Learn To Forgive

I know I have been writing a lot about forgiveness, but it is something that I have taught myself. It is something that I have seen with my own eyes, and felt the weight that stayed with me for so long. I love sharing my story and to give people hope. I love to give advice and maybe one day I help change someone’s views.

Did you know forgiveness lowers blood pressure?

The more you forgive – the more life satisfaction you will have.

Forgiveness is linked to less depression, less back pain, and lowers psychological problems – such as anger and Depression.
Being able to forgive some whole heartedly shows that you can change anger, and can lead to greater spiritual well-being.

Matthew 6:14-15 “For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”

Today, why not write a letter to a friend or family telling them something. It doesn’t have to be about forgiveness it can just be a simple act of love.

Forgiveness isn’t just about the present. Forgiveness can be about your past.
You always have people to help raise you, but it is up to you to repeat your childhood or to learn from it and know how to change.
You can always respect the people for their bad times, and learn how to grow as a person. Just remember the person who treats you bad is just trying to make it through this life too.

Once you truly forgive someone, you will find peace. You will truly understand how much weight you was carrying for so long. You will be able to start to forgive not only others, but yourself.

If you go around looking for the bad in people you will find it. The bible says
Philippians 4:8
“Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent, or praise worthy – think about such things.”

Control your thinking and learn to forgive others instead of being critical. You can choose a new attitude. We all need to redirect our focus, so why not start today.


Thankfulness Through All

We should give thanks to God for everything.
“Give thanks in all circumstances.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18

By giving thanks to God for everything it shows me how much I have been through and has shown me how much God brought in my life because of all the thing I have thanked him for.

By going through my moms divorce I can give thanks to God for showing me how much strength a child needs, or a family needs during such a horrible event. It has shown me how much it takes of a child, how much the child has to grow up, not because of being alone, but having to be there for the parent.

A divorce is more than just the husband and wife. A divorce is something that affects everyone. Now-a-days people take a marriage for granted and if it is not “meant to be” then they just trash it and get another one. Going through such a horrible event I, myself, have seen how much it tears people apart even though they don’t talk about it.
Friends can try to be there for one another, but if a friend has never been through the situation then one can not “relate”.

Going through this event has opened my eyes to what is real and what is not. Giving thanks that I was in that situation that I can help others overcome, and be that listening ear for once I was in their shoes wishing for someone to hear me.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, wish thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
– Philippians 4:6

Be thankful for the rain as it brings out the flowers and makes everything so green.

Starting your day by being thankful can help lighten the load on your heart.

Happy Thankful Thursday!

Five Question Friday

(click the image above ^^ to link up with us)

1. What ringtone do you have on your cell phone?

Click the links below

A bug…

and loosing weight 🙂

3. Paper books or ebooks?
Paper Book PLEASE 🙂

4. If you could have one home upgrade what would it be and why?

5. When was your first serious boyfriend/girlfriend?

When I was in 2nd grade at another school I thought I was head over heels for a boy. He was the quarterback and I was head cheerleader. I even missed him when I switched schools. All in all I would say he wasn’t my “serious” boyfriend, pfftt it was 2nd grade but he was my boyfriend for 2 years before I moved. 🙂 He was a great friend and even helped me when I broke my wrist and I couldn’t fill out my homework.

First serious boyfriend… I would say.. umm Probably Ryan, and we are great friends today. He is a little weird at times, but hey, most friends all are a little weird. If we didn’t have a little weirdness we would all tend to be bored.  haha!

Scenario – Best friend in Car Wreck

Google Image 30 days of Truth is about bringing out the best in yourself. Also, to let people see the “real” you through what you write. For thirty days I will write about myself, I will dig deep and I hope you can start this journey with me. 30 days of Truth; Are you ready!?

Day 21 – (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?

So, you know we have “best” friends that are there for more than others, is this friend my very best friend? What was the fight about? These are the questions I ask myself when I read this question.

1) If this wasn’t really my best friend and the argument was about, let’s just say, her cheating behind my back with my husband, or boyfriend then I wouldn’t no longer care. She hurt me terribly and I wouldn’t know what to do at the time. It would take me time to get over the tragic news she was just arguing with me about. I would let karma do it’s thing, but eventually I might check on her, but it would take time for me to heal first.

2) If it is my best friend then an argument wouldn’t stop me from finding a way to check on her, or go see her. The small things we fuss and fight about, shouldn’t change your friendships with a person. You have to stand up in what you believe in but don’t let it ruin something you have with your friend. Best friends are hard to come by and nothing should stop you to be there for them.

Truth be known if it was my best friend then holding grudges wouldn’t be my option. Things happen for a reason and just maybe this is the reason for me to prove what kind of friend I am to them.

Can’t Live Without

Google Image30 days of Truth is about bringing out the best in yourself. Also, to let people see the “real” you through what you write. For thirty days I will write about myself, I will dig deep and I hope you can start this journey with me. 30 days of Truth; Are you ready!?

Day 15 – Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Ok, so I have been thinking and here is some of things I couldn’t live without:
Phone, Internet, Music, Happiness, Friends
I know the prompt was “something/someone” but I am changing it up to fit me. I couldn’t live without my phone, because how else am I going to reach out to people now-a-days. I call friends and family on a regular basis, or try to at least.
I couldn’t live without the Internet, because it gives me a way to vent out my frustrations, gives me connections to people all around the world, and gives me “virtual friends” who I may never meet.
Music, because it feels the void in my heart when I listen to a song. Music is my let-go point. It is something I can relate to. It can bring me from my darkest days, to add to one of my happiest days. I enjoy my music a lot, which if you have been following me, you would have noticed through my 30 day Music Challenge.
Happiness. I don’t think anyone in this world could live without happiness, do you? I love to see my friends and family happy. I love to see people smiling and laughing. It is part of my nature to extend my happiness to someone, if need be. Sometimes my words don’t come across like they should, and different people read me differently. I will tell you that I will never talk “down” to you. I am usually sarcastic, in a good way, to make you smile, or laugh.

Someone I couldn’t live without, uhm, there is a few that could fit here. My friends, they know who they are (Justin, Ryan, Lisa, Lauren, Crystal, Mom, and all my best friends out there). There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about them. I have went days, or months before without talking to some of these, and I wasn’t myself without them. They know just what to say to bring my hopes up, and they know exactly when to call when I need someone, just as I would do for them. Friends are what makes us today, if we didn’t have friends, the only thing we would have would be ourselves.(I would have said Hubby and Jade, but well I have never really lived without them since they entered my life)

What is it that you couldn’t live without, because you tried living without it?

Here is my opinion on Online Dating. This is not related to looking up people around your neighborhood. I am simply just venting about “Online Dating” of someone who is over 2 hours away, across state, another country, a thousand miles apart, and etc. The type of “online dating” that you cannot see the person when you want to and the computer is the only thing you have to really keep up with communication, other than your phone.

I disagree with “online dating”. I believe you should not put your life on hold for someone you may or may not be able to meet within a few weeks to a month. My reasoning on this is; What if you didn’t date for two months, because you are “dating” someone online, waiting for your other to meet you? You have wasted time away, when the right one could be walking by your door. What if you waited six months, then they finally comes to see you and you’re not attracted to them sexually in person, or they constantly have bad breath, their hands are so rough it is like rubbing sand paper across your skin, or you just have no “spark”?

I have seen my friends date online and I just don’t get it. I can see how it fills the void that you so long desire, or the thought of “love” being there. I can also see how you can give it everything you have and all your emotions be involved with someone who is “connected” to you.

On the other hand, I totally see how some fall in love with someone over “online dating”, your emotions are real, you totally click as a person, and they are here for one another through thick and thin. Believe me; falling in love online is possible, I have seen it. I just don’t believe in wasting your life a way for something that may or may not be there. I do agree that you can be friends with your “online” other and date others as you are not “exclusive” with your online toy till they come to visit you in person, then you can decide where it goes from there.

Don’t shut your possibilities out for someone who you won’t visit or see. Live your life now instead of wishing for tomorrow, but anyway, now you know my thoughts on Online Dating.

Best Friends

What is “Best Friends”?

Best Friends are people who will never hurt, lie, betray, walk away, know your sentences before you even start, know your thoughts before you even say a word, and will sit on endless of days just to talk about nothing for hours on end. They have no limits in your friendship and would go thousand miles just to see you smile.

Best Friends will stand up for you when you are not around and will speak of joy and honesty when you are away. They will wipe your tears of sorrow and of joy. They will call you just to say hi. Best Friends is like having another you, just right around the corner. Someone who inspires you to do better and always gives you the advice you need.

They will never judge you, forsake you, or turn their back on you. So, how many “Best Friends” do you have?
