Best Decisions

The best decision you can make for your life is to walk away from anything that stand in the way of your happiness. Life is too short to live it unhappy.

Look Life In the Eyes and Smile

Today many of us face challenging times. Perhaps your well laid out plans have been met with obstacles and curveballs. It may seem as if there is no use trying, you should give up, but don’t. Press on even when there seems to be no hope, press on. Press on, even though you feel like giving up, press on. Look life in the eyes and smile. Promise yourself that despite the obstacles you won’t give up. Never forget that the darkest hours come before morning. Your time will come, press on!

The Trump Era

Trump’s rise to presidency was not an accident. White Evangelicals were opposed to Barack Obama and they resisted his presidency. Not surprising as this was the same group of people who for centuries used the bible to convince black folks that slavery was justified by God and they should obey their masters. It did not please them to see one elevate to the height of presidency.

Not once did they say God bless President Obama. But God sits high and he looks low and he blessed Obama’s presidency. Eight years, no scandal, no chaos. He ruled with dignity and integrity.

Then came Donald Trump, a man known for unfair business deals, a womanizer and adulterer.  A man who spoke derogatory about women even going as far as saying he grab them by the pu..y.  

Evangelicals presented him as a man of God. They claimed he was sent by God and he was going to do great things for America. Their overpowering influence caused many to believe the lie.

But unlike Obama who they despised; Trump’s presidency was rocked by one scandal after another. It was full of hate, bigotry, and division. Many of the people around him were either accused of crimes or convicted for crimes. He failed to put the people first when the Corona Virus crisis hit, focusing more on the stock market.

White Evangelicals tried to fool the people again not knowing Trump’s purpose had already been accomplished and God had exposed them for who they are.

The funny thing is, Trump could have made a difference in uniting the people. He could perhaps have convinced his base who were mainly white, racist individuals that he was president for all, and he wanted a nation where people of all color or race live in unity. His base adored him. They might have listened. Instead he fueled the flames of hate and division.

That is not of God. That is not who God is. That was not what well thinking Americans wanted for the country.  The people have spoken and he need to respect the wishes of the American people.

Longing For a RETURN TO THE nORM

Like me, you are probably tired of hearing about the Corona Virus. However it is here, it is real, and we have to be sensible. It is up to each of us to do our part to stop the spread. It will not go away at the wave of a magic wand, although we all wish it would.

Don’t put yourself at unnecessary risk. Avoid crowds, wear a mask, practice social distancing. Adapt to a new norm. The sooner this is over the better, but remember we all have to do our part.

Five Secrets to a Happy Life

  1. Accept yourself for who you are and love yourself. You must learn to look in the mirror and love what you see, the image of who you are. Loving yourself is the first step towards happiness.
  2. Make peace with your past. Forgive those who need to be forgiven. Cut ties with those who cares nothing about your happiness. Surround yourself with positive, uplifting people who motivate and inspire you.
  3. Do not harbor bitterness or resentment in your heart towards anyone because in the end it will stifle your inner growth and peace of mind.
  4. Be kind to yourself. Pamper yourself every once in a while. Do something that makes you happy and make it all about you, you deserve it.
  5. Learn to say no. Remember that you are not here to save the world, so do not take on more than you can handle because you might not want to displease someone. You are never going to be able to please everyone or be everything for everyone. You must be able to say no and feel no guilt about doing so
