Many say this phrase often. We want more or we think things are better than what we have.
I’ve come to a point in life where I see that the grass is greener where it’s being well taken care of. Give it the seeds, water it and ask God for sunshine, you will have it.
You want what the next person has? Their grass “looks” so green? What if you found out that it’s spray? Or that it’s not even real grass?
Be happy with what you have, nourish your craft, relationship, most importantly, YOURSELF! Things will be great!
Deep in my thoughts. Thinking of the master plan…
I want to fly high above the clouds
It would be perfect for hubby and I to conquer the world as King and Queen and set the throne for our little prince
Not a care in the world, no sadness, no pain, no sickness, just pure bliss… Sounds like Heaven to me.
Sigh… It can be and it will be. Need the pen and paper to create the gateway to this successful journey
Today, I want to discuss what to do when someone tries make you feel bad for the great things happening in your life.
We have all heard the phrase, “misery loves company”. It’s very real and true and unfortunately it can be from those close to you. You can come with the best news; that promotion you have been waiting on, ideas to start a business, getting pregnant, engaged, a home, yet they still find a way to add their complaints and make you feel bad for sharing. Some even discuss their sadness of why that can’t be them, a real guilt trip. Did it ever make you feel bad?
I can say that this has happened to me on some occasions . It seemed like every time something good was happening in my life, there was always that one person that made me feel like ” am I bragging?” or is she giving me shade because she’s mad? Either way, it wasn’t a good feeling and I shouldn’t have to feel like apologizing for the blessings I was receiving.
So what are some tips you should do if this occurs :
- Don’t let a person rain on your parade. Continue to keep shining and bring more sun shine if you have to. People hate to see you happy, so keep succeeding and give them a reason to be mad.
- If you want to go the encouraging route, let them know that their time is coming and to be patient.
- If the negative vibes is too much, close the door on that friendship/relationship. If they truly love you as a person, they would Not make you feel bad for the greatness that is going on in your life.
I hope these points help friends. Continue to work hard, and accomplish your goals. The real supportive people know that when one is winning, we ALL are winning.

We often talk out being rich and successful yet many of us haven’t scratched the surface to what that requires. I too, can admit that I want to be successful and do what my heart desires like many. The question becomes, “why aren’t you living your successful life like the next up and coming person?” The answer: Committment. I was listening to a video by Ms. Marshawn Evans of marshawnevans.com and she made perfect sense.
Think about the things in life for you that are going great… More than likely it’s something we all are committed to doing. Now think about that one aspect of your life that isn’t how you expect it should be, it’s very possible that it may be something you are not committed to and fear is apart of that void.
I have so many ideas and I know in my heart and soul what I’m meant to do but the fear of failing always creeps onto my shoulder. However, you know the difference between us and those who are entrepreneurs? Having the fear and then stepping out on faith. When you give it your all aka “Committment”, you are nervous of the outcome but you also realize you can never give up and that’s when you take that leap!
We are all made for greatness and we will get there. What’s your passion? Or what would make you successful?
