Win The Race With Endurance

Today has been a good day. How many of you get up in the mornings and say this? Do you get up with anticipation and drive to do all that you can in peace, or do you get up dreading the day before it even starts? You have a choice to either be grateful or in torment. 
After a great call with a friend I haven't seen or talked to in over 30 years until a few weeks ago spoke so much life and confirmation in to me today.  I was reminded about endurance and running the race that God has placed me in. This race is nothing about what I want, it's about what His will is for me and nothing more. You see, we have to surrender our will for His will because as you know, God's will is the platform in which we have been placed at the starting line to run and not faint or grow weary. We been called and hand picked for a time such as now. Its urgent and immediate. Are you running to it or from it? 
The past few months have been challenging on many levels and with these challenges my menta…

Trust The Process

Do you believe that delays are not denials? Are you convinced that you can achieve anything that you set out to accomplish? How bad do you want that thing? If you are like me, you will look at each step that you take and no matter how far you go, no matter the setbacks or detours, you will look in that mirror and say to yourself, I AM A WINNER. Say that out loud, shout it, I AM A WINNER.
Welcome back to The Unique View. Happy 2019 and I pray that each one of you are living the immeasurable and blessed moments of today and always. I am back to inspire and encourage you through my journey through this wonderful thing called life. Thank you for peeping in. I appreciate you!
Since my last post in July 2018, I took a break from a few projects to gain some clarity about what it is that I needed to do, and why I was doing it. You MUST know your why. I had too many irons in the fire AGAIN, and with no shock factor I watched some things spontaneously combust. I wasn’t shocked because I knew tha…

Stepping Back To Unveil

It has been a while since I have posted on the blog because I had nothing to say. I could not until now, put anything of substance in to words, here I am today. I pray that what I share with you today sparks your gears into motion. I pray that you will take the time out to evaluate where you are and where you desire to be and do. I pray that you understand that tomorrow truly is not promised and what you do and what you have to offer the world is revealed for the greater good of all of us, including you. Because you matter.  , For the past few months I have been in under a huge dark cloud. No real writing at all, just a little here and there. Reading has not been on the agenda either and for those who know me, know that I love to read. I have been unconsciously blazing through my days with this dark cloud of uncertainty. I'm over it.
As a woman with clinical depression and anxiety, I am fully aware that some days are good, some are great, and then there are those days I wonder wh…

Have You Given Up? Don't You Dare

Here comes Moses. Let my people go, he said. Imagine how Pharaoh felt when the plagues started hitting his little village. Can you imagine being pool side, sipping on your ice cold beverage, looking at the pretty blue water, and then all of a sudden it turns blood red. Red. Blood.How about them frogs dropping out of the sky? Yeah, that for me would be a major trip. God and his infinite wisdom knows exactly how to get our attention, just as He did with Pharaoh.  Though Moses tried to talk God out of using him, Moses still obeyed. Let my people go, he said.God will cause and allow chaos to usher us into obedience. Hear me, God causes some situations to take place and others He allows.Pharaoh was so set on the fact that he was not going to do what God told him to do, and he kept right on with his privileged life. Until God threw him a frenzy, like a 360 spinout. It’s really all about knowing the heart of God and His love for us. Just as our earthly parents would admonish us, God does th…

Obtaining Peace Of Mind

On December 30, 2017, I enjoyed a bus ride. I sat snug in a leather seat aboard a Greyhound bus heading to Daytona Beach, Florida.  I could have flown for an hour and gotten there in a snap, but the adventurer in me chose a 4 hour and 50 minute ride instead. I'm sure you have twisted your face, asking why would she pick a bus over a plane? Here is my why.

We all live our lives on extreme over drive. We wake up to rush to do whatever it is we must do. All day we rush. All day we are moving and shaking. At the end of the day, we rush home in rush hour traffic to rush, and then we shut down to only wake up to do it all over again. Tired is an understatement when the alarm goes off. Or if you are like me, an insomniac, you are looking at the clock when it sounds off. We repeat this cycle day after day and week after week and our bodies are screaming, STOP! But we don't stop.  Saturday is the day to get something done. So where is our rest?  We want everything now. We create stres…

Blocked On Purpose

When God puts up some road blocks in your life, don't look at it no other way than your protection. Why? Because we as humans want to be connected and rightly we should be, but the thing is not everyone is qualified to be connected to you and you are NOT meant to be connected to just anything or anyone. Not everyone has the capacity to truly see who you really are and your God given gift. Instead, see it as God aligning you upwards for a purpose greater than what you can see, think, or even imagine. Remember, you are His light for those who WANT to see His purpose. There is someone watching and waiting for you to glow.

There was a time in my life where I wanted and hungered to be connected to everyone that I came in contact with. I wanted everyone to see, know, and trust that I was for them and not against them. I wanted friendships to last forever and when that didn't happen, I was devastated. I remember a connection I had with a sister. I was for her as a friend. I was loy…

Swimming In Victory

We have all had to roll with lifes punches to the gut. Some of those punches have connected and took the wind out of our sails, much like depression where you just can't get out of bed or even take a shower. Other punches have stung us enough to cause us pause, like an anxiety attack in the grocery store in the middle of the day or a traffic jam on the interstate causing you to be more than late. Many of lifes gut punches have left us brused and battered mentally. Ever heard the saying, sink or swim? Are you sinking or swimming?

I'm not a swimmer in the literal sense. You won't hear me say, I'm going for a swim. Why? Around the age of 11 or 12  I almost drowned and that feeling of helplessness in a body of water was horrific. I was literally drowning. My family was in Portland, Oregon for a family reunion. My mother pressed and curled my hair. She told me that I could go to the park, but don't get in the pool. It was hot and at this time I loved swimming. Did I m…
