Are You Growing through Challenges?

Every once in awhile I catch myself saying, “Boy oh boy, life is just one thing after another!”  Then I laugh at myself because that’s what life is … one thing after another.  The question is how do I respond to those things that happen, one after another?  What’s my attitude?  How do I perceive the challenges I’m facing?  These are important questions for all of us, because the experience of life is all in the way we look at it.  Life is filled with obstacles, hurdles and challenges, but it isn’t all about avoiding them.  It’s about evolving emotionally and spiritually so that we grow through our challenges, rather than just go through them. You might have heard the…

Beginning Again With Joy

I have addressed the topic Beginning Again With Joy as the subject of a past speaking engagement, but I feel compelled to write about it because I can see that joy is missing in so many lives. It’s certainly obvious how much joy is missing in our world. Part of the problem is, people have become preoccupied with pursuing happiness. And happiness is not the same as joy. We tend to equate happiness with joy, but they’re two entirely different ideas because they spring from two different sources.

Treat Yourself To Love!

Most of us spend years falling in and out of love before we even realize that there’s another dimension to love which we didn’t know existed.

The Feeling of Freedom

This month our country celebrates freedom. The great and wise patriot, Erma Bombeck, once said, “You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4th, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.” From the broad perspective of society, the word freedom brings to mind civil liberties, human rights, the freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of the press, religious freedom, and so on. But freedom is more than this. When we narrow the…
