Telling it like it is

like-it-is2

As I continue my writing on scattered thoughts in life this year, I hope to introduce new content which will provoke thought and inspire the mind. Speaking openly and honestly, I intend to tell it like it is which includes the good, bad and the ugly side of life. It is my hope you find value in what I have to say about my experiences living everyday, and lessons I’ve learned along the way.

We all have something we can learn from each other on our road to living our best life. I believe most people are really interested in the cakes, candies and sweets that life have to offer. However its through the ugly or sour side we learn what it truly means to be human.

We find out life is a balancing act and no one has cornered the market on perfection. It’s like an inexperienced juggler juggling several balls, and one may fall causing a temporary disruption. However, like the juggler, you slowly gather yourself and pick up the pieces of the ups and downs in life and put it back together again. That’s real life…

Everyday you turn on the news, you hear  stories of the good, bad and ugly side in our world. The stories hope to inspire you or make you cringe. Yet it can also provoke thought or encourage the next Bill Gates.

So, where am I going with this? My intention is to speak honestly without glossing over what I have to say to my readers. From the time I started this blog, that has always been my intention. I have been consistent in my thoughts and expressions about the life I am living. However when life is knocking me down, it hasn’t always been easy to write about.

This year I  intend to share the good, bad and ugly side of life. I am going to tell it like it is so others can learn through my experiences and the experiences of others. We are all on this planet to learn, grow and help each other in the process. Lets be a little more transparent as we talk the talk so others may learn as we begin a New Year.

Shifting your Focus

shift-6

Shift your focus and be thankful for what you have

rather than what you don’t have.

Practice Gratefulness,

Shift your focus and reflect on the spiritual

rather than the materialistic part of life.

Things are temporary and relationships more permanent.

Shift your focus from the “I can’t” to the “I can!”

Set new goals, become more socially driven

to the needs of others.

Shift your focus from the century of the self

and selfish gain, remembering, living this life is not always

about me myself and I.

Shift your focus to give and not always to get.

Blessings will follow,

Shift your focus on possibilities rather than impossibilities.

Take a chance,

Shift your focus by getting a Masters in life from lessons

learned along the way, which has lasting value.

Shift your focus on a purpose driven life using your gifts to serve

rather than to attain more stuff.

Live a life that is meaningful, not meaningless.

AFTER THE STORM

politics

For the first time, in a long time,  I was at a lost for words. I was unsure of what I wanted to write about because of the economic climate in our country. Numb and paralyzed based on the series of event that took place this past week, my mind was in a state of confusion.

2016

We the people elected our 45th President of the United States of America. His Name is Donald J Trump, whose promise of change, and his ability to hear the voices of those who are hurting in this country propelled him to a victory. His election was like an earthquake, which rippled across the world which his opponents didn’t anticipate and was totally astonished by the results.

Unfortunately, not everyone was in agreement, as protests of his candidacy sent echo’s of disenchantment around the country. It was believed based on exit polls that Mrs. Clinton would have been the presumed winner. The faces shown on television of the Democratic team, exposed their disappointment and shock which transpired after state by state fell into the hands of the Republican’s.

I believe God is in control of all things seen an unseen. So therefore, I will continue  to pray for healing of our country.

We are all concerned with the direction of this country, whether you’re on the red or blue team. The fact that the one percent elite keeps the majority of the wealth in this country and don’t pay their fair share really isn’t helping anyone. There is a lot of anger in this country because people are being taken for granted while these politicians are pursuing their own agenda. They are also tired of the struggles in Washington and their inability to help the people economically in need. The plight of everyday people has fallen on death ear.

We are all living in interesting times, and the ride is going to get bumpy in the next few years. Some people are hopeful, banking on Mr. Trump to bring about the change they seek, while others continue to demonstrate in opposition to his Presidency. There is a lot of fear and disgust due to the level of uncertainty in a world spinning out of control.

I hope and Pray we learn to come together as a people, not divided by political parties, race, or ethnicity. We the people have more common ground than differences. Over the next four years, let our voices be heard in opposition to anything which does not serve our interest.

Nuggets of Truth:  “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.”
