I. C. U. (I Crave for Underestimation)

A wise friend of mine and a loyal fan of my hubby’s was totally inspired by his music project he had done four years ago. The two of Songbird’s projects that inspired her were “Underestimated” and “I.C.U”. It was so fascinating to her that she created that for my very own business because mainly that’s what my passion is for, motivating people throughout every day life.

quoteI find that real amazing enough for me to give share some tea to that! Here’s the question: Have you ever wonder why you must crave for underestimation in order to feed your motivation? It’s very simple. Your dreams are as hungry as your demons, so it’s best to make sure you’re feeding the right ones. People need dreams, they are as much nourished in them as food. That way, you must feed your faith and all your fears will starve to death, which specifically explains why you should NEVER let your fear decide your faith or your future so you must always stay hungry.

You have to realize that there will always be someone cuter than you, smarter than you, with more hustle than you, more privileged than you!!! You have to want it more than anyone in the world taking no days off knowing that it’s some that wants to take your place!

To really make it crystal clear…

Whenever you feel underestimated, you’ll need to crave for something more than anything you can think of and that is the Word of God. You don’t need to sit around and eating junk food of the world because it won’t do you any good at all. I mean, You Are What You Eat: Reminded to desire the pure word of God instead of the junk food of the flesh. God guides your diet. Left to yourself, you would eat junk food. God feeds you on the diet of His Word.

Just imagine God is speaking 5 words to you: “Forget the world. Remember Me.” That’s HIS way of letting you know that He is preparing a great feast before you and all who have underestimated you will be present to watch you eat. Real Talk!!

What Is My DEFINITION of a TRUE FRIENDSHIP???

I define the true meaning of a true friend as being honest, faithful, kindhearted, and true to others just like you’d be to yourself. The only way for me to be a true friend in God’s way is to never be two-faced, which means I can do three things: Love God and others, trust God and a few, and Obey God and do no wrong to anyone.

To prove the point, I’m an honest person and I’ve learned a valuable lesson about true friendship. God placed us in a catergory of precious and semi precious stones. Some individuals are likes diamonds and some are like cubic zirconias. Regardless if its long distance friendship or not, never ignore who cares for you because one day you’ll come to realize that you have lost a diamond while you were busy collecting stones.

In closing, here’s a little reminder for you to remember:
When you got something good, you hold on to it. When you got something bad, you let it go.
Don’t cling on to cubic zirconia because you can simply find them anywhere. Cling on to diamonds because that God’s way of sending the kinds of friends He’d want you to have so be very careful of what friends you make.

Watch out for commercial green tea beverages–

Value Yourself In Life

Value the people who sacrifice something for you, because that little something might be their everything. Until you value yourself, you will never value your time, and until you value your time, you will never do anything with it. If you understand the value of nothing, you don’t need to know the price of everything. Value yourself enough to choose to be with someone who wants you as much as you want them. If you really put a small value upon yourself,rest assured that the world will not raise your price. Don’t think yourself unfortunate. The hard way is the only way that truly teaches. Learn to see the value in the burdens you’ve received. Disappointments turn to failures when we don’t recognize their value. Learn from every mistake. Make sure you don’t start seeing yourself through the eyes of those who don’t value you. Know your worth even if they don’t.

But when it comes to the ONE the created you, here’s how you really value yourself.

Love and value yourself. You are God’s creation and He paid a dear price for you to be alive today. When you know your worth in God you’ll begin to see yourself differently, you’ll realize your value and not settle for less.Never sell yourself short, you are of high value to God and always loved by Him 24/7 everyday all day, forever. You need to value yourself more and be confident that God will provide if you ask him to provide. Don’t undervalue yourself. Your worth is what you are worth to God. Jesus died for you. You are of infinite value. Remember, God will be the one to show you how to find and value yourself.

How Successful People Spend Their Weekend

This is easier said than done, so here’s some help. The following list contains 10 things that successful people do to find balance on the weekend and to come into work at 110% on Monday morning.

1. They Wake Up at the Same Time

It’s tempting to sleep in on the weekend to catch up on your sleep. Though it feels good temporarily, having an inconsistent wake-up time disturbs your circadian rhythm. Your body cycles through an elaborate series of sleep phases in order for you to wake up rested and refreshed. One of these phases involves preparing your mind to be awake and alert, which is why people often wake up just before their alarm clock goes off (the brain is trained and ready). When you sleep past your regular wake-up time on the weekend, you end up feeling groggy and tired. This isn’t just disruptive to your day off, it also makes you less productive on Monday because your brain isn’t ready to wake up at your regular time. If you need to catch up on sleep, just go to bed earlier.

2. They Designate Mornings as Me Time

It can be difficult to get time to yourself on the weekends, especially if you have family. Finding a way to engage in an activity you’re passionate about first thing in the morning can pay massive dividends in happiness and cleanliness of mind. It’s also a great way to perfect your circadian rhythm by forcing yourself to wake up at the same time you do on weekdays. Your mind achieves peak performance two-to-four hours after you wake up, so get up early to do something physical, and then sit down and engage in something mental while your mind is at its peak.

3. They Schedule Micro-Adventures

Buy tickets to a concert or play, or get reservations for that cool new hotel that just opened downtown. Instead of running on a treadmill, plan a hike. Try something you haven’t done before or perhaps something you haven’t done in a long time. Studies show that anticipating something good to come is a significant part of what makes the activity pleasurable. Knowing that you have something interesting planned for Saturday will not only be fun come Saturday, but it will significantly improve your mood throughout the week.

4. They Pursue a Passion

You might be surprised what happens when you pursue something you’re passionate about on weekends. Indulging your passions is a great way to escape stress and to open your mind to new ways of thinking. Things like playing music, reading, writing, painting, or even playing catch with your kids can help stimulate different modes of thought that can reap huge dividends over the coming week.

5. They Disconnect

Disconnecting is the most important weekend strategy on this list, because if you can’t find a way to remove yourself electronically from your work Friday evening through Monday morning, then you’ve never really left work.

Making yourself available to your work 24/7 exposes you to a constant barrage of stressors that prevent you from refocusing and recharging. If taking the entire weekend off handling work e-mails and calls isn’t realistic, try designating specific times on Saturday and Sunday for checking e-mails and responding to voicemails. For example, check your messages on Saturday afternoon while your kids are getting a haircut and on Sunday evenings after dinner. Scheduling short blocks of time will alleviate stress without sacrificing availability.

6. They Minimize Chores

Chores have a funny habit of completely taking over your weekends. When this happens, you lose the opportunity to relax and reflect. What’s worse is that a lot of chores feel like work, and if you spend all weekend doing them, you just put in a seven-day workweek. To keep this from happening, you need to schedule your chores like you would anything else during the week, and if you don’t complete them during the allotted time, you move on and finish them the following weekend.

7. They Exercise

No time to exercise during the week? You have 48 hours every weekend to make it happen. Getting your body moving for as little as 10 minutes releases GABA, a soothing neurotransmitter that reduces stress. Exercise is also a great way to come up with new ideas. Innovators and other successful people know that being outdoors often sparks creativity.

I know that a lot of my best ideas come to me while I’m surfing. While you’re out in the ocean, the combination of invigorating activity and beautiful scenery creates the perfect environment for an influx of creativity. Whether you’re running, cycling, or gardening, exercise leads to endorphin-fueled introspection. The key is to find a physical activity that does this for you and then to make it an important part of your weekend routine.

8. They Reflect

Weekly reflection is a powerful tool for improvement. Use the weekend to contemplate the larger forces that are shaping your industry, your organization, and your job. Without the distractions of Monday to Friday busy work, you should be able to see things in a whole new light. Use this insight to alter your approach to the coming week, improving the efficiency and efficacy of your work.

9. They Spend Quality Time with Family

Spending quality time with your family on the weekend is essential if you want to recharge and relax. Family time on the weekend is so important to Spencer Rascoff that he flies home for the weekend, no matter how far away he is, even if he has to be in the same city the following week. Weekdays are so hectic that the entire week can fly by with little quality family time. Don’t let this bleed into your weekends. Take your kids to the park, take your spouse to his or her favorite restaurant, and go visit your parents. You’ll be glad you did.

10. They Prepare for the Upcoming Week

The weekend is a great time to spend a few moments planning your upcoming week. As little as 30 minutes of planning can yield significant gains in productivity and reduced stress. The week feels a lot more manageable when you go into it with a plan because all you have to do is execute it.
