I believe God has a path for me. He's always had a path for me, and I've always been in the right place at the right time - not because of my efforts, but because of my preparation and because of the guides that I have, the mentors that I have, the spiritual walkers that I've had all my life. Judith Jamison 1. Avoid feeling overwhelmed by other people's goals. There are many podcasts and videos of others talking about their objectives for 2022.

  “It’s easy to judge. It’s more difficult to understand. Understanding requires compassion, patience, and a willingness to believe that good hearts sometimes choose poor methods. Through judging, we separate. Through understanding, we grow.” ~Doe Zantamata  One morning on my way to school, I had a terrible fall.  My knees were badly bruised and I began to cry. A sweet lady took me up from the asphalt, carried me to her house, and she dressed my knees. It has been over twenty years, and I haven't forgotten how good she was to me that morning. I can still hear her consoling me as she gently nursed my wounds. The moral of the story is, people will always remember how you made them feel.  Sometimes it's the little things that we do that occupy the biggest part of people's lives. It could be that you gave someone a glass of water to cool their thirst. Or a word of advice when life had them at rock bottom. The little things that seemed insignificant to you, meant the world for s

  “Our way is not soft grass; it’s a mountain path with lots of rocks. But it goes upwards, forward, toward the sun.” Ruth Westheimer Reach out to me if you need anything! How often have you heard that?  Many times people speak boldly about what they would do for us. But they don't always come through when they're needed most.     Presence doesn't mean that someone is available. Having people around doesn't mean that we're not alone. You could be seeing someone every day, yet they're still emotionally absent from your life.  There are times when life takes us through the motions. There are moments when we need someone to connect with on an emotional level. Those trying times when our backs are against the wall, wondering where to turn and who to turn to.

  What do I do when nothing is going right in my life? We all have big plans for our lives, but life doesn't always go according to our plans. Oftentimes, we believe that we have it all figured out; until life throws a curveball and it shatters our plans.  How do you pull yourself together when life has given you a big shocker?  I often pray in moments of great despair. God is my strength! Always keep prayer at the top of your list through the good and bad times.  Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:6 “Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.” ―  Mahatma Gandhi Here are some other things that you can do: 1. Pause and think. Weigh your options carefully. Consider the next move that you're about to make. Is it worth it?  Is it something that

Knowing your self-worth is one of the most important assignments you could ever take on in life. Why? It will set the tone for every interpersonal relationship that you will encounter in life. Employer-employee relationships, friendships, intimate relationships, etc. In life, you have to teach people how they should treat you.  If you should ever fail at doing so.

  “When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” Alexander Graham Bell “Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance, you must keep moving.” Albert Einstein Have you ever sat down and thought to yourself that you should be much further in life at your age?
