M KOVAH magazine was and being developed to be a platform for those who are dreamers. Those who are inspired by being the stand out. The difference maker. The one who says "I made it". To those who see themselves beyond where they are. Those who do not offer excuses. Those who believe that God has ordained their success. Those who have experienced pain, suffering and tribulations and have faced it. Those who stare down fate and not fate staring down on them. MKOVAH magazine is a movement. Not a sugar coated cat walk in the park. A reality check for us all to be the absolute best our greatest vision of ourselves can imagine.

" WHY M E?" A LIFE CHANGING QUESTION Have you ever woken up and went to the mirror and said "Why Me?" We often follow an all so common routine. You wake up and go about the same routine. You leave the house following again the same routine. Have you ever stopped to think "Why Me?" Throughout the course of the day. Almost everything is about the same as the previous days, weeks, months and years. You are on your way home and when you finally enter your home. Do you ever just sit down and ask "Why Me?" I guess by now you are trying to figure out the "Why Me" of the story. The "Why Me" is the question you ask yourself about why you were blessed to wake up in the morning. Why am I blessed to go about my day to finally make it home and be able to reflect on your day. It is a personal moment where we have to consider. Life is precious, fragile and for all not guaranteed. However, we often forget that at any moment like a flash of light. All we pride ourselves on. All the friends we have. All the monetary benefits we may gain. That it could be gone at any time. How do we utilize that unpredictable existence? How do we attempt to show appreciation for the blessings? Self reflection is personal. No one can actually be involved in that process. It is all on you. Just remember. A person who does not ask the question "Why Me" will never really be whom and what those blessings were intended. Today take the time to ask yourself the defining question of your existence, "WHY ME"?

WE LIVE IN A WORLD THAT CAN BE CRUEL. A WORLD WHERE LIFE IS TAKEN FOR GRANTED. WHERE THERE IS HOPELESSNESS IN ABUNDANCE. A WORLD WHERE THE TRUE SENSE OF HUMANITY IS BUT A PASSING THOUGHT. BOUND BY AN IGNORANCE IN OUR PROFESSING OF FAITH WHILE FAITHLESSNESS IS THE GOAL. WE LIVE IN A WORLD OF SPIRITUAL CHALLENGE. A WORLD OF ODDS AND TRIALS. HOWEVER, PLEASE BELIEVE GOD IS REAL.
