It's all new

Everything changes, nothing remains without change

If there's something in your life you don't like, find a way to make it better. Change is a constant
The earth spins, rain falls, we all age. My job description has changed, some times for the better, some times not.

We're all able to change our mind too - when I do I often find myself in a better place

Being Better

Each day I and you can too, strive to be something new. Learn something, read something, taste something

It's those moments we grow

We

While it's important to know and be YOU, so much of our lives work better as WE
Much like Lionel Richie sang "Say You, Say Me" we can say it together naturally.
From the bonds of blood family to those of 'trusted means of support" IE Good Friends
even our time on WoW, it's when WE connect we build community

Let's turn our Me into We

Hope

Hope has two beautiful daughters; their names are anger and courage. Anger at the way things are and courage to see that they do not remain as they are. 
                       ~ St. Augustine

Being Human

Today is a marking genius birthday, Dan Pallotta. I'm not certain if he said it first but it was because of him I hold this phrase as MY motto.

On this day another great man was born - Rev Dr. Martin Luther King who spoke of humanity, humility, and mostly being one

HumanKind - Be Both

I Believe

I've learned after many, many mistakes, miss starts and failures (I prefer to call "non accomplishments") I now believe in me & what I can do

You too can believe in you and what  is yours

All We Need

Telly Savalas character Kojak often said, "who loves ya baby" 

Well, I do and I hope YOU love your self too. Maybe it's the winter but I've read on Facebook (yes I know this is NOT a scientific study) how many people mentioned about dating or such.

"You're good enough and gosh darn people like me"   OK, it's clique but say it to your self and it becomes a mantra that will come true

The Drowning Man


A fellow was stuck on his rooftop in a flood. He was praying to God for help.

Soon a man in a rowboat came by and the fellow shouted to the man on the roof, "Jump in, I can save you."

The stranded fellow shouted back, "No, it's OK, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me."

So the rowboat went on.

Then a motorboat came by. "The fellow in the motorboat shouted, "Jump in, I can save you."

To this the stranded man said, "No thanks, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me. I have faith."

So the motorboat went on.

Then a helicopter came by and the pilot shouted down, "Grab this rope and I will lift you to safety."

To this the stranded man again replied, "No thanks, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me. I have faith."

So the helicopter reluctantly flew away.

Soon the water rose above the rooftop and the man drowned. He went to Heaven. He finally got his chance to discuss this whole situation with God, at which point he exclaimed, "I had faith in you but you didn't save me, you let me drown. I don't understand why!"

To this God replied, "I sent you a rowboat and a motorboat and a helicopter, what more did you expect?"



Live, Love, Laugh, Dance

LIVE - your life to the fullest
LOVE - with an unconditional Heart
LAUGH - till you pee your pants
DANCE- in the rain every chance you get

You Have the Power

If you  want it, focus on it: dream it and "make it so"
The only thing holding ME back is my  own failure to plan and focus

When I think I can achieve greatness, I know greatness will be mine

You, reader, are what you think you are and can be

More is Less

I cant say how many times I've heard "Less is more" while today I counter that with More brings less


More love, less fear; I choose to complain less and appreciate more; We can frown less and smile; Keep less to share more... the list goes on - it's about AFFIRMING each other.

Wasted Time

"Most time is wasted, not in hours, but in minutes. A bucket with a small hole in the bottom gets just as empty as a bucket that is deliberately kicked over." -- Paul J. Meyer

Have you caught yourself wasting time? Like water, time is a resource to use and give.

I'm Sorry

Besides those two words not used enough of "Thank you" are two just like them "I'm sorry"

An apology heartfelt can heal wounds or start on a path of recovering (note I didn't say RECOVERY) since it's two step process. The I'm sorry when followed with an acceptance is the sign of  growth

"I'm sorry" doesn't need the  follow up "but..."  that qualifies the sorry.

Many in twelve step programs find the "I'm sorry" step in Steps 8,9 and 10

Sure there will be times when we can't say "I'm sorry" face to face but the act of feeling it and meaning it are powerful.

I came across an interesting site where anyone can say "I'm sorry" (Joe Apology) anonymously: there's some heartfelt
messages there. I try to say "I'm sorry" in person when I can though





Past

Some of us "live in the past" and I don't mean those of us history buffs but those who retell stories of childhood, relationships, jobs, etc.

Do you constantly bring up WHAT was? Do you keep blaming parents when your over 35 years old?

Good chance your staying in that rut  called "The Past"

Let's look at our future, at our NOW and realize our past does have an influence but not control

Fear

"Fear Not The Celebration Of Your Life"


Write a new chapter in 2013


Love can be more than four letter word. It's the experience and sharing of You, Me and Us

For good luck and prosperity in the new year.
