Letting Go of the Fear

Recently, I spoke about a promotion Hubby might be able to get. He currently works in the spares industry; meaning he sells car parts!

Truthfully, I am so super proud of him! He has worked extremely hard this last year to prove himself within the company, to build up his clientele, and truly get to know the business. And I know it hasn’t been easy at times!

Late last year, we started noticing a shift in how things were happening. Simply, from what he was telling me the manager and area manager said and the extra duties he was doing...I could see that they were impressed with him. Then he got asked early this year to go assist another store in a stock take. For these stores, stock take is a weekend long job and takes multiple people.

It was a huge boost for Hubby. It meant a lot to be requested for something like this. So when the position for a manager at this other branch came available, I started praying about it.

Sunday Inspiration: Friendship

I spoke about the possibility of us moving to a new town and how the idea of leaving C breaks my heart. Here are a few Bible verses that I think truly define the context of our friendship and why I know she has been a blessing from God!

Sunday Social: Relaxing and Accomplishments



pinterest.com
What is your ideal way to relax: I would pour myself a steaming bubble bath with one of those lekker bath pillows that keep me from slipping down the tub. I’d have candles and a big glass of wine and a personal assistant to give me a conditioning treatment and facial. We would finish the bath as my face mask is just on and switch over to a comfy robe and giant lazy boy where I would receive more wine along with a mani and pedi. After this, my facial would be completed and I would end the time with a massage and wrap.....all the while, Hubby would be spending quality time with the boys out and about getting ice creams and no one getting in trouble for tantrums ;-)

Fitness Friday: Why Not You

Today, I'm going to give you a little rant....and yes, it will be little. It won't take much words to say what I need to say!

As a woman...I am tired of hearing "I'll never" I saw it TWICE in one day yesterday on my facebook and even got a similar comment recently on the blog!

I love this quote because it tackles this mind concept right on! As women, we tend to make excuses before we even get started! One excuse I've been hearing SO much lately is "I know I'll never be able to look like that" and usually it is capped off with "So I'm just going for being healthy."

Weekend Update and Prayer Request

Hi peeps! So our long weekend is over! I spoke last week about how I really needed to use this weekend to try some different parenting approaches and refocus our family. To be honest, it was a 50/50 weekend! I really worked hard with Lil Mister and the toilet. He did ah-mazing until last night. Of course, he had to bring my spirits down by giving me something to clean!

Otherwise....
LJ decided he was cold and spent some time in the warmer! Don't worry it wasn't on!

Sunday Inspiration: Uplifting the Word

I believe we are becoming too complacent with our Bibles. They are an after thought when in reality they should be our FIRST thought!
familyfoundation.org
Do you ever consider the impact it would have on your life if you began to spend as much time reading the Bible everyday as you do social media and emails? What if you reached towards your Bible to talk to God when life got hard instead of towards your cell phone to talk to friends? What if you checked your Bible when you woke up and again before you went to bed? How would this change your life?

Fitness Friday: Find Your Motivation

www.kimdolanleto.com
Things have been slightly difficult in the fitness category because of the weather around here. It basically rained for two weeks straight only letting up the weekend, when I already had plans for a big birthday camping bash! 

Needless to say...this has drained my gun-ho motivation a little. I still get some workouts in at home but for some reason I have a really hard time finding the ump to cross train if I'm not out running! (Anyone got a treadmill they want to mail to South Africa!)

So today I want to focus on what gives me motivation! 

This woman here....she gives me motivation! Because you know what....I want to be proud of my body! I am a type of woman that I need to be healthy and in shape to feel proud. It isn't about how society sees me but how I feel about myself.

For My Bladders Sanity and Because He Just Keeps Pooing

Peeps, I’m going to get real today. And I don’t think it’s going to be very pretty. But lets face it....sometimes a girl just needs to get it out there! Ya know, because airing our dirty laundry for the world to see is the cool thing these days!

Often as bloggers we only put the good out there. For some it is a matter of pride! They just can't stand the idea of anyone thinking less of them than what they truly aspire to be seen as. 

For others, it's about family values. I fall into this category. My family is truly one that believes what happens in your house stays there. They don't even discuss things with other family members. I respect this a lot but sometimes a girl just needs to let go!

And for some, they want to use their blogs to inspire and uplift! Which I totally support but sometimes the most inspiring thing you can write is about how it isn't all sunshine and puppy kisses and how your a$$ hurts a little and what the world you're going to do about it!

Scott Family Salsa

Hey peeps! I spoke the other day about how hard it is to get some good Mexican food in South Africa!
Finally, in the last year, El PASO brand has started becoming known here. One of our grocery stores does stock some of their items...but this is also not authentic! And honestly, it is disgustingly expensive!

Tuesday Tunes: Roar

It's been a while since we had a Tuesday Tunes around here but YouTube is working again! So, I couldn't wait to start sharing my song of the week!

Katy Perry's Roar is exactly how I've been feeling lately in my mind....ready to conquer! Now if I could just get my body to agree! ;-)

1. How much time do you spend on Social Media a day?…be honest: Between blogging....keeping up with friends and family back home...and my day to day...umm...a lot lol! No, seriously, between wifi access and everything I am pretty much on from 7am straight off and on throughout the day. I actually get frustrated because by noon....I feel bored! ;-)
