Live Our Lives

The sounds of birds chirping announces the rising of the sun and the coming of a new day. Each morning is a time for a fresh start and a new and wonderful beginning. We should never forget the sacrifices others have made for us and to honor them we should live our lives to the fullest.


Commitment makes even the most difficult task seem easy. Sometimes we find ourselves having to do something in which we are not so interested, because it is part of our job. When we are forced to do something we don't like we find it very difficult to do the task. As soon as we get a thought as to why we should be doing it, it becomes very difficult. We need to bring sincerity in whatever we are doing. With sincerity comes commitment and with that comes confidence in our thoughts, words and actions. With this confidence we will be able to do the most difficult task with ease.

Do not seek to know the truth. Only cease to cherish your opinions.

Zen Wisdom


Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates
extraordinary results.

Love Because

We are told that people stay in love because of chemistry, or because they remain intrigued with each other, because of many kindnesses, because of luck. But part of it has got to be forgiveness and gratefulness.


There's only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.

Inner Tranquility

The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.

Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama

The Word Grace

Grace means more than gifts. In grace something is transcended, once and for all overcome. Grace happens in spite of something; it happens in spite of separateness and alienation. Grace means that life is once again united with life, self is reconciled with self. Grace means accepting the abandoned one. Grace transforms fate into a meaningful vocation. It transforms guilt to trust and courage. The word grace has something triumphant in it.

Build You Up

Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.

Every Decision

Every decision you make - every decision - is not a decision about what to do. It's a decision about Who You Are. When you see this, when you understand it, everything changes. You begin to see life in a new way. All events, occurrences, and situations turn into opportunities to do what you came here to do.

Neale Donald Walsch


True forgiveness is when you can say, "Thank you for giving me that experience"

Believe Your Friends

Don't believe your friends when they ask you to be honest with them. All they really want is to be maintained in the good opinion they have of themselves.

Everything Looks New and Different

When traveling the path of life, and finding love along the way, Everything looks new and different. Little do you know it is the same old landscape you used to see all of the time; Love has just given you new eyes.

To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.

No Happiness

Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.

Life Is Hard

When I hear somebody sigh, "Life is hard," I am always tempted to ask, "Compared to what?"

Sydney J. Harris


The word “crisis” is from the Greek, meaning “a moment to decide.” The recurrent moments of crisis and decision when understood, are growth junctures, points of initiation which mark a release from one state of being and a growth into the next.

Happiness is Passion

I truly believe that happiness and passion walk hand in hand. Both require each other. So following what makes you truly happy is a wonderful way to figuring out what you were put on Earth for. Think about something that you do or that perhaps you used to do that brings total peace to you when you do it. Peace is happiness, and happiness is passion.


Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim; accept no ones definition of your life; define yourself.

Harvey Fierstein

A Beautiful Smile

Love is a beautiful smile to which nothing compares: A tender laugh, which opens your heart, A single touch that melts away your fears, A smell that reminds you of the tenderness of heaven, A voice that reminds you of the innocence of youth.

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.


"Now" is the operative word. Everything you put in your way is just a method of putting off the hour when you could actually be doing your dream.

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.

Bob Moawad


Can miles truly separate you from friends... If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there?


Don’t put off living to next week, next month, next year or next decade. The only time you’re ever living is in this moment.

What Makes Us Different

We all have problems. The way we solve them is what makes us different.


Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.

Isak Dinesen


A lot of people think of energy as a spiritual term, like the divine energy of Christ, Buddha, or Krishna. It isn’t necessarily an otherworldly concept. It’s something we create in our day-to-day activities. If you learn to fully appreciate this moment, you will see you have profound power to manifest positive feelings within——to create divinely inspired energy, if you will, that impacts everything and everyone around you. In this way, we play a much larger part in the bigger picture than we realize.

How do you create and utilize positive energy?

Recognize Each Other

It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is.

Create the Future

Think outside your box. Don’t imagine the future from the box of what you have now. Just because your mind is in box of previous experiences doesn’t mean that Ás the limits of the world. Your possibilities are much larger. Create the future from the now and from nothing rather than your past to experience bigger changes with fewer limitations than you would if you created it from what you can see from your box.

Who You Are

Be Yourself. There will be challenges to face and changes to make in your life, and it is up to you to accept them. Constantly keep yourself headed in the right direction for you. It may not be easy at times, but in those times of struggle you will find a stronger sense of who you are.

The Best Life Ever

Be thankful for what life brings, hoping it is what you rightfully deserve. The challenge may not actually be in being successful, getting what you want, achieving what you desire, and being the so-called best. The real challenge is being content/grateful with who you are, what you have, and where you are; and in the meantime, appreciating life and treating it as the best life ever, even if it may seem otherwise.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.



While we are focusing on fear, worry, or hate, it is not possible for us to be experiencing happiness, enthusiasm or love.

A Good Example

Sometimes, you don't have to use words to get others inspired. The power of a good example is enough.

Nasa - The Frontier is Everywhere

Preserve the Heart

Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations, given habitually, are what win and preserve the heart, and secure comfort.

- Sir H. Davy

Best Ways to Change

One of the best ways to change the way you feel is to change your environment. When you get in a slump, you start to associate your problems with everything around you. It can get to the point where your environment is a constant reminder of your problems. This can be a dangerous cycle. The solution is to change things. Change doesn’t have to be radical. Cleaning up, adding more lights, or including pleasant decorations can completely change the mood of a room.

A Successful Day

If I am at peace with myself. It has been a successful day.

Giving Unconditional Love

The practice of giving unconditional love requires by its very nature that you don’t expect anything directly in return for giving it to others. By providing unconditional love to others, you are expressing your faith that good things will be drawn into your life through the Law of Attraction

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

You are free to do whatever you like. You need only face the consequences.

Congratulate Yourself

Congratulate yourself repeatedly for every positive private thought you have about yourself and watch your energy increase. When negative talk begins again, don't cave in to a re-run of old tapes. Replace them with these new and positive tapes of inner love for yourself.

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Role Model

Everyone needs at least one excellent role model. A guide is a person that one can look up to, usually seen as a trusted counselor or guide. All the successful people I have ever known have had a guide at some point in their life, someone who educated them and encouraged them to take risks with new experiences.

See the Miracle

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

Personal Touch

Put a small personal touch on everything you do. –– Think of it as branding your work. If you’re funny, add a little humor into it. If you’re an artist, decorate it with illustrations. Whatever you do, customize it with a little personal touch of ‘you.’

Forge Your Own Path

Never forget the definition of insanity: Doing the same thing every day of every month of every year, and expecting different results. If you want to truly live, and not merely exist, you have to leave the comfort of your nest. You have to forge your own path through the uncharted waters around you - for it is these uncharted waters that will eventually lead you to the shores of your goals.

To Do It

For relationships to grow and last both members have to be equal with the love they give; and both should do it, not because they think they have to do it, but because they want to do it.

Jealousy and Anger

Jealousy and anger are emotional reactions to believing scenarios in your mind that are not true. By changing what you believe you change what your imagination is projecting and you can eliminate these destructive emotional reactions. Even when there is justification for the reaction, jealousy and anger are not beneficial ways to deal with the situation and get what we want.

Worth Emulating

Be a good example. People watch what you do more than they listen to what you say. Be someone worth emulating.

Touch Someone

Share from your own experience. You have more to share than you realize. Mine the rich experiences of your life and share your wisdom from your unique point of view. You may be the only one who can touch someone with your inspiring message.

Light My Way

The ideas that have lighted my way have been kindness, beauty and truth.

Men Admire

It has always seemed strange to me... the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.

John Steinbeck

Do Color Life

Circumstances and situations do color life but you have been given the mind to choose what the color shall be.

What If

We spend too much time living in the ‘‘what if’’ and need to learn to live in the ‘‘what is.’’

Wednesday, January 5, 2011


Learn to accept the bad, as it is part of life, but don’t let it become part of your being. It is a moment in time, something to be learnt from and released. Exhale darkness, inhale brightness and you will live in a happier place, ready to blossom.

Mind Power

Mind power is what turns affirmations from words to a new reality. Scientists in the 20th century had a revolution of thought in regards to the mind and the brain. It had been a long held belief that the brain we developed as a child was the brain we were stuck with, and not only that, but the neural connection and chemicals we ended up with doom us to our thoughts, our level of consciousness, our habits, our behaviors and our reality. Free will was largely ignored. Fortunately, a new breed of science emerged and showed us that the mind has power to change our physical reality.

Golden-Voiced Homeless Man Captivates Internet

This clip speaks for itself -- literally. The Columbus Dispatch discovered a homeless man along Ohio's I-71 claiming to have "the God-given gift of voice." His name is Ted Williams, and he's an ex-radio announcer according to the note he scrawled on a piece of cardboard that he uses to solicit change from drivers. And wow, does Williams ever deliver for a dollar. Williams tells the Dispatch about his struggles, but thankfully "alcohol and drugs and a few other things" haven't diminished Williams' velvety vocal cords, and he says he's two years clean now..

"I have a god given gift of voice. I'm an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times. Please! Any help will be greatfully appreciated. Thank you and God bless. Happy holidays," says Williams' roadside sign for help..

Like Williams, the radio industry has fallen on hard times in the past decade, but given the viral power of this video, we expect more than a few morning show and late-night appearances, and perhaps even a job, will be in Williams' near future. In fact, Reddit reports that Ted has already been tracked down by Columbus area radio show The Morning Zoo and will appear on tomorrow morning's show, so tune in!

You Are the Best

Respect yourself for your uniqueness and understand that everyone is on their own life journey. You are who you are; you are the best at being yourself, and you are a unique person, full of possibilities! Accept and respect yourself, flaws and all, and you will find that life becomes much less of a burden.

Who We Are

The values of the world we inhabit and the people we surround ourselves with have a profound effect on who we are.

You won't be happy with more until you're happy with what you've got.

The Ability to Imagine

Be thankful that you had the ability to imagine, to hope and to feel it in the first place. Reach back and find - it's still in there - the joy it brought you. Dust it off, roll it around in your mind a while, let it out, and visualize what could be, if you only take the chance.

Your Wealth

The real measure of your wealth is how much you’d be worth if you lost all your money.

Bernard Meltzer


Other people can’t cause us to be impatient unless we let them do so. In other words, others don’t make us impatient. We make ourselves impatient, through our expectations and demands, fixated attachments and stuckness.

Lama Surya Das


You can gain inspiration and you can become inspired to take action toward your dreams by taking the time to visualize them. We are more likely to believe in and to move forward toward or dreams, if we can actually see them as possible and visualization can do that for us.

Ying and Yang

Becoming and being are the yin and yang of our lives. One inner one outer. Today, we value becoming to the exclusion of being; we applaud human becomings. The secret is balance.

New Year

For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.

T. S. Eliot
