Seeing the Round Corners

HEADS UP, the new day for Seeing the Round Corners “GOING LIVE” is Tuesday each week.

Maybe it is a cliché –but it is so such a time. For all its problems, and there are many, America is still “America the Beautiful,” and its citizens are proud of their country.

On a little smaller scale, it is possible to be thankful and show gratitude to those in our little corner of the world. Giving a smile to someone who does not have one takes so little effort. Giving a smile is like saying “bless you without uttering a word.”

In one of his seminars, Deepak Chopra encouraged his listeners to keep a gratitude journal, which may sound corny, but do so on a daily basis. You will find it amazing at how soon your daily life becomes more positive. Even when there are no major things to write about, be grateful for small things – a beautiful sunny day, rain when there is a drought, snow when there is a snow drought.

Chopra spoke of how showing gratitude enables a person to think and act positively. To enjoy greater happiness and satisfaction in our lives. The benefits of gratitude affect more than just ideas of positivity, but also evoke better health behavior and habits such as eating properly and exercising more. Then the physical benefits result such as more energy, better mental focus, quality sleep, less tendency for illness, and those nagging headaches and fatigue.

Greater happiness lives forever within and without the grateful. And now some food for thought (the author is unknown). Read and savor.

State of Mind Poem.
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you won’t.
If you like to win, but don’t think you can, it’s almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
For out in the world you’ll find success begins with a fellow’s will .
It’s all in a state of mind.
For many a game is lost ere even a play is run.
And many a coward fails ere even his work is begun.
Think big and your deeds will grow.
Think small and you’ll fall behind.
Think that you can and you will.
It’s all in a state of mind.
If you think you are out classed, you are.
You've got to think high to rise.
You've got to be sure of your self before you can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man.
But sooner or later, the man who wins is the fellow who thinks he can.
