Some years ago a young boy, who we will name Smiley for now, was born into a beautiful family. A father who would give it all just so his son could have the best life possible, a mother who’s prayers faithful love to the Lord and a heart filled with unconditional love. All that was enough for the young boy to get through birth after doctors had already diagnosed the worst for him. Everything from ‘may never walk’ to ‘may have learning disabilities’ to even ‘not live many years’. Dispite all of that his parents chose to accept him and love him because they knew God had spoken to them in their hearts telling them that one day his story will be told and many would see the wonderful things He had done in his life. ‘Smiley’ was a happy boy he never saw the negative of things but instead always tried to find the positive. After just 2 years or so Smiley began to take his first steps and his mom overjoyed and in tears called his father to tell him of the good news. It was such a happy joyful time. Soon after started physical therapy to strengthen his legs and when it was just enough Smiley adjusted to life with leg braces for balance. He later when on to attend school and did not develop any learning disabilities. Independance was always something Smiley got use to as far as taking care of himself because of the teachings of his parents. He never required any home health aides his motto was ‘i can do it’. But he was never alone God was always there supporting him. The years went on and the young boy became a young man ! He graduated High School and went on to attain a Certification in Computer Processing and most recent a license in Pharmacy Tech. Smiley’s mother went on to rest with the Lord when Smiley was 29 and although the years that followed were very difficult his father stood by his side. Six years later wedding bells rung and Smiley was walking down the aisle with his soon to be bride !! I bet you want to know who this Smiley is ? Well, its me ! The author of this post, Isaias and what is my perfect gift? Having a chance at life I am forever grateful to the Lord.
Do you ever feel like you have crashed in life or in a different term defeated ? Well raise your head up high once again because i have good news you are not defeated but instead just having a setback. The setback leaves room for you to grow so you can gain the strength you need to move ahead in life !! I know you may think or feel like you’re dragging or like about to give up but thats what life wants to see that you wont move into success but instead stay stagnant. Learn from your setback build from that and bring forth success.
Around 50 million people in the world have epilepsy. At the age of 15 I became one of those statistical numbers. Most of us are controlled by either treatment (medication) and others,if neurologist are able to locate the exact location of the disturbance, can be operated on and not have them anymore. Many people live afraid since sometimes these neurological disturbances can come without warning so some lives can be put on hold. I will be honest i was one of those who felt fear and put certain things of my life on pause. Driving was one thing I had a hard time achieving. Thoughts of ‘what would happen if i got behind the wheel’ or even like what would happen if i was ever at work and i had a seizure ? Well im here to tell you that it did happen at work. It was quite painful as i hurt my arm and gave myself a concussion. I was out of work for 3 weeks. Finally i said i need to go back i cant stay at home all day. But here is the funny part of this story. Where some might see it as a curse i see it as a blessing. Without that moment happening to me i never would have discovered my hidden talents of making small business logos or graphics heck or even that i can produce my own music. For that i thank God. With all this i say dont ever think about the why this or why that ? Instead think about how i will use the moment to my advantage!!! Keep moving forward!!!
Every year on the first Sunday of May, we celebrate Mother’s day ! Its a day we come together as a family and celebrate all they do for us. They gave birth to us, carried us for nine months, and helped us get those good grades on our homework. To those who dont have their mothers on this day know that there is a plan for everything in life. I learned that the hard way when my mothers name was called into heaven. Sometimes there are events that happen to us in our lives that we do not understand but go along with what has to happen in our life “tomorrow”. Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers out there, you deserve this day !!
The day we have all been waiting for since the start of the NFL season has finally arrived. This year its a bit different than what we have been use to for many years which was to see Tom Brady kick some butt. I never was a big fan of his however I can honestly say he played hard in every game and did what he was paid to do which was win games. Now as he rides off into the sunset with 7 rings and that being the perfect number its the best time to call it a career. A new generation of Quarterbacks will take the stage and follow in what the greats of yester year have created. Tonight I wish the Rams all the best and I wish the Bengals the best too. May the best team win.
One of the best things you can do while we fight this on going war of the pandemic is to have yourself an adventure. Go out enjoy yourself take a walk by the beach go see a movie. The idea is to distract your mind from whats going on and at the same time have fun. Dont let depression become your best friend or ally instead look to fight it.
Waking up every morning is a gift its a present we get after all we have done and been through in the past (yesterday) its a chance to make the rights where you have done wrong. The way i do this is by having a fresh cup of coffee, robust and full of amazing flavors. The aromas of the mixed flavors such as dark chocolate and some cases even fruits. The burst of flavors mixed together comes off as bitter and then sweet to both wake you up then relax you in such a way that you will feel great the rest of the day.
