make sure and look at the big picture

Sometimes you have to step back and look at the big picture and quit focusing so intently on the details. Even a work in progress shows results! Be grateful for the presentation where things stand now, even when its not complete or even if there is still lots of work yet to be done, because it truly shows you the work that you have done thus far. This is my reminder today as I take a deep breath and refocus.


You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.

Know your strengths, grow your strengths, and live in your strengths. Then, search and find the weaknesses that hijack your strengths and relentlessly improve them.

blog status

Due to some personal issues at this time, I am taking a break from my blog.  I will be back and will update you on all the missing posts regarding LiveBIG #2 and my trip to Salt Lake City and all the other things that have transpired in my world.  I just need some time with me and God right now.

reality of negative self talk

I posted this today Facebook:

The LiveBIG Mastery Coaching Call was desperately needed for me today. Facing some extreme negative self talk since returning from LiveBIG. Irritated with myself for having this issue. Frustrated that this is my default pattern. The fight for having courage and facing my fears is great!!! Please pray for me! I wanna be courageous, generous and loving.

As the day wore on, I then posted this on Facebook:

LOVE my LiveBIG buddies!!! I so NEEDED you today.

I Am Poem

I Am
by Misty W Gilbert

I am courageous, generous, and loving
for by knowing who I am
I am empowered to be a powerful creator.

I am not afraid of the truth of my life
for by learning more about me
I am able to discover who God called me to be.

I am going to share my story
for by living down my fears
I am able to be authentic and real.

I am convinced it won't be easy
for the truth to be known
but I will pursue sharing the message God gave me.

I am not worried about the impact
for truth lives in spite of the lies
I am determined to have faith and believe.

I am rewriting my story
for it is my unique life
I am a princess of the One True King.

In this, I will press on and be courageous, be generous and be loving!
