In a Moment ... Motivational Speaker, Theresa Gilliland

Tonight, at Christ Church, we were blessed to have as our guest a woman who shared her journey in life with us. Theresa Gilliland, author of "In a Moment", shared her positive attitude and how it has helped her survive some life changing events: Going blind, her husband's traumatic brain injury and accident, and her son's brain cancer.

It was a wonderful testimony and sharing, a look at overcoming adversity, not an easy road by any means, but one that was and can be done by each of us facing obstacles in our lives, but one that Theresa shared is a journey that continues, not a destination that we arrive at.

I took home much from her sharing, as well as some of her literature and book that I look forward to reading more of.

In one of Theresa's other booklets, she shares this quote from Helen Keller ...

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."

.... and another from Theresa ..

"With insight into our souls, we can accomplish anything."

Daily Reminders from Theresa...

Feed yourself positive images.
Shower yourself with positive talk.
Accept and give compliments.
Drink in a positive mental attitude.
Cope and deal with change.
Set your own standards. Avoid comparisons.
Build self-esteem.
Keep reminding yourself of your own worth.
Inhale the beauty of the day.

Thank you Theresa... it was a great evening!!
