Sometimes you have to say it is not okay

As a business owner I have truly learned it is okay to say "it is not okay." People tend to think you have to settle and you don't. Just like you trust God for your paycheck, I trust God will send the right customers who will appreciate our time, efforts and talents.

I have found our most loyal customers are Blessed because they appreciate the efforts of others. It's a cycle because when all you know is how to get over, you don't realize you are really getting over on yourself. As my husband said "it's always easy for the person receiving to miss it." Or as my Mom would say, "if you do good you are doing good for yourself."

This season remember to be a blessing to someone else. Remember to open up a blessing so huge for someone else and watch God do the miraculous in your life as well.

I can't waste time worrying about your opinions of me

I thought about the numerous times I worried if I had offended someone. I realized that life is simply too short. I don't know what people believe you owe them but at the end of the day I feel like I owe an honor to God and I know I have been charged to raise my family. Everything else is what it is.

I am not going to spend my life biting my tongue. I am going to voice my concerns and move on. Opinions come a dime a dozen and everybody has one. So, if my opinion offends you and you can't come to me like a grown up, I really feel that's a decision you have made and will have to get past it in your own time. Whenever, I present something it is because I feel like it might be hurting someone else as well and needs to be addressed.

I am simply grateful to God for my family and therefore, I know the enemy is always going to try to create strife to get at them. If I don't show up for something know my family will always come first because that's the one thing I know God put me here to do. If I feel led to do otherwise it will be because God has led me to choose something first. However, at the end of the day if I have to choose they will come first.

I am a strong believer that it starts at home so if I lose my family chasing after activities then my life will have been in vain. I will serve God with all my heart and all in the way He directs me. I will not live my life how God led you. Just trust and believe I know more than what you think or believe. God first, family then activity for me. #beblessed
