Changing our Paridigm and Perception

Everything we see with our senses is interpreted by our perceptions and thoughts. Accept that others' views are valid for them if not for you. Don't argue over who is right. You both are right!

Building A Strong Relationship

"Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take." — Anthony Robbins

Family First

I know why families were created with all their imperfections. They humanize you. They are made to make you forget yourself occasionally, so that the beautiful balance of life is not destroyed. -Anais NinI know why families were created with all their imperfections.

A New Day

Every morning is a fresh beginning. Every day is the world made new. Today is a new day. Today is my world made new. I have lived all my life up to this moment, to come to this day. This moment – this day – is as good as any moment in all eternity. I shall make of this day – each moment of this day – a heaven on earth. This is my day of opportunity. -Dan Custer

Choose Your Words Carefully

Words are powerful. They can be a soothing elixir of health and wellness and they can also be deadly weapons. Choosing the words we use, in any and every relationship, very well defines our quality of relationships. We can build confidence and show our support with our words; we can also deeply hurt and wound with them. Words are the language of our thinking mind, a vehicle of expressing the way we feel and the way we see life. Words give away our life perspective. We must be careful with the words we choose.
