“Getting in balance is not so much about adopting new strategies to change your behaviors, as it is about realigning yourself in all of your thoughts so as to create a balance between what you desire and how you conduct your life on a daily basis.” Wayne Dyer
I greet the morning with joy and anticipation. The sun smiles back at me, and the morning mist nourishes my soul. Life is so precious and sweet, and yet so fragile.
I breathe in the essence of Divine Presence, which I know surrounds and supports me – always. Gratefully, I know and accept that this Life, this loving Presence, is both a gift and my birthright as a child of God.
My intention for this day is to remain quietly centered, to let nothing and no one disturb my inner peace. I stand strong and certain in my deeply felt values, and yet also ready to entertain all points of view from those whom I may encounter throughout the day. In this regard, I see myself as a Balanced Rock – strong and grounded; open and receptive.
I take it all in with both joy and a quiet certainty of my greater yet to be as I declare: Life is good and very good. With thanksgiving, I accept these blessings in my life, and the lives of all who hear or read these words. Life is so good; Life is so precious. And so it is.
