Inspirational Sunday – Focus


At times, we have faced perplexity, discouragement, and desperation.  We’ve had experiences leaving us thinking life is unfair.  During these times, we felt helpless, and the challenges appeared much larger when they were not.  More than likely, those challenges were only smoke screens.

Take a different approach to looking at things. Life is what you make it.  You 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 and change your perspective.

Think of the results you desire.  Do not focus on yourself as a victim. Focus on becoming victorious.  If your challenges are physical, financial, or mental, consider yourself  “facing a challenge” instead of challenged by what you are facing.”  By this way, your perspective place 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.

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.
