A Levesque #61 - Last Rope

 I can't even begin to describe the feelings that I have built up inside of me lately.  This is going to be personal mainly because God gifted me with the ability to not care about your opinion, and this blog isn't for people who know me per se.  It's mainly for my children so they can look and see everything will work out.   NO MATTER WHAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HOPE. I've been struggling. Never have I seen such selfishness. Never have I seen so much greed. Never have I seen so much betrayal.  Never have I seen families ripped apart because of ego and pride.   My house and my family will not be torn apart in the process.  We serve the Lord, and no weapon formed against us will prosper.  We are formed on a rock, not sand to blow away when trials come our way.   Somedays will be hard. Shit, somedays are hard. Somedays it will rain. Then, Somedays the sun will shine so bright you'll forget that it was ever raining.  Never give up on those you love.   Pray for them from

A.Levesque #41 - Who Cares What They Think

Back in front of the screen typing seems almost foreign to me, but yet here we are.  I think I got lost there for a minute.  I totally think that is normal, and if you get lost just jump right back on when you stop spinning out of control.  The only real critic you have is yourself. Everyone else's opinion really doesn't matter. Listening to yourself and what makes you happy is the only way to block out the noise.

So anyways

Hey, how have you been?
Me, struggling to do much of anything.  I am however grateful to be alive and well.  My family is well.  My children have been keeping me busy since the dance competition season is upon us.  It gets so crazy.  I cut some quilting templates out and am going to start some projects for that.

Life gets so hectic sometimes and I think we all get lost in it.

Sometimes I think we have to remember that it is okay to just be breathing.  Sometimes if all you did was make it through the day then YEAH for you!  Tomorrow you will make it too.  Just keep trying to move forward even if you only took a step today.

This week started and I tell you what I had big plans.  I woke up.  Took my happy little ass outside to smoke and when I sat down in my chair I realized that it wasn't as little as I thought.  I will share the pic somewhere else besides here, just go find it.  So here I was pep talking myself all the way out.  You got this girl.  Grab that coffee.  I was feeling like actually writing which has been the last thing on my mind lately.
Next thing you know my butt is sitting directly on the plastic that is not going to hold me for long.  So here I am with my broken seat.

Then this thought crosses my mind.
I can either blame the dollar store seat that broke or I could literally start working out.  Now here we go with some workout thing, but that is what I did.  Instead of wallowing in my big butted tears, I have worked out 4 days this week.
How in the world did I ever think that anything is going to happen without action?
How is my butt going to get smaller if I do not actually do something about it?
I actually have to hold myself accountable.
Don't worry if you are in the same boat, I am going to be rowing for both of us.

I want things, I know you do too.
I think that if I share myself with you that you might see that it is possible.  It does not happen overnight, and I think this is part of why people get lost.  Find a direction to go in, not a destination.
That is what I am good at.
I am probably the most transparent person I know.
I am not shy.  I am not quiet.  I am not that person. 
I want to help myself and you all at the same time.

I have been learning so much about so many different topics since I moved out of my comfort zone.  I am going to be sharing these things and many other things I think that will help us find what we are looking for.

Don't forget to reach out.
Create value for other people.
Never Give Up.

Thanks for coming over to read my blog posts.  I love seeing all of you on my facebook and other places.  I found my way to Twitter, Instagram, and Mix.  That is it.  I feel like a senior citizen now when it comes to this stuff.  Come check me out over in those spots as well.

Love Always.
