Let’s Die, Living

Let’s Die, Living

I was sitting around the other day thinking about death. Now, before you start imagining that I've lost whatever part of my mind is left, and that I may be heading for a real dark place in this post, let me explain. I found myself with an opportunity to lose myself in some quality quiet time earlier this week, and so I decided to dive in.  Somehow, I was drawn to start thinking about life.  The whole cycle;  the experiences we all have, the things we all learn (or don't), the places we go, and eventually, I started thinking about our [...]

Two Things You Can Do

Two Things You Can Do

Life is a gift. And as far as I can tell, we should be savoring as much of it as possible while we're here.  So, how are you doing? If you answered with anything other than totally awesome, here are two quick suggestions that will help you start getting the most out of each and every day. 1. Do something you're passionate about every single day. Whatever it is, take the time to do it.  It could be spending time with your family or friends, cooking a fabulous meal, reading a book, running around the block, listening to a piece of [...]

No Regrets

No Regrets

"Running through the changes, going through the stages, Coming round the corners in my life, Leaving doubt to fate, staying out too late, Waiting for the moon to say goodnight. And I could cry for the time I've wasted, But that's a waste of time and tears, And I know just what I'd change if I went back in time somehow, But there's nothing I can do about it now" -lyrics from "Nothing I Can Do About It Now" by Beth Nielsen-Chapman Willie Nelson sings that song and it's one of my all time favorites.  I [...]

Possibly Anything

Possibly Anything

I sometimes find myself searching the internet for motivational or inspirational poems that I can share with you here.  Tonight I found one that's pretty cool, and which I had never read before.  It's attributed to that world famous author we've all come to know and love, Unknown.  Sometimes it's better that way, since you never really know if the right person is getting credit for saying wonderful things. Regardless of who wrote it, the words are certainly inspirational.  And I hope that they move you and motivate you to do something [...]

Take Two

Take Two

Okay, here are 2 things you should start doing every single day.  The payoff for you will far exceed the effort it takes to get started, and if you make these things habits, your life will be more amazing than you thought possible.  They're simple things, and yet they can add energy and meaning to every single day that you're around.  How cool does that sound?  It's true.  Here's the short list: 1. Laugh If you only get one thing from this post, make sure it's this one.  Take the time to laugh every single day. It really is the [...]

The Optimist Frowned

The Optimist Frowned

I was reading something the other day and some dude was writing about how the people who talk about positive thinking are all full of it because nobody can be positive all the time.  I guess if he has come across people who think you have to be positive all the time in order to be positive...he makes a good point. But, I thought his statements were a little off because not everyone who believes in the power of positive thinks you have to be positive all the time, every single minute in order to be a positive person. If you read my [...]

The One Thing That Changes Everything

The One Thing That Changes Everything

Life is what you make it. You can choose to be miserable or you can choose to be content. Regardless of what you have or don't have. You can choose to be happy or you can choose to be upset. Regardless of the circumstances that you think are defining you. You can choose to sit on your butt and do nothing or you can choose to get out there and LIVE your life with passion and purpose. Your choice. No matter what. And that is the plain, no-BS, absolute, bottom line, truth of all truths. You get to choose how you take the [...]

Three Steps to Achievment

Three Steps to Achievment

Accomplishing your goals really comes down to having a definitive plan and being able to execute it. In fact, one of the reasons that so many folks get sidetracked on their way to achieving their goals is that they don't have a plan at all.  Because a plan is so important, I wanted to share something meaningful with you that would have the greatest positive impact. So here are three steps that I have found to be incredibly effective in achieving anything you want in life: 1. Decide what it is you are trying to achieve Seems like a [...]

It’s Time to Get Your Positive ON!

It’s Time to Get Your Positive ON!

Everybody needs a little positive mojo in their life.  Even the most optimistic among us can use encouragement each day.  Let's face it, the world can be a pretty negative place sometimes. You may be one of those optimistic people who make the conscious decision each day to be positive.  If you are, I think that's awesome, and I say congrats to you!  You might also stay focused on your goals most of the time.  If so, again, I say to you, I love it! However, in the same breath, I would also tell you that you still need some of that [...]

Don’t Sweat the Big Stuff

Don’t Sweat the Big Stuff

I think it's pretty much consensus at this point in our history that stress is bad for us. It doesn't solve anything, makes us feel bad, and wastes a lot of energy on things we don't necessarily have control over.  It also makes us sick! Doctors have linked just about every lousy thing that can happen to you or I to stress.  Not that stress is the sole cause of many of our ailments, but it seems to be a consistent contributor.  And certainly, when added to the mix, only seems to make things worse. So why is it that we stress out?  [...]

Three Simple Things

Three Simple Things

I'll tell you about three things you could do every day that might make your experience here on the planet a little more enjoyable. You certainly don't have to do these things.  Just because they work for me, doesn't mean they'll work for you, right?  After all, we're all on a different part of the path, we're all at a different place in the journey, and we're all unique.  The things that one person finds to be extremely effective in moving themselves to the next level may not be exactly what the doctor ordered for someone else.  I get [...]
