YoTrip Presents: I Am NOT That Girl Anymore


YoTrip

YoTrip

Over 90 days ago I penned this poem as a declaration of how I want my life to be different in the years to come. I have availed myself to people out of a desire to please and twisted obligation. I have decided to free myself and allowing others to find another path to accomplishing their programs and processes. I will unapologetically, choose my who, what when, where, why and how. I am not mad or sad, but more than anything else I Am Not That Girl Anymore! Happy Birthday to me 7/29/13
I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who could effortlessly gets it done

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who had all her balls up in the air at once

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who worked from both ends of the candle and clock

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who did not blink when you added to her things to do list

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that opened up and closed out the events

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that had one word she used for every request: YES

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that everyone expects to “handle it”

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that never forgets birthdays, anniversaries, or any day

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who was tough as nails and could take it all on

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that lived for the rush and rushed to live

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who kept it all together from top to bottom

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that could make something out of nothing

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that worked on projects  from pillar to post

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who was like the energizer Bunny always on the go

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who was always happy to accommodate everyone

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who waited and even carried the weight

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who could just fix it

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who sought to make everyone happy

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who never gets tired

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who has the headband, cape, belt, and boots –Wonder Woman

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who did it now and worried about how later

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who was always in the know

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who brought order, made the order, or gave the order

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that was always seeking perfection

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one filling in and feeling it no matter what

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one a centerpiece always in the middle

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who affirmed the “I’m Every Woman” Syndrome

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who cared for everybody but not for herself

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that welcomed more to do

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who did until it was done

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who was both careful and caring

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who aimed to please and was pleased to aim for all targets

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who always answered the call

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

It is a new day and I am walking into it!

4/28/13 The Commencement
7/29/13 The Beginning Of The Best Year

Wait or Weight

Have you ever  had to WAIT  on some people. place or possession to become available?

Did you fee like while you were in the mist of your WAIT you were carrying WEIGHT

The time that you were in your period of WAIT made you really focus on the WEIGHT of all your concerns

It is funny that as you WAIT (expecting something to occur) that you find that WEIGHT feels like it’s coming down on your world

Have you ever looked at why you WAIT and wonder how the WEIGHT gets so heavy

You have  heard the phrases: “It is worth the WAIT” or “WAIT on the Lord and be of good cheer” or “You are worth your WEIGHT in gold” or “If you want to get things done you may have to push your WEIGHT around”. The WAIT and the WEIGHT can be active and things take place or passive and actions occurs.

When you WAIT while watching your WEIGHT, you will see the patient hope from what was the WAIT or WEIGHT to what you can become! There is power in the WAIT and the WEIGHT in your life.

What are you doing during the WAIT? What WEIGHT is holding you back?

Who makes you WAIT? Who works with you regarding your WEIGHT?

When is it hard to WAIT? When does WEIGHT get in the way?

Where is the best place to WAIT? Where is the worst place for WEIGHT to form?

WAIT OR WEIGHT both can be heavy and light

PERSPECTIVE has to do with how you see the world from your mind’s eye. The who, the what, the where, and the when  in your life is shaped by your vision.”  7/1/13 ~~YoTrip

Everyone has the ability to form an opinion decision based on what you think,  see, hear, touch and feel. Your mind’s eye can set or change the course of your journey in life. Two people can view an event at the very same time and they will have different outcomes based on their perspective.

YoTrip’s Word For The Day: Blessings


Blessed

BLESSINGS: AN ACT OF ENCOURAGEMENT
 
Do you realize the blessings in your life? Most people will say yes without even thinking about it. We wake up in the morning and our minds are filled with all that we have to complete on our to do list. Did you say “thank you Lord” for my life, health and seeing another day? No you were so consumed with all the things that you wished you had. You forgot about the roof that covers your head at night, the closets you have busting over with clothes, you cannot see the floor for all the shoes that cover it. There is a choice of food items in your refrigerator, you have multiple bathrooms in your home, you drive a vehicle to your destinations and you have a job! All that is a blessing!
This morning as I was on my way to work I went off the normal path and stopped at a different place for coffee. The parking lot was busy with cars coming in and going out in a hurry. I looked out my passenger window and saw her slowing approaching the entrance of the store. This woman was wearing a heavy coat, a hat on her head and layers of tattered clothes in this Florida heat. The woman’s slowness was probably due to the fact that she pulled all her belongings behind her in an old suitcase.
 I rushed into the store unfamiliar with the setup seeking coffee. I found the coffee counter and looked for my favorite flavor. Begin to assemble the perfect blend of Joe, and looked for the bananas. I did not see the bananas around the coffee and asked the attendant who directed me to the front counter. I walked toward the front counter and encountered the woman as she carried a 64 oz cup of some red juice and looking at the change in her hand as if she did not have enough for this drink to quench her thirst. As our eyes met, I spoke and so did she, I asked if she would like something else to go with the drink. The woman nodded yes and pointed to the wings in the warmer. I asked the attendant to get her some wings. The woman looked back at me and I said get something else if you like, she whispered “one more thing” my heart danced at that moment. I received the blessing as I gave a blessing to the woman.
The blessing was the act of encouragement I received from the woman. The humility I saw in this woman’s eyes brought me to a place to acknowledge that we must recognize our blessings one by one. Our blessings may seem small but they are the gifts that God has bestowed upon us. I am thankful for each and every blessing that I received today?
Can you share a story of a blessing you received recently? Let me hear back from you, comment below.
