Waking UP with Gratitude

“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”~ Marcel Proust

As I was driving yesterday to get out, let my hair blow with all the windows down and the sunroof open, I listened to the CD – “The Secret”.  I kept replaying the part about waking up grateful for today, and thinking about all the things we are grateful for.  I know I do this on a subconscious level, but I decided to do it first and foremost before setting my two feet on the floor this morning. Lying in bed, I took a deep breath and let it out. I did this several times. This got my mind focused and centered in gratefulness. I said out loud ” I am so happy and grateful for today. Thank you for blessing me with……”  I listed what I’m thankful for. I didn’t make the list long, but my major points. (smile)

I feel so happy that I started my day out this way. Sometimes I write in my journal what I’m grateful for, but this was different. This brought me to FEEL it. Give it a try!  You will be happy you did.

Love and Light,

Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say

words have power……And that’s the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.

Not everyone means everything they say. This is a tough life lesson to learn, especially to those people who grew up instilled with principles of honesty and integrity deeply embedded in their psyche. As we face the real world, we would like to think that everyone is honest, and has the best intentions, but this is simply not true. We have to take the world for what it is.

This doesn’t mean that we should go around being dishonest just because everyone else is but it does mean that we shouldn’t be so naive to believe that what everyone says is true.

An old saying might be a little too harsh but it is something to think about “Believe only half of what you see, and none of what you hear.” Learn to trust those who only deserve your trust and no one who doesn’t.
This is  a tough lesson for me. One that I’m still learning….
