“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won’t mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever…. connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”

Be your own ins…

1 Sep

Be your own inspiration!

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs;
ask yourself what makes you come alive.
And then go and do that.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

May All Your Prayers be Answered

25 Aug

A voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea and only two of the men on it were able to swim to a small, desert like island.
The two survivors, not knowing what else to do, agreed that they had no other recourse but to pray to God.
However, to determine whose prayers should be most effective, they agreed to divide the territory between them and stay on opposite sides of the island.
The first thing they prayed for was food.
The next morning, the first man saw a fruit-bearing tree on his side of the land, and he was able to eat its fruit. The other man’s parcel of land remained barren.
After a week, the first man was lonely and he decided to pray for a wife. The next day, another ship was wrecked, and the only survivor was a woman who swam to his side of the land. On the other side of the island, there was nothing.
Soon the first man prayed for a house, clothes, more food. The next day, like magic, all of these were given to him. However, the second man still had nothing.
Finally, the first man prayed for a ship, so that he and his wife could leave the island.  In the morning, he found a ship docked at his side of the island and boarded the ship with his wife.  
Since none of the other man’s prayers had been answered, he considered him unworthy to receive God’s blessings, so he decided to leave the second man on the island.
As the ship was about to leave, the first man heard a voice from heaven booming, “Why are you leaving your companion on the island?”
“My blessings are a result of my faith and prayers, since I was the one who prayed for them,” the first man answered.  “His prayers were all unanswered and so I figured he does not deserve anything.”
“You are sorely mistaken, and are in great debt to him.”
“How’s that?”  the first man asked.  
”It was his great faith that invoked the blessings, and he prayed that all your prayers might be answered.”
Are our blessings the fruits of our prayers and work alone, or of those of another praying for us?  What (and who) are you praying for?  
With obedience come blessings.  May all your righteous prayers be answered.

                  Patience is bitter but its fruit are sweet. Sometimes, the time we spend realizing our true purpose and actually seeing it come alive in from of us can seem like an eternity. But it is only when we keep going when the going gets hard and never slow down our dreams will begin to manifest. It will reveal itself to us and naturally becomes apart of who we are. Patience is the most necessary qualification one need to accomplish his or her goals, or to succeed in any relationship and see it blossom. The race is long and hard and at times draining to ones body and soul. The happiness and beauty that lies at the finish line will make all the trials and frustration seem like a pinch and as transparent as night and day!


Recipe for a happy life

1 Jul

              It has been said that the one thing that is certain in life is death. In between we have a dash from the year we were born til the day that we die. I like to think there is a bundle of happiness we could acquire in between that line. Happiness is something one as to condition themselves to. It is not a feeling that comes effortlessly. Over the years as i have spoken to people that have a seemly stable and fulfilling life, the one thing that i have found that they all have in common is their ability to forgive. No matter how horrific the situation was they had to face, they found a way to let go of the bitterness before it consume them. They didn’t necessarily forgive to free the next man conscience but to alleviate themselves from the burden that comes with carrying a grudge. Harboring bad feelings poison the heart, then it weakens the mind and the body. If we can always remind ourselves of the imperfection we all have as humanbeings, then forgiving others becomes easier. We’re all aware that we can’t go back in time and change things in a way that more suites us, then why hold onto negativity when there is so much happiness that lies in from of us. Finding the right remedy for a happy life is letting go of the bad things that have passed knowing that we’re still standing still. If we can’t fix or change it, let it go. We have to allow ourselves to be swallowed up in all the happiness that surrounds us and that is to come.


Battle of the bulge

12 Jun



         The biggest wardroe mulfunction for any women is their belly, it’s certainly mines, and i have been battling it for years. My biggest problem is being consistant. keeping a regulary excercise rountine and sticky to it long enough to see the changes i need to better my health. When i was in my early twenties losing weight for me was all about looking good. Now that i’m a short step away from turning thirty its all about being health. Keeping fit so that i’ll be able to enjoy life more and being able to keep up as best as i possible can. The older we get the more our body changes and sometimes we can slow it down sooner than it should. excersing alone will not keep us as healthy as we should be, we also have to change the way we eat by incorporating alot more vegetables in our diet. for example week one you start off with ten jumping jacks and by week two add another ten and so on. start eating  meals that consist of a portion of veggies, and little by little cut back on your carbs. start walking before you think about running. These step seem so easy and they actually are, and one of the best way to get long lasting results.
