See the Change in Others Too

So often we believe in our ability to change, transform, & renew who we are; we move on from behavior that doesn’t serve us well into fruitful choices. Yet, we might not be as open or kind enough to accept or see these changes in others. We hold folks hostage to their past & see only what justifies our impression of them. No one holds the patent on being transformed, so make room for others to be different in your eyes, show love in action.

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.

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!

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: 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?

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.
