About Me

I’ve had to learn to live life on the positive side. If I can do it, I know anyone can. My goal here is to share my experiences, have others share their's and together we can help and encourage each other to be better people. As we all know, success in life takes effort, a change in behavior and the realization that you have to do both to succeed. Maybe you are one of the millions of people who begin every year saying, “This year is going to be different. This year I’m going to make my dreams come true”. If you do not prepare and change your actions from your current path for the upcoming year, do you really believe you will end up at a different destination than last year? What if we did it together, supporting each other on a daily basis. I hope you'll join the journey of finding positive light in an ever negative world.

Choices and Circumstances

It’s funny how we don’t really stop to consider how the choices that you make today might impact your future. When it comes down to it, who you are today isn’t necessarily the same person you were when you made certain choices that got you to this point. With that being said, you might not see the person you really are today until the results of the choices you make now come to light tomorrow. That is a pretty fine balancing act if you ask me. No wonder we get frustrated with our current circumstances; it is the result of where you’ve been in the past.

Our perception of our current situation in life frequently limits our ability to focus on what it is we want the most in life. There is a whole world out there and if we limit our thinking to only ourselves and the small piece of real estate we inhabit, we are selling ourselves short. By doing that we trap ourselves in unwanted circumstances and we begin to feel like we have no hope of achieving better things. If you can take a few minutes every day and look beyond your current circumstances, review the list of what it is you want the most, and remember that you deserve good things, you are capable and you are not alone, you can control the daily ups and downs in your life and become what you’ve always wanted. It is not an easy process that will happen at the snap of your fingers. It is difficult to pull yourself out of a situation and imagine yourself in another. Consistently practice this everyday by conscious changing your thought patterns when you feel that sense of hopelessness, imagining favorable circumstances instead of hopeless ones and being thankful for what you already have. Little by little you will change your belief in your ability to achieve your goals and the ability to be more focused on the things you want and not focused on the things you don’t want.
