We always want things to be different. We don’t know why… we just do. So, we strive to improve things – even ourselves – when we are unsatisfied with how things are. But then what? Most times, we are still unsatisfied, because the underlying cause of our problems isn’t the things around us, but it’s our expectation of things.
Learn to enjoy life for what it is. Every now and then… take a moment, sit down… and reflect on your life. Continue reading Learn To Enjoy Life For What It Is…
“I wish I had more time!” That’s what most people are accustomed to saying whenever they have too much to do… but not enough time, seemingly, to do everything they want to do. It’s an overwhelming feeling. However, it’s just a feeling. Everyone has the same amount of time, but somehow, most people fill up the container of their days with too much stuff.
You’re not obligated to do everything just because you think you have to do it. When you realize you’re trying to fit too much stuff (tasks, errands, obligations) into a small container (24 hours), it becomes obvious that you can’t get a bigger container … so you have to get rid of some stuff. Everything just won’t fit. Therefore, you have to always think simplifying what you have to do. Continue reading Over Commitment of Your Time, Can Drain You…
It’s okay to be unique. GOD did not create you to be a copycat, or to be a carbon copy of someone else. You will find that with a little creativity, and a lot of faith, any difference can be turned into something amazing. Your difference is your power.
The normal way of doing things is often not the only way, nor the best way.
Ever been stuck in a rut of doing things a certain way, because that’s the way everyone else does things, or because that’s how it’s always been done? Because it’s safe. Continue reading Dare to Be Different. That’s The Best Part of Life…
Even when you do… fear doesn’t sleep. It’s all around you. It’s never satisfied unless it has your attention. Whenever fear can’t get your attention while you are awake, it will do its best to insert itself into your midnight thoughts – even your dreams – if you allow it.
Fear affects our lives in unseen ways, causing worry, hesitation, confusion, anxiety and avoidance. It can bring you to your knees… even cripple your lifestyle and your peace – if you allow it.
Truth is… fears control us in ways we never realize, unacknowledged and more powerful because of their unknown workings.
Fear can stop your dreams.
Fear can stop you from taking risks.
Fear can stop you from pursuing love.
Fear can stop you from seeking adventure.
Fear can stop you from speaking in public.
Fear can stop you from starting a new venture, etc….
It can cause you discomfort. It can cause you to procrastinate, overeat, and be distracted with worry. Continue reading Fear Is Harmless… Unless You Give It the Energy to Harm You
It’s up to you to make a commitment to change. It’s a big decision, and the decision is all yours. When and how… is your choice too. But, what if you had to make a list of all the habits you would like to change or create, how many changes would be on the list? Would you actually make the changes? Could you actually make the changes?
For many of us, we might have more than a dozen habit changes we’d like to make. And we want to make them all right now! However, you might find it helpful to know that, changes have to be thought of as being similar to a marathon, not a sprint. Continue reading When You Make The Decision To Change… You Have To Make Time Too
“People who repeatedly attack your confidence and self-esteem… are quite aware of your potential, even if you are not.” ― Wayne G. Trotman
If someone tells you that they don’t care what other people think, they are fooling themselves. Actually, it shouldn’t matter… but for some reason it does.
No one is free from worry.
Everyone is trying to look good in the eyes of others.
Everyone stresses out about how they look.
Everyone stresses about how they’re perceived.
Everyone stresses about whether people think they’re good people.
That’s why Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and mirrors exist. Continue reading It Doesn’t Matter What Others Think of Me. Or Does It?
“Beauty is not in the face. Beauty is a light in the heart. Beauty is power, and a smile, is it’s sword.”
YOU are a beautifully created being. So don’t try to live your life through someone else’s eyes. Yours are just fine. Realize you have your own unique beauty. And realize, you can’t please everyone… all the time. Use your own sight… coupled with your spiritual vision, to see your way through life. Continue reading You Have Your Own Unique Beauty….
