~ Today’s Inspired Thought ~

 

I am so so afraid of standing still. I am so afraid of finding myself in the same unsatisfied and unaccomplished place that I feel I am in right now. I don’t want to be in this place next year!

 

“Be not afraid of moving slowly; be afraid of standing still.” is a lifesaver. There are days where I would lose motivation and find myself at a “plateau”. These words have helped empower me to continue moving forward at my own pace. Although my pace is slow due to inconvenient circumstances; each day that I push forward only pushes me one day closer to my goal and so I refuse to stand still.

 

When you don’t hear those words above enough one tends to forget such common sense. The more I see those words, the more the meaning starts to sink in and turns from inspired thought to inspired action.

Reading that success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out has given me so much RELIEF! I feel better to think that I am on the right track moving at the pace that I am in. I do feel that I need to pick up the pace though because my level of urgency has diminished a bit due to emotional adversity. Coming to better understand that the small steps that I am taking will sum up to the success I wish to reach has fueled my passion to achieve!

 

I’ve come to realize with such clearer understanding that mistakes are not meant to make you feel inadequate and unworthy of success.

Mistakes are not opportunities for you to quit.

Mistakes are opportunities for growth and improvement.

In the past, when I made a mistake I would be so quick to respond with harsh words to myself. I didn’t need anyone to discourage me because I was my own worst critic! I got in the way of my own success with such a negative and uninspiring attitude.

It’s time to let go of the thoughts that do not make me strong.

With practice all of these inspiring words will become normal thoughts and normal actions. This is what I aspire to achieve.

Today was such an awesome day watching the talent of our children!

Today was the 1st Annual Talent Contest of our Haitian children in celebration of our Haitian Heritage!

Thanks to our Mayor, May is now recognized as Haitian Heritage Month here in Massachusetts! It was on May 18th 1804 that our Haitian Flag was officially created and throughout this month I’ve attended our Flag Raising Event at the Boston City Hall, our Haitian-American Unity Parade and Youth and Family Enrichment Serveice’s (YOFES) 1st Annual Festival promoting the talent of our children!

It was beautiful and inspiring to see the courage it took for these kids as young as 6 jump on stage dancing, singing, reciting poetry, demonstrating their work of art and more in representation of our history!!

It was so sweet and it was such a great way to educate and inspire pride in their heritage and remind me and my fellow adults of what we need to constantly be proud of.

The American lifestyle can almost make one forget where ones’ culture began; especially if one was born in America and never visited their country…. from stressing over student loans, credit card bills, working over time, hearing of the latest electronic gadgets, etc. one can get so distracted to the point of losing  ones’ identity!

Attending this cultural event has reinforced the  pride in my heritage, has reawakened the definition of who I am and inspired me to take part in raising the bar of advancement in our culture.

Today was such a great day! I feel so refreshed and so excited to get involved in our next events!  🙂

I hope your day was great as well! Thanks for your visit!

Today’s Thank You Game challenge is to thank someone who brings beauty into your life. (http://on.fb.me/ThankYouGame)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I responded by saying on facebook that

I thank my mother and father for giving me life.
My heart continues to beat because they gave birth to me
I still stand because they created and nurtured me to this very moment.
I am 27 years old because I was ONE day old.

I fully acknowledge that I didn’t put myself on this earth…..my parents, my grandparents, my ancestors and God brought me here. So I now do my best to act with gratitude even when days get rough between us…I do my best to respond with gratitude. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Day by day, I have come to realize that I didn’t put myself on this earth…I didn’t give birth to myself and so I have been blessed with life, I was given the gift of life and that is a priceless gift. A gift that I must say thank to my parents every day that I live. Wow…I vow to say thank you to my parents everyday I see them and say “Thank you Daddy, Thank you Mommy, for giving me life. I lived today because of you”

I vow to do this everyday.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I realized that I was so quick to say Thank you that I did not clearly comprehend that today’s game is to  “Thank someone who brings beauty into your life.” Which makes me think “Who brings beauty into my life?”

Who I truly want to thank for the beauty in my life is God.

I thank God for the yellow rays of light that brightens our warm days.

I thank God for the white clouds and blue skies that lift our head up and lifts our spirits.

I thank God for the green grass and sweet scents of colorful flowers that can make us smile.

These are the true beauties in my life that I am grateful for.

“Thank the person you hurt because they have given you a conscious.” – Deepak Chopra

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wow….have you done something to hurt a person but have no way to reach and apologize to that person? And the guilt is just eating you up inside??

Deepak Chopra says to “Thank the person because they have given you a conscious” A conscious you can now use to prevent yourself from hurting others like you have hurt that person.

Your lesson has been taught through him/her coming in and out of your life and so clear yourself of the guilt of not being able to apologize to him/her in person and honor the lesson learned by preventing the infliction of this pain from happening again.

– “At times I wish I could hurry up and get to the good part…I want to see what it is going to look like…I just want to hurry up and get there….I have to fight the urge not to dream, but do…There needs to be a balance of dreaming and doing, if I am going to push forward and go. But I do have some issues that if I let them will either drive me crazy or stop me in my tracks.” – GoodGirlGo*

-” Beauty in this world is as misconceptualized as the thought of America
“They prettiest people do the ugliest things”

Because standards were set high before self confidence even began” -Excerpt from the Poem “Beautiful” – ©Aaron Owens 2012**

I discovered GoneGirlGo and Aaron Owen’s inspiring words in Endless Dreams Foundations’ Community Corner and HOW inspired I was; to read and relate to their words!

Reading…

“”At times I wish I could hurry up and get to the good part…I want to see what it is going to look like…I just want to hurry up and get there….I have to fight the urge not to dream, but do…There needs to be a balance of dreaming and doing, if I am going to push forward and go. But I do have some issues that if I let them will either drive me crazy or stop me in my tracks.”
– GoodGirlGo*

has inspired NEW perspective between reflecting on the visions I wish to accomplish and actually taking action to achieve them! It is so true that there needs to be a balance of both in order to push forward. Too much Dreaming can hinder your ability to Act…To much Action can distract you from your true Vision. She has inspired the thought that Your Vision Leads Your Steps, Your Steps Achieve your Vision. And I am empowered to practice what she preached!

She also inspired such exciting empowering thought that – The day will come! All successes comes from a collection of accomplishments achieved one day at a time! –

I am on the mission to accomplish a collection of success one day at a time which will manifest GREAT ACHIEVEMENT!

So Inspired!

-Excerpt from the Poem “Beautiful” – ©Aaron Owens 2012**

“Because standards were set high before self confidence even began…….”

Yes Yes Yes! Can you see the truth in those words?!

I was one to fall victim to such poor standards.
Victim to who had the cutest hair style; who had the most popular brand of clothes and shoes; who attracted the most friends and the cutest boyfriend and girlfriend.

There was no time to think of self-confidence when such poor standards overpowered my thoughts more so then the little self confidence I tried to practice at home.

And how ironic is to encounter a number of men and women of superficial beauty which only covers a soul of ego, selfishness, entitlement, indifference, and greediness.

These characteristics are not holy and will not receive blessings from God. So I work hard to “stifle” any influences that will encourage those characteristics!
