Toughness is not how loud a person talks.

It’s not about who has the most tattoos.

The quality is primarily about the heart,

which is why some people can’t help but lose.


Many have the brains to be successful

but lack the heart needed to obtain a prize.

Hence, they are usually mad at or simply watching

the next man who has the hustle to upgrade and rise.


Twelve inches is why some don’t see success.

It’s the distance between the brain and the heart.

Some people have minds like powerful computers

that are capable of creating exquisitely beautiful art.


I tip my hat to the single working mom

She makes no excuses regarding the mistakes she’s made.

Everybody makes errors in their lifetime.

It’s about getting up and going forward, even if afraid.


I admire the dad who raises his kids

even when their mother drives him absolutely crazy.

He’s a real man for taking care of his own.

We know that woman is immature and lazy.


Kudos to the husband who stuck with his family

through the years when he really wasn't appreciated.

Loving relatives usually come around with time.

Maturity helps us get better perspectives on things.


There is a lot of toughness in our world,

and it can easily be found

in the neighborhoods of regular, everyday people.


We all have examples of such in our families.

Let’s thank God for these ones

because they play a key role

in keeping us grounded and in tune with where we're going.
