Life can be a journey but for most my life it was a destination. It’s only been the past 10 years or so when I decided to explore a new me. The other me was afraid to disappoint anyone but especially those in authority. I felt I had no option than to obey even without relationship. This area ruled my being. Unable to say no was how I handled my inner and outer world. I was indecisive, unstable and unable to be happy with myself. This has changed though it took what seems like a century. I’m not as fearful. I do not feel like I’m a failure. I have not ditched authority – I just now realize I’m in authority too. This means I have input for my own situations. This was critical to step into.
Interestingly today is my 17th wedding anniversary. I’ve had a lot of changes take place over the last almost 20 years. It’s been an adventure!
Be encouraged to continue taking the steps toward knowing yourself. You are worth it and in the process you might find a different you- a Brave new you. You may find yourself learning new skills and becoming a better you. A different path. The same path. A new respect. A change in career. Giving more. Living more. Loving more. Not everyone will like or embrace your change. Not everyone will desire your renovation. You have to decide. Some want to control you – not get to know you. Some see you as a project not a person to relate to. That’s okay. You do you. Embrace the different new you.
Free gift for you
Become a different you!

I call it the process of progress. Many people wonder if they are taking three steps forward and two steps back. I find perspective is everything. You may feel stuck like a hamster in a wheel of sabotage, sickness or death filled thoughts. When properly identified, you can have most cycles broken and your heart rewired. It can happen in a moment. I have found most the time, you get to renovate your mind one moment at a time. You get to make a lot of new little decisions that take you over time into a brave new you. The beauty of time lapse is the maturity in the processing of progress. I work with people overtime to unlock the why behind the what so they can recognize it when it knocks on their door in a different package. I help them remove what has caused them to remain in torment, turmoil and overwhelming stress and paralysis. It is a deep work. But it is a long lasting work. It takes patience and kindness to walk out life with people. Sometimes, I have a client that wants a quick trip to the store to get an answer. Most times the key to competency, security and loving yourself is to go deep so you can go far. It is not a drive through experience with a 99 cent menu. Many little decisions every day allow you to change the direction of your body, soul and spirit. I cannot overemphasize the power of the process of your progress. Do not forsake the process of progress. When choosing a different future, I want to encourage you not to allow yourself to regret. Regret is a powerful foe. It will bring you back into a hamster wheel. Sometimes, we unlock 50 years of living in a direction that unbeknownst to that person was not healthy. All of a sudden a lifetime passes before their eyes and they realize there is no gaining it back.
Do not focus on what was behind you.
With intention, take a step forward And mature in the process of your progress.

Braver Saturday -Time may heal but scars run deep. I know a family. The woman told God that their relationship was going on the back burner. That she would pick up her relationship with Him later. The results? Marriage ripped apart. Families and friends ripped apart. Divorce. Is it all fine now? Sure. Time may heal but scars run deep. Sometimes wrecking your own and other people’s lives is avoidable. If we just listen and obey. Be righteous even when it hurts. Even when you are so deep into it that you feel there is no way out. Cry out to Father. He has the solutions. HE has not left you. If you are in rebellion and you still hear His voice then I encourage you to not take advantage of the grace but tune into His righteousness and let him lead you. Who knows? Maybe He has a different or better plan? A byproduct of relationship with Father is you want to please Him. In this place called Grace, is there still obedience? Did Jesus obey so that we did not have to??? Is that really the grace Father has for His children? To do the wrong thing on purpose is still called rebellion even in grace. Kinda like a little kid who is asked to make their bed by their parents. Perhaps disobedience is at times just immaturity? Father has no condemnation but He does have correction that brings direction. Thoughts? Love-d #moms #marriage #church #jesus #death #life #professional #fit #blogger #faith #blog #instablog
Braver Saturday – One more weight.
One more crunch.
One more plank.
One more time.
One more day. I’m alive and thankful for strength. #bebraver Don’t give up. It will be worth it. Love-d
Braver Wednesday –
Today gloom and doom visited me. Distracted, I almost let them in my home. But, I remembered their pungent smell, their destructive presence, and their confused lifestyle. I remembered when they exited my body. I remembered how I told them not to return. So, it’s been a while old friends…I recognize your voices and continue to say no. One day you will show up and find nobody here that you know. #bebraver Say no to your enemy til you yourself get the picture. Love, d
Super Saturday – You have purpose friend. Regardless of your yesterday – your very breath gives you purpose. Peer through the dark. Wait. You’re too close to sunrise to give up now.
Fearless Friday – In due season there will be a breaking through. Troubled wares come to all. It threatens to overwhelm you- even drown you. You remain on your back attempting to rest. You feel you can stay afloat if you keep your head above water. So you float in the troubled waters all the while cognizant that you cannot remain on your back forever. Then you get an inkling of an idea. Why don’t you stand up? Thought. You reach your feet down to find the water is only waist deep. Stand up in the troubled waters. You may find your solution is to walk out to shore instead…
Until soon- d
Fearless Friday -Pain has a way of debilitating a person. Your days miserable. Your nights sleepless. Constant agony brings a forced smile. You want to hide reality but authenticity calls you. The last thing you want to be is a downer but really what is there to be up about. People don’t want to be around you because everybody wants happy. Yet happy is a memory. This is my question- how do you help someone who is in chronic pain?
1. Don’t not see them just because you don’t like their negative attitude. 2. Don’t not call them just because you don’t know what to say. Don’t condemn what you aren’t experiencing.
Listen. Just learn how to love by reaching out…one day at a time…one call at a time and one visit at a time.
