Count Your Blessings!

Count Your Blessings!

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

Common Sense is not Common

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.

DREAM BIG
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????

Life Is a Thought Thing! Coach Arthur

LORD, BLESS ME!

Lord, Bless me! Bless every area of my life as I see to do Your will. Bless my mind with thoughts and feelings that restore me to perfect health and wholeness. When I pray, let my prayers affect the world consciousness in a positive, uplifting way.

Lord, bless my words, for they are charged with creative power. Let them bring forth only good and perfect results in my life. Use me as your mouthpiece to encourage others and myself.

Lord, bless my actions so that they create harmony and peace wherever I am, no matter what the circumstance or condition.  Lord, bless my reactions so that a sense of oneness is created and maintained in all of my relationships, whether personal or professional. These blessings I ask in the perfect name and nature of the Christ, my indwelling Wayshower and guide.

“Help me, Lord My GOD! Save me according to your steadfast love.” Psalm 109.26

My GOD is different than Your GOD!

God

What makes this world go around is the fact that GOD gave us ALL free will! You can read it in the Bible. The first chapter of the bible called Genesis explains exactly what GOD was thinking when He/She/It  made Our world.

I had a discussion with a friend yesterday who thought my idea of my GOD was border line blasphemy, however I stand by my idea of GODGOD Is a Good GODGOD is not a punishing GOD. I personally think that GOD would have been BETTER off if He/She/It would have just left us as He/She/It  intended. You see, GOD didn’t mean for us to have FREE Will at first. When I told my friend that I thought they were going to choke on their spit, but it is true. Adam and Eve were doing just find, until, well you know the story! The way Adam & Eve were living was GOD‘s original intention! Seriously, read Genesis and you will see!

The point is that now we do have FREE Will! We can do what we want, when we want, with whom we want and the like. Now, here is how my GOD differs from the GOD that others serve! My GOD is not busy trying to keep score on who does what to whom! That is why we have Karma! My GOD Is Every where present! My GOD knows Everything there is to know! My GOD is a forgiving GOD! You see GOD ONLY wants our BEST! GOD is our Parent! For those of you that are Parents, think of all the good you want for your children and times that desire times a Billion; that is what GOD wants for each one of Us.

Here is another shocker about My GOD! There is a piece of GOD in each one of us waiting for us to bring Him/Her/It  into expression! You decide whether you will allow GOD to shine through you. How? By your actions and reactions!

Another shocker! GOD (My GOD) is not a punishing GOD! My GOD is a GREAT GOD! My GOD does not keep score of your deeds. There is no such thing as Heaven and Hell as a place that you go to when you die. In My World, Heaven and Hell are RIGHT HERE! Now, I know some of you have already deleted this post from your lives, but here me out those of you that are still here. Heaven and Hell are right here! Heaven and Hell are states of mind that we decide we want to enjoy. Sure bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people, but I will assure you  that the GOD I serve is not making decisions on who gets what! GOD Is a GREAT GOD!

There are certain experiences we all have to go through in order to become the person we were Destined to become! It ALL depends upon how you look at the experiences that you are going through right now!

Example, I have been an Assistant Principal (AP) for 15 years now, most AP’s that went through the Principal Academy with me are now Principals. My choice, heaven or hell.

Hell – I could be bitter and become a horrible worker with no ethics because the power that are in place are over looking me.

Heaven (my choice) – my time will come, I will be a Principal, I will be an Exceptional Instructional Leader. “Everything happens for a reason & everything happens for my Highest good!  In GOD‘s time! GOD‘s knows BEST, remember GOD is ALL knowing. In the meantime, I do my BEST everyday, I am Grateful for my job, and I know, that I know that my time will come and when it does, I will be the BEST Principal Ever! That is Heaven!

The GOD I serve is more than likely different than your GOD! My GOD is not a punishing GOD and My GOD  is waiting for you to bring Him/Her/It into expression! Trust me, Your Life will be BETTER for it!
