If you have never had an actual hemorrhoid, please go on your knees and pray you never ever experience the life-threatening pain that comes with it. I never thought it would happen to me. I live a healthy lifestyle, attend aerobics classes, hardly eat bread, can’t remember the last time I bought sugar…. basically I never thought hemorrhoids could come from my healthy lifestyle. Just … Continue reading Your ‘Hemorrhoid’ Shall Pass
I love love this song for one reason – it echoes a truth many of us are uncomfortable with. In this world of selfies, blessers, filtered photos and life masks, many of us aim to project our lives as perfect. Everyone wants the world to believe they are perfectly healthy, perfectly married with perfect kids, the perfect job, the perfect balance… the perfect lie. We … Continue reading Life is Imperfect. Get On with it
I bought a new book a few weeks ago titled “Everyday deserves a chance” by Max Lucado. I’ve always been a big fan of Max’s books because he seems to know exactly how to capture the essence of the time we live in, and bring God into the darkest scariest parts of our lives. I decided to share some insights from this book, and some … Continue reading Give Each Day A Chance of Its Own
I haven’t written in a while…not because I have run out of ideas, but because it appears 24 hours is insufficient these days. I still take time off every now and then to listen to people and share my insights with them; I still enjoy conversations that give me fresh topics to write about and I still have my life-reflection moments, one of which I … Continue reading Take a Break……. to Love Yourself
This morning I woke up to a realization that I seem to have a lot to do everyday, and somehow I manage to achieve to achieve them, but they are usually sent back by my boss to be re-done because he believes I can do much much better. Of course, that frustrates me every single time! Why can’t he just leave good enough alone? I’ve decided to … Continue reading Dedicate Yourself Fully
Many of us struggle with the concept of forgiveness because we do not understand it. There are many times I have told myself I’ve forgiven a person, yet the next time I lay eyes on them or see a picture of them, I feel like scratching their faces. Sometimes, I led myself to believe that if I ignored such people or cut them out of … Continue reading The Essence of Forgiveness
Have you noticed how some people seem to have everything going for them, yet for some reason, they seem to be unhappy, or perhaps even depressed. They are not enthusiastic about anything in life nor do they express interest in anything even if it is right up their alley. The problem is the attitude! There are many people on this earth who have a lot … Continue reading Have the Right Attitude
Today is my birthday so I will share a lesson I’ve come to appreciate regarding time and how it is spent. There was a time I was unemployed, and I spent a good chunk of my time watching TV, eating, visiting friends to discuss the same old issues, and simply just created a routine around nothing in particular. Yes, I applied for jobs as often … Continue reading What Are You Spending Time On?
Do you have a vision that you just can’t shake? Is there a place of success that your eyes keep drifting towards when you try to focus on other things? Are you perhaps complaining right now that you don’t have the tools you need, or the connections, or the experience or the degree you require to take you to where you need to be? Stop! … Continue reading What’s in Your Hand Right Now?
There are times when it seems like nothing we wish for is coming to fruition. No matter how hard we work, it seems like the universe is conspiring against us. So when people come with news of their successes at such times, it is difficult for us to celebrate with them. Sometimes, the success of others can remind us of our own failures, but I … Continue reading Celebrate Others!
