KEYS101: Time. Use your time in the best way you can” Colossians 4:5

Time is our most precious resource. It’s far more important than money. We can get more money, but you can’t get more time. We only have a certain amount allotted to us in this life. We can’t make time, we can’t borrow time, we can’t save time, we can’t extend time. We can only use it. We all have the same amount of time every week: 168 hours. If we don’t learn to manage our time well, we cannot manage anything else in our life, because our time is our life.

God is watching to see how we manage our time on this earth to determine what he’s going to have us do in eternity. He’s giving us a test, because our life on Earth is preparation for eternity. One of Satan’s strategies is to get us so busy doing unimportant things that we don’t have time for the important things in life, and we don’t spend any time preparing for eternity. Satan doesn’t have to get us to sin. If he can’t get us to be bad, he’ll just get us to be busy.

I’m working on this everyday.

Prioritizing. And, simplifying.

I need to simplify my life and eliminate distractions, so God can use me. Don’t try to do it all. Do what matters most!

Peace & Blessings,

AK

Out with the “old” in with the “new”

Good Friday life junkies,

KEYS101:If you want to have lasting change in your life, you have to start with your body, and that includes changing the way you think so that what you let into your mind and the things you think about honor and acknowledge a power higher than you.

“Put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and … put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness”. Ephesians 4:22-24

Notice that there’s a putting off and a putting on. Your health really comes down to stopping some stuff you need to stop doing and starting some stuff you need to start doing. Stop putting negative, hurtful things in your body, and start putting in things that edify.

Stop putting negative, hurtful things into your mind, and start watching and listening to things that edify and make you whole. In the renewal of your mind, you’ve got to put off before you can put on.

Let’s say you go shopping (I thought this was perfect) to look for a new pair of jeans. You find them and take them into one of those tight changing rooms. If you’re wearing a pair of jeans already, you don’t go in there and put the new jeans on over your old jeans. That would be stupid, because you’re not going to know if they fit. It makes sense to take off the old ones before you put on the new ones.

You’ve got to take off the old before you can put on the new. That’s true spiritually and emotionally and mentally.

I’m working on this myself. We all are “works in progress”! And, if not start now. Spring is a time of “REBIRTH”….

xoxo,

AK

Happy New Year my life junkies! I pray for peace and blessings to be bestowed upon each of you this year and years to come.

KEYS101: Are we ready for 2016?

How many times have you thought you were ready for something, but you really weren’t? Oh wait, maybe that’s just me. Often times we think we are ready for that job, the business, the relationship, the new purchase, and the list goes on. When that very thing we thought we were ready for doesn’t pan out, we get discouraged, we, at times, lose hope.

Sometimes we don’t get what’s for us because we are still going through the “process”. Can you imagine getting what’s for you at the wrong time? For example, you want to start a business, well there are certain skills and knowledge you need to start that business. You have to experience highs and lows in your career, difficult bosses, difficult co-workers, various challenges, etc. Why? Because those experiences “mold” you into the business owner you are supposed to be.

You want that financial breakthrough, but it just doesn’t seem to be coming as quickly as you want. Perhaps the reason is because if you got that financial breakthrough, you wouldn’t handle it properly. We see it all the time with people who win the lottery and a year or so later, they are broke, or an athlete who makes millions, and ends up in bankruptcy. They weren’t really ready for it. When you are ready for it, it won’t be a “fleeting” thing, it will be a “lasting” thing.

Okay, here’s another example. You may be someone who has had several relationships, perhaps even a marriage, that didn’t work out or maybe you haven’t experienced many relationships, but you are ready to meet that person you can spend the rest of your life with. You think you are ready, but in fact, you aren’t. Those other relationships help you develop, help you grow, help you better understand you, help you better understand relationships, and when you have gotten what you were supposed to have gotten (in other words, learned what you were supposed to have learned), it will come. There are a lot of people in relationships carrying around unresolved issues, past hurts, pains, resentment, bitterness, confusion, and even a lack of self-love. Those things will destroy a relationship. So although you think you’re ready, you’re not. Timing is everything. When you’re really ready for it, it will come. Learn to appreciate the process.

Hello Life junkies!

KEYS101: We will all be hurt in this life. Many times we’ll be hurt intentionally by what people say about us or what people do to us. In fact, any time we read the word “forgiveness” we instantly call to mind certain heartaches, hurts, and problems from our past. The memories are still fresh because we’ve been hurt very deeply.

Because of how deeply we’ve been hurt, it’s hard to consider forgiving the perpetrators.

The converse is also true. If you don’t feel forgiven, you’ll have a hard time forgiving others. If you typically have a tough time forgiving others, you may not truly feel forgiven yourself.

Remember this: No matter what anyone does to you, you’ll never have to forgive any other person more than God has already forgiven you.

xoxo,

AK

P.S. Check out my online store…crazechameleonstudio.bigcartel.com

I’m not done with the store but, I’m not sure if I’ll ever be truly done- there’s always things to add, models to fit, sourcing to do, life’s highs and lows. I figure as long as I have a “to do list” I’ll never truly be through. I’m just proud of myself for starting the process.

Launch party and trunk show 2016. Keep pushing on even when you can’t see the light! I do. Everything is going to be just fine as long as you have faith in your higher power💋

Carpe Diem

Keys101: Each of us have a variety of great abilities. For some of us it’s the ability to do algebra (well), fix stuff, or to design. We all have abilities — even if at times we need others to point them out to us.

But do you know what your greatest ability is? Responsibility.

Responsibility is your ability to respond to life. It’s what makes us human — and it’s a gift from God. Much of our lives haven’t been in our control. We didn’t choose where we were born. We didn’t choose who our parents would be. We didn’t choose how our parents would raise us. We didn’t choose the bad ass gifts and talents we brought into the world.

Responsibility is how you handle everything else. How we respond to what life throws at us impacts our lives more than any other factor. In fact, in many ways, life is a test of how we handle responsibility. We spend only a fraction of our lives on this side of existence. God doesn’t care about our achievements while we’re here on this earth (like others do, including ourselves) He cares about our character not how many coins or designer items we have.

Our lives today are dress rehearsals for what’s to come.  We are put you on this earth primarily for two reasons- to know God personally and to develop character.

For decades, we’ve seen a decrease in responsibility throughout our culture. Many in our world live by the motto: “I’m not responsible for anything. It’s not my fault. What does that have to do with me.”

Responsible people make the most of the life they’ve been given. I’m doing my best. And, I’m pushing myself to be and do better. What is one area of your life — such as finances, parenting, relationships, etc. — where you feel you could be more responsible? I have a list. Make your list and be honest with it to yourself.

Happy growing and happy knowing.

AK
