I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
1 Peter 3:4
Worrying about what I’ve done is useless because it’s already done. Fretting over what is before me only makes me anxious and the situation more stressful than it need be. What I should be focusing on is what’s inside me. That’s what makes me who I am and how I handle life.
What’s in my heart and spirit is the driving force behind how I treat others and what kind of example I am for Christ.
When I see how much I dwell on my past mistakes, instead of zoning in on having a loving attitude and an open hand to all of God’s children, I get a queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach, because I usually know when I’m not doing what I should be doing.
Like too many people, I just don’t always make the right choice. Once I get my heart right with God, I keep my eyes on Jesus and see all the wonderful joys of being alive.
What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
(Romans 12:2 NLT)
Falling in love can be the best thing or worst thing that can happen to a man that’s ready to settle down
“Every couple needs to argue now and then. Just to prove that the relationship is strong enough to survive. Long-term relationships, the ones that matter, are all about weathering the peaks and the valleys.”
― Nicholas Sparks, Safe Haven
“First best is falling in love. Second best is being in love. Least best is falling out of love. But any of it is better than never having been in love.”
― Maya Angelou
It’s a couple things I have no desire for in a relationship:
*A Wifey – because a wifey isnt a wife. Males that aren’t mentally ready to make their girlfriend who’s wife material a wife call them wifey
*A Main Chick – because I’ll only have ONE woman in my life. Having a main means you have other people in a minor role
*A Side Chick – because the woman I marry will be all I need, desire and want
*A Baby Momma – because the woman that births my child will be my wife and carry my last name til death do us part

I know, I know, I know. its Monday. But let’s not be moping that it’s Monday and use this Monday to build on. Its a New Week, New Month and New Opportunity to get better. If you need any motivation to move forward just know that someone didn’t wake up this morning and you did. So take advantage of that ultimate blessing that the man upstairs gifted you with. and make the most and be grateful of this opportunity. Whomever you have ill feelings for, got done wrong by, owes you something or whatever the case maybe that you’re holding any type of grudge, let it go and move forward. You aren’t helping yourself grow by holding on to something that’s already happened. Only a fool trips over something that’s behind them. Have a great day, great week, great month and create great moments
“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 3:12-14 ESV
