A Reason to Smile


You are *not* damaged; Or, welcome aboard! (Video)

You are great, and I love you!

Welcome to a grand new adventure!

First, let me say thank you to everyone who voted for me to become the next Beliefnet Featured Blogger!
To show my appreciation, I did a short video sharing some things I’d like you to know, like:

*Why you are NOT damaged, broken, or flawed
*How to get over anything that is bothering you
*How to help people and give advice

I have a question for you; since this is our first day together, we’ll start simple.
Who are you?

Really, take some time to think about it: who are you?
If you answered with your name, that’s now you: that’s your name.
If you answered with your job title, that’s not you: that’s what you do to make money.
If you said you’re a Christian, Muslim, Atheist…that’s not you, that’s what you believe.
If you said you’re a man, or a woman, that’s not you: that’s your gender.
If you say you’re a mother or father, that’s not you: that just means you’ve reproduced.

Keep peeling back the labels until you see what’s underneath.

Think about it, and feel free to answer below. If you can’t think of it, I’ll tell you tomorrow.

I am glad to know you, and my life is better for it.
We are going to change the world together!

You are great, and I love you!
And if you love me back, click subscribe over on the right hand side!
