Happy New Year to you all...
Now before I begin to share tasteless memes that I love so dearly, I would like to share an under represented thought!!! What many of you don't know is that I think and ponder REAL topics 20 times more than I joke around....so here is my latest...(it's long so bail now if you don't want the gem! Lol)
Social media is a spilling zone for many to share thoughts, triumphs, and hardships as a method of being transparent and sometimes to cope with concerns that have presented themselves in their lives...
I often see sadness and depression manifest into other behaviors, followed by progression and moving forward after the smoke has settled...
The under represented topic that I spoke of above is that we have to understand the damage that occurs with every downfall and LEARN how to be genuinely happy again....
The more hardship you endure, the more you have to focus on what happiness looks like moving forward........people think that once you lift the load that you should automatically get back to a place of euphoria.....but you may not...
It is important to close the gate of what you have been through, in order to prevent walking that path again......and this is done by showing your brain and body what it feels like to be legitimately content and secure....
Missing this step can cause you to drag in other hardships of life and repeat the same cycle since your brain is now in a vulnerable state....
This message is not based on anyone specifically, but it applies to us all if we happen to run into this.
Having the tools to preserve your mental health is mandatory for you and your families!!
I wish you all health and happiness moving forward, and just know that time is the MOST valuable thing we have so don't let anything keep you from enjoying all of it!!! #Hewzisms
Every morning I walk into the tower, this guy says, “Good morning Mr. Bailey.”
He doesn’t work for my bank, and he doesn’t say that to any of the other executives. Meaning, he never calls them by their name, however, I am the only one (under 60) that looks like him, talks like him, walks like him.
For those of U whom GOD has placed into leadership, especially if U are a minority or an exception, it matters! Understand, U you could be making someone feel joyful about themselves every day and their identity, heritage, gender, or height, every time they see U.
How often do you hear those two simple words? The words that instantly cause creases along the side of your face, also known as a smile. The words that can turn your day from a negative to a positive vibe.
Thank you! How powerful... And how rarely used these days. As I move about in my typical day-to-day I find myself doing what I was raised to do, and that is to be considerate. Think of others and extend a kind gesture every now and then. Excuse me, no problem, have a great day, just to give you an example. Going above and beyond to hold the door for a complete stranger or simply asking someone how they are doing.
It's natural to expect the same gestures in return, however, the world is quite busy with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. I'm reminded to forever have an attitude of gratitude by those who don't understand true and pure etiquette when it comes to showing appreciation for the small things.
"Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts." -Henri Frederic Amiel
One of the GREATEST challenges we will face in our lives, is to break away from the systematic doctrine used to mold us into believing that there is "no other" way, than what's been presented. This is strategically designed to easily manipulate us consciously/subconsciously with every aspect of our daily lives.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED...
Just a penny for my thoughts.
