Community Project Ideas

Here are a few ways in which we can make this project work. Let's share ideas. Anyone who has done something to help the community project can post here on how they did it.

Mother Teresa's profound words of wisdom will go on for ages, helping us all to deal with lifes difficult people, and challenges daily.


Love is All You Need "You can't love anyone if you don't love yourself"

This short story has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. It was told to me by a young priest. I am grateful I got to tell him how powerful his words have influenced my life.

You can never take back a hurtful word that you say to your wife. You can never take back some hasty thing that you say to your children. You can never take back a lie that destroys a person's life.

We put couples with incomes of $100 million a year on the covers of our magazines. The noncoms and officers who barely scrape by on military pay but stand on guard in Afghanistan and Iraq and on ships and in submarines and near the Arctic Circle are anonymous as they live and die.

Did it ever happen to you, when one thought leads to another and another, and another and your thinking spirals right out of control. Suddenly we're dealing with a total "mental train wreck" happening in our head.

Embrace Change

Think of change as a river, always flowing and moving things around. The river of life is constantly bringing you ideas, people, situations - each one is an opportunity to be enriched or to enrich others, and to learn.

Everyone needs to feel appreciated, needed, loved. Words of encouragement can make all the difference in life. Yet compliments, and words of love, are not so freely given, making life's journey a much arduous travel.

Live Life

Live it in the moment and enjoy every one of those moments.

One’s life style is a matter of perception for others.

Five Short Chapters on Change

You control your thoughts and actions. Although sometimes you get caught up in doing the same thing that causes you to be unhappy.  You need to take control, and exercise change in the pathway of your life. I always find when your thoughts are going astray tell yourself to go right, not left, just a reminder to yourself.

Living the same routine everyday, one day identical to the next tends to leave you feeling unhappy, and unfulfilled. Although you may want to, you feel that it's hard to make changes when you are used to doing things the same way everyday.

The greatest part of a persons day is the quiet moments he chooses to take for himself. Even if it's a few minutes a day, just to be alone with yourself in silence, helps to restore the peace that is so often taken away from you with the loudness of a busy day.

People know what is good in their heart, they want to be more giving and less self absorbed, but they just can't bring themselves to the point of changing. What I believe prevents them from being the person they want to be is being tangled up in the person they are. Today is the day, it's time to let go of what is preventing you from being your authentic self.

Two Wolves

“ My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all."

I just got one last thing, I urge all of you, all of you, to enjoy your life, the precious moments you have. To spend each day with some laughter and some thought, to get you're emotions going. To be enthusiastic every day and [as] Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Nothing great could be accomplished without enthusiasm" -- to keep your dreams alive in spite of problems whatever you have.

Make the best of your circumstances – no-one has everything and everyone has something of sorrow intermingled with the gladness of life; the trick is to make the laughter outweigh the tears

Get a life in which you are generous. Look around at the azaleas in the suburban neighborhood where you grew up; look at a full moon hanging silver in a black, black sky on a cold night. And realize that life is the best thing ever, and that you have no business taking it for granted.

The Precious Stone

Happiness comes from within. . .
