Invest in YOU

Sometimes in life we just have to take a chance.  A chance on ourselves and a chance on love.  When we make that conscious decision, we open ourselves to the possibilities that such a chance along with hope will help us discover who we’re truly meant to be and who we’re meant to share our lives with both in the short-term and the long-term.

Trust that no matter what, you’re going to learn something new and you’re going to grow wiser and stronger with each lesson.  Dust yourself off and move forward.  For life is a playground full of lessons and how we learn to handle and master those lessons help to shape some aspects of who we are but they don’t define us!

What we’ve done reflects our past but it is what we do that defines who we have become. 

It is through our actions and character that we define WHO we are.  So take a chance on YOU, if you’re content where you are in life then take a chance on someone else.  They might just need someone to have that faith in them to help push them get to the next level.

Don’t be afraid to learn something new.  You’ll never know your full potential if you deny yourself the opportunity to learn and explore things outside of your comfort zone.

I’ve learnt so much about myself, my talents and my abilities that I didn’t know before and I’m sure there is much more.

I would never have learnt if I did not TRY so remember

Hope you had a great weekend.  Have a wonderful week. 🙂

One More Chance

You have one more chance to get it right

One more chance to put up a good fight

To convince yourself that this

Is where you want to be

To live your life and be free

…………………………………………………………….

You have one more chance to prove to yourself

That you are a go-getter

So no more sitting on the shelf

Only you can do this for yourself

………………………………………………………………………..

You have one more chance so make it count

Live your life, don’t sit and pout

So go and create memories

You’ll want to smile and laugh about

………………………………………………………

If you had one more chance

In this game called life

Would continue as you are?

Or run away so far?

………………………………………………………….

Would you stand up for yourself?

Or be the hero for someone else?

Would your last chance be about you?

Or finding love that’s true.

 

 

 

You will love again

 

“Never again, will I love again!” said the angry and hurt woman through her window pane

Her lover left her a note

And apparently, she had no vote

As she read and I quote,

“My love, I can no longer pretend

and so our relationship must end.

I’m off to see the world so I leave

you these few pieces of gold.”

Feeling broken and ashamed

She built walls of stone around her heart

Thinking it would be safe there hidden in the dark

Then one day a stranger came

And her life would never be the same

He broke down her walls with his love

And now once again she was as gentle as a dove

She tried to fight the feelings inside

But her love for him she could not hide

He became her groom and she became his bride

Her true love found her in the dark

And his love for her brought back her spark

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have two choices

Daily Prompt: Radiate

Radiate such a powerful word full of meaning

To love? or To hate? They both can make you feel like screaming

Emotions so pure and real

Even if we didn’t want to

We can’t help but feel

………………………………………………………………..

Being apart of this world can sometimes be surreal

What do you do when the world sucks all your energy inside

And the only thing carrying you is your pride

Dig deep and steady your feet

…………………………………………………………………..

Battling hate with hate will only depreciate

What people have grown to appreciate

Make no mistake

Allowing yourself to become overrun by hate

Is not like eating cake or finding your soul mate

………………………………………………………..

There is no real joy or pleasure

Just coldness and bitterness beyond measure

So when you feel yourself filling up

I suggest a deep breath

And ask that you not give up

………………………………………………………

Don’t let go of the love you have

Don’t let go of what might be your last chance

Not everyone gets a second chance

…………………………………………………………….

Let the love you have radiate like the light that it is

So much so that you can’t help but give

Let love radiate from you core

So the world can see

YOU are so much more.

Thank you for stopping by.

 

Grateful

 God used three amazing people to do his work

What I’m about to tell you is no joke

When I saw the miracle I almost choked

…………………………………………………………

I had a financial dilemma

That would take all I could muster

With little time to acquire

There was no doubt that I had to deliver

………………………………………………………….

With no clear path in sight

I prayed to God with all my might

That he would help me with my plight

Less than one week later, I sing praises to my maker

He touched the hearts of a chosen few

And now I don’t have to feel blue

…………………………………………………………………

They came through for me and I didn’t ask

They came through for me and it was fast

God used them to remind me

That no dilemma is bigger than HE

…………………………………………………………

These three people know who they are

Their simple gift made me shine like a star

May God keep you safe

Wherever you are

Thank you!

God will find a WAY to get you what you NEED. Don’t lose HOPE.

Thanks for stopping by.  🙂

If you knew…

If you knew that special day

When you would have to go away

Away from all that you hold dear

Do you think your loved ones would care?

………………………………………………………………..

If you knew that special day

Could you put aside your pride?

And show them who you are inside

Opening up your heart so wide

……………………………………………………

If you knew that special day

Would there be anything special you’d like to say?

Or wished you said a different way

But let your emotions get in the way

……………………………………………………..

If you knew that special day

Would you live your life differently?

No longer sad or depressed

Constantly worrying about all the mess

Carrying the weight of the world on your chest

Or would you’ll finally take some rest?

……………………………………………………..

No one knows that special day

When each of us will fade away

So let us make a promise today

To LIVE each and everyday

Cherishing each other and making time for one another

Taking it one day at a time

We’ll see the MOST precious gift we have is TIME.
