Your Whole Future

your whole future lies in the palm of your hand. what's it going to be? Mercia Tapping

Your whole future still lies ahead of you.

I believe very passionately that we have a great deal of influence on the outcome of our lives and our own eventual happiness.

I am not talking about the miserable diseases that can be inflicted on us or our loved ones. Those are too often just the result of pulling the wrong card from the deck.

No, this is more taking responsibility for your thoughts and subsequent behavior, as the choices you take can take you down very different roads.

It is YOUR life. What do YOU want to do with it?

Life is Just A Basket Of Cherries

life is just a basket of cherries... if you learn to spit out the pits.  Mercia Tapping

Life can be as sweet as cherries or it can be the pits.

I for one can verify, that outside my house each week lies a small ” pit mountain”, waiting to be hauled off to the trash. I keep the good stuff and trash the rest.

It is the only way to live life and not wallow in the pits, which I grant you is tempting to do at times.

So today, spit out those pits and enjoy the sweetness of what is left behind.

calling all warriors against cancer. together we will slay the beast. Mercia Tapping
Cancer first took my husband and then I had to fight the beast myself.

It has completely changed my life in ways I would not have chosen.

I simply hate the beast.

Thrive, Not Just Survive

Filed in Courage, Health, Inspirational, Life, Love by on August 25, 2015

thrive. not just survive. just surviving is no way to live life. Mercia Tapping

Thrive don’t just survive.

I believe in this very passionately. I know there are periods of one’s life that due to of unwelcome or painful events, that all you can do is hold on, taking it one step at a time and just survive.

I certainly have had many of those days. But I have never lost the hope that thriving on life lies on the other side, which makes survival worthwhile.

Thriving to me above all else means both giving and receiving love in abundance, as well as enjoying good health. In addition, there are a myriad of things in life which give me great joy, the list is endless.

I might say that after a certain base level of financial security has been reached, what gives me joy and has me thrive, has far more to do with experiences than the acquisition of more stuff.

Thriving means very different things to each of us, and I invite you to think about what thriving means to you. Then you can move with confidence towards it.

You Can Never Take Hurtful Words Back

Filed in Inspirational, Life by on August 24, 2015

you can never take hurtful words back, so just don't say them. Mercia Tapping

Words can hurt others badly.

A long time ago, my wise husband, now deceased, said as he was talking about his work as a psychologist, that if we cannot think of something nice to say to someone then just don’t say it.

He was right. Acrimonious words have a bad smelling tail, which always hang in the air. A long time ago, I realized that words can hurt and cause pain, and while you can apologize, you can never take them back.

So I have made a life long habit to bite my tongue, and think it think it over carefully before speaking. Countless times, I am grateful that I did, since it is not my intention to cause pain in anyone’s life.

Have I ever lost my temper? Of course I have, but have never felt proud afterwards. So before you lash out, think twice, is that what you really want to do?

In my youth, I worked for a few months, for a young couple who had recently had a baby and I never noticed a cross word happening between them. It made a deep impression on me. It had never occurred to me that people could be married and not snipe or criticize each other. I observed their relationship with amazement, and resolved that when I grew up that is what I wanted and would aspire to be in my behavior.

This couple will never know what a significant and long lasting impression they made on me.

Think about the power of your words this week. They can bring great pain but also great joy. And the power of your words can last for a lifetime in another. It is your choice. What will be the legacy of your words?

It feels like a very large heavy door is closed to us and it doesn’t move. What is there to do?
