Can you see your Potential?


Everyone knows someone who seems perfect.

You know the kind of people who are beautiful, smart, and gifted at everything.

It seems like they can do no wrong.

Well,they can.

No one is perfect and everyone is good at something.

You just have to find what you are good at.

A lot of times other people will find out before you do.

Remember that teacher who was mean to you and nice to everyone else.

She believed in you.

Remember when your parents would not let you go out because of your grades.

They believed in you.

Remember when the school bully pushed you into your locker everyday after school.

Okay, some people are just mean.

Most people who are mean have reasons.

The bully could have been bored, insecure, or even envious.

Maybe the bully saw something in you that he wanted for himself.

Maybe he saw something special.

Maybe he believed in you.

Lots of people do.

This means nothing if you do not believe in yourself.

Find something that you love .

You don’t have to be the best.

You don’t have to pass every test.

You just have to try.

You will be surprised at what you find.

Can you see your potential?

“The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good.” -Brian Tracy

I am Vulnerable.


I am vulnerable.

I worry about what people think.

I let them control me.

I make plans that I don’t follow through.

I have dreams that don’t come true.

I put everything above them.

I think they are unimportant.

I think I that they are too big.

I think that I am too small.

I am vulnerable.

Respected Life means so much to me.It is a part of my dream.

I will explain why.

When I was growing up, I did not have much.I watched my parents be belittled,bashed, and betrayed.

I watched them struggle. I watched them cry. I watched them smile.

They taught me how to live. They taught me how to fight. They taught me how to inspire.

My family has been without. We still are without, but we are happy. We won’t stop fighting. We won’t stop smiling.

My parents always tell me to strive for the best. They want me to pass every test.

I am vulnerable.

I don’t want my family to struggle. I don’t want them to cry.I want them to have the world. I throw myself into my studies.  I forget about everything else. I am only focused on getting better. I forget about fun. I forget about  friends. I forget about dreams.

I am vunerable.

I just want to help. I want to help more than my family. I want to help more than the poor. I want to help more than myself.I want to help the teen who doesn’t know how to fix her hair. I want to help the single dad or mom who is having trouble paying the bills. I want to help the  diabetic  on dialysis. I want to help anyone who wants to make difference.

I know that I don’t have the popularity of a celebrity. My blog is not a “top” blog, but I believe that it can help others.  I believe that everybody is somebody. If I can make  one person smile, then I have succeeded.

Well, what if I don’t succeed?  That is the question that I often ask myself. This is why I run away. This is why I’m inconsistent.

This is why I am vulnerable.

This is why I need to change.

This is why I will change.

This is why I am strong.

“You cannot let go of anything if you cannot notice that you are holding it. Admit your ‘weaknesses’ and watch them morph into your greatest strengths.”- Neale Donald Walsch

Stop being a Spoiled Brat !


via photobucket.com

I went shopping with my family during tax-free weekend.  I bought some nice things. I should  have been happy. I should have been satisfied, but I wasn’t. I still found ways to complain. I still found reasons to roll my eyes. I still found reasons to be unhappy. I behaved like a spoiled brat!
