"Sabe aquela dor oculta em seu coração?
Aquela preocupação que aflige seus
pensamentos?Aquele medo escondido em
sua alma? Entregue àquele que tudo pode
resolver, age nas suas possibilidades e confie o
resto ao Criador do universo!" #deus#fé#confiança#faith#hope#goodmorning#bomdia#god
Here's the thing about #life. Many of us are in search of "happiness". We think: "Oh, I'll be #happy when I JUST have THIS. This better car. This better job. This better boss. This perfect #relationship. When I lose weight. If I could just do X...I'd be happy". ...
No. I can't express how much is wrong with this thinking. This actually leads to constant
Your #time is NOW. It's right here, #today. Your #moment is passing. We have to #live life in the #present- (and somewhat in the forward- as its great to write down #goals, make #vision boards, #imagine what you want to strive for the #future- as this is a great source of #hope and #excitement)- but mainly in the present. See, everything you want to have in the future, will take YOUR #action- today. Everything can be broken down into simple steps. But it's up to you to find what you can do each day to achieve it. ...
But, a happy life- starts with #gratitude for what we already have. I will share that the last time I stood on these steps, these exact same steps- some three years ago- I didn't understand this. At all. On that trip, I was with a guy that I thought I loved- but over time, became so focused on what we or I, didn't have, that I couldn't even #appreciate what we did. ...
It's so refreshing to come back to #Madrid and #Barcelona and see some of the same #sights, and some new, and yet be having a completely different #experience. I am so #humbled this time by what I already possess in every aspect of my life- that being here has just been #phenomenal. I've missed a train, #ran my slowest #marathon ever, and it's #raining today- and all I can think about is just how damn #lucky I am to be here and how #amazing every single step has been- even the ones I took in tremendous pain during that race.
Embrace a spirit and mentality of abundance, not scarcity. The best time to give to others is anytime you've got something. The more we give back, and appreciate what we have, the more the universe tends to bestow on us. Call it the law of attraction or the "secret" or whatever you want. But it's true. Your thinking brings about more of the same. As my boss says: what we think about, grows.
On Friday our shop will be closed! I was honored to have Hospice Niagara ask me to be apart of their annual Volunteer Retreat!! We will be making Welcome Signs, workshops will be running all day!! The Hospice Volunteer's have vital jobs in our communities. I am not one to share personal posts on my business page! But, given this circumstance I will. I personally will be forever grateful for a Hospice Volunteer her name was Gail and she was from Napanee. I met Gail on the worst day of my entire life. My Mother was dying of a brain tumor. I was young and terrified. My world was upside down. I was emotional, terrified, and simply overwhelmed. And then I met Gail she had a job that day. I was her family. She gave me the greatest comfort and I needed it. I will never forget Gail. These beautiful people spend time with families just like mine everyday. We are the broken families. We are the families that are forever grateful for the volunteers who help us in our time of need. I am looking forward to Friday and sharing my THANK-YOU will all of the amazing people at Hospice Niagara!! #paint#LOVE#lovemyjob#ThankYou#Hope#Family
