The eyes are the windows of the soul. This ancient proverb reminds us how our innermost thoughts and emotions find expression, literally, in the blink of an eye. How important, then, for our eyes to mirror a spirit cleansed of negativity and radiant with hope and encouragement for all whose lives we touch. Each morning we spend considerable time and energy on physical rituals to make ourselves presentable for the day. Yet often we rush into the world with smudges on our soul.
The legend of two wolves contains a recipe for purifying the inner self. An elder, teaching his grandchildren about life, describes a fight between two wolves that takes place inside each one of us. One wolf is evil and the other is good. When asked which wolf will win, the old man simply replies: “The one you feed.”
Start each day with uplifting ideas to cleanse your soul and provide a hearty breakfast for the ‘good wolf’. Add a selection of inspiring music to your morning routine, and you’ll see it works like eye drops to cleanse your spirit.

Recognition of Beauty
I won't spend one more day in fear.
Today I will not be limited by
negative thoughts that gobble up the day
and don't allow me
to recognize the beauty around me.
Today I will be freed of unrealistic expectations
that lead to disappointment and self-pity.
I am committed to being in the moment
where I am safe, provided for and loved.
