Today's Words of Inspiration - What color is YOUR Grass?

The Grass is ALWAYS greener on the other Side! Well isn't it?

 How Green is YOUR Grass?

First, you didn't have grass, so you just wanted Grass. Then you got that Grass, and before you took the time to even enjoy it, you saw someone else had a lawn, and then you wanted that Lawn. That big, lush, manicured lawn with life-sized Topiaries. What happened to those simpler times when you would have been just happy with the grass?

Don't worry about how big, how lush, or how much greener the neighbor's lawn might be, roll around in your own. Be grateful for the one you have. Give THANKS for the patch you have. It won't ever be bigger, fuller, lusher, or prettier until you enjoy it, RIGHT NOW, AS IS. Yes, as is.

Today's Challenge: See How Green Your Grass Really Is

Yes, your grass is green! You worked hard for that grass. So enjoy it. Make some memories! Go toss the ball around with the kids, play fetch with the dog, lay down and look at the clouds and try to find different shapes in them. Or tonight just lay out on it and count the stars. Have a cookout with your friends and neighbors. Later in life you won't even care or remember how lush that grass was, but you will remember the memories you created there. Don't fall victim to the 'grass is always greener mentality', Be a Victor and be Thankful for the grass you've got! Whether it's astro turf or crabgrass, it's YOURS, and that is something to be PROUD of! That doesn't mean I don't encourage you to reach higher, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a goal to reach toward, just enjoy your current achievements along the way.

Today's Words of Inspiration'

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 'I am grateful for all that I am and all that I've achieved so far!'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about 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.

  1. Hi Tracy. This is what I have been praying about lately. Seeing the positives and the things I should be so grateful for right here each and every day. It's all about balance for me this year and to not let worry run away with me. Last year seemed very negative and I'm determined that with a positive attitude this year doesn't have to be the same. I have to much to be thankful for. My grass is already looking greener.

    Hugs...Tracy :)
