There is no good you do that will not return to you or your loved ones in some way. Oftentimes, the people you have helped will not be the ones you can ever say thank you to. Instead, someone you have done nothing for will be the vessel that returns with your blessing. Never stop doing good, even if those you are there for aren’t there for you.
This year has been one of blessings and challenges; successes and failures. Everyone can relate to that. Many didn’t make it this far and those of us who lost loved ones know that they will be missed and we thank God for those special relationships. In 2018, let’s continue the forward progression toward our dreams, goals and aspirations WITH love, thanksgiving and appreciation never seeing the glass as “half empty”, but instead “half full”. Let’s fill our minds with positive thoughts so that we attract positive things in our lives. Have a HAPPY, HEALTHY, and PEACEFUL 2018! Much love to you.
A wise person doesn’t just digest every bit of information he is fed. While listening, he is instinctively examining the source of that information (the person who is sharing it). The way he handles the knowledge–whether to believe, disbelieve, remain neutral or other–depends upon whether the source is a natural gossiper, back-biter, snake, or someone who is honorable and trustworthy. When it comes to information, always examine your source: It makes all the difference in the world.
Love is the key. A heart devoid of genuine love is a life that’s unfulfilled.
True humanity is: I don’t have to know you to be kind to you.
Don’t allow anything negative today to get the best of you. Your ability to remain calm in the midst of a trying situation does not depict weakness, but strength.
I’ve seen some people with great talent go nowhere in life because their biggest setback and obstacle to forward progression and guaranteed success was having a deceitful mind-set and a conniving personality. It’s more than a tragedy when exceptionally talented people are really their own worst enemy.
Deception does not herald Favor. True favor, which comes from God, propels you into greatness and takes you places you otherwise could not have travelled. Achieving goals by means of deceit is only temporary as the plummet is inevitable. You may hide from other human beings, but you cannot hide from God, so Honesty is still the best policy. Having a good moral compass is what heralds in life-long blessings and favor that will astound you.
After having been dealt with wrongly or unfairly, it is so tempting within our human nature to respond likewise to our offender. However, taking the high road is a much honorable position as it demonstrates not only to yourself, but also to the other person that you will not descend to their level. Be cool, be calm, be assured that Nothing has ever happened that God did not see.
When you don’t complain about your own circumstances and difficulties although you may have every right to, it takes an inner strength most remarkable and admirable. What’s ultimately created is a barrier-breaking fortitude on the inside that will get you through any situation.
