Be Productive

Happy Monday friends!

For many, Monday symbolizes the start of the work week. We have to hustle and bustle to meet deadlines etc.. however, sometimes the Monday blues brings us into a slump. We may feel lazy and unaccomplished.

I, too, get into a slump and often feel overwhelmed. I try to remind myself that I’m not perfect and if I at least try to complete something for the day, then I was productive.

As a MS patient, getting out of the bed can be a challenging task. Some days I truly run out of spoons (spoon theory) because I don’t have the energy. Therefore, I try to keep a positive attitude and do the best that I can.

That’s all we can do. Try to conquer a goal for the day. That can be smiling when someone gives a good morning greeting, take a walk for break, exercise, begin the starting steps to owning your business, and more! Whatever it is and what ever it takes, just try.

I hope this helps someone. Remember, we are in this life journey together. There are others who feel just like you do. I’m here.

Don’t let them put fear in your heart

Hi friends

I know we live during a time that bullying and people in superior roles can do a lot of intimidating to those they feel are beneath them. However, We have to continue to stand our ground while being respectful.

One thing that I’m learning, is that life is difficult and people will try to make your life difficult as well. We have to choose PEACE over anything. I don’t know about you guys but when there is no peace in my heart, I do not function well nor do I give any task my best performance. It’s just added baggage that I can’t deal with.

I remember a time that my heart would race rapidly whenever I had to speak to someone in a role superior than myself. It was until I developed my own relationship with the Lord and a lot of those fears dwindled down. In a similar post, I realized that people are people but God is God. God is the only One to Fear.

If this is hard for you, please take a breather. Remember, people have to breathe, eat, and sleep just like You. They bleed, experience heartache just like You. Regardless of the amount of money that make or where they live, we are all have a life journey and Fear isn’t an Option.

Fight against the insecurities

Yes, it’s time to get All the way over ourselves. Ladies, compliment one another. Yes, there is another attractive woman in the same room with you. Y’all both are fly queens, remember that. Fellas, you Do have money and so does the next man, concern yourself with only your pockets. Maybe you could network and build empires for your community. Because we know better we can do better!

Pointing at them is easy

If we all sat down together, you would hear many stories of triumphs and trials. We would discuss love and hate that we receive from others. We also could discuss our setbacks and who is the blame. How many can point at them self and say “I’m the issue too”?

With our failures and shortcomings, it’s so easy to point the finger and blame others. Many of us don’t take accountability for our part in any of our issues. When this happens, we are pretending to be perfect and act as if we are not human. We are bound to mess up, we will disappoint everyone including Ourselves.

Let’s be accountable for our words and actions. Recognize the faults they we have made. Then Learn and grow from it. After a while, if you continue to run into the same type of situations, no one will believe your “poor me” attitude or monologue. Remember friends, love and respect starts from within.

World MS Day🧡🧡🧡

May 30th, World MS Day! It may just be a day for some but this is a battle for others and myself everyday. What is it? MS is a disease that affects the Central Nervous System. Lesions can be founds on the brain and spinal cord due to the myelin being damaged for reasons we don’t know. This causes symptoms such as numbness, nerve pain, dizziness, the inability to walk, slurred speech, fatigue, blurred vision, double vision, memory loss, and more. No two people with MS are alike because it’s very complexed. MS is also considered an invisible disease because like myself, in the first stages, you can do your best to disguise it. However, it does progress and many of our warriors can need walking assistance devices or could be wheel chair bound. Unfortunately, in the Last stage, like many other brain diseases, the brain can be so damaged that eating, caring for yourself and speaking, slowly diminish away 😔 I’m praying for a Cure so that no one else has to endure this horrible disease…. so if you know someone battling the disease please give them a high five or a hug 🧡 I stand proud as a Warrior and we will continue to Fight!! M S.. made Strong! 🧡🧡🧡

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.

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!

How do We See Ourselves?

Hi Friends!

I was reading from the Bible app and this was a screenshot of one of the devotionals. This is a struggle for myself and I’m sure for many of you reading. The issue of How we see ourselves vs how God(or your spiritual self) sees us.

I’ve created this tape of negative thoughts and it is hard to erase. No one in particular put it there but it does exist. I believe in order for us gain Peace in our lives, we have to change our cognitions and behaviors.

We can achieve this goal by performing daily affirmations, prayer, and meditation. Will it be easy? No. However, anything worth having will require hard work and dedication.

Why not experience The joys of life besides the unfortunate struggle? Why should we only indulge in self pity and the “woe it’s me” attitude? Instead, make a Decision to want more and SERVE more. Things will get better for us friends, we just need the time to believe it. 😊

Thanks for reading and sharing!

My little earthly Angel SVJ

Hi friends! How’s it going? Things on my end are ok. Ups and downs just like everyone else. I’m still a work in progress so bare with me 💁🏾‍♀️

Today, I’m home with my little guy because he’s on winter recess from school. I just had one of my many moments and he smiles and hand me one of my journals with a pen.

I sat there in amazement. I felt, at that moment, SVJ was delivering a message from God. He saw me weeping about life after tragedy. He knows my heart and what’s been weighing heavy on my mind, and soul.

Life after tragedy has been difficult. A part of me left when my loved ones went to be with the Lord. However, I know they would want me to live. In fact, as a child, my father always said, “Baby, when I go, you have to go on because Life goes on”. I hated those conversations then and still have a tough time handling it now.

Thank you SVJ for being my earthly Angel to deliver this message. I can promise God, my family, friends and myself that I won’t give up or give in. This will take time, but Living in search for Peace is what I’m going to do!

Thanks for reading friends!!
