” I dont mind the rain. “

3) regard as important, feel concerned about.

Do you say your line of work Affairs and activities as important? Are you worried by them? Are you minding your business?

Interdependents, today I just want share a little piece food for thought. I’m not sharing because I am somehow inferior to you all nor have I surpassed the lesson I am sharing, as I always sign off “as I minister to you I minister to myself” and with that being said we can begin analyzing 3 ways to mind our business.

1) Being Alone
Ever seen some drama escalate so quickly in a person’s life, Maybe a stranger in public and think “that’s their business let me not get involved” ? The first needed way to mind our own business is to become aware of it in the first place. There are things that have one in my life that are so big overload that I kind of just went on the other way mentally. The difference between the stranger and I is that I have to face me at some point why not now?

Ask yourself if your made aware of your flaws , gliches, and hang ups. While learning tonlove myself I have discovered that there are parts of me I need not accept but rather address. These things need to be addressed for many reasons and that is our business to mind. Things and events left hurt or maybe prenotions that could hinder the future and relationships both platonic and romantic and so forth and so on. Now I like to talk about me because I know about me. I have insecurities that I must deal with that stem from areas that may be painful to visit but know that I am I 21 year old adult it must be done. I don’t want generational curses or any other issue to travel to my children. I want to be a wife and a mother so I must still the grounds of my heart not just make myself pretty alone.

Our feelings,emotions,spirit whatever you want to call it /them are very powerful; and can hurt or heal. The law of conservative energy says that energy is neither created nor destroyed but merely transferred to other forms of energy. Because I use that example I’m going to call it energy. Oozez from us. Self discovery is bittersweet. We may not be delighted with every discovery Ye each discovery deserves attention.

The other day my sister jokingly said to me ” You think you look cute today huh girl?” And I replied ” I just put some clothes.” She said to me ” you’re supposed to say yeah whit.” and it stayed with me and I asked myself why i didn’t .. one might say I became aware.

2) Be Responsible

To be responsible for something or someone to be obligated to the said persons or things and are accountable for something in one’s power or have control of.

“I’m not much but im all I have.”

– Phillip K. Dick

“The only one obligated to you is you”
-Whitney Ford

“Love yourself girl or nobody will.”
-Jermaine Lamar Cole

Of course as Life Goes On we’re going to multiply and Branch out and grow so we have more than just self but the quality all depends on self. Maybe some of you already have begun to Branch out inside business maybe you’re responsible for children. Being responsible for something when someone is not just on the ship it is obligation to sustain and maintain what one is responsible for. Maybe you’re like me and you’re not yet married and all without children. Maybe you are just getting your feet wet and aspire to do things like unto those.

” For thus sayeth the Lord to the men of Judah and Jerusalem break up your fallow ground and so not among thorns”
– Jeremiah 4:3

Of course of course the scripture was written to the people to start over and grow passed their sin. Devotionally ( im pretty sure that’s not a word) we have that same responsibility for our grounds.
*Disclaimer : we have all fallen short and we know this. However, we also know that faith without works is considered dead. Which brings us to number three.

3. Love yourself for yourself

i quoted Jermaine Lamar Cole or as we know him, J. Cole because I wanted to analyze his famous Line “Love yourself girl or nobody will” it became a lot of girl’s favorite picture caption but lets take the word girl out of the equation for a second and realize that every man woman boy and girl should know that self love is more than accepting things about ourselves to feel alright. There’s nothing wrong with accepting ourselves but we should also tend to our needs. Tough love is love indeed and sometimes even in self love is needed.
“Check the person in the mirror before the mirror checks you”
– Unknown
The word is a mirror that will always show us so many parts of us, let us not shy away from its praises nor it’s harsh realities.

  4. Amber Myers on January 27, 2017 at 3:48 am

    I try to always mind my own business. I don’t have time for other people’s drama. I admit, sometimes I can get nosy, but I remind myself that it’s…well, not my business and to butt out.

  5. 9buckcrossing on January 27, 2017 at 3:56 am

    I do over-involved sometimes! Oops. You do have some great insights here that I can learn from! 🙂

  6. Doodle as I Do on January 27, 2017 at 11:35 am

    I always try to mind my own business. I don’t like when people invade my privacy with their nosiness so I don’t do it to others. Great post.

    • whitneyann on January 27, 2017 at 8:33 pm

      thank you!

  7. mira pstr on January 27, 2017 at 3:01 pm

  8. David Elliott on January 27, 2017 at 3:18 pm

    I do like the faith without works is dead quote. You show me your faith without your works and I’ll show you my faith by my works.

  9. Nellwyn on January 27, 2017 at 6:55 pm

    Taking responsibility for yourself is so important, especially if you are going to grow and take on the responsibility of caring for other like you say.

  10. Krysten on January 27, 2017 at 8:56 pm

    I think that the hardest part for me is to love me for me. I get really hard on myself when it comes to my business.

    • whitneyann on January 27, 2017 at 9:04 pm

      It can be super challenging some days. I know what you mean. One day at a time.

  11. Author Brandi Kennedy on January 28, 2017 at 12:00 am

    I love the reminder to love yourself! Sometimes as Christians we can get caught up in the line between self-love and pride, but I think self-love is an important thing. You can’t pour out what you don’t have, and you can’t love others well until you learn to love yourself.

    Love number 3. So true if you cannot love yourself, you cannot love anyone else and no one else can love you…..

  13. Claudette Esterine on January 28, 2017 at 1:30 am

    As I stated in my own post for today, I am somewhat of a loner…more than somewhat in fact. And so, minding my own business is what I do. There are times that I see something in someone else’s life that I might want to comment on, and I simply shut my month and walk away.

    • whitneyann on January 28, 2017 at 3:48 am

      You are like me haha

  14. Steph on January 28, 2017 at 2:14 am

    Good advice here – nicely written post, something I think everyone can take something away from. Thanks for sharing!

    • whitneyann on January 28, 2017 at 3:48 am

      Thank you!

  15. The Travel Ninjas on January 28, 2017 at 3:54 am

    This is a much needed recommendation these days. Minding your own business is really the path to a happier life.

  16. Emma white on January 28, 2017 at 2:24 pm

    I love this! I tell my kids not to get involved with other peoples buisness, theres no need and can drag you into the drama when you can just stay back.

  17. Crystal Gard on January 28, 2017 at 3:57 pm

    Great advice. This was interesting to read.

  18. Michelle T on January 28, 2017 at 9:45 pm

    Interesting post. I do agree we do have to take care of our own needs. Sometimes we often forget to do that and put other needs in front of our own. I like that scripture you posted about like 6:42.

    • whitneyann on January 28, 2017 at 11:39 pm

      thank you!

  19. CYNTHIA M NICOLETTI on January 29, 2017 at 1:36 am

    I have to say I am pretty easy going and do tend to mind my business unless my husband or children are involved. Great article.

  20. Felicia on January 29, 2017 at 2:42 am

    I really enjoyed this post as it reminds me of something my mother says often! I like that you pointed out how important it is to mind your business in the workplace. It never helps to be a nosey neighbor.

    • whitneyann on January 29, 2017 at 4:14 am

      thank you!

  21. katrina gehman on January 30, 2017 at 2:57 am

    i have a few family members that this that what everyone does is their business. to me i figure if someone wants me to know, they will tell me.

  22. Dawn McAlexander on January 30, 2017 at 3:08 am

    I love that line, love yourself or no one will. I have been down that road many times, and I have discovered that nothing could be more true. No matter how much someone else says they love you, it just isn’t true. Love yourself, or no one else will.

    • whitneyann on January 30, 2017 at 3:21 am

      thank you!

  23. stacey on January 30, 2017 at 9:40 am

    Akin to accepting a compliment without demeaning yourself. Just say thank you.

  24. Elizabeth O. on January 30, 2017 at 12:10 pm

    I don’t really like stepping on anyone’s business and I’d rather just mind my life. I think it’s important that you love yourself in the process as well.

  25. Katja on January 30, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    It’s so important to love yourself for yourself. If you don’t love yourself you’ll find it incredibly hard to love anyone else.

      it really is!

  27. Carol Cassara on January 31, 2017 at 7:58 am

    Isn’t life less complicated when you actually choose to mind your own business? At least, I think so. It’s pretty much more peaceful and you don’t have to deal with a lot of drama too.

  28. Aleks F. on January 31, 2017 at 1:43 pm

    Great post and quotes to match. Definitely agree that we all should love ourselves and one our own.

  29. Sheila Moon on January 31, 2017 at 3:24 pm

    As this world evolves it seems as though we must get more and more involved in other’s peoples business especially if it helps to save a life. Then when you look into that mirror you can say ” I did not just walk away, I did something”. Spreading Love to increase self love.
