All I needed to learn in life I learned from Charlie Brown... Including...

In a classic "Peanuts" comic strip, Charlie Brown goes to Lucy for psychiatric help. He says, "What can you do when you don't fit in? What can you do when life seems to be passing you by?" Lucy leads Charlie away from her booth and says, "Follow me. I want to show you something. See the horizon over there? See how big this world is? See how much room there is for everybody? Have you ever seen any other worlds?" Charlie replies meekly, "No." She continues, "As far as you know, this is the only world there is...Right?" Even more meekly, Charlie says, "Right." Lucy presses on, "There are no other worlds for you to live in...Right?" Charlie admits, "Right." "You were born to live in this world...Right?" "Right," says Charlie. Lucy then explodes, "Well, live in it then! Five cents, please." While we may disagree with Lucy's counseling technique, we recognize she is on to something. We need to make the most of our lives and really live. Sometimes this is easier said than done and sometimes we need help with it. In either case, I'm here for you.

Finding Happiness

I was saying yesterday that I'm truly happy for the first time in I don't know how long. It's not that my life is "perfect," (far from it LOL) but that I've found a peace inside. This peace is going to be different for everyone and there's no "secret" way of obtaining it. I know for me what's making me feel so happy lately, but for you, it could be any number of different things. To find your happiness start by taking a look around you and saying what you're thankful for (Do you have a home? A loving family? Friends? Food on the table? The ability to help others who are more in need than you are?). Keeping your focus on these things instead of all the negative things going on in the world today or even in your own life will help turn your focus onto positive things, thus helping you feel happier. Don't believe me? Start listing the things in your life you're thankful for, just for 5 minutes, and see how your mood changes. If you need some help with this, contact me, I'll always make time for you...

A Busy Couple of Days

I've been blessed, but busy, the last couple of days. My homeless ministry has really blossomed recently and so I haven't been able to stick to a schedule on here and some of you probably have noticed that I haven't been able to send out daily messages either. It doesn't mean that I'm not here, available for you, though. While I won't always have time to write up a daily message, I'm always thinking of you, even when I'm not online. I just wanted to give you a loose schedule for the remainder of this week so you can find me...

Tuesday 1/24
I'm on now until about 2:30 then I have to go pick up donations for the ministry and will return ASP.

Wednesday 1/25
I should be on tomorrow night but do have a meeting in the middle of the day. If possible, I'll be on before I leave in the morning.

Thursday 1/26 / Friday 1/27

I have another meeting in the middle of the day, but am not sure which day yet. I'll be around at times surrounding my meeting.

Saturday 1/28

I'll try to be on in the morning but will be out taking clothes and stuff to the homeless from 1PM - whenever it takes. Energy permitting, I'll be around afterwards.

Sunday 1/29

Between church and spending time with my daughter, this day is a bit weird, but I'll do my best to be on when possible.

I hope you'll be able to find a time when we connect. I look forward to hearing how things are going and helping you look forward to what's coming up...

A Time of Uncertainty for Many of Us

So many people are feeling so uncertain today... With Trump going into office tomorrow, Mercury coming out of retrograde (it'll finally be gone and leave us alone on January 27 throughout the month of February), and the weather being weird for most of us (bitter cold some places, no snow where there should be some) it's no wonder we're all going a little crazy and things seem so off and uncertain for so many of us. However, God is still here for us throughout it all AND I"m here for you too. Whether you need a friend, a confidant, or some guidance, I'm here for you. I'll be on chat for a few more minutes before I have to go to a meeting and out to take care of some things for my homeless ministry. I'll then have the phones on again tonight. If you don't want to talk, I do have email readings (3 questions, $10, FREE follow up). You can also feel free to email me anytime just to say hi or "Can you please pray for me?" I think of many of you as more than clients, as friends. The rest of you, I'd like to get to know better so I can think of you this way too. My phones and email box are always here for you, even when I'm out and about and can't be. So, throughout this time of uncertainty, I wish you all love and light...

God's Plans are Always Best

It's hard to believe when you look at something that's gone "wrong" in your life that God has better plans for you. However, it's important to keep the faith, even with the smallest of things.

Take for instance a major purchase that I've been putting off making lately... I finally made it yesterday. While I felt good about it, something just wasn't right. Come to wake up and find out that it wasn't approved. I decided to look at another company for the same product and saved myself money, with the promise of receiving it sooner too.

I could have freaked out, but I'm learning to keep the faith. Sometimes I still need a little help doing so and I'm here to offer that same help to you. I'll be on chat and phone all day today. So, if you need some help keeping the faith or you have a burning question that's preventing you from doing so, give me a call.

The Need for Clear Communication + Today's Hours

I genuinely feel as though most of our problems with other people stem from unclear communication. This is difficult to understand sometimes, especially when we're in the midst of such communication. However, if we step back and take a look at the issue at hand we'll see that either we weren't clear in our communication or we didn't understand their unclear communication. So, if you're going through something with someone today, give me a call so we can look at how everyone is communicating. I'll be around all day,

🌈 A Word of Hope 🌈

With all this talk that I've done this week about difficult people, I think we all need a reminder that at the end of every difficult situation in life there's a beautiful outcome. In other words, we're blessed once we've traveled through this tough road.

Whether it takes weeks, months, or longer we'll receive either an earthly or a heavenly blessing. For instance, my 6 months of living in crappy apartments has finally resulted in having a nice place to call home. Are you wondering how long your struggle will be or what your blessing will be, contact me and let's check it out for you today. I'll be available via phone and chat throughout much of the day,
