A Spiritual Awakening

I thought this was on par 🙂 Twelve Symptoms of a Spiritual Awakening: 1. An increased tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen. 2. Frequent attacks of smiling. 3. Feelings of being connected with others and with nature. 4. Frequent overwhelming episodes of appreciation. 5. A tendency to think and act spontaneouslyContinue reading “A Spiritual Awakening”

It Goes On

If it’s not something you’d want people to find out about, don’t do it. There’s a clear line that shouldn’t be crossed. We all know it’s there, but sometimes it’s easier to pretend it’s not, for whatever reason. The line, however invisible, is inarguably and unmistakably clear. If you want to risk the jump, sufferContinue reading “It Goes On”

A Success Story

Failing at something doesn’t make you a failure. Fall 6 times, rise 7. Failure would be the decision to sit down after that 6th fall. When someone tells you that you can’t do something, use that as motivation to prove them wrong. You can do anything you WANT to; don’t let the fear of failingContinue reading “A Success Story”

Who Sits in Your Front Row?

Invite your audience carefully. Not everyone is healthy enough to have front row seats in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of, or at least minimize, your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships/friendships.Continue reading “Who Sits in Your Front Row?”

The Best is Yet to Come

Envy is a waste of your time; look around- you already have everything you need. Don’t compare your life to someone else’s. You probably wouldn’t walk a mile in their shoes if they’d let you. And hate? That’s an even bigger waste of time. Life is too short to spend hating anyone. Regret. Regret isContinue reading “The Best is Yet to Come”

“Do It Anyway”

Borrowed from a Saint. Literally 🙂 People are often unreasonable, irrational and self-centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere, people mayContinue reading ““Do It Anyway””

Sticks and Stones

Never let your experiences limit you. Don’t let them define you, either. The more you’ve been through, the more opportunity you’re given to help others. A littered past can make for a clean future if you get rid of the trash. Wanting to change and changing are two entirely different concepts. And actions? They doContinue reading “Sticks and Stones”

A Work in Progress

People aren’t products of their pasts. Who you were a year ago or what you did yesterday doesn’t define the person you are this very second. “It’s not who you think you are that holds you back. It’s who you think you’re not.” If you keep your eyes open, you’ll see that those obstacles canContinue reading “A Work in Progress”

I’ve Learned.

I’ve learned that I can be a Christian and hold a temporary grudge. Just because I love mankind doesn’t mean that I have to like everyone at any given moment. I’ve learned that iron sharpens iron and you do become the company you choose to keep… so choose wisely. I’ve learned that it’s more admirableContinue reading “I’ve Learned.”
