    Believing is the hardest part. I see those "other" people transforming their bodies, but do I really believe I can be like those "other" people and reach my goals? I'm trying hard to get there. Thank you!

    This was a great blog. I love when I get something out of a blog, and with this one I really took something home. Thank you. emoticon

    This made me wonder WHY we try so hard to hide the God-given feelings that we have.
God gave us feelings for we could feel happy and praise Him; so we could mourn and seek comfort from Him; so we could love each other and have a picture of heaven on earth.
But, in our fallen, broken world, we have turned all this around to "thinking" because WE think we know better than God.

I feel that you have brought up a great point, and I thank you that you had the heart to share it with us!!

thanks, Friend. You ROCK!! emoticon

    Spot on! As I listened to this blog, I tried "believing" instead of "feeling". Different mindset got different results. You are so right - believing is empowerment.

Good blog John!

    I loved your last comment. It made me laugh out loud!

Thank you, as always, for sharing your life with me, John. It makes me feel like "I'm not the only one"... lots of times. It is comforting.

Big hugs,

    Hmmmm...I'm really gonna have to chew on this one! So far, here's where I'm at: I always thought The Little Engine That Could was just a little off the mark! And how do I know? "I think I can" is a punchy battle cry I can easily get behind. But "I believe I can" --whoa. That makes me squirm with unease. And that's usually calling my attention to something for good reason.

Oh, looky that. I got to that by feeling it out, not thinking it out. emoticon

Another great one, John! Thanks as always for sharing your insight and making it a little easier for the rest of us to uncover those little nuggets of wisdom for ourselves.

    Hi John, I like your dark blue polo shirt, sorry if I start my comments aying something so silly. Second thing I want you to know, I was feeling totally disppointed with myself today i.e. seeing myself as a failure....and I guess your blog is helping me out of these self-destructive feelings.
Thanks emoticon
