I have a birthday coming up soon. While I am getting older the number isn't important. What is though is what do we do with the years.

It's true that we do get older and maybe slower. However, as we get older we get the benefit of wisdom. We know earlier what will happen because we've seen it ealier. We don't react because our maturity let's us handle things better.

While we may not win any running races against a 20 year old, we know what is important and what isn't.

Enjoy your birthday, share your wisdom, and love life!

How often do things change in your life? What do you do when that happens? Are you prepared?

Recently my oldest daughter graduated from High School and my youngest daughter finished her last year at Junior High and will be moving to High School next year. While watching them move to their next phase of life brings tears of joy and pride it also makes me think about changes.

Are you ready? How prepared am I for the changing world? How prepared are my daughters? Fortunately for me I have the best daughters anyone could ask for. When I watch them I see strong intelligient young ladies who I know will continue to make positive impact in our world.

We can't stop the changes going on and we don't want to stop change. Change is what brings us new thoughts, new things, and new friends. We need to trust that change is good and support those willing to take risks.

What can we do? We need to stop trying to stop change. It's not going to happen and you only limit yourself. Be willing to take that risk to learn. Be open to change for yourself and help others accept change. Don't be too prideful and think the current way is the only way. Change is good!

Do You Change

How often do you experience something or someone that tries to influence you in a negative way? Sometimes it's a "friend" who tries to get you to do something you know you shouldn't do. Sometimes it's more subtle than that though.

Sometimes we are in situations that try to change us. How often are you at work, at school, or at home and you get frustrated by what is happening? You might be upset with a peer, friend, boss, or a spouse. They might have said something or done something that got you angry.

Sometimes we react to the situation. Sometimes we want to get even. If they hurt us, we want to hurt them.

What should we do? You know what the right thing is though. Don't let your emotions get the better of you. Don't let the situation change you. Don't let someone else or something else change you.

Ultimately you control you. Only you can control what you do and how you feel. Don't let anyone or anything change you in a negative way. Don't react to situations in a bad way. Step back for a few minutes and think about how you are acting. Are you acting in a way your mom would be proud? Would you be proud to tell your children what you did?

Make sure what you do is positive.
