Check Engine Light

Sometimes we get so used to the "Check Engine" light of our lives being on, that when it eventually does go off; we assume something's is wrong.

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Running

When you're running full tilt around the corner of your possibilities is not the time to pause and look back at the mob of impossibilities chasing you.

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Shoes

Nice shoes, too bad they have taken you nowhere of consequence.

Adversity

I have never been scared of adversity. In fact, when it stops happening, I will know that I am headed in the wrong direction.

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Everyday

Every day you wake up is a gift. YOU can choose how you are going to live, what you are going to do and accept the eventualities and consequences that may come from that. What is absolutely unacceptable is to sit back and DO nothing, or watch others make their choice and then allow yourself to be carried along. THAT is a waste of a GOD life.

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Monday, December 10, 2012

Leading

If you're gonna LEAD, GO AHEAD AND LEAD. Stop looking around, wondering if someone else is going to do it. Go without whatever that thing is, that is stirring you to move.

Standing

Just because they are standing next to you, doesn't mean they are WITH you!

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Between The Lines

If we all drove slow, colored between the lines and followed all the rules, the world would be flat. It takes rule breakers to stretch boundaries and not let the imagination stay confined within the realm of those who have none.

Friday, November 30, 2012

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

The best person

There is one  person you need to always be cool with and whose friendship you need most except for God. That one person that you must rely on wholeheartedly to move you from danger and into safety at a moments notice. That person is YOU!

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Turn Around

Walking away from your problem doesn't solve it. It abandons the problem to fester. Turn and face yourself.

Monday, November 26, 2012

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Being Lost

Sometimes being lost and completely off track is part of your journey to self discovery.

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Ballin'

Doesn't matter how much you're ballin'. If you don't respect God, you'll soon find yourself fallin'.

Friday, November 2, 2012

Friday, October 26, 2012

Life

DON'T SPEND SO MUCH OF YOUR TIME WATCHING OTHER PEOPLES LIVES SO CLOSELY THAT YOU FORGET TO GO OUT AND GET ONE.

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Monday, October 22, 2012

People

Many of the people standing around in your life aren't active participants but spectators. You need to have the maturity and wisdom to distinguish between them.

Monday, October 15, 2012

Stumble

Don't let your inability to get out of your own way, be the primary reason you keep stumbling.

Friday, October 12, 2012

Growth

Sometimes it takes the worst kind of conditions to make you learn how to be the best you.

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Good People

It's time for GOOD PEOPLE to start happening to BAD THINGS!

Self Worth

If your self-worth is tied into how much money you have, then you'll never be much of, or satisfied with anything.

Thursday, October 4, 2012

Thoughts

When you give air to your private thoughts, they tend to move like the wind.

Monday, October 1, 2012

Realization

It's okay to accept that someone else' best is just never going to be your good enough.

Thursday, September 27, 2012

UP

If someone's rising and the distance is growing larger, you're probably not moving.

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Misfortune

The people who tend to laugh at your misfortune, will not be inclined to applaud your triumph.

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Monday, September 24, 2012

Pride

Don't ever let pride have you in such a vice grip that you can't shout for help.

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

9/11

I take solace in knowing on THIS day, that "Osama Bin Laden is not better off now than he was four years ago" (excerpt from John Kerry speech at DNC).

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Smoke and Mirrors

Four years ago in their best thinking, they gathered together and tried to convince us that an old man and an half wit woman from Alaska were the right people to vote for. Fast forward four years and they are now trying to make us believe that they had nothing to do with the economic woes we are in after their choice of eight years, imploded the economy by creating rules and regulations that allowed big business to exploit loopholes, started and continued wars that have cost billions. Somehow they either think America has a short memory, or that Americans are stupid.

Thursday, August 30, 2012

YES

Your YES means absolutely nothing if you never say NO.

My feet are Republicans

I think my feet are Republicans, they always want me to pay money I don't have so that they can look great, while the rest of my wardrobe falls apart.

Monday, August 27, 2012

Dilemma

The need for candor and honesty will always rub up against the sensitivities of ego and feelings.

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Never Mind

Never mind the smell or the look of the place. Why are you there in the first place?

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Friends

The people that remember you fell, because they picked you up, but don't keep reminding you about it.

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Mixed Messages

Entering a man's life in a negligee and then complaining about his refusal to let you sleep is a mixed message.

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Bandwagon

Not everybody can sit in the driver's seat. However, if you have a seat on the bus, you're going to get there at the same time too.

Friday, August 10, 2012

Success

People who stand in awe at your success, will be left breathless when you educate them them about your struggle.

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Evil

If you do not develop that natural  instinct to run from evil, you will inevitably end up walking with it.

Life

Some of the biggest decisions in life are when you are faced with the choice not to act and then realize you were wrong OR to act and find out that you were.

Monday, August 6, 2012

Searching

Stop searching for things in other people that you should really find in yourself. Your identity, fulfillment and acceptance is a SOUL issue which requires a completely different type of relationship.

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Back Pack

Don't try to get on your flight to success carrying your backpack of failure. It's always overweight and over-sized and should travel in the belly of the plane, out of sight.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Trash

Sometimes we spend too much time sorting through the garbage of our lives, trying to figuring out what should go into the recycling bin or regular trash. Trash is trash, get rid of it!

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Highway Rules

Some highway rules for life: Never follow another person's life and actions so closely that you don't give yourself room to come to a full and complete stop.

Friday, July 27, 2012

God's Voice

God's voice may not sound like that of those that are closest to you. In fact the only way to know His voice is to get to know Him for yourself. For a relationship with no investment isn't a relationship. It's nothing!

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Mirage

When you are thirsty for help, delirious from your struggle to get across the desert of your circumstances, some people will loom ahead like an oasis, plush, rich and filled with the promise of nourishment and yet they are simply a mirage.

Monday, July 23, 2012

Advantage

Be careful with people that take advantage of you on little things. They tend to do exactly the same thing over big things.

Sunday, July 22, 2012

Bitterness

When your mouth is already bitter from an experience, it takes something with extra sugar to overcome the taste. Unfortunately someone or something with a lot of extra sugar is either artificial or unnatural.

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Eating Curds

I really have trouble with people who just sit there, on their tuffets, eating curds and whey.

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Love

Don't be SO in love with yourself that you make it practically IMPOSSIBLE for anyone else to love you.

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Substance

A cocky person who lacks substance is like a windmill in the doldrums. Ultimately very noticeable but of utterly no use.

Start with the end

Get to the point first and you will have the undivided attention of a man. Otherwise, your meandering tale will cause him to reach conclusions way in advance of your intentions.

Monday, July 16, 2012

Virtue

A man will take exactly what it is a woman is willing to give up, EVEN her virtue.

Righteousness

Practice righteous living in the face of unrighteous circumstances. It's simply a spiritual Litmus test that measures the condition of your heart.

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Destination

When a woman makes herself a destination and NOT a lay-by, the geography in a man's head tends to change. She becomes a point on the relationship map that he's willing to drive through obstacles to get to.

Friday, July 13, 2012

English

Sometimes I think the English language got it wrong. Marriage should have been called forgiveness. Anger should have been called headache. Hatred should have been called fatigue. Haters should have been stalkers. Friends should have been relatives and EX (anything) should have been jerk.

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Careful

Be careful that those standing closest to you in a crisis intend to help you, and not push you in front in their bid to escape.

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Good enough

I wish someone had taught me the meaning of 'good enough' a long time ago. That way I would have stopped trying to over-achieve due to the burning feeling of never being satisfied. I'm glad I finally found 'good enough' which allows me to relish even my smallest triumphs.

Look Hard

If you look hard and long enough at anyone, you will soon find exactly what you're looking for, be it good or bad.

New Walk

There was a time in my life when I was very concerned about what people thought of me. I wanted to be popular, to be liked and for people to call my name. It would bother me if they didn't like me. I was addicted to the applause, the noise. Those days are long gone and now I know the peace that come from running, walking and hanging with God.

Monday, July 2, 2012

Journey

The journey to mental and spiritual freedom is seldom paved and lined with flowers. It is off the beaten path and will require some hardy tools and equipment to make your own path.

Friday, June 29, 2012

Addiction

People who are addicted to their mess, will usually respond to genuine help with anger and resistance.

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Integrity

The most useful word in the dictionary of integrity and character is the word "NO".

Monday, June 25, 2012

Bravery

True bravery is marked in the eyes of a person willing to face their Goliath no matter how big or small, with or without a catapult.

Friday, June 22, 2012

Mistakes

Your mistakes are problem only if you wear them as medals instead of putting them in a chest as souvenirs.

Faith

The greatest statement in your life about faith is when you realize that the majority of your friends have grown up and become Christians.

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Expectations

Some times peoples expectations of you are higher than your own simply because you are the best example of what they can never hope to achieve.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Desire

Temper your desires because when incorrectly focused, they can ignite fires that will burn your life down. Inversely they can be the roaring flames that sound the beacon of your survival.

Friday, June 15, 2012

Objection

Never underestimate the power of a good objection. For a refusal -when everyone else is agreeing- can hang any jury. 

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Your funeral

Too often we worry about disappointing the wrong people, our bosses, our workmates, our friends or our church, when we should be most worried about disappointing ourselves, our family and our God. Your friends will attend your funeral, your God will ensure it, your family will arrange it.

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Applause

The cheers of the crowd are always welcome. However the most important voice you must hear through the throng of voices, loud,clear and strong, is YOUR OWN.

Monday, June 11, 2012

Struggle & Triumph

It's the people who understand the exact nature of your failures and struggle, that will most appreciate the magnitude of your triumphs no matter how small they are.

Friday, June 1, 2012

Your Body

Your body is like any other machine. What you put in it, how you use it, how often you clean and maintain it, determines how long and optimally it will perform well for you. How you treat your body while you are young, ultimately determines what it will do for you when you are older.

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Your Feet

How you look after you shoes, tells me a whole lot about the fact that you worry about your appearance and how you appear to other people. How you look after your feet? Well, that tells me that you care about you and look out for the very things that will carry you through life.

Conviction

When your convictions and morals change based on events, people or circumstances, they were never solid in the first place. Make your election sure.

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Opinion

Peoples opinion of you seldom includes your own. Walk your talk.

Leverage

Not every hand that reaches back to pull you up has your best interests at heart. Sometimes the pull, is a calculated move so you can push them up again. It's only when the labor is shared that the playing field is even.

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Prejudice

I am learning that not all prejudices are equal. What levels the playing ground are negative and misinformed reactions based on feelings and not facts.

Underestimate

Most people underestimate the power of silence.

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Fools

Fools tend to lean on insults as a crutch with which to continue their ungainly plod to stupidity. A wise man learns to walk on his word with his feet firmly planted in his race to integrity.

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Wisdom

He who often lets his wife wear the pants in the relationship, will get the opportunity to take his pants off the most often.

Liars

Examples: A short sighted person who tries to convince you vehemently about something they are seeing far off. A crocodile that insists it will carry you across the river. A that cobra invites you to  brush its teeth. A woman with fake hair, eyelashes, eyebrows and teeth who wants a natural man. A man with a potbelly who claims to be a bodybuilder.

Monday, May 21, 2012

Failure

If you try and fail, it's so much better than not trying. Because not trying means you've automatically failed.

Friday, May 18, 2012

Compromise

Never let another person's insecurities obligate you into uncomfortable compromise.

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Hyenas

The thing about hyenas, is that they are brave in numbers but seldom make a stand by themselves unless they know that their prey is absolutely helpless. They also have the strongest jaws of any mammal. Reminds me of some people, utterly worthless alone but boy do their jaws have the power to corrupt.

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Mask

Anger, dislike and hatred are often the masks that people will wear to disguise the jealousy, envy and longing they have for YOU, what you have or are trying to be.

Monday, May 14, 2012

Argument

A poignant argument made by an astute fool who is surrounded by hapless admirers, can be very dangerous.

Friday, May 11, 2012

Respect

Earning the respect of someone who doesn't respect themselves is like getting into bed with a scorpion. The likelihood they will do what is in their nature and sting you, is very high.

Letting go

Never hold on to something too tightly that wants to be let go and inversely, never let go of something that you should have held onto tightly.

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Healthy Choices


We will never know how healthy we are until we are faced with unhealthy choices and yet we must not dabble in unhealthy practices to test our healthy choices. Build your wall not only to protect YOU from THEM, but THEM from YOU!

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

In front

Usually its the person in front of you you gotta watch out for because they are striving for exactly the same thing you want and are willing to do whatever they can to get there before you.

Be nice

Always be nice to the people coming behind you. They are the ones who are bound to try and catch you when life knocks you backwards.

Air

Ask someone whose been locked up for years just how free the air we take for granted feels. Or sit with someone whose lungs are laboring to inhale each breath and you will know to treasure each breath you HAVE BEEN GIVEN.

Prison

The worst thing about being in a physical prison is you rarely get to see the sun. The worst thing about being in a spiritual prison is, you rarely get to see the Son.

Monday, May 7, 2012

Arrogance

You will usually find an arrogant heart rooted on the confluence of bad decisions and unpleasant consequences. It's long branches shading the nesting colony of snide remarks and negative intentions.

Sunday, May 6, 2012

In your trench

When you are stuck in a trench with bullets whizzing overhead, bombs falling close by,  it's hard to take advice that implores you to wait on an unseen Calvary. The battle for your very life cannot be fought alone, dig in.

Friday, May 4, 2012

Be careful

Always be careful which friends you choose to ask for advice when you are down. Sometimes its like being bitten by a Puff Adder and then going to a Rattlesnake for anti-venom. Either way, you are in trouble.

Thursday, May 3, 2012

Lost

Sometimes the person you're so keen on following and emulating is also lost. They just do a better job of acting like their not.

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Monday, April 30, 2012

Defense

You might be better equipped, bigger and stronger. Your desire to win may even be pretty big. You just better hope that your opponents desire not to lose to you, is not as big as your desire to beat him. For in the end a staunch defense can inevitably lead to victory.

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Shepherding

A shepherd is evaluated by the condition and well being of his flock. No one cares how good he looks or if his sheep-call is loud and melodic. The physical and mental condition of his flock determines the quality of their wool. What's the use of having a lot of torn up, sad and sick sheep? Tend the few you have and produce good wool.

Friday, April 27, 2012

Open Mind

It's hard to keep an open mind around people who will not close their mouths.

Taking for granted

If you take for granted the things that someone does for you that they would never do for anyone else. Soon enough, they will start doing those very things they wouldn't do for anyone else, for someone else.

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Scars

Too many of us want to heal from our bleeding stitched wounds without sporting any scars. We tend to be worried about how we will look rather than the fact that we are healed.  Scars are important reminders of the experiences we never want to have again.

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Winning

When someone possesses the desire to win, it's commendable. When someone possesses the desire to win at all costs, it's suspicious.

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Thorns

The reason roses have thorns is that people tend not to just appreciate their beauty at a distance. We are prone to pluck, cut, and disfigure in our bid to enjoy their beauty. The deterrent of bodily harm rarely stops a person bent on possession. 

Monday, April 23, 2012

Forgive

When your injured heart calloused with the marks of sustained injury screams in anger is the best time to forgive.  It starts with lowering the bottle of poison from your lips and relieving yourself of the pressure to kill your soul. You have no choice, because usually most of the injuries that require forgiveness are self inflicted.

Friday, April 20, 2012

Help

Your cries for help will seldom go answered if you have your problem on a pedestal and every-time someone shows up to assist, you espouse its virtues. Stop asking for help with an attitude.

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Comparing

When comparing yourself to others, be sure that you are on the same metric system. For what may seem like centimeters to you may be inches for someone else. The few pounds they may have amassed may translate to kilograms. Never judge the feet of success, using your meter rule.

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Patience

Some people are like aggressive drivers in heavy traffic. They cut people off, flip their fingers, roll down their windows and shout obscenities in the mad dash to their destination. Only to arrive and find that in order for the party to start; they have to wait on the very people they have cursed, flipped and cut off to get there.

Monday, April 16, 2012

Faith

Some will call dogged resilience in the face of insurmountable odds, resilience.  Others look upon failure with a face etched in perseverance and muscles knotted in exertion only to merit another try. I simply call it having the faith to treat things that aren't as if they are.

Friday, April 13, 2012

Entourage

There are some people whose life's greatest moments will be to tell of how they were with you when you did what you did. Their singular life purpose is to be part of something they could never do themselves. Modern days they call them posse' or an entourage. Once upon a time, they were called disciples.

Thursday, April 12, 2012

Unmasked

I long came to the conclusion that sometimes, unbridled courage, stubbornness and unfettered arrogance mask the insecurities of a person with significant trauma. What initially appears to be an offensive onslaught is really a defensive posture to inhibit a repetition of past injury.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Character


The foundation of your character should not tied into the verbal merits and views of people who treat your feelings as mules for their ego and foot-stools as they pursue self importance. Leave them to their ruin -fold your garments neatly- as you pack your suitcase in haste on your journey of self realization.

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Leading

Your struggle, that very thing which you believe you are enduring in private, is actually a public spectacle. The exertion of your efforts, the sweat of your perseverance is all being observed with keen interest. People follow you without your knowledge and admire you without your consent. Your testimony is never an orphan and the victory is in being able to survive to tell it.

Monday, April 9, 2012

The Past

Stop living in past glory! Yes you were this, and yes you were that. We all know what you did, who you did it with and how you did it. We remember what you were about and just how much people said about you and the fact that you reveled in it. Can't deny that you were THAT and we won't start to now. However, the simple question is, "WHO ARE YOU NOW?"

Thursday, April 5, 2012

Commitment

I will never abandon you. Even when the road is rough and things get tough I will be by your side. We will weather all the obstacles in our path. Your people, will be my people, your enemies, my enemies. I will stand if only to cover your fallen body. Should the enemy overtake us and cause us to fall; I will protect you with my life, sword in hand engaged in mortal combat.  I will turn my weakness into strength and push, while you pull. I will scale any precipice with you, ropes hitched and tethered together, free climbing the mountain of destiny. Should you fall, I will go with you if only to remember in that fleeting moment that we can fly.

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Friendship

Friendship does not yield to circumstance nor does it vacillate when challenged. It is committed and assured even if non-responsive. It requires very few words and knows no distance. Times only effect is to strengthen it. Keep your friends!

Friday, March 30, 2012

Humble

When you look at new life, the miracle of birth, a newborn child, you realize that the biggest thing you could possibly do, is nothing compared to the smallest thing that God can do. Sorry atheists, but some of this stuff is so complex that no amount of randomness could do it.

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Amnesia

Sometimes we spend our whole lives looking for God only to find Him and spend our limited time with Him trying to run back to the things that we were running from in the first place.

Friday, March 23, 2012

Opinions

There are seldom fewer things more dangerous than an idiot -with a following- who has a strong opinion. It creates the best environment for misguided vigilance.

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Stand

To be rooted in a place so no one mistakes your posture for sitting, stooping or kneeling. To be upright, stoic, resolute and still. It is not walking, running, sauntering or strolling. No forward or backward motion yet not resolved to remain that way forever. STAND for in that moment, being rooted may be your only hope from the attack. Yes STAND for something, or you will FALL for anything.

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Realization

That moment when it dawns on you that those closest to you are too insecure about their own lives that your BIG dreams are too big for them to support you given their SMALL fears.

Prophecy

Turning my 'mess" into a message. My 'test' into a testimony. My 'dirt' into determination. My 'sin' into sanctification. My 'foolishness" into favor. My  'pain' into purpose. My ' vanquish' into victory. My 'history' into HIS story.

Monday, March 19, 2012

Love

Love never shoves a calculator in your face to prove to you that your answer is wrong. Instead, she guides you with pencil and paper to ensure that your calculation will always be right.

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Teach

The greatest teachers are humble enough to learn more about the very subject they are great at teaching and teach it humbly enough that those they teach, become their teachers.

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Offense

If you try to live your life not offending anyone, you will surely end up offending someone. A life of avoidance usually results in you offending the most important person, YOURSELF.

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Perfection

If you are one of those who has never sinned, made some huge mistake, or messed up someone else' life, good for you. If you have never cheated, never hurt anyone, or done something that you deeply regret and had to ask for forgiveness, I applaud you. It's quite possible that Jesus didn't come for you, but for a wretch like me.

Monday, February 27, 2012

Humble

If you humble yourself enough, God may just allow your unlicensed self to co-pilot your life plane for a safe landing. Otherwise, keep the foolish pride, take the controls and go ahead and crash land.

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Nature

The number one reason men are like dogs is that occasionally, our nature is so strong, it causes us to chew and urinate on things of great value under the guise that we can't help it.

Friday, February 24, 2012

Forgiveness

Forgiveness is the one sure way of releasing your heart from the vice grip of emotional and mental anguish. By forgiving, you take the collar of captivity off your neck and place it back where it belongs.

Thursday, February 23, 2012

Commitment

The foundation of your soul requires a spiritual connection that can only be manifested if you are totally honest with, and develop a loving relationship with yourself.

Friday, February 17, 2012

Fortitude

Refusing to let someone influence you into an action that goes against your morals or convictions regardless of their position is true fortitude. Being able to stand alone when the crowd has been hypnotized and beguiled by folly, is true character.

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Swag

Swag is not about style. It's not about clothes, money or cars. It's got nothing to do with being able to rap or sing.  It negates the crew you hang with, our how popular you are. Swag is an inherent state of being. It's inert, a bosom thing. It goes to your core, your nature, your natural existence. It's born not bred. You can't acquire it from a thing or from someone else. It starts where it started and ends where it ends. JESUS has swag!

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Change

I have cast my pearls before swine for so long, I think I just heard myself  'oink'. No more allowing my treasures to be trod underfoot by the weight of feral hooves. 

Thursday, February 9, 2012

Clueless

When I'm almost collapsing under the stress of carrying my load, brow furrowed and sweaty. When my fingers are almost bloody from the weight digging into my skin and my arms are straining with effort. Then is not the time for you to ask me a whole bunch of questions. It's your cue to help!

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Payback

If in your zeal and quest to gain success, you have left a trail of destruction and hurt in your wake, you better have eyes in the back of your head.

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

Loud voice of evil

It simply comes down to your conviction to live and walk in truth being greater than another person's commitment to lie, manipulate and be deceitful. Far too many of us are enamored by the big, loud voice of evil and constantly failing to hear the soft, calm voice of good.

Monday, February 6, 2012

Saturday, February 4, 2012

HOPE!

Hope is the fuel that can fan that tiny flame of effort into the roaring BLAZE of achievement!

Friday, February 3, 2012

Inspiration!

Stop sitting around wondering if your roots will hit water, you're not a tree. Get up and search for your inspiration!

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Legacy

Every legacy requires that you take at least ONE step further than your ancestors. So why are you still stuck in the ghetto of your mental, physical and spiritual walls? Stop being addicted to the food-stamps of self doubt, and the welfare checks of mediocrity. Start living your legacy today!

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Recognition

If you keep being asked to do things you know are illegal, immoral, unethical, or degrading yet keep doing them. Your grumbling and whining -about the directions and commands- hold little water. At some point the issue becomes about you and your lack of self worth, rather than the duplicity of the other person.

Monday, January 30, 2012

Promotion

Sometimes in order for YOU to get the promotion you have fought so hard for, God will demote you to get the attention HE SO craves.

Sunday, January 29, 2012

Fight for your life

The second you stop fighting, that very second you signal your defeat. In that moment you have to make the critical calculation as to whether in defeat, your enemy will have enough mercy to spare your life or hold you in captivity. By my estimate, living to fight another day is immaterial if the enemy is merciless. Fight for your life!

Safety

We will never know how healthy we are until we are faced with unhealthy choices and yet we must not dabble in unhealthy practices to test our healthy choices. Build your wall not only to protect YOU from THEM, but THEM from YOU!

No Weapon

YOUR plan, yes, the very one that you conjured up while in your most thoughtful moment. The one that took you years to formulate,organize and implement. That very one that has me as the central character, taken advantage of, maligned, disgraced, injured and hurt. That very one, WON'T PROSPER!

Mess

Sometimes we stand at the closed door of our past mess turning the key, just waiting to hear the sound of the latch catching. Not hearing it, we test the door by trying to open it and allow the mess right back in. Latch the door and walk away.

Winning

Winning is not always about hoisting the cup or standing on the podium. Sometimes, even the defeated, weary from battle, bruised and bloodied, can feel triumphant because the winner looks worse than they do.

Liars

Hang around with liars for long enough and they actually start to get offended and defensive when you keep telling the truth. Soon enough they start treating the truth like it's a lie.

Waste

To live your life, dreamless and in a trance living for someone else is a waste. Then only to reach your end and realize that they never fulfilled their full potential because you never did either.

Respect Yourself

A clear sign that you're in the wrong place is when another person's personal interests keep bumping against your self respect with the full expectation that YOU will be the one to make the compromise.

Stop Running

Stop running around chasing illusions and sit still long enough to deal with your reality. You might just dream up a situation that will become your purpose for your life's new destination.

Re-Evaluate

If you yell charge and take off running, but your crew not once moving from their spot starts asking questions and seeking clarification; it's time to re-evaluate your crew.

Confirmation

Not looking for your confirmation or acknowledgement, in fact I would prefer your disdain and disparagement, simply because it has been the fuel I use as my encouragement. Back up now, please don't join the crowd now singing about my development because if my memory serves me correct, you used to be a big part of the negative sentiment.

Promises

I have learned that the biggest and most important promises, the very ones that matter the most and do the most to build you up? The ones that change your very inside and stoke your fire? Those promises are the life changing ones and the very ones YOU MUST KEEP.

Get Out of The Way

How the heck are you supposed to see in front of you, if you constantly keep standing in your own way? I mean WHO knows how best to block YOU but YOU? Time to pump fake yourself and GET PAST YOUR OWN objections. Your whole life's winning basket, comes down to your drive through THIS lane.

Reflection

Just because my feet are pointing in your direction, does not mean that my conviction NOT to step in your direction has changed. Once in a while I have to face your way, to appreciate how far I have come. Please do not misconstrue my posture as a reflection of welcome or acceptance. It is simply an acknowledgment that you WERE a part of what made me become, WHO I am.

Change Direction

Sometimes changing direction is the only way to get to your final destination. The obstructions may seem like an inconvenience, but they could be the difference between life and death.

Helping

The hardest part about helping someone is realizing when they shouldn't get your help. If helping you find yourself has anything to do with me losing parts of me, you're going to have to find YOU by yourself.

Failure

To die without having lived like dying was an option, is failure.

Appreciation

Smart people really should appreciate dumb people because without them, there would be nobody to oooh and aaah at the absolutely dumb things they do. Many of these so called smart things require a dumb person to appreciate them. Just like dumb people should appreciate the fact that smart people do the dumb things under the guise that being smart, means that dumb people won't notice.

Obsession

People who are obsessed with stuff and outward appearance, neglect to realize that NEW shoes have never been any place of consequence. It's the feet in them that tell the tale of the journey

Ignorance

If you allow someone with an inferior intellect to spew their superior ignorance in your personal space, you usually end up inhaling their ignorance germ. This can then develop into a foolishness infection that most definitely ends up affecting your thinking organs.

Integrity

When everyone around you has none, integrity always comes with a high price. The orphanage of good character if filled with the unadopted children of high moral standards.

Faith Test

A true test of faith is when you yell, "charge" and go cruising down the hill at full gallop to engage the enemy not once looking over your shoulder to see if your posse is behind you. If you feel you have to look, time to change friends.

Winning

It's not the person who prepares the hardest that wins the race. In fact working hard is by no means a guarantee of success. It's the unmitigated desire to be on the winners podium that drives countless losses into obscurity. For how else can you explain training all your life, to win a championship once? It's the burning fire of winning, that is remembered forever.

Forgiveness

The stitches of forgiveness will always leave the scar of injury. Only a person who has been placed in a position to forgive the unforgivable, understands true forgiveness.

Fight for your life

It's not possession of a weapon that makes a person dangerous. Many people have weapons. It's that innate ability to use it with deadly effectiveness that distinguishes harmful, from harmless. Ignite your fire!
