For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Saturday Meditations


Taken entirely from Daily Celebrations - I just thought this was so good - I wanted to share the whole thing with you.

"Nothing is impossible, unless you think it is." ~ Paramahansa Yogananda

Dwell in possibilities.

The Jains sect of India discuss philosophy with the doctrine of syadvada, the "perhaps method:" For any question, there are 353 different viewpoints. To any discussion or perspective, the
thoughtful reply is "perhaps," or "maybe it is and maybe it isn't."

Granted, syad-vada sounds a bit "wishy-washy" because it allows you to say yes, no, maybe, and 350 other things at the same time. But the basic concept also allows you to EXPAND the way you problem- solve. And come up with solutions outside the box.

Marcel Proust wrote: "The only true voyage of discovery, the only really rejuvenating experience would not be to visit strange lands,but to possess other eyes, to see the universe through the eyes of another, of a hundred others, to see the hundred universes that each of them sees."

If you have a problem or are searching for answers, look at the situation through the eyes of another. Consider the possibilities. Open your heart and mind to the options.

"If you tell a person they should have done something, they will come up with 50 reasons why they couldn't have," explained writer Hendrie Davis Weisinger. "Change your should statements to could. It creates options for people, making it easier for them to improve and to change."

Imagine what you COULD do...
Impossible = I'm possible
Isn't this a great one? Again, this was completely taken from Daily Celebrations.com"

Chatty
