Open your heart to possibilities, allowing the light of God to give you what you need. You can have plans; however, you must allow space for surprises, delights, connections, and the time it takes for things to unfold.

Hope comes from the head and heart, through the soul and the spirit. Don’t get stuck in a ‘little idea’ of you, but find freedom in knowing that beyond you, there is a force working to pick up the pieces in the darkest hours, the brightest days and even through confusion and healing!

The four-letter word “Life” has allowed us to be here today. Whatever thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and actions we have had have caused us to be right where we are.

Are you satisfied? What would it take to satisfy you? …Honestly, have you taken the time to consider what thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and actions you would need to choose in order for you to be satisfied? It’s a lot of work.

What do you really want? In your life, home and relationships? What qualities do you want in your mate? In your spiritual life and community? In your finances and health? In your work and educational endeavors? That’s a lot to consider.

Why does it matter? Oftentimes, we are conditioned to think, feel, and act in certain ways – based on cultural influences from a young age. So really think about it. Patterns or habits could be keeping you right where you are.

When you were in kindergarten or first grade, you were probably enthusiastic, daring, energetic, and a risk-taker, ready to raise your hand as soon as a teacher formed a question. Outgoing. Confident. Tenacious.

What happened? Even if you were more introverted, there was probably an inner knowing that pushed you to try things, explore and ask questions, until you were satisfied with the results. Yet, one day, somebody might have said, “Children should be seen and not heard.” Or, “Do as I say, not as I do.” Or, how about just “NO!”

So please choose! Choose your attitude – it will make you and break you. Choose the thoughts that will put a smile on your face (you’ll look and sound better!). Choose your feelings about yourself, abilities, and your current circumstances (emotions are temporary, feelings are where you live) and reinforce them with what you actually want. Choose your actions – “With practice and a plan, I will get the results I really want.”

Are you willing? Think about one thing you really want – perhaps it’s confidence, patience or love, just choose one – and focus on that one word every morning seven times, and every night seven times, in your mirror for seven days, and imagine the gift YOUR LIFE will reveal.
