Be not afraid of going slowly, be afraid only of standing still.

There will be obstacles

There will be distractions

There will be deterrents

There will be voices

There will be doubts

There will be plenty of reasons for you to stop, to call it quits, to just give up.

Don’t stop, don’t quit, don’t give up. Easier said than done at times.

When the vision is clear, the results will appear. Keep your mindset positive as you work your plan, flourish, and always remember why you started.
– Germany Kent

The critics will criticize

Those that envy you will try to damper your enthusiasm

And those that don’t understand will simply try to confuse you

Feelings come and go but the decision to believe is a matter of choice. It’s not based on what you see, it is based on agreement that what you desire, want, hope for, will come to pass. Everyday brings new thoughts to go with what you’ve already been thinking. Try to stay aligned with your goal, we might teeter at times but as long as we don’t fall completely over, we can make it.

Don’t stop, you can make it

Disappear & Reappear

Hard times seem to disappear

Reasons why reappear

Declarations stamp out all fear

Determination makes things clear

Heart stirred

Vision undisturbed



Momentarily frozen

Saved for a date unchosen

When binding circumstances disappear

The once deaf world will begin to hear

A most extraordinary story as it reappears….

#ThoughtfulThursday: Enlightenment

For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.

#MondayThoughts: Not Always Roses, But…..

Learn from roses; even when trampled they give off perfume, not despair.

Life is not always beautiful

Yet beauty is always there

Things may not always go as we want

Yet we are capable of still going

Everyday will not be a smooth one

Yet we can learn how to overcome the rough spots

Life will not always be rosey

Yet the fragrance of hope will pull us through
