Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day

Look both ways before you cross the street
It is bad luck to open an umbrella in the house
Money does not grow on trees
Dry your hair before you go out to avoid a cold
Make sure to wear clean underwear in case you get in an accident
Eat all your food as there are starving kids in some countries
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

Do these statements sound familiar?  I was not sure why I was being told this and what it all meant.  Maybe I was too young or too concrete to make any sense of it.  Okay I still don’t get all of it.

Whatever the case there is some merit to those statements.
Make sure to look both ways and do your due diligence before investing or putting your money in someone else hands.  Get references and do your research. How much weight do you place on intuition, faith and trust.  There needs to be a balance.  Too much analysis can also result in paralysis.

Money does not grow on trees though there is a unlimited amount of it.  With the proper tools and knowledge along with taking massive action, anything is possible.  Finding the right coach/mentor and moving in the correct direction is also important.  This seems to take a lot more work and time.  There are lot of challenges along the way so you need to be persistent.  So while money is abundant it does not grow on trees.

When life throws you a curve ball, always think about things you should be happy and grateful.  We are truly blessed to have our health, loving family/friends, food on our plate and a roof over our heads.

Every day needs to be seen as a brand new day full of opportunities and abundance.
Our dog wakes up every morning with her tail wagging.  She jumps up with joy and is so excited to be here. It does not matter what time she wakes up.  Of course she even gets excited when you return after taking out the trash.

Wouldn’t it be great though if we all approached every day and every minute like our dog?  Provide the simple things in life as food, shelter, and love and your dog will be at your side forever.

People however are different and life sometimes is not so bright.

A couple we know just ended their relationship after being together 25 years. Another broke up after being together about 7 years. A person in our group had a sudden and unexpected death in the family. These are challenging times economically and it also strains relationships and health.

With all the challenges we face, it is easy to overlook the things that we should be grateful and happy about. It is so easy and habitual sometimes to fall back into fear and worry. I need to keep reminding myself and conditioning my mind to look at all the great things life has to offer,

I am grateful and happy that I now have good health
I am grateful and happy that I have love and support from family and friends
I am grateful and happy that I have our dog.
I am grateful and happy for all the things my mother taught me
I am grateful and happy that my mother is still around and
I get to say Happy Mothers Day

What are some of the things that makes you grateful and happy?
