Your One Precious Life

what do you plan to do with your one precious life?
when you wake up every morning are you excited about your day?
what is your passion?
what drives you to keep waking up?
what would you place on your vision board?
what is your why?
What would you do if you could do it all the time? and last but not least what are you most grateful for? Be fearless when it comes to answering all those questions! Be fearless about life. Hold onto the things you're most grateful for as you pursue your dreams. Remember, 

"a mirror can show you who you are, but a broken mirror can show you a thousand possibilities of what you can be." - unknown

Not everyone is blessed with the opportunity to wake up every morning, dreaming about the life they'd love to live. For those who do get that opportunity, remember, images remain dreams if you're stuck in a maze of procrastination, discouragement and self doubt. 

Learn to eliminate every negative element in your environment, Then tell yourself

 "I deserve it, I deserve it all, I'm coming for it ALL". 

Obstacles may come along the way but they were not meant to destroy us, they were meant to strengthen and empower us. Propelling us forward towards our God-given destiny. Reminding us that our purpose is our own, so we need to hold on to it and pursue  it diligently. Doing something every day that brings us closer to our destiny.

Many of us make the mistake of giving others a mental powerpoint presentation of our goals, waiting for them to buy into our hope with words of affirmation. While we disregard the fact that the fastest way to fail is through words without action. If the vision was for everyone it wouldn't be unique, barely anyone would be passionate about it, its for you and that is why others aren't as passionate as you are. 

"I don't have to prove anything to anyone, I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what i want to say to the world" - Beyonce

You can't lead people into thinking you're fearless, if you don't believe in yourself enough to take a leap of faith. Its known that, "fearless" does not mean the absence of fear, its meaning lies in the essence of having fear but leaping forward into faith regardless. Push past the expectations of everyone on the outside and start to self affirm yourself back onto the road less travelled. Ignore the haters and the negativity, just do your thing because thoughts become things & nobody cares until everybody cares.

No one can give you whats already yours. You are what you're hungry for. Everything you crave is what you are. You wouldn't crave love if you're not a lover, wouldn't crave giving if you're not a giver and certainly wouldn't crave affirmation if you aren't affirming others, give it all to yourself. Sometimes we need to hold back from freely letting people to withdraw from our life if they are never around when we need a deposit. Acknowledge that sometimes all the care you give out so freely needs to be directed at yourself and used to build YOU up.  People will make you feel bad for wanting what you want but the fact you desire it is just proof that you are it.

 One day you'll be proud when you can confidently say you paved your own path. After all Robert frost did say; 

"I took the one less travelled and that made all the difference".

When you win I win.

When you win I win.
I tap into that little seed of faith
you've sown and watered,
so I can sow my own seeds and water.

When you win I win.
your success reminds me of my personal aspirations and
 how much harder I need to work
because the end goal isn't riches
but the lesson achievement teaches.

because your dreams aren't a party for one.
Just Like the sun, You Shine
Loud cheers and tears.
as you walk across that graduation stage.
walk up that aisle in a white gown or
take your first steps towards recovery.
You're succeeding but you're not done.
I win.

Because you show me
others like me
it CAN be done.

So when you win I win.
when your feet hit the peddle
and you get transported to a future that surpasses your past.
I win.

When you win I win
as you drop to your knees
and put your hands together
giving thanks so fast.
I win

Because I'm reminded that the Big Man upstairs saw my location
 and connected it to a glorious destination,
As he whispered to my heart
" darling Jeremiah 29:11"
and even before I can reach where I wish to be,
 I'm reminded to pray for where I am.

When you win I win
because i know,
before you die,
you can introduce yourself
to yourself
to your world
and to the world

Head held up
posture of a warrior
stepping on your struggle
as it elevates you to your success
When you win I win

Play it all back like a movie
slay life as you're moving

When you win I win

I tell myself, just put your hand in the hat
and pick out the story you're ready to share with them.
The world listens to inspiration
from struggle and strife

We can all win.

Peel each layer
Then slowly heal each layer
