Dare To Be

by Sandra Foreman August 19, 2018

Discouragement can engulf our spirit. At home and at work, we question what it is that we can do. How can we make life better for those that are suffering on a daily basis?

We feel the heavy weight and burdens carried by others, even when we are not directly impacted. I call that pain compassion and we can use it for a greater good. We can find like-minded people who share our same interests and quest to make a difference.

I share the following entry as encouragement to find how you can make the world just a little bit brighter.
 
From Life, the Truth, and Being Free
Dare to Be by Steve Maraboli
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway. 
When something seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great, too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can-
At all times, Dare to Be!

I'm guilty as charged. Throughout the years, I’ve made it a practice to accept more commitments than I could reasonably handle. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Even with church, family, work, exercise, etc., I sometimes obligate myself to do more than I should.

Never Take Life For Granted

by Sandra Foreman July 28, 2018

"Never take life for granted. Savor every sunrise, because no one is promised tomorrow...or even the rest of today." - Eleanor Brown.

We live each day believing we will have a predictable routine. We sleep, wake up, eat throughout the day, attend school or work, drive our kids to their after school activities, go home,...

Solitude

by Sandra Foreman July 21, 2018

Solitude is where I place my chaos to rest and awaken my inner peace.”
– Nikki Rowe

Quite often, driving in our cars is the only time we spend alone. Although this is certainly alone time and might be peaceful for some segment of the population, most people would not consider driving in our cars quality time that is stress free. We’re dealing with traffic, possibly eating or drinking while driving, which is not recommended, and consuming ourselves with radio news that is filled with daily tragedies.
