Growth is Painful…


We are not perfect nor do we need to pretend that we are. But I do believe it is necessary for us to be the best that we can possibly be if we want to enjoy life while here on earth. 

 

I started my journey of watching my diet and counting calories on January 16th. I will be the first to say, IT’S BEEN HARD… especially on days or weeks when I’ve been traveling. But, I’ve been fairly consistent and am down 12 pounds. I still have 20 more pounds to go and hoping to reach my goal to finally fit into my wedding dress of 35 years ago.

I have failed many times and given in to the Coca-Cola and chocolate but that’s ok. I have missed some days and weeks of exercising, and that’s ok, too. I’m just taking it one day at a time.

Just like the ocean’s tide, I have my highs and lows.

As long as I have the willpower, I will make it. And my prayer is that this time will be different. This journey is teaching me how much I have over eaten in the past and how out of shape I have become, if I can ever say that I was really ever in shape! LOL 😀 I don’t know how long it will take me to reach my goal, but I do know that once I do, my mindset has changed.

Just having turned 55 and living with an autoimmune disease has made me realize that life is way too short to not take care of myself and enjoy life as much as possible physically, mentally and spiritually.

It’s highly unlikely that I will make it as a pro body builder… 🤪 but I will continue my journey. I will continue to count calories. And I will continue to exercise.

Not much muscle tone yet but I am working on eliminating the flab! 😀 

Are you in the process of working on something to better yourself? If so, please share. I would love to hear about your journey and what works/doesn’t work for you in gaining results.

Another Laura-ism


Live life beyond any doubts.

Have faith in your God-given talents.

Find your purpose.

Let no one discourage you.

Be ambitious.

Don’t be afraid to fall.

Don’t be afraid to get back up.

It all starts and ends with you.

Welcome to Reality


Deep within each of us dwells a silent talent. A talent waiting to amaze. To astonish. To bring out the best in people even if it’s only within ourselves that we see the results. It would be a great mistake to keep this talent buried. We must believe in ourselves even when we are the only one. 

If the truth be told, we are the one who holds us back the most. Why? Because of the uncertainty of our own ability. Many times, we second guess ourselves and place restrictions on our God-given talents. Many times, the people with the greatest potential take the longest to reveal their talents because of their insecurities. But…nothing can really stop a good idea. If it does not present itself from us, it will from someone else. 

Every good idea, every dream, every talent waiting to reach its true potential will always seem impossible until it is finally accomplished. 

I am learning. I am growing. Every moment of every day, I am embracing my God-given talents to allow the place of where I am and where I hope to be to inspire me to become the best version of myself. 

I am patiently waiting my true realization.

Below are the links to my recent podcast platforms. I have finally been accepted to GooglePlay Music and ITunes. I am still waiting to hear from Spotify.
