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

By Dani Thompson on December 17, 2016 / 1,467 views

By Dani Thompson on December 17, 2016 / 1,467 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...

Positive Responses To The Refugee Crisis

By Harri on December 16, 2016 / 766 views

By Harri on December 16, 2016 / 766 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...

A Hundred Years From Now

By Warren Parker on December 16, 2016 / 1,514 views

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

By CE Johns on December 14, 2016 / 1,602 views

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 / 2,247 views

By TheFunnyWeirdo on December 13, 2016 / 2,247 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 / 1,914 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 12, 2016 / 1,914 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 / 1,711 views

By Anon on December 12, 2016 / 1,711 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...

I Was Given A $20 Dollar Tip And Was Touched When He Said Why

By Areazel on December 12, 2016 / 1,866 views

By Areazel on December 12, 2016 / 1,866 views

I was working a shift at my job, working behind the concession stand during a slow night, and I was wearing my uniform, part of which is a short sleeved shirt. I have struggled with self-harm for a long time, but I don't go out of the way to hide my scars because why not? Anyway, I had healed scars on the outside of my arm, still red but healed. These two guys came in, and as much as I try not...

Someone Paid For Groceries Today, And I Couldn't Stop Crying

By Mellow Bug on December 10, 2016 / 2,012 views

By Mellow Bug on December 10, 2016 / 2,012 views

Things have been rough lately. Like, grocery shopping at the dollar store rough. Borrowing money from my boss to pay rent rough. We were shopping for some little things today; burger buns, potatoes and some cheese. The last behind us had a grocery basket of food and told us to go ahead of her, because we only had a few things. After we were all rung up, she said she would pay for our items with...

Do Not Confuse Life And Love

By Jason King on December 09, 2016 / 2,462 views

By Jason King on December 09, 2016 / 2,462 views

Do not confuse life and love. Life will get difficult. Bills will cause stress, jobs will get old or lost, days will be tiring. You’re going to cry, get angry, wonder what you’re supposed to be doing, sometimes feel nothing. Cars will break down. You may have to sell possessions just to make ends meet and live of grilled cheese sandwiches and hope. This is life. It’s going to be messy. Too...

90 Days Without Alcohol!

By RMNZR on December 08, 2016 / 1,311 views

By RMNZR on December 08, 2016 / 1,311 views

First, some background: I grew up with a loving mother (and father). However, my mother had issues with alcohol; one beer / glass of wine would change her completely. She would say rude things - do many mean things. She would be full of sorrow for a while, ask us for forgiveness, receive said forgiveness, and we all would forget about it. So MOST of the time it was good, but every time she consumed alcohol the...

My husband Bill's Grandma Z. was in a nursing home when we moved back to Michigan. Grandma had been unable to walk for quite some time; now her eye sight was almost gone. Over the years Grandma Z. and I had exchanged many cards and letters. I knew how she enjoyed staying in touch with people. Since I'd come back to Michigan, Grandma Z. thought I should be her "personal secretary."...

Christmas Prayer

As we slowly drove down the street on that cold December evening we spotted the porch light. "This must be the house." I told our "Positive Teens In Action" group. We pulled up in front of an older home with the porch light glowing. We gathered up our song books, walked up the steps, and knocked on the door. We heard a faint voice from inside say, “Come on in. The door is...

One Day At A Time

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 06, 2016 / 2,318 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 06, 2016 / 2,318 views

It was many years ago. I was a young dad sitting on the couch reading a fairy tale to my little girl. She sat next to me with her head on my arm as I told the tale. When it came to the end I finished with those famous words: "And they lived happily ever after." As I looked over to her with her wavy, brown hair and big, innocent eyes I could see the smile on her face and I never wanted it to end. It...

"Can you tell me if anyone in our store does community service?" Bill asked. A person spoke up and said," I know that Rose does. She helps the homeless at her church." Bill, my husband, had recently been transferred to this store as the Store Manager. Bill liked to recognize employees who worked in community service. He met with Rose and found out about the outreach program operating out of...

My Favorite Christmas Gift

By Jason Curtman on December 04, 2016 / 1,830 views

I have received many Christmas gifts over the years. I remember many of them, from the tape recorder I received from my dad in 1975 to the black ebony guitar my wife gave me several years ago. The best gift I ever received was presented to me by a stranger. I never even knew his name and I only had contact with him for less than 60 seconds. His Christmas present to me changed the way I think about people and...
