I know, I know... I’ve been gone, yet again; this time for THREE WHOLE MONTHS! But let’s just pick back up where we left off and act like it never happened, because frankly I'm tired of giving you all excuses for my frequent disappearances...lol. Anyway, here's a [very] short post to get the juices flowing again!


"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."


If I had a dime for every time I heard this phrase, whether on tv, or even from my own mouth; I'd be filthy rich. Over and over again, it has been reiterated that in the case of a bad situation, you should flip it into something positive, be optimistic, and make sweet lemonade out of sour lemons that were hurled at you! Unfortunately, after years of thought and receiving a few proverbial lemons from time to time, I have realized that life doesn't always give you lemons; sometimes it gives you bricks. And unless you know something I don't know, there is no way to make lemonade out of bricks! BUT..I think I may know what they can be used for.


One brick at a time, those bricks are for building a foundation; a foundation that may one day be your empire! No matter the circumstance, don't give up; keep building brick-by-brick until you are victorious! Whether its continued progress in your career, or overcoming wrenches being thrown into your life, don't let minor setbacks define you! No matter how your year has gone thus far...it ain't over yet! You are capable of anything...and most importantly you are worthy of happiness and success!


continue to be great..& let's get to work!!
