A Happy Birthday

I’m 49 today.

49. Y’all…. fort-ee niiiine.

One year shy of half a century and I feel good.

Instead of the birthday song I’m singing with Fred Hammond

¬†“I feel good and I know it… don’t hate me if I show it hey!”

God’s joy on the inside will show up on the outside.

This past year has been a son of a gun.

I thank God to hit this milestone physically fit and healthy, emotionally stable and stronger, and closer in relationship with Him.
This year I underwent intense treatment for my disease to please.
I hung up my Super Woman cape and prioritized time and energy to focus on what really matters.

I’m so thankful and claiming the happiness meant for my life.

Help me celebrate. Savor life (and a perhaps a little sweet treat) with me.

NJ Choose Joy



The song in the video is one of my favs. I Feel Good by Fred Hammond {I don’t own rights to this song.}

3 Steps to Improve Your Consistency

This month I have large goals (family, personal and professional) with limited resources (time, manpower etc).

Can you relate?

Employing the principle of consistency will help make things happen.

If you struggle with consistency, check out this Facebook Live video and print this post – it is a notes page and worksheet.

Facebook Live Notes 

[00:50] Consistency can help us ______________.

[ 1:06] The Bible speaks to consistency.

Pray without ____________. 1 Thessalonians 5:17

The Greek word¬†spoudazo often translated to study in 2 Timothy 2:15 (“study to show thyself approved…”) means be ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†¬†.

[ 1:29]

[02:41]  Your level of consistency points to your level of ________________.

To improve your consistency: 

[ 2:53] 1.  ____________ your self-talk.

We are all consistent in some areas or actions in our lives.  We overcome challenges and barriers because we are committed to that action/cause.

[4:47] We can be consistent in other areas if it is __________________.

[ 5:00] 2. Is the action a  __________ or a ____________.

Sometimes consistency is not possible/probable because the action can not be ___________.

[ 6:50] Find actions that are really ______________ to you and are a ______ for your life.

[ 7:08] 3. ____________ the new action to something you currently do consistently.

[ 7:30] Addictions and __________ are powerful because they drive us to action without thought.

[ 7:47] _______________ the power of habit!

Take Action

What are 5 things I do consistently?



What is the new action I’d like to perform regularly to move me towards my goal?


Is it a fit for my life (i.e. can I do realistically do this regularly)? ¬†I’m talking eryday!

If not, how can it be adjusted or what is something else that I can do regularly that can move me towards that goal?


What current habit can I anchor this new action to?


Now get to it!

If you’d like more help, let’s talk. Go to the Work With Nettye page on my website and book a Discovery call. I’d love to step through this with you.

You can do it!
