Are you Living or Existing?!

 

Everyone gets to a point in there life, where they question; if they are on the right path to living? I don’t believe anyone is ever born saying they just want to exist in this world. They come from the womb full of life, but than life happens! The moment the body is born it begins to die! As we go through each day we are so consumed by what we have to do versus what we would like to do.

It’s hard trying to find out where you are going with your life and if it is fulfilling you as would hope. Than you start to wonder if you are actually taking action on these things that run through your mind. We all get caught up in having to pay bills, living pay check to pay check, providing for the ones we love and being over burdened by the other things that happen to us in this world. We start to lose ourselves and we start to lose our passion for living.

This is the moment we have to stop, breathe and whoo saw. Life is too short to just exist. You have to live every day like it is your last. If you went to the doctor today and he said, ” I’m sorry but you only have 3 months to live?” what would you do then? There is a way to live and still take care of your priorities. We don’t know where time is going to take us or what could happen tomorrow, but we can control today! Stop to think about how you can change your life so you are LIVING AND NOT EXISTING! Make the decision today THAT THE ONLY REGRETS YOU WANT TO HAVE, ARE THOSE THAT YOU CAN FORGIVE AND RE-LIVE! WILL YOU LIVE OR EXIST?

Change is Coming!

I know it’s hard right now and you don’t know where to turn, CHANGE IS COMING!

I know you’re holding onto hope, but it feels like everything is coming against you; CHANGE IS COMING!

I know you’re tired of the bills piling up and there being no food in your fridge, CHANGE IS COMING!

I know you’re sick of asking for gas money just to make it to work, CHANGE IS COMING!

I know you wish someone would be there for you and tell you everything is alright, CHANGE IS COMING!

I know you’re holding the weight of your family on you’re shoulders and you can’t give up, because if you do they drown in their comfortability; CHANGE IS COMING!

I know you pray every day and night asking God why me and feel he doesn’t hear you; CHANGE IS COMING!

CHANGE IS COMING TO THOSE THAT GIVE THEIR PRAYER FAITH AND THEIR EXPECTATION VISION! CHANGE IS COMING BECAUSE YOU WERE BORN FOR A PURPOSE AND NOT ONLY TO EXIST ON THIS EARTH! HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT AND YOUR SOUL WITH EVERYTHING YOU HAVE LEFT, BECAUSE EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR YOU AND NOT AGAINST YOU! BEFORE YOU LEAST EXPECT IT, GOD TURNS THE SILENCE INTO BLESSING AND THE SUFFERING INTO VICTORY! SO STAY STRONG WARRIOR, BECAUSE CHANGE IS COMING!!

 

I Refuse!

Everyday I have to take care of my priorities, before I take care of myself. I am a mother of three boys, I have cars and bills that need to be paid on time. I am someone who has to do it, even if I don’t want to do it.

For example, staying at a job that I don’t want to do anymore, but I have no choice. There is no one that can pick up the weight to relieve me. I’m ok with that, but what I’m not ok with; is doing it for the rest of my life. I refuse to live from pay check to pay check and not have a home. I refuse to sit here and settle for less and be stuck at a job that will never satisfy me. I refuse to let this world dictate my situation just because I had my first son at eighteen years old. I refuse to quit! I refuse to say it’s ok that other people can become successful, but I can’t!

No, I can! I will work it out to where I can switch to a job that will allow me to work towards my future. I will get a home for my boys by the time I’m 30 because they deserve it. My husband and I will travel the world when we get older and not have to worry about money. I refuse to believe any less! I refuse to let situations in life take my joy and my progress away from me! I refuse to let the things that people say stop me from moving forward, because one day I will be giving them part of that dream come true! They will have nothing left to say at that moment, but I refuse to boast! I will continue to stay humble and trust in God! I refuse to die and leave no legacy behind for the ones I love!

Watch me make this happen, because I refuse not to!

Life

img_3111When life makes you feel a certain way keep on keeping on. There will be moments where you feel as though everything is coming against you and there is no way out but there is! We often let life cripple our minds and think we cannot change our circumstance. We think because the people around us didn’t get further that we are limited as well.

I am here to let you know that your life is only limited as much as you allow it. Everyone is aware of some of the greats that have lived in this world; Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King Jr., Thomas Edison, Kobe Bryant, Ghandi, and those excellent Olympic Figures from every country. They are all amazing people that accomplished phenomenal moments in history. They used their gifted talents to change the world. They went beyond the negative comments and the people that tried to stop them in their path. They fought for what they believed in and didn’t allow all the negativity to take away their dream come true. They succeeded because they did not doubt!

I know that life can throw so much towards you at once. It gives you that feeling of wanting to give up. It will feel like there is no hope to hold onto, but there is! You were born for a great purpose and don’t let anyone tell you anything differently! Life is made to be conquered by you, not the other way around.

Try to Understand

Try to understand we are people everyday no matter our skin color…

We hustle hard and try making a living each day. Just because you have more money than me doesn’t make you better. Just because you don’t have two nickels to rub together doesn’t make you a loser. Just because you were raised in the church doesn’t make you a saint. Just because you were raised in the hood doesn’t mean you didn’t graduate.

Try to understand I have a life to live too…

The life of someone you don’t know always has a story behind it. The life of someone you do know might have a tragic scene aside it. The life of someone you don’t know could have death or happy endings. The life of someone you do know could have forgiveness while it’s mending.

Try to understand what I’m saying is my own perception…

I was told to act this way and that; and to learn to not blow it. I was only taught what my mother or father were given and show it. I’ll continue to make my decisions as the person I am. My past is not my present I will take a stand.

Try to understand…

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The Good, the bad and the ugly. That is what life consist of. Life gets crazy sometimes and you don’t know where to turn. The good gives you light at the end of the tunnel; so you can keep that little bit of hope you have left. The bad and the ugly is altogether scary and horrible. In the midst of all this your testimony is created. For those of you who don’t know what a testimony is; it is the moments in your life that define who you are and what you have been through. You were put on this earth for a great purpose. You have to take these moments and share it with others. Your testimony can do great changes in someone’s life. We are so quick to react to people and the way they are sometimes that we don’t see what they have hidden behind all their emotion. There is so much to relate to in someone else that we need to use our testimony to reveal it. So the next time you come across someone having a bad day with a whole lot of attitude just think to yourself; ” what happened to that person in their life to make them act this way?” Next thing you know your having compassion for them.
