"A shoemaker doesn’t exercise his faith by putting little crosses on his shoes. He does it by making the best shoes. He thus glorifies God and blesses the wearer." ~ Paraphrased from Martin Luther, Reformer, original thinker, one who challenges all to think for themselves, rather than blindly accepting the status quo.
Today, go out as who you truly are, and be the BEST you can be!
If you are a doctor, if you are a parent, if you are a friend, if you are a stranger, be the BEST one you can be.
I love you,
Who is behind the research? Who has control? These are questions to consider.

What is a doctor? Is there a sacred trust? What makes it important? We’re not just supposed to make our money and leave. There is a higher purpose. Let me explain.
Distractions from anxiety that Don’t Work: TV, computer, texting, movies, food and liquor.
The voice in your head of worry, anxiety, sadness keeps coming back.
The path to peace is via willingness. Willingness makes it easier. Are you searching? You are part-way there. Your longing takes you to willingness.
Willingness is a relief. It unfolds and leaves you able to feel gratitude. Willingness allows you to begin to let go of the harsh, horrid, negative thoughts and beliefs.
Otherwise, the thoughts and distractions keep you miserable, trapped in the false life they create. Begin a new habit of gratitude. That works.
Gratitude magnifies your positive emotions and beliefs.
This year, 2021, make a great choice!
Isn’t it so easy to hear the people around you, scoffing, doubting, worrying?
It is! Yet - do you choose to listen to them? Or do you make your own voice of trust the loudest?
Something I learned years ago from Dr. Wayne Dyer is that, whatever happened was “supposed to happen - proof being that it did.” I have pondered that from those years back, til now, and when things don’t go the way I hoped, those words come to my mind. Supposed to happen? What does that mean? Well, while you are pondering it as I do, see what you think. I do believe it means that the energies - thoughts, actions, beliefs - all energies - come together to “make it happen.”
And every time, it makes me remember I can sustain happy thoughts. Positivity. Surety. I can
...trust and believe that all things are working together for my good.
I can listen to the cynics and doubters.
I choose the energy of YES! with trust and belief in positive energy - positive thoughts, positive actions and positive beliefs.
Happy New Year!
Life is often tough. In our angst, sadness, discouragement and anger, we find ourselves feeling helpless - even hopeless.
if you think about the difficult, and the wonderful, think about which can make you stronger, moving you toward your destiny?
As Winston Churchill pointed out, you can see adversity in every opportunity, or you can see the opportunity in every adversity.
Even in failure or mistakes, look for the opportunity, especially when you don’t understand. When you accept in that moment that this adversity, just like every blunder, missed deal and broken heart will eventually play to your favor, you may just see the door that has been opened for you.
Or, it may take awhile, giving you an opportunity to practice endurance and growth.
It’s a set-up. Closed doors are often the Universe’s way of steering you in a much better direction. Look for the direction. This is your moment of power. Say, “I can do this!”
To your next open door,
Share love with everyone you meet, a smile, a hug, a word. Gladden their hearts.
Listen. Try to understand. Say thank you often, and say, “It’s my pleasure,” more.
Be gentle. Answer softly and with your heart. Be a treasure to your loved ones. Laugh a little more. Say lots of gratitude things to everyone as you go through your days.
Notice God’s beautiful Earth. Breathe in its wonder.
Speak your love.
Speak it again.
Speak it yet
May I start?
I love you. I truly love you,
Chris, and from Claude too.
Your power is in this moment. What you do in this moment defines your tomorrow, your future.
In this moment, sacrifice what you “are” (have been), for what you can become!
