In 2012 we challenged you to write 12 letters of Gratitude to people that influenced your life. Many of you did this and wrote amazing stories of the experience.
This year 2013 we are focusing on BEING PRESENT. This is your life. Each day is a gift. You can't turn in yesterday for more time. So make the most of each day and continue to be grateful and embrace life! Be Present! We are changing the world...ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Don't you DARE be unkind to yourself!

Today I stumbled on a lovely and inspiring page...The author of the page was just as wonderful.   I thank him for his permission to repost this.  He calls himself Gusto and below you will find his name highlighted.  Just click it to read more of his amazing insights.  But this was one of my favorite and is a great complimentary post to yesterday's post.  Like milk and cookies, they go together nicely.  So, for today...I wanted to share with you what inspired me.  AND I LOVE THE PHOTO...doesn't she look like a beautiful butterfly?  I hope this makes you think, pause, grow and become.

Our thoughts, our dreams, our feelings, our ideas....they all have physical POWER. When we say "I WANT", whether it's spiritual growth, improvements in our relationships, our jobs, our finances, our health, ANYTHING, it has more impact on what "happens" in our lives than we might realize. Make a choice. Decide. The world and everything in it, all your hopes, dreams, and aspirations can and will become a reality. ~ Gusto

How Do You Talk To Yourself?

A man and his small son were out walking through the mountains and at one point, the little boy slipped 20-30 yards down the mountain side. Finally he was able to grab onto a tree branch and hold on, then he screamed out, "Help me!"

This voice boomed back, "Help me!"

He looked kind of confused and yelled, "Who are you?"

The voice boomed back, "Who are you?"

The small boy was aggravated and said, "You are a fool!"

The voice came back, "You are a fool!"

He said, "You are a coward!"

The voice yelled back, "You are a coward!"

Just about that time, his father got to him. The small boy asked his dad, "Who is that?"

His dad laughed and said, "Son, that's called an echo but really its called life. See, let me show you something son."

The dad hollered out, "You are a winner!"

The voice boomed back, "You are a winner!"

"You are talented!"

It came back, "You are talented!"

The dad yelled, "You've got what it takes!"

The voice rang out, "You've got what it takes!"

The dad said, "Son, that's how life is. Whatever you send out always comes back to you. The question is, what are you sending out about yourself? Start sending out I am strong, I am talented, and I am the best. I'll make it, I am creative, I am healthy, I am prosperous and I am victorious. What you send out is going to come back to you. 
Don't dare go through life being against yourself." By: Gusto
