Awaken Your Day - May 10, 2017 - Precious

(Repost from 2008, June 19)
"If everybody could understand how precious one day is, everybody would be more successful."
- Martin Latulippe, Speaker and Luminary

Often, a statement like this needs an example to help us see the full meaning. We could go on and on trying to find that one perfect mental picture that would tap into our emotions and trigger our understanding. We are all different in how we absorb a message like this.

So why don't we just sit back for a moment or three, and let the things that we hold precious in our life run through the picture window like a movie. Allow the meaningful moments to linger.
Focus on what matters. Feel their value for a moment. A dedicated moment.

 Do not revisit conflicts, or hurt feelings. Do not catch yourself wishing for other things beyond what you have or what you have achieved.

Right now is about , right now. We need to touch how precious today is.

One of my dreams now is to continue living this life I have right now as it gets better and better with each new piece of understanding that I am given. I feel I am becoming more and more the man that my earlier circumstances often dictate I would never be. Having that awareness is my tool to help me understand how precious today is.

I wish for you today, one more piece of your own understanding, and with it, ten more moments of value that you can feel.

Good morning, greater Day. Greater You - feeling every moment's value.

Awaken Your Day - May 8, 2017 - On your mark! Get Set!

"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

And then, I am speechless. When the obvious hits you square between the eyes, really, what is there to say? Should you say anything? Or should you choose to spend a quiet moment with the realization that is around you like a healing cloud, and let it sink in.

I am talking about Enthusiasm. It is a choice. It is often the road forgotten because the road signs pointing you in the better feeling direction are obscured by the clutter we attach to our vision like magnets on a fridge.

Read Charles' words again. How much different is your day, more importantly how much more improved is your focus when you approach your day, your job, your task ... with Enthusiasm?
I say - enough to make it worth your time and energy. Enough to heal what ails you. Enough to change your experience and in so doing, change you for the better.

So... Monday. Instead of thinking about work and how much money you make and the comfort and luxury it brings... think about how good you are at what you do. Think Enthusiastically about your skills, what you bring. Do this with your work, your sport, your music and hobbies and teaching and outlook and breathing and your laughter and your sharing and...

your life.

Enthusiasm is that ingredient that improves everything you experience - Pierre
Good morning, Greater Day. Greater You - adding a new ingredient to everything you cook up in life.
