Marvelous Monday: Never Turn Your Back On Life

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

"Life was meant to be lived and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life." --- Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), American first lady, lecturer, humanitarian

Having a hard time getting started this Monday morning? At least you have a choice in how you start your day.

Do you feel like you have a heavy load to carry? Think again, it could be worse.

Are you easily annoyed by the little things in life that don't seem to matter - what if only the little things in life really mattered?

Can't find something to wear today? What if you had to wear the same thing every day?

Having a conflict? Do you know you can call a ceasefire any time you want?

What if, instead of watching television today, you spent the day watching and looking out for the ones you love?

Life should never be taken for granted. If you were born in the U.S.A., freedom is your inheritance - cherish it, rediscover it, embrace it and never forget that freedom comes with a price to pay but joys of having it are rewarding.

Have a great day today and remember, everything you do, your words and actions cause ripples of effect in your world. Make sure that whatever you do has a postive impact on others. Every action you take creates a form of energy and once you put it out there, it causes a rippling effect that naturally gets bigger and bigger. Once your energy is set in motion, you can't stop it... Think about your actions.

Everyone has responsibility, even those who are not in uniform. When I go about my business today, I will be mindful of my actions, my thoughts and my deeds. When I see an American flag in public buildings, or flying underneath the blue sky today, I will think about where my freedom came from and why freedom matters. I will think about the red, white and blue and what it means to different people. To some, it means they will have a job, a family, making a down payment on a house, taking a vacation; for some, it will remind them of the sacrifices it took to gain freedom. Freedom should never be taken for granted.

Hurray for the Red, White and Blue and for our American Soldiers. God Bless them, one and all.

Myrl,

I noticed on the news last night that the Dalai Lama was in Chicago. Had I known, I would have tried to get there, even if I would have driven my car. He's such an inspiration to me. Thanks for sharing those words by him. Those words are very profound and when you stop to think about it, it's completely true! I've known people who held grudges their whole life, only to find out, the other person wasn't even aware of the bad feelings someone had against them. So it's true, the only person who would really hurt in this incident, is the person holding the grudge. Thanks for sharing the information and the Dalai's insights. He's a wise man!

Ceil and Carl,

That' sounds like a very special plaque. It's serve you well for more than 50 years and those are good words to live by. I remember I had a dish shaped like a tea kettle hanging on my kitchen wall from the day I got married and even though, I never remarried, the words made a huge impact on me and I'll never forget them. It said, "To make a marriage a happy one, you need a lot of love, mixed in with pride and caring, and sharing things you do. If you blend these all together, you will find, as man and wife, this recipe for happiness brings joy into your life." I hope you read these words, because I want you to have them. I was born to be a "for better or worse, until death do US part," type of woman, and I'll take those words with me, to my grave.

Toni - thank you for recognizing my passion. I take writing seriously. It comes from my soul and to receive input back as wonderful as yours, gives me reason to know, that no matter what happens today, my day started out good or ended up wonderful, just because of people in the RAIN like you!

That is the lesson I learned from supporting our troops - you can not say thank you enough!

Thank you:)
