Psalms 16:11 "You will show me the path of life; In Your   

presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures



Everything seems to change so quickly. Life seems to go by in a blink of an eye. Where did all the time go?  Look for all the good and the joy in your life and in others. Life is way too short to live it by being angry, resentful, and, most of all, ungrateful for all that you come in contact with. That does not serve you and certainly is not the best way to live a full and positive life. Decide each morning that this is going to be "the best day of your life". Look for the good and try to make each moment count. Do not let the negative aspects of life take over. I know this is easy to say and sometimes very hard to do. Try to surround yourself with positive people and appreciate the smallest things in life. These may be the most important things.


Hold on to the good energy that surrounds you and look to the future with high hopes. If you make a mistake, it is a lesson learned and that is how a person should look at it. It may be a building block to a future that is full of gratitude, hope, love, and joy. Of course, there will be things that bring disappointment and leave a temporary feeling of negativity, but it is the way that you handle these feelings that counts. Take time to feel and process this energy but do not allow it to influence how you might feel about the future. Take care of your own well-being and make joy and love your top priorities in your life. Pass this positive energy on to others. Here is praying that every day is the "best day of your life".
