Life is not made up of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years, but of moments. You must experience each one before you can appreciate it. Faith is the very first thing you should pack in a hope chest. The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers
But above all
The world needs dreamers who do. Success in life is not how well we execute Plan A; it's how smoothly we cope with Plan B. Not having money to spend doesn’t mean we can’t have well-spent moments every day. (42) Always remember, it’s simply not an adventure worth telling if there aren’t any dragons. This is how women self-sabotage and self-destruct. Unless we have constant witnesses to our hard work, we are convinced we pull off every day of our lives through smoke and mirrors. (27) Let passion be your muse. Let her guide and teach you to trust your instincts. Celebrate the Sacred in the ordinary. Every day offers us simple gifts when we are willing to search our hearts for the place that's right for each of us. (January 15) Learning to live in the present moment is part of the path of joy. Live for the event, not the outcome. Remember, no matter what life throws at us, we can always bake a cake! Always remember that striving and struggling precede success, even in the dictionary. Never forget that all you have is all you need. If you want your life to come together, you have to start treating yourself better. Each day offers us the gift of being a special occasion if we can simply learn that as well as giving, it is blessed to receive with grace and a grateful heart. Any self-prompt that reminds you to focus on flow not ebb, contributes to your greater sense of abundance. (53) You only live once—but if you work it right, once is enough. —JOE E. LEWIS Not every one of our desires can be immediately gratified. We’ve got to learn to wait patiently for our dreams to come true, especially on the path we’ve chosen. Little changes [and] little choices add up to be revolutionary changes in your life. You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. Whether you realize it or not, you have lived many lives, and each one has left an indelible mark on your soul. Sometimes a person has to go back, really back—to have a sense, an understanding of all that’s gone to make them—before they can go forward. —PAULE MARSHALL Each life experience leaves a layer of memory like a deposit of sediment: things we’ve loved and moments of contentment we’ve cherished that when recalled, reveal glimmers of our true selves. The key to loving how you live is in knowing what it is you truly love. Consider the track record of your naysayers. How many dreams have they successfully brought into this world? If it’s not authentically you, live without it. One can never change the past, only the hold it has on you,” Merle Shain reassures us, “and while nothing in your life is reversible, you can reverse it nevertheless. There is no companion so companionable as Solitude,” Thoreau reminds me as I carry a hot cup of tea back to bed. Take a risk a day—one small or bold stroke that makes you feel great once you have done it. Your heart will always tell you what’s working and what’s not. Realize the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you if you hold on to it. Let the past go. A simply abundant world awaits. Simple abundance, 1: an inner journey; 2: a spiritual and practical course in creative living; 3: a tapestry of contentment We should only strive to be first-rate versions of ourselves. And our best is always good enough. I’ve got a good feeling that this coming year is going to be your best yet. Heaven knows you deserve it. Love yourself first and everything else falls into line,” Lucille Ball advised. “You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world. A sobering thought: what if, right at this very moment, I am living up to my full potential? —JANE WAGNER Today, be willing to believe that a companion Spirit is leading you every step of the way, and knows the next step. Let go of limiting illusions that have held you back from knowing that just to be alive is a grand thing. Your diamonds are not in far distant mountains or in yonder seas; they are in your own backyard, if you but dig for them. —RUSSELL H. CONWELL Sidetracked women, who scatter their energies to the four winds, never achieve serenity. (Nervous breakdowns, to be sure, but not serenity.) It’s as simple as that. I was learning to differentiate between my needs and my wants and this powerful lesson had to be mastered before I could move forward. Invite Divine Order into your life today and a more serene tomorrow will unfold. When we realize gratefully that we can live by our own lights if we access the Power. Ask for it. Claim it. Today. Regret is the only wound from which the soul never recovers Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it. —BUDDHA So it is with the concerto of our lives. Individual notes must be learned and played and practiced before we achieve harmony. And above all, we must learn how to pause.
Since you are like no other being ever created since the beginning of time, you are incomparable,
Start thinking of yourself as an artist and your life as a work-in-progress.
Every day we’re given chances to embrace the new.
How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.
It’s a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it. —SOMERSET MAUGHAM
This I can report from the front lines: life never calms down long enough for us to wait until tomorrow to start living the lives we deserve. Today you may not be familiar with the happiness habit. But like any new behavior, happiness can be learned.
