Encouraging You

Encouragement is something that must be given, shared, and experienced.  It lets you know that someone believes in you and is supporting your efforts.  If you've never experienced it, it may be hard for you to recognize when someone is giving it to you...similar to love.  If you've never shared it or given it of yourself to others, it's a bit pretentious to assume that someone should do that for you.  Nevertheless, if no one ever  offered it to anyone else, that would break down the cycle.

There is a cycle to everything in life...even life itself.  Life is sustained, supported, and loved by those who participate in living...and by the Creator of life.  At times, we get discouraged or feel a little off kilter.  Those are the times at which it seems we need encouragement the most...but we may not get it.  When you feel this way, it's important that you find something to do or say that helps to encourage you in being who you are and what you do.  Keep your cycle going.

I'm encouraged through encouraging you.

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

A blessing is an advantage, a gift, help, good fortune, and to some, just plain ole good luck.  Whatever your belief, you should know that blessings don't happen due to any doing of your own.  Blessings are advantageous gifts given by God for the sole purpose of enhancing who you are and what's inside you.  Once you receive your blessing your only responsibility is to bless someone else.  Most people don't understand their responsibility in receiving a blessing.

Know that nothing you receive is only for you.  You have a larger responsibility to share what you receive...either through learning, experience, finances, or just love and understanding.  You are someone's link to understanding their own passion, dreams, talents, and gifts.  Fulfill your responsibility of blessing another so they might be able to do the same.  It's a chain effect and a beautiful cycle to be a part of...blessings beget blessings.

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

Life Is Real

Sometimes reality really sucks, but sometimes it's the best.  It's all about your you view things.  How you think/feel is based on how you interpret what goes on around you...your perspective/perception.  Oftentimes, your perspective/perception is shaped & molded by your past instead of your reality, but life is real.

Don't live your life based on how you think things operate.  Learn, explore, discover truths for yourself.  Surround yourself with those who strive for growth.  Gain a true perspective on reality...because you live it.  Life is real and so are the people who live it.  Live it well.

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