Potatoes, Eggs, or Coffee? Which would you rather be?

Hey family! If you have never heard of this inspiring story, let me share it today with you. We have all felt challenges in our life, pain, trauma, and sometimes where there seems to be no ‘light at the end of the tunnel’. This story helps to really shift your perspective on the choices in how you will OVERCOME and PERSEVERE. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do 😉

Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.

Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot, and ground coffee beans in the third pot.

He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing.

After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the boiled eggs out and placed them in a bowl.

He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup. Turning to her he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?”

“Potatoes, eggs, and coffee,” she hastily replied.

“Look closer,” he said, “and touch the potatoes.” She did and noted that they were soft. He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.

“Father, what does this mean?” she asked.

He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity– the boiling water.

However, each one reacted differently.

The potato went in strong, hard, and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak.

The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard.

However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.

So….. who are you or who would you rather be? It’s hard to imagine that we really DO have choices with how we respond in the face of adversity or when trials are knocking on your doorstep. The truth is though, just like the potato, you can choose to fold and completely weaken you, you can choose to be like the egg and go through life hardened by your experiences, or you can be the coffee and use your experience to change your life and those around you into something magical and beautiful.

Closed For Spiritual Maintenance

Sometimes when you feel you have lost your way, you are really getting back on your path. Sometimes when you feel uninspired, it’s actually because God is working on you. Sometimes when you feel like things are falling apart they are actually falling together. Sometimes when you feel like you don’t know the direction of your life, it’s because God is speaking to you and you need to listen. 

I have been in this place over the past few months where God has been working in my life in a deep way. If I were really honest, since leaving Idaho and moving to the South I feel as though my life has been in some sort of ‘holding position’ in a weird kind of way. As though I have been in an incubator, and that I can do only so much but it’s not my time to bust completely out of what is really meant for my life. The best way I can describe it is like you have the greatest pair of running shoes, and you know you are a fast runner, but your legs won’t get to full speed. You get on the track only to find your legs will only allow you to jog and not to bust out into a full on sprint! YET you can feel it right there. Anytime it’s going to happen…..  Continue reading “Closed For Spiritual Maintenance”

Faith, Patience, and Perseverance

Today in my meditation and prayer time I received words, and then to pull up my email and again, see that God is speaking to me through Joel, so I will share that message too.
Today, the message I received was around patience, perseverance and faith. Sometimes what is needed is to wait on things, because there are some unfinished things that God is working on. This means patience (which is not a strength of mine) and perseverance, and definitely requires faith. When we are planting a new harvest, we have to sow the dirt. We have to really dig it up to get the dirt filled with the right nutrients and make sure it’s hydrated and ready for the crop. If we plant when the dirt is hard and isn’t ready, it will show in the fruit that we bear.

I say no to gatekeepers, gurus, drama-trauma, and victim mentality!

I woke this morning in Miami on my trip back from Zurich, and I felt as though Jesus was next to me, I was sharing with him about what and how I have limited myself my whole life. All self inflicted of course, and I was reflecting on all of this over breakfast.
So I want to share the message with you that I felt today for myself, and then to open my email and see my brother Joel speaking of it today as well is too cool for school so I have to share that as well!
 
My message for today is that no matter what you think are your barriers are only there until you ‘see’ and accept that they really are not.
Somehow we create things to help us stay feeling safe inside of our comfort zone. And to be quite honest, I don’t think there is anything wrong with that so to say, as this life is for our choosing on what makes us happy or if we find it cool to be in victim mode, no judgment.

You have the power to change the world

You may be thinking to yourself, yea right Je, you have the power to change the world is so cliche’….

I really DO THINK and feel this to the core of me.

We all have that power. 

To change the world doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to do anything BIG or GRAND, YET, I do believe that within each one of us IS that big or grand ‘thing’ that no one else can do. It’s when we know our own wiring and how God has built us and we utilize and activate that person, IS when the world will change. 

Don’t ever second guess your quirkiness or what makes up who you are! Because YOU ARE perfect just as you are, I know you hear me say that a lot, and please get used to it because I am your guide here on earth to remind you of just that. Below is the live stream video from yesterday, watch it AND know that you are so loved!

You are stronger than you think

It’s been a while since I have written a blog post! WOW! It’s MARCH already and I have no idea how it got here! Omgosh have I had some massive changes in the last few months! Just when you think your biggest transformation is in the past, BOOM! Another huge shift! Has that happened to you?

If you would have asked me in December how I was doing, I wouldn’t have known how to answer you! Too many things shifting too quick that I felt as though I was free falling out of an airplane with no parachute! First, my business partner and I decided our work together for the incredible creations we did had fizzled to an end. We both felt good about the change, YET, it is change, right? I don’t know about you, but change isn’t always easy because of the ‘unknown’.

Dare to Adventure

Sister, I hope you are finishing off the year with an exciting escape of adventures! I have been invited to take a trip to Mexico City and I am more nervous than excited. I’ve been recovering from my health and surgeries I’ve had from the past year that traveling seems complicated. Traveling doesn’t seem easy to me like it did once before. I’ve been feeling excited, but the back of my head I can’t seem to shake off the feeling of fear. Nervousness starts to creep up and I’m doubting I’ll go. “Will I be okay?” “Will I get sick” “what if I have pain” just ridiculous thoughts flowing through my head. I’m still learning about my body and what things I can do and can’t do. My health has changed tremendously since being a teen. And there’s nothing more I could wish for but to feel normal again.
