Change!!!

careerchange_2484438b

Everything changes: seasons, environments, people, likes & dislikes, technology, time and you. I recently changed vocations from the Non Profit back to the For Profit sector.

Change is the constant that we all must adapt to at certain points in our lives. Our attitude and how we maneuver through these changes is important.

No matter how challenging change can be, make the decision to embrace it and make it work for you. Fighting against it will only leave you frustrated and spinning your wheels.

Like a wave, you can ride it out or go tumbling along while being thrashed and dragged about. Change is unavoidable.

The good news is… change can be better than you thought and even more rewarding but you’ll never find out if you’re in fear and constantly complaining. You’ll miss the beauty and blessing it brings. Hugs and love from me to you! Valarie

Window 1544 – Internal boxing — A Window Of Wisdom

When we become frustrated, we lash out unintentionally; but those on the receiving end have no clue of our internal frustration… they only feel hurt by our angry actions. So we must be conscious when we are struggling not to create a struggle for someone else. ~ WOW ~

Dare to Achieve

Whatever your dreams or aspirations are whether business, home, family, or self-improvement. There always seems to be someone in the way with an opinion on what you’re trying to achieve. I can personally relate because throughout my path in life I have ran across a number of people who either doubted my dreams and aspirations […]

A measure of love!

A measure of love is not how much you give but how much you give up for someone else! Prefer your brother in love.

Life’s Surprises!

Well, my sister is visiting my parents in NJ from Germany where she has lived for 9 or 10 years. After taking a family with her trip down south 2 weeks ago, I had to fly to NJ last week because she was having emergency brain surgery to remove a mass. WHAT!?! Yes, life’s surprise in deed. The surgery was successful but now she can’t walk and speaks slowly at times. Still, her attitude is positive as she presses through this temporary challenge. 

First, let me say this, travelers insurance is a must for those who travel a lot. Her insurance covered the surgery (how much I don’t know) as well as transport (soon) back to Germany with a medical professional. All I had to do was call and they handled everything occasionally asking me for a document. Talk about being efficient and helpful! Also, thank God they have an office here in the U.S. because I don’t speak or understand German.

Now, I’m taking an unscheduled trip to Germany with her because health care is so expensive here that her travel insurance wants to send her back to Germany to do rehab since she needs to be in an actual facility. Can we say FMLA with no pay!!! Yes, another one of Life’s surprises!  But that’s what love does!

I won’t complain because she could’ve died. I thank God that it was detected in time! Whatever’s left of the hospital bill we will deal with without stress or worry! I’m just thankful and blessed to still have my sister! 

Hugs and Love Valarie

Choices

We’re all force to make choices in life, both good and bad. Happiness is a state of mind but more importantly it’s a choice. Life will have good, bad and even horrible moments at times but still we have the power to decide how we let it affect us, our love and how  we treat each other. Choices are not always easy or clear but when you make them from a heart of love (thinking about others as well as yourself); you’ll always make the best one!

 Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie
