CAUGHT UP?

Recovery is hard, regret is harder, so common sense should tell you, if things go wrong, don’t go with them.

“We were never created to live depressed, defeated, guilty, condemned, ashamed or unworthy. We were created to be Victorious,through Our Savior Jesus Christ. I heard if we try to clean up our act, we can find Heaven by backing away from Hell. The thing is, will we do it, or will we become addicted to the heat?

You must decide, because not making decisions, especially when we are advantageous can be unwise, coupled with a wasted opportunity that if missed has the capacity to put us in a rut (losing our direction).

By the way, The only difference between a rut and the grave is the dimensions. A wake-up call, you think?

As most know, addiction is the condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity. Addicted is when we are physically and mentally dependent on a particular substance, thing, or activity. The problem takes root when we are unable to stop taking or doing whatever without incurring adverse effects.

One of the ugliest things about having an addiction is when you can stop; you don’t want to, and when you do want to stop, you can’t.

There are a variety of ways people can become heavily addicted to substances other than drugs; there are fame, money, attention, etc. Oh and narcissism, you know, people who are addicted to themselves and are consumed with maintaining lies about how great they are, all for the sake of attention, which is a weakness that is hard to shake off.

Narcissistic, or not, everyone would be better off seeking respect, something that deserves attention and care. It’s as though our curiosity is looking to be misinformed with all the jaw-dropping information we find on the internet about pornography, anger, and rage, body imagining, violent video games, and the Fake News so many of us gravitate to. For what is my question; is it to experience a quilt, shame or embarrassment, by consuming all the filth? I would like to think not.

The Bible tells us in Proverbs 3:5-6, Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Traditionally, most vulnerable people suffering from an active addiction usually would not admit to it? The remarkable thing is they see everyone else’s addiction, but most don’t recognize their own until they genuinely try to quit something they claim to not be reverent. This is when all the problems come to the surface, and unfortunately, this is the time most discover their lives are in shambles. The question now is, do you battle fiercely for your life, or keep lying to yourself?

Rising above any addiction is not an easy task, but there are ways when trying to recover. For example; airplanes take off against the wind not with it, and that’s not easy, but you can do it by giving all the Glory to God, and all you have within you in order to help yourself.

So as most know, the only way out of any addiction is to fight it. Or die because of it. As far as I know, Addiction is the only prison where the locks are on the inside, and the only place that I can think of, where things can get lost for decades.

I’ve had my problems too; I was addicted to cigarettes for over 45 years, and I readily admit I had no intentions to stop until my bout with 3rd Stare Breast Cancer, made me.

The pain was enough to convince me I could not continue smoking. Some of us are not that lucky. I know one guy that fought through the pain and died from an addiction to cigarettes before invasive cancer could kill him. I guess his will to smoke was stronger than his will to live. It is a choice that bears a struggle.

Because of the Cancer, I had to have a Mastectomy. So, after the surgery and I was home alone, for the first time I lit a cigarette; the pain from that one puff dropped me to my knees; it was a pain like nothing I had felt before. But it didn’t take long for me to discovered nicotine was the culprit; I abandon my cigarette smoking before I even got off the floor. It hurt so bad that it was one of the easiest decisions of my life. As a Witness for Jesus Christ, if you want to, you can stop cold? I was forced, so in my case I thanked God.

Then again, everyone has a different story, but most can start to change theirs by telling themselves the truth, admit it to God, and tell those who need to know while taking responsibility. And stop trying to explain to others why you can’t stop. What needs to be discussed is what triggers your addiction; what are the temptations, what’s your end goal, and what would you rather do instead of supporting an addition?

A good start would be to generate a new beginning. Basically, all I am saying is, stop the blame game, be patient, research recovery programs, get support, exercise, eat a balanced diet, explore healing approaches, and seek Divine Help; which means, help from the Almighty God Himself, coupled with having enough Faith to know God is sending help to you when your own effort cannot produce a result. Luke 5:1-10

SCAREDY CATS?

Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing. Warren Buffet. The thing is, not knowing that, seems to be very common these days.

In my world, how we deal with what we’re lacking will make or break us, like it or not

I think the only way to find out what’s next, is to trade what you do know, for what you don’t; which happens to require a lot of courage. What if the people of the world were courageous enough to fight just as hard to understand others, as hard as it does to make us disagree with each other?

The thing about risk is, if you win you will be happier, if not, hopefully, you will be wiser.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. The truth is when we play too safe we are taking the biggest risk of our lifetime by not putting in the effort to try. It has been said this is an all or nothing the world; no risk, no gains, no pain. I am not so sure when it comes to the no pain part, I’ll believe that when it happens; this world was built on pain.

Thanks be to God, the world is full of people with the courage to take on risk and the pain that comes with it. They are adventures, entrepreneurs, problem solvers, notable winners coupled with willing losers, ready to take on any type of risk. Playing it safe will merely cause us to forever wonder what might have been.

For the most part, things can make drastic changes when we risk involving others. A good example of that is when we fall in love.

It seems as if when love comes into play, we are more than willing to risk it all for that special someone, although it has been proven over and over again that when taking a chance on love it can become life’s ultimate tragedy. The thing is, the riskiest part of being in love takes place when every rational part of our bodies are screaming, “DON’T DO IT.”

But, for the sake of love it’s not all bad. I believe Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk falling in love, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit, and all that come with it…

I know the majority of us want to be the best we can for ourselves and others, but if we truly want what we say out of our mouths, don’t be afraid to get out of your Zip Code and create new paths because if you are unwilling to risk being unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.

Consider this, when you’re too afraid to take on risk, the cowards say, you shouldn’t try, critics say, you can’t do it, but the Creator will say, Well Done; that is if you try.

YOU KNOW THEM!

The deceivers, hanging on to everything you allow them to come in contact with, especially the inner you.

You had better Stop letting people who do so little for you control your mind, feelings, or emotions. Will Smith

We all know the culprits we just don’t recognize them. They can be the people who, depending on who you are, that can easily become addicted to your fame, money, and even the attention you may receive from others as deeply as they can become addicted to drugs.

They can also be narcissists who are consumed with maintaining a shallow false self to others through you, and their jealousy of you can become a hidden agenda.

So, let’s talk about the State of our Friendships.

I think, most times we don’t know what that special someone is up to because we trust them, but the good news is, if you ever find out their intention is to put you down, while trying to bring themselves up, because of your qualifications, just know, If people are trying to bring you down, Be Proud of it. It only confirms that you are above them. And that friend is a Fake.

Everybody knows, keeping bad company can ruin good character.

I assume you know that, but if not, you still had better start watching who you hang out with, but more importantly, pay attention to the others that love you too, and the information you receive from them. There is truth in numbers, especially if it’s about the same person.

And let’s not forget if a person tells you who they are, believe them the first time, oftentimes there are no second chances. You have been warned.

Your closest friends are the ones who can truly pierce your heart.

In other words, stay away from people that don’t have anything to offer but praise. The praise they give often causes us to shower them with gifts. And that’s a habit we have to make them feel special, all because it’s easier to keep them near, so we can continue enjoying all the adulation they bring. The thing is, they’re only there for the gifts anyway. It’s simple, they know what makes you tick.

These people or persons are your enemy. It’s easy to know them by their habits; pay attention because your Ego won’t; it’s ready to eat anything others are willing to feed it. It’s a Human thing.

It’s Something to Think About!

LEAVE YOUR MARK!

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

All good men and women must take responsibility to create legacies that will take the next generation to a level of possibilities we could only imagine. A good reason to Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones.

We all have issues, and most are not unique to others, some of us even look alike. You know what I am talking about; like when someone swears they have seen your twin, etc. But, what makes you different from all the rest is what you carve out in this Big Wide World that makes you stand out, but more importantly is how you help others make their way.

Even though most of us are alike in many ways, there are exceptions. Some people like me, have friends and foe alike that love to question where our information comes from. That’s because most people are skeptical, and\or too lazy to do the research. Their goal is simply to tear you down.

But I can tell you experience played a huge role in answering that question, because reading, writing, and listening is fundamental. Leaning to your own understanding without tried and true references are detrimental.

The majority of my opinions on norvielcherry.com, have come from hard knocks, beautiful experiences, knowledgeable people, and roads well traveled. I was fortunate enough to get out of my Zip Code in order to see how the rest of the world was living; and was that ever an eye full of wonders, and some not so amazing. In fact, some left me horrified.

I believe my legacy is to share the information I have learned.

I have seen and done things I don’t want any other Human Being to experience without some type of knowledge of what to expect. I am also a devout believer in not taking information from anyone who has never experienced the problem or situation they are giving advice about.

I also believe proven information should be shared for the benefit of others. So, I talk about what happened to me and what I have learned from those adventures in the form of a Blog. For instance, I didn’t know Chemo is administered one small drip at a time. Did you?

The things I have discovered through trial and error is we have to make our mark the best way we can. We need to find that one thing that lets the world know at some point we did exist, and was someone to be reckoned with.

A good way to start is to make yourself a priority, by being your longest commitment.

An example would be when I had 3rd Stage Breast Cancer I survived because the will to live was burning brighter than the cancer inside me. I had to live in order to tell others how to fight it. The information was too valuable to die; it had to be shared. Hence, I Survived 60 Years to Get Cancer, Then Kill It/The Norvie L. Cherry Story.

This is my legacy for all those interested to see and learn from; and I don’t expect anyone to take it as gospel, but, It is what it is. The personal accomplishment of writing that Testimony in the form of a book is the fact that no one else with my name and book is enshrined in The Library of Congress, forever. It’s there for all to see or read throughout history.

The beautiful thing about knowing what you learned is nobody can take it away from you. Although jealousy, envy, and the rest of the gang may try, beating it out of you won’t work. You know what you know.

Some say Like the Sands of the Hour Glass, so are the Days of Our lives. Well, that’s your life, you can choose to let it slip away one grain at a time, if you so choose. Not me, I choose to use every minute available.

My mother’s favorite saying was, I buy you, books, and buy you books, but all you do is look at the pictures. Don’t let that be you.

And just for the record, while others are watching Soap Operas, I enjoy The Learning Channel, Discovery, National Geographic’s, etc., I even like some children’s shows like Holy Moly because it teaches us how to draw.

Others may think, I think, I am smarter than the rest. The facts are, I choose to put into play what I’ve learned by sharing it with others, so if that makes me a know it all, then so be it. All you have to do to make your own mark is to read and learn from reliable sources, then share what you have learned.

The thing is knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice. So, get to work and put your stamp on it.

THE EASY WAY?

Contacts can be found on the bottom page, and sharing is encouraged.

All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity is easy. Stay away from easy.

It’s not hard to make things easy, all we have to do is follow a few rules. If it is not yours, do not take it. If it isn’t right, don’t do it. If that’s not true, don’t say it. If you don’t know, shut up.

The first paragraph is an example of some easy ways to live, but there are easy ways to die. Puff a cigarette daily and you will die 10 years early. Drink alcohol daily and you will die 30 years early. Love someone who doesn’t love you back and you will die daily.

Those things are your personal demons among others, but they should be afraid of you. It’s simple, you are their home, their food, and as you heal, their executioner. That should be easy to understand.

“Ideals are easy. Ideas are common. Everybody has ideas. But, ideas are also highly overvalued.”

What separates the pro from the amateur isn’t money, success or talent. It’s the mindset. The execution of ideas is all that matters, and that’s not easy. Just like everybody has a story to tell. All you have to do is write it. But, that’s not easy either.

It’s easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging those responsibilities, like it’s easy to make promises, the thing is its hard to keep them. It’s easy to hate, but difficult to love. In other words, all good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.

For some reason it’s always easy to blame others, but our successes or failures fall on no one but us. It’s our responsibility; this alone is not easy. Just like anyone can become angry. The thing is to be angry with the right person at the right time, and for the right purpose, and in the right way. This is not within everyone’s power, so that makes it harder than ever.

Most of us think it is easy to be safe, especially when we are at home, but think of it this way. A ship is always safe on shore, but that is not what it was built for.

It’s easy to think just when we think we have found our way in life, it changes, but there is always room for improvement, and that’s within your own self. Just remember, the man who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty, has wasted thirty years of his life. That is not easy to know, in fact it is very sad and a great waste of time.

In life, the hard way is to learn or discover something through personal experience, especially that which is difficult, painful, or unpleasant.

The easy way is to extricate yourself from a difficult situation is by choosing a course of action, offering the least effort, worry, or inconvenience, even though a more honorable alternative may exist.

It’s Something to Think about!

Thank you, and special thanks to the authors who names elude me.

DETERMINATION WILL GET YOU THERE?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

It’s no secret life is full of challenges wrapped in unimaginable struggles, the very reason we cannot allow setbacks and obstacles to be the reason we give up. The most effective weapon on and off the battlefield of life is determination; the ability to keep trying and to keep moving no matter what.

It’s true, our successes or failures depend on how much determination, we put into whatever is necessary. We can start by deciding to choose hope. Hope is the most practical starting point because this is where the real possibilities begin.

Life is hard for most of us, but the truth is we only get one shot at it.

Life doesn’t give us too many do overs, so we had better be determined to make what we have as resourceful as possible. With that being said the next step is to seek for goals. If you don’t have them, you can’t push yourself; it’s simple, you’ll have nowhere to go, except into some state of limbo, or in the grasp of someone that will dictate them to you.

We all have those unfortunate times when there are more bad days than good ones; you know, those messy life events that overwhelm the good ones, like unexpected tragedies. I don’t know about you, but those are the days when we should be even more determined to get through what’s necessary to minimize damage.

When we allow our fear of failure to control us, and we use excuses instead of determination to conquer all, we risk the possibility of becoming complacent and mean spirited. These actions only lead to bad decisions, often causing us to make senseless moves that actively resist success due to stubbornness.

None of those traits will help your quest; they are meant to cripple. 

I can tell you this, I would rather fight the fight than wish away my days waiting for better ones that may not come, like some folks I know. And I know one of the greatest mistakes we can make in life is to continually fear we may make one. We all make mistakes, that’s how we learn, and it’s a part of living.

In other words, if you don’t try, you can’t secede.

Speaking for myself, I don’t have the time to waste time on things that have no value, especially if it’s the kind that make you want to stop living. I suggest you deal with what’s in front of you right now; that’s the way the present has to be dealt with, because in a second, the now can become a missed opportunity that might have been your future.

One of our jobs is to motivate ourselves, often through sheer determination. I can’t say it enough about that because it is absolutely necessary put into play whatever has to be done in order to make ourselves who we want to be. Waiting on others will not change our situation, it’s totally up to us. Then again, some of us are determined to not take any risk for fear it will be in vain. That’s too bad.

The thing is, we have a choice, we either do or don’t. Just keep in mind that the only way life won’t happen is if you are dead, so you had better be determined to make it as fruitful as possible. As for me, I choose to live, embracing all of its ups and downs with a good deal of anticipation to get as much out of it as I can.

Did you know there are few things in this world that are more powerful than persistence? It’s that determination to get things done that win the day.

It’s something to think about.

THE WAY I SEE IT.

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

How people see us can sometimes come down to a single kernel of corn.

Back in the day, I use to visit a friend that seemly lived most of her life spooning out the bottom of cans until they were nearly clean, coupled with shaking bottles for every drop of liquid to fall. I watched her for about 5 years, and I can still see her in my minds eye guiding every morsel of food into the corner of a pot, a pan, a can, etc., until she had extracted every eatable parcel of food from it.

I saw this as a waste of time and petty, but as the years passed and I had to fend for myself, things changed. It was not until I left my parents home did I fully understand why she had to have every grain.

That move into adulthood was not what I was expecting. Now that I had to make and manage my own money concerning an array of bills previously taken for granted, especially the food. My friend’s frugal practices all of a sudden made sense.

It wasn’t long before I started to realize how wasteful I had been, and most of that waste was out of pure laziness that ended up costing me a pretty penny. As petty, or cheap, for lack of a better word I thought she was, I now know how valuable every morsel is, especially when you or others are hungry.

The moral of this story is, it just goes to show sometimes you can’t see your way clearly until it affects you personally. What I originally thought to be a waste of time was a learning point. I learned the importance of making every dollar count, how to minimize waste, and save more efficiently.

Years ago, my father invented a game that the family still enjoys today, the things is, now it is selling all over the World because someone else patent it. Until this happened, I had tried several times to have the game patented myself, but the times, knowledge and resources eluded me.

I knew I had a winner, but I failed when I didn’t actively do as much as possible to secure it, instead I took it to the park some twenty or so years later. By then it was within my graph to start some type of legal ownership, instead I had become comfortable, and was not pursuing a license, which cost me everything.

The moral of the story is, we are constantly praying to God for a way, but when He gives it to us, oftentimes we take it for granted, or not recognizing it as a blessing, and then we start to wonder why we didn’t receive what we were promised. After all, He did say, ask and you shall receive. I was angry when I didn’t get what I wanted?

Finally, I came to the realization that all blessing don’t come ready made, one size does not fits all, or in the form of money. Sometimes we have to work with what we have been given in order to turn it into something we want, including money or other worldly goods, but by now it was too late for that project.

What I learned was, A vision without action is a daydream; a daydream that could easily turn into a nightmare.

Just so you know, there has been more than a few people I decided to remove from my life, for whatever reasons, and there were those I found hard to just let go of, but, I found by doing so turned out to be proof that I could do better.

It took time, but I found some old friends to be exactly what I didn’t want, or need; I was being held back because I thought them to be real friends, even when I knew I was on the losing end of most things when it came to them.

But all wasn’t wasted, because I chose to extract the little good I found in some, instead of fuming or seeking revenge, which in turn motivated me to do more than ever to get what I deserved. I had come to terms with some people are only in your life for reason and a season.

I realized at some point we may not get all of what we think we deserve, or keep company with the people we want to associate with, even our wants can be unattainable. The good news is you do get what you believe, plan and expect if you work at it.

On the other side of the equation, there are ways and things that will make sure you never get to the level you deserve, for instance, if you’re too attached to things (and People) that don’t deserve you.

It’s Something to Think about!

WORK IT OUT!

 Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

WORK IT OUT?

Hard work spotlights the character of people: some will turn up their sleeves, some will turn up their noses, and  some don’t turn up at all.  Sam Ewing

I am sure there have been some trying times in all our lives, and I am sure that quite a few of us have uttered that ole saying, “I’ve got to gain control of my life and get back on track,” or Why did this or that have to happen to me, has been heard all over the World.

As much as we want the plans we choose to work out, there are always plenty of ways for that not to happen. Leaving us to wonder why doors close, prayers go unanswered, and roads altered, creating detours.  It’s simple, first seek God’s plan, and His will.

A good place to start is through obedience, prayer, and listening to the Holy Spirit. For a successful plan calls for us to be committed to his way. Romans 8:28 tells us For my thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor your ways My ways, declares the Lord.

And let’s not forget John 15:5: I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

 With that in mind, often times in order to get our life back we have to face the death of what we thought our life would look like, coupled with almost everyone fails at who and what they are supposed to be at some point.  And that I can agree with because most of us are just talking about um A-gonna do this or that. Most don’t even take into account when the plan has been laid out that action is required.

For me, doing nothing is hard because you never know when you are finished, and the hardest part about planning is not to quit because it’s difficult.

If we press we can live a life of success, that is if we are willing to obey God’s Will and live at the edge of our abilities. Which is another reason we should try to understand that some things don’t always go the way we thought they should be because, if it didn’t happen, it wasn’t meant to be, what is for you is for you, and my favorite That’s Life.

Just remember it’s okay if you don’t get what you were hoping for, just be aware of the fact that what we want is  always harder than we thought, but all great achievements take time. 

In my opinion, if you feel something wasn’t supposed to be in your life like physical harm, etc., personally I pray for a way to remove it, or move on. The fact of the matter is we all have to deal with the Good, the bad, and the ugly; standing still won’t cut the mustard. 

There is another way to fix things instead of imagining, or wondering, coupled with guessing, is just to think about what you want to do then do it, which requires us to strengthen our Faith, and Breathe.

Did you know when we get it right there is an award? Yep, we get the opportunity to do more. I call that on The Road to Becoming a Pro.

Question: What if the worst parts of your life were the gateway to the very best parts you’d never want to be without? I bet you would find a way then.

PICK ONE, NOW OR NEVER?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

Colin Wilson tells us The average man is a conformist, accepting miseries and disasters with the stoicism of a cow standing in the rain.

Just so you know, cows will stand in a field regardless of the weather until one takes the initiative to head to the barn, then they all line up single file, and follow that one cow to shelter. As lowly as cows are is in this realm, that one happened to be a leader and has taken charge of its situation, whether we understand it or not.

The percentage is pretty high that there will come a time when we all may have to take a stand. My advice is to take into consideration the words of Lou Hotz; Nothing on this earth is standing still. It’s either growing or it’s dying. No matter if it’s a tree or a human being.

The thing is we exist in a society of victimization where people are much more comfortable being victimized than actually standing up for themselves for a lack of courage.

Don’t be afraid to take a stand for yourself, or speak up even if you don’t get the answers you are looking for; it’s just the fact that you said something that matters, even if it hurts.

It’s a fact of life that sometimes the actions we take will leave scars, especially when we choose to stand up and fight for ourselves and others, but scars show toughness, including the fact that you have been through it, and you’re still standing is a Testimony.

It takes tremendous courage to stand up for what’s right, even if you have to stand alone, especially when you know it is unpopular. The thing is, it’s a true test of your moral character.

The wall of fear that may be standing in your way has no expiration date, it can stand in place a lifetime if the reason it was put there is not removed or at least addressed. Most times the problem is self-insecurities, like not trusting your own ability to fight for your own life (too afraid), the sorry reason the wall is still there.

Take back your power; your insecurities are what’s chasing and standing in the way of the freedom needed to live out your dreams.

Although some of us were not blessed with confidence, still we had better be aware of those that don’t fight back, just like you, sooner or later they will have to. So, it’s better to say and do something now: Let the World know you exist, because if you don’t, what you allow will continue, like it or not.

Don’t let anyone break your soul. You will have to stand on your own; stand up for yourself. Some, including family, would give anything to see you fail, but you must never give them the satisfaction. Hold your head up high, smile, and stand your ground fearlessly.

It’s Something to Think About!

My apology to the authors whose names elude me.

WORD UP, SHORT AND SWEET!

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

People don’t want to hear your opinion. They want to hear their opinion coming out of your mouth.

I rest my case.

Jesus is Lord!
