I love this analogy! You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee? "Well because someone bumped into me, of course!" Wrong answer. You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup. Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea. 💗Whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out.💗 Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which WILL happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It's easy to fake it, until you get rattled. *So we have to ask ourselves... “what's in my cup?" When life gets tough, what spills over? Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility? Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions? You choose! 💯 Today let's work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation; and kindness, gentleness and love for others. 🙌🏻🙏🏻🙌🏻 . . #fillyourcupwithlove#gratitude#joy#thankfulness#forgiveness#peace#kindness#gentleness#wordsofaffirmation#beablessing#bekind#choosejoy
Your Monday reminder that you control your attitude! Sometimes we all need an attitude adjustment...a reminder to smile...a nudge to just let it go. Life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies, believe me, I know. But how you deal with life will determine how you feel and how you feel determines how you treat people. And the truth is, how you treat people matters. So, put on a smile and be a blessing today! #beablessing#peoplematter#smileandbehappy#smileeveryday#mymklife
When I first launched my personal blog, @the.lorddave snapped this photo of me! It is one of my favorites! He has since then ventured into interviews and producing. Check out his broadcast, Dave’s Minstrel Show.
I'd love to get your opinion! October is domestic violence awareness month and in the years past, I have made up blessing bags for area shelters near me with all of your help. Last year we donated 60 bags!!!! Which option would you prefer... 1. One big blessing bag donation to a shelter near me 2. Have five of you host an online fundraiser in October where the proceeds (and blessing bags) would be sent to shelters in YOUR area? #fadvadvocate#beablessing#dvam#fadv
