What are you building?

I'm like most men--I enjoy finding some project to do around our farm so I can go to the hardware store and look at the power tools and other important things I need. One time I was building a wooden fence with a couple of gates. Of course that meant a trip to the store to look at hinges and latches.

Now I'm by no means an expert on hinges which means I was forced to do what most of us men dread doing--ask for help. The associate made it easy on me though. He offered. I figured it was less disgraceful that way.

So I tell him what I'm doing, give him the dimensions of the gate, and pick up a hefty size set of hinges and say, "I guess I need something this big."

"Oh no sir, Dr. Joey," he says. "You can use something much smaller than that. Small hinges swing big doors."

That's true about making a positive life, too. You probably think you have to do something huge during the holidays to be positive. Not really. Just change a small habit despite your hectic schedule and watch as your life swings better.

Listen to your life for what that small habit might be and make a positive life.

What ghosts do you fear?

    One of the things I remember from trick-or-treating as a child at Halloween is that my younger brother was scared to death of ghosts.  Or, actually other kids dressed as ghosts.

    He and I would be walking from one neighbor’s house to another and all of a sudden, he would scream and start crying.  I would look around and there was a kid dressed as a ghost.  I would hug him until “the ghost” walked on by.

    He was afraid of ghosts not because they were ghosts but because they were dressed in all white.  You see when he was a baby and later as a preschooler, he had surgery a couple of times.  All of the OR people wore white as did the other nurses and doctors.  He associated their white dress and the white sheets of “the ghosts” with pain.

    It’s easy for us to associate the ghosts of previous pain with present opportunities.  We can choose to fear these moments because of the past.

    Make a positive life today by redefining your reality.  Look for the positive and you’ll see it as you make a positive life in this negative world.
