Radical Choice to Be Happy

The world will be what it will be today. We can either choose to own our own happiness, regardless of what comes. Or, we can leave our happiness up to the whims of events. The choice is always ours.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!

Every Moment…

We live in a universe of change. That can be painful at times for beings such as us.

However, it can also work to our immense advantage. Nothing is set in stone. Anything can be changed by the next gust of wind or the next shift in the sand.

Every moment literally has within it the power to completely rewrite your script, our script.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!

Division is a Decision

Division is a decision not an inevitability. It occurs when people are conditioned day after day to focus on what separates us rather than what unshakably unites us.

If you focused only on what you disagreed on with your significant other, you’d have no relationship.

If you focused only on what you disagreed on with your boss, you’d have no job.

Is it any wonder that when we focus only on what we disagree on, we cannot have a country that works?

You may be tempted to point the finger at “them.” After all, that’s what our media and our so-called leaders do. They tell you to point and to blame and to focus on the separation.

We can do better than that and WE MUST.

We came here to aspire to something higher than the next argument or even the next election. We have forgotten who we truly are and as long as we remain in that state of forgetting, we’re easily manipulated. The moment we remember nothing will be able to stop the transformation.

Until that day comes for the world, we will have to discover that remembering one person at a time. When enough of us have changed what’s inside, the outside will follow.

Be who you came here to be. See your greatness and help those around you to see theirs too.

We’re All Dealt a Hand

Good morning, my friends. I think it’s more than fair to say life isn’t always fair to us.

It’s easy to spends weeks, months, decades, your whole life recounting the ways life hasn’t given you a fair deal of the cards. You may even be 200 percent right. Life may not have offered you the same chances others had by default.

Here’s the thing. We have two choices. We can spend our lives focused on the hand we were dealt or we can focus our efforts on playing the hand we have with all we have. The shocking part is that as we do the latter, life eventually deals us a better hand.

We will always miss the rocket to greatness, if we’re hanging around the station waiting on the bus to fairness. That’s not to say that we shouldn’t be working for a fairer, more just society. It’s just an acknowledgement that you don’t have the time to wait for the world to move, when you can simply deal yourself a new hand.

In case no one else has reminded you today, YOU are AWESOME!
