LIFE CAN BE TOUGH, BUT…

Challenges come your way each day — most are small, but some can be larger than life itself. You handle the small challenges without much effort or thought. However, during the course of a hectic day, too many small challenges can wear you down to the point you become frustrated. This can make any large challenges that arise seem almost impossible to process — molehills appear as mountains.

When you reach such points during the day, there may not be any friends or family available to help you — sad situation, but often times very true. Such moments can test your resolve to continue moving forward — to go beyond your perceived limitations. This is when the “Quit Monster” shows up and starts using you as a punching bag.

LIFE CAN BE TOUGH, BUT…

You’re tired.

Your tank is empty.

You want to quit.

You pause briefly.

You breathe deeply.

You remember…

It’s not about you.

People depend on you.

You must keep going.

You reach deep inside…

Because you care.

You find the will.

You take the first step…

Then another—and another.

You keep pushing.

You ignore the pain.

You will not be denied.

You soon realize…

You’ve got this!

Even though your family and friends will not always be able to help you during many of your daily struggles, there is someone who can help — someone who is always watching over you. If you have faith and believe in Him, present your requests to God…

With His Help, You’ve Got This!

Have Faith, Believe and Be Blessed!

TRUTH CAN SET YOU FREE

It takes courage to ask questions when the answers may hurt deeply, but it is better to know the truth and move on than to live in a fantasy world fearing what may not even exist. The truth, good or bad, can set you free.

Seek the truth and be blessed,

SEIZE THE MOMENT

SeizeTheMoment3

We sometimes find ourselves looking in the same direction as those around us. We are like birds sitting on a wire just staring off into the distance and seeing nothing of value—no beauty, no opportunities—simply nothing. We go through life doing the same things over and over again. Each day is the same as the day before and the day before that. We are too busy plodding along in our deep-comfortable rut, unaware of the great big world around us; we lack the vision to see what could be.

Maybe we are too afraid to look beyond our mundane existence for fear of what we may find. The thought of trying something new, failing, or turning in a different direction from that of the crowd can be daunting. We are too comfortable with the status quo and do everything we can to resist change.

However, there comes A Time in Life when we tire of the same-old-same-old. We finally decide we’ve had enough and turn around to face in a different direction from that of the crowd—and wow! We suddenly realize there is a great-big-beautiful world right in front of us that has been going unnoticed. A world that is full of numerous opportunities waiting for us to explore.

Let today be the day you decide to turn around and face a new direction. Cast your fears aside and let your courage spark a burning desire within you to start doing things differently. All you have to do is be willing to try. What you envision; you can achieve!

Seize the moment—turn around and be blessed! The world is waiting to see the “new” you and what you can do!
