Love Killers: Thirst

The desire to not appear “thirsty” has to be one of they big reasons couples today struggle to get new relationships off the ground.

You are considered needy or crazy if you don’t participate in the struggle not appear like you don’t need a parter on this earth. Women act distracted and aloof even in the midst of the perfect guy. Men make it a point to distract themselves to the point where they ignore women, and call it “just being a man”.

Both men and women will quickly kick to the curb any partner who seems to enjoy their company too much.

So then we all end up in love with only the most careless and non committal of all the partners we’ve had to choose from. And we complain when the partner we have settled upon does not pay too much attention to us.

It’s because everyone has trained each other to appreciate dehydration in a partner.

Step III – Baby Steps

One of my big mistakes in pursuing my dream of becoming a best-selling author, was making Step 1- Write a Book. That’s HUGE. I struggled for months with the feeling that I wasn’t moving ahead. I was moving ahead because I was writing, but when I couldn’t write for whatever reason, I felt like I was failing.

Writing a book is immeasurable until you actually hold the physical book. That could take months, or in my case years.
1. Cut your plan into daily steps.
2. Get out a calendar. Not an electronic calendar, an actually calendar you can physically write on with a pen.
3. Hang this calendar in a place where you will see it every day.

Step II – Write Down Your Fears

I believe the most powerful thing that can happen to you is having your dreams come true. It strengthens your faith and creates a process for achievement at the same time. But I think many people struggle with their dreams when they face rejection or when facing stillness. If they don’t get the job or go on the second date, that’s it!! They’re not going on another interview or dating anymore. Or if they’ve done what they need to do, hearing nothing is the worst thing. There is some saying about patience being a virtue.

This is why it is just as important to write down your fears. Number one it’s okay to be scared and two it allows you to figure out how you are going to overcome your obstacles. If you operate with an arrogance that achieving your dreams is going to be easy and without obstacles, you are going to take the hardest fall when faced with adversity.

Step II – Expect the Devil to Crash Your Party

When you pursue your dreams and trust in God, Satan gets angry. He wants your dreams to fail. But if you believe your dream will come with no adversity just because you pray, you are a fool. I believe that is why many people give up on their dreams. Instead of treating God as God, they treat him like a magic genie. They want to dream, snap their fingers, and *POOF*, they are living their dream. Good luck with that.

Step I- Write Down Your Dream

I don’t know if chasing your dreams is what you really want to do with your life, but I do hear a lot of people dream, but it’s kinda the same dream they’ve had their whole life, because they believe it is unobtainable. When I was homeless and living on my friend’s couch in Houston, my heart’s desire was to live in a 3-bedroom house, with a wraparound deck, with a waterfront view, and it had to have lots of bureaus (I had been living out of a suitcase for almost a year). I currently live in a waterfront, 3-bedroom house, which has a wraparound deck, and my room came with 3 bureaus.

How? Granted I had to move from Boston to Houston and back to Boston, along with being unemployed for 15 months and homeless for over 2 years, the first thing I did was write down what I wanted and read it to myself every day. Sometimes I had to read it once, and sometimes over twenty times, but I put it in writing. I didn’t post it all over the place and share it with everyone. I simply took the step of faith to believe and trust that God would allow my heart’s desire to come true.

I don’t call myself a religious person by any means.  Church isn’t really part of my family’s life.  I don’t worship God by any written rules.  I guess I don’t even consider myself spiritual, meaning other people have also defined what that is supposed to mean.  The way I describe myself, I’m a biblical Christian who has a relationship with God.  Meaning, I believe Jesus Christ died for my sins and rose on the third day, I believe in the bible, and I have my own relationship with God.

I make this clarification because I know only my closest friends that share this same belief system with me.  The only exception is they have found good church homes for their families.  For those I speak to outside of my realm of belief, I find hard to relate to.  These past few months have brought among tremendous change for me…all for the better.  But not only myself, but two of my closest friends.

No Time for Sick

By: Mia L. Hazlett
So about a month ago I thought I was having a heart attack. Seriously. My chest had a horrible squeezing pain and my breathing became strained. Most people would rush to 911 and get themselves to the nearest ER. As a single mother, that was not an option. I could still walk and talk, so I contemplated if I should go or wait until I got to work, I mean I do work for the emergency departments of one of Boston’s finest hospitals.

The pain worsened, so over the next hour I planned my trip to the hospital. I first called my daughters’ father. I always have and always will call him first to take care of his children if I cannot. He was at work and had to find coverage. I didn’t have that kind of time.

I called my cousins and didn’t get an answer. Then I called my brother. I held on to strength and tried not to cry as I told him I needed to go to the hospital. I went into the bedroom and told my girls to pack up their clothes and that their uncle was coming to get them. I then experienced a bittersweet moment. My oldest ordered her sister to pack her clothes, toothbrush, and to be sure she had her school stuff for the next day. I was proud I raised her to be so responsible, but saddened at the same time that she was the backup me. It’s not a child’s job to take care of her parent.
