Becoming A Giver

This week we’ve established that at times we all need help. Acknowledging it can be difficult to ask for help, we outlined steps to allow ourselves to ask for help. Realizing that  receiving is part of life,that it has nothing to do with worthiness, we acknowledge that in learning how to accept help we areContinue reading “Becoming A Giver”

Accepting Help

If by no other means than just simply listening to music we should all be able to comprehend that there is not one person who can go through life without needing help at one time or another, and then again. Submitted for your consideration some song lyrics about help…. “Oh, I get by with aContinue reading “Accepting Help”

Asking For Help

Help is something that at more than one time or another we all need. However  for many, including myself, it’s been difficult if not impossible to ask for. Why is that? Glad you asked because Asking for Help is the focus of our latest conversation here on Becoming Today. Yesterday I shared a deep, intenselyContinue reading “Asking For Help”

Why Becoming Became My Way

Starting from a place of total transparency and absolute honesty, this is a difficult conversation for me. Usually putting words on a page or filling a screen with idioms, expressions and phrases is something that flows easily for me. Part of my God-given talents  to share, nurture, express and communicate. However this one is different.Continue reading “Why Becoming Became My Way”

The Essence of Becoming

Just one word, that’s all it took. That one word? “Becoming” That’s what I declared this year, this new project and my renewed direction in life to be all about. So what exactly do I mean by “Becoming”? Glad you asked…. To begin with, “Becoming”is a  word and words do have meanings. So if usedContinue reading “The Essence of Becoming”

Respecting Compassion Dignity and Integrity

Before we begin, 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-given value. We are designed to liveContinue reading “Respecting Compassion Dignity and Integrity”

Integrity Is Integral

Is it Friday already? This year of 20/20+1 continues to fly by and I hope you are finding your personal progress along our shared path quickening as well. With a busy weekend ahead for many, as we celebrate both Father’s Day and the official start of Summer on Sunday, the festivities and stress relieving distractionsContinue reading “Integrity Is Integral”

Respect Yourself As You Would Others

On this edition of Becoming Today we are exploring another element that is highly subjective, oft demanded and far too often not given. But remember that in order to receive R-E-S-PE-C-T you must give of it freely. And that includes first giving it to yourself. Our focus over the past several days has been onContinue reading “Respect Yourself As You Would Others”

Dignity Defined and Shared

As we continue along our combined journey of Becoming Today we are focusing on three elements that all people desire and deserve. In case you missed it yesterday, we discussed  the first step in my acronym of C.D.R. which stands for: Compassion Dignity Respect All are elements of common need and desire. It doesn’t matterContinue reading “Dignity Defined and Shared”

C.D.R. Are You Receiving It?

I hope each and everyone one of you enjoyed a refreshing, safe weekend and now with the new week here, we’ll embark upon a renewal of our discussion along this shared journey.  On this edition of Becoming Today we’ll discuss three things I believe every person on this planet not only wants but truly deserves. Continue reading “C.D.R. Are You Receiving It?”

Ramblings, Reflections and Referrals

I don’t know about you but around here at Becoming Today’s headquarters,things have really been heating up. Both literally and metaphorically.  That has me trying to beat the heat by offering some random thoughts, recalling some more Becoming topics and offering some suggestions for your pre-Summer reading and research. Still more than a week tillContinue reading “Ramblings, Reflections and Referrals”

Refreshing Renewed Remarks

On this edition of “Becoming Today” we’ll take a look back at our discussions from throughout the past week, a review and summary for some and if this is your first time here, welcome. So let’s expand our journey today to walk through the words we are choosing to live by. Do you ever justContinue reading “Refreshing Renewed Remarks”

Living Up To Your Declarations

Words, their meaning and importance have been central to our conversations this week on Becoming Today. Yesterday we talked a bit about better expressing ourselves and our word choices and now we’ll examine how to further strengthen the message you are articulating, and that will also include turning those utterances into actions. Yesterday I mentionedContinue reading “Living Up To Your Declarations”

Communicating Confidently

Our focus on idioms and the conveyance of these utterances and expressions  is remaining our focus of renewal this week. As I previously declared June as the month of renewal, here at Becoming Today, refreshing our words and the tones that accompany them is certainly refreshing. As we discussed yesterday, for me, this project isContinue reading “Communicating Confidently”
