Reflections: Today I Choose…

30/09/2012

“There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself.” Henry David Thoreau

Reflections: Today I Choose… To be happy; so should you!

Complete the following sentence five times
“Today I choose …” Robert Holden

Today I choose to declare that I have the grace I need…
Today I choose to believe I am full of power, strength, and determination…
Today I choose to affirm that nothing I face will be too much for me…
Today I choose to accept that I will overcome every obstacle and outlast every challenge…
Today I choose to come through every difficulty better off than I was before…

When I saw the quote from Robert Holden (see above), I thought it would be perfect for a short post with accompanying photos. For this portion, I chose and slightly modified the lines from the message for Day Three in Joel Osteen‘s new book – I Declare. It is an uplifting, positive book with daily messages to help us grow in faith and happiness. More below!

“Instead of hiding your loneliness, bring it into the light. Honor it. Treat it. Heal it. You’ll find that it returns the favor.” Martha Beck

Reflections: Today I Choose… To be calm and focused.

Today I choose to embrace life
Today I choose to celebrate love…
Today I choose to share gratitude for family and friends…
Today I choose to invoke good health…
Today I choose to welcome abundance and blessings in all things…

Sometimes we experience challenges in our lives and think we are alone in our struggles. However, we are never alone; when we step into the light and declare good for ourselves and others, the blessings are palpable. For this part, I am invoking other positive gifts to choose. The more we invoke and affirm good in our lives the more we are reminded of our blessings. Grace is a state of mind and we can choose to rise above the negative. What are your thoughts? What do you choose today? How have your choices impacted your life? Do share? Thank you! 🙂

Positive Motivation Tip: Choose your thoughts and actions wisely for they become your reality. Choose!

    In order to stay uplifted, I think about happy things. Even the simplist thing – like an orchid that has just bloomed for me – can bring a smile to my face. Great post … uplifting.

    This is such great information. I really enjoy watching Joel Olsteen because he is so uplifting. I am fortunate to be saved and I know that God is with me always. I have to remind myself each day that “I can do all things thru Christ Jesus who strengthens me” Thank you for sharing this inspiring article
