We will have to say goodbye to many things in life.

Never can say, “Goodbye.” Jackson 5, Michael was about 10 years old when the song was written. It was a hit.  I loved to sing the song at a young age of about 10, not thinking I was actually going to have to say goodbye to many things through life whether want to or not things will change.  The weather will change, the people you hang around will change, and the ones you are close to will one day will not be there.  You will say goodbye to many things as time goes on, places and people are the hardest.  Many people have a hard time with the loss of animals, it can hurt as hard as a parent or child.

It’s true, you never can say goodbye because there will be pain and heartache that will follow you.  However, as time goes on, you will have to also.

 

 

 

 

 

Will you be ready to say, goodbye, to people and things in your life?

What are their things that you can’t say goodbye to?

What will cause you pain and heartache in your life?

You can show others how to live well.

Does your life have a meaning?  We all come into this world the same way, and we grow with every experience that we have in life.  We can show others how to live well, when we are happy and enjoying life.

Most animal will protect their territory and their young, it means everything to them. Your values are an example of how you lead your life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are things we want in life, however, are their things that you will and will not stand for also.  They can dictate your choices and what you want for your life.   Your values mean something your choices.

Who can see great things from you? You just have to be living and showing others how to live well.  A person who lives well will be showing others by their values.

The people who inspire me are the ones who always have something going on in their lives, the ones who are always looking for the next opportunity, someone who has a plan in the works, a person who is down for whatever comes their way.  I admire people who love are happy in the good and bad times.  They are the ones who are always doing something toward the future which is what we all should be doing.  Your future is what you want it to be, it has to have value and mean something

Change is good

It is a new day.

A new beginning.

Life is good.

You get up every day and prepare for a new day.  We change are clothes from what we worn the day before, we shower and comb our hair in order to look fresh for a new day.  It is a new beginning that comes along with a new day.  Life is good when you know that you can start again.  What is it that you would want to change from the day from before?

We should never hold on to issues that we can’t change.  It is hard to sleep when you can let something go.  You won’t move on if you are stuck in the same place.

I was given some good advice from someone one day.  I thought this person knows, so I went to work to make some changes.  We all are never to old to changes.  Listen when someone tells you something with an open mind, it may be important and just what you need to know.

What have you done to make life better for other?

We all have to look the mirror at where we were and where we are going in life.  This year there was a large stand with the #timesup movement and the silent breakers.  Many big name people donated to the case including Oprah.  If you have ever seen or experienced sexual unfairness on the job then you know why it is a worthy cause.  Of course, it would not have happen if one person did not take a stand.  One person was willing to stand up and tell it like it is.  Every time someone brings up issues that we know about, but are too afraid to speak up about the in justice, it shamed us all.  Think about all the years when those white only and black only water fountains exited.  There are many people including Dr Martin Luther King who step and said no more of this in justice.  Happy Birthday Dr. King, we honor you the standing up.

Dig in Deep, mean doing a little more.

I was a single mother, I have over three degrees, and I worked most of my life, there were some hard times. I had to work so each morning I had to get up early enough to my son to childcare in a limited amount of time in before work.   There is a lot of responsibility that comes a long being a single parent.  While my son was young I decided to go back to school for my degree, so there was very little time for a social life.  It was a choice I made, just as many single parent who want to do better in life.  I was blessed to have a family who supported me by picking up my son when I worked late or had class.  In order to gain, you have to do a little more, dig in deep.

 

There are many people  who know about sacrificing in order to make things better in life for them and their future.  Sure their were some regrets along the way, disappointment, but you can never be disappointed with the things that you try in life.  Even if you don’t succeed in something that you worked hard for, you still will gain some in the long run.  You never know what your made of unless you know your strengths.

 

Take some chances by doing a little more in your life.

Don’t kill off others by burning the bridge.

I was watching a movie where these people had to cross a bridge when they were chased by someone who was going to kill them. They wanted to cut the bridge so that the killers would not cross, however, not everyone had made it yet. Some wanted to go back for the others, but it was too late the bridge has been cut. They stood as the others that had been left behind were being killed. Would you have cut the bridge and sacrificed other so that you can survive?

 

A brother may be cut off, a mother left behind for someone may choose to burn the bridge, it sad to your survival over others.   For the best life, don’t burn bridges when you can choose to help others.  It goes both, what goes around, comes around.

Check yourself, before you wreck yourself

I wanted to be…


“I am sorry if I failed you”, do you say that when you look in the mirror?

We all have to take responsibility for our situation, at some point in life.  The things that you do or did not do for you will affect your life.  It will make your life better or worst.

As you go through life, you as many of us will never get a chance to do half the things that you would have liked to do.  In fact, most of us have no goals or plans for what we would like to do.  Later on, we can feel as if we were cheated because things have not gone our way.  We can get disappointed in everything, even ourselves.  Don’t continue to let yourself down.  Examine you.

Congratulations to you for purchasing your first car, you are now a homeowner, they have given you the position as Supervision.  We get blessed with the things we are hoping for, and when the times comes, there are thoughts that come will to mind. 

You may be happy about achieving a goal, but I come with pressure.  You will have to give up on some things when you take on something new.  You will have to make some sacrifices, even with good things that happen to you in life, there is a price.

They put your new baby in your hands and you are happy, however, there will be years of responsibility.  


Hard times are not limited to bad times, in life, there will be many.  It can feel like the pressure of hard times, even when we get things we wanted in life.

How would you like it?

 

 

 

How would you like it?  

 

 

 

 

 

 

That is what they ask you when you are ordering certain meats at a restaurant. Of course, purchasing fast food you won’t get options other than what is listed on the menu other than small or large side order. There is always an option with everything that we do, and you do get to choose.

Most of us when you choose for the meat to be prepared rare, medium, or well done, we know what we expect it to look at taste like.  

You have to look at life the same way.  Do you want a good life or a great one? Who will prepare it for you?  What are your options?

There are many steps that you will have to go through in order to get where you would like to be in life.  What are you ordering in your life?

 

Enjoy the meal:

Follow who, what are you talking about?

We all are living in some difficult times, confusion is everywhere that can make life hard for us to manage, but doesn’t have to be the end of your story.   There are people who will help you along the way in life some of them our parents, family, and friends, others that you know.   Following the right instructions can help you, or just doing as others who are going in the same direction that you want to go can take you to another level.  We all need help in life, no one can do everything, or know what is ahead if you have never been that way before.

 

 

The Bible says,

12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

John 8:12

 

You have to be willing to follow in the direction that you are being led, and you will see the light.  Have faith, in order to have a better life.
