“Love” Looks Like Your Past…

 

Sometimes love is beautiful, but there are times in which love is ugly…  It isn’t a “feel good all the time” type of feeling…  Sometimes it causes us to cry, lose sleep, worry, stress and sometimes causes us to do things we would have never imagined… Love has been known to blind us to the flaws, imperfections, and errors of the one we choose to gift it to…  It has also been known to open our eyes to things we don’t want to see or hear when we gift it to ourselves… Love can feel like a punishment from time to time because it floods our hearts and drown our thoughts, but only you know what love looks like to you…

Love has taken the fall for telling, as well as accepting lies…  It has been used as the reason some choose to stay in situations in which they currently hate…  Love (Click HERE to read more)

Timing Is Everything…

 

Here recently I’ve been approached with the offer of starting my own Radio Show…  As awesome as this would be, I had to turn it down…   Sure I’m a natural talker, love intriguing conversation, have a strong opinion, know some pretty freaking amazing people who would be awesome guest, but right now isn’t the time for me…  Even though I have hopes of evolving into radio, it’s not time to become the person I know God has destined me to be in the future…

You see I’ve learned timing is everything and if you jump into things before it’s the proper time, things don’t always flow as easily…  It seems like the headaches are greater, the struggle is greater and nothing seems to go right…  I’ve also learned with God’s plan for my life, it includes other people and if I jump in too soon and God hasn’t finished His work in their life for the plan for mine, I could potentially miss meeting the person because they aren’t ready to meet me…  It’s like one of those moments when you meet someone and you think “Wow, where were you when I needed you?”; “Where were you six months ago when I was going through…..?”…  Just as God has to prepare me to receive, He has to prepare the divine connection to give…

Some of you want greater and today you’re frustrated because you haven’t received it…  Maybe it’s a promotion on your job; marriage; planting a church; starting a business…  Maybe it’s something others could consider a small thing like a financial breakthrough; past due bills being paid; being (Click HERE to read more)

Focus On What Matters…

 

So you have a CD you believe the world needs to hear???  A MUST READ book filled with tips that could change the world???  A fashion line that transcends fashion??? You’re filled with vision, passion, dreams, but doors are constantly slammed in your face; promises of investment continuously fail, and the people you thought were there to support you have let you down…  Today you’re questioning if you’re on the right path; if releasing the CD, Book; Fashion line was a mistake, and even though quitting isn’t an option, doesn’t mean it hasn’t crossed your mind…

Daily you wake up thinking of how you can be better than the day before…  You plan on how you will get your product in the hands of the right person…  You think of ways to reach the world differently, but some days it seems as though (Click HERE to read more)

The Best Part Of Waking Up..

I’ve never been a coffee drinker, but I love the smell of it. In college, I may or may not have even bought coffee beans as air fresheners. But I digress. There’s something about that smell that signifies an awakening and morning time. I can only imagine what that smell does to coffee drinkers. One lady that I spoke with this week said that her alarm rarely wakes her up, but the smell of coffee brewing (she has an automatic one) does. Folgers was definitely on to something when they came up with the slogan, “The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup”. But what happens when it seems like the best part of waking up is….well, just that?

I’ll be honest. It’s been a blah week for me. Don’t get me wrong, there have been some exceptional things that have happened. But such as life, there have been a few not so great things happen this week as well. This week, when the alarm went off in the morning, I immediately started thinking about various challenges facing me each day. It was almost (Click “HERE” to read more)

Here’s what’s posted today on PeauxeticExpressions.com #ForesightFriday

Yesterday I was having a conversation with a female coworker and friend about expectations of dating. She was recounting a conversation she had with a man the night before. He said that it’s the woman’s role to somehow “trap” the man and his attention to get him to commit to her. She feels like the woman’s job is to bat her eyes, switch her hips or whatever subtle hints to gain the man’s attention or active pursuit. But it’s ultimately up to the man to “trap” her. Although the context of the “trap” was used loosely in their conversation, the gist of the idea is so true. Just like dating, we have to catch those “trapping hints” in every facet of life.

Maybe it is that special woman or man you’ve been wanting for so long. But what about that new job we want? That new business we procrastinate to start up? The chance to further our education? The opportunity for spiritual enhancement? Or even something as simple as the chance to truly relax and enjoy your own company (I know, strange concept….)? Honestly, there are many hints being dropped along the way to capture these desires and make them our own. But are we paying close enough attention? Sometimes we miss the boat to get us to our destination because we’re waiting on the titanic sized cruise ship to wisk us away. For some of us, we realize that as time continues to pass so do our opportunities. It may seem as if everyone around us is getting what they want out of life, except for us. But could it be that we had that same invitation but abruptly declined it?

Chances go round for all of us. The tricky part is we never know when that destined chance will come back again. Or, even more frightening, if it ever will. There are times where we only have one shot and if we miss it then it’s just another “sorry for your bad luck” moment. Nothing in life comes freely and even those things that do have a hidden cost that most people are probably not willing to pay. It is free to be alert though and pay attention to your surroundings to set your “trap” for life. Paying attention has to then be couple with action or it’s useless.

So what opportunities are being thrown your way? Are you letting them wiz by your head without attempting to get them? You may miss the mark at times or not grasp them all at once. But one thing is for sure…..you’ll never “trap” (and keep) what you’re not willing to put in the work for to catch.
