Every day is a gift

book by Barry Gottlieb

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."
  • The Dalai Lama

What does "True Abundance" mean to you?
According to Wikipedia, the definition of abundance is "the opposite of scarcity." I believe true abundance is not measured by what you have; rather, it is measured by what you give.

In our culture, it seems that most people are caught up in their "need for greed." Perhaps this is why so many people struggle to find their happiness, and why over 25% of the people in our country suffer from anxiety. We live in a culture where we are taught to judge a person based on what they have, rather than on who they are and what they contribute to society.

I was very fortunate to have met a professor that changed my whole way of thinking. I was one of those people with a, "What's in it for me" attitude when I started his class. By the end of the semester though, my philosophy and my attitude had changed. Forever! This is what I learned:

"You can have anything you want in life, if you will just help enough other people get what they want."
  • Zig Ziglar

I challenge you to focus on this philosophy for an entire month! Here are some action steps that will help you stay focused on this incredible gift:

ACTION STEPS

Gratitude.

Every night before you go to sleep, recite aloud at least ten things for which you are grateful.

Forgive.

Let go of the past. Forgive those who have hurt or angered you. Stop carrying this poison around with you every day.

Love.

Be sure to tell those people in your life who mean so much to you that you love them and appreciate them.

Donate.

Go through your closets. Anything you haven't worn or used in the past year, box it or bag it and take it to a place where those who are less fortunate will benefit from your donation. Get your children involved!

Praise.

Make time to praise. Look for and recognize the good in others

Quote for Today

“You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.”
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson

Mother Basilea Schlink’s Attitude for Today

"Let no day go by without making the most of it by sowing love. Then you will reap the love of God both here and in eternity.
  • Mother Basilea Schlink

Proverb for Today

“A foolish son brings grief to his father and bitterness to the mother who bore him.”
  • Proverbs 17:25

Word from Scripture for Today

“Some, however, did receive him and believed in him; so he gave them the right to become God's children. They did not become God's children by natural means, that is, by being born as the children of a human father; God himself was their Father.”
  • John 1:12-13
