There are many opportunities for magic and intimacy with your partner. In the mornings, my wife and I usually share a cup of tea together as we look out our bedroom window into our beautiful backyard filled with lavender, roses, jasmine, butterfly bushes and the multicolor of nature. We have many types of birds, including many hummingbirds and butterflies that come to visit. This morning, my wife noticed a beautiful yellow and black oriole on one of the shrubs as it was getting ready to ease into our birdbath to bathe.
We stood near our window without moving, watching this special moment, as our oriole is a bit nervous and scares easily. Only when it feels safe will it go to the birdbath and enter the water to wash itself and play. To our delight, it flew down to the side of the birdbath and made sure the coast was clear. It entered the water and splashed about and then shook it feathers after a satisfying bath.
In this moment, Denise and I were one, like little kids immersed in the wonders of nature. It was magic, we were so close as we shared this intimate experience. Time stopped. It filled our hearts with joy and everything else faded away as we watched this oriole make use of our birdbath. After all, this is why we have it and keep the water fresh and clean. To give these beautiful birds a safe place to drink, wash off and play and we have so much joy watching.
This experience only lasted for a few minutes, but the power of it, the fullness of it was intense. It made my day. It was one of life’s magic moments 0f intimacy. It was actually a date that Denise and I shared. No, it wasn’t dinner and a show or a specially planned date, but it was a date. In our lives, these are the types of moments that create a special intimacy for us. We could be sitting holding each others hand, watching the ocean, having a meal or watching the birds or butterflies in our back yard. Life gives you many opportunities for closeness and intimacy if you are open and aware.

Elephants are so powerful and magnificent. They have tremendous hearts and compassion. Elephants symbolize strength, wisdom and prosperity.
In this picture, although a storm is approaching, the elephants take life step by step, always moving forward toward their destination or goal. They do not let the fear or concern of the approaching storm affect them and their actions. They move forward with awareness. They are a family and stay together, helping one another.
Life gives you lessons for your greatest growth and development every moment. Opportunities for your success are all around you. Be open, be aware and be ready.
So many people want success instantaneously. They want things right now without being willing to follow natural laws or proper principles. Many want the rewards without doing the work. Anything worth doing is worth doing well and it requires time….. one step at a time.
No great achievement or success was built overnight or instantaneously. All success requires a proper foundation which can sustain it. There is an expression that it takes a village to raise a child. Similarly, it takes a great deal of time, effort and dedication to create success.
Becoming a true success requires being a successful person. You must develop qualities of honesty, integrity, service, compassion, kindness, leadership and sincerity. Humility, acceptance, acknowledgement, discernment and appropriateness go a long way. Do the right thing for its own sake and be an example when no one is watching.
Success must also be measured properly, as it is not just a function of money. Health (spiritual, mental, emotional & physical), joy, quality relationships, time in nature, perfect self-expression are all fundamental components of true success along with financial wealth.
Give yourself the opportunity to actualize your full, creative potential……your divine design. Look at what your most wonderful and magnificent life is and create your game plan for success. Write out all of the details of what you want your life to be. Live your dream one step at a time. You are here to do great things and most often that means taking many small steps in a positive direction.
The truth is you are already a success. God does not make mistakes. Do you acknowledge how successful you are right now? Make a list of all the good things in your life and be thankful.
What matters most is the love, care, encouragement and acknowledgement that you give. This is what people remember, they remember how you make them feel.
May you manifest the divine plan of your life, under grace and in perfect ways.
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity;
An optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty
Life is an opportunity. Every moment contains within it exactly what you need to grow and thrive.
Being physically healthy is such a vital part of living a successful life. Don’t you agree? What about your mental and emotional health? How much does your mental and emotional health contribute to your physical and financial health?
To have a positive attitude you must be optimistic about yourself and life. You expect good things, good situations and good opportunities. You remain positive and optimistic in the face of negative appearances. You are strong mentally and emotionally.
Optimists smile frequently and pessimists frown. Optimistic people look at problems as temporary setbacks and look to create solutions. Pessimistic people look at problems as permanent and do not think they can do anything to change them. They complain a lot.
There is a big difference in reacting vs. responding to life, situations and circumstances. An optimist looks at challenges and responds creativity where as a pessimist looks a challenges and complains, reacts and tends to be a victim.
Optimists see challenges, problems and difficulties as opportunities for growth, creativity and success. They have a healthy attitude and know that every adversity contains within it the seed of an equal of greater benefit!
An optimist stays cool, calm and collected in the face of challenges. They see clearly what is happening and make better decisions and create solutions. An optimist is more healthy because they are less stressed about life and situations. An optimist also has more energy and a higher vibration because they take things more lightly than pessimists.
What is your pattern? It is either victim or victory!
Have a wonderful and prosperous day!

Below is a video about the oldest living Holocaust survivor. Her attitude is remarkable. She is grateful and optimistic about life even after living through what most people would consider a nightmare.
“One of the main qualities it takes to be successful is energy……it may be the only thing.”
Living with a strong, positive energy is so important to having a healthy, wonderful and successful life.
It requires just as much energy to be positive as it does to be negative; however the impact on your life and on others is mega. Being negative kills and destroys life, relationships and all acts of creation. Being positive nurtures and empowers people, life and relationships.
A negative thought instantly drops all energy and health to your cells in your body like a lead balloon. A positive thought expands your cells and adds energy and vitality to your health and body. It makes you feel like you are flying.
Have you noticed the impact you make when you say something negative? Once you say it, you can never take it back. It is better to remain silent than be negative. Every thing can be said in an appropriate way without having to be negative. When you are teaching others, a little acknowledgement goes a long way. So does a sincere smile and encouragement.
How do you feel when you are acknowledged and encouraged?
How do others feel when you acknowledge and encourage them?
Does their energy and confidence grow and increase?
In life there are challenges and obstacles that can appear on your path. By having a strong, positive energy, you are able to navigate the bumps and transcend them. You do not have to take them personally.
The higher your energy and vibration, the easier it is to flow through life and go beyond the challenges. When you have a low energy, the challenges usually have greater consequences and it is harder to transcend them and not be affected by them.
As always, life is about making choices, not excuses. You are all blessed with the freedom of choice and the co-creative ability. What do you want right now? What choice are you making for your health, family and quality of life and career?
Being positive creates a huge difference in the energy, people and outcomes you attract. People cannot resist and positive and enthusiastic person.
Have a positive attitude and smile often, it makes a huge difference in the quality of your health & wealth.
Have a Wonderful & Prosperous Week!
