Our attitude will and always will be Everything

I believe we are heavily connected to the universe. Spiritual, physical, mental and emotional values make us who we are. With knowing that, our attitude means everything for us.

If a person views things only negatively, then more than likely he/she would be surrounded with negative energy. On the contrary, someone with positive energy will attract positivity.

I know life is tough and it’s not fair, however, let’s try to see the silver lining in some of our daily situations. Easier said than done, but at least we can take the first step with a better attititude.

Sometimes it IS all in our heads

Time and time again we hear this tape that runs through our head filled with doubts. We tell ourselves what we Can’t do, how we won’t be successful, we say that we fail at everything, we won’t find Love, or that our goals will never be accomplished.

We grow bitter, angry, we’re constantly on edge. We sometimes even blame others for why we are slacking. This same tape says: “it’s Us against the World” when in reality, it’s US against Ourselves.

It is ALL IN OUR HEADS because we put it there.

Is this you? Has this been you? When did you realize that enough was enough? I realized this tape that I put into my head a while ago and trust it takes time to work through this process. Hold on Dear Friends, you are not alone!

Blind Faith

Keeping the faith when you can’t see the end result. We are visual creatures and are skeptical if we are told the dream, but don’t see the success in the palm of our hands. That’s when blind faith Steps In.

Blind Faith.. A necessity with any phase of life. We need it for our families, our relationships and career. I believe that we have a blueprint set for us and we will endure the challenges/turmoil along the way, but keeping that blind faith is what can help us succeed.

Is this easy to grasp? NOPE! Is it worth it? Yes. Hold on Friends, we WILL make it. We WILL Win! We got this!

4/13/2010, MSanniversary

Today is a day that I will always remember because it was the day my life changed forever. “You have MS, Nicole” were words that made me scared and relieved at the same time. After not being to operate my legs, numbness in my hands and feet, weakness in my limbs, I felt relief that I wasn’t crazy. Can you imagine having to tell yourself to pick up your foot as you walk? Or not realizing that you are holding a cup because you couldn’t feel it in your hand? I knew I had to get tough and battle this diagnosis. I never knew how strong I was until being strong was the only option. I have my cheerful days and I Also have days of being scared. Scared that if this disease progresses having the ability to walk or needing assistance like some of my other fellow MS Warriors. I feel like maybe that’s my purpose in life, to inspire others who may think they are alone with any health diagnosis and encourage them to keep going. My faith and relationship with the Lord grew deeper. My family and SOME of my friends bonds grew closer. I’ve met some amazing people on this journey and look forward to a CURE!!

Better>Bitter

The past few weeks, I’ve observed negativity amongst people. I wasn’t involved but if I were, I’d tell the individuals to be BETTER not BITTER.

I’ve come to a realization that getting Bitter or getting “even” with folks requires so much energy. If I’m going to use any energy aka spoons (spoonies standup!), it needs to be serving a real purpose not for meaningless drama. Life is short, we all KNOW this but still continue to waste time.

If there is anything that I can leave with you all today it is to : BE BETTER because we all KNOW better.

Take Care friends, thanks for reading!

Where is the Love Wednesday edition: A friend… then A Lover

How many of us really can say we took the time to let a friendship blossom before wanting the Romance with a significant other?

Take a moment to let that Sink in.

Significant other…. What makes them Significant? Best friend(s)… why are they the Best? We don’t take enough time in these categories, especially when it comes to romance. Don’t get me wrong, nothing is wrong with getting swept off your feet, or feeling it was love at first sight because for many that is their love story. Like anything in life, plant the seed, nurture it and watch the growth that takes place.

Has this been you? Have you been haste to enter a romantic relationship and then it failed abruptly? Were you friends? Let me know your thoughts friends!Thanks for reading!

Fear No One

There comes a time in life when you have to stand up for yourself and put fear aside. Many people will use their power to control people. I can admit, whenever I’ve dealt with anyone above me, there was this sense of nervousness. Some people I felt were even Bullies… It didn’t change until one of my superiors told me one day, “I’m human like you”.

Hearing those words made me realize that the “higher ups” and powerful people do cry, they do have worries, they do experience Defeat. Meanwhile, I just always assumed their Life was GRAND. That was day I also told myself to only Fear God.period.

I share this because we need to remember: No One should hold fear in our hearts. Your superiors, rather its at home or at work, are to be Respected, Not Feared. These people can get hurt and bleed just like you and me. Never let anyone make you feel as if you are Nothing. You’re worth matters even if it doesn’t seem like it.
