Happy New Year! Kinda hard to believe it’s 2018…we’re almost two decades into the 21st Century and I can’t help but wonder what will the next two decades look like. As the landscape of our world is in constant change climatically and innovations take us farther in technology, our society will continue to evolve…the question is “Are we prepared to evolve with it?” The current political climate is the way that it is because people are truly afraid…feeling uncertain about their future. Many are left with thoughts of despair, not knowing how they will “fit” into this evolving future that is not so far away in the horizon. They are very scared of the evolution that is taking place right in front of their eyes. Why? ….Because they aren’t ready! So my New Year’s Message to you is…If you’re not ready get ready, because change is surely coming! We can’t stop progress, so we might as well just get on board. The beginning of a new year is a great time to reflect and do a self-assessment. Let’s ask some important questions and confront our deepest fears. We should ask “what are we doing that we should not be doing?” We should ask “what steps are we actually taking to prepare for the changes that are taking place in our society on a global, national, and local level?” We should seek opportunities to constantly grow. We should be working to advance every chance we get and looking for opportunities that will assist with professional and personal development. For the segment of our society that is still stuck in the past and wants to go back to the way things were, understand that those days are gone. Let me be very clear, nothing in the past will return and even the redistribution of past energy will change its form. Remember this, instead of channeling frustrations into fueling fires of negativity in life; focus on what is real…which is CHANGE. Make no mistake about it a fruitful and productive year is always rooted in progress. We must accept evolution for what it is. This New Year hit the reset button in your life. Refresh and renew your thoughts, which can then be translated into actions. Dedicate some time to discarding the old and welcome the process of evolving mentally, physically, and spiritually. This way no matter what the years may bring you’ll be ready, willing and able to not only survive it, but also thrive in it! ~Doc Mel

“All talk and no action” has become quite the norm! Have you ever encountered people with BIG dreams but realize that they lack the necessary skills to make those dreams a reality? Or better yet, have you met that person that expects you to make their dreams a reality or may even expect you to finance their ideas? It can be very frustrating to know these types of people. Here’s what you can tell them:
Good morning, it’s Mother’s Day and it is the Lord’s Day! I hope everyone is out and about appreciating their mother’s today as well as everyday. Thank you for the mother’s who believe, trust and love us unconditionally because you are responsible for where we all are today!
On this day, for people who have lost their mother’s or grandmother’s who played the motherly role in their life I want you all to remember this quote by Dr. Seuss.
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
I know this quote hits home for me, being the 9th year that my grandmother isn’t here with me. However, I find comfort in knowing that my goal on earth is to make my mother and my grandmother proud and I will not stop until I fulfill that. Today think of all the people who ever told you, “no” or gave up on you and your mom was there to pick you up.
Think of the distasteful or disrespectful things that you might have done towards your mom and remember how she still embraced you each and every time because she never ceases to see the good in you. I believe mother’s are the rocks, they are the full circle, without them and without women in general there would not be a human race. Today I encourage you to tell your mother’s: “Dear mama, you are appreciated.”, and then show it each and every day in each and every way!
Springtime is officially here! It’s a new season and we should seek new beginnings… Life-strategies should burst with a new supply of energy as we aim for new successes. During the spring season we all know that April showers bring May flowers; and in our lives we should anticipate some rain as well. The question is, “Can you stand the rain?”…the rain that falls as the clouds turn gray amidst all of the thunder and lightning, that the storms of life can bring our way. READ MORE
To understand this should go without having to explain it, but it’s crazy just how confused some people really are. It’s highly offensive when people say something is a blessing (of special favor, mercy, or benefit) that is rooted in sin.
Have you ever sat back and observed successful people? There are very distinct differences between those who are successful and those who are unsuccessful. Here are some general observations that tend to be consistent: READ MORE
