morning joy. carry this with you all day long. Mercia Tapping

As you savor your morning coffee, take a couple of minutes to reflect on those things, however small, which bring you joy. Putting oneself into “a good frame of mind” at the beginning of the day, is a simple way to help frame the entire day in a positive light and survive the bumps with good humor.

Good Morning!

Filed in Inspirational, Joy, Life by on June 14, 2017

good morning!

I have had a painting of a Morning Glory by my bedside for 35 years. It is the first thing I see every day. I put it there to remind me to appreciate the natural beauty of life, and greet each day with a smile. It puts me in a good mood to start my morning. This also reminds me to pass on my positivity to others throughout the day. Share the joy!

When You Realize

when you realize that money does not buy happiness, you will be rich indeed. Mercia Tapping

We all have basic needs such as food, shelter and health care. Money helps us put those fundamental life requirements in place. But after a certain amount of money in your pocket, happiness does not come from the relentless and insatiable pursuit of more wealth.

I have a very diverse group of friends. Some are fortunate to be incredibly wealthy, others have to think about every penny that they spend. But many of my poorest friends are incredibly happy because they have freed themselves from the tyranny of materialism.

We hear the term “retail therapy” and if any of us have tried that (I have in the past), we know that the lift it gives is so fleeting. Real happiness and being at peace with life cannot be found in a new piece of clothing or any other piece of new “stuff”.

Do As You Would

do as you would be done by and your life will hold no results. Mercia Tapping

The golden rule has layers of ancient wisdom and meaning. When you fully grasp it, it will transform your life. What this saying means is to put yourself in someone less shoes; how would you yourself like to be spoken to, or have somebody else act towards you?

When you are thoughtful before you speak and act towards others, and grant space to someone else’s humanity, you will never need to apologize, if even just to yourself.

ask your angel in heaven to guide and comfort you. Mercia Tapping

There have been times when I have been truly bewildered and confused as to what are the next steps I should take in my life. That is when I have lifted my eyes to heaven and asked for guidance. Listen hard. The guidance will come.

Don’t Let Life

Filed in Courage, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on June 9, 2017

don't let life just happen to you. make it happen the way you want it. Mercia Tapping

Granted, some things happen to you in life over which you had no control, but for the most part, we have more control than we realize.

It starts in the morning with good hygiene when we decide to brush our teeth. Some of these behaviors become so inculcated into our daily lives, that they have become good habits.

But I am talking more about those times when maybe we feel that life is drifting or passing us by, or perhaps current life challenges have just overwhelmed us, and we feel utterly helpless. It is those times when we need to ratchet up our level of intention to make life happen the way we want it.

The level of effort required may seem hard or even unreasonable, but at least if you do it, you have a shot at life eventually turning out the way that you would like.

In Those Darkest Nights

in Those darkest nights of the soul, pray and you will see those glimmers of light. Mercia Tapping

Never forget the power of prayer. Your prayers will be heard and you will be sent what you need. At the time, it may be difficult to see that your prayers are in fact being answered, but in retrospect that is always the case, and the way your prayers were answered were far wiser than you.

Have A Purpose

Filed in God, Inspirational, Life by on June 6, 2017

have a purpose in life, and your life will have depth and meaning. Mercia Tapping

Having a purpose in life does not have to be anything on a grand scale. It may simply mean that you are a devoted wife and mother, and are clear that your family is the most important thing in your life.

Having a purpose is the context where the rest of life lives. My favorite example of context is vacuum cleaning, not one of my favorite chores. But vacuuming your home just before some beloved friends or family comes to visit, that you haven’t seen in a while, takes on a whole different meaning.

But simply drifting through life, being unclear of its underlying purpose, is very unsettling and unsatisfying. It is worth some contemplation to find the purpose and the meaning in your own life.

Life Is Not Perfect

Filed in Inspirational, Life by on June 5, 2017

life is not perfect. contentment is when we are at peace with its imperfections. Mercia Tapping

There was a time in my life when I truly got stressed out that it wasn’t turning out the way I had planned. I used to dwell on it far too long. Every day there are countless things that happen that could irritate you, such as it is pouring with rain and you were looking forward to being outdoors. Or you drop something by mistake. What is common to them all, is their unchangeable nature because they are now in your past.

I am all for changing things which are in your power, but when someone cuts you off on the highway and narrowly misses you, you can shrug it off or let it bother you.

Life is a lot more agreeable when you can go with the flow and just ignore the little every day irritants that life serves up in its imperfect but persistent way.
