Is it Strength or Is it Weakness 

Many times we are faced with situations in our lives where we have to make detrimental decisions; decisions that will alter the path we are on. We may be aware of their importance while going through them. Other times, we realize their importance later, possibly after the fact. Maybe we do it on purpose; not making things a big deal. And maybe we are aware and we feel every emotion that comes our way. Regardless Continue reading

We blame ourselves too much

How many times you caught yourself saying: “Damn! I wish I said that or didn’t say that. Or I wish I did that or didn’t do that.” … “I wish I figured this out sooner, I wish I walked away earlier, I wish I knew what I know now ages ago, I wish I could go back and change things, If only I was that person back then … Etc.” but you didn’t know, and you weren’t that person and no you can’t go back. That’s just the way it is.  Continue reading

Don’t hate your job

How many people can’t stand their jobs or place of work or the people they work with/for. How many of us wish we just stick it to our boss. How many wish they can hand in their letter of resignation tomorrow, better yet; yesterday if we could. Who wants out? Who wants to feel free from this stress that is weighing you down and making you miserable all the time to the point that either you get sick or take it out on the people you love? Who is living everyday without meaning or purpose, feeling lost and stuck? Do you feel useless sometimes or bored from doing the same thing day in – day out? Do you fit in any of those descriptions. Do you feel any of those emotions just mentioned.  Don’t worry, if you said yes, you are not the only one. But I am here to tell you, don’t hate your job. Let me tell you why. Continue reading

Helpless

The feeling of being helpless, unable to do anything for the ones you love, is probably one of the most things I hate in this life. Even though I know that everything is in God’s hands at the end of the day, I still can’t help but feel like I must do something to help. That’s just me, I was born to do that. Continue reading

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

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

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
