Just as appetite comes by eating, so work brings inspiration, if inspiration is not discernible at the beginning.

This is one of my favorite positive affirmations statements:

Criticism can be very subtle in the way it creeps into our thoughts. Here are some examples of criticism to help you become aware of its subtlety, so you can eliminate it from your thoughts:
The weather is awful today.
The traffic is terrible.
The service is really bad.
Oh no, look at the line.
He/she is always late.
How long do we have to wait for our order?
That motorist is a lunatic.
It’s so hot in here.
I’ve been on hold for so long!

These are subtle things, but the law of attraction is listening to them all.  You have the ability to appreciate something in every single circumstance. There is always something to be grateful for.

Here is an excerpt from the book, How to Be Rich ~ Compact Wisdom from the World’s Greatest Wealth-Builders.

There’s Divinity behind our Visions.

Of, course, I do not mean by dreams and visions the mere fantasies, the vague, undefined thoughts that flit through the mind, but our real heart longings, our soul yearnings, the mental pictures of a future that haunts our dreams, and the insistent urge which prods us until we try to match them with their reality, to bring them out into the actual. There is a divinity behind these visions. They are prophecies of our possible future, and nature is throwing up these pictures on our mental screen to give us a glimpse of the possibilities that are awaiting us.
One reason why most of us do such little, unoriginal things is because we do not sufficiently nurse our visions and longings. The plan of the building must come before the building. We climb by the ladder of our visions, our dreams. The sculptor’s model must live in the sculptor’s mind before it can be called out of the marble. We do not fully realize the mental force we generate by persistently visualizing our ideal, by the perpetual clinging to our dreams, the vision of the thing we long to do or to be. We do not know that nursing our desires makes the mental pictures sharper, more clean-cut, and that these mental processes are completing the plans of our future life building, filling in the outlines and details, and drawing to us out of the invisible energy of the universe the materials for our actual building.

(From The Key to Prosperity: Conquering Poverty Thinking, by Orison S. Marden, 1922.)

A lovely quote by author Louise L. Hay from her book ~ Heart Thoughts.

It is safe

to look within.

Each time you look

deeper into yourself,

you are going to find

incredibly beautiful 

treasures within you.

Have a beautiful day,

Remember to breathe.
