I am a Christian #lovenothate

I am a Christian, at least based on my understanding of what a Christian is; a person who has received Christian baptism or is a believer in Jesus Christ and his teachings. (Definition pulled from Google instant answer. For a more biblical answer to what being a Christian is, I found an amazing blog post) But, because most people’s understanding “definition” is so generic, it is allowing people to build a foundation around a word or phrase, rather than a specific belief system and way of life(or The Word)! As I say “belief system” I am talking about the belief that we are saved by the sacrifice of Jesus.
I feel the term “Christian” is being over-used by people who aren’t willing to live their life by the guidelines left for us.

OK, so I just sat down and watched “Bucket List”, a great movie and a must watch if you ask me!

But, while watching it I started thinking.  Not that I need a bucket list, but living life to the fullest every single day, that is living! So I think it is time that we all make a promise to each other!

There is nothing in the world that we may want to do that we can’t.  We just have to find a way!

How to be happy…

The “creed” in the video and below are both a bit different but both are powerful in words and I strongly suggest you watch the video above and read the words below.

The Champions Creed

I will conquer what has never been conquered,
Defeat will not be in my creed.
I will believe where all those before me have doubted.
I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor and respect of my team.
I have trained my mind and now my body will follow.

Who am I? I am a champion!

A Daughters Letter Home

Dear Mom and Dad:

It has now been three months since I left for college. I have been remiss in writing and I am very sorry for the thoughtlessness in not having written before. I will bring you up-to-date now, but before you read on, please sit down. You are not going to read any further unless you are sitting down. Okay?

Well, then, I am getting along pretty well now. The skull fracture and the concussion I got when I jumped out of the window of my dormitory when it caught fire shortly after my arrival are pretty well healed now. I only spent two weeks in the hospital, and now I can see almost normally and only get those sick headaches one a day.

3 Questions To Awaken The Real You” and reach your “Mental Fortunes“.

In our society, unfortunately, life holds just a little more than a spot in the 9-5 rat race for 40 years before retiring.  Too many of us will think about our life, looking back, and wish we had the opportunity to do something different.  Some of us may have been lucky enough to have the opportunities and didn’t take them.

Sound familiar yet?  (Don’t worry I’m in this field and I’m sure 95% of us are) Read More

I Want To Die

This just sucks and there is nothing I can do to make it better except…

Stay Boosted!

I know the title and the caption underneath it isn’t the best thing to have on “Stay Boosted” but I wanted to get your attention.

I have been watching a video with Anthony Robbins about a man who was suicidal and the troubles he faced along with the thoughts of why he wanted to end his life and it made me think.

 

There has been a few times when I thought it might be easier if I just end it all and “clock out”. But in those moments I was being 100% Selfish and wasn’t thinking about anything or anybody but myself.

The problems we face whether they are financial or otherwise are nothing but building blocks for our character. We see so much negative and focus on so much negative on a day to day basis that what we go through gets escalated until we think we are facing the worst thing ever!  I used the term “Stay Boosted” at the top of the page very lightly because some of you may not understand exactly what I mean when I say Stay Boosted.

We live in an age when stress seems to be around every corner, at every office.  The demands of modern life require us to be constantly “plugged in” through e-mail, cell phones, pagers, and Blackberry devices.  You might feel as if your senses are constantly being bombarded, both at work and at home.  As a result, stress might have led you to the breaking point.

But there is a great universal stress reliever—one that is close to everyone.  Nature offers bountiful opportunities for relieving stress.  It might seem old-fashioned to “commune with nature,” but it can be incredibly cathartic, decreasing your stress level immeasurably. Read More
