Be Ready & Willing, what do I mean, that could be applied to so many things. For me right now it has a special meaning, but I am speaking of Being Ready and Willing to Have a Good Day. That is part of actively Making it a Good Day. Certain things may happen (or not happen) to you that you are not ready nor willing to let happen, both positive and negative and the outcome or lack there of one will be base solely on how willing and ready you are for them to happen. The negative is pretty self- explanatory, yet complex enough to be a blog in itself. Lets talk about the positive, something that may totally be a good thing, may bring great new opportunities or just may make you happy but if you are not open, not Ready and Willing then you may not even see it, let alone embrace it for all it can be. And what is sometimes even more unfortunate is you may see it and not take advantage or embrace it because you are not willing or ready or some combination of the two. I am speaking from experience. As I grow older and mature and become more willing and ready for the positive I also have to understand that even being willing and ready does not make certain situations any easier or less works JUST makes the outcome better and make me all the more appreciative.
I am sending warm holiday wishes and the most positive happy vibes your way today this Christmas Eve especially. Right now, just when I thought the year had brought all that is was going to bring and was just trying to gear up for a Good 2009, I got a phone call, and I am Ready and Willing this time and that IS gonna make all the difference. It does not really matter who the phone call was from for this post, just that it is not really the phone call that made the difference but me, my attitude. The same phone call could have come and if I was negative, close minded, hardheaded, unwilling and not ready it might have just as well been a telemarketer.
I myself, tonight while I wait for my kids to fall asleep, so I can do what needs to be done, wink wink, this Christmas Eve, as reminded that tomorrow is Jesus Birthday, and I am thankful for my family and to be a child of God. From my family to yours, may you be Willing and Ready for all that is possible. Family is what is important, my kids are my life and show me what is really important.
Merry Christmas! Happy Holiday!
Smile and Make it a Good Day!
