After the Storm......


Have you ever wondered why is it that after we go through a bad phase in life we seem to come out better for it? It use topuzzle me too until recently after I stared down a gunman'snozzle I realized why.

If you have ever been in a situation like I did and survived totell the tale you would be more than grateful for everything. Andthe worst part is that my family home was invaded by gunmen whichleft us with a feeling of being so vulnerable.

I used to place few emphasis on the things that matter the mostto me in like my family, my friends and the joy I getfrom accomplishing goals and helping people.

It was after that I began to really feel the joy in seeing simplethings like the tree leaves dancing in the gentle summer breeze.It was then that I began to really appreciate the twinkle of lovein my daughter's eyes every time she sees me.

Listen, I happen to live in the crime capital of the Caribbeanwhich is Jamaica. There is not a single day that you don't reador hear negative news or stories coming your way. The causticgossip and idle chatter that surround you can make you feelmiserable absorbing all this stuff.

That's why it is important to develop a positive attitude towardslife. Developing one does not happen overnight but it can bedone. Doing things like reading inspirational literature andarticles, listening to uplifting music and having constructivetalks with others are ways to build up your positive attitude.

If more people could get access to books like Think and Grow Richand The Laws of Success among others what would be the impact on oursociety? It is materials like these that we need to use to buildup our self-esteem so as for us to have greater respect for lifeand people.

Did that gunman scare the life out of me? Hell no. Instead hemade me appreciate lifemore than ever. It made me realize that no matter what you havebeen through you can overcome. Life's too short to be broodingover what when wrong or what might have been.

All I am focus on right now is to make use of whatever time Ihave left on earth. I have even stopped thinking about whatothers think about me because it doesn't matter anymore to me.

As someone once said, "Those who mind don't matter and those whomatter don't mind". Stay positive, it is the best way to reachout for success.
