Begin To Correct The Damage That Has Been Done To You



Your ideas are unique. When you are able to share your ideas and experiences with others, it helps them to see things differently than they may have originally seen them. Help inspire those around you. Share your light and watch others blossom!




There have been two video's that I believe God in his grace placed in my path because I was destined to see them and be forever changed by them. These two things started me on my path and I am positive they will help you too! 


The first one was Author/Researcher Brene Brown, TED talk on "The Power of Vulnerability".  

This video was the perfect thing for this former burned out Fraud Investigator...who had gotten just a little too jaded and hardened by her profession. I had the blessing of seeing this video after my Mother had died after a long painful series of health issues. I was struggling and trying to avoid grieving, as anyone who has spent years building up a walls....this was something I had to do as an Investigator to prevent me from "feeling" and staying in that "professional" and "unemotional" place that allowed me to be very successful at my job. 



This video started the grieving process for me. I know that sounds odd, its a video on the power of vulnerability. There are just so many moments of ....just brilliance...and ding ding ding clarity. In particular, well first please watch the whole video, but moments at 5:30; 9:00; 11:21; 13:00 to 14:18 in particular. After rewatching this video 20 times I finally started the unraveling of my built up wall, and started grieving. I'm grateful to this lady and I'm now reading her book, Daring Greatly.

The second one, is a video by T.D Jakes, whom I had never heard of before and this video just completely floored me like completely floored me. I rewatched this many times over as well. 



Obviously this is a 3 minute clip of a much longer sermon....but wow...just wow. He is repeatedly saying you have been stuck for 38 years clearly referring to an example that wasn't included in this 3 min cut. 

At the time I was attempting to do some more healing on myself for an event that happened when I was ten years old. I saw this great video clip an I thought well, that was almost 33 years ago, which is what got my attention. 

I had the unfortunate luck to have crossed paths with a predator when I was around ten years old. I was kidnapped and molested...and I managed to fight my way to freedom. That person proceeded to stalk me everyday after school for several months. I spent everyday hiding behind trees and bushes to avoid him. Then several months later he forcibly kidnapped and molested me a second time. 

Again, I fought with everything I had and escaped. I ran to a house that was at the halfway mark to my home that I knew had the McGruff Safe House Sticker on it. They told us in school about those stickers and how if you needed help they would let you come in and keep you safe. I was hysterical, running for my life literally, clothes torn. I asked the woman, a neighbor and a mom of four to please let me in that I was being followed. She looked around and saw no one and denied my entry into her home. I pointed to her sticker and reminded her she had to let me in. She said to just go on home as she didn't see anyone and slowly shut the door in my face. I turned slowly and took several steps down the cement path and fainted. I awoke, terrified, not knowing how long I was out and sat on those steps and sobbed from the depth of my soul. I, then forced myself to run the rest of the way home since no adult was going to help me. I knew what it is like to beg for help and be turned away.

I didn't know what the words were that happened to me as they were not in my vocabulary whatsoever. My parents did have me see a child psychiatrist who uncovered what had happened. 

As you can imagine an event like this changes you in 100 ways, some of which you very much realize, and some not so much. It is probably why I LOVED being an Investigator, and still to this day love keeping the people I care about and love, very safe. I loved helping to make a serious dent in any bad guys day. Fighting the fight. I also have a real heart for any kid around that age who has had bad stuff happen to them, and like me didn't even know the words, or how to describe it to obtain proper help for themselves.


learn from courage, begin to correct the damage that has been done to you, becoming your personal best

This video has made me peel back a lot of onion layers that I hadn't seen before. I am very grateful and humbled to receive this well needed message. 

If these two video have helped you. Please comment below. I would love to hear how it helped you realize some things that needed repair work. 

Much love,

The Magic Bank Account

Someone sent me this and told me:

“Just take 30 seconds and read it. It’s worth it.”

They were right. 

In fact I’ve been thinking about this ever since......

It’s called The Magic Bank Account


Apparently it was found in Bear Bryant’s wallet after he died in 1982.
Bear Bryant was the longtime coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Here’s what it says:

Imagine that you won the following *PRIZE* in a contest: 

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for you to spend. 


However there were some rules:
1. Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.
2. You can’t transfer money into some other account.
3. You can only spend it.
4. Each morning when you wake up, the bank puts another $86,400 in your account.
5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time.  

It can simply say “Game Over!" and close the account.
And you won't get a new one.
What Would You Do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? 

Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. 

Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?

ACTUALLY, This GAME is REAL ......

Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*. 

We just can't seem to see it.
The PRIZE is *TIME*
1. Each morning we wake to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life.
2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us.
3. What we haven't used up that day is forever lost.
4. Yesterday is forever gone.
5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING.
SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.
Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life,
because time races by so much quicker than you think.
So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life!
Here's wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. Start spending.

Pretty cool isn't it.  What a great point!

Live well, Love deeply, keep a generous heart!

And what a great reminder about how precious every single day is.

My Fav Health Shake



What would you say if I told you- every single day- for lunch, I have 70 super foods, all my daily vitamins from whole food sources (not chemicals like a multi vitamin) pro and pre-biotics, with nothing artificial and it tastes amazing?!?!

Because when I heard all this I said sign me up! Anything to make clean eating easy- and convenient, works well for me and a busy lifestyle.

A huge bonus has been the how much BETTER I feel, in particular my hair and nails grow faster. I have never been able to have long hair only shoulder length since I discovered Shakeology a few years ago my hair has been thick, and down to my waist. Until just recently when I got a new hairstyle. I even got compliments at my Mothers funeral on how healthy and shiny my hair was...weird huh.

Shakeology, Shakeology ingrediants

Isn't this picture a trip! It's canisters full of all the superfoods that go into Shakeology with the description of their benefits!

love the shakes. becoming your personal best, shakeology


I seriously have a deep love for this shake! Chocolate is my favorite. 

This is the most fantastic thing you can drink for your health! Hands down. You need this!  

Love,
