A Little Wisdom –

The strength of a man isn’t seen in the width of his shoulders. It’s seen in the width of his arms that circle you. The strength of a man isn’t in the deep tone of his voice. It’s in the gentle words he whispers. The strength of a man isn’t how many buddies he has. It’s how good a buddy he is with his kids.

The strength of a man isn’t in how respected he is at work. It’s in how respected he is at home. The strength of a man isn’t in how hard he hits. It’s in how tender he touches. The strength of a man isn’t in the hair on his chest. It’s in his Heart … that lies within his chest.

The strength of a man isn’t how many women he’s loved. It’s in how he can be true to one woman. The strength of a man isn’t in the weight he can lift. It’s in the burdens he can carry.

Honor, Respect, Faith, Relationship with God, Healthy Relationships with Family and Friends, Giving, Compassion, Love and Commitment are “some of the things” that a Single Mother can show HER SON which can aid to help nurture him to be a GREAT MAN.

Even without a father – being present and producing a CONSISTENT voice and presence in their son’s lives – I often tell some of my girl pals NOT to become bitter when God has already equipped our sons as well as ourselves to “put in the POSITIVE SEEDS” of Life –

Oh by the way….. Women Rock… and Single Moms are Doing Their Thing –

“God got us AND our boys”……….. just STAY being a light, an example of Christian Living –

Making Time


image

It is already Thursday….. So ask yourself if you have YET placed aside any time for yourself? If not, then you need to re – evaluate and re – adjust your schedule weekly. How can it already be Thursday morning and you have spent EVERY MOMENT focusing on other things and people but you yet again you obviously IGNORED YOURSELF?

How about start caring about yourself a little bit more than you are doing? You will LOVE yourself for it but you will then KICK YOURSELF after you see / realize how much that you needed it and you should have been “taking care of you”…….

During the time you take for yourself, look at your goals and what you want to do with your life. Think about your goals and how you are going to reach them. Think about the things that make you happy and think about what you are going to do to ensure you reach your goals. Taking time for yourself is a lot about goal setting because you can sit back and determine what goals you want to reach and how you are going to reach each of those goals.

Talk to your friends and family and let them know that you are taking time for yourself. Tell them that this time is for your personal reflection and that means no interruptions. Do not take phone calls from anyone and ensure those in your house know to leave you alone.

During your time, turn off the television, turn off the computer and sit down and surely let’s NOT FORGET to cut off that incredibly distracting CELL PHONE!! LOL

This is so you can be in your own mind. This keeps distractions from becoming a problem and it keeps you from worrying about things, or thinking about anything beyond what you need to.

Personal development will change your life but you need to make time for it and that means making time for yourself. Do not skimp on time for yourself because you want to ensure that you do everything right and reach the goals you want. Time for yourself allows you to think, plan and implement towards that end.

To My Mentee With Love

My hopes for your life is that God comforts you on all of your difficult days that will come……

Smiles that will intrude you during your sad days that too will also come during your life… Multiple rainbow to follow the clouds……. Much laughter to feed your lips which can cause you to speak life into someone else because YOU are in a good place within yourself!! Genuine friendships that can help build character and of course brighten your days!

Beauty for your eyes to see that life is not a bad choice and that it is indeed WORTH living because God granted you the gift of life so please stop complaining about it! Look and be grateful for the several sunsets that HE has already allowed you to see without holding your past mistakes against you! God is amazing is He not!

Patience with me to hear and accept the truth as I bring it to you in LOVE so that you can get courage to know the real you…… Which can teach you how to seek God’s help for faith so that you will no longer doubt HIM……because He is waiting for YOU to trust HIM in all things…

Then of course LOVE, to complete your life because God did says that LOVE is the greatest gift of ALL!!

You Can Too –


Some of the MOST important people in our lives as well as our nation’s history had to learn how to OVERCOME! We feel that we are always the only individuals who seem to go through hell, experience failure, betrayed, lose friends, lose finances and the breaking up of family. Welp, if that were indeed the case, how successful would the ” human race ” actually be? We should READ MORE and this way we would discover that, “we too can beging again” regardless how  many times we have to attempt to make our goals a reality!

Abraham Lincoln grew up in a very difficult environment. He had less than one year of formal schooling. He experienced defeat and failure year after year, but is one of the great-greatest. success stories of all time. In spite of everything, he had the right attitude to achieve success!

Guess what – it is 2012 going on 2013 and YES….the world is STILL a mess but there are opportunities available for you to be and maintain a success story if you do not GIVE UP!
