A Little Focus Anyone... Yeah, Me Either

This is a BIG one for me... The people closes to me know that I really don't like to speak negative confessions. Things like "it's hard" or "I can't". But on this focus thing, it is the hardest thing for me to do lately.

There is always so much going on... I am a full-time single parent, full-time employee, full-time business owner, full-time leader in my church, daughter, sister, friend, mentor, and so much more.... How do you focus through all of that?

Then we have all of this technology.. Smart phones, iPads, Laptops, Social Media, Reality television, and whatever else is out there. I mean really, how is anyone to focus with so much noise in the world? There is always a call, a text, or an email to attend to. I have a "to do list" for my "to do list". LOL!! I find myself having to set appointments and meetings in several different locations (Planner, Calendar, and Task Manager on my Smart Phone)...

By the end of the night I am wiped out.. I believe my eating habits have a lot to do with my lack of focus too. Like right now, I am soooo sleepy, and I think it was because of that Subway sandwich I ate a few hours ago that is still sitting on my belly. My belly is so full, and my shoulders hurt, and now I feel a little heartburn rising. Just great! Not to mention, that while I am sitting her doing this blog, I am in the middle of text messaging 4 of my friends, and I have laundry to do. Man, I need a personal assistant. Times like this I wish I was married.. No, because than that would just be another thing to add to my list of things to focus on.. Ugh!

So, what is the cure to this Focus issue? Does anyone have any suggestions? Omgosh! I just realized I left out being a full-time daughter to the King! I'm sorry Daddy, that should have been first on my list. You see, someone else would have just went back and added that to the top of this page. But I am going to keep it real! I am so busy, that I don't spend time with God as much as I would like, and as much as I know He would like me to.

Maybe, just maybe that is the answer to this Focus thing... Seek ye first, the Kingdom of God, and all these things will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33). I bet that is the missing link. I need to put Him above all the other things, and He will help me to focus on the things I need to focus on. And the Focus issue will no longer be an issue because I will be doing it in His strength, not my own! Praise God for that... Okay, I'm going to sleep now...  I'll take care of everything else tomorrow.

Be Good.. Live Life.. And Above all else... Be Unusual!

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…
