For 2018

"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

Today's meditation:
"A man's feet must be planted in his country, but his eyes should survey the world."
"When the student is ready, the teacher appears. "

Remember to meditate - five times a week to bring health benefits. It's a fact. And when you meditate, meditate, and when you walk really walk, and when you sit, really sit, and when you take a bite of food, chew it slowly and enjoy it, and so on. Does that make sense? What ever it is you decided to do - get in there, do it, feel it . . .

JUMP into it.

Okay saw a terrible movie tonight with my daughter and my friend. "Forgetting Sarah Marshall'. Don't go see it. We mistakenly thought it was a comedy/love story - i.e. chick flick. Well, when we got into the theater, there were a lot of men, we giggled wondering why there were so many men in there, now we know. But being the eternal optimist (hopefully most of the time) I did find one idea in it that was quite interesting.

Both characters had been jilted by the loves of their lives. They had been wounded. (Now in the movie the pain was caused by the ex-lovers, but it could be anyone who loved you that wounded you). They talked about when someone was wounded so bad and then having to deal with the pain it puts you through, when you get to the other side - you're not so afraid to jump - you're stronger - a survivor. It's true.


So clear your mind and relax, DON'T worry. BE happy. If you can't do it for 24/7 then BE happy for half a day. If you can't BE happy for half the day, BE happy for an hour. If you can't BE happy for an hour BE happy for a minute.
Then tomorrow MAKE it two minutes.

If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.-Mother Teresa

Remember it's your life, your choice, your happiness - that you have to take responsibility for.
