Today’s Positive Thought

Stage      Movie Camera      Today’s Positive Thought is by TDL.

“Ya know, like I tell myself in da mornin’ over cawffee and munchin’ on a Taylor ham and egg on a hard roll: Get your act together, learn your lines, listen and get behind the character you’re playing, their backstory, ’cause in the long run its you.”

Thinking   Today’s Positive Thought is by James Allen, 1864-1912.

“They themselves are makers of themselves by virtue of the thoughts, which they choose and encourage: that mind is the master weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance, and that, as they may hitherto woven in ignorance and pain they may now weave in enlightenment and happiness”

“The aphorism, “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he,” not only embraces the whole of a man’s being, but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life.  A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.”

Changes & Personal Letter

Pic Of Jay   Hello Friends, 

There are changes coming to this blog, PCA.  Since I am now able to pursue career choices, which are near and dear, January will be last month that there will be daily posts of positive statements and articles.  There will be at least 3 posts per week of positive statements and on occasion articles.

Life is always full of changes and most are unexpected but changes are inevitable and life must go on and goals to reach. 

This blog began in August of 2011 for purely cathartic purposes, to get my mind and creativity active.  The healing process from the full respiratory arrest and coma has taken time and persistence.  But, what I have learned about myself, family, friends, is priceless.  I have found that rebuilding my self-confidence in doing what I love has been an extreme task entailing lots of risks, being able to look at things in a totally different light, and has deepened my understanding of self, others and this world.  Having the support and love of my wife and dear friends to pursue my career choices has been and is immeasurable. 

I am so thankful and appreciative of you, my fellow bloggers and followers, for staying with me through some dark and turbulent times.     

Life is always presenting us with unique pathways to follow, if we dare. 

Words cannot express my thanks for your comments and likes; they have strengthened me and my resolve in moving forward.

Should you decide to publish any of the articles which I have written please notify me and e-mail the name of the publication via the page titled “Contact Jay,” thanks.  In re-blogging or using any of the quotes please give credit to the author.  

Thank you for your support and prayers. 

As I begin my search for both talent and literary agents I know that you are backing me and that means the world to me.

Now for personal thanks to those who gave me opportunities early on.  I am thankful to all the editors/publishers who asked me to be a regular contributing columnist on positive attitudes for their publications and to interview successful local business owners.  I am thankful for being asked to speak to a variety of groups over the years.  I am thankful to our friend Ruth, who gave me the opportunity to be her successor on her television show and to create my own show and format many years ago.  I am thankful for my acting teacher, Jobyna, a wonderful and talented character actress.  I am very thankful to the director who recently cast me for a stage production, with much stage time and dialogue, and for her affirmative comments as to my acting chops (skills).  I am thankful to my first talent agent, Ruth, who backed me 100%.  To our friend Mokihana, a great talent, much Aloha.  Thanks to all of you for you.  

Being thankful, even for the not so good stuff, is an important part of successful living.        

Please stay in touch through the comment section and let me know how you and your goals are coming along.  Your comments will not be published

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this rather long post.  

All my best to you always and in all ways,

Jay

Claim your success!  You deserve it.  Jay

Are You Kitchen Brave? Part 1 of 2

  

Are you kitchen brave?  Are you brave enough to be you in the kitchen of life?  Are you willing to walk into the kitchen of your mind to experiment and create your own unique recipe for success, prosperity and overall well-being?  Are you ready to break some eggs and mix things up? If so, continue reading and get ready to bake up some new exciting recipes for life.

We are always creating through our cooking, our baking, our thoughts and beliefs. Life has given each of us a mind and every moment of every day we have a variety of thoughts that shape our character.  Our thoughts, beliefs and concepts are the batter and dough of our life, we are forever taking the formless and giving it form.  From the mixing bowl of thought to the oven of life to solidify our creation.  We live in the kitchen of life, the kitchen of personal creation.

Creating recipes in the kitchen are about learning from what works in a recipe and what does not.  Some of our creations don’t turn out the way we planned and we have to go back to the recipe and make changes learning what will work to bring forth our desired creation.  Life is about learning what works for us and what does not.  From this learning experience we can enhance our life in prosperous and successful ways.

If we are truly interested in making our lives more fulfilling and more reflective of a robust and prosperous life then we must step into the kitchen of our mind and begin to create and bake a new way of manifesting the life we want, no more sitting at the kitchen table with a glass of ice cold milk waiting for the cookies to be set in front of us. It is time to be proactive and get our hands covered in flour and roll out the dough, ready the oven and get ourselves in gear.  Get your apron ‘cause this is gonna be one heck of a baking session. 

Basic ideas/inspiration can be gained from; books, quotes, perhaps a platitude or two, or positive affirmations and informative articles which can begin to stir the creative juices. But until we decide to do something with these inspiring pieces we will only have the warm fuzzies and nothing more. Time to utilize our inborn talents and abilities and make the life we dream of and desire. The time has arrived to take action for our own self-improvement, which in turn will affect the world around us in positive ways. Time to get into the kitchen and create the cookie of your dreams!

Get out the electric mixer, flour, eggs, milk, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder and baking soda, the basics of the recipe.  We all have the basics at our finger tips; the challenge is what we are going to use to make it our own unique recipe. Are we going to use ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon extract, almond extract, add nuts or poppy seeds?  The combinations are endless and we can create the recipes we desire and if it is not to our liking we can change it up and make it better.  It is merely a batter of mind, no pun intended.  When we have mixed the ingredients together it becomes a batter or dough, to create a cake, a cupcake, a cookie or a jelly roll, perhaps cinnamon buns, the choice is always ours. What do you feel like today?

Part 2 tomorrow.
