Let your light shine through your darkness

Hi, Great People!

We all have a past that haunts us. We all have experiences that people can’t and won’t forget about us.
Through our darkness, we can bring light to our current situation. Our past and shortcomings doesn’t determine our success or future. Often, the enemy, will make us believe that we are nothing and won’t amount to anything. Friends, that is far from the truth and is NOT your reality. 

I urge you to dig deep, use your darkest days to create brighter ones. Help the next person who is struggling as well. Link up with a community of individuals who battle what you battle. With patience and support, you Can turn it all around. 

Blessings to you all, have a good Monday!

Motivational Monday’s : be with like-minded people

  
 Hey friends! 
Not only do I love this picture, but I love the quote that the writer made. Some people believe that in order to get to your full potential, you need to associate with others who are in the position you want or trying to achieve those goals. I have to say that I agree. The people we speak to regularly play a major role in our lives. 
With saying that, how many are associated with others who want to achieve goals like themselves? This doesn’t have to only involve career goals, it can be relationship goals, financial goals, etc. I believe that if you want to become an entrepreneur, some of your contacts should be so as well. You can’t only associate with those who do Not have the dream of owning their own business because it can be harder to achieve that dream without that extra push. Let’s say you want to get married or thinking about parenthood, yes, those are both journeys in life that are not the same for everyone, but having a mentor who is married or a parent can help give insight on things to expect. Let’s face it, sometimes we can’t get that from family because of the different dynamics and biases. 
There are many other benefits that I’m sure I missed. Does anyone else associate or have a mentor with others that are like-minded? What other benefits do you believe take place?

M.M.–Your “why” should be bigger than you

Hey all! 

While having a discussion with my DH (darling husband) about sports, we spoke about players having less of an ego when it comes to being on a team and I completely agree!
Please don’t misunderstand, I know we all have pride in our art or our passion in life, but I believe your “why” should be bigger than you. We all have reasons to “why” we want to be a “success” and that’s what motivates us. However, we can lose track and start to become bigger than ourselves, especially when you are placed on a pedestal by people. 
My “why” is my family and support for people. When I write in this blog, post videos, listen to others/give feedback, it’s not for me to gain glory. I do this because I want for people to know they are not alone in their battles because I’m battling right next to you. Even with my struggles, my family is my priority and it’s because of them that I don’t give up on my dreams or lose hope. I also want more for my family. A better me equals a better person, a better relationship with God, a better wife, a better mother, which trickles down to a decent child growing up in this big corrupted world. It’s a chain reaction and I want a positive one to re-chain. I do not aim to be on a pedestal, I aim to inspire and show love that someone may not be getting in life. 
What is your “why”? Have you sat down and really thought of that? Let me know!

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!

Motivation Monday’s: using your gifts

Hey all! 

Happy Monday to you! You know it’s Motivational Monday’s and today’s message is using your gifts. 

This is a lesson that I too, am working towards doing. I believe we all have skills that make us stand out from others and it would be good if expand on it. It could be the start of your own business, a hobby or volunteering your gifts to give back to the community. 

I also believe that if even if you want to volunteer your services, it could make you happier. By giving back to others and helping them in need, that could raise your self esteem and you will feel good about yourself. 

Think about it, you never know friends.

Motivational Monday’s

Hi all! 

Thanks for visiting and sharing my blog.

Today is what I like to call in my blog “motivational Monday’s”. This is also apart of the scheduled blog entries that I discussed in a previous post. Today, I want to discuss “Hope”.

What is Hope? I feel hope is the anticipation of a positive outcome for the future. 

This hits close to home for me especially on today. If you have been following my blog, you may know that I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) 5 years ago. With this debilitating disease, I find myself in a battle of emotions constantly. On one hand, I remain strong and keep in mind that things could be worse. On the other hand, I’m frustrated with the symptoms and the potential ending result of the disease. Hope is what keeps me grounded. 

I have Hope that scientists will find a cure, I have hope that no more damage will happen to my central nervous system,  I have hope that I may feel normal again. Besides my wonderful support system, having hope, makes me not want to give up even when at times I want to. 

What is hope for you? It may be career, relationship goals, self help. Whatever it may be, try to think positive and not give up. It’s ok to prepare yourself for the not so great events but it’s good to always have hope for a better outcome. 

Take care all!
