One Day at a Time


Today's question: Which daily tasks take up most of your energy?

Hmmmm… Thirty minutes have passed, and I’m trying to think of an answer. A year ago an answer to this question would have been shared with no hesitation. It would have included: stress, worry, talking myself out of the bed each day, etc.  I’ve been exhausted too many times to not notice the warning signs of energy drain. Thankfully, I have made a conscious effort to keep my energy in balance. 

Therefore, the daily tasks that are of the utmost importance are prayer, meditation, and working towards fulfilling my purpose.  From these tasks, everything else in my life flows. I’ve learned that it’s not beneficial to me to rush out of bed, hurry to start my day and skip talking to God or end the day and not let Him know how thankful I am.  

Do I get it right every day? No, I don’t. Am I always feeling balanced? Of course not. The point is that I have made these “tasks” a daily commitment, because I want to have more good days than bad ones. I’m also hoping to make Erma Bombeck’s quote my reality:

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.

I’m Trinka Polite! Georgia native! Aunt Extraordinaire (at least I think so)! Lover of divinely delicious food! Servant of God and I gratefully accept my calling as counselor, poet, and speaker. My mission? 

As a counselor, it is to empower you to access your full potential and live more authentically!

As a poet, it is to share words to inspire love, deliverance from hurtful situations and encourage a renewed relationship with God.

As a speaker, it is to provide a dynamic experience which will actively engage you and your group in learning and growing.

My professional background includes over 14 years as a Career Counselor providing education planning and career guidance.  I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia and National Board Certified Counselor with a Master’s degree in Psychology.  My publications include After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey and Pain is Fertile Ground—poetry collections focused on spiritual awakening and growth.

On a more personal note, the southern lady that I am loves to cook (have you seen my Pinterest board?) and have fun with my family!  Are there any two things that bring more joy to a G.R.I.T.S. (Girl raised in the south)? Lol 

I hope we stay connected because new ventures are on the way to enlighten your mind and to partner with you to chart a course for your success!  

Peace & Blessings!
