Every season in life brings new adventures that can be dreadful or exciting, all depending on how you look at it.
While your life might seem like an obstacle to you, it can be the answer to someone else’s prayers.
It’s all about perspective.
Sometimes you need to change the way you look at your job, the way you look at your loved ones, the way you look at your friends or even the way you look at your adversaries.
But perhaps most importantly, you need to change the way you look at yourself.
Although you may be comfortable (or not) with the current season you are in
You should know that there is something better waiting for you on the other side of perception.
shattering my old perceptions
To look at blue skies every morning and let the sun’s heavenly glow drip down my skin.
To be thankful for my past, both the good and the bad and the breath I’m using to write this poem.
To be present. I’m really not in this moment, but thinking about tomorrow, next week, next year…next life. I want to learn how to live in this moment.
To write….my greatest talent from God, overshadowed by my consent.
Choosing to remember
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. –
Thomas A. Edison
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”
Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul
“Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it can. And just when you think it can’t get any better, it can.”
― Nicholas Sparks, At First Sight
“Death ends a life, not a relationship.”
― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie
“Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” -Socrates
“One day, you’re 17 and you’re planning for someday. And then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesterday. And this is your life.” –
If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present. –
You can NEVER be better than what you think of yourself.
Tell your mind a different story, so your life can reenact it.

Shine at what you were created to to be, you will frustrate yourself being who you’re not.
“Someone was hurt before you, wronged before you, hungry before you, frightened before you, beaten before you, humiliated before you, raped before you… yet, someone survived… You can do anything you choose to do.”
There’s something about this year, that’s completely turned my world upside down. I use to be comfortable with being comfortable. But now I crave to be uncomfortable, I crave to learn more, grow more and commit more. To I started a 7-day plan to stay productive following the guidelines from the Everyday Power Blog (
http://everydaypowerblog.com). So anytime I feel wronged, tired, fatigued, worried, embarrassed, and the likes, I will recite the quote above, and keep it moving.
Your beliefs become your thoughts
Your thoughts become your words
Your words become your actions
Your actions become your habits
Your habits become your values
Your values become your destiny.
I was afraid to jump off that cliff, but I did it anyways….
Fear does not exist, it is an optical illusion that you create in your mind, that hinders you from accomplishing your goals.
Recognize that the fear is present because you are out of your comfort zone….breaking free from your comfort zone is the only way you can grow and gain wisdom.
When you recognize that fear is present, but that you don’t care because your goals have become your greatest concern,
Then you will be successful.
Spend an hour defining what success means to you
Before you spend years chasing it.
