Life has taught me a multitude of things lately. I’ve learned that perception is everything. The difficult situations in life we often face can be changed or improved just by simply being positive and looking at the bigger picture. There’s an old saying, “I’m too blessed to be stressed”. That mantra is so true. Life is hard, but there is always hope, joy and peace when we change our perception. Perception is everything!

I've had lessons of friendship, truth and honesty, money, church, and family, etc., revisit me lately and I've confirmed this very one thing — I'm still alive. With that, I've learned to keep learning and growing, to denounce self-pride and be affective positively.

Life has recently taught me that everyone needs down time. No matter how busy you get with work or pursuing goals, make sure you go to the beach with friends or attend a family BBQ.

Life has taught me that you can’t let what other people's current status is affect your life. I use to see how well off others were and would be upset that I was not in their shoes. I had to understand and accept that my life and circumstances are different from theirs.

Life has taught me to keep the faith in anything that I do. He can and will make a way out of no way. I have also learned that you must work hard for the things you want in life. My parents taught me that nothing in this world is free!
