Encouraging you to be the best version of you!


Live In the Moment: 

This means living in the present, forgetting about the past and not worrying about the future. Easier said than done, because we tend to spend our present time thinking about what went wrong in the past and scared about what might happen in the future. We should instead savor the present moment and gain as much as we can from what’s going on in the “now”. For example, if you are hanging out with your friends for dinner and or happy hour, then live in that moment, enjoy their presence, don’t worry about the next minute but be in the moment as it presents itself. Enjoy their stories, their laughter, celebrate their victories and comfort them when sad. Spend time enjoying their company because the next minute is promised to none of us. So, the next time you sense your thoughts drifting in the future or to the past and you are becoming overwhelmed and worrying about the future or regretting the past, just begin to focus on the now. Let go of the past and place your future in the hands of God, enjoy and have fun in the present

Laugh Every Minute: 

Literally we should laugh every minute, we should feel that sense of joy and happiness that will make us want to laugh, smile, or even chuckle. Laugh Out Loud!!! Have you ever laughed so hard that you are crying or so close to peeing on yourself? Oh My Gosh, those are the best laughing sessions because you feel soooooo great and your mind and body feel like you have been though a mild exercise and you feel great!!! We always hear the saying “laughter is good for the soul” because it is and there are many benefits in laughing. These benefits include:

➡️   Boost the immune system

➡️   Relax muscles

➡️   Aid circulation

➡️   Protect against heart disease

I remember when I was going through a tough time in my life and laughing was one of the things that got me through the this time. I would go on YouTube and watch Steve Harvey Talk show the “Ask Steve” segment and I would be driving home from work listening and laughing my head off. The questions were funny but Steve reactions and answers to the questions were 3 times as funny and hilarious. I would be at the stop-light holding my stomach from all the laughing. I would also watch Kevin Hart movies and that would do it too.  I would be laughing and just having a great time. So, laughing every minute helps.

Love Like No Other

When we hear the word love, we think of strong passionate feelings and I will stress the word “strong” because unlike the word “like” many would say that love is a strong word. And indeed, it is a strong word. In the Bible, God doesn’t say that he “like” us. We would feel almost offended if he did say I like you. God, You only “like” me? Oh no God LOVES us; He loves us unconditionally, this is called “Agape” love. God doesn’t love us because we are doing something for Him, He loves us because we are his children. He loves us because we are created in his image.  What if we have that same type of love for others? What if we could love unconditionally, loving no matter what?  Well,God wants us to love like He does but I think as humans, we love with conditions, and it becomes hard to love unconditionally. However, I am encouraging you to Love hard!! Love to the best of your ability. Give love, be love, embrace love and love as much as you can. One of the fruits of the spirit found in Galatians 5:23 is love and so God wants us to Love. He wants our character to be one of love.  Also, in 1 Corinthians 13:13 it says and now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. The greatest is LOVE!!!   So, Love to the best of your ability!! Love, love, love !!We all need love; I need love; you need love; let us all love!
