    She Loves Me

    Today is my birthday. I suppose I'll get a little bit of recognition for it but I really do like to keep things simple. Coming up, it was never a tradition in our family to celebrate birthdays with too much enthusiasm. Though I don't think the lack of fanfare was because of a...

    It Is What We Think About Our Experiences That Make Us Who We Are!

    The map is not the territory. We can think and feel any way we choose about an experience, that in it self is what shapes us. If you are unhappy with where you presently are in life start seeing it differently and changes begin to happen almost effortlessly. Don't allow people...

    All Of Our Life Experiences Form Us!

    Life

    I have made a lot of mistakes in my life. However, I would not take back any of them. These mistakes are what create our personality. They give us backbone, and wisdom. The older I get the more I realize that I am perfect the way I am. I do not need to please anyone or allow...

    How You Respond

    Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself.Walter...
