Well after 5 years of hard work I finally got my Black Belt. I don’t think I will ever find the words to describe what it was like taking that test,or how truly amazed I am that I did everything required of me. The test took place over the course of three consecutive days,Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I can’t talk much about what I had to do because it is meant to be a surprise and a challenge for each person testing.I can tell you it was not easy,and a points I was not sure where to find the strength to keep going, I just refused to give up , so somehow the strength was there. There were a few times I thought I might just fall over but thankfully I did not.Each day presented it’s own challenges both physically and mentally, It was difficult at times to stay calm and keep a clear head with all the adrenaline pumping through my system. I did get worked up a few times, and I had to collect my self,and calm down to move on, I was very proud of myself fore having that ability is such a stressful situation, since it’s something I have always struggled with.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has been there for me through all of this, Everyone who watched the kids to get to class , helped me stay motivated and focused on my goal. Thank you to Master Jo and all the staff at TOMA fo their dedication and support. My family for always being there to help. I couldn’t have done this with out you.

I put a lot of hard work and dedication into achieving my goal, I could have given up many times but I didn’t. If you have something you want, you can have it ,as long as you work hard and don’t give up. It is not always easy to get the things we want, and sometimes It can seem like we will never achieve them, one thing I know for sure is ,you never achieve anything by giving up.We all deserve the things in life that make us happy, you simply have to allow yourself the opportunity to go after what you want, you deserve it, we all do. We only get one life, go after the things you want, while you can.

Always let your vision exceeded your reach
And you will find yourself reaching beyond
What you believed was possible


Tip of the Day – Create Your Future January 30, 2013

You can create you future with the things


Vision for the Future

This year my plan is a little different, this year instead of resolutions I’m creating a vision, my vision for 5 Minutes for Me in 2013 and beyond. I have been working on a project to bring this vision to life and to share it with everyone. I started a secret board on Pinterest called,5 Minutes for Me Vision Board, this board contains Pins with explanations of what I see for 5 Minutes for Me now and in the future. I have also included a pin with directions on how you can create your own Pinterest Vision Board. I have had a lot of fun with this project and think you will too, if you give it a try. Take your time and keep the board secret until you are ready to reveal it, That’s what I did.

Are you up for the challenge? Are you willing to bring your vision for yourself to life and share it with the world? I’m throwing it out there, Will you accept?

Here is the pin with the directions, or feel free to check out the 5minutesforme Pinterest  page. CLICK HERE! to view the full board.


To create my vision Board I used a combination of re-pins from Pinterest and slides I made myself in PowerPoint. Where ever you get your pins doesn’t matter, they just need to fit your vision.
