A new week begins and it, hopefully, propels us towards a desired future. No matter what happened over the last week and weekend we determine to forge ahead with tenacity. Have we mastered the art of putting our nerves in check? Well, for some it's so easy. Why? They control the "game" more than half the time. For others, individual resolutions have several outcome scenarios, because they lack the power to guarantee their execution.

Note that we are not talking about will-power here. We are talking about real power that renders a 'super hero' Dad/ Mom/husband/ wife at home a victim outside their homes. It is a scary world out there! However, knowing the essence of our existence could be the most empowering gift within us! As accomplished singer-songwriter Mariah Carey puts it, "...the hero lies in you". Yes; we own our success and failure to a great extent- depending on how much power we give a
way or give up because of a lack of full understanding of who we are as individuals and how we can use that to identify and join forces with those who walk a similar journey on a daily basis. If we choose journeys that are meant to be walked with others on our own we shall fail. Likewise, if we walk journeys we are meant to take solo with others, we shall fail.
"It's a long, road
When you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt
So, how do we come to this level of understanding? The time we spend brainstorming with ourselves (some call this meditation) and checking in with others will give us a better sense of direction as we start our day/week. Hope you have a great one!
