Wake up & think positive
First thing in the morning or anytime that you wake up is not the best time for remembering things,unless of course you have a big note pad next to you or sticky notes all over the wall next to you. It is not the best time to remember what you told yourself that you would do today, except maybe that you have got to get to work on time and pay your phone bill before you lose your link to the rest of the world. You might even forget about the phone bill and only remember when you cannot get a connection.
We all forget things, but once we are wide awake the opportunity also arises for us to remind ourselves about some things that comforts the mind and soul and have nothing to do with getting to work on time or paying your cell phone bill before your services get interrupted.
You have to remind yourself that you are worth something to someone somewhere, to a place, to God and or to yourself. The thought spurs you on through the day, promotes self esteem and instills a self confidence in you, that acts as a shield to any negativity that you might encounter along the way.
What you are worth is not so much how much is in your wallet or your bank account but how you feel about yourself, everything that you do and about the lives that you touch. The lives that you touch whether it be in a personal or service capacity can then translate into monetary value. Even if the lives that you touch does not translate into dollars, it transforms itself into gratification, if you allow it to.
Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg , to mention but a few, touched lives with their services and products and that touching translated itself into monetary worth. They gave away billions, which must have translated itself into gratification but also makes them more wealthy and worthy than the money that they still have or are still making. Not every one has exactly the same story line, but every story needs some worthiness.
We take so much for granted as we journey through life but even the smallest act of kindness to someone you know or a stranger, makes you worthy. You may not place too much value on the things
that you do for friends, for family or while at work , but what you do and especially how you do it, makes you worthy. You may not think yourself worthy, but there are probably a lot of people out there and around you, who look up to you and consider you worthy.
It does not really matter whether or not the corporation that you work for considers you worthy, but that the people you serve in each and every capacity consider you worthy. It does not matter which form of performance appraisal a corporation may choose to assess your worthiness. You have to sometimes assess yourself and it is your own assessment that is always more important. You always have to know who you are, that you are worthy of something or to someone and that is what matters.
Wake up and feel worthy of the day and make the day make you feel worthy. Do not let anyone or anywhere steal your self esteem, confidence or peace of mind. Feel worthy and stay worthy.
When you think of the word deviant, your mind might automatically link it to something bad or to someone who has done something bad but it can also work the other way around. Deviant could apply to something or someone doing something different or good for a change instead of something bad. Deviant in its pure form simply means to deviate from the norm.
There are some things to life which from which we cannot deviate. We have to breathe, we have to eat to nourish ourselves and we have to sleep to replenish ourselves. There is no deviation from the breathing or you are dead but there can be some deviation to the eating and sleeping pattern.
We all have our worries and we all have our struggles to life. Struggles or challenges are a common trend to the human story. They are different kinds of worries and different kind of struggles for everyone but each life story has them. They are what make us who we are and they can ultimately decide our fate. In order to have some control over your own story and the outcome of the struggle,
you have to sometimes deviate yourself from these worries and struggles or at the very least deviate in your approach towards them.
There are some thoughts and some acts that make life more of a struggle for some people than for others. These thoughts lead to certain actions and the actions lead down a particular path in life. It is how we act and react towards our circumstances and struggles, that ultimately decide the outcome of the struggles and challenges that we face.
There is the saying that if it is not broken, then there is no need to fix it. If it is broken, then you either need to fix what is broken or replace it. If what you are doing at this point in your life does not make you happy, then your happiness is broken and you need to fix it. You need to deviate from what makes you unhappy. If what you are doing is not giving you fulfillment, you need to deviate from it to find your fulfillment. If you have been following a particular game plan and it has not been working for you, then it is time to deviate to plan b, c or even d, before it is too late.
Life is a cycle. It is a cycle that you create for yourself or allow others to create for you. Once a cycle has been created and repeated itself for a certain period of time, it can be extremely difficult to break the cycle. The greatest trick to life has always been to create a wonderful and positive cycle from the beginning. The next greatest trick is to break a cycle of circumstances or deviate from it to create yourself a more wonderful cycle. Maybe that is also the test for all of us.
It takes time to create any particular cycle and it can take time to break them too. They can be like
bad habits that are difficult to break but can be broken, if you really want to deviate from those bad habits. You just have to take the right steps in that directions, one certain step at a time and with great will power.
Wake up and deviate from the thought ` I cannot do it' to ` I can do it and I will do it.' Wake up and deviate from the thought ` it is not going to be a good day' to ` it is going to be a wonderful day.'
Wake up and deviate from your doubts to your certainties.
Wake up and deviate from the habits that make you feel bad to alternative habits that make you feel great about yourself. Wake up and deviate from the things that make you feel bad and deviate towards the things, the places and the people that make you feel great .
Very often when we wake up in the morning, we wake up to the day and follow a prticular routine. These routines may appear mundane to us but is a necessary part of our daily lives.Maybe the rotines appear mundane because they are not exciting or we simply think of them as mundane or a burden, but they are not irrelevant.
When the routines are on vacation or we escape them for a moment in time, then we might wake up and wonder what to do with the time that we do have on our hands. One great thing about these routines, is that they do keep us busy, so boredom should not be an issue. You might still get visits from frustration for not being able to do some things you want to do or get done. & The irony is that when you do have free time on your hands to do all the things on your to do list, you don't.
Each and every day is important, for each day is a part of your life and becomes a part of your history.
Most things that you do each day will have some purose. They will serve a purpose for you and or for others
but everything or most things will matter more, if you are aware of their true purpose and make them matter to you.
There are some things that will matter to you more than anything else, but for one reason or another,
you will find yourself paying less attention to them, compliments of your daily routines or automated self
and a lifetime of distractions. It requires some juggling, some organization and some priortization to find the right balance to find or to get to what matters the most each day but if you can find it and get it done, you will find satisfaction to the day also. Find out what matters to you & make it matter today for a better tomorrow.
Whatever your routine might be, whether you have too much or too little to do, there are a few honest to self genuine questions that you really have to ask yourself in one form or another.
' what will make today matter the most? " What can I do today that will make me feel great?"
"what can I do today with those routines, that will make a better me or tomorrow?" What can I do today, that my tomorrow self will thank me for?"
They are all good questions towards finding your answer and hopefully you will find your good answer. I peronally like the thought of waking up to the day and finding something to do, that my future self will thank me for.
Wake up and make today matter, for this day has been given to you as a gift. Do whatever you can to make it matter and when it is done, simply say thank you and dwell with the satisfaction of getting it done. God bless your day.
Without a purpose to life, there can be very little meaning to life. Without meaning to life, there is not much to believe in or look forward to.
That is why you are blessed. You are blessed because each day does have some purpose to it or provides you with some purpose. Each day provides you with some oppottunity to create your very own purpose and give each day its own meaning.
There is great power to belief, so wake up and begin the day that you have some purpose. Wake up and believe that you have some purpose to serve today and feel invigorated about it. Some times you might think of some things that that you do as mundane but that is because you think of them that way or you believe them to be so.Others might see you as serving a great purpose and see what you do, as wonderful and majestic.
Wake up and believe in the day ahead. Wake up and believe in the plans that you have for the day ahead.
Wake up and believe in the good plans that you have for others today and the service that you will provide to others today, whether they be family or strangers. Wake up and believe the best of others and that they have good plans for you today. Believe in a greater power and know in your heart and mind, that if there are those planning bad things for you, that such plans will not go according to plan.
Wake up and believe in yourself and reflect that to the world in how you carry yourself today and in your actions. Wake up and have some belief in the unseen. Align your heart and mind and let them work together to guide you.
If you find yourself in the company of doubt about yourself, about anything that you plan to do today, just look for someone who believes in you more than yourself. There are more people who believe in you than you might realise and they are usually close by or just a phone call away.
If you find yourself doubting your beliefs or yourself,just look up and say ` oh Lord, I need you.' Remember Jeremiah 29:11 ` For I know the plans I have for you' declares the Lord " Plans to prosper you & not to harm you. Plans to give you hope & a future"
I believe today is a gift and I am thankful for the gift. I believe that one of my purposes today is to use today wisely and not squander time. I believe that it will be a good day today and so it shall be.
Wake up and believe in yourself, in the unseen plans that have been assigned to you, the beauty of
what you have and the gift of now.
Have a wonderful day.

Life is many things and accordingly life can be defined in a variety of ways. Life is so diverse and there is such great diversity to us as a people, that how we each define life, provides different meanings to life.
Ultimately our perspective of life gives us our own meaning to life. That same meaning to life can vary from day to day, depending on the perspective that you wake up with or adopt each and every day.
Your perspective can be very clear or it can be blurry. It depends on your state of mind and it can depend on your circumstances, if you allow it to. There are moments of vunerability when the mind can be clouded and not see things as clearly as it should or can and there are moments when the mind is as sharp as an arrow and pierces through all viles, however thick they may be.
The mind is a beautiful instrument, if you allow it to be so.Even in the most vunerable of moments
it can guide you well and provide you with the proper perspective to life or the perspective that you need
to journey well.
Sometimes negativity can disguise itself as positivity, enemies disguise themselves as friends and what is bad for you appear to you as if it is good. A good day could look like a bad day or you can somehow transform a bad day into a good day with a few potent thoughts and deeds.
The key to providing yourself with the right perspective is awareness. It may also be known by its other name and called instincts but its more popular name is awareness. It is something that you grow up with or can adopt at any given time in life. You just have to sharpen your awareness along the way to give you a clearer and better perspective of life.
You have to be able to wake up and be aware of who you are and where you are. You should always be aware of who you are and that awreness will allow you to know what is right or wrong for you. It allows you to know what is good and what is bad for you. Being aware of where you are and where you want to be, allows you to create the bridge to getting there and allows you to take the necessary steps to get there.
Wake up and be aware of where you are in life and make yourself aware of what needs to be done.
Wake up and be aware of what is real and what is unreal. Wake up and be aware of the difference between
fantasy and reality. Wake up and be aware of the people around you that are true to you and those that are false. Wake up and be aware of those that you can be of service to.
Not everybody is who they appear to be or how they appear to be. We all have our veils to distort perception, but if you allow yourself to be aware, your awareness will pierce through most viels and guide you well. Change what you can and do not stress about what or who you cannot change.
Wake up and be aware. Wake up and see the beauty to life. Wake up and see your own potential. Wake up and be aware of your direction.
