Think Positive – Be Positive

How many times have you heard “Think Positive – Be Positive”? We have all heard it at one time or another. Yet, do you actually put it into practice? Granted, sometimes that is easier to say than to actually do. Yet for those that do, it is amazing the difference that it can make. No matter what the situation, you can always find something good about it. Sometimes you have […]

One Day… One Step At A Time

In this fast past world we live in it seems we are all looking for instant gratification in everything. It seems to be so difficult for us to be patient and work for an end goal. It reminds me of the saying I once heard: “Oh Lord, please give me patience… but hurry up.” This is funny, but sorry, it doesn’t really work like that!  Sometime in order for us to move […]

Every Day

We have all had what seems to be a bad day. One of those days that seem to last forever. One of those days that seem to never end. Actually our days are never filled with bad things or good things. Our days are simply made up of ‘things’. How we perceive these ‘things’ will determine if they are bad or good. Even if our day is filled with things […]

Define Your History

One of the things that I think about a lot is, “what am I leaving behind?” By this I mean, when I am dead and gone what have I done in my life time will remain in this world once I am gone. Once I was asked what I wanted to do with my life. My answer was, “I want to create something that when I die little pieces of […]

Drama All Around

I must admit, I don’t like drama! What strikes me funny is how many people say that they don’t like drama, but they are the ones in the middle of it and stirring it up. I have gone to a movie, paid for a ticket, went in, sat down and started watching the movie. I didn’t like the movie, so I got up and walked out. I am the same […]

Biggest Obstacles

We all go through times when life presents us with a new opportunity or challenge and our minds immediately start playing out all of the “what if” scenarios. ‘What is the bad thing happens?’ Or ‘What if that problem occurs?’ We have all done this. The trick is to be able to stop your mind for all the negative thoughts and turn them to positive thoughts. If you start turn […]

Don’t Tell Me

Have you ever told somebody that you wanted to do something only to have them give you the long list of all these reasons you shouldn’t? They can tell you every worst case scenario as if it is based on fact and there is no other option. I call these people “dream stealers”. Dream stealers like to tell other people how to live their lives based on how they perceive […]

Be Someone

Have you ever been in a crowd of people, these are all people that you really enjoy being with. Everybody is having a really good time and glad they are there. But then there is that one person. That one person that is either loud and obnoxious. Or maybe they are that person that knows everything about everything and they want to make sure you know it. Or maybe they […]

Collect Moments

We all have things that we want. We make list of things that we want. We make vision boards of what we want. We make goals for things that we want. We spend an enormous amount of time thinking about all the things that we. We make plans on how we are going to get the things that we want. Why not spend a little less time wanting, striving and […]
