I would like to tell the story about the adopted mustang Calypso, who saved me from a terrible accident. I adopted Calypso from the BLM along with two mustangs, when I heard that the government had tens of thousands of wild horses in captivity. When I got the horses home, I began learning how to introduce wild horses to the human world. I had four domestic horses and they were a big positive influence, showing...

When I first decided to start going to the gym, I thought it would be difficult and require a lot of discipline. Boy was I wrong. Working out is fun. Being out of breath is exhilarating, murdering your muscles feels nice and the endorphin rush is actually a thing. Every time i leave happy and confident. I thought I would have to force myself to do it. That it would take discipline and...

"Growth requires discomfort. If you stick with what is comfortable, you’re giving up any hope of surprising yourself, of finding greatness, of having the best experiences human life has to offer." — Thomas Oppong One of the most cliché, but ever-so-true, statements that many personal evolution coaches seem to agree on is the fact that the magic starts to happen...

She stared at her reflection in the mirror...beyond the bouncy curls and dimpled cheeks,there were her eyes,filled with apprehension and a sense of anticipation...would she able to face her fears with courage and overcome them? She had no answer at the moment...but one thing was for sure...it was time to show the whole world..and most importantly to show herself what she was truly capable of! We all...

Fearless Love

I was looking at some photo albums today. That is where us old folks used to store our pictures before smart phones were invented. Anyway as I was going through them I found a worn and dusty one at the bottom of a pile and opened it gently. As I slowly turned the pages I suddenly saw a picture of my beautiful daughter, Beth that instantly grabbed my heart and transported me back in time. It was 25...

Wednesday afternoon I was driving west on I-40 when my blood sugar dropped to a dangerous level. Luckily a Burger King restaurant was at the upcoming exit. As I stumbled through placing my order I mentioned to the voice on the speaker that I was diabetic and in need of food. Low blood sugar makes it difficult to think or act. I pulled up to the first window in order to pay for my food. I was shocked...

First Corinthians 13 Christmas Version

If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love, I'm just another decorator. If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show love, I'm just another cook. If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the...

If Opportunity Knocks, Build A Door

A lesson I learned in my life: If you sit around and wait for your life to turn out how you want it to be, it won’t. You have to come out your comfort zone. Take risks. Who cares if you make a few mistakes along the way! It’s better than not doing anything and not trying. I had to definitely build some doors. Find out what makes you happy, get inspired and build lots and lots of...

I Love When They Say It Is Not Possible

By CHS on December 04, 2017 / 2,807 views

By CHS on December 04, 2017 / 2,807 views

For me one of the biggest joy is to succeed in something to which others told, it is not possible. Several years ago i really longed for a certain position, and i worked hard for it, but i did not get. I clearly remember when one of my previous bosses told me: "you lack leadership skills and that is why we chose somebody else." A year later I got a very nice recognition from an organization called...

With Our Dog's Help

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 04, 2017 / 1,652 views

It is very quiet here as I write this. That wasn’t the case for most of the afternoon. My daughter had brought her four dogs over to my house. This was in addition to my two. For a few hours then the house was full of noise. There was running, barking, growling, and general furry roughhousing. Toys were chased after, laps were leaped on, and faces were licked. Doggie treats were devoured, heads were...

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 songbooks, walked up the steps, and knocked on the door. We heard a faint voice from inside say, “Come on in. The...

Typing

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 01, 2017 / 1,456 views

“Hands on home keys. Eyes on book. Ready. Type.” It was 1980. I was a 14 year old high school freshman and I was struggling to type a letter on an electric typewriter without looking at the page. Most of the other people in the class were juniors and seniors. I had decided to take the class early to get out of taking a foreign language. I had enough trouble with English and learning French or...

By Sara Wuillermin on December 01, 2017 / 1,585 views

My mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's 12 years ago when she was 54 years old (I was 22 at the time). This shows the progression of her disease from the beginning of diagnosis until about 2 years into the disease's progress. At this point, we were already aware that she had the disease--she was trying to crochet more to help keep her mind active, on recommendation from her doctor, so all...

The Wrong Wolf

By Joseph J. Mazzella on November 27, 2017 / 2,775 views

Ever since I was a boy I have loved and collected Native American stories and myths. Their wisdom and love of nature have always spoken to my soul. The one that sticks out most in my mind, though, is the story of the two wolves. One night a wise Cherokee elder sat his grandson around a campfire and told him about the battle that goes on inside of all people. He said, “My child, the battle is...

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 eyesight 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 we'd moved back to Michigan, Grandma Z. thought I should be her "personal secretary."...

Let It Go!

By Anjali Mohapatra on November 26, 2017 / 2,810 views

I was stepping down from the staircase of my office instead of using the elevator with a smile on my face. I don't know why, but my heart was filled with a peculiar feeling. Maybe it was due to excess happiness or maybe I was extremely emotional. This was my last day in my office. I was confused, what exactly was going on in my mind. My staff members wished me a lot of good wishes for the rest of my life....
