I got a disturbing call from my son, Tomazye this past week. The voice on the other side of the phone was sad and soft, not at all like the robust and exciting young man I love so much. Tomazye said to me in the most heartbreaking voice “mommy I hate school”. As I processed his words I began to realize that my son is really struggling with college life. I began to give him some words of encouragement that I hope will motivate him to stay in school because right now he has not come up with any other good option for his life.
I have one simple question, are you coming to Get Courageous?

Thought for Today: Stay positive even when you are feeling bad about your situation.
Recently I have had several conversations with a few women who are feeling really down about their life’s circumstances. Some are dealing with financial problems and others are dealing with relationship issues. My advice to them is to stay positive despite their circumstances and lean on God for the help and support they need.
I understand that life can get you down at times but if you give into those negative feelings you could fall into a depression that is hard to overcome. But if you decide to focus on positivity it becomes easier to find a solution to the problem at hand. All and all positivity wins out every time.
This Week’s Message: Don’t focus on the negative focus on the positive!
This Week’s Assignment: Identify an issue that has been bothering you and this week practice turning all of your negative thoughts into positive thoughts.

I just returned from spending the most amazing time in Mexico with my wonderful hubby Jamil celebrating our 11th year wedding anniversary! We had the best time enjoying each others company. However even though we were celebrating our marriage the theme of our trip was rest and relaxation. We wanted to make sure that we both got replenished because the first half of this year has been very busy for our family.
Thought For Today: When all else fails try one more thing. It might just work.
Have you ever felt like giving up? I know I have. Several years ago I was struggling so badly financially I wondered if things were ever going to turn around for me. I prayed and I tried doing everything I knew to make my situation better but nothing changed. Then one day I decided to totally surrender my problems to God. I could no longer fight, be stressed out or worry about the outcome. I was tired of worrying about how I was going to pay my car payment, light bill and mortgage. I finally asked God to help me see the plan he had for my financial relief. And slowly He revealed His plan to me and I had to take action. Instead of giving up I decided that I was going to take one more step because I knew my next step could be the step that put me in a totally different financial situation and that’s exactly what happened. Day by day, step by step I began to dig myself out of the financial whole I had been in for years. Overcoming my financial burdens was only possible because I trusted God’s word and I took another step. If you want to give up on a difficult situation or your situation has got you down take my advice and surrender your cares to God and take the next step. It might lead you exactly where you want to be!
As I thought about what to write this week, I thought about how so many women are fighting to overcome some of their set backs and reach their dreams. This prompted me to think back on all the pain and disappointments I have experienced in my own life. There has been unimaginable pain and sometimes I have felt all alone. However I know I am far from alone in my journey because I have also helped other women overcome their pain and set backs. Read more
