Happy Monday My Friends,
Do you find yourself sometimes, just going through the motions? Like it’s just the same routine day after day? If you were to take a minute right now and look around you, what might you be able to see or do differently. Life is a precious gift and how sad that we do not find pleasure sometimes in just the smallest of things. For instance, how great was it to see the sun today? How great it felt to be able to get in your car and drive to work and not be home bedridden with a debilitating illness? Today’s message will I hope inspire all to, as the saying goes, “STOP and smell the roses.”
“One may have good eyes and yet see nothing.” (Italian Proverb)
Driving the same roads over and over, we stop noticing the people, homes, yards and buildings along the way. We work with the same people for years but never see them as anything more than a reflection of the work they do. We’ve gotten so used to doing things a certain way, we can’t see that there are better ways of doing these things—if we would just open our eyes. To truly see what’s around us, we have to make an effort. Life is too short to take the world for granted.
NOTE TO SELF:
I will deliberately open my eyes to the world.
The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain. (Dolly Parton)
The empires of the future are the empires of the mind. (Winston Churchill)
Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. (Napoleon Hill)
When you come to a roadblock, take a detour. (Mary Kay Ash)
Once you choose hope, anything’s possible. (Christopher Reeve)
Wishing everyone a wonderful week,
