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!

Have a wonderful life and always remember ~ take care of you!
With much affection,
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 is an, as yet, unfulfilled reality just lying in wait for ‘your‘ right 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.
With much affection,
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,
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,
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!
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.

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.
I wish you well this day,
(For Throw Back Thursday) first published 2 years ago)
If I hold on … real tight,
If I think thoughts so bright,
if I smile with a might,
I just may get it right …
… those things that I try for today!
If I dwell on the good things,
that which makes hearts sing,
fear and doubt will then take wing,
happiness and wisdom may bring,
… those things that I try for today!

Hope it’s always there, although sometimes we must really struggle to remember, and it’s okay to believe in miracles too! They do happen!
A happy Wednesday and Thursday to all my friends, the ones I know and the ones I’ve yet to meet!
… and I hear you in my heart.
Each beat of my own heart reminds me of how wonderful you are. You, my beloved people of Earth give me reason for being. YOU, each of you, individually do this for I know we are ALL part of the whole of humanity, and to do our best we need each other.
Please believe that even though we may not know each other, I care about you. And I hear and love you, wherever you are in this wonderful planet we share together, you are not alone … you are loved. Don’t give up. Be brave. You’re worth it!
“I hear you in my heart, I feel you in my soul, we “all humans”
are connected to one another
even as we are connected to the very fabric of life on our planet.
Listen closely … you’ll hear and feel it too.
Our love for one another – is stronger than every negative thing
that’s out there right now trying to defeat you and I.
But we’re stronger than that.
Yes we are!”

Ever noticed from the time we’re old enough to understand words and their meanings ‘others’ have felt the need to point out our limitations. What’s wrong with us. Why we can’t do something.
In fact, we are often reminded so frequently of our supposed shortcomings, we begin to believe it ourselves. So we grow up and when we’re told we can’t do something – why YOU or I can’t make it happen – many of us give up. We STOP believing in our dreams, ideas and goals.
There are no limitations when you believe in magic. When your imagination is free to roam to unknown vistas – it will soar. ‘They’ are mistaken when they tell you what you can’t do, can’t achieve, can’t become.
Believe, really believe, it will happen. The magic awakens within you when you do. And then the most amazing things will begin to happen.
There need be no limitations, most especially the self-imposed limitations where You doubt yourself. When you begin to believe you can do it (make your dreams come true) something wonderfully magical and freeing begins to take shape and the more you believe in you, the greater the magic. There’s an awesome delicious feeling that will catch hold of your spirit and propel you forward.
Try it! Believe in magic (that undefinable wonderful unknown “something” we all possess)! It begins when you start believing in yourself. All things are possible when you do. And then hold on tight to your dream, never let it go. The magic will happen, you’ll see.
And as for myself … well … I’ll be right here saying “I told you so” when your magic happens because not only do I believe in magic but more importantly, I believe in you. The ‘you’ deep inside, the ‘you’ with so much potential just waiting to burst out, and that, my friends is magical! As are we all!
With much affection,
