Your Success is Straight Ahead


Where am I going?

I look here, look there and everywhere.

I see the road ahead and I still do not know where I am supposed to go.

Many say, map it out!

Some say, plan it out!

Others say, know your destination!

Like the sound of a train making that choo-choo sound.

The smells of that smokey steam engine that permeate the air.

It passes by and I still have no clue!

There are days where things get out of hand.

And there are days where the focus is relentless.

Like taking a bite out of a favorite dessert, Yum!

But no matter where the destination?

Just know that your success is straight ahead.

Keep going, keep going and do not stop!

Life is a Gift


In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years. ~Abraham Lincoln

Life is a gift, an incredible gift not to be squandered, but merely cherished at every chapter experienced throughout a lifetime. I woke up longing for my life’s purpose. I  continue to search, and I search through taking pictures and my writing but I yet to find it. It is like a piece of my life’s puzzle is missing and I am searching for that missing piece to bring it to completion. In my soul, I see it I was meant to be doing something more, and there is an empty void inside my professional heart.

On a personal note: I am married to a good man I have an amazing family, and yet I question my professional side. It is as though I am not complete! I ask myself, “did I make a difference in someone’s life today?” Or, ” Was I able to make an impact for the greater good?”My answer is usually, “no!”

My decision? I plan to search for that one job that will fulfill my professional life. I sent three resumes thus far and will continue on my quest. The skies are the limit until I find the right fit for me! The area of my search will be broad I worked different roles. I will explore my options from this day forward…stay tuned!

Stop being Judgy!


“Even a book can be dangerous in the wrong hands, and when that happens, you blame the hands, but you also read the book.”
Erika Johansen, The Queen of the Tearling

I get sick and tired of humans going all judgy at first blush upon reading or hearing the news, instead of moving forward towards the truth. Nowadays through social media,  the information presented is at times intended to distort and sensationalize. We, as humans do not take the time to research before drawing a conclusion, it is crazy!

In our personal lives, there is always someone who will come up to you and say, “did you hear about so and so? ” And based on the information the person  receives, they will react and say, ” how awful!” Try and hold your opinion until the facts are checked out.

That is how things are in this day and age; it is our new normal! It is utterly pathetic! I, myself have been guilty of this and am working to improve on avoiding getting to judgy about the hearsay of every day.

Next time you read or someone tells you something that they heard. Refrain from commenting, do the research, fact check!

Food for thought.

Beware Of The Green Monster


Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live! ~Bob Marley

When it rears its ugly head, there is no stopping it. It is what I call, “The Green Monster.” What is a girl to do? You want to do right, but it can be very overpowering and at times can not be controlled. I am a woman with trust issues I must admit. It has been this way since I was a young adult. I know that the man I married loves me and will move mountains for me. When you feel this thing, this monster that gets inside your head. It is like you are temporarily possessed by thoughts and scenarios that are not true! You become accusatory, and before you know it, you are interrogating the man you love.  I am here to say, STOP IT RIGHT NOW! It will hurt you in the long run.

Self Discovery: Think about how you came to be this way. In my family, there was infidelity done by my father. I witnessed my mother look the other way, and she always would tell us, “I stayed in the marriage because of you, my children.” I felt a lot of guilt and in retrospect, as a child growing up I should not have inherited this type of burden. I loved my father, but I hated that he was not faithful to my mother. Hence, I believe it’s where it all began.

Self Recovery: Find the root of this evil and pluck it, before it ruins you and your relationship. I know I have received a lot of support from friends and family in the past. I have spent time searching within, and it is different for everyone that has experienced this. If it becomes out of control beyond family and friends, then seek additional support.  Destroy ” The Green Monster,” once and for all!

Good Things Are Coming My Way


006.jpg

I have begun a new job, a great opportunity, in case you are wondering. I believe that my past employment experience has brought me to this point.  My experience in dealing with people, implementation of change will bring it to fruition.

I will be part of a new team, a new division with lots of quick learning to be done and a seasoned staff.

There are skeptics just standing by, waiting for the other shoe to drop into the pit of failure, but if it is failure you are waiting for? Stayed tuned because none of that will come to pass.

Good things are coming my way!
