If this STOP acronym was applied in everyday situations things would be different.
When your in a situation , you want to get up , you don’t like it or your not being treated kindly. The first thing you do is .... 🛑 STOP whatever your doing 🤔 THINK about the situation OPTIONS- consider your options ( are you gonna be kind? How are you gonna respond to make the situation calm?) PROCEED with the right choice A RIGHT CHOICE WILL NOT HURT YOURSELF, OTHERS , and the ENVIRONMENT.
Inevitably, the choices we make reflect a part of us. This weekend I'd like you to take a challenge with me - to not make choices out of fear.
If you come to a fork in the road and you are tempted to act out of fear but choose the latter - I would love to hear about it in the comments below! It encourages me and others when we share our experiences. If you are stuck making choices out of fear - PM me or comment, I'd love to help you through it. Lets work together to get out of the rut. Shine light on the areas that hold us back from living.
Hope is a powerful and positive thing - lets try operating in it this weekend.

The people that we associate with regularly have a direct effect on our level of progress. They can either push and inspire us to "level up" or they can drag us backwards. .
Be leary of associates whose conversations revolve around what happened in the past. If they start conversations with "did you hear what she DID..." then, just know that they want to drag you backwards. .
Look for that friend who is making progress, dreaming big, improving him or herself; who is connected to God, praying regularly, feeding herself with positivity, reading and developing consistently. That is the person you need to spend more time with. Trust me, their good habits and greatness will rub off on you and make you a better person!
Prov. 27:17 in the message Bible says, "You use steel to sharpen steel, and one friend sharpens another."
People only associate with weak minded, stagnant people when they are unsure of their own level and content. Discover who you are in Christ and build with builders. It is time to shake that inferiority and recognize who you are and what you are worth.
My prayer for you is that God will give you at least one very good friend that makes you up your game.
Are you trying to build lean muscle or burn fat? Do you have a hard time eating 5-6 (quality) meals and snacks during the day? Do you forget to pick meals for work?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, then this product is for you. @1stphorm#level1 Protein is what you need!
It produces the highest quality whey on the market. It’s a sustained assimilation protein blend (whey isolate AND concentrate), that’s low temperature processed, cross-flow micro-filtrated, and comes in a variety of mouth watering flavors.
What does that mean? It means you’re protein hasn’t been denatured by high temperatures and is readily available for your body to break down and absorb.
SO, if your looking to burn fat, build muscle, need an extra meal, or snack... grab a shaker bottle and mix up some Level-1. It’s quick, easy, and keeps you from crashing in to a catabolic state where you’re storing fat (that you probably want to get rid of) and burning muscle (that you’ve worked hard for) for energy.
Have questions about level-1, nutrition, or dieting? Send me a message or comment below.

It is said to be careful of your thoughts because your life is shaped by them. And you get back what you put out. If you believe this has merit do you take time each day to truly listen to what you say to yourself? Did you know you can change your habits in thinking? Follow my blog at freshlifeconnection.com
I am not an advocate for violence. I am not an advocate for gun control. But I do believe what Mr.Jackson says is true. I offer my condolences and prayers to the families devastated by this horrific tragedy. Yet, even as the students, and nation, now so well-rehearsed in violence and death leans toward gun control. I don't believe we should stand alongside them in this way. I am not a gun fanatic, but I do believe that if we were to have assault weapons banned, we would face a never-ending spiral of weapons bans that would, in the end, inevitably, leave us defenseless. Now, it isn't entirely logical that an average citizen have a assault weapon. However, despite this, these men and women have every right as given by our founding fathers to own that weapon.
When we go to trial a man stands before the court, not a gun. We don't incarcerate hunks of metal and plastic for being used for nefarious deed. No, we instead take the criminal, the killer behind the gun and try him. Therefore, it only stands to reason that it is the man behind the gun and not the gun itself that is causing such tragedies. The sickness, the darkness within him brings him to take life, not the bullets. The gun is the means of his destruction, but not the cause of it.
As said above, when we stoop to banning guns or bullets, we may find ourselves not with less killers, but with more precise ones. They will adapt.
To conclude, there are a plethora of reasons to refuse allowing gun control. However, we should all strive to take action to prevent these weapons from falling into the hands of these men. It is our duty as American citizens to care for and protect one another. Through the second amendment, we protect not only ourselves, but others. We must understand our rights and know not to abuse them. We must hold ourselves accountable to be observant and ready, and so that we may also understand the incredible value of life itself.
