Ya’ll ready for church? Because I am about to spit some serious wisdom. It is a key principal that took an at-risk youth, who grew up on welfare

… to her dream of working as a journalist in the biggest market in this country: New York City.

That same girl, then made a series of bad mistakes – from aligning myself with the wrong people to people pleasing. It cost me everything… AND I MEAN EVERYTHING. But it is never too late to rebuild!  Mistakes can either grieve you for the rest of your life – or you can OWN IT and empower yourself to know what NOT TO DO AGAIN.

I chose empowerment… and reminded myself of how I achieved my dreams in the first place:  VISION.

**********************************************************

Habakkuk 2:2-3 explains it best!

“And the Lord answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry”.

**********************************************************

For 7 whole years… I was in a rut. I rehearsed over and over in my head all the bad things that had happened. But what was I meditating on regarding my future? Nothing but fear… until I finally created my vision board. You know like the one below ⤵⤵⤵

Your vision board is your opportunity to BE BOLD. BE BRAVE. AND THINK BIG. Your job isn’t to figure out HOW IT’S GONNA HAPPEN… your job is to believe God is able.

You fill in the blanks!

Will God help you accomplish every goal?  Not always… but when He doesn’t, He usually sends you on a path to see why you don’t want it. Trust me everything that glitters ain’t gold.

So what are your natural gifts and talents?  What have you given up on… or never started due to lack of money, no connections, closed doors, fear, lack of ability, etc?

Go through magazines like my #FitFriends did! (we made a party out of it) If you don’t have magazines – go to google images and print every photo that exemplifies YOUR DREAM GOD GAVE YOU. No one has to believe it BUT YOU!!  Then  paste it on the chart 🔼🔼🔼 above and find a scripture that agree’s with every image… and declare God’s word over your vision  board everyday!

I even make my kids do it!

Then find yourself an accountability partner… like my 5 foot 2 mentor Jessica. 😇

Short in stature but GIGANTIC on goal digging!

Once a week, Jessica and I share ideas… then build 3 strategic ways to make the first steps happen.

**************************************************************************************************

Proverbs 16:9 “We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps”.

**************************************************************************************************

She was the first one who boldly told me, “GET OVER YOURSELF AND MOVE ON”. So I did… and went back to the basics and created a new vision board. It was time to create a new path… since the ones I’ve been on – wasn’t exactly throwing out the red carpet. #LOL

One of those paths lead me to my daughter’s school. Goal:  help this teacher ↘↘ change her perception of self.

Miss Stephanie doesn’t like the lines on her eyes and face

Miss. Stephanie thought she needed botox. We proved she could be wrinkle free in less than 90 seconds without injections?  WOW! Fine lines gone! Eyes and forehead!

So is this my vision of hosting the TODAY show. No. But it might be my path to getting there. Showing products that actually work. If not… it might still fund my kids education. And that quite frankly is a vision worth having.

Oh yeah… and being wrinkle free 😜

Ya’ll better get some vision…. and some WOW too!
