Thoughts for the Day . . .

“I may not be able to change
the circumstances of my life
but I can change the conversation.” 

It’s not how you react, but how you interrupt it. 

Today . . .

I shape my perception of things. 

I choose how to respond.

 

Creating our Tomorrows

creating_tomorrows
We all know the saying ….”What we give out, we get back.” We can either give or get out of fear or love.
It’s your choice.
In this moment, your feelings, thoughts and actions are what you are creating for your tomorrows.  If you waste time on negative thinking, judging people, busying yourself with trivial matters, letting your emotions run your life or limiting yourself in any way, you are planning what is going to happen in your life tomorrow and the next day and the next.
Each and every thought you think is creating your future. When you think a negative thought it limits you and just adds to the pile of other negative thoughts that go through your head on a daily basis. This only makes us feel worse about ourselves and limits our future positive thoughts.
Isn’t it wonderful to know that you have control over this? You can change your life just by adjusting what you think. When you spend time thinking of negative things you don’t want, you are doing yourself a dis-service. That only make you more upset and unhappy. It takes you out of the “flow”. Negative thoughts only create more of what you don’t want.

“The only thing that ever limits us is our thinking.”

These thoughts are now in the past. And since the past has no power over us, every thought that we choose to think today could bring endless opportunities for our future. Just think of how wonderful it would be to think positive thoughts every day.
We can create a happy and fulfilling life just by changing our thoughts about ourselves, our bodies, our friends, our associates, family members and the world.  Watch every day turn into a joyous and successful experience. And we can do all of this just by changing our thoughts.
It’s so simple.
Start by using positive affirmations. Whenever a negative thought comes into your mind, stop and tell it “Thanks for stopping by . . . ” Then change that thought into a positive one. Train your thoughts to think things that make you feel joyful and positive instead of feeling negative.  Try it and see how you feel today.
“The past is over and done and has no power over me. I can begin to be free in this moment. Today’s thoughts create my future. I am in charge. I now take my own power back. I am safe and I am free.”

Life is a Miraculous Journey

Today I am open to the presence of miracles!!
~ Deepak Chopra ~

There are Miracles that happen all around us every day. If our minds are busy chattering, like in the story of the Two Birds, we may not notice these miracles coming into our lives. But, when we are aware, they are like gifts given to us, waiting to be opened and shared. When we learn to live each day connected to our present awareness, the miracles in our lives will increase and you will begin to know yourself at the core.
Think of it this way . . . It’s like a seed you want to cultivate and grow.  In order to do that we need to take time with it each day.  It needs water, soil and sunshine. It is a precious gift that will sprout when we shower it with love and light to expand and grow into a tree before our eyes.
What miracles do you see around and in your life? Abundance? Love? Gratitude?
What thoughts do you think that inhibit your ability to see miracles? Negative thoughts get in the way of your miracles, abundance and loving relationships. Set your intention that anything is possible.
What steps can you take to open yourself up to experiencing more miracles? Stay positive, meditate, and be present. Open your mind and heart to ALL the possibilities.

Every day, stand with your arms open and say,
“I am open and receptive to all the good and the abundance in the Universe. And thank you for life!”
