A New You In 60 Seconds:





by Precious Quire-McCloud



Dear Friend,
Thank you for the opportunity to share with you.  I am grateful for your support and overjoyed by your plight to "preserve your happy"!  The "A New You In 60 Seconds" series by UBU is designed to enrich your life from the inside out!  Thank you for sharing a minute of your time with me.  [1-2-3...] 

Sometimes, you just need to take a life lesson for what it's worth.  No analyzing, no self-loathing, no regrets or wishing things were different.  Just accepting and trusting that no matter how the lesson is dished out or served, it is tailor-made just for you.  And since it's for you, certain things are crafted with you in mind and certain people are supposed to play a part.  Even when you are uncertain of the role they're meant to play, recognize first and foremost that they have value and they are important to your journey...then coast with them in harmony.

Sometimes, you need to be okay with the hand you're dealt.  It's yours so own everything about it.  Play your hand with confidence and know that no matter what others have, yours is undoubtedly a winning hand.  You have what it takes and are already equipped with everything you need to prosper, overcome and win! Spending your precious time wishing for mo' better could be an exercise in futility and produce nothing more than an endless loop of ungrateful unrest.  To those who are never satisfied with what they have, mo' better never, ever, ever comes and usually leads to mo' drama, mo' strife and mo' bitterness.

Sometimes, when people want to love you, let them.  When they want to show you that they care, embrace them.  When they want to help, step aside and allow them to bless you.  By allowing others to sow positively into your life (by any measure) you ignite the law of reciprocity.  The next time you find yourself wanting to love, care for and help someone, you'll appreciate the acceptance of your gifts.

Sometimes, regardless of how you feel, you need to sit back and just be thankful for the good things in your life.  Things may not be perfect, but God never said they would be - there's no need to be caught off guard by adversity.  What He did say is that He will be with you always.  He says He has a specific plan for you and that plan is to prosper you and to give you hope and a good future.  What is life without hope? What is 'today' without a  little excitement for the joy that 'tomorrow' brings?  Stop trying to figure things out - it's not a part of your job description.  Simply receive God's promises, accept His timing and live your life like the blessing it was created to be. 


Even when weeping endures, the sun is still shining somewhere and it's only a matter of time before its rays warm your life...again.  Today's valleys are no match for yesterday and tomorrow's mountaintop so dance in that valley and faint not!  Close your eyes and imagine yourself as your best self!  Separate yourself from chaos and strife.  See yourself free - you already are!!!


God's plan for you is greater than anything you can imagine!  He has you covered in grace, mercy and love always!  You are a chosen vessel and when you tap into His flow, the possibilities are endless!



A Note From Precious...
One thing I've learned about positive change is that it doesn't have to "take all day".  All that's required to do and be better is a made-up mind.   I'm offering the "A New You In 60 Seconds" series as a practical catalyst for positive life changes.  UBU (pronounced "You Be You") was birthed in me in 1999 as I sought to understand certain complexities regarding how women relate to one another.  I wanted to find out what was at the root of the discord and natural tendencies to be unloving, unsupportive, quick to take offense and slow to forgive. What I discovered is that how we relate to others is directly linked to how we relate to ourselves.   
UBU promotes joyful living, authenticity and harmony with others through the gift of valuing oneself.  I've committed the past 12 years of my life to UBU's ideals and have worked actively to encourage and inspire women to embrace the freedom and joy that is our birthright!  Our choice to be free...sets us free.
In the vineyard,

Dear Lord, thank You for creating me in Your wonderful image.  I accept the plan You have for me and I repent for complaining about parts of my journey.  As I trust you more and learn to cast ALL of my cares upon You, I grow in my understanding that my experiences are all designed for my good; regardless of how I 'feel' about them.  I relinquish my limited thinking and trust You wholeheartedly.  I am blessed and I want to walk out what you purposed for my life.  I want to make you proud of me.  I surrender all to You.  Thank you Father, for making everything okay.
