We have so much to be thankful for. Gratitude, praise, and thanksgiving activate the divine laws of abundance. When the Universe can see we are conscious of and grateful for what we have, it is activated to shower us with more. [Iyanla Vanzant]
I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people. [John Lennon]
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Admittedly, I have a tendency to overbook myself or forget dates. This has, on more than one occasion, caused tension/headaches/irritation/etc... for myself and the parties I may have made plans with.
And I hate to be the one to have to break plans, even if it IS because of my poor schedule keeping.
The solution? Use the Google calendar feature and the calendar app on my iPhone. It's as simple as that. Really. I sit in front of a computer all day and I am rarely without my iPhone. There's no excuse for not being able to input dates/times/plans right when they're being made.
By doing so, I can save myself the embarrassment of overbooking and then having to admit to my failure.
I'm perfectly happy. I could die tomorrow. I feel like I've experienced so many things, and I've been so fortunate. I've had a great relationship in my life. I've had wonderful dogs. I've had a great career. I've had lots of things that have fulfilled me. I hope that I don't die tomorrow. There are other things that I'd like to do. I hope that I get to be a little bit wiser and smarter, and keep learning things.
A person who has good thought cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. [Roald Dahl]
I have a lot in my life that I should be grateful for...but rarely have I acknowledged that. And by not acknowleding what I am grateful for, I have allowed myself to become steeped in negativity, depression, and low self worth.
So, why not make a change for the better? There's too much good in the world to overlook.
