Time Is A Choice

By Laura Vanderkam on December 29, 2016 / 2,322 views

By Laura Vanderkam on December 29, 2016 / 2,322 views

Instead of saying "I don't have time" try saying "it's not a priority" and see how that feels. Often that's a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don't want to. But other things are harder. Try it: "I'm not going to edit your resume, sweetie, because it's not a priority." "I don't go to the...

What is pain? Pain is a reminder. It reminds us our mistakes. pain is an alarm of upcoming beautiful days. There are two types of pain in the world. First is physical pain like tooth ache, body ache, back pain, neck pain etc and second is heart pain. This pain has not any medicine yet. This pain only reduced by bearing it.

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 28, 2016 / 1,338 views

A beautiful, young girl is smiling at me from a picture frame on my desk as I write this. She is my sponsor child from the Philippines and even though I have never met her in person she has found a special place in my heart. It doesn't cost me much to help her, about a dollar a day. Yet, millions of people in this world live on less. The joy that helping her gives me, however, is beyond price. It connects...

A bit over a year ago my dad's health started deteriorating rapidly. he went from being a fully independent person to not being able to drive, walk or talk properly. he couldn't even think coherently, like his mind was in some other place. Last Christmas party he stayed in a dark corner all quiet and with no energy which shattered my heart like you have no idea. In the next weeks his organs...

If You Want To Hitch, Pay!

By Dadeaux on December 21, 2016 / 1,841 views

Back in 1980's I used to study in the city about 80 km (50 miles) away from my home town. I'd go home more or less every weekend, to have my clothes washed, to replenish my food supplies, and of course to spend a weekend with my loved ones. I didn't have much money, so I regularly hitched. On that Friday a car stopped, and I asked the driver if he was going to my home...

A Smile Is A Gift Worth Giving

By Kay Heitsch on December 21, 2016 / 2,565 views

By Kay Heitsch on December 21, 2016 / 2,565 views

I'd never really thought about giving a smile as a gift until this morning. Sometimes a smile is the best gift you can give someone. Yesterday I was in the grocery store. I saw an older man standing with a sad look on his face. I walked by and gave him a big smile. Immediately, his eyes brightened and he smiled back. I don't know why he looked so sad, but for that moment in time he...

By Carli on December 20, 2016 / 2,095 views

My husband and I have been together for a bit over 10 years. We met when we were 16, it's no surprise that we've both changed over time. I've been noticing some winkles here and there, mainly under my eyes and eye corners. Nothing major but... it's there. This weekend after not seeing each other for a week, my husband takes a long good stare at me. We often do this, because you...

At Christmastime And Always

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 19, 2016 / 1,339 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 19, 2016 / 1,339 views

I have always loved Christmas music and I don’t just listen to it in December either. I have been known to listen to "The Christmas Song" on the first day of Spring, "Jingle Bells" during the worst heat of Summer, and "Let it snow" while the leaves are peaking in the Fall. This year thanks to the gift of a new record player I was even able to play some of my Mom’s old...

When I was 12 I wanted to be a graphic designer and people told me it would be really hard since the amount of people who wants to be one is huge. I never gave up and worked hard and now I work for a big international company who cooperates with Dreamworks and Pixar as a graphic designer. Never give up if you really want to achieve your...

The Truth Is, I Don't 'Have It All Together'

By Dani Thompson on December 17, 2016 / 1,517 views

By Dani Thompson on December 17, 2016 / 1,517 views

Recently I have had a few friends and family members comment to me, 'you seem to always have it all together.' I want people, especially other moms out there to know that, I try, but the truth is, I don't 'have it all together.' In today's world, so many parents think they need to live up to a stereotype that in my personal opinion, completely hinders our abilities to enjoy the true...

By Harri on December 16, 2016 / 796 views

After months of staring in disbelief at the news about the refugee crisis last year, a few friends and I decided to use our interests and skills to take action. We organised a sponsored relay cycle from London to Athens to raise money for a refugee community centre in Athens. It went really well, we had 43 cyclists participate and we managed to fundraise £48,000, which is enough to pay for the rent and...

It will not make much difference friend a hundred years from now, If you live in a stately mansion or a floating river scow. If the clothes you wear were a tailor made or just pieced together somehow, If you eat big steaks or beans and cake a hundred years from now. Won't matter what your bank account or the maker of car you drive, For the grave will claim all...

My Christmas Miracle: The Day Death Took A Detour

Miracle - A surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency. ~ Webster's dictionary Not only do I believe in miracles, I expect them to occur in my life in answer to my prayers. Although we don't hear about divine miracles as often nowadays (probably because bad news pushes them off the front...

I Married Young And I Felt Unhappy And Depressed

By TheFunnyWeirdo on December 13, 2016 / 2,276 views

I got married when I was 23 years old, and for a while I was unhappy. I couldn't break up our marriage cuz I had always believed divorce was not an option. So I tried to live one day at a time, not over-thinking the future, hoping that things will get better some day. The problem was, it was all me, my wife didn't do anything to upset me and she's genuinely innocent. I didn't laugh when she was...

It's Christmas

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 12, 2016 / 1,916 views

It was a few days before Christmas many years ago and it looked like it would be a lean one for my family. The saw mill that I was working at had laid a lot of us off while machinery was being repaired so we didn’t have much money. My wife and I had scrimped and saved to buy our young children some toys, but an unexpected car repair had taken most of our cash. We decided then that we could only afford to...

View Your Time As An Investment, And Pay Attention To What Gives You The Greatest Return

By Anon on December 12, 2016 / 1,731 views

By Anon on December 12, 2016 / 1,731 views

Think of how stingy you are with your money: if someone on the street asks for $10, you're not giving it to them. There's no way you're giving a 30% tip for a normal dining experience. And so on. And yet so many of us just waste ungodly amounts of our time. We throw it away, every day. I know I do unless I'm careful. What helps me to not waste time is to see it as an investment, and...
