Welcome to my page. I am here to motivate and inspire to change the way that you think about yourself and the life that you are living.
I believe that if a person changes the way they think and process how they feel they will be able to live a healthy balanced life.
I am here to motivate and inspire you to open up your mind and take a chance of becoming a better you. You are the only one who is able to metamorphosis yourself from a victim to an overcomer. To make the impossible, possible. But sometimes in order for us to take that first step we need a little push. Check out my blogs below and get inspired. Because being you is the best accomplishment you will ever do! So, wear you like no one else can! And remember You are Beautiful!

We All Have Two Sides
What I am coming to understand is something I always knew, but never really thought that deeply about. Everyone of us has two sides. There is the side of us that loves to do good and the side of us that wants to do bad.
The good side, is the side that always wants to help and be there for others. This good side wants the best for others and is really happy when others succeed in life. The good side of us is always there to listen and lend a helping hand whenever it is needed.
On the other hand, there is that bad side of us. This side doesn’t care about others. This side of us would rather be self seeking and help self rather than help others. The bad side of us is always negative and speaks negative of others. We never have anything nice to say and when we do say something nice we think in our head 10 wrongs things that we wish we should of said instead. We don’t want others to succeed because we feel like if they succeed, there is nothing left for us. This bad side of us will only listen to gossip and we never lend a hand, unless it benefits us in some way. We seek out wicked things instead of good.
The hard part is knowing the difference between the two. More often than not, we want to be the good person, but the urge to be the bad person creeps out. The bad thoughts somehow outweigh the good thoughts and when we want to be the good person, it feels so much better to be the bad person.
This reminds me of the scripture in Romans Chapter 7 that says:
Roman 7: 21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature[d] a slave to the law of sin.
When I find myself in the battle of my mind, warring with what I should do and what I want to do its hard to determine which side I am going to let win. But, we have a decision to make. This is not easy, but with every decision made, we have to be ready to deal with the consequences of that decision. Yes, I may want to handle a situation in a bad way, which may definitely feel good in the moment, but am I really going to be able handle the backlash of my choice? Or do I want to handle it in the good way? Even though I might not like it, but in the long wrong I can handle what comes next because I know that I did the right thing.
In any situation that you come across you are always going to have a few choices on how you can handle it. But whatever your choice, good or bad, make sure that after you have made your choice, it was your choice. Be ready to deal with the outcome no, matter what it might be. Words and action might feel good in the moment. But I remember a quote by May Angelou “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
I hope this helps someone today. Remember you are important and love conquers all.
