Live to Love

Live to Love

Here's the challenge...for one day, love everything and everyone around you. Make the conscious decision to love and show love in absolutely every aspect of your life. Love the people that you come into contact with, and deal with every situation in a loving way.  See the good in people, see the positive in circumstances, and let your love shine like the brightest light in a dark room. It's something that all of us should do every single day, but for now, just give it a try today.  I honestly believe that if our focus was to love [...]

Let Them Know

Let Them Know

Make sure that the people you love the most in this world know how much you care about them.  Tell them. None of us are promised a tomorrow, and all of us will no doubt wish for one more opportunity to tell that special someone how much we love them once they've moved on from this life. You've probably heard it said that you should live each day as if it was your last.  That's pretty sage advice.  Although, if you're anything like me, that probably means you'd end up in jail at some point.  However, assuming you don't get crazy and [...]

A Little Magic

A Little Magic

Are you ready for a challenge?  It's not a ridiculously hard one, and it's not one that will take you more than 48 hours...but it's one that has a really cool payoff.  Are you interested? Okay...try this little experiment for two days. Whoever you interact with; at home, at work, at the grocery store, in church, at school, on the street corner, or wherever...interact with kindness and love in your heart.  Look for the goodness in every single person that you speak with.  Greet everyone with a smile, and make sure you say something [...]

Eviction Notice

Eviction Notice

It's that time of the year, people...out with the old and in with the new! So let's get 2013 started the right way. If you're harboring any bitterness or anger or even hatred inside yourself because of something some numb skull did to you at the office, or maybe because of some silly comment your sister made about you in public...it's time to cut it loose.  The old stuff has simply got to go. It's easy to take on the responsibility of lugging around negative thoughts and bad feelings.  In fact, it almost feels like your duty when [...]

Happy New You!

Happy New You!

Okay, I’m going to look ahead a little here… It’s Wednesday morning, January 6th, 2010.  You’re just about settled back into whatever routine you were settled into before the holiday season started. You’re a little groggy… Now it’s time to take stock.  You look for your list of New Year’s Resolutions.  You did make a list, right?  (If not, do that NOW…so this set up will be more meaningful to you) You start at the top of your list: Lose that last 15 pounds Eat better Spend more time with my family Don’t [...]

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 6

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 6

This has been a fun little series of posts for me.  It has really helped me...gosh, I hope it has helped you, too! As I have written these entries, they have reminded me of the simple yet awesome miracle of being a parent, and also how important it is to raise our children in a positive manner.  Teaching them to love themselves for who they are, and that they are worthy of great things really establishes a base for them to build on in their loves.  Helping them find their talents and gifts and being supportive of their dreams allows them [...]

Judgment Call

Judgment Call

It's likely that there is no such thing as objective reality.  Okay, that was a little deep for the first sentence of the post, sorry about that, but hear me out... Each of us sees everything in life just a little differently.  It makes sense because we are all totally unique.  Everything we observe or experience, we do so with our own subjectivity.  Meaning that everything in life is truly subjective, or slightly different for all, depending on who the observer might be.  How does that sound?  Probably even more crazy... If you [...]

Imagine That…or This

Imagine That…or This

I was hanging out with my kids the other night and we were talking about all sorts of cool stuff.  We were laughing and having a wonderful time, as we often do in our crazy household. At some point during the conversation it occurred to me that one of the best parts about talking with the kids is in just listening to what they come up with next.  Kids have such wonderful imaginations. They are pure and they are free.  They haven’t taken the cultural beat-down that we have as adults.  They haven’t been introduced to limitation.  [...]
