To Live with Grace means to accept the love within the present moment. There is a woman I work with at the local seafood restaurant who is a true inspiration. It is likely no coincidence that her name is Grace. Even though our jobs may be meager (server and bus), her energy & outlook on life is anything but that. She embodies truly what it means to live from an enlightened perspective. While she may not be very tall, her personality and energy is the biggest thing in the room by far. She has a light that shines so bright that it cannot help but to uplift everyone around her. I am truly grateful and honored to work beside her. Tonight she was nice enough to have passed out some copies of affirmations she shared with us earlier in the season. An affiration is a statement or prayer that when read helps to balance and center your consciousness into a state of peace. I would like to share them with you here and hope you come back to read them often:
Promise yourself to be strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something special in them. To look at the sunny side of things and make your dreams come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best and expect only the best. To be just as happy about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press onto the greater things of the future. To wear a cheerful smile at all times. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Love the ones who don’t just because you can.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
God never said life would be easy.
He just promised it would be worth it.
Our next post coming soon titled “Purpose in the Present” will talk about how living the meaningful life can be as simple as looking upon your current situation with a new set of eyes. We will discuss the methods and benefits of cultivating positive thoughts and purpose within the eternal present moment. Until then, namaste and peace be with you.
