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.

Relationship Stages: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The Good Times


Good times are always the best part of every relationship. The fun times are the greatest of all time, it’s a time period that you never want to end. Waking up in pure bliss because your heart is growing fonder for this relationship, falling in love over and over, again. Texting and calling throughout the day to make sure he’s not stressing at work, and him checking on you because he misses you. Being excited to make it home from a long day of work to lay up under bae, cuddle, talk, make sweet love. The sex is bomb because the chemistry between you two are like fireworks. What can top this feeling, nothing! There are no words that can describe this happy feeling in the air, nothing but love and happiness. And then…

The Bad Times

The Bad times don’t last long but they do take a lot out of your relationship. You lose focus on what’s important and how to make your relationship grow. The arguing is as consistent as it would be “in the ugly times” but it’s enough to make you go out and ponder what’s going on. This is a phase of ups and downs, one-moment y’all are cool, and the next your bickering for no real major reason. It just seems like you may need a little “me time ” which for some people getting some fresh air, or going for a walk to help clear your mind will get the job done. A lot of the time we bring home the frustrations of the world home and drop them on our partner’s lap without even knowing it. It’s ok to let him know how your day went, but it’s another to be angry and upset with him because of something your boss said to you.

Home is supposed to be your happy place, where there is peace and serenity. If you feel that you don’t have peace at home, or you all are arguing about the most dumbest thing I would advise you two to come together and have a long talk (without fighting) find out what issues are bothering him and vice versa. You can even pray about it and bring peace back into the atmosphere.

Where there is Love, there is also Peace

The Ugly Times

The Ugly times in a relationship will have you questioning your sanity. It’s worse than the bad times, it’s so much miscommunication that it will start to make you feel sick. Most times you can’t fully get your point across because either it comes out wrong, or it gets taken the wrong way. You began to think is this even worth fighting for, what are we doing, what am I doing?Constantly arguing, not being able to hear each other’s concerns, wants, or needs. On top of all of that, there is minimum to no sex, because of the lost of communication, there is no sex drive only frustration.

Not being able to see eye to eye has to be the worse.

It’s like no matter what you just can’t seem to get along. Every word, and every thought, and every feeling becomes a fight. The disrespect, dishonor is at an all-time low at this stage. Your only focus is to hurt each other with your words and actions something has to give!

Now, it is starting to affect your work, your off,  and everything feels like it’s falling apart. There is no win situation because your world is tumbling down. You began to feel as if you can’t breathe because there is no peace within your home. Something has to change but you don’t know what to change or how to change things. It’s a struggle sometimes, but if your relationship is going to work, you both have to reconnect and do the work apart (working on self), and together (working on the relationship as a whole).

Prayer does change things! This is not just a saying, this is real life situations.

Pray together, go to church together, turn your whole focus back to God, learn how to love each other the right way. God will lead you but you have to be willing to follow. Marriage/pre-marital counseling will always help in order to get the relationship heading in the right direction.

God Bless,
