Love…………….


Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within the reach of every hand.

Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness. ~

Love is not what the mind thinks, but what the heart feels. ~

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. ~

The most eloquent silence; that of two mouths meeting in a kiss. ~

Love cannot endure indifference. It needs to be wanted. Like a lamp, it needs to
be fed out of the oil of another’s heart, or its flame burns low.

Love is the only flower that grows and blossoms without the aid of the seasons.

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.

 

 

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!

Love + You = Self Love


 

Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?

When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and bring joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.  Love yourself unconditionally, just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.

If you aren’t good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even giving to yourself.

If you love yourself, you love everybody else as you do yourself. As long as you love another person less than yourself, you will not succeed in loving yourself, but if you love all alike, including yourself, you will love them as one person and that person is both God and man. Thus he is the great righteous person who, loving himself, loves all others equally.

The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well.

People who do not love themselves can adore others, because adoration is making someone else big and ourselves small.

They can desire others, because desire comes out of a sense of inner incompleteness, which demands to be filled. But they can not love others, because love is an affirmation of the living growing being in all of us. If you don’t have it, you can’t give it.

Inspiration –


One of the greatest life’s lessons worth learning is the ability to maneuver between seasons. Being able to identify and predict what season is coming next. There are many seasons and times for everything you must be able to not only identify them but predict which season is near approaching so that you can act accordingly.
 
Your success or failure is predicated on your ability to know the difference. If you can learn this lesson, being watchful and be able to act then life will get easier.
 
You must always love yourself enough to demand respect from others.

You must always love yourself enough to recognize when someone does not love you

You must always love yourself enough to rise from any set back, disappointment, painful event or mistake. Love yourself no matter what…. With God, know that you You are greater than you imagine.

Liking Life v.s. Loving Life


What a day today! Love being busy BUT a productive kind of busy!………  I realized that there is a difference between loving life and liking life……

Someone may say that sounds silly but the people who LOVE life… usually have had brushes with death personally, lost loved ones, are financially fit or just learned to “just be content” on what they have and who they are in this present world……

Those who I would say only “like life ” are people……hmmmm…they are how I used to be… always complaining, getting upset easy over silly things, doing too many projects, having a million dreams attached to a million goals BUT only completing 10 out of a million! Over zealous…. never had enough time to do things, never had my priorities 100% together, was always busy…etc..etc..etc..  I am ALWAYS finding a way to connect what goes on in the natural to what goes on or what is GOING ON in the spiritual because indeed TO ME – it is truly all relative! In the bible, no I am not going deep but im deep enough so that anyone reading my blog would understand THE MORAL OF THE STORY! LOL

Well back to what I was saying, in the bible there were these 2 women named Mary and Martha…. both sisters and of course had totally different personalities and ways of thinking ….let alone doing things!

Jesus had made a visit to their home and Mary was all about enjoying the moment and appreciating where she was in life and having a burning desire to learn….. learn from the best teacher..which is Jesus!q Now Martha… whew ( the old me ) she was ALL about being overly busy….. like most of us – we focus on how many things that we can do….. but there is a motive attached to it.. Mary is just happy if she can do one thing and is humble enough to sit at the feet of Jesus to obtain what she needs…. while Martha would rather run around the house trying to put on a presentation toward a man who needs nothing and has everything!  READ LUKE 10:38-42 and you will see that Mary loved life v.s. her sister Marth just “like life”…..

Living  is a blessing but enjoying it is something else! Who wants to just live and walk around being ROBOTIC? I want to have more than just AIR IN MY LUNGS!

 

 

 

L-O-V-E


Love has a serious influence over people, one which is too often taken for granted.  Love has horrid consequences if you do not respect it for what it is to others.  Love is not always what you think it is, or what you think it should be.  Love can take many different forms, and can even be deceptive.

Love can be healing, or it can be devastating.  Love is ecstasy and torment.  Love gives you strength, but can make you weak.  Love can be freeing, or enslave us under its power.

One thing about love is for certain, once you find it you never want to lose it.  Love is everywhere and in many different forms all around us.  Love permeates our thoughts, fills our dreams, and effects our actions.  Even though love permeates the world around us, it is still so hard to assign a definitive value.

Of course, love is different for everyone, and this is part of what makes defining love so difficult.  No one can tell you what love is to you, that is something you have to find for yourself.  I think love is something you define through your own desires, and express through your own experiences.

Love is unique to each person, and sometimes those values are incompatible.

Honestly…… In the end, love is what you make of it………
