No such thing as the same Story

“If you judge other people, you  have no time to love them.” – Mother Teresa Every person has a story– and it’s not yours.  Similar situations aren’t exact situations.  You don’t know the road another person has traveled… do you really believe that puts you in a position to judge?  Focus on improving your ownContinue reading “No such thing as the same Story”

One Life

“Releasing the past and embracing forgiveness, I am refreshed and renewed.” As you grow older, you realize that the most beautiful people are the kindest people, the people with the biggest hearts… the people who are happy because they’ve found comfort in their hardships and learned unmistakable lessons in their trials. You realize that theContinue reading “One Life”

I Believe…

I believe that forgiveness isn’t supposed to be earned. It’s supposed to be given. Forgiveness isn’t for the perpetrator, but for the hurt… and it’s not always easy, but it’s usually worth it. I believe that how far you’ll go in life is often determined by who you’re with. There are people who will dragContinue reading “I Believe…”

Promise Yourself

“Promise Yourself To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only theContinue reading “Promise Yourself”

It’s a choice

I’m no angel. I have a past littered with what a lot of people would consider mistakes, but that I consider lessons. I am who I am because of each time I fell… and each time I picked myself up. If you learn from your past, there are no “mistakes”– only lessons. “The greater theContinue reading “It’s a choice”

Choices

“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.” It’s not our job to change the people God puts into our lives- it’s our job to love them. If God wants to change them, He will do it. You can’t change someone’s past; you NEED to accept them for everythingContinue reading “Choices”

Sticks and Stones

Never let your experiences limit you. Don’t let them define you, either. The more you’ve been through, the more opportunity you’re given to help others. A littered past can make for a clean future if you get rid of the trash. Wanting to change and changing are two entirely different concepts. And actions? They doContinue reading “Sticks and Stones”

A Work in Progress

People aren’t products of their pasts. Who you were a year ago or what you did yesterday doesn’t define the person you are this very second. “It’s not who you think you are that holds you back. It’s who you think you’re not.” If you keep your eyes open, you’ll see that those obstacles canContinue reading “A Work in Progress”

I’ve Learned.

I’ve learned that I can be a Christian and hold a temporary grudge. Just because I love mankind doesn’t mean that I have to like everyone at any given moment. I’ve learned that iron sharpens iron and you do become the company you choose to keep… so choose wisely. I’ve learned that it’s more admirableContinue reading “I’ve Learned.”
