We have many examples in society today of people who are not living their full potential.

Maybe they've fallen upon hard times due to the loss of a job, perhaps they suffer poor health or have lost a loved one.

Perhaps they have fallen prey to crime or have an addiction in one form or another. Perhaps at one time in their life they did something they thought unforgivable and so the scars of that undoing keeps them from achieving their true dreams.

Anyone can change for the better. We need to remind ourselves just how wonderful life is; in part, because we are witnesses and givers of love and acceptance.

Forgive and you will be forgiven.

Love deeply and abundantly.

Be grateful and give freely to others.

Laugh with your family and friends.

Be full of energy and try new things.

Be willing to truly hear and understand.

Have no desire to win or be right.

Ask clearly for what you need and know you are deserving.

Be gentle with yourself and all others.

Those who can not control themselves may not control you.

Be interested and interesting.

Be of service.

Speak with God as if He were right next to you.

Take time to think before you speak.

Treat your body as a temple.

Have a better life right now.

"Time and pressure; strength and courage; and most of all things, God"
