Her Post- My Plan To Fight Fear and Win

This post was meant to be about why I’m not an average girl, something light and funny, just enough to put a smile on your face in a middle of the week day. Turns out...It's a little more serious!

Today it is all about making a Plan. It’s not just a Plan, it’s a commitment. Today I let go of Fear. This horrible, sneaky, two-faces feeling that haunts me every single moment and crawls into my mind whenever times are getting harder. Fear is what keeps us distant of Him. Do you consider yourself a believer, a man who trust in God and recognized Him as a Superior Force?? And why do you still fear?

My tendency is to underestimate...Yes, we are so small and yet so capable to do big things.

In order to be fearless, I have to let Him take care of me. Being a scare little mouse offends God, because it is like I totally ignore his power…He said it before: I will never leave you, nor to forsake you. (see Hebrews 13:5).

So from this day, I make a commitment to God and to myself to banish Fear and doubt from my life. I am not going to fear anymore of not finding the right job, but I’ll try to do my best applying and searching with optimism and faith. I refuse to struggle anymore, I refuse to deny His will.

God is playfull. Blind man's bluff is his favorite game. Don't be shy, do not fear!

My never endless steps Plan is:
  • Make a little God box ( nope, this is not my idea) where I’ll write everything that worries me in that moment and let Him deal with my complains.

  • Be gratefull each day. I’ll make a conscious effort to name thing for which I am gratefull, even smaller ones.

  • Take action. I’ll try to do my best for maximizing my chances in terms of a career. Applying, searching, reading and creating new mass media content will be on the top of the “ To do’s”.

  • Visualising my Job. For many, this step is against all I’ve wrote above. I firmly believe that the more you fill yourself with joy and good thoughts, the more He has room to interfere. People visualize not because they believe in a magical formula, but because this is God’s tool as well.

  • Keep track of my feelings. This is huge. It means hard work and the strength to push away Fear.

 Do you have a certain Plan or do you want to get rid of something that makes you feel vulnerable?

Her post- Nothing beats a good cry

Hi, everybody! Let me apologize for the hell of a mess I have been lately due to some …situations.

First of all, God has given to all women out there a special gift that supposed to help us make babies. But since I’m not planning to give birth any time soon, it’s all about copping with the nerve racks of PMS. Secondly, I’m just one month away from my Final. Sleep problems, weight loss and emotional instability are key words these days. Think of me like at a chameleon. Now I’m ok and I can carry a conversation, next moment you may step aside, otherwise you will drown in my tears.

I tried everything from eating loads of sugar to watching Rio, but in the end, nothing beats a good cry session. I shoved my head into hubs arms and went for it. The result was moist and mushy and his t-shirt went straight in the washing machine. Yuck! And Yuhuuu! My chest felt less congested, my eyes got a good nice polish and I slept last night like a baby, despite that mean full moon.

I've heard that pole dancing workout it's a stress reliever...Ouch, my back hurts!

My husband may not be the ideal husband for you ( I prefer it that way), but I’m willing to rent his services for a day or two per month when you have the impression that the world it’s a bad place and even the ice cream lost the magical effect on you. He can rub your back, wipe your tears and put a smile on your face in a heartbeat. In return, he’ll ask for this:

God damn you, Ben Ten! You are like men's " Sex in the City"

And this ...

He brought heath at a new dimension. Cauliflower florets instead of chips and popcorn?

And if you need further sessions, you can easily trick him with ….

Her Post- Make the best of a fight and own it!

I say tomato, he says potato. That’s how we roll it sometimes. We re not the kind of couple that can last weeks without arguing, but what works for them may not work for us. And it really doesn’t.

As you can remember HERE, he’s an Aries and I’m a Scorpio. Needless to say, fireworks definitely happen how and then and they are not out of joy. I find nothing to be ashamed in walking away in the middle of the street if that means stopping an argue. 90% of time we end up pretty quickly together, laughing and making fun of our immaturity.

Shoshhhmolsghj, munfff snifllensn......

If Saturday things were laid back ( we cooked and took an evening walk), Sunday Faith wanted to have fun. Bicycle lessons were on our list, but hubs got a little grumpy ever before waking up. His morning snoring broke my sweet dreams and there I was, sitting in my butt, half opened-eyes, forced to listen the most horrible “ song”. My plan? Shake it, baby! So I did. I started shaking him back and forth and when that failed I turned to little back punches. That worked. The snoring stopped, but so my lessons.

I have no pitty for him. God bless the woman who did this.I hope she can have some quiet.

“ You never let me sleep! What’s with the back punches? And why a man can’t have a decent sleep in his own bed? I’m cancelling our morning plans, go ahead and figure something else, cause I need more sleep .”

Did you pay attention at his First words?? Sleepy people tend to be very…uncommunicative since they are with one foot in Dream land. So I did that. I packed some snacks and my jumping rope and left the house cat style. Meanwhile, my battery phone got dead. I spend a couple of hours outside, walking or sitting on grass, reading a cheesy magazine while munching an apple.

Draw a line in the middle of the screen. Second plan view: Hubs gets up, gets angry because I’m not there and gets out. He meets with a friend, they hang around and comes back when hunger kicks in, just in time to find me squeezing a tear at “ No strings attached”. We try to ignore each other for like 5 minutes, but Love Wins every time , right?

Kiss  Kiss  Hurray!!

Fights are like bitter sweets chocolate. Bitterness comes first, you almost wanna spit it out, then the sweetness spreads into your mouth and you want it to last longer before going down to your throat, leaving a silky, smooth texture .

Her Post- There’s room for everybody

Breathe.  Just stop for a second being so damn caught in the middle of your daily, small, superficial races. My mom always said that…Well, my mom didn’t really cared much about this stuff, but I’ll say it myself : There’s plenty of room for everybody.

My friend got a job. And he didn’t even tried hard or wished for it. My competitive self couldn’t stop wondering why God choose him instead of me, who I pray each day for an opportunity like that. I was angry, disappointed and ashamed of my thoughts. What human being could be so selfish to feel that for a friend?

Try beat your personal record. You'll find that it's a a deceiving battle.

I eventually figured it out. We are “trained” from childhood to compete. From getting a better seat for a concert, to having a bigger paycheck. That’s why we constantly feel the pressure to do better, be smarter, and if we don’t take action we are called “one of those people who settle for less”. But who can decide for another what is less?? My sister in law wanted to be a saleswoman and to have kids. Why is that “less” if she is Happy? At least  she’s not competing for goals that she doesn’t really care about just to Do Better.

See through your eyes and keep it simple. Life isn't a struggle.

What does the Bible says?

Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men”

Galatians 6:4 “ But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor”

Galatians 5:26 “Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. “

Set yourself free from the trap of envy. Be gratefull.

So today I’m more humble and more aware of all the room we have here, on earth. I’m really bad at math and I can’t count the possibilities that God created for each one of us. Tear apart your little box and start exploring His paths, without looking right or left. Do it NOW !
