Take Me to the King..because He is the Same God & He is Awesome {Now Listening To}

So last night I was finally able catch up with Celebration of Gospel that aired like 2 weeks ago and I LOVE IT! Below are some of the artist that performed along with the songs that they performed. It's just refreshing about the realness of each song. Tamela Mann speaking the truth on how we can get tired sometimes, tired of doing chuch, then Tye hit's up with "If He Did it before, He can do it again, the Same God right now, is the same God back then". And finally Charles Jenkins and crew delivers and AWESOME song. These songs have been on repeat all through the day while I've been at work. Simply Amazing. God is......

The FuNK {Rant}

And no I am not talking about " the blues in my left thigh trying to become the funk in my right." - Love Jones

I'm talking about that state of being that I get in when there is absolutely no motivation to do anything, besides eat. I don't know what it is. Like, I've been trying to find some motivation to get things done.Things like sticking to my challenges such as juicing for 30 days or no meat for a month, updating the blog consistently, and just sticking to my guns. 

I remember when I wanted to move to NY, I was adamant about moving here, tried to save money, make plans, little by little. One thing that helped me was when I cut out magazine pages in letter shapes that spelled out New York. Every morning I woke up and that was one of the first things that I saw. It reminded me everyday, this is where I want to be. 

Now that I am in NY, I've been stuck in ruts, boughts of minor depression, worry, losing focus, etc. I understand now that everything will not just happen all at once, I need to get my focus in the clear, go back to what worked, which was trusting God and doing my part. I often quote this verse from the Bible "Write the vision, make it plain" Habukkak 2:2. The only minor issue good problem with that is I have A LOT of vision! Now, I just have to get it all down on paper and categorize, plan, prioritize and EXECUTE. The only thing stopping me is myself, and really all I have to do is just do it. Once I get started, I get in a zone and hope that my ADD (joking) doesn't kick in. 

Let's pray that my mojo will gladly walk back into my life and decide to stay for a while.

Where's your Mojo?

April Foolery {Rant}

March came and went; more like a blur than anything, which tells me to spend my time more wisely. With this being the first of the month, I want to go over some things that I will become foolish over for the whole month of April.

Today I started my 30 Days of juicing, which will definitely be challenging, but I know if I stick to it, I will be able to complete some goals that I have. My motto for this month is "Remember the Why". It is currently on my phone's lock screen, so every time I look down at it I can stay focused.

Another foolish thing that I will get into this month is going hard on my workouts. Not only do I want to focus on the physical aspect of working out, but also the mental and spiritual parts. I've been finding lately that my mind has been running a mile minute with thoughts, ideas, ramblings etc. I really wish my legs would run as much as my mind does, but I digress.

Lastly, because I know I cannot cram everything into one measly ole month, I want to  get foolish about my hair care and promoting it's growth. Last month I whipped up some shea butter and some essential oils, at first for my body, but I also decided to use it in my hair as will, while I do twist outs and such. I do mainly want to focus on growing my edges out, because BABAY, they are not the business right now.

So here's to a prosperous month of April, filled with juicing, hair care, and peace of mind.
