Daily BITUB- “Understanding”

We are often presented with situations we can't fully understand. That doesn't mean we failed. It doesn't mean that we are wrong. It doesn't mean we aren't smart enough to get it. You have to be honest with the fact that maybe you don't want to get it. It can be many things. It can mean that maybe our heart isn't in it. It could mean we don't feel like it is priority for us. Maybe it's not something that moves you, fills your heart, drives you. Often we find things we aren't invested in are simply things that we aren't passionate about. You can't fake it. You can't force yourself to love something, because the minute it gets hard you will realize you don't. You hear so often that if it matters you will find a way. You will rise to the occasion and you will push through whatever is holding you back. Think about how many times you did just that. Think of those moments and how you felt. How you were determined and focused on finishing what you started. How you were excited to see what came next and could care less what was in the way. You weren't going to let anything stop you. It's those things you don't need to fully understand. Deep down you know it matters, and you trust that you will be able, and willing, to figure it out as you go. 

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you allow yourself to focus on the things that move you. The things that bring you joy, passion, and matter. You know what they are. You just need to let yourself realize it.

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy week everyone.

Daily BITUB- “You Can Face It”

"Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which, in prosperous circumstances, would have lain dormant."-Horace

What will you face today? What will others? What needs to be said? What needs to be done? The more I study, observe, and experience the more I realize that everyone needs to be heard. Everyone deserves to have acceptance, guidance, encouragement, and praise. Nobody knows what someone's path to this point looked like. You don't know what it will be after they have crossed yours. I have a story. You have a story. You have your good days and your bad days, and through it all your gifts are always there. You have things deep down inside you that maybe you forgot were there. You have a level maybe you have yet to reach. You have people you live with and those you live for. It is in our challenges we are better. It is in our values our character is defined. Your heart holds the pathway to your strength. Your spirit is the foundation to your perseverance. Your mind is filled with experiences, moments, memories that have given you blessings that you have yet to realize and those you lean on daily. You will face things today you are more equipped to handle than you know. We are blessed to be on this journey, and even more blessed that we can take the long way around.

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you know whatever you must face you can. May you remember that you have already made it through every bit of adversity you have faced up till now. 

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy weekend everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Let Us Not Forget”

Yesterday I encountered a situation where I was a participant in a meeting where someone was being so negative. Every solution was met with a problem. Every obstacle was met with an excuse. There was a lot of no, can't, and won't. It is so easy to be discouraging. To tell someone they can't takes no energy. To hold someone back, to step on others to move up, to utter words filled with hate... It's easy. Thing is, so is being kind. So is supporting one another. So is pushing others to chase those wild dreams. So is being the positive in a negative situation. All it takes is a choice. You think your influence doesn't matter, but it does. Someone is listening to you. Someone hangs on your every word and waits to see what you will do in the moment. We sometimes take for granted those times were we can lift others up. Where we can help someone hold it together while they go through a tough time. Where we can lend our faith to others. Pay attention to what's going on around you. Who are you surrounding yourself with? What are you doing to be a light in the dark? What are you doing to spread kindness and serve others? We all can, and every chance we get, we should. Take that blessing and be it. "Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, but let us encourage one another." (Hebrews 10: 24-25)

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you take your influence and use it to be positive. Use it be a beacon of hope and a light in the dark.

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy day everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Pride and Opportunity”

"By pride comes nothing but strife. But with the well advised is wisdom" (Proverbs 13:10) 

I would get this nervous feeling in my gut every time I felt like I couldn't meet someone's expectations. I used to have this sense of disappointment coupled with a flight mentality. I thought it easier to walk away then to at least try. That sense of hopelessness can be overwhelming. You don't know what to do so you do nothing. You are essentially throwing in the towel on a fight you haven't even started. It took years of trials, fighting low self esteem, trust issues, blaming of others, and intentional refocusing of that negative energy to realize we all fall short sometimes. That falling short wasn't near as bad as a failure to even begin. Yet, as I dug deeper I realized it wasn't a fear of failure at all. It was all the good that scared me the most. Now I had things to live up to and pride wouldn't allow me to take on anything that I didn't feel I would "win".  I didn't appreciate the moments to grow, and I was completely missing the point of living. Missing the value of a lesson, the joy in the pain, and the comfort of knowing I could do better next time... If I just allowed a first time. I still get that nervous feeling, but it's more a feeling that reminds me that it matters and it's important to me. That starting simply allows me the opportunity to finish. 

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you don't allow your fear to hold you back. That you hold on to experience and have the courage to leap at life in faith.

Have a blessed, healthy, and safe day everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Twists and Turns”

Life will take us on twists and turns. It will flip us upside down and then stand us right back up. It leads us in directions we sometimes are compelled to question. We must know, and sometimes it takes years to understand why we ended up where we did. The problem is we can't always wait for those answers. Regardless of where it has led us it is where we choose to go next that will matter. What you will come to find is experience changes perspective. What you once thought a dead end becomes a climbable wall. What you once thought was finally your path to happiness can change in an instant. What you once thought impossible becomes the unbelievable opportunity you had been waiting for. Then along those enlightened paths we also find those people we once felt we could not travel without. We come to understand they were only part of the journey not the journey. They gave us their love, support and comfort, and we did in return. God places people and moments in our path so that we may grow. We learn and we teach, but not everything can take the entire journey with us. It's ok. You are not leaving anything behind. You are simply taking with you what you need to move forward and to carry on. So cherish the opportunities to cross as many paths, to face adversity, to be challenged. It's in those twists and turns of life you will be amazed that you find yourself exactly where you need to be exactly when you need to be there. 

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer today is for comfort in whatever walk of life you are in. That you know the destination will be worth it and God will walk with you every step of the way. 

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy day everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Pause and Breathe”

You ever felt like you just were off. You couldn't put your finger on it. You thought about your day, what was happening, what could be bothering you. Still nothing really stood out. Yet, instead of breathing and taking a break, you are still running full steam ahead. You are irritable, short with others, easily annoyed, angry at times. You feel tired, mentally fatigued and you start spiraling more and more. We do this to ourselves often, and we don't have to. It is so important to stop for a moment. To get your footing and to really work to figure out what is wrong. Figure out why you are not feeling like you. The more we burry those things the more they grow. Trust me I know. I have been there, and try as I might I will be again. The idea that sharing our feelings is a burden is wrong. There is always someone there to listen. Just as you have been there for others, let them be there for you. Talk to your person. Write down your thoughts. Go outside and scream. Cry if you need to cry. Whatever it is you can. It is ok not be ok, and understanding that is a step in the right direction. Trusting there is always a way to feel better is important, and letting yourself pause and having a chance to feel better is where it begins.

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you know you are not alone. God is there. He has blessings all around you. You can pause. You can take a break. You can breathe. May you find a time to do that if it's what you need, and may you have the strength and the courage to do it.

Have a blessed, safe, healthy, and warm week everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Moments”

Celebrate life by appreciating the many moments it provides. Moments to laugh, share, cry, run, and play. Moments to watch the sunrise and feel the blessing of another full day to watch it set. Moments of peace, hope, and love. Moments to be kind. Moments we cherish and moments we nourish. The moment we meet that special person we spend forever moments with. Moments where we felt we couldn't go on and then we did. Big moments that influence our path. Subtle moments that carry us through our day. Moments with our children. Moments with our parents. Moments where we remember those that have passed. Moments where we understand it's ok to not be ok. Moments to be a positive influence. Moments to encourage, to praise, to give thanks. Moments that light up our mind and fill our heart. Moments we felt alone only to be reminded by those close to us we never are. Moments we had to lean on others and moments we let them lean on us. Moments we sit quietly and just talk to God. Moments we make memories and those moments that make us. Moments... Where we understand that life is amazing and every day in it is our moment to make it matter. 

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you make your moments memories. You celebrate living by giving all of you to every moment you can.

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy day everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Priorities”

"Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important." -Stephen R. Covey

It's hard to find the time to do it all.  Some things simply get lost in the shuffle of life. You have to prioritize, and truth is what you thought was priority today simply may not be tomorrow. Over the years as my life changed my perspective of what mattered most changed as well. People, places, jobs... Really anything can change in an instant. That change that can shake us up sometimes finds us at the end of the day with realizations. Realizations that the most crucial priorities, the ones most dear to us, the most important people and aspects of life we must focus on. There is never too much happening to put those people first. Those are the people that remain a constant and are the ones who often share and support the exact same priorities we do. Somehow, someway, no matter how much is going on, how much life shakes us, no matter where we go or what we do - those beliefs, those people, are always priority. You'll know it because you will find that no matter what, you will always have whatever time they need, and so will they... And that you can never be too busy for that.

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you take a moment to prioritize your life. You may find it helps create that needed calm in the storm. That breath you need. That moment you have been praying for.

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy day everyone.

Daily BITUB- “The Unfamiliar”

In uncharted territory? A place unfamiliar can bring all types of emotion... Fear, anxiety, confusion, anger, and doubt even in the strongest of minds. We have all ventured into the unknown either by choice, because we had nowhere else to go, or by accident as we pursued something we never should have. Regardless the reality of life is we have been, we will be, and maybe now we are going into a place we can't fully understand. It's true progression for us as we learn that which we didn't know before. We learn about our character, our strength, and just how powerful our foundation of faith really is. We learn the people that are unconditionally a part of our life as they venture with us into that unknown. We learn that other emotions exist there too... Happiness, excitement, clarity, revelations of just how significant our commitment and dedication to life can be once we are challenged. So, venture beyond limitations. Chances are that is where your wildest dreams live. You'll start to see that beyond those boundaries is the same beauty of support, of hope, faith, love and the familiar people who matter most.  Remember that leaps of faith put you closer to your dreams and wherever you land God is already there ready to catch you.

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you know you have a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on, a blessing to share life with. Sometimes we overlook it, but those people are there. We just have to realize and appreciate they are. 

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy week everyone.

Daily BITUB- “New Chapters”

New beginnings don't necessarily mean that we must abandon everything to start anew. In fact, it is the lessons and the experiences that often bring us to a place where we have the courage to start our next chapter. The ability to decipher what we need to hold on to and the things we must rid ourselves of can only come from dealing with those things that have held us back, challenged us and ultimately helped us grow. While it may be hard sometimes to determine what those are we must rely on the things that have carried us to this starting line. We can only truly know what those are if we allow ourselves to be honest with what really matters in our lives. That isn't always easy as the world is full of distractions. We are bombarded with things that bring us instant gratification, false foundations, and cloud what we really need. Trusting our faith to help us determine what we feel, think, and need helps. Prayer helps. Reflection helps. All of it is part of coming face to face with who we really are and who and what we want to begin our next chapter with. As hard and heavy as it may feel to even begin to take that next step... You already started the moment you realized it was time for one. 

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is for strength. Strength to close whatever chapter you must, and the courage to start what comes next.

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy day everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Unique Moments”

Every moment is unique. What we see is what we want to see. What influences one person may not influence another. What inspires someone may not inspire someone else. There are moments that impact us, situations that mold us, things we will determine are best for us, and things we must let go. We can dissect the moment thousands of ways. We can make it a learning experience that helps to develop our senses so we are ready when a similar situation arises. We can find our hidden strengths and exceed limitations when we encounter something that matters to us. We can capture mental pictures of the good in each memory so that we may use them when we need comfort in those moments we are not at our best. Images to grasp that will allow us to remember and focus on the beauty we have experienced and the feeling of happiness those moments brought. All so that we can once again move forward in pursuit of that happiness that carries us through all of our endless possibilities...  Where every moment is unique. 

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is you find the beauty in your perspective. You see what you must to realize what matters to you. You embrace the unique moments that are for you, and only you.

Have a safe, healthy, and blessed day everyone.
