What to do When Life Happens

I can’t begin to tell you how I feel right now; All I can say is God is up to something really huge. I want to encourage those of you who are currently going through something or just walking out of something to keep pushing and know that God has your back. Over these last few years, my life has be turned upside down and I couldn’t run from it or ask God to remove it from my life.  I had to put my big girl panties on and follow course with what God was leading me to do.

3 tips that you can do to remain calm when life happens:

  1. Go through it. Yes, I know it’s easier said then done; but if you don’t allow yourself time needed to go through your situation; You might just find yourself repeating those same things in your life again.
  1. Increase your prayer life. I always say stay prayed up so when life happens it won’t catch you off guard.  I find myself praying all in my car up and down the highways and in the tub.  I want to encourage you to talk to God on a daily and regular basis.
  1. Eliminate all distractions. Yes, turn off the notifications on your phone, get off social media and let go of people and things that are no longer serving you purpose. I took a year long break from everything last year while life was happening to me. I needed my mind to be clear and free from the opinions of others.

Now, I’m not saying that it will be a walk in the park, but what I am saying is that if you hold tightly to God’s hand, your journey won’t be as hard.  He will guide you through your transitions of life.  If you know someone who could use some encouragement, please share this with your friends and family!

We wear so many hats: wives, moms, sisters, boss, nurturers, and etc. You would think that we know that we should come first, but we have been taught to always put ourselves last and for some of us that has gotten us in a lot of trouble……..  Our health is suffering, our mental state and emotional state of mind is drained and when we do decide to do something for ourselves, we feel guilty or like we are doing something wrong if we put ourselves first and our own happiness.

Who Is LaTersa Blakely

I believe when you have a presence online, there can be various layers to who you are as a person. Well, I’ve gotten this question a lot in the past few weeks. Rightfully so, I’ve been gone a whole entire year. That’s a long time to be away from the social world and business industry. But, when life happens, you have to do what you have to do and take care of your personal well being and that is exactly what I did.  Nothing else mattered at the time except for my kids and my life.  See, I’ve share my space with you for over eight plus years, and doing my time away, I got really clear on who I was and who I was not.  I learned a whole lot of about my courage, strength and faith.

 

So, who is LaTersa Blakely, I’m a spoiled child of God (yep I’m his favorite)… I like to imagine myself always speaking to him and chatting with him while sitting on his lap; I’m a mother of two busy little people who I love more than life itself; I’m a big kid at heart, I like dancing in the rain, singing and being goofy; I’m a crafty gal and I love all things crafts. Actually, that is how I was introduced to the entrepreneurial world, as the “diaper cakes lady”; My first love/business was the LaTersa Diaper Cakes™.…. Behind the scenes, you will more than likely find me in or near the kitchen because I love cooking and experimenting with food. I love making people laugh with my silly and goofy personality.

I love encouraging and inspiring women to believe and value their worth and I love doing it via workshops, Live streaming, products and etc.  So, if you see me online or out and about, be sure to stop by and say hello. Have a great day and know that i’m cheering for your success and peace of mind. My advice to each of you reading this, is to never let anyone, life or your circumstances change you!

You are more than enough,

LaTersa

Believing In Yourself Is The New Sexy

Believing In Yourself Is The New SexyBelieving in oneself however, stems down from our childhood experiences. With lack of poor models or lack of encouragement from those we have learned to associate respect and trust on, it would be likely that our maturity would be marked by ambiguity of self image.

 

We know for a fact that parents only act according to what they deem appropriate or best for their children. However, doing the best don’t necessarily mean that they qualify to the universal standard of being the best. In fact, there are so many cases when their bests may have been a mediocre standard for others and in some cases, their best is no good at all. Nonetheless, they still perform them because they know nothing better.

 

No one could be blamed though. We were all brought up depending on the present means that were available at the moment of our growth. We are the products of the people, events and circumstances that were fated to fall as the exact pieces at the exact moment, at the exact place. The environment from which we have grown is sure to be the most perfect environment fit for our personal growth. Our reactions then to these events will determine how well we have understood and coped up with things.

If, however, you have become too comfortable in your comfort zone and could not muster enough will to improve your self confidence then be assured of an ordinary life, deprived of the real challenges and pleasures that everyone is entitled to.

Improving self confidence is not that hard to achieve. Your journey would be swift depending on your willingness to drive yourself to the end phase and to discard all that you have been acquainted to do (comfort zones).

 

The only place from which we may start is within ourselves. For long, we fed ourselves with impressions coming from the people we are interacting with. For long, we have practiced comparing what we can and what we cannot do with other people. Enough with comparisons! There is nothing to compare. We were all built to fit a specific design that is different from anybody else.

I do hope this article will lead you to the path of better understanding how your current confidence was shaped and how by your willingness to change will lead you to discovering that you are worthy of an amazing life. If this article has helped you in any way, feel free to share this with your friends and family!
