Stress happens when your mind resists what is.
The only problem in your life
is your mind's resistance to life as it unfolds.

Turn your wounds into wisdom. You will be wounded many times in your life. You’ll make mistakes. Some people will call them failures but I have learned that failure is really God’s way of saying, “Excuse me, you’re moving in the wrong direction.” It’s just an experience, just an experience.

They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,

their true beauty is revealed
only if there is a light from within.

Never speak out of anger,
Never act out of fear,
Never choose from impatience,
But wait . . . and peace will appear.
The past is as powerless to darken the present moment as is a shadow to reach up and drag down the form that casts it.

Forgiveness is not always easy.
At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered,
to forgive the one that inflicted it.
And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.

Find the Opportunity in the Obstacle

In each of our lives, for whatever reason,
there are times that we are faced with things
that just don't make sense to us.
And the more we struggle to understand our hardships,
the less any of it makes sense...

I've personally found that in every challenge
and obstacles we are faced with there can be
good that comes from it! While it's almost never
easy to identify, I assure you that it is there lying
dormant just waiting for us to release it!

I urge you to spend at least some portion
of a day looking for the positives in life.

It's your life. LIVE BIG!

~ Josh Hinds ~

YOU DESERVE TO FEEL LIKE NUMBER ONE!

It's time to clean house and surrender
any destructive thoughts in your head.
No more will you allow negative people
to scramble your brain.
No more will you dwell on
painful uncomfortable times.

Let go means - Let go!

Make it a priority to keep investing
in yourself and your well being.
Make room in your life for happiness,
success, healing, and fulfilling relationships.

Before you know it
you will start feeling entitled to Abundance
and that is as it should be,
because you are Number One.

I saw this quote on another Sparker's page and it's so true it hit me like a ton of bricks.

Success is the sum of small efforts - repeated day in and day out.
~ Robert Collier ~

This could serve as a SP motto. Little changes eventually wind up yielding big results in all areas of our lives if we put them into practice daily. What small change can you implement today and continue with to be a more positive person?

In your hands you hold the seeds of failure or the potential for greatness. Your hands are capable, but they must be used and for the right things to reap the rewards you are capable of attaining. The choice is yours.

People will not bear it when advice is violently given, even if it is well founded. Hearts are flowers; they remain open to the softly falling dew, but shut up in the violent downpour of rain.
~ John Paul Richter ~

This makes me wonder how many hearts I have accidentily forced closed with well intentioned advice. Part of life is learning to zip it when appropriate, no matter how much I want to cry out for somebody's best interest. Who am I to think I have ANY of the answers anyway?

Each of us will one day be judged by our standard of life, not by our standard of living; by our measure of giving, not by our measure of wealth; by our simple goodness, not by our seeming greatness.
~ William Arthur Ward ~

For the next week, I challenge you to simplify your life and concentrate not on the material, but the etherial. Give lovingly and freely because you can't take it with you and it will be good for your soul. Be humble and good and help one another. Not one of us is so mighty that we are an island unto ourselves.

I am going to declutter my house and donate to the ARC Thrifstore this week.

We have a right to choose our attitude.

Beyond this, I would add we have a duty to ourselves, our family and friends, coworkers and aquaintences to choose happiness. We are in control of our attitudes no matter what happens that is beyond our control.

Love does not begin and end the way we think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is growing up.
~ James A. Baldwin ~

All I can add to this is I have found it to be true. I am still maturing and learning to express love in appropriate ways, or to be more accurate, to not do innapropriate, intentional or not, things that demonstrate no regard for those I love.

It's funny how one moment can change a million after it.
~ anonymous ~

What moments have impacted your life the most?

For me, there have been the moments that have impacted me in either good or bad ways. Something inside me died the moment I gave up my dream of being a marine biologist. I gave up the dream because it displeased my then in-laws because they were supporting me and my ex-husband while we were both in college.

The moment I met my current husband has changed most of my moments in life for the better.
