Share The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly…. But Most of All… The Good

Too much of a good thing is wonderful -Mae West-

One of the things I realized a few years ago is how people, myself included, would elaborate endlessly to others about all the bad things that happen… the drama, the misfortune, the inconveniences of day to day life, how much gas keeps going up, the cost of living, the way children are today, the spot on my outfit, the weight I had gained, etc.

We can truly tell a story of bad things happening and have an entire committee of people to share it with and the more we tell it the worse and yuckier it sounds. Do bad things happen to all of us, you bet! Do we need to validate it, of course. However, do we need to rehearse it over and over again… day after day. Probably not.

The most interesting part of this is that we share so little good news. When we do share good stuff, we almost apologize for it or we speak real quietly as if we don’t want too many to hear it or preface it by saying… I don’t mean to brag or boast…

If what we focus on multiplies in our lives, let’s share some good with others and enjoy the greatness while it is lasting. Life has a balance of good and bad, dark and light, day and night. Many are out of balance and do not give credit for the good while it is happening.

Whole Self

Whole Self

When we live from a place of wholeness, then we are not experiencing life through the eyes of lack. Therefore, we can give freely of our time, our talent, and our love, for we know that the more we give, the more we will have to give. When we live from a place of wholeness,…

You Are A Modern-Day Mystic

How can words convey the depth and sweetness of unconditional love, the soul’s joy in coming home to God, the stunning revelation that despite all your errors, you are forgiven? How to describe the realization that your every thought and deed is known, and the bliss of being shown that your soul is pure, not…

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…
