Thoughts

I’ve just been thinking a lot lately about what we put value on.

Growing up I’ve always heard adults talk about money and how it could change the dynamics of the family.

The conversations shifted over the years to how money is evil, like everything, you can argue the good and bad.

My focus is always on, what’s the solution?

Instead of money, I shift my focus to empathy and politeness.

Empathy is the new currency.

When you are aligned in your truth, the money will come.

When you are polite to people, in a genuinely way, more opportunities will zoom your way.

I hope this blesses you in some way.

This was my morning shower meditation.

Encouragement

I truly love to blog about positive energy and encouragement.

We can shift the world with prayer and empathy, I hope this bible verse touches your heart and lift your spirits as we tackle the week ahead.

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:25

Duke

I had to of been 4 or 5 when my parents gave me the responsibility of raising a puppy.

I’ve always been comfortable around dogs so there was never a fear factor. I truly believe that dogs are angels and they were sent here to protect us.

I can’t remember why I chose the name Duke, who was a mixed breed, half Boxer, half Labrador Retriever, but that name fit him perfectly.

Every summer I was operated on to fix my birth defect and any time away from my puppy made it even worse.

I had to envision myself running in the fields with him so I could heal fast and go home. That was my secret, I used the power of positive energy.

That dog was my lifesaver, he had human traits, it’s almost like he understood what I was saying, I miss him dearly.

I taught him basic commands such as sit, lay down, and I even taught him how to shake hands with either paw, and he taught me empathy and kindness, yes Duke taught me those things.

Duke was my best friend, we had a bond that could never be broken, just the thought of him puts a smile on my face, I know he is still watching over me in doggy heaven.

Be Kind

It’s very simple, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all #BeKind

Adapting

Being born with a birth defect(cleft lip and palate) weighing only 3 pounds and 9oz, blind in one eye, I’ve always knew how to adapt. I was humbled at the age of 4 when I looked in the mirror and realized that I was different. You laughed at me because I was different and I laughed at you because you all are the same. I never gave up, I kept pushing through, even after being bullied through elementary and high school. You do not have a disability because the biggest disability is one who has a negative mindset and if you hang around me long enough you will find that I don’t allow that energy. We adapt to our circumstances and we move forward.

Happy Monday

Happy Monday, happy week😊
