This Is Dee

"Out of the huts of history's shame, I rise. Up from a past that's rooted in pain, I rise. I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide. Welling and swelling, I bear in the tide. Leaving behind nights of terror and fear. I rise. Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear. I rise. Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave. I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise. I rise. I rise.

I am filled with gratitude and humility because I know that right now, in this very moment, I have absolutely nothing to worry about; not even the air I breathe or the blood that pumps through my veins. I recognise and accept my blessings. I recognise and accept my trials. I am thankful for the moments of stillness, clarity and understanding. I count it all joy!
Comparison is a very foolish attitude, because each person is unique and incomparable. Once this understanding settles in you, jealousy disappears. Each is unique and incomparable. You are just yourself: nobody has ever been like you, and nobody will ever be like you. And you need not be like anybody else, either. God creates only originals; he does not believe in carbon copies.
If you have to lose yourself for someone to find you, then it’s not worth it. Be yourself. Love yourself. Always.

People will only do to you what YOU allow them to do to you. Set your boundaries. It’s your life. Take control. Be in control of your actions and others’ when it comes to things that concern YOU. I refuse to be anyone’s doormat or puppet. I’m not a robot; there aren’t any buttons to be pushed and I don’t follow anyone’s command but my Creator’s: God.

Put your positive vibe/energy out there so others can benefit from it too. It’s no use keeping it all to yourself

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.

-Judy Garland

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.
