Addition by Subtraction

Spend quality time with your family AND with yourself.

Sometimes we are on edge because we haven’t made time to enjoy a personal habit, read a magazine or book, or just chill – alone.

Just the same, we want to spend more time with our kids, our spouses, our family.

We have to do both!

We have to dedicate time to our families and to ourselves. Even if that means eliminating other obligations. It’s math – Addition by Subtraction.

Are you human?

Every human has what it takes to battle through adversity. However, adversity always brings us to a moment of choice.

A moment when we choose to be a victim or a victor.

A moment when we choose to press forward or to remain still.

A moment when we choose to win or we choose to be defeated.

We ALL have to face adversity – MANY TIMES! Some of us will choose to “fight” and as a result, we become tougher. Some of us will choose to be pitiful, throw a pity party, feel sorry for ourselves, quit, and drown!

Some of us choose to drown. Drown in our own sorrow. Drown in our own tears. Drown in the same adversity that thousands of other humans chose to swim out of.

If you’re going through something, stop feeling sorry for yourself. You are human, and trust me – you can get through this. But only if you choose to!

The Laws of Physics and Your Beginning

The laws of physics make it impossible to have a brand new beginning. But, it is more than possible to create a brand new ending.

Opportunity comes to those who create it. Patience is a virtue, but don’t spend your entire career, your entire parenthood, your entire life – waiting for magic to happen. There is no magic.

There is only physics. Gravity, space, atoms, science.

Start where you are and use what you already have. Begin anew and create opportunity for you and your family.

God Bless.

Its Not Them.

If you have the same problem with everyone you meet – it’s not them.

You are the problem AND THE SOLUTION!

Be man enough or woman enough to be reflective. Reflection is hard, but so is finding peace and purpose for your life.

We talk about world peace and peace among races, but we neglect to find peace within ourselves. It’s difficult to help heal others when we are wounded – internally.

You First. You First. You First!

God Bless.

I Am Grateful… But Not Satisfied.

God woke me up.

I have food.

I have water.

I have clothes.

I have shelter.

I AM GRATEFUL…

But not satisfied.

We are here to do more than just survive. We should count our blessings but still know that God rewards work ethic and ambition. Just make sure you hold on to your integrity.

God Bless.
