Good Morning My Friends,

Today’s message will focus on the power within us all to be happy and enjoy each day. It’s a gift.
SEEKING and STRIVING
“I am seeking, I am striving. I am in it with all my heart.” (Vincent Van Gogh)
Greatness springs from deep commitment. Yet, as much as we may want to commit to greatness, our lives don’t always seem to cooperate. We still have to get up every day and make breakfast, go to work, run errands, clean the house—all the quotidian activities that take up so much of our time.  The solution is a simple one: commit fully to even he most mundane tasks. We can live our life, every part of it, in every moment, with all our heart. The alternative is to live much of our life without passion.
NOTE TO SELF:  I will consider each day as a gift to be embraced with everything I have.
Go into each day positive and hopeful. But be realistic, knowing that most days will not go exactly as you planned. If you become stressed because you are off schedule, frustrated because someone offended you, or upset because your child wouldn’t eat breakfast, you are giving away your power. Too many people these days have the wrong approach to life. They think they can’t be happy unless they control all their circumstances and everything goes their way. That’s not realistic. You have to come to the place where you can say, “I don’t have to have my way to have a good day. My plans don’t have to work out for me to be happy. Everybody does not have to treat me right for life to be enjoyable. I have already made up my mind: No matter what does or doesn’t happen, I will stay in peace and enjoy this day.” No circumstances can take your peace. No interruption can take your enthusiasm. You have to give it away. The next time you’re tempted to be upset or frustrated, ask yourself, Is this worth giving my power away? (Joel Osteen)
The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows. (Buddha)
In closing remember:  Today is a perfect day just to be happy” (The Power of Positivity)
Wishing everyone a very Happy week
