Thought for Today: “That is how authentic power is created — intention by intention, and choice by choice. You cannot wish it, pray it or meditate it into being.” Gary Zukav Thought For Today via Oprah.com Newsletter
“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” Steve Jobs via Thoughtful Mind
We read inspirational messages for a reason, they uplift our spirit and help us start our day in a positive way. Some of us write our own, and the rest of us read the beautiful messages that find their way to us from a variety of sources. Today, I looked through my email folder and decided to share some of the messages I receive on a daily basis. These beautiful messages usually arrive after midnight and set the tone for the day. I have identified the source of each one in the block quotes. For instance, above, I’ve shared two quotes/messages that I received today from Oprah.com Newsletter and Thoughtful Mind
“Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than material force, that thoughts rule the world.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!” (Habakkuk 2:3 LB) When God Says Wait by Rick Warren via Purpose Driven.com
