You Don't Have To Own A Cat To Appreciate This One! You don't even have tolike'em!We were dressed and ready to go out for the New Years Eve Party. We turnedon a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered our pet parakeetand put the cat in the backyard.We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived andwe opened the front door to leave the house.As we walked out the door, the cat we had put out in the yard, scoots backinto the house. We didn't want the cat shut in the house because she alwaystries to (9 comments)
Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change... The only thing that stays the same is "Change" and we are in charge of how we deal with that change. We can ignore it and stay the same in life. If we do that we will be falling deeper and deeper behind everyday... or we can change with the "change" in life for the better. Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change... What can you do today to start the "Change" to better yourself in life? (5 comments)
Attitude is a magnet... What you think is what you attract... You attitude is the biggest magnet in the world. Everything that happens in life has a positive and negative outlook. The birth of a child can be seen as a positive or negative outlook. The death of a loved one can be a positive or negative outlook. Being fired form a job, a promotion, a new relationship or breakup can be viewed as positive or negative. Attitude is a magnet... what you think is what you attract. Always look for the good in everything. Take 10 minutes everyday in (2 comments)
The only person you are DESTINED to become is the person you DECIDE to be... You are where you are today for the decisions you have made in the past. If you are a drifter in life then you will be nothing but a drifter all your life. To be happy and successful in all parts of your life we have to DECIDE to be happy and successful. That happiness and successfuliness comes from you being DESTINED to be happy and successful.Decide your destiny today and make it happen. (2 comments)
NEVER GIVE UP... Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it... You are better and smarter than "Obstacles". Obstacles are stationary and week. We as a human society have the abitity, smarts and physical strength to conquer anything. Everyone heard the phrase "There's more than one way to skin a cat".... well, there is more than one way to face an obstacle. Never Give Up !!!! (5 comments)
Life has no remote. Get up and change it yourself !!! If you were to go back in time and see the day you left high school, would you be happy with the life you have now? The money you make now? Your weight? Health? Relationships? Everyone is going to say "No" to at least one of these questions. For any of the questions you said "No" to, what will it take to make that/those answers be a "Yes". It will take actions. To many people are not where they want to be in life but they are waiting for that (5 comments)
You can have anything you want if you are willing to give up that belief that you can't have it... What do you want in life? What would it take to get what you want in life? Everyone can have anything they want in life. Two great books to read are; The Slight Edge (read that first), then read Think and Grow Rich. Those are two of the most powerful books out there. You can have anything you want if you are willing to give up that belief that you can't have it... Why would anyone have the belief that (8 comments)
The greatest pleasure in life is doing what others say you cannot do... If you give complete focus on what you want to accomplish then nothing can stop you. On that journey there will be people that will tell you that you can't do it. Put all you focus and energy into it and tell them "Watch me". Nothing can stop a person with a determined mind to accomplish what they have as a burning desire to "Make it happen". (6 comments)
You don't have to see the whole staircase, Just take the first step... In baseball you can not steal second base if you leave your left foot on first base. We have to have an idea, have confidence in that idea, and a BURNING desire to achieve it and do the most important next... Take that first step towards achieving your goals and dreams. Most people can dream it but are to afraid to get of their ass to do it because they can not see the whole staircase. Take that first step and have FAITH, a BURNING DESIRE, and DETERMINATION and (0 comments)
How others see you is not important... and it never will be., their opinion is not the same as your. You see the WHOLE picture and other do not. It's impossible for anyone to know your desires, goals, motivations, ideas, etc...How you see yourself means everything... You and only YOU can place a value on anything and everything. YOU should hold your head up high and know you are great. Be great, do great things, believe in yourself, and do good for others. You follow that path, you will be a super hero regardless of how others see you. (3 comments)
Worrying is a waste of time... I think everyone that reads this and my other blogs know how I feel about worrying. It doesn't change anything... It's a waste of space within your thought process and It messes with your mind and steals your happiness...Do you want that in your life? I don't think so, worrying causes stress and stress causes premature aging, strokes, hear attacks, weigh gain, uncertain thinking, etc... Stop worrying and start living. (5 comments)
This is the perfect dream trick for any father to play. Actually any mother can also use this to check out their daughters new boy friend or girl friend. Texting is one of the greatest tools we have ever been privilaged to have in our world of electronics.Just please do NOT text while driving. (4 comments)
I cheated on my fears, broke up with my doubts... And they are the to best ways two use cheating and breaking up.Got engaged to my FAITH and now... I'm marring my DREAMS... And it's the best thing anyone can do. There is NO ONE in the world that can say they are successful, happy and/or healthier living with fear and doubts more then they are faithful and living out their dreams. (6 comments)
Most obstacles melt away when we make up our minds to walk boldly through them... those obstacles are part of the journey to test our "Will" and see if we are strong enough and bold enough to accept what are want. It's just like FEAR, fear is a False Evidence Appearing Real. Once we face those fears and take action, those fears melt away. (4 comments)
I have chosen to be HAPPY because it is good for my health... Feeling happy or sad or upset is a choice. I have been all three and let me tell you; being happy is much funner and it makes life alot easier to live. Being happy creates emotion stability and confidence. Being sad or upset brings on depression. Depression makes the body hurt, beats your thoughts into submission and makes your body hurt easily and makes the muscles and joints stiff and sore.Being happy is healthier for your mind body, heart and soul. Don't worry...Be happy. (2 comments)
Stand up for what you believe in, even if it means standing alone... What's more important, standing up for what you believe in and getting new friends along that path or not standing up for what you believe in and keeping your old friends?Standing alone for a short time and then gaining new friends that are on your side are MUCH better than living a life wondering "What if..."Don't live a life of "What if".

Surround yourself with people who believe in your dreams... And you will be prone to stay on track to reach your dreams.Surround yourself with people who do not believe in your dreams... and you are more prone to never reach them.The people you surround yourself with WILL make a difference in your life. Today is a great day to reevaluate your friends and sphere if influence in your life. (5 comments)
Your mind will quit a thousand times before your body will. Feel the fear and do it anyway... I will turn 40 in about two weeks and seen alot of things in life that my mind told me not to do but my soul told me to keep going and to it anyways. Fear is a self inflicted wound... It can and will stop you from expanding your life in every way. Fear is not your friend... It is the enemy of your soul. It WILL rob you in life. Feel the fear and do it anyways. No excuses.

There is power is positivity... When we wake up in the morning we are either in a positive or negative attitude. Either one can be changed. I never start the day without a positive attitude. When you get up in the morning you should start out the day being happy and thankful to GOD that you have that new day. Your morning shower should be your wake up call to get positive and to start the day with vigor and excitement. There is power in positivity and everyone has the right to start the day that way... there are no (7 comments)
If you are not willing to learn, No one can help you... And you have no one to blame but yourself.If you are determined to learn, No one can stop you... And no one will. Determination comes from a "Burning Desire" from within yourself. You can do ANYTHING if you are willing to learn how to do it. No one can stop you but yourself. (2 comments)
