Monday, 23 March 2015 14:38
Sometimes being around family and loved ones can do wonders for your spirit! I recently had the opportunity to spend time with my family who came in to celebrate my son's birthday and we had an incredible time!

This is what my family does for me.
In a couple of weeks, spring will be upon us and the weather will begin to change. For those of us in the Twin Cities, spring is a reminder that things will change for the better. It is within this hope that we are able to deal with life's up's and down's. Some look for change to take place outside of them like the change in weather. The truth is that real change takes place within us. If nothing outside of you ever changes, if you change for the better inwardly, your live will be better.

Have you ever felt like you were working so hard and doing all the right things in your life to be a success, but nothing seems to be going as you planned? Are you at a point where you think that maybe you are working so hard and maybe it's time you gave up on this goal because nothing is happening fast enough for you? Remember just because you don't see the end result right away, doesn't mean you haven't made any progress. Achieving any goal takes lots of focus and can take a long period of time. (Depending on the goal.) But the key is to never give up because you never know how close you are to completing anything if you give up before you completed it.
