Walk yourself out of your bad mood. Studies show that even a 10 minute walk immediately boots brain chemistry to increase happiness... Attitudes are more important than facts so when in a bad mood due to a situation or even just waking up on the wrong side of the bed, it's time to go for a 10 minute walk. Walking will clear the mind. (5 comments)
It's nice to be important... Being important will not always make you nice, some people force there importance on people and have egos about it. BUT, it's more important to be nice... Being nice will always be more important to everyone around you. And being nice will always be an important part of your life and te lifes of those you are nice to. How nice are you? Truthfully? Be nice to at least 10 people today and everyday. (2 comments)
GOD is the best listener, you don't need to shout, nor cry out loud... That should be a big relief for the smart people that are followers or GOD but embarrassed to show it in public. Because HE hears even the very silent prayer of a sincere heart... The power of prayer is so under utilized until a person is already in trouble and asking for GOD to help. Why wait till you are in need of help to us the power of prayer. We all should be talking to GOD everyday. Today is Good Friday. Make it a great Friday by starting off your (3 comments)
You were born with all the unique abilities, knowledge and talents you need for your mission in life... What is your mission in life? GOD created us all to be unique.You don't need to compare yourself to anyone else... When you compare yourself to others you will have envy and resentment, and both of those will hold you back in life and you will carry a grudge.Just be yourself and start shining... You were born an original... Don't die a copy. Be yourself. It's the best way to be. (4 comments)
I think I found the perfect dog's name. Can you imagine having to tell your friends, parents and kids that you have to walk Naked down the road. The funny thing would to be telling people you go to church with. I would like to get into this deeper but I have to go... Time to walk naked down the road myself. (6 comments)
NEVER JUDGE It's easy to look at people and make quick judgements about them, their present and their pasts, ( we all do) but you'd be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. (women are masters at hiding their pain) What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight, And more often than not, it's lined wth cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul. Never be to quick to judge a person. I knew a person years ago that no one liked at (4 comments)
Life is full of new beginnings... Every day in every way is a new beginning. Every day you wake up, it's a new beginning and new beginnings mean new paths to travel. Are you thankful for the new beginning of today? Are you going to make today the new beginning of a new start.May this be one of your happiest ever. (4 comments)
If you want to live in a world of peace, encourage kindness. both in yourself and in those around you... In life, we get what we give and if we are angry, possessive, jealous, and carry pain and hate... What do you think you will see most in life? The same thing.If you are happy, forgiving, trusting, trustworthy, and have, peace and thankfulness... What do you think you will see most in life? the same thing. The choice is yours and it starts today. (1 comments)
We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and APPRECIATING what we do have.... Think about that for a minute. If you were able to read that did you recognize and appreciate the fact of being able to see it and read it? Recognizing and appreciating are two aspects that many people forget to be thankful for.Spread LOVE to those around you; remember that not only today but EACH DAY you can make a difference in someone's life, you don't need an excuse or a special day to (4 comments)
If it causes you more pain than happiness, less laughter and more tears... There's no day like today to throw it away... Today is the first day of the rest of your life so if you are experiencing more pain than happiness and more tears than laughter... Then change the channel of your life. It may be a hard thing to do but it's going to be the best channel in your life from this point forward. Get out there and make it happen. (3 comments)
Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.... There is no reason to be around people that are going to pull you down in life. I once saw a quote that said " Don't argue with in idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience" So make life fun and surround yourself with great people. The greater the people in your life, the greater you life will be and the greater you will become. (6 comments)
Waking up this morning, I smile... We all have the ability and option to smile from the moment we wake up till when we go to bed. If you are not smiling you are not living life to the fullest.24 brand new hours are before me...How many times can you smile within the next 24 hours? I vow to life fully in each moment and look at all beings with eyes of compassion... You will win more firends with a smile than you will with your ability at your job. Mix your work with your smile and you are more than (5 comments)
If you are depressed, you are livingin the past... So people only live in the past because that is the only experience they have in life. They can not see or believe the chances they have in life at the moment.If you are anxious, you are living in the future... The future is a great place to PLAN to be, not a place to worry about. Worrying about what is not here yet will only bring negative thoughts and actions to your life. Planning for the future is a positive aspect.If you are at peace, you are living in the (3 comments)
GOD vs Satan... Who looks more intimidating? Who looks more powerful? Who looks more vengeful? But who is more at peace and is full of faith? GOD starts with G for Goodness and Great, Jesus starts with J for Justice.Satan starts with S for Sin and Suffering.Temptation is a powerful force to deal with but Faith and being at peace with GOD are stronger when they are both aligned with each other.BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD... That is one of my greatest bible quotes. Knowing this quote and saying it with Faith and being at peace with GOD (6 comments)

STOP being afraid of what could go wrong and think of what could go right... Life is to short to be thinking of everything that could go wrong. It's good to think things through when making plans and think out what could go right and what could go wrong but IF we want to succeed we have to focus on what could go right. Keep what could go wrong on the back burner of your mind but ALWAYS keep those thought of what could go right fresh in your mind and strive and thrive off those thoughts. (0 comments)

You must never limit your challenges... Most of the people in the world put limits on what the can do.. Putting those limits on yourself makes it so much more challenging to get past your self-setting limits. We live in a free world so why limit your challenges in life?

With an open mind and no internal limits placed upon yourself you can go as far as your vision will let you. How far (5 comments)
