Just A Minute…

Yup, just wait a minute…or an hour, heck or even a day, when you’re having one of those “days” when everything seems to come crashing down on you.

You know what I’m talking about, we’ve all had them, it’s like a cascade of events that just want to make you pull your hair out and scream.

You can do that if you want, but pulling your hair hurts and screaming, well, it just gives you a sore throat.

Find a quiet spot either in the physical world (or in your mind) and stay there for awhile. it is in the quietness that solutions and peace are found.

Take A Good Look…

Take a good look…at yourself. Look at all those wonderful qualities you have. There is no one in the world quite like you.

So many times, we put ourselves down. We play up the things that we might not be so good at and downplay all those things that we really do well. Somehow those things just aren’t that important; anybody can do those anyway.

But that is not true. You may have a way with words, while another does not. You might be good t math, while another (and I’m one of them) needs a calculator for everything. You might have an artistic flare while another can draw only stick figures.

Focus on what you do well and celebrate it!

Anytime can be the time… the time for a fresh start.

It doesn’t have to be a new day or a new week or a new year. Your fresh start can begin right now, right where you stand.

All you need to do is say to yourself that you are beginning again- that you are letting the past stay in the past where it belongs, and that you will and are perfectly capable of doing what it takes to successfully move forward.

And you can do that right now.

Which Way Will You Go…

Do you recognize your strengths? Or do you focus on your weaknesses?

Now, you’re probably wondering why I chose this picture to go with today’s blog. Well, I’ll tell you. This is a picture of (left to right) my cousins Billy, Johnny and Gary, and yes that’s me in the hat (why the heck I had a pocketbook I have no clue…I didn’t have any make-up (didn’t need any then) or credit cards.

But next to me is my cousin Gary. He’s a wiz at math. Me? I need a calculator to add two + two.

But for years, when I was growing up, Gary would come over to tutor me in various forms of math. It progressed, you know, to geometry and algebra and calculus.

But it didn’t matter how much Gary tried, or how patient he was…I just didn’t get it.

Math was NOT my strength, but I completed my English Regents Exam in thirty minutes and got 100% (they give you three hours to complete it)

So, in my long winded way, I’m trying to make a point…you KNOW what you’re good at. You KNOW what comes easy to you and what makes you happy doing it.

FOLLOW that way…for it is your way; it’s the way you’re supposed to go.

Leave It Behind…

Leave it behind…that junk from the past you’ve been carrying around. Maybe it came from a cross word said by someone no longer with us. Maybe it came from something someone did to you in ignorance. But where ever it came from ask yourself if its serving you well now or just making you feel bad. If its not doing you any favors then its time to leave it behind:)

It’s A New Day…

Do you know what you’re good at and what comes natural for you? Spend a little time thinking about this.

William Matthews tells us “One well cultivated talent, deepened and enlarged is worth one hundred shallow faculties”

When we’re doing things we’re good at we seem to be in a natural flow and that enables us to get better and better at it, helping others as well as ourselves.

So why force something that may not be a good fit for you? Go with what feels right.

Watch Them…

Watch your words. Watch what you say. Your words have the ability to encourage and soothe. They have the ability to bring a smile to someone’s face and to encourage them to take those first steps. They have the ability to send a heart soaring.

But they also have the ability to destroy hope. They have the ability to ruin a day. They have the ability to instill fear where there was none before.

Watch your words. Make them kind and uplifting. If you must criticize, then do it constructively. Don’t blindly shoot out cruel things. Once those words are out you can’t take them back. Words are powerful. Use them for good.
