Once again, I am sitting here unable to go to sleep and wondering how long this will last. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing that I chose this particular time to decide to create a blog post, but hey, who knows what tidbits of wisdom might come out of this.
As I start to think about this year and how it’s gone, I’m noticing that I’ve changed a lot. I’ve learned to let some things go and I’ve learned to be honest, not only with others, but with myself. Now I find myself looking eagerly towards 2012.
I am excited about the changes that are about to take place for my family, my businesses, and my spiritual life. Some of the changes make me nervous, but it’s funny, I’ve spent the better part of the last eight years feeling little more that desperation and dispair, so excitement is feeling really good right about now.
For the record, starting January 1st, the following businesses are back in full effect…. MOTOR CITY BALLOONATICS/DESIGNER TOUCH EVENTS….. offering the very best in wedding and event planning and decorating services (http://www.motorcityballoonatics.com – under construction); THE KEEPER OF THE BOOKS….. offering professional administrative clerical, bookkeeping and income tax prepartion services, now featuring the SNAP*LOAN (in coopration with Santa Barbara Bank & Trust).
I am also excited (although I probably look more like a deer caught in the headlights) about this new chapter in my walk with the Lord. It’s funny, someone accused me of running from my destiny for more than 15 years, and for the first time in my life, I had to admit that they were right. I heard the call, heard it clearly, but I ran in the other direction as fast as my feet would carry me. But the best part about it is, A DELAYED DESTINY, IS NOT A CANCELED DESTINY!!….. I’m glad that I finally have the courage to step up to the plate and be what God planned for me to be. I have a testimony and it’s one that can be a blessing to others…. wow…. you could blow me over with a church fan right about now, but it feels good to say it.
My hobby channel (http://www.nutz4beauty.info and/or http://www.youtube.com/user/nutz4beauty) has been just as neglected as this blog and my vlog channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/inpraize), BUT NOT IN 2012.
I still have to setup a blog for both businesses, but I believe that I have been given a divinely organized plan to accomplish everything that God has placed on my mind and heart. I had to learn to stop running from the ideas He kept giving me because if He’s giving them to me, then He’s going to make certain that they come to pass because He knows what He’s doing.
Well, I’m getting a little tired of typing and I think my brain may have shut off about 5 minutes ago (lol), but there is one last declaration that must be made before this blog goes any further…. I DON’T CARE HOW IT HAPPENS…… I’m determined to lose 45% of the ME that I currently carry around everyday. Not certain how I’m going to do it, but with prayer and a keen knack for researching the crap out of a topic, I WILL LOSE THIS WEIGHT ONCE AND FOR ALL …. my goal is to leave out of my house and walk about the block with my husband.
Well, that’s about all I can think to say in this post… hopefully, I’ll get more interesting as the days go by.
Stay Saved, Stay Sincere and Stay Connected!!!
