All about you

Not happy with your life? Then change it! If you are living to please everyone else then you will never be satisfied with life or be happy with yourself. You must decide what you want out of life and go for it. I know from experience that it is easier said then done. I used to feel guilty about putting myself first then I learned for my sanity that there are times that I must put myself first. No one else was stepping into play to put me first and the reason is because that was my job. I’m not saying make everything about you but what I am saying is make sure you are not left out.

You are the one that controls your happiness! Don’t be a doormat!

Why some doors all of a sudden slam closed

I have recently had to deal with an unexpected change in my life. Did I get upset? Yes? How was all this new news going to affect my life? As soon as I received the news I called my husband whom promptly told me not to worry about it, their loss and now I would have time for other things.

The next day it was still tender news and still a shock. Then all of a sudden I started remembering bills that were upcoming. How was we going to cover them? I started stressing and getting upset. That is when I set down and prayed about it all again. I felt a sudden peace go over me and I knew God had it handled. He always does but sometimes we jump the gun and try to take care of things on our own.

Now a few days later everything is falling into place and I can see how some things are already working. I know we will be fine and I also know God has something in mind for me. Sometimes he has to slam a door closed to get our attention because we were not listening before. Several months ago I felt a strong urge to leave the job but couldn’t bring myself to do it, I kept talking myself out of it. So now God didn’t give me an option, he did it for me.

So if something sudden happens in your life – Remember – God is just getting your attention! He has something far better in mind.

Key to Great Relationship

I started out trying to say that one must have honesty in order to have a great relationship but in truth there is more than just honesty.  There are several things that make up a great relationship. 

Everyone wants that soul-mate, one of a kind, best love ever, fairy tale relationship but unfortunately not everyone wants to put in the effort. It takes both people putting in time and energy. Every relationship needs to start out as friends. Friends will do anything for each other and love each other regardless. When you have a true friendship then honesty, trust, understanding, and communication follow. When couples are friends and communicate then they have the freedom that comes with it because they trust each other to be honest.

The key to honesty is that you are HONEST about everything regardless of what it is. It is better to get the truth out in the open and deal with it as it comes. The most common problem couples face is that they worry about hurting the other person’s feelings, being embarrassed or the most common – what they don’t know won’t hurt them oi- unfortunately it does. This is where communication comes into play. Couples must learn how to sit down and talk to each other about everything regardless of what the issues are.


Good Luck and Best Wishes to a Great Relationship!

Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones

We all need words of encouragement from time to time. There are so many days that we ask ourselves “Why me?”, “How much more?” and we wonder “What else?”. It feels like we are constantly butting our heads with someone or we keep meeting a brick wall. It is times like this that really makes us wonder if we should stop and give up or should we keep trying, we get so tired of making decisions and having to fight for everything we have or do. We keep going because in the end it is all worth it.

I have had many ups and downs in my life and have had people question me on it and how I do it. Let me tell you – anything worth doing – isn’t easy. I have learned something that I fondly call my stepping stones of life. Hence, the name of my blog. I have learned that if we just take one stepping stone at a time then we can accomplish more and it just gets easier and the number one thing is to trust in God.

I know that none of this comes easy but I hope that with inspirational and encouraging words and understanding that some of the things that I share with you will help you through your most trying and difficult times. Please feel free to give feedback and ask questions.

May GOD Bless YOU!

And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appoined season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faith.
