One Life

To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson


The beautiful weather in Texas makes me feel extremely grateful. I feel gratitude for Spring. The new season holds the promise of more warm sunny days to come. I notice the fresh green leaves on the trees and the bright kaleidoscope cf colors from the flowers. It brings my awareness to the surrounding beauty. For me, nature feels like a magical orchestra of everything playing it’s own tune in harmony with each other. This new perspective feels like viewing the world through a fresh set of eyes. I feel gratitude and joy.

Success is not measured in the car you drive, the job title you hold, or the clothes on your back. To succeed means the ability to shift your perspective. Success is measured by your ability to appreciate beauty, find the best in all things, and to share this outlook with those around you. 

AFFIRM: I shift my perspective and see a beautiful world.
