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!

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.
