Above you will find one of my favorite photographs taken somewhere Jamaica. It opens doors to all kinds of stories. In the most literal sense, I smiled through the pain of wearing those glass-heeled spikes.
This now begs the question, are you mindful of the auditory and visual perceptions that hit your brain waves? In other words, do you believe everything that you see and hear then allow it to control your behavior and emotions without seeking the truth. While it is important to gather all the facts that is reasonably needed, we have to refrain from sitting and waiting for the next piece of negative news item from your media outlet or the opinions of others to fill our cups. Below you will find some of the things I have discovered about this journey called life in the most simplest and concise form that I want you to substitute for upliftment and inspiration. As a classroom teacher, I wholeheartedly believe in caring for the populace, so please feel free to share it with your teenage daughters and sons or just about anyone.
Gratitude has absolutely nothing to do with what you physically have. It is what you become as a result of having those physical things.
Change involves an avalanche of motion and the motivational force of language.
I have come to realize that health has no association with physical aesthetics.
It does not require a full belly to offer kindness and prayer to a nation, group of people or individual going through a period of storm.
Thank You for accepting us in the form that we are. Even when we do wrong, you will never say, mate you do not belong. Thank You for creating us to see beyond our ordinary, limited perceptions of ourselves.
Never allow the dysfunctional operation of life to wear you down!
Nowhere in history have I seen or read where people were rewarded for going through periods of wars, pandemics, slavery, endless genocide, irrational fears. Instead, they were given loads of thumbs up for jumping over the hurdles.
Every morning feed your soul with a running spiritual theme of the week.
Yes you are good at running, but you cannot train people to run. It is something you are good at, but you don’t get a dime for it until you become better at demonstrating it to others.
Patience requires maturity. It is knowing that life requires you to show up for a task 80% of the time and being aware that the next 20% is observing to see what will happen. Which is more crucial? The 20% or the 80%?
Life is not a crystal stairway for anyone, but that does not mean life is that “livable”. Life does not present to us the most basic ways of existence. Neither does it present the most challenging form to survive. We all can jump over the hurdles by cutting away that which is negatively consuming us.
