About Me

Mother of 2, Child of God in Atlanta "They always ask me if I make it am I going to forget about them, but the question is, if I don't make it will they forget about me?" My spin : RealTalk When u are up everyone wants to hang on, but look for the ones that let you lean on when you are down. Remember...don't just look for me when I am up, support me when I'm down. ♥ In prosperity, your friends know you, in adversity, you know your friends. I asked God for strength, I got adversity. I asked God for wisdom, I was made a fool of. I asked for patience, I had a difficult relationship. I looked back, He gave me what I asked for. Adversity showed me I was stronger than I thought; being a fool opened my eyes to discernment making me wise; the difficult relationship showed me that patience is earned not given. Blessings come in many forms, not all of them recognizable.

Self -Exam

I was in Blogland, and one of my favorite bloggers (LadyLee)  had two quotes from a book she is reading...I can honestly say....I get it now. I felt as if God were talking directly to me. Here are the quotes:

You will never respect anyone you are capable of deceiving. (yep you won't lie to someone you respect, you won't respect someone you can lie to)

Right people energize you. Wrong people exhaust you (Getting rid of those that exhaust me.) You can tell if folks exhaust you...Listen, if his/her name comes up in caller ID and you ask yourself 'Am I in the mood for this'...they exhaust you. If you have to be in a certain mindframe to engage in conversation with certain folks - they exhaust you...If you find that certain people ignore your phone calls or seem unavailable ALL THE TIME - YOU exhaust THEM - do some self examination #potmeetkettle Talking to myself as well.

I've gotten rid of all those in my life that I have to "woo sah" after being in their presence or having a conversation with. It's amazing how peaceful your life is when you don't have that negativity floating around.
