Beginning Your Day

Begin this day with thoughts and feelings of gratitude, respect, appreciation and humility. It is very important to start each day with these feelings. Sit quietly, close your eyes and feel the feelings of gratitude for your sight, your hearing, your heart, your lungs, waking with a sound mind, your mental and emotional health and for your life. Start your day with positive thoughts and with forgiveness. To create balance in your life, your must begin to leave yesterday fully in the past. Start this day with forgiving yourself for all hurtful thoughts, words, actions, activities and behaviors.

Empowerment begins with establishing a goal. To begin this process YOU will have to determine that there is something in your life that YOU know YOU really need to change or completely eliminate. This knowing will come directly from within YOU. Your change begins with the acknowledgement of your own personal needs and true knowledge of self. Simply stated, no one knows YOU better than YOU. This knowledge and acknowledgement comes from being completely honest with yourself. This acknowledgement is your initial effort to focus on the thing(s) that YOU know within your heart YOU need to work on. This can be done by sitting alone in a quiet space and examining your life, your thoughts, your actions and your activities. The process of change and self development begins with this single powerful life changing acknowledgement. This acknowledgement and knowledge concerning your true needs becomes your defining moment. This first and most important acknowledgement is to determine that there is something that YOU need to work on and change within YOU and within your life. The second and equally important acknowledgement is being completely sure that YOU really want to work on (put forth effort or to simply try) yourself and begin to make the necessary changes within your life. Empowerment begins and ends with these acknowledgements. The final acknowledgement is the acknowledgement of effort. This acknowledgement is simple, YOU will acknowledge or know when YOU put forth effort and YOU will acknowledge and know when YOU do not. Within the Empowerment concept, effort means to simply try today, each day, and everyday one day at a time.
