Good morning . . . . with Rooster!


Right at the very break of day
He sings out
His raucous song of praise:
‘Wake up out of your sleep!
The sun comes golden!
See through the branches of the trees
Those bright rays of new hope
And Love Eternal
Are reaching out to us all
Who raise ourselves up
To live the new day! ‘

New week Inspiration ❤️☀

May you have the courage this week to begin breaking the patterns in your life that no longer serve you.

May you give yourself the permission to pause and reflect today remembering that taking care of yourself doesn’t mean: “me first”; it means, “me too”.

And May an infinite stream of love, joy and peace shower upon you today and always.
Wishing you all a Happy Monday and a safe and wonderful week ahead.

New Week Inspiration ❤️☀ . . . . This is a perfect reminder

This is Jim Thorpe… all 6’1″ 203 pounds of him.. Look closely at the photo, you can see that
he’s wearing different socks and shoes. This wasn’t a fashion statement. It was the 1912
Olympics, and Jim, an American Indian from Oklahoma represented the U.S. in track and
field. On the morning of his competitions, his shoes were stolen. Luckily, Jim ended up
finding two shoes in a garbage can. That’s the pair that he’s wearing in the photo. But one of
the shoes was too big, so he had to wear an extra sock. Wearing these shoes, Jim won two
gold medals that day. This is a perfect reminder that you don’t have to resign to the excuses
that have held you back. So what if life hasn’t been fair? What are you going to do about it
today? Whatever you woke up with this morning; stolen shoes, ill health, failed relationships,
failed business, don’t let it stop you from running your race. You can experience more in life
if you’ll get over the excuses and get on with living. You can have reasons or you can have
results…but you can’t have both.

Morning Meditation!

Have patience with everything 
unresolved in your heart,
and try to love the questions
as if they were locked rooms
or books written in a very foreign language.

Do not search for the answers, which
could not be given to you now,
because you would not be able to live
And the point is to live everything.
Live the questions now.
Perhaps then, someday far in the
you will gradually,
without even noticing it, live your way
into the answer.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

A New Day!

A New Day

If life seems at its lowest ebb,
Because a day’s gone wrong.
Let not your heart be troubled,
For a new day soon will dawn

And we can never be quite sure,
Just what it has in store.
Since each one is so different,
Than the one just gone before

As it penetrates the darkness,
With its soft and tranquil beams.
It calms even the most restless soul,
And brings new hopes and dreams

So when a days been troubled,
And the night is dark and long.
Lift up your fallen spirits,
For a new day soon will dawn.

#GoodMorning . . . . Clasped by the golden light of morn

” She stood breast-high amid the corn
Clasped by the golden light of morn,
Like the sweetheart of the sun,
Who many a glowing kiss had won.”
