Thankfulness Is Gratefulness

Have you ever felt in your life that you have reached a low point, have you ever felt neglected or rejected? How long did it take you to get out of that frame of mind?

Sometimes in order to change it takes changing your prospective of your life from negative to positive. It will change your whole mood around by being grateful and acknowledging it. It’s never a good thing to focus on all the negative that has come into your life, but instead focus on all your positive attributes, focus on the good things in your life that you have right now.

Take it a step further and dream of all the good you want to come into your life.

Meditate on all the good you want to come into your life. Dream of happy days instead of thinking of depressed situations. Get your mind focused on your daily goals to get you to your next level in life. You must stay on the grind and aim to be around like minded positive people so that you can continue to grow. All you have to do is make a decision and stick with it. God will guide you through every situation if you ask Him; you must trust the process.

Don’t Settle For Safe

In other words do not stay stuck in a situation because that’s all you know. You must do the work that it takes to shift your mindset. No, it is not easy and yes, everyday it will take you correcting your thought process but it can be done.


By definition, grateful is feeling or showing appreciation for something done or received. The definition of thankful is feeling pleased and relieved. Try to feel the emotions of being thankful, show appreciation to others and to God by being grateful. Even though you may not have everything you want, need, or desire at this moment gratitude will take you a long way.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV) – “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Look around and give yourself some type of credit if you really think about where you were just a year ago, I am sure you have made some positive changes in life. If you have even took the time to read this blog or a book give yourself a pat on the back. If you have not made any positive changes…its okay that just means it is time to NOW build yourself up, build your faith up, and get to work!

Everyday we have work to do! Let’s do the work and stop playing, stop complaining, and stop nagging. We have work to do. You can do it!!

What am I grateful for you may ask?

This is one thing I am grateful for: my family.

I am grateful for my family coming together as one unit because I got to marry my bestfriend this year. I am thankful for the many revelations, trials, and errors that were made because they grew our bond stronger, they brought us closer together. We have learned a lot about each other and we have learned quite a bit from one another. We have each other backs for better or for worse. I am grateful for choosing LOVE.

Happiness is yours if you choose it.

Blended Families

Some families are created in different ways but are still, in every way, a family

A blended family starts with a couple that comes together with children from a previous relationship. Sometimes they may not have children together, but when the family comes together his children become her (the wife) children, and her children become his (the husband) children. The children now have additional siblings and at first, it may be a bit much or the family can all come together perfectly. It just depends on where everybody is, as far as their thought process. It is important to make sure that everyone understands that they are important in this new family role and that they are all loved the same.

Turn Your House Into A Home for Everyone, and Fill It With Love

pexels-photo-259588Everyone is coming from different backgrounds with different teachings and different experiences. It is important to keep in mind that everyone has to adjust to a new situation, there will be a lot of agreements and disagreements, as you figure out this new life. No one is expected to get everything right, with parenting there are a lot of trial and error that occurs. You are still learning each other and trying to find out what everybody likes are, and what their dislikes are. Golden Rule: Never put pressure on a person, give everyone proper time to get used to the family, and the bonding will start to take place.

Life is what YOU make It

At times I know that it does get hard, especially when teenagers are involved because no one likes change. They are used to having their mom, or their dad to themselves, and now having to share them can be devastating to a child. It could make or break the relationship/family, but the key is to stay strong, stick to what you have developed as a family, and everything will fall into place.

Being that I am from a blended family, and my family is now becoming a blended family I do have a few tips to offer.

  1. Family meetings are very important. It gives a chance for the parents to lay out the ground rules and get a feel of what everyone is feeling. In this meeting establish that the other adult/parent has the same authority as the other, let it be known that respect is expected on all ends.
  2. Family nights bring on a special bond while having fun. This can be from sitting in the house having movie or game night or finding activities outside of the house.
  3. Keep all lines of communication open and clear. It is important for the parents to be on the same page, and also, it is very important to get the children opinions. If someone is having issues adjusting then it must be brought to the table.
  4. Prayer is always essential; remember a family that prays together stays together.
  5. Always make sure that the children are comfortable with this new life. Take some time out just to hear their thoughts and concerns and come up with ways for everyone to adjust.

God Bless,
