If somebody says something about you that you know in your heart is not true, you would probably just laugh and not be bothered by it. But what if somebody says something about you that may actually be true? Such as mentioning that you are a lazy, or messy? Do you get mad? Do you get offended? Or do you simply smile and forget about it? Read more
For most people in the U.S., today is Thanksgiving… where friends and family gather ’round the table, share some good food and good times.
in addition to the things that most are thankful for, there’s also the opportunity to be thankful for the “All” by recognizing the totality gratitude.
It’s very easy to be thankful for the things we consider “blessings.”
We might say, “I’m thankful for my family, food, god, etc.”
However true gratitude encompasses the all. Meaning: being grateful for everything.
Metaphysically, to be thankful for one thing is the equivalent of being thankful for everything…because everything is connected – everything is one. Unfortunately most don’t see it that way…they pick and choose.
So, instead of (consciously) singling out things and only being thankful for the blessings, be thankful for the all.
Without these other things, we would not have anything to be thankful for.
Find it within yourself to be thankful for the boss who fired you, so that you could start your own business.
Be thankful for meeting your ex-wife in order to have the children that you had, or even the learning experience you shared.
Be thankful for the economy for creating opportunity when some opportunities are not seen
Be thankful for the all and you’ll experience the true meaning of Thanksgiving.
Namaste and thank you!
Has anyone ever said to you, “Have a nice day…”

If you’re like most people, you probably said, “Thanks, you too…” and went about your way…not putting much thought into it.
Most people say “have Read more

As a child you may have wanted a toy in the store but didn’t tell your parents because you knew they wouldn’t buy it. Or perhaps when you were in high school, you liked someone but didn’t tell them your feelings since you knew you would be rejected. How could you have possibly known those things?
You didn’t, you simply assumed.
What’s Wrong With Assuming?
Simple, assumptions are not always true. They are only what you Read more
Do you let other people push your buttons? Do you let other people annoy you to the point that you start to have a bad day? It’s not that they really annoy you – it’s actually you who is annoying yourself.
When your wife asks you a dozen times as to what time you will be home, she’s simply asking – it’s you who gets annoyed thinking that she is nagging. Or perhaps your husband tells you that he’ll be home late. He’s simply letting you know – it’s you who gets annoyed thinking that he just wants to hang late with the boys.
It’s always you who controls what annoys and irritates you; no one else. It’s your choice to allow someone to ‘push your buttons’. You allow yourself to be irritated by somebody who shouldn’t have that power. You let them take control, and steal that good mood from you.
When you let someone push your buttons, it’s because you choose to let them. It’s your choice that you let them control your mood. You have no one to blame but yourself. When you no longer allow anyone to snatch your happiness or joy from you, then you’re truly in control of your reality. You will begin to feel good and confident about yourself and your life.
Stay away from those who bring you down, and start to be happy on your own and with others who have good characteristics which you want to adopt.
We know that in order to build anything we need to have a goal. In order to achieve that goal planning and preparation are required. The same could be said for your life. Read more
