Which party?

I purchased an artsy little poster on a recent visit to Omaha.  It says: "You choose which party you shall attend!"  This powerful quote and associated artwork is by Mary Anne Radmacher.
So, which party are you attending here on earth?  The one with the fun, uplifting, adventuresome people who are always ready to do, be and have something new? -or- The doom-and-gloom party with the folks who discuss the problems of the world and their lives ad nauseum, and who see nothing good to celebrate?
Edwene Gaines, fabulous spiritual teacher, says, "Earth is the party planet, didn't you know?"  We did not come here to suffer! We are here to glorify life with ever-expanding joy. 
Maybe it's time for a change of party?  Worth considering...

How new? How alive?

This quote comes from Chris Michaels: "You are alive only to the degree that you're trying something new." Trying something new pulls us out of our comfort zone, and stirs up that God-given, powerful, creative force within us. It brings us into the flow of life that is always seeking to expand through us.  
How alive will you be today?  What new thing, no matter how small, can you try? Here are some ideas:
-compliment a job well done
-smile and greet a stranger
-start that art project you've been considering
-sign up for a class
-start a garden
-sing and dance
Whatever your "something new" is, enjoy!

What do you value?

Today’s Notes from the Universe by Mike Dooley:
“In all of time and space, can you think of anything more valuable than just another day? How's that for a reality-check?”

How will you experience this precious day?  In love and laughter, doing what you enjoy?  Or surviving to the weekend?  Worth considering, I’d say.  
Joyful Thursday to you!

What's for breakfast?

I love this quote by Alfred Montapert: “Welcome problems and eat them for breakfast.” 
What a conquering, can-do, powerful attitude--even better than Wheaties! 
Let's release any hang-overs from yesterday, chow down on any potential worries for the day, and head off into the next 24 hours with a clean slate of "Life is good!"
Lovin' life, spreadin' joy!
