I CAN FEEL THE WINDS IN MY LIFE ABOUT TO CHANGE. I CAN FEEL THE FLOORS BENEATH MY FEET ABOUT TO SHIFT IN ANOTHER DIRECTION.
All I do is breathe, pray, stand strong in my faith and try to remember that all things happen for a reason and there’s a lessen in every storm. Knowing this, doesn’t make it easy. Storms are not always easy to bear.
Leaders/Managers/Bosses/Owner: The head of a chain is only as strong as the links that are connected to it. When there is a weak link, you are not a good leader. The people that follow you, represent you or your company/group/business. When you allow people to mistreat others that are under you command, what does this say about the person you are?
From My Heart: What happen to Character, Integrity, Moral, Value and the Christian Way. It’s not all about money and people are not expendable. Good Leaders are hard to fine. A Leader is wise, smart but never too smart to learn. A Leader is compassionate, yet firm, honest and fair, watchful and merciful yet filled with tough love; patient because people learn differently and follow at a different pace. A Leader is a part from men, a woman a part from women. They aren’t afraid to stand alone and hold their own and stand for what they believe. A Leader protects in wisdom, serve in love and thinks before they speak, direct or demand. A True Leader, leads in knowledge, humbleness, strength and prays about all things. But most, find it easier to follow in the footsteps of fools.
Poetry -Leade Me
I let you lead me to the pits of hell I’m burned to the core of my soul You lead me to my death, my body wants to breathe no more I let you lead me to an empty place of no return, into pity and shame and I can’t find my self-worth I let you lead me through a pile of crap and I can’t get the smell off me or out of my memory.
But under your leadership, you lead me to myself: I chose to follow, so, in that, I learned from my mistakes And I choose to accept responsibility for trusting you to lead In you leading me to my death, you lead me to my own life.
I tried to control you in us, for us. I tried to control what I didn’t understand. I tried to control what I was afraid of, losing you. You were the bird that stood in the palm of my hands. I held your feet to keep you from flying away from me, from us. I tried to be the god over us and take us in my own hands. I tried to control our future and our love. I tried to breathe and think for the both of us. You were all I saw, felt and thought about I couldn’t see me; I couldn’t see life without you, without us. I tried to secure what we shared by controlling our everyday. I tried to think for you and make the right decisions for us. I tried to control us because I was afraid of losing you I controlled you right out my life.
Be Still: In most of our lives, Being Still is not an option: We start our day stressful; work 2 or 3 jobs; work with people that get on your nerves all day long; we take care of family; be there for friends; help strangers; provide for those that are less fortunate; adjust our lives ups and down; hustle to stay afloat; try to find ways to beat the system; try to find loop-holes to get rich; try to make the best out of being where we are in life; raise children the best we can; try to be someone we’re not in order to stay in the game; spreading ourselves thin for the cause.
From My Heart: Some of us never stop to breathe or notice the beautiful things around us; or stop to think of a better way or different way of doing things; or stop to think about how and what we do affect others; or stop to evaluate our situation and make a positive and healthy change; or stop focusing on the wrong things and get our own lives together; or stop getting so wrapped up in drama and try make a different in people’s lives. Be still. Be quite. Sit down in a comfortable/peaceful place and breath. Listen to relaxing music. Learn to rest your mind. Hide from your busy life. Take your watch off and turn the clocks off in the house and clear your schedule. Put the crazy and needy people on hold for a couple of days. Take time to admire things that you never notice before. Take a walk in the park. Sit still and look at a window. Do things that you use to enjoy doing (painting, music, drawing, etc….
Find some peace or something that makes you happy; find things to do alone and enjoy being with yourself. Give your mind and body a rest from YOU. Be still and give God some of your time and take time to listen more than you talk. Learn to let go and let God be God.
Anger- a bottomless pit of hurt; Anger is like the root of a tree planted in the deepest part of the ocean. Anger is an emotional state of mind that clouds your judgment and views. The result of Anger: murder, lost, damages, destruction, jail time or regret. It silently affects/destroy your health (high blood pressure, stroke, stomach problem, breathing problems, depression, fatigue and problems sleeping). Anger affects your day, your work, friendships, relationships and marriages. Anger affects the world and how we treat other people and animals.
Life Lessons in Rehab: When someone makes you angry, they have control over you. When someone finds pleasure in making you miserable, they have control over you. In your moment of anger; Stop, breathe, listen, think and speak calmly and don’t give fools the satisfaction of seeing you angry, confused or hurt. Anger hardens the heart and turns the soul cold. The Spirit of Anger has no mercy. The deeper the anger the harder it is to forgive. Forgiveness lightens the heart, heals your body, gives you peace within and allows you to breathe. Being angry with God is foolish. Everything that God allow to happen is based on your decision (free will) and His plan and purpose for your life and others. Everything works together, comes together in God’s time. God’s time is not our time. God’s wisdom is deeper that our thoughts.
