The Power to Start Fresh each Day!

Nothing is more empowering than a fresh, new start! Here is your Free helper for a fresh, new start each & every day of the year! That “helper” is…

…Your tongue! That’s right…Just say the word.

Fact is, the words you speak form your world. Affirm a beautiful, healthy, prosperous, generous, grateful life…today, tomorrow, and the next day. One day at a time, restore control, and those things you want to see happen in your life can be yours… Starting now!

Why the Holidays Cause Stress (& Another Alternative)

It goes without saying that the holidays bring on added stress. We have to deal with preparation, shopping-demands, then the usual aches & pains, the regular & sometimes, overdue bills, the expectations of others…managing the budget, seeing relatives that we don’t see everyday, and balancing demanding schedules! No wonder we’re stressed!

But the fact is, this special Season is meant to be about Joy, Sharing, Giving and showing Love. Most days, that’s not the case, and if we’re honest, sometimes Christmas Day brings heartache and disappointment.

Break this cycle!

Stop and think about what you’re doing!

Find your peaceful place.

All of life is about sharing our feelings of love …It’s about friends and family and community. Without that love, nothing else really matters. I mean, when it’s all said and done, the love and the memories are all we will have remaining! 

Make a promise to Yourself. This year will be different.

“This year, I’m going to break the cycle of disappointment and chaos. I want things to change, so this Holiday Season, I’m making a change!” My special gift to myself is to …

Learn to relax and breathe, and to Learn to love thyself!

Take the time to relax and breathe. Take time for yourself!

You’re worth it!

Need a Breakthrough? Use What You Have: Your Words!

Ever feel like, no matter what you do, you’re always struggling? You’re not alone. I can relate!

I remember graduating high-school with expectations of an exciting corporate-office career. I did what my parents told me to do…I enrolled into college the very next fall.
I attended my classes when my friends were in the pool hall, or sitting around telling jokes, even when I found the class boring.

In other words, I started out doing everything “right.” Sound familiar?

Somehow, years later, I found myself struggling to make ends meet, struggling to get along with my co-workers, struggling to please the boss, even struggling with the so-called “exciting” corporate-environment, with its “exciting” people, and “exciting” dress-code, and “exciting” after-hour-get-together’s. It was all a big struggle. This wasn’t my dream at all! 

Where was that “wrong turn?” Where did I go astray? Why was I struggling?
                        Turns out, my words were phrases like,
Girl, I’m so broke, I don’t know what to do!
And “Man, I am so tired all the time!
And “I am sick & tired of these people in this office!
And “These kids are getting on my nerves!
Notice anything similar about these phrases?
Turns out, my so-called problems were created by my negative state of mind. When I first made this discovery, after reading Neale Donald Walsch’s “Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue,” I was so relieved! I’m thinking, “I CAN be cured of this negativity in my life!”
But then, the hard work started. I had to train my mind to think positive thoughts instead…Not easy, let me tell you!
But, if you want to live…I mean, really live a happy, healthy life, you’ll be motivated everyday, by every event, by every negative person who approaches you…to push forward, read more of that book that inspires…listen to more of that music that makes you sing…to do whatever it takes to break through!
And, again, in the treasured reward, you’re not alone…
There are others like me, like you, who have pushed forward, through all the negative hype, and learned to take control of their lives and make each day count!

Atonement: a Hard Pill to Swallow!

How can I make-up for all the wrong I’ve done?

Maybe, if I start today, and never make those same, stupid mistakes again…

Maybe if I apologize, but will they believe me? Just saying “I’m sorry,” is not enough!

Maybe if I cry, they’ll believe I’m sorry.

Two weeks later, I messed-up again.

Atoning for past sins is really quite impossible. I can never do the right thing consistently. Part of me wants to give up. The other part wants to just hide. Then, there’s the seriously guilty part of me, that may as well die!

Guilt is a killer!

How can I ever atone? It’s a hard thing to live with: a hard pill to swallow!

Let’s be truthful.

I can’t. I can’t be right, or good, or perfect. There’s no way. Every time I try to do good, evil is always there, staring at me! Every time I try to say the right thing, it comes out wrong.

All I can say…. is…

…thank God for this One Truth:

A man on the street-corner told me a story about the torture of an innocent Man, thousands of years ago, Who prayed for His torturers, while they were torturing Him, Whose death actually paid for my wrongs!

“How is that possible”, I asked, “when I had not been born yet?”

The stranger explained that This Man’s death atoned for, not only my wrongs, but for the sins of everyone born before …And after His death!

Miracle of miracles, and an amazing gift of Grace!

The mystery of the Love of Jesus, makes it possible to release me from the penalties that I deserve for all the mistakes and wrongs I have ever done!

“Whaaat??!” I exclaimed.

Truth is: If I had not stopped to talk to this stranger on the street-corner, I might have gone on through life, condemning myself forever…miserable, angry, blaming others … or circumstances, for my misery.

So glad I stopped and listened.

Now, I have come to know…

When I mess up, all I have to do, is repent: acknowledge my sin, tell Jesus and anyone else that I’ve offended, that I am sincerely sorry, make an attempt to change the error of my ways…and immediately….

The bright light of Jesus’ love covers me, hides my sin and my shame, washes it away, and suddenly, I’m on the path to newness…a fresh start!

… And, trust me, I’ve started over many, many, many times!

But Jesus doesn’t condemn me…Instead… He keeps forgiving me, giving me another chance. Nobody loves me like that!

Atonement? Aaaahhh!

It’s In the old rugged Cross of Calvary!

Got a Dream? Here’s How to Make it Happen!

“Anything we build can be destroyed by forces beyond our control. But what we have built has a better chance of survival if we start with a strong foundation.

foundationThese are the words of an average small-business owner from Canada, named Scott. He started with nothing, and built something great.

 

Anyone with a vision knows that some kind of investment is necessary to see the vision become a tangible thing. But your investment of money, emotions, work or effort has to be a passionate “donation” to the dream.

That goes without saying. 

You’ll need care.

You’ll need to bring something “to the table”.

You’ll need drive and determination.

You’ll need a spiritual connection to a Higher Power than you!

Anything worth having is worth investing passion.

Write it down!

  1. Write down your dream or vision. Be specific about what you want!
  2. Now, you’ll need to see it! So, find a picture or likeness of what you desire, and place it in a prominent place that you’ll see every morning.
  3. Keep a journal of your progress, and do something everyday to draw closer to your goal.
  4. Be grateful for every little step forward, believing in positive outcomes.

But there is something else you need, that conventional thinking does not take into account;

…but those who are successful life, earning enough money to sustain themselves, living stress-free happy lives… have this one thing in abundance.

 

A spiritual connection. You cannot, and will not succeed without it! You might have the money, the house, the car, the parties…but that lonely emptiness will be hanging on, true happiness, joy & peace will evade your dreams…

An emptiness fills my gut. Where’s the joy?

Remember Scott? He mentioned the need for a strong foundation. Here’s something else to consider if you’re looking to start any kind of venture or pursue any kind of dream: 

Think about 3 things:

  1. If I weren’t building my dream, what would I be doing with my time?
  2. If it takes years to start seeing the results of my hard work, would this all be worth it?
  3. Am I enjoying the way I’m spending my time working toward my dream, or is it a “chore?”

Needless to say, the “Successful” must have a certain mind-set, and a clear focus.

Self Portrait at Reesor Lake (July 13, 2013)This person has to be persistent, with a stubborn-sort of character, rejoicing in the small accomplishments that come every day.

This is a special mind-set, that comes out of Self-Development. And as You develop, you will add value to others’ lives, gaining the trust and respect of 

  • Local and online friends & family, (connecting online with Social Media & forums) and
  • Local and online communities.

 

You only need to have a dream, envision your dream, engage a system, follow the plan, put forth the effort and be consistent….

…And connect with God today, (now is a good time!)

…in a true and spiritual way:

Therein lies your inner power to achieve anything!
