- Just because someone says they don’t like something about you doesn’t mean it’s bad or you need to change it. Depending on what it is; often it’s a matter of preference.
- Don’t feel the need to do something spectacular or out of the ordinary to be an individual, all you need to show is who YOU are inside.
- Change is a constant. So changing who you are over time is inevitable, and is always likely to be a good thing if you’ve stayed informed, relevant, and clued in to the world around you and have allowed your personal development to be a top priority in your life.
- Even if your friends seem different, don’t hold back. Be yourself and if they don’t accept you they aren’t your real friends.
- If you need to be yourself, do what your heart tells you to do, say what you feel deep inside.If people bully you, you don’t have to bully them back, just turn around and ignore them. Do what you want to do now it doesn’t mean that you should go insane.Be sane and always put a smile on your face.
- Striving to be something you’re not can be unhealthy when it involves improving academic, sport, and social interactions skills. It can be highly harmful when you’re striving to “be like” someone else just to have their popularity, appearance, and attitudes rub off on you. Keep unique by keeping your perspective focused on building your strengths through the inspiration of others, not through becoming like them.
- Fads and trends are a personal decision. While some people avoid them like the plague in the name of “individualism”, it doesn’t mean you’re not being yourself when you choose to follow a trend. It’s all about what you want.
Don’t hate, get upset, disgruntled or walk away from God because of the troubles you face everyday …..Leaving CHRIST should be the VERY last thing on your mind – Trouble don’t last always – even when it FEELS like it – I feel it too!
However, the Bible said that you will have troubles , but your Heavenly and lovely Father Jesus promised that He will never leave you lost in them . He is with you . Believe that God is faithful , and if you lost something , HE WILL GIVE YOU SOMETHING BETTER . I can say this with every part of me because I lost not many but dear things to me , and God didn’t betray me . I gained the double ..
Why are you too sad ?The Lord said ” I will repay you” in His Bible . He also said that whatever comes out from His mouth must be done . Believe in Him and put all your trust in Him because He is not like the people you meet , who say ”will do” but never do .
Life can get REALLY hard…things happen and you wonder why AND how long – trust me I know ….I get it… sometimes you want to throw your hands up and it is “okay”…..just don’t walk away from all the hard work that you ALREADY put in….. This is a time for your trials and tribulations NOT to become in vain..
God bless you!!!!
P.S. Know that this 5 minute random was for me too!
To favor means to give special regard to; to treat with goodwill; to show exceptional kindness to someone. Sometimes, it means to show extra kindness in comparison to the treatment of others; that is, preferential treatment. Deuteronomy 28:50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:
See All… warns of judgment by a “nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young.” Though it is natural for us to favor the young in times of affliction or judgment, this nation will not give such favor.
Esther received royal favor above all the other virgins (Esther 2:17And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.. It is from this use of favor that we get the word, favorite. The greatest favors are shown to the favorite.
However, favor is not always used in a comparative way toward others. It sometimes simply means that the one favored is shown kindness and treated with a generosity and goodwill far beyond what would normally be expected. This is generally the favor that we receive from the Lord. We are treated much better than we could expect. Of course, every believer is favored to some degree. Therefore, we must understand God’s favor in degrees. The more we please God, the more we will be favored by Him. Also, it is important not to think of this favor in material or worldly terms. God’s favor most likely will be given in spiritual blessings more than in material blessings.
Do as little harm to others as you can; make any sacrifice for your true friends; be responsible for yourself and ask nothing of others; and grab all the fun you can. Don’t give much thought to yesterday, don’t worry about tomorrow, live in the moment, and trust that your existence has meaning even when the world seems to be all blind chance and chaos. When life lands a hammer blow in your face, do your best to respond to the hammer as if it had been a cream pie.
On a lighter note…… being a lady is such a chore some days.. It reminds ne of a good workout!! Lol, No pain, No gain!! Check out my shoe action.. cute shoes but after 4 hours, it was surely time to find some tennis shoes, flip flops or slippers!
This weekend, I had so much fun hanging with my girlfriends BUT HAD A BLAST WITH MY SISTER. I attended one of my girl pal’s wedding and it was beautiful….. she looked beautiful and it made me realize how much I too, want to be married again.
Being around friends and family is something that I can’t take for granted because my FAMILY goes up and down soo much! Attending weddings – well CHRISTIAN weddings allows me to feel the peace and love of God…it also reminds me of His promises …..there are more people getting divorced than getting married and it is sad…
Im praying my girl pal and her husband has at least 100 years of Godly wedded bliss!!! A great deal of people just do NOT take their vows seriously, let alone fear God like “they should” being honest….. Nonetheless, God is good and I love the Lord and ” I wont take it back”…… ( a slogan in the black church )
My post is random I know.. that’s because my mind is all over the place…mentally and emotionally. But I’m really in an awesome place in MY LIFE.
It does NOT matter who does what first….second…third…or even LAST… Just as long as things get done and people are able to glean from the knowledge from one another –
Good leaders are always WILLING to share information – to be honest – we are ALL taking bits and pieces from one another – known and unknown – that is the CYCLE of confirmation when we can be all on one accord – wanting – needing – desiring the SAME thing for the betterment of others.
Everyone wants to be first and NO ONE seems to EVER desire to be last…… How about just being grateful to even be able to ” PARTICIPATE ” in something great that can edify and produce something amazing for man – kind??!! …
How a lot of people measure success is sometimes actually a bit scary – Do not get me wrong – we all love nice things but nice things do not mold a decent human beings and if a person is not careful – their distorted view of success can deform the morals, values, stances, ethics and beliefs!
“Happiness” equals “success” and “success” equals “blessing.” Success (eudaimonia in Greek) is translated as happiness in English, and happy (makarios) is translated as blessed, or enjoying a share of the divine, living like a god. Animals cannot enjoy success, because they have no share of the divine, and the gods enjoy a different type of ideal existence.
In order to meet success you must use your skills and knowledge to pursue certain goals for the sake of higher goal. For example, a human can either: carry out one goal, such as running a mile, or carry out one objective for a higher purpose, such as being in shape. The single highest objective in life is to live well and fare well, i.e. being successful. An aim in the highest degree is only worth pursuing for itself and never anything else; success is worth pursuing in its own right.
However, you have to learn what success actually is – If your only focus is MONEY – HOUSES – CARS and – LAND …….then you are indeed headed for a heavy fall because those are only temporary THINGS….
Relationships are often stressful and require a lot of effort to make them successful. Friendships can sometimes become toxic and unhealthy to one or both people involved. Letting go of unpleasant or unhealthy friendships can be very difficult but is a vital step to improving overall quality of life, reduce stress and possibly improve self-esteem. Once a friendship becomes more effort than what it’s worth, letting that friend go is better done sooner than later.
Focus on yourself, improve yourself and work towards a better version of who you are at the moment. The only person that you should change is you. If you live with someone who is difficult, or even if you just spend some time with them, take each time you interact with them as a new experience.
One of the most powerful things you can do is simply change how you view that difficult person. Maybe after you put yourself in their shoes, or learn that you are also a bit like them, you might find that they are not that difficult after all. Don’t let your first impressions be the only ones you have. And don’t waste your time trying to change anyone, instead, use that time and energy to improve who you are.
In the end we all just WANT PEACE right?? I personally have wasted too much time over the years of maintaining relationships that were DEAD for a long time….. Thank goodness for God’s revelation right!
I pray that you be still long enough to realize that SPRING CLEANING does not have to happen in the SPRING!! For me, it is a weekly thing and I feel lighter and lighter and it is an overwhelming POSITIVE EXPERIENCE in my life…. try it for yourself and see!
However, these things will ONLY work if you want to restore the relationships………. ALSO understand that in all honesty, all relationships are NOT meant to be restored…… In the end, it is about self love – and what YOU KNOW what is best for you…..
# until next time…..
