2015/02/img_0526.jpg“Life is not discovery of fate; it is continuous creation of future, through choices of thoughts, feelings and actions in the present.” —Sanjay Sahay

This quote… It makes me think and look at myself… HARD! About my life, my choices, and especially my thoughts!

I see how past choices have influenced my present now, in many aspects of my life, so I can truly feel the magnitude of this saying. It is so true!

Life is truly what we make of it, and our perceptions create our reality. This is how powerful each of us are. We are co-creators of our fate and destiny!

20141010-122918.jpgI just attended an Aunt’s funeral. My cousins are now orphans. I can’t even imagine what they are going through. My heart goes out to them. I am grateful to have been there for them.

It is yet another reminder of how short life is, and another reminder to live it joyously and without regrets.

May you all live your life as happily as you can. My blessings to each of you and your loved ones.

“When you arise in the morning think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love…” –Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

“Love is the essential existential fact. It is our ultimate reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life.” –Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

20140522-103445.jpgEach sick person I have visited. Each funeral I have attended so far. Each death I have heard about… Life is so short. Live well. Forgive now. Love completely. Cherish each other and each moment you spend with your loved ones. Tell your loved ones you love and care for them before it’s too late. Be brave! (Something I am working on myself…)

20140506-130931.jpgThank you for the wonderful day you have given to me, God! Thank you for each gift, blessing, and miracle today.

Thank you for the steamed pork in egg custard I had for breakfast. Thank you for leading me to the recipe.

Thank you for helping me find that marinated flank steak at the supermarket the other day. I cooked it last night so I could take some to work today. It was very delicious, and oh so tender! A great match to the steamed broccoli and the brown rice mixed with wild rice.

Thank you for flaming hot Cheetos! They take the itchy, scratchy throat away from allergies. I’m glad they come in little bags, or I’d be in trouble! 😉

Thank you for a chance to sit outside and be warmed by the sun.

I saw some of your beautiful creatures, while I was sitting in front of the fountain, during lunch. A dragonfly, with shimmering, luminous blue wings, circled twice. I managed to take a picture each of your squirrel and your crow drinking from the fountain. I wish I was able to take a picture of your tiny hummingbird, in front of the water of the fountain, as it took a drink. What a brave, tiny bird! Thank you for reminding me that if we have courage, we can do many things, even face a raging waterfall!

Thank you for the beautiful, yellow butterfly with black dots and tips! It allowed me to slow down and appreciate your beautiful creation in action.

Thank you for a flash of wings of a bird in the garage to remind me to slow down as I made my way out of the parking garage.

Thank you for another wonderful session with my Acupuncturist today. I know you brought us together so that I can fully heal.

Thank you for a chance for me to meet up with one of my closest friends for dinner. It was at a Japanese restaurant. You know how I love sushi!

Thank you for all the love and kindness I received this day, and I hope I was able to also give in kind.

I love you, God! Thank you for loving me back!

Thank you in advance for an even amazing day tomorrow!
