Thoughts For The Day

Thoughts 1

“The cyclone drives its power from a calm center. So does a person.”  ~ Norman Vincent Peale

from The Desk of MarDrag:

You have heard the phrase “calm in the eye of the storm.” Similar to the quote above. And if we think about it, and look at the picture, we see it to be true. While a storm whirls and twirls, at the very center is the calm power that drives it. If we can adopt that concept to our lives, we can weather anything. So, rather than get caught up in the fury of the storm around us, we seek to be the calm power at the center of it so that we can determine the destination, or at the very least, stay balanced and centered as it rages around us and we wait it out. Some storms cannot be avoided. Stay calm.

Thoughts 2“Don’t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams!  ~ Angel Whispers

from The Desk of MarDrag:

It is a part of life to be driven by our problems. They take our energy, we worry about them, and often they are the things that we focus on through out the day. And like the quote says, our problems push us along in life. But consider that, we will always have some kind of problem at hand to solve, that is part of life, but would we make it the focus of our lives. What if, instead of allowing our problems to push us around like bullies, we put them into perspective…and allowed our passions and dreams to lead us to the life we want to live. Problems get solved…they always do. Live your dreams!

Thoughts 3“Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.”  ~ Author Unknown

from The Desk of MarDrag:

And so, like the other quote above, we see that WE have the choice whether to allow something to take over our lives…or whether we take our power back from the problem or person and place it where it will do the most good for us…which is working toward peace and calm within. Because from that Inner Peace comes all that we are looking for to manage our lives. Inner Peace is the key that unlocks the ideas, solutions, and love held within us…which leads us to a better life. Let us make Peace the focus.


Thoughts For The Day

Thoughts Weather 1

“If you want to see the sunshine, you have to weather the storm.”  ~ Frank Lane

MarDrags’ Thoughts: Our lives are so like the weather…there are days of bright sunshine, high winds can blow at times, clouds can gather and hang…and then unleash a fury of rain to soak us and slow us down, and there can be dastardly, debilitating, and dark storms. We can no more change this pattern than we can change the patterns Mother Nature has set down. BUT…we can know that…as furious as a storm can be…the sun and light will always follow…and it will be equally as great as the storm was. So too, we will always pass through life’s storms, stepping into the light again…and we will be stronger and we will know more because of it. Great and beautiful flowers (decisions) are born of great rains (difficulties).

Thoughts Obstacles 2

“Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven’t half the strength you think they have.”  ~ Norman Vincent Peale

MarDrags’ Thoughts: Obstacles, I believe, only have as much Power as we give them. If we think an obstacle has more Power than we do…then it will. If we see it for the temporary barrier or hurdle we must pass to get to our goal, its Power shrinks and goes back to where it belongs…within Us. Take your Power back from your obstacles and overcome them.


“It is impossible for you to be angry and laugh at the same time. Anger and laughter are mutually exclusive and you have the power to choose either.”  ~ Wayne Dyer

MarDrags’ Thoughts: Anger does have its place, and it is important to allow ourselves to feel it, not deny it and process it. Anger can be a great motivator…as long as we do not allow it to take over and lead us into difficulties. But…many times we can choose to let go of Anger when its purpose has been fulfilled…or when it is not necessary at all and will only make us unhappy…and we can choose Laughter. Laugh…in the face of Anger…and choose to feel good.

Thoughts Intuition 4

“Intuition is seeing with the soul.”  ~ Dean Koontz

MarDrags’ Thoughts: This really does not need many more words from me does it? It speaks for itself. If we can remember to listen to and follow our Intuitions, we will always be seeing life from a deeper place…from the Soul…and the Soul will always guide us in the right direction. Trust your Intuition!
