A lot of us just finished celebrating a very Holy, GOD centered week. Some of us enjoyed our Spring Break and some of us actually had to work. Regardless, of how you spent last week, you always had a choice. You could have chosen to concentrate on your problems or concentrate on how good life is to you. There is ALWAYS something to be Grateful for.
As I enjoyed my Spring Break I wrote a to do list which comprised 19 items. As my Spring Break came to an end, I complained about all the items that I had not accomplished. My moral compass, The Cat in NieCat, told me, Mom, just think of ALL the items in your list that you actually accomplished. Wow! That was a real “AHA” moment for me. Here I was concentrating on my short comings, the items on the list that I did not complete when I should have been praising myself for ALL the items on my list that I did finish. There were more completed items than not.
This week, I am challenging myself to come up with TEN things I am grateful for during my day. This week I shall not count or re-live my problems, imaginary ones and the apparent ones. This week, will be a GRATEFUL week for me.
Would you join me?
I like the phrase:
Don’t tell GOD how big your problems are; tell your problems how BIG Your GOD Is!
Happy Grateful moments,

Common Sense is not Common!
Am sitting here in Nassau, Bahamas being extremely happy as I celebrate my B*Day weekend and enjoy the sound of the ocean waves from my hotel room (this was a BIG Dream for me). Here is the thing,
is 4:19 a.m. and I am up! Why? One thing, I am excited about going outside to walk in the beach when morning time comes (yes, at 48 I am still a kid at heart), and am also suffering from a very nasty allergy attack. Being grateful and surfing channels I came across The Steve Harvey Show. He shared three rules that I just must share. Needless to say, me being me, I had to put my own spin to Steve Harvey’s three common sense rules.
We are ALWAYS thinking, always! Let us put our thinking time for good use. Think BIG!
What do you want?
Just think it!
Just feel it!
Go into your mind file cabinet and remember everything that you ever wanted to do. Go way back, select the BIGGEST Dream that has ever crossed your mind and dust it off. If you believe in GOD (I highly recommend you do) pray for the wisdom to make your BIG Dream come into fruition. If your dream is in the forefront of your mind, cultivate it. Give yourself permission to succeed. Give your BIG Dream permission to be manifested in your life, world, and affairs. See it! Smile as you think about it! See yourself in your BIG Dream!
INCH BY INCH ANYTHING IS A ZINCH
Once you figure out what your dream is, do something about it. Start small, just one action a day. Think about your BIG dream. Do something about your dream on a daily basis. Think about the feeling you will have when you achieve your dream.
What will it feel like?
What will you hear?
What would you feel?
Little by little formulate your BIG Dream in your head, feeling the feeling of manifesting your dream and be grateful for your BIG Dream coming into fruition.
LIFE IS 10% WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU AND 90% WHAT YOU DO ABOUT IT!
Even the BEST thinking person will have challenges in life. Everyone has challenges, is not the challenge, is the way we handle it. When you are in the process of seeing your BIG Dream in your mind’s eye and you begin doing something about it.
How are you going to react when the first obstacle appears?
What will you do when the 100’s obstacle appear?
example: You are in the grocery store and the line is really short, you are next and in a hurry.
What are your going to do?
What will you choose?
You can become exasperated, start complaining and become miserable in your mind, where ONLY you live OR you can use this time to think gratefully about your BIG Dream! You can use this time to pray, think happy thoughts, exercise your affirmations, review your vision statement mentally or send the cashier and customer thoughts of light and harmony.
What will you choose????
