Do right. Do your best. Treat others as you want to be treated. ~Lou Holtz

*****

So much freedom can be found when you live out these three sentences.

There’s no regret, no shame, no feeling bad for doing right, doing your best, and treating people well.

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less. ~Rick Warren

******

I’m actually pretty self-focused when it really comes down to it. 

I want this.

I want that. 

I want to do that.

I want to read this 

I want to eat that.

I feel this. 

How’s such and such going to affect me? 

Why don’t they like me? 

Why am I so fat? 

That person’s prettier than me, their house is bigger than mine. 

Why am I….

The list goes on and on, day in and day out. And you know what? The more you stay focused on yourself, the more opportunity to find things you don’t like about yourself. And we tend to latch onto those things…Did you ever notice that? It’s almost easier to believe the bad about ourselves.

Goal for today, ask at least one person what he or she wants/needs—and then do it.

And look for someone to do that for at least once daily.

It could range from noticing they might just need a hug. Or a sincere, “How are you doing?” Instead of the “Hey, how’s it going?” as I walk on by. 

You never know who you might bless.

Dreams become reality when we put our minds to it. ~Queen Latifah

******

How we think things through directly affects our actions. 

We often say negative things about ourselves, even if we brush it off as joking, that can really knock ourselves down. 

“I’m not good at that.”

“I’ll never be able to do that.”

“I’m slow.”

“I’m fat.”

“I’m not as good/rich/fast/pretty as that person.”

“I’ll never get that job/promotion.”

You get my drift. If we can work on switching how we think about ourselves, you might be surprised how our outlook on life might change and the things we could accomplish.

Stay strong, my friends.

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. ~Mignon McLaughlin

******

I’m celebrating 21 years of marriage with my husband today.

It hasn’t been chocolate and roses every single day of the 21 years, but what part of life is, right?

I can tell you this: as we live life together, facing the good & bad side-by-side, I fall more and more in love with him.
