Paying Attention............

When I pay attention, I hear what my body has to say.

When I pay attention, I see old things in new ways.

When I pay attention, I’m nicer to be around.

When I pay attention, ordinary situations become extraordinary opportunities.

When I pay attention, every person becomes a potential teacher.

When I pay attention, connection happens.

When I pay attention, people feel more valued.

When I pay attention, every day is a new lesson.

When I pay attention, I produce better results with less effort.

When I pay attention, relationships get healthier.

When I pay attention, the unseen becomes obvious.

When I pay attention, I get inspired.

When I pay attention, I am more creative.

When I pay attention, I am a better communicator.

When I pay attention, I waste less time.

When I pay attention, I become more grateful and less hateful.

Words from Marilyn......

“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's
a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up becuase if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”
