Are You a Superhero?

There are people we meet in life that make everything seem magical. To me they are personal Superheroes! You know the ones I’m talking about. When you see their caller ID on your phone and you look forward to answering. The one who walks into the room and you just know it’s going to be a great meeting or party. Or the person who causes your shoulders to drop in relaxation, no pretense needed. They come into our lives to nourish our souls, support our efforts, and encourage our journey. These special people are our Light sources sharing their positivity. They help make any day or situation a little brighter. And in their own special way, these Superheroes urge us to be better in so many ways. What a gift to be able to see the beauty, humor, or meaning in daily routine and frustrations. Hopefully we can surround ourselves with Superheroes soaking up their positive energy propelling us to be the same for others. That’s really what we are called to be for one another. That’s our life’s work, no matter what professions we have undertaken. We are meant to help each other interpret life as it was meant to be. We are transformers and superheroes amid the daily grind. Recognize who these people are. Cherish them. Be grateful for them. Pray for them. Call them. Eat with them. Laugh with them. Cry with them. And above all, learn from them. Be one of them! Alan Watts, an English philosopher and expert in comparative religions stated that, “The whole art of life is knowing how to transform anxiety... read more

What’s Your “Go-To”?

We all have “go-to” places, clothes, and patterns. We keep these comfortable, reliable, and proven routines and places for “ready referrals” in times of stress or question. We surround ourselves with habits that we are accustomed to because we know they are reliable and we know what to expect. No surprises! What’s your “go-to” restaurant for Italian food? What’s your “go-to” place to buy birthday cards? What comfy clothes do you don on a rainy day? Groceries? We all have our everyday references to make our daily lives easier, but how about your spiritual “go-tos”? What are your favorite rituals, prayers, and hymns that bring you the needed comfort and Divine connection that we all seek? Years ago I read this prayer and I can’t even remember where I got it, but it’s my “go-to” morning prayer starting my day off with 3 imperative attitudes. Try this prayer to begin with a glorious, faith-filled and hope-filled day: “Perfect God. Perfect God within me. Perfect life within me, which is God. Come into that which is me. Lead me to the path of perfection and cause me to see only the good.” (Usually I add one of my favorite psalm verses: “Only good and kindness will follow me all the days of my life.” (Psalm 23) These 3 attitudes are essential  for any day: – God is Perfect….Praise – God is with me, in me, leading me through to my soul’s mission. Faith – All that happens is for the best. – Hope Remember that prayer is not to pellet God with what WE want but to get our lives more “in... read more

Why Wait to Be Happy?

I’ll let you in on a little secret. “Happiness is not a gift, it’s a skill.” (Secret #7 from “A Change of Habit”). We know that we cannot change what happens to us. The only thing we do have control over is our ATTITUDE toward the situation. Choose happiness, but how? One key to being able to opt for happiness entails “being in the present” or practicing “mindfulness” throughout each day. Walt Whitman penned, “Not in another place…not for another hour, but this hour.” This powerful thought centers on our being in the present moment where the happiness is. The “now” situation may not be perfect; the weather could have been sunnier, the meal could have been tastier, or the game could have been won. If you are waiting for the PERFECT service, or events to turn out the way you envisioned them, then you are missing the happiness offered to you at that moment. Actually the moment was perfect all along, we just miss it looking for something “better”. We all need to appreciate what we get in this life, after all, “it’s the best we’ll ever get!!” Alfred D. Souza shares his “aha” moment, “For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life”. We waste so much time and energy wishing, desiring, and... read more
