#ThoughtfulThursday: Apply Within by Suzy Kassem


You once told me
You wanted to find
Yourself in the world –
And I told you to
First apply within,
To discover the world
within you.

You once told me
You wanted to save
The world from all its wars –
And I told you to
First save yourself
From the world,
And all the wars
You put yourself

#MondayThoughts – One, Two Punch

What helps you persevere is your resilience and commitment.

– Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Once you get something in your mind, it can become just another thought or it becomes an idea that leads to a dream and the goals within that dream.

Then begins the pursuit. You make plans on how to put your ideas into action and reach your goals to accomplish your overall dreams. Whichever direction you decide to take will be met with opposition, that is the forces that put themselves in the way of making your dreams come true.

This is where resilience and commitment come into play. You know how you can get something in your mind and you can’t let go? Well, think about when you get something in your heart. Your level of desire to see it through and reach that point of realization increases to the utmost degree. Resilience and commitment are a powerful one, two combo to employ.

The resilience to recover from setbacks and letdowns and the commitment to hang in there in pursuit of what you want and hope for. Like a boxer who trains consistently in learning this combo, we too much be consistent in exercising this combination. When you are truthfully committed to something you become more resilient along your journey. They go hand in hand.

When you are committed in heart, mind and spirit, no matter what arises, you will be given insight and guidance to one day experience that moment of what was once an idea is now a dream come true. Do not give up on you.

Stay inspired and keep rising.

#MondayThoughts: Well of Support

“My support system is simple – people and time. The miracle of other people in your life.”

– Kiki Smith


We all need support at times. Even if we cannot be there physically to offer support we can still give encouraging words, thoughts, prayers, just let that person know you are with them in their time of need or to support them in their efforts as they strive for their goals and reach for their dreams. Technology has made it possible to communicate in many forms.

Sincere support is solid support and it can go a long way into making someone’s day.

Stay inspired and keep rising.
