Week-Ending Inspiration

We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.

Change the Way you Think!!!

Our world is what we make of it. Changing our way of thinking can change the world around us. You are the only person who can decide whether or not you will have a great day or if your day will suck. You are the one who can allow others to make you smile or if they steal your joy. You are the Master of your Fate and you can decide what path you want to go. I remember being told as a young girl that I would end up pregnant at 16, not finish high school and amount to nothing. I defeat the odds. I turned those negative sayings into positive and became the opposite of what others thought I would be. I told myself early in life that I will not allow anyone to dictate my future. I know that it can be hard especially if you are in a negative environment or around people who do not encourage you, but sometimes you have to encourage yourself and speak life into your situations. Remember, there is life and death in the tongue. Be encouraged and know that with God all things are possible!

Weekly Inspiration

No More Smalling Up Of Me  Jean Wilson


No more meekly saying 'yes'
When my heart is screaming 'no'
No more taming of my feelings
So my power won't show
No more hiding my exuberance
From disapproving eyes
No more watering down myself
So my spirit won't rise

No more 'smalling up' of me
Pretending I am not here
No more running from the music
And the spotlight's glare
No more living in this prison
Barricaded by my fears
No more turning and retreating
In the face of new frontiers

Even as I am speaking
I am taking shape and form
Harnessing my powers
Like a gathering storm
There's no obstacle so bold
As to dare stand in my way
I am taking back my life
And I am doing it today.
