Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

Success

Golden   This short blurb on success is by Travis De Luca.

One of the parts I discuss when presenting talks on success is, “We can only receive into our life what we see ourselves receiving.”  If we are not liking what we see in our life experience it is time to change our perception of self and situations. Life can only mirror back to us what we believe and accept as true about self and our world of experience, whether it is true or not.  Just some basics to think about.

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.

For You

Here Now   For you, is a quote from a newsletter by the late Dr. Tom Johnson, a friend and colleague.

“When you are Self aware your whole life is changed from being either mediocre or humdrum for it takes you away from living at the level of what is going on in the outer world.  When you are Self aware you are drawing out of your Self that which is unique and individual and so each moment is one of excitement, joy and of greatness.  When you are Self aware you are giving active recognition to this wholeness, this completeness…  The law of your Self is always in action and your point of attention must always be your experience.”

Today’s Positive Thought

Key   Today’s Positive Thought is by Hillel “The Elder.”

“If I am not for myself who is for me; and being for my own self what am I?  If not now when?

Carpe Diem, Jay

Friday

Friday is here and for most of us we are at the end of the work week.  With the transforming of ourselves into the “weekender” plans are made for our relaxation and enjoyment be it with others or by our self.  We bid the past week and all of its absurdities and unique experiences adieu and move on. 

Have an enjoyable weekend filled with surprising and unexpected good.

Today

   Today, let us take time to offer a prayer for the four, including our Ambassador to Libya, who were killed at U.S. Embassy in LibyaIt is a sad and disturbing  that this event took place on Sept. 11To the Libyan people who helped lead our embassy workers to safety and those who were wounded in this rescue, my heartfelt thanks.

No matter what country we reside let us offer a prayer of protection for our fellow countrymen and women who are in service as diplomats and in the military.

We seek to achieve harmony between all people, nations and religious beliefs.  Hatred, anger, savage violence is not an answer but destroyers of what we call humanity. 

As we encounter disharmony in life, let us be the bringer of  harmony and understanding to ourselves and our world.  

May God Bless You with understanding, tolerance and above all, harmony with self and life.

The Now

   How often do we ever think about living in the moment, the now?

It seems we tend to view the past or skip to the future but overlook the present moment in which we are living and breathing, perhaps not even aware of this present moment in time.

It is in this present moment that we can take action to create a better future moment to enjoy.

Do we allow the past moments to influence our future, of course we do.  Until we take the time to cease letting the past repeat itself in the future we exist in a vicious circle of history repeating itself and the future moment relived with all the angst of the past and perhaps more.  But the angst relived is always in the present which is the future we had set up in the past present moment of a moment ago.

Life is an awareness of self, of our power, talent, and ability to express It in all It’s great good in the here and now.

We can let past melancholia seep into the future present moment of time or we allow ourselves to take control of our thoughts, beliefs and concepts to initiate a more wonderful future present moment.  Life is how we direct it to be.  Life takes the form of what we deeply believe it is and what we believe we are and worthy of in living our life.

It is the simplicity of living that can be the hardest to achieve with all the fears and blocks we have set up for ourselves to better living.  Do we all have our challenges to overcome?  Yes, each and every one of us.

As we go forward let us not put ourselves down because “I am not…,” but build ourselves up because “I am…”     

Each and every obstacle, challenge, problem that comes our way allow us to utilize the power of our mind to vanquish them with positivity, faith, trust, and confidence in that we are the power over that which has none.  Those non-living “things” only have as much power over us as we give them.

YOU ARE THE POWER AND AUTHORITY IN YOUR LIFE, HERE AND NOW.

Use it wisely.
