How do you measure up against your potential? In reality, that should be your only competition. Today, excel in your God-given talents. You are unique and so are your talents. Focus only on yourself and don't stop until you get that trophy!
As we come close to the end of 2016, let me remind you that life is a journey. It is not about the destination so much as how you enjoy each step of the way. You have an outfit you have been dying to wear, wear it today. You have a restaurant you've been wanting to dine at, do it today. You have a guy/girl you have been dying to ask out, do it today. Whatever it is, live your best life NOW. If you have to travel on the journey of life, you might as well do it with some fun and style.
I pray that you may increase in anointing, in wisdom, in favor and in influence! Amen!
Santa Baby, hurry down the chimney tonight!

“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”
"We must use the virgin morning to shape a schedule that is ours before the world shoves its corrupt needs in our direction."
"Everybody's busy getting on with their own lives
It can feel that you're forgotten, like you've been left behind
But God still has a plan for you
Even though you feel sometimes, your better days are through
As long as you're still here, there still work for you to do"
"If you are going to do a sit up, and do that one sit up, the very best that you can. You don’t take anything for granted. You don’t assume that you have tomorrow. Everything we do in life is a choice. And those choices dictate the kind of life you are going to lead. As soon as you understand that, you start taking ownership of your life. You start to design your life to turn out whatever way you want.”
~~The movie, Full Out
When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand
and nothing, whoa, nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there
to brighten up even your darkest nights.
You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I'll be there, yeah, yeah,
you've got a friend.
I am going to create a new and improved me. I am going to turn the page and get started on the greatest journey of my life.
How about you?
