Monday nuggets...

Waiting for Someday
Why Not Now?
All the joy and passion you can envision can be yours right now, rather than in a future point in time.

The time we are blessed with is limited and tends to be used up all too quickly. How we utilize that time is consequently one of the most important decisions we make. Yet it is far too easy to put off until tomorrow what we are dreaming of today. The hectic pace of modern existence affords us an easy out; we shelve our aspirations so we can cope more effectively with the challenges of the present, ostensibly to have more time and leisure to realize our purpose in the future. Or we tell ourselves that we will chase our dreams someday once we have accomplished other lesser goals. In truth, it is our fear that keeps us from seeking fulfillment in the here and now ~ because we view failure as a possibility, our reasons for delaying our inevitable success seem sound and rational. If we ask ourselves what we are really waiting for, however, we discover that there is no truly compelling reason why we should put off the pursuit of the dreams that sustain us.

When regarded as a question, "Why not now?" drains us of our power to realize our ambitions. We are so concerned with the notion that we are somehow undeserving of happiness that we cannot see that there is much we can do in the present to begin courting it. Yet when we look decisively at our existence and state, "Why not now, indeed!" we are empowered to begin changing our lives this very moment. We procrastinate for many reasons, from a perceived lack of time to a legitimate lack of self-belief, but the truth of the matter is that there is no time like the present and no time but the present. Whatever we aim to accomplish, we will achieve it more quickly and with a greater degree of efficiency when we seize the day and make the most of the resources we have at our disposal presently.

All the joy, passion, and contentment you can envision can be yours right now, rather than in some far-flung point in time. You need only remind yourself that there is nothing standing between you and fulfillment. If you decide that today is the day you will take your destiny into your hands, you will soon discover that you hold the keys of fate.

Focus more on your desire than on your doubt, and the dream will take care of itself. You may be surprised at how easily this happens. Your doubts are not as powerful as your desires, unless you make them so.
                        ~ Marcia Wieder


Begin today. Declare out loud to the universe that you are willing to let go of struggle and eager to learn through joy.      
                        ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach


‎If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning "good morning" at total strangers.
                        ~ Maya Angelou


Be Good to You!

Be yourself, truthfully.
Accept yourself, gratefully,
Value yourself, joyfully.
Forgive yourself, completely.
Treat yourself, generously.
Balance yourself, harmoniously.
Bless yourself, abundantly.
Trust yourself, confidently.
Love yourself, wholeheartedly.
Empower yourself, immediately.
Give yourself, enthusiastically.
Express yourself, radiantly.

A Note from the Universe

It's like you're a fabulously complicated jigsaw puzzle piece with stunning colors, wildly serrated edges, oceans of emotion, mountains of possibilities, worlds of talent, and complex energies, but for as long as you see yourself as just human, you'll never quite know where you fit in.

Just say "No" -
    The Universe


You will notice that those who speak most of prosperity, have it. Those who speak most of health, have it. Those who speak most of sickness, have it. Those who speak most of poverty, have it. It is Law. It can be no other way... The way you feel is your point of attraction, and so, the Law of Attraction is most understood when you see yourself as a magnet getting more and more of the way you feel. When you feel  lonely, you attract more loneliness. When you feel poor, you attract more poverty. When you feel sick, you attract more sickness. When you feel unhappy, you attract more unhappiness. When you feel  healthy and vital and alive and prosperous—you attract more of all of those things.
                        ~ 'The Teachings of Abraham' by Esther and Jerry Hicks


Ask for help. Asking for help is not a sign you that you are not good enough, it is a signal that you want to do and be your best.  Don't try to reinvent the wheel, unless you need to learn from it.  Ask for help in any area you need it, be it physical, mental or even spiritual.   We can't do everything as well as someone else, and it is a waste of time and effort to try to do something, that another person can do for you, faster and easier, and use the help you are given to move your life ahead and be the best you can be. But be careful to ask the right people for help.  When we need help, all to often we ask who is ever convenient, rather than who is the person best suited to give us the help we need.
                        ~ Edward W. Smith


Daily Teaching from The Power

If you are feeling sad, disappointed, frustrated, or any other negative feeling, then you are looking at the world through that feeling field, and the world will look sad, disappointing or frustrating to you. You cannot see anything good through a field of bad feelings. Not only is your negative field attracting more negativity to itself, but you will never see your way out of any problem until you change the way you feel. Changing the way you feel is easy compared to running around trying to change the circumstances of the outside world. All the physical action in the world cannot change the situation. Change your feelings and the outside circumstances will change!
