chocolate brown bedroom geraniums with Virgil Gussie Gus Lil' Man Black

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can – at all times, dare to be!

Steve Maraboli - Life the Truth and Being Free

the more I learn the more I crave learning
the more my business grows the more, the better, the bigger I want it to grow and it does - it is - hooray !
the more often I can replace fear with love or kindness & acceptance the more of those feelings I want
the more my diet becomes clean & healthy (no sugar, very low carb) the more it's the way I want to eat
the more I read the more I want to read - so many amazing books so little (reading) time
the more I walk in a fast meditative way each morning the more I need this exercise for my mind, body & spirit
the more time I spend planning, scheming & daydreaming, the more amazing ideas I come up with
the more productive & disciplined I try to be, the more disciplined & productive I become
the more I desire from my life, the more that shows up in my life
the more I dream, the more my dreams come true
the more I can, the more I do. the more I do, the more I can

the more goodness I can cram into each & every day, the more I feel happy, content, accomplished & alive

it's kind of amazing, it really is

more amazingness - from Vancouver Hannah Georgas  - turn the volume up
