Friday Frills

Today, many will awaken with a fresh sense of inspiration. Why not you? 

Today, many will open their eyes to the beauty that surrounds them. Why not you? 

Today, many will choose to leave the ghost of yesterday behind and seize 
the immeasurable power of today. Why not you? 

Today, many will break through the barriers of the past by looking 
at the blessings of the present. Why not you? 

Today, for many the burden of self doubt and insecurity will be lifted by 
the security and confidence of empowerment. Why not you? 

Today, many will rise above their believed limitations and make contact 
with their powerful innate strength. Why not you? 

Today, many will choose to free themselves from the personal imprisonment 
of their bad habits. Why not you? 

Today, many will choose to live free of conditions and rules governing their own happiness. Why not you? 

Today, many will find abundance in simplicity. Why not you? 

Today, many will be confronted by difficult moral choices and they will choose 
to do what is right instead of what is beneficial. Why not you? 

Today, many will decide to no longer sit back with a victim mentality, but to take charge 
of their lives and make positive changes. Why not you? 

Today, many will take the action necessary to make a difference. Why not you? 

Today is a new day. 

Many will seize this day.

 Many will live it to the fullest.

 Why not you?

Morning Sam! I love to read this kind of words! Today is a pure blessing, so not waste it to regret the past or be anxious for the future, cause the first is useless while the second is made only with your actions and what you have the control to do!:) Today is always the perfect day to smile and just enjoy life, happiness comes itself and from ourselves!:) I echo what Rowena wrote: today is a gift that why is called present! I dont know the origin of this quote but it is my fav scene on "Kung Fu Panda":))) So carpe diem and build your life as you want:) Love this post dear, one of my fav "Friday Frills" topic so far! Have a happy Friday, big hugs!:*

You don;t know how much I look forward t your Friday Frills and YOU inspired me to start the week with the "wisdom" - you know what I mean! I am a person who needs encouragement, I mean, it's good and almost necessary to read words of encouragement on a daily basis... so I thought ending the week with Friday Frills is great for the weekend, and starting with the "wisdom" helps me while I write it and for around 2 days :) Next I need more words and then come Friday!
I loved these words, every sentence ending in Why Not You? Yes, why not? We need to stand up for our wishes and lives, but it's difficult... till the first step!
By the way, your comments are there, they just need approval, and I do - so they are all there now! Thank you sooo much and I wish you a great weekend!
