The Crowd

When you follow the crowd, you die by the crowd.  Is it important to have connection with others?  I believe so.  We need connection.  We need interaction with others.  We need community.  But, we also need to be cautious.  We need to be aware.  We need to know who we are as an individual.  Otherwise, …

You Choose

You choose the direction your life is going to go.  You choose who you will be today.  You choose how you respond.  How you react.  You choose how you will treat others.  You choose what thoughts you will allow to take residence within your mind.  You choose what words you speak.  You choose how hard …

Listen. Learn. Love. Live

Listen.  Learn.  Love.  Live.  This life is meant to be lived.  Fully.  Passionately.  Extremely.  We only have one opportunity, one shot at this life.  In order to live a full life, one must embrace the need to listen.  Learning to listen, knowing how to listen, is the key that unlocks the door to a full, …

Self-Control

Self-control.  The mastery over one’s spirit.  The mastery over one’s thoughts, feelings, and emotions.  Self-control demonstrates strength.  Maturity.  Humility.  Power.  Self-control delays impulse.  Delays instant gratification.  Delays natural instinct.  Self-control is learned.  It must be practiced.  It takes patience.  Endurance.  Discipline.  Focus.  Willingness.  Few understand the value of self-control.  Few understand the importance of self-control.  …

Keep Smiling

Keep smiling.  Just.  Keep.  Smiling.  There are no perfect days.  No day goes exactly as planned.  Things happen.  Stuff happens.  Life happens.  This is fact.  Truth.  Reality.  People are crazy.  Rude.  Inconsiderate.  Inconsistent.  Angry.  Lazy.  Complacent.  Comfortable.  You and I can’t change people.  Not one person.  We can’t change certain things, certain situations.  Again, fact.  …

Step Out

Step out.  Step out into the darkness.  Step out into the unknown.  Step out into the possibilities.  Step out into the beauty.  Step out of the comfort.  Step out of the complacency.  Step out of the laziness.  Step out of the crowd.  Step out of your pride.  Step out of your arrogance.  Step out of …

The Natural Mind

I want to live in a routine.  I naturally want to live a life of comfort.  Knowing always what is next.  My mind wants routine.  My mind fights to remain comfortable.  The natural mind will do everything in its power to protect you, protect itself.  To preserve.  The natural mind will lead you astray.  The …

What I Need

What do I need, not, what do I want.  What do others need, not, what do they want.  This is all the difference.  You live for needs, not wants.  You live a life of delayed-gratification.  You put the needs of others ahead of your own, sometimes, not all the time.  You learn the art and …

The Kids!

There are so many hurting kids in this world.  So many kids who are crying out for help.  Crying out for love.  Crying out for a listening ear.  There are so many kids in this world who are Fatherless, orphaned, hopeless, desperate, and lost.  There are so many kids who are just simply, confused.  Trying …
