Wednesday Wisdom ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

#upgradeyourlife

Little things can have a tremendous impact on a person. What little things have you done today for someone?

Think back over your life. Think about the people that had a positive influence on you. If your past was like mine, many of them didnโ€™t realize the impact they made. The influence was usually due to them caring about you and doing some little thing. What little things have been done for you that changed your life? What little things have you done for someone else that might have changed theirs?

๐Ÿ’ซI have been influenced by little things done by others.๐Ÿ’ซ

I had a boss that asked whether I had the guts to take a job he felt I could do. It was a job I wasnโ€™t even qualified to apply for. That question influenced me to set my career goals at a higher level and faster pace than they were at that time.

๐Ÿ’ซI have found that we can influence others by doing little things for them.๐Ÿ’ซ

You can influence others by providing help when it is needed. When I say provide help, I am not just talking about offering to help. Most people will not take you up on an offer even if they desperately need it. I remember taking food to a couple that was sick. This was not anyone I knew. It was a friend of someone that was my client. Two years later they saw me, thanked me and told me how much that meant to them. They even remembered my name after two years! ๐Ÿ˜ŠAnother way I have helped was to provide advice to countless women that now refer to me as their mentor. Also, to help families with grocery. Some of these families are friends of mines and thank me constantly for being there at the right time.

๐Ÿ’ซStart today doing little things for others.๐Ÿ’ซ

I can look back over my past and remember several moments in time that God used someone doing a little thing that encouraged me. I have also heard from others that have been influenced by me for doing the same. There are many kinds of little things you can do to encourage others. Some of these involve providing help when there is a need, saying thank you, and writing notes. What are you going to do today for someone that will make a difference in his or her life?

Glad I Donโ€™t Look Like What Iโ€™ve Been Through! ๐Ÿ’‹

Glad I donโ€™t look like:

๐Ÿ”…Depression/Anxiety

๐Ÿ”…Worrying over an Incarcerated child

๐Ÿ”…Fear/Doubt

๐Ÿ”…Suicide

๐Ÿ”…Chronic Pain

๐Ÿ”…Brokenness

๐Ÿ”…Procrastination

๐Ÿ”…Tiredness

๐Ÿ”…Sleepless Nights

Nope it hasnโ€™t been easy, and yes I have cried my pretty little eyelashes off! But I got up and decided one day that I no longer like the sad woman I saw in the mirror! And I finally needed to do something about it, so I got off my butt and NOW….

I love โค๏ธ the way I look, happy, confident, strong, and free!

Yesssss….free!

Free from caring about what people think of me, my illness, my sobriety, my businesses, my child, and my relationships, HELL MY LIFE!

We have to learn how to dance even when it’s raining, remember the tears we shed are watering our seeds of growth!

Don’t let 2019 keep you stuck the same way 2018 did!

Stop suffering alone and in silence!

As we come to the last Sunday of this year, decide what you want different in the new year!

Decide that you will get up, get dress, and show out!!!

You deserve to be happy and free!

Let’s #upgrade and go after everything God promised!

Are you ready!??????

Merry Xmas Eve ๐ŸŽ„

Good morning friends, happy Monday and Christmas Eve! ๐Ÿค—

Lord, sometimes the Advent season can be stressful, even difficult.

There are moments of awkwardness when someone gives you a gift and you have nothing for them, or vice versa.

There are moments of loneliness amid the bustle. The pains of fractured relationships seem especially sharp at this time of the year.

Please keep my eyes focused on you. Help me not get so invested in the idea of a โ€perfect holidayโ€ that I neglect my daily time in prayer.

Wishing all of you an amazing day, sending virtual hugs to those in need of one! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ

Remember to put your mental health first and continue to stay focused!

Merry Christmas,

Olivia ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ’‹

Happy Sunday bloggers, hope everyone is having a great morning so far.โ˜บ๏ธ

Just wanted to take the time to say Thank You for reading my blog. I’m not the best writer but I do enough to get my point across.

Thanks also for the gift of writing.

What a joy it is to express myself through words!

A letter, a diary entry, a blog, or a report…all these things are ways I can share my thoughts and knowledge with the world.

I am grateful for the chance to express myself and pray that God will guide my pen every time I write.

Gods Plans…not Yours

#Wednesdaywisdom

#youhavepurpose

Success is failure turned inside out,

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,

And you never can tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems afar,

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,

It’s when things go wrong

That you mustn’t quit.

Quitting Isnโ€™t an Option

Good morning friends,

How good it is to talk to God!

Formal prayer is important, but today I just want to pour out my heart and speak to God in my own words.

Thank you for the opportunity to talk to you as a friend.

Thank you for listening to my prayers and understanding my heart โค๏ธ

Remember you can talk to Him without judgement and shame.

Come as you are…..

Have an amazing day,

Olivia

Self-Care isnโ€™t Selfish…itโ€™s ok to Reward Yourself โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

Good Morning friends,

Today I am going to treat myself!

Thank you for the opportunity to do something special “just because.”

Thank you for giving me the chance to reward myself just for being me.

I am grateful for these little joys and for the ability to recognize that I am worthy of pampering.

My life is special, and today I am thankful for the chance to rejoice in myself.

Now, I haven’t decided what I’m going to do yet!

I just know whatever I do I deserve to do it, and will not be told I’m being selfish. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

What do you feel like doing but didn’t want to take the time to do?

Happy Tuesday Luvs,

Good morning friends, who among us is afraid of change or trying something new.

๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธI know I was but no more, I’m super excited about all my new experiences!!!

Lord, sometimes I get frustrated, especially when I have to face something new.

Thank you for giving me an open heart.

Help me accept change and rejoice in new experiences and new people.

Help me to be grateful for new opportunities and always see the good things even when I am afraid to try something new.

Don’t be afraid to embrace new things, there’s so much on the other side of fear!!!

Have an amazing day!!!!
