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”

Breathing Backwards

Catch your breath, and breathe in that headline again. Yes on this edition of Becoming Today, I’m expanding upon Breathing Backwards. Over the past few weeks, we’ve dealt with some heavy issues as much of this month has been focused on our responsibilities. So today I decided to exhale a bit and only half- heartedlyContinue reading “Breathing Backwards”

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”

Affirmative Action

This week we are focusing on the processing of affirming ourselves and taking these declarations to our next level of “Becoming”.  So as the title suggests affirmations are also about affirming action. It is an action word. A state we need to achieve in order to enable us to be propelled towards our dreams, desires,Continue reading “Affirmative Action”

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!”

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”

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”

It’s Not Selfish

As we progress together along this path of “Becoming”, I’ve mentioned the concept of Self-Care quite a bit. So today let’s explore what it is, what it is not and then offer some helpful and hopefully fun suggestions for you to embrace in your daily rituals. What is Self-Care? On the simplest level it isContinue reading “It’s Not Selfish”

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”
