Good Morning ITT girls & Co., happy last day of August 2017! Wow...time really does fly by when you're having fun (it also flies by when you're not, but yeah...lol). I totally keep thinking that today is Friday...clearly my mind is a million miles away (or approx. 1,064.6-ish). Warning - this post may or may not contain "a Secret Message" (cough, cough).

Good Morning ITT girls & Co.! Project of the Day = Admin work. Yeah!!! [does "a Happy Dance"] ;) I've been getting lots 'o' Goals accomplished on a particular Project. Now, unfortunately you know what that means... =( Distractions, discouragements, frustrations, exhaustions, etc. etc. here you come. =/

I know it sounds pessimistic. But it's true. You know it is. But if you don't yet, hang around kiddies, you will, you'll have your time. ;) Sooooooo, reminding myself ahead of time...

Spotlight Bible verse = "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I [Jesus Christ] have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
(John 10:10, NIV)

It's Church Night. ;)

Spotlight Bible verse = "Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to Your name be the glory, because of Your love and faithfulness."
(Psalm 115:1, NIV)

@ 9:02 PM
So, I came out of my Semi-Private Grocery Store (see the 7.17.2017 entry, lol) & it had become a very blustery day. Oh hey, that means that it's technically "Winds-day" like for real... (Bonus Points to those who get that, smile) Like for reals though, I was seriously afraid I would blow away... [runs to vehicle screaming, thinks she can feel herself becoming slightly airborne]

Good Morning ITT girls & Co.! Project of the Day = Admin work.

@ 5:33 PM
Sooooooo, I was informed today of a very lucrative (not in a "bad" way, just meaning that I could accomplish this with my eyes closed & "make quick & easy money") Business Opportunity. I was tempted. Very tempted to partake. In my mind, I started to mentally take the pieces of my Business Plan & move them around like a puzzle, trying to figure out how I could successfully "include", "fit into", [insert other sugarcoated words]...

The Conclusion = I could do it, but my sanity in the long-run would suffer.
#1 - Over time, I would definitely get distracted from my Main Business Goals.
#2 - The pace that I like to live my Daily Lifestyle would have to drastically change. My Lifestyle would have to serve the Business, rather than the Business serving my Lifestyle.

Hum... Well, you know me (lol) I always like to have some sort of "practical take-away point" when I can... Sooooooo, I would say that the Lesson here folks, is to always put your unique Mental Health first in Small Business. If you know that something/some scenario is going to in the long-run cause you strife, politely decline. ;)

@ 6:30 PM
Spotlight Bible verse = [Jesus said,] "Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it? For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him, saying, 'This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.' "
(Luke 14:28-30, NIV)


MONDAY 8.21.2017

@ 1:31 PM
Good Afternoon ITT girls & Co.! I luv how mostly everyone is into The Solar Eclipse today. ;)

Spotlight Bible verse = "When I [King David] consider Your [God] heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, what is man that You are mindful of him, the son of man that You care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler over the works of Your hands; You put everything under his feet"
(Psalm 8:3-6, NIV)

Project of the Day = Admin work.

@ 6:22 PM
Music to my ears = "We went to [insert Name of fav locale here] & knew you'd want us to bring you a Mac & Cheese."
Me: [gasps] =o "Wow... I feel so loved & appreciated!" (lol)

@ 10:45 AM
Happy Sunday ITT girls & Co., have a good day at Church Service! ;)

Spotlight Bible verse = "To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice."
(Proverbs 21:3, NIV)

@ 2:03 PM
Church Service Personal Styling Tip = On days like today, when I am super sleepy b/c I may or may not have stayed up too late Fangirling... [looks off to the side suspiciously] every second of "extra sleep" before I have to get up is a must. (yawn...) So, in terms of Outfit Styling, I like to keep things uber comfortable, yet still looking upscale. That being said, my go-to ensemble = a glam Tunic + "Skinny Cut" Slacks + glossy Heels. Then this Bedtime Bear still feels like she's in her PJs (and yes, I wear heels around the home... but that's another story for another time, lol).

Related Article = Coming Soon... ;)

@ 8:27 PM
Sunday Dinner = enjoyed a delish Black Forest Turkey Panini (one of my favs, smile), getting caught up on a fav Drama Series, & good convo. ;)

Related Article = Coming Soon... ;)

Spotlight Bible verse = "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
(2 Corinthians 4:18, NIV)


SUNDAY 8.6.2017

@ 3:55 AM
Good Morning & Happy Sunday ITT girls & Co.! So, I took a well needed Nap & then I've just been up pondering the mysteries of life...my life at least. ;)

So yeah, my mind went to a particular situation (cough cough, lol) that I am truly dedicated to getting "closure" around. But yeah, I'm not going to get into specific details b/c too many IRL people read my Web Site & it would be too easy to put 1 + 1 together & = The Involved Parties & yeah, I'm not about "outing" anybody. #RunOnSentence [chants to self] "Grace and mercy Ruth, grace and mercy..."

So yeah, long Story (a v-e-r-y long story...) short, it's a Classic Tale of abuse of Power & taking advantage of ones naivety. Is that vague enough??? (lol)

A few things that I have personally learned from experiencing this ordeal (BTW, thank you for letting me share, #FreeTherapy) is that #1 - You are never "the only one" that they are bullying. It may seem like it from your current perspective, but 'if the walls could talk' (as the popular saying goes), you'd see that this is "a pattern of behavior" for them. So try to never take it personally, you're just Today's Featured Presentation. =/

When you realize that, then you can #2 - Walk away with your head held high. Usually though, that means that you're no longer going to "be a part of" whatever subculture. That's hard. Especially when you didn't see it coming. #NaiveProblems =/

I could write a whole Book on this next point, but #3 - Don't let it "break you" to the point of inactivity & being unproductive. Seriously, that's what it's designed for... B/c lets be real, the clown(s) are j-e-a-l-o-u-s. You "threaten" their little robotic, bland way of doing things/thinking. Sigh... but like I said, this is a whole 'nother Thesis. ;) #KeepMovingForward

Last point (thanks for sticking with me, smile), #4 - GOD IS SO FAITHFUL! Seriously, I could write another another Book on this one. ;) Personally, I've found that although it's very hard "to get over" & seriously ITT girls & Co., I'm still traumatized from this particular situation (if you couldn't already tell, lol) like for reals... =/ #SensitiveProblems

But yeah, I have found that when you truly let go with tears in your eyes, a trembling lip, & a hurt heart, BETTER is always lingering closer than you think! ;) It's gonna take a while to see it, but just like the mess hit you when you least expected it, God will shower your life, mind, & heart with your blessing(s) when you least expect it (or in our case, ITT, lol couldn't resist).

Let's continue to stay strong my loves. ;)

FRIDAY 8.4.2017

@ 8:20 AM
Good Morning ITT girls & Co.! Inquiries have been coming in regarding what my Personal Routine(s) are for "Fitness" & "Working Out". So, I will be sharing that this Month. ;)

Ok, so first off, for me personally, I've never been into all of that fancy schmancy hard core buff Workout stuff. Kudos to those of you that are, that's awesome & a real gift. Keep doing you. ;) For me, I like to keep things simple, "easy", & fun (we will get into specifics throughout the Month). ;)

In terms of Body Goals, I like to have a "soft", "smooth", & "feminine" look. Side Note - puh-lease don't give me grief over my use of the word "feminine" ... you know what I mean. =/ So yeah, defined muscles & chiseled abs & stuff like that just isn't my thing. Oh, I'm sorry, what was that??? I thought I heard a question coming from the Back Row... "But Ruth," [said in a semi-mocking tone] "what about on Guys, huh???" Ah, I'm glad you asked that question, thank you. Yeah, for me it's the same deal, personally just never been into "muscle guys". But if that's your jam, go for it girl. ;) "Fit" & "healthy" is good for me, whatever that means for you & your unique "Body Type" (which we will also get into this Month).

Sooooooo, today's Ruth's Personal Workout Nugget of Truth = wear Ruby Red Lipstick. ;)
