Reach Out…

We are in the final stages of the pandemic, and that’s something to be grateful for. Yet the damage to mental health rages on. Reach out to your friends and family, work colleagues and acquaintances to see how they are doing. Really doing. And if you aren’t feeling just right, please find someone to talk to. There is light on the other side of the dark…

Our Future…

Today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders. We are failing them. In 2016, suicide became the #2 killer of kids. In 2020 a study revealed that 78% of students felt lonely. It’s ironic that so many kids could feel lonely. We live in the most technologically connected culture ever.

The solution? One thing we can do is make certain our children feel loved and accepted. Hold them accountable for their actions, but don’t let them feel unloved because they made a mistake or two.

We must turn this around, and fast. It begins with us…

Guarded…

On social media, we see pictures and posts of perfect lives. This is great! We should celebrate happy moments. Yet, think of how much compassion we would see from others if we sometimes showed how hellish life can be. Something worth considering…

Opinions…

We concern ourselves about what others think of us. Their opinions do not matter because they have no authority over our lives. Focus on yourself, and take care of yourself mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Everything will fall into place. Let others think whatever they want. You know the truth…

Inside/Out

All across society, we see people who are trying to find themselves through external means. I’ve done it myself, which I discussed in my book, “Killing My Father Then Finding Him.” Here’s some truth: we find our value when we realize God created us exactly how He wanted us to be. Accept that truth and you will accept yourself…

What Matters Most…

Are you trying to be the busiest person around? After all, our culture believes that high activity is the honorable way. Do not fall into the trap of being too busy for the important things: family, friends and your health.

Inner Peace…

Are you at peace? Contentment brings inner peace to your life, while unresolved issues of the past can stir up chaos. Find it in your heart to forgive those who hurt you, and forgive yourself for past mistakes. Move forward.

Appearances…

We don’t know what others are going through. Mental health and wellness have been shattered in the past year because of isolation, lack of socialization, and sometimes the loss of loved ones. The most well put together person on the outside might be doing all they can to just hold it together…they are making an appearance.

Worry…

We were not born with worries. We learned how to worry. This means we can unlearn worryingly about things. Put your faith and trust in a Higher Being who knows everything and controls everything. We get to control our attitude, and that includes the choice to worry…or not.
