You Are the Author of Today


Your diet may not work, but you do. The latest fad might fade away, but you won’t. You are the life force behind change. Every decision, every discipline, every effort, is chiseling away; revealing the masterpiece within.

Don’t rely on things, methods, people, ideology, traditions; utilize them, and then create your own. All Creation lives within you! You are alive. Vibrant. Spectacular. You are powerful, beautiful, loved and lovable. There’s no better you than you.

Don’t give your power away. Be careful who you credit for your success. Great inspiration doesn’t transform; it ignites. You have the right stuff. You are made of the right stuff. Deep down inside of you is the you you’ve always dreamed of being. Today is your day to let your light shine, to let you come shining through.

Be you through and through. Love yourself. Hold your head up high. Do something today that makes you feel a bit taller. Stretch up on those tippy toes and smell the air up there where you belong. Celebrate yourself!

Leave the sad song, the who did you wrong song. Drop the chains, the guilt and the shame. You are not a mistake. It’s all been a test to show you how strong you are, what you are really made of.

Go out and create what you want today. It’s your life. It’s your story. You are the author of today.

Hold On!

Hold On!

When you wait for something for so long, every time you get an email, a phone call, some indication that “this may be the answer you’ve waited on” only to be disappointed, you can develop a pathology of losing. 

You want to believe, but because you’ve been believing for so long without seeing anything happen, you begin to wonder if your dream will ever come true. 

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick.” But, “Be not weary in well doing, for in due season you will reap if you faint not.” The hardest thing to do is to hold on and keep believing that everything will work when it seems like nothing is working.

I’m supposed to encourage you, friend, to HOLD ON!

I’m supposed to tell you that what you are doing and have been doing is working; you just haven’t been able to see the progress. Your progress has been taking place in places people can not see; yet.

“I’ve grown the inner you before the outer you.”

Friend, you must HOLD ON! PLEASE!

Heed the Word. Victory is just up ahead. Just around the next corner is what you have been working for. Hope deferred DOES make the heart sick, BUT when the desire comes, it’s the tree of life.

It’s your time now. Your desire is coming upon you.

Monday Perspective: “Be True To You”

Be True To You

In a world filled with opportunity, don’t miss the one you were born for. Be true to you.

Don’t be easily enthralled in the hype of every proclamation. Make a list, check it twice. Make sure your name is at the top. Act accordingly. No one can do you like you do you!
