One of the hardest things for me to do is look somebody in the eyes and say no.
Especially when they are in need and need help. Especially when nobody else will help them and they have nobody else to turn to.
I want to help everybody in this world. I have a heart. I care. I love people.
I am only one person. I have limited resources. I have limited time and money.
No matter how bad we want to and how hard we try, we will never be able to help everybody and save everybody.
I’m out here trying to survive and live, too.
As much as it hurts and as bad as it feels, all we can do is try our best to help as many people as we can and give it our all.
Everybody chip in. Do your part. Carry some weight. Everybody help one person. Together we can help a lot of people and save a lot of people.
Being emotionally charged means we care and we’re passionate.
Capture the energy. Bottle it up. Put it to good use. It’s fuel and motivation. Don’t waste it.
Channel our emotions and energy into something constructive and positive. Use them to drive change.
Remember to control our emotions and not let them control us.
We are human beings first, professionals second.
Sometimes professionals come off as inauthentic.
They talk over our heads, use big words we don’t understand, and try to sound smarter than us, better than us, and above us.
I want to talk with a down-to-earth human who doesn’t try too hard.
You don’t have to show me how much you know. Let your professional skills do the talking.
Remember, we are human beings first, professionals second. Let’s first connect as equals. Let’s first talk as humans. If that goes well, the rest will take care of itself.
We can try to live in the past, or we can live in the present day.
Let go of what was and embrace what is.
Times change. Keep up, or get left behind.
Accept today as it is, not as you wish it was.
Be a puller, not a pusher.
Pull people together, don’t push them apart.
Whether you hug me or punch me, I still love you.
If you try to hurt me, I will stick up for myself and protect myself, but I still love you.
I’m full of love no matter what. I have love for you no matter what. I’m all love.
Love all. Love everybody. No exceptions. Just love.
The black man in the photo is my sister’s fiancé.
He would do anything for my sister and my family. He already has.
He has stuck up for us and protected us. He has loved my family and taken care of us.
He would be there for us any place, any time, any where. He would give his shirt of off his back. He’s kind, respectful, soft-spoken, and gentle.
He is family. We love him and care about him.
Give others a chance. Get to know them. You just may find family and love.
By the end of the day, we’re tired.
We may get tied up at work.
We may go to dinner or happy hour.
We may be busy and have other commitments, obligations, and responsibilities.
That’s why I believe in working out first thing in the morning.
My health and fitness are priorities. My workouts are a priority
Priorities come first. I do what’s most important to me first. I do what matters to me first.
I am a priority. My life is a priority. Everybody and everything else can wait.
Do yourself a favor and put first things, first.
Sometimes me must be used, abused, taken advantage of, and walked all over before we learn to stand up for ourselves and stick up for ourselves.
Take a lesson from me. Learn from my mistake.
Set boundaries and protect yourself, and do it sooner rather than later.
Spending more time together can do one of two things:
It can pull us closer together or push us further apart.
