Are we ever satisfied? Have you ever set a goal, achieved it, became content, and then went looking for the next thing? It’s fascinating how quickly our lives adjust to reaching a goal: We get our dream job and, soon enough, start wondering when the next promotion will come. We move into a new house and then, a few years later, start dreaming of the next dream house. The question, then, becomes how we balance being content—and grateful—where we are, while also being okay striving for something still greater. Oprah Winfrey once said: "I got so focused on the difficulty of the climb that I lost sight of being grateful for simply having a mountain to climb." #wisdom#satisfaction#desires#dreams#goals#inspiration#oprahwinfrey#iwantwhatyouhave
beyond lies tomorrow, a city populated by the hopes and dreams and wishes of a people who desire more, a people whose existence is defined by neither who they are nor who they are to be. those who find it never look back, and those who visit never return.
Such a simple yet POWERFUL MESSAGE. We were all created with vision, purpose, desire & greatness within us. Don’t ever underestimate the power of your thoughts. They are so much stronger then they seem!
Detachment comes down to a willingness to trust in divine timing and in the divine order of things. You can always move from demanding attachment to peaceful expectancy. From this shift you enter into a place of allowing, where you can rest knowing with absolute certainty that all is well right in this very moment. You also open yourself up to a different and better outcome than you had previously thought you wanted, by being willing to trust in Higher Intelligence. Trusting in something bigger to guide us always leads us to the right path, because Higher Intelligence always has what we truly desire the most. - Read the full blog post “Detachment Brings You Everything You Desire” (link in bio) #detachment#manifestation#desires
Make a decision today, that you are GOING to be happy.
You are not going to wait until some great "thing" happens to you. You are going to choose right now to be happy.
We can literally step into a new role whenever we choose.
Our past does not dictate our future. They are utterly unrelated. We can decide in any moment to be a different person.
Who do you wanna be? Are you currently the person you wanna be? What does that future version of you who you wanna become, have that you don't?
Stop having a pity party, do not blame anything outside of yourself for anything. When we blame, we give away all our power. You can create whatever you want in your life, if you just choose to.
The fact that you are alive today means that you are someone special. We all have a unique gift to give to the world. We all have a TOTALLY unique perspective on things that nobody else on the planet has. Nobody else has experienced our life like we have.
Every experience that we've had, or haven't had, whether good or bad has made us who we are. We are a result of everything.
EXPECT good to happen every day. Live every day with this thought; "Something good is going to happen any moment". Your beliefs lead to your thoughts, your thoughts lead to your actions, your actions lead to your result. What results are you living right now? If you don't like them, change your beliefs.
You can choose your beliefs, your current beliefs do not have to define you.
Just make the choice.

What are the desires of your heart? A good job? A spouse? Growth in spiritual gifts? Whatever the desires of your heart, God has revealed to us how to get them. He has instructed us to “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4). In other words, delighting in the Lord equals receiving the desires of your heart. However, among all the desires of your heart, make God the Desire of your heart because as He blesses you with your desires, you will find that only one Desire can fill the ultimate longing in your life. Reflect on what you spend a lot of your time yearning for, acknowledging that this desire is not God – the only One who can truly satisfy. Mine is acceptance by others. God is working on me. What is yours?- By Na'Shantéa
Psalm 37:3-4 NIV
When I make it my mental aim to delight myself in the Lord, I put my other desires on the back burner, purposely, to concentrate on His presence. Sometime later, when I have been obedient and willing to bend, He always blesses. ...
Sometimes it is not until I receive the blessing that I realize, in doing so, God has revealed and fulfilled a desire of my heart I wasn’t even able to recognize fully or identify with words before the special delivery.
When you have #goals , #dreams , #aspirations , #projects , #plans and #desires (as what being "on a mission" means...), you quickly realize how valuable your #time gets and how this time should be spent and with whom. You realize that time can no longer be spent on trivial things or with people not that interested in seeing you progressing or heading further (than them...) in life. You realize that in order to pursue your journey you gotta surround yourself with people that strongly believe in you because they know you are special and what you are capable of, they know that your journey is meaningful, and that it is worth the #love and unconditional #support .
It's truly like building a house, you cannot do it by yourself, you gotta have fellow builders who believe in the positive outcomes of building this house together. In other words, you gotta have a #faithful and #loyal TEAM where everybody plays a specific role. .
Which is why it is wiser to devote your time with people respecting & valuing your mission. Anybody slowing you down, wasting your time, keeping you waiting, playing hide and seek, or not having time for you or not even interested in what you do really, doesn't deserve your precious time either because you can't go anywhere with people who simply don't care or are "too busy", so why bother lol. It's all good in di end though. .
That said don't be surprised after you do a lil cleaning in your entourage while reorganizing your priorities to find yourself... ALONE lool. It takes time to build a loyal team because people gotta prove themselves to you first and many can't even get to that stage because their masks fall off in the meantime revealing their true nature. .
Cherish those that truly care and encourage. Keep them close. Cherish those that support, help and show genuine love. Keep them even closer. Ditch the fake and the toxic and watch your life improving and your circle strengthening for the better... ;)
We were sitting alone in the balcony of her college auditorium. An drama was being performed on the stage. That was the first time I went under her clothes. I just sticked my hands on her heart. It was beating like some rock band's drum beats. And so was mine heart.
She didn't stop me that day. She just holded my hand tightly. Looked at me. I looked at her.
And that was another moment I captured in my eyes.
Her trust for me was being reflected by her look. And I promised myself that very moment, this girl would never regret falling for me. I promised I would touch her soul , before going for her body again. I'm glad I did, because the beauty of her soul could fail, the best that the eyes define.
It’s amazing how the structure of this four walled place called a bedroom has captured some many of Love’s precious moments,
I mean out of all the privileges life has given me I have the honor of waking up to you the morning after for a lifetime to come,
The way sun presents your beauty as its sun rays are projected at a degree that highlights the very thing I’ve fallen over mountains for...that masterpiece of a smile,
No use in making the bed up when this is our very sanctuary to indulge in the presence of one another,
This is where I nibble on your ear and your face delegates emotions through physical actions of grabbing on tight to anything that’s near,
Here where I comfort your mind from the depression of the world’s weight of life,
And as I wrap you up in these arms of “never letting go” and the covers wraps us up in a sweet bliss,
I’m breathing gentle on the lower part of your neck planting the thought of knowing I’m never too far from reach,
Those mornings where the shades of us are captured on the walls around the room reminding you it’s always you and me,
Your joys and happiness encourages my persistence here in this bed of both nirvana and serenity,
Here is the feeling of being alive. ———————————————————————— #Poetry#Spokenword#BedroomChronicles#CreatingBeauty#Abstract#Music#LovesHere#Memories#Evolution#Desires#Art#MereWritings#PoetryCommunity#Crafting#EvolveYoungPoet
