This is the commissioner trying to answer your question. What works in anyones life is for people to accept who they are and how they were raised. Bad experiences are designed to build character in us, to give us strength and courage. Life brings with it good and bad times. Never ask why me. We all go through something that does not feel good, but life is not all about feeling good. Do something for someone even if you are poor. A kind word, a smile, or just a how are you feeling today, can lift someone's spirit and when we see a smile on someone's face it can be contagious.
Spread joy, tell a clean funny joke even if it takes effort. Do it anyway. I work in recovery with people who are depressed, and in many cases want to give up on life. I am a leadershp coach and believe me I hear all kinds of issues that people are faced with. DON'T GIVE UP!!! Be creative and recreate your life every day. If you can beleive it, you can receive it. Being comfortable in my own skin is what motivates me. Knowing my own ability, motivates me. Don't wait for someone to give you a chance in life, take the chance and pave your own road. Have a wonderful holiday. Note:
my answering machine leaves callers with this message: "IF YOU SEE SOMEONE WITHOUT A SMILE, GIVE THEM YOURS"
