“It’s not that some people have will power and some don’t. It’s that some people
are ready to change and others are not." James Gordon, M.D.
"It’s a new year and that offers the possibility of a refreshing commencement and the creation of a revitalized life.
Today make a commitment to live in the moment and be the artist of your exceptional, more purposeful, and
significant life. Always remember that you are the artist and you have the freedom to paint the portrait of
your existence in any way you wish. There are endless possibilities for your life. Within you lies the
power to create the life you desire. What is your initial plan for the invention of your new life?"
~ From Your Daily Walk with The Great Minds Authored By Richard A. Singer Jr. MA
TODAY'S THE DAY......
Today I will delete from my diary two days:
yesterday and tomorrow...
Yesterday was to learn and tomorrow will be
the consequence of what I can do today.
Today I will face life with the conviction
that this day will not ever return.
Today is the last opportunity I have to live intensely,
as no one can assure me that I will see tomorrow's sunrise.
Today I will be brave enough not to let any opportunity pass me by,
my only alternative is to succeed.
Today I will invest my most valuable resource:my time,
in the most transcendental work: my life.
Today I will spend each minute passionately to make
of today a different and unique day in my life.
Today I will defy every obstacle that appears
on my way, trusting that I will succeed.
Today I will resist pessimism and will conquer the world with a smile,
with the positive attitude of expecting always the best.
Today I will make of every ordinary task
a sublime expression.
Today I will have my feet on the ground, understanding reality
and the stars' gaze to invent my future.
Today I will take the time to be happy and
will leave my footprints and my presence in the hearts of others.
Today, I invite you to begin a new season where we can dream
that everything we undertake is possible and
we fulfill it, with joy and dignity.

EVERY DROP'S A DREAM .......
If each grain of sand were to say:
One grain does not make a mountain,
There would be no land.
If each drop of water were to say:
One drop does not make an ocean,
There would be no sea.
If each note of music were to say:
Each note does not make a symphony,
There would be no melody.
If each word were to say:
One word does not make a library,
There would be no book.
If each brick were to say:
One brick does not make a wall,
There would be no house.
If each seed were to say:
One seed does not make a field,
There would be no harvest.
If each of us were to say:
One person does not make the difference,
There would never be love and peace on earth.
You and I do make the difference,
Begin today and make the difference.

EVERY DAY IS CHRISTMAS...
Every day is Christmas when you have the kind of mind,
That stores up all the goodness and the sweetness it can find
When you don't need an occasion, to spread a bit of cheer,
But just keep on a-giving, of yourself throughout the year
Every day is Christmas, with a gaily wrapped surprise,
When you've learned to see the friendship in someone else's eyes.
When you try a little harder, and complain a little less,
Holding fast to all the fervor of the faith that you possess
Every day is Christmas, when you've found that you can be
More concerned with words like 'you' and less with 'I' and 'me'.
When it's fun to do a favor, and to lend a helping a hand,
When being understood means less, than when you understand
Every day is Christmas, with a beauty deeply cast,
When you find it doesn't matter, if you're first or if you're last
When you can face your conscience, and be glad of who you are,
Then every day is Christmas, for you'll have friends near and far.
~ Author Unknown

blessings and hugs..................lita

My Holiday Wish......
My holiday wish is that we may
See good in those who pass our way;
Find in each a worthy trait
That we shall gladly cultivate;
See in each one passing by
The better things that beautify —
A softly spoken word of cheer,
A kindly face, a smile sincere;
I hope each day that we may view
The things that warm one's heart anew;
The kindly deed that can't be bought
That only from good are wrought,
A burden lightened here and there,
A brother lifted from despair,
The aged ones freed from distress;
The lame, the sick, brought happiness.
Grant that before each sun has set
We'll witness deeds we can't forget;
A soothing hand to one in pain,
A sacrifice for love — not gain;
A word to ease the troubled mind
Of one whom fate has dealt unkind.
So, friend, my wish is that we may
See good in all who pass our way.
