4/30/12 Celebration is the feast of life, and the kind of food we all need. Each of us brings a special recipe or offering, and together we make a great feast. Celebration is a human need that cannot be denied. It is richer and fuller when many work and celebrate together. Acknowledge the unique ingredients that make you the most valued dish!
4/29/12 Life is full of infinite possibilities. Don’t expect others to be more, better, and different than they are. This mind-set causes dissatisfaction. You are right where you are supposed to be right now! The most important moment is now! It is the moment that never ends. Don’t waste time trying to be someone else or elsewhere! Live…
Obstacles don't have to stop you as you pursue your goals. Go through the problem, not around it! Never give up.
4/28/12 It is a challenge to keep a positive attitude and a measure of faith when you are in the midst of difficulties. You may benefit from times of struggle in order to grow and learn. If nothing is going right, however, see if there is a change you can make to alleviate the problem. As you take responsibility for the things you can change, it is easier to surrender to the things you can’t. This too shall pass!
4/27/12 It may seem tempting to seek approval from others, but you gather long-lasting acceptance by accepting yourself. By drawing confidence from within, you acquire security and self-assurance that cannot be taken from you by anyone. The Kingdom of God is within you. Look to your soul for acceptance, and you will find that a sense of peace and balance isn’t dependent on an external force.
4/26/12 Desire is a powerful motivator and guide. You have the opportunity to unearth desires that may be covered over with years of fear. You only need to be willing to fight for their fulfillment. Desire is a catalyst for radical change. This is no dress rehearsal; life is happening now. Your time is now. Become fully engaged in your life, living with a greater purpose and meaning!
To love is to let those we love be themselves, and not twist them into our perfect image. Otherwise we only love the reflections of ourselves we find in them.
4/25/12 Everyone in our lives is a mirror reflecting back to us the parts we like and dislike about ourselves. We can grow if we have the courage to recognize the reflections and acknowledge the needed change. Life is a collaborative effort, and we must be comfortable in our partnerships with others in order to be comfortable with ourselves. Enjoy life by experiencing joy together!
4/24/12 Love grounds you. Love brings your awareness to others and yourself. It opens your mind and heart, giving you balance. When you choose to be kind instead of being selfish, your anger turns to appreciation. Your jealousy will turn to gratitude and your resentments turn to forgiveness. When your deeds harm others, you are living in fear. Love calls you to live in harmony and balance. Why not?
4/23/12 You are fully alive when you are helping others. Life is worthwhile when you learn to love and serve others unselfishly. You are going to give your life to something. Will it be a career, hobby, or wealth? Service is the pathway to real significance. What matters is not the duration of your life, but the donation of it. It is not how long you lived, but how you lived!
4/22/12 Spending time alone and connecting with your inner wisdom can give you the insight to better understand life. There is a loving advisor who resides deep in your soul and holds all the answers to live more in the present. When you quiet your mind, you connect with that inner wisdom. Powerful insight awaits you by turning your attention inward and connecting to the wisdom that has always been there and resided within you.
Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep, and the only way to retain it is to give it away.
4/21/12 Edward Hale said, “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something I can do.” Talking is not expensive nor does it require much effort, but real love is costly. Real love flows through us and it requires some time and effort. Why not give some love away, and in turn receive it back? It is worth the effort.
