A Wonderful Message from MISSM66

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

I read this message from MISSM66 on a pal's Spark page, and I had to share:

"Good Morning Spark Friend,Think on these words.

1. Honor Yourself: Remember what the flight attendant says, "Put your own oxygen mask on first." You are of no use to anyone else if you have not taken care of your own needs first - this includes your own emotional, as well as physical, well-being.

2. Forgive Everyone For Everything: Forgiveness is a gift to yourself. YOU created the stress in your life by getting angry, and YOU can instantly remove that stress by granting forgiveness. Expressing your forgiveness to the other is optional - internalizing that forgiveness is required in order to live a joyful life. Don't forget to also forgive yourself for everything you regret ever having done or not done.

3. Have Gratitude For All Of Life: As with forgiveness, gratitude is a gift to yourself. Saying "thank you" is a powerful way to create great relationships, but the real power of gratitude is internalizing an immense thankfulness for your very existence - everything that has ever occurred or failed to occur in your life.

4. Respect Your Mind: Faith is powerful, but it is no substitute for observing, paying attention, weighing alternatives, and choosing with intention. Without conscious choice, there is no freedom or happiness.

5. Design Your Future: Don't be a passive tumbleweed blown by the winds of life. Envision the future you want, and then take action to create that future. Often, you will fail. Plan again and take action again.

6. Begin Today, and Never Give Up: There is no better time to begin than today - each and every "today." When obstacles stop you, think of new ways to reach your goals. In the words of the Oriental proverb, "Fall seven times, stand up eight have a great day and a wonderful week. "

Thank you, MISSM66. Truer words were never spoken!

    Great blog! And may I also add another Chinese proverb: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Don't be afraid to take that "first step" to get started on what you want to accomplish, no matter what you want to do. You only fail if you give up - which is not the same as making the decision that you're not going to do something. Just don't deceive yourself as to your reasons for stopping.
