Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

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.

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

Today’s Positive Thought

Building Blocks   Today’s Positive Thought is byFrancis Bacon. 

“A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.”

Celebrate You

Time to celebrate you and all that you are, life is too short to be lived with regrets of “what would’ve been” or “what I would’ve achieved,” age is not a factor. 

Celebrate you, your uniqueness, and your differences.  None of us is the same; none of us will achieve the same way as another. Each of us has our own special talents and abilities and will achieve accordingly, be thankful for the differences.  Life is not to be a boring, lackluster experience but be an invigorating and colorful experience that celebrates your life and living.  Emerging from the dark and dank shadows of “what if…” a new day dawns and life takes on a whole new meaning, glistening with and presenting new possibilities and opportunities.   Time to be willing to try something new, a new approach to life, a new approach to problem solving, a new approach to expressing the unique and wonderfully creative individual you are! 

As we begin to express our creative talents and abilities, newness enters our life in a variety of ways most of which may come as a surprise to us.

Live your life; celebrate you and all that you are.  You are You and no one can take your place, so enjoy being you and be thankful for all that you are and all that your life is.

Our Success

Our success is in living life.  It is in living with a positive attitude and foresight.

Our success is in being focused. In having a clear vision of our goals and where we are going.  If we need a clearer vision of our goals and where we desire to go in life, we can use either or both visualization techniques and meditation to help us center and afford us the opportunity to fine tune or set new goals.  Sometimes in our fine tuning we see, that, we are stubbornly holding on to some “thought or belief”  that is hampering our forward movement which can necessitate the replacing of the goal or merely recalibrating our thought/belief to be more in line with our ambition without being mulish about it.

Our success is in being open to new ideas, in new ways of doing things, it is about being flexible in life, thought and action/deed.  Not everything in life is black and white or blatantly obvious.  It is the varying shades in-between that color our life , that make us who we are, that gives us our character and unique successes , it colors our ambition to be all we can and to be successful in what we have chosen to do with our life.  There is no standing idly by waiting for success to suddenly appear in our life or drop into our lap as we sit in our easy chair or on the sofa while watching television. Write down or create a treasure map of where you see yourself, use positive wording, write in the present tense and make use of colorful pictures for impressing your mind.  Success is not difficult.  It is only our perception and belief of how hard we want to make it.  Success is a fun adventure; it is filled with thrills and chills, warmth and color, with passion and enthusiasm, with tears-some of sadness in the letting go and some of joy and happiness in the welcoming in.

When we know and affirm that we always meet the right people at the right time and right place, it happens.

When we believe and affirm we are always in the right place at the right time, it happens.

When we believe and affirm that the right “things” appear in our life at the right time for our benefit, they do.

Success is in knowing that so-called chance meetings bring success to both us and the others involved. 

Success is in listening and heeding our intutiion.

When we know and accept that life has been and is always for us, then,changes appear in our experiences. 

The power of our success is in the power of our thoughts and beliefs.  It is in gaining new perceptions and new concepts about living and life.  It is up to us to be open to life and all that is now and always has been ready to bestow upon us for a better and greater life of success, prosperity, health, wealth and well-being.

Our success is in being us; for all our faults and foibles. 

Grow, change, fine tune, appreciate yourself for you, for your talents and abilities, above all, for the uniquely successful character you are.

Success, and all that perks that come with it,  is knocking, open the door and welcome it into your life and affairs.

Today’s Positive Thought

      Today’s Positive Thought is by Og Mandino from his book, The Greatest Salesman In The World.

“I have been given eyes to see and a mind to think and now I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last that all my  problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise.  I will no longer be fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open.  I will look beyond the cloth and I will not be deceived.”
