Do you need extra time?

It’s #Leap day, February 29.
What can you do with one extra day? Here is your chance, use it wisely. We often say we can’t get the time back; however during leap year we get an extra day, 24 more hours to do something that we should, could, or would have done.
 
A leap day is observed because a complete revolution around the Sun takes slightly longer than 365 days.

It is time to get my focus back…

Losing focus
Losing focus

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear O and friends,
I have been busy with personal things happening (the unexpected ), that I lost my focus on where I want to go.  It is time to do something different and get yourself back on track. I have dreams for myself, that will require lots of work in order to make them happen.

There are times that we get so far away from where we want to go in life that it can be hard think back to what is important.  Sometimes when you start one thing only to have the unexpected issues, you know (I didn’t see that coming), takes priority.  Then there are the times that will let others  problems become our own.  Those things can distract us enough that we forget what we wanted to accomplish.  We have to get us, and move in the direction we wanted to go for our own self.

I am the person, that others depend on when they need help.  I have to blame myself for some of it, by not saying the word, no.  It is one of my issues, not wanting to disappoint others.  These days I am the same way, but I have learned not to step up so quickly or be involved in everything that others are doing.  You have to leave time to do you.  Otherwise, you are taking away from the time that you need to accomplish your projects.  We grow by everything that has happened in our life.

Do you dream big or small?

It is a picture perfect day.

It is a picture perfect day. The water is calm and flowing. The sky is clear, for the sun to come through. Don’t we want the same in our lives?
It is a calm day on the water.
It is a calm day on the water.
To start I would like the kid not get up late for school, then ask me to give him a ride. I would like to person driving in back of me, not to be so close on my behind. I like to have peace when I start to work.
I want to think of God’s words, as I go through my trials and tribulations of the day. Most of all, I want to remember seeing this image of a beautiful day, and carry the feeling with me.
What would it take for you to have a good day?

Day Three: Clearing Out The Junk

Day three: Clearing Out The Junk

When we want to get our life, in order we have to do think that are within our reach first.  In order to move forward we have to let go of some things from the past.  There are things that we pose, such as old clothes that we will never wear again.  It is time to let go of things, so that we can make changes in your life.  When you think of the way women like to change-up their hairstyle, and look, we should always be getting rid of things.  

The minister of the church I attend obviously had been losing his hair for a while; however, the picture on the church bulletin always showed him with hair.  He looks fantastic without it.  Many people, no matter what their position in life is, can have a problem with change.

 

Find Peace

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, it is time to feel in some holes in our life with new things, and new ideas. 

Obviously, it all won’t get completed in a day, if you have over ten years worth of things.  Even if you have five you may need some time.  The worst thing is to throw out something that you will be looking for later.

 

Let’s take care of the junk, so that we can see clearly.

“I wanted to be where you are.” Tayler, Beyonce, or Bruno

“I want to be where you are.” 
It is a song by the late Michael Jackson. It was also the message that Les Brown gave at a seminar called, “Get Motivated.”
Where you are
He said he began his career by watching others and thinking I can do that.  He started with nothing, no money, no family backing, or even a college education; he has had many successful career and made millions.  His message was, where I am standing, you can be also.  Now that is motivation.  Looking at other and be inspired to do the same things or do better.
 
There are a lot of people who can sing better than Tayler Swift, and Bruno Mars, or dance better than Beyonce.  However, they do put their self out there toward making it.  I met a person at this same seminar who was a book writer.  He has made over $100,000 on a book that has not been published.  Why is it that we live by seeing others succeed, and feel disappoint that we were not the one with the success?  I have heard many success stories; most started the same way.  When you want to succeed you have to take a steps toward your goals.
 
I have been many seminars on being successful.  You can’t be disappointed in anything that you have never done for yourself.  Even if you fail, you have continue trying.
 
One of the first things I learned from reading and going to success seminars, is that you are going to fail many times before you make it.
 
The second thing is to keep on trying.  You will learn and do better, when you have failures by trying again.
I remember applying for a government job, where they would give a standard test to certify you for the position.  It was the same test they gave for each entry-level job.  I must have taken that test about five times over the next three months.  Each time I would do better on the test, by being able to read more carefully and correct a questions that I may have answered wrong on, or missed the time before.  By the times, I got my results from the last test I was in the top ten percent. 
Motivate and push yourself to do something that you are good at, then take it to another level.  I will tell you about levels that next time.

True Love comes from God…

It is Valentine Day, so many of us can appreciate the flower, candy and other things that have been given to show love.  That is what the day is all about.  However, true love comes from God. That kind of love that will stand to time, through the good and bad times.

The kind of love that comes with acceptance, regardless how things are going in your life.  He love you first, and last.

Open up you Heart

Luke 7.44-48

“Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet,s but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You did not give me a kiss,t but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You did not put oil on my head,u but she has poured perfume on my feet. 47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.”

48 Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”v

49 The other guests began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”

My Valentine, he had been there for you…

Ro.mance by Ivy Lynns

I had a dream this morning that I was getting married, except my Ex showed up with flowers just before the I do. He was disappointed, because he had asked me many times before to marry him. As I looked into his eyes, my heart started to open for the person who was front of me. I had taken this person for granted all the times we were together. To him I was his true love, that was about to walked away. He had been there all the time before waiting, to have the same feeling, my valentine.

Love can take so many turns in life. There was a special person in your life who did more, and was there for you when you needed someone; however, you did not see how special they were. Have you ever been there?

True love sometimes we do take that person for grant…
