P.S. I Love You

I want to share life. I want to share life with you. I enjoy my alone time. I enjoy my solitude. I enjoy being free to do what I want. But I am beyond ready to give up that freedom. It’s not about me. It’s not about what I want, my alone time, my solitude, […]

Please and Thank You

Please and thank you. Simple words. Powerful words. Kind words. Words of manner. Words that seem to have been lost. When I was growing up, I was instructed to use my manners. I was instructed to say please, to say thank you. Today, I rarely hear anyone, young or old, use please and thank you. […]

You Never Know…….

You never know the impact you may have on the life of a child. A rightly spoken word or a timely action, could literally, alter a child’s life. As we shift from adolescent to adult, as the years go by, most of us tend to lose the innocence, the beauty, and the purity of childhood. […]

Surrounded

Time and again, I have found myself surrounded by people. People who are negative, lazy, and who live in absolute contrast to the way I live. Being surrounded by these individuals sucks. But I have learned, and am learning, that through these individuals, I can gain knowledge. I can gain knowledge about others. What makes […]

Detach

Remove yourself from your feelings and emotions.  Step outside of yourself in order to think, see, and hear clearly.  Too often, we are lost in ourselves.  Lost in our feelings, emotions, anxieties, fears, and sorrows.  Too often, we can’t get past the inner self, in order to accomplish the tasks to reach our full potential.  […]

Fake

There are a lot of fake people in this world.  Fake in what they say, fake in what they do, and fake in how they portray themselves.  It’s pathetic.  People are trying to be something or someone in order to gain some kind of recognition.  In order to gain some sort of financial backing.  In […]

Inside

This is what is inside of me right now.  Deep within.  Deep within my soul, my spirit, my inner man.  It’s brewing.  It’s burning.  It’s been brewing.  It’s been burning.  I can’t ignore it.  I don’t want to ignore it.  I know it is who I am.  I know it is what I am.  I […]

Change

One of the most difficult endeavors in life is change.  Naturally, none of us likes change.  Our mind wants to live life on auto-pilot.  Our mind will fight to keep us on cruise-control.  Doing the same things, the same way, over and over again, day in and day out.  Our mind will fight for routine, […]

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 […]

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.  […]
