7 Clear Signs You Need To Take a Break (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 330)


“Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.”
— Ovid

If you have ever been through moments in your life here you felt like you just need a good long break, you likely were feeling to much stress due to a number of factors that affected your physical, emotional, and mental health. You probably didn’t feel like yourself, running on fumes or feeling like an empty shell. You may have thought to yourself that you need to do something about this stress before it kills you.

Embrace Every Opportunity (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 247)

Embrace Every Opportunity

Ephesians 5:16 (NLT)
Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.

Since the time we were born, each and every one of us had a dream. For some, that dream may have changed as we got older. For others, it never changes, it only seems to get more attractive. Ambitions and dreams should be a big part of all of our lives. Without the ability to dream, we are more likely to lose hope and miss out on the goodness and beauty of life. Read more…

Why You Should Write Down Your Achievements (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 223)

Why You Should Write Down Your Achievements

“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.”
— Paulo Coelho

We can often focus too much on the negative parts of life that we fail to remember how good life really is. Many times, we allow our failures and setbacks to overshadow our achievements and successes. When this happens, it is easier for depression to set in and for us to feel as though we are not fulfilling the responsibility of our place in the world. Read more…

Dreaming Possible (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 25)

Dreaming Possible

“Our dream, the desire that is in our soul, did not come out of nowhere. Someone placed it there. And that Someone, who is pure love and wants only our happiness, did so only because he also gave us the tools to realise our dreams and our desires.”
— Paulo Coelho

We are all capable of doing so much, yet very often, we end up doing so little. There is no guarantee that we will succeed at anything. There is a guarantee that we never have a chance of succeeding if we do not try. We are able to dream not for the sake of dreaming. We are able to dream because possibility lies beyond our dreams. We dream not because we need something but because we already have everything we need.

Can You Stand Firm? (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 5)

Can You Stand Firm

Luke 21:19 (NLT)
By standing firm, you will win your souls.

Patience is one of the most hated, yet one of the most needed qualities in our lives. Very simply, we hate to wait. Rarely do we run into another individual to whom patience comes easy. It’s not just a cliched phrase, however, “good things really do come to those who wait”, especially those who wait for God, on God, and in God.

The Possible Dream

The Possible Dream

It never ceases to amaze me how so many people give up on their dreams prematurely. When a little trouble or hardship comes into their lives, they forget about what they really want to do in life. They forget about who they really are and throw away talent and purpose. They allow their dreams to become so small in light of their present circumstance. Dreams often go unfulfilled because people let them die. But no dream is really ever wasted. Good dreams are meant to come to pass, and most all of them do, sometimes in the most unexpected and unlikely ways. Read more…
