I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

For most of us laughter doesn't come very often, yet the magic it performs on our well-being can't be denied. It helps you enjoy friends and family. It diffuses stressful situations and it allows you the opportunity to keep things in perspective. In times of adversity, humor helps you to cope and survive. It helps you recognize absurdities in situations, and eases the tension. Recognize what makes you laugh and put more of it in your life. Let your sense of humor see the fun in everyday experiences and open yourself to silly and outrageous thoughts. Allow your laughter to flow. After all, laughter IS the best medicine.Some of us suffer from painful relationships, dead end jobs or survival mentalities. The truth is that we are not going anywhere because denial or blame keeps us stuck in misery. This kind of life is awful. Think about your own situation. Are you using denial to survive dissatisfying consequences? Accepting and taking responsibility for mistakes and choices is not easy. It takes courage. But you must accept responsibility if you want to change. When you accept the reality of your situation, you take the first essential step to a new and better life. This is the reason for celebration!Even if the previous five thousand days have pushed you backwards, you can still move forward today. Even when your resources have been depleted and your options have been exhausted, there is still a way to move ahead. Never, ever give up, for even in the darkest night there is always, somewhere, a source of light. Even in the most difficult situation there is always, somehow, a way to triumph. Though troubles come rolling in unexpectedly on a regular basis, life is, unquestionably, very much worth living. Amid the pain, the frustration, the disappointment, there is yet something of unfathomable value and beauty in the experience. Take hold of the abundant goodness that can never be extinguished. Live every day in awe of the fact that you're alive. Never forget what a priceless, miraculous gift you've been given. The ups and downs of life pale in comparison to the magnitude of the blessing that is life itself. Remember who you are, what you are, and why you are. Even though the going sometimes gets rough, it is a blessed experience which has no Ralph Marston
