I just can't keep it to myself..

I'm feeling really good today, nothing special is going on but I feel like it on the inside! 

I'm putting together with a few friends a mini retreat for women.  It seems to all be falling into place which makes the excitement increase. I'm a huge believer in God giving you a vision and I feel that if He gives you the vision He gives you the necessary tools or people to make it come to fruition. Well, He indeed did that with this event. I am just so ecstatic that I have such great people in my life that were more than willing to jump on board and make this happen. We each offer something different and together can make a dynamite event happen. 

If you are interested and or want more information, don't hesitate to inquire. I'll give you a brief description of what will take place.  Picture Me, Elevating is what its called. There will be 5 workshops over a weekend that women can participate in that include Fitness, Fashion, Finance, Face/Faith & Lifestyle.  In each of the workshops the attendants will get a ton of information that they can then apply and begin to elevate themselves. I am praying that its life changing not only for the attendants but myself as well. 

I spend hours researching information, participating in webinars, reading, etc. While many obtain information and keep it to themselves I want to share with the world. I want all of us ladies to be better, to do better. Why keep it to yourself? who is that helping. Weren't we all put here for service? I believe we were. I have grown so much in the last few years and I want those around me to as well. If I can help a friend, family member or even a stranger then I have done something, right?  Life events were happening all around me, friendships dissolving, losing loved ones, bad relationship and so much more. I've been a believer for most of my life but sometimes we get so caught up that we forget and He has a way of shaking things up so you have no choice but to bend on your knees and call on Him.  Some, blame God for hard times but I chose to answer and get myself together spiritually. 

I believe that that's the first step (getting yourself together spiritually). How else can anything else fall into place without that major piece? It can't. So, after spending time reconnecting and getting my spirituality in check things began to shift for me. While there were still issues I dealt with I felt better and had more clarity with certain things. I have lost about 20 people in the last 7 years that were important in my life. To name a few key ones were my grandfather, an ex boyfriend, my great grandma, an uncle, my grandmother, a play father and the major one my father.  There were many others throughout the last 7 years and I know had I not gotten myself "together" I would not have been able to handle this. Thank God He knocked me down and more importantly He gave me strength! 

I could go on and on about the process but I won't for times sake. I am just thankful that I did reconnect, started working on other areas of my life and now I just want to help everyone. I am no saint, nor am I an expert but the last seven-eight years have taught me a lot and I just can't keep it to myself. So, I've put together this opportunity for others to invest in themselves and get the fire lit so that they too can elevate.  The world is groaning, God is speaking and its time for us to make some things happen. Our youth need us and we need to be prepared to assist them and keep them on the right track but we can't do it if we ourselves are not "together"

Thanks for reading my randomness and I hope that maybe it sparked something in you to do some self reflecting and make something happen!

Over and out
