Thought for the day……

Good Thursday morning and today is by the calendar the 23rd of August, 2012.

The sky is lightening up and the sun is rising …..

The air has a nice coolness to it making it comfortable to start the day.

Alvin loves to sit out on the deck and take in the morning air.

We are having a great morning and it is going to be a great day.

Work is going well.

On this day I am going to make certain that everything that I say is both pleasant and respectful to both me and the other person.

I always try to be most respectful to others but sometimes I need to work on the things that I say about myself.

I think that is true of most people.

We also have to work on taking a compliment.

I must admit I find that a tad “difficult” for some reason.

But each day I work on myself to be a better person ….. more kind ….. more gentle …. more respectful.

So on this day what are you working on?

I hope that you are successful….

Remember be in the moment, and be the best you that only you can be….

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Special Hello to:  my friends that live far away in Sweden and Brazil.  Have a great day.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Wow, it is WEDNESDAY, January 11th, 2012 (whoops had to correct to 2012 …. first typed 2011).

I must admit that I have written down 2011 a few times but right away caught myself and made the correction.

How many times have you inadvertently written down last year instead of this one?

It is okay …… after writing down 2011 for 365 days ….. it is no wonder that we take a few times to get it correct.

It is like anything in life …… sometimes you need a few tries to get it just right.

If we got everything perfect on the very first try …… how boring would that be.

We are human beings and although most of us try and would like to be perfect …..

As good as it may be …… we seldom reach that diamond glistening mirror ball.

That’s okay.

Actually I think we are perfect ….. really perfect just the way that we are…..

It is the things that we do and want that we think make us perfect or not.

We, ourselves ….. are perfection …… I am perfect for me and you are perfect for you.

Does this make sense?

I know that I work on and want to be the best me that I can be.

Not the best you or the best Miss Jones down the street.

But the best me.

I think that if we just be the best that we can be ….. that’s pretty great.

Don’t try to be someone else.

I hope that you all have a great great middle of the week.

Special Hello: to all my friends in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Sweden, British Columbia, Ontario, New York, Brasil and Alberta……. everywhere….

Always, Carol
