If not now, when?

20770292_1503549859704958_4508292770968345312_n

We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another.
Then we are frustrated that the kids aren’t old enough, and we’ll be more content when they are.

After that, we’re frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage.

We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our partner gets his or her act together when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice holiday, when we retire.

The truth is, there’s no better time to be happy than right now.
If not now, when?

Today I am blessed.

“The ship of my life may or may not be sailing
on calm and amiable seas.
The challenging days of my existence may
or may not be bright and promising.
Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights,
I maintain an attitude of gratitude.
If I insist on being pessimistic,
there is always tomorrow.
Today I am blessed.”

~ Maya Angelou

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend”.

~ Melody Beattie

Into the light is where I was found.

“Into the light is where I was found.
For many years my soul was tied and bound.
I gave into the darkness
and then surrendered into the light
I let go of my fears
and set my soul to flight.”

– Melanie M Koulouris

With the first gleam of morning rays . . .

“With the first gleam of morning rays
the garden is a prism of a thousand hues
refracted in tiny dots of crystal dew
a dazzling quilt of millefleur colors
covering the sleeping flower beds.”

– Duane Michals

Wake Up and Live!

“Life is one big road with lots of signs.
So when you riding through the ruts,
don’t complicate your mind.
Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy.
Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality.
Wake Up and Live!”

~Bob Marley

And now a new day lies before us,

And now a new day lies before us,
like paths of pure white snow –
be careful how you tread and go,
for every step you take will show…
May your day be filled with Miracles.
And may our eyes and hearts be open
to notice and appreciate each one…
