Today, I am going to take a jug of bleach and make the house brilliant with good cheer. I am going to give it a good old try! We are alive!

We just have to stop and choose to put on a happy face, to think of something more pleasant, to think of the ones in our home. Bet they can use a fellow housemate who has a positive outlook on life.

It did not start with the current, constant social media bantering. Discrediting other people has existed in our culture for as long as I have lived. Here are three insights as to why.
With no judgement, no decision, emotions send warnings of recommendations so you can achieve your personal goals. As you recognize emotions are your friends, your loyal servants, you become more familiar with their messages and you widen your options for heading to your personal destination. Amazing discovery!
But for now, I want check my environment and the perception of my circumstances, my well-being.
We can experience emotions of fear, irritation, anxiety. They feel like little shock waves. We may not be aware of the importance of these emotions and we may magnify the importance of the irritation, fear, anxiety.
When you learn to read emotional messages, you can bounce back from any negative situation. You might now realize it is you who are placing the negative label to any situation.

There is nothing quite so satisfying as the calm, peaceful connection to happiness.

How can you recognize your thought process caught in negative thinking? Here’s an idea! Imagine an amazing feast that magically passes through your brain, one that automatically and continuously serves up courses. An imaginary banquet of thoughts! Interaction with the banquet’s chef is most helpful. For a satisfactory meal you need to choose your courses. If you neglect […]
The more you choose your thoughts the more you can create the situation you desire. Most of us are not even aware of our thoughts. Many times fear is a hidden, underlying thought that rules the day. Fear can take on many faces: fear of being late, fear of not measuring up, fear or losing […]
I believe in love. I’ve known about it from the beginning. I learned some of love’s lessons from my dear Nana who would welcome me into her deep, wonderful lap and hug. This was my first understanding of heaven. I did not feel lost or alone. I was confident of my worthiness. My Nana […]

For me, the question has always been: Will we ever have peace in the world? We keep thinking that if we fight what we don’t like about another’s point of view we will achieve peace. Peaceful protesting certainly has its place in a democracy. We stand up and are counted only to become the ones […]
