Strength

Sometimes I wonder what make some people stronger and some weaker, guess it has a lot to do with the pain people endure. As a woman, I have endured in lots of pain, but I didn’t allow it to define who I am as a person. The tragedies that I have encountered in the past has made me stronger. But you can eliminated lots of pain by creating healthy boundaries, then no one can hurt your feelings. Even if, someone does hurt your feelings, talk to them immediately. If it continues, then remove them from your life. Why hold on to someone that has no respect for you? Stop giving people your power, they don’t deserve it.

Here are ways to increase your strength:

  1. Don’t give your power away.
  2. Forget about the pity party.
  3. Embrace change.
  4. If you can’t control it, then let it go!
  5. Don’t kiss people behind to get ahead.
  6. Be a risk taker.
  7. Don’t hold on the past. No one likes a whiner or complainer.
  8. Mistakes are lessons, so don’t repeat.
  9. Don’t be a hater or jealous of other people success, it would make bitter.
  10. If you fall, then get back up. Never give up!
  11. It is normal to feel fear, so just do it.
  12. Get it out of your head, no one owes you a darn thing.
  13. Success is a slow process, so don’t expect rapid results.

Love, peace, joy and blessings! ❤

Extraordinary people

Extraordinary

As a child I always thought I was weird because I didn’t think like other children. I tried so hard to fit in and be accepted. The more I tried, the more I lost so much of being my true self. I always had huge dreams and great ideas. Before there were dance videos, I was able to coordinate a dance routine with some neighborhood kids. We sold tickets to the adults in the community and used the money for our celebration party. Those were the good old days. To this day, my mother questioned how a group of kids pull it off without any adults. Never doubt your children’s talents and/or gifts, it does nothing to their self-esteem.

As a young adult I tried being normal again, I was engage to my son’s father and hope that we will get married. But that never happened, I couldn’t bring myself to marry him and was with him for 17 years. I hated the idea of being his wife for the rest of my life. I felt that my life had ended. But this is how women think, they should get married and have children. But I was miserable, I wanted out badly. I wanted to pursue my dreams. It got to a point that I resented him or any other men that crossed my path that tried to stifle my growth.

Now, I am doing exactly what I want to do and loving every moment. If you have big dreams, go for it and don’t allow anyone to stop you for pursuing your dreams.

Love, peace, joy and blessings! ❤

Recognize Opportunities

Happy 2014, hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and brought the New Year in safe. I felt the need to hear God’s wisdom. I was also blessed to attend the NYC Inauguration 2014 to see some political officials be sworn in the city. As I assessed the environment to see the attendees, I felt truly grateful to witness history unfold in front of my eyes. I wondered why I was worthy to attend such a great event. I tried to figure out the lesson in the experience or maybe it wasn’t a lesson. Maybe it was a way to show me appreciation in my community service and/or canvassed political campaigns. Whatever it may or may not be, I recognized it was an opportunity and I will be forever grateful. Thanks to everyone that came across my path rather it was short or long term. And may God continue to bless all of us for a better 2014.

Love, peace, joy and blessings! ❤

Driven

It is not always easy to stay focus on our goals with so many distractions in our lives. Many of us are wearing multiple hats that we forget what our true purpose is on the planet. We have to remove whatever or whomever don’t serve our highest good. There will always be someone trying to sabotage our dreams, but don’t allow them. Don’t give up our power, and stay focus. Remember God is in control. Love, peace, joy, and blessings! ❤

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way

Agreed!

So here we are 21 habits and 3 weeks later and what have I learned from the Flow Happiness Project? Well quite a lot actually and probably more than I expected to.  So here is my take on happiness…

1. Happy people know their why

Happiness is essentially and absolutely a state of mind and has nothing to do with what you have or what other people do or do not do for you.  Happy people have a clear sense of meaning and purpose in relation to their lives which is not determined by external factors or prescribed by someone else. This inner ‘knowing’ about why they are here and what they are here to do also makes them more resilient which stands them in good stead, even in more challenging times.  In other words, happy people choose to be happy despite NOT because of whatever else is happening in their lives.

Don’t waste your time

Hope everyone had a great holiday, I had a fabulous time. It was great to be among love ones. As you move in 2014, assess your inner circle and eliminate people who don’t serve any purpose in your life. If that person makes you feel uncomfortable, then let that person go. If that person continues to hurt you, forgive and then let that person go. Life is too precious to be concerned about people insecurities, jealousies, and/or low self-esteem, so don’t allow people in your life to sabotage your success. Just let them GO!!!

Love, peace, joy and blessings! ❤
