AYD - March 7, 2014 - In Reflection Lies Great Treasure

"You can't turn back the clock.  But you can wind it up again."
- Bonnie Prudden

When is the last time you looked thru an old photo album?

This simple act will take you through a gauntlet of feelings and reactions.  From the standard, "OMG" thoughts at your youthful looks, to some awful hair, and 'wonder what they are doing now' -  you will then feel many different things as well.

Feelings for people, remembering emotional events, laughing and rekindling of feelings for moments you had not touched for a long time.

Life does that.  We move forward.  We stack new memories on top of those, and once in awhile we catch a glimpse of a corner and pull it out for review from under the pile.

I often reflect.   Sometimes, it settles me with some "Value Remembered" of moments, places, times and people.  Those moments give me more perspective and acceptance for when I recall some of the not so good - and the Values makes those dark ones not linger long at all.

I took but a moment this morning, and I looked at a few photos of a few friends from way back when.
And this brought me one of those movie like moments when our Protagonist gets their memory back and the scenes come rushing by and we see all the wonderful life shaping moments in their life and we feel the good feel ....  Ya, I took but a moment this morning, and I have to share with you - I have had alot of wonderful people come into my life, and it feels really good to gaze upon the treasures that a moment of reflection offers to me.

I took but a moment this morning, and I thank you for the richness this life has become.

Good morning, creates a greater day.
A greater you - well, you will be remembered in moments ongoing...far far away.

AYD - March 5, 2014 - Pressure on the Funny Bone

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
- Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Somedays - we may not find that inspired moment to kickstart the day.
Somedays - we may just be status quo and trust that  the inspirational drive find us on the way.
On those days, just make sure you are not speeding and also stop for alot of pee breaks so as not to be hard to find.

Today...is that someday. It happens.

Have a good morning, as it will offer you a greater day.
Show your greater you, as someone else may need to borrow a little of your great.

AYD - March 4, 2014 - A Time To Laugh

“I consider conversations with people to be mind exercises, but I don't want to pull a muscle, so I stretch a lot. That's why I'm constantly either rolling my eyes or yawning.” 
- Jaron Kintz, It Occured to Me

Perspective gives you Vision.
An open Mind gives you Wings.
Add a Laugh Track and you might just be unstoppable.

Find some humor in your day.  If you cannot find any, you are not using your true ability.

Good Morning,
Greater day.
Funny you, is better when shared.

AYD - March 3, 2014 - Monday Monday

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!”
- Audrey Hepburn

Not to be confused with the beginning of your worry, and anxious thoughts about the week, about work, about to do lists.
A beginning of positive choices.
A beginning of a new success list.

Take out a piece of paper, or start a word document on the computer.

Title it - "Successes this week."

I will give you the first one .... "Began the week strong and ready."

Now please... carry on, and fill the page.

Good morning, greater day.
Greater you, gives a great list of proof.
