Although you may not realize it, every day you go to war.

Life is a constant battle

Between emotions and reason

Right and wrong

What you could do and what you should do

Going or staying

Spending or saving

Wanting or needing

Working out or staying idle

Yes or No.

Every morning you wake and prepare for battle, not to conquer your neighbor but instead to conquer yourself.

War is always messy and never easy.

It brings with it pain and hardship.

But it’s only in the struggle that the battle can ultimately be won.

To become the master of your emotions, or allow your emotions to master you.

To be seduced by your passions and desires, or to have the ability to tame them.

To be driven by fear, or to conquer it.

Instead of trying to conquer the world, first try and conquer yourself.

Instead of preaching about goodness, be good and do good.

Instead of telling us the way, show us.

Because the battle line between good and evil runs through the heart of every man.

Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
