We all face some type of pressure at different stages of our lives and although it can have a positive effect on behaviour, it can also be negative.
First, we are encouraged to act right, to excel in school and to get a job, all while dealing with the pressures of bullies, alcohol, tobacco, sex & drugs. Then there is pressure to find a husband and if you are still single by (insert age here), the questions start coming: “Why are you still single!? Is there something wrong with you!?” If you are in a serious relationship and you’ve past the X-month/year mark, you get the: “Where’s the ring!? When is the wedding!?” Let’s not forget the newlyweds the day after the wedding: “When is the baby coming!? You’re not getting any younger. Your clock is ticking!”
Heard it all before!!!…whether it was directed at me or someone close to me and to that I say: Keep your comments & questions to yourself! Your may have good intentions and you may mean well but it’s just not fair to the other person. You don’t know their journey, what they’ve been through or what they’re dealing with so it’s best to just keep it on mute.
No one needs that type of pressure in life.
So…for all those dealing with THE PRESSURE (moi included!), don’t be
too concerned with what others think or say. Just let go and let God! Doing this will bring you true happiness!
You were created to live a happy life. You were created to be undefeated, resilient and proud. You were created to feel wanted. You were created to be victorious! Start living your victory today!
Today, think about what makes you happy. What brings you happiness? Concentrate on that. Reflect on it. Focus on that ‘happy’ moment and see how you can create more of it. Life is so much better with love, joy & happiness so it’s important to include these in our lives.
There are so many reasons to be happy. One of my reasons is family. Although I didn’t get to pick mine, I’m so thankful that God blessed me with an amazing one. What’s your reason for happiness?
Happy Sunday! Be blessed!
Follow these 3 simple life rules and see your life change for the better!
▫️Happiness is key to living a great life. This emotional state of well-being can cause such a positive chain reaction. Something as simple as smiling can go a long way. Less frowns, more smiles. It’s contagious! 😊
▫️Brightness is an attribute of perception in which the visual target appears to be radiating. Well, that target is you! You were born to shine bright so bring out the Star In You!
▫️Uniqueness is what makes you different from everyone else. There is one and only one you. Embrace it and be true to who you are. There is much beauty in that.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful mothers out there. Past, Present, New (Congrats Mona!) and Soon to Be Mothers!

Thank you for your unconditional love, your compassion, all of the sacrifices and the labour you invested into us, your children…you are truly amazing!
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
(Proverbs 31:25-31 NIV)
Je t’aime mamy Chérie!

We all try to plan our lives to the best of our abilities in the hopes that everything will work out according to plan. When they don’t, we start wondering why⁉️
Why did this happen❓Why me❓Why not me❓ Why now❓
Only to find out that the obstacles, the bumps, the setbacks were meant to be for something bigger, better and greater after all. We just have to learn to trust God’s will‼️
Remember that God always has better plans for you so keep the faith❗️
