Escape and Release Your Gifts!

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on June 8, 2009

Please don’t be so hard on yourself, others aren’t (at least people that really matter)!

Most of us struggle with self-consciousness issues. We can’t let that stop us!

I could name several people (who aren’t so nice) that are successful and put themselves out there all the time on TV and film. And then there are really nice people who give uplifting information and try to help (aka Oprah, if that end of the spectrum helps).

Those who know us know what we look like and still like or love us for the people we ARE!

Look at everyone around you that speaks well of you. bending over backwards to do so at times.  There is a large positive ripple effect there, why not be the stone that causes the ripple.

If all anyone cared about was what a person looked like then yikes, we’d all be like Hollywood…ick…what a depressing world that would be.  Picking each other apart instead of building each other up or working together.

Focus and capitalize on your strengths and forget about (what you perceive as) weaknesses…everyone wins that way! Why? You win and the people around you win because you share with them your gifts instead of coddling them in self-consciousness.

Sending love and good thoughts, Debi

Who really has the POWER?

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on December 15, 2007

Is it you or the person who has your ear? 

Is it the people who make the money or the people who have the money you make?

The season of thankfulness

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on November 23, 2007

It is a time for thankfulness said out loud instead of silent prayer. 

I’m thankful for my family, friends and love. 

I’m thankful for health and happiness. 

I’m thankful for a roof over my head, clothes on my back and food to sustain me and my loved ones. 

I’m thankful for hot and cold running water that comes instantaneously into a warm home and electricity. 

I’m thankful that there are people who service my house by taking trash to the dump or recycle for us. 

I’m thankful that I live in a relatively safe location with relatively quiet neighbors. 

I am thankful for transportation systems, freedom of movement and the technology that took us to the moon and made so much of our modern life possible.

I’m thankful that I know to be thankful and I know I’m here and get to enjoy this wonderful life.
