The Reason

“Everything happens for a reason.”

I agree… & it’s my job to find out the reason that things happen to me.

I used to swing back & forth between being lazy minded & not looking into anything; and over analyzing everything & focusing on a bunch of unimportant details.

The goal for today: find the delicate balance between these 2 extremes… because finding out the reasons that things happen to me, will help me prevent mistakes & regain control of my life!

Have a great day everybody!


“Seek rather to comfort, than to be comforted” ~St. Francis. I was miserable when getting my comfort was more important than giving you comfort.

“To understand than to be understood” ~St. Francis. I needed to stop demanding that you understand my needs, while I ignored yours.

“To love than to be loved” ~St. Francis. There is a big difference between giving love & getting love… try it both ways & see which one really feels better.

The goal for today: GIVE… Comfort, Understanding & Love!

Have a great day everybody!

Don’t Crawl

“As God’s people we stand on our feet; we don’t crawl before anyone” ~Anon.

There is a very fine line between “Don’t sweat the small stuff” & becoming a doormat.

Most of my life I would avoid confrontation because I was afraid, but now I’m taking a different approach.

If God deems it unimportant, then I will let it roll of my back, but when God says “Stand & Fight”… then that’s exactly what I will do!

The goal for today: don’t sweat the small stuff, but stand up & fight for what I know in my heart is Right!

Have a great day everybody!

Problem… Or Solution

There is a very simple solution to all of our problems but we are so focused on the problem, that we lose touch with the solution.

We can share all of the intimate details of our problems, but in the grand scheme of things… all problems have the same root cause.

Selfishness, resentment, dishonesty & fear… these 4 things are the cause of all our problems, regardless of the details.

Now that we got that out of the way… we can give our full attention to the solution.

The goal for today: focus on the solution!

Have a great day everybody!

Why Me?

About eleven years ago, something wonderful happened to me & I’d be lying if I said I didn’t tend to think… “Why me… what did I do to deserve this wonderful gift?”

Well, it didn’t take long to get my answer.

I was given this gift very specifically to pay it forward… to pass it on.

The fact of the matter is that we, ALL OF US, are worthy of Happiness, Peace & Freedom… but we have to reach out & grab it.

The goal for today: know that being willing to share a miracle is the best way to receive a miracle!

Have a great day everybody!


“You thought the error into existence, now unthink it” ~Emmet Fox.

Maybe I can’t right think my way out of a broken leg (maybe)… but I absolutely can right think my way out of depression, anxiety, anger, sadness, fear, etc… etc.

If I’m feeling anything other than happy, joyous & free… I must change my thinking & the best thing that I have found to change it to, is helping others.

It’s impossible to be depressed if I’m thinking about helping you.

The goal for today: don’t take my word for it… try it!

Have a great day everybody!


I want to be understanding rather than angry.

I get angry when I fail to understand people.

For example: I get angry when people say negative things about me, because I fail to understand why they said it… & why it hurt me.

They said it because they are afraid that they’re not good enough & it hurt me because I’m afraid I’m not good enough.

The goal for today: don’t feel hurt!

If the rumor is true… fix it & if it’s not… disregard it! So, in short, be understanding!

Have a great day everybody!
