Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

Today’s Positive Thought

Rainbow   Today’s Positive Thought is by Charles R. Brown.

“We are not hen’s eggs, or bananas, or clothespins, to be counted off by the dozen.  Down to the last detail we are all different.  Everyone has his own fingerprints.  Recognize and rejoice in that endless variety.  The white light of the divine purpose streams down from heaven to be broken up by those human prisms into all the colors of the rainbow.  Take your own color in the pattern and be just that.”

Variety Of Experiences, Part 1 of 2

There are a variety of experiences that lead us to our destination, our goal.  Some are great and wonderful and build our enthusiasm and ego to move on with gusto; others are dark, murky and negative that leaves us flat on the ground wondering what the hell we are doing.  Ah, the wonder of contrasts keeps us honest and on track without an overinflated ego, affords us a new take on self-perception and our idea.  Both the positive and negative are needed for us to become the success that we have planned and to be the best person that we can be. I have met a few extremely successful people in my life and the ones that truly out pictured their great success where those who did not have an over inflated ego or better than thou attitude. They were humble, gracious; thankful for the life they have and treated all with respect.  

The road to success is paved with attitude, belief and desire.  No matter what people say to us or about our idea or goal it is up to us to take it and use it for our betterment or to toss it.  At times we meet individuals who have lost sight of their dream and desire to be more and to express more of who they are and have let their talent and ability go latent, back into the tightly closed shell.  They can be mean spirited and not only negative about life but others who are successful or on the way to success.  I am sure we have all encountered this type of person, a person who does not know or accept their worth and when they see others on the move they become jealous and upset at themselves for not doing something with their life. This individual is one who I pray for to realize their potential and move from this lower level of thought to a higher one and to embrace themselves, their talents and their abilities.  Let us not allow their words or deeds to affect us  as we travel on the road to our success.

Part 2 follows tomorrow.

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.

What About Me?

   What about me?  The “me” is a wonderful creation; it is filled with a variety of surprises.  The me gives direction to life and truly understands that me is created in freedom, not in bondage for the Big Me that created me would never have created me to be in bondage but in freedom to self-discover, to find that secret information that is hidden in the wide open spaces of my soul, that me is unlimited to do and to be.  To think the Big Me would create me in bondage to lack and limitation is to dishonor It.

So, what is me capable of?  Well, me is fully capable of sustaining a life of beauty, of harvesting the highest and best that life and this world has to offer.  Me is a creative genius that is able to think and have that thought come into existence from the unseen to the seen.  The me is; prosperous, successful, healthy, wealthy, wise, and oh so much more.

The me being is not merely made of flesh and blood but is a wondrous individualized expression of the Big Me.  Me is not only capable of thinking grand thoughts but is imbued with the power and ability to bring them forth as a me life experience.  

Me is a gorgeous, beautiful, joyous celebration of the Big Me that has endowed me with the power and ability to express life in all Its glory and radiance.

The Law of the Big Me permeates the seen and unseen and follows the ancient dictate,” as within, so without.”

The real me is a mystical creation of light and love and it is the me challenge to recognize it, accept it, and use it to the best of my me capability to live a life of; well-being, freedom, self-awareness and self-discovery.

Lack and limitation are but borders which are temporary and change as easily as the me changes me thought.  No-thing is difficult or hard to accomplish unless the me deems it so.  All is within the me purview to change and enhance for life will always be what the me believes it to be.

Today, let me be all me can be and be with a joyous heart, open mind and an awareness of this deep and abiding power that lies within.

What about me?  Me is a wonderful creation that I celebrate every moment of every day.

Saturday

   Just for today do something new and different.  Change it up a bit and keep the mind and body active with a new experience.  Try a new restaurant, go out and enjoy a picnic lunch, go hiking or biking on a new path, visit a museum or art gallery, window shop downtown, take in an antique store or historical site, and the like.  Remember, variety is the spice of life, so spice it up today.
