Divided

In the United States, we are more divided now than since the Civil War. There’s nothing civil about war. We are weakened and compromised when we stand apart. The media and the politicians are feeding this division, but we do not have to allow it. In truth, we are more alike than we are different. Stand up for what’s right. Let the dividers wallow in their own mess…

False Advertising

Turn on your television and Madison Avenue tells us that “blondes have more fun,” and you can drink beer and not get fat. None of it is true. It’s what you are led to believe. What messages, either internally generated or from the outside world are you believing about yourself? The world will beat you down, but you’re already doing a pretty good job of it yourself. Do not believe the lies. Believe in yourself…

Peace…

Today, Christmas Day is the most peaceful day of the year. Families and friends are together, enjoying the festivities. Yet, there are still people who aren’t sure where their next meal is coming from. Estranged relationships won’t be repaired because pride stands in the way. Take a brief moment to count your blessings, and remember to help those who are less fortunate. Peace to all…

Bring Light

If you look around, and you don’t have to look very far, I believe you will agree there is much darkness around us. We live in a broken world. People fight with each other over pointless things, which further divides us.

I believe we should be a light to others, bringing goodness and kindness with us. We won’t help everyone, but we will help some. Bring light and life into the lives of others…

Victimhood…

No one is a victim in the sense that someone else is keeping them from succeeding. Yes, bad things happen to us, but the bad stuff only prevents us from being successful and impactful if we allow it. The battle is in our minds. If you have a good mind and can think…you can do. It’s easier to blame than to do…

Blind Spots

We all have blind spots, things we can’t see or refuse to see in ourselves. It’s important to have friends who will gently point them out to us, especially if our blind spots prevent us from being our best. Don’t be defensive or make excuses. Be proactive about doing better…
