Life Principles I Learned From My Mother #6: Just Because Someone Else Experienced It Doesn’t Mean You Have To

Naturally, we want to belong and fit in.  But, God made us to reflect His nature individually and together.  Our birth justified our existence to be here and add flavor to the world.

You don’t have to do anything that doesn’t resonate with the truth within you.  And, you don’t have to suffer because someone has.  You don’t have to experience heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or other health conditions. For example, on January 8th 2008, I took a non fasting blood test and learned my triglycerides were 250mg/dl. Given that many family members lived with heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, I knew I needed to make some lifestyle changes. By September 3, 2008, my fasting triglycerides was 76mg/dl. And since then, I’ve kept them in the mid to upper 40’s. As you know triglycerides should be less than 150mg/dl.

I share my story to reinforce the misconception that you don’t have to experience what others experienced. Family history doesn’t project your present or future. Instead, you have information to guide your life.

Over the years, my mother would say, you are in control of your life.  So, I’m reminding you that you are in control of your life. Give the questions I ask you considerable thought and listen to the Voice of Truth within you.

Life Principles I Learned From My Mother #19: Take Care of Home First Create A Generational Love Cycle With Timika S Chambers

Hi there, It’s so easy to get caught up in the world and its expectations.  But family is always first.  We don’t need our children looking for love on the outside.  Instead, they will use our standards at home to navigate the world.  We show them how to take care of themselves and set the standards for their family, friends, and others they meet along their journey.  And, our giving to others flows from what we do at home.   Thanks for listening & feel free to let me know your thoughts.

  1. (you are in control of your life) This is a powerful truth, for we do have choices in almost everything. I just ate too much chocolate and nobody told me I had to but me.
