God Is All You Need!

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭19‬ NIV)

There’s nothing more gratifying than to know that God is and will always be there to meet your needs. Whether it’s health, success, happiness, love or wealth, God will supply it in your life if you let Him. All you have to do is let Him in and He will make you better. He will make you excel. He will make you the happiest you’ve ever been. He will love you unconditionally and will provide for you beyond measure. You will not need anything else because God is all you need.

Happy Sunday! Be blessed!

Think Thursday: Make Stress Your Friend!

20140611-223514-81314604.jpg
Stress is a body’s way of reacting to a challenge or a stressor such as an environmental condition or a stimulus.

For years, it’s been known to be the “public health enemy” and a condition that normally impacts a person’s mental and physical well-being negatively.

Well, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe it to be.

Psychologist Kelly McGonical shows how to see stress as a positive in this (less than 15-minute) video. She provides simple yet effective mechanisms for stress reduction. See for yourself!

Turn stress into a positive condition and make it your friend! 😉
Special thanks to my girl Lini! 😘

Happy Thursday!

The Body Pledge!

Lord knows there were MANY times where I struggled with my body image. My legs are too thick. My arms are too wobbly. When did I get this little muffin top? What’s up with these stretch marks? Why do my legs “jello” when I walk? Arghh cellulite!…Yes I’m keeping it all the way real.

Well I’m slowly learning to love my body one body part at a time. As hard as that may be, I realize that God created me perfectly in His image and He loves me for me. So why don’t I feel the same way? Why are we our own worst critics?

Of course there is always room for improvement. Best practices are to maintain a healthy eating lifestyle and include exercise in your daily activities. This will definitely help achieve your best YOU! Just know that to see results, it takes time & dedication. Be patient with yourself and know you will get there.

You can start by taking this body pledge which can be a part of the healing process. If you’re ready, take the first step with me in saying the following:

Don’t let society establish what you should or should not look like. Be happy with who you are and start loving what you see in the mirror today, one body part at a time.

Talk Tuesday: Love Yourself Enough!

20140121-174703.jpg
Real Talk: This has been SOOO hard for me to do because:
1⃣ I love sweets food too much
2⃣ I’ve been slacking with my workout
3⃣ I’ve been lacking sleep lately and overworking myself
BUT I’m slowly learning to take care of myself… I am definitely a work in progress.

It’s all about maintaining a healthy lifestyle by eating clean, staying active, catching enough Zzz’s, taking care of yourself (enjoying some quality R&R) and renewing your mind, body and spirit. Your body will thank you in the long run. After all, your body is a temple.

5 – Try one of your favorite holiday drinks from Starbucks!
Do you prefer the Gingerbread Latte, the Caramel Brûlée Latte or the Peppermint Mocha?
I plan to start a new tradition and try a different one every year.


This year, I will try the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate (thanks to my colleague Meg for the tip). 👍
