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

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

HONOR YOUR ROLE TO YOURSELF

Are you feeling overwhelmed by life and all the roles you have to play? Oh my if you are like most people, you have to play the role of a mother, father, sibling, caretaker, guardian, aunt, Step-parent, colleague, Manager, grandchild, and many many other roles. These obligations can sometimes make you feel like you are going to drown, and then you forget the most important person, your role to yourself.

Your first role is to yourself. Take a moment to realize and know that you are doing your best with the tools that you have on hand right now. Your best might not be solving all your problems and meeting the outcomes you desire, but it is your best effort and there is room for improvement, always. As you watch my video, I want you to imagine you are looking in the mirror, or if you have one available, go and look into it. Who do you see looking back? You. You are your first responsibility. Your duty and role to be at your best, expect your best, and give yourself the best chance comes first. You can not effectively and consistently be so much for other people, forgetting to replenish the giver of time, emotions, finances, and much more, if you do not take time out to take care of you.

Know when you need to step back, whether mentally, emotionally, spiritually or other, in order to recharge, regroup, feed your spirit, your heart and mind. Take that time unapologetically but not recklessly, do it for your sanity, you deserve it, you have earned it if you truly have been trying your best. Remember that we are all on a journey towards the end, do not rush yourself into a mental breakdown just because you got too busy, felt too important in the lives of those you love and take care of, that you didn’t pause to honor your role to yourself. If you breakdown, the people you are doing all this for, will end up lacking what you are killing yourself trying to provide. So, if you want to still be there, doing these things, honor yourself, recharge, be your number one champion.

Let me read and hear from you, practice this and tell me what your experience was. Have you learned to take time out for yourself, is it hard, and what are your obstacles?

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.

REMOVE THE CHOKEHOLD 

… So, are you holding on to unforgiveness? Are are holding your breath waiting for your offenders to croak from your unforgiving chokehold and expire? You sure? So why are you still holding on so tightly?

Forgive and move on, don’t ask too much, why?, just make the decision to forgive, which means letting go the chokehold that event, person or people have on you. You see, letting bitterness take over is actually a new chokehold you put around your own neck. So, again, forgive and move on. Don’t think too hard, cause in essence, you’re freeing yourself!
