Where is the love Wednesdays: feeling unappreciated 

  
No one likes to feel like they are being taken for granted, but the reality is that we all do it so much that’s it’s just become a part of life. 

Those who are closest to you, don’t appreciate your acts of kindness or your never-ending support but the moment you stop doing your good deeds, the world ends to them. This feeling is very annoying but don’t change who you are. 

If there is anything that should change, let it be your circle of people. If your significant other, friend or relative is constantly making you feel u appreciated, nothing is wrong with disconnecting those relationships. Days are long but the years are short and no one has time to put energy into those who don’t deserve it.

Motivational Monday’s: be Brave

  
At some point in our lives we will hit that brick wall. We may feel like there are no corners to turn or no way to climb ourselves out. This feeling may be due to illness, death, relationship issues, financial burdens, jobs etc.. Things don’t just go away however, be brave enough to buckle your boot straps and to face your problem head on. Will things be easy? Of course not but it won’t break you. We are stronger than we think. Please believe a shift will come your way, stay strong.

Feel good Friday’s: pushing through life’s obstacles 

Hi all!

When I think about all that I encounter daily, what gives me the most humbling experience is pushing through challenges. Let’s face it, life is and can be unfair. Challenges will arise in your life and some will make you feel like you hit a brick wall. So what do you do? Keep going!

As a MS Warrior, I have days where walking is a difficult task to do. I’ve cried, been angry and had self-pity MOMENTS but they can’t last long. If we feed those negative vibes and energy to ourselves, it will be our new cognitions. So do what you need: pray, meditate, yoga, watch a comedy, go to the gym to blow off steam, write, call someone, speak to a support group or me *wink*, etc. You need to do whatever it takes for you to transition out of that obstacle. 

  
This is a collage that I made last night and shared to social media.  Could you believe that just three weeks ago I couldn’t use my left leg efficiently and had a limp? Believe it friends, I’m just like you, a fighter. We have to claim victory because we CAN’T lose. 

Keep your chin up and head in the game. No worries, things will get better. Keep going. 

Enjoy your day and Happy 4th of July weekend!

Where is the love Wednesdays : cheating forgiveness and your partner wanting you to forget

Hey all!

So I was listening to “ask Angela Yee” on the breakfast club this morning and a guy called asking what to do about the lack of love he is receiving from his lady. He was questioning should he leave the relationship or stay and “do him”? Later he revealed that he cheated in the past and she forgave him but has still been cold and distant. 

My response is this: once you have cheated on someone the trust is broken and needs to be repaired. Every time your partner looks at you they could have flashes of you looking and touching another the same way. That is not an easy pill to swallow. However, they looked deep in their hearts and forgave you. 

You MUST be patient with your significant other. You can’t just have this “I said sorry so get over it attitude”. That is another selfish act of you when you do that. We all handle things differently and getting cheated on to some is like grieving because of piece of them died (trust) and things won’t be the same. 

Hope does prevail though. If your partner was able to forgive, I suggest that you do all that is possible so that you are NOT in a position to cheat again, treat your man or woman like the King and Queen that they are, give the security that it is all about you both to move forward, and be PATIENT to just to name a few. If you can’t do this or think it’s too much then let them go. 

On the other side, if you DID decide to forgive your partner for cheating it doesn’t mean you should forget but you do have find a way to move past their indiscretion. I’m not saying the next day you act like nothing has happened but if you throw it in their face everyday maybe you should re-think if you truly forgive them. If it’s too hard it’s ok for it to be a deal breaker no matter how much it hurts. You have to do what’s best for you and your sanity. 

What are your thoughts?

Motivational Monday’s: things will get better

   I know at times we all feel like we are up against a wall with no where to turn or run to. Please believe that relief is on the way. Sometimes when things are falling apart, it’s possible that they are actually falling into place. 

Keep your chin up and don’t give up!
