TESTIMONY... Almost two years ago to the day, i began a venture with an individual that would highlight my strengths and weaknesses for doing business with people. As i became more and more involved and willing to do whatever was necessary to make someone else's dream come true, my household and livelihood did just the opposite. For my involvement with this individuals company, i was promised a salary that was seldomly consistent all the while convincing myself that this individual cared enough about what i brought to the table as well as me as a man with a family. To say the least, the partnership didn't work and I walked away in debt in addition to almost losing my home TWICE! I could write a @lifetimemovies script for what I, as well as countless others endured while working alongside this individual but i won't bless the worthless with the publicity🤫
Am i bitter...NOOO... but i said all of that to say this. If you don't figure out anything else in this earthly life, you must understand that building relationships with people promotes respect, trust, honesty, and support amongst people you come in contact with on a daily basis. While i was out promoting this man's business, building his dream, and not being compensated for it, I was still building relationships and representing myself in a positive light. I could not see the blessing in the rainbow because it took me two years to get through the storm! #canigetawitness See, the seeds i was casting out and sowing, (building relationships) came back in the form of an unheard of business opportunity... NOW IT'S TIME TO REAP OUR HARVEST!! It took us 3 months to remodel and put our stamp on it and we still have some finishing touches as far as decor goes but we are open for business!! As you can see, the previous tenant tried to make it difficult for us 😉😎 My family and I have been Blessed Beyond Measure and all we want to do is provide the most Honest products we can from our team to the community! Please come visit the Honestly Smooth Smoothie Co at 2701 Frederick Rd Ste 301 in Opelika, Alabama... Honest Drinks, Honest Food, Honestly Smooth!!!
"We don't want no devils in the house God! We want the Lord! THAT'S IT!" A light 3.81mi to start my Sunday. Thanks to @sony for creating these lovely mx-100xm2 headphones.. they really pump out the "chunes" for my head top!
How did you start your day? I started my day declaring i will be better than i was yesterday. Today is my day. The past is what it is. Learning to let go and let God do for you what he intends. Everything is for a reason. Sometimes you just fall in love with passion and you do everything you can to nurture that spirit. I love myself. So i must nuture me and my spirit. - Inspired by @official_dolvett 's episode on @vanlathan 's "Red Pill podcast"
Oh I forgot to post this last week but yes this was hiding out on our back porch it was a cane break rattle snake!💀 that’s when a loft in the city seemed like a good place to live 🙋🏻♀️ #canigetawitness
Major #momfail missing out on all of the back to school photo opps. this week. This homeschool mommy was just #stayinalive. Kaiden started 5th grade with a cracked collar bone and a positive attitude, while little miss Ever (the adorable little photo bomber in the 2nd photo) started pre-k with #allofthesass. We learned, we created, we laughed, we cried. And when I say we, I mean me. And on Friday afternoon we celebrated surviving, I mean killin’ our first week with a trip to beach.
VITAMIN D YA’LL! #canigetawitness
Transitioning from a public school teacher into a home schooling mom is still a work in progress. Thank dear Jesus that His mercies are new every morning! Daily I remind myself that we’re playing the long game, to take my eyes off of the trees and take in the beauty of the forest.
P.S. teachers (public school, home school, private), I’m still praying for you. I’ll never stop. You have the greatest job on the planet. The most difficult job maybe, but also #thegreatest. May the Lord strengthen you afresh each morning and carry you through even the most difficult of days. May he anoint the words of your mouth to bless and the touch of your hands to heal. You’re doing something truly beautiful. You’ve got this! #appreciateourteachers
Sunday, I messed up. I ate almost a pint of ice cream and decided I was hungry after 7. I’m not ashamed to admit when I mess up. I don’t have it all figured out, all the time. I have moments of weakness. That’s why I don’t schedule “days off.” If you schedule a “day off,” that allows you to eat what you want or not exercise, what happens when you get weak? And YOU WILL get weak. I don’t schedule days off, because I know I won’t be strong every day. Those days when I’m not strong ARE my “days off.” I know some of you are skeptics. You don’t believe that I lost all this weight by not eating after 7, cutting back on portions, with no exercise at all. That’s why I’m asking those of you who know me personally and have been with me, after 7 pm, and watched me refuse to eat, to leave a comment below. If you’ve been with me on a holiday, like Thanksgiving, Monica, and seen me shut down the eating at 7 —on, I repeat, a holiday (!), please comment. If you’ve tried to get me to drink an alcoholic beverage and I said no, say something. I want everyone reading my posts to know how crucial caloric intake is, in your weight loss journey. As they say, you can’t out-exercise what you eat! #NoSweatDiet#Discipline#SelfieEvaluationDiet#JSimienMedia
