Life has taught me never to make assumptions about people because appearance is not always what it appears to be. People may appear to be confident and have it all together yet fight daily battles that no one knows about. And often people who appear strong are seldon asked how they are doing . People simply assume that person is doing great yet that person might be the one who have struggles and put on a brave face to get through it. No matter what appearances seem it never hurts to ask, hiw are you? Are you doing ok? Sometimes all somone need is someone who will listen and understand.
Soar like an Eagle
Sometimes it is through life’s challenges that you get to know how much you are capable of. It is easy to fall among the cracks, easy to buy into the idea that you will never be good enough. Since setting for mediocrity is an easy feat it is up to you to challenge yourself to seek for more. Even when what you seek seems unattainable, never give up hope. Shut out the voices of naysayers and listen to that inner voice which whispers, it can be done. You can do it.
For God so Loved the World
He who was without sin made the ultimate sacrifice, Christ gave up His life and died on the cross for our sins. He died so that we might have life and have it more abundantly. By His blood we are cleansed and our sins are washed away. On this Good Friday let us reflect on the sacrifice that Christ made for us. It is the greatest sacrifice of all. He did what no one else would do for us.
Greatness Lies Within You
In everyone lies the capacity for greatness. Know your strength, the things you are good at and work at improving them. Your mind is a powerful tool. When used wisely you can achieve things that at first might have seemed impossible. Positive thinking can make a difference in everyone’s life. Learn to master the art of positive thinking.
The Things you say Make a Difference
The things you do and say, can make a difference in someone else’s life. It is important to encourage, rather than to always criticize. Try to see the good in those around you, and not always seek to find what’s wrong. Some people fight silent battles, and sometimes all they need, is a kind word or a helping hand. You can make a difference!
Life may give you a million reasons to give up. But the determination to fulfill your true purpose is the fuel which will help you to defeat the odds. You will come across people who will frustrate your vision and make you wonder if it’s worth it. Always rememer it is about you and not them. The key to get to where you want to be is to start that journey. With hard work and determination you will reach your destination.
There are no winners in wars
There is no real winner in a war. Perhaps egos are satisfied, but there are no winners. There can never be a replacement for the lives lost unnecessarily on either side. There will be no solution for the families torn apart forever. How can this be a just cause when the goal is the destruction of another man’s country? How can it be fair when those calling to start a war is rarely, if ever at all, on the battlefield fighting and risking their own lives? It is easy to give the command when your own life is in no danger. We can only hope common sense will prevail and this senseless war will end. No more children should have to die unnecessarily. While we support Ukraine we must also condemn the discrimination experienced by people of color as they too try to flee for their lives. Everyone’s life matters. We are in this together. We pray that this war ends soon.
I believe there are more good people in the world than there are bad and If we focus on the positives in life we will see this. We can see the good in others if we choose to. However If we choose to focus on the negatives we will forever be talking about the enemy and see each other as adversaries rather then our brother’s keeper. There is nothing the devil likes more than an atmosheres of hate and division. Choose a side to be on.
You are enough
Have you ever felt that you are not beautiful enough, not sophisticated enough or not educated enough? Chase those thoughts away, because the reality is you are perfect just the way you are, and you can be anything you set your mind to be. Don’t seek perfection, it does not exist. Each day work on yourself to be better than the day before and happier than you thought you could ever be.
If you are content with where you are in life, chances are you won't strive for anything better. Always be prepared to grow and to live your best life possible. Don't be afraid to shine.
