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.

Hard work now and play later.

Hi friends, Happy Motivational Monday!

Needs vs Wants… or can we say the necessities vs the Luxuries.

I remember in elementary school when we learned the difference. Needs were : shelter (place to live), food, clothes and transportation. The wants were an extension of the needs. Like I “wanted” an expensive car, I’d love to eat lobster as much as I wanted, top name brands for clothes and I wanted a mansion with a staff. Hmmm some of that still sounds the same in my adult life, don’t Judge me LOL

There are things that I’m coming to terms with in regards to Needs vs Wants. My goals are to Own a Home, have financial comfort/freedom, leave a legacy for my child (and future children), have an organization to help people and to feel better as I battle MS. On the other end, I yearn to travel more. I want to visit more states, I want my family to see the beauty of our world. I know with hard work, all these things are possible but it takes time. The money it takes to do those things cost and I could save for it but what about the house? Or what about the student loan debt?

As a MS patient, I get nervous at times for the future. Meaning, I don’t know how strong my legs will be 10 years from now. Would I be crushed that I can’t travel the way that I want? Is there a chance that traveling may become a hassle? These can be considered extreme realities but as we all know, MS is unpredictable, therefore, it could happen. Due to those thoughts that run through my mind, I always have this attitude of “wanting to do, while I can”. I honestly can say that it is a struggle in my head. Like my DH said, “there isn’t anything wrong with having a bucket list but you still have to prepare for it”. This is the most realistic thing I’ve been told in a while.

In five to ten years from now, I’d like to say that my family has traveled to Africa, gone on vacations more than six times in a year, however I would LOVE to say that we have our Home, we are almost done with Student loans, my children have a substantial amount of money in their accounts.

I don’t know what the future holds, or when the good Lord will call me home, but I rather know that I left my loved ones financially comfortable instead of debts to close out.

Friends, have you gone through this? Do you struggle with your needs and wants as well? Let me know in the comments! Thanks so much for reading and sharing!

Strolling into Monday like….

Good morning!

You have purpose. Own it.

Not everyone will understand or be supportive and that’s ok. What’s for you, Is For You. That means with the journey, you have to continue to push through for greatness.

Will it be easy? Nope. However, any journey or goal worth experiencing does not come fast and easy.

Have a Great Day Friends!

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!

Real recognize real 

When you start to create a plan for a business or new adventure, we often share this with our friends. Now, some people won’t always support you until you are “on” or are already have a buzz going and sometimes you shouldn’t always get upset about that. The truth is, they are human and feel that they will believe it when they see it. However, to try to believe in you being successful or giving motivation is one way to know your friend is really your friend. 

I often to say: “when one friend win, we all win”. Seeing a best friend accomplish a goal, motivates me to aim high as well. There is no room for jealousy or envy. They worked hard and it paid off! Real friends sometimes can see your talents before you and that’s something that you can’t take for granted. 

To my friends that support me and are waiting for me to take that leap of faith, I thank you and appreciate your love and support!

Motivate your Monday

Hi, great people! Thank you for stopping by! 

It’s President’s day and I’m off from work. Whenever I have time off, I tend to do a lot of thinking. I think about my goals in life, my family, my health and what steps I need to get there. 

What about you guys? Do you make goals for the week and find the time to execute them? Yes, we all get busy with Life but remember, your needs matter. We get wrapped into our families and jobs, but tend to forget ourselves. 

I encourage you to write down one of your goals. Share it with someone (that could be me 😊) and let them hold you accountable. Once you achieve it, I guarantee you will feel so proud of yourself.

Thanks for reading friends! Please feel free to follow me on my social media pages which are listed under “widgets”.

Monday blues

Hi friends!

If you are like me, this is a question that is constantly being questioned. Over and over the wheels turn, so work gets done but then…. nothing. We get back into the same routine and get upset all over again.

Accountability. The only thing we have that makes the hard work stick to us like glue. 

Going forward from here, if I have short term goals I will give myself deadlines, speak out to loved ones and confess if it was done. 

Things will work out friends but we have to believe it.

Nicole Cherise ❤️
