Life is filled with peaks and valleys, but let’s not forget one of the most important elements of having a healthy life…..being grateful and smiling despite what you may be going through. You are on this earth by design. You are loveable, valuable, and you brighten someone’s day whenever they see you. So, let’s smile big today and be grateful for who we are and what we have.
Have you noticed that in our culture today, we are often moving so quickly and doing so much that we forget how to live life step by step?
Have you had a dream or a passion that you cannot get out of your head, but you find yourself skipping steps and failing at your goal?
Do you ever wonder why things are not working out the way you want or planned them to?
I think about all of these things. Even as I write this blog, I realize that sometimes anxiousness hinders our plans. For example, I met a young lady who could not read or write. She said, “I’m gonna write my story one day for the whole world to read!” I said to her, “You have a great goal, so what do you think you need to do first?” She said, “Start writing!” I said, “No, learn to read and write. Take foundational courses online or simply go to the library everyday, join a community literacy program that is free, and learn to be the best reader and writer that you can be.” She looked stunned. I could tell that no one had given her advice like mine before and that is when I reminded her that life happens in the steps of life and NOT in the leaps. Sometimes we want things so badly that we fail to sit down and think logically about what we need to do in order to make our dreams/goals into realities.

Hi TVI:JWJ Readers!
I would like to share the secret to having a great life. I am continuing to learn the importance of living a fulfilled life. The secret is simple, in order to live a fulfilled and great life, I MUST be a giver. As I mature, I am donating my time, I give away clothes that I don’t wear, I give away advice, I give away a smile, I share knowledge that could help others succeed, and if you know me, you know that I give away a ton of laughs. That’s it in a nutshell. The secret to a healthy fulfilling life is…GIVING NOT RECEIVING.
