Strength in Numbers

Most people do not know the degree of their personal strength until they are forced to display or utilize it.
Strength is something that comes from in. Although, your inner self may possess it your outer self may not know just how much but believe it is on reserve for when it is needed.

When you feel tied down by your troubles read down inside yourself and find he will and way to move forward. It know it may seem like when it rains it pours and one thing after another keeps happening. The continuous amount of burdens builds strength.

Maybe what you admire in others but believe in the same abilities in yourself. TO be it you must believe it.

In strenous situations and when under pressure, just like a lump of coal you have the ability to come out shinning. Hold on because troubles don’t last always.

The Learning Curve

You are never to old to stop learning and never to young to start.Those are words of wisdom one should adopt into their everyday life.

Learning, traditionally has been said to take place mostly in a classroom or academic setting. However, we all learn on our own accord.

Do not let others dictate how, when, where, why and or what you learn because the learning experience is unique to each individual. You must make the best decision for you and your advancement. There is no one universal standard of learning find you the one best suited for your needs.

There is a lesson in everything it is up to you to learn it. Learn as you go and trust your abilities. Open up your mind to new things and you will be opening up yourself to a learning process.

Yes it can be as simple as that. Exposing yourself to new things can expose your mind to new ideas and the discovery of new experiences can be learning experiences. Stimulate your mind it is often the first step in the learning process.

Most things are mind over matter and the key to conquering that is understanding that your mind is all that matters.

Anywhere, anytime, doing anything can become a learning experience, so seize all opportunities.

We All Need a Little, Sometimes a Lot, of Encouragement

Building a relationship is like building a business or a brand. The key to either is a firm foundation but once the foundation is established continued support is the most important element.

Support can come in many different forms such as emotional, physical or financial.

Life is often a team effort and what you need you must be willing to give.

Encourage me and I will encourage you and together we can conquer the world. A little support can go a long way and a little support can change your life.

All it takes is a little positive support system and you can do anything.

People often grown jealous of close connections because they feel left out. Instead of envying or trying to destroy a bond seek to create and expand meaningful healthy bonds.

Who is your support system and why?

The Law of FireFly

I have lived 26 years and have had valuable life experiences and through this I have develop my life laws!

1. Make a list. Life flows smoothly when you know what needs to be done. When you see it you can accomplish it instead of wasting time thinking about what you need to be doing it you can just do it!

2. Treat yourself. You are very special and need to be treated as such but do not look to others for the treatment that you should be proving yourself. No one is saying go buy a $1,000 pair of shoes if you can not afford them but do something nice for yourself. It can be as simple as a bubble bath by candlelight.

3. Try something new. It is important to create new memories by doing new things. Do not fall into the routine of doing the same things and going the same places during your leisure time. Be open to new adventures you never know where they can lead you. Plus they make great memories and stories for later years.

4. Love Always, even if you get hurt. No I’m not saying you have to stay with a cheating partner or endure abuse. But when you feel love give it back and if you feel has let you down do not give up on it. Down is not out and the future is full of endless possibilities.

5. Always look you best. On days when you feel down do not dress the part for it will only add to your somber mood. Instead look who you would like to feel and it can brighten up your mood. Plus you never know what the day holds and who you may be regarding business or pleasure.

This Way to ME!

Sometimes a girl has got to get away and get herself together…even the FireFly.

As we grow out personalities evolve and we become new and sometimes even different people. In order to keep up with out every changing sleeves we must continually analysis ourselves and learn about new like, dislikes, added talents and lost abilities.

I like to know myself inside out, and you should seek to do the same. As we change some of it will be for the better but not always. An annual check in with yourself will allow you to identify and correct bad habits and characteristics acquired over the past years. This helps you to be and stay the best you!

Lay the bricks and follow the road but if you loose your way have a checkpoint to guide you back to the you, you want to be!

I’m Back

We all go through things that change us that is a part of life. When life changing events happen the key is to remain positive and focus on a future because it is filled with endless possibilities. No matter what happens in life there is a purpose for every action even if you do not understand it while you are going through it. However, sometimes you need a time-out to regroup and refocus to be able to move forward fresh and with a renewed outlook on life. From time to time we all slip into another dimension and it can often turn into a dark place but getting to the light at the end of the tunnel is most important. Stay focused and positive and a little encouragement along the way never hurt.

Evolution of a Culture

Wale said it best TV killed the radio and then the internet slit the television throat.

So if those did all of that, what did the cell phone do and more recently the smart phone?

I read somewhere that “Gadgets somehow makes everything go faster as if life weren’t going fast enough” and to me that is what smart phones did and continue to do…at least for me they made information more convient but isolated the population.

As I sit here typing this post on my cell phone I am a product of my generation.

Good that I am advanced in technology and bad that I am ignoring the person sitting next to me.

Who we are and where we are going as a result of this cultural evolution no one knows. Yes there has been much speculation that technology is hurting us more than it is helping up but who really knows. Maybe we should find our way back to the basics, just in case. Give me a pen and a piece of paper and I will write…write a love letter…not a text, email or fax. Because computers can crash and phones can be stolen but a physical declaration of can be preserved and kept forever.

Spring Cleaning


April is the month of great weather and beautiful blooms in most cities. After being snowed in most of the winter it is only right to want to get out into the sun and enjoy yourself and I encourage you to do so. However, all of those months being cooped up in the house have probably made your house junky and cluttered. Not to mention the aftermath of the holidays, travel and out of town guest.

Get your life together for the spring and summer and do a little cleaning. No matter what you do or where you getaway to when you come home you should feel just as great as the weather.

Clutter of your personal space bring clutter of your mental space.  Start with the physical and it will influence the mental. No matter where you go there you are!

It is time to clean your life out!

Lets get organized and do a little spring cleaning. Rid yourself of unnecessary items or store items that are no longer in season. Make room for new and improved or clean up what you already have.  Somethings are reminders of times past but sentimental none the less. Free yourself of the emotional reminder of times past and make room for the future to happen.

Buy some new sheets or towels in a fun color to add some brightness to your life. Simple fixes can make a big difference.

But, for every new item your bring in your house take one thing out.
