Are you what makes your life boring???

This is a question I continuously ask myself. I’m very outgoing and I love to socialize but once I moved to Atlanta after I graduated… I became very boring.

My face of relentless bordem

If I’m not at work, a church/church related function/meeting or visiting my boyfriend; I’m in my apartment. Alone. 😦

I understand it’s important to have alone time to renew and think but I think I take it a bit far. You can understand if you watch Sex and the City the movie and The Devil Wears Prada every weekend while stuffing your face. (I’m starting to look like Samantha at the baby shower for Baby Rose.)

Even at times when I make plans, I end up falling asleep. Sometimes I wonder if my body’s sabotaging me from having fun. Even tonight, I’m blogging about being the boredom in my own life. Lol. It’s ridiculous!!!

But as I lIve to InspIre, I write these words to remind anyone in the same slump as me to be your own hero. Only you can prevent bordem in your life.

So, take these steps along with me:

1. Get off your bed, out of your chair or off your couch.
2. Put on something jazzy. (Figure flattering and no sweat pants lol)
3. Grab a friend.
4. Go out and have fun.

Let’s take control of our social lives and stop sitting around. There’s plenty of world for us to see but we’ll never see it if we don’t take that first step.

Tell me if you make it out tonight!!!

Happiness isn’t…

Happiness isn’t wishing for more to enter your life, too soon, but it’s appreciating who & what you have in your life now. Happiness is humbly accepting all the blessings, big & small, you receive each day and being thankful for every last one. Happiness is acting as a welcoming host when new opportunities knock at your door; it’s not shutting your heart to what’s unfamiliar because of your apprehension to change.

Always allow happiness into your life.

Why are you Drowning Yourself???

Image

Have you fallen into the deep end of the pool and just as you make your way to the top of the water’s surface you feel a hand submerging your head deeper and deeper? You try to fight but you just can’t overpower the culprit?

You are almost out of breath and out of will to continue the fight. What are you going to do? Here’s some sound advice for this predicament: stop drowning yourself.

It’s true. Most of the time, you are drowning yourself. Your own hand is holding your head down below the water’s surface. You are struggling to fight with yourself to near death while no one else is around.

Why are you drowning yourself?

– Are you afraid of change? Are you scared to move to the next level? Are you afraid to veer from your schedule? Are you scared to ask for help?

You have to realize your own reason.

When life’s storms floods your baby wading pool and the floaties no longer work; it’s time for you to learn how to swim. Don’t drown yourself with the “unplanned.” Allow the “unplanned” to strengthen your senses and swim like you’ve never swam before. You never know your full potential until Murphy’s Law is in full effect.

Otherwise, no one in this world would experience greatness. There would only be the average or the mediocre and everyone else would be sub par. That isn’t what the world needs. The world needs fighters, innovators, pioneers and dreamers willing to live out their dreams.

Life’s storms aren’t here to drown you or cause you to drown yourself. You go through tragedy, tribulations and turmoil to reach triumph! So as the water rises and you find yourself moving closer to the deep end, don’t panic and drown yourself. Take a deep breath and head under to find the “amazing” you’ve never found before. Just remember to come up for a breath of fresh air every so often because you are only human. Not a fish.

If you believe …

If you believe you can change something that means you owe it to yourself to make a valiant attempt at creating that change. If you can’t change it in the end, you must accept that outcome. Yet, you can rest happily because you tried. But if you never even try, you will never be able to accept the regret that rests on your heart.
