My name is Lisa-Ann Gillings. I was born on January 26, 1967, in Kingston, Jamaica. I attended the University of the West Indies, and I then moved to the United States on December 18, 1980. Here I lived with my mother for the first time in my life, along with my sister in Brooklyn, NY. I am the mother of 6 marvelous kids and grandmother to 4. I am also an author of four published books: Light at the End of the Tunnel, Light Beyond the Horizon, Spookville, and Memoir of An Island Girl. I appreciate spending my free time enjoying nature, spending time with my loved ones, helping those in need, and cooking!

LIFE IS TOO SWEET TO LIVE IN MISERY

One thing I've learned is that you cannot prioritize anyone's happiness before your happiness. Talking from personal experience, I used to put other people's feelings and happiness before my own. Which resulted in me wondering where did my life go after all those years? Remember, always make yourself happy first and everyone else after.

What You Take For Granted Someone Will Cherish

LIFE IS TOO SWEET TO LIVE IN MISERY

Most of the time the simple things we take for granted someone will cherish. For this and more, we should never take someone for granted because in a split second everything can change. Always uplift, pamper the person you're with, and remember who is important to you and treasure them. No one can ever take you for granted unless you allow them to do so. Life is such a beautiful gift. Always lighten yourself and those who surround you!

It's a great blessing waking up every day; just seeing the greatness of God love in our life. If you must wake up in misery, argument, and confusion, it seems like it's time for you to eliminate the reason that is causing you such misery. Waking up each day with great unhappiness is a blessing blocker in your life. Take a moment to reflect, sit and look at your life and start making serious changes. Begin your change from deep within.

We Are Our Own Blessing Blocker

LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO LIVE IN MISERY

Most of us go through life blaming other people for our misfortunes. It is always easy for us to blame someone when in reality we need to take a close look at ourselves. When we sow hate, we reap hate. In addition, when we are mean to others for no reason, or when we are mean-natured people at heart, we experience blessing blockers. Sometimes we need to sit back and let go of the anger, hurt, hate, and let God take charge. He will aid you manage your preoccupations and live a more joyful life.
