Dreams Are Not Embarrassing

Your dreams are the best part of you, for they reveal the deeper thoughts that lie within.  It is always the deeper part of a person that is best to get to know.

And always, always remember this:

Your dreams are not embarrassing. 

They are your dreams and they are worthy of being expressed and exposed.

Decide

Who decides for us?  Who makes the decisions in your life?  Who controls your habits, your drug of choice, your drinking schedule, and exercise routine?  Who controls your fork and knife, and how often you lace up your tennis shoes?  Who takes you to the exercise place or the park nearby?

I surely hope the answer is “I do.”

Decisions are an INSIDE JOB!  This picture seems to resonant with a lot of people. 

When we get sick and tired of a certain lifestyle, or feeling, or habits, if we change at all, it is most likely going to come from within. 

What one thing in your life that is within your power can you change? 

Next question – do you dare?

Only you can make that choice. 

I hope you do.

Big Idea

J K Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, once said, “I had an infant daughter, a typewriter and a big idea.”  

And we all stand in amazement at what that big idea turned into. 

What is your big idea?  Are you taking it out for a breath of fresh air on occasion?  Meaning, do you think about it, write about it, work on it, dream about it?

Big ideas need the breath of belief and then the push of desire and involvement. 

Big ideas need our labor so that they can in turn become BIG. 

I hope your Big Idea grows so big you can’t help but let it out some day.

5 Important Words

I work with words.  Words have life.  Words give life.  One of the best ways ever to validate someone is to speak words of hope and encouragement into their soul.

These five words are magical.  They speak of recognition, endorsement, trust and good faith.



Try them out on the next family member you meet. 
Use them at work tomorrow.
Tell your mate after the next great meal he/she prepares for you.

We all love recognition.

Family

I’m one of ten kids.  We are family. 

For most of my adult life I’ve lived far from my blood family, yet I’ve had family around me wherever I’ve lived. 

How?

My philosophy on family is found in this …


Even when I’ve been without blood family, I’ve managed to develop friendships that become like family.  I have a great host of brothers from another mother.  Sam, Rick, Frank, Bob, Stan, Morris are just a few of my friends whom I consider like kin.
