Weekend Inspiration ~ Gratitude


Happy Weekend! This weekend’s inspiration is brought to you by Gratitude. I firmly believe that Gratitude is important to remember and cultivate into our every day lives. It is often hard to be Grateful when we are going through difficulties or we have not achieved or received what we want out of life. Or if the road to that achievement is strewn with rocks and potholes. BUT…Gratitude softens those blows, it softens the heart, and it reminds us that…even though our lives may not be perfect, if we look closely, there are many small things to be Grateful for that, strung together, make up a fine tapestry of joy and peace.

Go into your weekend looking at all those things you can be Grateful for…and to help get you started, here are some lovely and profound quotes:

I am so Grateful for the people, every day joys and lessons, and dreams if have…and most assuredly, I am Grateful for all of you who come to read my blog and find something worthwhile here. 

Blessings to All of You!

Tuesday Affirmations ~ Remember


It is Tuesday Affirmation day and, to keep our week moving with positive energy and messages to ourselves to remember who we are and that we have so much Power within ourselves to draw on throughout the day…I give you three affirmations to say today.

Thoughts For The Day

Thoughts 1

“The bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you refuse to take the turn.” ~ Author Unknown

MarDrags’ Thoughts:

The path…or road…of life is not a straight and narrow line. It is a series of curves, hills and valleys. Sometimes, just when we think we have it figured out, or we have a stretch of smooth pavement, a bend in the road appears and we are loathe to take it. We stop in our tracks, wonder why the bend has come when things have been good, and we resist following the turn. Don’t let that bend be the end of your road. Take the turn…and have faith that you will maneuver it well and that something even better is around the corner…if not right away, then eventually.

Thoughts 3

“Realize that if a door closed, it’s because what was behind it wasn’t meant for you.” ~ Mandy Hale

MarDrags’ Thoughts:

So, I have heard about many closed doors this week. But, this quote is so true. Sometimes, we think we know what is best, or we want something no matter what the consequences, or we struggle to open a door we thought we were meant to or should…but…if the door closes and does not admit us…then it was not meant to be and we should let go the door knob. Because, as you can see in the picture…if the door before us is closed…it is because there is another open to us, it is just in a different direction. Turn around and look.

Thoughts 2

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”~ Eckhart Tolle

MarDrags’ Thoughts:

I know you have all likely heard some form of the quote above at least once. I added it here today just in case…we can all use a reminder now and then.

Know that you are all part of the good in my life, and I acknowledge you! I send you Many Blessings!

Affirmation Tuesday ~ Prosperity


Good Morning! It is “Affirmation Tuesday” again…and I have my deck of affirmation cards (by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber) in front of me. I take them in hand, and feel their stiff weight as I shuffle them. I close my eyes and sense the energy they hold…from so many uses…and I send my own energy to them in the expected question…”What is our message today”? I feel the pulse and spark as they move through my hands and as I lay them out…a string of connected thoughts…on the hard cherry wood of my desk. As my hand lingers in the air, just above the line of cards, I move it…back and forth, to and fro…and then it happens…the heat from one message jumps into my palm and my hand descends to pick up that one card that means to be heard today. And that card is:

The Affirmation of Prosperity: “I Have All That I Need To Get What I Want”

Message: “Use this gift when you believe you lack the time, money, intelligence, education, connections, looks, love, strength, prestige, power, luck, support, courage, patience, or any other resources you need to accomplish your goal. Believe, instead, that the power of affirmations and positive thinking can help you as much as all these things combined.”

from the Desk of MarDrag:

We all have goals for our lives…and wants, needs, desires…intentions for where we would like to see our lives move. We also have our true Life’s Purpose, whether we are yet aware of it or not…it is there. We have things we want to do, to accomplish…and things we want to be. And many times, we get discouraged because we believe we lack the tools or skills, drive or energy, support or help we need to reach them. It is often easy to get caught up in those disheartening thoughts and put off those things we would most like to pursue. We put our focus on looking at the things we think we “do not” have and forget to look at the things we “do” have that will help us achieve what we desire.

The thing is…the affirmation above is so correct in telling us that Positive Thinking and the Power of Affirmations are the primary tools…and what we really need…to move us forward toward accomplishment. If we believe in our dreams and ourselves, then we can call to our lives all those things in the list above that we need to get to our goal.

What we really need to do is…make the goal and the belief in ourselves BIGGER than what we think we do not possess. For all those things in the list of resources are attainable, if you believe they are. They are just “things” that are floating around out there in the world around you…waiting to be plucked and used. Anyone can attain them. They are not bigger than you are, or bigger than your goal. And they are abundant. There IS enough for everyone.

Prosperity is not just about money or things or riches. Prosperity is also about the wealth of our mind and soul, the opulence of our confidence and self-esteem, the assets of our character, and the treasure of our belief in ourselves and our abilities take command of our lives and our goals.

With Positive Thinking, there is nothing we cannot have or do. So, choose an affirmation today that tells yourself that you can do anything you put your mind and inner resources to. Write it down, post it somewhere you will see it every day. Make that affirmation bigger than your doubts about yourself. Retrain your mind to think better of yourself than you have given yourself credit for to date. You will be amazed at how effective it will be to “change your mind”…and when you believe you have it…you do!

Honor the Prosperity of your own inner resources, believe in the riches you already have, and use Positive Thinking and Affirmations…and there is nothing you can’t achieve!
