Shawn Achor- on Happiness
Today, I am standing under the spout from which all good and loving things pour. I feel vibrantly alive and connected to my source and everyday in every way, I get better and better. I am joy,
beauty, and love in its purest form and I allow my light to shine brightly out into the world.
I trust that there is a perfect plan for the attracting and embracing of my highest potential, and as I lean into my personal power and listen to my intuition, I am able to attract the right people and circumstances into my life.
All that I need is flowing to me and I am grateful to accept the blessings I am about to receive. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Manifesto For Everyday Compassion
Help us remember that the jerk who cut us off in traffic last night might be a single Mom who worked nine hours that day and was rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do laundry and spend a few precious minutes with her children before bed.
Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who can`t seem to make change correctly, might be a worried 19 year old college student balancing his apprehension over his final exams with a fear of not getting his student loan for the next semester.
Let us remember that the scary looking bum begging for money at the same spot everyday, who really ought to get a job, might just be a slave to addictions or tragedies that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.
Help us to remember that this old couple who are walking annoying slow through the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress, just might be savoring this moment...knowing that based on the biopsy report she got back last week, this may be their last shared shopping together.
Please God, remind us each day, that of all the gift you give us, the greatest is love. That it is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear, or open our hearts just to those who are close to us, but to all of humanity.
Let us be slow to judge and quick to forgive...let us show patience, empathy and love. When all is said and done, the sum total of our lives and the only thing that matters is how much we have loved and how much we are loved in return.
