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”

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”

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!”

Decisions, Decisions, well maybe….

Decisions are something that apparently more than a few people have trouble with. As I often have shared, I belong to the schools of thought that teach,…. What happens when you make a decision? Either it works. Or it doesn’t Makes perfect sense to me, but even here in my own household we have beenContinue reading “Decisions, Decisions, well maybe….”

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”

Acceptance Required

On this edition of Becoming Today, what I’m asking is for you to accept yourself. Sounds simple, right?  Well just maybe it’s one of those things that sounds easier than they really are.  Nevertheless, accepting ourselves is an integral part of “Becoming”.   Accepting our strengths rather than empowering our perceived weaknesses, accepting our unlimited potentialContinue reading “Acceptance Required”

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”

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”
