Life is stronger than death.

'Goodness is stronger than evil. Love is stronger than hate. Light is stronger than darkness. Life is stronger than death. Victory is ours through Him who loves us. Amen.'

- A prayer by Desmond Tutu

I heard some horrible news today. A buddy of mine has been given months to live. This prayer reminds me there is always hope and that life is stronger than death. Good is more powerful than evil.

In a world filled with so much pain & heartbreak and downright evil, this hope is all I can cling to.

That's it for now ...

The most powerful decision you can make in 2013

If your anything like me you've started your new year in days gone by making definite resolutions.

Failing.

Then berating yourself for not reaching the unrealistic goals you'd made. I would attack myself with criticism then load the criticism with guilt.

We don't need anyone else to give us a hard time. We are our own worst critics. I know for sure I certainly am.

One of the most dynamic things I did last year was to make the choice to forgive myself & let go of the heavy load of self induced insults I'd loaded onto my back for a long long time.

The freedom was EXTRAORDINARY.

Before you set any resolutions this year, then get mad and start badgering yourself with criticism for not keeping them, decide in 2013 to not be so hard on yourself & forgive yourself for past decisions then let them go.

Forgive yourself it's the most healing and healthy thing you'll ever do.

That's it for now ...

What's on your January reading list?

Words make me smile.

Books make me happy.

Reading brings me joy even if the content is sad.

This year we'll be talking more about words here on Salt & Sparkle. Words in books. Words as declarations. Words power. Words we write.

What are you planning to read in 2013?

That's it for now...
