My Favorite Quotes of all Time

  1. Everything we do is all about attitude.  Whether positive or negative attitude, it will dictate how you will survive in your life.  If you are optimistic about life and look for the great things in every situation, you will feel good and it will rub off on others.  If you are pessimistic about life and look for things to go wrong all the time, you will be angry and never feel good about things in your life.  Negativity is also contagious, as in the old saying; Misery Loves company.Text_Over_Photo1565291848068[1]
  2. The current state of our country is that we are all about changing the attitude of those who wish to do harm unto the African American community.  Too many senseless deaths and attacks taken against us have caused increased hate among us and in the midst of making changes we have support to take away those things that have been offensive for many years.  Hate and grief may motivate us but love will bind us in unity for the cause.fe1f0dd5c144a7296264cbba392dc87e[1]

3. How you act in private cannot be hidden behind how you act in public and vice-versa.  Everyone needs to let the world see who they really are and stop hiding behind the ideal that people will not except you.  Be polite but be true to yourself.  Set the stage for an authentic show.  Be a great leader.

4. Having all the answers by trying to solve every problem is impossible.  The world we live in comes with good and bad days.  We have to treat everyday as a blessing to be alive and pray on the things that burden our hearts.  quote-god-never-promised-us-a-trouble-free-life-joyce-meyer-19-80-58[1]

5. Life is not promised from day to day.  Live it up and don’t think that you are not important. Whether you are having a good or bad day, don’t be afraid to take time for yourself.  Wake up everyday with a smile on your face and ask what can I do to make someone else’s day.  Smiles are contagious as is laughter….very powerful tools: Use them.

My favorite quote by Maya Angelou

So, as you can see, a big difference in my life this past 8 months since I retired. I love the freedom of coming and going as I please and having a great support system in my family. I knew I had to make a change because I wasn’t happy making others dreams come true.

That’s all I got for you until tomorrow …stay tuned for Day 16 and don’t forget to:

My favorite quote comes from one of the most beautiful, smart and talented educator and poets of all time. Maya Angelou believed in being true to yourself and seeing others the same way. She said that people tend to hide behind failures and things that are displeasing but in life she believed success came with growth and learning from what you didn’t succeed in.

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” -Maya Angelou

I love this quote because it sets the foundation on how people need to live their lives in order to be satisfied with themselves. Most people don’t realize that most of the complaining they do is a waste of fresh air and can be solved by just focusing on something different and changing the circumstances for which they are unhappy with. I think of this quote everyday as a mom and wife who is looking for growth within myself. I know that my happiness is no one’s job, for I am in charge of my own destiny and path along with God and if there is something I do not like I have the power to change it. You also have this ability too. Have you ever wondered why people can solve one problem but not others. Most people are used to being comfortable with what their circumstance is and they are afraid of the unknown or being a different person. Maya Angelou promoted self-growth, change and progress…life goes on.

That’s all I have for today…don’t forget…
