Fruit & Spring

Happy first day of SPRING!

I am going to enjoy the beautiful day with a nice walk and relax!! 
Spring is the BEST time to eat some of the BEST fruit, and in life, we all yield fruit, but what kind is the question: 


These are all some of my favorite fruits that we yield in life. HOW do we yield fruit you may ask? I am a person not a tree. But we plant seeds everyday. We plant seeds in our minds with all we read, see and hear. We plant seeds in our hearts with what we believe, what we accept to be true and what we meditate on. And we plant seeds all around us in others whether we know it or not. 

Want JOY? Plant seeds of joy. 
Want results? Plant seeds of hard work. 
Want LOVE in your life? Show love to someone else. 

Want discipline? Plant what you want to harvest. Water it, watch it grow. Want something? Plant it, cultivate it, INTENTIONALLY so or you will never get what it is you seek! 
I LOVE Fruit, but these are my favorite fruits in life!!

 Discipline has been one for me that I have had to plant, water, put a fence around, fertilize and watch. If I can be disciplined in my faith walk and in my fitness and food--ANYONE can!! The real success is in the kitchen! Whether it's shedding pounds, wanting to see those abs come out, lowering blood pressure, having more energy, SO much of our success relies on our success in the kitchen and that is a hurdle of discipline. 

I am less than 2 weeks out from my first show and I am SO thankful to MACK for reminding me this is my first show, not my last. Its the start of my path, not my finish line! I am dialing into that discipline!! 

"All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness."
Hebrews 12:11
