posted by Alex Blackwell

“When I allow myself to celebrate what is good in my life that vibration ripples in my life and the world.” – Ellen Miller

When you wake up in the morning what’s the first thought that goes through your mind? Do you consider the day’s to-do list or the bills that need to be paid? Do you think about getting the car serviced or your children’s after-school schedule?

“Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.” – Oscar Wilde
