This question is frequently asked of people after they've reached a certain age. One unknown father came up with some answers I believe have a lot of merit: 1. "I would love my wife more in front of my children." That is, he would speak more words of affection, hold her hand more, put his arm around her more, and hug her more. 2. "I... Continue reading

Processionary caterpillars travel in long, undulating lines, one creature behind the other. Jean Henri Fabre, the French entomologist, once led a group of these caterpillars onto the rim of a large flowerpot, so that the leader of the procession found itself nose to tail with the last caterpillar in the procession, forming a circle without end or beginning. Through sheer force of habit and, of... Continue reading

1. Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play and you will finally be able to move forward toward the life that God intended for you. . . with grace, strength, courage and confidence. 2. Today, and every day, deliver more than... Continue reading

Here's the great challenge of life--You can have more than you've got because you can become more than you are. I have found that income seldom will exceed your own personal development. Once in a while income takes a lucky jump, but unless you grow out to where it is, it will go back to where you are. Somebody once said if you took all... Continue reading

"Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!" wrote Thoreau. "I say let your affairs be as one, two, three and not as a hundred or a thousand." The art of simplicity is simply to simplify. . . Simplicity avoids the superficial, penetrates the complex, goes to the heart of the problem and pinpoints key factors. Simplicity does not beat around the bush. It does not take winding detours. It... Continue reading

Legend tells us that behind Lincoln's life there were three dynamic words of inspiration. Those three words were spoken to the young Lincoln as his mother was dying. Calling the boy to her, and tenderly stroking his face with her fingers, Lincoln's mother said: "Be somebody, Abel" The inspiration of those words lifted Lincoln from a log cabin to the White House. They inspired him... Continue reading

I know sometimes you feel like giving up. Every new day there’s seems to be no change in your life. All the troubles of your heart and worries keep on worsening! You wonder why everything is happening to you. You keep on asking yourself why you’re not lucky like other people. You keep on praying to God but so far He hasn’t answered your prayers....

One of the most important decisions you'll ever make is choosing the kind of universe you exist in: is it helpful and supportive or hostile and unsupportive? Your answer to this question will make all the difference in terms of how you live your life and what kind of Divine assistance you attract. Remember that you get what you think about, whether you want it... Continue reading

“Most of my life has been spent trying to shrink myself. Trying to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy. Because I didn’t want to be a burden. I didn’t want to be too much or push people away. I wanted people to like me. I wanted to be cared for and valued. I wanted to be wanted. So for years, I sacrificed... Continue reading

Someone asked me the other day if I had my life to live over would I change anything. My answer was no, but then I thought about it and changed my mind. If I had my life to live over again I would have waxed less and listened more. Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy and complaining about the shadow over my feet,... Continue reading

Be yourself and only yourself. Be careful what you allow into your body and into your space. Even the food you put into your body is crucial to your well-being and to your sense of Self. Take care of yourself. Do not allow anything outside of you to contaminate you. Whatever you read affects you. The television programs you watch, the movies you see and... Continue reading

Love in this era is different from what it was in the past. Today, we learn that everything in our outer world is a mirror of what goes on in our minds. If we want to find love and acceptance, then that’s what we must first give to ourselves. Most of us have long lists of reasons why we believe that we’re not lovable. This... Continue reading

I have learned from experience that happiness is an acquired skill. There is always something to complain about, even in the best of times. Happiness is not an objective reality so much as a subjective decision. Chronic complainers miss the boat. Many people are addicted to suffering and have a mental habit of pointing out the worst in people or situations. Not only are they... Continue reading

“I love you” means that I accept you for the person that you are, and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times. It means loving you even when you’re in a bad mood, or too tired to do the things I want to do.... Continue reading

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. The biggest men and... Continue reading

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than... Continue reading

I hope you fall in love with someone who always calls you back and never lets you fall asleep making you feel unwanted. I hope you fall in love with someone who holds your hand during the scary parts of horror movies and burns cookies with you while you’re both busy dancing around the kitchen. I hope you fall in love with someone who tickles... Continue reading

‘I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them... Continue reading

Find someone who truly loves you. Someone who never belittles you. Even in the heat of an argument. Someone who is gentle with you, but does not treat you like you are fragile. Someone who knows what you are capable of, and celebrates those pieces of you. Not someone who is intimidated by your strength. Someone who can call you out for being a brat,... Continue reading

The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, no matter what you try, will simply not like you. But the world is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. The ones who love you they are Your People. Don’t waste your finite time and heart trying to convince the people who aren’t your people that you have value. They... Continue reading

One of the amazing things we have been given as humans is the unquenchable desire to have dreams of a better life. Think of it: We can look deep within our hearts and dream of a better situation for ourselves and our families; dream of better financial lives and better emotional or physical lives; and certainly dream of better spiritual lives. But what makes this... Continue reading

“There comes a time when you have to stand up and say: This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me… or leave me. Accept me – or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of... Continue reading

“So you want to be happy? Then stop letting the smallest things ruin your whole entire day. If you’re feeling stressed, ask yourself: Will this matter in a year from now? If yes, then do something about it. If no, then let it go. If you’re bored with your daily routine, do something unexpected, be spontaneous. Never complain about being alone when surrounded by people... Continue reading

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down... Continue reading
