Day 299 “Every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message.” – Malcolm Muggeridge Our likes and dislikes are more than just ego-based preferences; they are part of our internal guidance system. I was reminded of that this morning. I choseContinue reading “I Like It”

You Deserve It

Day 262 “Don’t ever criticize yourself. Don’t go around all day long thinking, ‘I’m unattractive, I’m slow, I’m not as smart as my brother.’ God wasn’t having a bad day when he made you… If you don’t love yourself in the right way, you can’t love your neighbour. You can’t be as good as youContinue reading “You Deserve It”

You Go, Girl!

Day 249 “Cultivate an optimistic mind, use your imagination, always consider alternatives, and dare to believe that you can make possible what others think is impossible.” – Rodolfo Costa I write about how we can be, do, or have anything we want all the time, and I completely believe that if you believe it, it isContinue reading “You Go, Girl!”

You Hold The Power

ThisContinue reading “Ageless Beauty”

Rohtak to Rio

Day 231 “You were born a winner, a warrior, one who defied the odds by surviving the most gruesome battle of them all – the race to the egg. And now that you are a giant, why do you even doubt victory against smaller numbers and wider margins? The only walls that exist are thoseContinue reading “Rohtak to Rio”

Represent Yourself

Day 230 “Champions are not the ones who always win races – champions are the ones who get out there and try. And try harder the next time. And even harder the next time. ‘Champion’ is a state of mind. They are devoted. They compete to best themselves as much if not more than theyContinue reading “Represent Yourself”

Role Models

Day 226 “Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.” – James Baldwin Follow your bliss.

Once you have figured out what you’re passionate about, you are naturallyContinue reading “Role Models”

Dream Chasers

Day 220 “My own heroes are the dreamers, those men and women who tried to make the world a better place than when they found it, whether in small ways or great ones. Some succeeded, some failed, most had mixed results… but it is the effort that’s heroic, as I see it. Win or lose,Continue reading “Dream Chasers”
