Clear Vision

Sometimes people can be a hindrance and a help. While their intentions may be good, the actual effect it leaves isn’t. For those who never had good intentions to begin with, it can cause even more conflict. Learn to be accepting of criticism, but cautious of hatred. There is nothing worse than getting so caught…

Focus on the Ending

I think we have all had our fair share of self-reflection sessions that end up being more negative than positive. We look at all the things we didn’t do that could’ve brought about a different outcome or at least placed you further ahead. I’ve gotten so down and upset about my previous thoughts and actions,…

Utilizing Your Gift

For the longest I passed up on opportunities to share, improve, or even to accept my gift. I saw it as something given to me for me and I was wrong. There are things people could’ve avoided, learned from or even just felt encouraged by me sharing my gift. Since learning that, I have worked…

Check Yourself for Toxins

I can recall being younger and seeing that my grandmother always had a garden. She loved plants and flowers and would sometimes grow vegetables that she would use to cook with. One of the reasons I want a house is to recreate that garden and to grow my own produce. Every so often her plants…

Attain Success

Good morning! So many times I shied away from going after certain opportunities due to what I thought was a lack of experience and a lack of education. In actuality, it was a lack of self-confidence and fear of rejection. The day I discovered that most people in higher positions were under-qualified and lacked the…

Patience

Why are we in such a rush to reach our goals, when we aren’t even sure if we’re moving in the right direction. Patience is a virtue. Would you eat your food before it was fully prepared? Don’t rush the process, you could be setting yourself up for failure. What is meant for you won’t…

Routine

As the new year is approaching, many of us have a list of resolutions we plan to start at the 1st of the year. Plan and start now! Do something as simple as starting a daily routine and be consistent. Get in the habit of creating balance and holding yourself accountable for getting something done….
