Whoever said, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me” is out of their mind. I can think of a few hurtful things that have been said to me and some hurtful stuff that I’ve said. Even if we don’t mean to, we’ve all said hurtful things that leave marks on people. Then we hold grudges, some of which we don’t even realize until bad feelings come out of nowhere. I think a lot of hurt wouldn’t happen if we just thought for a second before we said those things that we just have to say. It doesn’t take much time at all. Try it. Now, instead of asking you what hurtful things you’ve said, I will ask you to focus on the other side of this.

What are some ways that you lift others up?

I sure hope you have something to say here. 😉

What We Need to Do

I really need to do what I need to do. I am talking about the goals that I have. These are huge goals, folks! I need to keep the date night with Jasmine no matter what comes up, I need to sell my house back in Georgia, I need to payoff some school debt that I have, I need to workout hard each and everyday to climb the 10 peaks that I want to this year, I need to eat right each and everyday and the list goes on and on. I feel like being lazy sometimes and this just isn’t going to cut it. I’m sure you have goals, too. These are goals that we need to train for, commit parts of our lives to and actually live like nobody else to reach these big goals. So, here’s my challenge to all of us on this beautiful, Monday morning, in April. Do not forget the commitments you’ve made. Don’t forget the goals you have written down or thought of. Do not forget your new years’ resolutions. We can do this.

So, what are some huge goals you have set for 2010?
