Trust the Process

We live in a world that has a process for just about everything. A process can eliminate the guesswork and provide us with a straightforward task.  It can determine success or failure, and we all want successful outcomes. In December 2019, I was adamant about pursuing my Professional Human Resources Certification (PHR). That was not the first time I set this goal. This time I invested the money and time to make it happen. I discovered that if you are serious about...

Our Days of COVID-19

During this time of uncertainty, we can use the prayers and support from family, friends, and our faith community. This season of the Covid-19 pandemic has baffled our medical scientist. We are being inundated with information regarding what systems, safety precautions, and treatments we should follow. Our lives have been disrupted in ways that we never imagined. Unfortunately, many of us have lost family and friends to this pandemic or we are watching them suffer...

The Meeting Place

They accomplished their goals by getting up early to run or walk before work. I was excited watching them however, I was not ready to embrace walking, so I thought.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said it best “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character”. It is being echoed...

Born For A Purpose

In the bible, the phrase “but I have raised you for this very purpose…” can be used when referring to all people. We were all born for a purpose whether our lives lead to righteousness or evil it is for a purpose. I asked the question, what was different about George Floyd that is making such an impact in our nation and the world? There were other lives taken in a similar manner that we witnessed in the news and social media. He was not an activist,...

Persistence

Several weeks ago, the word persistence was resonating in my spirit. It could have been due to me contemplating what I want to accomplish this year. I set 6 goals for myself and I didn’t want to repeat the lack of persistence that I exhibited in some areas of the 2018 goals. The goals for this year are attainable, however, they will be challenging because of my perception of me. Do you know we can be harder on ourselves than anyone else? One of my goals is to eat...
