AYD - March 14, 2014 - Adventure Awaits

“The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.” 
- Oprah Winfrey

Step One:   Dream.

Without hesitation, or 'What If' or 'Could never be' etc....  Just allow the Dream.

Step Two:  Simply enjoy the idea of it.  Roll with it. Imagine it. Be free to see it.

Step Three:  Ask, "Why not?"

Good Morning, Greater Day.
Greater You, tries doors you previously assumed locked.

AYD - March 12, 2014 - I Can Count

“It's not how many friends you can count, it's how many of those you can count on.” 
- Anthony Liccione

I am not so vain as to think I have a perfect track record.
There have been times I am sure I was a let down rather than a lift up.
As I have gotten older, wiser and scarred from being let down myself ... awareness and wisdom have come to stand beside me and offer a better perspective and vantage point.
I like to think, I have become better overall, at being a reliable friend.

I may not always call.  Life may hurry me around.  But should they need me, I hope they know.

Our thoughts go through our rolodex and we pause on each face and name to ponder if that person would be there to carry you through a time ... but may I make a suggestion?  Ask first how many of our friends would put a check mark by our name ? 

Good morning, greater day.
Greater You, is a great influence on others.

AYD - March 11, 2014 - Perspective

“One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.” 
- Sigmund Freud

Think of a time or event in your life, long ago maybe, when you experienced some hardship.  A trying time.  A rough patch.  A rough year.

Where are you now?  How did you get past that time, and wind up here?
If you ran into a period like that again, do you have the strength and knowledge to get you through?

What if you simply faced new adversity?  New challenges...  would the growth you have seen since that time, aid you in standing tall now ... would you be well equipped to take on the challenge.

I think so.  Starting right now.  There is nothing today on any dark horizon that is harder than the combined struggles you faced in the past , to stand here today.

Remember your victories, and you will find the path to overcome any stress today.

Good morning, great day.
Greater you, is a picture for others to study.

AYD - March 10, 2014 - You Make a Mark

“So you never know who you touch. You never know how or when you'll have an impact, or how important your example can be to someone else"
- Denzel Washington

Just being you.
There is no mathematical equation and no textbook study to confirm it.
There is no right or wrong really.
When it comes to the opportunity you have, just by being you, to touch someone's life with those elements that make you shine. 
There is no way of knowing  how your shine will assist them in finding their own light.  But it does.  Know that.  Feel good about that.

Just know that every good thought and action that surrounds the definition of "you" ... is on "Automatic Share".   It has a constant supply of energy, as long as you do.

Monday ... is a good day ... to surprise yourself with how much light you have to give.

Good morning,Greater day.
Greater you ... well, we know what that does.
