Someone Trying to Tell Me Something

I guess someone is trying to me something. Just when I need to hear or read something, it pops up. It can be in a post or e-mail, there it is to help me, guide me. 

I guess I really need to start listening to them and live them. 

Greatness Within You

Another one from Les Brown.

I think someone is trying to tell me something. #20seconds, #onestepfowardthreestepsback

Do not underestimate yourself. You are capable of more than you can ever imagine. When life presses in on you the hardest, that is when your breakthrough is near. Press on. Do not stop to think about the work you have to do. Just put yourself on auto-pilot.

Hold yourself to a higher standard daily. Your family, friends and co-workers all look to you for their cues. Be mindful to lift the vibration in every room you enter. Treat yourself to a higher belief system. Trust and let go. Greatness is in your DNA. God don’t make junk. Each day you have a new chance to develop new ideas, reach for new goals and conquer new mountains. Chase down your dream like it is the last bus of the night. Go get it! You have something special. You have Greatness within you!!

I really need to find a way to truly believe and live by these words. 

One Step Forward… Three Steps Back

Well after my post from yesterday, I thought I was moving in the right direction. 

Silly me! Now I’m more confused, mad and heartbroken. I have no idea what to do next?

Ask Big

I’m not much in watching Joel Osteen’s ministry on TV. But the other night, it was on and didn’t change the channel.

His message was Ask Big.

#681, Ask Big

When we pray and release our faith—when we ask God to work in our lives—our asking opens the door for His great work in our lives. But, we have to ask.

Jabez prayed a bold prayer to God in 1 Chronicles 4:10. Despite his upbringing and surroundings, he dared to ask God for His blessing. “Oh, that You would bless me indeed.”

Are you asking big prayers, or are you letting your circumstances, how you were raised, how impossible it looks keep you from big prayers? Don’t let a lack of asking keep you from God’s best in your life any longer! Let this message inspire you to ask big so you can walk in the fullness that God has for you and become everything God has created you to be! (from

This struck several cords for me. And like many things that happen in my life, God is sending me messages that I need to listen to and open my heart to. But there are some roadblocks that I need to overcome before I can do that.

So I guess my first “Ask Big” prayer should be, how do I overcome those roadblocks that I have built around me?

Recently, I asked for prayers, good vibes and good juju to be sent my way. My family and friends showered me with all of that and more. So I know there are people out there that do care about me. I just need to let down my walls and learn to care about myself. I can’t be that bad of a person if all of those people took time to show me that they care for me.

So, how I’m I going to change that? That’s going to be a mighty “Ask Big” prayer.

Song of the Day

“Go All the Way” (1972) by Raspberries. 

First of love this song. Not sure when I first heard it, I was only six years old when it came out. 

Second, why did I just recently find out that Eric Carmen was the lead singer. You know, that Eric Carman who also sang “All by Myself” and “Hungry Eyes”?

Here are the lyrics, just case you need them to sing along. Still amazes me that I don’t remember what I did last week, but I know the words to this song. 

“Go All The Way”

By The Raspberries

I never knew how complete love could be

Till she kissed me and said

Baby, please, go all the way

It feels so right

Being with you here tonight

Please, go all the way

Just hold me close

Don’t ever let me go

I couldn’t say what I wanted to say

Till she whispered, I love you

So, please, go all the way

It feels so right

Being with you here tonight

Please, go all the way

Just hold me close

Don’t ever let me go

[Instrumental Interlude]

Before her love

I was cruel and mean

I had a hole in the place

Where my heart should have been

But now I’ve changed

And it feels so strange

I come alive when she does

All those things to me

And she says

(Come on), come on

(Come on)

(Come on), come on

(Come on)

I need you (come on)

I love you (come on)

I need you (come on)

(Come on)

Please, go all the way

It feels so right

Being with you here tonight

Please, go all the way

Just hold me close

Don’t ever let me go, oh, no
