“… Instruments of darkness tell us truths…. While you live, tell the truth, and shame the devil!” (William Shakespeare). Intentional evil in the world is a direct result regarding improper utilization or underdevelopment of our thoughts and minds, which is often caused by ignorance, fear, greed, or neglect. Unhealthy environments, people, and experiences during a person’s early years can condition poor behavior patterns, whereas bad decisions become his or her norm. That poor behavioral acquisition can be reconditioned into greatness and unconditional love, via the potent power of choice.
“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face” (Mike Tyson). Troubles and set-backs can and do happen, but without a plan in place, failing is the plan. Knowing God’s plan trumps mine grants me peace to keep on keeping on.
“It’s better to have a bruised ego, than a lifetime of regret” (Author unknown). Going against the grain, breaking the mold, creating a path when none exists, offering possible life-giving services, is courage at its best. Go for it—help others. Live out your dreams!
Sharing messages of hope only takes willingness. Being bold and brave entails showing up and doing something to help others, despite possible criticism or embarrassment. Why not share a story of direct or indirect triumph to encourage and inspire others through challenging times? Lighten the burden of others via your personal story of victory. Transformation occurs from the inside out, which can be activated by an inspiring true experience and a spark of encouragement. Stay humble, letting go of an over-sized ego. Don’t waste hurt, trials, and burdens overcome. Share them with the world so others can benefit, knowing they are not alone in their pain and heartache. Strive to be a better person.
