Wake up each day and fell Blessed to be alive

Want to truly live life?
Make a new routine.
Wake up each day and feel blessed to be alive.
To be gifted with energy and enthusiasm,
To have a whole day ahead where every second is a choice to use and forever remember it or waste and make it forgetful.
To have the power to make a difference,
To change lives,
To make things better, to ensure that today gets you one step closer to the dreams of tomorrow.
To have the privilege of having a warm home,
A meal, health, warm clothes,
The opportunity to go to work,
To have things to smile about,
To know that this one day could mean all the difference for the rest of my life …
That is living, truly embracing every second.

Now and Forever

Times can get tough,

but we will always get through,

holding our heads up and keeping our cool.

We can fight like we’re enemies,

but know we are best friends.

Staying true to our promise,

to love till the end.

First my friend,

and then my love,

and now and forever,

My Husband

Where there is a desire,
there is gonna be a flame.
Where there is a flame,
someone's bound to get burned. 
But just because it burns,
doesn't mean you're gonna die,
you've gotta get up and try try try

Mother and Daughter

A daughter is a mother’s gender partner,
Her closet ally in the family union,
An extension of herself.
And mothers are their daughter’s role models,
Their biological and emotional roadmap,
The mediator of all their relationships.

Daughters are angels sent from above to fill our hearts with never ending love.

♥ ♥ ♥

Mother and Son

The bond between Mother and Son is a special one.
It remains unchanged by time or distance.
It is the purest love ~
unconditional and true.
It is understanding of any situation and forgiving of any mistakes.

The bond between Mother and Son lasts a lifetime.

Your Journey

Don't Ever Forget Your Value

We are all very valuable, and despite what we want to believe as we are faced with the adversity of being lost in the crowd, we have to remember that we have meaning. 
Trust in the fact that God put you on this earth for a reason. 
You have to use your faith to not only be alive in life, but you also have to have faith so that you can succeed.

You have to believe, because when you believe you are empowered. 
You may not be perfect, but you are more than what you were yesterday, and you can be much more tomorrow if you believe in yourself.

You might feel worthless to one person, but you're priceless to another. Don't ever forget your value.

Take Nothing for Granted

Many times we are so content with how we are living in our lives, that we start to take life for granted. 
There are times for everything, and the time to be grateful, and cherish those who love us, and the situations in our lives that we know we are abundantly blessed should be on an everyday basis. 

Some people only want to focus on the things that are going wrong in their lives, instead of focusing on the fact that they are really blessed, and that they can really achieve if they use what they have now.

Your dreams are still ahead of you; never take being able to have a dream for granted, because not everyone is able to do so. 

Never take any of your privileges in this life for granted.

You'll Meet Two Kinds of People in Life

You will meet two kinds of people in life: ones who build you up and ones who tear you down. 
But in the end, you'll thank them both.

Make sure that as you believe and that as you create life, that you place people around you that believe as well. 
So many people in life are people who will build you up, while there will be others who will be so discourage with their own lives that they try to discourage others.

You are unique. 
There are many people who are too scared to live their own lives, who only look for someone to blame because they aren't in control of their own lives or destiny. 
Never let those who are fearful play such a big part of your life, that you fear making the moves you feel in your spirit are necessary to make.

Let rid of the pain, the judgment, the drama, the fear, and let go of the people who only empower these things to take a hold of you in your life. 
Be different, and be around those who aren't afraid to be the same, different.

Happiness is a Perfume

Monday, January 14, 2013


Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.

But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.

And whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

Life is about Balance

Life is all about balance,

good and evil

disappointment and hope.

Every time I am so disappointed by human flaws,

something happens and I am equally awed by people,

then my hope is restored once again.

First Thought for 2013

Your New Year will mostly depend on what you take into it and what you leave behind, the most important being your mindset.
