Did you see her hair?!

Truth be told, there was a time in my past if I was looking at your hair and thinking it looked great that I was probably thinking mine looked crappy. Or, if I was thinking you were having a bad hair day, I was likely thinking that my ‘do looked awesome. Yes, I was a busy body busy judging…me. You see, what appears to be my judgment of you is actually my judgment of me. Here’s how that works. All thought is thought about ourselves (yes it is!). Everything we think and do is because we think it will make us feel…

This is Selfish

Today I live knowing the power of my thoughts. Today I live knowing the power of my thoughts to bring me peace. Today I live knowing my dreams have come true. Today I live knowing life doesn’t work the way I was taught. Today I live knowing I can do, be and have everything I desire.

Today I live knowing I can love her even if I despise what…

Off the Hook

My husband is an especially kind and considerate man. I feel cherished and loved every single day. He’s always in a good mood; he never says a word about what or how I spend money; he rescues me from whatever I’ve gotten myself into and doesn’t lecture me afterward; he tells me things he wouldn’t have to, even when he knows I won’t like what I hear, because he believes to withhold it is the same as a lie. He raised 5 kids in a 1,000 sq. ft. house with one bathroom. There is no end to his patience with…
