My brother, Tom, has grown to be a large and positive influence in my life.  Hopefully, he wouldn’t mind me telling you, was born with the birth defect Spina Bifida.  Although it’s left him paralyzed from the waist down, it’s done nothing to dampen his spirit.  For 40-plus years now, I’ve watched in awe as he inspires others through this wit, his wisdom, and his ability to overcome all obstacles...

Last week, on March the 3d, I turned 46-years old.  It was on that day, I realized I’ve been missing out on my gifts, on myself, and on my life.  I suppose there’s no time limit for grieving. No. When you lose someone this close to you, it rocks your world, pulls you up from the roots, and forces you to face life on its terms.  There’s no turning back; things are forever changed.

Water should be a large part of your everyday health ritual.  Aim everyday to give your body lots of fresh, filtered water.

One of the keys to Hope is finding something within our control and working on that.  It doesn’t need to be a big thing, yet we all can find something within our grasp that we can change for the better. If you feel like you’ve lost Hope, hang on… look for what you can control and help it expand.

It’s easy to blame ourselves and others. Try to resist this.  Instead trust that the Divine knows our hearts and is working to bring our desires forward.

Pay it forward. Today so do something kind for another. There is great power in random acts of goodness; they inspire others as well as to make our day special, too.

My love of people and need to understand the human condition has gotten me into trouble – big trouble.  You see dear friends; there are wolves out there in sheep’s clothing and plenty of them.  And after you say “yes” to everything you think you can, sometimes you realize there’s not much left over and you’re giving away the store.
Yet, does kindness really need to be a curse?  I, for one, refuse to think so.

It is easy to focus on what’s missing in our lives; the hurts, the disappointments. Today, try instead to focus on God’s favor. Focus on your talents, your gifts and all the blessings bestowed upon you. For all of these, be grateful.

Today I will honor myself. I will give myself praise for all my accomplishments. I will let go of negativity by trusting in my own power. Today, I will remind myself that I am perfect exactly as I am.

Today, I will shake off fears and move forward. I am only limited by my own imagination. Anything I can conceptualize, I can achieve. I will take a footstep forward toward my dreams, today.

Every day is a new chance to begin again.  Every day is a gift to you from the Divine. How will you choose to use your gift today? Better: What have you been waiting to do for yourself that cannot wait one day longer. Begin today.

It’s the small things that matter the most; the details. It’s okay to look out and see the big picture, but it’s the steps you take inside of each day that are the building blocks to greater things.
