Our very business in life is not to get ahead of others. . .but to get ahead of ourselves.” —Thomas S. Monson Let us start our “Spring Cleaning” with the Windows! Forbidden Topic Wednesday By: MaquitaDonyel STORY: By: Uknown A young, successful couple found their dream home. Shortly after purchasing it, the couple sat at their kitchen table to eat breakfast. The wife looked out the window, and to her surprise, she saw her neighbor hanging laundry on the clothesline. “That laundry isn’t clean, it’s still dirty!” she said to her husband. “Someone needs to teach her a thing or two when it comes to washing her clothes!” A couple of days later, the couple sat down at their kitchen table for a meal. The wife saw her neighbor hanging clothes on the clothesline. But this time something was different. “Wow, look!” the surprised wife said to her husband, “Her…

Happy Forbidden Topic Wednesday.  You Should Date An Illiterate Girl JAN. 19, 2011 By CHARLES WARNKE info Date a girl who doesn’t read. Find her in the weary squalor of a Midwestern bar. Find her in the smoke, drunken sweat, and varicolored light of an upscale nightclub. Wherever you find her, find her smiling. Make sure that it lingers when the people that are talking to her look away. Engage her with unsentimental trivialities. Use pick-up lines and laugh inwardly. Take her outside when the night overstays its welcome. Ignore the palpable weight of fatigue. Kiss her in the rain under the weak glow of a streetlamp because you’ve seen it in film.…

By Maquita Donyel Happy Forbidden Topic Wednesday!! “Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.” ― Bruce Lee Taking Advice: At some point, someone has questioned your standards. When they did, they may have also questioned the standards you have set for yourself and/or your future spouse. Maybe they said “girl, your standards are too high…you’re going to be single forever!” Or maybe “sweetie, you’re allowing everyone to walk over you” or even “You’re perfect just the way you are…don’t change a thing”. Either way, while advice/constructive criticism is helpful, you must take your own advice. It is with this advice that you will make your  final decision; the decision that comes from you and from God. A somewhat intimidating task like this will require one to have solid standards and a sincere belief in those standards. Who you are+Where you stand+What you will not compromise…

“Leave a egg in boiling long enough, and it will become hard. Leave a carrot in boiling water long enough and it will be come soft. If I am a tea bag, I look at the boiling water and admit that the water is pretty ‘big and bad’ to have changed the carrot and the egg. But as a tea bag, I tell the water that after me, it will never be water again. Right now you look at me and  I’m a flimsy peace of tissue, when you look at me I don’t look like much. But the power of presence, when I put myself in boiling water I will change who YOU are forever. You will never be water again.” Never judge the packaging.

New Rules: The One and Done Theory- Dating Advice By: Maquita Donyel A couple years ago a friend shared their philosophy on dating. A few dates was all he  needed to decide if she was worth a second or fourth date. It is because within that time he was able to figure out if this was a person he could see himself marrying. If she wasn’t, no more dates were needed, plain and simple. FYI: The person that introduced the concept to me has since been married and has started a family. When I first heard of the idea I thought, “Wow! JUST a few dates and you KNOW? That just can’t be possible.” But after a lot of thinking and self reflecting on how I use to date, I thought why not try something new? The “One and Done”  Overall Bonuses: After experimenting with this “One and Done”…

Forbidden Topic Wednesday: Running Wild By: Maquita Donyel “It begins with your own awakening, your own desire for a life that’s not just lived on the surface but is rich and deep and high and wide. For sure, that’s how I want to live.” – Oprah Feel a tight knot in your stomach every time you think of THAT THING ?? You know, the thing you’ve been putting off for days, weeks or even months either because you’ve been dreading it or because you’re subconsciously just afraid to start (or stop) it? You’d find anything else you “need” to do but that. Make excuses of why you should just stay right where you are even when you know it’s not where you NEED to be? You want to progress, but this spot just feel so incredibly comfy. Yep… I’ve so been there. Actually, I was there just 2 days ago! The…
