#MondayThoughts: (Side note)

When it feels like the world is dragging you down

And there appears to be no signs of life pulsating

When you feel like there’s no real reason to go on

Throw all that shit out the window

Just say “fuck it!”

And keep moving on

Believe that no matter how the road twists or turns, it gets better along the way and for every bump in the road, there is a double blessing ahead. Everything will be alright.

Friday Inspiration 2

However the events may unfold, God is telling a story and I believe the ending will be mind-blowing.”

Keep your heart and mind strong


Sometimes we have to walk through the fire

Or walk the high wire with no safety net

Fatigue will try to set in

But I will be damned if I allow giving up to become a trend

Seeing all things through until the end

Scripting a storybook ending

So divine

Heart and mind set

Faith primed

Not ever letting up

Middle finger up to all opposition

Made the decision long ago

Walls of Jericho coming down

The sun sitting up high like a guiding light

Living light living inside

Ass in gear on this path of freedom

Holding what’s important near and dear

Cannot wait to read the epilogue

God has written something beyond comprehension

Alive, living and breathing

#MondayThoughts:

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

#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

Head over heels

Goosebumps and chills

Vanilla shake thrills

Observing the feelings spill

King and Queen of the hill

Our lips are sealed

Hearts make an appeal

Soul merger seals the deal

Nothing can diminish the zeal

King and Queen keeping it real

When all is possible

And you believe all is possible

Then there are no sad tomorrows

Plant sitting on the window seal

Everyday waiting to greet the sun

Even a cloudy day cannot put a damper on outstretched leaves

The brilliance of the sun’s light never disappoints

The plant sees regardless of the view

Securely rooted in belief

Seeds planted will grow and the harvest will be bountiful

All is possible when you truly believe

Sad tomorrows are specks of dust

Caught in the eye once in awhile

#MondayThoughts: Slight Adjustments

“Life at anytime can become difficult; life at anytime can become easy. It all depends upon how one adjusts oneself to life. – Morarji Desai

Let the good times roll

Let the bad times not visit often

A penny saved can become a pocket full of change

Sometimes too much loose change is hard to get rid of

Yet we strive and adjust

We adapt and adjust

Peacemakers feel the sting of rejection

But they try to maintain their steps

Are dead ends without a heartbeat?

Or is there a path waiting to see life?

Keep your spirit strong and do not let your faith wane

And one day you can sit back and laugh about it all

#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.
