Your expectations could leave you feeling anxious. Your serenity is directly proportional to your acceptance of your life today.
8/27/11 Setting realistic goals helps us accomplish more. You may feel worried about getting everything done. Give yourself goals that are attainable, keeping in mind that whatever you accomplish is good enough. We are perfect in our imperfections, and less is more. Allow yourself to be imperfect and accept that this is part of human nature. Set limits and realize everything you do is an accomplishment.
8/26/11 Everything in the universe is made of energy. What differentiates one form from another is the speed at which it vibrates. Light is a very high frequency and a rock being low. Our thoughts and feelings determine our frequency and it goes out into the world, attracting energy moving at a similar frequency. A vibrant person is vibrating rapidly, as opposed to a negative and cynical person. Choose your focus and train yourself to be more alive and awake, causing a permanent shift in vibrancy.
If you don't like something, change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. A shift in perspective equals a miracle.
8/25/11 Positive thinking increases the chances of success in whatever you endeavor. Our words and ideas shape our lives and drive us toward happiness or distress. How you think has an effect on how well you perform and outcome of the goals set for yourself. It is within your power to become as happy, content, or successful as you make up your mind to be. Once you commit to positive thinking, you start believing and see success.
8/24/11 To have vision, you have to become a good listener. Vision starts from within. Do you know what stirs your heart or propels your life’s purpose? A truly valuable vision is not confined by your limited capabilities, but must include God. Have you looked beyond yourself? If you haven’t, you may be missing your true potential and life’s best for you. Discontent with “what is” is a great catalyst for vision. Sharpen your skills.
Even the smallest act of caring for another person is like a drop of water~it will make ripples throughout the pond.
8/23/11 What is selfishness? It can be having little or no thoughts of others. The real truth is that by getting out of self and giving to others, we receive freedom from the bondage of ourselves. To live harmoniously, we need to be supportive and helpful to all on our planet. Every day you can do something to make the world a better place. Ask for guidance and receive raining blessings of grace.
The world looks brighter from behind a smile; it increases your face value, reduces blood pressure, & reflects happiness.
8/22/11 Beauty is power; a smile is a sword. A smile is the light in the window of your face that tells people you are home. Sunshine is good for your teeth; and laughing is a smile that bursts out like a rainbow after the rain. Why not give a stranger one of your pearly smiles? It may be the only ray of sun they see today; brightening the darkest of days and sending it right back to you with a loving smileJ
8/21/11 The impact you have on the world is greater than you could ever imagine. Your choices affect the whole. Each of us carries the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still water, causing a ripple effect. Make that ripple positive, and spread waves of kindness that wash over the world.
8/20/11 Every transformation has a point of origin. Consider your thoughts and actions, and try to pay all good deeds forward. One act of charity or thoughtful message can pass from one person to another, snowballing until it becomes a group movement or the ray of hope that saves someone’s life. With your actions, become a tidal wave of love and kindness. Momentum grows onward and outward with power.
8/11/11 Learn to extend compassion to yourself first and then to others. Helping others can easily wear you out unless you make time to care for your own needs, physically and spiritually. By giving yourself the love you need, you provide yourself with strength and unconditional love required to selflessly support others. You increase lovingkindness when you give with a pure heart and increase the effect of compassion.
We need to have respect and love for all things and all people; for this generation and the generations to come. Leave a legacy of creation, not destruction.
8/10/11 Nature is the storehouse of potential life of future generations and is sacred. The earth is the source of all life. The sun shines life to earth, and the earth produces life in all forms. Everything here serves a part of everything else. We need to honor and respect our earth; she is the Mother of all life.

I believe everyday is a gift from our Creator. As we age, some may fear the unknown~death. People who become aware of their mortality find they have actually gained freedom to live. They have found they have an appreciation for the present. We are all here to contribute love, forgiveness, and service. As I age, I want to nourish my soul's purpose. If we are open to grace, people will appear in our lives to encourage growth of our souls. Allow me to provide daily nourishment through loving words, because joy is our birthright. I call these my daily "Truth Vitamins" for spiritual health. Join me in discovering together our inner soul purpose with "Love~that's all there is".
