Motivational Monday: "No MakeUp Monday - Inner Beauty"


True beauty comes when you are find inner peace, solve problems and live a life that is harmonious with your surroundings. After you become a good person you will radiate attractive and healthy energy that will bring good people in your life.

Challenge:  Make a list of six qualities you like about yourself—half should be physical features—then rank them by what you deem the most appealing. Carry the list in your purse to remind yourself that you offer a full package of inner and outer beauty. Play up your favorite physical feature.

 
Question:  If you were an airbrushed version of yourself, would it really land you your dream job or guy?

Therapy Thursday: "Why Women Don't Get Help"

Chantelle Taylor-Bittings, wife, mother and owner of Chantelle Bittings, LCPC has been dedicated to providing quality mental health services for the last ten years. She is a graduate of the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana with a Bachelors degree in psychology. She obtained her master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in 2001 and is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Illinois.  She is also a National Certified Counselor.



One trend that I tend to see a lot is women is masking.  A lot of women are hurting, grieving, feeling insecure, or inadequate, unloved or unworthy of love but yet they are hiding these feelings behind a multitude of things.  We tend to do things that we think will help us to feel better, but these things are just temporary.  How many of us, find ourselves walking around Target spending unnecessary money because we have had a bad day?  Instead of talking about it, or working it out, we mask it with shopping. Or maybe when you are feeling bad, you overeat. What was just one cookie turned into the entire bag.Sometimes, we turn to drugs or alcohol.  Sometimes it’s a bad attitude or maybe gossiping about others to make ourselves look or feel better.
The reality is that people have been hiding since Adam and Eve ate from the tree of life and then covered themselves with fig leaves.  When God came in the garden, he asked“Adam where art thou?” Now of course the all knowing, all seeing, everywhere at the same time God knew where Adam was hiding.   The question was asked so that Adam would know that he was not hiding anything from God.  
Genesis 3: 9-10. And the Lord called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10. And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden , and I was afraid because I was naked, and I hid myself.
This brings us right back to our modern day fig leaves.  What are you trying to hide from God?   Are you hiding your depression, anxiety, low self esteem, your history of abuse, your eating disorder? What are you hiding? And even more importantly…why are you hiding? Are your children, your husband, your job, or your friends more important to you than YOU ARE TO YOURSELF?  Ladies, take some time today, to re-establish your relationship with YOU.  Take off the masks and be real with yourself.  Are you overscheduled? Are you a people pleaser? Do you have some unresolved issues , hurts, or situations that could be helped by seeing a therapist?  Whatever, it is, stop hiding.  Get help!   YOU DESERVE IT!

Motivational Monday: "No Makeup Monday, HELLO World!"


Happy Monday World!!!!  This NO MAKE UP MONDAY started off  Simply Fantabulous with a workout, juicing and finally getting dressed to tackle the world.

Although my alarm went off at 6:15am,  I was truly awakened by the sun peeking through the curtains of my bedroom balcony.  How grateful am I to see another day and to feel my aching legs.  Let me tell you about these legs.. lol  Over the weekend, I started a new work out DVD with my friend Rasheeda Bibbs called Black Girls Workout Too and I am feeling the burn.... in a good way :) If you're looking for a good workout be sure to click the link below, we'd love for you to join us as on our fitness journey.

Following a wonderful workout I indulged in a juice with sweet potato, ginger, apple, carrot, celery, lemon and beets... talking about some kind of good.  If you need recipe ideas, check out my sister and friend Sandra Howse Dillard of HealthyHowse.

Be sure to post your photo's for No Make Up Monday, I look forward to seeing them.


OAN:  I love my spiritual sisters.  As I was typing this post I received a message saying "Good Morning Sisters, Sun is shining and the Son is shining, it's a great day!"
