The Choice is Yours

"What if today was your day? The most amazing day of your life, so far? A day that would change everything for the better. Whats already good would become great. Whats already great would become amazing. And what's already amazing would become the stuff of legends.
And all you had to do to take advantage of the good and wonderful things about to happen to you, was treat folks with a true and eager kindness, think mostly of those things that please you, and go out  into the world, just a bit, where you could meet, mingle, and fall in love?

Today is your day, yet if by its end nothing seems to have happened, it may just mean that tomorrow, for sure, will be the most amazing day of your life."

It is Spring, folks. Time for regrowth, motivation, rays of sunshine and budding opportunities. With the return of the sun and a little bit of heat melting the soil of these Flat Lands, I think of how easy it is to get sucked into a rhythm of negativity. Sometimes a forceful push is helpful. "An object at rest tends to stay at rest, an object in motion tends to stay in motion."
I feel as if we just take advantage of the boosts that we need to push forwards in life, more opportunities will come to us! It can be challenging to learn from those dips in life rather than let them scar you and hold you down. It is something that takes a strong mind.

The quote at the top is from a website that sends an email every morning encouraging you to be persistant in persuing the goals in your life. I feel like taking time out of our mental habits to develop a clear image of what happiness is to us is something that not a lot of people do. It is a block in the day that is leaving a gaping hole in the lives of so many. All it takes is 5 min. to close your eyes, write things down, breathe deeply and use your imagination. We do it when we're kids. Everything has a glow of gold around it in our minds. Now what, we're going to let age and experience on this rock we call Earth take that brilliance of perception away from us?

Don't fall for the misconception that comfort in life is worth giving up that lovely slumberous thought of what your future could be. Live on the edge of life, no matter where you are or what you're doing.

The only one holding you back is you.

Picture This - My Visual Life Part 6

So things have been busy as usual. I'm teaching quite a bit and am doing my usual running around. These are the events that have been happening in my day to day. Mmmmmmenjoy.

Shad and Veelson can't seem to take their eyes off their HD tv. Kids these days..
Made some Lemon Meringue pie for The Bear on his birthay with Lady Love. I decided when I say my name is Meri, I'll say, "Meri, as in Meringue" Eh? Eh? Clever.

The view on the way home from driving The Bear to work at 6am-ish. The Flat Lands do provide nice sunrises.
Spring is here!!! .. In the flower shops only. *Le Sigh*
Was surprised with this when I got in the car after a class. The middle heart even has a little message on it! So thoughtful.
Hung out with my gangsta bitch. (Eldest Child) Twas a fun afternoon.
The reuniting of the children after about a year. It looks like Pup's snarling but I think she was just breathing out of the side of her mouth. This was the craziest it got, sadly enough. I was hoping for an uprising.
I do have a few things floating around in this head of mine but alas, time is not on my side. Not to mention I've been sleepier than usual lately. That never helps production.But I have been taking a lot of pictures with my Cannon Eos. Maybe I'll post some of those as well. Fun times ahead!
For now I shall carry on my merry way.

Diddly dee potatoes,
