He sees you. You are not alone. Even though you might think you are alone, you’re not. He’s right there. He sees the tears you shed over unworthy things. You keep praying for God to give you something that doesn’t … Continue reading
Things won’t always go your way. I can guarantee you that. But learn how to accept the situation and live with it. We go wrong when we indulge in those feelings of regret and anger. Then we start to feel … Continue reading
I’ve learned that timing is everything. A relationship can be everything you want it to be and more if you just wait on the right timing. The right career will come along, but you have to be in the right … Continue reading
Enlarge Your Circle of Love We can be very shallow. If others do not dress like us or appear to be like us, we reject them. People are daily being judged by their skin color, background, heights, weight, and etc… … Continue reading
Okay, so you want the shortcut? There are no shortcuts in life. Shortcuts don't lead to the same destination.
I'm sure you've heard this saying before "Hard work pays off."
It's true. Hard work does pay off. When I graduated with my BA in English two years ago today, I wasn't sure what I was going to do. There were many paths I could've chosen.

I’m usually a nice person, so I hope this post doesn’t come out as a shock to some of you. I’m sure I’m not the only writer with this issue, but I’ve been pushed off the edge. For years now, … Continue reading
Decisions, decisions, decisions…
They can be very hard to make for some people, but for others, very easy. Decisions can determine your future and impact you for the rest of your life.
That’s why it’s important to think very carefully before making small or big decisions, especially when they can affect those around you.
Before making a decision, I think it’s important that you know what your values are. Know your values. Make a decision.
Just sharing what’s on my mind today!
Why do we always focus on what’s temporary? We constantly waste energy on what’s wasting away. On things that won’t last. Situations that will eventually change, and people who will also change.
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
New International Version (NIV)
It hurts. I know. People will disappoint. They will say things that hurt. Do things that hurt even more. They will say things about you that are not true. They will walk over you. They might even leave you hopeless … Continue reading
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm … As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others. Audrey Hepburn
I’ve learned that by helping others, I am only helping myself. Don’t be so self-centered to the point that you forget about others. Just remember that in time of need, a helping hand does wonders. And if you continue to only think of yourself and only yourself daily, one day you’ll truly be by yourself. Just pray it doesn’t happen when you need help the most. A simple phone call or a text, that’s a start. Today or tomorrow, focus your energy on helping someone else other than yourself. You’ll see how great it’ll feel.
Be a Helping Hand!
The day will come when you realize that your friends were truly your enemies, and your enemies were never meant to be your enemies. The day will come when you will have to learn how to accept changes and live … Continue reading
“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”
― Marilyn Monroe
Never look to the left or right at what others have. You don’t know what they had to endure to have those things. Instead, be content with what you have and work hard for those things you want. Envying others is the easiest way to kill yourself.
Have a blessed Monday!
24 Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! 25 All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. 26 So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. 27 I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
New Living Translation (NLT)
Wow, what a great word to start off my day with! I’ll let the scriptures speak for itself and won’t add anything to it.
Have a good day!
