Choices

Sometimes, we may think our parents are being mean when they tell us the truth. Our mom, a single mom, knew the extent of her teaching. She did not force her life’s principles on us; she left it to us, many times, to choose the best route or solution for an issue.

I inform our children that I cannot make all of your life choices. “I can help you build your foundation and give you the resources and some tools to help you along the way.”

I let our children know that I am here for them, and I do not mind sharing my knowledge and wisdom. For the age appropriate situations, though, I encourage our children to weight their options, assess advantages and disadvantages, and be decisive.

We must help our children to assess the reasons behind their choices. By helping our children to understand their core and their state of emotions and feelings, we can help empower them to be their best. I did not write to push them….but to help them from the inside out.

If we do not help our children to see the power in choices and the possible consequences, who will?

How are you helping your children learn the power of choices?

Make this life great!

Our Circumstances Do Not Define Us

Good morning Spiritual Beings!

Our circumstances do not dictate how we treat our children and others. We make a bold choice to act in love, peace, and understanding. We allow our children to see that life is a journey and lessons will be learned, we apologize quickly for our lessons learned, and help our children to see that they have a reason for being here.

Parenting is a calling & a journey to reach our highest self and help children to do the same; therefore, parenting is a win-win experience. Each day that we have breath, God entrusts us to do what is right regardless of our circumstances and how we feel.

Can you imagine the hard work that goes into making a brain, heart, organs, and tissues and embodying specific gifts and talents? God is a master storyteller. Our experiences are not in vain. You have the power to meet & transcend your life experiences.

If we are stupid, never amount to anything, a failure, and other false statements, then our Creator is stupid and without potential, as well. For, are we not made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26)?

May you know how powerful you are and stand in your power.

Make this life great—one person & one family at a time,

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans (Proverbs 16: 3).

Jesus said “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them. For the kingdom of heaven belongs such as these” (Matthew 19:14).

Single moms: Quality trumps Quantity

Some may say you are not enough.

Some may blame you for not holding your marriage together.

Some may believe that your home is unstable.

Some may think that you are not doing enough.

Some may make sarcastic remarks.

Some may want you to beg them for help.

Some do not realize that there is a God who knows all and sees all. You are not alone. Even if you are a single mom or parent, “all things are possible.” Pass on the legacy that fuels your child’s core (courage, determination, faith, and perseverance).

Motherhood is your calling right now. Find your direction & strength in the Creator.

Make this life great!

Moments

I have had better days.  I did not feel well yesterday. I checked my blood pressure, and it was higher than normal.  I have noticed that there seems to be a poopy day right before a breakthrough day.  I can blame how I felt on hormones, low vitamin D, and others.  Or, I can face the truth of what I am feeling and know that my emotions and feelings are leading me to my highest self.  Without all of the busy work now, I have time to weed out things that are not working, be consistent in my thoughts and behaviors, and focus on my work as a mother, wife, and spiritual being.

Mothers always have a choice

mama 2018

It is a great day to be alive. I am so thankful to be the mother of our beautiful two children. My journey started later than others and at the perfect time. I had my first child at the age of 36.
I remember being unsure about bringing children into the world because I was afraid of what could happen to them. I saw danger instead of possibilities.  I was not even sure I could have children, yet I always wanted a boy and a girl.
I do not like living in fear, and years ago, I realized that I could not change something without belief and faith in myself.  I am no longer afraid because I stand in the power of shaping our children into courageous, loving, and powerful, and strong beings who can make positive impacts throughout their journey. I can help shape how they take care of their body, feel about themselves, and how they face their life experiences.
I am so thankful for my mother, Thelma Jones. She decided to leave a relationship that was not working. Raising children in an abusive home was not the answer. With three kids under the age of 5, a suitcase, and 4,000 in her pocket, we traveled from Memphis Tennessee to Illinois by a Greyhound bus in search for a better life.

There are no regrets when you believe that life is for you. Our life experiences are to make us better and to help direct our paths.
I am forever grateful for the principles that our mother taught us. I continue to keep our mother’s principles close to my heart. When I was unsure of my abilities to be the mother I wanted to be, I thought of my mother.  She did it. Why can’t I?  Our mother’s principles brought me peace of mind. Being a mother of purpose is not always easy. It helps to have guiding principles to stay focused.
Here are 10 of our mother’s many principles:
1. Give from the heart and expect nothing in return.
2. Keep on trucking no matter what lies ahead
3. Be grateful for what you have
4. Be bold -Ask for what you want.
5. Live another day-You never know what the next day will bring
6. Take care of yourself-There is only one you
7. No excuses-Work from the truth
8. If you are sorry, then stop the behavior
9. Listen more and talk less
10. Break the Cycle-Change what is not working
What principles did your mother teach you?

Too many times the outward approval of others becomes the goal of our actions instead of being true to ourselves. When we seek the approval of others, we are saying that we are not good enough, and that we need others to validate our worth. My mother would remind us that when you do something for another person, do not stay stuck there waiting on applauses, awards, or anything else. Do it and keep moving.

When we do things from the heart, we are not concerned about another’s reaction, even so much as a “thank you”. Our intentions are in alignment with a higher power and not for show or approval. Our satisfaction comes from the ability to give instead of receiving.

Thank you Mom!
