Oh my God, I’m thirty (one)

G’day folks. Happy Monday we’ve made it one more week into this gift called life.

A had one heck of a wake up call last week. I was chomping down on some my favorite snicky snacks and bam a part of my tooth chipped off. And it wasn’t even a hard snack I think it might have been a freaking marshmallow.

I was freaking the freak out. I called my husband, the realist, and asked him why is this happening! He politely reminded me that we are getting older and that its all downhill from the this point. 

It’s true, my body has been quitting on me left and right. The next day I woke up with a large knot in my back that would not go away. I had to rub my own back (in this economy) up against a wall for a massage.

And then next day my legs gave out and were weak from just WALKING! Not even running just walking in a straight line in the park. By the time the weekend came I felt like (and looked) Quasimodo from Notre Dame.

Not sure what happens to body when you turn thirty, but I think the main thing I’ve realized about aging is that if you want feel healthy you have to work for it.

Gone are the days you can pull an all nighter and then sleep it off for a hour. Naw girl bye. We need a full 8 hours or there will be hell to pay the next day.

And that’s pretty much life nowadays right? When we were young, it was a little easier for some of us in different aspects of our lives (finances, school, exercise etc.) Guess what?  Those days are over y’all!

In my thirties, I feel like I have to fight to get anything done.I have to extra work hard for everything whether it’s a better body, starting a business or achieving my goals.

But I also have realized when you reach a certain age, you see more clearly that your time on this earth is limited. So while I am physically able I HAVE to do the work NOW!

I once heard a pastor preach from the moment you’re born you are dying as you get older. Although at first, it was weird to hear him preach that word but eventually his message became clearer to me and I saw that his message was true. Aging is just the dying of cells in our bodies. As more cells die, we grow older.

So essentially once you are born, its pretty much over from the start. We only get one life to live. One ride on this rodeo. And I’m going to make sure each day I make the most of it and make every minute count.

I pretty much say this on my blog every week, excuse me  while l  speak things into existence.
If you have dreams and goals, #dontwait get started because we don’t have much time.

My biggest fear isn’t failing at my goals, but getting older and looking back realizing that I wasted my life not even trying to reach my goals.

So let my body breakdown of last weekend serve as a reminder, the clock is ticking. If there’s something you want to do in life, DO IT NOW! Don’t waste your time worrying, use your time wisely and make every minute count.

I’m done preaching y’all. Let the church doors open and please put your offering in the bucket if you came in late! Enjoy.

Monday Motivation: Trust and Believe.

Good Morning America! I have to tell you about my amazing weekend! I hate to sound to like I’m bragging but it was so awesome I had to share.

I’ve been slowly but surely (barely P.O.P holding it down) starting a closet organization and personal shopping business. This weekend kicked off my very first closet organization session and it went surprisingly well.

you-are-so-mean
Why you gotta be so rude…

But for some weird reason, I was so incredibly nervous as I began working on my client’s closet. I kept hearing a nagging little voice in my head questioning every move I made. What are you doing?  Do you even know what you are doing?  Are you even good at this? You sound like an idiot (Well aren’t you the rudest little voice ever?).

As the hours flew by, I started to feel more and more comfortable with my work and the process overall. All those nagging voices started to disappear and be pushed out by God’s voice telling me “This is what you were meant to do, this is your gift, helping people”. “Take comfort in knowing THAT this is your destiny” (Well okayyyyyyy God, I hear you).

I know that sounds like I’m trying to sound deep, spiritual and rose colored lense-like, but it was the truth. His words begin to give me the deepest sense of relief and peace that I desperately needed.

At the end 2013, I quit my job to stay at home with my lovely toddlers and start this business. Following that decision, although my family was much happier, it seemed like our finances started to fall apart. 2014 became one of the worst years financially our family has had in a long time. I constantly questioned my decision of leaving my job everyday.

This year however, as things everyday come together piece by piece, I now finally get it. I understand everything my family went through to get to this moment. Working towards my purpose was not easy, but when I arrived I immediately felt all the pieces fall into place.

As I finished bagging up old clothes and reasoning with my client why it was time to throw things away, for the first time in my life I could tell myself that “You were meant to do this” and actually I BELIEVED it was the truth.

So yes what an ahmazing feeling it is when Belief, Purpose and Peace all come together and fall into place in our lives. I just had to share my story for those of you who might be starting a business, quitting your job or any other type of risk like myself. Trust God, don’t worry and know that you will see the purpose in the struggle you may face right now.

Yaaaassssssssssss!

Not sure why I’m preaching (#churchflow) on my blog this morning but just wanted you guys to know all the pieces will eventually fall into place for you, even if you can’t see it happening.

There’s an instaquote that says, “Work Hard, Stay Sweet, Trust God, Love Deep”. I’m not sure who wrote this, but I feel you my sister (or brother). All you can do is TRUST and BELIEVE and peace will follow.

Now get out there everyone and do your work! Enjoy.

Good Morning, it’s your dreams calling on line one.

Happy “you made through another week” day! These past few weeks have been truly kicking me in the face. I wake up everyday feeling like Panama City Beach Spring break minus the flat stomach and sand in my arse.

Have you seen this woman? Cause I haven’t in 10 years.

Monday is here and it’s always the day I tell myself that this week is going to be different.  I’m going to reset my life, get this blog going, make fancy breakfasts and exercise. By Thursday, I’m face deep in two glasses of wine and a box of peeps (don’t judge my journey).

This morning however,  I woke up with a different perspective for something reason, but I’m so glad. The hardest thing I have to do is write down a couple of feelings, posts a few outfits and organize a few closets. How hard is that really Jessica Yvette Gautier (Its serious if you say your whole name)? It’s not anywhere as difficult as what other moms around the world have to face each day.

So it got me to thinking, what’s the problem?  Why is so hard for me to get motivated for the week and get off my butt and start a damn business?

The answer is that I think too much. I dream too much. There’s a quote that says, “The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up”.

Well damn. Yous was right Paul Valery. Sometimes I find myself dreaming so much about all the things I want to do, that I never ACT on them.

But that ends today! It’s already March! We have 9 months left to make 2015 the best year ever!
So this morning, now that you’ve woke up like dis, WAKE UP! Stop complaining about your current situation and make something happen.

Maybe you want to open a store on Etsy, lose that last 10lbs or get a promotion. The only way these things will come to fruition is by starting somewhere!

This blog post may be random and  but this is how I’m forcing myself to start somewhere. I hope you guys take whatever dreams you’ve been dreaming about, wake up and take action too. Enjoy.
