The Powers of a Positive Attitude

by Kim And Charles Petty

I am going to ask you to something very weird right now. First of all, I want you to listen to your thoughts. Now tell me, what thoughts fill your head? Would you label them as positive, or negative?
Now let's say you are walking down the street with these thoughts. Do you think anyone who would meet you would be able to tell you what's on your mind?

One Way to Beat Stress: Arrive Early!

by Mary Gardner

I’m so excited that I have discovered this secret today. It’s something that I promise will reduce the stress level in your lives. It’s easy, convenient and all you have to do is plan: THE NIGHT BEFORE!
Today was the third day of school for my son Jeremy. Today we were among the very first people at school. Every single day, the kids line up in the parking lot at the school with their teachers. At 7:55am, the principal, Mrs. Katie Walsh, directs the students in The Lord’s Prayer, and the Pledge of Allegiance. It’s a wonderful tradition and unites the school every single day.

What makes us better and greater then what we are?

by Adam Peters

This article emphasizes on the most important phenomenon of life, the pursuit of excellence and perfection. It also throws light on what brought Spartans to extinction, which gives you a better idea on what this article is all about.  The 'Spartan' word gives the meaning as austere, frugal or simple. It is dedicated to one city in Greece. The people of this city left the world with an excellent lesson on what does pursuit of excellence mean. They however focused mostly on military ability and that became the reason for their extinction. In ancient Greece pursuit of excellence was pertained in many numbers of skills.

Wake Up to Your Life

by Carrie Spry

I woke up one day from my unconsciousness. I had no control over my life. It had been on autopilot for years. All of my decisions had been made unconsciously. How did I get where I was? My whole life felt like a dream. The only real thing I do feel, is this moment, right now. It is the only thing I can be sure of. Had I enjoyed the past years of my life, they all seem like distant memories. Why had I live unconsciously?

Life is About Choices and the Decisions We Make

by Kim And Charles Petty

Life is like a road. There are long and short roads, smooth and rocky roads, crooked and straight paths. In our life many roads would come our way as we journey through life. There are roads that lead to a life of single blessedness, marriage, and religious vocation. There are also roads that lead to fame and fortune on one hand, or isolation and poverty on the other. There are roads to happiness as there are roads to sadness, roads towards victory and jubilation, and roads leading to defeat and disappointment.
