Hello to 2015

But, it is becoming clear to me that Personal Responsibility is the KEY to Freedom! The Key to a better life . . . to fuller use of the Life You have given me. Thank You, God, for 2014 AND for a New Year!

A Thermal Image of Myself?

I really want to take care of myself. But I feel as if I was absent when “they” taught Emotional Hygiene. Sigh, does anyone teach that? You say it is mentioned in the Bible — You call it speaking the Truth in Love. Hm. I just never thought about speaking the truth in love to myself! That sounds so obvious.

A Restful Day — And the Rest of My Life

Actually, what I want is something to help me generate options in what I do and how I live. That’s a bit more than Creativity. It is about Assessing, Weighing and Framing the Problem — or Problems.
It involves far more than simply Thinking. It’s about having enough Courage to See what is and enough Hope to Explore what might be.
