Out with the Old, In with the New

by Teresa Smith on January 5, 2015

It’s the beginning of a new year. Out with the old and in with the new. Don’t we all wish it could be that easy. Don’t you wish that with the each new year, new month or even each new day… you could fully let go of things that don’t serve you anymore and embrace [...]

I was in my front yard, looking at the sky yesterday afternoon when I noticed a dandelion. One little dandelion in the midst of my brownish green grass. As I looked around on this first day of winter, I noticed all of the leaves had fallen off of my trees and the lifeless looking grass. [...]


A Work of Art

by Teresa Smith on December 8, 2014

I’m always looking at things when I’m driving. Now don’t be upset. It’s not that I’m not paying attention to my driving and I’m all over the road. I am…taking in everything I see. I notice the trees, thinking that some look more powerful and stronger than others. Some trees have character. I notice colors [...]


Truth Is…

by Teresa Smith on September 29, 2014

It’s so hard for me to believe that Fall is here. Where did the year go? It seems like just yesterday I was slipping and sliding through the ice. Not only has the ice gone, but so has spring flowers and long hot summer days. I’ve started noticing the shift in the sun, leaves beginning [...]

For years I’ve watched the Tonight Show off and on. I enjoyed Carson, and Leno had his moments. When Jimmy Fallon took over earlier this year, I began watching it nightly. I remember watching Fallon on Saturday Night Live and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and was glad to see him move into the Tonight [...]

I experienced some vandalism during the past week. I came home one day to find my mailbox had been damaged. I wish I could say that I handled it all with ease… but I didn’t.  I was totally bent out of shape. Almost 2 years to the date after someone had plowed down my brick [...]

I attended some great seminars this past week. I believe no matter where we are in life we can always learn something new. One of the classes spoke about mindset… which you know, I’m all about. Do you have an open mindset or has your mindset gradually shut down due to how you were taught [...]


Things Aren’t Always As They Seem

by Teresa Smith on August 11, 2014

This past week my cousin went on vacation. She had heard about a place in town to board pets. At the facility, there are different levels of service and different types of rooms for your pet. There were overhead cameras in the facility so while you were away, you could always take a peak at [...]


Believing Without Seeing

by Teresa Smith on July 14, 2014

I don’t know if you’re like me, but I have such a hard time when it comes to faith. Faith is defined as ‘Confidence or Trust in a Person, Thing or Idea. Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence.’  The Bible says… Faith is the confidence that what we hope for [...]


When Your Soul Needs A Boost

by Teresa Smith on July 7, 2014

Several weeks ago I attended a presentation where Tony Robbins was one of the recorded speakers. He stated that people ask him all of the time if he ever got depressed or down because his job is to uplift others and help others create a more positive perspective. He stated that he had down days, [...]
