Seek and Find

by B.C. Raines on 02/26/20

Are you aware that what you look for is exactly what you will find? For example, if you are always focused on what you don’t have, that’s all you’ll ever see…what you don’t have. You’ll possibly misuse and not even appreciate what you do have.

If you can’t see (imagine) how something will work, then it won’t. You’ll even miss the opportunities to make it work and the miracles in your life.

If you only see that you’re alone in life, then you won’t even notice the people who are with you, who care for you, about you; those who sacrifice for you. You’ll most likely also mistreat these very same people.

What are you seeking? Be careful, you just may find it!

Live Now: Take 2

by B.C. Raines on 02/20/20

I posted something similar to this back in October 2019 but I have to post this inspiration again. In the past six months, I will have attended three memorial services for three young adults: two who were not yet 40 years old and one who did not reach 50. Sisters, PLEASE live now! Encourage your loved ones to live now!

Life as we know it can change or end abruptly with little or no notice…Live now!

  • Love on your family…now!
  • Tell them you love them…now!
  • Show them you love them…now!
  • Enjoy life…now!
  • Pursue your dreams…now!
  • Give…now!
  • Forgive…now!
  • Encourage someone else…now!
  • Live…now!

Love You

by B.C. Raines on 02/13/20

Sisters, you know as women, we nurture and take really good care of everyone; everyone, that is, except ourselves. We generally pour so much into everyone else around us that we have absolutely nothing left to give to ourselves. Today’s post is just a simple reminder: be intentional about loving you. Make it a priority. Be creative with how you love you. Schedule it. No one can love you better than you can love you.

Now What?

by B.C. Raines on 02/05/20

You failed miserably. It was a huge mistake. Things just didn’t turn out the way you planned. Ever been there? Yeah, I have been there, too… actually, a time or two or three or four...

Now what?

Okay, the pregnancy wasn’t planned. The relationship failed. The people you trusted most betrayed you.

Now what?

You lied and now the lie has been exposed. You lost your only source of income. Your best friend is no longer on this Earth.

Now what?

How do I bounce back from this one, you now ask? How can I move forward? This went waaay too far this time. I’ll never recover from this.

Now what?

My suggestion: Take the next step. Make the next move. Think the next thought. For some of us that may simply be just getting out of bed. Take it! For others, it may be as complex as developing a business plan. Make the move!

Whatever your Now What?  Just move forward or step up!

Give Them Their Flowers Now

by B.C. Raines on 01/30/20

Give me my flowers now!

Have you ever heard that saying?  I grew up hearing it and had a pretty good grasp at its meaning. However, I have to tell you that the older I become, the better I grasp this saying’s meaning.

Here’s my take: Honor people while they are living here on Earth. How do you do that? Buy lots of flowers and give them away? You could but try these too: Say thank you. Speak kind words. Encourage others. Say “I love you” to your loved ones. Congratulate others regarding their successes. Give a smile when passing by on the sidewalk. Give a compliment. Just call to say ‘Hi’. Send a pleasant note.

Always remember…Sister U Matter!®
