Dear ( ME )

Self Talk


People who lack the clarity, courage, or determination to follow their own dreams will often find ways to discourage yours. When you change for the better, the people around you will be inspired to change also….but only after doing their best to make you stop. Live your truth and don’t EVER stop.

Do not let another day go by where your dedication to other people’s opinions is greater than your dedication to your own emotions! I feel keeping a promise to yourself is a direct reflection of the love you have for yourself. I used to make promises to myself and find them easy to break. Today, I love myself enough to not only make a promise to myself, but I love myself enough to keep that promise….. AND SO SHOULD YOU!!

No matter what your history has been, your destiny is what you create today. What are you going to create NOW?

My Weekend Epiphany –


Love is expressed as an action and experienced as a feeling. Yet, love has an essence that resists defining in any single way––it encompasses compassion, tolerance, endurance, support, faith, determination and more. Love reaches beyond romance and embraces us in all walks of life as we encounter one another and make choices about respecting and caring for each other.

The question of how you should love is really only a question that you can answer, from deep within your own heart and from your own thoughts on the matter.

Love teaches you that hateful people are often driven by a lack of self-respect and that they’re churned up about all the things they don’t like about themselves, causing them to project this hate onto others. Of all people, haters / are simply VERY DISGRUNTLED and CONFUSED people who indeed need your compassion most. And it is love that leads to compassionate responses.

Where hate is directed toward you, repel it with love and use their hatred as motivation to show that tolerance, kindness and acceptance are better ways to get along in our communities.Never stop loving other people who are in your life and who come and go. By sharing love around, you create a loving environment and you inspire others to do the same thing.

You also show the best reflection of your worth to others when you love. More people showing love in our world means endless forgiveness, a willingness to give people second chances and a commitment to moving humanity forward, ever striving for greater harmony. Jean Anouilh once observed that “love is, above all, the gift of oneself.” In giving of the best of who you really are to others in the name of love, you transcend selfish motives and introspection, and truly seek to appreciate others.

Never stop loving other people who are in your life and who come and go. By sharing love around, you create a loving environment and you inspire others to do the same thing. You also show the best reflection of your worth to others when you love. More people showing love in our world means endless forgiveness, a willingness to give people second chances and a commitment to moving humanity forward, ever striving for greater harmony. We all should one day observe that “love is, above all, the gift of oneself.” In giving of the best of who you really are to others in the name of love, you transcend selfish motives and introspection, and truly seek to appreciate others.

Life is NOT a box of chocolates! LIFE is not a bowl of cherries! Life is not a cart of lemons! With so many artificial Religious structure(s) often dilutes the spiritual experience and this usually keeps people from really experiencing God when they walk into a church facility…. It is 2012  – closing approaching 2013 and we ALL should learn to Live life with a purpose and live it full out………….

You cannot continue on the same path and arrive at a different destination. Make the choice to have your actions reflect your goals…Let today be the day you stop having conflict between your actions and your goals and finally align your greatest intent with your purposeful actions, creating a HOLY / Christ filled symphony serenading your success……..

Dear Life – Thank You!


Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn’t what you get for it, but what you become for it. Shake things up today! Be You…Be Free…Share…….

Don’t confuse poor decision-making with destiny. Own your mistakes. It’s ok; we all make them. Learn from them so they can empower you! I have learned to just say THANK YOU to all of the good – the bad – the ugly as well as the horrid things that has transpired in my life. God allowed it so I might as well say thank you and learn from the situations at hand!

It is important that we forgive ourselves for making mistakes. We need to learn from our errors and move on.. You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway…….  One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say “i love you”, “i’m sorry”, “i appreciate you”, “i’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it…cause a smile today for someone else…and give plenty of hugs.”

Life can be good…bad…happy..sad…shocking…wonderful…tragic….humble…immoral….respectful etc..etc..etc.. Nonetheless, LIFE is a gift and it is not our job to constantly ponder why things are the way that they are BUT it is our job to improve or change the things that we desire them to be. Ask God to assist us in removing ourselves from situations that should not be, if that is indeed His will.

Sometimes Life is a big thank you…… you may not see it NOW but in the end – it is all a blessing from on high…… Forget yesterday – it has already forgotten you. Don’t sweat tomorrow – you haven’t even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift – today!

I DARE You!


There are two main strategies for coping with problems. We can think about a problem and solve it. Or we can accept it, live out our grief or anger and find a positive thought. For most problems, both strategies are needed………………Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully……When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light…. When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it……When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway……When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back……..When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some………When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going……….

When times are tough, dare to be tougher…….When love hurts you, dare to love again………When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal……..When another is lost, dare to help them find the way………When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand………When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile…….When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best and of course you should always Dare to be the best you can – At all times, Dare to be!
