Renew Your Mind

Standard

Are you mentally abusing yourself? The most important thing you can do in life is recondition your mind.  Our thoughts being so close to us and the impact and constant pressure from the outside world make it very difficult to alter the process. However, it has to be done in order to live a more peaceful lifestyle.  Being aware of your thoughts and entertaining only the positive ones are important parts of the process. When you practice mental discipline and learn to stand back and observe your thoughts, you are making progress in creating a more meaningful life.

Practice What We Preach

Standard

Of course, it is easy to dictate what is right and what is wrong; what to do and what not to do; but we must be mindful of our own thoughts and actions. It is a wonderful experience to help other people, but I also believe we have to be cognizant of applying our teachings in our own daily lives. After so many years of habitual thinking, I still catch myself reverting back to the same negative thought patterns. Since I am aware of this now, I am able to quickly dismiss them or change them into positive thoughts. I am a disciplined person, and I am improving my life every day. I am coming to expect this of you…

Shift Your Perception

Standard

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”  (Romans 12:1–2).

When we are not our best selves, we can view people, things, and situations in a negative way.  If we want to transform our lives, we have to renew our minds.  When we change our way of thinking, we can discern what is true and righteous.

Awakening

Standard

I am writing this in honor of Groundhog Day. Waking up can be a very slow process. It’s kind of like when the groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, emerges from his hole, he sees his shadow and scurries right back in. It is then predicted that there will be six more weeks of winter-like weather. We know what is good for us, but change can be a little frightening. The good news is we are taking that first step toward change. At least we are coming out of our dark holes.  According to today’s news, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, therefore, an early spring is in the forecast!  When we keep moving forward and stepping out in faith, doors will open to new opportunities to use our gifts and develop relationships.

Calling All Parents

Standard
Calling All Parents

Parents beware: your children watch every move you make inside the home and outside the home.  Right now, they are absorbing everything there is to know about life.  Please be good role models for them, because they are depending on you to teach them all that you know.  This is good, because you can actually mold them into becoming great adults. Your children are going to grow up being like you.  So, are you happy and content?  Do you like yourself?  Are you a calm and patient person or are you uptight and anxious?  Do you have manners, and are you polite and respectful toward others?  How do you react to negative situations?  Do you eat healthy food, and are you active?  Maybe you need to change in some areas so that you can be the best role models you can be for your children.  This is the perfect time to do so while they are still young and wanting to learn.  Do it for you and them, because they need your guidance.  Be very grateful for your children.  They are blessings from God!

Path to Power

Standard

Your whole life revolves around what is going on inside of you.  What you are thinking, what you are believing, what you are feeling, what you are intending, what or who you are connecting with spiritually, and what you are physically putting into your body.  Your inner world is attracting your outer world.  The path to power begins with awareness.  Only when you become ‘aware’ of what needs to be changed within yourself can you make changes in your life. As always, positive changes bring positive results.

Quit Your Whining

Standard

Complaining will get you nowhere, but action will get you everywhere ~ dp.  When you keep complaining about what is not working in your life, you will continue to attract more problems. Quit focusing on the problem, and figure out what you can do to change the situation. Start taking the necessary steps to resolve the issue, and everything will flow accordingly.  Take action and believe that things will work out. You will see how quickly your life will turn around!
