt is because they cannot control their spending habits. Many of them spend far more than they have. Instead of living within their means, they are living outside and above.

Gaining control of your spending habits can prevent financial spirals such as bankruptcy. One of the main reasons why people go bankrupt is because of a lack of control over their finances. Many of them spend far more than they have. Instead of living within their means, they are living outside and above. Typically the first sign of poor money management is maxed out credit cards and the salary is spent the minute it comes in. Another is paying bills sporadically and not in their entirety.

Going bankrupt is a sign of neglect and it could be bad for your reputation. Bankruptcy used to have a major stigma attached to it. However, with so many people headed in that direction, it has now become the norm. When you file bankruptcy, your credit report is no longer clean, and this makes it very difficult to get a loan. It can be very difficult to get new credit or even buy a house. This stigma can last upwards to 10 years.

The best way to manage your finances is to save more spend less. If you find this to be a difficult task, the following tips can assist you with getting on track.

  1. Automated payments. You could enroll as many due accounts to automatically be debited from your checking or savings account on a monthly basis. When the bills are due to be paid, the amount set will automatically be taken out of your account.  All you have to do is make sure you leave enough money in your account prior to this occurrence. If you have a little extra income, try paying more on your bills than what is due. Not only will this allow you to pay them off sooner, you will also have extra cash to save. Automated payments can help you get on track with your finances and manage them in a more responsible way.

 

  1. Less leisure and frivolous spending. Most of the time people spend money on things that are not essentials like eating out, going to the movies and buying things they don't need. Instead of eating out and spending money unnecessarily, cook a meal at home for much less. Instead of going to the movie theater, wait until the movie comes out on DVD or on your selected cable network. ( SAVE MONEY ON YOUR HOME ENTERTAINMENT)  Besides, the cost to go to the movies has skyrocketed over the years. Another way to save money is to schedule as many errands as you can in one trip. This can help you save money on gas and give you time to do other things. Another way to save is to shop only when you need to shop and do it with a list. This way you won't be going into the store and on scavenger hunt buying things you don't really need.

 

  1. Save every penny, nickel, dime and quarter.  Yes... change adds up! Try saving change that you keep in your car, around the house, and on the ground. Every day I find change laying somewhere. You might be surprised how quickly it adds up. As an example, for a whole month, I had the opportunity to save $50 dollars just with coins I would have tossed to the side unknowingly. To add to the fun, grocery stores and banks now have coin counter machines to help you count your change.

 

  1. Make saving money a game. You shouldn’t be the only one saving. Get inspired and teach your family and friends to save as well. Children should know not to ask for large amounts of money for trivial things and they should learn this at an early age.  They should understand the value of a dollar and strive to save it for a specific purpose. These teachings can carry them far in life with money management and saving. Set a goal and a date as to how much money you want to save. Upon reaching that goal, treat yourself to something special. Without going overboard of course.

 

  1. Change your pattern of thought. The mindset of saving can be thought of as depressing. Like really? What's the use of saving when you can't take it with you? If the thought is to save on purpose with the intention of using the money to stay free from debt, perhaps it will be motivating from that perspective. Stores set up traps to entice you. Commercials play on TV to lure you in. Gain greater control of your thoughts and understand that every dollar spent comes with a cost. You don’t have to be thinking about money or things all the time, but you should be thinking about the future and saving for harder times ahead. Somehow or another, hard times seem to find you when you least expect it.

 

Learn to read daily affirmations and seek out subliminal messages as a way to change your thought patterns. Set goals, plan for specific things in advance and be purposed in your desires to control money and not let it control you. Whenever you feel like spending money on something you don’t really need, repeat these statements.....

"It is imperative that I save for my future."

"My future depends on me."

"Money is a tool and I should use it as such."

"I will not let money control me. Instead, I will control it."
