What’s the point of Complaining?

quiet time2

Have you ever noticed in life,

no matter how much you complain,

some things remain the same.

We all have a habit of complaining about something we are unhappy with in our lives. Life can be very daunting and troubling at times, but complaining and refusing to make a decision to change the quality of your life will only keep you in limbo. Expressing frustration and sadness due to your circumstances will not bring about the change you seek to live a new reality.  To complain is to express feelings of pain, dissatisfaction, or resentment of something going on in your life. Its a displeasure and if left to fester can be a habit that is really hard to break unless you take action. We all have moments when we are unhappy about our journey we are experiencing from day-to-day. As the days turn into weeks and weeks turn into months, years later, with all the complaints nothing has truly changed.  We always find excuses for not accomplishing our goals. To add  fuel to the fire, we find others who would listen to our complaints and when given any advice it sometimes fall on death ear. So what can we do to change our thinking in order to promote a season of change?

I’ve asked myself that question many times as I searched for answers as to the riddle of my life’s purpose. Thus I am also guilty as charged. Through my writing I am constantly asking myself the tough questions and experiencing the change I’ve been searching for through the power of prayer. For you it might be something else that is boggling your mind. In order to promote a season of change the most important thing you can do is to meditate, soul search, pray and ask God to point you in the right direction. The next step is to take action and stop complaining about the things you are unhappy with in your life and focus on the positive changes occurring right before your very eyes. Make a decision to let go of the past while moving towards a new future. Commit to a project that will move you forward whether in business , Education, or a new life adventure. Get on a path to discover your full potential and start enjoying your life.



We live in a world which is constantly bombarded by noises. Whether it’s from family chatter, cars or trucks driving down the road, the sound of a lawn mower buzzing early in the morning and in my town the boom you can  hear from the quarry a couple of miles away. Quiet time is not always readily available when you are seeking time to pray and meditate.

I enjoy having quiet time first thing in the morning or late at night when my family is still asleep. The only sound I can hear in the distance are the birds singing their sweet melodies outside my window in the morning and at night, it’s the sounds of the crickets and nocturnal animals. It is not perfect but I try to meditate with very little distractions which sets a tranquil mood.

When Tragedy Strikes

sad-black-womanWhen I woke up this morning I heard the news of a shooting that occurred in the community of Charleston in South Carolina. A man with a gun entered an African American church and after one hour, while listening to them pray to God, shot and killed nine people. According to the news, this was clearly a hate crime perpetrated by a young man who obviously is very disturbed. I can’t imagine the pandemonium that took place at the time of the shooting. This man took the lives of innocent people and will affect the nine individuals entire families, friends, neighbors and leave a terrible stain on our nation.
