    emoticon Gratitude, not just a November idea. It's a huge piece of what happiness is built upon. I wish it for you!

    A short inspiration expert from a lovely book called Loving My Actual Life by Alexandra Kuykendall ...

    "We have lots of expectations that we bring into our everyday. Often we don't even know we carry them until we feel disappointment creep in. When we slow down we can recognize these expectations, come to terms with our reality and then notice what we do have. When I pay attention to the good currently in my life my gratitude grows. Grateful people are happier people. I can't be grateful for the details of my life if I don't pay attention to them. We live at rapid speed these days. Our years are made up of days which are made up of hours and moments. The smaller moments are the building blocks of our lives. When we notice them and appreciate them we are making small decision after small decision to fully embrace today live out of gratitude.”

    What small detail of your life are you grateful for today?

    emoticon Stop stopping yourself. emoticon Stop holding yourself back. emoticon
    Stop giving power to your limitations. Instead, give commitment, action and persistence to your best possibilities.
    Fear and anxiety are immensely compelling, yet you are even stronger. The inertia of complacency is powerful, and yet you can overcome it.
    Whatever may have been holding you back has done so with your cooperation. Choose now to no longer cooperate.
    You have made the excuses and rationalizations, and you can now let them go. You have focused on the fear, and you can now move beyond it.
    The challenges facing you are very real, but that doesn’t mean you must add to them. Instead, use the positive power of your life to move successfully through them.
    — Ralph Marston
    STOP and take some time for yourself to relax and refresh during this week!

    Barely the day started and... it's already six in the evening.
    Barely arrived on Monday and it's already Friday.
    ... and the month is already over.
    ... and the year is almost over.
    ... and already 40, 50 or 60 years of our lives have passed.
    ... and we realize that we lost our parents, friends.
    and we realize it's too late to go back...
    So... Let's try, despite everything, to enjoy the remaining time...
    Let's keep looking for activities that we like...
    Let's put some color in our grey...
    Let's smile at the little things in life that put balm in our hearts.
    And despite everything, we must continue to enjoy with serenity this time we have left. Let's try to eliminate the afters...
    I'm doing it after...
    I'll say after...
    I'll think about it after...
    We leave everything for later like ′′ after ′′ is ours.
    Because what we don't understand is that:
    Afterwards, the coffee gets cold...
    afterwards, priorities change...
    Afterwards, the charm is broken...
    afterwards, health passes...
    Afterwards, the kids grow up...
    Afterwards parents get old...
    Afterwards, promises are forgotten...
    afterwards, the day becomes the night...
    afterwards life ends...
    And then it's often too late....
    So... Let's leave nothing for later...
    Because still waiting see you later, we can lose the best moments,
    the best experiences,
    best friends,
    the best family...
    The day is today... The moment is now...
