Inspirational Sunday – Focus


There are times we may find ourselves perplexed, discouraged, and in despair.  We’ve all have experiences when life does not seem fair.  During those times, you might feel helpless and lack control.  But, in actuality, some things we face might actually present themselves as smoke screens.  In other words, they appear much larger when they’re not. It’s all how we choose to see things.

Life is really what you make.  You are really in control of how you choose to see things. The old adage, “a glass is half full or half empty” is really true.  If you don’t like what you see, choose to see things differently.  Adjust your focus, change your perspective.  If your past has dealt you a blow, see yourself as a overcomer.

Instead of focusing on yourself as a victim, try focusing on becoming victorious.  If you are experiencing a challenge, whether physically, financially, or mentally, consider yourself as “facing a challenge” instead of challenged by challenge.”

Stay focused! Stay Inspired! Choose to look at things differently!

It’s your choice.

Together, submerged in the crowd, their educational goals were fulfilled because of dedication, determination, and hard work.

Sharing their common bonds, shoulder-to-shoulder and unified, and in harmony,  they look ambitiously towards their future.

But, separately, each one will walk away on a different path to his or her journey to success.

Happy Mother’s Day!


Mothers are special,

they’re one of a kind.

Of all the species,

they stand above the rest.

Moms are exceptional,

you are the best!

Your unconditional love

is like inspiration from above.

Fathers are very special too,

but moms are exceptional

because they have much to do.

Whether you’re a mom whose given birth,

or a mom because you’ve mothered others,

you are a special breed,

and attention to you is in much need.

Random Thoughts


`Expectations are promises of hope which are redirected from the sureties of disappointments.

`Enjoy the moment. Capture the original snapshots of your life because you can only produce a copy.

`Happiness is abstract, paint your own picture, and do not allow others to determine if it’s a masterpiece or not.

`Facing the consequences of your truths and untruths lie deep within. You are either your best friend or your worse enemy.

`Love is not what we seek, it is the acceptance of love. Love is always waiting for you to receive it. You must believe you deserve it.

`It’s possible to have a fictional perspective of life.  It’s also possible to perceive the facts of life as fictional.
