Fashion Friday- What is your favorite store?

Oh how I love clothes! clothes! clothes! I can’t help but wonder how so many people come up with so many styles. It’s amazing to me how every style makes you feel unique, confident and special. From business casual to girlfriend fabulous to hanging out with the kids, there is a style for every occasion. One of my favorite stores is Jones New York. I can get an outfit for every occasion, great guest service and feel trendy all at the same time. Now it’s your turn to weigh in write a comment or twitter me and tell me what your favorite store is and how it makes you feel? Macy’s, Bloomingdale, Saks Fifth……what is it?! Life Advisor Tina

Revelation Thursday- Two Things About Fear

Fear is like a venomous snake. Once it bits, the venom slowly and methodically kills off the dreams in your heart. So how do we overcome it? It is important to know, that fear feeds from what you don’t know. So whatever your dreams are, you need to get yourself educated on the matter. From fixing credit to how to have successful relationships, you can get great information on-line, at your local bookstore or library, there are tons of experts and mentors willing to help. When you do this simple step, you will dispel the myth behind your fears.

Second, get great support on your side. I am a true believer that people are more successful when they have real support. You can choose relatives, friends, experts, mentors, neighbors or even coworkers. The main point is to make sure they support you with what you are trying to do (if they don’t drop them like a bad habit because their fear will soon be your fear). Your supporters will become your cheerleaders with positive words and great suggestions of how to think outside of your own thoughts. Also they will tell you the truth, encourage you, keep you motivated and focus. Believe me when fear rears its ugly head, your support will be strong enough to combat its venom.

Just following these few steps will help you put fear under your feet and free you to live your dreams. Life Advisor Tina

Yesterday Is Gone!

Yesterday is gone and you can’t change it. It is as a picture: a still image of something that has already happened. And I don’t care how you turn it: to the left, to the right, to the front or to the back. It is the same image and change is not an option. Many people get caught in this horrible habit of living in yesterday. Never fully looking into their past as something they can personally learn from or personally face. In life, we all experience bad things that can take us places we don’t want to go. However it is how we process those experiences that will decide how we continue to live in life.

Have you ever dated someone who seemed so familiar you could not remember where you knew them from but realized they reminded you of your ex-wife, ex-husband or you last 5 boyfriends/girlfriends? I have! A few years ago, me marriage fell and eventually ended up in divorce court. I was so devastated. As a Christian, I didn’t believe in divorce but greater than that I loved my husband and did not want a divorce. However, he felted different and we were in divorce court before I knew it. It took a few years dating men that seemed just like him before I realized I had a serious problem on my hands. I did not really understand it at first but eventually I realize I had not processed this event in my life that it would be a learning experience versus a stumbling block to my present. In my subconscious my dating experience was my second, third, fourth and fifth chance to make my marriage work. After all I had to prove that I was worthy of being loved by my ex-husband. It did not matter that it wasn’t actually him; I just wanted to have another chance at being loved by him. But I was just lying to myself and not living in my present.

I had to face a few pieces of truth to let go of my past:

1. Marriage is not always to death do you part
2. People can grow apart
3. People have a right to happiness
4. I am responsible for my happiness not my ex-husband
5. Divorce is not the end of the world
6. My ex-husband leaving did not make me less than a person

With these new truths and a few new skills and tools, I am living in today and not in my past. Notice I did not talk about a new man or marriage. This is about letting go of your past and living in your present. No matter what we do we can never change the past. All we can do is start again brand new, with new skills, new tools and a new attitude.
