Happiness: Rise and Shine

The Occupy Wall Street Movement has taught me more about the many heart breaks we get in life.It could be losing to love, it could be losing a job and it could losing property. In 1893 G. B. Shaw asserted that,“people are always blaming their circumstance for what they are.I don’t believe in circumstances.The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them,make them”.The question of perseverance is a personal commitment and dedication to overcome adversity.No body does it better than yourself. Maya Angelou, an American author and poet; awarded over 30 honorary degrees and nominated for the Pulitzer Prize award recited this poem on And Still I Rise.Please enjoy; get inspired and motivated to change the circumstances around you for yourself.

    I do have oil in my living room (the oil of gladness Is 61); I do have gold in my back yard (the treasures of darkness are my inheritance Is 45); I do arise and shine for my light has come and the Glory of the living God is upon me (Is 61). The depth of joy to walk in God’s blueprint is indescribable … the challenges still come, and yet my God comes through for God is Good …
