"An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied."
Arnold Glasgow

 Life is always changing.

That is one thing we can be sure of.

Decisions about our lives, our family,our work, our spirituality,our relationships and our personal growth have to be made daily.

By procrastinating and putting off these decisions we put of short-term urgencies which ultimately become long term matters of concern and goals become very distant longings. It would serve our interest to take action before we get to that point.

Remember that to achieve goals, as already mentioned it is vital to determine ones values and desires first. If individuals do not align their goals with their values, the chances of them not achieving their goals are pretty high. Even if the goals are reached, it leaves a sense of emptiness and continued despair. So as it has already been mentioned it is important to determine values first before setting goals.

What's your first step?
What are 3 actions you could take that make sense this week?

"A basic, wonderful truth about all people is that through our choices and actions, we can and do make the world a better place. We don't have to do huge things to make a big difference. Even the smallest kindness has the power to resonate through this sometimes difficult and troubled world. The loving actions we share make miracles happen."

In the face of all the challenges we face today, is my optimism about the future of humanity idealistic? Perhaps it is. Is it unrealistic? Certainly not. To remain indifferent to the challenges we face is indefensible. If the goal is noble, whether or not it is realized within our lifetime is largely irrelevant. What we must do therefore is to strive and persevere and never give up.

“When we receive and make beauty in wounded places, we find compassion,
forgiveness, creativity, and community in profound and lasting ways.” -unknown

"Gratefulness for what is there is one of the most powerful tools for creating what is not yet there. What does gratefulness mean? It means you appreciate what is. You value, you give attention to, you honor whatever is here at this moment." -Eckhart Tolle

Take a moment to think back on your week. What are you Grateful for?

If you don't believe in miracles, perhaps you have forgotten you are one.
