On this FAT TUESDAY, I will………….


Good day.

I ran across this message from one of my most notable motivational speakers, Iyanla Vanzant.

I needed this for my spiritual food of the day perhaps it can left you up as it did for me.



Are you one of those people who is always there when somebody needs you?  You know just what to say, exactly what to do to turn the worst situation into a conquerable challenge.  Everybody calls on you.  Everybody needs you.  You are, after all, strong enough, smart enough, tough enough to make it through anything and everything.  Well, who do the strong go to?  Who do the strong lean on?  Where do the strong go when they are not feeling very strong?   When you set yourself up to be an anchor for everybody else, you jump ship on yourself!  The need to be needed, the illusion that without us things would not get done, is actually the way we escape ourselves.  The strong have needs.  The strong have weaknesses!  Sometimes those needs are so deep and painful that, rather than face them, the strong run away.  When the strong take the weight of the world on their shoulders, they eventually break down.  The question is, Who will be there for the strong?


I take time for me, to do for me the same things I do for others.


From Acts of Faith

by Iyanla Vanzant



I take time for me, to do for me the same things I do for others.

I am working through this exact task as I sit and type today.

It has been a process I started in January and find to be fulfilling yet disenchanting for others.

I say that because when folk around you don’t know your new plan or course of action they feel left out.  Well this ones for me and as soon as my journey is over I will report my findings and accomplishments.

I have been steadily checking off my list of tasks for SELF. I am proud of me.

Today on Fat Tuesday make a decision to do what it is you need do for you. Not your child, man, woman, brother, mother, best friend, lover or another.

Do this for you.  I give you permission.

First, a friend to myself  and all others are next.  I do permit room for cutting in line it’s just my nature.
