The clocks have been set back an hour again. This is also a good time to think about resetting your emotional clock. What do you do when you get overwhelmed? How do you deal with the stress and the pressure that each day brings? Every day, a little more pressure is added to your emotional reservoir. Every day it gets closer to capacity. Without some way to reset your emotional clock, you will become a time bomb waiting to explode. You must learn to reset your emotional clock and refresh your spiritual reservoir.
Motivational Moments: Change your thinking, change your life

Today was a great day.
Not because of anything in particular, but because at the end of every day I give thanks for all with which I am blessed. Today was a great day because I was able to work on some of my long-term goals and to help others focus on their goals. Today was a great day because I have so much hope for tomorrow and I look forward to achieving my greatness.
All of us would like for things to change for the better.
It is within this hope that we are able to deal with life's ups and downs. Some look for change to take place outside of them. They wish for others to be different. The truth is that real change takes place within us. We have to become the change we wish to see. Even if nothing outside of you ever changes, if you change for the better inwardly, your lives will be better. In order to live life to its fullest, you must change what you see, say and do.
THE MOORE THERAPY MOVEMENT: In order to grow, you have to MOVE

Today I want to speak with you about how to grow from being the person you are today, into the person you want to be. Perhaps you want to change your life circumstances. Perhaps you want advancement in your career. Perhaps you want spiritual growth. Perhaps you want a more meaningful relationship. Perhaps you want to lose weight. If any of these things resonate with you, I want to give you some simple advice.
Because you are the most important part of any relationship, any real improvements must first take place within you. Who you choose to be in a relationship with is a byproduct of how you feel about yourself. No healthy minded person would seriously consider marrying a 10-year-old. The 10-year-old is not mature or responsible enough for a serious relationship, and the person that married them would be headed for trouble.
Motivational Moments: Taking care of yourself first

Are you the first person that reaches out to help those in need?
Are you the one that others come to for help or advice? Do you have someone that you can turn to when in need? These questions are just a few that I have had to ask myself from time to time. Sometimes you can find yourself giving so much of yourself, until there’s nothing left over for you.
Parenting adult children can be both challenging and rewarding at times. As a parent of 4 adult children, I have firsthand knowledge of the stages and challenges that parents progress through as your child moves into adulthood. This will only get more complicated as times goes on. All four of my children are parents as well so I must also wear the grandparent hat. Those of us who are successful are able to move from parent, to life coach and mentor as the child moves from teenager to adult. This is true whether the child lives in or out of your house. Here are a few key tips to consider.
