Watch What You Ask 4...

Ok! Soooooo I am on Andre a bit....just a little bit! Lol.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day! I moved to a new place...THANK YOU GOD! SUCH a blessing. Watched Idlewild for the hundredth time. Lol, and yes I fell into lust with Andre yet again. *sigh* lol.

Watch what you ask for man....been dreaming about my 'dream' man, trying to change my perception of guys...and then my homeboy lets me know that he wants the kid. For real, for real cause I am the $%$#! ;) lol.
Anyway, I am like WHAT!? I ain't ready for this man. Even though he is a sweet heart my heart is still quite buised so...no can do right about now....oh welley. I don't heal by jumping into something new. Don't know about you...

Ralph inspirations of note today:

If you find it difficult to deal with where you are, look ahead toward where you're going. Keep yourself focused on the goal at the end of the road, and you'll find the strength to move steadily down that road.

When you continue looking ahead, even the difficult steps will seem lighter. The burdens of the moment become much more bearable when you know there is a purpose behind them.

Your dreams can pull you toward them if you'll give those dreams a prominent place in your heart and your mind. Look ahead toward where you intend to go, and you'll find that each challenge makes you stronger.

When your eye is on the goal, the distractions won't be nearly so distracting. Your efforts will gain the immense power of focus when you're always clearly aware of where you're headed.

Your time, your energy, and your resources will get used no matter which direction you are looking. By choosing to look ahead, you get the highest return for the efforts you invest in your life.


Look ahead, toward the place you most want to be. The more you look, the faster you'll move forward.

******************************************************************************
Life will challenge you regularly. Embrace that challenge with a thankful heart and a creative, resourceful mind.

Each challenge has within it great strength. Go out to meet the challenge, work your way steadily through it, and that strength becomes yours.

Challenge can be painful, inconvenient, embarrassing, tedious and time consuming. And that same challenge also gives life much of its meaning, flavor and fulfillment.

One of the kindest things you can do for someone else is to offer a respectful, meaningful challenge to that person. One of the smartest things you can do for yourself is to take on higher and higher levels of challenge.

Challenge sharpens your priorities and magnifies your performance. Lives of greatness positively thrive on challenge.

Choose to see each challenge as the opportunity for growth, satisfaction and achievement that it is. The world is overflowing with challenges, and inside each challenge you'll find truly immense value.

-- Ralph Marston

I need to print out that Ralph Marston and stick it on my wall...

And I agree. Don't jump into something new before you're over the old. You have to heal.

Watch what you ask for? That's real! I think I'm in the same situation. It's right in my face but wounds aren't fully healed. May be covered up with scabs, but the mark is still there.
