Monday Musings & Inspiration: A Formula for Joy!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

As I went through our Christmas ornaments and other related items this weekend, I spotted a silver star ornament engraved with the word, "JOY".  We all have access to an infinite amount of joy, there is no limit!

 

What limits our joy is our thoughts about whatever situation we are in. They keep us cemented in our condition, and we reinforce it with having others sympathize and create a momentum that will definitely make the condition persist.

 

"The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it."

~ Eckhart Tolle

 

We are adamant about staying in the present, because as I have often said all we have is now.  And all we have to do is make the present wonderful.

 

"The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present."

~ Eckhart Tolle

 

"Everything you do is based on the choices you make. It's not your parents, your past relationships, your job, the economy, the weather, an argument or your age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make. Period."

~ Wayne Dyer

 

And we love these words by Esther Hicks.  She is a dear friend and someone we have known for many years.  I hope they inspire you as much as they have us.

 

"Your life is right now! It's not later! It's not in that time of retirement. It's not when the lover gets here. It's not when you've moved into the new house. It's not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it's not ever going to get better than right now-until it gets better right now!"

~ Esther Hicks

 

Happy Monday, Happy Now!

Wishing you an Abundance of JOY!

Top of the morning.  Your friend Esther is very insightful.  I also find it fun to reopen Christmas Ornaments every year in that it seems a different one always jumps out to elicit special memories.  Best to you for the season.  Mark

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho we have two boxes of ornaments, and I usually use the smaller one for the few decorations on the wreath and mantle. This year I went into the larger box, so that I could send my niece a all the wooden toys for tree, for her kids. I found two ornaments that I have no idea who gave them to us...They are really nice, A
