Today’s Positive Thought

Rose Petal Heart   Today’s Positive Thought is by Vincent Van Gogh.

“Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.”

Goal Quote

   Goal Quote is by Dr. Jack Addington from his book, All About Goals.

“…Each one has the power to direct his conscious mind in such a way that he gives orders to the subconscious mind.  The subconscious mind knows only to take orders from the conscious mind and carry out these orders from the conscious mind with precision and exactitude.  Therefore, when you set a goal, you are setting the direction of your conscious mind, and this becomes the order to the subconsious mind.  The direction that you give the conscious mind becomes the law of your life.”

Shaping The Future

   I am shaping the future by reshaping my thoughts and beliefs for they are the clay of life that allows me to create the forms of unlimited successful and prosperous experiences.  If I do not like the current shape of my experiences I am free to change them and create a better now and a better future.

I am the artist in my life.  I shape it, and vibrantly color it, according to my progressive creative imagination which brings to me health, wealth, success, harmony, joy and all good prosperous things.  I use my imagination to give form to the clay of my thoughts and beliefs.  As I finish creating the thought form it is placed in the kiln of the Infinite to bring  it into my life.  I love working with the clay of my thoughts and beliefs to bring forth a new and wonderful life filled with experiences that take me forward and enhance my life and well-beingness.    

I am a creative artist and using the clay of my thoughts and beliefs I am now shaping my exciting and wonderful prosperous future.

What A Day

   I have been foraging through artwork and photos from the past…lots of them.  I am focusing on the black and white photos from pre 1920’s and up to the 1960’s.

When my mother passed on we found a plethora of photos of her family, with my father, and with her friends.  Some very fine posed ones as well. 

My mother never did follow her dream to become a dress designer in NYC, although she did design her own clothes, shirts for my father and me, and hand puppets for my puppet shows at school.  There were opportunities for her to work at top places after high school but she didn’t buck the trend to get married or engage in a career she desired. No matter how I tried over the years to have her design clothes, dresses in particular-her forte, and start something with someone or by herself it was always met with, “No.”  The main reason she gave was her age and that she was too old, she had been saying that for over 30 years.  She was a fantastic artist, designer and wrote poetry.  It saddened me to see her talents and abilities go unused and give up her artwork.  Neither she nor my father followed their dreams/desires and it showed. 

When time permits, and the pc and scanner co-operate, I will be sharing the photos on the PCA blog.

No matter how much we love someone and see how talented they are, if they are not willing to step out and take up the cause no matter how much prodding on our part, then, it is their choice alone.  Of course I would mention design every year and it was always the same response.  If and when the time comes and the fire is lit within them to go forward we will be there and be supportive of all their endeavors.

For me, I am following my dreams and desires…no time like the present, no matter what your age.  As I head into the next decade, and celebrate my age, I welcome it with open arms and enthusiasm for the good that is now entering my life. 

Life, you gotta live it.

Wishing you only the best in all things,

Contrary

   Contrary.  I want to be contrary.  I want to be fictional rather than a non-fictional character.  I want a better life.  I want a different life.  I want….

Ok.  So, you don’t want to be the you you think you are.  You want to be who you really are, a unique and uniquely successful character, do I have that right?

Alright, then let us begin the journey into the world of make-believe or is it; haven’t quite figured that out yet.  Yep, imagination incorporated is now engaged in creating your new you, you dashing character you.  Did you bring your list to submit?  Have you definitely decided on the avenue you want to follow to this new you?  Are you now ready to discard the old clothes that cloaked your real you, your new you?  You know, that designer stuff really looks good on you, but I digress.  Back to the start.  Accept who you are and know you are okay just the way you are…gotta be okay where you are at in order to move forward into the new, well dressed, exciting you. 

Be contrary, be daring, fling yourself out into the new and different…recreate, redesign is the order of the day.  Find your character!

Time to utilize your fantastical imagination, ah what the heck, fantasize about the new life and new you and have a good time.  Laugh at the ridiculous, squeal with delight, let your imagination run wild and then pick out the stuff that is really important and set it up as a destination and see it completed in that unique and colorful imagination of yours.  Gotta have color and sparkles and bright shiny stuff, dress it up to the max and have a good time with it.  Then when all is said and done…let it go and be thankful that imaginative process has given your thought stuff to the ethers to carry to the great stuff maker and let it come to pass.  You notice I say, let…you have to release  those exciting imaginings and thoughts to that invisible maker and let it do what it does best, deliver on time and in ways you are not even aware of.  

Go for the gold you fictional non-fictional character you!

Enjoy the travels.

Can I have your autograph?

A star is recognized and born.

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is by Dr. Venice Bloodworth from her book, Key To Yourself.

“Call on your imagination, the wonderful power we have, and paint mental pictures of what you want.  Build yourself and your environment as you would have them…and be not anxious as to the results.”

I Am What I Am

“I am what I am.”  If I remember correctly from my childhood, Popeye The Sailorman used this line, albeit stated a bit differently, and it is used in a song from La Cage.  How exciting to be what we be, I mean are.  

We are amazing!  We have the ability to bring forth new and more enriching experiences in our personal and professional life.  How often we have read that we can bring forth the experiences we desire.  It is all in our mind’s eye…it is what we see and promote for ourselves within our thoughts that shapes our life.

What do we see for ourselves?  What is our self-perception?  The nice part of what see for ourselves and self-perception is, it is a picture always under construction.  Some days we paint with dark muted colors and other days we paint the canvas of our life with vibrant colors and pastels.  If we are having a dark color day nothing says we have to stay where we are and suffer the slings and arrows of our own making. Yes, we can stop and take in the dark moment to understand it and move out of it, but; no lingering there, no giving up, no listlessness, or allowing ourselves to stagnate in this pond of goo which drains the very life and creativity out of us.  Time to jostle ourselves and know we have the power to decide, the power of decision to say firmly and with authority , “I can change this.”  “I am what I am and what I am is amazing.” “I am is the key to me and takes me to new and bright beginnings.”  I NOW PAINT MY LIFE ON A FRESH NEW CANVAS WITH COLORFUL AND EXCITING EXPERIENCES OF ABUNDANCE, WEALTH, HEALTH, PROSPERITY, WELL-BEING, SUCCESS AND ALL THAT I KNOW I AM DESERVING OF.” 

There is a creative power within and around us waiting for us to present it with the images of a better life so it may act upon and create the desired effects from the definite causes/thoughts presented to it.  

You are an artist.  In you is an eternal beauty and creativity.  Now is time to pick up the new canvas and paints to let the  inner artist of life express itself.  Let your inner beauty out and say, “I am what I am and what I am is amazing and prosperous.”  

Yes you are!

Yes, we did purchase the “I Am What I Am” t-shirts when we recently saw the show.

The Blank Canvas

   Sometimes we forget that we have a blank canvas to work with to creative an incredible life experience. 

It is time to take our mental paint brush and load it with the color of our imagination; to paint the canvas and see the picture take life before our eyes.  The joy of the imagination is the creativity we can employ to create a picture of the life we want to live and experience.  There is nothing to limit us, only our belief in ourselves and our abilities to achieve.  You are more than you think you are and have so much potential it is unbelievable. 

You are capable of reaching to any height you desire… no one or thing can stop you from achieving your dream(s). 

Today, take time to begin painting the new picture of your life and well-being.

Take time to create the life you want on the canvas before you. 

Take time to believe in you, your abilities and your talents.

You are a wonderfully creative individual to whom all is possible! 

Stop denying yourself of a life filled with the grandeur of being.  You deserve the life you want to live and in turn share your beauty and passion with the world around you.

Splash the color on the canvas!  Let the colors of your dreams and desires be expressed and don’t hold back, the canvas is yours to create on. 

Time to lose yourself into the dream and make it a reality.  Love the dream, Love the imagination, Love who you are totally and completely, most of all Love Life and all the great good that it has in store for you now. 

You are worthy of the highest and best and it is yours for the taking.  This taking is within your mind, claim it now. 

Time to color your world with the passion of being and be the prosperous successful individual you are meant to be!

You are loved and appreciated.  Jay
