      Hello everyone:
      I know it is a bit late to say 'Rise and Shine' today, but I did just open this message I received a day or so ago from a friend named Nanci who operates her own website and I just could not resist sharing it with all of you because of the words here and also because of this song which, BTW, was embedded by Nanci.
      So I do hope you enjoy the words as well as the music.  But, if you do not, and this is not your 'cup of tea,' please do go ahead right not and delete this message, with my blessings.  However, I do thank Nanci Baren of rubyrogers for sharing this.  She does have a special and wonderful website, and like Lisa of Spiritually_Speaking, she also shares great information daily, including great music links as well as great computer programs to make our lives easier, just to name a few of the things she shares.  Like Lisa, I believe that she spends a lot of her time searching the web because of all the great stuff she shares, so if you take the time to read this message, I do hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
      Peace, love, light, joy and angel hugs,

      rise & shine!
      Psychologists say 68% of people miss out on opportunity simply because they are not awake to it. Did you read that clearly?
      They are not awake. Most people are in a coma of routine, habit, and schedule. They almost have to be. We over stimulate
      our calendar with so many tasks and errands that it becomes necessary to be in a robotic state of "doing" to ensure everything
      on the to-do list will get accomplished.
      And now, the harassed style of thinking and living has become a habit – a way of life. You can break through this negative
      behavior of living by making a conscious effort to become more childlike – not childish – but, childlike.
      Find amazement with things again!
      Did you know that NASA cannot duplicate the flight pattern of a dragon fly? Did you know that a butterfly's life span is two days –
      and that they are never babies? They go right from the cocoon to an adult butterfly? Did you know the more pollution in the
      air the more brilliant and bold the sunsets? Did you know that baby zebras recognize their mommies by the positioning of their
      stripes – and the stripe patterns are never duplicated! Isn't it amazing that alligators lay their eggs at different levels in the ground.
      And this action determines the gender of the newborn alligator? Isn't it amazing that it is impossible to be mad and laugh at the
      same time? Isn't it amazing that you can cause a grown man or woman with a tough exterior to melt like butter when you say,
      "I love you." Isn't it amazing that young children who just meet each other can play like they are lifelong friends within a few
      These facts may seem insignificant. However, the habit of thinking on such things can do amazing things for you. It can cause
      you to wake up and notice the abundance of wisdom, love, and miracles that are found in every day life!
      Just imagine what your life would look like if you called on your natural risk-taking ability. Imagine what your business would
      look like if you cultivated your childlike thinking. Imagine what your relationships would look like if you were willing to really love!
      Let this be your wake up call to the amazement of life. It just might cause you to be aware of the abundant opportunity
      waiting for you in your business and in life!
      Cultivate Your Child-like Thinking
      Although life is far from perfect, it is completely abundant and very much worth every moment of living. Yes, there are always things that could be improved, and that is a blessing in itself. For it means that you are alive and able to make things happen. It means that there is always the option of reaching ever higher.
      There is always room for improvement, and that means there is always room to grow. Weaknesses can be transformed into strengths, and liabilities can be changed into assets.
      Where there is room for improvement, there are also the seeds of opportunity and accomplishment. Businesses, careers and entire industries are built on the need and desire for continuing, expanding improvement.
      When there is something that needs to be improved, learn to see it not as a deficiency. See it for what it is, which is a magnificent opportunity. If there is room for improvement, there is the real possibility of greatness
      There is no substitute for happiness, nor does there need to be. Because happiness, peace, contentment and fulfillment are there for the living of them. You can fill your life with excitement and thrills, but those things on their own will not make you happy. You can load yourself up with material possessions, yet they are no substitute for being genuinely happy.
      Happiness is not something for which you must wait until the conditions are right. And happiness is not something that the right conditions, on their own, can ever bring you.
      Happiness is not just for a lucky few. It is for anyone who chooses to live and to express it. Happiness is not a selfish pursuit. Indeed, your genuine happiness brings value not only to you, but to those around you as well.
      You need no reason to be happy, and there is no reason that happiness can be withheld from you. Choose happiness, and choose to live each moment with the joy that is surely here.
