Today’s Thank You Game challenge is to thank someone who brings beauty into your life. (http://on.fb.me/ThankYouGame)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I responded by saying on facebook that

I thank my mother and father for giving me life.
My heart continues to beat because they gave birth to me
I still stand because they created and nurtured me to this very moment.
I am 27 years old because I was ONE day old.

I fully acknowledge that I didn’t put myself on this earth…..my parents, my grandparents, my ancestors and God brought me here. So I now do my best to act with gratitude even when days get rough between us…I do my best to respond with gratitude. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Day by day, I have come to realize that I didn’t put myself on this earth…I didn’t give birth to myself and so I have been blessed with life, I was given the gift of life and that is a priceless gift. A gift that I must say thank to my parents every day that I live. Wow…I vow to say thank you to my parents everyday I see them and say “Thank you Daddy, Thank you Mommy, for giving me life. I lived today because of you”

I vow to do this everyday.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I realized that I was so quick to say Thank you that I did not clearly comprehend that today’s game is to  “Thank someone who brings beauty into your life.” Which makes me think “Who brings beauty into my life?”

Who I truly want to thank for the beauty in my life is God.

I thank God for the yellow rays of light that brightens our warm days.

I thank God for the white clouds and blue skies that lift our head up and lifts our spirits.

I thank God for the green grass and sweet scents of colorful flowers that can make us smile.

These are the true beauties in my life that I am grateful for.

“Decide to be Happy Today” – unknown
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Wow,

I won’t be able to sleep tonight without writing these words and setting it on stone here on wordpress.

Last night I slept with such mental distress. So much so that it took me 2-3 hrs for the music I was listening too, to kick in and help me doze off.

Today – Was a total 360!

Today was unlike any other day. It was truly unique of its own. And it was all thanks to the quote

“Decide to be Happy Today”

How can one maintain such an intention when another wants to turn on the tv when you want a space of silence?

How can one maintain such an intention when another comes home from work ready to complain?

How can one maintain such an intention when another comes home from work and a reminder of a past conflict wants to budge in and steal your happiness away?

How?

Indeed a handful of opportunities have occurred ready to deter me from such an empowering positive decision.

And with such deep intention, came deep focus and in turn happiness came to me where ever I put my mind to.

The exercise I did this morning.
The food I prepared and enjoyed.
The small tasks I completed.
The self development lessons I’ve learned.

Whatever that was left unchecked on my checklist is but a stone left unturned for another day.
And I am ok with that.

Because I decided to be happy today.

No panic was allowed, no stress was allowed, and to the best of my ability no hard words were allowed to exit my lips or enter my heart; and the heightened sensation from practicing such an attitude has me wanting more days like this; that was unlike any other day.

I want how I felt today to be felt everyday because I’ve discovered music that lightened my spirit and perspectives, life lessons, I could of only have heard with my mind and eyes so wide open to receive them. Such humbling wisdom that will lead me to even more happiness once I improve my ways.

I am so #grateful for the words

“Decide to be Happy Today”

~Today was a Good Day and so I will rest Happy~
