ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SATURDAY, JULY 26TH, 2014
58 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunrise: 6:18 am
Sunset: 8:52 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is All or Nothing Day. It is certainly as day of extremes. If you're a gambler, it's a day to go for broke. A little drastic day, perhaps. There's definitely no grey area in how you spend this day. Do something you've never done before or always wanted to do. It's time to quit testing the waters and playing the 'what if’ game.
I hope you have it all on All or Nothing Day, and every day.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
After all is said and done, a lot more will have been said than done.
The Romans understood All or Nothing Day so well they had a saying: Carpe Diem or seize the day. All Or Nothing Day takes that spirit and urges people to break through their barriers, ignore the fears that hold them back, and make that big commitment to a better life. Seize the day; the rest of your life won’t wait forever.
I’m very fond of saying there is something good to be found in every day. Every day is filled with new possibilities. I like to think that in my life, I’ve had it all. All I ever needed. Maybe I didn’t have high aspirations like some do but I have a wonderful family and they are what I wanted. I always wanted to be a mom. I wanted to be a housewife. A career outside the home wasn’t something I wanted, but did become a necessity. Now I’m back to staying at home and although I’m often the only one here, I do love it.
We’ve all heard the expression:Today is the the first day of the rest of your life. Well today is the day to give something your all or don’t even bother to do it at all. As for me, I’m giving it my all !
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for over a year and have now reached over 1800 gifts. On my way to 2000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1886. for all the days of my life, they have been a blessing indeed
1887. for my family, they are my all in all
1888. for my faith, I have a God that I can turn to in any situation
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
