The True You

 

Freedom in nature

You have the power to become the person you want to be.
Create your own path, one that is best suited for you.
This path will take hard work, self management and trust that you can do anything.  We may all be the same but we are unique individuals in your own way.

Stay true to you and be confident in who you are and who you can be.

Gratitude

Fourth of July.

The day the Declaration of Independence
was adopted by the Continental Congress in 1776.

Today and every day, I want to thank all sons and daughters,
brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers,
grandfathers and grandmothers, great-grandparents,
great-great-grandparents who served
and are still serving in our military.

Today we celebrate your courage and determination.

We are a grateful nation.

Positive Thinking

Meadow at the Fullerton Arboretum

If you come upon a road block…go around.

If you come to the end of a road…start a new trail.

Take a deep breath, place one foot in front of the other and don’t look back.

Positive Thinking – 5. “Give Thanks”

“Give Thanks Every Day”

Give Thanks every morning to the Creator for allowing you to enjoy another beautiful day.  If your time is coming to a close, give thanks for the time you had to love and be loved.  Cherish the warm sun on your face everyday.  Savor all that nature has to offer:  feel the wind on your skin, smell the fragrances of different flowers in a meadow, watch the leaves from a tree dance in the wind, listen to the birds sing or water trickling down a stream, taste the sweet juices from freshly picked fruit and enjoy the sunset at the end of another beautiful day.

Give thanks to those who have shown you kindness when your need was strong.  Help a stranger in need, no matter how small the deed and expect nothing in return.

Give thanks every evening to the Creator for giving you another spectacular day and know the promise of tomorrow is always there.

Positive Thinking – 3. “Focus Within”

“Focus Within On Positive Thoughts To Start The Flow”

Plant Leaf Underside

Focus on your positive thoughts and/or feelings and bring them to your center.  Try to stay focused and centered on all things that are right in your life no matter how small.  When you are calm and at peace with your own inner thoughts you will begin to radiate an invisible light.  A light that people who are open and ready to receive will see and feel the warmth of that light.   Continue reading
