You’re tense, tired, edgy, perhaps even angry, hurt or feeling abused. But before dealing directly with the source of whatever provoked your feelings, get yourself into a more balanced and resourceful state of mind. Then you will be able to see your situation more objectively and work on a more permanent solution. Here are four easy ways to pivot: Take a Break. No matter how... Continue reading

The circumstances amid which you live determine your reputation; the truth you believe determines your character. Reputation is what you are supposed to be; character is what you are. Reputation is the photograph; character is the face. Reputation comes over one from without; character grows up from within. Reputation is what you have when you come to a new community; character is what you have... Continue reading

To let go isn't to forget, not to think about, or ignore. It doesn't leave feelings of anger, jealousy, or regret. Letting go isn't about winning or losing. It's not about pride and it's not about how you appear, and it's not obsessing or dwelling on the past. Letting go isn't blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts, and it doesn't leave emptiness, hurt, or sadness.... Continue reading

There is no difficulty you cannot overcome. A wise and philosophical man once said to me, when asked how he overcame his difficulties, "How do I get through a trouble? Well, first I try to go around it, and if I can't go around it, I try to get under it, and if I can't get under it, I try to go over it, and... Continue reading

“Finding someone you love and who loves you back is a wonderful, wonderful feeling. But finding a true soul mate is an even better feeling. A soul mate is someone who understands you like no other, loves you like no other, will be there for you forever, no matter what. They say that nothing lasts forever, but I am a firm believer in the fact... Continue reading

“Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and... Continue reading

Why do we need to feel that we are in control? It's simple. For most people, control equals a perception of safety. Think back to our cave-dwelling ancestors and thunder: If we understand it, we can control it; if we can control it, it won't hurt us. We use the same kind of magical thinking about our health: If I can control all of my... Continue reading

Stay true to yourself. Don’t worry about what people think of you or about the way they try to make you feel. If people want to see you as a good person, they will. If they want to see you as a bad person, absolutely nothing you do will stop them. Ironically, the more you try to show them your good intentions, the more reason... Continue reading

Some days I feel quite useless, And some days I feel quite strong; Tuesday I feel that nothing goes right, Then Wednesday will come along. Some days are meant for joyful noise, On others, I search for peace at home; On one day, I'll want the touch of friends, The next I'll just want to be alone. If I could just know what each day...

Don’t give them a taste of their own medicine. They already know what it tastes like. Give them a taste of your own medicine. If they lied, let your medicine be honesty. If they played with your emotions, let your medicine be maturity. If they broke you, let your medicine heal. If they made you cry, let your medicine make them smile. These remedies of...

I've learned that if someone says something unkind about me, I must live so that no one will believe it. I've learned that you can make some one's day by simply sending them a little note. I've learned that the greater a person's sense of guilt, the greater his or her need to cast blame on others. I've learned that no matter what happens, or... Continue reading

The truth is that the Universe has been answering you all of your life, but you cannot receive the answers unless you are aware. Be aware of everything around you, because you are receiving the answers to your questions in every moment of the day. The channels those answers can come through are unlimited. They could be delivered in the form of a newspaper headline... Continue reading

What I Would Do Will Beebe If I were as young in years again as I still am inside, I should make me a list of a few things to do before I die: To go at least once clear around this jolly world. To live with "savages" and in jungles now and then and learn how splendid they are. To ride and read and... Continue reading

When you were born, you didn't come with an owner's manual; these guidelines make life work better. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it's the only thing you are sure to keep for the rest of your life. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called "Life on Planet Earth." Every person or... Continue reading

If only you could love enough There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer; no disease that enough love will not heal; no door that enough love will not open; no gulf that enough love will not bridge; no wall that enough love will not throw down; no sin that enough love will not redeem. It makes no difference how deeply seated may... Continue reading

Try a new recipe; plan a new adventure; entertain a new idea. Learn a new language; blaze a new trail; enjoy a new experience. Make a new fiend; read a new book; see a... Continue reading

I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have. Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free. Today I can...

Some may mistakenly believe that it is about wealth or prosperity. Others may believe it involves health and well being. However, the abundant life is not about wealth, health, or prosperity. It is not about bliss or freedom from suffering. It is not even about life beyond death. Nor can we measure it by the quality, quantity, or length of a life. The abundant life... Continue reading

Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special. Do not set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you. Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is... Continue reading

Everything you know is based on what has already happened in your life. And yet, your only influence right now is over things that have not yet happened. The things that have already happened have gotten you to where you are right now. What you need to be concerned with, however, is where to go from here. Because you're so intimately familiar with your own... Continue reading

I think so many of us are too hard on ourselves for what we didn't accomplish or what we should have done. The first step is to forgive yourself for all the things you didn't do that you should have and all the things that you did do that you shouldn't have. Get rid of the guilt. Negative feelings don't do you much good. The... Continue reading

Free yourself from negative people. Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and like-minded. Relationships should help you, not hurt you. Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be. Choose friends who you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you – people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it.... Continue reading
