Strength as the Cornerstone to Joy!

Take a moment to look at and reflect on the numerous definitions for "Strong" listed below. Every one of them exudes a feeling of positive healing, control, and spirit! Who would not choose any one of these definitions to describe how they want to feel in any given situation?

My favorite is #13 on the list:

Able to resist strain, force, wear, etc.: strong walls; strong cloth.

How perfectly does this definition describe the battles, challenges, and obstacles we confront daily in our lives?

What is more threatening to us than "Strain" -- strain of relationships, career, children, parents, friends? Than "Force" - forces against us in our jobs, families, friends! and "Wear" - life can certainly wear all of us down in every way - BUT ONLY IF we allow it to do so!

This definition of "STRONG" typifies what we must gather within ourselves in the face of adversity and how we must strive to be during the trials of our busy and challenging days!

Strength is not necessarily about force or violence or attack, but about the ability to focus on the positive aspects of your life as well as the optimistic view of the good that is to come into our lives in the near future!
Strength comes from unwavering FAITH and BELIEF in what is in store for us on this journey of life and from our abilities to make Miracles occur for ourselves and for others!

Strength is the ability to NEVER ALLOW negative thoughts to "compound" in our minds, and our ability to withstand and overcome the onslaught of negative influences we all experience every single day!

Sure, times can get tough and it may appear that you are losing the battle day to day - but THIS is where you have to turn to your inner STRENGTH and BELIEVE that you can survive and thrive in whatever it is that you are battling!

This is where "Strain" and "Force" and "Wear" are met head on by US and turned back!!

The CHOICE is simple --- Strength or Perish -- and this choice is YOURS ALONE!


We all have paths we must walk and these paths are sometimes wrought with fear, unease, pain and suffering -- but the STRENGTH we develop in ourselves and the FAITH we build daily will surely carry us past these challenges to a life of Joy and Peace!

I built this site in the hope that it will help everyone in building that BELIEF, that FAITH, and that STRENGTH to allow you to lead the lives you dream of leading and show you that YOU CAN experience the JOY that comes from removing FEAR from your lives!

But you have to CHOOSE STRENGTH!!

This site will show you how to do this - DAY to DAY and WEEK to WEEK!

Stay Strong and Stay Tuned!!
