Never make mistakes, and everything will be perfect. Or will it be?

How would you know the difference between what works and what does not work?

Mistakes are part of the learning process. They teach us what not to do. They also give us incentive to do better.

Mistakes lead us to growth and progress.

It is not that we should not make mistakes. It is that we should not let them hold us back.


There are many thoughts and theories about the purpose of life. But the main purpose of life is simply to live.

Beyond that, you create your own purpose in the world. If you do not know what your purpose is, it is because you do not know what you want.

If you do not know what you want, it is because you are hesitant to make a choice.

It is your choice to have a specific purpose in life.

Relapse prevention is not just for addicts. Preventive measures apply to all aspects of life.

Anyone who wants to make changes that lead to self-improvements, has to be patient with the process.

Changes in habit take time and effort. Expect to be uncertain and make mistakes.

There is no perfect road to recovery or transformation. But you can be prepared for the journey.

Boundaries are not the same as barriers. A boundary is a limit or a personal space. A barrier is a defense or a form of resistance.

Personal boundaries are a vital part of mental and physical health. But barriers can prevent us from having optimum mental and physical health.

Know what your limits are and know what your resistances are. When you are aware of the difference between the two, you have more balance in your life.

By building your boundaries and overcoming your barriers, you will achieve more life success.

The position you are in right now is the starting point for the next position.

So where are you headed? As you leave one situation, what is the next one you are entering?

On your journey through the events of life, certain issues keep turning up over and over again. Like a pop song you cannot get out of your head.

The default setting is to complain about it and put the blame on others. But the program is yours. What are you doing with it?

When your writing lacks proper punctuation and/or punctuation placement meanings get lost and confusion flourishes

Your reader does not know where to pause end or transition

If you want to be understood then use commas colons semicolons question marks etcetera

And never miss your period

Of course there is a difference between what you need and what you want. In essence, we do not really need much. Just healthy food, water, and shelter.

But to be human is to want. More than anything we want to be happy, to feel a sense of inner peace.

Many people pursue what they think they want in an effort to achieve happiness. However, this is often an exercise in futility.

It is good to want, but make sure that you want the right things.
