I hope and pray that everyone is doing well and is safe. It’s been a trying couple of months, but I am so hopeful that there are better days ahead. I’ve been away from this site for a while working on a second book and also doing some painting. I have great news! My new book has been published and is now available on Amazon. I hope you will check it out. It costs a little bit more than most books, but I promise you, the beautiful color images and quotes are very inspiring. Peace, love, and joy always! ~dp

We won’t see eye to eye with everyone. I prefer to socialize with people who are open-minded, optimistic, and have the same values as I have. My goal in life is to be happy and at peace.
Although we experience difficulties in life, our center or core being provides us the power and strength to overcome them. The center of our being keeps us grounded and well balanced.
The more you engage in the blame game, the more you lose in life. Accusing someone else for a negative situation is a means of defending yourself and avoiding your own flaws and weaknesses. I know because I have done this in the past. I appreciate that those challenging experiences were actually meant for me so that I could learn and grow from them. We get caught up in wanting to be right all the time and are quick to point fingers at others. We need to take responsibility for ourselves or we could be in danger of losing friendships and possibly our jobs.
Sometimes our thoughts can be deceiving. When we pay attention to our thoughts at all times, we will know which ones to believe and which ones to ignore. Our thoughts create our future.
When you know in your heart that you’ve said something or done something to hurt someone unintentionally (or intentionally for that matter), you should apologize. Sometimes, we will even turn it around and place blame on the other person just so that we can justify our behavior. Don’t let your ego get in the way. Simply and sincerely say you’re sorry. Nine times out of ten, that’s all the other person really wants to hear.
