AYD - May 24, 2013 - Have a Little Fun... Seriously.

"Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside. "
- Mark Twain

Okay... and just to stir things up a bit... do some jumping jacks after that bowl of ice cream just to instigate the fight.  

Point is people,  we often spend far too much time worrying about something than the worry is really worth. We cannot be afraid of everything we have deemed "bad", or the fear will start to take over and cloud your judgement; as is the case when we worry too much about a tasty snack, or buying that shirt, or so many other simple little choices we trip over.  

The key is to not OVER indulge.  Set some limits for yourself.  Moderate your vices.  Enjoy little cheats so you don't wallow in self pity for having treated yourself.  

We create the pain in anticipation of the pain we will feel if we enjoy something.  We do not have to overthink it...just fix the think.(  Fix the Think...mine, mine I tell you all mine.).  

You will feel horrible if you eat that whole pizza... but you can enjoy a couple slices.   Have a great weekend...  

Good morning, Great day.
Greater you, is a greater day for me.

AYD - May 23, 2013 - You Get to Be Right

"Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right."
- Henry Ford

Sometimes simplicity gets lost in the clutter, and what we need to believe, is right there for us to see.

Think about it.  Run with it.

Good Morning, Great Day.
Greater You, is a better environment for all those around you.

AYD - May 22, 2013 - What Boosts Your Enthusiasm?

"We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about. "
- Charles Kingsley, 1819- 1875

Would you not agree, that we are often distracted by the shiny?  Or by the new and improved must have it? Many of us guage our success by what we have got... by our stuff. 

We catagorize our achievement by where we are on the money scale ... what we have accumulated... or what we can "afford".   Not to take away from the enjoyment all of our stuff gives us ... I just like to be reminded of the root feeling that really gets us moving. 

Something in your life that gets your energy levels pumping up, that gets your effort into gear, that gets your heart involved.  

So, your challenge today is to ask yourself the obvious - What makes you enthusiastic?  What gets you to that place where it is hard to contain yourself?   What do you have to be enthusiastic about in your life?   What do you approach in your day with enthusiasm?  One thing...or all things?   

en·thu·si·asm -  [en-thoo-zee-az-uhm] noun
1. absorbing or controlling possession of the mind by any interest or pursuit; lively interest: He shows marked enthusiasm for his studies.

2. an occupation, activity, or pursuit in which such interest is shown: Hunting is his latest enthusiasm.

3. any of various forms of extreme religious devotion, usually associated with intense emotionalism and a break with orthodoxy.

Good morning, great day. Great You, means a better environment for all those around you.   Pierre Couturier Enthusiastic Husband, Enthusiastic Daddy, and Author of my day... Enthusiastically.

AYD - May 21, 2013 - A Simple Choice

A simple start to our day ... Pause in the hurry that is a morning schedule ... embrace either physically, or just emotionally, all that you have in your life.

Health, Family, Spouse, Children.

Recognize those people and things that bring value to life. 

Let go of stress and moments that dominate us with distraction from what really matters.

Let go of things that are truly petty when compared to the list of what you truly value.

We must pause and reorganize our thoughts, feelings and emotions sometimes.  Like a reset button, we sometimes just have to put things back in perspective.

Good Morning, Great Day.
Great you, is a better is a better influence on those around you.
