THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “Line of Serenity”

Ava Thrower of Detroit, Michigan, says, “Every family should have a “line of serenity” running through it!  This book has excellent examples of how it was growing up in an African-American community in the 50’s and 60’s.  What is unique about this story is the author’s insight on how her parents were able to lovingly raise three daughters and four sons to be caring, calm, unselfish, intelligent, responsible, and positive-thinking adults.  The family pictures and recipes add a special touch to her family’s story.  (You’ll find yourself wanting to try out these recipes!)”

A Perspective on Life

We can make life better for ourselves!

What do you do when you’re hit with bad news?

There’s an old saying that can help to guide you:  “It’s not what happens to you; it’s how you choose to deal with it.”  The key word is “choose.”

Typically, your choices will include positive and negative options.  Always choose positive options because they have a better chance of attracting positive outcomes.  (Negative options will most likely attract negative outcomes.)

Life will always be filled with problems and challenges.  Learn to meet them head-on.  Don’t fret; don’t run.  Solve them; conquer them.

You are bigger than any problem or challenge that will ever come your way.

Remember that!

Also remember that:  No matter how good life is at the moment, it will change; and no matter how bad life is at the moment, it will change.

Sit tall in the saddle and ride it out!
