Fran's Quotes of the Day

Faith is the power of God in your life

" Faith is spiritualized imagination."~Henry Ward Beecher

"Faith is courage; it is creative while despair is always destructive. " ~David S. Muzzey

"Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it by the handle of anxiety, or by the handle of faith." ~Author Unknown

"Faith enables persons to be persons because it lets God be God. " ~Carter Lindberg

All these quotes are from Fran’s Quotes of the Day. Hard times require active FAITH. Acts of Faith if you will. You must have the belief, the core understanding that nothing that you can SEE actually matters. What does matter is how you treat each and every one you meet every day. What matters is the relationships you develop. Base your reality on what you know in your heart. If someone lies to you each time they open their mouth, they are a liar. This is not a judgment call – it is based on the facts at hand. Just like there are people who always have a word of support or kindness to share. These are the people you need in times like now. Look for the best in people – that is faith. But believe what they show you – that is fact. Trust yourself and be open to new and interesting possibilities in places you have never imagined. People are now being brought together – for the benefit of us all. Be open to receive these “new” relationships. Trust, Believe and have Faith. Thanks for reading. Michelle

A little Dr. Suess

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're onyour own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..." ~ Dr. Seuss

Dr. Suess said it and it is so true,

You and only YOU know exactly what to do!

Be blessed and continue to pass those blessings along.

Are you choosing to live or only exist?

"Each of us literally chooses, by his way of attending to things, what sort of universe he shall appear to himself to inhabit."~William James

Taking the time to CHOOSE the life you want to live is not something taught. Not in schools, church or by parents.  We are taught that we have to work for a living, we have to conform to what society dictates, that we can only do what others see for you in your life.

Stop drinking the kool aid. Take a real look at what is going on in your life and decide, right here and right now that you will no longer accept the limitations placed on you – not by yourself nor by another.

The time is now for you to step into your glory. To really be all that you can be – FOR REAL! You can do this, you are here to do this. YOU signed up to take part in this earth experience, by forgetting all that you know is true in your heart.

When something is true for you, it rings true throughout your body. Truth is felt in your spirit. There will be times that something you read a week ago, a month ago or even a year ago, will be true when you come across the same information yet again.

You determine when, how and IF you will take advantage of what is offered.

So, take the time and make your CHOICE!

March is Women's MONTH! Go Ladies!

This post is just for my ladies!

“There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.” ~Madeline Albright

“The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it. ” ~Rosanne Barr

Ladies, we have got to stick together, to support each other. It is hard enough to be a woman without having another woman stab you in the back, undercut you at work or t

Please stop-before you bad mouth someone, or trash someone's business, at least attempt to reach out to that person. If this is a business owner, be honest about WHAT it is you did not like or appreciate regarding your experience with their company.

If this is a friend (or frenemy), than you have to decide if this person is worth the drama in your life. You know your friends, their strengths and their weaknesses. It is your decision to maintain that friendship. If you feel the good outweigh the bad, then you cannot hold the bad against them.

It is all about choice. We choose all our relationships. Some are more challenging then others because they have the most to teach . Are you paying attention, and are you willing to learn?

Thanks for reading!

Have a blessed week.

Are You One Of The Crazy Ones?

Hello Crazy Ones! Just read Fran's quotes for the day and this one was quite appropriate. We are living in such insane times, it appears that we all must be crazy to have signed up for this bull$%%! I know I have been questioning my Angels and wanting more direction, wanting to know exactly what is going on. Half of the country wants us to REGress to the 1800's, the other half seems open to moving forward.

What is a girl to do????

I can continue to live by my own belief system and trust that no matter what, God really does have my back. Not the fake God of the lunatic right, but the real, loving and compassionate God. God is real. God exists.

Hold on to your hats! This year is already shaping up to be unlike any we have ever seen!

So, sharing this quote. Both Fran and I agree- WE are among the Crazy!

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do." ~ Apple Inc. (I count myself lucky to be one of those crazy ones!) That was Fran and I too stand up as one of the Crazy Ones!

Thanks for reading! Much love (and faith, patience and abundance)! Michelle

Do It Anyway!

Love this from Mother Theresa! “People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” ~Mother Theresa

How Do You Carry Your Load?

“It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.”~Lou Holtz

We all have burdens to bear, challenges that are tailor made just for us. Most of them we walk into with our eyes wide open, then act astonished when the inevitable occurs. The load is part and parcel to living life on this beautiful place called earth. The way we carry it is determined by who you feel is responsible for your lot in life. When you get to the point where there is NO blame assessed, the carrying becomes much lighter. It is the blame, the shame and the anger that makes the load much heavier to bear. Shed that weight and keep it moving.

Sink or Soar-Your Choice

“Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.”~Neil Gaiman

This is talking about options. Your options. As always, you get to decide exactly how you will act and react to all situations. Your actions decide if you will fall (and die metaphorically) or soar with the angels. What is it that YOU choose to do, to be or to have. Make the choice as an active participant, not just a bystander. This is your life and your responsibility. Ask for help. Talk to God! Talk to your Angels! God is only love and our Angels  are here to help.  They have signed up for that job. Put them to work help you get to where you want to be, knowing that you too, must be willing to work!

Thanks for reading.
