Hello, loyal readers! I read a statement that not only did I read it, but I also spoke it out loud. The quote said, “In the middle of crisis, their lies opportunity.” This quote made me ponder more deeply. Why? Because it speaks that there is a treasure in the center of difficulty. This treasure, when you look for it, will make you see things in a different perspective.

According to the dictionary, opportunity is defined as a good position, chance, or prospect, as for advancement or success. How can you see this in the midst of your crisis? First, take time to reflect on what you are trying to overcome. By writing down the problem and possible solutions, you are facing it head on.

This will allow your mind to become clearer because you are transferring your thoughts to a piece of paper. Write down the question, “how else can I achieve what I desire to do or attain?” Once you have exhausted your answers, ask someone experienced for wise counsel. An objective wise person will provide a greater insight you may have not yet considered.

Finally, put into action the steps you have determined would be the best option for your circumstance. However, remember to always have several backup plans. If it does not work as you had anticipated, no worries. Don’t halt! Use your backup plans until you succeed.

With determination, you will gain strength to find more creative ways for your situation. You will humbly seek advice from wise people you trust. Your inquisitive mind will discover new approaches for the challenge. The heart will be encouraged by your achievable actions. As your perceptive turns to the opportunity in the middle of your crisis, you will become unstoppable!

“Know that (skillful and godly) wisdom is (so very good) for your life and soul; if you find wisdom, then there will be a future and a reward, and your hope and expectations will not be cut off.” Proverbs 24:14

Hello, loyal readers! Did you know that your voice is as unique as your fingerprints? There is no one else that sounds just like you. It may be almost as precise as your tone, pitch, and quality but never exact. This is why they can use voice recognition in many of the most sophisticated systems for verification.

What makes our voice unique? There are endless variations when we speak that give clues about who we are, what we do, and where we’re from. It is not just about what is said, but how you say it. Our choice of words, sentence structures, and even our use of humor are wrapped in the uniqueness of it.

It will convey the assurance and authority of what you are expressing or lack thereof. When you know who you are and who you are speaking to, it will reflect the importance and impact on those that will hear you. Be conscious of this truth.

Be intentionally impactful with your message. Know beforehand what is the outcome of what you desire to have on others. Let it be a transformative and enriching conversation for everyone involved. Leave a lasting impression for all to remember fondly.

You may not know the profound effect your voice will have on someone who is hurting, discouraged, brokenhearted, hopeless, or confused. Your voice may activate and stir their spirits to come out of the dark and into the ray of a brighter, loving, hopeful, and renewed tomorrow. Let your unique voice be released today!

“Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.” Proverbs 4:5

Hello, loyal readers! Is it me or is time flying by like a shooting star in the middle of the dark night? I believe that as technology continues to accelerate like the speed of light, we need to be conscientious of our time. With that said, I am not only referring to our environment but to our inner self.

Since time is an invaluable commodity, it is critical to factor in who we want to interact with and why we are connecting with them. To answer that question, we must first analyze what is important to us. Do you have the answer to this question? If so, you are authentic to who you are. If you are not sure, let’s dive deeper into the subject.

What is authenticity? It is defined as genuine, trustworthy, reliable, representing a true nature of belief. Psychology today states, “being authentic involves the ability to be introspective and understand what motivates oneself. Would you consider yourself authentic?

How can you determine if you are authentic? Align your actions with your core values and beliefs. Measure your decisions with a plan of actions that will not be in contradiction with your true self. Stand up boldly and speak truthfully even if you are not popular.

Know that at the end of the day, when you look at yourself in the mirror, there are no regrets. You have been true first and foremost to yourself. Secondly, you are genuine to others around you. Lastly. but not least, you are wholeheartedly sincere to God. He sees it all!

Embrace authenticity like a warm cozy blanket in the coldest of winter. Always have it cover you. You will see that when you are authentic, your time, your relationships, your environment will be an oasis of blessings. With that said, I want you to always remember, “Be fearlessly authentic!”

“But you, be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work.”

2 Chronicles 15:7

Peace, Love, and Joy!
