    Don't expect anything,

    just let it be. I'm not trying to be lazy, instead I'm trying to encourage us to work harder if we want to get something, even though it might seem like the hardest thing to do, just try. Once you fall doesn't mean you will fall forever. Look up in the sky, say a prayer and hope...

    I am a 22 year old soon to be mommy in June.

    I have three jobs and I'm going to school full time to be a nurse. I am always tired but I believe in what I can achieve. But there is always room for improvement no matter what!

    Positive Thoughts

    Whatever you dwell upon in your mind, you give power to. So of course it makes sense to focus on what you want rather than what you don't want. Yet there are many ways in which the things you don't want can sneak into your thinking. Worry and doubt focus your thinking on what you...

    In your action, you lose sight of the vision,

    you lose sight of your trust in the process, and you just bang around in a sense of futility. Hold the vision and trust that the Universe will acclimate to your vision. Hold the vision and trust the process.
