You are who you are. If you expect to be told what and how without taking the time to understand the why, then be prepared to be deceived. You can't solve a problem by expecting others to change. The way you think, the way you act, and the way you feel makes a difference in your life.

The way you think, the way you act, and the way you feel makes a difference in your life.

Good Morning Everybody .....

come on in, get yourself some coffee and make yourself comfortable.

I'm starting to feel a bit normal these days. It's getting too cold for me and having lived in Caribbean for nearly 13 years I forgot how I actually managed to survive this weather. But hey! If I could do it before there's no reason why I can't survive now, right?

Pain makes a person think. Thought makes a person wise. Wisdom makes life endurable.

The way you think, the way you act, and the way you feel makes a difference in your life.

Don't you think?

Your own special life

You are who you are. Why bother being ashamed of your one-of-a-kind, unique personality and apologize for it?

A good friend of mine once said: " I am what I am because of God. If you don't like who I am, don't tell me ... tell Him!" lol

It was brilliant. He was leading his life with conviction and that's what he chose to be so I understood what he meant. I also saw his confidence and his determination. He was larger than life!

I envied that.

Funny how he was so happy, so content in his life. Not that his life was easy and perfect but he was doing the best he could. He didn't regret much because to him, we all fall short and all we can do as imperfect people is give are best and put our best foot forward. That's it!

That was his secret.

You've made mistakes? Who hasn't?

You know what matters? It's that you're here today ready to be the best you can be. You have a purpose, you have the want and will to show that purpose in many ways.

Forget about chasing fame and fortune. Forget about doing anything for the approval of others if for no other reason to have them. The best things in life are free and are true to you.

Stop settling for crumbs and take center stage. We were all born a blessing and we all have gifts.

So stop hiding behind your self doubts, your failures, your stumbles.

Stand up and shine!

Think for yourself

If you expect to be told what and how without taking the time to understand the why, then be prepared to be deceived.

You have a mind, so use it, especially when it concerns you and your affairs. Life is complex and no one expects you to know everything about everything but when you take the time to learn fundamental principles of what you're doing and use it with solid reason, you've got a good base to work on.

When it comes to your health, your money, your career, your property, your family and your future, it's YOUR responsibility to understand. The person best suited to act in your best interest is none other than you.

It's up to you

You can't solve a problem by expecting others to change.

The problem isn't the situation you're in. The problem is the way you interpret it. Your perception.

The problem isn't the way you are treated by others. The problem is the way you allow their actions to affect you. Your choice.

The problem isn't what happened in the past. The problem is that you're letting it continue and it's holding you back. Let it go.

Take responsibility for a problem and right there and then you are 90% closer to solving it. When you take responsibility, you take back control.

Under YOUR control ...

The way you think, the way you act, and the way you feel ... makes a difference in your life. Those things are under your control. Each moment of a day you hold the opportunity to decide how your life will be for you you.

Ask yourself:

How do you want it to be?

Take control of your thoughts and make them positive.

Take control of your actions and make them count.

Take control of your feelings and make them empowering.

So, stand up, step forward, and seize the day.

Time for my pick of the day

Here's a song to remind me of that. Bon Jovi -- It's My Life

Well friends, it's time to get gettin .... I wish you all a great day and be good to one another. Don't take your freedom for granted because it's not a given for everyone to do so.

You know the drill ...

SMILE! ... You're on candid camera!
