HI THERE

Do More Of What Makes You Happy

A few weeks ago there was a severe thunderstorm that resulted in a power outage in my area. It happened right after dinner, when my family and I would typically tune in to our evening TV shows for the night.

What some might have muttered was an inconvenience, I saw as a welcome break in our routine. We ended up all gathered around the living room picture window, watching the pine trees outside sway in the rainy wind—as if they were dancing—and sharing stories like we used to. The quietness of the house was peaceful. Simple. And I couldn’t help but smile when using candlelight and flashlights to venture through the halls.

“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.” –Vince Lombardi Jr. 

Don’t let difficulty stop you! There will almost always be unexpected challenges and twists and turns along the road, but those are what make the journey rewarding. So keep your head up, persevere and remember to take a look around once in a while and realize how far you’ve already come.

You’ve heard it countless times before, “Life isn’t easy,” and why should it be? Aren’t our challenges and hardships what cause us to grow and change? Tough experiences are necessary if we are to develop into stronger, more considerate and insightful beings. So remember this the next time you find yourself in a less-than-favorable situation. Not only will you make it through, but you will emerge as a better person.

“Confidence, like art, never comes from having all the answers; it comes from being open to all the questions.” –Earl Gray Stevens

Today is the day. The day to remind yourself what a beautiful, capable, intelligent, compassionate being you are. You can do whatever you set your mind to. You can accomplish more than you ever thought possible. You have the power to change lives, including your own. So feed that inner strength! Be brave! Remember, you’ve got this.

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

The famous words of Mahatma Gandhi remind us that in order to make a difference, we must first look inward and start with ourselves. Personal growth and development is a constant process that requires a keen conscious awareness. Never forget that you are a work in progress! Always be on the lookout for ways to better yourself.

Motivational Monday – Spread Kindness

Posted by Kelly Wallschlaeger

Relationships can be difficult. Whether they are with siblings, friends, parents, children, spouses or coworkers—all can be a bit much at times. As we deal with disagreements, misunderstandings, conflicting personalities and agendas, it can be easy to let anger, discouragement and apathy into our lives. I have heard many people express such feelings towards the very idea of people in general, letting past unpleasant experiences define everyone they will ever meet. This is the attitude that we must rid ourselves of. 

People are such complex, wonderful creatures. We must always remind ourselves of this, whether meeting someone new or interacting with someone on a daily basis. It’s time to let go of the hesitations, the bitterness, the assumptions. We are social creatures, and the relationships that we create and contribute to give our lives their deeper meaning. So be kind; be gentle; be positive. People will notice.

Motivational Monday – Embrace the Unknown

Posted by Kelly Wallschlaeger

Jun 16, 2014 10:00:00 AM

Oftentimes, it’s as if we think that the more we worry, the less likely we are to have misfortune in our lives. This, of course, is not accurate. Worrying and stressing about the unknown just results in misused time and energy, and can have a negative impact on health. Once we accept that there are certain things beyond our knowledge and control, we can find peace.

After all, the unknown doesn’t have to be frightening! Everything wonderful that awaits us in our futures has yet to be realized. Let this mystery fill you with curiosity and ambition rather than fear. Your mind will become clearer and more open to new possibilities. And your life will become richer with memorable experiences.
