Be True to Yourself



Today’s society and world are a combination of competitive and negative elements.
Being true to yourself means staying strong in your convictions and not being influenced by others to serve their purpose.  
“A Lion is a Lion, even in a cage”
You are your own best friend. Trust no one with your deepest secret or dream goals. Jealousy is a disease of the soul and people would rather you see down and out, rather than lend a hand and help you succeed.
The bottom line is that most people from suffer from low self-esteem, zero self-confidence and have the need to bring anyone down that will not comply with their wishes; the controlling mechanism activates and they must have their way or animosity prevails.
Being the new kid on the block is tough, whether it’s school or a new neighborhood. We want to belong, be accepted without losing our identity to become one-of-them. 
This is the exact quality that makes us stand out from the rest; hence, Be True to Yourself. We can still fit, have our ideas and suggestions about how things should be and command respect for our input and feedback.
Imagine yourself introduced to royalty; they are the upper crust; wealth and reputation reign as top priority while you enjoy a good laugh, fun in the sun and great burger/fries. While they question your lifestyle, they are also curious and secretly have no problem experiencing just a sample of such.
Those who are true to themselves become the real leaders of life and society.
It’s been said you can wear your hair for just so long before it falls down. Translated this means you pretend to be whoever but in essence, the real you will be revealed at some point.
Life is complicated enough; hence, being true to yourself is what I call, “What you see is what you get” and people love you for it because you are the real deal.  
Be true to yourself and watch the world tear a page from your book.

Hear My Roar!

There is nothing in this life that cannot be fixed or, resolved;hence, life consists of situations, not problems. Like grandma used to say“there’s a lid for every pot”.

Whether it is parenting, enjoying a relationship or, trying to advance in the workplace, the key ingredients are patience, persistence and pursuit.


Patience:Stand back and view the entire picture.
Persistence: Tool of determination. Stay positive. Let nothing and no one deter you from moving forward.

Pursuit:  Aim high until you achieve that dream/goal.

What you would realize later in life that you live in a negative society that thrives on obstacles that hold you down and hold you back.

The Early Years
From toddler to adolescence, your mind was pretty much on what you wanted to be when you grow up. Family and friends mused over your vivid imagination. You were a child and had no voice of your own.

During the scholastic years, your classmates and teachers (professors) were actually supportive in your goals and what you hoped t…

Why Marrying Your Best Friend could be a Mistake

Each of us has that one special someone we have known for most of our life and to whom we can bear our soul without being judged or betrayed. They are our support system 24/ in good times and in not so good times. They are that one positive, constant we depen -->d on to keep us honest and grounded.
Soulmate and best friend are entirely different. A soulmate is someone who encourages us and helps us grow on all three levels – personally, socially and professionally.
We share secrets with our best friend and other stuff we could never share with a family member, other friends or acquaintance; so why is it a huge mistake to fall in love with and marry our best friend?
A best friend means just “that” / someone we turn to for rescue or advice when life’s ocean creates too many ripples and we feel ourselves drowning.

When we marry our best friend, life changes but not always for the better. That person actually stops being our best friend since marriage takes on a different hue and role. M…

What Puts Power in the Power Couple

Grandma always said: Be beautiful at the window, be an angel in the kitchen and a devil in the bedroom. 

Love, trust, understanding and communication are the common denominators for a good relationship, whether you are companions or dating long-term and contemplating the big step.
The Power Couple is the highest level-relationship. They do have their ups and downs, but quickly resolved and never disclosed in public.
The power couple is admired and envied. They always seem to be in sync and display compatibly wherever they go. This is not a fairy tale relationship by any means but the ingredients are different.
How It begins Most people marry their high school or college sweetheart or, they go separate ways after school for whatever reason – they might marry – then either divorce or become widowed. Then it comes into play at the High School Class/College Reunion. They meet once again, catch up and discover they are both in the “same place” and ready to rekindle that old flame.
The power c…
