Restoration…

We love happy endings to movies, don’t we? Hallmark has perfected this. Do you know why we love these movies? It’s because we want restoration, we want happy endings in our lives…we want to know order will be restored and everything will make sense in the world. These movies give us hope that they are possible.

Free Yourself…

Is there someone in your life you need to forgive? Perhaps an ex, a parent, or even yourself? Forgiveness is hard. We hold onto past hurts, giving them life, but keeping the pain inside hurts us. It robs us of living fully today.

I had to forgive my parents for years of emotional and physical abuse. Fortunately, the damage they did to my self-esteem wasn’t permanent. By actively practicing gratitude, over time I was able to see my parents more clearly, understanding why they acted the way they did. I forgave them, and I was free. You can do it, too. Start with gratitude…

Meekness…

What type of person comes to mind when someone is described as “meek?” Weak and submissive? That would be wrong, because meekness means “strength under control.” Meek people are the ones everyone turns to when things are falling apart and leadership is needed. Want to be strong? Be meek…

Driven…

Whatever you get excited about, do more of that. The world needs driven people who are trying to do good. As for me, I’m just trying to spread some kindness, compassion and humor into a world in desperate need of it…

Oxymorons…

Everything we find humor in has an element of truth to it. Such as my favorite oxymoron:government efficiency!

Speaking of humor, I believe it’s important that we be able to laugh at ourselves. All of us have done some hilariously funny things. Our ability to look at ourselves and laugh is a reflection of our self confidence. Think about it,,,
