Held Back

I will not be held back.  I will not be held back.  I will not be held back.  I will not be held back.  I will not be held back by my fear.  I will not be held back by the fear of what other’s may think about me.  I will not be held back […]

You Don’t Know

You don’t know, if you don’t try.  You will never know, if you never attempt.  Allow yourself to try.  Allow yourself to attempt.  Allow yourself to fail.  Allow yourself to succeed.  Allow yourself to learn.  Allow yourself to grow, mature, and become better.  Allow yourself to be vulnerable.  Real.  Raw.  Authentic.  What burns inside of […]

The Crowd

When you follow the crowd, you die by the crowd.  Is it important to have connection with others?  I believe so.  We need connection.  We need interaction with others.  We need community.  But, we also need to be cautious.  We need to be aware.  We need to know who we are as an individual.  Otherwise, […]

Wasted

I have wasted so much time in my life.  I have wasted so many opportunities.  It is frustrating to think about.  I hate wasting time.  I hate being unproductive.  I hate laziness.  But so often,  I have allowed myself to waste time.  I have allowed myself to be unproductive, and have allowed myself to indulge […]

Self-Control

Self-control.  The mastery over one’s spirit.  The mastery over one’s thoughts, feelings, and emotions.  Self-control demonstrates strength.  Maturity.  Humility.  Power.  Self-control delays impulse.  Delays instant gratification.  Delays natural instinct.  Self-control is learned.  It must be practiced.  It takes patience.  Endurance.  Discipline.  Focus.  Willingness.  Few understand the value of self-control.  Few understand the importance of self-control.  […]

Keep Smiling

Keep smiling.  Just.  Keep.  Smiling.  There are no perfect days.  No day goes exactly as planned.  Things happen.  Stuff happens.  Life happens.  This is fact.  Truth.  Reality.  People are crazy.  Rude.  Inconsiderate.  Inconsistent.  Angry.  Lazy.  Complacent.  Comfortable.  You and I can’t change people.  Not one person.  We can’t change certain things, certain situations.  Again, fact.  […]

Step Out

Step out.  Step out into the darkness.  Step out into the unknown.  Step out into the possibilities.  Step out into the beauty.  Step out of the comfort.  Step out of the complacency.  Step out of the laziness.  Step out of the crowd.  Step out of your pride.  Step out of your arrogance.  Step out of […]

The Natural Mind

I want to live in a routine.  I naturally want to live a life of comfort.  Knowing always what is next.  My mind wants routine.  My mind fights to remain comfortable.  The natural mind will do everything in its power to protect you, protect itself.  To preserve.  The natural mind will lead you astray.  The […]

What I Need

What do I need, not, what do I want.  What do others need, not, what do they want.  This is all the difference.  You live for needs, not wants.  You live a life of delayed-gratification.  You put the needs of others ahead of your own, sometimes, not all the time.  You learn the art and […]
