Why Life ISN’T Unfair

Life isn’t unfair… it is always fair! Now, I can imagine the tremendous leap of faith that embracing this premise might require. We’ve all posed the question: “Why me? Why do bad things happen to good people? How can a good God allow such injustices to occur?” None of us is immune to seemingly negative occurrences, but life’s events become calamities only if we make the conscious decision to make tragedies out of them. The storms in one’s life, while they have the potential of creating incapacitating turbulence in the mind, do not have to. We might just as easily… Read more.

It is what it is – if you have strong faith that your life has a purpose than just be.

Trusting Your Magnificence

You are a magnificent being. Has anyone told you that lately? Well I’m telling you, you are. How do I know? Let’s just say I’ve had experience in that area. You may not feel like you are a magnificent being, but it’s true. Your personality is the outside of you and the magnificent being is the inside of you. All of the components to your personality, the enjoyable ones as well as the not-so enjoyable ones, are those you chose to experience this lifetime. They are what make you unique. A fool discounts them; a wise person works with them,… Read more.

Participating in Your Own Rescue

When people ask what I’ve learned from the experiences in my life I have to smile. What always comes to my mind is faith, accountability, courage, forgiveness and compassion.

The Courage To Follow Your Heart

During my 61 years on this earth, I have learned that living life successfully requires great courage and risk. While I think I always knew this simple truth, I didn’t find the courage to follow my dreams until I was 48. And I have never looked back! My life today reflects the dreams that I had 50 years ago, when I was 11 years old. I wouldn’t have the life I have today had I not taken the risk–learning from the turtle that you only make progress when you stick your neck out. We are continually faced with great opportunities… Read more.

Today is the first full day of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, celebrated in the Jewish religion. Many of you may be asking, “What is Hanukkah?” According to Wikipedia, Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the re-dedication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE.

Leap Into Your Life!

At every age and every stage of life, we find ourselves in times of great glory or in utter despair.

It is up to us to determine just how we will experience every setback, every win, every frustration and every adversity. Even in the darkest of times, you… Read more.

Fuel Your Gratitude With Faith

Exactly how does that Bible verse go? Is it “in everything give thanks…” or is it “for everything give thanks…”? I have to be honest and tell you that I don’t always feel thankful. On nights that homework with my daughter turns into a 3+ hour ordeal, I don’t feel thankful. When I was told that my daughter had autism, I didn’t feel very thankful. When strangers in stores and restaurants gave us angry stares because my daughter was too loud or too busy for their taste, I felt defensive and angry, but not thankful. God expects us to cycle… Read more.
