We All Face Challenges but Some of Us Are Finding Our Fire: A Message on Perseverance (Soul. Musings. 02/07/17)

Irish poet and novelist Oscar Wilde so accurately said some time ago, “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

Everyone you meet, whether they admit it or not, is fighting a very difficult battle, striving to overcome a challenge, problem, or hardship. While some of us choose to settle into the struggle and allow it to control us, others of us choose to dig in, deeper and deeper. Read more…

Accidents Don’t Happen (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 354)


“Down in their hearts, wise men know this truth: the only way to help yourself is to help others.”
— Elbert Hubbard

As human beings, we have a tendency to act as though our problems are the only problems in the world. We often make our issues much bigger than they really are simply because that is the only thing we can see at the present moment. When we are trapped in our own boxes of human self, we claw and scratch our way to hear only what we tell ourselves. And we miss out on all the insight and advice that could offer the solutions we need. Read more…

6 Approaches to Problem Solving (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 336)


“A sum can be put right: but only by going back till you find the error and working it afresh from that point, never by simply going on.”
— C.S. Lewis

We always look for the easy fix, that one single, simple little switch, change or stroke of luck that will completely erase, solve or reverse a problem. Very few things work like this in life, unfortunately. In fact, nothing worthwhile works this way. Problems are meant to be solved and sometimes the solution is one hundred small steps at a time in the right direction. The first step to solving a problem is to pay attention to how we view the problem to begin with and from there we can spend our time, energy, resources, and ability to crafting a good solution, implementing it, and waiting for both lessons and good results.

Rock the Bottom When You Fall (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 317)


“Every problem has a gift for you in its hands.”
— Richard Bach

Every once in a while, we will find ourselves at the bottom. At the bottom of our careers. At the bottom of our education. At the bottom of our hopes. At the bottom of our experiences. At the bottom of our lives. In any situation, being at the bottom is never a good feeling, but it could be one of the best things we ever go through. Read more…

At Rock Bottom? Remember 3 Things (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 265)


“The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.”
— Moliere

I wish I could tell you that everybody who hits rock bottom survives. But you have been around too long and probably seen too much to believe that. Many people don’t make it ever up out of the pit because they feel all is hopeless and lost. But some people do. They find themselves in a situation that is unpleasant or uncomfortable, and they know deep down inside that this is not the way they were meant to live or how they imagine things should be. So they do things and tell themselves things to start the climb from rock bottom to the top. Read more…

Share the Struggle (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 255)


“We only have what we give.”
— Isabel Allende

Tragedy has a way of playing both sides of the same coin. On one side, it causes us to feel infinite grief, unbearable heartache, and crushing pain. But on the other side, it forces us to do something about what we are feeling. It weakens us and gives us strength at the same time. This is why we find beauty rising from ashes and new purpose coming forth out of pain. Everyone has a story of some kind that forms the foundation for what they do in life. Read more…
