Today I share 4 ways to go from wallowing to WONDERING what life would be like IF…

If you’re wallowing in your life, you’re drowning in it.

A wallow is “an area of mud or shallow water where mammals go to wallow, typically developing into a depression in the ground over long use.”




Try these 4 things instead:

1. Spit it out.

Don’t drink poison. Even if it’s coming from the inside of you.

Speak up. Say what you need to say.

Release it. Get IT out of you.

2. Swallow it.

Humility is a brave and powerful antidote to wallowing in whatever it is you’re wallowing in.

Swallow it. Digest it. Then turn it into fuel for your body and soul.

BUT whatever you do, DON’T continue to swallow the poison of “unforgiveness” anymore!

Stop drinking poison thinking that somehow someone else is going to pay the price.



Forgive yourself. Release yourself and others.

Stop playing “NOT to LOSE.”

Start playing to WIN.

Start living the life you desire to live.


Drop by drop, you can handle just about anything…except poison!

What are you REALLY thirsty for?

Identify what you LOVE and begin to SIP ON IT.

Stop trying to quench your thirst with dirt!

Or by EATING YOU from the inside out.

OR by allowing someone else to feed on you and your life.

Feel it, but don’t feed it.

Swallow, don’t wallow.

Sip on it. Don’t drown in it.


Begin Sipping On Your Life, and ENJOY every drop.

Release anything in your life that’s not working and no longer fits.

It doesn't belong to you or in YOU.

Honor yourself.

4. Be WONDER-FILLED with whatever it is YOU desire to SIP ON.


Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) 


Identify what it is that you’ve been wallowing in.

What is it?

If you’re wallowing in any area of your life, there’s likely “UNFORGIVENESS” that must be SPIT OUT.

Let it out, and let yourself go.

Make a decision.

Take at least one step today that'll allow you to be filled with wonder.
