Rip and Real - Day Seventeen

Rip and Real - Day Sixteen

Trust is never owed to us, it is up to us to earn it. It begins with how we communicate. Our communication is a reflection of our thoughts. Even the greatest of orators can't escape their thoughts slipping into their speech. When consistent action follows speech, trust is then earned.

We all have times when we need someone to extend their hand and say to us, "I believe in you!'

Rip and Real - Day Nine

When we place our value and our confidence in the hands of another, we will always be subject to feeling like a failure.

Stressful times puts every relationship to the test. The greatest challenge we face is accepting our emotional response which can strengthen or weaken our relationships.

Rip and Real - Day Seven

On life's path we are guaranteed we will face uncertainty and unknowns. Our decisions of the moment are made with the knowledge and skill we currently have available to us. Our success or failure provides us with experience to use when we are faced with the next obstacle and the next decision to be made. If we are willing to look at our history as lessons, instead of judgement and regret, we will find our evolution in life to be more productive and fulfilling.
