Here is something worth thinking about:
“The more you try to protect, defend, prove or explain yourself, the farther you drift from authentic confidence. If someone does not want to accept you, no sales job is sufficient, and if someone accepts you, no sales job is necessary. Likewise, if someone wants to keep you guilty, no apology is acceptable, and if someone is willing to love you, no apology is necessary.”
We need to be true to ourselves, we need to love and accept ourselves. The quickier we learn this, the happier we will be. Stop trying to get people to see things your way, if what you are doing truly please you and makes you genuinely happy, then keep doing it. The people who around will benefit from a happier you, if they don’t, then they will leave as they should:-).
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony“….. Gandhi
Research has shown that kindness has a positive effect on the immune system and in the increase production of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a naturally occurring substance in the body that makes us feel more comfortable, peaceful and blissful.
So a simple act of kindness directed toward another improves the functioning immune system and stimulates the production of serotonin in both the recipient and extender of the kindness. Even more amazing is that persons witnessing the act are also similar beneficiaries.
So imagine that, kindness extended, received and observed beneficially impacts the physical health and feelings of everyone involved!
So today let’s commit to at least one act of kindness
Our thoughts go out as energy waves and attract conditions and circumstances to us that have a similar energy frequency. Many people say, Well, if that’s true, why do I think about something and not get it? They might say, I think about a good and loving relationship, winning the lottery, and a slender, healthy body, but I’m not getting those things!
The answer is simple; there’s something inside that is in conflict with their desires.
You are the sum of all your life experiences. Old recordings stored in your subconscious may be keeping you from your actually believing you can have the relationship, the job, the winnings, or the healthy body you desire. They combine to nullify the energy that is going out to help you achieve your current desires.
The law of attraction is a wonderful law and it works for everyone, all the time. It attracts people, places, and things to help you fulfill your dreams. It also brings challenges and struggles.
To make the law of attraction work for you, you must pay attention to three things: your thoughts, your feelings, and the way you respond to opportunities.
We get what we think about, we get what we talk about, we get what we feel in our guts, whether it’s good or bad. Our life experiences are the result of whatever is going on in our minds or coming out of our mouths. Life does not happen to us, it happens through us.

It is the new year, so now’s a great time to:
1. Wipe the slate clean.
2. Focus upon what you really want.
3. Chart your course.
Well… only if you want to risk having to repeat these steps for the same wishes next year! Maybe this is splitting hairs, but here’s an adventurous alternative:
1. Give thanks that life is… just as it is (and that it’s been… just as it’s been). Because of it, you’re now “READY.”
2. Define what you want in terms of the end result. Don’t worry about the hows, or even the course. KNOW that what you want is ALREADY yours in spirit, by divine LAW, just focus on the certainty of this ownership, understand it, claim it, and “it will be on earth, as it is in heaven (spirit).”
3. LET THE UNIVERSE show you the way via your impulses and instincts that appear as you take inspired action. Don’t worry that your first steps seem silly or futile. And if you don’t know what to do, do anything! Go! Get busy! Do not insist on intermediary successes, only upon the end result.
2012 is going to be your year (it already is)!!
Many of us suffer from body image issues; I’m too fat, too thin, etc., I believe when we are balanced in our mind, it is reflected in our bodies. I always say “What you focus on multiplies, so why not focus on the positive?” So the more we focus on what’s wrong with us, the more it shows up. So let’s change our habits, let’s stop “seeing” what’s “wrong” but let our thoughts be on our body being in harmony. Let us start by using the following affirmation:
I am a strong, confident, disciplined child of the Universe. I am established today in the awareness that my body is a living Temple. All the functions of my body are harmonized, and every organ is doing its perfect work in a perfect way. I am receptive and responsible this day to the Divine Intelligence within me which knows the needs of my body temple. I will eat sensibly, exercise regularly, and rest sufficiently. I am free from hidden hungers that might lead to excess in eating or drinking. The Universe’s love deep within me satisfies my longing heart and fills my soul and body with all that they require to make my life full and complete. My appetite and assimilation of food are in divine order, and my body manifests the symmetry and perfection of Divine Intelligence, whose expression I am. I see myself in the mirror of Truth, beholding the form and shape that I desire to express in my body. I see myself healthy and satisfied. Today I will think health!
How many of us suffer from the “yeah, but…” disease? You know the one that goes something like, “I can do it, yeah but such and such a person won’t like it?” or “I can open my own business, yeah but the economy is bad?”
We often allow this “yeah, but…” disease to cripple us. We have great ideas and here comes “yeah, but…” to stop us from executing them!
Let’s get rid of this disease!
Let’s put it where it belongs, where “butt” belongs, behind us! (Pun intended).
Step up, step out and take a chance! Execute your great ideas and help with eradication of the “yeah, but…” disease!
This is a beautiful poem, remember thoughts become things, think positive!
You Can If You Think You Can!
If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will.
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But soon or late the man who wins,
Is the man who thinks he can.
