    Ordinary Miracles

    Today, let your happiness be in the miracle of the ordinary. It’s very easy to ignore the ordinary, because, well, it seems so “ordinary”. After all, “ordinary” surrounds us everyday. The flowers, the trees, the fresh air, the smell of coffee, the smiles on the faces of our loved ones, the dexterity in our hands, […]

    Nourishment

    Just as our bodies need daily nourishment, so do our spirits. If we starve our bodies we will search for anything to relieve the pain. We may make the wrong food choices that will make us feel better now, however after the initial pleasure fades we feel worse. The same holds true with our spirit. […]

    Possibilities

    There’s a big difference between believing in possibilities and potential rather than in limitations and impossibilities. When we believe in the possibilities,  we approach them as if they can be accomplished, and it’s that approach that allows us to actually get them done. Many of the difficulties in our lives remain difficulties because we believe […]

    Do Overs

    Have you ever started writing, texting  or e-mailing a message and it  didn’t seem right, it was sloppy or your words did not accurately convey your thoughts?

    Perspective

    “Sometimes things which at the moment may be perceived as obstacles, difficulties, or drawbacks, can in the long run result in a “good” which would not have occurred if it had not been for the obstacle.”—Steve Allen Perspective is one of the most important aspects of our lives.  How we interpret things determines more of […]

    Feelings vs Facts

    Personal feelings are NOT facts! Do you blame other people as your first line of defense against painful feelings? Sometimes it’s easier to convince ourselves that other people’s actions and/or words make us angry rather than to take responsibility for our own part in the situation. It is quite a challenge to admit that we […]

    Character vs Reputation

    Character vs Reputation? Do you have the courage and strength to take the path less traveled. “Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” —-John Wooden Do you strive to be one of the “popular kids, […]

    A Spiritual Epiphany

    Two separate experiences led me to an epiphany. An epiphany is a moment of insight. A moment of clarity. A moment when a light is turned on in a dark room and what was once a mystery becomes quite clear. An Epiphany is personal. An epiphany is a moment after which everything is different. Have you […]
