Be Yourself

Do not be phony in your relationship, trying to be someone or something different as a way to please your mate. For a relationship to work, both people need to be themselves and react to things naturally. Just imagine if you are really kind of on the silly side, enjoying life to the fullest. Then you meet a wonderful person who is much more conservative than you are. Because you are attracted to them, you try to squelch your normal vibrant personality. You are miserable and eventually, the person is going to be exposed to the real you. You have to base any relationship on honesty or it will eventually fall apart.

Every person on the face of the Earth

Every person on the face of the Earth has some kind of history, or baggage, although at varying levels. Do not walk into a relationship with your arms loaded with that baggage. The past is the past. Even though there are things from the past that are hurtful, and even damaging, learn from those things and come out a better and stronger person. This allows you to step into a new relationship with better knowledge of what not to do. Leave the baggage from the past alone, focus on today, and look forward to tomorrow.

We all lose friends

We all lose friends.. we lose them in death, to distance and over time. But even though they may be lost, hope is not. The key is to keep them in your heart, and when the time is right, you can pick up the friendship right where you left off. Even the lost find their way home when you leave the light on.

I'm thinking that sometimes...

I'm thinking that sometimes you just have to make the decision to be happy. Just realize that things aren't ever what you hoped they'd be. Not ever. For anybody. The only thing that separates one kind of person from another is that there are some who stay angry about it and there are some who accept what comes their way.

shadows of my past

Every night -
I watch shadows on the wall
Sometimes I see glimpses of my past;
Some haunt me, some taunt me -
And some make me smile.

Some nights -
I lay in bed, awake and restless
Shadowed thoughts and memories
Hovering like dark clouds over my present
Threatening to ruin the future.

Some nights
I lay in bed, my heart rejoicing
The blessed moments of my life
Played on the screen of my mind loop
Discarding the threats to my future.

You're not done

You're not done. You're a work in progress. You don't know what tomorrow will bring. It could be anything. Absolutely anything! It could be good. It could be bad. You don't know because you're not done. You won't know the point of the book until it's written... the book that is your life. It's a work in progress. You are unfinished! 

Negative words

Don't let negative words that someone else told you, have an impact on the rest of your life.

Celebrate the breath of life

No matter what age you are
- you are still learning
- you are still growing
- you are still changing
Celebrate the breath of life

Too often, we put our lives on hold

Too often, we put our lives on hold.We will take that trip when the kids are grown. We will go back school when we save more money. I will go back to school when I have free time, etc., etc. We come up with excuses to postpone things. meanwhile, time is going by. Before we know it, so much time has passed away that we end up using that as an excuse. Don't wait! If there is something that you have always wanted to do, find a way to do it. Don't miss out on your life!

Hey you

Hey you. Yes, you, stop being unhappy with yourself.You are perfect. Stop wishing that you look like someone else or wishing people liked you as much as they like someone else. Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you. Stop hating your body, your face, your personality, your quirks. Love them. Without those things your wouldn't be you; and why would you want to be anyone else? Be confident with who you are. Smile. It'll draw people in. If anyone hates on you because you are happy with yourself, that's their problem. tell yourself that your happiness will not depend on other's anymore. Say to yourself: "I am happy because I love who I am! I love my flaws. I love my imperfections They make me 'ME', and 'ME' is pretty amazing!

Life's too short to wait

Life's too short to wait.

What is essential is invisible to the human eye

It is with the heart that one can see rightly, for what is essential is invisible to the human eye.

One of the greatest freedoms

One of the greatest freedoms is truly not caring what everyone else thinks of you.

Compare yourself to who you were yesterday

You will never fully believe in yourself if you keep comparing yourself to everyone else. Instead, compare yourself to who you were yesterday.

It's nice to have money

It's nice to have money and the things that money can buy, but it's also important to make sure you haven't lost track of the things that money can't buy.

Death is not the greatest loss

Death is not the greatest loss in life; The greatest loss is what dies inside while you're still alive.

Don't let anyone walk through your mind with their dirty feet

Don't let anyone walk through your mind with their dirty feet.

Saying goodbye

Saying goodbye is one of the most painful ways to solve a problem. But sometimes it's necessary.

Be yourself

In a world where you can be anything you want, BE YOURSELF.

Don't be afraid of change

Don't be afraid of change. Oftentimes you will lose something good, and then gain something even better.

The hard times will pass

Sometimes it looks like everything is falling apart and all you do fails, but you have to stay strong. Night is always darkest before the dawn and your life is just the same - the hard times will pass, everything will get better and the sun will shine brighter than ever.

Don't make yourself miserable

Sometimes in your quest to make everyone else happy, you make yourself miserable.

It's the affection that matters, not the perfection

Never walk away from someone when you see some faults. Have patience and realize that nobody is perfect. It's the affection that matters, not the perfection.

Find someone who isn't afraid to admit that they miss you

Find someone who isn't afraid to admit that they miss you. Someone who knows that you're not perfect, but treats you as if you are. Someone who's biggest fear is losing you. Someone who gives their heart completely. Someone who says "I love you" and means it. Last but not the least, find someone who wouldn't mind waking up with you in the morning, seeing your wrinkles and your gray hair but still falls in love with you all over again...

Being able to wait is a sign of true love and patience

Being able to wait is a sign of true love and patience. Anyone can say "I love you", but not everyone can wait and prove that it's true.

Saints and sinners

Every saint has a past and every sinners has a future.

Relationships are like glasses

Relationships are like glasses. Sometimes it's better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting it back together.

Words and hearts

Words and hearts should be handled with care for words when spoken and hearts when broken are the hardest things to repair.

stealing from your company ...

Are you stealing from your company? and our response to that? “Of course not!” or you can even say, “How dare you ask me if I’m stealing from my company? I am not a thief!” and i'll say it was just my way to "knock on your door" to make a way for this topic.

But if we come to think about it, we steal from our company when:

1) We use company time for personal use like Facebooking, internet-chatting, internet-surfing which is not work-ralated.

2) We use office space and company-paid time to gossip.

3) We pretend to be doing our sales call when in fact we are just watching t.v. or we're out dating during office hours.

4) We withhold the best from our company and we are just giving a mediocre performance .

5) We do not represent our company well. Our company loses opportunities, is robbed of a good reputation, it’s credibility is also affected.

If one of the above hit you, isn't it time for you to think?

Be a blessing in the workplace today!

work and marriage

I attended a silver wedding anniversary recently and I was requested to share a short tips for marriage. Sometime during the reception, the couple introduced a waiter who has been with the restaurant for the past 25 years and was there when the couple got married a quarter of a century back. What's the secret of the couple's staying power in their union, and the waiter's endurance at work? Let me share with you my "recipe" for staying forever in marriage forever and hopefully in your place of work for a significant number of years.

Forgive. You're not perfect anyway, so why not forgive those who are also imperfect like you.
Obey God, obey rules. You'll never go wrong and you won't get short-changed when you stick to the rules.
Refuse to regret. If you'll go to work regretting that you are working for that company, why not just resign. If you can't change your work right not, might as well change your attitude about your work.
Enjoy. Each working day is a gift from God. Enjoy it. A person who enjoys what he or she is doing is also enjoyable to work with.
Value others highly. Think of others highly. Talk to them with respect. Valuing others means doing acts of kindness to them.
Enrich others and yourself as well. When you work for others, you must contribute productively to your team. Enriching others would require continuous growth on your part as well.
Rejoice in God always. The Bible tells us that we should rejoice in the Lord always. A cheerful worker attracts new friendships and business opportunities. Work with joy and be amazed at how fruitful you can be in the workplace.

Not all of us will work forever in just 1 company but stay long enough to be a blessing where the Lord has called and planted you.

let your light shine

Like a dark cloud hovering over the sky, the feelings creep in, drowning all sense of reality. You sometimes wonder if anyone really cares for you. In a stream of painful memories, everything comes back with a renewed vengeance. All the hurt and emotions are so overwhelming and intense that they pull you deeper into the valley of misery until you can stand it no longer. You want to scream, but only a numbness remains, leaving you empty and without feeling. Remember that the darkest hour is just before dawn, and like everything else, it too will pass. Don’t turn your back to the light. Break free from your darkness and seek the strength within. Lift the clouds of despair and let the light shine through to your heart, because it is loved and cherished more than you know.

your life, your own

One thing that we must all come to terms with when dealing with life is knowing that there will always be those who will judge us, even if they know nothing about us. It truthfully is the people that know us the least are sometimes the people that may judge us the most.

We must also learn to accept that despite being judged by others, they matter not in the least bit, because no one is perfect. No one will ever be perfect enough to judge anyone else, and therefore the only judgment we should ever worry about is the judgment of our God.

Never live life in fear of disappointing others, because no matter what you do by the end of your life you will have been a disappointment to at least one person, and many people will have been a disappointment to you.

Make your life your own, by being you in every circumstance. Make your own name and your own decisions!

inside sparks

Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice... Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant. There is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.

give up or hold on

All our fights and challenges makes us stronger. That's where you can tell that we are alive. No matter what happens, you make it through. Each person has insecurities and character flaws that they have to get past and it's a decision to make you and mold you to a better individual and reach a place of understanding and acceptance. It's a test of how strong you are as a person. You either give up or hold on for dear life...

moving on

“You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened... or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move on. You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It wont happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.”

Sometimes I wish I could read minds

Sometimes I wish I could read minds - not to see what people thinks of me, but to make sure that I don't waste my time with who don't care..

Your life... Live it!

There is nothing worse than letting your life be controlled by other people. This is your life, Live it your way.

Two hands

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

love within the heart

Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation!….Rumi

new woman

I am the new woman. I am strong, enlightened and awakened. I will not be tied down any more because I am free spirited and I have learned to fight back and survive on my own terms. I am charming and enticing and I can delight you with my effervescent personality. I can enchant you with my exuberance and deep sense of soulful connections. I love freely and unconditionally. I have a vision which is unique and magnificent. Nothing in this world can stop me from being an achiever in any field I want to master

life's worth

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.  So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe things happen for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

you are YOU!

So many tears have been cried from the disrespect, the unhappiness and the abuse that many have faced throughout their lives and those tears are not to be cried no more. The only tears to be ever cried are tears of happiness and joy and for the new beginning of living your life the way you want to live. Nobody has any kind of right to walk all over you and try to control you. Nobody has any kind of right to bully you and abuse you. You are beautiful and unique in every way; you are special and everyday is your beautiful day. You have pride, dignity, and true love within your heart, you own it and that is never to be taken away.
