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.

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?

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.

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.

HONOR YOUR COMMITMENTS

In my last post, I talked about the importance of honoring you role to yourself. I said that the most important human being on this earth should be you, not so that you can be selfish, but that your role as your champion should lead you to pursuing the best of life, so that you can be and give your best to those you love and who depend on you.

Today I want to talk about honoring you commitments, not only to yourself but to others. When we accept who we are and what we are here for, it is no secret that we enter into commitments with people, with our jobs, home leases, cars, friendships, marriages, and many other forms of commitments. However, how much practice do we have with keeping our commitments?

Truth is, a lot of us fail at commitments, not because we are bad people or not trustworthy, it is hard to do your best every day and succeed at it every single time. So, we get hard on ourselves, we feel dejected and sometimes we are afraid to try again, to make it right. What we forget is that the people we disappoint, or the people we think will not forgive our wrongs, are just as human as we are. We often let ego get in the way, and we reject ourselves even before we are rejected.

Make your commitments and keep them. Be the best colleague you can be, try to be the best partner, parent, child, friend. Know that dropping the ball is part of life, but know and have the humility to ask for a second chance to make things right. People are not as hard-hearted as we think. We make them that way when we behave in a manner that makes them feel they need to protect themselves from you. Avoid making a habit of breaking your commitments, for sooner than later, you lose the relationships you have worked hard to build, whether in business or personal. Do not however, run away from commitment, how else will you achieve your goals if you do not commit.

This week, practice your commitment to the little things, and then the big things. If things do not go according to plan, regroup, try to make it right, and if it is too late, move on and be better on the next task. Let me hear and read from you, what is your take on honoring you commitments? Have you made a commitment to yourself, that you will pursue a particular dream, goal, purpose, explore your gifts? What is going on with that commitment, what are you doing to honor your commitment to the most important person on this earth, you? Dig in, reach deep and commit to begin the most authentic you, that you can be, then try each day to be the best of that authentic self, see the magic happen. It may not rain money, buy oh it will rain joy, and soon enough, your joy in your purpose and authenticity will lead to the comfortable life you crave, financially, spiritually, emotionally and in relationships. Have an amazing week!

PAINFUL GROWTH

When we grow chronologically, there is no guarantee that we are also increasing mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. It takes intention, choice, and work to increase our level of understanding. The experiences we go through as night turns to day and day to night, provide the substance for the work. As we navigate the substance of life’s experiences, we fall, rise up, learn, strive harder, work harder and the cycle continues year after year until we die.

Learning is not always a given, we must choose to learn or see the lessons in our experiences. When we miss the lesson, life has a funny way of bringing us back to that learning curve until we get it and make better choices. If we are lucky, it rotates back to the same person so we do better, or it presents with someone different and we do better there; it does not matter who, it matters more what we learn from it.

We will always be challenged, we will always fall as long as we live, but our choice to rise when we fall is totally up to us. How we rise after a fall depends on what we lean on or use as a crutch. We can rise up kicking and screaming with rage, denying the truth, insisting on our righteousness, and many other defense mechanisms, or we can rise up in truth, acceptance, and change, knowing we have more lessons ahead to prepare for.

When we find that it is hard to let go then we need to pause, stop thinking about them, the circumstances, the job, the anger, the child, the bereavement, the divorce, – just STOP thinking externally. START looking inside. All those things that happened are done. Now it’s all about our intentional work towards spiritual growth and healing. It takes practice, it’s scary, and hard to face who we are, what we see about ourselves. Just remember, when we do it right, the result is an amazing self-love, self-respect and love for others. When you have learned to do your work, you won’t let anyone take that away from you, you protect your growth and help others respect it, all with love.

Ask yourself today, when it comes down to choosing, what are your choices? Do you choose what is just, or what is easy to swallow, do you choose to uphold truth in yourself and others, or slide it conveniently under a rug. What do you fear?

There’s peace in standing for something knowing you have done your best.

DO YOU NEED HELP?

How many of us go through life thinking we have to solve all our problems?

How many of us are scared to ask for help, for whatever reasons?

How many of us think asking for help is a sign of weakness?

How many of us don’t want others to say they helped us?

So many reasons why we fail to avoid simple stumbling blocks,

mistakes that delay and derail us. Asking for help is a sign that

you are ready and willing to grow as fast as you can, and that

you are confident and secure enough to not care what others

might think.

DP 20

You have a lot to gain by seeking those who are

doing something you want to do. Be prepared to return the

favor to those who need you some day, it’s a cycle of kindness

& wealth. Seek help, seek mentors, and if you don’t find one,

at least, you tried. Remember, if you want to fly, don’t

seek advice from one who has never flown before, choose

your mentors wisely, those who can further your goals.

THE WILL TO CHANGE OUR DESTINY

Who knows what the future holds? You, me? nobody knows. You do know one thing though, you know exactly where you are today, where your feet are standing, with whom and with what. You also know where you were yesterday, the past. I suggest, whether the past was sweet or bitter, do not dwell and make yesterday your resting spot. Reflect on today, ask yourself if this is where you want to continue to be, then make choices to maintain it. If today is not a reflection of your desired destination, the more reason to strap on some tools and head for the improvement of your future, whether financially, spiritually, emotionally, socially, politically or in any way that means something to you. Do not just stare and not do anything.

WHY WORRY
WHY WORRY

PEARLS ON WEALTH SERIES

In the grande scheme of things, when all has been shared,

when all the work has been done, man goes down alone,

man is buried alone, unless unfortunately buried in a mass grave.

Most people who have time to prepare for their death,

leave a will if they have anything of material importance.

However, for the most part, when time comes to say that final goodbye,

people look for people, not money, people.

They seek out relatives long-lost, they want to reconcile with friends,

daughters, sons, spouses and neighbors; material things don’t

seem that valuable when you’re impaired, sick, or dying.

The folly of youth is thinking there is time, the justice of time is knowing 

there isn’t any to waste. Make a connection with someone you know

that needs you, reconnect with someone you know you should never

have broken away from, if they are still available to make room for

you in their life. When it comes time for the closing of the eyes,

man goes down thinking of hearts, not gold, hearts.

Where is your wealth-building leading you today, what are you

investing in that will ensure you need not worry on your last breath?

who reaches for your hand? Will there be a hand to reach for? Wealth,

are you chasing the right wealth today?
