A little Inspiration

toji_temple_japanToday I smiled, and all at once things didn’t look so bad
Today I shared with someone else, a bit of hope I had
Today I sang a little song, and felt my heart grow light,
And walked a happy little mile, with not a cloud in sight.

Today I worked with what I had and longed for nothing more,
And what had seemed like only weeds, were flowers at my door.
Today I loved a little more and complained a little less,
And in the giving of myself, I forgot my weariness.

I thought I would share this poem I came across recently. It really sums up how I want to live my life. I hope you enjoy!

Tips for a Beautiful Life

 thomas kinkade 2

I recently came across a quotation that is very inspirational and motivational to me.  I believe that I need to work on many of these issues on a constant, daily basis.  I plan to print this out and read it every day in order to empower myself in all areas of my life.

I find that maintaining balance in my life is one of the most difficult things to maintain.  I am hoping that this will help me focus and work on the issues consistently.

The following is a copy of the quotation I found:

AWESOME TIPS FOR BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!canary-2

1    Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. While you walk, SMILE.
It is the ultimate antidepressant.
2     Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
3     When you wake up in the morning, pray to ask God’s
guidance for your purpose, today.
4     Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food
5     Drink green tea and plenty of water.

6     Eat blueberries, broccoli, and almonds.
7     Try to make at least three people smile each day.
8     Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past,
negative thoughts or things you cannot control.  Instead invest your energy in the present moment.
9     Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a
college kid with a maxed out charge card.
10    Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
11    Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Forgive them for
everything!
12    Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
13    You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
14    Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
15    Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what
their journey is all about.
16    No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
17    Frame every so-called disaster with these words: ‘In five years,
will this matter?’indian_peafowl
18    Help the needy, be generous! Be a ‘Giver’ not a ‘Taker’
19    What other people think of you is none of your business.
20    Time heals everything.
21    However good or bad a situation is it will change.
22    Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your
friends will. Stay in touch.
23    Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
24    Each night before you go to bed, pray to God and be thankful
for what you’ll accomplish, today!
25    Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.                                                                                 

 I will try to implement one of these tips each day over the next month, and blog my thoughts on the individual tip and how it applies to me.  Any input from anyone else out there would be greatly appreciated.  Maybe someone would care to join me and share thoughts/actions that occur…
