I think it is safe to say that each of us have been the recipient of one of life’s curve balls at sometime in our life. By this I mean, something unexpected happens (something negative, or we think it is negative) that throw us for a loop. Based upon the magnitude of the situation, many of us we get scared, anxious or frustrated and have a tendency to think or say out loud, “WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME!

Like it or not, everything happens for a reason, so why not take some time to find out why. This tip that I am about to share could reduce your stress level and/or giving you the solution to the problem you are facing. (Drum roll)

The tip is Change the ‘!‘ to a ‘?‘ at the end of “Why is this happening to me

This change forces you to look at the situation differently – not from a victim’s mentality but from the standpoint of someone who is in control. It also allows you to look at the situation from an inquisitive angle. Hence, you are able to explore different solutions. This gives you back your power and opens up so much possibilities!

Until next time…     THINK POSITIVE!


In 2007, I started a company called Keepsakes by Faith whose main purpose was to inspire individuals using my art and inspiration words. The company evolved to meet our customers needs and today we are known as DISCOVER A NEW FUTURE. You may be wondering why. Our overall goal is to inspire individuals to be the best version of them self and we seek to do this by offering a wider array of services so we can meet individuals where they are. This includes personal development workshops, providing information, education and resources via our Discover A New Future show that airs weekly on Princeton TV, conferences, support groups and of course, art. So thanks for stopping by and please share your thoughts - it's the only way that we can grow!
