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!
