How are you Blessed?


As you begin your day it may seem that it’s just “one of those days”, and you really are not in the mood for anything. It seems that there is no reason to be excited and it’s plainly just another day. You are moping around with not even the least bit of enthusiasm, and frowning up at those that are all bubbly on today. There is no reason for you to be salty with them. The reality lies in the fact that you need to get back to your spice, but you have no clue of how to do so. Here is a task for you, consider writing down all of the positive aspects of your life and consider them blessings from God. As you begin to make this list, you will realize that the good almost always outweighs the bad. Perhaps this may become a task of practice when you get back to this feeling next time. Even during the bad times, it’s important that you focus on the positive because they are the ones that last for an eternity. It seems that people hold on to their struggles instead of realizing that their existence will always be temporary, even if the same struggle occurs more than once. Trials only come to make you strong, not to hinder you for eternity. Consider it a lesson and not an organism that you need in order to survive.

Become Stressless

Right now it may seem that there is no possible way that you can see past all the hurt that you are experiencing right now. It’s unclear of how you could ever love your life again. The struggle seems that it has intensified in nature just within the past couple of days. It’s time that you see the good even during difficulty. Even if it is true that you feel you are at your worst that only leaves room for better. If life was all peaches and cream as you walk on the beach, what exactly would you learn and define as your takeaways? There would be none because in that case life could get no better because you have all you desire. Life is designed to be an equal balance of the good, the bad, and the ugly. The test and trials are only the source of your strength and ensure that you will be more than a conqueror. It’s time that you shake that stress off because it doesn’t compliment that peace and joy that lives on the inside of you. Perhaps it’s time that you lock yourself in the room and go far away from the world around you. Just for a few moments alone, consume yourself with what creates the most happiness for you. It’s more than sure going to make you feel so much better!

Who Showed up to your Dress Rehearsal?

As you consider the individuals that are a part of your life, have you ever considered just where exactly they stand? It may seem that they are of some level of importance, but the reality lies in the fact that you are always the one that gives and you are never in the position of receiving. It seems that you must always celebrate with them, but when is it ever your time to shine? You give and give and give, but you never take thinking that you should always be concerned about helping others. It’s perfectly fine to switch roles and get help from others. If you are always the motivator and source of inspiration, what happens when you need to receive all the uplifting that you give? This then takes you to your dress rehearsal, there you evaluate the scene to determine what works, and what parts can be done away with. In certain portions of what’s in your views, there are some things that don’t flow and it is then that those particular things be flattened out. Once all the necessary changes have been made, you will finally be able to see who truly cares about the success of your show, or life as you call it. Those individuals will assume their rightful position on the front row. There are some that may assume that position and not deserve that great of a view, in that case the balcony is the best choice for them.  Make sure that you placed individuals in their appropriate seat.

Hold On


One common phrase that we hear used in the south is “Are you yet holdin’ on? Then keep keepin’ on!”. The younger generation of people never fully gets a grasp on that saying until later on in life. It is considered to be one of those phrases that only the older people understand. The truth of this statement summarizes the essence of life. It simply asks if you are living then continue to live. It is only when we experience life that we are able to obtain a clear understanding of the course of life. Don’t allow yourself to become so consumed with all of the other elements that make up your life that you ignore just the general existence of it. Cherish it and make the best of it!

Strength in the Valley

There are many moments in life where we think that at our lowest moment in life we are worthless. It seems that many ignore the fact that they could be used even in that moment to lift someone else up. Tests are considered the deepest valleys that we pass through as we hike up and down throughout life. We gain so much endurance that we are able to advice others when they get to that point that we have already journeyed through. Even when you don’t think so, you are fully equipped for both the best and worst times every day that you are given life. As you review this song remember that there is only one MAN that has control over your life ad he knows the ins and outs of this path better than any person you know.  He is able to bring you through and do what no one else can do! You should be thankful that there is at least one person that you can depend on regardless of the situation.

Great Gift, Right Reason

We are all bestowed the great blessing of receiving a magnificent gift that has the potential to be nothing but great. This issue then becomes that we put it to use in the correct manner. The struggle that exist includes the fact that you are able to use your gift both effectively and efficiently without being viewed as boasting or bragging. The possession of a great gift comes with the ability to be as humble as possible. Humility allows you to be of service to God at all times, and not becoming an individual that is great and might because of their gift.  Its seems that people get so caught up in their career as it relates to both the title and position they hold that they are unable to see the truth in the gift that God has granted them to make their career a success. Let’s focus on our gifts and nurture them in every possible way!

Your Concerns

There are many times that we get caught up in the troubles of those around us. When our friends and family have become upset and are unable to get beyond the wrong that someone has done to them, we begin to hold grudges along with them. It is through association that we develop ill feelings towards others. The problem with this then is that when a situation doesn’t concern you why then have you even developed an issue with any individual involved? It is now at this time that we remove ourselves from those things that will never have the potential to be considered even the slightest conern. What is then defined as your concern? A concern of yours is one that includes you and affects you directly. It is during that moment that you have the right get as upset as you desire. FOCUS ON ONLY YOUR CONCERNS TODAY!!!

What exactly do you define your “it” as?

It is most often that we walk around with the troubles of the world on our shoulders. We are so consumed with what’s going on that we are unable to see who has the complete control over our life. This day to day experience that we have has been planned long before we took our first breathe. So what exactly is your “it”? What do you contribute the most headache and heartache to? What is the one thing that can change your mood or even the feel of your day? This then is your “it”!

                “Whatever your “it” is today, know that it is NOT bigger than your God! It has come either to distract you or push you closer to Gd. It will neither make you nor break you. You were not made to break. Tell your “it” to kick rocks! The best part of today will come when make up your mind to refuse to be dethroned (QUEEN). Don’t focus on your “it” but focus on the ONE who can handle it. Let God be God in your life today. Spouses, children, finances, jobs, health, etc.,  NONE are bigger than the God you serve. Make your “it” small so your day can be great!”

Motivational Mondays

It is on this day that we celebrate the love that they share with others. It seems that we get up in the commercial aspect whereas we espect presents only on this day. We ignore the fact that love exist every other day of the year aside from this one. As we evaluate this holiday it is most important that we ensure that we do not focus so much on the love that we have for others but acknowledge the love that we posses for our own self. Love for others exist only after we are able to love our own self.  Love from within is one of those possesions that can possibly become contagious whereas others maybe able to practice the same thing. As you begin to love yourself this holiday then transitions to a day of personal appreciation of  what you have done for you and that is LOVE YOU!

Feeling Good Friday

As you consider plans for your weekend why not indulge in some personal pampering? Most often wyou focus on all of  the things that we do for others that we forget the one person that matters the most, YOU!!!!! You have become so overwhelmed with the many responsibilities that include others and you have failed to acknowledge the obligations that you have to your own self.  Ignoring your needs depreciatest the true essence of happiness in your life. So decide to get a manicure, pedicure, new hairstyle, or maybe even purchase a new outfit. Decide to do something for you that makes you more than happy!
