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

Progress always involves risk; you can't steal second base and keep your foot on first. ~Frederick Wilcox

Today I am grateful...
  • that as I lay in bed last night reading I was overcome with such gratitude for the life I have today. What a lovely feeling.
  • that serenity is a prized possession
  • for prayers of patience to make it through this incredible extended heat wave
  • that with concentration for a moment I can find gratitude anytime, anywhere
  • for continuing practice to be non-judgemental, sometimes I actually succeed

It costs you nothing to decide that you have enough. For having enough does not preclude you from creating more abundance in your life.
In fact, having enough sets your creativity free and allows your effectiveness to soar to new heights. When you get away from the stifling mindset of lack and limitation, truly magnificent things will happen.
By having enough, your struggles disappear and are replaced with countless opportunities for real joy. See right now that you have enough, and delight in the warm and genuine richness it brings. ~Ralph Marston

I'm glad you no longer use your bed as a TRAMPoline, but can just lay in it.

I love that serenity as a prized possession...so true. And it costs me nothing to DECIDE I have enough. So darn simple. Have a great weekend...sending you some cool SoCa ocean breezes...

Yes, it does take practice to be non-judgemental. I have to practice this daily.
