Good Grief, I Learned a Lot, Charlie Brown!

5. Sometimes you need to listen. Even crabby, self-indulged Lucy knewrepparttar importance of listening. She startedrepparttar 123972 famous 'Psychiatry Booth' where any and all could come and be heard.

6. Do what you love to do. Through all their adventures, Schroeder remained constant in his appreciation of Beethoven and his love of playingrepparttar 123973 piano. He loved to play piano and that's what he did, regardless ofrepparttar 123974 circumstances. Charlie Brown flew his kite, played baseball and football, not just to win (he knew he wouldn't), but because he loved to do those things.

7. It's important to have friends that care. The 'Peanuts' gang was made up of individual characters, each with their own foibles and talents, but through it all they were always there for each other.

8. Big dreams lead to big things. Snoopy wasrepparttar 123975 biggest dreamer of them all, but his wild imagination often led to even wilder, more fantastic adventures in real life. Snoopy knew that you must have a big dream if you are going to lead a big life.

9. Action creates reality. As Charlie Brown was reminded time and again after prodding from Linus: it takes action to bring about change. Though he often failed, Chuck took action quite regularly... and every now and again things would go his way.

10. Laugh every day! Whilerepparttar 123976 kids themselves may not have seenrepparttar 123977 humor inrepparttar 123978 things they did, Schulz made sure that we did. Life is only as serious or as humorous as YOU make it.

Lighten up. Go play softball. Fly a kite. Dance with your dog. Smile... it makes people wonder what you're up to.

Now is the Time for Change

Written by Michelle L. Casto

Continued from page 1
What changes your life is not learning more, though education is important. What changes your life is not making decisions, although making choices and acting on them is important. What changes your life is being in touch with your inner self and designing your life around what is important and true for you. Rollo May,repparttar famous psychotherapist once said, “The cause for insanity is doingrepparttar 123971 same thingrepparttar 123972 same way expecting different results.” How many times in life have you donerepparttar 123973 same thingrepparttar 123974 same way hoping for a different outcome? To keep from going insane, stop looking forrepparttar 123975 answer onrepparttar 123976 outside and start looking onrepparttar 123977 inside for what is blocking your efforts. Albert Einstein once said, “Nothing happens until something moves.” In other words, change will not come until something inside you moves, like letting go of limiting beliefs, fears, resentments, and making room in your heart for more of what you want. When you turn inward and face your fears and limiting beliefs, you are more capable of facing your reality, whatever it may be. When you look at what is buried in your unconsciousness, it dissolves inrepparttar 123978 light of consciousness. The Pleiadians urge us: “You shall change. You will change. You must change because this isrepparttar 123979 season of change.” Now isrepparttar 123980 time to re-think and reevaluate your life. Now isrepparttar 123981 time to create change inrepparttar 123982 world. Now isrepparttar 123983 time to heal. Now isrepparttar 123984 time to sing and to dance. Now is repparttar 123985 time do your inner soul work. Now isrepparttar 123986 time to transform your life.
