I read an article in the most recent, "Oprah" magazine, about luck. The premise of the article is that you can make luck happen for you. Few things to remember; prepare for it, open yourself up to it, and something simple-smile more!
I believe in luck. I believe that those aforementioned tips will bring luck upon you.
The more I thought about what the article said, I began to think and believe that... luck is made by a higher being. Luck is the plan that was made for us and when it comes into fruition, we call it "luck".
Luck are blessings...
I would add one thing to the tips that were given...pray everyday for luck or God's grace and blessing. When you do, great things happen upon you. Continue to live your life right and luck will continue to "find" you!
Good luck and be blessed!

According to Dictionary.com...Inaugurate is defined as:
|1.||to make a formal beginning of; initiate; commence; begin:|
|2.||to induct into office with formal ceremonies; install.|
|3.||to introduce into public use by some formal ceremony:|
Today has meant so much to me, as well as to sooo many! But today, I see what it means to be patriotic, love my country, and want to do all that I can humanly do to make it what it should be.
President and First Lady Obama definitely have my support, my efforts, my heart, my tears, my prayers, and my love to help them and our country see through to our vision/mission!
Change has come!
And we must accept it and move forward....grow and evolve!
Today, as a country we were inaugurated. Inaugurated to make a promise to a purpose that might, today, seem greater than us, but because of us, can make a life and world better for US and our global community!

How many things do you feel are going "wrong"? Feeling anxious?
We are continuing in "detoxing" our inner spirit (well-being) by "removing" all of those anxious, overwhelming, negative feelings and thoughts. How, do you ask?
When you are still (meaning not doing anything...actually sitting there!, you are able to listen to your breathing. Concentrate on the inhaling and exhaling of it. Keep in mind that your breathe is a life source. It means you are alive. And in that is a blessing.
When you take time to focus on nothing but that blessing, you then leave room in your heart and mind for prayer. Praying is your conversation with God (or whatever higher being you believe in). When you pray and are still, that conversation is a real one that involves your speaking and God giving you a response(being still enables you to hear or feel the answer!)
And I don't know about you...but when this occurs...there is nothing in the world that feels greater! All is good with life! No busyness, no feeling overwhelmed, no anxiety.
So do something right for yourself today, just breathe!

Don't care for Mondays (always get a "Case of the Mondays"!). Tuesdays I wish were my first work day of the week. Wednesdays are in the middle and are considered hump days. Thursdays are the planning days for the weekend plans. Fridays are for "lazying around".
With today being Wednesday, it is then Humpday. My best friend and I used to celebrate this day with dinner and drinks and lament over how we had gotten "over the hump" of the current week. These were some of the best hump days and I found it easier to "get over the hump" when I had something to look forward to! Now due to schedule conflicts, we no longer get together for our humpday dinners...but that doesn't mean that I can't find something else new to look forward to. In order to get over the hump!
Take time to today to decide what can you do for yourself to get over the hump. What can you look forward to just to make it through the week? How will you celebrate getting over the "hump"?!

I have heard the phrase, "too blessed to be stressed", most of my adult life and I continue to battle with stress, despite "feeling" very blessed.
There are times that I have also tried using that phrase as a mantra to meditate with, but to no avail. So I concluded that my stress was blocking my blessings!
Therefore, I have to analysis and evaluate why is it that I am too stressed to accept being blessed?!
Just like pros and cons, I decided to make a list of things that are blessings in my life and other side, the things that stress me out. Try it! First step of detoxing is to get rid of the stress!
Make it a mission to increase the blessings and decrease the stressing in your life... then the phrase will be truth!
So go ahead friend...become too blessed to be stressed. You are WORTH it!

It just continues to show me how valuable time is and not to WASTE IT with frivolity. Make it count people...
Just make it count forever! And there is a long time between now and forever! So much time to make a lot things memorable and count! Time flies...

One day at a time
Stepping through a journey
Finding a way for it to
A journey of love.
An insatiable desire
to find the unconditional
of it in One.
Connection of souls.
A journey of power.
Feeling the strength of
empowerment and inspiration.
Free to be me- in a phenomenal way.
A journey of truth.
Looking through my own eyes
at the mirror within.
Reality and knowledge
Trust and peace of mind.
A long while coming…..
One day at a time
Stepping over barriers and evil
Kneeling to pray for
Comfort, counsel, and grace
Flying on the wings of faith
That this journey will be mine.

I have resolved to not have any "resolutions" for this year, but rather Promises. I have had enough of disappointments, therefore, I know that I will be more apt to keep promises- especially those made to myself.
The best thing about these promises are that their foundation are based on doing something that many of us tend to not do on a daily basis.
PUT ME FIRST.
It is nothing that is selfish nor narcissistic...it is about making yourself a top priority. Even if it is something as small as treating yourself to flowers or a massage. When you do this, you are able to be of better use to others and to the work that we know needs to be done in this new year.
Therefore, I dare you....put yourself first...feel it, act on it, embrace it, and BE IT!
Thank you for coming 2009...looking forward to legendary times!
