Two major ingredients for your success 

Patience and Understanding are two ingredients needed for success in your life. This can be in your faith, relationships, parenting, and career paths.

Patience, as we all know is a Virtue. It does not come easy for most of us. We want things quick and easy, but that’s just not possible if you want things to blossom into beautiful results. Just like a rose garden, plant the seeds, nourish them with water, pray for plenty of sun and then slowly but surely, roses will sprout! We have to remind ourselves that the wait will be worth it. 

Understanding is key as well. We need to know the goal and all it entails. Understand your position is and others around you that play a role. What’s everyone’s state of mind and abilities? Having compassion, empathy can help with the process of your Success.

What are you thoughts friends? Do you think Patience and Understanding are needed for Success in many aspects of life? Speak on it below ☺️

Boundaries?


Boundaries. People Do not understand them and it has to be addressed. 

I don’t believe that all people who overstep their boundary do it to be Petty or purposely but it does happen. This can be your family, significant other, friends, coworkers etc..
People need to understand that you don’t have to give explanations for your decisions or your feelings on life topics. You are an adult and if you respect their boundaries, then the same should be given back. 
Do you have this issue friends? Have you ever had to tell someone(s) they are overstepping their boundaries?

Write your Own love story

When you are in a committed relationship, we all have our lists of do’s and Don’ts. Some are from past relationships or examples of relationships that we have seen. It’s all good! However, you have to concentrate on writing your own love story from Your perspective only. 



Of course, I can sit and say that my parents were married for a 44 years, they set the example of hard working and did a great job raising 2 kids. The truth is, what worked for them may not necessarily work for Steve and I. Guess what? That’s ok. 

People, fantasize over the perfect marriage/courtship, and comparing it fairytales. Marriage isn’t perfect, it takes hard work from Both individuals. Just like in fairy tales, tragedy and triumph can take place, therefore, just Write your own. Develop your character in your relationship before determining how the story is “suppose” to flow. Then combine the two for the incredible journey.

I hope this helps! Thanks for reading!

Where is the Love Wednesdays: balance.

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday to all. 

In our busy lives and schedules, sometimes we can get overwhelmed by the amount of places that we all have to be at once. It’s hectic and without organization, we can truly go crazy. If you are in a relationship with someone or have a family, this can be a challenge as well. What can we do? Find a Balance.


Finding a Balance in our lives helps keep us not only sane but it gives a sense of stability. We have significant others, children, elderly parents, demanding jobs/businesses, meetings, down time with friends and so on. I recommend prioritizing and go from there. 

What are your priorities? 


In my life, my list is: Faith, Family and Career. My faith is my intimate relationship with God. I need that for strength as I battle Multiple Sclerosis, life set backs and guidance to name a few.

Family, comes first! Friends are my personal picked family so they are included. My husband and son comes first no matter what. They are my back bones and their happiness and loyalty means the world to me. Therefore, I can’t put them on the back burner or place things that hold No value over them and their Needs. Of course my extended family and best friends are next in importance because I love them and they are my support system. 

Career is important because it’s how we bring home the bacon lol. Rather it’s a 9-5 job or opportunities for entrepreneurship, what we produce are a representation of us. 

Sometimes when there are distractions or an imbalance of things in your life, someone or something can feel neglected. That’s the last thing that we ever want to do. So, set your own priority list and stick to it. Communicate your intentions and goals and I’m sure all will work 😊.  I hope this helps someone today that may struggle in their area of life.

Thanks for reading friends!

Insomnia….

Perfectly IMPERFECT! My mind is constantly pondering, that’s why the insomnia nights happen. Lover, fighter, Goody-goody, naive, forgiver, dramatic, sensitive, daydreamer, that walks around like a butterfly. Waiting, praying hoping that I can make a difference one day. I’ll continue to fight, but once the gloves are off, I’m off……Lord, lead me, guide me, protect us from Evil that is known and unknown. I’m delicate not complicated and never can be duplicated. 

Motivational Mondays: You are your own competition.

Hi friends! Happy Monday to you!

I know from time to time we plan goals or start a vision board and we are excited for the journey! However, with life’s distractions, sometimes the journey never takes off. I believe the saying, “your biggest enemy is the person staring back at you in the mirror”. 

When we view ourselves, we are tough critics, we can be in denial, and we also lie to ourselves. These behaviors are what crashes the dreams and put a holt to achieving goals. Therefore, we have to choose to compete with ourselves. 

We have to set daily affirmations. We can place them in our journals, tape quotes in our personal corner,we can purchase wall decor that inspires us to thrive as well. 

That small voice or that continued recording that’s says “you can’t win” needs to become smaller and ultimately absent. When we are doing this, we are competing with our biggest opponent. 

Doing these tasks will Not be easy. However, nothing in life is. Keep your eye on the prize and you will prove to Yourself that you got what it takes!

Have a good day, thanks for reading!
