Discouragement (n)

  • the act of making something less likely to happen or of making people less likely to do something
  • : a feeling of having lost hope or confidence
  • : something (such as a failure or difficultythat discourages someone

Everyday something is happening to us that we can or can’t prevent. And you know it that does suck. When certain situations are in your control and it just slips through your fingers. Man another missed opportunity. Or when certain situations arise that go undetected, situations never showed up on the raider. It’s in stealth mode. These situations come in like a flood and catch you off guard and just wipe you out. Man, that hurts because it shook up your world and left you to die. You could feel how cold it was. In its eyes you see no care, no grace, no compassion, no mercy.

You were not prepared for a category 7 situation. You are left not knowing what to think, what to make of this and what to do with the remains of this catastrophe.

In the words of Hustle Man, “you gotta pick up the pieces.”

Don’t sit back and allow what has happened to you weigh you down. Don’t walk around blaming yourself for situations that were in our out of your control. Keep going. Don’t sit back and relive the same tragedy over and over again, because it won’t solve a thing. All of these things that you are constantly holding onto is a form of pity. Avoid it at all cost because pity……….. well it’s a one shot kill to your courage leaving you wasted and your situation remaining the same, never changing.

Change your mentality and you will change your reality. Don’t think and confess with your lips that your life is over. Don’t make peace with your situation. Don’t lay out new covers, place pillowcases on pillows, and lay out bedsheets. This is not a sleep over. Give your situations the hotel treatment, “checkout is at 7pm. All calls end, turn in your keys and key cards, and any damage to the room will be added to your bill. Have a nice day and please fill out a survey through our website leaving a friendly comment about our services.” But get into the habit of waving your hands to your situations telling them “bye and don’t come back now.” 

Stop throwing yourself a pity party. Yes it happened. Yes it brought you alot of pain and misery. Yes it caught you off guard. But by you holding onto the memories of it, it’s only going to further injury to your life. Allow yourself to heal and let it go. You deserve a new beginning. Lighten the load, let that baggage go.  I liken this unto going to the grocery store buying at maximum 15 bags worth of groceries. Let’s say that you have a friend there with you. I would hope that you are not being a muscle man/women but you realizing that you can’t carry all of this home. So instead you lighten the load and hand about 6 to 7 bags to your friend. This makes walking home easier, bareable. Instead of you walking down the street struggling.

Look situations happen it’s just apart of life. There is no way to escape it. However, there is a way to deal with it. Yes there is a way to deal with it………

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Matthew 11:28-30

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
