  1. How hard can it be? What kind of question is that? Depending on the definition of the word “It”, I would guess the answers will vary. The subject today is in the area of communication. In this case it is in the form of the written word. Capturing a thought in a moment in time, a snap shot of feelings and emotions, that somehow can tell others where you are. Have you thought about that reality? The words written can allow someone else to understand what you may be thinking, experiencing, or your thoughts concerning a question that may be on your mind. How hard is that to accomplish? At this moment I am experimenting with laying down and typing while flat on my back. I don’t recommend it, for it is much easier to sit up while typing or writing, as one might expect. My point is that even if it is difficult, it is possible. The cool thing is we can take just a few minutes and write to someone, or just share our thoughts. We may never know what impact we have on someone else’s life just by sharing our gift of communication. Are you willing? The question is how hard can it be?
  2. Six minutes to count down, and what shall we do? I am seriously thinking it would be a great idea to change my plans for the rest of the year. What is the count down? It depends! That is always a great answer in the world of psychology. The count down can be something as simple as a time frame. In this case, I have choosen to see what might come to surface if I just began to write for the next six minutes. Now as the clock continues to move, I am thinking about what might be a word of wisdom I can leave within the next four minutes. Breathe, yes, that is it. Remember to breathe…. How are you breathing right now? Shallow, deep, consistent? We all need to breathe to stay alive on this planet, yet things seem to be getting so intense at times, I think we may forget to slow down, take a deep breath and think about what is going on. In the next two minutes I can say, it is great to be alive. No matter what the challenge is that you or I may face, we have hope and we have help when we decide to reach out and ask for it. Truly we are not alone, God is always ever present, and there are many who are also willing to listen, to care and to share. Our part is to be able to reach out and do the same. For now, I am here, taking this moment to remind anyone who may be listening, we are in this together. The time has arrived, or put it another way, the time has passed, what do you think?
  3. Making a commitment without really thinking about the consequences is not a good idea. Perhaps you might think that is an obvious statement. Yet how many times do we actually do that? To keep this short and to the point, I will ask another question. Do you ever wonder, “What was I thinking”?
