Don't wait...

With all the lovely quotes I come across and the beautiful books I have read the common thread is that all we ever truly have is right now. One of my cousins was struggling with feeling happy today. I, too, have that struggle.

I instructed her to utilize the gratitude list. Listing the five things you can be grateful for in this very moment. I have so many things to be grateful for; many of us do.

I made a conscious decision to exercise today. I took a step to help with my financial issues...put an email out there...actually several. I have three awesome children who I am amazed at after all the events we have been through together...their resilience is astounding. I have a roof over my head...the same roof I have lived under since 2001...and even if I eventually have a different will be ok. I have this amazing community available to me online to motivate me on a daily basis giving me the opportunity to better myself.

I think it was Joseph Campbell who stated Take one step towards the Gods and they will take ten steps toward you (again my own paraphrasing). Peaks and valleys friends...

    I'm glad you could offer some help for your cousin. In doing so you will help yourself. There are amazing things to come in your future that you are yet to know. Have faith that they will come at the right time.
