Waging Peace!

“The real champions are not always those who wage war, or those who pick up arms and go forth to battle in order that they be heard.

The real champions are those who wage peace. Those ones that battle their circumstances, their inner demons, and overcome with the weapons of their minds.”

Attaining Success?

“If attaining a bright and successful future required just one full day of focus and purposefulness, everyone would be wildly successful.

However, the sad truth is that success requires and involves multiple, sometimes miserable moments of little yet correct choices. 

Success is really just the sum of usually small but mighty decisions made and then executed.”

You Dramatic Creature

“Each time winter comes, we swear it is the coldest we have ever felt. Each time summer arrives, we confess it is the worst yet. Each morning our alarm rings, we are sure it is the loudest ever. Each time life hits, we assume we are dying. 

Perhaps we humans are far more naturally dramatic creatures than we give ourselves credit for.”

Adulthood

“At some point, we come to recognize that adulthood is not about the freedom to do and undo as we please. Rather, adulthood is a call to realization.

Realizing that your decisions now can affect a hundred generations ahead of you. Realizing that your habits now can seep into your blood, and spread across your generational bloodline like wild fire.”

~ Sandra C. Obiora

I am like…

“I am like a moth to the flame of a beautiful soul.

A bee to the scent of a flowering heart.

A predator to the prey of negativity

A David to the Goliath of helplessness.

A Paul to the ministry of repentance.

A triumphant student to the lessons of life.

Water to the wilderness of the dying mind.”

~ Sandra C. Obiora
