I do not accept defeat

Am I worried? Yes. Do I accept defeat? No. I am a fighter and I will triumph because I will always take on whatever challenge comes my way.

They say, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  Well I am not sure I want lemonade. Honestly I am not ready to settle for whatever life throws my way.   I understand that I am in control of my life and that I must be accountable for whatever is currently in my life, however that does not mean I must settle.   If I do not like where I am , I need to get clear on what I want next and take action.   By taking action I regain control and am on my way to where I want to be.  

You can choose to serve up more of what life gives you, or change your course by taking control.
Its up to you.

No time for Fear

No matter how positive you are or try to be FEAR will always creep up to remind you of your current situation, voices in your head tell you "you are stuck , no where to go". You toss and turn losing sleep and all this happens because in your sub conscious mind you are AFRAID of your situation, of what you need to do. You doubt your ability to overcome anything that comes your way. When you allow yourself to be controlled by fear I believe that at that moment you give away your power to Evil.....These feelings lead to anxiety, depression which can get out of control. We need to get back to the light of God, acknowledge our situation, and have the confidendence in our ability to overcome. GOD sent us into this world equipped with the tools needed to live a life of peace, harmony and dignity. Reach out to him and ask for strength and wisdom to see clearly and when you do, send FEAR packing cause you have no time for this sad and lonely emotions.

God can dream a bigger dream for you.......

“All of us need a vision for our lives, and even as we work to achieve that vision, we must surrender to the power that is greater than we know. It’s one of the defining principles of my life that I love to share: God can dream a bigger dream for you than you could ever dream for yourself.” - Oprah

I love that post from Oprah.    I truley believe God has designed a great life for us however at times
we are afraid to dream and vision more than we have.  We let fear and frustration cloud our vision and we
lose our way from that great life we could have.   

God has a bigger plan for us,  when you feel that tug in your gut pulling you in a direction, just go with it even if you feel afraid......dare to dream, dare to live and remember God's got your back!

What makes you happy?

That is someting only you can answer. 

Honestly there are times that you might not be sure of what makes you happy.  This is due to not having a clear definition of who you are.  In order to be fully happy in life you need to get to know yourself;  know who you are, what you want and where you are going.  

So do yourself a favor, get to know yourself and enjoy life to the fullest.   Be happy, be deserve it!

You are in control

Many times we are conflicted with problems, either at work or at home. Regardless of what problems you might have you must remain in control. Giving in to your problems is giving control to others or to events which at the end will negatively impact your life. This can happen to everyone however when it does you must quickly regain control. You must understand that whatever is occurring at that moment is temporary and that you are in total control to make things right. It might not seem clear to you at the time or the event might be longer than you wish however it will pass, and it will do so because you have the power to make things right. Noone and Nothing can rob you of your power.

I have known problems in my life mainly due to mismanagement of money. It is funny how people will tell you that “money can’t buy you happiness”, yet when you are flat broke, you are depressed, desperate and lonely. Some can get ill and some might not have the strength to carry on. I know this well, as I suffered from Anxiety due to my mistakes. When you are going through these issues you feel the walls collapsing around you with no way out. What can I do? Who can I speak to? It feels that it’s just you against the world and they are winning. These are just feelings…bad feelings. When you are in a bad place in your life, you can’t think straight. These bad feelings can take control of you IF you let them and can limit your ability to move on.

The most important lesson I have learned is to not allow the feelings of desperation to take control over me. By regaining control I am able to think clearly and analyze my next step.

Keep your cool in bad moments!

Make each moment count!

We are constantly making decisions, from waking up when the first alarm goes off, eating breakfast and so on.   This happens automatically and we do not realize all the decisions we make a day.  Do I wear a sweater or a jacket?  Do I go to work or call in sick?  Do I want coffee or tea?  You know this is true, we are constantly making decisions some are minor and some are major, but every decision you make will affect you either in a positive or negative way

Right now you might be contemplating a change of career or to go for a promotion.   Right now you might be deciding the level of dedication to give to your job or project.   Right now you might be deciding where to go on vacation.  Right now you might be deciding if to buy a pair of expensive shoes vs. the least expensive.  Right now you might be deciding if to study for a test or party with friends.  Regardless of what you are doing right now, you are making a decision that will impact your tomorrow. 

Think of it, right now, this moment is all you have……the past is gone….the future is tomorrow and it’s tied to the decisions you make at this moment. Therefore Right Now is the time that really matters.    Make each moment count!
