Below is something we need today…
Empathy is a feeling …
It’s different from sympathy …
Different from tolerance…
Even compassion…
Empathy is the ability to share someone else’s feelings…
The ability to walk in someone else’s shoes…
Perhaps learn to be of service …
Helping others becomes a lesson teaching empathy…

This is in response to the post earlier today that was not meant to go to the level it did…I followed with some data about 10 worst Pandemics in History after that other post…I hope some of you go read it…Several have been in our lifetime…all the major diseases weren’t even mentioned…but we are still here…some do die this is true…maybe many….as they do in natural disasters or war…and we should do our best to help people…but we did not take these extreme measures in the past…I just question the move…that is all…do we destroy life for so many…not die physically but in other ways…is it the needs of the many outweigh the few?… Who gets to decide that?… This should be a choice…I know several seniors who do not want to be held up in their space…We are forcing them because we are telling them that this is best for them…their life is measured in months or weeks and they do not want to lose a minute sitting and waiting…do you blame them? What if it was you or a family member at the end of life…would you want your family with you? Would you want to miss a moment?… This will not be the last pandemic in our lifetime…it won’t be…life is about constant evolution…virus will mutate again…do we do this every time? Unfortunately…this is life…it is a crap shoot…and I really understand that to my core…I have been at that door more than one time in my life…I just don’t know…I do not have the answers …I am posing the question…again we can not control nature…to try to do so is doomed to failure…we can’t control weather…earth upheaval… nor the evolution of virus or bacteria….that doesn’t mean we don’t help…it means we should not fool ourselves… I am not sure our world can survive continued extreme measures like this.

Sometimes I feel like life pushes me off…lol
We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down…

In life…friends…co-workers… or other important people in your life are really part of your team…
Be careful who your friends are…it is extremely important…
Who’s on your team?…
Are they negative…focusing on failures…losses… the lack in life…they are holding you down…
Your inner circle should be people who are positive… support… believe and have faith in you…
Who believe in your purpose…
Have a team who pushes you to your dream…
Are you a good team member to someone else?

A Confident Woman:
I am strong….I’ve been through a lot in my life and I am still standing
I have self-worth….It took a lot of soul searching to finally see for myself
I am beautiful…I don’t need anyone to tell me I already know my glow
I am not perfect…Nobody’s perfect but I’ve seen my good and bad sides
I am just myself…I will never be alone I will always be there for me

The truth can do years of work in seconds by Bryant McGill

If your situation seems impossible at least look it straight in the eye because having painful truth is better than a pleasant lie. Pleasant lies just perpetuate your problems. People tend to think they want success, progress, happiness, and peace more than anything, but really deep-down, people want the truth. People have given up everything and even died for the truth. But the truth only comes if you are willing to face some really unpleasant things about yourself. You have to dig deep inside of yourself and have a look at your old resentments, judgments, insecurities, and fears. All of these ugly, hidden things are how we lie to ourselves. We lie about how tomorrow will be no different, and how we can’t, and how they don’t like us, how we aren’t worthy and how we’re finished and it’s impossible. And then there is the worst lie of all — that we are unlovable. This is how a person who is paralyzed by lies thinks.

The truth can set you free, but when it comes, it’s more like a wrecking-ball than a holy beam of illumination. Truth can be terrifying. If you’re brave enough to follow the truth it will shatter you and your illusions at the same time. If you are not taking proper care of yourself, you need to be broken, because you are probably set in your ways like concrete. Don’t live a lie anymore. Come clean. Let it out. The truth can do years of work in seconds. Once you let the truth loose it is like setting a fire that you can’t stop. Let the fires of truth burn away your false life and your excuses, fears, blaming, doubts and illusions of insignificance. Accept that through truth — tomorrow will most certainly be different! Accept that you can and will do what you must do, to take good care of yourself. Accept that there are people who will like you for who you really are. Accept that you are not finished, and a new and better life is just beginning. All of this is possible through accepting the truth that you are worthy of good things, and you are a deserving and beautiful person.

Some people never get this…no matter what age you are or position in life…
Treat people the way you want to be treated…
Talk to people the way you want to be talked to…
Respect is earned… not given

As we go into New Year’s Eve and welcome a new decade …
We reflect on our past …
Do you have regrets?
Have you made promises to anyone… including yourself…
Did you keep it?…
By saying I’ll do it tomorrow you are saying…
I can put up with this one more day….
I can give another excuse …
It doesn’t feel good… does it?
Make a resolution to take action…
Be A Now Person…

From the negative things or positive things in your life…
What have you learned?
Did you take the lessons and build a new road or a wall?
Did you remember to be grateful for the positive or good in your life?
Did you say thank you?
To those things or people who bless your life…
Be A Grateful Person…

Remember we are only promised this moment…
Use it so that when you reflect again next year…God willing…
You can say I have no regrets…
I have lived…learned…and loved to the fullest…
I Am Thankful…
I Am Blessed….
I hope you have a Wonderful New Year and a Fabulous 2020…
xoxo❤️

Love this…hit the nail on the head….means more to me now than ever…

There was a time in life when I cared more for being liked…
not making waves…
and what other people thought of me than I did liking myself…
and caring about what I thought of me…
I did not know how to stand up for myself…
I did not realize people don’t respect people who do not respect themselves…
I did not understand people who are insecure about themselves are the ones who want to control and change others…
Looking back I can honestly say not once did I feel good about myself for doing what other people thought was best for me when I knew deep in my heart that what they wanted for me was not close to what I wanted for myself….
I must be honest and say it is NOT always easy to do what you know is right and best for you…
Often getting your own back means going against what everyone else believes…
But I will guarantee staying true to you is worth whatever sacrifice is necessary…
I know from experience the only way for you to find true happiness, peace and self-respect is by being true to you…
And…that means supporting yourself even when no one else will…(Romancing Your Soul)

As we run through our day…finishing work and Holiday planning…remember

“One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity….
Connect with those around you today….
Say, “I love you”… “I’m sorry”… “I appreciate you”… “I’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling…
Send random texts… write a cute note… embrace your truth and share it…cause a smile today for someone else…and give plenty of hugs.”
(Steve Maraboli )


A Daily Thought – Consider
Always show kindness and love to others…
Your words might be filling the empty places in someone’s heart…
(Mandy Hale)

Something to remember….Look in the mirror

Dear Me
You have been doubted…hated…talked about…
Made fun of …hurt… and lied to…
Broken…
And at your wits end…
With that being said …
I commend you for the fact that you are still standing…
Your courage speaks volumes…
I know the struggle …
And the pain you’ve endured…
You are more than a conqueror…
Nothing can keep you down….
And nothing can steal your joy…
Don’t give up….
Continue to stand tall…
And love yourself first….
You are appreciated…

What is your Legacy?
Do you live it the way you want to be remembered?

I want the world to be better because I was here…
I want my life…my work…my family…to mean something…
And if you are not making someone’s life better…then you are wasting your time…
(Will Smith)

“Ask and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened to unto you”
(Matthew 7:7)
How do you read the meaning in this phrase?
I see one message as…if you want to move forward or want something in life …
It is your responsibility to look for it…ask for it…that is how you receive it…

Just let go...
Let go of how
You thought your life should be…
And embrace the life that is
trying to work its way into
Your consciousness….


Sharing from a friend’s page…Thank you Beth for this|
We are all a little broke, but nothing God can’t handle. For Gods grace is his gift and his mercy is his compassion for us.

Gracefully Broken!
I was in Dollar Tree last night, and there was a lady and two kids behind me in the LONG line. One was a big kid, and the other one was a toddler. The bigger one had a pack of glow sticks, and the toddler was screaming for them. The Mom opened the pack and gave him one which stopped his tears. He walked around with it smiling; but then the bigger boy took it, and the toddler started screaming again. Just as the Mom was about to fuss, the older child bent the glow stick and handed it back to the toddler. As we walked outside at the same time, the toddler noticed that the stick was now glowing; and his brother said, “I had to break it so that you could get the full effect from it.”
I almost ran, because l could hear God saying to me, “I had to break you to show you why I created you. You had to go through it so you could fulfill your purpose.”
That precious child was happy just swinging that “unbroken” glow stick around in the air, because he didn’t understand what it was created to do – which was “glow”.
There are some people who will be content just “being,” but some of us that God has chosen… we have to be “broken.”
We have to get sick.
We have to lose a job.
We go through a divorce.
We have to bury our spouse, parents, best friend, or our child…
In those moments of desperation, God is breaking us. But… when the breaking is done, then we will be able to see the reason for which we were created. So when you see us glowing, just know that we have been broken but healed by His Grace and Mercy!!! 💛💜

I watched this video that Monica Robins put out as she prepares for her surgery…. I urge you to take 12 min and watch it through…It will help everyone have some understanding of what someone faces with a major medical issue…
Boy, I remember…I remember hearing those life-altering words that put me on my health journey…I remember the fear…the not wanting to deal with it…putting on the outside happy face for others.. working hard to keep it together on the outside…yes “I got this”….but not feeling that way on the inside…focusing on others, not myself…If there is ever a time to take time for yourself…whatever that looks like to make you feel at peace…that is the time…that self-care helps your survival…It feels like you have no choice but to be strong…that is not true…having a positive attitude helps keep you strong…You do have a choice…I know Monica is a strong …amazing woman…and she is going into this journey making the choice to be strong…She has “got this” ..YOU “GOT THIS” MY FRIEND and we are all here to help lift you up….the fact that she put all of this out there for people to hear tells me so…
Sending her prayers…heart mojo…and ((HUGS)) to get her through this difficult time…
