Fightin' the Funk

O K...
So I understand that it's Monday...a beautiful DC Monday in fact for July... I have been in a funk all day and I received this message and just wanted to post it....

Facts,tidbits and thoughts to ponder about life:
WOWs (Words Of Wisdom)

- What you know determines how far you go. Your success will be determined by your knowledge. What do you know? Who do you hang with? Get people around you who know something. The Bible says we perish for lack of knowledge. People that understand great landscape will have greener grass. You are either strengthened or limited by your knowledge. GET IN THE KNOW.

-Rev Run

- Don’t take life so seriously. Life is a game. Play to win. If you loose today, there’s always tomorrow. When problems arise, try to figure it out but don’t complain. Get out there and work hard, have fun, and relax. It always works out in the end.

-Rev Run

- Learn to take responsibility for everything that happens in your life. The problem with many people is they think circumstances or people can block their blessings. But your blessings start and end with you. Say these words everyday and begin to free yourself: No one is doing anything to me but me.

-Rev Run

J.K thoughts:

No one is in control of you but you. We control how we act and react to things. We control how we treat people, how we think, how we eat, who we hang around, how much knowledge we gain and the list goes on. It is important that we understand that we have control of our lives and that which ever way we want life to go is our decision. So we must be careful of our thoughts because our thoughts become our actions, be careful of our actions because our actions become our character, be careful of our character because our character is who we are. My mother has always said in life there are a right and a wrong way to do things. Initially, you can get the same results by doing both but eventually when you’re doing things the wrong way you’ll have to start all over, so why not just do it the right way from the beginning. I have personally done both, however, God has revealed to me that there are no short cuts in life. God will take you back to the beginning over and over again until you do things the right way or you will have a life full of HELL. Honestly, when I do things the right way I am a better person. I sleep better not having to worry about whether things will go right and I really feel good knowing that it may have taken me longer to do something but I know that it won’t come back to haunt me. So because of that I only want people around me who will encourage me to do what is right and actually do the right things themselves. Therefore, when we see each other doing the wrong thing we can say stop and check yourself because you’re out of line.

Peace and Blessings


Now you may not agree with this totally, some, or none...take from it what you will and enjoy the rest of your day...

I love Rev Run's insightful lessons of the day. The man is crazy all day long but when he be in that bathtub pulling it all together in such powerful conclusions on his show, I find so much respect for him. Go 'head Rev.
