I am sitting here in a quiet house enjoying a beautiful night and thinking about my friends and family.  And as I sit here, I look around at my house being thankful for so much.  I realize that when I slip out of the thought of being thankful and grateful life no longer flows as smoothly as when I remember to be grateful for everything that comes my way.  As I strive to be more open and to communicate and include more people in my life I have to remember to be grateful for all that I am adding to my life.  Sometimes, I am just grateful for someone’s creativity for the fact that they are giving me their best.  I remember reading one time that couples in a relationship often love each other yet they tend to fight because they don’t understand how the other one loves them — communication is important for every relationship.  As I learn to communicate more effectively I can see stronger bonds form between me and others because I am able to give them what they need and often in the way that they need it or at least they understand the “how” or the way in which I love them.

I watch my son as he learns how to show love in new ways and I smile.  He is a master of hugging already and is learning to kiss now which is always really cute.  Sometimes he grabs people a little abruptly and I just remind them that, that is how he is showing them love – that is all he knows – love is all he knows at this point and that is amazing.

Be in the flow of life – live in-spir(it)ed!  Love somebody today and be grateful for the way they love you.

Today I am grateful for this life that I have created, for my friends, my family, for buying myself a stroller so that I can exercise with my son, for being disciplined and practicing daily, for learning and for this great journey.

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”  ―    Mother Teresa

I know when i was younger I was very idealistic – I guess I still am in many ways.  I have seen the impact one person can have on many, I have seen one persons ideas spread like a viral video on YouTube.  And I have seen and experienced the impact I can have just by doing one small thing each day with love.  Use love to your advantage, spread love, Be Love.

I don’t know where I found this … but I thought I would share it.

A Creed To Live By ~ Nancye Sims

Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special. Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important.

Only you know what is best for you. Don’t take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.

Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.

Don’t give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying. Don’t be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that binds us to each other. Don’t be afraid to encounter risks.

It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave. Don’t shut love out of your life by saying it’s impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give love. The fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings. Don’t dismiss your dreams.

To be without dreams is to be without hope; to be without hope is to be without purpose. Don’t run through life so fast that you forget not only where you’ve been, but also where you’re going. Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
