happiness.

The foundation of our happiness is to have a positive sense of self-value. This also guarantee success within ourselves. When we doubt ourselves and allow people to treat us less than our value, we become worthless. Regardless the level of your esteem and security, always remember that you’re unique and you have a gift to offer. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If they do, they are just jealous because they never gotten the chance to know you and know what you’re about. Characteristics that they find as flaws, the next person will adore it. They will follow, monitor and even try to sabotage you just so their miserable ass can nitpick for something out of the ordinary. Let them continue. It means nothing to you & neither do they. You have an unique quality within yourself that they are lacking and instead of acknowledging that quality & giving credit when it’s due, they ...

controlling your anger.

I'm not going to front. I was withholding a little bit of anger in my heart still from some events that occurred the past year, and has been searching for a way to let it go. Today I was finally taught a very good lesson on how to achieve that. A special guest speaker preached a powerful sermon today. His name is Pastor Jeremy Morton. Here are a few things I learned at church today. Nothing is accomplished by anger. Don't cast stones on Paula Deen & others because you're not supposed to compare yourself to other sinners. Who are you when you're stuck in traffic? Who are you when someone cuts in front of you? Who are you when your children act up? Who are you when you get fired? Who are you when your friend unfriends you on Facebook or unfollows you on Twitter? What makes your anger and sins any ...

it will all fall into place.

Having a peace of mind, a good career, a nice bank account, healthy relationships with family & friends, or the path to find love will have it’s rough moments. Don’t think for once that it’s “easy” to find these things and keep them. Especially love. All of these entities can be achieved simultaneously. You don't have to lose weight first in order to mend your relationship with your father. You don't have to have $10,000 in your bank account before you can fall in love. You don't have to wait until you graduate before you can build a better relationship with God. We spend too much time saying "I can't" instead of saying "I WILL". Life will always have it’s ups and downs. It’s your responsibility to just simply embrace those positives AND negatives that you have in your life. Trust me, they balance each other out to prepare you ...

growth from the negatives.

This is why I do what I do and blog the way I blog. I know that providing my thoughts, experiences, and advice with others will touch at least one person. Here's an email I received: "Hi Chanel. I just wanted to say thank you for helping me get through tough times in my life. Especially my teenage years. I was 16 when I first started reading your blogs and they have helped me so much. Even with my first love, my insecurities, and how I hated my looks for the longest. But your blogs inspired me to hold my head up and keep moving and not care what people think. Here I am at age 25 now and I'm married with one child, and I couldn't have done it without you. I remember when you used to post pictures of your daughter Tyasia. I used to wish that I had ...
