View your life experiences as a stepping stone to becoming a better you. Use your gifts to help another person and be the voice for the voiceless. Walk in faith, humility, reverence and obedience to a higher power and the ‘otherness’ that fuels your spiritual awakenings and guide your steps through troubles, setbacks and struggle.

Be willing to forgive and ask forgiveness for yourself when you’ve been assaulted by lies and slandered with untruths. Be strong in your resolve to become the bigger and better person than the person with unkind intent. Pray for forgiveness for your own ‘ugly’ ways and make a life change.

Recognize that life is a journey and you have to be a willing participant in order to grow and become the person you’ve always wanted to know.

Don’t be defeated by defeat. Use scripture to guide you in your decision making and walk in truth, humility and gratitude. Know that you are only human with human frailties and don’t wallow in self pity and regret for past mistakes. Pray to a higher power and let it go. Share your triumphs over adversity with an audience of people whose commonalities you share. Use your voice to uplift and empower the voice of others.

Don’t live a fake life in pretense of being somebody you’re not. Walk in your own truths. Make your own decisions and know that with every choice, comes a consequence- make wise choices.

Use your words to uplift and inspire and not to humiliate and wound. Words are like bullets that can lead to destruction of a human spirit and end a life. Be kind, humbled and assertive and not aggressive, abrasive and ugly.

Surround yourself with positive people and live your life on purpose. Walk your own path and be yourself. Nobody can know you better than you know yourself, so don’t be fearful of living your truths. Sow seeds of gratitude and give back to those in need and understand the significance. The seeds you sow don’t always come in currency. Offer to babysit for a neighbor while they run errands or grocery shop. Invite a friend out to lunch or pick up the phone to call someone- just because.

Be kind to others and you will be rewarded by the universe. Lend a helping hand whenever and wherever the opportunity arises. Make someone else heart happy and you will experience overwhelming joy in your own heart. Respect the wisdom of the elders and pay homage to their vast knowledge of life. They have lived and learned valuable lessons from the journey of life on which you only just begun.

Remember the courage of your ancestors and all they endured through the generations. Be the person who walks in humility and grace. Live authentically, spiritually and purposely. Do the work needed to Know your ‘truth’ self. Live your life with confidence. Don’t give up on your dreams. Expect good for your life and seek a heart “centered” life. Be brave.
