Giving Thanks

thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks. Lot of people are complaining about a lot of things and I hope they can give it a rest on Thanksgiving. I have to consciously remind myself that today is a great day. It is the only today I will ever have because it will become yesterday when I reach tomorrow.

 I have concluded if I spend too much time thinking about yesterday, I will not enjoy today.

 On the other hand, if I spend all my time worrying about tomorrow, I will once again not enjoy today. 

So my intention is to simply enjoy today! So far – so good. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

I am also thankful for the privilege of being able to write books others can read. If you have spare time, check out my books and audiobooks (click here)

What is, is

Listened to some people the other day as they talked about their lives.

Seemed to me they were spending a lot of time worrying about what might happen in the future. When they stopped they filled the remaining spaces being depressed about what had happened in the past.

I decided two things;

 1. I didn’t want to listen to them anymore

 2. It is a lot better if we just live with three words;  What is, is.

Can’t change the past, and sure don’t know what the future holds, but I do know right now; what is, is. j-and-t

    And as far as I’m concerned; it is good!

I wrote a book called Forever Yours. It is about a couple who meet in the 60’s and spend their journey together finding out how to remain loving and content as they face the trials and uncertainties of the evolving American dream. Jeff finds his voice in a society undergoing a cultural and emotional revolution. Beth embraces the new independence of the modern woman. Their love grows until in the end, not even death can keep them apart. Click here to see more on Amazon.

Lessons from Nature

  This is wheat. Wheat produces seeds which when planted in the ground produce more wheat. If you plant wheat, you will not harvest corn, you will harvest wheat. It is a simple lesson in sowing and reaping.

   This is anger.

Anger produces seeds which when planted in the universe around you will produce more anger. If you plant anger, you will not harvest peace, you will harvest anger.


   This is a negative attitude. Negative attitudes produce seeds which when planted in the universe around you will produce more negativity. You can’t plant negativity and expect positive harvest.

Simple lessons in sowing and reaping during our Thanksgiving Holidays. Happy Thanksgiving. 

DON’T WORRY – BE HAPPY

I just finished reading through the news of the day, a rather non positive event to say the least.

Things in life can sometimes be difficult – but this song by Bob Marley says it all.
DON’T WORRY BE HAPPY – EVERY LITTLE THING GONNA BE ALRIGHT

Give a listen and be happy.
