Life. How it works.

Life. How it works.

ShareI’d like to ask you a question. First though, stop whatever you’re doing, empty your thoughts, then visualize this scene in your head. Think of key moments in your past that impacted your life so profoundly you can’t imagine what your life would be like today, right now, without them. What happened? What was that “moment” you saw in your head just now? Was there someone else in that scene? Someone who was a part of that moment either directly

‘You Can Be Right, or You Can Be Married’: Lessons for Marriage, Learned from Divorce

Relationships

Share1) Disappointment comes from expectation 2) Most relationship problems come from expectations So, I decided to try an experiment. To have a relationship with NO EXPECTATIONS. It’s hard, but possible. It sounded impossible when I thought of it, but it is in fact possible. Hopes are ok. Wants are ok. But expectation is out. Expect nothing of no one, and you will never be disappointed. Remember, this is in RELATIONSHIPS. Different rules for other situations. Expectations from yourself are a

An Undying Passion

An Undying Passion

ShareThere’s a lot of life coaches “out there” offering you their services. Most of them I’m guessing have learned their craft through programs designed for coaches. Programs created specifically to “teach” them techniques they can utilize to help you. Of course, there’s no doubt many tap into their own life experiences as well. But in the end, at least from what I’ve seen, they’re students passing along what they’ve learned from a program that “certified” them as a “life coach.”

Feed the Right Emotion ~ John Maxwell

ShareFEED THE RIGHT EMOTION In life, both faith and fear will arise within you, and you will choose which one will prevail.

The thing is, both of those emotions will always be present in you. The emotion you continually feed is the one that will dominate your life. You can’t

Eckhart Tolle ~ New Earth

Share“As the new consciousness emerges, some people will feel called upon to form groups that reflect the enlightened consciousness. Dissolving the human ego by bringing it into the light of awareness–this will be one of the main purposes of these groups, whether they be enlightened businesses, charitable organizations, schools, or communities of people living together. Enlightened collectives can be a vortex for consciousness that will accelerate the planetary shift.”~ Eckhart Tolle “A New Earth is one of the most profound

You Can Too!

You Can Too!

Share“You can too!” The first 13 years of my life were fairly normal; a farm boy living in a small town doing the things farm boys do, working, playing, going to school, church, participating in sports. That ENDED shortly before my 14th birthday. As I looked down at my mother’s near lifeless body, which was force-ably ejected after a head-on collision with another vehicle, I knew right then the life I once loved was gone. I was the first one

Life Lessons to Remember

Life Lessons to Remember

ShareIn life we do things. Some we wish we had never done. Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads. But they all make us who we are, and in the end they shape every detail about us.

So just live, make mistakes, have wonderful memories, but never ever second guess who you are, where you have been, and most importantly
