This is SO True!

By Coach Phatty, published on Jun 18, 2014

There comes a time in your life,

When you walk away from

all the drama in your life and the people who create it.

You surround yourself with

people who make you laugh.

Forget the bad, and FOCUS ON THE GOOD.

Love the people who treat you right,

Pray for the ones who don’t.

Life is too short to be ANYTHING BUT HAPPY.

Falling down is a part of life,

Getting back up is living.

~ Jose N. Harris

Thankful People Are Happy People

By Coach Phatty, published on Jun 12, 2013

I was reading through a bunch of stories the other day and I came across a story (written by Greg Carr) that stated that he had read a news story once of a woman who was getting ready to jump off a 44 story building in New York City.

Witnesses said that she did not look like the type of person who would do such a thing. She was very distinguished and well dressed. All the attempts made by the police to get the woman off the ledge had failed. One of the officers asked if he could call his pastor in to see if he could help. When the pastor arrived, he asked permission... (more)

Of Thorns and Roses

By melanie jean juneau, published on Feb 23, 2013

..."Is the glass half full or half empty" really does matter. It is amazing how I can turn my misery switch on and off and my joy button on and off. It really does matter how I view the world. It is a matter of taking a step back and looking at the big picture.

Do I choose to squint and focus on the thorns or do I step back and see the beauty of the entire bush. Do I focus on every miserable detail that goes wrong in my life or do I step back and thank God for everything that is right with it.

I am alive, healthy, not living on the street. I have a computer, two hands with... (more)

D.C. Auto Show Gets Volt of Energy

By Josh Marks, published on Feb 15, 2011

...their competitors. Heck, even Cadillac was showing off a Hybrid version of the Escalade.

Of course, GM was happily showing off their new clean, green Michigan machine -- the plug-in hybrid electric Chevy Volt. And not to be left out, Ford was grinning over its all-electric Ford Focus. Downstairs Nissan was beaming over its 100 miles-to-a-charge, zero tailpipe emissions Nissan Leaf. And not to be outdone, Toyota was offering test drives of its popular Prius brand, which started the whole hybrid craze.

I took a spin around the Washington Convention Center neighborhood... (more)

Sky for all, stars for some.

By SZU, published on Nov 1, 2010

Just close your eyes

And think of me,

as a little star

out of your reach,

now open your eyes

Say, what'd you see?

Just one star,

Or a galaxy?

Life's like this...

a distant sky in bliss,

but up. Too far.

If you lose your focus,

you lose your star.
