Thinking isn't all it's cracked up to be. 

Thinking can birth some of the best strategies and some of life's best road maps.  On the other hand, thinking can bring to light some of the craziest paranoia known to man.  When your thinking is at its best, you benefit the most from reflection and meditation.  When your thinking is in overtime you become a pawn in your own hand-crafted game...and don't even realize it.

At times, thinking will push you to believe and create things that don't exist in the way you've begun to perceive them.  It's like daydreaming and believing your a not-so-happy way.  This can also happen to you in someone else's thoughts.  Just because someone doesn't know, doesn't mean he/she can't think.  You can become the subject of some one's thoughts just as easy as you can say your own name...

Don't trust merely your thoughts.  Seek truth in all things.  Never place your trust in people.  Trust only the truth that's placed in your heart.  When in doubt...pray.

Thinking isn't all it's cracked up to be; but trusting and believing in your heart is all you need. 

It's beautiful to be you...trusting, praying, believing...simply beautiful.

A pimp is defined as one (usually a man) who solicits for a prostitute and lives on the earnings; one who procures sexual gratification for another; or one who exploits others for personal gain.  A pimp can be represented in many ways.  If you use any other person for your own personal gain - either against their will or without their knowledge - you're a pimp!  If you choose not to educate someone for the sole purpose of benefiting from their ignorance - you're a pimp!  If you only seemingly put others in the forefront so you can get the glory - you're a pimp! 

The saying is "Pimpin' ain't easy."  In the long run, it's easier to learn to stand on your own two feet than it is to pimp someone else for what you need...put in some real work.  I've seen children pimped daily because their parents choose not to stand up for them or themselves.  Children are the strongest and weakest part of our society.  They are beginning to grow weaker in mind due to ignorance.  Nevertheless, they continue to grow stronger in spirit due to someone or something that has given them hope.

Give hope, don't destroy it.  Be an example of strength, discipline, and tenacity...not weakness, waywardness, and indifference.  Don't misunderstand and think that only prostitutes and children get happens to unlearned individuals all the time.   Educate yourself and those around you.  Achieve success and share it.

I'd Love To

I'd love to cuddle with you late and wake to you early. 
I'd love to feel you kiss my cheek each morning before work.
I'd love to walk in the park with you at dusk.
I'd love to smell you as I go from place to place.
I'd love to see you coming my way...excited and giggling like a girl.

Winter, sweetheart, I am patiently awaiting your arrival.  Your sister Autumn will have me well prepared and ready to see you shortly!

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

Not Sure About This

I'd love to say that everytime I help someone in some way that it feels good inside...and it does.  But I can not neglect the fact that seeing someone saddened because our time together has passed also saddens me.  I love to help others...when I can't, it bothers me.

It would be ideal to be able to ensure the safety and happiness of each and every friend or loved one; but it's impossible.  As happy as it might make the world...helping everybody isn't the way things go.  This doesn't mean in any way that happiness can't exist for or I just can't create it for everyone.  Today, I helped to create happiness for someone.  As soon as our time together was over, saddness was soon to follow.  At this point I had to remember my boundaries and the reason they exist in the first place.

Did I like having to admit that I couldn't maintain the happy feelings I'd helped to create?  No.  Did I like seeing the happiness suddenly fade away?  No.  Did I understand why I needed to understand my boundaries?  I wasn't sure at first, but yes.  Boundaries help us maintain balance so we don't get burned out helping everyone.  Boundaries help us to remember that we can't do everything for everybody

So Happy?

Sometimes we can experience pain or discomfort for a short amount of time, yet it feels as if we've been hurting forever.  Likewise, we can be healed of wounds, pain, and discomfort; yet forget what the extent of the pain or discomfort was.  Each time healing occurs there's some relief...some happiness that the pain and discomfort is now gone.  However, if you get happy and go back to the same ole activity again before completely healing...the pain will undoubtedly return.  Don't get so happy so soon and forget your lesson.

Be wise in your actions...before, during, and after your pain.  There will be times of sadness, discomfort, and situations that try you.  Remember the not-so-good times.  Remember what happened before the the not-so-good times came along...your experiences once they begin to affect you and the results of what took place.  Never get so happy that you become oblivious to the trials of your life. 

Remember where you came from and the bumps along the way to get you where you are.  Don't become so happy that you walk right into the same bad situation simply because you didn't pay attention.  Live and learn...and remember.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

Business has a life and character all its own.  If you allow it to, it can and will overwhelm and consume you.  You must discover your own personal balance and what it takes to maintain it.  We all have some kind of business to tend to or conduct...and it's all important to each respective mogul.  Maintin control of yourself, be strategic and smart, yet sensible in your decision-making...  Handle your business, don't let your business handle you.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

The mind is a very powerful tool.  When used properly, you can experience the highest levels of success.  You can strategize, organize, and manipulate the world around you to get the best possible result for your situation.  On the other hand, your mind does not support you experiencing the highest levels of love.  The mind is almost always at war with the part of you that fights for love...your heart.

Your mind operates based on tangibles...things you can touch, see, manipulate, and evaluate.  With the right evidence, your mind can be changed or swayed.  It's such a powerful tool that it can keep you from living out your dreams due to fear of the unknown and the lack of more information.  Thinking too much, being overly analytical, or not relying on your heart can cause great pain...although it may not always be physical.  It is imperative that the heart and mind become aligned and in tune with one another so that they might operate in harmony. 

A harmonious relationship between your heart and mind takes time, discipline, practice, transparency, and willingness.  You must learn and re-learn yourself, your fears, your weaknesses, your strengths, your desires, your reality...and be willing to work toward change within yourself.  This harmony can be achieved; however, it is something that must be achieved daily.  Therefore, there is always an ongoing struggle...  Are you up for it?

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.
