Let Us Just Be

Let’s strive to be WHO we are meant to be and make no apologies for it.

Let’s embrace the possibilities and disregard the negativity that may try to discourage us.

Let’s explore the unknown and give life to the notion that we might be the missing link to so many problems and issues in the world but we have to be willing and bold.

Let’s be grateful for our blessings for without them we could not have made it this far.

Let’s seize opportunities for they are stepping stones to new chapters in our lives.

Let us help when and wherever we can because it is the right thing to do even though we may not always get a “Thank You”.

Let us empower ourselves to be the heroes the world so desperately needs us to be – as you do you and I do me.

Let us support and encourage each other because we ALL can use a cheerleader from time to time. 🙂  Pushing us along the way to persevere another day.

Let us remember to live, love, laugh and forgive along the way. These simple acts may help extend our lives each day.

Let us never forget to pray as this for me is the only way, to start and end each day.

Lastly, let us just be and as you work on YOU and I work on ME together we’ll be growing independently. Learning as we go along the way to appreciate and value every single day.

Thank you for making this blog one of your stops in this journey called life.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Growth

Growth is more than a physical transformation.

It speaks to the spiritual and intellectual components that make up who we are as individuals.

Don’t be afraid to grow, to stretch yourself, to leave your comfort zone and to challenge yourself because when you do – you encourage and foster a learning environment that results in growth of mind, body and spirit.

May each day be one gifted with knowledge, wisdom and growth.

Thank you for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your day.

The Blame Game

The blame game only highlights the obvious that is, that something went wrong or not as planned.

The time and effort we put into it can drain our energy and leaving those involved feeling discouraged and angry. How we address issues in times like these can help make or break relationships.

Things go wrong from time to time and it is important that we look at where things went wrong and why so we can learn from them.  However, more effort should be placed on finding a resolution and a way forward.

So before we go off highlighting everything someone else did incorrectly – stop, think and ask yourself, if it were me how would I like to be spoken to or about.

We all make mistakes. Let’s choose to learn from them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Music is the sound, rhythm and beat behind the words or musical notes that encourage you to move your feet

Music brings the notes and words to life

Inspiring you to forget your troubles and just enjoy your life

Music ignites within us that sense of joy, happiness and pleasure that just reading the same words alone may not muster

Music can help soothe our minds likewise it can motivate us to get up and shake our behinds 🙂

Music is that special gift from God

Given to us to help make life more enjoyable

Although we may sometimes take it for granted

The joy it can bring is almost everlasting

So as you listen to the beat and casually tap and move your feet

Remember, music is really a special treat! 

 

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful night!
