THE MODERN DAY STORY OF ADAM AND EVE
In a city called Eden, Adam met a girl called Eve.
An apple seemed to be at the root of their problem, as they were told to make like a tree and leave.

The apple was not the issue, as they had never considered the Universal Laws.
The roots that were planted long ago were the very seeds of the cause.

Their apples did have worms in them however the problem was not what it appeared.
As the roots of the apple tree were tarnished with lives hard times, insecurities and fears.

Adam was perplexed as he told Eve his concerns.
They both pondered and focused on what they had learned.

An angel came to Adam during his sleep and told him to awaken.
To live life to it’s fullest as life is all that you make it.

Focus your thoughts on what you want your life with Eve to be.
Your thoughts will plant new seeds and a stronger foundation, the roots of a much stronger tree.

Without strong roots no tree can weather the storms that life can throw in your path.
Replanting the seeds focus on facing your fears, and leaving resentment in the past.

Eve had an angelic encounter in her dream of a very similar kind.
She was told to live fully and love freely, and that she could change her life just by changing her mind.

The next morning Adam and Eve joined each other at the breakfast table.
Shared with each other their revelations of the night before, and felt willing and able.

They both realized there is no sin, no right, no wrong, nothing to feel guilty about.
They felt things would change if they would leave behind fear, insecurity and doubt.

Adam and Eve set forth to go to the city of Eden to plant new trees.
As their decedents would inherit the earth; paradise as far as the eye can see.

Adam and Eve lived, loved and laughed their way to a very happy and fulfilling life.
As they paved the way for their many children to come, to focus on happiness instead of strife.

Adam and Eve lived to pass on their many happy new beginnings.
To all their loved ones, friends, grandchildren and siblings.

They learned to stand together and leave behind their sorrows.
To trust each other and live in abundance, to build better tomorrows.

Adam and Eve would see that life is full of joy, tears and rain.
They learned to face the world together, and to never live in vain.

Adam and his dear loving wife Eve lived long and prosper and would remain together.
Living fully and loving freely, their legends will live on forever.  J

IT'S MY DUCKS AND MY POND

There are many chapters in one's life, and all chapters are created by the one living the life; namely YOU.

Whether you are successful or you are suffering the consequences of a poor choice; God knows we all make them.  Your life and outcomes are all decided by you and the daily choices you make. Like my mother used to say if she thought I made a bad choice; "you have led your ducks to a poor pond, but its your ducks and your pond."  Oh how correct she was... most of the time LOL! My mother was great at giving advice, but she fell short of following her own advice; "PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH."

Funny now that she is gone, so many of the sayings she used to use always pop up in my thoughts and vocabulary. She may not have followed her own advice, but some of the things she always used to say has made a great impact on me.

When life throws you lemons, get out of that "poor-pitty-party" mood and make some margarita's baby, and be sure to use the good vodka!! We all have bad days, but it's up to you as to how you handle them. Don't give excuses to justify as to why you are in a bad mood, and by all means do not dwell on it. Being in a good mood is a CHOICE regardless of the circumstances.  Whether you choose to be a victim or you choose victory is soley up to you. Life is what you make it.  Live and love today; as you never know if you will have a tomorrow....
