Sunday Sunshine: You Can Do It!

The glass is half full or it's half empty. Which is it? It's all in your perspective.

The same is true with what you can or can't do. It's all in your perspective. 

We hear story after story of people who have exceeded their limitations, gone against all odds to accomplish great things.

You are "wired" to do great things, too. When you direct your energies toward accomplishing something and do so with a can-do spirit, you may surprise yourself and find that you can do far more than you ever thought imaginable.

Today, this week: Remember that you are filled with energy to manifest the things you desire. Believe in yourself. You can do it!

Sunday Sunshine: Keep Going

While out on my daily walk one day this spring, I came across a cheery, hopeful message written in various colors of chalk on the sidewalk ahead of me. "Just keep going," it said. Over it was a bright chalk rainbow.

During this strange and often frightening time of COVID-19 where all that has been normal seems to have been upended, I felt as if I needed that encouragement to just keep going. And likely, so do you.

The road isn’t always clear. A sudden detour can take us on an unfamiliar route. It’s okay to check your surroundings and get your bearings. 

But, don’t let the detours of life stop you. Just keep going.

Even if the horizon feels far away, just keep going. 

Keep pursuing your dreams, keep spreading your light, keep taking good care of you, keep taking good care of others. Whatever you do, it’ll be worth every step. Good things will be waiting for you. 

But you have to keep going.

Stay strong, stay focused, stay hopeful. Look for the rainbows after the rain. 

When the way ahead is unclear, rely on your faith, hang onto hope and have confidence that the path will reveal itself -- exactly when the time is right. Just keep going.

Today, this week: Stay strong. Stay focused. Stay hopeful. Stay centered. Just keep going.

Sunday Sunshine: Bloom and Grow

Spring is the season of tilling and planting, greening and growing, blossoming and flourishing.

Take a cue from nature and bloom where you’re planted. Rise and shine! 

Your gifts are needed in this world. Make that place where you are right now better through the beauty of your talents, generosity and kindness.

Be your best self, your very best self. Think about what you think, say and do. Is it your best self? If not, make adjustments. As you grow and become, you will bloom and grow. You will rise and shine.

Today, this week: Rise, shine! Bloom where you are. Be your best self.

Sunday Sunshine: Release Your Burdens

The load can be heavy at times. Your head and heart can become weighted by fears, concerns, worries and challenges, especially during these uncertain days of Coronavirus. 

It's no wonder that when we feel down, our shoulders slump and our eyes are downcast.

Take a deep breath, shake the tension out of your body, lift your arms outward and smile. 

You are loved. Feel the energy of that love as if it is a big hug enveloping you. Feel the rays of hope warming every aspect of your being. Feel assured that better days will come.

Today, this week: Release your burdens. Lift those things that no longer serve you from your shoulders. Allow them to float away. Know that you are loved. Know that better days will come.
