Stay encouraged…

I just wanted to encourage you on today. Do you ever feel unappreciated? Do you feel like you have gone out of your way to help others and it goes unnoticed? Have you felt like giving up because you do all that you know to be right and it feels as if nothing is working out for you? I have felt like this and it is okay. I just wanted to encourage you on today to never give up. Keep treating people the way you want to be treated and keep doing good. Pray for those that are unhappy and choose to spread negativity instead of being positive and keep moving. If someone has lost their joy, share your smile with them. We all go through difficult times and some more so that others. Just know that every situation is not permanent and God is still in control. Don’t let people and circumstances cause you to loose your joy. Rise above the negative, inspire others, take time every day to meditate daily and before you know it, you get stronger and stronger. Have faith that better is coming. Stay encouraged and enjoy your day.

Self Care is Important

I wanted to remind you and as a reminder to myself (😃) that as we are living our lives and working on our dreams and reaching goals to not forget to take care of yourself. So many times we help our family and others, as we should. But sometimes in all of the helping and just doing our daily routines, we give the best of ourselves away and become exhausted. I encourage you on today if it is not anything but five minutes in the morning or evening to just find a quiet place, take some deep breaths, meditate, listen to music, or start on the book you never took time to read, do one thing working towards what you want to accomplish in life. Whatever you decide to do, just do something that you enjoy. Life is precious and time is valuable. I have learned this more especially during this pandemic. I thank God for all that He has done for me and I pray that he continues to bless you too. I just wanted to encourage you on today. Remember Philippians 4:13 and keep working towards your goals and dreams just don’t forget to take some time for yourself.
