Be Yourself

For crying out loud, stop comparing and start living!  You'll be happier with your life, I guarantee. 

This is crucial: the most difficult thin

g in the world is to be who you are not. Pretending and trying to be someone else is the official pastime of the human race.

The easiest thing in the world is to be yourself

My uncle died, one of them at least. It happens as my family ages. Some what expected still sad news for someone I could confide in.

"Death where is your victory, death where is your sting"

His siblings will travel across the country from part of the USA with snow and cold to our Florida climate.  Together we'll share stories, memories and love

As someone who's been close to death far too often this passing in our congregant family life is one more marking of the passing of time

Uncle George led a good life.  I'll celebrate that

My Story

When Craig Ferguson said he's changing how he does comedy he said this too

"I am the expert on my own story"

That's true for all of us. We each have our own lives, our own story and we're the ones living it

No one knows me like me. Not my siblings, my boyfriend - no one

Let's live knowing that, embracing that and sharing our own story with others authentically

Just Be

Be happy, be confident, be YOU

Ya gotta believe in yourself before all else

Know I believe in YOU

Asking for help is not a sign of failure but one of strength.
Something wrong, need a hand with a project or problem being stoic and "toughing it out" won't get it done. Ask for help

Is New Better?

With each "New Year" so many of us use this time to say 'we're making changes' in parts of our lives
From daily routines to future plans.

Is mid winter the best time to make such changes?  For you it maybe. For others maybe not

I choose to make changes as I go along in life - to me that's continual growth

Whether you made a New Years Resolution or not I hope we all continue to change and grow from all of our life experiences.

Just a Smile

One smile at a friend or a stranger can help with endorphins, create empathy
and break tensions
A smile is a universal "feel good"

Let's share a smile with someone today.  I know one will come back to you
