Making a difference…

What you say or do today
could make a difference
in other people's lives,
as well as your own.

Please choose your
words carefully, giving
considered thought to what
message you
may convey to others
through a simple word
or statement - always be
mindful of the sensitivity
of others.

You are being counselled,
also, to be absolutely
sure that you are making
the correct choices
before making a final
decision on anything
important today.

"Give thought to what you're
doing, be mindful of
what you say, the kindest
words and gestures could
make someone's day"

Strength…

Strength…

 

The STRUGGLE you

are in today is

developing the

STRENGTH you need

for tomorrow.

DON’T GIVE UP!

 

*

 

When we are struggling with life issues

it doesn’t feel like fun at all,

but if we endure long enough and learn

some kind of a lesson from the struggle,

we come out a better, stronger person.

 

Just hang in there and know

that it will be over soon

and you will be

so much STRONGER

because of what you learned

from it!

Connect…

Connect…

 

We are all joined in one way or

another.  Take time to reach out

and connect with someone today.

You can make a difference in their

life and your own life

with one single connection.

~Sue DeCaro

 

*

 

Connection happens in so many ways.

 

You can connect with people for an entire lifetime.

With just a word or two,

especially  powerful words like I love you.

 

Or even a small hello can start

a friendship or relationship

through merely acknowledging someone else

and giving them your attention.

 

You can make such a difference

in someone’s life by patting them on the back

or shaking their hand,

or taking their hand in yours

and just holding it there for a moment

while looking into their eyes.

 

Even a subtle little

smile is a connection of sorts.

 

Connection can show compassion,

caring, sharing, and love.

 

We are all joined in one way or

another.

Take time to reach out

and connect with someone today.

 

Do your part in making the world

a better place by

connecting.

Everything…

Everything…

 

Everything you’ve ever done,

every person you’ve ever met,

every experience you’ve ever had,

is a part of who you are today.

 

Adding interesting layers to your being,

and colorful depths to your soul.

Everything needed to be as it was,

so you could grow as you did and do.

We get stronger…

We get stronger…

 

Maybe some things

don’t get better, but we do.

We get stronger.  We learn to live with our

situations as messy and ugly as they are.

We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can’t

Maybe some of us will never be fully okay, but

we’re here.  We’re still trying.  We’re doing the

best we can.  That’s worth celebrating too.

If you’re reading this, congratulations,

you made it today.  You made it.

~Rajneesh Mishra

There’s a lot to be said for

showing up every day.

 

Sometimes it takes as much

courage and fortitude

as we can muster to just

keep showing up.

 

Life can be awkward

and sometimes harsh.

 

Not at all what we

expected or wanted,

at times.

 

Yet here we are.

 

People can be mean and unforgiving.

 

Thy can make us want to quit on life.

 

But we just can’t let anyone

influence us into giving up.

 

This is our life.

 

Our chance to make a difference.

Our chance to experience

every breath in peace and harmony.

 

To have some fun every day.

And smile.

 

There may be rough patches,

but things do smooth out eventually,

because that is LIFE.

 

Don’t give up on your dreams.

 

Keep showing up

and

CONGRATULATIONS

 

Just for today,

you made it.

Anyway…

Forgive them anyway…

“People are often unreasonable and self-
centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of
ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be
happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten
tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may
never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and
God. It was never between you and them
anyway.”
~Mother Teresa

When someone hurts you in any way,

you are focused on that person and what they did.

You spend your time thinking and re thinking

about the hurt and what happened.

Maybe even taking time to think about what they said

and what they really meant and what it felt like to them.

 

Even if it was just them being self-centered and unreasonable.

But the more you stay in that hurtful feeling and re living the hurt,

the longer you promote the situation as a “hurtful” experience.

If you can possibly “forgive” them and move on,

you will be free from whatever they did.

You probably won’t want to totally forget what happened,

but forgiveness=freedom for you.

 

If you are a kind person, people may misunderstand you

and think that you are just faking it for some reason.

Don’t worry about what others think

because they are coming from their own perspective, not yours.

It’s up to you to decide how kind you want to be

and if you want to keep practicing kindness for your own

self realization and growth.

 

If you are honest, people may

take advantage of you and cheat you.

Again, that is their bad if they rip you off in some way.

 

It may not feel good to you, but if you can just learn from the experience

and realize that not everyone has your best interest at heart,

you can become more aware and not let the same thing happen again.

 

Don’t worry, and you don’t have to get even either.

That is what KARMA is about.

Sooner or later they will be presented with the same thing they did to you.

Just be honest, anyway.

You will feel so much better and your path will attract more people like you in the future.

 

If you find happiness, people may be jealous of you.

Just be an example and let them have something to aspire to.

You never know how much you will effect them just by showing

that happiness is possible in a broken world.

 

Do your best to live your life

being thankful and grateful every day.

 

It is between you,

yourself, and God,

so don’t worry about what others think.

 

They have their own life to live,

not yours.

It’s Enough…

It’s Enough…

“If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, putting off homework, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough.”
— Daniell Koepke

Some days are going to feel better than others.

Not every day can be a perfect high energy day.

Although we would like them to be and we work towards higher energy and a better life every day.

When you are not feeling it, give yourself permission to put your healing first.

Allow yourself to have a “day off” once in a while to regroup and recharge yourself.

We are not machines.

We are flesh and blood human vehicles that need to recharge our veritable batteries.

At times we may feel so low that we have to get sick in order to make ourselves take a little time off of our regular life and routine.

We need to be more understanding of ourselves.

  • More allowing.
  • More satisfied.
  • Happy where we are.
  • Happy with our friends.
  • Rested

 

And today, whatever you do, let it be enough.

 

Take the pressure off of yourself and just be who you are.

You are a unique individual who is worthy of just BEING.

Today’s to do list…

Today’s to do list…

  1. Practice kindness
  2. Let go of what I can’t control
  3. Count my blessings
  4. Listen to my Higher Self
  5. Install calmness around me
  6. Share my light with others
  7. Pass this on to encourage someone else.

 

*

 

This is an inspirational list of things to aspire to

today

  and

every day.

Just start at the top and think about the first thing on the list.

 

     1. Practice kindness.

It takes practice to be kind in every situation.

It is much easier to just walk away from things that strike you in an opposing way or

people who are reacting with anger or being mean to you.

The kinder you are, the more kindness you will attract to your own life.

 

     2. Let go of what I can’t control

Let go of all of those things that aren’t under your control.

Don’t worry or fret about those things.

Just let them be and go on living your life of peace and joy.

 

     3. Count my blessings

We all have so many blessings every day.

If you take time to look for them and acknowledge them they will continue to grow.

 

      4. Listen to my Higher Self

Your inner being is your higher self.

When you are able to hear your inner being and listen to the truth of what it says to you, things become clear in your life.  You need to learn to trust it and listen to it always.

 

     5. Install calmness around me

Look for ways to install and allow calmness around you in all ways.

Take time to find things that calm your mind and bring you peace.

Whether it be soft relaxing music, things you can read, or pictures that bring you a feeling of peace and harmony.

Turn off the TV and just take a walk in nature, enjoying what you find along your path.

If you can’t go outside, maybe you can find a fountain to turn on that has a relaxing sound of water flowing gently from it.

 

     6. Share my light with others

Once you get it all together and find the light within, you need to share it with others.

Don’t be shy about being the light in someone else’s life.

They may really need to see you shine so that it can ignite their own light and encourage them to be their best enlightened self, following your lead.

 

     7. Pass this on to encourage someone else.

This is a great list to pass on to someone else.

It may be just the thing that pulls it all together for them and helps them get their life together.

Be the motivator for yourself first,

and then share it with someone else.

 

Make your life the BEST it can be…
