Shameful History

Just by looking at this pic, without even reading its caption, I knew immediately that this pic and the posting would be about the gross mistreatment befell by the individuals pictured here.  It saddens me to read about the horric acts of man against another, just because of the color of their skin. What saddens me, even more, is that that same belief that was responsible for the befalling of these victims are still the type of thoughts that ponder in the minds of RACIST individuals today.

Thanks, “Moorbey’z Blog? for the history lesson, I have to say that I was quite surprised to read about Hitler’s role in bringing together the two Races.  But as they say,”You learn something new everyday,”–in this case, thanks to you!  LP

How to Stay Motivated — MakeItUltra™

As I browsed through the Reader I came across this lovely inspirational post written by “MakeItUltra,” and I am so very glad that I did. I found this post makes perfect sense, for as individuals who strive for a more fulfilling life, we set reasonable goals for ourselves but often do not set reasonable time periods in which to accomplish them.  (Reason being is that it is hard to filter in things that can happen or may need our immediate attention).

This article reminds us that life happens and that it is ok to prioritize, taking care of those things that need our immediate attention first, and going back to the goal we’ve set for ourselves at a later time.

The message I received from reading this post is that as long as we take steps towards what we want to accomplish, we should be proud and reward ourselves for those steps taken toward achieving our set goal.  Remembering to keep our eyes on the prize while remembering that, “Rome was not built in a day,” and to keep taking the necessary steps, even baby ones, will, in the end, lead us to become successful in achieving that what we had set out to achieve.

Thanks “MakeItUltra,” for the reminder! LP
