Life Teaches Us

Life teaches us that we must take charge of the things happen around us. Once we grow and mature, we must no longer take the easy way out of blaming others for our conditions, circumstances, failures and every other negative situation that is apparent in our lives. While our surroundings may play a part or be a contributing factor, we are ultimately responsible for our own life outcomes.

Life teaches us to speak up for what we desire and how we want our lives to take shape. We must not waste time seeking to change people around us because that is far beyond our reach and out of our control. We must embrace the power within us to change things around us so that we are living out a life that is true to who we are. As that life begins to take shape, we will draw those people and things that will support and enhance our desired life.

Life teaches us that while change is good, it is often one of the most difficult aspects of life to maneuver. As you look at your life and all of its baggage, good and bad; take purposeful steps to live in sync with your purpose. But remember that not everyone around you is where you are. You must exercise patience and compassion as you move throughout each day. Start to pattern your life according to your life goals and remember that your behavior, character, walk, and talk will be the deciding factor of whether or not the people around you will change.

Life teaches us that the people around us are not perfect and neither are we. We have a responsibility to live a life worthy of our life’s purpose. This includes being a conduit of love in all areas of our lives; with the absence of criticism and judgement. As we live out our lives, we will see the results we are looking for when we extend ourselves beyond who we have been.

Life teaches us that we certainly deserve to live the life that we desire but it also teaches us to be compassionate and understanding as we walk in the light through love. As you seek to embrace all that life has taught you, remember, the lessons are ongoing and when you feel that you have arrived, you are just beginning. Allow life to continue to teach you to live a life full of love for others, for that is what life is all about.

The Beauty in Every New Day

The beauty in every new day is that the opportunity for you to live intentionally is still present. Regardless of every struggle, setback, obstacle, or pain, you have been given the light of day to seek to see clearly how you should live out your life on purpose.

Before the start of each day, commit to spending time in quiet meditation to focus your mind on the most important tasks of the day.  Seek to prioritize so that you will eliminate the possibility of stress and frustration. Bring order to the chaos that often erupts when you fail to plan.

Walk throughout your day with a spirit of gratitude not underestimating the blessing that you have been given to live, to move, and to breathe in this day. Set out to be excellent in every word that you speak, every step that you take, and every action that you participate in. Be an example of how to embrace the beauty in every new day!

Domestic Violence – Join In the Fight

Domestic Violence is still prevalent in our society today but unfortunately, we have yet to heal all of the wounds and scars that both women and men suffer as a result. There are many efforts and many people who support such efforts but we still see the presence and the effects that these incidents have on families all across the world. What should we do when we hear of the many individuals who are abused on a daily basis? Continue to stand up and fight for those who may have gone silent and have lost the will to fight.
The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence reports that at an average rate, nearly 20 individuals in the span of a minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. With over 10 million women and men suffering from domestic abuse  during one year, there is a need for people to step up and speak out. 
What can you do?
  • Become a volunteer at a local shelter
  • Contact a local support group or organization and find out how you can get involved
  • Make monetary donations
  • Donate needed items to shelters
  • Speak up again domestic violence in your community
  • Encourage your Human Resources department to provide resources to employees
  • If you witness abuse Call 911
  • Support legislation that enforces consequences against abusers
  • Encourage family, friends, and co-workers who may be in abusive situations to see help or contact a local shelter
Never think that there is nothing that you can do. You can be the voice for someone close to you or even someone who you have never met or will never meet in your lifetime. Your voice and your actions can make all the difference for someone who is suffering. Take a stand today. Speak up for those who have gone silent.
