HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016!

A NEW JOURNEY BEGINS

IMG_2282

My dear friends, readers, clients, and seekers of knowledge, wisdom, and the light of love, welcome to a new year, 2016! Wow, I don’t know if I can find enough words to say how grateful I am, that I am here, occupying this space in the earth, and I feel worthy and honored to be chosen to be here. This is a knowledge that sinks into me daily with every passing minute, and makes me own my breath, each inspiration and expiration.

Last year was an amazing year, full of ups and downs, tumultuous obstacles, and magnificent breakthroughs. So much was hoped for, so many dreams, and yes, accomplishments too. That means, somewhere, someone was working hard, burning the midnight oil, seeking knowledge, truth, and help. Most of all, seeking to participate in the cosmic assignment that is my own alone, me, my purpose on this earth, which I found out, part of it has to do with sharing and giving of myself, in knowledge, presence, and power.

I learned so much last year, I don’t know if I have ever worked as hard over what turns out to still be Phase II of a vision set before me years ago, a vision I started to see clearer 3 years ago, and a vision which I chose to execute emphatically just a couple of years ago. Turns out, it is not easy, figuring out the steps of life, but if you seek, are curious enough, courageous enough, you just might start with a step, the learning happens on the way forward. So, I fell, got up, fell again, got up, made mistakes, missed signals, got tired, burned out, and then I reached for help. Well, more like, help reached out for me, and after much struggle for control, I surrendered.

You see, the light of love is a powerful force that when you put out in the universe, it returns when you least expect it. Love found me and enveloped me in many ways that sent healing impulses to every part of my being. So, for three months, I took a sabbatical from my fast-paced existence, trying to do all good things out of proportion, to what I could humanly offer at this time. I reached out, tentatively at first, and the healing began, as I let go my control, and let the love and light of who I am, connect with love and light in the world. There was healing in the sounds of the wind whispering in the trees, in the chuckle of a baby, in the smiles of familiar faces, in the stern admonition from a caring heart, it was in the songs I started to write, the poems that dripped from my pen in the silence of the night, it was in the oppositions from nowhere which let me know I needed to go somewhere else.

 

While on my sabbatical, Leadership came calling again. My very esteemed and frankly, powerful women I admire, from my alma mater, decided to elect me President of the Houston Chapter of the association, LESA. I was really intimidated at first, what, I look up to all these women who have accomplished more than I was dreaming of, but who placed a great deal of faith in me. As a student of Our Lady of Lourdes Secondary school, in Cameroon, you have to understand the pride we felt, belonging to one of the pioneering private boarding schools for girls, who have turned out to be amazing leaders in the world today. They are leading and serving from the United Nations to Medicine, the boardroom to the most prestigious job of all, homemakers. As a wife, mother, and working professional, I do know what I am talking about. Thank you my sisters, for that honor, I hope my tenure as President for the next 2 years brings you great pride and honor. I am humbled again.

Love, light, and healing found me in every corner, and I enjoyed it, prospered, and woke up a better student, ready to learn some more, and teach some more! Part of my journey took me to share my labor of love with you all on my other social media networks. The announcement of my nonprofit organization Connecting Angels Inc, which in the years coming, will be the voice for Autism Spectrum Disorder especially among minority children. I believe I can not wait till I have “made it”, to give back, because last month it hit me, what if I die today, what if I die? So please visit http://connectingangelsglobal.org and make it your home for giving back this year.

I am sorry, I took so long to come back, but when the call to be more of who I am came, I took off running, and I don’t regret it, for now, I am back to you, a better me, a better student, and a better teacher. Now I am aware of how much me I don’t have to give, and how much me I can’t wait to give, and what is life, without true push and pull. So, here we are, a new year, my new address, my new invitation to you, to stick with me on this journey. Come back home to Pearls of Our Lives, where we speak and dine on truth, authenticity, knowledge, and curiosity. This year will be no different, just better, – this year we are seekers and students!

I will bring you pearls from my own teachers around the world, I will offer you the soup bowl of sages and soul masters, we will learn together, and as we learn, we will teach and coach. I desire for you, just as I desire for me, to expand and explore the reach of the awareness we have of our self, in relationship to the world around us. We will go beyond just the ME ME ME, to, how do I fit in the divine plan of the universe, God, cosmos, time, or however way you call it? There is just one ME, there is just one YOU, surely, this you is waiting to improve and expand, isn’t it. Start your journey here, it is the easy road, we are not masters here, just students of life, sharing and exploring. I will guide you with what I know, and I want you to guide me with what you know.

 

I love you all dearly. If you have taken the time to read all this, I love you even more, and I want to know you all by name. Just don’t read in silence, consume, and move on. Make your presence known, dialogue with me, pass it on to someone else, share, find your role in this journey. Follow me on twitter, my Facebook page Mah Mekolle, join me on instagram for updates and write me at mahmekolle@gmail.com. I will see you soon. Love you all

WORD OF THE DAY

KINDNESS

What does it mean to be kind? I am sure by now we have all received kindness in our life in some form or shape, and at some age, whether as children or adults. We know deep down what true kindness feels like, and we too have been kind. So, what stops us and prevents us from being kind with every opportunity that presents itself, why do we withhold kindness when we can give it? Why do we ration it with the people we love, and give it easily to strangers, why is it easier to say kind things to people who will forget us the next minute, and then be as nasty and hateful instead with the ones who are in our life daily?

When we withhold kindness, we are indeed reducing its capacity within us. We think we are exercising control, but in the end, we are giving away the essence of us, one of the beautiful things that still has the capacity to humanize us. Be kind today, let that be the key word for reflection. Think about the times today you could have been kind, said something kind or done something kind. Did you take every opportunity, or did you pace yourself as if your kindness might run out? If life has not given you an opportunity to be kind yet today, make one.

A HEALING CONNECTION

Today, it is all about making a healing connection. Are you trapped in a prison of your own making? In trying to protect yourself from the world’s negative forces, you might end up locking yourself up from life. I know that, I did that for years, then I broke out, and it was a scary but exhilarating feeling, and now all I want to do is touch and FEEL again, because it does feel good. I want to impart and infuse my own contribution of love, back to the world and the universe. There indeed is no greater feeling than realizing that you truly are in control of your destiny and happiness. Sometimes you hurt, sometimes you smile, that is LIFE! HAHAHAHAHAHA, and life is beautiful and good in all its imperfections, hills and valleys, life is good, and it is for the living. So, dare to live, which is the title of one of my favorite songs by Andrea Bocelli, VIVERE!

As usual, it will not be the same without all your support, please continue to support my work, by leaving your comments and feedback on my website, social media and most of all, the cheapest but most generous gift, SHARE! I take so much pride and time in creating this work, it is 3 am, and I have to rise up in 2.5hours and live the real reality of life, kids, and all other important things. Yet, when my soul and passion called for this message, I stayed up all night crafting and editing my work, because as I go to bed soon, I am hoping that while I sleep, maybe someone out there, hurting and numb from being numb their whole adult life, may hear my heart, and start to ease the shackles off.

Is that you? Am I awake this late for you? Well, then it was all worth it. For one, I will do what my heart says do, I LOVE YOU, reading this right now, and you are more worthy of all the attention and peace of the love of God. Seize your happiness, enough playing safe, dare into the world, LIVE, hahahaha, LIVE, or die numb, ….or do you feel dead inside already? Call me, let me lead you out, let me hold your hand, let me hear how you are doing, reach out to someone, even if not me, reach out to those who love you. Find someone, or call me, use my Coaching services, let me help you ease your suffering.

Follow my blog so you get updates to posts, then go find me on Facebook, twitter, Instagram and like/follow me. Then SHARE always. Be blessed

PAIN AND SUFFERING

PAIN AND SUFFERING.

Do we have to suffer for so long, before we know our pain has been honored? What is it about suffering that keeps us in a comfort zone? Is it the fear of moving forward or the anger against the pain?

Are you suffering from pain that won’t go away, are you confused, anxious, having difficulty with forgiveness? Call and schedule a free consultation with me, you don’t have to suffer much longer

JOURNEY TO YOUR CORE: WINNING part 3

  1. The race is personal
  2. The prize is subjective
  3. The price is similar; effort/energy/sacrifice

No matter what race or battle you are in, for everyone this is a personal struggle and fight. Some people are in a race, fighting for their life on a sick-bed, they just had a traumatizing diagnosis, they need to win, live. Others are fighting for their loved ones, in prison, custody, race for time to save those in battle. Some races are for the sake of the dignity of a human soul, a race to gain back control of your life, freedom, you want to win at being you, without any restrictions or from some negative people in your life, you are in a race to learn something, learn to forgive, let go, move on, let in, love. Everyone is in a race to win, but each race is very different

The prize is subjective, definitely, what each person is fighting for has a different meaning at the end when they win. No two prizes will feel the same, the accomplishment of each goal means something different for each one of us

woman-dancing-in-rain

The price is similar, yes, no matter what race you are in, it involves energy, movement, action, and also sacrifice. Depending on what you want to win at, it will not happen without some level of action. So, ask yourself. You might want to win win win, but, do you know what race you’re in, do you have the tools for your journey, do you have help, a team effort, what prize are you playing or gunning for, and are you ready to do what it takes, sacrifice, put in effort and energy?

Thank you, I hope you enjoyed this short training on WINNING. If you did, please let me know and also share with you friends and social media, that they too can be blessed. Do not forget to leave your comments and for more questions, email me at pearlsofourlives@gmail.com

Be blessed, lead with you heart, and do your best. Enrich your life and the lives of others

JOURNEY TO YOUR CORE: WINNING – VIDEO 1

TOPIC: WINNING

As part of my company’s launch, I will be doing things a little differently from when I was just a blogger. As an official business dedicated to the continuous and consistent training and inspiration of hearts, I will start to teach on some topics that really resonate with me. I see myself first as an educator, as a student and as a conduit for the life lessons I have learned. Again, my joy and my goal, is that for anyone who needs a lifting, a leg up emotionally, spiritually, and mentally, that my blog may be a constant resource to support you in your journey to navigating the life you have chosen, more successfully. I also welcome direct communication and topic requests from you all, in order for me to be more effective in reaching you. There are more than a million topics on Self-development, reaching goals, and more, but if I can speak to your heart directly, then my work will be done.

Journey to Your Core: VIDEO – WINNING part 2

“No one wins a race alone, to win you need a team” Mah

In part two of the topic on WINNING, I spend 5 minutes discussing two main things, no matter what race you are in, no one wins a race alone, every winner needs a team! What race are you in, and who is on your team? Are you struggling by yourself, are you in a race that will take years to accomplish, which could have taken just a few months had you found a good team? How about, in the case where you are winning, who are you taking with you on this journey? Are you lending a helping hand to someone else?

Please do not forget to share this video and website with others like you. If you are here reading this, then you are someone who believes in self-improvement, getting the best from life and adding to your already existing knowledge. Now, please do me a huge honor and let your network know about these pearls of wisdom. This is a labor of love, and heart, and you are now part of my team. I can not reach the heights that I need to reach those who need my help with anxiety, grief, spiritual and mental growth, and help with living a more joyful life, if you do not assist me in reaching them.

Thank you for your support so far, it will not be the same without you. He/she who asks not, has not. I am not afraid to ask that you continue to make Pearls of Our Lives your daily stop for positive enrichment. Do not forget to enrich me as well, I am in a school as a student as well as teacher. Please go to my social media and share my page with others, let us spread the word! Thank you and I love you all. Remember to enrich your life and the lives of others, lead with you heart.

HAPPY LABOR DAY AND THANK YOU!!!

WOW,

It seems like the month is already halfway gone and it literally just started, but I am full of joy and gratefulness, it might as well be Christmas time already. Oh words can’t express exactly how I feel. Just last week Wednesday, September 2nd, I celebrated my birthday and the launch of my company, Pearls of Our Lives LLC, your home for Positive Enrichment inspiration and Coaching. The only place you will find this brand of organic and down-to-earth inspiration and practical skills to help you lead a more enriching life full of meaning, no matter what you are going through.

I received so many birthday messages and words of encouragement, I was truly overwhelmed, touched by the power of people coming together for one purpose, to lift up another human being, and this time, it was me in your hands, high up in Visionland. I did not know that many people could possibly affect my life, even from so far away, and some of you, I have not yet had the honor and pleasure of meeting you yet, but I hope that as you make me a part of your life, that I can continue to affect you positively through my pearls of wisdom, and some good day we may meet.

I recorded this video, to say a huge thank you and welcome, for those of you who do not yet know me, please do not go anywhere. This is a labor of love, of self-discovery, which has led me to the fulfillment of one of my many dreams. I ask humbly, that you to stay with me as you see that dreams do come true, in this case, mine, to become an inspirational self-development coach, for people, who need comfort, a healing word, clarity where there is confusion and a voice of love, just to say I care and I know that you can make it. I feel most especially called to women, women who are struggling to balance life, as mothers, sisters, wives, professionals, and who go through difficult times managing the upheavals of life. The decisions we have to make, the choices we are forced to make, and as an immigrant, who grew up in Cameroon, West Africa, now living in the United States, I feel I know what you are going through. I can speak to your situation, I understand YOU, dear woman. Help is here, you do not need to live this life struggling through decisions alone. Stop by here for a word, call me privately for a free consultation, or just to say hello. Make use of this resource I am offering, reach out for help.

Remember, you are worthy all by yourself, because you exist on this earth, no man or woman gives you worth, it comes from inside, therefore, no man or woman should make you feel worthless. Positively enrich your life, and the lives of others.

Thank you all, be blessed

IT IS MY BIRTHDAY!!! WOOHOO

THE JOURNEY

Today is a very special day, for many reasons other than that September 2nd is my birthday. Today, I officially launch my company, Pearls of Our Lives LLC! Yes. It has been a long road, one which I will explain as the days go forth, so stay tuned please. Today I celebrate the achievement of just one of my dreams, to own and build a Life Skills and Communication company, dedicated to positively enriching lives through Self-development Coaching.

I started my journey to discover my own self many years ago, and that journey took me to the discovery of my natural gifts and skills. I finally acknowledged my gift for listening, not just with my ears, but with my heart, after enough feedback from friends and family I also realized that I had a natural gift for encouraging, inspiring and basically helping people see the bright side of things, the silver lining, letting them know, that although the storms may come, they never last, but if you hang in there, with me beside you, you will not drown nor burn, I will be there, empowering and equipping you to handle the life you have. So, pearlsofourlives.com blog was born, two years ago.

On my blog, I wrote my heart out, and practiced my other gifts, writing poetry, short stories, Food For Thought and basically exploring various expressions of the same message and theme, you can do it, you have what it takes, in your time of sorrow, here is how to look at life and navigate that point, laugh, smile, live, love, and most of all, create meaning in your life.

I thoroughly enjoyed blogging for these two years, that I knew that I wanted to keep on pushing and reaching more people. I decided to study and sharpen my craft. I already had over a decade working in the healthcare industry from the bottom up, as a Nursing Aide, to now as a Registered Nurse. I worked in the Operating Room, saw people at their most vulnerable points as they went through In Vitro to conceive babies, I worked on critical care units, taking care of patients in a coma, cleaned and bathed them, carried them, fed them, and also, I was there one time too many, when a patient lost their battle with life, and I was honored to be the nurse by their side. I love being a nurse, so enriching, and teaching. In order to enhance my Coaching skills, I enrolled in and got my certification as a Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming, and also now a student of Strategic Intervention Certification program, pioneered by the world-renowed Life Coach, Tony Robbins and Cloe Madannes. Please check out rmtcenter.com for more details.

I am a very spiritual person, my energy and my peace comes from my deep faith as a Christian, and now armed with a combination of my medical skills and Life Coach Certifications, I decided it was time to launch my own company. Today, on my birthday, I celebrate my journey of self-discovery, which led me to grow through the toughest circumstances and the best experiences, I found myself, found my core, discovered my passion and got my mission. I am here, to assist you in doing your own work of self-discovery, that you too many find and live the best life given you, through the discovery of your true self, your skills, and to help you navigate the storms of life, equipping you to handle your life. I am here to positively enrich your life, and the life of others, and I will lead with my heart, my head and my presence if you will honor me to continue to grow with me, and have me as your Coach.

I have so much lined up for the future, and I will reveal them in the coming weeks and months. For today, thank you for sticking with me, don’t go away, you are a part of this journey and I love each and every one of you. Reach out to me, if you need a hand.

THE POWER TO SEE OUR VISION COME TO LIGHT

 

What lies within us is far more powerful that the external attraction of what our eyes perceive. Sometimes we are blinded by the glitz, the bling, and glamor of what we think are the fruits of true labor in others, and yes, that well could be the fruits of true labor, and sometimes, the labor is not one you want to be a part of either. You see, judging a process simply by the appearance of fruit can be very detrimental, unless one is privy to the efforts taken to get there. On the other hand, fruits don’t lie, consistent fruit tells a tale of consistent effort.

In the end, we can only be accountable for our own efforts and our own fruit. While it is important to use the steps walked by others as an encouraging beacon to keep on working hard, we can’t become obsessed with their journey to the point of neglecting our own. This unfortunately has given rise to a celebrity and paparazzi-obsessed world nowadays, where we wake up trying to break the news of who wore what and married whom, rather than reaching inside our dreams to break the news of what steps we will take that day to accomplish our own dreams.

Be steadfast to your pace, your goals, your dreams and your visions, which have been custom-made for you. Admire and applaud the achievements of others with genuine admiration and a desire to learn from their positive steps. However, do not get lost in a world outside of your own, that might lead you to feel depressed that you are not progressing, lead to needless jealousy and envy, or self-deprecating utterances unto yourself. Move forward with you plans, believe in your visions and your ability to achieve, then take purposeful steps each day. Positively enrich your life and others. – MAH MEKOLLE
