Keep positive to get things in life

There are times in our lives when we feel down and against the world.  Whether it be a gain in weight while on a diet, fitness goals unmet, problems with a relationship or even problems with our career, you will have times in your life when things aren’t perfect.  So what is a person to do when everything seems to be falling out of place and nothing seems to be helping out of the hole of despair?  Well, as a Christian I want to say follow up with more prayers and give thanksgiving for all the blessings we have in life.  Additionally I want to add to stay positive in the lack of light in your life right now.  Take a breath, walk away for a few moments (or longer if necessary) and look towards it in a different light.  Keep positive in the times of darkness and you will…

An Inspiring Quote for the Weekend :-)

wellness thoughts

The mind-body connection is so powerful. 🙂

And sadly, that power is often forgotten when it is needed most.

I always try to dwell on good thoughts these days; focusing on what’s positive, throughout each day.

I also strive to let go of the petty annoyances that come up; in the big picture, they really mean little or nothing at all. 

That kind of positive energy and thought pattern can also have a profound effect on how we are feeling and on our overall health. I know personally just how well this works.

I’ve “been there” when it comes to talking about and dwelling on every little ache and pain and my larger health concerns too, over the years. I know now without any doubt, that dwelling on health and wellness at all times DOES impact reality in significant ways, if we stick with it. 

If you haven’t already, try it! You will be amazed by the power of your subconscious mind if you let it work its wonders.

The body/mind connection. It works for or against us, every day. The choice is ours.

Have a Happy and Healthy Weekend! 🙂

Word of the Week: Perception

path photo black and white

From a distance, a “time out” from our usual routine thoughts… what do we perceive?

“Perception appears to be automatic, but in fact it is a learned phenomenon. The world you live in including the experience of your body, is completely dictated by how you learned to perceive it. If you can change your perception, you change the experience of your body and your world.”

from the book:

Ageless Body. Timeless Mind by Deepak Chopra

***
What a hopeful and inspiring message this is.

I read this book several years ago; it’s one that I can highly recommend. 🙂

Written many years ago, but the insights and wisdom of this author still ring true. 

Have a Wonderful and Insightful Week!

When In Doubt….

love hearts

When life is hard. 

To resolve. 

To stand firm. 

In our convictions and our decisions. 

Becomes a daunting task . 

 

When life is easy. 

The confidence flows. 

Our minds are clear. 

No negative, nagging doubts to hold us back. 

Resolve comes smoothly and without;

the draining , regretful glance of the past.

 

Decisions: 

Without them. 

Nothing moves. 

Stagnation forms a thick, suffocating film. 

Shrouding us in darkness. 

Watching in despair as; 

the Good Life happens to someone else.

  

To find balance. 

That happy medium of: 

Caution not fear. 

Patience not immobility. 

Always to strive for. 

Always to search for. 

A precious and significant reward. 

Worthy of the journey. 

The casting aside of our fears.

 

Resolve. 

The promise of… 

cutting through delays . 

No more wasted days. 

Drawing our line in the sand. 

Savoring each experience. 

A leap of faith.

 

Yes. 

No.

Not,maybe so.

  

To resolve: 

I

will 

live 

and 

live 

with 

my decisions. 

Today.

Also created for the August 18th Woven Dreams prompt:

DOUBTS

This is a poem from my 2008 archives which I revised a bit for today’s post.

I thought it was worthy of an encore.

It rang true for me, again today. Hope it does for you too. 🙂

An Inspiring Quote and the Mystery of Spring Flowers.

065

“Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved.”

Zen saying

I love this quote!

So true, how our perceptions of each day and every experience can make all the difference.

Speaking of mysteries, is there anything more amazing than the wonder of the first flowers of spring?

I’m a big tulip fan! I love to see the “new arrivals” each spring.

For now, here’s one from the photo file. 🙂

Happy Weekend!

PS: I am testing the waters with a new blog idea (yes, just what I need, another blog) 😉 this would be a weekly prompt blog.
