Happy New Year

As 2020 winds down, my resolution for the new year is to continue to have “HOPE” despite everything that life throws at me. Hope is a powerful motivator, a life-affirming feeling and a force to be reckon with if properly sent out into the world. Darkness cannot exist without light, so keep that spark of hope alive…have faith that everything will turn out all right. Ignite the eternal optimist within you!

Tis The Season

It’s that time of year where we tend to spread good cheer and give of ourselves to others. Everyone is usually all smiles and in good spirits but 2020 threw a wrench in all our plans. But despite all the chaos that happened, we just need to pause and remember that no matter how bad things get there is light at the end of the tunnel. We just need to have faith and keep hope alive. Hope changes everything! That positive vibe that has a tendency to be prevalent during the holiday season is something we need to carry with us into 2021. The more positivity we can spread, the more hope we can spark in others, the more faith we can sustain will make the rough times bearable. So spread cheer, spread joy this holiday season and keep it going until we can get back to normal.

What Keeps Me Going

When life’s obstacles
put my back against the wall,
what keeps me going…
my family
When challenges arise
and I have nowhere to turn,
what keeps me going…
my friends,
When darkness overcomes me
and there’s no hope in sight,
what keeps me going…
my faith
When the road is long and hard
and I feel like quitting,
what keeps me going…
my confidence
Living every day
is another opportunity
for me
to go for everything
I want and dream of
So never give up
When life brings you down
ask yourself,
“What keeps you going?”

Go Straight

When there is darkness
and stagnation
in front of you…
go straight
When life causes
extreme hardships…
go straight
When trouble
overwhelms you…
go straight
When your path
becomes hazy and unclear…
go straight
When obstacles become
too difficult to manage…
go straight
The course you take
must never waver
Always have faith
and never falter
Forge onwards
to greater heights
so that
your dreams and goals
may come to fruition
and then and only then
will everything turn
out better
If you just…
go straight
