Successful folks anticipate change. I'm talking...permanent change. They don't dread it, they don't fight it, they mentally anticipate it and dance with it. So then, change doesn't knock them off their saddle when it shows up.

So, let's you and I not waste a good pandemic. Let's make it count for something! Nothing in life ever happens TO you, though it may feel like it. Rather, things happen FOR you. So let's flip this thing into something of value.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE POWER OVER? You have power over your health, your happiness, your thinking, your choices, your peace of mind.  Give those your energy, time, attention and focus. They are yours. Own them. Do not neglect them.

Take charge of your demeanor. Reclaim your composure, your happiness, your peace. You can't change out there, but you can sure change in here. Learn the miracle of acceptance. It will serve you well. You’ll not allow any circumstance to squelch your vigor for life. Now that’s living life on purpose!

Your efforts to rescue or protect folks from their own pain, are often only robbing them of learning and growth.

  1. You and I, we've conditioned ourselves to wait. Wait for that big break. Wait for conditions to be just right. Wait for the signal or the sign. Wait for life to give us an engraved invitation. Wait for that round tuit. It's become clear to me that, you'll have it when you truly believe that you can have it.

  1. First, let's get rid of the that's-just-who-I-am excuse. That's not who you are. Instead, that's what you've become. Your potential is FAR more!
  2. Start asking the WHY-NOT questions. If you don't, nobody else will. And time will keep marching on.
  3. Gotta ditch that ego. Let uncomfortable circumstances challenge you to get better, not bitter.

Hey, this faith thing takes guts. It ain't for the lamb-petting faint-hearted. No siree, Bob! It takes guts to have faith. Because you have to give up your insistence on knowing or controlling or predicting! You cannot hang on to those joysticks of life and live peacefully in faith.

Have you noticed how throwing your opinions out there is simply your attempt to win? Is that really what you want in your relationship? To win? Remember, when you win, somebody else has to lose. And that, my friend, is not love.

I avoid pain like a cat with a cucumber. And if you don't know about the cat and the cucumber, look it up on Youtube.  But wait. Running from pain, in a way, is literally running from life itself. Because, life IS growth, don't you agree? I mean, if you're not growing, you're not living!

STRESS IS FIGHTING WHAT IS.

And even more outlandish, stress is resisting what hasn't even happened yet! It doesn't even exist and you're fighting it!

Think about it. I'm mentally resisting what is or what hasn't yet happened. But 100 out of 100 times, what is IS! And that's what it is...

Here's my suggestion: MOVE! Start heading up and down the aisle. If not, you'll come down with a bad case of paralysis of analysis from overthinking. Start moving! And what do you think will happen when you start moving? You'll see things you never saw back when you were cogitating. You'll see different perspectives and possibilities. You'll see more doors opening up. You'll meet folks, think thoughts, develop confidence, stumble upon ideas. You'll meet opportunities you would have never met while contemplating your belly button.

You gotta ride that pony called change. One of the biggest joy-killers is when you don't anticipate and expect change. It's gonna happen! God made the oceans in constant motion rather than a still lake. He gives us a different sky every single day and night since the beginning of time! So jump on that pony and ride that thing called change! Stop rooting your joy in people and things! They'll only rust out or die or leave and then they'll take your joy with them.

Flying a kite is a great metaphor for your decision-making. What keeps a kite flying is its grounding anchor-point. And what helps keep your sanity in decision-making is your choice to keep decisions grounded in what you value.

Being who and where you are right now is where your power and passion reside. So stop squandering them away by trying to be someone you're not. Live out who you are right now in FULL-COLOR BABY! This is life. Today. Not tomorrow. Not over there. Not being that.

The most venomous and love-strangling mindset you and I can take into any relationship, whether in parenting, friendships, marriage... is our need to be right. A preacher once told me, "You can either be right or you can be happy." Boink! Ouch!

Your disappointment in people and in events isn’t about them, it’s about you.

When I'm upset at what you said or did or didn't say or didn't do, my upset is solely about you not lining up with my expectations. Holy cow! This has been a breakthrough for me and how I process my world.
