The Millennial Warrior The Weapons of Warfare   I am in awe of this generation. They are fearless, technical, creative, and curious. They are light-years ahead of where I was at their age. The Millennials have had access to the answer to any question, immediately, at their fingertips, 24-7. I grew up in a generation who had to go to the library when curious about a subject matter. Some individuals were lucky enough to own a set of Britannica encyclopedias,…..

The spiritual Revolution The keeper of your heart Nine     I feel we are all aware of the negative things we are exposed to daily. It’s our responsibility to limit the amount of exposure we have to the toxic situations and individuals. When we hear negative information, and visualize unspeakable crimes against mankind on a regular basis it may bruise our spiritual being. We are critical thinkers, we know that exposing ourselves to toxic chemicals can damage our bodies…..

If you recall, I wrote on being creative in my sixth blog of A spiritual revolution. I spoke of retiring from a 35-year nursing career and realizing I had no outside activities that excited me. I vowed to attempt to resurrect the creative side of myself I had abandoned as a child. Well, I went to Hobby lobby and purchased some acrylic paint, canvas, found some images I wanted to sketch and fearlessly started creating. I decided the most that could…..

A spiritual Revolution Be Creative Seven   Some would define creativity at inventing something new. I love taking something old, boring, or discarded and bring life to it. I love refurbishing old furniture, re-decorating a drab room on a dime, and something as menial as having baked chicken one evening for dinner and re-inventing the leftovers into amazing fajitas the following evening. I know, right? I can’t believe I’m sharing this with you! Having the ability to bring life to…..

Spiritual Revolution Viewing the world through the eyes of a child Four   I recall struggling to learn to whistle at around the age of five, and I have been whistling ever since. My maternal grandmother use to tell my mother, ” A whistling woman and a crowing hen, never comes to no good end.” Viewing the world through the eyes of a child would require taking off your blinders. It would require retraining yourself to view the world without…..

Touching poem by an older man. Started by JessieBelle 4 years ago When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in an Australian country town, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value. Later, when the nurses were going through his meagre possessions, They found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital. One nurse took her copy…..

Welcome to the spiritual revolution. Most of us have accomplished our life objectives and continue to feel unfulfilled. We have somehow lost appreciation for the splendor of life. With an appreciation of life, we find joy, peace, and a since of awe in the beauty around us. When we were children we were overwhelmed with the splendor around us. We awakened each day with anticipation and excitement of the activities before us. We were easily entertained while lying in the…..

  Priceless gifts Time with a friend   I have many precious memories of my childhood. Some with my beloved family and childhood friends.     In 2014  I  was contacted by a family member that my childhood friend Nikki had been diagnosed with cancer. I called Nikki and we decided to schedule a much-needed visit. During the course of our conversation, I discovered Nikki’s mother, Janice had been diagnosed with cancer as well. I was deeply saddened by the revelation that…..

I’m stepping out! Substitute bad Behavior with positive behavior Offensive behavior or habits are usually initiated in one’s life to provide comfort from a stressful event or entertainment from boredom. Whatever the reason for the offensive behavior or habit, we must rid ourselves of them. Once we determine the reason for the offensive behavior or habit, we can find a positive substitute. If your trying to quit smoking and you tend to smoke when you drink, avoid drinking. You may also try…..

Remaining in the eye of the storm week 19 ” This is what you don’t do”   This is what you don’t do. Don’t let this world make you bitter. Don’t let the actions of other people turn you cold on the inside. Certain things happen that hurt us, people come that leave us, and most of all there are moments when you’re bound to fall. Don’t let those things make you unkind. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to…..
