Inspirational Sunday – Focus


There are times we are facing perplexity, discouragement, and desperation.  We’ve had experiences which leave us thinking life seeming unfair.  During those times, we might have felt helpless.  The challenges we faced appeared much larger when they were not.  More than likely, those challenges were only smoke screens.   It’s how we choose to see things.

Try taking a different approach to looking at things. Life is really what you make it.  You really are in control of how you choose to see things. The old adage, “a glass is half full or half empty” is true.  If you don’t like what you see, choose to see things differently.  Adjust your focus, change your perspective.  For example, if your past has dealt you a blow, see yourself as a overcomer instead of focusing on the consequences, think of the results you desire.

Do not focus 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 what you are facing.” This perspective places you in control.

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

It’s your choice.

Three Line Tales – Week 68

Three Line Tales, Week 68

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.

(Response to the 3Line Tales)

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.
