Do you agree? "It’s not how fast you learn it, but how well you learn it that matters." An interesting statement that stood out to me as I was reading this week. I think this all depends on our outlook and whether or not we choose to dwell on our past memories and events that took place, or if we choose to focus on the future and what is to come. I’m very guilty of the “dwelling” piece, but I’m working on doing less of that. I’m also guilty of being on the “learning” side of this quote, but I’m working on that, too. All we can do is do our best and recognizing when we need to learn a lesson, learn it, and then the hard works starts. It then takes lots of effort shown consistently over your future. It takes a long time, especially if you took a long time to learn these lessons in the first place. Think about some of the lessons that you’ve learned throughout your life, or maybe some of the lessons you hope people in your life learn, and ask yourself if you agree with this quote.

Happy Wednesday. Do you allow people to steal your happiness? Often way too many people continuously live their lives trying to please others. We try to keep everyone around us happy, by trying to meet all their needs. This may sound selfish at first, but please know God doesn't want you to sacrifice your happiness to keep someone else happy. You are responsible for your own happiness. Stop being fearful that if you don’t do what someone else wants you do then they’ll get upset with you. Let them be upset! You shouldn’t fall out of favor with people just because you don’t always do what they want. If people are controlling and manipulating you for their own agenda, then you need to recognize this and you must learn to set some boundaries.
Don't go through life unhappy because someone close to you is making you unhappy. This goes for your boss, friends, mate, and family. You are not responsible to fix them, their situations, or their poor choices. Now there will be times when we all must show grace, compassion, and help others when they’re in need, but once people begin taking you for granted or not being respectful of your time then you need to stand up for yourself. You can do this in a respectful way, and let them know that you have some boundaries and they need to respect them and you. Remember, when you stand before God he's not going to ask you, did you keep everyone around you happy? He is going to ask you, did you live your life to fulfill your destiny? Your destiny is not to cater to others. Today and everyday remember YOU were not created to live an unhappy life, simply to keep someone else happy. Have an awesome and happy day! .
Be the weird you want to see in the world. We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness and call it love ' true love.
Life is amazing. Isn't it?
It gives us memories that are blissful and it also gives us memories that are dejected.
It just matters to not lose hope and live life ecstatically.
Smile. Laugh. Dance. Live. Sing. Love. Enjoy.
Help others and be kind, always.
Welcome others and smile, always.
Do what you love.
Pray, have faith and repeat. And watch where life takes you!

WATCH this video for a POWERFUL lesson. After his first wife’s death, one day a man was surprised to find that he had started doing all of the things she had once nagged him about. The reason why will surprise you. 😊
We often speak and feel like the other person isn’t listening. We try to “help” them change, but feel like no matter how much we try, nothing changes. They remain the same. Watch the full video for a message that will help you to convey your message more effectively ❤️
It would mean a lot to me if you would SHARE this video with your friends and family if it motivates you! 🙏🏼
I would love to know your thoughts in the COMMENTS.

We gonna walk it out
And move mountains
And I'll rise up
I'll rise like the day
I'll rise up
I'll rise unafraid
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again
And I'll rise up
High like the waves
I'll rise up
In spite of the ache
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousands times again

“If I go on a diet, I’m in a bad mood. I’d rather be a little heavier but nice.” -Salma Hayek
han•gry (han-gree) adj.
a state of anger caused by lack of food; hunger causing a negative change in emotional state; bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger.
Translation: #feedmeorillcutyou ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you ever snapped at someone when you were hungry? If you so, you may have experienced “hangry.” Why do some experience this phenomenon? The answer may lie in our physiology. Here are 3 possible explanations: 1) when carbs, proteins and fats are digested into their simple form, these nutrients pass into your bloodstream. As time passes after your last meal, the amount of these nutrients circulating in your bloodstream starts to drop. If your blood-glucose levels fall far enough, your brain will perceive it as life-threatening situation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) the glucose counter-regulatory response. When blood-glucose levels drop to a certain threshold, your brain sends instructions to several organs in your body to synthesize and release hormones that increase the amount of glucose in your bloodstream; two of which are stress hormones (adrenaline and cortisol) released in all sorts of stressful situations including the physical stress of low-blood glucose levels.
Lastly, hunger is controlled by neuropeptide Y and the Y1 receptor. Neuropeptide Y is released into the brain when you are hungry which then stimulates the receptor Y1. Both act on the brain to control hunger but also regulate anger or aggression. People may respond differently to hunger depending on the levels of neuropeptide Y in their cerebrospinal fluid. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As you can see, there are several pathways that can make you prone to irritability when hunger strikes (physical and psychological factors and/or cultural influences). Want to avoid feeling “hangry”? Eat before you get hungry. Not only can you avoid “hanger” but you can also avoid unwarranted caloric intake. Meaning if you wait to eat until you’re ravenous, by the time you feel hungry, you are going to want to eat everything in sight.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
