Another Fine Mess

March 6, 2019

Don’t be ashamed of your story it will inspire others.

I can’t even count how many messes I got myself into through the course of my life. Actually I wrote a book about them all. How May I Serve. I have a pen name Karen Mathews. You can go to http://www.howmayiserve.net or http://www.monicabennett.net to find out about all the messy details. And girl is it juicy!!!!

Boy, I was a hot mess. But you know what I did? I turned my mess into a message! That’s rights, I turned it around, upside down, inside out, side ways and twisted it so much, that’s you won’t recognize me from who I am now. How about you? Are their some messes you want to clean up? Before you do, be honest with yourself, become aware of them and forgive yourself. Then find the support you need to turn your mess into a message. You just might inspire someone else to find the strength and confidence to know their not a f*ck up. When you know better you do better. At the time I knew nothing!!! I knew jack sh*t!  I was an insecure, lost, frightened young girl. But I needed to smell the coffee or (I like to smell roses more) really quickly because I was cruising for a bruising.

So if you’re reading this and you’ve gotten yourself in some messes, this might be the sign you were looking for to get out of shame, blame and all those emotions that keep you in the dark. It’s okay. The more you bring light to your wounds the more you can heal.

Ask for help! Reach out! You’re not alone.

People Who Inspire

July 7, 2015

I just love being around people who inspire me. People who are upbeat, positive, and responsible. People who have been through adversity, however choose to overcome their challenges. Last night, I attended my toastmasters meeting and the members are people who inspire. One woman, gave her icebreaker speech that was so touching, personal, and inspirational, that you felt like you were right there, in her story. Wow. it was so good. That’s how we connect through the heart with compassion.

Another gentleman, gave an advance speech about, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He gave us all hand-outs on “20 Things Boys Can Do to Become Men”, by Kareem Abdul Jabbar.  I learned so much about this great sports figure and man that it inspired me to want to be a better person. That’s what people who inspire, do.  So, who are you associating with? Do you feel good around them or are they draining you of your vital life giving energy. See, you become who you associate with. I want to be a better person. When I am around people who are uplifting, positive, and responsible, I’m uplifted. Being around people who are being reactive, and playing the victim, is not healthy. The great thing is you can choose who you want to be around. I choose to inspire others so I hang with those same people. Choose wisely!
