Guidance concerning mental, physical, emotional and spiritual aspects.

    You are where you are and your life is the way it is because you chose it to be.  There are, however, extenuating circumstances beyond reasonable control within a certain percentage of some peoples lives that need help.  Those who do not fall within the extenuating circumstance have no excuse and need to stop making excuses and start being responsible for their own lives and actions in what they have done to themselves and others.  Quit expecting others to clean up the mess that you yourself made and clean it up yourself.  You can always make a change for the better and there is help available where needed.  Ask, Seek, Knock.

    Might I also add that if anyone comes to mind be it past or present, pray for their well being and that they are guided, protected and loved no matter what they have or have not done to or for you aside from praying for yourself, your loved ones, etc.

Words of Wisdom

     The following are some words of wisdom that I find helpful, useful, and  worth saying to myself in my day to day living to help cope with any negativity, uneasiness, unhappiness, etc. aside from the bible and prayer.  Some of them you have already heard.  Repeat to yourself as often as necessary.

     I know that many of you are down and out, hopeless, in despair, poor, broke, broken-hearted, depressed, confused, angry and saying to yourselves that there is something amiss and there has got to be more to the picture. I've been there myself and I'm still working on my pursuit which is never ending. Faith in Almighty God, prayer, hope, charity, patience and belief in oneself so that one is able to attain the desires of ones heart is but a part of the formula.

     Another part of the formula is that you'll have to look at yourself in the mirror and evaluate. You'll then have to go to God Almighty and ask for forgiveness, then forgive yourself and then forgive others. You'll have to start making plans and goals for yourself; small steps can lead to great strides and it's the little things that kill. You'll have to be willing to search, study, take notes and work. You'll have to start taking action and be willing to step outside of the box. You'll have to solve the problem or problems with or without help.

     Solutions are available if one knows where to look or if one asks for help and guidance. You'll have to pray, focus, meditate, think and plan.

     I recommend keeping a journal; it'll help immensely and one will have to realize God isn't some genie where he waves a magic wand and poof things just magically appear or disappear overnight. It requires effort on your part and one should not go through life with tunnel vision. Open your eyes and look around yourself, above yourself, beneath yourself and within yourself.
