Inflation

These days, you cannot go one day without hearing about inflation. Inflation is like a tax we pay without legislation.

But what about other types of inflation like inflated egos, inflated truths (lies) and inflated expectations? We can live humbly, tell the truth and set realistic expectations without legislation. Think about it…

Be Yourself!

All of us want to feel accepted. We want others to like us. Sometimes this desire to be included leads us to act like someone we aren’t.

It’s more important to live authentically, to show the world our true selves. When we live true to our inner spirit, we are the same person no matter the crowd we are in. We are ourselves…

Show Yourself!

People are guarded. They are afraid to show who they truly are because of the fear of judgment. We are created in the image of God. He doesn’t make mistakes, nor does he second guess himself.

People will judge you no matter what. However, they have no authority over your life. Authority belongs to God alone, and He sees who we truly are. Live your life to please Him, not the world…

Trials

Trials are placed in our lives to grow us…to strengthen us. We have a choice when faced with challenges: we can rise to the challenge or we can shrink from it. To rise, think of the trials of life as opportunities. It might not make what you are going through any easier, but it gives purpose to the challenge…

Cuts…

Why do people feel the need to criticize others and put them down?

The genesis of criticism and cut-downs is the critics own self esteem. When you feel good about yourself inside, you look for the good in others. And if you find yourself in a position where you need to offer some constructive criticism, choose your timing well and use gentleness and self control when delivering the message.

Bring light into the lives of others…

Broken…

When a car breaks down, we get it repaired. Why don’t we fix ourselves?

All of us are broken in some way. Our lives might look good, even perfect on social media, but we hide our true selves. All of us have past hurts, pain, unresolved issues and great memories. This makes us who we are.

We can fix our emotional brokenness through self-work. People avoid this kind of work because it’s hard to really look at yourself, your flaws and patterns which don’t serve you well. But doing the hard work on yourself is so worthwhile. Take the first brave step to freedom. And keep going…

Dreams…

We seek fulfillment in our hearts through the power of our dreams. When the day arrives that you discover your true purpose, nothing in the universe can stop you except yourself. There will be plenty of critics, naysayers and dream killers along the way, but pay no attention to them. This is your dream. Seek guidance from the Creator, get started and keep going…
