I'm really trying to change myself, but sometimes I try to do too much at once. I end up feeling sorry for myself, and I don't think to many people admit to that. I have a hard time getting out of that mood. I know I need to take one day at a time and Remember that this day belongs to me. Nobody in the world has one just like it.

When I get to far ahead of myself, I feel frustrated and self pity takes over. My problems turn into mountains and I feel weighed down. How I handle them, make a big difference. When I try to live one day at a time, the load is a lot lighter, as I simply stop, breathe and pray.

Rays of the sun

The rays of the sun upon my skin
they warmth me,

sun directly on my face
it comforts me

sending signals of happiness
knowing that God created the earth,
moon, sun and the beautiful surrounding

the warm feeling it feels
makes my heart sing

surrounding joy, happiness
and love throughout my soul
and my being alive,

leaving God’s touch upon me

Create and achieve

It is your true nature to create and achieve. Today, allow
that true nature to be fully expressed.

If you think you must struggle to get things done, that is
precisely how it will be. If you see life's abundance as
being apart from you, that abundance will be out of your

Consider how completely right it feels when you are living
in harmony with your most authentic purpose. Think of how
effective you can be when doing something you love.

The objectives for which you strive and agonize will bring
no real fulfillment, even if you're able to reach them. When
you're moving toward a goal and the effort feels effortless,
that is a goal that will bring real lasting value.

Let go of the need to struggle for what you don't really
desire in the first place. Instead, allow your life to
unfold each moment in accordance with your true creative

Connect to the purpose that is sincerely you. Express that
purpose, and you'll fill your world with richness.

When My World Seems Frustrating

When my world seems frustrating, I keep in mind that the most
important part of my exists beyond those frustrations. When
life feels painful, never forget that the pain, however
difficult it may be, is confined to just a small portion of
who I truly am.

All around me are things I can see and touch and
physically manipulate. They are part of life, but they are
by no means all there is.

I cannot hold love in my hand, and yet I know for
certain that it exists. I cannot capture joy in a box or
an envelope and yet I have no doubt that it is real.

When the outward concerns of life seem to be overwhelming,
I remind myself, there's more. There is so very much more to
living and being than those things I can see and hear,
taste and smell, touch and possess.

Even those losses and disappointments that feel big and
burdensome, are small in comparison to all the beautiful,
positive possibilities living within me. I look beyond the
noisy, superficial distractions and remember the miracle of
my existence.

I live my life around the values in my heart. And those
everyday pains and nuisances will lose their power to bring
me down.

When guilt has as hold on me, I make big problems out of little ones and hurt people I care about. When I face them honestly and make amends, I'm free to start feeling good again.
