what is love
♥ What is love? ♥

I\'ve been looking for a long, long time,

for this thing called love,I’ve ridden comets across the sky,and I’ve looked below and above.Then one day I looked inside myself,and this is what I found,A golden sun residing there,beaming forth God’s light and sound.

attitude
Attitude

The longer I live,

the more I realize the impact

of attitude on my life.

slide12
Attitude, to me,

is more important than facts.

It is more important than the past,

than education, than money,

than circumstances,

than failures, than success,

than what other people think

or say or do. 

slide13
It is more important than appearance,

giftedness or skill.

It will make or break a company...

a church... a home.

The remarkable thing is

we have a choice every day

regarding the attitude

we will embrace for that day.

slide14
We cannot change our past...

We cannot change the fact that

people will act in a certain way.

We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on the

one string we have,

and that is our attitude.

slide15
I am convinced that life is

10% what happens to me,

and 90% how I react to it.

And so it is with you...

You are much more than a body, feelings, and thought. You are much more the sum of your experiences. When your heart is open to spirit, love flows through you, and as it does, it becomes infused with your myriad, unique colors, textures, flavors, and aromas.

You are soul. Shine on!
