Ugghh…. of course by NOW everywhere in America is either screaming, crying, protesting, yelling, screaming or talking about the unlawful and racial profiling killing Trayvon Martin case right….. How about I was NOT EVEN SHOCKED that the verdict went the way that it did….. Honey, look at the CASEY ANTHONY CASE……….enough said huh??
Well, I will just not only pray but I will ALSO find other ways to be of an help to make a difference….. Sign petitions… show up for rallies…show up & PARTICIPATE in town hall conversations etc.. ( THIS COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN MY KID )
It is MORE than just praying – you also have to do something as well…..before the black males in this country becomes an endangered species! ! #truth
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…..
Well again…… this is yet ANOTHER day that The Lord has made….and I will ….I shall… and I DID REJOICE and was glad in it! LOL
Spending time with my daughter today after church today was indeed another lovely gift that The Lord allowed me to have……. it is weird seeing that she seems to be more excited to see me than I am… NO! Don’t get me wrong…. OF COURSE I am happy to see her but she smiles so much, giggles so much, hug me so much, talks so much, laughs so much that I have to almost be like…. Let me breath for a second!
However, God is literally walking me through every conversation and each fellowship time with her….. praying is a MUST in the beginning of our encounter as well as our departure from one another. So far…so good I tell you!! It is like I feel like I have to REMIND her of how things have to be if we are going to move forward effectively….what is acceptable and what is not acceptable etc…
Some things I say to her that I knew in the past would set her off, just to see IF SHE HAS GROWN in those certain areas…. Well my Lord, she has! She sits and listens… says yes maa’m and no maa’m and ask questions about being an adult as well as the THINGS OF GOD! >> insert my huge happy face and dance right here >>> ______________________
My son was just as happy!!! Trust me, the Lord has already indeed dealt with me about “continuously” testing her… He adds the increase as long as I do my part and stay out of HIS WAY! #coolbeans
