Authenticity

Authenticity meaning – 1. the quality of being authentic; genuineness. We are surrounded by people, social media and TV trying to make us believe that we need to be someone other than ourselves. We start thinking that we are not good enough. I heard the statement “be yourself because everyone else is taken”. We believe what others say through their words, actions and looks. Some people are in their own internal hell because they lack the confidence to...

2018

  January is the first month of a new year, and that signifies new beginnings. It’s a time when we get a “do over”. Everything that wasn’t accomplished in the prior year we get a chance to start over. Many of us start by getting rid of bad food(cookies, cake, candy, soda, sweet tea, pizza, etc.), we go shopping for healthy foods, we buy new journals, start new vision broads, set-up new budgets, end toxic relationships, and the list goes on and on depending on...

Comfort Zone

What makes you comfortable? The majority of people want to be comfortable, anything that tax us in the sphere of self-improvement, new ideas, family, job, finances, church and voluntary task, we shy away from it.

Gratitude

  We have life, health, husband, wife, children, home, car, job, money, etc. If you take a look around there are people who don’t have what you have or haven’t accomplished as much. Today, many people take things for granted and find it hard to be grateful. There will always be things that you are not grateful for because –life happens.
