I do things that reflect my higher self. In an effort to be my higher self rather than grasp for something always beyond my reach (like ‘want to’ implies), I state that I ‘am’ instead of that I ‘want to be’. I am my higher self and do things that reflect me.
The adversary makes me feel terrible, bad, angry, upset, and hopeless as long as I’m on the fence. Once I step onto the Lord’s (goodness’s) side not only does He defend me but so do all the hosts of heaven throughout all eternity.
Sometimes I’m mad and rightly so, but what else can I do but forgive and not get a bitter heart. I ask the Lord to forgive me and yet I do the same thing time and time again. But He mercifully forgives me every time I repent because He knows I’m not perfect but am […]

Very recently I subscribed to receive daily inspiration from an achiever who is a mentor to me of what I want to become. Yesterday, his suggestion was to narrow my ‘to-do’ list to three things then to throw the rest of the list away. I’ve had my ‘running to-do list’ for years but really it’s […]
“I surround myself with what motivates me, inspires me, reminds me of my goal, and celebrates my accomplishments. I surround myself with people who are what I am.
