Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my beautiful souls. I cannot believe how last year came and went and yet here we are in another decade! The years just seem to be flying by! I don’t want to sound like a broken record and write the usual best wishes that everyone writes. Wishing the usual love, happiness and joy to all. I’d rather write about doing things for yourself that genuinely make you happy. 

Letting you know the importance of following your dreams. Don’t put off till tomorrow what you know in your heart you want! 

Keep smiling! Leave the tension that’s been accumulated behind! Feel the joy, forget your worries. Most of the times, the things we worry about don’t even come to fruition. Make peace with anyone holding grudges. Take that leap of faith and leave behind anything that causes you pain. Most importantly, always be happy!

Enjoy the little things in your life, they are actually the biggest ones… and…don’t forget to smile!

Happy New Year 🌹

Break it Down

Procrastination will rob you of your sense of purpose and of fulfillment. It is a tiny virus that slowly gets into your whole being and selfishly eats away at your creative energy that otherwise had you not been attacked by the bug of putting off what you could do today, you would have accomplished what you intended of doing.

Stick to a plan. Make a list. Break down everything into tiny parts. Once you do what needs to be done, you won’t be overwhelmed but actually have a sense of pride of all that you’ve accomplished.

Perhaps waking up a little earlier when everyone is still fast asleep or waiting after everyone has gone to bed and the chores are all done… We only have 24 hours in the day but we all deserve to do things for ourselves. Things that bring us joy and happiness. 

Sometimes we have all the time for others and to do things for others that we forget about ourselves…  Breaking our tasks down will allow us a bigger time frame to get things done and before you know it, you just might have more time to do more of the things you love! ❤️

Love One Another Firsthand

We have to teach our children to be loving and caring of one another. To accept everyone regardless of the colour of their skin or ethnic backgrounds.

To look beyond any imperfections, and we all know that we are not perfect. We all make mistakes and make wrong choices. It’s not teaching your kids to defend themselves in an argument that counts. It’s teaching them not to judge one another and be more compassionate! 

It’s teaching our kids that not everyone will like us but that’s ok because just as long as we like ourselves that’s what matters. It’s picking up on the clues that something might be wrong with our child when they appear angry out of nowhere. It’s really our responsibility as parents to make sure that the tree that we created in a way of speaking, grows up tall and strong and knows how to be more accepting of everyone regardless of their issues and disabilities.

It doesn’t matter what type of family you come from, if it’s with a traditional mother or father, or two fathers or two mothers or just one playing the part of both or even a grandparent acting out as both, families still need to show love to their kids and teach them empathy.

What I see mainly, is a lot of judgmental children that are so quick to judge without knowing the whole story or trying to understand when all we need is more love..  more openness… more acceptance…. We teach our kids to look beyond the colour of the skin or disabilities…. that a child is a child no matter what they look like and deserves friends and someone to play with! We show our kids to love one another firsthand! ❤️

Always Shine Bright

Don’t be the reason you don’t succeed… Don’t listen to the voices inside of you or the others telling you that your not capable! 

We are all capable of great things. We are all worthy of success and happiness. There’s no need to prove anything to no one. Only to do it all for ourselves without anyone’s approval or consent.

We live in a shallow world filled with people waiting to dismiss or criticize anybody’s attempt for happiness or success. When in reality everyone’s entitled to their day in the sun!

It’s time to stop looking elsewhere for approval and look inside ourselves for the answers…  Always shine bright! ❤️

May 2019 bring you and your families a year filled with happiness, Love, health and many more without forgetting the Happy moments spent with those you love… If you know someone that needs your company because they are alone be there for them! Be that hand when needed! Be that voice to talk to them! We have so much to be grateful for! There is a lot of people that wish they had half of what we have. Be there for who needs it! Happy New Year once again! 😃

Good Morning my Friends 

May today be your day to Shine bright… Don’t get discouraged, just keep shining bright and keep your eyes on the Prize! Before you know it, your time has come! ❤️

Keep the Love in your Heart

You are enough… There is no one like you in this world! In days that your feeling down, remember to keep your head up high and think back on all the hardships you endured and today are just a memory!

We are all special in our unique ways…. we all have different ideas and perceptions that bring out the best of this world! Just keep on being yourself and doing the best you can! It’s with our differences that makes us a whole! Some people might not see the same as you do but that’s ok because as long as our differences doesn’t hurt anyone in the process we all can live together accepting one another! 

Keep the love in your heart! ❤️

Look at Me

 

I work in a Construction Union in the Administration Department and we have a lot of members that are women that unfortunately somehow still feel discriminated because of their gender. I wrote this in hopes that one day we all could see each other as individuals and look beyond genders and see people as people! 

 

 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see a girl frightened away?

Or do you see a person waiting for just one chance to be accepted for all that comes!

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am a fighter! A survivor! I build structures and design dreams! 

I am waiting to fit in! To show this world that anything is possible! 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see my struggles day in day out that I’ve overcome and all those setbacks that I’ve endured.

Take a walk in my shoes, see the world through my eyes.

You’ll see my strive to keep going resulting on my best comebacks

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am stronger now because I believed in myself! I woke up and realized that life is worth living 

That as Lou Holtz said, “life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it”. I choose to move forward!

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see all the storms that I’ve travelled through…The rain doesn’t last forever and the sun will come out and I will shine through 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Do you see my biggest victories come from my hardest pain

When I thought I couldn’t continue I gave it one more shot 

Here I am, in this big great nation

Which was built with lots of sweat

Look at me! 

What do you see?

Do you see that all my hard work and dedication 

Will finally pay off and be appreciated as a team regardless of my race gender religion or sexual orientation 

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am a mother and daughter but I am much more than that 

I design highways and of build houses

Work from dusk to sunset

Manage my house and keep the peace 

Look at me!

What do you see?

I am here to serve a purpose 

To be the voice that you hear just before giving up!

To let you know that when someone says you can’t show them how it’s done! 

I wasn’t always that way but I fought hard 

Beyond many sleepless nights and many broken dreams that just needed one more try to come true

Life is all around us! Construction is life! We are all bound to each other sculpting our dreams one day at a time!

When someone doubts you, keep going! Prove them wrong! 

Look at me!

What do you see?

Determination to change the world one Brick at a time!
