Be on time.
If it had not been for the Lordt this morning I wouldn’t have been on time to my meeting.
I just get so comfortable with time. Too comfortable. I don’t think there’s a moment when I’m not walking fast or rushing to be somewhere.
Always puts a lot into perspective. When I was laying on my floor today I was feeling tired…emotionally, mentally, and physically.
And I’ve been feeling that way for while. I decided to go running which I haven’t been able to do consistently in about two weeks. While running I felt tired so tired that I felt like I was going to pass out but I told myself I would finish… I’m not stopping or walking.
As I kept encouraging myself I kept moving faster and the feeling I was physically feeling began to dissipate.
That experience made think about my journey through life and even as the semester winds down. Even when you’re tired, you feel like you can’t do it at all just push yourself to do it… Just do it. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it. The mind is so powerful and many of us don’t utilize it in full. We are our own biggest supporters and encouragers. Whatever you tell the mind or say will happen whether it’s bad or good.
Running has always been my biggest form of upliftment next to God. It’s more mental than physical and it soothes your mind, body and your spirit. It’s an incredible form of exercise that can be applied to life.
Mind over body. I can do anything I put my mind to.
I only see one thing in this world that I need. No war coming from me just want the love’s chemistry. Good vibes and inner key is all I feel surrounding. If it’s not on your level then why don’t you just let it be.

I went to high school with died. The eeriest thing is that she posted a couple of days ago about being happy and so thankful.
Being nosy as I am I looked through the comments of people who had written on her wall and she died of an overdose. Through all the pictures, the happy statuses, and explanation of her day to day not once was their mention of an addiction she was battling. I remember her from high school. She was very laid back and relatively nice…we spoke sometimes and even cracked jokes.
Although she wasn’t a friend to me and I did not keep in contact with her, her death does bother me. I can’t explain it…when people that I even sneezed next to die it has an affect on me. Its a life lost. Someone who isn’t here anymore. Its in those moments I realize that I am susceptible to many things of this world but through God’s mercy, grace, and protection I’ve been shielded or directed elsewhere.
I pray her soul is at peace and I pray she is with God.
when you hear about people who you went to school with dying you begin to see life differently and even yourself too.
My cousin got shot a couple days ago and almost died. He’s in stable condition now but it’s just really crazy to think how you can be fine one second and like that gone.
We are young. Yes we are but tomorrow is not promised or guaranteed.
I haven’t spoken to him in years but we follow each other on Facebook and I wrote on his wall…which seems horrible. I hope he gets better.
God has his reasons for everything. I’m always aware but things like this always impact me so hard because it makes you value life more, want to hold on to God more, and appreciate those close even if they wronged you.
You can have it all and still be unhappy. A great career, close relationships, a beautiful spouse and still feel unsatisfied if you don’t learn how to focus on and appreciate the positive experiences in your life.
I’m sure you’re all familiar with the old adage, “Stop and smell the roses”.
read my personal statement for law school and my statement of purpose for graduate school and I am so glad I went to graduate school instead.
Every word on that paper transpired into what is going on now. It’s a beautiful thing. God is real.. God moves.
At the time when I decided to not accept my acceptance into law school I thought I made the biggest mistake but slowly God showed me that I had not.
Sometimes its hard to listen and to hear, but when you hear God listen. I can’t imagine being in law school. My passion for education policy is so deep. I am thrilled to be graduating in a month.
Before graduation! The job I wanted. God is soo good.
I’m so happy. All my hard work has paid off.
This week. Lord help me through it
