4 Questions: Are you are pulled in a million directions? Do you have a ton of people that rely on you? Do you ever take time out to do something for yourself?....and Lastly, Who will take care of you if you don't take care of yourself?
Today's topic has to do with self care and simply remembering that you have to take care of you no matter how important you are to those around you. In fact, the more important you are to those around you, the more obligated you are to take care of yourself. Taking care of others is a natural instinct that women have, instinctively there is something that clicks in our heads that tells us if it has to get done then we have to be the ones that do it. If your anything like me, you'd rather do it yourself to make sure that it gets done with a level of excellence instead of just barely making the grade. Although there is nothing wrong with "getting things done", there needs to be a minute, hour, or day where nothing gets done. Doing nothing does not necessarily mean that you are not being productive. The mind, body, and spirit all need time to process, recuperate, and recharge in order to do it all over again tomorrow. When we constantly give and pour into others without REPLENISHING ourselves, we will find that we are left with an empty jar and a full mind. Spend some time with you, get to know yourself on a new level, and give all of your worries to God. After all, He's fully equipped to handle all of your cares, offer peace & solace as He works on your behalf, and provide a solution that will always be in your best interest. Challenge: Pick any day this week and choose a block of time (hours or day) to turn off your cell phone and indulge in something that makes you feel great, whether it's a good book, a Mani & Pedi, or a drive to nowhere. Let me know how much fun you had with your new bestie.....she's the coolest!
Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

Hello Friends!...Welcome to my blog, my thoughts, and my ministry. *Clears throat loudly*....A little about me (or a lot)..Although I am and will always be a Brooklyn girl at heart....I currently reside in Hampton VA and I love it. I know that has God has strategically placed me here to align me with my purpose. I have no problem using my voice to glorify God as we are supposed to glorify Him in all that we do. God took the thing that used to get me into the most trouble and used it for His purpose. He has used my "real talk" method of delivery to reach those that need to hear the message in a way that they can receive and relate to. I am in the process of writing my book "Molding Me" so I am proud to report that I already have 6 chapters completed....it is quite interesting if I must say so myself. It is a detailed account of my journey from sinister to minister and it is a page turner. Don't worry MOST names will be changed to protect the the innocent and the guilty (it's not a tell all-it's a tell most...sigh!). Let's just say I've come a long way peeps!....Thank God for change because I don't think the world was ready for me before Jesus got His hands on me!
