“Why do you

seek treasure

far away,

when it is nearby,

indeed within


~ Marcilio Ficino


Could is a body that needs to move a muscle

so that you may do what needs to be done.

Should is the mind, the part of you that thinks

the wrong thing every time, even when

you know and believe that things must change.

Would is the heart and soul, that part of you

that is the radio, the TV, the satellite

transmitter/receiver of the words of your Higher Power,

that when obeyed, make life a treasure of pleasure

and excitement.

Today, be a friend, have a friend, and exercise

the opportunity to be a positive emotional support:

Say, I knew that you could do it.

Say, I know that you should have faith.

Say, I knew that you would choose to do the next right thing.

Obey the will of a Higher Power and respect yourself and others.

“When we treat man as he is,
we make him worse than he is;
when we treat him as if he already
were what he potentially could be,
we make him what he should be.”

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Say, you can. Say, you shall. Say, you will. Live in today.

If you could have, should have and would have done

the next right thing, you need not worry about yesterday.

Guilt, shame and remorse over the could haves,

should haves and would haves is a negative place that

you and your friends do not need to visit.

If you could have, should have or would have done the

will of a Higher Power, the lessons learned will make

for a better today.

Tomorrow never comes.

“If a man could have half of his wishes,
he would double his troubles.”
~ Benjamin Franklin

Carry a Touch that never hurts, the could that your body can.

Carry a Heart that never hates, the would that your mind shall.

Carry a Smile that never fades, the should that your soul will.

Remember, the could, should and would is the treasure within you.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
