Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

Today’s Positive Thought

Thinking   Today’s Positive Thought is by Deepak Chopra.

“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.  The past is closed and limited; the future is open and free.”

New Chapter

Congrats Toast   This past Saturday a chapter of my life was closed, a bit overdue, and a new chapter opened with new career paths.  New Endings and New Beginnings were the order of the day.  There was a celebration that included the ending of the old and welcoming the new with friends from both past and present.  A bright and sunny future greeted me with; open arms, new friends and colleagues. 

Opportunities are on the rise and I look forward to investigating them all.

I was a bit hesitant about the closing of this last chapter in my old life and had to make a decision to be true to myself, my desires, my dreams, while setting goals along the way. 

Life is always giving us cues and clues about the changes that will bring us more joy and happiness in our life and in our relationship with ourselves, family, friends and colleagues.  It all depends on when we are ready to gird our loins and move forward into a new life experience which will bring us great fulfillment as an individual. 

One of my favorite partial quotes is by Wm. Shakespeare, “To be or not to be…”  I chose to be me.  Not always the easiest decision to make when it affects all areas of your life. 

The journey ahead is filled with excitement and newness.  This new life has been tugging at me for quite a few years and it appears the decisions made were at the right time.

I wish you continued success on your journey to being you and to all you set your mind and hands.

Today’s Positive Thought

Happy   Today’s Positive Thougtt is by Deepak Chopra.

“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.  The past is closed and limited; the future is open and free.”

Challenges

The past couple of days I have been presented challenges to change my thinking and my perception of “things,” not always a pleasant or easy task.

These challenges have enabled me to alter my perception of the world around me and how I react/act to situations.

Meditation has helped quite a bit in getting realigned. 

In all that we do we have a choice; make it easy or make it more difficult than it needs to be.  I did a bit of latter.  Finally woke up to the fact, I was making it more difficult and harder for myself than it needed to be.  I had to remember to get back to basics and realize I am in charge of; my reactions, my letting people, places or things get the best of me.  Taking back control of my thoughts, beliefs, concepts and perceptions has given me the ability to move forward with some new plans.  As many of you know, last year presented many health challenges for me.  We have closed up the baking business as it is not in my best interest to continue and no doubt a way to point me in a new direction.  I am now mulling over a variety of ideas and directions to follow.  

Challenges give us the opportunity to grow and shine in ways we may never have thought of nor even considered.  For all I have experienced I am grateful.  New doors will open and new opportunities will appear at the right time.

Once we get over the initial shock of the challenge and move through it we are stronger and able to see anew.  We set new goals and find creativity springing from every corner to inspire us and lead us forward to a richer life experience.

Life is in constant motion and rather than stagnate in the old ways I am looking forward to flowing with and into new and exciting adventures in living life.

So, as the saga continues and we share our thoughts and ideas with each other we grow in the light and love that forever surrounds us and lifts us up to new heights and most importantly of all, to a new awareness of self.

Will be writing more this week so stay tuned.
