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 #46 - Time is Ticking

So if you didn't know, I turned 35 last week. 
Oh dear goodness.
I actually remember when my mom was this age.  

Makes my eyes want to pop out of my head.  
Where did all that time go?
As I sit in my kitchen on the laptop typing away I definitely do not feel like I should be this old.  
Three children and two marriages later, I guess I am that old.  

I have been around the world, literally.  
I have been almost across the country.  I have not been to the West Coast yet!
But I ask myself why do I feel like I haven't even begun living?  Why do I feel like I am at a standstill?  

Time is ticking away every single day.

I think that one thing that has held me back is my fear of other peoples' judgment.  People who know me personally might laugh, but this is a serious lesson I had to learn.  I also have to practice it on the daily.

As a person, I have tried to please them all. 
Parents, bosses, friends, family, spouses, now my children, and all the teachers.  
The judgment from all these sources can be so overwhelming for this mama or any mama.  I know that it can cause all kinds of issues when all you are worried about is what will people say? 

The truth is people will say what they say no matter what you do.
Their opinions are biased and formed without all of the contexts.  
No one has walked one day in your shoes.
No one has seen one day in your eyes.
No one knows what goes on between your ears.  
Without all the knowledge of anyone, how can anyone pass judgment?

Your voice is important.  
Your dreams and goals are important.

People who are surrounded by negativity and judgment are suffering.  
They feel like they are not good enough.
Their brain is making them feel like nothing is ever going to be good enough.

I am here to tell you, stop listening to that mom who gives you a hard time.  
Quit listening to that boss that never listens to you.  
Quit listening to the friends who make you feel less than.
Quit listening to the family who has nothing nice to say.
Quit listening to people who only make you feel bad about yourself.

Start filling your space and your mind with positivity. 
It is hard, I know.
Days will not always be easy.
There will be times you just sit in your bed.
There will be times that you never really accomplish much.
It is okay.  
Life is starting to work in your favor, believe that.

Thanks for reading and always come hang out with me on social media.
Love your faces.
