Coming Out!!!

October 15, 2018

Everyday as I walked and studied outside, I would see a beautiful butterfly. It would land on me. I was shock at first, but the next day, it came back. It landed on my foot and the third day, it landed on my papers. It stood still and so did I. I looked at it and thought about its journey as a caterpillar. 

The time it spent inside the shell. The process it went thru as it has a transition that is inevitable. Just made me think about  what its like to turn into a butterfly and be free!! I'm turning to a butterfly in my career, finances, relationships, LIFE......to be free of all things that stunt my growth. No more crawling on the ground, its time I got my WINGS in this life!!!

Make Peace!!!

October 26, 2018

Learning to forgive and make peace with things that happened in the past can happen more easily when you take your focus off of the specific events that occurred and instead try to see the perspective of the people involved. Most people don’t act with the intention of directly hurting someone else; generally, they make choices intending to make themselves feel better. 

For better or worse, it is in our nature as human beings to operate from our own self-beneficial perspective and the impact of our actions on others is often a secondary consideration. It doesn’t make it right, but sometimes seeing someone else’s perspective can help you understand the events that unfolded better and make them less personal. 

It can also be easier to forgive someone when you see them as a whole person. If you find yourself stewing in anger over something that someone else did or didn’t do, try to pull back and remember the good qualities you saw in them when you first met, and recognize that we all have flaws and we all make mistakes.
