How Heavy is this Glass of Water?
3 Strategies to Help You
Put Down the Weight of the Past
Some might say, “not
heavy at all,”or “a little heavy”.
what we really should ask is
“how long have you been holding it?!”
If you just picked it up you probably don’t
notice the weight too much.
after an hour, or days it’s pretty darn heavy.
Your fingers might start to cramp, your shoulder
your body pretty miserable.
Well, how long have you been holding on to difficult events
in your life?
The debate continues. Parents ask the question,“As we raise our kids,what's more important QUALITY time or QUANTITY time?”
The answer is simple …“Both!”
My son spells love “T-I-M -E”
13 years old, Jake is a ball of energy. He loves time with his mom and dad. For Jake what's most important is time ... QUALITY and QUANTITY.
Whether it's a walk on the beach, playing catch in the front yard, or sitting on the couch together watching television … Jake loves time with us.
There's nothing much greater than finding your niche.
Have you found your "sweet spot"? Your purpose? ... The place you "belong"?
Your "sweet spot" is a great place to discover!
I think the only thing that is more rewarding than finding your own “sweet spot” is helping your children discover theirs.
When my daughter Kelsey was three years old we enrolled her in preschool. We were excited for her to have an amazing experience in preschool.
We quickly discovered though that preschool was not her "sweet spot".
Love is more than an emotion … love is an ACTION. Love is a CHOICE. Love is active and the power of love is that it acts out even when our emotions are lagging. All of our relationships are improved as we learn to love.
The crazy thing with our relationships is that it is often more difficult to truly love those with whom we are the closest … both in proximity and intimacy. There are times when the struggles and circumstances of life makes our loved ones appear (or even become) unlovely and unlovable
My flu-sick son looked up me from his bed and said, “I hope I get better soon.”
For Jake, he was using the word “hope” like a wish … a dream.
He was “hoping” that he would get better like a person scratching a lottery ticket “hopes” that this is the winning ticket - the path to becoming a millionaire.
Jake had been sick for two days, and for him, it seemed like forever. He was tired of bed, tired of feeling miserable, he was even tired of television!

When you learned to drive as a teenager, chances are that you signed up for a state-mandated driver’s training course.

What is healing?
We can’t erase events that have happened, un-hear words that were heard, and un-do physical damage that was done. Yet there are thousands of people who have experienced serious pain, loss, and regret, who are now living lives of joy and fulfillment. How do they do that?
From my own experience I would describe healing as freedom. Freedom from negative thoughts and feelings that plague me whenever I am reminded of past hurts. Freedom to enjoy the good parts of today, and the good people in my life.
