I wish you light in your darkest hours. When life seems to be confusing or empty, and when your path seems to be hidden in the shadows of pain, doubt, despair, or unrest, may you find the light inside of you that will help you to see things as they truly are, for every night comes to an end, every storm runs its course, and...

We often take so many things for granted. It is important to learn about the art of looking for and appreciating the real blessings of life, great and small. There is an old saying that "a donkey may carry a heavy load of sandlewood on its back without ever knowing its value; all the donkey knows is the weight of its load!" Often we, too,...

I love the bumper sticker that reads: DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK. Oh, the nonsense my brain can conjure up. The fears. The resentments. The dramas. It's like a movie theater that plays the worst B movies some days. My friend Aaron, who is a recovering alcoholic, said something profound once: "My brain is trying to kill me." I laughed, but realized it was true... Continue reading

When I go out jogging in the morning, I sometimes notice how much weather influences people's response to life and to one another. When it is gray and rainy, many people look unhappy. When the sun is out and the temperature and humidity are comfortable, people are smiling and calling out to one another, "Hello, isn't it a lovely day." For me, a lovely day... Continue reading

Are you happy? Is there something about your life that causes your unhappiness and which you feel you must change in order to be happy? Can you identify what you need to do to make that change? Often we resist making significant changes in our lives. We are comfortable with the way things are and don’t want to expend the energy to make changes. We... Continue reading

When we are able to be thankful for what we have…truly thankful, not just words we recite but a feeling of thanks from within, our world outlook changes. Consider the word “being”. It is a verb, an action word. When we are in the action of being it is something we are and all the characteristics associated with what we are “being” apply. Imagine the... Continue reading

Most of us spend our days going through life trying to figure out how we can get things. I'm no exception--I focus on things like how I can earn more money, what new music I'd like to hear, whether I can afford something right now, how to get someone to do something I want (or think I need) them to do. There are others, though,... Continue reading

The issue you face, when you don’t realize all of the wonderful gifts you have, is that it can be incredibly overwhelming! When you focus far too much on your problems, perceived shortcomings or other obstacles you get yourself STUCK.

We say "peace of mind," but actually peace is never in the mind. When we want peace, we have to go beyond the realm of the mind. If you think that you are twenty years old or forty years old, then you will have to struggle with your mind to even have a glimpse of peace. But if you can feel that you are just... Continue reading

Countless millions worldwide have benefited from Napoleon Hill's work. Now it is your turn. 1. Definiteness of Purpose. The starting point of all achievement, Definiteness of Purpose--knowing what your goal is, knowing what you want--fills you with a success-consciousness and protects you against failure. Exercise: Decide on a major goal in your live--either personal or professional. How much time will you give yourself to achieve... Continue reading

''A good relationship happens when two people accept each other’s past, support each other’s present, and encourage each other’s future, without trying to micromanage any of part it. So don’t rush relationships, especially those that feel overbearing. Find a partner, and friends for that matter, who encourage you to grow, who won’t cling to you, who will let you go out into the world, and... Continue reading

Whenever you go out of doors, draw the chin in, carry the crown of the head high, and fill the lungs to the utmost; drink in the sunshine; greet your friends with a smile, and put soul into every hand-clasp. Do not fear being misunderstood; and never waste a minute thinking about your enemies. Try to fix firmly in your mind what you would like... Continue reading

Grudges take up brain capacity and prevent us from performing at our very best. What we focus our minds upon grows; this is true of hatred too. Therefore, it is impossible to truly achieve great things for ourselves when we have a lot of our energetic capacity tied up in negativity. Remember that forgiveness is primarily for YOU. It free up your energy tremendously. So... Continue reading

There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good.

The Essense, The Nittus Grittus If you are unhappy, be unhappy. Do not judge yourself for being that way. It is wonderful to be unhappy, it is God expressing emotion. Love your unhappiness. It means you are ready for change. You are ready to go forward, yet you mourn for the old; you are not ready to let go. Allow the unhappiness, there is purposefulness... Continue reading

Dance Like Nobody Is Watching We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old enough and we'll be more content when they are. After that we're frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage. We tell... Continue reading

Relationships - of all kinds - are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold on to some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect... Continue reading
