Inspiring Messages for a Happier Day
By Mina Parker
We often wake up with so much on our minds it’s overwhelming to think about what to tackle first. It is important to know that even when there is too much to do and too little time, or too many bills and too little money, we can live the good life.
How? We can embrace simplicity as a desired outcome rather than a hardship we can’t control. We can throw ourselves into new creation and transform our circumstances into new opportunities. Most of all, we can give back and move forward through a daily practice of gratitude and appreciation for the moments of joy that each day brings us. Here are thirteen inspiring morning messages.
