Why tears? Why joy? For many years I cried about everything. I cried even when I remembered something that had caused me to cry. I cried as a response to questions people asked me about things I'd already cried about in private. It's not so much how much I was crying but it was what was triggering the emotional waterworks. Life was just painful when it got down to just me. Depression is not unhealthy as long as it don't persist and is not dominating your life. I have noticed that many successful people experience periods of depression that propels them after several more life beating situation to the success we see them as later. Tears come when you are sad but extreme joy will also cause tears. So as a form of positive affirmation or an attempt to look on the brighter side I now chose to see tears a thing of joy. I hope this inspires you to turn a negative thing that plagues you into a positive that leads to a change for the better.

So here I am understanding the importance of not having a hot shot bitch that nobody can touch attitude or behavior. I'm being willing to learn that one can be very giving. Willing to go above and beyond for others, and truly focused on the bettering of others while becoming a responsibly successful entrepreneur. Yep a mouth and mind full but a worthy cause. I've always had the ability to motivate people so the idea of being more proactive in this arena of my life makes sense. A noble human cause. I said all of this to really say; we often are too busy thinking highly of ourselves we forget to think that highly of others. When I say others I don't mean people you find cute or that impress you. I mean people you would normally write off. They deserve your vote of hope if not your vote of confidence. The commonality in most successful people who made it despite the odd is that that person believed in themselves when no one else did(They stood alone for lack of others to stand by them.). Why can't you be that for someone-the person who believed in them. I'm not saying every Tom, Dick, and Henry but at least for someone in your circle of people who you can tell needs it. The thing is when you start thinking like this you're bound to make waves of difference in peoples lives. After all a Large tree was once a seed. So be the seed in someone's life that brings a tree out of the person.

The joy of a crush is the feel that comes when your heart beat take a steady elevated beat that makes you notice that that person is near. That feeling that threatens to unravel the very calm of you. That can bring you to embarrassment over things that wouldn't even cause you to blink, in normal circumstances. That feeling that brings hope upon hope of something imagined but hoped to be true-even if you don't believe it will ever be. I say enjoy it for you will not always have crushes and like many things in life why not smile about it. Especially if you can't do anything about it. So to my crush, here's my smile [ : ) ]

If only relationships were made of this simple statement. Life should be simple and is therefor simple. Only for some reason we find that things are complected or hard at times. A day like Valentines day makes my point for me. Some people love this day no matter how it turns out or has been turning out. While others dread it and try to avoid it at all cost. Yes a date may have a meaning attached to it but it is still a day like any other to be lived. With that said I aim to assist people to put less pressure on the meanings the day has come to be for them. Instead of defining the day why not live the day. Give it life, set it free, or simply enjoy it as you are to enjoy your life- with fullness of joy. Find what this means to you and how to achieve it. This will be something different for each of us but something worth doing all the same. Here's to a day you learn to Love as it was intended to remind us of the joy of Loving. For a day is as simple as you make it- just like the statement, 'Life is Simple'.

They say, 'show me your friends and I'll show you who you are.' I had the pleasure of observing toddlers who really are great example of what a friendship really looks like from outside-the real picture. These toddlers had their days. Some days it was all about support- T would hang out at D's crib when he saw him struggling with being there. He'd bring him toys and sit there and place his hand on the mesh of the cot for D to touch and know he was there. Then there were the other days. T would grab toys out of D's hand and beat back if D tried to get his toy back or retaliate. These are just picks of what I saw but even in just those two you can see that being a friend unfortunately has a good and bad. Though in the end those attempts to be there are the ones we should count. But if you're one to count the fend for yourself days then think this even you aren't the perfect friend. So when next you want to think less of a friend because of the times they couldn't, remember a friend is only a friend because of the times they could.
