I was raised fight everyday for the ones you love .... protect all your love ones ..... GIVE THEM UNCONDITIONAL PASSES .... NEVER GIVE UP .... love hard and extremely........ yep that’s me ... Keep that in mind when you’re searching for reasons to be compassionate to people that you feel are coldhearted or guarded. It takes time and a lot of changed personal experiences to see it differently. #morningsweetness#compassionatecommunication#bekindtooneanother#reapwhatyousow . .
I believe this is what makes life so challenging yet beautiful at the same time. Getting past the roadblocks and the fear can be some of the hardest things that we do, but we all know deep down that it’s what we have to do to become the greatest version of ourselves. Never give in and keep pushing forward!
"The grass is greener🌱where you water💦 it"
Are you investing in yourself? Are you interested in creating a residual income option for you and your family?!
What would you do with u the watered seeds you planted? 💰
Wow oh wow, tis’ the season to pick. There were pumpkins, squash, and so many kinds of apples to choose from. Plenty of veggies and fruit to choose from when they are in season.
How many times are we looking and picking fruit off season?
Fruits that need the time, perfect conditions and environments in order to ripen.
What does the picking season look like in your life? Is the harvest plenty or scarce. Do things in your life need time to mature, do you need to be placed in certain conditions and environments around people to either fertilize you for growth, challenge you in a way that brings fruition, water you for refreshment?
Therefore, when the season for picking is right fruition will come, do not lose sight from your current circumstances because “in due time you will reap a harvest”.
Yesterday @pollyane (@raphamc's wife) tagged @simplesmente_fran and I on her stories - this is @jackiedepaula & @depauldesigns wedding day. Photographs have the power of bringing back memories... And this "memory" is over a decade old. The nicest thoughts I had looking at this pic were:
1) All 3 couples are still married! In this era that marriages last days, months or a few years only, that's a HUGE blessing for all of us; being a simple but important and effective example to those who surround us. I'm sure none of us consider ourselves superior because of that, we're just positively "reaping what we've sown". 2) We're all parents; yet another blessing! Being able to maintain a family, and raise our kids in CHRIST is even better!
3) Even though Fran & I live in Massachusetts, Jackie & Dan in New York, and Polly & Rapha in Florida, we still keep in touch. Barely see each other, but when we do, we have a blast.
Even though I kinda dislike and don't have the patience for social media, when used correctly it can be a great tool to keep in touch with family, and people that we don't see on daily basis, but have the "luck" to call them friends 😉
You've heard "We reap what we sow" right?
Too often we think we can plant a seed and gather the fruit but in reality we must do a few things before the harvest.
1. Plant on Fertile Ground
2. Water the Seed and Give it Love
3. Harvest when Ready
This weekend, I saw some seeds I planted years ago come to life. If it wasn't for years of working on myself, learning to love others where they are at and being open to change, these seeds I planted would have withered years ago. ✌❤🙏
Before pride. Before recognition.
There is first ☝️ Your first thought. Your first step. Your first goal. Your first breakthrough. 💥
Be determined to go first. Put it in your blood. Put it in your sweat. Build it into the nature of who you are.
Go to the edge.
And when you get there, build a bridge
And KEEP GOING FIRST
Always go above.
Always go beyond.
And when everyone else is turning back
YOU GO FIRST💪🔥 LET’S GO
Study your failures like like you’re studying for the SAT. If you can effectively pick apart and see how you can improve and keep getting better through each failure, it will be life changing. It will shift your perspective on failing and you will want to keep doing it more and more and more. Not because you like messing up.. but because it will guide you on a path to prosperity.
