Phenomenal Friday-I Wish You Enough!


This one is from the files of Etta D. 
I found this Gem in my mailbox, sent to me back in 2006 and thought I’d share.

Recently I overheard a Father and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.

Standing  near the security gate, they hugged and the  Father said, ‘I love you, and I wish you  enough.’

The daughter replied,  ‘Dad, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Dad.’

Create A Constant Demand For Happiness


To gain real happiness, the first essential is to train yourself to think constantly of the great value of such happiness, and especially with regard to its health producing power. Such thinking will tend to produce a subconscious desire for happiness, and what the subconscious begins to desire it also begins to create. Train yourself to think of happiness as a mental necessity, just as food is a physical necessity, and you will gradually train every element and force in your system to work for the creation of happiness. By creating within yourself a constant demand for happiness, you will inspire the elements of your own nature to produce the desired supply, and ere long the happiness you desire will become a permanent part of your life.    ~Christian D. Larson

Meaningful Monday-“Adulting” Is Hard Work

The idea of NO school, NO curfew, NO seeking permission to stay or up late and being able to eat as much ice cream I want when I wanted was a fantastic dream that made my heart sing. Yes, being an adult was the highlight of my 12-year-old life. Then reality hit, I woke up one day and BAM! Guess what? I was adulting and let me tell you, adulthood is overrated! But wait a minute? What constitutes being an adult? Is it age? Maturity or emotional growth and stability? My childhood perception of being an adult was  totally misguided and filled with unrealistic notions.
