Don't Allow Debt to Become A Generational Curse!

Proverbs 22:6 (The Message Bible) "Point your kids in the right direction - when they're old they won't be lost."

Getting free from debt is not just for us; it's also for our children, and our children's children. Debt can be a generational curse!

When parents are in debt, it usually trickles down to the children. Our children more times than none emulate what the grown ups around them do. If we don't want our children in financial bondage tomorrow, we have to do all that we can do to get out of it TODAY!!

It is our responsibility as parents to teach our children how to handle their money. The best training for our children is for them to develop and implement good money management skills early in life. If we are going to point our kids in the right direction as it relates to money, we must first learn how to apply those directions in our own lives. As parents, we must realize that our attitudes and ways of spending money greatly influences our children.

When I was younger no one taught me how to handle money, so when I became an adult I didn't have a CLUE!! And I can't blame it on anyone, because I'm sure my parents didn't have a clue, and their parents probably didn't have a clue either. So you see how this can become a generational thing?? Let's be the generation that breaks the curse!!

I have faith in you!! I know you can do this!! We'll do it together!!

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Why Do We Settle for Less...

"I live in quiet desperation every day of my life. Wishing that I could be rescued from this misery I call life. If feels like no one understands me. Not my family, not my friends, not anyone.

I feel like I am trapped in my life, and I can't break free. I have dreams and aspirations, and they all feel like they are ten thousand miles away. I just don't know what to do. I'm currently in a relationship that is far beneath what I deserve, but yet I can't live without him. And it doesn't really matter, because if it wasn't him, it would be someone else.

It's been that way my entire life. Giving all of myself to a man, and getting nothing in return. Giving my body, giving my time, and anything else that is asked of me. At the end of the relationship, when all of my sacrifice has gone unappreciated, I am left with another injury to my soul.

Same story... Different man... Who's Next!?! Who can draw me even further aw…

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…
