Food is fuel

imageWatch what you put in your body. Food is fuel for life. If the food you’re eating makes you feel bad, reconsider your nutritional choices. Take the time to determine what foods don’t agree with you and search for a more beneficial alternative. You can’t do life well without health.


Music brings all people together.

It’s the day after Thanksgiving. Relax and enjoy your family, your friends, yourself. Take a look at this video of superstars jamming on class room instruments, having a blast and follow suit.

Find what makes you feel joyous and focus your attention right there. Practice living a little more carefree. I know life may not be a full time party, but why not lighten up anyway? Why not? Doing so just may cause the shift that you need to occur. Hello!


Giving thanks

So thankful for all of you – readers, tweeters, bloggers, family and friends. What an awesome year it has been! From my family to yours with tons of gratitude🍁🍂🌾

Powerful message

Tell your teenagers it’s okay to be who they are. Encourage their individuality. Help them find the outlet for it. And while you’re supporting them, parents or mentors, hit the refresh button on this message for yourself. I love it! It’s on the play list.

Ready for a relationship

Pain attracts Pain, discontent attracts discontent, peace attracts peace, contentment attracts contentment. We attract what we embody.

Are you interested in a relationship? Looking for a suitable partner? If so, please ask yourself what state am I in? Am I emotionally healthy enough to attract a healthy partner. Am I mature enough, grounded enough? Are my expectations for a partner realistic and achievable? Ask yourself the tough questions in preparation for your best relationship, then work on yourself in advance. This doesn’t mean you won’t have challenges in your relationships, but it will give you a measure of self-awareness that will be invaluable as you share your life with someone.

Make something happen

IMG_0851Hi Blog Community! I wanted to share an excerpt from my daily devotional with you. It will be out in paperback, just in time for Christmas. Enjoy, and like it if it resonates with you.

Make something happen

Want change? Pursue it. Go after something different and you’ll get something different. Literally, the gear shift for your life is in your mind. Change your thought pattern and you can change your outcome. Fill your mind with positives. Envision yourself healthy. See the success of your children. Build a healthy marriage in your mind. Occupy all the dark corners of doubt in your mind with something good. Choose to see the best in people. See your vocation thriving. Imagine that goal accomplished. Now then, what of your mind? You’ve created a healthy, fertile place to deposit good things. This soil will yield much increase for you.

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8 (ESV)

No thanks!

When I look back on poor decisions made in pain or emotional turmoil I say, “No thanks”.

From a point of clarity, “No thanks”.

My head is on straight now, so “No thanks “.

I may be alone, but “No thanks”.

From my true self, with courage and conviction. I say again to you, to this, or that – ” No thanks!”
