Acknowledge the good things you have in your life, your family, friends, your job, a roof over your head and having food on your table. Be grateful for all these things. Everyday across the world there are many without. Reinforce that gratitude in the things you do and say and in the way you treat others. Never forget the highest appreciation for what you have is to show gratitude.
Hold on Strong
One doesn’t know how much time is left
as the sands of life trickle through;
So, pack with care your case of life
And preserve the good and the true.
Place your laughter near the top
And bury sorrow down deep.
Put your worries and cares to one side
and good memories forever keep.
Place the wisdom and love above all,
Over everything else in the case.
They are the trophies won in the end
Over life’s battles you’ve faced.
Now gently close the lid with care
And wait for your Creator’s call.
Hold strong and steadfast to your case of life
and pray that you never falter or fall.
This poem is so meaningful, at a time when people across the world are still battling COVID. Like me many of you perhaps thought it would have been over by now. But the fight goes on. Stay safe my friends and hold on strong.
Riches is Not Always Measured by Money
Today I want to share this short inspirational story with you. How rich it is in today’s world to be protected not by walls, but rather by friends who care.
Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
It’s okay to be afraid of the unknown. There is not shame in that. However you cannot allow fear to hold you prisoner. You have to push past that fear and step into the unknown. To do this you must be prepared to get out of your comfort zone. It is the only way. Do the things necessary to achieve your goals in life. Even if it makes you uncomfortable, if it is necessary, you must do it. One step at a time, bit by bit you will come closer at attaining that goal.
Stay True to Yourself
A lot of people believe in order to fit in they have to follow the crowd, do what everyone else is doing even if it makes them uncomfortable. It doesn’t have to be that way though. It’s okay to be you. Do the things you believe in even if it is not the popular trend. Acceptance means people accept you for who you are and not who they want you to be.
Focus on the Good Things
Good morning beautiful people. Happy Friday. Hope you all have a great weekend. Remember to focus on the positive things in your lives!
Start Your Day on a Positive Note
The manner in which you begin your day often sets the tone for your entire day. It is therefore important that when you leave home you adapt a positive attitude. If you leave home feeling grumpy, miserable and have negative thoughts, you attract negative energy that could ruin your entire day. Despite how you may feel at the start of your day take a different approach. Be positive. Tell yourself no matter what happens today I will be in control. I will have a positive day. Things will go right. Today is going to be a wonderful day. Start with that positive energy and you will attract more positive energy. Try it and see!
Have a positive and productive day!
Form Good Habits
We all have habits. Some are good and some may be distructive vices. Bad habits are easily formed and are hard to get rid of. Take the person who starts smoking . A first it might just be an experiment, until it becomes a habit. And even then the person might say, “Oh it’s nothing. I can quit whenever I want to.” But the truth is, once that habit is formed, quitting is hard. Stay away from bad habits and form good ones instead. For example exercise regularly, read a book, take a few minutes each day to meditate. They more you practice doing these things the better your chance of making them daily habits. These are the habits that will do wonders for you.
