~Friends How Many of Us Have Them?~

My professor's once said "if you say you have more than three friends you are lying." At the time he told my class that, I though he was wrong and I was debating with him. Little did I know, one day he was going to prove me wrong. At that time in my life I was super social and my phone use to ring off the hook. It rang so much that I use to hang up the phone in the middle of a conversation. I felt like superwoman saving everybody from their problems. Saving people who didn't want to change in the first place. It was like I was more worried about their problems than they were. That's when I realized I was caught in a hamster wheel, running miles and getting absolutely nowhere.

As time progressed God revealed their true colors to me. During this faze of my life I got really depressed, the ones who I called my friends were far from it. I would drink a lot during this time because I was so stressed out. What I didn't realize was after the alcohol was gone my problems were still there. I knew I couldn't fight this battle alone...I had to tap into my source which was God. I know that with his strength, I could pull though anything, and I did. I believe this quote can help explain it "I asked God to protect me from my enemies and then I stared losing friends."-unknown

I believe that everything in life happens for a reason. When God releases someone from your life, it's because their season is up. He puts people in your life to teach you lessons, you learn them and move forward. Believe me those lessons will only make you a stronger person. Now I am more content with my life and I choose quality over quantity any day. Now I can truly say I love my friends!

"There is no such thing as fake friends or true friends. However, there is a such thing as a friend no adjectives needed to explain it."-Me

~I Was Here~

I love this song by Beyonce every time I hear it I get chills. I believe everyone should leave this earth with a legacy. They say "a legend never dies" and that is so true. Take some time out of your day today and think about your legacy. Think of the ones that came before you and change your life for the better. Don't you want to do the same thing for someone else too? You may not know what it is right now, if you don't you better do some soul searching!

What is your Legacy? How will you let the world know you were here?

~Tis the Season to be Receiving~
I know a lot of people have told you tis the season to be giving, but what is giving without receiving? A lot of people shy away from talking about the receiving side, but me on the other hand not so much. Receiving is not being greedy it about getting what God has for you. I love receiving things, it could be something as simple as a compliment. When I get a compliment I take that expression of praise and thank the person who gave it to me.

Throughout the rest of 2011 I want you to say "I am receiving." That's right say it every morning when you wake up. You will be surprise at what you receive, just wait and watch. It could be money, a compliment, a new job/career, car, love, a free sample, a great deal on something. I really don't know what it is or what you're going to receive, all I know is it is out there. In order to receive you have to be able and willing to receive. Make sure your hands are free so you grab on to something new! Let go of the old to get something new.

When that time comes, let me know what you received :)

Which pill red or green?

In life we are faced with making decisions everyday. The decisions one makes today will affect that person tomorrow.

If you want to make a change in your life start today. Begin by writing down were you are right now on paper. And on the other side write were you plan to be. If you plan to transition to the other side of that paper, you have to start making the right decisions now. You will have to do something everyday to get to the goal side. You will have to break bad habits, disconnect from a few people, and look at your goal paper ever single day.

Steve Jobs use to ask himself this every morning "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" I want you to ask yourself the same thing everyday too, it will stop you from making the wrong decisions.

Only YOU can decide the life you want to live, and that begins by make decisions.

What will you decide to do?

Which pill will you take?

~My Smile is Unique~

I smile a smile that no one else can see

I smile a smile inside of me

I have to remember nine times out of ten that

My past is my past and nobody else can look within

I’ll say it fast I will say it slow, my past is like a Jack in the Box

The more you play with it the more I grow

I smile a smile that no one else can see

I smile a smile inside of me

Sometimes I get mad other times I’m sad

Because of the things I went through

I look at myself in the mirror

And the face looking back is beautiful

I smile a smile that no one else can see

I smile a smile inside of me

Because that person is me

If nobody else loved her who would she be?

A loveless girl

For everyone to see

I smile a smile that no one else can see

I smile a smile inside of me

Every time I wake up I smile and say I love thee

You have to love yourself no matter who you are

Because by the end of the night your that shooting star

You see why I smile a smile that no one else can see?

I smile to myself to say I love thee

I was like, you know what....I'm going to make myself some lemonade. Wow, if that wasn't the best lemonade I ever tasted!! There is going to be a time when life is going to throw you lemons. Those lemon are going to make you a stronger person if you take the right approach on the situation.
