Daily BITUB- “Paint It”

You want to paint that moment that changed everything. You are thinking of what that moment should be, but too many come to mind. Throughout our lives many things help shape us. While there are big moments that may change our course there often isn't one thing we do that completely defines us. There are so many pieces to the puzzle that make up that big picture. Each instance, each experience, every moment is a part of what makes us who we are. The failures we experience don't characterize us. They are simply a part of the building blocks that allow us to build upon our foundation to reach new heights. The negative people we encounter shouldn't dictate how our day should be. They simply are a test to determine our ability to be the positive even when others say we shouldn't be. Our environment doesn't create our world. It is simply where we are, but does not determine where we are capable of going. There are so many things that can encourage us, derail us, bring us joy, give us pain... Nothing is as influential in our lives as our attitude and how we perceive things. Though all of it matters each experience is a piece of the whole. God already knows what the image we are painting is. It's up to us to get there. It's up to us to keep painting through the adversity, setbacks, mountains, and valleys. Take all of it and put it together and the end result is God's beautiful masterpiece where we ultimately are the only ones to determine which image we will paint and exactly how and why we will paint it.

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU, and my prayer for you today is that whatever canvas you are staring at today that you take a moment to appreciate the beauty that God has painted in you. 

Have a blessed weekend.

Daily BITUB- “Influence”

Someone took a moment yesterday to ask me how my day was. Someone else asked me how they could help me. Someone else told me that they appreciated my outlook of life and how I tackle adversity. All of that took a small moment of time, but it mattered. Your influence isn't always easily visible. A word, gesture, smile, frown, a voice inflection. Even silence can change the path you are on and the people crossing your path at that moment. It isn't realistic to think you will always be positive, but it is awareness that you will influence others that makes a difference. Children, friends, work, family... Your influence ripples throughout their lives and while they encounter negativity it is your ability to positively influence the outcome that can be the balance in their life. People look up to us in different ways, just as we look up to others. While it isn't our responsibility to be a role model, it is a privledge to be the example of faith more often than not. Enjoy life and share your influence. Be the positive. Be your blessings and always Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU.

My prayer for you today is you get an opportunity to influence and be influenced. 

Have a blessed day!

Daily BITUB- “Feelings”

Often times we hesitate in sharing our feelings. It's hard. We may be scared. We may wonder what others will think of us. We may pause or question ourselves only to find that pride or selfishness takes over and the moment passes us by. Sometimes we make the choice to hold back our emotions, thoughts and feelings because it's easier than dealing with the inevitable aftermath that comes. That's not what being true to ourselves and those we love is all about. We will miss opportunities that God presents us with if we continue on that path. Our ability to be real with ourselves and others is what influences others to do the same. It's what creates unbreakable bonds where we grow, learn, become stronger, create memories, make moments and build foundations in relationships that will last a lifetime. It's where true friendships are created. It's where we can be ourselves, vulnerable and open. Where all we are is exposed and the unconditional love built in honesty and trust is ever present. It's where we feel safe to share our fears, loves, emotions. It creates those unforgettable interactions that matter. It's where we can share our faith in God and one another. It's where we find that the ones we love most are always ready to listen and to share. It's where God let's us know it's ok and we allow ourselves to believe it really is. 

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is you are able to find a moment to share with someone special.

Have a blessed day!

Daily BITUB- “Faith”

Is faith a guiding light? Do you just talk about it or do you lean on it? Do you lend it when others lack it? Do you pray for it when all seems lost? I remember in 8th grade I was so confused about my faith. I didn't get it. I couldn't touch it, couldn't feel it, couldn't see it so it didn't make sense to have it. I sat with teachers, talked with my priest, read... It didn't matter. Funny though despite my confusion, my doubt, my fears God never moved away from me. He stood right next to me waiting for me to realize Him. He comforted me even when I didn't know it. He answered my unspoken prayers, guided me, held me up, pushed me forward, and supported me. He helped me maneuver challenges and fight for the things that mattered. He visited me in my darkest moments and showed me the light when I couldn't see it. He blessed me in the times I didn't deserve it and reminded me often of how blessed I was. He has humbled me, helped me grow, loved me unconditionally, and listened even when I didn't say a word. He's been my beacon. He was there when I wasn't and  today more than ever I get that faith isn't something we just have sometimes...  It is something, together with God, we live in all the time.


Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU, and my prayer for you today is that you find that faith is ever present in your life.

Have a blessed day!

Daily BITUB- “”Be Better”

There is no shortage of opportunities to be better. There are so many instances where you can treat others right, offer a helping hand, listen to someone who needs to talk. There are moments where we are asked to do big things, and subtle moments where we are asked to just be there. There are moments of quiet, moments of laughter, happy times, sad times, and even those times we have no idea what we feel,  just that we do. All of it is a blessing. There are no accidents when you believe that God has a plan for us all. Yes, we are still responsible for the decisions we make, the attitude we carry day after day, and how we perceive things, but faith tells us God is already aware of where we are headed and is waiting for us to get there. There are no shortcuts to creating the life we want to live, to being the person we want to be, to making our dreams reality, and that too is a blessing. By taking the long way around we build character, we grow, we experience, we interact and we all end up better for that. 

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU, and my prayer for you today is you are able to find the beauty in being there for others and having a servant heart.

Have a blessed week!

Daily BITUB- “Challenges”

Every day we face new challenges. We experience people and places we are not familiar with. We are called upon to take risks, set expectations, pave the way. We are asked to step up, to shout from the rooftops, to fight! Thing is we don't have to. It's our choice how and if we accept it. Some will do it, others will fear the unknown, others will ignore it completely. Which are you? Fear is a powerful feeling, but if you truly trust in it, there is nothing stronger than faith! We talk about it, but do we live it? Your ability to stay the course is inspiration. You determination is motivation. You matter. It's you giving hope to those whose fear holds them back. It's you living life so that your example empowers them to live theirs. The challenges are many, but who you are begins with the choice to have conviction in who you know you are destined to be. Everyday we face new challenges, but everyday it's those challenges that give us the opportunity to be more than we ever thought we could be. 

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is you leap in faith for whatever it is that is holding you back.

Have a blessed day!

Daily BITUB- “The Reins”

Take the reins of life and once you get them don't let them go! Remember allow your heart to set the path, your mind to be the guide and your spirit to be your companion.  Let your hope give you the endurance to continue on through the adversity of life! Let your faith give you strength to fight when no one will! Let God carry you when you need it and open yourself up to the true power of what trusting in Him really can do! You want a better life? You want to live your dreams?  You want to be motivated? Then dedicate yourself to a better you and commit yourself to the foundation of blessings you have from family, friends and God! It's not enough to write it, not enough to say it... I know I've been there. It doesn't work unless you LIVE it. You have to be strong enough to make the changes necessary to create the life you know you should be living. Don't be complacent. Don't let the challenges of life deter you. Believe in you, in the journey, in God's plan... Take the reins and let's go! 

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that what ever challenges you are facing you are able to give them to God and find peace.

Have a blessed day!
