Starting from the Beginning

"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might." Ecclesiastes 9:10

Joyce Meyers says in order to develop your potential...you have to start from the beginning. You cannot start at the finish line. You can't wait until things are perfect...but you must do. something. NOW!!! Just lay your hand to whatever is in that is front of you. Just move forward. One step at a time. I need to practice that myself.

Just. Move. Forward.

Doesn't it sound so much easier than it is to do?

It is such a process. And if you are anything like me, you need to have quiet in order to figure out where to go. To mediate, to seek God's face, to really know where you are heading...don't you need quiet? I have goals and lists and plans and projects...but can't figure out how to start...how to move forward. I am encouraging myself but I just need to start from the beginning. Where is the beginning?

Trying to Figure It All Out

Yet i am not figuring out anything. I need to write, I want to write...

I started this blog months ago with that one simple sentence. How do we figure out how to accomplish all we want to do with all that we need to do. It seems daily my list of things to accomplish from day to day only grows longer...with no relief or help in sight. However, as a God fearing and knowing woman...my soul says that isn't true...so where does my first step begin. How do I became a fantastic woman of God, that is an amazing woman and thoughtful giving person. That is a model employee, avid scholar, aspiring law student and painter, writer and fun?! That seems like a lot to be aspiring to be...however, I know...that in my heart of hearts it is possible and i will be fabulous...once i arrive there...but how do i start? Does it start with a new better paying job so that my mind isn't always focused on living with just my children again? Does it start with a new place regardless of what i am making and i just lean on God to help me work it out? How do i find the time, space and peace in my current living situation to do the creative, fun, wonky things that I like to do without fear of criticism and judgement. It is enough to make someone crazy. Literally and figuratively. But for now i will continue persevering knowing that i am getting close. i can almost feel the life i am meant to be living. i am going to continue to make steps forward and continue my faith and belief that my breakthrough is around the corner. I know it...in my heart and soul i know it.

Until next time.

Failing

So that quickly I am already failing at my goal of writing every day. I didn't write yesterday...but I am going to do more today. I am in a different type of place right now...I am sure I touched on it the other day that I am unhappy. I was so unhappy, I quit my job and was staying with family. However, I learned quickly and with a lot of sadness in my heart that you can't always depend on family to do what is right. So again, I was left to make the decision to get out of a toxic environment. Basically, they just wanted to loaf off of me...no jobs and no income other than what I brought to the table. I am still working through a lot...for example, how I tend to journal more than blog...I need to evaulate what the difference is. Read other's stuff and figure out for me what makes a good blog...basically do my research. And then decide what do I have to offer that maybe the next great blogger doesn't. I want to make the life that I want...and I am just stuck! So for my prayer warriors out there...say a little pray for me. For those that don't get down like that...send me some good mojo and well wishes. I am in a rocky place but like a good friend told me the other day...coal becomes a diamond by withstanding the pressure...so all the pressure that I am under can only lead me to beautiful and great things!!

Until next time!!!

WOW

So I have been gone for a while and things on here are totally different. I am going to have to learn to blog all over again. Things in my life are upside down! But I am pressing through to make things better and to get them back on track. One of my daily goals now is to write everyday...SOMETHING...anything...just write. Get it out there. I'm desperately trying to figure out how to make my life exactly what I want it to be...and I don't know how. But, the important thing is I am trying. I have quit my job, I am technically homeless (not really but I don't enjoy living with folks) while I am trying to figure it all out!!! Thank God, that my children are awesome and adaptable and amazing...I am overall blessed and I can't complain. It will all be ok. So for those of you who keep checking on me...thank you. I am back and will keep coming back...check me out on twitter...danibelle_1920

Thanks!!!

Random Inspiration

A sultry voice with dulcet tones
Caramel skin engulf soft...roaming hands
Eyes can easily be lost on what is to be offered on the surface
                     BUT
Golden heart with a sound mind
Creative eyes, passionate fingers
Fire ignites on the topic of mama, daddy, nephew~~family
Sparks of light resonate all around
 a beautiful aura that causes intrigue.

scratches from my psyche

Fairy tales~wispy clouds, blue skies~gentle breezes
But tell me the good of it all without steadfast feet, strong heart, foundations of concrete beliefs
Butterflies and tingly toes, easy smiles with flutterings of a rose
All can be find but fade away
When storm clouds roll, rain falls, cold embraces
then what do you have?

Inspirations of love to last but with tall walls, big stones, strong doubts...
what do you have, where do you go, how do you begin?

Thanks for being patient guys and I will take any advice on how to find this balance!
