Carpe Diem!

I just got back from my honeymoon and I am back to city life. Our week long getaway was certainly a honeymoon to remember. The resort was a perfect paradise in every way and a perfect place for us to get connected to the commitment we have made to create and live a life we love together.

While away I read two books and one which inspired the new series of the month, Carpe Diem! I read the book "Stop worrying and start living" by Dale Carnegie. It was the perfect read for me while away. I didn't even realize how much I had been worrying. I had the chance to put things in perspective. I highly recommend you read it or listen to it too.

The "take away" for me was summed up in two quotes from the book.
"My life has been full of terrible misfortunes most of which have never happened" Montaigne. The other quote is from Winston Churchill, "We can only deal with one link in the chain of destiny at a time".

I suggest you do your best to set your intentions that your life is improving everyday and keep your attention on what you can do today to enjoy and love your only real possession, today.

Current affirmation
Yes! I will seize this day!
I will act now!
Every day is a new day
My life is passing and it will not wait
I am ready to stop (worrying)
I am willing to stop
I am determined to stop
I will stop right now!
I challenge myself
to reach for something better
no worries no regrets!
Ah I feel much better
I am free now. Carpe diem!

Inspired by Mother Teresa who says: I don't not pray for success I pray for faithfulness.

Today I pray
to be an instrument of peace.
I ask for faith
and the power to believe
it is in giving
that I receive.
All the I need
is within me now.

It is with great love and respect that I welcome this day with all my heart! I pray you do too.
