When you are feeling down and out and your heart is filled with despair, know that there is one you can talk to and he always care. In the midst of your heartache whisper a little prayer. God is always listening. He will heal your wounds and take away your cares.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it. (A. Carnegie)
Do you know anyone like this. Some people will do things just for the attention and the praise.
Even though you might feel fed up about things not going right in your life, you still have to hang in there and keep fighting until you get it right!
This year I plan to focus a lot more on my writing and promoting my books. I might even ask you guys to give me an honest review on my current work in progress- ALONE GIRL- This is a story of a girl and her struggles as she seeks acceptance of a father who rejects her and tries to find her place in the world.
Look out for more post on this topic. By the way here is a glimpse of my cover idea. Tell me what you think of it.
One Sign That he may be an Abuser “ISOLATION”
A majority of women get into relationships having no idea that their intended partners are abusers. This happens because you cannot tell that a man is an abuser simply by looking at him. He often appears to be your regular nice guy. He puts on the charm. He wines and dine you and make you feel important. He says the right words that you want to hear.
However charming he may appear at first be careful and take nothing for granted. Keep your eyes open for any warning signs that he may not be all that he wants you to believe that he is because he could be an abuser.
One of the first signs to watch for is ‘Isolation’. One of the first things he may try to do is isolate you from your friends and relatives. If he wants you to cut ties with your friends don’t for one moment believe that he is thinking of your best interest. If he tries to keep you away from your family or try to make you choose between your family and him be warned; he is up to no good. He could be setting the stage for abuse!
When he gets you in a position where you are isolated from your family and friends it gives him power over you because when the abuse starts you will find yourself alone with no one to come to your aid and that is exactly what he wants. Do not ignore that first clue!

Invite Your Audience Carefully
Not everyone is healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives.
There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of, or at least
minimize your time with, draining, negative, incompatible,
Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention.
Which ones lift and which ones lean?
Which ones encourage and which ones discourage?
Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill?
When you leave certain people do you feel better or feel worse?
Which ones always have drama or don’t really understand, know or appreciate you?
The more you seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you…the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the front row and who should be moved to the balcony of Your Life.
“If you cannot change the people around you, change the people you are around.”
Remember that the people we hang with will have an impact on both our lives and our income. And so we must be careful to choose the people we hang out with, as well as the information with which we feed our minds.
We should not share our dreams with negative people, Nor feed our dreams with negative thoughts.
It’s your choice and your life….. It’s up to you who and what you let in it……
