Stop Letting The Box of Mass Distraction Govern Your Life

This message is to all the people that drown themselves in sorrow because they want to live the lives of another. Please stop sitting down in front of the idiot box (television) feeling sorry for yourself. Stop watching how other folk’s lives are better than yours. I beg of you to push away from the box of mass distraction so you can stop beating yourself up. The people on television represent a very small portion of the world and many of the things that happen Continue reading →

Don’t Settle For A Temp Relationship When You Can Have A Permanent One

Needle In A Haystack Finding permanent love at a temporary service is like “finding a needle in a haystack”. Stop going through life trying to fill the “so-called void” in your life with someone you know from the very beginning is temporary. Many of us know from the first date if we are interested in pursuing a relationship with someone or not. As soon as one figures this out, they should not make decisions for the other person by dragging on a relationship they do not Continue reading →

Be THANKFUL for the IRON in your life

  Proverbs: 27:17 “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend”. Be thankful for the family member(s) or friend(s) that has been the iron in your life. Be thankful for the family member(s) or friend(s) that has kept you sharp. There are many that will go through life never acknowledging the iron in their life until it is too late. Don’t wait until the 11th hour to give THANKS and APPRECIATION to those in your life that keep you sharp. You never Continue reading →

April Sims Quote: Don’t Let Fear of the Word No Stop You

Diamond In The Rough? I’m sure you’ve heard the old adage “diamond in the rough“. With that said, I would like to pose this question to you, “Are you are diamond in the rough or the rough the diamond is in?” Natural diamonds are created under extreme pressure and heat. It takes thousands of years under this pressure for beautiful diamonds to be formed. Of course, you will not be around long enough to endure thousands of years of extreme heat and extreme pressure.

April Sims Quote: Step To The Side and Get Out Your Way

There comes a time in one’s life when you have to forgive yourself, then step aside and get out the way of your progress. Standing in the door of success will not make you successful. You have to go through the door in order to achieve success. Don’t let others pass you by. ~ www.aprilsims.com

Expose Yourself To Greatness I remember when I was a little girl and one of the neighborhood children came down with chickenpox. Word spread like wild fire up and down our block. All the parents made sure they exposed their children to this child in hopes their children would contract chickenpox to get it over and done with. The same goes for greatness. Put yourself in a position to be exposed to greatness. Surround yourself with those that are on your level or higher and Continue reading →

You Gonna Make Her Love Somebody Else

This blog was inspired from one line, “told me a lie and didn’t have an alibi”, from Jocelyn Brown’s song entitled “Somebody Else’s Guy”. Don’t make relationship decisions for other people. If you are in a relationship tell the potential other woman that you are in relationship. Then let her decide if she wants to be the other woman. Some women might be comfortable with being the other woman, however the lies come in when a man wants to enter into an extra relationship with Continue reading →
