Back On Track

Wow...the last two weeks have been something else for me..lol I've been traveling in and out of town and the food has been complimentary but guess what? It hasn't been healthy and I allowed myself to get off track. I already have a sweet addiction and relapse from time to time. I keep sweets out of my house but it's hard to resist when there is a great feast of it.lol Even though I am a fitness trainer, I do get weak sometimes...but because it's a lifestyle, when I get off track, I get back on. A lot of trainers may not have admitted this to you, but I'm human and I mess up too. Eating healthy can be compared to our Christian walk. It's a lifestyle and a journey. So if you're like me and you know you've been slacking, I'm encouraging you to get back on track. Get back in the game. It's amazing what 2 weeks of eating unhealthy can do. I started back and my body has been craving everything but I've been staying strong. Stay focused and let's do this thing. Also follow my health and fitness blogs for tips to help you stay on track.

Message To My Fans

I've been getting this question a lot and people want to know what happened because they thought I was a gospel artist. First off, I would like to say thank you for your concern and thank u for your support through the years. With this being my fourth album, every album serves a purpose. I've grown a lot and learned a lot since then. All of my albums have been my heart and this is where I am right now.

Not sure if u know this or not, but on my first album Life In Stereo, they said it wasn't gospel. It was very controversial for many. My second album 'The Lita Mae Show', they felt it wasn't churchy or serious enough for them. With my third album 'Girl Talk', they said the same things. Every album I've done, people expressed what they felt I should have or should not have done. Im saying that to say that I've always done and always will do what was in my heart. If I would've listened to what ppl wanted me to do, I wouldn't have gained the support I've gotten over the years and fans such as yourself.

Any genre that hinders the message is in the way. My fourth album Emotional is not about being Gospel or R&B. I don't make music with a genre in mind. It's me being vulnerable, hoping to help others through me sharing my life. I talk about life, love, and relationships. Unfortunately, 'Gospel' won't allow me to be as vulnerable as I am on this cd. It's where I am in my life right now. I'm being true to myself and I know that what leaves the heart reaches the heart. Again, I appreciate your support through the years and hope that you will support this album as well.

Love u much!! ♥

Overcoming Molestation/Rape

I was molested by an Uncle, Uncle In Law, Brother's Friend and almost by a friends brother at the ages of 4, 10 & 12. You may be like dang, what did you do to bring this on yourself for it to be more than one person...but Did you know that molestation can be a generational curse that runs in your family. A lot of women in my family have been raped and molested and some by family members...same as me. How is it that I've experienced the same thing older women in my family went through and these abusers don't even know each other? Generational Curse...but there is a way out..through Jesus Christ. I wrote this blog today bc for some reason, the enemy tried to remind me of all this junk today and me being the authentic person that I am knows that if He's trying to remind me of it, I know he's trying to remind you too. So, since he wanted to remind me of that, I wrote this blog to remind you of what Jesus will do for you.lol

There are negative effects that come with molestation...many times the violators are ppl you know..1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are molested. The negative effects are low-self esteem, promiscuity, perversion, etc...You can be restored. You just have to be willing to make the step to Him bc He's waiting on you.

It's time to start loving yourself. It's time to break the cycle of molestation and you can overcome. But the first thing u gotta do is acknowledge something happened. We bury this stuff so deep and wonder why we do certain things. It's time for you to release the past and embrace the future. It's time for you to no longer allow your abuser to have control over your life. Allow God to heal that place...you may wonder why God would allow that to happen. Do you know the enemy is comes to steal, kill, and destroy. He's always looking for someone to jack up. But guess what, God had your back all along.

We walk around with bitterness and angry in our hearts...but God is ready to heal. Inspite of everything that has happened, we have to keep pushing. Being molested causes so many emotional issues in our lives...from fear to insecurity to low self worth. But guess what, you're not what happened to you...you are who God says you are! My question to you is, what will you do if the person never apologizes to you. Will you still hold on to bitterness and unforgiveness? You can't. You gotta forgive whether they apologize or not.

I talk about this a little in my book "Get a Man, Keep a Man" and I just wanted to touch on it a little more & encourage you to let go and know that I understand your pain. Know that it is a process but you will get through it.

1.U gotta forgive....
2. Know that forgiveness is a choice and u'll never do it if you're waiting until u feel like it.
3. You can't do it withough God, depend on Him...
4.Pray for your abuser...
5. Release...u gotta let it go to move forward...don't keep moving through life like nothing ever happened. Face it and let it go...it's time to release...it's time to release...

Valentine Weekend

Had a great time Valentine Weekend! Hang out with my team and performed for the couples at Tokyohana. I took them back with a song I wrote "Your Love Is" from my second album that came out 2005 - The LitaMae Show...I also did my new single "Emotional". It was awesome. Check out a few pics..
