To Forgive or Not To Forgive

I struggle with this thought even though I have been down this road before. I even wrote my thoughts about ‘forgiveness‘ earlier this year. I want to start the New Year with no baggage.  I want to be free from anything that might hold back my growth as an individual. Still I find myself asking: “Should I? Can I? Do I want to?” Continue reading

HAPPINESS – Quote

Happiness quote

“Happiness is not your friend, it never stays with you. Pain is your friend, it never leaves you. So accept the pain with the happiness, and be prepared when pain hits you more than when happiness does.” ~ J. M.

Conversation with My Heart

How many times will I keep going through this? How much more can my heart take? Why do I always end up in the same spot every time?

The “FORGIVENESS” Lesson

“Don’t forgive because it’s the right thing to do, forgive because it’s what you want to do”. Aly Johnson

“I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note – torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.” Henry ward Beecher

Fear

One of the most destructive emotions in our lives is the feeling of Fear. It is the most common one next to Love.  Both of those emotions even go hand in hand.

What is fear exactly? Why do we fear? Who experiences fear the most? What do we do to overcome the feeling of fear in our lives???

The feeling of fear itself is very versatile.  Every person feels fear differently and the reason or cause of fear varies as well. Generally speaking though, fear is an emotion that paralyzes our ability to think positively and find peace in our lives. When you fear something, you are unsure Continue reading

Risk

What is a risk? Why do we risk? And what kind of impact does risk have on our lives? Is there a safe way to take risks?

On a day-to-day basis, I say we each take some sort of risk in everything we do.  A risk is an unknown outcome to an event.  We take risks when we say or do something.  We even take risks when we don’t say or do something. Continue reading
