Today’s Positive Thought

Cup   Today’s Positive Thought is by Edward Fitzgerald.

“Ah, fill the Cup:–what boots it to repeat

How Time is slipping underneath our Feet: 

Unborn TO-MORROW,  and dead YESTERDAY,

Why fret about them if TO-DAY be sweet!”

Sage advice to live in the now, the present moment of time, for it is all we have.  Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is past the horizon.  Jay

Are You Kitchen Brave? Part 2 of 2

  

Walking into the kitchen of our mind can be quite a daring experience.  We may stand at the pantry staring blankly at the ingredients before us and wonder, what am I going to use to create a special treat filled with the sweet taste of success.  How many times have we done this at our desk? Sat there and wondered what our next move will be.  It was when we were daring and followed a different path, spiced it up with something new, that we succeeded in our endeavor.

When baking we have a basic recipe.  The basic recipe for us is that we can think.  Thinking of new ways, recipes, for our success and prosperity to be brought into fruition we dared to test the waters and moved forward with our ideas.  

Creating the cake, the icing and the filling, you break a few eggs, add milk, flour and sugar and the rest of your special ingredients which in the end makes an absolutely delicious creation!  The cake is the outward appearance, the icing is your success and the filling your feeling of joy and well-being over what you have accomplished.   Get that glass of ice-cold milk, sit down and enjoy your sweet end product.

When creating a cake, cupcake, or cookie we can deviate from the basic recipe, add our special and unique touch.  For instance, when I make a white cake I add more vanilla extract; if I want to make a lemon cake I add lemon extract, lemon zest and vanilla extract; creativity in the kitchen is a must.  Creativity and imagination in living a life of success and prosperity is part of the basic recipe, add those different ingredients, our special talents and abilities, we make it our own.  Each of us are only limited by our imagination and daring to be different.  We can create a unique sweet sensation that not only has never been done before but also be a success. What is this sweet product?   It is our success and prosperity created in our own mental kitchen and baked in the oven of belief, knowing and acceptance that it is already successfully completed and in our life now. 

As stated before, life like baking can be tweaked.  If a recipe doesn’t come out the way we imagined, we learn from what we did and go back to tweak the recipe by adding or deleting an ingredient.  If our endeavor is not going as planned we need to be flexible enough to tweak it and if necessary toss it out, should have seen what I tossed while creating my recipes, and start all over again with the knowledge we have gained and our willingness to move forward and not be hindered by our mistakes, others remarks or negativity toward our goal(s).

We are the deciding factor in our life. Who and what we allow to influence us, be it in a positive or negative way, as we go forward will either sweeten or sour the end product.

Your success is just that, YOUR SUCCESS attained by YOUR DETERMINATION, YOUR ENTHUSIASM, and YOUR DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE AND PLAN OF ACTION. 

CREATE AND BAKE A NEW NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE SUCCESS FILLED LIFE.  THE INGREDIENTS ARE THERE FOR YOU!  PUT ON THAT APRON AND BEGIN SIFTING THE FLOUR WITH A SONG IN YOUR HEART AND ON YOUR LIPS.  LET YOUR IMAGINATION, YOUR DREAM, YOUR DESIRE BE YOUR CREATIVE MUSES.

Saturday

   What a great day…time to energize and take trip to the Farmer’s Market get those fresh fruits, veggies and bread.  How about splurging on a unique cup of coffee and sweet while you are out exploring the town/country, you are worth it.

Have a fun filled day and smile, which will make everybody wonder what you are so happy about!

What A Month

Hi Everyone,

What a month it has been.  We had emergency room visits, were rear ended and sideswiped,  doctor appointments, hospital visits, surgery and being a caregiver (still am) and all this within the first few weeks of the month. It has bee a full month of unexpected events.  We are looking forward to June being a quiet and sedate month for us.

Though it has been a rough month in many ways and taxing at times it has strengthened my resolve in staying positive and focused as much as possible, through all these ordeals, on being in the moment and not giving away my power to worry or upset.  As the saying goes, “When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade.”  But what is life without the bittersweet moments so, that, when we encounter those wonderful, joyous, happy moments we can savor their sweetness in their entirety with a smile on our face.  

Time to get back on the creativity train and writing posts and articles.

Have A Great Day.

   Jay ,
