Daily BITUB- “Amazing Things”

You can never be held down unless you willingly allow others to dictate what you can and can't do. Your commitment to yourself is one of the strongest attributes you can have. Dedication to a goal and passion for a dream can lead to amazing things, but you have to want it! You can't wait for the right moment you have to believe that you are capable of creating that moment. You are the starting point! You know it won't be easy, but it sure will be worth it. You'll grow, you'll experience, you'll learn, you'll be better for it. You and the blessings God have provided have already set the foundation for your next beautiful journey. You just have to take it. If you are waiting and looking for a clear cut path... There isn't one. Honestly, why would you want that?  Adversity provides experience and experience provides strength. It helps you develop insight and in turn creates that path you seek step by step. A path that will pave the way for helping you become exactly who you are capable of being. A path where you will find that trusting in that leap of faith places you exactly where God intends for you to be in the exact moment you are supposed to be there. 

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is you find the strength within to take that leap of faith, and that you believe no matter where you land God is already there ready to catch you. 

Have a blessed day.

Daily BITUB- “Fear and Faith”

Fear sometimes clouds us. It causes us to base our worth on what we can or can't do. Problem is we don't allow ourselves the chance to see what we are capable of because that fear holds us back. Fear is powerful, but we mustn't forget just how much more powerful faith can be if we let it be. Faith calls us to imagine the possiblities of our talents, skills and unlimited and unconditional love and comfort that God provides. It helps bring clarity to the resources that are deep within us. It helps us realize who we are and who we can be. Think about your faith. Think about the times it lead you. Think about the times it was all you had and was all you needed. As you reflect look for the times you trusted in life. Think of the times you trusted in God. Look for the times it seemed like you couldn't go on, but yet here you are. There is good in everything, and there are lessons in all things. We make ourselves trust in life because of the ability and the need inside us to grow, develop and live. We can beat fear because this gift of life that God provides us needs to be lived. Your dreams need to be pursued! Let God in your life and let Him lead you through the dark. Let His light shine in you so bright that the shadows that fear creates simply have no place to exist.

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that those worries, the fears, the anxieties you are able to give to God. You are able to see there is a light and together with God you can and will shine bright. 

Have a blessed weekend.

Daily BITUB- “It Matters”

It all matters. It's important to have goals because it matters. We plan for them. We strategize. We document the benchmarks. We set toll gates. Sometimes though things don't go according to plan and that matters. Sometimes we get sidetracked or end up going in a direction we aren't quite sure how we did. It happens. It happens a lot. Truth is maybe you don't have a 5 year plan. Maybe you don't even know what tomorrow looks like because you are not sure how you even got here to this place. You are confused, exhausted, and frustrated and your plan is in shambles. Ok. So you know the problem. So what's the solution? There is always a solution and it matters. After all it's a new day. A new day filled with possibility, with hope, with faith. You made choices that got you here so you get to now make the choices to move you from here. You possess the ability to get yourself up and moving. You are blessed with the choice to know exactly what you want and need to do to make it happen. It's in you, it always has been. You prayed for strength, but you have to be willing to accept that strength comes with your desire to believe even when it seems impossible to believe. Your new plan is simple-FAITH! Faith in what God has in store for you! Faith in all the leaps you have taken up to this point and the leap you are going to have to take now. Faith in your ability to influence tomorrow by living today. Everyday will matter, in as much as you allow it to matter. This moment you are in, this place, the people in your life matter.
Trust in who you are, why you are, in the beauty of God's gift that is life... It matters. You wanting to live and dream matters. Maybe the goal you have today isn't the one you had yesterday. Maybe the plan has changed. Maybe your priorities have changed. Maybe you've realized that things won't always go as planned, but the blessing is God is always a part of whatever plan you have before you. So, no matter where you are going, what challenges lie ahead, what peaks, what valleys... God is already gone through them, and as He always has been, is with you... and realizing that matters. 

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you make your moments matter.

Have a blessed day!

Daily BITUB- “Busily Blessed”

There is no shortage of things to do. We are all busy these days. There are so many things on the to do list and often we dread having to start it. Reality is everyday we are bombarded with everything that is needing to be done NOW! That won't change any time soon, but what's your approach to it all? Do you tackle it with preconceived frustration? Trust me, that makes for a much longer day. The do to list of life is necessary, but controlling our perspective of it is the part we get to influence. We must control what busy means to us. Be intentional! Be busily blessed! Choose the things that matter to you and fill your day with that. Think about the positive of it all. Appreciating the long list of things at work means we have work. Picking up or cleaning house means we have a home. Dressing the kids, calling the family, cooking dinner, making a conference call, doing homework, bathing the kids...  All of it is perspective. While it won't always be easy to see the good when the day takes its toll go ahead and add a few more things to the to do list and it just might take on a different meaning. Maybe you add thank God, pray, have  faith, count your blessings, love and be loved. Maybe you remind yourself to be intentional in your interactions. That list may change from things we have to do to things we want to do, and become something we wake up eager to get started on. 

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is you find yourself busily blessed with those things that matter most to you and those around you.

Have a blessed day!

Daily BITUB- “It is what it is.”

How many times have you heard someone say "it is what it is"?  Thing is it doesn't have to be. Maybe this is your chance to create something and influence the possibility of what can be. Nothing has to be a certain way. Not if we trust in ourselves enough to change it. Not if we believe we can. Everyday someone makes the choice to innovate, to excel, to exceed, to push beyond a limitation. They make that choice in confidence and strive to be more than they were yesterday. We are all capable, but not all will do it. Not all are willing to leap and take that chance. It's those willing to grow through challenging themselves that see the opportunities in front of them with a desire to make a difference. Which one are you? Do you believe "it is what it is" or are you willing to make it  "it is what ever I choose it to be"? 

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is you find the moments to influence the outcome! 

Have a blessed week!

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!

Daily BITUB- “Small Victories”

Why wouldn't you celebrate the small things? Why would those things not matter? Yes, the big picture matters. The end goal matters. Those big victories matter. Yet we miss those small moments so often. We miss them so much we let doubt take over. We let fear control us. We miss the refresh, the encouragement, and the momentum they can create when we overlook the successes along the way. Those are the things that give us a leg to stand on. Those are the things that remind us why we are on the journey in the first place. Those are the reasons why, the reflections of what was, the possibilities of what can be, the beauty in seeing that if you want it you can have it. Those are the opportunities that remind us who we are, why we are, and what we can be. Those are the things that hold up our foundation, give us faith, provide hope. Those are the things that let us see, remember, realize God is ever present and in control. Remember our biggest blessings started somewhere, but they didn't start until we allowed ourselves to realize them! Chase the dream, raise the bar, give yourself something to go after, but don't forget to celebrate the victories and the blessings along the way.

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU, and my prayer for you today is that you find something to celebrate in you and in others.

Have a blessed week.

Daily BITUB- “In an Instant”

The creation of a special moment can begin in an instant. It can happen when you least expect it. It can floor you, lift you up, give you confidence. It's embedded in those moments that matter. It's when you first realize you can achieve what you once thought impossible. It happens when you realize you are a parent and what that really means. It happens when you are someone's best friend, confidant, supporter. It happens when you understand you are that shoulder to cry on and arms to be held by. It's when you first realize you love someone more than yourself and that feeling changes the entire course of your life. It's that spark of determination. It's crossing the finish line, climbing the mountain, beating the odds and creating new expectations for you and others. It's realizing that this moment you are in is filled with possibility and that the hope of becoming is embedded in the faith that you already are. It is realizing what it really means that God has given you His grace. It is in that instant you make the choice to Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU. 

My prayer for you today is that you are able to make your moments memories.

Have a blessed weekend!

Daily BITUB- “Busy”

Someone asked me the other day how I was doing. My response was, "I'm really busy." They immediately told me so were they. They went on to tell me how unproductive they felt. You know the days you feel like you never stopped, yet you got nothing done. We've all been there. Actually up until lately I've always been there. So, my busy, I told them, was a different type of busy. My days now are filled with things that were extremely important to me. Things I immediately moved to the top of the list because they were priorities and non negotiable parts of things that will make me better, allow me to serve others, that motivate me, inspire me, and simply put, fuel my passion. As my focus has moved towards those things, my "busy" has become more fulfilling. I find my days are very productive, my blessings are more evident than ever, and life is more about living than going through the motions. Yes, if you ask me how I'm doing today... I'm busily blessed, and grateful to be.

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer today is that you find your "busy".

Have a blessed day!

Daily BITUB- “Intentional Blessings”

Lately I've found myself being extremely intentional in my interactions with people. What I mean to say is I am doing all I can to be present with them when I'm talking, interacting, and listening. I'm listening to hear rather than to respond. Not always easy to do, but as I've allowed myself to be there and fully engaged in those conversations I learn a lot about myself and about others. How often do we miss those moments because we are already in the next thing on our to do list? We have so many blessed opportunities to influence and to be influenced if we let it happen. We have so many blessings all around us we just pass by. Take a moment to be in the moment! Take the time, or rather, take YOUR time to cherish your relationships, to appreciate your opportunities, to listen to others, to be in teachable moments, to be vulnerable, accessible, sincere, and purposeful in all you do. You may find that your life takes on a very different perspective and all those little things you are running past start to become big things you get to stand in and grow from.

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and have a blessed day!
