Do not be afraid to turn your back on anything hurtful in your life. Give to yourself and to others the present of absence. We live in fear many times; Fear of rejection, fear of loss and fear of time spent without result. There is no such thing. During the times we spend we learn and grow and we become better people hopefully. When it is time to walk away from something we are often afraid that we will lose out or won't be able to handle the hurt that comes from it. The
Dear God, help me find beauty in everything. I need you to help me see the clouds as something to bring nourishment and not something to rain on my parade. Let me see lack as something to make me wise, not to make me suffer. Give me a heart of compassion that is born from my struggle and not a bitter one. Let me love others like I've never been hurt simply because I know You were with me every step and you didn't let any situation overtake me. Give me eyes to understand tha
Today is one of those days where my heart is full of expectation. I have so many blessings on the horizon and I feel overwhelmed. It is like butterflies in my heart. There are times in life when pieces start to fall into place but not because you have orchestrated it. It is because God looks into your heart and says, I have seen your work and this is your season. People who know me intimately know my struggle. They know how hard I have loved and what I have given, even to
Do it! Shut the hell up. Somebody needs to tell you because you clearly don't get it. Hell is everything bad; The stuff you don't want in your life and the things that cause you grief. Stop inviting hell into your situation. Let me give you some examples: "All men cheat" "I'm sick and tired" "I'm gonna die" "People are jealous of me" Are you starting to understand now? You see, your words have power and as a matter of fact, many things that you have said over the years ar
No one matters but me. I mean it. I know, it sounds selfish... and I don't really care. When I was growing up I listened to my mother and my father. They had dreams for me and they had their own issues they were working through. There I was, a child, soaking up everything like a sponge, trying to become that version of me that I thought would please everyone around me. Its really what most of us do. We want to be good, worthy, honorable and enough. We want people to s
I started writing a song called, "Animal" and I've yet to finish it. It was written with a bachelor I know in mind. It is true, there are some people, and not just men, who are hard to tame. I actually find beauty in it. It is not a challenge, it is an understanding. When someone is hard to tame, they want to be sure. They want to be certain that they are not making mistakes. They want to settle in smartly and not be disappointed. They want to be loyal to the significanc
Today is the day, to believe, to love, to leap, to just do it. There is no time like the present and life is not promised to anyone. Laugh loudly, hug often and lunge in the direction of your love. Whether that is a talent, a relationship, a goal, a new career, the only thing you have to lose is fear. If you fall on your face get back up and try again. Many have fallen before you and still recovered. Time is short; many did not wake up this morning but you did so don't
I was laying here at my computer thinking about some of the things I have done over my career and remembered this beautiful song. Alexander Boynton asked to feature me and I am very proud to share this youtube link to the full song. Enjoy.
