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
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 … 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
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
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!
I’ve been writing and deleting, writing and deleting over and over again. The right words don’t seem to come, so I’m just gonna write whatever is on my mind.
It’s funny the way things turn out in life. We think we know what tomorrow brings, but life has a funny way of surprising us all, doesn’t it?
In the past, I found myself trying to hold on to certain things that I then realized were not even worth it.
Soon enough we all end up realizing who and what truly matters.
Surely in this life, we can’t please everybody.
So, some people will end up walking away from us or vice versa.
2012 for me, there were some drastic major changes in my life. Some good and some difficult ones and I’m still trying to adjust to. And now so early in 2013, I’m realizing more and more that those changes were supposed to happen. It’s the way God wanted it. I think I was afraid of change. I wanted things to remain the same even though it wasn’t the best thing for me.
Why worry about things that are not even worth your time?
“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.”
― C. JoyBell C.
Have a good evening!
Some people say there is no such thing as being too nice. I highly disagree. Yes, being nice is a virtue.
Yes, it’s good to be nice, but niceness also has its boundaries.
When you are way too nice, some people choose to walk over all and take advantage of you. Like friends, family and even strangers can walk over you. I’m not saying go out and be MEAN now, but be careful. Watch out for those people who take advantage of you because of now nice you are. You may have to change your attitude so you can become a stronger person.
Like I said, you don’t have to be rude or mean, just stand on your ground and don’t let anybody persuade you and take advantage of you.
Being too nice can lead to getting hurt easily. Don’t let people play with your heart. Get a grip and learn how to be a nice person without letting people take advantage of you or stomping all over your heart as if you didn’t have one!
Like it says in Proverbs 4:23… Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

It can be very tempting to want to get someone back for something they did to you. In other words: Revenge. I’m sure we’ve all have been in situations when someone did something to us we didn’t appreciate or said … Continue reading

It’s a new year…
An opportunity to start fresh. Doesn’t last year sound so much further than yesterday? Sounds so far away when really, it was just a day ago!
I hope that this year, each of you will take the time to find out what is it that you were placed on this earth to do… I hope you will find your purpose in life and fulfill it little by little. It will not happen overnight, but as long as you’re taking steps towards it, you’re on the right track. Try this for 13′:
1. Think different
2. See different
3. Act different
4. BE DIFFERENT
There’s more to life than waking up every single morning and going to a 9-5!
2013 is yours!

There are some people in this world who are a part of your life who believe they truly know what’s best for you, as if they are GOD himself.
They want you to conform to their ways. They want you to agree with them and to think like them, forgetting that you are your OWN person. You have your own thoughts, opinions, and your own brain.
Why should you think like them?
Why must you agree with them?
Who are they to tell you how to live your life?
Disagreeing makes you the ‘bad guy.’
Trust me, I understand.
Pay them no mind. Continue to live your life. The life God intended for you and become the person He wants you to become–not what someone says or wants for your life. Don’t let people tell YOU what’s best for YOU. Last time I checked, God was the one who made YOU. HE knows what’s best for you and what’s not!!!
