Even when it seems like everything is going wrong in your life, there is always something that’s going right. You owe it to yourself to find out what that is and bring it into your awareness. No one will love you if you do not love yourself. No one will make you happy if you do not radiate happiness. No one can give you confidence if you don’t feel self-worthy. It’s not a matter of someday. You can make that choice to drop that low spirit and strive to have a brighter and happier life, because the more you focus on the good stuff, the more good stuff you find. … More Celebrate Everyday!
The world we will wake up to on January 1, 2018 won’t be the same world we entered exactly one year ago. You never really notice how the atmosphere has shifted until you look back over the past 365 days and realize that considering the events of the year that’s passed, there is simply no way we can move forward without feeling changed in one way or another. Except you’ve been in a comma for the past 365 days, events that have happened are bound to have changed us in one way or another. Unfortunately too, 2017 introduced the world to a lot of heartache, natural disasters, and man-made tragedy across board. But my hope is that we can all find solace in a clean slate and learn from our misfortunes moving forward. … More Towards a better New Year
Have you ever wondered what the intent behind the question, “Is it a boy or a girl?” is? What difference really is that question fashioned to achieve? The joy of a new born shouldn’t be diminished by the gender of the child.

As soon as the gender status of a child is announced by the medical attendant after the delivery as a girl, some parents receive such supposedly good news with disappointment and dismay. While it is taught over and again that the sex of a girl is determined by the dominance of the male chromosomes, most men still castigate their wives for bearing a girl child. … More Rejection and neglect
It would seem cliché to post this article on a Sunday – it’s Sabbath and I’m talking about heaven. Anyway, so yesterday being Saturday I was at home with my family. The past one week has been something else, health-wise for me but its times like this that I know more than ever before that there has to be a God (who sits in the hearts of men who believe in Him) and rules the affairs of them. All the while my kids won’t stop going, ‘mommy I want this, mommy I want that’. Phew! Kudos to moms.
So just in a brief moment of yesterday, I got some relief from all the pain and discomfort and in that moment I thought, “What a relief. This feels like heaven”.
And my thoughts can go from just watching a butterfly to the wildest thoughts sometimes. I then began to think, if in this brief moment of relief it felt like bliss, like heaven then what is heaven? Where is heaven? What would it feel like? What would it look like? … More Where’s your heaven?
