LONG POST ALERT
Yesterday as I volunteered and help at my Sisters event called “Purity Talks” (which if you missed it you missed out). One of the panellists came up to me and shared how she remembers my face but younger. This was very bazaar to me, as I felt I recognised her voice but couldn’t pin it.
As we started talking trying to figure it out, it was like a bingo moment. She use to work at my PRU which stands for pupil referral unit. This is a place where children/young people go when they’re permanently excluded for school (I told you I had a past). Then we realised she also use to work at the probation service, I also served my suspended sentence (yeah I got arrested). She was so overwhelmed at the transformation in my life and most importantly how I had given my life to Christ. She then went on and said something quite profound she said “never write people off because you never know where the will end up”. I share because the way God has been working in my life is at times unexplainable. She sent me this note above and I was almost drawn to tear (I have cried much this week so my tears wouldn’t flow as easy lol). Someone wrote this to God on behalf of me. What we both had in common within our thought process, was how much God loves unconditionally and gives unmerited grace. If you ain’t tried Jesus I dare you to before 2019. He turned my life all the way round. #theinfinitewoman#desiretoinspiremums
Old habits die hard ✌🏻 .
Why do people think results happen overnight? Newsflash 💥 shit never happens overnight. You’re not going to wake up one day feeling confident. You’re not gonna wake up one day and notice you’ve lost 20 lbs in one night. You’re not going to wake up one day and be happy. You’re not gonna wake up one day and be successful. .
It takes 2 things: Choice & Consistency. You have to choose to do the things that will move you closer to your goal. And then, you have to do these things over and over and over again. That’s it. .
You want to feel confident? Face your fears & do the shit that scare you and repeat. You’ll gain confidence. You want to lose weight? Do the things that move you closer to this goal and repeat. You’ll start seeing results. You want to be happy? Make the decision that you ARE happy & see the things that already make you feel happy and repeat. You’ll be happy. You want to be successful? Decide that you already are & do all the things that are proving this and then... Yup... You got it REPEAT. You’ll be successful. .
It IS that simple. What isn’t simple is getting out of your own head long enough to realize this. If you can take some time to get out of your own way and recognize this, then you can do anything you set your mind to. ✨

Even when life is sad, hard, and challenging — we can always choose HOW we think about something. We may not be able to choose our feelings, but we can change them, depending on how and what we allow ourselves to play repeatedly in our heads.⠀
This doesn’t discount mental health problems, because of course, you can’t think away anxiety, depression, or grief. But even when those things are present (I currently have all three), you can still make some level of choice as to what you’re going to accept as truth. Even when anxiety is wrecking my brain, I can tell myself whether to believe it or not.⠀
Even when my heart and head feel crushed from grief, I can still tell myself that it will get better (vs. telling myself that I’ll always feel this bad). It doesn’t fix it in the moment, but telling myself that it will get better allows me to properly process what is happening now without the fear that it’ll always be this way.⠀
These might be small, but they give some power and some choice in the midst of painful things we can’t control.⠀
The holidays are great, but for people dealing with grief, loss, or other challenges, it can all feel magnified. If you’re having a hard time, just know that you’re not alone. If you don’t feel merry and jolly and happy — that’s OK. There are no laws about how to handle the holidays. Do what you can, and don’t bury your feelings just to make other people happy.⠀
Honesty with yourself, and others too, is more helpful in processing grief or hard times than just pretending nothing is wrong. ♥
When I made a decision to live out my calling and set my Mission in motion, I felt a BIG release, a big weight lifted off me, I felt scared, yet I felt excited, elated, delighted, and happier. Yet I also quickly learned that birthing my mission wasn't and isn't just for me.
The truth is it's not all about you!
The IMPACT you desire to make in the world is going help and shift someone's life.
But if you don't set your mission in motion; how would they get their shift?
If you are ready to answer your heart's calling.
