Today’s Positive Thought

Day Dream 2   Today’s Positive Thought is by Dr. R.C. Barker.

“It is difficult realize that the thing you want is where you are.  All that needs to be done is to correct your belief.  Hope has done more to lift the world than all that worry has done to destroy it…There is something in you which your worry can never destroy, but which your faith, your vision and your belief can affirm and thus make you the person you are going to be.”

Congrats Toast   Today’s Positive Thought is by Christian D. Larson.

“Whatever you meet in life that seems difficult, or even impossible, remember it is in you to do it.  And what a privilege to prove this amazing fact at every opportunity.”

Opportunity

   Opportunity quote is by John Burroughs.

The Simple Life Part 2 Of 2

   Life is easy, but we tend to complicate it with our fears, negative emotions, anger, upset and at times a not so great overall view of life.  My advice, “Stop making life so difficult.”  The sooner we can get past the gunky thinking, (that which clogs and stops up creativity and the flow of good into our life), the sooner we begin to realize improvement and a sense of joy in achieving and being.

Understanding the law of cause and effect and taking responsibility for our thoughts and life are essential first steps in success.

Over the years I have been asked to, “Fix me but don’t change me.”  Talk about an impossibility!  My response was, “I can’t fix you but I can help you change, if you want.”   If a person is unwilling to change the causation of their undesired experiences there are no band-aid remedies that will make it go away or patch it up like new—not even duct tape will help.

Life is what we make it, good, bad, indifferent, difficult, easy, sad or happy, it is up to us get our buns in gear and move up and out of mediocrity to phenomenal.

If you want to participate in life so be it but if not…well, just keep it to yourself; don’t continue to spew negatives about what others are doing, their dreams or goals. We have all met people who like to pontificate on all subjects, like to tell people what to do and how to do, all the while their life is so messed up that it is unbelievable, it gets tiresome after a while, perhaps we feel sorry for them.  The amazing thing is, when help is offered their fear appears and causes them to run from the offer with a variety of excuses and continue their mere existence with the same hurt, tears, anger and upset not only at themselves and others, but the world.  Eventually, when they tire of their situation, they will ask for help to the outstretched hand of the one who previously offered.  This is where you and others of the same positive mindset become the example, the teacher, the storyteller, the healer, the motivator, the friend.

You are the most important thing you can give to the world. Smile, take life by the hand and show it what you want with focus, determination, knowing and authority.  Life will then become that which you have shown it.

The Simple Life Part 1 Of 2

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.
