A few years ago I lost my first and only ever full time job in mental health due to budget cuts. I loved that job and was very close to all of my clients and coworkers. Even with the high stress of the job working directly with adults with mental illnesses, I loved everyone there. After we shut down, I became depressed for several months so I took up a hobby. With the help of my husband, last year, we started a...

If there is one thing I have learned over the years it is that life in this world is bittersweet. It always has been and it always will be. I realized this early on and everyday I see further evidence of it. It is something that we all just have to accept. When I was a boy I cherished my books and toys, but then I lost them all when our house burned down in the middle of the night. Growing up I loved the isolated...

I have been undergoing anxiety for nearly more than one year. It started in my 40's. I have also been a person who lived by ticking off my boxes and wanting to everything to be perfect. I had lost my mum at 16 and never mourned her death though. Always wanted to be strong and do things and achieve. I left my family and migrated to another country. Now I have a great family and job but keep looking worrying about...

Always Choose Kindness

Words are powerful. They can build up, and they can tear down. A careless comment can profoundly hurt in ways the speaker never intended, or, perhaps, way worse is to purposely hurt another. For many years now, for as long as I can remember, I have never really cared what people think about me. As it is often said, your opinion about me is none of my business. And it should not matter what people say or think about...

When there is a will, there is a way. Caleb's buddy, Ike, missed him very much. I went to the kids room earlier today and played with Ike for a bit, and he asked how Caleb was doing, and so did Caleb's other friend Casey. We said our goodbyes and I headed back to Caleb's room. Ike rolled over in his wheelchair and knocked on the door because he wanted to say hello. But Caleb is unable to leave his room, so I...

What do we all want in this life? The answer is simple. We want happiness. We may take many different paths to reach it, but happiness is the final destination we all are trying to reach. Many of us pursue it in things, work, and people. Others try to create it in what they think and do. Yet, happiness remains elusive. Like a butterfly it flies away each time you try to catch it, but can come and land on your...

Laundry Made Me Feel Better

By Lori on September 09, 2014 / 2,469 views

Tonight I was having a random mood I catch often when I can't really seem to pick myself up. I was finishing laundry and going to get it out of the dryer. As I retrieved the articles one by one, heat emanated from them and completely overtook me. It brought me good memories, of times when I was younger being at home, and helping my mom get the laundry out and take it to my room. Of the simple act of folding...

Small Gesture Can Make The Difference

By NIKI on September 05, 2014 / 3,729 views

Hi, I feel that small gesture can make the difference but for that you have to notice small things around you. If someone work for you & u give him some appreciation for his work it will boost his efficiency. If your mother cares about you at least you can take care of her small & basic need. A wife who is always there whatever you need at any point of time you can appreciate her or do small things that...

It was the middle of August and I was looking out on the first red leaves as Summer gave way to Fall here in the mountains of my home. I knew that soon the forests would be awash in glorious colors painted by God's own hand. The yellow leaves would be shining like the sun above them. The golds would be gleaming like priceless jewels. The reds would be radiating joy to everyone who gazed upon them. The oranges would...

A Tribute To My Grandmother

By Tiki on September 02, 2014 / 3,604 views

Out of anyone in my life, my grandmother is by far the one person who is always thinking about other people instead of herself. I come from a semi-Americanized Korean family and we pay tons of respect to our elders, but as the years go by, my grandparents haven't been getting as much recognition from the younger generations. It kind of makes me sad. My grandmother doesn't come off as the "sweet" type. I'll...

Being an inspirational writer I get a lot of letters from readers asking a lot of questions that I can't answer. I have learned a lot of things in this life, but there are many things I don't know and may never know. I don't know why people have to die. I don't know why a disease will take one person's life and spare another's. I don't know how some people can rationalize hurting and humiliating others. I don't...

Compassion

By Joseph J. Mazzella on August 20, 2014 / 8,618 views

Compassion is such a wonderful thing. It is full of sympathy, empathy, love, goodness, kindness, and caring for others. We are all made by God to be people of compassion. Far too often, though, we fail the test. I myself have failed the compassion test more times than I care to remember. Yet, as I grow older and wiser I still strive daily to fill my soul with compassion and to share my compassion with everyone I can...
