In the Meantime…

Awareness is the first step in moving forward and/or making changes. Therefore, I always try to keep my mind focused on the present moment.  In doing so, my frequent thought is always on where I am in life in comparison to where I want to be. Currently, I know I am in special place within my journey…

I am right above the starting level but not quite close to the end, my goals…. I haven’t completely figured out my purpose but I am aware of what makes me happy. I am not stuck but I do sometimes feel unsure of my decisions.

So until things fully come together, this part of my life I will call, “in the meantime”…

I’ve heard many pastors say “in life you must to know what season you’re in”. I now understand why knowing your season is important because my “in the meantime” could be different from yours. This could possibly be my time to do as much research as I can, on all the endeavors I want to embark. For another, their “in the meantime” could consist of working and saving, tests and testimonies or just having patience in general.

If you don’t know what phase you’re in, you won’t know how to act nor react to the circumstances and situations of your life. You’ll just be going through them but you may miss key points which were meant to help you.

I decided in this stage of my life to use my time to get ready. I will plan for whatever it is I am expecting.“It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.”~Whitney Young, Jr. I will also be grateful in advance. I will make choices which will benefit me right now and not have everything I do only be profitable in the future because tomorrow is not promised.  I will support others and help them along their way, the best way I know how. I will be happy and make use of all my resources and continue to maintain good relationships. Lastly, I will continue to work on me.

Until all your dreams and aspirations come true, what will you be doing “in the meantime”?….

Talk to Someone

The surface is everything we see when we open our eyes. It is everything I see. The outside since it is visible, can also easily be labeled because it stems from a point of view. However, when you want to go deeper things get a bit more complicated, particularly when dealing with people.

What if you have encouraging words that could change someone’s life and/or affect their next decision, in a positive way… how would you know?

If you only look at the exterior of a person and never speak to them, how would you know exactly what’s going on internally? Don’t depend on a smile because those can and will be fake.  You can’t rely on an “I’m okay” because that is a generic response.

For example, a car can appear shiny and gorgeous from the outside but when you actually try to drive it, it may not be able to move. You have to check the inside and make sure the engine is right. As beautiful as the car is, if the inside is screwed up, the car is useless.

Therefore, once a week, I challenge you to seek out at least one person and make it you’re mission to converse with them. Whether it is friend, family or stranger, see what they are about. You may discover you have more similarities than you thought. You may even have advice that could change a person’s entire situation and because you never spoke it, they never heard and the life changing took so long!

Go deeper than the obvious and you’ll be surprised! Everyone has a story, but not many people have someone to tell it to.

Posted under Ohemma’s Words, (https://ohemmawrites.com/ohemmas-words/) find a poem, titled “An Alliance”, written in 2005.

Lastly, “It is Written…” (https://ohemmawrites.com/it-is-written/ ) debuts poetry from Sabrina D. Phillips, titled “The Perfect Friend”. One of my new favorites!

As always,

What YOU Deserve…

It’s easy to take what you can get. However patience brings about many good things. Sometimes you have to forget what you want and remember what you deserve. You can search for a person, place or thing to bring you happiness but you deserve to have everything that is good, in search of you.  We often forget who we are while in a fast-paced world and we begin to chase everything. Trying to make the best out of any situation. However, not all situations are the best for us.  Some situations are a part of your destiny but they are not your destination.

DID YOU KNOW ….

  • You have the right to be free, to choose yourself first.
  • You are worthy of respect and appreciation.
  • You are great & that you truly DESERVE the best of what life has to offer….

There’s just one catch.  You have to put in the work!  And once you do, no one will ever be able to tell you what you’ve earned. You will know and have it the other way around.

There’s something that you’ve always wanted, that you’ve dreamed about, and deep in your heart you are certain of. It has your name on it and you will receive it because it’s already yours. It’s just a matter of time.

Don’t take what you can get. Don’t settle! Don’t grab, steal, or lure any person, place or thing. Always remember what you deserve 🙂
