Awaken Your Day – Mar 29 - Gifts aplenty.

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.”
- Marie Curie

It had taken me a long time.
A long time to understand what gifts I possessed.
And then, when I stopped clouding myself with desperation, and took a moment to breathe, it was all so clear.
When you give in to a moment and believe in yourself, and wrap yourself up in that blanket of belief, draw closer to you those who believe in you as well … then you can begin to watch the transformation take shape.

It is then that even the costs we encounter seem so minimal to the abundance that comes our way.

Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater You - finding the gifts within.

AYD - Mar 28 - reviewing, reliving, repeating things we have shared. So many little pieces form the foundation platform I want to live by. So many pieces to Awaken the better in us all.

Awaken Your Day - Monday March 28, 2016 - Seeds You Plant
( Originally posted Aug 5, 2009)

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant."
- Robert Louis Stevenson

Recently it came to my attention, how very little effort it took to create the beginning of a positive interaction in our lives. We made friends with our neighbors. It is not that it was hard, it actually stands out because it was rather easy to do. But the planting of that seed makes you see how much easier life is when you take the moment and the sincerity to do so.

And, of course, as these thoughts passed over my overactive mind, I also thought of the other seeds we have planted...and the positive relationships that make our life more enjoyable because of them. And then, thoughts of those friends who took the time to get to know us first.

It is a very good feeling to carry with you ... when you see the seeds you plant, grow into a solid relationship; working or daily acquaintance or personal friend.

There was a time in my life when I had to honestly say there was really not many people I could count on. Today, I would have to say, I have a "garden" that many would envy.
And I am thankful.

Good morning. Get planting.

AYD - Mar 27 - keeping it simple today and not overthinking.

Awaken Your Day - Monday, March 21, 2016 - Easily Said, Easily Done

"If you start today to do the right thing, you are already a success even if it doesn't show... yet."
- John Maxwell

Keep it simple. Keep it Easy to understand. One step forward.
Sometimes, we need to remind ourselves that success, be it toward a goal, or just a good day - it need not be over thunk to be reachable.
Yes, I said "thunk". And now you will too. As you start your day with the right thoughts and actions to get you where you need to be.

Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater You because you Can.

AYD - March 26 - when the ambition part of the brain is sparking but not catching fire - we look back on inspired thoughts of yesterday’s to light the way.

AYD - March 26, 2014 - Friendship and All it Means

“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; i...t is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is a great discussion. Friendship.
More than that, it is a great feeling.
I cannot say much more than that this morning without muddying the whole thing.
Call a friend. Share some laughs. Spread some forgiveness. Keep what matters close to mind.
There is an element of you that breathes because friends appreciate it and share in it.
Call a friend.

Good Morning, Greater day.
Greater you, is a map for others to see how to be greater too.
