One Would Like to Believe In …

123onedoes

One would like to believe in our fellow man

One would like to believe in the good

One would like to believe all will end well

One would like to believe that it should.

One would like to believe in tomorrow

and not worry so much just because

One  is hopeful and prayful and grateful

One would like to believe and … ONE DOES!

Accomplishing the Impossible!

image

Walt Disney once said “I’m doing the difficult today, tomorrow I’ll do the impossible.”

Was he crazy? No one can do the impossible. Or can they? Actually there’s  a bit of a dichotomy here. What he actually meant was “what appears to be impossible becomes possible – once accomplished.”

We all know of stories about ordinary people like you and I, who figure out how to do seemingly impossible things and become successful in the process.

I’m happy to share their secret here:
They believe in themselves.
They believe in their goal.
They never give up.

Okay, what impossible thing are you going to accomplish tomorrow?

You know the secret now, so there’s no one to stop you…

…Except yourself. Your life, your choice. Make it be what you want it to be … start with the impossible. You can do it!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great tomorrow and remember to always take care of you. If you’re not okay, you can’t be there for others.

A Wish ~ Your Unfulfilled Reality!

image

A wish is an, as yet, unfulfilled reality just lying in wait foryourright moment to make it happen.” ~ Plh

There are those who believe in fate and there are those who believe nothing will happen unless you’re out there making it happen.

For myself, I think it’s somewhere in between the two. Wishing and dreaming often set in  motion the creative application of your imagination. This, in turn, can inspire within you a passion to achieve – the inspiration you’ve been waiting for to make things happen.

The only thing left then, is for you to believe you can do it. And of course you can!!!! For certain. Your wishes, your desires, your reality – YOURS!

Hope your week is going well, take care of you.

Your Thoughts – the main influencing factor in your life!

Did you know that? I’ll bet you didn’t. Like most of  us we assume others around us are our main influencers, or that the particular circumstances or conditions we find ourselves in are responsible for why we think or feel a certain way.

Nope. It’s you. All by your lonesome, you’re the one that decides how you’re going to feel about whatever it is! All the other things are just stimuli that your mind takes into consideration before it decides what to do or not do and how it is to be done.

Consider your thoughts in the form of a pill you take each morning. A success pill that then influences your thinking positively.

This imaginary pill is your reminder that its up to you. You, who is the main influence in your life. Let it work in your favor! It worked for Einstein, DaVinci, Disney, Shakespeare, Plato. I could go on and on but the point is obvious. You decide what you want and then you make it happen. You Do!

So go ahead, be all you can be … it’s a great feeling … Take the success pill, influence yourself to achieve, set yourself up for success, as Napoleon Hill said repeatedly “think and grow rich”. He knew what he was talking about. And if you haven’t read his book (of the same title), go get it and read it from cover to cover. It’s one of the top selling books, ever, on the planet, so he definitely must have known what he was talking about.

Go for it, influence yourself to success. You’re in charge and you make it happen. a) because you believe you can and b) because you put those positive thoughts into action c) because you don’t give up (Don’t forget about Edison and his failures before his final breakthrough with the lightbulb).

Just 3 things to remember, you can do it. You know you can!

Have a great day today,

Penny

Living Life – An easier way.

 DSCN1442

It isn’t the living that’s so difficult … it’s life itself. Life can come at you hard and fast. Take you down when you least expect it. That’s the truth. In fact for most of us you can count on it happening. But living … well that’s something else again. What you do, how you act, how you feel when life throws you a curve ball will determine how tough things are going to be for you and for how long. This is also true.

The distinction is that while we cannot change some of the things that happen to us, we can decide how we will respond to them. And we’re back to hard again. Or at least tough. Some of the things that happen to us, not of our making, (although an amazing amount of what happens to us is) are emotionally and or physically hard to overcome. But people do it everyday. And they’re fundamentally no different than you or I.

They do have determination, however. They are willing to get back up and try again. And even though you read this and say well maybe for them … the last truth I’ll share with you is that in the long run, it turns out to be easier to change your attitude about life and yourself, to make things happen in spite of it all – if you’re willing to do so.

So here’s the thing – I believe you can! Do you?

With sincere affection,

Where There Be Shadows … Let Me Find Sunshine!

Never Stop Believing

Where there be shadows … let me find sunshine.

Where there be sadness … let me share joy.

Where there be greed … let me bring charity.

Where there be disdain … let me show goodwill.

Where there be war … let me offer peace.

Where there be hate … let me give love.

We will survive. Embedded in each of our hearts is a goodness that will win out, in spite of the many misguided and negative approaches to our current lifestyles and mindset.

It is this knowledge that keeps my faith for all life, alive and thriving. Even on the darker days I know there will be light.

Peace and love to all of you – my friends I know, and my friends I’ve yet to meet!

Believing in Intangible Truths!

I BELIEVE

Embracing the glow

listening to intangible truths,

I but a mortal can only wonder

At that which I cannot see

But know and feel to be.

    ~ Penny L. Howe, 2012

I believe deep inside lies a flame. A light if you will. I call it faith. I don’t mean religion. Religion is how many chose to embrace, celebrate and nurture their faith. But faith comes in all formats and I believe in each one of us exists this glowing essence.

Faith is the language of the soul. The glow from within. The flame glows mightily for some and almost imperceptibly for others. But it’s always there, none the less.

Some spend their lives disbelieving what their soul whispers to them in the night. Some spend their lives questioning that which they cannot understand even though they feel it inside. Some spend their lives on a quest embracing that which they cannot understand but chose to accept. And some radiate the glow from within for all to see.

Faith is the language of our soul and whatever you decide to accept and believe, it will always be there inside, waiting to come forth. I believe faith is the flame that shines within your soul that brightens your hopes, your dreams, your possibilities, your life. This I believe.

Thank you,

I wish you well this day,
