Wednesday, November 25, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and FIVE giveaways!

I couldn't resist the title. Tomorrow is the big day! Today may be the last day of the countdown before the big day, but I remind you to live in gratitude each and every day, it will enrich your life in ways you never imagined.

Did you perform your 'pay it forward' yesterday? Did you perform your act of kindness? If so, please share it with us.

Let's focus today on ourselves. I know that many of you out there will begin your cooking and prep process today in anticipation of the cooking marathon that is Thanksgiving.

I know there are many of you out there that are 'bracing' yourselves. Bracing Yourselves for the annoying in-laws or sibling rivalry or some other holiday drama. And I want to remind you that it is not necessary to brace yourself. When you expect the worse, you will very well receive it. And in turn, when you expect the best, you make it happen.

Today I urge you to accept those you love for who they are! Is your son/daughter/sibling/parent bringing a guest you don't like? If the person you love, loves them, keep that in mind and focus on their redeeming qualities instead of what you don't like.

Remember, your house doesn't have to look like something out of Better Homes & Gardens, you do not have to set a table like Martha Stewart. You can set a table with mis-matched plates. You can omit the cornucopia the size of a small country. Fill your home with love, your heart with laughter, and your table with the foods you enjoy and you will have created a successful day.

I know there are some of you out there that will be spending some of your day at a soup kitchen, food pantry or local church, spreading your blessings with others, if you can, bring your children with you and have them take part in making their community a better place.

But regardless of how you plan to spend the big day, take some time today for yourself. To relax. To pamper yourself. Take a long hot bath. or take a long walk with your spouse, your kids and even your doggie. And before you start the marathon cleaning, decorating and cooking frenzy, make sure you take a moment to meditate and center yourself. Remember your focused breathing! Ask for help. Don't be an Island!!

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I will make it a point to express my gratitude today by being kind to MYSELF and others.'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
