Pat Yourself on the Back

By Trissean McDonald

How often do you congratulate yourself?

How often do you give yourself validation?

Or, are you one who waits for others to give it to you?

Wouldn’t that cause anyone to be depressed and cynical of others?

So, what’s your choice? You do have to live with you until death.

The praise that you give yourself will carry you throughout your lifetime.

Stop relying on others to tell you or remind you of your purpose, because you’re living and doing for them instead of for yourself.

New Chapter

By Trissean McDonald

Turning a new page from a chapter in the book of your life causes a change in the atmosphere around you. New vibes radiate from your being and cause others to question who you are, what’s your deal, and how high will you rise to power?

Some people are afraid to see changes from those who were down in the gutter but are now in suits and ties. It shocks them to know that the lame could actually walk, the deaf could blissfully hear the sounds of nature, and the simple could be made intelligent. It is a threat to customary norms set by society.

Each page in your book is different, full of adventure. Some of those quests are prone to send you down a rabbit’s hole. However, every page is unique and also imperative to be turned. Rebel against society and welcome in a new adventure. Turn that page. For you’re ready to bring a better outcome to the world around you.

What Makes You a Winner

By Trissean McDonald

What makes you a winner?

You waking up this morning and placing your feet on the floor.

What makes you a winner?

Allowing motivation to work with you in order for you to endure.

What makes you a winner?

Isolating yourself to become introspective in order to become perceptible to many.

What makes you a winner?

Being a follower of those with wisdom.

What make you a winner?

You believing in you.

Keep Pushing, Keep Striving, Keep Moving

By Trissean McDonald

Have I not been to Hell and back?

Yet, I came back a warrior ready for battle.

Have I not been imprisoned and tormented?

Yet, I’ve been set free and now I fly like an eagle with freedom beneath my wings.

Have I not fallen and been trampled by a boulder that I continuously roll up a hill?

Yet, I raised my head, dusted my hands, and got back up only to try again.

Who am I?

I don’t know…

But I do have the courage of a warrior.

I have freedom as an eagle.

And I have the determination of Sisyphus.

I Feel…

By Trissean McDonald

I feel broken; yet, there’s hope.

I feel anger; yet, there’s joy.

I feel grief; however, there’s faith.

I feel anxious; yet, at peace.

I feel nothing…I…feel…something.

I feel you; you feel me.

I love you; you love me.

You keep me; I’ll keep you.

You guide me; I will follow.

I feel fear; yet, there’s bravery.

I feel dark; but, there’s a light.

I feel gentle; but, also rough.

I feel negative; yet; also positive.

I feel nothing…I…feel…something.

I feel you; you feel me.

I love you; you love me.

You keep me; I’ll keep you.

You guide me; I will follow.
