Chapter 10, Page 20, Book 10

Every day is a gift! Before you get out of bed in the morning or even open your eyes, think of three things you are grateful for before your mind starts to think about your daily to-do list.

Ah…what a wonderful way to start a new day

It's WONDERFUL Wednesday!

Here are some Tips I found to be very useful for ensuring a more WONDERFUL day:

Nourish your mind and spirit on a continuous basis by feeding your mind with inspirational books/CDs.

Lighten-up and laugh more often.

Reach out to someone without being asked or expecting something in return.

Give a compliment to someone to whom you may have never complimented before.

Take a baby step or a giant step towards one of your goals and celebrate. Every step counts!

Practice patience and understanding. Just count to 10 or pause before reacting.

Take a break, even if only for 10 minutes and do something special for yourself.

Make a list of at least 5 things you are grateful for today.

I am celebrating the fact that Christmas Prep has begun. I've paints and brushes ready and my painting surfaces prepared ...let the fun begin!

I do hope your Wednesday is a WONDERFUL one.

'On Ya'-ma

I like it that just as soon as you finished cleaning the camper, you started something new. That makes it easier to give up one thing you like and go on to another. Happy Wednesday.
