Momentum Through Prayer

Developing your prayer life empowers you. When we do we are strengthened lifting our minds, hearts and spirits. So Saturday I urged you to take a prayerful intercession. Asking the Lord to help reveal your life’s purpose, noting it would  be healing, calming, strengthening, building, growing and most of all “Becoming”. I asked you toContinue reading “Momentum Through Prayer”

Commitments v. Covenants

Nearly two weeks ago I asked for your input. I told you that coming soon,we would be undertaking a discussion about commitments. But wait,… there’s more. What I didn’t tell you was I was having a bit of a quandary myself about commitments, covenants, the differences between the two, and whether or not my standardsContinue reading “Commitments v. Covenants”

Meekly Forbearant

Do you ever just get a word stuck in your head? It seems to just pop in there, from out of nowhere and then won’t leave you alone? If it has happened to you, then you can empathize with the feeling that it can be quite maddening. Bouncing around the left brain, right brain, tipContinue reading “Meekly Forbearant”

Feeling Affirmed

Are you “feeling” it? You should be as we begin day four of our intensive immersion into affirming ourselves, your emotions definitely need to be a part of the process.  Reviewing a bit, you should recall our discussions on: So How Do We Create Positive Affirmations? Good question. I’m so glad you asked. Here areContinue reading “Feeling Affirmed”

Suddenly Becoming Expectantly Now

Quicker than I expected and sooner rather than later, it happened again. Life is less about what happens to you, and more centered upon how you choose to respond to it.” My day is certainty, “Becoming” other than expected, anticipated and a far cry from what I had planned.  Still remaining level headed, thoughtful andContinue reading “Suddenly Becoming Expectantly Now”

Today We Affirm

A new day, a new post about your “Becoming”. Also today a new step. Affirming ourselves. The process of not only declaring and supporting ourselves, but also how we’ll arrive at creating our own specific affirmations to strengthen us along our daily paths.  So let’s start with the shared definitions. We’ll begin with the noun,Continue reading “Today We Affirm”

Suddenly Becoming… Now!

The start to this week has certainly been an interesting one for discussion. The unexpected delays, obstacles, circumstances, plus related adjustments in our daily lives juxtaposed with the concepts of expectancy, quickly, soon and now. So it is no coincidence that they work well to bring us to today’s topic. (Especially since I believe thereContinue reading “Suddenly Becoming… Now!”

Commitments? Covenants? Both or Neither?

A day of questions for you. I’ll begin to explain why as you continue, but first I need to ask: How do you define commitments? Do you honor your commitments? Why or why not? Do you expect others to honor their commitments? Can you define for us what a covenant is? What is the differenceContinue reading “Commitments? Covenants? Both or Neither?”

Rights and Responsibilities Vol. 1

So you get that there is a whole lot here and there will be discussions well beyond this moment concerning these integral aspects of living, right?  This week we have been speaking about rights. Our rights. My rights, your rights and the right to those rights without infringing upon the rights of others.  Now onContinue reading “Rights and Responsibilities Vol. 1”

Uncommon

Transitioning into this new month, I’ve shared some thoughts on how the coming days can be approached and lived differently. By exploring quite diverse ways from how we may have accepted them to be in the past or believed we had to compromise or settle for.  In “My Declaration of Independence”, yesterday I pointed toContinue reading “Uncommon”

My Declaration of Independence

When last we spoke, it was a discussion of the individual ways you can realize your own Transformative Transition. Noting it will vary greatly, as no two people are alike, nor are we created to be the same. Embracing our differences and affording each other the compassion, dignity and respect which we are due ourselvesContinue reading “My Declaration of Independence”

Transformative Transition

Are you ready? We’ve reached another point of change along our shared journey here at Becoming Today. Not only around us, but also a time when I believe we’ll all notice some of these decidedly different differences taking effect within us.  As the calendar will mark the start of a new month, tomorrow, we alsoContinue reading “Transformative Transition”

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”

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”

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”

“Becoming”: The Waiting Game…

Ohhh how I dislike that expression! The waiting game!!! It even makes me see red.  Waiting is a significant aspect in our growth, development and life itself. No matter what Milton Bradley wanted us to believe or the falsehood that Hasbro perpetuates to this day… life is NOT a game. To treat it as suchContinue reading ““Becoming”: The Waiting Game…”
