Always Dreaming of the Content of Our Character

Today with certain exceptions, in America we pause to remember a man who was definitely a testament to “Becoming.” Overcoming struggles not only of his own, but also along with millions of other people. His life on this plain ending far too soon, we pause from our regular format to remember and reflect on theContinue reading “Always Dreaming of the Content of Our Character”

Responsibly Seeking Kindness, Mercy and Forgiveness with Integrity

Okay I realize it seems like a long title today, however with just 8 words comprising 66 characters we have summed up the busy week that was here at “Becoming Today”. Let’s review the conversations we had  along our shared path from the past few days. Beginning with You Have The Right To Be Responsible.Continue reading “Responsibly Seeking Kindness, Mercy and Forgiveness with Integrity”

Our Path of Forgiveness

Continuing along the shared path we call, “Becoming Today”, our journey has come to a fork. We must decide, choose wisely and then take action on forgiving both others and ourselves. Yesterday we shared how mercy and compassion are often braided together. Mercy is a gift given to one who is suffering by someone whoseContinue reading “Our Path of Forgiveness”

Mercy Is Free

Accepting that we can embrace love as perhaps the greatest of all emotions, feelings, expressions, states, attitudes and basis for our personal development on our shared path of “Becoming Today”, I’m encouraging you to seek to express and accept more love in your life.  This can be accomplished by taking care of yourself.  Self careContinue reading “Mercy Is Free”

Seeking Kindness

Before we begin, on this edition of “Becoming Today”, I really want to take a moment and share a reminder for you to be kind to yourself. Kindness is an expression of admiration for our fellow human beings. That we all matter and truly have worth. All of our lives have an intrinsic, inalienable God-givenContinue reading “Seeking Kindness”

Integrating Integrity

On this edition of Becoming Today, as the headline suggests our conversation will focus on a virtuous, moral and ethical aspect of our lives that is not-optional. Nothing like a little light reading, right? Integrity.  What is it? Why is it so important?  How do we ensure we are living with it?  Where to begin?Continue reading “Integrating Integrity”

You Have The Right To Be Responsible

We often hear many speaking about rights. Our rights. My rights, your rights and the right to those rights without infringing upon the rights of others.  Now on Becoming Today, we’ll review and expand upon these inherent, inalienable, irrevocable rights and also the responsibilities we must undertake and share in order to preserve them. IContinue reading “You Have The Right To Be Responsible”

Refreshing +2

This week has involved  a lot of renewing, refreshing, recommitting and now it’s time for some reviewing. Both on this edition of “Becoming Today”, and in our lives. How has this first week of “+2” fared for each of us? How are we doing along both our shared paths and our individual goals? Earlier thisContinue reading “Refreshing +2”

Seasonal Renewal

As I write this, it is a slow paced, quiet tranquil morning. With a cold front bearing down upon us, rather than the day heating up, as the sun rises- temperatures are dropping and will continue to fall. Old man Winter is indeed reminding us of his presence, and purpose. While this season is aContinue reading “Seasonal Renewal”

Looking Glass Reflections

Let’s take a look in the mirror and ask ourselves some questions. How are we, if we are advancing in our own lives.? Allow your answers to reflect upon you and then we can discuss how we can continue our forward focus of “Becoming Today” . Have you taken steps to  Free Yourself? We spoke aboutContinue reading “Looking Glass Reflections”

Uneasy Feeling

As we’ve begun this new year I shared that as a common thread in our conversations over the coming 12 months, I’m raising the banner of “Resurrecting Positivity”.   And yet on this edition of “Becoming Today” I have an Uneasy Feeling. One I need your help with. For several days I have felt this way.Continue reading “Uneasy Feeling”

Release To Renew

I hope you enjoyed a happy and safe weekend. As we begin this first week of the new year of “+2″, no doubt much of what you’ve been reading or hearing about has been focused on renewing, refreshing or restarting. All very admirable topics, however on this edition of “Becoming Today”, we’ll pause to lookContinue reading “Release To Renew”

Resurrect Positivity

As we have officially entered the  year of “+2”, I hope it is already starting on a positive note for you. As a common thread in our conversations over the coming 12 months, I’m feeling called to raise the banner of “Resurrecting Positivity”.  If anything it seems that the negative has become the norm andContinue reading “Resurrect Positivity”

Plus Too

Two words and plus several meanings too. As we prepare to wrap up this year, we’ll look back at the year that was and preview what’s ahead here on “Becoming Today”.  What a year it was. For many another of nothing like they ever expected. I know it was for me. Despite a few unforeseenContinue reading “Plus Too”

Is It Time?

It happens to everyone. There are times along our journey where we simply do not see movement. We may feel stuck, but we are being held in place, so we can be better prepared for our next step, our next realization. Here at “Becoming Today”  being held in place is all about timing. And keepingContinue reading “Is It Time?”

Tenaciously Energized

Yesterday in our discussion of  what it means to act with “Tenacity on Purpose”,  I shared a definition and posed some questions for you. On this edition of “Becoming Today”, so you don’t miss out, I’ll ask them again allowing you to reflect upon them, while I answer a question I get asked quite aContinue reading “Tenaciously Energized”

Tenacity On Purpose

I’ll admit this one has taken me a while to pull together. I first became inspired by the topic just before Thanksgiving and then sat down no fewer than eight times to put it together.  So I can testify this is a very recent lesson I’ve been called to explore, that I’ll share with youContinue reading “Tenacity On Purpose”
