NEVER GIVE UP
Motivational Video

Limits are an illusion.   Don’t let ANYONE get in the way of your dreams.    Even if people laugh at your dream or make a remark that you don’t agree with – FOCUS.   You deserve to follow your dreams.    Get to know yourself.    What do you love?

For years, I have been strengthening my mind.   It has taken a lot of work.   There were many times when it was tough but I got back up.   That is what it is all about – getting back up.   We all can fall but you cannot stay down.   Your mind can lift you even if you don’t feel the strength to get up.  Mind muscle.

Nobody knows your struggles.    Only you.   Only you can fight for what you want.   Only you can make a decision today to stop focusing on external factors and focus on you.   It doesn’t matter where you came from.   It doesn’t matter how much education you have.   It doesn’t matter what you think you are lacking.   Don’t compare yourself to others and put yourself down because you are not where they are.

Today, decide what you want.

  1.  Where are you today?
  2. Where do you want to be?
  3. How are you going to get there?

Hard Times

Believe in you.   That is all you need.  YOU are good enough despite your past, despite your negative self talk.

You are perfectly imperfect and that is ok.

Homeless man called a bum, this will change your perspective

I watched this video last year and it really touched my heart.   We never know where we will end up in life.   Where our journey will take us.

I was raised with not a lot of money.   My dad worked so hard to provide and put food on the table.    I saw how both my mom and my dad struggled at times but they did it.   My sister and I will forever be grateful.

Sometimes people deserve a chance.   A chance to start over.

We sometimes take things for granted like the bed we sleep in, the food we eat, the bathroom we shower in.   Others don’t have that privilege.    At times we complain about the little things that are insignificant.

We don’t know what we don’t know.   If we have never walked in a person’s shoes how would we know what that person goes through?   This man in the video says it is humiliating to ask for money.   Imagine being in his shoes.   How do you get a job when you have no place to live or a phone or even clean clothes?

I’ve read a lot of stories of homeless people that were actually not homeless and made a lot of money by conning people into believing that they were homeless.    No wonder some people don’t give to the homeless because of these individuals that were con artist.

My grandma taught me a life lesson one day when i was real young.   She gave this man that looked drunk money and I asked her “Why did you give him money?  He probably will get more drunk” and she said “You do not know that man’s story and I am giving him money because I want to.   What he does with it is his choice.”  She impacted me because it is true everyone has a story and everyone deserves to not be judged.   We sometimes take a risk if we give money to a stranger but I usually am ok with taking that risk.   I hope in my heart that if I give a person money that they use it for what they need at that moment in their lives.

Watch this video.   Life is not easy.   We all have a  story.   One day I will give tons of money to the homeless.   I can’t wait for that day!

Glorious (feat. Skylar Grey)

Macklemore

Lyrics

You know I’m back like I never left (I never left)
Another sprint, another step (another step)
Another day, another breath (another breath)
Been chasing dreams, but I never slept (I never slept)

I got a new attitude and a lease on life
And some peace of mind
Seek and I find I can sleep when I die
Wanna piece of the pie, grab the keys to the ride
And shit I’m straight
I’m on my wave, I’m on my wave
Get out my wake, I’m running late, what can I say?
I heard you die twice, once when they bury you in the grave
And the second time is the last time that somebody mentions your name
So when I leave here on this earth, did I take more than I gave?
Did I look out for the people or did I do it all for fame?
Legend, it’s exodus searching for euphoria
Trudging through the mud to find the present, no ignoring us
Got 20, 000 deep off in the street like we some warriors
My mama told me never bow your head, woo!

I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I was born for this, born for this
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious

I’m feeling glorious
The crib looking Victorian (oh yes it is)
You know that we been going in (been going in)
Since we hopped out that Delorean (Delorean, yeah we win)

En garde, things are just things
They don’t make you who you are
Can’t pack up a U-Haul and take it with you when you’re gone
We posted on the porch, my family’s glasses to the stars
My grandma smiling down on me like woo, that boy got bars
Okay, okay, yes I do
I said amen and hallelujah, let me testify too
Another morning, a morning, don’t let self get in my way
I got my breath, I got my faith and I remember why I came

I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I was born for this, born for this
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious

We gon’ be alright, put that on my life
When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
We’re planting a flag they don’t understand
The world is up for grabs (Hey, hey, hey)
We gon’ be alright, put that on my life
When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
We’re planting a flag they don’t understand
The world is up for grabs

I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I was born for this, born for this
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious

Steve Jobs Stanford
Commencement Speech 2005
Connecting the Dots
Love and Loss
Death

This video is a must watch.   You see, sometimes in life we have no idea why we are put in situations or why we learn what we learn.   We sometimes go through a painful situation and don’t realize that that very painful situation has taught us a lesson we will never forget.   It’s amazing that by us connecting the dots we realize that it wasn’t by accident.    We may not be able to see it at the very moment we are experiencing the pain but as Steve Jobs said “You connect the dots looking backwards”.

When you think of Steve Jobs, you may have thought of this very successful rich man but when you heard him speak, you realized that he was human just like everyone of us.    Even his biological mom decided to give him up so that he would have college graduate parents yet life has a funny way of working itself out by giving him parents that did not graduate from college and high school.    The lawyer parents his mom thought he was going to have decided they wanted a girl last minute.    How all of this would have changed everything.

Connecting the Dots – sometimes we don’t realize how things will come together.   You connect the dots looking backwards.    Trust the process.

Love and Loss – Loving what you do and losing it.   Starting over is okay.    Rejection sometimes teaches you what you cannot learn if you are always successful.   Even if you are successful, failure or rejection can make you even better than you were before.   You just can’t quit.

Death – living as if everyday is your last and questioning if you are happy or doing what you love will keep you focused.

-Rosemary

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinion drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. -Steve Jobs

Eye of the Tiger – Rocky

“LYRICS

Rising up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hanging tough, staying hungry
They stack the odds still we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive

It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger

Rising up, straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I’m not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger”

Lose Yourself Eminem

“Lyrics

Look
If you had
One shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?

Yo
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti
He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin’
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won’t come out
He’s chokin’, how, everybody’s jokin’ now
The clocks run out, times up, over, blaow!
Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He’s so mad, but he won’t give up that easy? No
He won’t have it, he knows his whole back city’s ropes
It don’t matter, he’s dope, he knows that, but he’s broke
He’s so stacked that he knows, when he goes back to his mobile home, that’s when its
Back to the lab again yo, this whole rhapsody
He better go capture this moment and hope it don’t pass him

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better

The souls escaping, through this hole that its gaping
This world is mine for the taking
Make me king, as we move toward a, new world order
A normal life is borin’, but super stardom’s close to post mortem
It only grows harder, only grows hotter
He blows us all over these hoes is all on him
Coast to coast shows, he’s known as the globetrotter
Lonely roads, God only knows, he’s grown farther from home, he’s no father
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
But hold your nose ’cause here goes the cold water
His hoes don’t want him no mo, he’s cold product
They moved on to the next schmo who flows, he nose dove and sold nada
So the soap opera is told and unfolds, I suppose it’s old partna, but the beat goes on
Da da dumb da dumb da da

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better

No more games, I’m a change what you call rage
Tear this motherfuckin’ roof off like two dogs caged
I was playin’ in the beginnin’, the mood all changed
I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhymin’ and stepwritin’ the next cipher
Best believe somebody’s payin’ the pied piper
All the pain inside amplified by the
Fact that I can’t get by with my nine to
Five and I can’t provide the right type of
Life for my family ’cause man, these God damn food stamps don’t buy diapers
And its no movie, there’s no Mekhi Phifer
This is my life and these times are so hard
And it’s getting even harder tryin’ to feed and water my seed, plus
See dishonor caught up between bein’ a father and a prima-donna
Baby mama drama screamin’ on and too much
For me to want to say in one spot, another jam or not
Has gotten me to the point, I’m like a snail I’ve got
To formulate a plot fore I end up in jail or shot
Success is my only motherfuckin’ option, failures not
Mom, I love you, but this trail has got to go, I cannot grow old in Salem’s lot
So here I go is my shot
Feet fail me not ’cause maybe the only opportunity that I got

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better

You can do anything you set your mind to, man”

Trauma-Related Disorders – PTSD

Trauma-Related Disorders: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder & Acute Stress Disorder – Video & Lesson Transcript | Study.com

History is full of bizarre reports. Ancient soldiers would go blind despite no physical injury. Shakespeare wrote of maladies afflicting warriors and kings, where their mind began to churn and broil without any injury. In the U.S. Civil War, many of the soldiers coming home had difficulties in the field or returning to their normal lives.
