Sometimes the hardest thing to do is… START.  You have so many great ideas, but no idea where to begin or how to get the ball rolling.  Don’t let the enormity of the dream deter you from beginning the journey.  Put one foot in the front the other and start moving.  Like a pebble rolling down …

Thankful Thursday!

 BrotherWord - Thankful Thursdays!

Today I’m thankful for the doubters and the naysayers,
For the skeptics and the haters,
For those that said I would never amount to anything or make it.
For those that tried to break me down, but never broke my spirit,
Those who criticized, but couldn’t see I was gifted.
You ridiculed and tried to demoralize,
Never knowing you were helping me grow, contributing to my rise.
Took some lumps and let you think you had won,
But I always knew just like the morning dew, I’d rise like the sun.
So thank you for not believing, thank you for thinking I was defeated,
You fed the fire within and made me reach deeper.
No animosity, no hard feelings, I wish you all the best,
You are my inspiration and why I plan to reach and teach the rest.
You too can overcome, you too can catch your dream,
All you need is faith, perseverance, and belief in one’s self; the perfect team.
Take that first step, keep moving, put one foot in front the other,
The haters will hate, but as long as you keep moving that hate diminishes further.
Be Thankful for it all, the ups and downs, the good and the bad,
The best is yet to come and right now is your launchpad!  ©

Motivational Mondays

Is the dream your chasing worth the price your paying?  If it isn’t empowering, enriching, or energizing your life and those around you, it may be time to reevaluate. The dream is about hope & aspirations and the pursuit should be envigorating and enlightening.    Be inspired, be committed, be persistent, but most important, be mindful of the road …
