What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. (Walt Emerson)

What lies beyond the surface of ones character? Your inner being is something that you should always showcase, you are a talent beyond belief!  You live a life that may you may feel sometimes it pales in comparison to others, but in actuality you have something special and that is health and existence.  There are many who are truly suffering from the worst circumstances believable and they have the tenacity of a lion, upon which they project onto the world in ways that allow them to be an inspiration to others.

I recently saw a very young minority female former broadway star on television who needs a bone marrow transplant, and apparently it is hard to find a match for us minorities.  Due to the fact that there are very few minority donors, and I totally thought for a moment that this all makes sense.  Considering I nor most of my minority friends have even spoken about the matter or even considered the thought of becoming  a bone marrow donor.  I can’t even imagine being in a similar situation and relying on the faith that something good will come along.  What I have learned from this situation is that we truly never know what lies inside of us until we are challenged to tap into the inner being and find the strength that keeps us running on what we may feel is an empty tank.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will. (Dr. Robert Anthony)

Think optimistically and drive with an enthusiasm that surpasses everyone who enters your lane.  You don’t need a checklist to make things work, the bigger picture shows an end result that concludes to one result.  So why is it that you feel the need to settle based on a list of must haves?  Grant yourself the serenity of just living based on what truly makes you smile, everyone has flaws and the older, more wiser you become the more understanding of this you will be.  Find compassion in loving how awesome of a person you are and how willing to care for others you will always be.

Learn to listen. Opportunity could be knocking at your door very softly. (Frank Tyger)

Can you hear me? well guess what I am opportunity and the only way to acknowledge me is to appreciate me for what it is that you truly want, but feel that you are not ready for.  Learn to listen to your inner thoughts and take the risks that are necessary to get you what you need.  We are so quick to turn to what is comfortable and it serves no purpose for us to live limited.  I challenge you to do something today that is totally different from what you live by, trust me it will bring a different perspective upon your life and you will learn to love it.
