    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. […]

    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 […]

    Share Your Love

    Sharing your love is a good intention for today. When we share something good with the world, something good comes back to us. Love is a great example of this. Whether we are talking of a loving relationship with our spouse, children, parents, friends, or acquaintances, love is a very fluid and dynamic relationship. If […]

    “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 […]

    My Secret to Success

    I’m successful. Are you succesful? What’s your secret? This is my “secret”. I believe success is accomplished through the development of our “integrated self”.  Success is a feeling of self respect that results from making the most of our body, mind and spirit. Success comes when our  thoughts, actions and beliefs are congruent.  Success encompasses […]

    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.

    Express Your Gratitude Today

    It’s easy to think of gratitude as a nice human trait, as something that we like to see other people express in their lives, and that most of us know we need to express more of in our lives. But we don’t often see gratitude as a proactive force in our lives, as a source […]

    How are you?

    So, how are you today? Physically, do you need to exercise or eat something in particular today (or avoid eating something else)? Mentally, do you need to pull yourself out of some situation, or find something to stimulate your mind, like as a good book or a visit to a museum. Emotionally, are you able […]

    What’s For Breakfast? Lunch? Dinner?

    What’s on today’s menu? For me, curiosity and hope make for a healthy breakfast. I  snack on open mindedness, integrity, and generosity. I always try to carry a smile with me that I can share if a hungry visitor wanders into my day. At lunch I try to enjoy the local “daily special”. In the […]

    Wagons and Carts

    When I was a little kid, I remember always wanting a wagon, something I could drag my stuff aroud with me. Finally my Little Red Wagon arrived as a gift. I loved my Little Red Wagon. The first day of summer I loaded my wagon up with my shovel and pail and proudly pulled my […]
