EVERYBODY STUMBLES...

You know how, when you're walking along in public and you stumble over something small or trip over your own feet, you quickly look around to see if anyone was looking? Yeah, we've all been there...right? Well that's the same feeling you can get when you are working toward your personal goals and people catch you stumbling. You tend to look around and see who, in your circle of friends and family, was looking. It can deter you from moving forward...if you let it.

We all stumble...that is a huge part of life. If we were getting it right all the time, day in and day out, there would be no point...we would cease to exist. The trick is not to let it deter you from reaching your goals. We all have goals and/or dreams and fantasies...things we wish would happen in our lives and that is the journey we are on every single day...even in the little ways that we take for granted or barely notice. But you have to be true to yourself and let no one get in your way or stop you from finding those dreams and reaching those goals. There is no blame and no shame involved...it's human nature. People who judge you usually do so out of jealousy/envy...but remember other peoples' opinions of how you live your life need not ever factor into your living it the way you want. Stay true to you and be grateful around every turn for every wonderful, amazing thing that happens in your life. You will find that more you express gratitude, the more wonderful things you will have in your life...miracle after miracle...abundantly.

You are human and from time to time you need encouragement...a little cheering squad if you will. Even if you are a life-coach, a counselor, a therapist or psychologist/psychiatrist, you still need someone to talk to when things aren't going according to plan in your life...you are alive and you occasionally need a cheering squad. Talking your problems out with someone you trust is pure gold. Trusting someone enough to share your secrets and aspirations is priceless.

Don't worry about who is looking when you stumble because you will...and so will they. It just doesn't matter. All that matters is that you get back up, smile like you meant to stumble and move ahead with confidence and a positive attitude. I know that when I remember that my life is so much smoother.

3 STEPS TO INNER PEACE...

When I was in my late teens, already driving in fact, I discovered Al-anon. For those of you who are unfamiliar, it is a branch of the twelve-step program, i.e. Alcoholics Anonymous, et. al. A meeting for people in families or relationships in which their loved ones are abusing alcohol or drugs. It was in my first meeting that I learned the Serenity Prayer:

God, grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change, COURAGE to change the things I can and the WISDOM to know the difference. I came to know these as the three things that could bring me inner peace in a New-York-minute. 

There are times in my life when things are going so smoothly that I forget that, as someone born with chemical depression, I have to practice my coping skills every day to keep it at bay or I start to lose them, and lately I had gone through a patch like that. This past weekend however, I was again reminded of the serenity prayer, and everything good and positive snapped right back into place. Here is how it speaks to me when I keep it front of mind:

1.  If you accept things as they come and learn to let go of the illusion of control and ask yourself each time you feel that things are not going your way in a situation, "How can I make this beneficial for me?" you will achieve SERENITY. This takes a lot of practice and diligence, but when you master this it will become a habit that will change your life for the better.

2.  When you know that you have the power to change things in your life and/or in other peoples' lives toward the positive and you go for it and actually make those changes or strides thereto, you have found COURAGE. Courage tells you that fear/worry is silly and pointless and that you can be anyone and anything that you want to be and you can be the positive difference in your life and in the lives of others.

3.  WISDOM is obtained by knowing the difference between the things that are within your power to change or those that you have to accept and work into your life because you do not have the power to change them. This may just be the most important step because it is this judgment alone that will grant you total serenity and therefore inner peace. Make this decision first and the rest will fall into place.

Are these things easy to learn? For some yes, but for others, not so much, but when you ask God and/or the universe to grant you the serenity to accept the things you cannot change, courage to change the things you can and the wisdom to know the difference, you shall receive them...all three. The important thing is to ask, but equally important you must be grateful for them when they are granted...along with each and every wonderful and positive thing in your life as you receive them.

CAN YOU SPELL THAT PLEASE...

As someone who really loves to write and appreciates grammar, it amuses me so much when I see signs that either fail to get their point across or are just plain spelled wrong. I also love the pictures people post of their texts that went awry...stupid auto-correct...lol. I wanted to post these to bring a smile to your face as we can all relate to these.

Here's your sign (yes, I totally "borrowed" that line...lol):




These are the texts I found on Huffington Post.com:

I so hope these made you laugh as hard as I did. Too funny.
