“The world’s favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May.”
– Edwin Way Teale
May 13th, some may say today, “be careful, it’s Friday the 13th”. I don’t subscribe to superstition. I believe we are given choices in life and we decide our destiny. Something good doesn’t happen because we pick up a penny. Something wonderful happens when we open our hearts to the endless possiblities of hope and love in the universe.
We make choices every day; to do the right thing, to speak kind words, to give to others…or not to.
Today is not a superstitous day…it a gorgeous sunny day in the Chicago area! This May 13th is filled with neighbors walking, planting, bike riding; sounds of children playing outside and enjoying the beautiful weather. The cold winter months are so quiet…close up the windows, stay in to stay warm…May is filled with a feeling of “throw open your windows and let the SUN IN!!” We feel a sense of hope, a sense of refreshing our souls and blooming of new memories.
All things are possible in May…just allow yourself to be welcoming to all the possibilities!
If you are feeling overwhelmed or not confident in your abilities, just look at this day. The warmth and light from the sun will give you the strength you need to embrace all the possibilities you CHOOSE to embrace!!
Be INSPIRED and reach to the sun…be the tallest flower…OPEN and JOYFUL!
“Be like a flower and turn your face to the sun.”
– Kahlil Gibran
“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
As we prepare for the weekend, let us each pay close attention to our attitudes towards others.
We cannot change others, but we can control ourselves.
We are in charge of our attitudes!
Blessings on your weekend!
Good Friday – what is the gift in the crucifixation of Jesus?
The true meaning of Easter: http://youtu.be/JVo7R1Fbu_I
What would you have done if you were at the foot of the cross?
What would you do watching Him suffer and take his last breathe?
But there is GIFT in His death ~ Jesus rose!! He saved us ~ we get to receive his GIFT of LOVE!
Take some time this Good Friday to reflect on the GIFTS that you have received in your life this past year.
Give yourself a chance,
Give yourself the moment,
Give yourself the freedom,
Give yourself the power,
Give yourself the confidence,
Live for today not for tomorrow, Live the EXTREME !!!!!!!
Because you got yourself only one life… LIVE IT !!!!
As we move into the weekend, I thought this quote was appropriate. We should give ourselves freedom and power. We control the choices we make each day. We can chose to live for today and not worry about tomorrow. When we lay our heads down tonight, we should rest and relax knowing the the Almighty has all our worries and concerns in the palm of his hand. He wants us to live to the extreme – to glorify the good news and to LIVE the one life he blessed us with.
So, what are you doing this weekend to Live Your Life to the EXTREME?
