Don't Get Caught by "WHAT-IF"...

"What" and "if" are two of the most used words in the lexicon. But when we put "what" and "if" together, it becomes the adjective "WHAT-IF" which is also a supposition describing an hypothetical scenario.

 But if you're someone who takes life, and everyone around you for granted, the adjective "WHAT-IF" can and will influence you to make a bad decision, that will probably come back to haunt you at some point and time in your life. If you're anything like me, in the sense of the way I live my life. You'll make sure the adjective "WHAT-IT" don't come back to haunt you in the future. You'll make sure you don't get caught by

As we continue to live our lives, evolve and explore on a daily basis. It's up to us as individuals to make sure there never comes a time when we've to use the adjective "WHAT-IT" in a regrettable manner. The adjective "WHAT-IF" is a supposition that may never happen.

Don't make a final decision base on something that might never happen. Take "WHAT-IF" into consideration when you're making a decision, but don't let it drives your decision making. "WHAT-IF" can be hindering, or be very compelling. Either way I think it can and will impact your decision making negatively.  "WHAT-IF" this and that, or such and such happen, or don't happen. To me making a decision base on "WHAT-IF" is like telling someone that you don't know how to make a decision. Prepare for the worse. Always expect the best. Don't get caught by "WHAT-IT."

Doing What Is Right..

At all times we should choose the right way and forget about the wrong way.
Choose only to do what is right, and forget about doing what is wrong.
Right is always right, and wrong is always wrong!
You can only be right, when you're right!
Whenever you're wrong, you're wrong!
And more than likely, when we're wrong, there will be consequences that follows.
Consequences that we won't like.

BOUNDARIES: Why I Think we need to have them..

There was a study that said: More marriages fail because of poor boundaries, more than any other reason. I know that's hard for some of us to believe, but who knows, that's what the study said, and I'm starting to think that it might be true.

When two people get married and become one, on the biggest day of their lives, their wedding day, they don't lose their individual identity. Each individual is taking on new responsibilities, and is participating in a relationship, but they still have their own individual identity.

This is why I think boundaries can be a good thing. Boundaries comes in many forms. And we should have them. Not necessarily to limit ourselves, but to protect our personhood. Boundaries helps us to GUARD our HEART with DILIGENCE. We need to keep things that will nurture us, inside our mental state of mind, and the things that will harm us outside.

I think where boundaries can become confusing and problematic in a relationship, is in the element of personhood.  The problem arises when one trespasses on the other spouse's personhood. When one crosses the line and try to control the feelings, the behavior, the attitude, the values and choices of their significant other. In my opinion, those are things only each individual can and should control. For a spouse to try and control those things, it violates the other spouse's boundaries and ultimately it becomes a major problem in their relationship. Our relationship with our spouse, or any other successful relationship is base on trust, and on freedom, to some extent. Feelings is one of the most important elements that promotes intimacy in a relationship. Each individual has to control their own feelings.

You can create good protective boundaries with your words. The basic boundary word is NO! When used directly it will let others know that you exist apart from them, and that you're in control of yourself. If you believe in GOD you've a spiritual boundary. Spiritual boundaries are just as real, but harder to see. Your personal boundary is your personhood. Your skin, and my skin, is the physical boundary of our body. Don't let anyone or anything breaks it! Don't accept mental or verbal abuse! Don't let anyone trespass on the BOUNDARIES of your personhood. Protect yourself at all times!

Can we Learn anything from a Road Block?

In our day to day adventure of pursuing our dreams with passion and vigor. There are many times when we come face to face with a road block. A road block isn't necessarily something bad. Sometimes a road block should be seen as a good thing. There are times when a road block is telling us that there is an easier way to do what we're trying to do. At times if it wasn't for a road block we wouldn't change direction or take another route to get to the place in life that we want to reach.

Whenever a road block pops up in your life unexpectedly. Instead of upsetting yourself, take a deep breath and ask yourself. What is my next best option? Maybe your next best option was your best option in the first place, but you didn't take a close enough look at it. A road block can be seen as a curve ball thrown your way by the forces of nature, in her own unusual way, in order to get your attention and force you to take a look at another option. An option that is probably best for you.

In your daily vigorous pursuit for what life has to offer. No matter how large a road block you may encounter on your pursuit. If you can't clear it out of your way. Don't sit around and wait for it to clear. Try your best to find out if it is trying to tell you something and what is it trying to tell you. The forces of nature might be trying to tell you that there's a better and easier way for you to get the job done.

Taking Advantage..

Instead of taking ADVANTAGE of people's weaknesses.
Why don't we point out to them, what their weaknesses are?
In pointing out to them what their weaknesses are.
 Maybe it will help them to overcome their weaknesses.
Taking ADVANTAGE of other human-beings, doesn't 
make you a good person!

Health and Happiness goes Hand in Hand...

Happiness is the key to life! Good Health is big part of the foundation of happiness. But that doesn't necessarily  mean because you're healthy you're happy. Many of us is as healthy as we can possibly be, but we're not as happy as a lark. Although many of us is as healthy as possible, we are not as happy as we should, because we're always chasing after the things that drives us crazy and contributes to our unhappiness. We can't be doing the things that drives us crazy and expect to be happy. Instead of chasing, and doing things that is going to make us unhappy. We should be much more appreciative of the things that we've in our life that makes us happy.

Initially, some of the things that you've done, that contributed to your unhappiness, you probably thought at that time it would be good for you. But after you saw how disruptive those thing were, you should have quickly stop doing them and try your best to do something positive. Finding ways to do positive things in your life will improve your health and state of happiness. And also fill your life with enrichment.

If the things you're doing in your life is making you happy, there's no need for you to abandon them. But that don't mean you can't incorporate other positive things into your life style that will enhance the things you're already doing, which will make you even much more happier than you already are.

Eating right and exercising regularly is two of the most positive aspects of self preservation you could ever practice!  Practicing those two things will help you with you mental and physical health, which inturn will help you with your state of happiness. Happiness is a positive emotion that will help you with your mental and physical health. So! From my perspective, HEALTH and HAPPINESS goes hand in hand. HAPPINESS improves you HEALTH. Your HEALTH embellishes your state of HAPPINESS. Happiness comes from within! Your health and happiness begins with you! No one can make you happy, but you! No matter how hard someone else try to make you happy. If you're not happy with yourself, It's more than likely they won't be able to make you happy!

Back to Back Big Wins For Mr. Romney..

Because of his stunning decisive victory in the Florida Republican Primary, and his big win in the Nevada Caucuses. The Republican Presidential Nomination is Mr. Romney's to lose. Unless something unthinkable happens, Mr. Romney is going to win the Republican Presidential Primary. Nothing is guaranteed in life, but death and taxes.And as Topsy-Turvy  as this Republican Presidential Primary is, we should never say never. But I can't fathom any scenario in which I can see him loosing.

Although a lot of Mr. Romney's political base isn't one hundred percent in love with him, the majority of them sees him as the candidate  with the best chance to defeat President Obama in the General Election. Can Mr. Romney beat President Obama? At this time it's too early to tell.

Mr. Romney and his political team obviously went back to the drawing board. They hammered Mr. Gingrich in the Florida with hard hitting negative advertisement like their lives depended on it. Mr. Gingrich was very badly wounded and politically damaged by Mr. Romney and his team. Mr. Gingrich is so badly damaged, I don't think he will be able to recover from his political wounds within seven months, the remaining time left in the Republican Presidential Primary. Mr. Gingrich was battered and his ego was very badly bruised!

While he was campaigning in Florida Mr. Romney showed us that he knows how to fight. And Mr. Gingrich showed us that he can dish it out, but he can't take a political punch. Mr. Gingrich went from a triumphant character in South Carolina, to a cry baby in Florida. As a matter of fact. Mr. Gingrich was so bitter after he lost in Florida, he didn't bother to call Mr. Romney and give him the courtesy congratulation that most politicians give to the winning opponent after they loss. It now seems as if Mr. Gingrich is going to do any and everything possible, to make Mr. Romney's political life as miserable as possible for the next seven months. It should be a lot of fun to watch.

The Most Inspiring Young Woman of 2012!

The Most Inspiring Young Woman of 2012!

by Impower You By Leah Oviedo.
I met Jaz Gray online when she was hosting a pajama drive for children with long stays in the hospital and also children at homeless shelters. At the time she was still in High School. What I didn't know about Jaz at first is that she has AVM, Arteriovenous Malformation.  Now she has graduated from college and is making a documentary about AVM. One that will have you cheering and crying at the same time.
More Than Skin Deep documents the lives and the research being done about AVM. This life threatening birth defect affects hundreds of thousand of people around the world. It causes health problems ranging from disfigurement to death. Jaz herself has undergone 32 surgeries to stay alive. She is not afraid to share her story and show her face to millions of people. Just the opposite, she has a strength that is most often only seen in people who have suffered the most. Aside from the dangers of AVM, there is also the obvious differences that you see when you first meet Jaz. Her face doesn't look like you'd expect from a vibrant, happy compassionate young woman. In a society that is so obsessed with outer beauty it can be terribly hard to look different. Despite the unacceptable judgments from others Jaz is determined to live her life with pride, beauty and compassion.
As a recent college graduate, she cannot afford to produce this documentary alone so she and her wonderful team are raising funds on Indie Go Go, a social fundraising website.   Every "donation" is accompanied with a prize. There are two easy ways you can help, give a donation and spread the word.
Visit the Indie Go Go Campaign Page and use the share buttons to help her story travel to all the right people. Send an email and introduce this amazing person to your family and friends. Or if possible consider donating $ to her campaign. There are amazing incentives like autographed posters, film credits and ebooks.
I personally funded $5 for her campaign because I know nothing will stop Jaz from following through on her dreams.   Please share this post on every social site you belong to.
Jaz is also a part of our 500 Blog-Raiser Challenge.  Check out her post here:
