5 Important Things That You Should Do In 2017

Here are 5 simple tips that we need to bear in mind as we travel throughout 2017. If you are serious to make this year a year for you, then you will find these simple actions important. So here they are…

1. Stop trying to please others: you cannot please everyone so stop playing hero. Furthermore, no matter how hard you try some people will still not be satisfied, and they will still have bad things to say about you. Focus on your goals and aspirations, instead of focusing on a life to please the world. Live your life the way you see it fit, and be happy with it.

2. Stop carrying people’s burden: why are you doing this? Continue reading 5 Important Things That You Should Do In 2017

Do You Make Wise Ethical Choices?

Ethical Choices

Do you consider yourself to be an ethical person? Does your speech, behavior, and action promote good ethics? Do you make wise ethical choices?

Who is an ethical person?

In life we should make choices that are guided by our moral values and conscience. So an ethical person is simply someone who knows what is right from wrong, honest from dishonest, fair from unfair, and acts accordingly.

I do my best to be an ethical person, but sometimes I falter, and that’s the truth. Because of my imperfections I sometimes find myself in situations in which I make unwise ethical Continue reading Do You Make Wise Ethical Choices?

Seriously, do you?  Do you really?  You don’t have to answer out loud.  Most people won’t.  I know.  I’ve spent most of my life being looked at strangely.  Why?  Because I don’t cavein.  Most people who have put me down made caving in and doing what others expected into an art form.

 I don’t much care if you think I’m ugly.  I don’t think I am.  I sure do not care if you think working hard is for fools.  Shoot, if that’s the definition of a fool, I’m proud of it.  As a kid, there were plenty of people my age running away from home.  I never even considered it.  I loved my family.  I had friends who were fun to be with.  Know what?  They loved my family as well.  They loved to be at my house. 

There were always people more popular…

The Single Life: REAL TALK

What really determines the value of a woman worth nowadays? Is it the quality of hair she has on her head? It is the brand or colored bottom heels she wears on her feet? Is it the average amount of likes she can get on the pics she posts on fb?

Those are all nice, have good monetary value and can help support a woman’s ego or vain confidence level, but the truth is, all of those things are external, temporary and really hold no weight to the foundation of a woman’s worth. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love hair, clothes, shoes and all that stuff too. But, I have come to learn that those “things” don’t define or determine my worth and value as a woman. As women, our worth and value is not determined by how we look or any external factors.

| So, if those external things don’t define…

When Was The Last Time You Jumped For Joy?

When was the last morning you felt so happy that you started jumping for joy?

Seriously, when was the last time you really jumped for joy and it wasn’t anything huge that happened?

Many of us have not learned the art of jumping for joy. Maybe the only time we jump for joy is if something huge take place in our lives that was caused by external factors.

Don’t get me wrong now, there are many reasons for us to celebrate our external achievements but we should not be too dependent on them because we cannot allow our happiness to be dependent on things we can loose. Continue reading When Was The Last Time You Jumped For Joy?
