Just Another January



Quote of the day: 

If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves. 
-Thomas Edison



One of my plans for the month was to read at least six books -I am currently on my seventh one. Looks like that goal is coming along nicely.

What have you got planned for the coming month? This might be a good time to create a plan, in case you haven't done so already.

The month of January ends the day after today.

Time is ticking. You've got more potential than you think you do.
Time to prioritize things in your life.
Time to prioritize relationships in your life.

Your priorities should not extend to people who don't have time for you. 

Recognize that you have faults and that's it's okay to have them -no one can be that perfect.

Lastly, we should be grateful to the mirror for showing us only our appearance -not our character. Lord knows, we might not be able to stomach it.


Just another January gone. February...here we come!


Peace. Love. Blessings*

Duality



Quote of the day: 
I wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge, silence to be ignorance, and affection to be art. 
-Khalil Gibran 



I dislike your views.
Not your personality.

I love your emotions.
Not your sexuality.

I embrace your flaws.
Not your vices.

I condone your ideas.
Not your negativity.

I relate with your struggles.
Not your voice.



Peace & Love*

You Should Seek A Little Sunshine Everyday


Quote of the day: 
Take heed: you do not find what you do not seek.
- English Proverb


An image of the sun

So when you wake up in the morning, and get ready for the day ahead what occupies your mind the most? Is it plans you have for the day, or you are still sulking over yesterday's failed plans?

A new day offers the opportunity to make actually be better than you were yesterday. And why spend a day doing nothing when you could actually be achieving a lot.

In the mornings you can make a decision whether to have a good day or a bad one, you can decide what you want to eat, what clothes to wear, and so on. You make choices that affect your general well being.

So why would you want someone else to take control of your emotions?
If you easily get angry over little things or little people -that says a lot about your general state of mind.

It's time to engage yourself in positive things and values, time to get a clarity and take hold of your feelings about people, life and relationships. Time to dust your shoulders off and get back to being the 'old happy you.'

Lastly always seek that which gives you personal growth...like a flower seeking sunshine.

Do away with negative associations, connect with positive people today, It will help to expand your capabilities and keep you growing.

Poem: Two Clouds And A Sun


Quote of the day: 

We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
-Frederick Keonig


An image of a cloudy sky

'Why do you always move so slow'?

...the sun asked a nearby passing cloud.
'I'm taking my time to enjoy the view,' the cloud replied.
Smiling, it waved and went along while humming a tune.

What a happy cloud, the sun thought. And smiled back :)

The next day another cloud passed by.

The sun blurted out 'let me guess, taking your time to enjoy the view'?
'No, I'm not. I wish I could go faster, arrrgh I hate it all', the cloud replied.
And went along with so much anger brewing inside.

What a sad cloud, the sun thought :(


Food for thought:
Your moods can affect those around you -even complete strangers.

Stretch Your Mind And Abilities Into Momentum



Quote of the day: 

I would not waste my life in friction when it could be turned into momentum. 
~Frances Willard

Image of clouds from a bird-eye view

STRETCH! 

Such a common word, but it speaks volumes about the ability of man to withstand his problems, or get consumed by them either way. In order for us to expand our abilities we have got to climb our walls of limitations.

But it's all in the mind, this thing called limitations. Repeat after me...It's all in my mind*

What legacy do you want to leave behind in this world before you go?

Don't live a life of 'what ifs'. Instead, picture each day as an experiment in a scientific laboratory..and guess who the scientist is? Yes YOU are!

Try out everything and anything you wish, experiment, make mistakes, laugh at yourself even.

But do take a step back once in a while.
...to get a better look at the full picture of your life.

Above all, never waste your life in friction. Only momentum...


Peace. Love. Light*

The Preparation


Quote of the day:
You need a plan to build a house. To build a life, it is even more important to have a plan or goal. – Zig Ziglar


What are those things you are looking at doing differently this time around? And what are those things that you would have to let go -in order for your goals to be achievable?

For you, is it a new year to elevate your current position in life-or is it just another cycle of repetitions, of doing the same things and expecting different outcomes.

You need a plan. We all do.

Make weekly, monthly and yearly plans. Short and medium term goals which will encompass a much broader long term goal for you (2-5 years for example).

So all in all -
*Little things make up great things in the end.
*Start small, start with little goals, little changes you'd like to accomplish.

It is a well known fact that people with clear, written goals accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without any whatsoever.

It's the start of new beginnings, so be prepared.
Make it happen!
