Are You Weird?

        When I saw this quote, I couldn’t contain myself and just had to share this with you. At some given point in our lives, we are going to feel weird, whether it’s about the way we stand out from the crowd, our level of intelligence, or the way we do things unstandardized, unique, and bold. Sometimes people can be cruel and scathing when they stand face to face with someone different from them. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel inferior, when they are the ones with insecurity issues. If you aren’t doing anything that is creating mass destruction, then that’s their problem, not yours.

What kind of weird are you?

Wonderful
Educated
Imaginative                                         OR
Revolutionary
Dynamic

                                                                                                              Wicked
                                                                                                              Envious
                                                                                                              Imbecile
                                                                                                              Rebellious
                                                                                                              Destructive

It is all right if the world thinks you’re weird. Everyone is different, so everyone is weird in someone’s eyes. Happily weird or miserably weird. Your choice. -Sadhguru

🌞 Rise and Shine

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” -Marcus Aurelius

        This morning, the alarm clock went off, and perhaps you pushed the snooze button or maybe not. Yet whether or not you wanted to get out of bed, you probably had to. You may not feel like going to work or wherever you need to be this morning, but why waste the day moping, zapped from the energy to make the day count with productivity from the opportunity this day presents? Too often we miss the precious chances that could elevate us to a new level simply because we just didn’t feel like getting out of bed.

        So today, take a moment to reflect on the possibilities that could champion you to look better, be better and do better. Rise and shine boys and girls!

Easy to Hate, Difficult to Love

It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get. -Confucius

Today we begin a brand new month, the month of May. So let’s think a little about what we “May” and can do.

Month Of May Doodle

May we hate less and love more.
May we be kind to one another, gentle with one another.
May we always be curious.
May we do something positive today and avoid the negative.
May we lift someone up instead of deliberately trying to tear them down.

May we offer to feed someone instead of turning the other way as they starve to death.
May we be better than we were yesterday.
May we be an angel of life to others instead of the angel of death to many.
May we uplift dreamers instead of being dream killers.
May we be the light that shines in someone’s hour of darkness.
May we be the stewards God meant for us to be.

💐Happy May!💐

The Poetry of Perseverance

“A river cuts through rock not because of its power, but because of its persistence.” – Unknown

Perseverance isn’t something you say, it’s something that you do. Poetry isn’t merely a slew of words, it’s what the words mean, how they make you feel, and what they make you do.

Motivation to Improve Our Situation

My Morning Thought!

Don’t risk losing your compassion, heart, and humanity. Envy and negativity can be corrosive and such corrosion can destroy our sensitivity and peace of mind. Be kind to yourself. Count your many blessings and show great gratitude for the grace given to you!

Empowered to Empower on Monday Motivation

“Some women can easily get lost in the fire, but strong women are built from it”. -Unknown

Spiritual Constipation

“You are the stars and the world is watching you. By your presence, you send a message to every village, every city, every nation. A message of hope. A message of victory.” -Eunice Kennedy Shriver

Everyone is feeling a bit overwhelmed these days because everything feels like they are spinning out of control. So many people question their sanity or even feel like they are losing their minds at the unimaginable, unfathomable, and unintelligible events occurring around the world. All too often, we find our spirits stuffed with spiritual garbage that people and situations are force-feeding us with. This blockage is clogging our spirits and bloating our souls. Sometimes our spiritual constipation needs a laxative to flush out those spiritual toxins, stressors, aggravators, and agitators leaving us feeling lethargic, confused, and bloated with discouragement.

A friend of mine said to me, “The world has gone mad.” I told her, “I think the world has been mad for a long time now. We just can’t go mad with them!” Somebody has to remain sane when the world stops spinning out of control, and we have to be the leaders of hope. 

Each person’s situation may be different, but the elements that try to drive us crazy and make us depressed are being served from the same diabolical pot. Find a way to flush out your system and then feed your spirit with nutritious spiritual food.

“Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” —Golda Meir

We Got This! 👍🏼

I think those of us who weathered the bitter winter conditions are biting at the bit and ready for Spring to arrive. With the touch and go, back and forth warm and cold temperatures, I noticed that my canna lily buds have broken ground, and are shooting up. The one good thing about flowers that are perennials is that you don’t have to pamper them. It’s as if they are saying, “I got this!”

You know, our lives can be as perennial as the grass and flowers. We go through our periods of slowing down and even dormancy in some cases. Then, it’s as if the sun yells at us one unexpected day, telling us to get up and get going! We are suddenly reawakened and renewed. Like those buds bursting through the dirt, I am ready to burst into the new season of growing, developing, and discovering something new. By golly, like all of you, let’s do this! You got this. I got this. We got this! Get it? Got it? Good!
