Trust and betrayal side by side

Sometimes the hardest thing to do after being betrayed is learning to trust again. For some it does not come easy when they end up extremely adhering to "Love all...but trust one"  which can lead to them being bitter and distant to even trustworthy people.

However, everything has got its balance. I think distrust in moderation is a good tactic that can shield us from getting hurt when used well. Nevertheless, there are times we need to learn to trust others again or gain their trust.

Last but not least, know the difference between when it time to move on and throw out the "trash" after betrayal; and when it is actually time to recycle that "trash".

Confidence and its beauty...

It might not be the easiest thing to be...the whole world seems to scream and set a standard of what you should and should not be. However, deep inside of know there is a real wonderful you. A you that does not have to let others down or boast in order to get noticed. There is a you that has a lot of potential waiting to be released, and when given the chance will humbly shine.
There is no use to compare ourselves to others in regards of money, beauty, brains or whatever as we are all unique. So let us be confident indeed today and believe in the greater individuality that lies within us.
Thanks again for your support everybody and let me know if you have questions or suggestions...Good day!

Comparison is sometimes fatal...

It is possible that at one point or another of our lives we have compared ourselves to others. Comparison might seem as a healthy habit as sometimes we are urged to do so in order to evaluate our progress in a school or work setting. However, too much of a good thing can turn into a bad thing.

For instance, if we compare ourselves too much to others no matter what we have we will never be grateful. We might begin to feel inadequate then resentful or bitter.So let us strive to appreciate our uniqueness and be our best at letting "us" shine out. In such a way we can truly celebrate others victories while preparing our own different ones.

Inner understanding leads to outer understanding

Sometimes we complain and throw a fit about how certain people or things make us feel uncomfortable. We should not let the discomfort end there, but we should take time to do inner reflection in order to learn more about ourselves so we can find an effective way to confront the issue or person wisely.
Understanding is indeed an important skill in life...whether at work or play or with family, friends or lovers. So we should definitely  make sure we have an open understanding in order to live life wisely, and of course to the full.

The gift of time

Time is one of the most important things that can help us in life. I sometimes waste too much of my time overplanning. Sometimes I waste my time doubting myself...or even sleeping. All of those ways and many other time wasters like anger, hatred and envy in the end just make us "rob ourselves" of the gift of time. So in whatever you wanna do be mindful of time and use it well....Time is the free coin that cannot be rebought.

Thanks everyone again for all the support. Happy Monday!

Listening from the heart...

Sometimes it seems that speakers are highly valued in everyday life. Speaking is indeed a wonderful art when done well at the right time with the right words to the right person. Along, with speaking, listening is also a part of speech that should not be forgotten as it helps to foster effective communication. I love to speak to different people about different things but I am now learning that I have to listen well in order to not interrupt people, and also to gauge the course of the conversation. So indeed let's remember the old saying that "we have 2 ears and 2 eyes  but only 1 mouth."

Unraveling the self destruction that steams from jealousy and envy.....

 I think there are times that we find it easier to not celebrate the victories of others. Instead of channeling that energy in wishing the worst for others who are doing well...or having a low self esteem because someone can do something better than us; we should channel that energy into congratulating them first, then doing a lot of soul searching in order for us to discover what are the inner giants inside of us we can awaken in order to reach excellence.

Expecting, expected and expectations!

Sometimes when we do good things for people...a big or small part feels like we will receive good from that very person in the future. It is not easy to develop a mindset of being less expecting of people, however it is one of the easiest ways to lessen your disappointment.
So today let us just simply love and give with no we can happy. And, of course put hate aside, worries of course which are like "a rocking chair which gives you something to do but takes you nowhere.
Great Weekend everybody!

Hope for today and tomorrow....

Have you ever felt like stopping? Everyday in life as we go about our life we are faced with the decision of whether to give up or go on with the hope of something better. The interesting thing is that nature provides an answer to that question as even when the sun's light disappears...the star's light emerges with rays of hope. So don't lose your hope today!

Meditate and plan on

I was thinking about my life today. I have lately been disorganized...the dreaded word "scatterbrain." Do you know that feeling of wanting to do so much and only ending up to do so little? Yes, that happens in life. That is why it is important to meditate before taking action. So as you go about your daily chores and cares today...remember to take time back to meditate on what you have done or want to do.

Thanks for all the views everybody and Great day!

Humility is a treasure

Today I am pondering on humility. What makes us proud? Why do we sometimes compares ourselves to others in order to feel better? I bet a psychologist or someone with a good head on their shoulders would know. As for now, I don't know...I know I just want to be humble...I want to be in the valley.
Great day everyone!

Making the best of Time

Time is one of the most important gifts that we have on earth. There is so much we can do with the time we have if we choose to. Maybe when we were younger we were not as time conscious and could spend hours sometimes doing useless things. However, as we mature we realize through deadlines in school, at work and other places the importance of time.
One thing in regards to time is that sometimes starting early is the best thing to do. Of course, in whatever endeavour that is one must start early while also taking into consideration the associated pros and cons. Nevertheless, we all have boundless potential to rise in whatever area we are gifted in. But in order to reach there we have to determine to use our time wisely....beginning today...not tomorrow or the day after but today!
Last but not least don't forget to make time in your life for  your loved ones...remember people are irreplaceable and valuable than money and other things we spend our time on.

What in the world do I do with anger?

I don't know how often you all face this emotion. I have known some people who used to not get as angry quickly but now constantly  battle against it. One of the guiding  principles of life I guess is acknowledging that there is a problem. So if you are getting angry quickly and staying angry for a long time...and it could be either at yourself, others or is time to ponder on this emotion.
Sometimes we might possibly convince ourselves that we enjoy being angry due to different factors. However, in the long run anger damages us and robs us of all other pleasant emotions. So when we get angry we have to realize that we have to find a way to deal with the anger in a constructive manner. For some people it could be writing down their thoughts, for others it is maybe counting to ten while maybe for others it involves immediately confronting the matter.
In whatever you do, please remember that anger is an emotion that when fed on leads to a lot of bad things. Angry people kill, rob, and even hurt people in the heat of the moment even if they were angelic. That is why we need to not shy away from helping ourselves and others to deal with anger.
Happy day!

Gratitude is like a boomerang!

Today I was watching Passions,  a soap opera that I used to watch like 13 years ago. I enjoyed the drama and noticed a lot of stuff I hadn't ever thought of before. And, out of nowhere I began to feel a sense of gratitude. I began to feel so grateful to have a family, health, a job and much more.
Honestly, when watching these soap operas there are actually moments that can help you reflect on life. For me today, it was just realizing how thankful I am to have a sound mind, food, clothes, shelter and much more! More than that, I desire to not only use the blessings I attain in my life for me; but for others so they can also have such moments of gratitude.
So no matter what you are going through today....take a minute and think about what you already have before allowing gloom, jeaolousy, envy or despair to imprison you. And you might be surprised that being thankful and having an attitude of gratitude towards others ends up giving you a great sense of peace and satisfaction.
Happy Saturday!

Goals and realities

I am pretty sure that growing up you all might have heard the saying, "You can be anything you dream of". However, such a phrase does not give much more information about the realities involved when striving to attain a goal. I think the quote should not only put emphasis on a dream but dreams. Because as we move on in life in pursuit of our dream; there are times we'll realize we can't achieve that dream....but if we have dreams then we can focus on those instead of despairing over what could have been.
 So if we don't achieve our goals or dreams we should not give in to bitterness towards ourselves or those who have accomplished what we wanted to do. We should instead transform our disappointment into a dynamic energy to help us pick up the pieces from the broken dream and make them into a wonderful tapestry in an achievable dream.
Great weekend everybody!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's day everyone! Whether you have a significant other or not remember it is all about love. Everyday we have a chance to show love to a known or unknown person. So from today let us go out there and love....and love. Because by the way hate is first we might think it satisfactory but it rather leads to self-destruction. So we might as well just LOVE!!!
Good day y'all!

Love in the air!

Hello everybody, I know it has been a long time since I have been on here. Today we are going to talk about love. In a song by Michael Jackson he once famously said, "I am a lover and not a fighter". I really like the quote above as it adds a spin by saying"I'll fight for what I love". So yeah! for all those in love or looking for love...remember it is okay to fight to keep that love. A good example would be for those in long distance relationships. If anyone of you has been in one or heard of one... I am sure you all know it takes a lot of "fighting". So for all those in long distance relationships separated by an hour to a mile or even a time zone....there is your shoutout : Long distance by Brandy

Early Happy Valentine's day lovers!
