Fail your way to success.

Let's talk about fear for a moment ... fear is the thing (most often times) that keeps us from trying new things or meeting new people. Fear keeps us from taking risks. Fear keeps us from learning, growing and making progress.

We avoid what we think would equate to failure because we won't take the risk, or dare to step out into the unknown.

When we want to move forward, we must not let fear stop us. We can't be afraid to take a risk!

I love this quote by Thomas Edison -
"I have not failed. I've just found 10000 ways that won't work."

Today - move forward! See the possibilities that lie ahead.

Learn. Try. Do!

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Thomas Edison

Wise words from a Pirate.

The problem is not the problem.
The problem is your attitude about the problem.
~ Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean

My daughter made the above featured t-shirt during a recent church youth activity. So glad she chose to create something about attitude. Our attitude determines everything.

I agree with Jack - the problem is NOT the problem.
Your attitude about the problem is.

You are capable of more than you know.

I was at church yesterday and heard something really great. That usually happens to me every Sunday - at church. God often uses people to answer our prayers, or to add inspiration and knowledge to our minds ...

Anyhow, the quote was this - "No matter the question, love is the answer."


Love is the answer. Every single time.

There are times when it seems easier to just act with anger, or to ignore or to become a victim or to blame or to insult or belittle.

None of those work. They add up to regret and sorrow.

The answer is always act with love. No matter what.

Love lifts, it heals, it inspires, and mostly, it is healthy and allows people to move forward!

Today, tap into that source inside of you that is full of love and forgiveness and share it!

Use your love to lift.

You are capable of more than you know.
Choose to LOVE.

Invite Heavenly Father to be part of your loving equation ... pray. He is there. He listens and will lead you along!

Walking the Freedom Trail in Boston, MA ...

The Freedom Trail contains 16 sites across three neighborhoods. The way is marked by red bricks through the city. Kind of like following the yellow brick road.

Yes, you get smarter as you go - so much to see, learn and experience!

This was an incredible historical journey for me! I loved visiting the Old North Church, The Bunker Hill Monument, The Boston Massacre Site, Paul Revere's house, The USS Constitution (AKA Old Ironsides), and the Old State House.

I've had a chance to reflect on that Freedom Trail, and made the conclusion that we all have a trail of our own to create and mark.


If you get the chance to visit Boston, carve out time to walk The Freedom Trail - along the streets of Boston - you won't be sorry!
