Hello, welcome to MY MUSINGS. I will be sharing some motivational quotes & stories to motivate us and inspire us to be the best versions of ourselves. We are all here for a purpose and the world needs our unique GIFTS..

When you look at that quote what comes to mind? First of all, I get excited by the colors, (Remember I am like a burst of Rainbow? šŸ˜‰Ā  And then I think of other similar quotes like “When life throws you a lemon, make lemonade“, “Charity begins at home” and Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) phrase “Start Here, Go Anywhere“.

What do all these quotes have in common? they are all telling us toĀ make the most of where we find ourselves. Have you ever caught yourself in that trail of thought where you are thinking out loud or even having a legit conversation with friends saying something like this, ” If only I had more money, I would be able to achieve that” Or “If I had access to all the same vegetable options and food options they have, I will be able to loose weight” Lol. My take fromĀ the quotes is to make the most of what we have.

Let me share a little story.Ā 

A few years ago, I had to start life all over again. Mind you, prior to that experience I always had help somehow till I got to that point where I felt stuck. I hated that feeling so much and didn’t want to EVER experience it. I also didn’t want to cry out for help because that was my default mode. I needed to prove to myself that regardless of what I faced, I could rise up against every challenge even with my finances.

I wanted to prove to myself that I could flip a dollar and make two dollars. so I searched within. I wrote down all my strengths and my skills, I got access to a couple that owned a farm and I reached out to them to sell chickens. Yes fresh chickens with the slogan “Fresh out the poultry and straight to your doorstep” LOL. It was tough but I did it! That experience has helped me in so many ways because I don’t think any experience can scare me. Of cos, thanks to my ChristianĀ background and the knowledge that I know that I have a God who is always with me but I am so confident that I have the ability to create wealth wherever I am so I don’t let anything get to me.

So yeah, regardless of how crappy you think yourĀ present situation is or how messed up your environment might feel at the moment challenge yourself. Look inward you will discover your inner strength. Make the most of what you can with what you have. Start from where you are. Break a leg while you are at it:) and watch everything align in your favor (coupled with a brand new positive attitude).

Have a Blockbuster week!

Love + Light,
