Enthusiasm: Gratitude


Enthusiasm about life is what keeps me going in the mist of growing pains. I am so thankful for life and the opportunities to be the best that I can be.

I believe that we all have missions here on earth. We are here to serve each other, and it is easy to become distracted by all the drama. However, it takes great character, integrity, and moral/ethical strength to look past all the drama and see the similarities that we all have and not focus so much on the differences. Yes. we are all unique, and that is one out of a million plus things that makes life so interesting.

You never know how long you will be here on earth.


Conundrum: limited possibilities?


One conundrum that I often face is helping others to see that it is possible to achieve their goals.   Once individuals see that achieving their goals is possible, their imaginary lid of “limited possibilities” comes off.  Tasks become easier to complete and are completed in a timely fashion.  It is amazing how much more effective we are once we have faith in our abilities.  We no longer make excuses for what we did not accomplish and set achievable, realistic, and timely goals.  We find creative means to balance family life,  personal time, school, and work.

Until we make something a priority in our life, it will not be a priority.

“Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.”
Stephen R. Covey

“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe



Flee: Your sanity, your life.



From individuals who consistently shoot down your dreams and call you “crazy.” Just because they do not believe in the possibilities does not mean that you should too. It may be time to look for better company.

From those who belittle you so that they appear bigger than what they are. Soon, they will find out that their height is an illusion. If they can’t see and appreciate your true beauty and your uniqueness, then you may want to look for better company.

From individuals who abuse you…emotionally, mentally, physically, and in any other way.  If they can’t see the power of your name, that you deserve life and respect you, because you are here, then you may want to look for better company.

From living an ordinary life and trying to fit in the crowd. You were made to be different. Even identical twins are different. If others want you to smile, talk, wear the same clothes, eat like them, breathe like them, agree with everything that they say, then you may want to look for better company.

You always have a choice. Thinking that you do not have a choice is a choice. If you think you do not have a choice, then you have chosen to limit your thoughts.

Heal within and be true to you!
