So last night, well not so much, technically it was this morning around 3AMish, I stumbled across someone else’s quote/thought and tweeted the following:
Do not ask the Lord to Guide your Footsteps if you are not willing to move your feet.
And it got me thinking. I’ve been praying and asking The Most High for many things that my actions, apparently, aren’t ready for. For instance, I constantly pray for good health, yet I still eat, fast food, junk food, Ramen noodles and drink Coke (of all things). Or I pray for a promotion and find myself chatting (I LOVE TO TALK) with my co-workers far too long, rather than working. I’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! I absolutely know better, so WHY…OH WHY! am I still partaking in such insanity?!?! If you know better, you do better right? Wrong! Well, at least in my case. I can’t really pinpoint what my problem is but it’s surrounded by bad habits and lack of discipline and focus.
What do I do now? Keep wallowing in my own embarrassment and shame or pull up my boot straps and move towards the light?
Some of you may be doubtful or in disbelief when you read this, however I am moving towards the light. I’m well over do for a personal change. I know this personal change will catapult a spiritual and professional change as well! I can’t wait to meet the new me.
Many people can make this transformation overnight and some need to ween their self off the poisonous behavior. I’m probably a combination of the two. So if you see me about to go ham on a cheesy quesadilla or lingering too long with the ladies, PLEASE DO NOT judge me. Politely remind me of my mission and offer me some sort of inspiration.
I’m not really sure I want to know what you think, however I welcome any positive suggestions, quotes, healthy recipes or affirmations you’d like to offer.

I tried, but y’all know I had to do this…it’s long overdo.
