Phenomenally You! 

You are an astounding individual. Did you know that? Day in and day out,  you get up to face the world each and every day. With courage and with fortitude you press on to be the best person you could possibly be. No matter how hard things get, you continue to hang on despite not knowing the outcome. Your willpower is irrepressible and your determination is unmatched. You live in the present and you are confident of the future. You are able to go on because you fill your mind with positive nourishing thoughts. YOU are wonderful because you are YOU. You are simply a phenomenally YOU! 

Until next time…shine on! 

Try To See The Good 

It is so easy to focus on the negative things is it not? Someone does something to offend us and we are all up in arms about it. We recycle over and over the things others have done to offends us without realizing that those very same people are imperfect like us. We can easily point out the wrongs others have done to us, but what about ourselves? We are not as perfect as we like to think we are and whether or not we want to admit it, we have done things to hurt and / or offend others. I know I have, even though it was not intentional. 

Harboring resentment, anger or a grudge against others can be damaging in a number of ways. Not only that, it can affect your happiness. The best thing you can do for yourself is to forgive that person, let go of the hurt, pain or anger and move on. Holding on to it will not do you any bit of good. Especially since you yourself have done things to hurt or offend others whether it was done intentionally (which I find to be very sad) or unintentionally. 

I can admit that seeing the good in others who are deceitful or hateful can be a challenge at times, but I am here to tell you it can be done. I truly believe that no one is COMPLETELY bad. There is some good in everybody. Granted, in some people you have to look a little harder to find it or see it, but it is there. When you have that type of mentality, it makes life and dealing with others so much easier. Remember, your happiness depends largely on you and how you view things in life so choose to be happy.

Shine on you amazing individual! The world needs more positive people like you!!

Until next time… 

The Insecurity Is Real! 

I have another relatable post. Are you ready? I hope you are because it is about to get REAL on this blog post! 

I find it incredibly sad when people who are unsure of themselves try to find fault with what you are doing. If you show them what they are doing wrong, they get offended. If you tell them or try to show them the right way of doing things, they get offended or upset. Not only that, because of their insecurity they do everything they can to try and make you look bad or try to make you out to be the “bad guy” or “bad girl.” Pure, unadulterated foolishness! 

I find it almost laughable the depths some people will go to hide their insecurities. They will lie, blow things out of proportion and will even try to play the victim. LMBO! I honestly never worry about people like that because nine times out of ten, they are stuck in life and do not have the capacity or the capabilities to move on to better things in life. Sometimes I think that is why they do the things they do because they know you or I could easily move on to something better whereas they themselves cannot. 

I see no need to try and tear down someone who may be doing something better than I can. More power to them. You cannot get upset if someone does something better than you. Yet, this is something I often have to go through. Why get upset with me because I am thorough and good at what I do? The insecurity I tell you is real! I will go a little further and say it is an epidemic! Now I will admit, I have a huge positive spirit, but I am also a force to be reckoned with. I can get along with just about anyone, but there are limits. I will not stand for or take anyone’s disrespect because they are insecure about themselves and what they do. 

If any of you are also currently going through this as well, keep your head up and stay strong. You have so many good things coming to you. Insecure people who feel the need to undermine or tear down others will always be at a stand still in life until they change. As you continue to move on to bigger and better things, do not lose any sleep or pay those people any mind. Put them in their proper place and keep it moving. What is meant for you will be meant for you. Never lose that positive spirit. Trust me, it will take you so much further in life. 

Until next time, flash that amazing smile of yours. It just might make someone’s day! 

Nope! 

As an up and coming writer, I love using my blog as a platform to discuss matters of importance. I am connecting with more readers and bloggers because of it. Discussing topics without any substance would be a waste of my time…

Tonight, I am going to talk briefly about one of my pet peeves, negativity. I absolutely, positively do not care to be around negative people. Negative people will drain you or sap the happiness out of you, that is if you let them. There is no sense in being negative, yet some feel content on spreading their negativity onto others. It is true that who you surround yourself with will have an impact on who you are as a person so be careful. 

I for one will not sit, eat or carry on an extended conversation with a negative or deceitful person. I am not able to do that. I will however give a brief greeting (Hello how are you?) and keep it moving. You catch more flies with sugar than you do with water. I have had my share of negative people who tried to get close to me, but I never give them a chance to do so. I know how to keep negative people at a distance. 

I must admit, I do feel sorry for negative people because they do not realize that the biggest hindrance to their own happiness is themselves. Sure, they may get a little kick out of hurting people or trying to hurt other people, but in the end, they are really hurting themselves. It is easy to want to retaliate or seek revenge, but do not stoop to their level by doing such a thing. You just keep being the positive person that you are because in the end, it will work itself out. It always does. 

Until next time…
