For every day or any day

Food affects mood. It’s all connected.

Be kind…rewind…and forgive the past misgivings of those who hurt you.

Forgive those who don’t fully appreciate you and your enthusiasm for life in general or for them in particular. They just don’t get it, and they might never. But that’s okay. Keep sending Light their way anyway — and keep shining forth across the board.

Remember the graciousness of true sportsmanship.

Stay away from the self-involved and self-absorbed, the bombastic. Gravitate towards the unselfish, the loving-kind, the subdued.

Be happy for the winners…the succeeders…the joyful spirits.

If how others perceive you isn’t working for you, recreate your presentation.

Friendship is sometimes like a piece of fruit: You can only squeeze so much juice before all you’re left with is a little pulp.

Demand it — and settle for nothing less.

Utilize any weakness you may have to make you strong.

It is impossible to please everyone. It doesn’t work. All we can do is be the best we can be…to try our hardest at being as loving-kind and respectful as we can, and move forward every day as joyfully and as generously and as graciously as possible.

Utilize and encourage the sentimental and effective tradition and lost art of sending real cards in the regular mail. Electronic cards are nice, but surely do not match the quality of care, time and effort that is invested into an old-fashioned, hand-written card.

All the beautiful words in the world are ugly and useless they are lived and believed.

Everyone has their own path. We can listen and maybe heed the advice and counsel of others, for better or for worse. But either way, the decisions are and should always be our own.

You’ve wanted to reach certain goals, and it hasn’t happened yet, and you’re like, “Ok, when is this gonna’ happen?” Be patient. It’ll happen. It’s all about timing. But nothin’ is gonna’ happen if you keep doubting yourself (and others) by diggin’ up the seed you planted. Just keep watering the seed with your faith, belief in your objective, let it go and let it grow. Meanwhile, too, be happy with what you have already, and where you are. Be as positive as you can be with everything you do and say. And then just sit back and watch for the magic to happen….to have your goal realized and materialized — along with many other wonderful things.

Life is full of disappointments. But that’s okay — just make new appointments!

Eliminate your enemies by making them your friends.
