Kids smoking Juul’s

Instead of dropping them

Tarnished gems

Mind & spirit dull

Lulled to sleep

They forgot how to be woke

Creativity gone

(Puff) up in smoke

How do we wake them?

Where they stop sipping syrup…



This morning I was reading from “A Return to Love” and found these beautiful passages:

“During the time of the darkest of night,” says the Talmud, “act as if the morning has already come.”

God provides the answer to every problem the moment it occurs.

If we accept God’s will as already accomplished we experience the healing of all wounds immediately.

The universe is created to support us in every way.

God is constantly expressing his infinite care for us. The only problem is we don’t agree with him. We don’t love ourselves as he loves us and so we block our experience of the miracles to which we’re entitled.

On Being Right

We all want to receive confirmation and acknowledgment for having the right answer. Being the go to guy or gal for when things get tough and someone else needs clarity.

We want to win the argument, get our point across, and convince the other side to see it our way.

But there is a fine line between needing to be right and having the right answer. The former is all about ego, pride, and dominating.

You can (and perhaps have) gotten your way by needing to be right at any cost. Unfortunately your need is driven by ego. Which will eventually push those you forcefully got on your side farther away.

On the flip side being right by offering solutions, seeking guidance/counsel, putting yourself in others shoes and moving closer to the problem changes everything. Resulting in better answers and outcomes.

Not needing the credit or being seen as a hero or the man takes humility and confidence. Both of which will help you build momentum without ever being right.

Just 10 Minutes

Time is relative to what you are doing with it.

10 minutes with a group of friends laughing till it hurts and it flys by.

10 minutes with your hand over an open flame and it lasts an eternity.

Pleasure and/or pain make all the difference in how fast/slow you perceive time to go.

30,000 Days

The average person gets 30,000 days to live or 86,400 seconds each day.

How you choose to use them is up to you…choose wisely!

How many days have passed? How have you lived them? How many more do you have to live? How can you add a few (or better yet many more) days to your count? How will you live them?

Everyone gets the same 24 hours yet some can squeeze more juice out of the day. How do you get the most juice out of yours?

Tomorrow (God willing) I will have lived more than 1/2 of those days. And look forward to getting the most out of those that remain. 😃
