…that we yearn for more love, more connectedness?
Perhaps it’s to help us remember to love others, to connect more.
(And, it’ll come back to us many, many-fold!)
Do it today.
How ‘bout what Mike Dooley says?
“Do you know what happens in time and space just before something really incredible happens? Something mind-blowing? Just before a really HUGE dream comes true?
At least not in the physical world.
So if, perchance, it appears that absolutely nothing is happening in your life right now… consider it a sign.”
To be aware
And to know
That the Divine presence
Is the source and substance
Of all your good.
Get acquainted with the riches
Of your subconscious mind.
The menu of you:
You really can have it all.
Just make up your mind and order.
Voila. Live it today!
Love you, you cool, wonderful one!,
People just want to feel good about themselves.
And that is your opening!
When you show love,
When you tell them something positive about themselves
You change their life,
It’s all about love.
If you ever hear that thought, that you haven’t gotten enough done,
That you are too easily bothered, that you are not nice enough?
Don’t believe any of it.
Start listing all the wonderful things you are.
Kind and caring
Full of love.
That will give you joy?
That will teach you something incredible?
That will give you peace?
That will change your life?
Greeting strangers with a “hello,” or a “hi,” and a smile?
Stopping in your morning leaving from your family, and telling them you love them?
Saying “Good morning,” to each and every co-worker, staffer, and patient you pass today?
Getting coffee for someone else when you get your coffee?
Asking someone you meet if you can buy them a coffee?
Hugging each and every member of your family when you get home in the evening?
Today is the day.
Have the BEST-EVER day!
Fear shows up in the sneakiest of ways.
Sometimes doubt, sometimes grumpy.
Sometimes sad, sometimes anger.
It has been said that fear is
Still, our fear might help us find our wisdom.
And our strength.
And our ability to flip the thoughts and feelings
To what we are grateful for.
Gratitude is an amazing antidote to doubt, grumpy, sad, anger.
Maybe so, IF…
You feel fearful.
You forget to be straight-forward and honest.
You go along with things you feel bad about.
Give the fear to God. (Over & over if you need to.)
Give the worry to God. (Over & over if you need to.)
Answer and state everything in truth.
(If you cannot, don’t know how… just don’t say anything.)
Walk away if you must, and AVOID going along with ANYTHING
That feels wrong, bad, scary, not YOU.
Don’t lose another day of your time in this wonderful world.
