In everything we do we can be a volunteer. It may be at work, the grocery store, or at home but in every moment you can be a volunteer. Your significant other may have had a bad day and you could volunteer to cook, do the dishes, or a multiple of things. Someone may say something in passing and it could be an opportunity to help them. Everywhere you look there are opportunities.

Pay attention to what people say, there is always an opportunity to volunteer to do something for them!






We all have shadows. We all have dark days but it is how we deal with those days that is important!

When things go wrong and you blame everyone else, how is that going to solve your problem? Whenever you have shadows or dark times, you are the constant in that equation. So pay attention. Know that you are the only person who can make the situation better or worse.

Be the conqueror in your life!




I have never understood why someone would discriminate against someone’s color, gender, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation. We are all born the same, put our pants on the same way and we all die. So what’s the big deal?!

Just because someone may be different than you doesn’t make them bad or wrong. The message is to LOVE not hate. That is what all religions teach.

So quit looking for the difference in people and find the happiness, joy, love, and common things you share! And you might actually make a lifetime friend of someone who is different than you. How cool is that!!!!



I find this to be true!  It isn’t that these people are anti-social but they just don’t have any tolerance for all the drama people can produce.

I know I get as far away as I can from those people that always have drama in their lives. It just doesn’t work for me and in fact, it wears me out just hearing them talk about it.

Sometimes we all need to appear ‘anti-social’ around those people that are fake and dramatic!

Play and Rest!

Play and rest

We have become a society that has fallen into the trap of ‘work is everything.’ If a person doesn’t work long hours then they aren’t perceived as working hard…. What a bunch of hooey!

There needs to be a balance in everyone’s life. Play and rest need to be a part of our everyday lives to make us a ‘whole’ person. As the saying goes, ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.’

Take time out each day for play (and get enough rest!)
