Have a Magnificent Day!

Do What’s Most Important

Playful Pandas Having Fun

 

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the coffee.

A college professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.
When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large, empty mayonnaise jar
and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full.  They agreed that it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar.
He shook the jar lightly.  The pebble rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full.  They agreed it was full.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.
Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.

The students responded with a unanimous “yes!”

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured
the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand.
The students laughed.  “Now,” said the professor, as the laughter subsided, “I want you
to recognize that this jar represents your life.  The “golf balls” are the important things —
your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions —
Things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

“The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car….

The sand is everything else — the small stuff.” If you put the sand into the jar first,”
he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life.  If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff,
you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

“Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Play with your children.
Take time to have medical checkups.
Take your partner out to dinner.
Have fun – Go to the beach or play another 18 holes.
There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.

Take care of the “golf balls” first — the things and people that really matter.
Set your priorities.
The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.
The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked,” he said.
“It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,
there’s always room for a cup of coffee with a friend!!!”

Go With The Flow

Sea Turtle Going With The Flow


How is your flow going?
Do you create the flow or do you respond to the flow in the best possible way?

See how this Sea Turtle glides using the flow to maximize his stroke.

The energy and flow of life gives you the same opportunity to maximize your stroke.
Being present and in tune with the flow of the moment, you can navigate the best course.
This allows you to maximize your resources and results.

Life is the playing field for you to actualize your divine potential.
You choose the way you want to play the game and what direction you want to go.
It all flows from your energy, your heart, your thoughts, your words and your actions.

You probably notice that life does not always go the way you plan or that you prefer.
This is when your decisions are very important, as you can waste much of your energy and resources resisting the way things are and attempting to manipulate people and circumstances to be the way you want.  This is the trap of the ego.

There is another path of being aware of what is happening and responding to the moment with the most appropriate choice that is good for all concerned.  You still have free choice, but you are not resisting the moment and the way things are.  You are simply being appropriate and therefore going with the flow and not wasting your resources and precious energy by resisting life.

So much of life is out of your control.  Yet you always have the freedom of choice and if and how you want to respond.

The past is history, the future is a mystery.  This moment is a gift, that is why it is called the present.

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.  But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.  There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”

What Sharp Teeth You Have!


Life sometimes brings powerful challenges that can cause you to lash out at yourself or others.

Keeping you composure and sharing only positive, encouraging words is not always easy.
One of the greatest lessons is learning how to deal with your own anger and moods.
A good friend shared this story with me years ago……

Advertisement

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. 
His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper,
he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence. 

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. 
Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger
the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. 
He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Advertisement

Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all.
He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out
one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.
The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. 
The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.

He said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. 
The fence will never be the same.  When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.  You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. 
It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there.”

A verbal wound can be as bad or even worse than a physical one.

 

“Everything said should be true, not everything true should be said.”

                                                  Dr. Henry Lieberman

 

“There is a nice way to say everything.”

                                                  Denise Papier

 

Your words should be used to heal, delight, inspire & prosper.

Friends are a very rare jewel indeed. 
They make you smile and encourage you to succeed;
they lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always open their hearts to us.

Fable of the Porcupine

posted by The MEGA Coach

 

from a friend…..

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.
The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm.
This way they covered and protected themselves, but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions. 

Advertisement

After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.   So, they had to make a choice: accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. 

Wisely, they decided to get back together and work it out.  They learned to live with the little wounds caused by their close relationship in order to stay warm and survive.

Moral of the Story:

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person’s good qualities.

We must learn to accept each other and to live together.
  We all have to share this planet and its resources.  By following proper principles and The Natural Laws we can all share this planet’s natural resources and abundance.  We must find the most appropriate and beneficial ways to live in accordance with nature and the earth, not at the expense of each other or our planet.

Kindness, gentleness and compassion……..
