Below is my daughter. She’s a cheerful girls almost the time, however there are some times when she’s very annoying. I LOVE her very much on both situation.

I give myself permission to rest and relax when I work too much, I feel stressed, I feel tired and drained most of the time, I feel helpless, trapped, and defeated, I loss of my motivation about everything, I feel alone in the world, I feel everyday is a bad day, I feel exhausted all the time, I feel overwhelmed, I feel I need to rest and relax.

When’s the last time you get rest and relax?

I wake up after about 4-5 hours of good sleep.

my eyes feels heavy, I have a slight headache and my whole body feels weak.

I don’t want to open my email and facebook.

I don’t want to read anything.

I don’t want to do anything.

I feel overwhelmed.

I feel lonely.

I can’t stop worrying about everything.

This morning…
I put my problems and worries in HIS hand. I believe HE will meet my needs and answers my prayers.

A question in my inbox:
Can I change the color of your wordarts from black to another color?
An answer from me:
Hi dear, off course you can change the color of my wordarts. Black is the default color that give you freedom to re-color it. Below are some of my favorite methods in Photoshop:

Recolor with Paint Bucket Tools
Open your image.
1. Choose a foreground color.
2. Select the Paint Bucket tools.
3. To fill only pixels contiguous to the one you click, select Contiguous. (leave Contiguous unselected to fill all similar pixels in the image)
4. Click the part of the image you want to fill.

You had better live your best and act your best and think your best today; for today is the sure preparation for tomorrow and all the other tomorrows that follow -Harriet Martineau-

What’s done is done. What’s been said is said. we can’t undo the mistakes of yesterday. And occasionally they create the barriers blocking us today. However, we can make sure that our behavior today doesn’t contribute to unnecessary problems for tomorrow.

A negative attitude toward other people and toward life’s circumstances becomes habitual. Fortunately, a positive attitude does as well. The choice rests with each of us to respond in ways fitting to the preferred attitude.

How much easier all situations are when we are respectful, hopeful, and interested. Like-wise, the trivial matter can become a major catastrophe when we struggle unnecessarily and with carping egos. We make the world we find, at home, at work, and at play.

Excerpt from The Promise of a New Day. A Book of Daily Meditations by Karen Casey and Martha Vanceburg
