If you only seek to be more of yourself, you wouldn’t have to live up to everyone else’s expectations of you or what YOU perceive to be everyone’s expectation of who or what you should like. You could then focus on striving to be the best possible you. Focusing on your own God-given talents and sharing them with the world. Imagine the possibilities! Don’t just work on being yourself, continuously work on being your BEST self!!

Some people live for drama and wonder why things don’t go their way. You cannot claim that you’re a child of God, but in the next breath you’re comparing yourself to the next person, gossiping, being selfish, worried about what the next person is doing, vindictive, conniving, trying to make other people think your life is a fairytale or seem to be more than what it really is. You’re a child alright, a child of drama! The real problem is that you don’t have enough people around you that will keep it 100 with you. You know why? Because most people who are full of drama usually hang around other dramatic delusional people. Fake cAn’t recognize fake because they’re too worried about trying keep up and blend in with real. #getyourlife

We serve a supernatural God. He is not limited by your resources, your background, your education, or your nationality. He is not limited by your enemy nor your naysayers! Stop allowing people and situations to determine your strength and sway your direction! you were given this life because not only did God know you could handle it, but God also needed you to serve this purpose! The enemy has no power! That’s why he/she always has your name in their mouth! Unfortunately for them, they haven’t figured out their purpose, so they leech on to you because YOU validate them! Stop giving unnecessary people and situations energy and power!  If they aren’t contributing to your growth, there is no room for them in your life! ~ Tamara A. Jones

Remember misery is self inflicted and holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.  Sometimes you really have to take a hard look at yourself and realize that you could be the culprit of all of your problems. When you stop trying to blame everyone else for your problems and own up to your mistakes, you’ll be able to move on with your life. Until then, you will continue on this vicious cycle of trying to destroy everything in your path, when in reality, you are only destroying yourself. - Tamara A. Jones #marathonmindset

We all make choices, I choose to fight my own battles and stand firm for what I believe in.  I will never hide behind other people or make excuses for my behavior, but that’s just me and that’s what makes me different from most people. #marathonmindset

Probably not, so if it’s not absolutely necessary, doesn’t being you joy, or you’re not wildly passionate about it, you’re wasting your time - time that you can’t get back! #marathonmindset #stevejobs

Together we build, grow, and STAND strong. I may possess talents & skills that you do not possess or may not have acquired just yet and vise versa. We can teach and learn from one another.  Honestly there is nothing wrong with a little healthy competition. It helps to build character, drive, and determination; especially if you are competing to reach a goal because you’re ultimately competing to better yourself. As soon we become divided, we don’t just FALL, we FAIL one another and all the women who have worked so hard and sacrificed for women’s rights!

You may have lost it all; you may even be down to your last dollar and do not know how you’re going to survive tomorrow! The devil wants you to believe it’s over, he wants you to panic and do something stupid based on desperation or on your current negative emotions. I challenge you to do nothing about it…well not exactly, I challenge you to be still, pray on it and give whatever you are going through to God….Then do nothing else about it, don’t worry, don’t even think about it…continue on with your daily routine. Trust me, if it’s God’s will, you are not only going to survive, YOU’RE GOING TO WIN! - Tamara A. Jones #marathonmindset

Awwww my lil sis posted this today. Her message brought tears to my eyes. I’ve raised her since she was 3 years old. I was 19 with a 3 year old and a 7 year old and had no clue what being a parent was. I’d also vowed to not be a teen parent, but God had other plans for my life. So at 19 years old, I became a single teen parent to my siblings. It was a long hard journey, but we survived it! They are now 22 and 26 and although it was a huge sacrifice, if I had to do it all over again, I would! If you have the responsibility of taking care of your siblings and think it’s a thankless job. Hell, being a parent in general feels like a thankless job at times, and there will be days when you want to pull your hair out or be committed to a “lunatic asylum” just know that they too are going through their own mess, and trying to find their way, but it doesn’t last forever. Do the best you can and know that they love you and even if they do not know how to show you, they really do appreciate you! #marathonmindset
