Today, I give thanks to God for giving me intuition to follow my heart. I have been working on a book for the last couple of years titled, “Break Free From Your Reins.” It is currently in final editorial review for publication. I am so grateful to be doing what I love best.. helping others. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Everyone has something to offer in this world. Pay attention to everyone, because we learn from each other. We attract many different people into our lives consciously or unconsciously. By observing and/or listening carefully to others, you may be inspired by someone, or you may be reminded that not everyone is at the same level of awareness as you. Either way, be grateful for whomever crosses your path, because there is always room for self-improvement. My little grandson teaches me to be happy for no reason.
As I celebrated my 60th birthday this past weekend, I realized something. Why do we wait for that special day to come around once a year to celebrate? We should be celebrating every day like it is our birthday (maybe minus the cake). Oh and be proud of your age. We are all so hung up on looking young, but we need to face the facts that one day we are all going to get old and die. Besides, it’s what’s inside that counts. I still feel as young as when I was in my 30’s, but I must say, I am a lot more wiser now from my life experiences. I believe if you have a positive attitude, you will age gracefully. Life is good; we’re alive and well, so be happy and grateful for every day!
Pssst… the key to having it all is knowing you already have it!
Everyone and everything was created by the same source. Therefore, we are all connected to the source by the same source energy. This source energy is in human beings, animals, trees, plants, etc. Animals have a very close connection with the source. They are unlike humans who sometimes allow their minds or thoughts to get in the way of their connection. I have an adorable little Maltese named Oscar. We may not behave the same or have the same physical attributes, but we definitely have a spiritual connection. He is such a loving and faithful little guy. He is my best friend.
When all else fails, and you truly want to help yourself, reconnect with God (or whatever you call the entity or source from which you were created). Ask for help. You will receive the power, strength, and love from the source to overcome the obstacles you are currently facing in life. Don’t be stubborn, because it is impossible to do it alone. When you reconnect with the source and have the fundamental belief that you really can do this, anything is possible.
I am promoting creativity, style, and purpose today. Below are two exquisite abstracts recently painted by creative and talented artist Anthony J. Parise from Los Angeles, CA. Of course, the photographs do not do justice to these two pieces. If you’re interested in his artwork, please get in touch with me.
Why are we so hard on ourselves? Sometimes we treat other people better than we treat ourselves. At times, we may feel we’re not good enough. We need to focus on progression instead of perfection. Accept yourself, be kind and gentle with yourself, lift yourself up, respect yourself, believe in yourself, encourage yourself, be grateful for yourself, and love yourself!
