Another Birthday, or not...

     The roller coaster of my life hit a major high and a major low during my recent birthday week.
     I had a great birthday. I did exactly what I chose to do all day, and that included getting my first (and LAST) tattoo. It's a small infinity symbol on the inside of my left wrist. It's red, of course, my favorite color. It's my reminder that I am an infinite spiritual being temporarily in a human body, and everything in the universe is infinite, including and especially love. Which leads me to the low of the week...
     My great-nephew, Ricky, at age 20, decided he'd had enough of life on Earth, and ended his life. It's a terrible shock to the family, because Ricky was a wonderful, sweet, ambitious and industrious young man. Alas, he didn't seem to feel those qualities in himself. It's so sad.
     My point... appreciate the people in your life! Whether it's your significant other or an occasionally-seen service person, let them know you are glad they are on the planet with you. Smile. Say "please" and "thank you." Make eye contact. You don't know how important a simple loving gesture may be. And it's impossible to be too loving. Let the infinite love of the Universe flow through you--it feels great!
     I love you, my readers! Have a great weekend!

Another Monday?!?!

Good morning!
Is this a great day to be alive, or is it "Back to work, Monday sucks!"?
I'm willing to bet that your choice to the above question will dramatically affect how your day goes.
I'm going with "It's a great day to be alive!"

A Tribute to My Dad

     This past Monday would have been my dad's 96th birthday. He moved onto his next life experience in 2000. It was a blessing at the time, as he had dementia such that he did not know his children or grand-children.
     I still adore my dad. He was an infinite source of practical knowledge. I learned my financial and business sense from him, and like him, I quit a job to become self-employed, quite a leap of faith, but in both cases, maximum reward on the happiness scale. And, I'd add, in his case a very profitable move. In my case, that's still developing!
    My dad always talked of how the Miller family has always been supremely blessed. Amen to that! I loved his attitude relative to seeing the good in people, most of the time. He was a very generous man.
    As a child, when I was not in school, I was in the lumber truck with my dad delivering lumber. I don't recall ever getting bored with being with him driving hundreds of miles around central Pennsylvania delivering pallet or cabinet lumber. Maybe it was the promise of an ice cream cone after delivery?!?!?!
    I miss him. I so wish he could see my sons, who have grown into awesome young men. I wish I could hear his voice and see his smile.
    Geez. He's been gone a long time. Where did all this come from? Reminiscing with my brother today about how great Dad was.
    Is your dad still on the planet? Appreciate him! Let him know you love him.
Tears of love and joy are flowing,

Dr. Chris Michaels, friend, fellow coach, mentor, wrote a book called Your Soul's Assignment. In it, he offers what how he has come to define success for himself:
1. Have fun.
2. Learn something.
3. Help someone along the way.
How awesome is that? Simple. Enjoyable. Really pretty easy to implement. I love this, and have adopted it as my definition of success, too. I believe that as each of us enjoys life, we DO most definitely bless others with our uplifting attitude and example.
So have some fun today!

We are Complete

Sharing this writing from Ernest Holmes:
If God is Allness, then there is no otherness. All anxiety about our affairs today or tomorrow indicates, then, unbelief. The ancient sages knew that perfected individuals find that they already have everything within themselves, after which they discover the same in others. This corresponds to the teaching of Jesus that the blind cannot lead the blind. We must know the truth about ourselves before we can know it about others. The truth about us is that we bear the image of God and, therefore, are capable of expressing our lives perfectly and completely.
Have a great weekend!
