The “COMPARISONS” Lesson Part 2

Previously, I emphasized on comparing ourselves to others around us and how we allow our surroundings to affect us.  Now I want to focus on another type of comparisons we encounter in our lives.  We all do it. Sometimes even without realizing. It may be beneficial at times but most times, it doesn’t help us one bit. Continue reading

Conversation with My Heart

How many times will I keep going through this? How much more can my heart take? Why do I always end up in the same spot every time? Do I continuously make wrong choices and am I that bad in my judgements? It’s at times like these when I think I know nothing. I think I do, but obviously I don’t. Continue reading

My One Year Anniversary!!!

Has it really been a year? I can’t believe it … a year ago I started this blog.  It’s amazing what 2012 brought my way. I  am so thankful and grateful that I have come this far.  This is a special month for me – for so many reasons.  And now, I have one more reason to celebrate … Continue reading

New Beginning

With my Birthday approaching, this is the time I normally sit back and reflect on my life. I face myself with the reality of what is, not what I would like it to be.  A reality check so to speak.  My life runs in front of my eyes like a movie and I am watching myself; laugh, cry, succeed, fail, satisfied, deprived, happy, sad, content, needy, surrounded by many and alone. Continue reading

Challenges

“We choose to go…not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that goal will serve to measure and organize the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win”

~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy ~

I am inspired by this quotation.  It is a good reminder for me every once in a while.

Those who know me, know very well that I live my life based on challenges.  As a matter of fact, Challenge should be my middle name.  My life Continue reading

Goodbye #2

I start by saying, I am writing this article as I am deeply sad and mourning the loss of a family member.

Previously, I have written on this subject and I touched on more than one type of goodbye.  Today I dedicate this post to my cousin George – who just passed away two days ago.  May he rest in peace and may he be in a place that is deserving for him. Continue reading

Fear

One of the most destructive emotions in our lives is the feeling of Fear. It is the most common one next to Love.  Both of those emotions even go hand in hand.

What is fear exactly? Why do we fear? Who experiences fear the most? What do we do to overcome the feeling of fear in our lives???

The feeling of fear itself is very versatile.  Every person feels fear differently and the reason or cause of fear varies as well. Generally speaking though, fear is an emotion that paralyzes our ability to think positively and find peace in our lives. When you fear something, you are unsure Continue reading

Goodbye

How do you find the words to say Goodbye? How do you walk away knowing that with every step you take, you are one step further away from the one you love? How does your heart not break in two? How do you do it?

Goodbyes are one of the most difficult things in our lives.  There are those goodbyes that we choose and those we do not.  There are those that we are prepared for and those we are not. There are those goodbyes that you get over eventually and those that you cannot. Continue reading

Success

How do we measure success? Do we recognize all our successes? Why is success so important to every human being? Do we know how to capture momentum?

I can confidently say I know the meaning of success because I have lived it and continue to live it.  It is very important to recognize your own success and be proud of it no matter how small it may seem.  Even if no one else around you recognizes your success and even if you do not get the response you are hoping for. Feel good about yourself nonetheless, because ‘YOU DID IT!!’ Continue reading
