WHO YOU ARE: A Message To All Women [Video]

Happy FriYAY!

All week, I have stumbled upon blessing after blessing. It’s like God’s little winks letting us know we are on the right track. I just love how He does that! I call it living in “flow”.  This morning someone sent me this AHHHHH-mazing video and of course, I had to share it with all of you. As a confidence builder, affirmation addict (hence, #Tiffirmations) and advocate for empowering women to live their most authentic life– this video gave me chills, brought tears to my eyes and fueled me up for the day ahead. Please do yourself a favor and watch it, but not only watch it allow the message to sink down into your spirit.

AUDIENCE OF ONE: Who Are You Trying To Impress?

audience-of-one

Happy Sunday!

I’m just going to ramble for a minute. This has been on my heart this past week and I thought you ladies would be encouraged by it too.

Last week, a cool guy friend of ours – Jeff Peters – made a simple yet profound statement to me while Aaron was playing at a gig. The place was packed and everyone was engaged in my hubby’s performance. That’s what every entertainer wants, right? I was explaining how happy I was that the place was filled with loyal fans then my friend said something to the effect of, “Yes, that’s great, but we should all be more concerned with the audience of one” then he pointed his finger to the sky. God was who he was talking about.

WHOA!!!!!!!!  The place went silent and this hit me like a ton of bricks for a few seconds.

Don’t you love it when people around you are truly iron sharpening iron?!? (Thanks Jeff!!) This resonated with me all week.  We live in a world where so many people are trying to warp the perception about themselves on social media and make us all believe they are something they are not.  They are more concerned with how many followers they have and…so….

Are you more concerned with impressing people than you are about impressing God?

The silly thing is God knows who you are so it’s a slap in His face when you are being the fake, inauthentic version of yourself to the world. He created you to be exactly who you are with all your gifts, shortcomings, talents and flaws. He must shake His head when He sees someone put out a fake representation of themselves. I want to make Him proud. Don’t you?

As an influencer, I pray daily for God to enlarge my territory (Prayer of Jabez) which means, yes– grow my social media, but there is a mission and purpose behind it. Are you more concerned with feeling “popular” or are you more focused on the amount of people you could add value to? Again, God knows your heart!

Summer is behind us and as we head into Fall, take a look back at your 2016 goals. Have you hit them or missed the mark a few times? You still have time to create the best year yet!

 

I encourage you all to set your intentions toward impressing God more.

Please give me you 2-cents on this topic! 

The world wants and needs the authentic YOU! 

 

Love, Light, Ladyballs + Lipstick,

Tiff

 

HAPPY IS ON THE HORIZON: My 2016 Prayer For You

Sunset_horizon

Photo taken by me in Santa Monica. One of the highlights of 2015- going back to California for the first time since our move.

Sista, my prayer for you:

May every single day of 2016  be filled with the wonder of God’s special love for you.

I pray for your happiness, but also for a greater sense of fulfillment in your career and purpose, an ease of communication with those you love, and a sense of satisfaction in all that you have accomplished. Above all, may you rest secure in the knowing of God’s presence. Regardless of how lonely you feel or how difficult a situation- you are never alone. 

I pray for you to be happy and expectant about what is on the horizon in 2016.

I pray for smiles and love.

I pray for friends that are true and authentic.

I pray for kindness and compassion.

I pray for unexpected moments of joy and laughter.

I pray for you to be at peace. 

I pray you walk taller and shine brighter in the new year. I pray you shake off any self-defeating thoughts and truly own your beauty.  I pray you are healthy and whole- body, mind and spirit. I pray you stay spiritually centered.

Sista, I am grateful you are on this journey with me and I picked up my favorite scented candle by Voluspa in honor of this final blog post of 2015. I lit it and wrote this prayer for you tonight.

May God keep you in touch with all that you are and all that you are meant to become. May you have the strength and discernment to remove any toxic person who does not celebrate and encourage the woman you are becoming. Keep believing. Keep moving forward. In His mighty name, Amen.

What are your goals and plans for 2016?

Share + Comment.

Love, 

Tiff

 

 

God’s Love Is The Electricity

MarianneW

For the past 15+ years, I have soaked up the wisdom and spiritual insight of Marianne Williamson.  The first book I read of hers was A Return To Love: Reflections of a Course in Miracles  and it forever altered my life. It was pivotal in helping me get on the path back to God. I’ve made reference to it many times here on SOS and if you still have not read it I encourage you to buy yourself a copy today!

Yesterday, I stumbled across the above video from the Super Soul Sessions and had to share it with you. Even after all her years of teaching, Marianne still gives aha, eye-opening insight on spiritual healing and growth. I’ve been dealing with challenging relationships lately and love how God leads you to the exact message you need.

I realize the holiday season is crazy and you may not have much free time, but please take a moment to watch if you crave some soul food. I guarantee it will fill you up!

 

Love,

Tiff

 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! My Gratitude List A to Z

 

dallas-skyline-lodozo.com

Who is excited for Thanksgiving week? ME! We get a short work week, quality time with those we love, yummy food, naps without guilt and time to focus on what we are truly grateful for. I’m looking forward to sitting on my mom’s couch, turning off my brain and catching up on magazines together. Have I mentioned how much I love being in Texas and able to jaunt down to Houston to see my folks? This Thanksgiving Day marks our 2 year anniversary living in Dallas.

Time has flown.

So much has happened.

Amazing doors have opened. 

My heart is full.

I have to say, this is one of the greatest gifts I am grateful for this week. Like any big move, we’ve had our share of wonky moments- but Dallas has become home and we are grateful for the beautiful souls in the city who have embraced us with open arms. It proves stepping out into the unknown is always rewarding.

Thanksgiving week is the perfect lead in to the holiday season and end of the year. What’s better than ending the year full of gratitude?!? This mindset and practice will set you up for success in the new year. Hello 2016!

gratitude-definition

Does expressing gratitude come easy to you or do you find it difficult to focus on your blessings in the midst of your burdens?  Practicing gratitude has become a daily part of my life, but it wasn’t always that way. I was a chronic complainer and my life was a reflection of it. I was a mess, my life was a mess and my thoughts were a mess. It all starts with your thoughts so if you need a little help getting started on living a life of gratitude and changing the way you think- keep it simple with an A to Z list. We all have so much to be grateful for and the more you focus on those things,  you’ll unlock an abundance of blessings to flow to you and chase you down.

Join me in creating a fun list. I am grateful for:

A- Accessories. They are my obsession and add an exclamation point to any outfit.

B- Bible. My favorite ‘self help’ book! Joyce Meyer has a great amplified version:

JM_bible

C- Coats. They keep us warm on chilly days like today. (If you live in DFW, please drop off your gently worn coats to the Campbell Agency on Oak Lawn & Blackburn for their coat drive)

D- Dogs. My little Zoe has been the best companionship. She’s also been in a pain in the butt, but I love her. She’s a bundle of love.

E- Encouragement. Just this morning I received the most heartfelt email from my Spiritual mentor. Not sure what I would do without her encouragement! #GodSend

F- Faith. Without it, we remain in a hopeless state. Being filled with Faith gives you strength to face each day.

G- God. Without Him, I would be a drug addict, dead, depressed and totally defeated.

H- _________________( fill in the blank)

I- Independence. At times I can be too independent, but I’m so grateful my parents raised me to be an independent woman. It’s important to know you can rely on yourself!

J- _________________(fill in the blank)

K- Kale. It makes my morning smoothie super yummy and packed with antioxidants.

L- Love. My life is overflowing with it. #Blessed

M- ________________ (fill in the blank)

N- Naps. I love them and will take them any time I can!

O- “Oceans”. My all time favorite song by Hillsong.

P- Patience. I’m always running low on it, but getting better with age. Being patient takes away so much stress!

Q- Quinoa. It’s healthy, yummy and a great rice replacement.

R- _________________(fill in the blank)

S- Sisterhood. The women in my life who love me just as I am, call me out on my s@&*, help me shine brighter and pray for me when I’m weak are the sisters God let me choose. Also, this SOS Sistahood has changed my life!

T- Truth. Authenticity and honesty in people are the most attractive attributes to me. I’m always so grateful for people who keep it real!

U- Underwire Bras. Go ahead and LOL… gravity is taking over and they help the “girls” stay cute and perky! Here’s my favorite daily bra by DKNY:

V- ________________(fill in the blank)

W- Walks. My natural anti-depressant. I started taking long power walks around 12 or 13 when I was approaching my treacherous teen years. Helps keep me sane and organize my crazy creative thoughts.

X- ________________(good luck with that one..fill in the blank)

Y- Yellow. One of my favorite colors. Brightens even the most dreary day.

Z- Zzzz’s. Did I mention I love to sleep? I’m so grateful when I can catch up on sleep on the weekend.

___________________________________

You’re probably thinking,

“Only on Tiff’s blog can you talk Bibles AND Bras !!” 

Hey, I keep it real. They are 2 things we can’t live without.

Please share your ideas and what you filled in the blanks with! 

Wishing you all a very blessed Thanksgiving week.

I am grateful for YOU!

Love,

Tiff
