Open Palms

Often times, we hold on to things that are familiar or comfortable even when we know those things aren’t for us.  By holding on, we are preventing ourselves from grabbing on to things that is far greater for us.  There is so much out here for each and every one of us.  Don’t suffocate yourself, your future, and your dreams by holding on to things that are meant to destroy.  An open palm is a receiving palm.  Let’s get the best out of life!
And make today great on purpose!

EVERYTHING!

We can’t do anything halfheartedly and expect to have sustained success.  Instead, we must commit ourselves to wherever we are wholeheartedly.  If we set our minds to be successful in our present state, we then set ourselves up to be successful in the areas of choice.  We have everything it takes.  But it will cost you everything today, to have everything tomorrow.   Don’t allow actions of today to short change your future.
Let’s make today great on purpose!

Find and Spread!

The inspiration we need is already inside of us.  Our task is to find it and pull from it as much as possible.  Once we find it, our task then is to spread it.  Find and spread. Find and spread. Find and spread!

Separation

There is a time for everything.  A time to connect and a time to separate.  In the pursuit of greatness, we at times have to separate ourselves from some nouns.  You know persons, places, and things.  As we enter into this weekend, take some time to think about what needs to be pruned out of our lives.  Just because some nouns are removed from our presence doesn’t mean that love is removed from our hearts.  It just means that it’s time to grow and we’re ready to take the steps to facilitate that growth.
Let’s make today great on purpose!
Have a great weekend!

Just a friendly reminder of how awesome you are.  Now it’s your turn to remind someone else.  Let’s keep the train of positive encouragement going.  Speak life.  Breathe and exhale life.  Exude life.  You will never know who will need your friendly reminder, but someone does.  Be the light that dissipates clouds in the life of others.
Let’s make today great and bright on purpose!

The Past

A few moments ago I was in my kitchen fixing a sandwich when a thought came.  When you think about it, this thought is simple.  It’s one that you’d think would be known and applied by all. It’s simply:

The past is there for one to learn from, not to live in!

We all have things from days, weeks, months, and or years past that consistently plague our minds.  Things that we’d love to do again.  A situation that we’d love to be a part of again, be it a person, place, or thing.  But no matter how sweet that memory may be, it’s over.  And if we are speaking honestly, it ended for a reason.

Still, we try hard as ever to hold on or go back to what we never can.  We try to force or recreate things that should never be again.  Then get frustrated because despite all our efforts, we can’t win.  So what do we do?

Accept what’s happened and move beyond it.  In trying to hold on or recreate what shouldn’t be, we put ourselves through unnecessary torture and trauma.  And none of us need that added stress.  We’ve all heard the adage, “You can’t effectively drive a car by only looking in the rearview mirror.”

Life is trying to offer us something new, something greater.  But we will never be able to receive what life has to offer if we refuse to let go of yesterday.  So let go.  Stop holding the past as a standard of measurement, for it can in no way compare to what’s come if we open ourselves up to the opportunity.

Learn from the past.  Cherish the present.  Look towards the future.

Note To Self

There are so many things that matter in life.  Different people will rank these things in various orders on their list.  But the one thing that should never be left off of any list is making yourself proud.  That means living to a standard that makes you happy.  We can do a lot for others, but we cannot live for them.  Attempting to do so would be a disservice to yourself.  Find what makes you happy.  Pursue the goals that you will be proud of.  Because there are not many things greater than being able to look in the mirror and say, “I did it!”  Make yourself proud!
Let’s make today great on purpose!
