How Everyday Decisions We Make Shape Our Destiny

destiny.jpgbutterfly-effect-lifechoices_346183847The future we desire and want has yet to be shaped.As we often forget the power we possess in our everyday decisions that we make to shape our destiny. The decision we make will create the life we are living currently, so it becomes necessary for us to find out the meaningful answers to crucial questions for being able to make a wise decision. Decision-making requires an open approach that encompasses all aspects, an attitude that looks at every perspective and a broad vision that considers every possibility no matter how big or small it is. In short, there are neither shortcuts nor easy formulas for ethical decision-making

So what does decision-making means? When we have to do something, but we are not sure of how, and what to do, we stand at the crossroads of decision-making. The key to making a wise decision is the ability to select the right course of action and ask the right questions. Once we grow into adulthood everything in your life, business and personal exist so when it becomes a matter of our own lives; we need to gather up the courage to take decisions on our own.

When we walk on the straight path, it is possible to choice the best decision for us. However, if we place the decision-making process in the hands of others it becomes the outcome of a bad decision. Moreover, why put the right of decision-making in the hand of others, after all, for how long can we ask others to guide us through the right decision? Eventually, we have to learn to make decisions by our own selves as life is too long, and we cannot depend on others.

When it becomes a matter of our own lives, we need to gather up the courage to take decisions on our own. However, the big question is how do we shape a life, so it becomes alive and real for us. There are many ways we can shape our destiny, but our first step is to start by knowing what we want from life. Then visualize the life you want and spend much time developing your life’s path.

What to do when the path gets bumpy to make sure you use your power of choices wisely

Throughout our everyday lives, we are faced with countless choices and those choosing is shaped by the choices we make besides there may be times when we make choices that cause our life’s path to be like a series of hills. When we choose or when we are not sure if we want hills, valleys or the straight path the passageway becomes confusing, unbalance, and very bumpy. After making a decision like these, we should stop and examine the choices we made and identified new opportunities that will bring us back to the original path.

People often spend lots of time creating the picture-perfect path for themselves. However, they fail to remember three things. There is no such thing as a perfect path, the road we are creating can become bumpy and very uncomfortable if we make the wrong decision along the way. Third and most important remember you ultimately make the final choice regarding your values and how you balance your life’s path.

Demystifying Math Struggles & Identifying Strategies to Help

teaching mathSome children excel in every class, but math has a way of getting the best of them. This is for the reason that the hardest subject most teachers have to teach by the book is Mathematics. While some children might be excelling at math; several may be failing, and others might just be able to pass the requirements. Nonetheless, teaching math effectively means communicating in many different ways to have the skills and modes of thinking. It is vital to identify all math struggles and then find different strategies to make sure children learn math.

Since Math is a hard subject for most children, a teacher cannot let the students just follow a textbook, as this is only part of the information needed to solve the Math problems correctly.

A question some teachers might want to ask themselves when it comes to teaching; should I follow the same traditional method while teaching math to all children? All educators should strive to teach for understanding of the mathematical concepts. Understanding, as I am sure most realize, it does not always come immediately, it may even take several grasps but with determination and the right teaching methods, a child will finally get an understanding. Teaching math to kids is very hard to learn even when teachers are trying to explain a simple solution to a math problem.

Math is a difficult subject it is extremely different from English or Science – or even History – for the reason that Math is the merely subject that distributes two characteristics:

1. Students must begin at the beginning and continue to create from what they have learned in the prior lesson.

2. There is no such thing as a partially correct answer; an answer is 100% right or 100% wrong.

In classes such as History, students can start at anywhere and study just that individual part of the subject. In English, there are some degrees of correctness and estimations as it may differ as to what is correct. But not in Math: Math is exact and requires precise execution. The answers are either right or wrong.

Who am I?I am a Girl with a Mind, a Woman with an Attitude & a Lady with Class.

Who am II am not perfect. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life, but I’m happy to be me. I’ve made good decisions and bad decisions, I’ve made choices that were wrong, but I am honest, loving and happy because I’m me. Sometimes I talked when I should be listening; however, I’ve learned to know when to speak and when to be quiet. I never try to be anything that I am not, and I am not here to impress anyone. Who am I? I’m me, discovering me, on my journey.

I am my mother’s daughter. The image of who she was and how she raised me: to strive, to fight, to stand firm, and if I fall I get back up and be all I can be. My mother still is and always will be my biggest fan, and I’m proud to say that she was somebody dear to me, unique as well as strong. I’ve got friends that I know where they stand when I need anything, and they know just where I stand whenever anything goes wrong with them. So when I make a mistake they know just how to help me understand that nothing can change who I am. It’s all a part of who I am because I’ll be alright, nothing can change who I am, I’m still discovering me, I’m me, on my journey.

I am a one-in-a-million kind of intelligent, young lady who comes only once in a lifetime. I am loyal to friends and family; they know I will be there until the end. I don’t fear the enemy that desires to destroy me. I stand firm, stay strong and overcome. I know how to smile when I’m crying inside. As a matter of fact, the smile on my face is my pick-me-up. Some people want more than what they have, and others feel they are getting less. I am grateful for my friends, family and what I have, that’s who I am, and I’m me, discovering me, on my journey.

If I could go back in time and change my life, I wouldn’t change a thing for the simple fact that I gained knowledge from all my mistakes. Because life’s experience gave me the ability to be the best of who I am. I am happy, I accept Christ in my life, and I am who I am. Some people are the best at what they do, some are average, and others are just getting by. But none of them is, or ever can be me. I am one of a kind. So I never compare myself to other people. I can’t be them, and they cannot be me. That’s who I am, I’m just me, discovering me, on my journey.

The eyes are useless when the mind is blind.

1_eyes-useless-mind-blindMeandering down the promenade alone, peering at the grassy greens I go by and seeking desperately for the haven of Life. I do not know how I attained this distance, but I cling to the hope that I will find my way. Nothing familiar has entered my view; my ears have yet to encounter familiar sounds, and my heart, defiantly, opposes my hope and whispers to me that I am still hopelessly far. I have been traveling for such a long time without a clear picture of my ultimate destination that I am frightened, exposed, and vulnerable. I cringe at the thought of taking a step, yet I am horrified at the prospect of not moving. The mechanics of sight still attend me, for my eyes search to and fro, but I can perceive nothing because my mind is disconsolately absent and lost. These eyes are useless when my mind is blind.

I move forward in fear, and even if only through the learned repetition, I begin to talk with the Lord. “Lord, I cannot feel, but I know you are near me, Your Hands stretched out to help me.” But how can you help me, this lost sojourner seeing but blind? I am gripped with unimaginable terror. I know you, but I also need to feel you. To feel your loving and warm embrace.

In a moment of epiphany, with a temporarily resuscitated mind, I come to recognize that I cannot fight this war in fear. My paralysis is the result of my despair, and the end of it will be no different from the beginning.

But I sink again to the absence of mind. I suddenly notice again that in all my wandering; I am very alone. I question my movements, my motives, my past, my decisions. Should I keep going? Will the haven of Life be worth it upon my arrival? Can I make a U-turn and change my course forever?

Inevitably, feelings of guilt and shame and disgrace envelope me. I have failed myself, but inestimably worse is the fact that I feel like I have failed you. I clench my fists around my garment with a present uneasiness. Then it hits me! You have been here with me all along, watching my every move, trying to open my eyes and open the eyes of my mind, to realize that what I needed was you.
