To Blame Is Easy

To blame is easy. To solve the problem and do it while being critical of no-one is a challenge to each of us, and impossibly hard for many who refuse to grow.

If You Want To Make A Great Impression

Don't be worried about what others think of you for most people aren't focused on you, they are focused on themselves and their needs. If you want to make a great impression, take an interest in them and offer kind words of reassurance and a helping hand.

Relapse Is Often Part Of Recovery

For many addicts, relapse is part of recovery. Addictions can be extremely hard to overcome and if you have an addiction, don't lose hope if you've stumbled on your path to recovery. There is no shame or guilt in failing, for failure is a stepping stone to success for those who are determined to succeed and persevere through the challenges in any endeavor, including addiction.

"It's Just Another Day"

"It's just another day," a bored man said to me. There's no such thing as "just another day," I replied, pointing out the beauty around us, and speaking of his good health, at a time when some people are suffering from cancer and wish for good health.

As he looked around at nature's beauty and thought about what was said,  he smiled and said, "you're starting to make me feel better."

Just remember, there's no such thing as "just another day." Each day is a profound gift to us and its up to us to make the most of it, which starts with how we think about that day.

Refugees

At one time, we or our families were refugees, and we were eventually accepted by others in where we settled. As in the past, today wars and poverty are causing many people to seek resettlement elsewhere. We can respond in fear and reject them, or we can follow our consciences and welcome them as we too would hope to be welcomed.

Learning What Realy Matters

Everyone can agree that life is short, but the issue is not about time. It is about how to use the time we have to do what really matters to each of us to attain our purpose in being here.
