Adjust your view

Nothing is going right for me. No matter what I do, things still remain the same. I can’t get ahead, because I’m always behind others. Everyone is rich, successful, and thriving, and I’m over here struggling to survive. It appears everyone is doing good, but me. I can’t win for losing. Things never seem toContinue reading “Adjust your view”

Motivated by doubt

Where do you get your motivation from? Is it your family, an inspiring YouTube video, or perhaps an encouraging “note?” There is something or someone that gives us the exact drive and ambition we need, to not only get us through the day, but get us to our goals. Although my students are some ofContinue reading “Motivated by doubt”

Broken

Have you ever wondered why some people naturally gravitate towards you, and others don’t? Could your personality, style or “vibe,” be the reason for the love, yet also the hate? It’s evident that everyone you meet won’t be fond of you, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t a likable person. What matters is whether orContinue reading “Broken”

Cutting off the branches

My mom and I used to watch this tv show called Mountain Men, on the Discovery Channel. It follows the lives of three mountain men living off the grid, who hunt, fish, sell fur and firewood to survive.

Hurting to heal

I love God! I know, shocker. Obviously, I was being facetious, but my relationship with God hasn’t always been “that great.” One of the biggest influences of that, has been the things I’ve gone through. Most of which were pretty bad, but somehow I was able to make it through, even though I didn’t wantContinue reading “Hurting to heal”

I would care, but this doesn’t involve me!

“Oh my gosh, they’re talking about me”, are the words circulating around in my head, as I walk past my worst enemies. More times than I’d like to admit, I’ve always cared about what others thought of me. “What are they thinking”? What are they saying”? For a long time, I imprisoned myself to thoseContinue reading “I would care, but this doesn’t involve me!”

Words are weapons too!

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me”. I can still hear the chant echoed by my elementary school classmates. However, truth of the matter, words do hurt! A lot of power lie within the tongue, so when speaking to someone or about someone, use caution with your words. I’mContinue reading “Words are weapons too!”

Let’s TALK!

A lot of times we keep quiet and reserve our opinions, because we don’t want to offend anyone, especially those we love. However, there comes a point in our lives where we have to have some “uncomfortable conversations” with people, although they aren’t easy to initiate.  The things we say are purely for motivational purposes,Continue reading “Let’s TALK!”
