Enough Pie For Everyone

 

 

Hiya Girlfriend!

 

Yesterday, I posted the above quote on my Instagram and Facebook and WHOA- it struck a chord with many so I thought you ladies should hear it too.

That’s all.

Carry on.

Be blessed.

Go do you boo.

Stay in your lane.

There is enough pie for everyone. (and then some!)

DO YOU BOO. WITHOUT APOLOGY.

Hello Gorgeous!

Sharing my post from Instagram here on the blog because many of you may need this message and are not on IG. Please comment and share your thoughts: 

 

I loooove face time (for real, not the iPhone application) and have never been a phone person… my inner tribe knows this. I prefer connecting eye-to-eye and actually experiencing someone’s vibe. It may sound old school because we live in a phone, Skype and texting society. So, call me old school.

Back in the day, I felt bad about it, beat myself up for it and tried to conform. See, I have ADD. I know everyone flings that term around today, but I was finally diagnosed at the age of 37 after years of not understanding how to manage it, self-medicating, battling depression and perfection paralysis due to it. If this is you, read on:

*I’m an artistic, creative type.

*Can’t talk in the car because I would always get lost and miss my exit.

*I prefer 1×1 interaction with deep conversation rather than in groups with lots of small talk.

*My phone stays on silent most of the day when I’m working with clients, filming/writing SOS because one text can distract me and send me down the rabbit hole then I’ve lost an hour of my day I can’t get back.

*Overstimulation and groups can make me shut down or I would find I needed to drink more to cope in social settings.

*I love people and love putting on workshops, but I know I will need a quiet day afterward to recoup.

 

I could go on and on!

I share this because I’m sure MANY of you are just like me.

Stop the madness!

 

*I make lots of lists and give myself grace if I don’t mark everything off.

*Keep margin on your plate instead of saying yes to every single opportunity and event.

*The power of a gracious no.

MOST IMPORTANT: Pray for discernment and the leading of the Holy Spirit for the best yes’s. There is a powerful book on the topic by Lisa TerKeurst called The Best Yes.

 

 

Saying YES to God’s best means saying no to the things that distract us from what’s best for us. Make sense? People may get upset with you because it may not fit into their agenda, but that’s their prob, not yours.

As always, I’m reminding you to… DO YOU BOO!
WITHOUT APOLOGY.

 

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!
