Don’t let evil win

Don’t let evil win!!!

Just want to jot a short note down to talk about not letting evil win. With all that is going on in the world it is easy to want to shut and lock all our doors and not go outside, let alone let our kids out. If we do that though I feel evil wins. We need to live each day like the gift that it is. We need to let our kids experience life. Now that is not to say you should not be aware of your surroundings at all times, but continue to live life to the fullest.

Go out and enjoy the good in this world!!!

2 outcomes: succeed or learn

Published / by caroline@myfriendcaroline.com / Leave a Comment

There are 2 outcomes when you do something, you either succeed or you learn. It is so easy to say “you win your lose”, “you succeed or you fail”. There is better to say this you either “reach your goal” or “you learned”. Failure is such a diminishing word. I have learned that when I have failed something, I learned from it. This concept helped me to continue forward to the goal I am striving for. The next time you come up short on a project or goal don’t say you “failed”, say “you learned.”

Not a dream, a plan

Don’t call it a dream, call it a plan. When you set your goals in life, we have a tendency to call them dreams. “My dream home”, “My dream job”, “My dream car”. We can “dream” all we want but if we don’t work towards those “dreams” we will never reach them. Plan to get that home, job or car. You can do it. It may not be right away but if you set a plan in motion, do the work that you need to do to achieve them, you will. Next time call it “The home I plan to buy”, “The job I plan to get”, “The car I plan to buy”. Not a dream, a Plan!!!!

Kindness

Kindness can spread quickly. When one act of kindness is done, it has the tendency to create another. Kindness doesn’t have to be a big gesture. It can be as simple as holding the door for someone. Let’s spread kindness through our family, work and community and watch it grow.

Be Still

Be still. That is very hard to do in these days. There is so much “noise” and “activity” going on in the world today. It is very easy to get caught up in the swirl of it all. Soon we feel so drained and defeated that we lash out in many ways. Maybe to our families, friends or at work.  We all need to find a time to be still. Maybe it is in the early morning or late at night. God is always there.  You just need to be still and know Him, pray to Him and most importantly listen to Him.  You will be amazed of how calm you can become when you do this. So at some point today, take time and be still.

Stand strong

Even when dark clouds are circling stand strong. Your faith is what makes you be able to stand in the middle of dark times. These clouds will pass, you just need to be strong and know that you will get through these cloudy times and that you will come out stronger on the other side. Stand strong in your faith today.

Don’t be afraid to jump

Don’t be afraid to jump. We can be just content to sit in one place and stay there. Never go explore, never go on any adventures….but if we do that we won’t grow. We need to leave our “lily pad” and jump to the next. Maybe that one doesn’t work and we need to jump to another one but we will never know unless we jump. We don’t learn without taking chances. Even if something doesn’t work out you will learn something from the experience and can grow from it. So now go jump!!!

Just listen

Just listen. When someone talks to you today, take a moment to truly listen to them. We sometimes have a tendency to bring the conversation around to being about us, or we just nod in agreement while thinking about other things. Listening is an art and we need to constantly work on it. Work on your art today.
