“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.”–Earl Nightingale
One of the hardest lessons I’ve learned is how to live in the moment. Not have my mind worried about the end of the month bills or some other monster that’s not even in the room.
We tend to project ourselves down the road as it were. Worrying about what might happen instead of focusing on tasks at hand. Solving problems takes immediate action. Not something you delay. Focus yourself each day.
When we worry about problems that are looming but not yet come to fruition. We stifle any real progress we could make. Take each day and give it the full attention of your efforts. Learn the difference between activity vs. productivity.
If for example you’re worried about the rent and you still have two weeks work left. Lot’s of things can happen in two weeks. Ask your boss if you can volunteer for overtime. Take a coworkers shift. Sit down and breathe for a moment and see what solutions could be available. Consult with someone you trust.
Answers can come when cooler heads prevail. Freaked out, worried minds, produce the same result. Learn to get rid of stress, meditate, breathe, pray, walk, workout, and if needed take time for YOU!
Get busy living now. Make yourself do something that gives you pleasure. You can’t stress 24/7 and ever expect a good result. It’s difficult to begin; it was for me at the beginning. Now I can let go of my day and recharge my batteries to face a new day tomorrow.
With practice and commitment, you can do the same. Find time to let your head relax. So go take a walk and enjoy the moment!

“So I say to you, Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.”–Jesus Christ
You have not because you ask not! Have you prayed today? Do you take time to meditate, be grateful and connect with source?
Learning to make these things I have asked will change your life in ways you’ve never dreamt. Learning to make prayer and gratitude a part of your day, again hang on the to rocket that becomes your life.
Prayer is such a simple thing to do, just let God know what you need. Don’t beg he knows, and then be grateful you already have an answer. Stay in faith, this is what fuels your prayer. Let it go to God then do your part and trust in God even when you see NO immediate results.
The Lord may have to move things around in your life to give him a chance. Never lose faith; this is key!
Begin a life filled with prayer and gratitude, give it a real shot. Your life will change forever!

“Mankind has probably done more damage to the Earth in the 20th century than in all of previous human history.”–Jacques Cousteau
If you want to be a blessing on this earth. Pick up a pound of trash today! Does not seem like much but, it’s a pound of less waste impacting our environment. Imagine if thousands of people did this every day.
Part of our Life Research Project talks about being a blessing. Getting outside yourself. What could you do in your area of the world to simply pick up a pound of trash? Taking care of God’s earth is a stewardship we all have. Of course, we don’t enjoy to pick up trash, but if WE don’t who will?
Stop walking by trash and reach down and pick it up if safe to-do. Be a blessing to our environment. When you know that what you’re doing is the best you can do, miracles will happen for you in so many ways.
Feeling good about you! Has measurable gifts for your life. When you make life not about you, you, you, find time to be a blessing to the world around you. Your heart will change, your life will fill with peace and joy. Try it!!!

“If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else.”–Marvin Gaye
This quote is so true. Making peace with yourself is liberating. It’s also very true if you don’t make peace with yourself you cannot find it anywhere else.
Self-destructive behavior, depression, will keep you from finding inner peace. So many suffer years without any relief. These and other situations will require some real self-evaluation to get some needed help. There is no substitute for professional help.
In working out my own life to find peace with myself. To enjoy myself! Some days are a struggle, but the good news I catch myself so that I can breathe for a moment to remember I am okay.
How I got to this point:
- Found a great Pastoral Counseling center.
- Learned to meditate.
- Read books with self-improvement themes.
- Read the Book of Proverbs!!!
- Attend Church, found a wonderful bible based church.
This is just a few things I have done. Practice being positive as silly as that might sound. Keep using affirmations over, and over again. It works!
NO matter what you’ve done in your life. If you’re not the same person you were, then don’t sentence yourself to a life of despair. Change and move on. Enjoy a new life and a new you.
It takes a bit of work, but completely worth the time!
Questions or comments:
“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon, and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”–Mother Teresa
For anyone in turmoil, silence can be defining. The clutter in our minds can be more defining than someone actually screaming in our face. When we’re in secrecy, this seems to be genuinely augmented.
The blessing we seek is to be able to enjoy the silence. No noise just utter silence. Just as Mother Teresa says in this quote, God is a friend of silence. Being ready to embrace the silence and not be deaf from the noise in our head, here we can find true peace.
Meditation can help you find the silence so your mind can be at peace. Beginning a daily routine of meditation will accelerate your ability to love the quiet. Most of us need some sort of ambient noise to not drive ourselves nuts.
Your meditation practice may need to begin with ambient noise, music, nature sounds or the like. As you progress in your training, you can start to wean yourself off the noise and learn to embrace the silence. Here is where you can indeed be one with the Universe.
If you want to energize your life, meditate! Learn to embrace the silence.
