A Word Fitly Spoken ~ Believe
A Word Fitly Spoken
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.Proverbs 25:11
Under All that We Think, Lives All We Believe, Like the Ultimate Veil of Our Spirits. ~ Antonio Machado
Believe: To exercise belief in, to regard or accept as true; to place confidence in; to think; to consider; to be persuaded of a truth ~ Webster's Unabridged Dictionary
Such a small common word packs a plethora of meaning from the non conventional to the conventional. Usually deferred to a Religious segment of our Life, but with introspection let's look at where this word actually fits into our own Individuality in Life.
Consider everything in Your Life at this very moment IS in Your Life because of what You Believe. Now that makes it very personal and very simple. Some people have to see before they Believe, while others have to Believe before they see. Believing still wins out either way, for it forms our Life and molds our very Existence. What You Believe Today can change Tomorrow, and can change Your Tomorrows. Each Day we are evolving in what we Believe. Each Day we are adding to our Life in what we Believe, or not Believe.
Take a moment and reflect upon Your Life and what You Believe or do not Believe. Try to see how it permeates Your Life or has influenced Your Individuality. Question its pertinence and value. Validate what You Believe to what is actually happening in Your Life. Try to verify Your Thoughts and Words since they are the Vehicles of what You Believe. Take a conscious Responsibility to Believe with Accountability.
Look upon this Road less traveled, because to Believe is not only an never ending Path, but Your God given right as an Individual. Allow what You Believe to mark Your Path with Direction and Definition. Never be afraid to change. Believe Today and see Your Tomorrow. Believe Today because it is Your Tomorrow.
Walking on a Path of Life
We set out walking along a route where one foot walks on a sidewalk that is slowly accenting to higher levels, whilst the other foot walks on the road. We will get to a point where we have to make a choice. Do we raise ourselves up onto the side walk and continue to ascend, or do we keep both feet on the road, on the lower level?
The Seasons of Life, Part 2 of 5
Last week we started a five part series on The Seasons of Life. At that time I stated that I believe there are overriding principles that we should follow and be led by. That life is about constant, predictable patterns of change. And that as we approach the future; for all of us, the only constant factor will be our feelings and attitudes toward life.
Your World Your Way - Trusting Yourself In Business
"It doesn't interest me who you are, or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back."

Victory is an Accomplishment
Did you ever watch a bird in flight? Especially ducks or geese as they take off from the water? The take off is not the soaring grace of flight; it is a struggle, an accomplishment to get the bird out of the water and into the air. The REAL victory of flight is not the feat of soaring on air currents to a final destination, once in flight the bird has relative ease from his struggles. The real victory is in getting past the struggles of starting, just getting out of the muck.
Supercharge Your Dreams!
We all accept the fact that the lighter the backpack, the easier and quicker the climb to the top of the mountain. We all understand that the lighter the load on an airplane, the higher and faster it can fly. We pay extra for high octane fuel so our car will operate more efficiently. Then why don't we apply the same wisdom to our bodies and our dreams?
You know kids, one of the things I've learned by letting more people know what's going on inside my head is that once you do people expect you to live up to what you've put out there. I've sort of learned on the fly here that using this knowledge as a burr under the saddle that is my life accelerates my growth. Where I used to piddle (piddle's a FUN word to say...) around on things that I was working on internally and hadn't publicly disclosed, it's become clear to me that if I make it wide spread knowledge that ‚??this is an area I'm working on getting better in‚??, you guys and girls let me know when I've missed the mark.
Super Mom, Wonder Woman, Energizer Mommy or Just Mom
Have you ever sat down to watch the evening news and flashes a News Report about a woman that died with 100 cats, house full of trash and stacks of newspapers to fill 100 dump trucks? In my single days, I use to live by a lady like this. The entire neighborhood would talk about her but none of us ever went over there to see if she needed anything or if I could help her clean her house. We just talked about how could she let her house go that way.

Important Things to Know / Remember About Life
Don?t Give Up!
Don't let anyone kid you. The road to self improvement and personal growth is not a short, straight, well-marked, paved highway. Looking back on my journey, I see a road meandering over hills and through valleys, around sharp curves and over muddy trails, with occasional boulders blocking my way. I can remember taking detours that took me off the beaten path and on to cow paths that wandered seemingly forever through the puckerbrush. It's been a long interesting journey.
Reclaiming Our Resilient Spirit
Our spirits are taking a beating. The daily barrage of bad news, violence, shrinking resources, global warming, and economic slowdown can put us in a state of frustration and paralysis. Some days, getting out of bed can be a challenge.
The Power of Gratitude
When my older son was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, my first reaction was relief ? I finally knew the reason for his behavior. However, I was also overwhelmed with sadness, fear and anger. I felt sorry for my son and for myself. Like many others in similar circumstances, my question to God was "Why me?"
