Many people have asked me, especially over the course of the last few months, how I lost so much weight. By the way, the last time I checked, I was down 59 lbs. I have freely told each person who has asked about my weight loss journey, but I don’t think anyone has believed me. I know that we live in a world where people claim to pop pills and lose weight, get bigger butts, and more, but true results come from within. Read more
Whether you know it or not, you have the power of veto over your thoughts. Many people falsely believe that the thoughts that cross their minds belong to them. Some even believe that there is something wrong with them, because negative thoughts seem to come frequently and flood their minds. The truth is that you don’t have to allow any thought to occupy space in your mind, if you don’t want it there.

When good things start to flow into your life, don’t think it strange. This is what your life is supposed to look like. You are supposed to experience the things that you desire. Your life was designed to be great. You began as a seed, and your job is to grow continuously.
Your parents, guardians, caregivers, etc were responsible, only up to a certain point. Now, it’s up to you. If you want to eat junk, you can. If you want to spend all of your free time watching TV, you can. If you want to fade into the background and live simply, you can. If you want to get healthier, read more books, and stand out in your greatness, you can do that too. You decide how much you grow. No one else can do that for you. And if you have decided to grow, and you start to see things happen in your favor, be quick to be grateful about it. Don’t think to yourself, this doesn’t happen to me, so I’m sure it will be short lived, and certainly don’t speak those words out loud.
Enjoy the fruits of your labor. You’ve worked for these moments. If you haven’t started experiencing great things flowing into your life just yet, don’t worry. Your time will soon come. It’s inevitable. When you work toward something, you are always moving forward. Eventually, you have to arrive at your desired destination.
Keep working, and looking in expectation, for your blessings.
Have a wonderful day!
All too often, people talk about how they wish they could do or have (fill in the blank), and they follow up that statement with a negative declaration as to why they can’t. Changing your mind does equal changing your life, but not very many people believe that. Just yesterday, someone told me that she wants to work for herself and make a living off of her art. I grew excited to be connected to another dreamer, but my excitement quickly faded, when she started talking about how the world was set up in opposition of her dream.
