Daily Inspiration: In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings. ~Ann Landers

Today’s Affirmation: My every act is a guide for happiness.

Today's Contemplation:  The only true lessons received by our children are the lessons born upon our actions.  We teach by example and we deepen that teaching through integrity.  When our words align with our actions and our thoughts we are an inspiration of our values; whether or not they are empowering or self-defeating.

Today’s Affirmation: I take the risk, I stretch, and everything works out for my joy today.

Today's Spiritual Contemplation: We must be alert to risks and opportunities in our lives otherwise they will pass us by for someone more willing more ready.  They come subtly as an uncomfortable yet enticing possibilities, it is easy to ignore the whisper, it is hard to embrace the challenge.  All we need to do is 'Just Say Yes'.

Today’s Affirmation: I affirm my gratitude with my whole being; thoughts, words and actions.

Today's Contemplation:  Sometimes we are feeling so much pain, anger and resentment it becomes difficult for us to express or even acknowledge to ourselves any feelings of gratitude.  This is when it is most important, for our own good, to find that thankfulness and express it.

Daily Inspiration: Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning. ~William Arthur Ward

Today’s Affirmation: I look at the world with the eyes of innocence.

Today's Contemplation:  Innocence is the perspective of a child, it is the natural desire of life to discover its depth, its breadth, its full potential.  Curiosity is a cornerstone of life, its lack is the forbearer of death.
