Fear Is Harmless… Unless You Give It the Energy to Harm You

Even when you do… fear doesn’t sleep. It’s all around you. It’s never satisfied unless it has your attention. Whenever fear can’t get your attention while you are awake, it will do its best to insert itself into your midnight thoughts – even your dreams – if you allow it.

Fear affects our lives in unseen ways, causing worry, hesitation, confusion, anxiety and avoidance. It can bring you to your knees… even cripple your lifestyle and your peace – if you allow it.

Truth is… fears control us in ways we never realize, unacknowledged and more powerful because of their unknown workings.

Fear can stop your dreams.

Fear can stop you from taking risks.

Fear can stop you from pursuing love.

Fear can stop you from seeking adventure.

Fear can stop you from speaking in public.

Fear can stop you from starting a new venture, etc….

It can cause you discomfort. It can cause you to procrastinate, overeat, and be distracted with worry. Continue reading Fear Is Harmless… Unless You Give It the Energy to Harm You

When You Make The Decision To Change… You Have To Make Time Too

It’s up to you to make a commitment to change. It’s a big decision, and the decision is all yours. When and how… is your choice too. But, what if you had to make a list of all the habits you would like to change or create, how many changes would be on the list? Would you actually make the changes? Could you actually make the changes?

It Doesn’t Matter What Others Think of Me. Or Does It?

People who repeatedly attack your confidence and self-esteem… are quite aware of your potential, even if you are not.” ― Wayne G. Trotman

If someone tells you that they don’t care what other people think, they are fooling themselves. Actually, it shouldn’t matter… but for some reason it does.

No one is free from worry.

Everyone is trying to look good in the eyes of others.

Everyone stresses out about how they look.

Everyone stresses about how they’re perceived.

Everyone stresses about whether people think they’re good people.

That’s why Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and mirrors exist. Continue reading It Doesn’t Matter What Others Think of Me. Or Does It?

LOVE Always Protects, Trusts, Hopes, and Perseveres…

Life is short! We all have a limited time to live a remarkable life. Some people live for seconds, days, years, decades — but nobody is here forever. That’s why; we have to take the time to give the best we have to offer to all of our relationships. Love always goes the extra mile.

People change! It’s a fact we have to live with every single day of our lives. Changes in life outside our relationships with family, friends, significant others, and co-workers… will impact what we want and need from our relationships with each person in every facet of our lives. Since change is inevitable, welcoming it as an opportunity to enhance our relationships is more fruitful than trying to keep it from happening.

No matter where we are in life, everything that involves building better connections with the people in our lives will take a great deal of love, patience and understanding. There’s no room for blame; but only room for total consideration of others and where they are in life. Continue reading LOVE Always Protects, Trusts, Hopes, and Perseveres…

Bullied youngster sitting alone.

When I was a kid, boys my age loved to brag on their dads. It was a daily thing on the playground. In those competitive conversations, every boy claimed his dad’s rightful place on the throne as “The World’s Toughest Dad.” I can still hear them saying, “My dad is bigger than your dad!” or “My dad is smarter than your dad!” But the best one of all was, “My dad is stronger than your dad!” But the last one I mentioned, was only used in threatening situations… when a fight was about to break out. It was a clear scare tactic. And, it was a fair warning that, “If you mess with me… you’d better beware, because my dad will come and deal with everybody out here… and handle everyone’s dad, later.” Of course it never happened! But, all the little fellas had confidence in what they were saying. Continue reading GOD Can Turn Bad Situations into Something Good…
