In life, some of the best lessons come from obstacles. Whether good or bad, we remember what we had to go through and the result. A takeaway from any lesson is to learn from it and use the tools it gives you, not to relearn that lesson again.  Sometimes you have to learn it repeatedly until you get it right, but that is what second chances are all about!

Get ready for what you asked for
Get ready for what you asked for
Have you ever asked God for something, hoping he would give it to you just because you asked? My passion is to help women, but my weakness is speaking in public. Whenever there was an opportunity to talk in front of others, I would either decline or be so nervous that I would fumble over my words and talk fast. One morning, I heard a word from God that said, "Stay ready, so you do not have to get ready," but I wasn't sure what that meant. Then, later on, I was listening to Sarah Jakes Roberts, and her podcast episode was about staying ready, so you do have to get ready and prepare for what you are asking for. That is when I knew God was telling me something. Click play to listen to this week's episode! Instagram: @arvilla_beckworth.  Facebook: @arvillabeckworth

What is your love language?
"If you want to find the love of your life, look in the mirror" ~Unknown In my journey of learning to love myself better, I could never figure out why it was so hard for me to show people how to love me.  I was often frustrated because I thought the way I loved people was the same way I would receive it until I came across a book that thoroughly explained to me what I was missing.  Many people do not realize that loving yourself first is the foundation for any relationship you enter. Whether its a friendship, relationship, marriage, or work, when you can communicate to others how you feel when loved correctly, you will take away a lot of the guesswork out for them!  Listen to this week's episode as I talk about the love languages and how they can help you!  Click here to get your free download, 36 Solo Date Night Ideas!

When the apology your looking for doesn't come
When the apology your looking for doesn't come
Why is it so hard for people to apologize when they did you wrong? I remember when I was looking for an apology for someone who mistreated me, and did you know that the person acted like I was the reason I got mistreated!! So instead of admitting that they did me wrong, it was easier for them to place the blame elsewhere. For years this bothered me because I was looking for an apology to validate my feelings. Just hearing the words "I'm sorry" and they meant it would have put my mind at ease. But when it never came, I had to forgive and move on. Let's connect on social media!!

On top of that, at the age of 3, she was separated from her mother due to her drug addiction. This caused her to develop anxiety and uncertainty later in life. As her mom continued to go in and out of rehab, Lauren had to stay with her mom's friends while her mom was getting the help she needed. At 17, her mother had another bout with her addiction. Nevertheless, Lauren was determined to graduate high school, so she moved out and stayed with her childhood friend. You can connect with Lauren on Instagram at lownicole1289

Dealing with a family member who is a narcissist
Dealing with a family member who is a narcissist
It can be difficult when someone you love doesn't know how to love you back. They lack empathy and even blame others, but what do you do when it is your family member? In this episode, I give you four tips to deal with a narcissistic family member. Please don't call them a narcissist: Unfortunately, people with a narcissistic personality disorder will not recognize that they are the problem. They cannot see their behavior. Please don't argue with them; you will not win: They see themself as the victim, and you are the problem. Offer them a compliment first, then give them a small dose of negative feedback. Set limits and boundaries: Decide to give some space to the other person or cut ties altogether. You may not be able to control their behavior, but you can prevent being around them. Seek counseling and support from family members: Get a support system that will build you up and help you heal from the hurt. If you need help healing from a narcissistic relationship, please contact Joy Larkin of Live Narc Free, LLC.

How to recognize a narcissist
How to recognize a narcissist
How many of you know a narcissist? I believe we all have seen, met, worked with, been around, maybe in a relationship with a Narcissist. Someone who thinks you should praise the ground they walk on exaggerates their accomplishments and even removes people from their lives if they are not beneficial to them. Taylor Counseling Group stated in an article "How to deal with a narcissistic family member," April 2, 2021, that an estimated 5% of the American population may have a narcissistic condition. I am in no shape or form a qualified therapist, but I had a past relationship with a narcissist that made me feel like I was the problem and I could never make them happy. The signs were there; I did not know it at the time. SO in this episode, I want to help someone recognize the traits and avoid being in a toxic relationship. If you need help healing from a narcissistic relationship, please contact Joy Larkin of Live Narc Free, LLC. She is a Narcissist Abuse Coach who specializes in how to overcome narc abuse and turning your pain into power. Let her know Arvilla sent you!

The number one reason why people do not accomplish their dreams is that they do not take action. Do you know the difference between a dream and a goal?  As a kid, I loved to dream and thought of the possibilities of what my life could turn out to be. Dreaming is what kept my imagination going. But, once I got a little older, I realized I had to do something about those dreams for them to come true. Are you ready to take those dreams and turn them into a reality? Take a listen to this week's episode as I explain the difference between the two and give you tips to becoming a goal-getter!

Interview w/April Denzmore, Pursuing your dreams
What do you do when you put your dreams on hold to focus on your family?  In today's interview, I spoke with a single mother of 2 who courageously stepped out and pursued her dreams. Obstacles came her way, but she knew she had a legacy to leave to her daughters. With discipline, resilience, and coach, April left her 9 to 5 job to pursue her dreams full time. The thing that kept her focused was knowing her WHY. "Your WHY will give you the fuel to push through." -April Denzmore. Dreams and goals are the two things that keep us looking forward to a better life. But, until we choose to go after them and make them come true, they will stay right where we left them, in our minds. If you ever were discouraged because you have yet to pursue your dreams, take a listen to this week's episode!

Are you ready for what you asked for?
Are you ready for what you asked for?
Have you ever asked God for something, hoping he would give it to you just because you asked? My passion is to help women, but my weakness is speaking in public. Whenever there was an opportunity to talk in front of others, I would either decline or be so nervous that I would fumble over my words and talk fast. One morning, I heard a word from God that said, "Stay ready, so you do not have to get ready," but I wasn't sure what that meant. Then, later on, I was listening to Sarah Jakes Roberts, and her podcast episode was about staying ready, so you do have to get ready and prepare for what you are asking for. That is when I knew God was telling me something. Click play to listen to this week's episode!

Burnout is something we have to take ownership of. When our body has been giving us signs that it is approaching "empty" and needs us to pull over and fill up, we need to listen. Please do not wait until you are "empty" before you recognize burnout. Be in tune with yourself to know when to stop what you are doing and reassess what your body needs. Steps to prevent burnout: Figure out what has led you to be burned out. Reconnect with your WHY. Be clear on what you need to be fully functional. Set boundaries. Set up a self-care routine.

Dumping Debt
What would your life look like if you had no debt? Would you be able to... Take more vacations? Retire early? Start a business? Send your child to college debt-free? Take care of your parents? I know a lot of us would love to have some extra money each month. At the age of 19, I had over eight credit cards, and I was irresponsible with them all. As I got older, debt stopped me from buying my first home, pay a higher interest rate on a new car, and denied me from getting loans. Debt had me wrapped up, that I had to file bankruptcy to get a fresh start. In 2013, I found Financial Peace University and slowly worked my way back to cleaning up my debt. In this episode, I talk about getting out of debt and ways you can pay your debt off.  Listen to this week's episode!

As we continue with the financial series, I want to talk about saving for an emergency.

Gallup did a survey before the 2008 crisis hit and found out that only 32% of Americans would be able to cover an emergency of $5,000 without borrowing money. That data alone should have you look at your finances and see if you are prepared to cover an emergency.

Interview w/Lillian Hernandez, Battling Depression
Interview w/Lillian Hernandez, Battling Depression
Depression can affect anyone. Whether you are rich, poor, black, white, man, woman, young, old. It hits everyone the same. Lillian Hernandez, Podcast Host of "Wine Down With Lil," dropped an episode on her podcast called My Experiences with Depression (January 20, 2021). In this interview, she spoke about being bullied in high school due to the texture of her hair, almost stabbed on the playground in elementary, and dealing with depression at an early age. Today Lillian and I talk about how depression affects us as women. It is easy for us to internalize a lot of feelings and still function like everything is ok. But what do you do when that one off day turns into an off week and then an off month? If you are struggling with depression, please contact SAMHSA National Hotline at 1-800-662-4357. It is a free, confidential, 24 hours, 365 days a year hotline that helps individuals and families facing mental and/or substance use disorders. www.samhsa.gov

When it's time to walk away
When it's time to walk away
There will be times when certain situations no longer serve you. Whether it be a job, dream, relationship, etc. We have to decide to walk away and be ok with starting over. A few questions you can ask yourself to see if you need to walk away are... Is there a better option? Is it causing me to be unhappy? Am I losing money? Don't stay in something just because it makes someone else happy, it's convenient, or I do not have any other option. Make yourself a priority, and don't be afraid to start over. Over time, you will be in a better situation and much happier.

When obstacles give you an opportunity to become a better version of yourself, take it
When obstacles give you an opportunity to become a better version of yourself, take it
In life, some of the best lessons come from obstacles. Whether good or bad, we remember what we had to go through and the end result. A takeaway from any lesson is to learn from it and use the tools it gives you not to relearn that lesson again. Sometimes you have to learn it repeatedly until you get it right, but that is what second chances are all about!

When a relationship is no longer healthy
When a relationship is no longer healthy
A new relationship gives you butterflies, boosts your mood, and has your heart skipping a beat, but as time goes, what once made you happy no longer brings you joy. Your family and friends noticed you are distant.  Your demeanor has changed.  You have become short-tempered and angry. You're walking on eggshells. The relationship may not be an intimate relationship but a parent, friend, coworker, or business partner. Regardless who it is, staying in a relationship that doesn't add value to your life is not worth losing yourself behind.  Recognize the signs early and get out! If you feel unsafe, need help, or receive advice anonymously, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233

Second Chances
Second Chances
What does a second chance mean for you? Does it mean a redo, to fix something you messed up, or start over? I had to look up the definition in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, and it stated it's "An opportunity to try something again after failing one time." I know I am not the only one who had some mistakes in their life; they wish they could get another chance at fixing them. The one thing about my mistakes was that I didn't remember the lessons, so I kept learning the hard way to get it together. In this episode, I give you seven things you can use to get a second chance. It won't be easy but well worth it in the long run. Understand it's what you do with a second chance that counts, not the process. If you need help coming up with a plan to try something again, click this link for a free 15 min consultation!

Don't forget your small wins
When someone ask you how your year went, can you remember all of your wins? A friend told me that the best way to remember is to get a mason jar and sticky notes. From January 1-December 31, write down all of your wins.  On December 31, take time out and reflect on everything you accomplished for the year. You will be surprised how much you did! Some people say that 2020 was rough and nothing positive came out of it, but when I read through all of my wins, It wasn't bad at all. Check out my Instagram page where I show my Jar and my sticky notes. Hopefully, it will encourage you to start your own jar!

How to set goals you can actual reach
How to set goals you can actual reach
As we approach the new year, many of us will create some sort of new year's resolution/goals/vision board. In order for these thing to come true, we need to put action behind them. Like anything,  we have to be intentional where we put our energy and resources.  An article in PositivePsychology.com "The science & psychology of goal-setting 101"  states that "Goal setting in psychology refers to a successful plan of action that we set for ourselves. It guides us to choose the right moves, at the right time, and in the right way." In this episode, I give you 10 steps to reaching your goals for permanent success by using S.M.A.R.T goals.  Goals that are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-based.  If you are struggling to set a goal and need help, click here for a free 15 min consultation.

How vision boards help me reach my goals.
How vision boards help me reach my goals.
How do you plan for the upcoming new year when it comes to your goals? Do you create a New Years resolution, vision board, or do you wing it? For me, vision boards helps me accomplish my goals by keeping me accountable. I put it where I can see it daily and I say them out loud.  It helps me see a snap shot of what I am working towards. Once I have completed the vision board, I start to create an action plan on how to get it done. Without putting a plan together on how it will work, it will be another vision board hanging on my wall. Take some time and figure out what changes you want to see in the new year. It starts with you and your decision to change.

Get ready for what you asked for
Get ready for what you asked for
Have you ever asked God for something hoping he would give it to you just because you asked? My passion is to help women but my weakness is speaking in public. Every time there was an opportunity to speak in front of others, I would either decline or be so nervous that I would fumble over my words and talk fast. One morning, I heard a word from God that said "Stay ready so you do not have to get ready" but I wasn't sure what that meant. Then later on I was listening to Sarah Jakes Roberts and her podcast episode was about staying ready so you do have to get ready and prepare for what you are asking for.  Now when I heard that, I knew God was telling me something.

Are you ready to put in the work or are you going to keep talking about it? Here are 4 things to remember.... Put together an action plan and make it clear. If the goal is too big, break it down to smaller achievable goals. For every milestone you complete, reward yourself. Have a completion date. Don't forget Daylight Savings is November 1st!

Happy Labor Day! I hope you are getting some much needed rest this holiday weekend! This month I have been talking about replenishing yourself and getting your energy intact. I spoke about how to recognize the signs of burnout and then how to incorporate self-care into your routine. Now I want to talk about giving from your overflow. As long as you are giving to others from a place of depletion, you will never be full. Imagine an empty glass and a full pitcher. The glass in it's natural state is empty, but when you start to pour the content in the pitcher into the glass, it feels up. Once the glass fills up, you can either stop or continue to keep pouring. The excess of the pouring is your overflow. Please do not give from your cup because this is what you need to function each day. Give to others and things from the extra overflow you have.

I unfortunately neglected self-care and become overextend/burnout. I knew I was not doing the things I needed to keep my mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical space intact. I thought I could push through and my body would bounce back like it normally did, but not this time. My body decided to shutdown. Luckily I caught it early and took a week and a half off of work to replenish myself. Somethings I done was: Take a bubble bath, rest, watched my favorite show, talk to my husband about my burnout, get a pedicure, have a piece of chocolate cake!

How to recognize burnout
Burnout is something we have to take ownership for. When our body has been giving us signs that it is approaching "empty" and needs us to pull over and fill up, we need to listen. Do not wait until your "empty" before you recognize burnout. Be in tune with yourself to know when it is time to stop what you are doing and reassess what your body needs. Steps to prevent future burnout: *Figure out what has led you to being burned out. *Reconnect with your WHY *Be clear on what you need to be fully functional *Set boundaries *Set up a self-care routine If you are at a point where you are past burnout, please seek professional help immediately.

If it wasn't something major, I just brushed it off and kept moving. Then a friend of mine told me to get a mason jar and every time I had an win/success, write it on a sticky note then fold up and put it in the jar. If I start it January 1 and end it December 30, on December 31 I could empty the jar and read everything I did for the year!  So as of July, my jar is only 35% full.

Focus on the finish line
When starting a goal, it is exciting to be in the beginning phase because you have drive, excitement and ambitions to get started. As time goes and the weeks turn into months, you no longer feel the same way as you did in the beginning. You start skipping days on working toward goals, then you slow down the progress even further, and you eventually stop. You have to believe it before you see it and keep push even when you do not feel like it. Focus on the finish line so you not only see who you are becoming, but be proud of yourself for completing what you said you would do. The old saying is "Keep your eyes on the prize". Listen to the weeks episode to get some encouragement. You come to far to start back over, so keep pushing!

As you can see, me and finances were not friends. It took me over 10 years to get my finances back in order, plus an additional 4 years to develop and maintain a budget. Sit back and listen to why it is important to take control of your finances. To learn how to live debt-free, check out Financial Peace University.

Organizing your schedule
Organizing your schedule
Last week I talked about organizing your mind. Now this week I want to talk about organizing your schedule. With us being on a modified schedule because of COVID-19, we have to be more diligent with our time. If your not careful, one episode of Netflix can turn into a marathon of binge watching of your favorite show.  Do you remember telling yourself, "If I only had a little more time"?  or "When things slow down, I will do ..." Well guess what, now is the time.  Time to organize your schedule!

Organizing your mind
Organizing your mind
When you think about spring cleaning, you only think of the physical cleaning and not the mental. Did you know if your mind is cluttered more than likely your life is too? It is no coincidence that the two go hand and hand because whatever is going on internally will start to show externally. So take control of your mind by clearing out your mental clutter!

How to use your time wisely during this downtime
How to use your time wisely during this downtime
Here we are, another week of ever changing events. At first it was no more than 250 congregated, then 50, now 10. So basically no congregating. Well with that being the case, why not use your time wisely at home. If you have kids at home, go back to board games and family dinners without electronic interference. Maybe it is just you and your significant other, why not cuddle up and watch Netflix's for a few hours! And maybe your are single, use this time to check in with your girls and host a video chat party and host a sleepover via FaceTime or Duo.

How can a bad relationship influence your next relationship
How can a bad relationship influence your next relationship
In episode#10, I interviewed my husband about the early stages of our relationship. When we got together, I was still dealing with some unresolved issues that I was bringing into this relationship. I thought it would be nice for my husband to give his take on what it was like in the beginning. We don't realize if we do not heal from a bad relationship, we carry the hurt into another one. Counseling helped me realize that I made a bad choice in a relationship, but I could change my thought process by bettering myself and learning from it. Instagram | Website

Episode #1, Welcome and why I started this podcast
Today on the very first episode, I want to welcome you to my podcast and give you some background on why I started it. I believe everyone deserve a second chance at life and what better way to get it than to do it over. It has taken me years to come through my transformation period and it all started from a domestic violence relationship.  We all want change to happen fast, but if the change doesn't start internally, we go back to what is familiar.
