Weekend Wisdom: Self-Beliefs

May you realize the truth in today’s quote from my friend Jeff Nischwitz.  When I read it earlier this week I knew it had to use it for today’s “Weekend Wisdom.” It applies to the grief recovery process in addition to every other area of life.

Most of what is blocking your path are self-beliefs that you are holding onto. It’s time to let it go.

Letting go of your negative self-beliefs during grief is a slow and painful process but you must do it to experience joy again.

Here’s to letting go!

Bye, Bye To My Slideshow Page

As some of you know, I create slideshows by setting my pictures to music. I do this using the Slidecast feature on the website SlideShare.  However it is tricky at times as their syncing tool is not as easy to use as it could be. Then when I upload a completed Slideshow to the blog, the music is off by a few seconds, thus defeating all the time spent getting the pictures and music synced.

The other day I received an email from SlideShare stating the ability to add music to presentations is going away. February 28th will be the last day I can create a Slideshow. On April 30th, all Slideshows will be converted to non-musical presentations.

I will miss my favorite – the “Finger-Snapping Slideshow”, which made my friend Jeff Nichwitz’s day. The pictures were taken a few years ago on  the first beautiful day we had several weeks of rain.  With out the snappy music they will be just a nice set of pictures and not put anyone in a be-boppin’ mood.

Oh well, that’s life. It changes and we must change with it. 

So hop on over to “Welcome To The (Slide) Show! page and enjoy the musical presentations before I delete the page.

Quotes To Help You “Achieve Anything”

When I decided to do “40 Days of Joy” for this year, I emailed my friends Katherine, Jennifer and Jeff for quotes either said by them or other that I could use in blog posts.  Hopefully the posts would speak to my readers, especially those grieving or going through another of life’s nasty events.

Here are the responses I received.  Hopefully you will be able to use one of these quotes as inspiration to “Achieve Anything“* in 2014.

Katherine’s Quote

“You will survive if you set a vision of what you want and do not want in your life.”

Katherine Miracle

Not only is it necessary to define what you want, but define what you do not want out of life.

Do you want to survive your grief journey, unemployment or other nasty life event? What does your  life look like once you survive that  journey? How will you know when you’ve reached the end of your journey?

A Dreamy Quote

Jennifer sent me this quote:

“What would you dare to dream if you knew you wouldn’t fail?”

Brian Tracy

The sky is the limit with this quote. Anything you dream for 2014 will be a success. What is it? What actions will you take to bring your idea to life?

Jeff’s Quote

Jeff emailed me this quote as one currently speaking to him. It is a powerful quote with a lot of truth behind it.

“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”

Ferdinand Foch

This quote is my favorite of the three. Why –

A soul on fire is necessary to bring the other two quotes to life.
