See what you do have as a value not a curse

We have to use wisdom in valuing the things that we do have. We live in a world of wanting more. Always consuming but never appreciating what’s in our life. The word says to who much is given much is required. We always get mad about what we don’t have but never get upset about what we do have and how we are not utilizing the stuff to its full potential. My personal opinion our anger is not just about what we don’t have. Our anger is also toward not knowing what to do with what we do have. So that leads us to wanting more. Searching for a fulfilment that will never come from hoarding but appreciating and understanding what we are looking for and need has been with us the whole time.

So Peace

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.

  3. Your blog post reminded me of the story of the man who complained of not having new shoes and then had become sobered when he saw a man with no feet.

    • Wow. I bet the man quickly thought to himself that he would rather have no shoes than no feet. Wow that’s a life lesson right there.

      • Yes. Contentment is 1 key to happiness. We tend at times to muse that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. Sometimes as we go on life’s journey, we are all much better off in our own personal situations irregardless of how intricate they may all be. There is a reason for that and perhaps, we may or may not know if at all.
