Ever thought what if or if only I would have done this or that? We all have had those moments when we wished we can turn back the hands of time and have a do-over, a Mulligan. The thing with do-overs are that it doesn’t guarantee we’ll get the desired outcome. Instead of dwelling on the past, wishing to do something over, be THANKFUL for today and all it offers. Today gives us the opportunity to make all our wishes come true, because truth be told, all we have control over is the here and now. Wouldn’t it be great to make today the best day it possibly can be? Take advantage of all that today brings to the table and watch how prosperous today will become. Be THANKFUL for the big and the small and everything in between. When we appreciate the present (today), we see the value in yesterday (history), and are not only prepared, but have a joyful expectation for what tomorrow (mystery) will offer. Practice being THANKFUL for where you are, what you have, and what you’ve gone through. These are the building blocks for the mind and soul that gives peace and purpose. It soothes, teaches, and prepares us for the next phase. THANKFUL on purpose and with a purpose, today and everyday!

As creatures of habit and self-preservation, our first instinct is to gravitate to what is comfortable and protect ourselves at all costs, and in doing so, we may miss out on the most important and beautiful things in life.
So often we rely on what we have experienced and although it is wise to learn from our past, we forget to enjoy the “present” when we allow those lessons to stifle our future. Pain is a great equalizer and reminder of what to do and not to do, but it can also be a paralyses. It can leave you stuck in a rut and life passing you by, especially when it comes to relationships and love.
