#thejoyoflosingyourjob . ♥️ I find it pretty darn amazing after 1.5 years of releasing my book 📘 how many people still reach out to share their stories of JOY, HOPE, resilience, tenacity, hard work, perseverance 💪🏻. Stories of how losing their job 💼, or walking away 🚶🏻♂️🚶🏻♀️from one that made them miserable 😩, was the BEST thing to happen! 😃. So let’s start something new...this Friday and every Friday moving forward I will post new stories and helpful information on how to take back control of your professional life, walk in your power, and truly create the life you’ve only ever dreamed of. It’s possible, they did it, I did it, we’re doing it everyday, so can you! 🙌🏻 Are you ready to join my team? Let’s do this! 🌟#takebackyourpower#takethisjobandshoveit#freedombuilder#intransition#newbeginnings#freshstart
My confidence has been boosted this past week. Not because of something I did but because Isaiah 43:1-2 has been my rock. So much so, I’ve been rehearsing it every day. God has been reminding me that I don’t have to be afraid, He is WITH me! I am His!! 🙏🏽🙌🏽💃🏽 #ThisIsTheConfidenceWeHave#GodsChild#GoodGoodFather#NoReasonToFear#InTransition#ANWA#OnlineMember#ItsMakingSeason#Affirmed#ASeatAtTheTable#TheTablesAreTurning “But now says the Lord, that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee O Israel, Fear not; for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by your name. You are mine. And when you pass through the waters, I will be with you. And through the rivers they will not overflow you: when you walk through the fire you will not be burned. Neither will the flame kindle upon you!”
I haven’t #mused “out loud” in awhile so I figured I would spout some #foodforthought for a moment. If for nothing else, just to remind myself that good things are happening and that positive change is just over yonder on the horizon.
#Recovery does indeed change everything, for some it’s a big change but, in my opinion, for most the change is probably a bit more subtle. For me it definitely is, some days I do wake up and feel like I’m in the exact same space I was before I decided to abstain but thanks to the guidance of some old heads in the game and my own gusto I do recognize that I’m in an entire different lane. A lane I’ve honestly never existed in for my entire life.
Since getting clean and serene desires have morphed into measurable goals and objectives. Challenging myself feels like less of a chore and more of a necessity. Nothing’s going to happen overnight but now I appreciate the importance of patience and the meaning of resolve.
Instant gratification is a trap I fell into way too often and now I understand that nothing worth having comes quick and things that come quick are usually fleeting. Whether it’s setting physical goals with fitness or financial ones with forex life has now become measurable and that’s the major change I HAVE EXPERIENCED with MY recovery.
Days do get shitty sometimes and some moments lonely. But where a joint or a drink would be used to subdue those feelings now I embrace them and ask myself what can I do to pull myself out of it. The solutions don’t always work but they are definitely better options than the former.
Anyway, this is all just a ramble because I felt like posting this after @sober.ly dropped this post. Recovery brings change and almost always that change is fore the better. So I posted other pics that illustrate the little changes that have happened since I entered recovery. #sober#cleanandserene#changegonecome#changes#recoverylife#evolution#soberaf#odaat#justfortoday#keepitsimple#intransition#newme still the #oldme#inmyfeelings 😂

Hesitant to post due to my belly flap showing. However, it's a battle scar. You don't lose 150 lbs and Immediately look like Barbie. I am hoping to get it removed, but why can't I be happy with my body now? It's been a lot of hard work and sacrafice. So, here is my pic, unfiltered, and my pouch. Deal with it.
What I called tonight’s dinner.. Portobello mushroom cap, tomato and squash( with coconut and almond milk) burger with vegenaise. Spiced that joint up (turmeric, cayenne, ginger, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and himalayan pink salt) and I’m tearing it up! I love me some mushrooms and tomatoes! #Vegan#1MonthIn#InTransition#IEatPlants#ILoveMushrooms#VeganFreshmanFoods
WHO R YOU?
One of the biggest questions of life...who am I? We all search for the answer to this basic question. And its from this very foundational question we live life by. We then proceed to ask what is our purpose? Many of us go onto finding our purpose before we find out who we are because we put so much emphasis on what we do...our jobs...our associatations and not just us simply being. I'm so thankful for the current messy very flexible season I'm in because it's restored me back to who I am. The only person who can answer that basic question is the most amazing God in the entire universe and beyond. I truly dare you to ask, whisper, and wait and listen to who He says you are. Drown out all the noise and what everyone else thinks and begin again...a child...a son...a daughter of God. :) #simple#pause#intransition#reborn#love#peace#joy#life#renewal#mindset#basics#truth#identity#iamwhoyousayiam#godisamazing#reflection#slowdown#justbe#beauitiful#childofgod#ohana#nogetsleftbehind#freedom
