Do you mind?

Success is often measured by the physical substantial commodes one may posses. In some cases this maybe a true accurate statement. However success is not only the obtainment of physical things, it is also the mental stability to cope within any arena in our life.
Success defined is 1. the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors.
2.the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like.
3.a successful performance or achievement

All these definition are true and there are many more that can be used as well. I especially like the 3rd statement. A successful performance or achievement. This definition employs the concept that we can have a successful mindset. Every things begins and end with the mind. The way we think can greatly affect our well being physically and mentally. So it behooves us to channel our thoughts toward success. And in due time our thoughts will manifest themselves. We are the tantamount of our inner thoughts. So what are you thinking about? If its negative or destructive things….Do you mind changing your thought pattern? It will create a new successful you, employed to prosper.

Proverbs 23:7
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:….

How do you see it?

We have all heard the phrase “the glass half empty or half full.” There are many ways to approach situations that cross our path. Everything that happens to or cross our path impacts our life mentality and physically. The thought to react is first conjured up within our mental process. Once an acceptable response is found we simply react physically. Whether it’s tears, rage, anger, frustration, fighting, stealing, lying, verbal rage outbursts, etc. etc.
They are all secondary acts. The solution to gaining control is to change our thought process. Every thing in life can enter this equation. We can view our circumstances as mediocre or overwhelming. Regardless to whatever comes our way, the answer to the problem lies in our perception.

Think Better… Feel Better

Everyday we encounter diverse situations which can dampen or enlighten our mentality. We oftentimes forget there is an innate ability to overcome lingering inside. We defeat and destroy ourselves with negative thoughts of insecurity. This self destructing act is based on our own perception.
So why wrestle around with thoughts you can’t change mentally? What’s even more bizarre and redundant is to repeat this self defeating act.
Negative thoughts will only change the vessel which carry these bombs of frustration. Once they explode, those bombs will effect the vessel and everyone around or connected to it.


Once I awoke, at least it appeared that way, my body was burning. Billows of fire seem to crawl over the vehicle. Once the flames rushed me, I blacked out. I awoke once more, this time I was dragged down a dark, lifeless tunnel of moans. The stench was unbearable. I gagged at the smell of rotting flesh. The cries and yells ripped through my flesh like a razor. I cried and cried. Replies of evil laughter yelled back at me. Fire crawled on my body like an insect. Hideous creatures assaulted me.

After what seemed like an eternity, I appeared in this hospital room. I now stand without a body, my emotions bleed over, my hands shake, and my eyes are saturated with water as I look upon my body. Why am I terrified?

Maybe it’s because of the sounds I heard and what they represented. Maybe it’s because of the place I visited. Maybe, just maybe, it’s because of my next destination.

“I should’ve prayed that day. Maybe, just maybe, a few hours ago would’ve been different. Who am I kidding; everything led up to that moment. This is the first time I have been in the hospital. I am speechless. The cool sheets rest upon my lifeless body. The cold silence within the room carries the beeps echoing from the heart monitor. I watched the nurse slowly walk into the room. I think she hoped for some improvement, or at least a different display on the EKG. I wanted to reach out and touch her, but I don’t think she would have felt my grasp. As she walked past me, I saw her emotions pouring down. I smelled hopelessness, if it had a fragrance. I regret driving that night. I blame myself for bringing the others into my state of mourning. Bitterness, hatred, and agony possessed me. You know, it wasn’t even about Max or what he stood for. I was drowning in emotions. Sadly, I knew that something happens after death, but I just didn’t want to know what that something was. Regardless of what the EKG displays, and what’s written on the chart hanging at the end of the bed, this will be my last time in here. I’m afraid of the things I’ve seen, and the unforgettable sounds I’ve heard. The indescribable … I’m not going to tell you what I saw, because it doesn’t matter. As I said before, I shouldn’t have driven that night. Had I known the outcome of that night, I would have prayed nonstop. Maybe, just maybe, prayer could have prevented that night.”
