IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

The energy and time you spend can either bring you toward your dreams or it can keep you in the service of someone else's dream. Choose to follow your own dreams. Know exactly where you intend to go, and you're much more likely to get there. Have a plan, follow it with persistence, and enjoy being where you sincerely choose to be. ~Ralph Marston
Today I am grateful...
  • that Mary Christine celebrates 23 years of 24/7 life in sobriety
  • to be spiritually awake most days
  • for creative expression
  • that I have been offered my first gallery showing, in January 2008, by an established artist and master printer. He is opening a gallery space on W 11th and wants me to be the first to show there. This is huge for me. HUGE! It is my vision coming to fruition.
  • that I have five months to prepare
  • by sowing the seeds of gratitude, I am grateful to reap the harvest
The work of adult life is this: to become spiritually centered. And to do this, we work at getting rid of our self-will. There will be many great rewards for doing this. We will wake up spiritually. We will connect with those we love. The result? We will receive self-love to replace self-will. Our work will not be easy, but it will be rewarding. ~Keep It Simple

Hello dear brother

Thank you so much for taking the time of your day to write insightful, motivating quotes on a daily basis along with the things you are grateful for-they remind me everyday not to take things for granted- especially the simple ones. Take care of yourself
XOXO
