A SIMPLE PRAYER

Snip20160204_2

Some days, all we have to do, is surrender to the possibility, that we do not have all

the answers, and we do not control everything. In that moment we surrender to the

force within us, the healer and all-knowing. We call him many things in different

languages, but he is God, the creator, LOVE. reach out to him, surrender, ask for

peace, then sit back and receive it. Rejuvenate your spirit, knowing, while you

seek and work for the best in this world, you do not hold all your answers.

WHAT’S YOUR PERSPECTIVE?…

“When all is said and done, God loves me more than I could ever love myself. As a result of this belief in God’s unconditional love, I can tap into its essence and love myself enough, that my love shines through pain, distress, anxiety, fear, and hopelessness, to open my eyes to the beauty of life; and then share it with others” – MAH MEKOLLE

It’s sometimes all in your perspective, isn’t it? No matter how many sermons we listen to

or how many times we are told that we are worthy of joy, peace, hope, and most of all

LOVE; in the end, all that can be in front of us, and we still won’t see it. I have found

my perspective wreak havoc in my life, when all I could see was “poor me”, or

“it’s them”.  When I chose to see what I desired and wanted for my life, soon, I started

to see possibilities! It’s not about being blind to the truth of what our life is like, it is

about expanding our perspective to see more than just the circumstance  that might

not change that moment. There is always a spread laid out for us, can we see it?

 

What does your perspective show you about your life, your possibilities? Dark or colorful?

 

 

 

Weather Your Storms

What habits have you cultivated when it comes to your attitude about storms in your life? Are you set immediately in a panic, do you fret and worry, and begin to speak of all the dreadful “what if” possibilities that could arise from the storm, rather than look for the positive angle? Maybe it is time to start growing that inner muscle that says, no matter what, I have what it takes to weather the storms in my life, for they will come, and go, but I will be the factor that decides if I go with the storms or not.  Mah Mekolle

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: 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

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?

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
