"Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be. Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar, and you'll live as you've never lived before."
-Erich Fromm-

Random Kindness...

*Be kinder than necessary. For everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.*
Its funny how there is always 1 person who ALWAYS feels the need to "talk" about you, but NEVER takes the initiative to confront situation that he/she seems to think is worth gossiping about. Knowing full well they have NO IDEA who you are as a person, but continue to make their own presumptions and receiving false witness (if that's even the word to use) from other folk.

Dealing with difficult people forces you to practice self-discipline.

Let not kindness .&. truth forsake thee; bind them about thy neck; write them upon the tablet of thy heart: So shalt thou find favor .&. good understanding in the sight of God and man.

Proverbs 3:3-4

So I say to my acquaintances who have made false presumptions .&. continue to demean my character...

I turn your negative thoughts and discouraging comments about me into a positive action and from it, I yield a good result. Thank you so much and, may God continue to bless you and keep you safe.
Act the way you want others to act toward you, no matter how they are acting. Take back your power and live by example!
There's a tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite my own "situations"...

MY Journey to EXCELLENCE!!

Dreams are God’s ways of pointing out I have the possibility of achieving excellence in MY life!

Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for the Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 (NRSV)

Mistakes made in our pasts can seem crippling. Sometimes we wonder if a past event has ruined our future. But it need not be that way. If our mistakes soften our hearts and better prepare us to seek wisdom in the future, then even those mistakes are redeemed; they become a part of our sacred journey and God's continuing story.

If you're tired of living a lackluster life, you can step out and start developing yourself.

7 steps to achieve excellence
(As Quoted from: ezinearticles.com)

1.- Unbury those dreams. Every great achievement started with a dream, and there is one lurking deep down in your heart right now.

2.- Discover your unique skills and talents. You'll probably find them in whatever you do in your free time. Close friends can also help you identify what you are good at.

3.- Figure out how you can develop your gifts and talents even further. Don't worry if you have a long way to go, just take a step at a time. But start.

4.- Be prepared to work hard. It won't fall into your lap. Changes require effort. Determine to be diligent. You'll love to learn about something you love doing.

5.- Find at least one good mentor. It can be in the form of a book, a course or a personal mentor. The Internet is a great source nowadays.

6.- Set long term and intermediate goals you want to reach. A goal is a dream with a deadline. Write them down.

7.- Stick close to God. That will keep you going when the going gets tough.

“…but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” Daniel 11:32(KJV)

Excellence starts from within. Nothing in this world happens without the permission of God.

When you trust God's promises, success and equanimity will come to you...

"...Fear not, for I have redeemed you; have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD, your God..." ▪Isaiah 43:1-3▪
