Your Heart Review

 
  If you wouldn't write it and sign it, don't say it.
 
  Think before you speak!! Words once said cannot be recalled and they can last a lifetime in someones mind.
 
  Not everything has to be put into words - Some thoughts should remain silent until your heart has a chance to review them !

Formula of Four

 
 
  FORMULA of FOUR:
Know what you want. Ask for what you want. Believe you already have it. Be grateful for your blessings.
KNOW-ASK-BELIEVE-GRATEFUL They all work together!
If you are criticizing, you are not being grateful. If you are blaming, you are not being grateful. If you are complaining, you are not being grateful. This formula of four can transform your life.
 
ARE YOU DOING ALL THE STEPS? OR, ARE YOU ALLOWING MINOR THINGS GET IN THE WAY OF THE LIFE YOU WANT AND DESERVE?   

Two Flames Don' t Cool the Air

NEVER ARGUE WITH STUPID PEOPLE, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
 
Two flames don't cool the air. Always be both professional and courteous in your interactions with your superiors and always be patient and understanding with your loved ones -  no matter how unreasonable they may become. This rational will show your character as having strength of mind and a gentle heart - two attributes of a powerful person.

Know Thy Self

 
       KNOW THY SELF

We have a TRUE SELF -the soul self and we have a FALSE SELF - the ego self... 
 
When we feel at peace and are filled with joy we are experiencing the soul self.
 
When we are overwhelmed by stress, crisis, doubts and insecurity, we are experiencing the ego self.
 

1. Our soul self is certain and clear about things. Our ego-self is influenced by conditions leading to confusion.
2. Our soul self is stable. Our ego self changes constantly.
3. Our soul self operates by a sense of truth. Our ego self is driven by the demands of I, me, mine.
4. Our soul self is at peace. Our ego self is easily agitated and disturbed.
5. Our soul self is filled with love. Our ego self seeks love from outside sources.
 
Prayer and Meditation are food for the soul. Wanting and over indulging are food for the ego. Which self are you choosing to nurture? 

People Tell Stories

 
 
PEOPLE TELL STORIES FOR MANY REASONS
 
To enlighten or entertain. 
To inform and educate.
To position themselves as an expert or authority.
To shape opinions and minds.
To expose a secret, confess a wrong, or set the record straight.
 
I told my story -A Rose for My Mother-  for all the above reasons
