#ThoughtfulThursday: Worthwhile

Have patience with all things but first with yourself. Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being. You are perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist. And no amount of triumphs or tribulations can ever change that.

#ThoughtfulThursday: Level Up

You bring out the best in people when you trust them with a higher-vision of themselves. You keep them at lower-levels when you treat them like you see them with your physical eyes.

#MondayThoughts: Facing Opposition

When they judge you, yawn.
When they misunderstand you, smile.
When they underestimate you, laugh.
When they condemn you, ignore.
When they envy you, rejoice.
When they oppose you, prevail.

-Matshona Dhliwayo

There are those with opposing views than your own. There are people and situations that may impede your progress. We can be pressed or pressured into giving up by whom or whatever opposes us. What we decide to do is our call and no one else’s.

Life can be a trip, with its peaks and lows. Sometimes it is a gold rush, other times it can be a rusty bucket. Regardless of the day and what gets in our way, we have to find our get up and go and keep going. We can face the opposition or we can do an about face. Just remember it is your call.

Stay inspired and keep rising.

#ThoughtfulThursday: Bruce Lipton

Here is the amazing thing: the caterpillar and the butterfly have the exact same DNA. They are the same organism but are receiving and responding to a different organizing signal.

Amazing, Isn’t It

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.

– Anais Nin

Isn’t it amazing

The people you meet

That stand with you through the agony

And help you rise from defeat

Isn’t it amazing

How bridges get burned

By those who spurn you

Who didn’t want to put together the clues

Of all the pieces glued together that formed you

Isn’t it amazing

As the world turns

We continue to grow through experiences

And all that we have learned

Now look in the mirror

Aren’t You amazing

You’re still here

Grabbing the bull by the horns

Or the tiger by the tail

Whatever the day delivers

You give it your all….

Striving to prevail
