All you Need is Love….

“It’s all about Love

It’s all about Compassion

It’s about Kindness and Faith

It has nothing to do with Luck

You get what you Give

So Give Good”   -Unknown

 

Being a motivational speaker against drugs is “all about Love”. I want my audience to succeed and that takes Love, patience and understanding. When a person comes up to me and tells me they have an issue with drugs I want to be there for them and that is my Love. I am there for them as I hear their struggles and I lead them to the proper channels such as a counselor or rehab facility. Sometimes, they just want someone to listen.

 

“It’s all about Compassion” Compassion is someone that will listen and not judge them as they open up and tell you their struggles. When someone is trying to get off of drugs you need to have Compassion and let him or her know that they are not alone and there is hope that they can be drug free.

 

“It’s all about Kindness and Faith” My kindness is what I express to this individual. Like your mother always said, “ A little bit of kindness goes a long way.” Which is so true in the world of drug prevention. Show them you are there.  I will have multiple people email me after a speech to say that they have an issue or how do I help a friend. Since, I do not have a degree in counseling I listen and give them a kind word or inspirational thought to think about. Also, I give them people they can contact such as SAMHA’s (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Association).  SAMHA is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week by phone, email or information on the website. Then, you must have Faith that they will take what information you gave them and run with it to make positive changes in their lives.

 

“It has nothing to do with Luck” Plain and simple drug prevention and treatment is not Luck but is an action taken by the person that has a problem. They can be drug free with help by staying strong as they re-enter the world clean and sober with support from their family and friends. They may hear me speak which sparks something inside of them they didn’t know they had. Maybe it has nothing to do with Luck but we crossed paths for a reason so maybe just a little luck or higher power?

 

“You get what you Give so Give Good” I like this last line of the quote because a person that is reaching out for help and receives help must give themselves fully to their treatment. The addict gets what they put into it. Applying themselves to their treatment and implementing it into their lives they will give back and will “Give Good” not only to their rest of the world, but to their friends and family members as well.

 

Giving my story to others in the hopes that they will learn from my mistakes with drugs. I pour my love, compassion, kindness, and faith into my passion of drug prevention and “Give Good” back to my community.

 

Thank everyone for stopping by and next time we will (hopefully) have a new look:) Have a great day!

  1. My heart goes to everyone (and their families) with substance abuse issues. It’s such a tough road to crack but with loving people such ourselves to be there for them, I think many have a chance.

      Paul,
      Yes, my heart goes out to the families as well because I know what I put my family thru! Drug addiction or any addiction is hard to overcome! Being there for them as a person that listens helps them. What families don’t realize is by giving them money or just filling their tanks with gas they are enabling them. Its a hard line not to cross especially when you love someone that is addicted to drugs, but you can’t Love Someone Into Recovery! Thank you for stopping by my blog and have a great day!
