BEING A SURVIVOR

Oh man, how many times do we have to try and overcome a crisis in our lives? Admittedly, most of these "hard" times are ones we bring on ourselves but it never seems to get much easier.One thing all of us have in common is that we will find ourselves dealing with all sorts of "problems" as we wind our way along this soometimes rocky path of life. I feel its how we face these times that make us either a better person or one who continues to lose their grip on things.I read a quote that was attributed to Mother Teresa and I just love it! She stated:"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle, I just wish that He didn't trust me so much." Ya gotta love that quote. But as always I truly believe we can overcome anything when we get our minds attuned with that "inner being" which is truly who we are.From the Science of Mind comes another nugget of wisdom: "Then, as the mist disappears before the sun, so shall adversity melt before the shining radiance of our exalted thought." So may I suggest that you keep a wary eye on your inner most thoughts especially when confronted with any obstacle.And out thoughts today are what makes up our tomorrows.Take the mental part of you and attune the thoughts to what it is you wish to manifest in your life.And remember as Emerson once said;" People only see what they are prepared to see.My hope is that all of you are at this one eternal moment find yourself happy, feeling well, and finding much joy in all that transpires in your life. As always too, please take a moment and do something nice for someone else and then for yourself as well!

I find myself more than not leaving here with lingering thoughts-good thoughts of course.You are good for people,Cap.You remind us of things- as in how precious a day could be or a starry night, or? how we should reach out to a neighbour or a stranger.You reminds us that we're not alone and the world doesn't seem as ugly as we had thought.We're, well, I am, grateful for you and your words of encouragement, compassion, and wisdom.A jewel you are...hope you know this:)

Hugs to you ole friend.

Hey Ron! Another thought provoking post...kind of reminds me of Carlos Casteneda. I haven't read him for years, but I remember a bit of it...one of my favourites, "We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same."
And I agree with Dee, you are a jewel! Peace to you and have a great day!
