Happy Thursday Everyone :o)

Today, I wanted to share 2, yes two Insights. This week they've been especially good and I've saved my two favorites to post here for everyone. Aaaaaaand, here we go:

The First:

"Throughout all history, the great wise men and teachers, philosophers, and prophets have disagreed with one another on many different things. It is only on this one point that they are in complete and unanimous agreement. - We become what we think about."

Earl Nightingale
1921-1989, Author of "The Strangest Secret"

The Second:

"We lift ourselves by our thought. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself. Hold the ideal of yourself as you long to be, always everywhere."

Orison Swett Marden
1850-1924, Author and Founder of Success Magazine

To me, both of these seem to go hand in hand. And I fully believe "we become what we think about". One of my favorite quotes from "The Secret" is "Your life is a physical manifestation of the thoughts that go on in your head", so these two insights really hit home for me.

As I've mentioned before, the hardest thing about these Insights are remembering them. Especially during these trying times in which we live. So come on peeps - lets practice remembering that our thoughts impact our lives more than we usually realize. Live in the NOW. Try not to worry about things you have no control over.

Easier said than done, I know. :o) But to make the effort, is a step in the right direction.
{Note to self: Think yourself to a size 6! You can do it!} LOL

Enjoy your day!
Love & Peace,

Wow!! First off I LOVE your picture for today. I know you gave me the website where you find them but the ones you choose are SO beautiful and so appropriate for your postings. In the picture I see the sayings you've quoted, that our lives are the mirrors of our thoughts so as the water is the reflection of nature's beauty so are our lives reflected by our own beauty. Thank you so much for this!

On a side note, I hope your migraine is gone today and that you have a headache free day!
