Carrie Fisher said "Sometimes you can only find heaven by slowly backing away from hell." Wow... that's a pretty amazing thought! Think about the number of times we make choices each day. You made a choice to listen to me... even if it's just a minute... you are spending your minute listening to the words I have to say... I hope this leads you in the right direction. When we chose to go left or right.... when we chose to move forward or backwards... we make the choice to be right where we are. Sometimes these choices are made for us, but whenever you have the choice... choose to do things that lead you to the positive things in life!

Troy Warren said “Worrying is using your imagination to create something you don’t want.” Troy has that on the signature of his emails. He and I were sending messages back and forth about something else and I saw that... and LOVE it! So true too. Why spend time worrying? Use your imagination for something more productive and meaningful! Think about the things you could do that could lead to something positive. Worrying will only lead to negative things. Put yourself in control if what you think about. When you have worried thoughts... let the goalie in your mind kick them out of the way! You get to decide what makes it... and what does not!

John Templeton said “It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice." I love this quote. There were a few people attached to this one, but John Templeton is listed as the one who said it this way! Either way, I agree with all of them. It is nice to be important, but it really is FAR MORE IMPORTANT to be nice! Here's a little inside secret... you can be BOTH! If you want to be truly important, be nice! I remember a few years ago, as I was entering a party, there was a little snow on the sidewalk. I saw a guy shoveling the snow. I went over to see if I could help. It was the GOVERNOR. He said “go inside and enjoy the party” I was amazed at that!

Louis CK said “The only time you look in your neighbor's bowl is to make sure that they have enough. You don't look in your neighbor's bowl to see if you have as much as them.” I love this quote. I had to look to see if it's the same Louis CK... it is. He's a comedian who is known for “other things”... but I love this quote! We absolutely SHOULD be looking to see if our neighbors need help! Don't compare how well you're doing to how well they're doing, but do your very best to help a neighbor in need if you're in a position to do that! You help can come in the form of helping them, giving them help financially... or even spending time with someone alone!

This was shared on facebook this week... I love it! Billy Graham was an evangelist minister who traveled the world sharing his message. I have no idea what kind of husband or dad Billy was, but when a reporter asked his wife Ruth the question, “Doesn’t it drive you crazy that Billy is on the road 7-months of the year?!?” She replied, “I’d rather spend 5 months a year with Billy, than 12-months with anyone else”. It’s so easy to walk around focusing and dwelling on the 10% of our life that’s not perfect, but what if we all spent our time and energy celebrating the 90% of our lives that are amazing? Make a difference this week... spend time on the right things!
