Ever played Sims or better yet any game that allows you to create simulations and in that moment pretend to be someone/thing else?

Funny enough that’s the exact way life is but a lot of times it’s easier to agree that there are endless possibilities in a game than to accept that life offers the exact same benefits and more.  It could be that we are too afraid to believe it, too scared to live it or maybe just unexposed to the truth that life is not as scary as we make it.


Sometimes we end up putting fear in the drivers seat, letting it take the wheel.  We allow fear and all its ugly friends to pilot our drive, when we need to take control.   So yes, it’s hard.  Boo hoo! But what good thing is easy, really?

You want to ask a fine young thang out; you get sweaty palms.

You want to walk in and blow the mind of an interviewer, singling you out as the best candidate of the lot; your POUNDS

You want to walk in to your very strict dads company and explain that you would not be studying what he sent you to school for…lol…most African’s don’t even bother with this one…just save up till you can afford to study something else, but you will finish what you were sent to do.

Let’s face it.  Life isn’t a cake walk…but being afraid to live it will ruin you!

Whatever you do, make sure you’re the one steering your life in the direction you want it to go.  Have a voice in the journey of your life.  It’s not something you take a back seat on.
