Temps don't get benefits and jump offs don't get rings. Know thy worth.

* Temps are temporary seat fillers to do limited relationship activities with. They fill in the gap between relationships or until the person who is using the temp reunite with their ex.

Everybody should have that one true friend when sharing a current situation that they don't have to take back to the year of 1999.

You have to learn to let crazy people be crazy ALLLLLLL by themselves, if not you will become just as crazy as they are.

* * *

Two things people shouldn't put their mouths on without permission: Other people's marriages and other people's children. Karma is a fool and she sure is ugly.

If you take social media sites serious then you don't take the REAL world seriously enough!

* * *

You do not have to wait for the New Year to make a fresh start. Every day is a new day. That's why God created sunrises and sunsets.

Every breath you take defines a new moment. You don't have to wait until the calendar year gives you a fresh start. Today can be that day. This moment can be that moment. Your next breath can be your new start.

* * *

Never give up on who God said that you are meant to be because someone in your life doesn't want to let go of who you use to be.

Everyone has a struggle. Some people are just better at hiding theirs.

Parenting 101

Where you show out at is where you get beat at.

* As a child I never heard the words, "Wait until we get home" or "Wait until we leave this store". Children no longer fear their parents as they once did. That alone should create fear alone.

* * *

You have to press your children to learn the Bible JUST AS HARD as you press them to obtain a degree. Education will get you far but knowing where your help comes from will get you further!

* * *

Daddies tell your daughters that they are BEAUTIFUL every chance you get so they won't be so quick to believe it from a lame the first time they hear it.

* A lame is an individual that lacks individuality, creativity of one's self, and lack of ability to advance with females.

* * *

It's important to be a parent first and a friend second. When your child becomes an adult become their friend first and their parent second. You don't have to always be their friend but you ALWAYS need to be their parent.

* In order to keep a healthy relationship with your adult child you must acknowledge that they are now an adult. Learning to be your adult child's friend allows them to remain open to discuss their life with you in a way they would never do if they only saw you as just their parent.

When sending your children off to school with their books, pens, pencils, and paper make sure that is not all they have packed. Make sure they also have packed peace, love, humility, joy, self-respect, and self-esteem. As a parent when they enter school already having these things from home they won't seek to gain them outside of the home which is often improperly given.
