I want to share with you guys something that made me think, and it is actually calling me to act, Does Your Public Self Line Up With Your Personal Self, (Devon Franklin). Now you know what this means, it means do you honor yourself internally and personally the way you perform or conduct your self publicly, and I have to admit I can do a lot better. I believe when these two acts line up together you are at peace, and there is nothing to hide or nothing to fabricate, you are just who you say you are. I do believe you have to hit a level of maturity and to figure out if you want the world to know you are to know what you want them to know, there is a difference and I guess you have to begin with knowing yourself and who you are most of all what can you offer of yourself in service to others. I know I have some work to do but I learn something today, and when you learn you teach Maya Angelou,
Custom design your life, alter the size of your circle that fit and only compliments your custom life plan, change the atmosphere where your life project can most thrive and serve a purpose. Create a wide open space and allow the delightful opportunities to fill your life design with what your heart desires. The path to abundace is created and designed by your best life projects and custom made vision, you determine what your life is made of and in what way it serves, the splender and delight is a amazing bonus, so take it along the way. Create your masterpiece, its up to you to make it spectaculrly abundant.
How do I say thank you for the gifts that God has given me, how do I thank him enough for the gift of life, and the ability to use what I have been given to serve in any way I can. There are no words to express my gratitude for the life and well being of my children, most of all I thank God for bringing and birthing my children into a free world, a place where they can be who God created them to be, where they can be beautiful and imperfectly perfect in their own right. Thank you, verbally can be express with my mouth. Thank you can also be express in how you honor your own life, how you choose to use your gift to serve others, how you give of yourself to teach, and to learn, to serve, and to love demonstrates great gratitude to the world. To be free is not a privilege or something another man can gift to you, it is a right and the privilege is how you use it to gift another man.
I am so impressed and in love with Humanity, there is nothing more powerful than love it is the beginning the substance and the ending of all things, and I cannot ever get used to the way it transcends, transforms, and heals. Its reach is limitless and I cannot think of one thing in my life that the pure effects of love have not touched. I know that there are those that have yet to find their way or a way to fulfill their purpose to others, and are still struggling and lost with very little options, but there are also many many people that for the most part are making a point to be better and to make the world a better place, and I know and feel we are getting really close to doing that, I think that a lot of us want that for each other and there are people working toward that and are inspiring others to do the same, so yes, I believe in us changing the world it is possible and humanity is such a vital element in doing so, I have seen it, I can feel it and it is an amazing experience, it is powerful and transforming, and a beautiful thing to see, humanity is like having a Magic wand and those that are touched are forever touched, and that brings about goodness in the world.
If you’re waiting for life to get easier before you begin to show up, then I guess we will never meet. The way to success depends on how much your willing to work for it, and yes its difficult and moments of pure helplessness and confusing will be overwhelming, so cry through the tears and hurt through the failure but keep moving, nobody can move that train but you. I can honestly tell you that there are times I am completely lost and out of ideas but my desperation and uncomfortably drives me through it, praying to God to please show me the way, direct me to another idea or opportunity that will help me understand what my next move should be and to allow me to see or figure out that next idea that can work for me. search, learn to discover the possible openings into a new idea or option until you hit pay dirt. It’s there it will happen, one of those ideas or prayers are going to open that door for you, that door that is made only for you so keep thinking, keep crying through the tears, keep failing, and most of all keep believing because it will happen, one of the doors is yours just keep exploring until it opens.
5 Signs You’re Settling for Less Than You Deserve
Some years ago, I was shopping and came upon a beautiful red dress. The color, style and length were perfect. But the store didn’t have it in my size. It did, however, have the same dress in navy, which I wasn’t crazy about. Then I noticed a pair of blue shoes nearby that complemented that blue dress. (I didn’t love those, either.) So what did I do? I bought both. I was afraid I wouldn’t find anything else, so I settled. (It won’t surprise you to learn that I’ve never worn the dress or the shoes.)
You’ve probably heard the saying “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.” Here’s a question: Why put up with any devil? Why not give ourselves only good things? When we believe we cannot have what we desire—when we lack faith in ourselves and in the goodness of life—we settle for less. We decide that whatever is in front of us is better than nothing. But believe me when I tell you that better than nothing isn’t good enough.
I often see people settle for less than they deserve in personal relationships: accepting bad behavior, excusing broken promises, accommodating people who take more than they give. Why? Because doing things we’ve grown accustomed to is familiar, comfortable.
Which is why sometimes it can be tough to gauge whether we’re settling: When we tell ourselves that things are fine, we soon forget that they could be better. Here’s how to know whether you’re putting up with less than you deserve:
- When you have to work yourself into a state of excitement rather than naturally experiencing joy and passion, you’re probably settling.
- When you bargain with yourself about what you can do without rather than feeling gratitude for what you already have, you’re probably settling.
- When your focus is on the time and energy you’ve invested in an endeavor rather than the love, joy and gratification you’ve gained, you’re probably settling.
- When you’re making excuses about why you should stay put rather than going for what you truly want, you’re probably settling.
- When you spend more time complaining about what you have than appreciating it, you’re definitely settling.But there is a lesson to be learned in everything. When we realize we’ve been settling, we discover what we actually believe. We learn that we perhaps think ourselves undeserving of happiness and find how susceptible we are to outside influences—because often we settle when others convince us it’s the right thing to do. Most important, we learn that we are not standing fully in our truth. Armed with this information, we can make new choices that support our desires—by beginning to believe that we can have what we really want.
