Another Milestone Accomplished

Image

A journey I began in January of 2010 finally came to an end on December, 2013.

My life long dream of becoming a teacher has now become a reality. This accomplishment did not come without it’s ups and downs.

I forfeited many nights of needed sleep preparing research papers, lesson plans, group and individual projects, and presentations just to name a few of the critical assignments that were required in order to pass my classes.

I entered every classroom with the determination not to quit. Having such a strong desire to know and learn more I took one year worth of classes that had nothing to do with my intended goal.

I took classes such as Criminology, Sociology, Appreciation of Theatre, Anthropology and I could go a little further.

Although these classes were not required I left with a world of knowledge. Even though there wasn’t an immediate need for such I believe every course taken will eventually come in handy some day.

I found myself encouraging fellow students many times by letting them know they were able to do anything they put their minds to.

I painted a picture of their desired accomplishment yet to be achieved which in turn propelled them to keep moving forward.

I gave up some movie nights, occasional dinners at restaurants, walks along side the beach etc… Now that walking across that platform on graduation day has come and gone I look back and say to myself……

It was worth it all. I’m happy that my inner desire was much stronger than momentary wants. My aspirations is pushing me to another level of milestone.

I know I could do “all things” through Christ that strengthens me.

 

As I Wait………

As I wait

My heart skips with great expectation when I look beyond the hills.

I see a lovely rainbow so vibrant, so alive, and so promising. As I close my eyes I somehow feel the texture of it. The rainbow is soft and smooth as grapes. The smell is as fresh linen in the month of May.

Oh how I long to lay freely over the rainbow.
I had a dream about it just the other day. I sat on the dock of a bay, with my feet dangling in the ocean. Oh how lovely the ocean appeared to me.

As I looked into the water, there it was…. A rainbow appeared, so vibrant, so alive, and so promising. Again my heart skipped with great expectation.
The day will come, soon enough when waiting will be no more.

Until then, I will look beyond the hills.

Secret behind the Secret

Dr. Anthony Raimondo

Formula for Manifestation

Today I will reveal to you the Secret behind the Secret. Folks  a scorpion asked a fog if it would carry it across a stream. The Fog replied,  “No because you will sting me.” The scorpion said, “If I do we will both die because I cannot swim.” The fog agrees to carry the scorpion across the stream. Half way across the scorpion stings the fog. The fog asked, “Why did you do that.” He answered,  “I am a scorpion that’s what I do.”  “We can’t be something we are not but we can be great and who and what we are.”

In an article written by Erica Person of the Daily News on Wednesday, January 06, 2010 she wrote a new study shows 45% of the work force are satisfied with their work, which means 55% are not. Also that 90% of the work force are…

In This Moment

In this moment of silence I look back and notice how far I’ve come.
It is a moment filled with promises of where I’m headed.
As I reflect back my heart of hearts says I must keep looking ahead.
It is my past that propels me to move forward. Without it I move not.
I’m grateful that I can look back and reflect on my past.
I am who I am today because of it.
I’m beautiful, I’m full of life, with zeal I move forward to my future.
It looks great, it is a place I’ve never been before.
But Oh….. I saw glimps of it, my future, in my dreams.
In this moment I dance for what I see ahead. It’s Beautiful.

At last, Mummy has let *me* have a guest post!

What better thing to show you all is *my backyard*!

This is my own personal domain. I can do what I like. I can sniff where I like. I can do my jobs, big or small, where I like. I can run and play chasing, or just relax.

And I never think back to my former life where Mummy and Daddy found me, living in a pound. Well, maybe I do in quiet moments, but it all seems so long ago…
