Hot wire a car? I know I am learning new things but hello hot wiring a car in

"Hell, no! I won't be happy unless s/he changes first."ACIM I have been practicing something. Changing my state of mind on the spot, just to see this power that I was told that I have been born with. Acknowledging the feeling and then making a decision to change the state Hello................... the thing works The key is acceptance then choice The clarity is in the midst of the confusion The love is in the midst of the conflict Do you have the courage to override , to keep moving forward If you just keep moving forward, the fear will subside, the doubt will subside don't worry about getting rid of it, you can't get rid of thought, it cannot be undone But you don't have to activate it, downloaded it or activate it Deborah L Johnson says - "your doubt and fear does not have to t…
So when you’re feeling grounded, rooted, and strong, really think about to whom you can give your strength. The beautiful thing about it is that giving it away doesn’t deplete you, it reinforces your power, bringing light to yourself and to the person who needs it. So, figure out who needs your strength today and shine a bit of love their way. You’ll become stronger. Maxi McCoy
I was billed to speak at the International Women's Day Celebration at the Hyatt Regency for ACCA Caribbean - the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants, I was quite nervous, but determined to give it my all and all
The host for the day was one of the top morning show TV hosts in the country and she sat next to me. We did the small talk and she introduced me to the audience, I went up did my thing and came off the stage where she pulled me aside,
"I want you on my show"
"When can you come?"
"Can you come this week?"
