What’s In a Name?

BrotherWord - What's In a Name

New parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, in complete fashion with their magnanimous ways, named their newborn daughter North West.  As much hype as Blue Ivy received upon her entrance to the world, North West is having a similar impact.  Many have wondered why the name and what the parents were thinking, if they were thinking at all.  North is the first child of both Kardashian and West and sources close to the new parents say the true meaning behind the name has more to do with inspiration rather direction.

Thankful Thursday!

BrotherWord - Thankful Thursday - Life Lessons

Today I am most THANKFUL for life’s lessons.  Life has a way of bringing out the best, and sometimes the worst, in all of us, but either way, it will challenge your every fiber and force you to grow and expand mentally and emotionally.  Every storm is followed by sunshine, and sometimes a beautiful rainbow.  Although it may be hard to find the silver lining during hardships, know that it exists.  Even when you can’t see it or have doubts, hold onto that belief, fight through, and remember this too shall pass.  No different from school, we are tested to see if we have learned and retained the lesson, and such is life.

We have to go through the fire to be purified and polished.  Gold is dull and lackluster until it is put through extreme heat and a diamond is no more than a lump of coal before it is put through extreme pressure.  From both you are rewarded with a rare and valuable jewel, just like life’s lessons.  The things we go through shape us into the people we are and strive to become.  Be THANKFUL for your life lessons as they are a road map to your future and breadcrumbs from where you’ve come.

Life is the greatest teacher and the lessons it offers will carry you through the best and worst days.  So, take it for all it’s worth and enjoy the ride.  THANK you LIFE for blessing me with opportunity after opportunity to share my lessons with all I can reach and learn  from all that I meet.

What are you most THANKFUL for today?  Share your life lessons and moments of THANKS with #BrotherWord.
