Poor robin redbreast,
Look where he comes;
Let him in to feel your fire,
And toss him of your crumbs.

A Bountiful Moment:
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
Do you live your life to the fullest or just get by following where ever the day takes you. Your life in under your control. You get to decide what you want to do and what you need to change. Making goal directed decisions is what keeps your life your life. Make sure to live your life daily donï¿½t allow other things, or people to decide how you are going to exist.
If you have not already made goals for what you want to accomplish this year today is the day to do that. Take charge of where you will be at the end of this year. What are some of the things you want to accomplish? Set at least three goals under the categories of physical, mental and spiritual. Or you choose what it is you want to accomplish. What are the next steps you are going to make to assure you are living your life to the fullest?
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

How To Use Intention Setting & Community To Manifest Your Dreams
It’s a new year, and we know what that means. It’s time to crush our goals and intentions and get to work on everything we say we are going to do all year long. The New Year gives us a burst of inspiration to get clear on what we really want and a clean slate to go for it.
“I’d gone through life believing in the strength and competence of others; never in my own. Now, dazzled, I discovered that my capacities were real. It was like finding a fortune in the lining of an old coat.”
— Joan Mills
Take a moment to stop and think about what you give to the people and life around you. Don’t think about what you’re not doing right. Look instead at all you do that is a blessing. Many of us continually beat ourselves up for not doing or being enough. But imagine for a moment that you are great just as you are. Feel the relief this brings! Now open to the possibility that this is not a daydream. Itï¿½s true! Believe it!
“People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.”
— Norman Vincent Peale
“We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves.”

A Note from the Universe
Living the life of your dreams is a lot like sailing.
You pick your destination, hoist up your sail, make minor adjustments while the journey is underway, and let the wind do all the hard work.
In other words, imagine the end result, do what little you can, make minor adjustments while the journey is underway, and let me blow your mind.
Today’s Recipe: Dandelion Greens and Pomegranate Vinaigrette
One way to get rid of those pesky dandelions in your lawn is to eat them. The greens are chock full of vitamins and minerals.
Dandelion greens can be pretty bitter, so you will want to mix them with other greens such as baby arugula or spinach to tone them down a bit. I made this vinaigrette to go over the salad and was very pleased with it’s tangy, sweet, and refreshing flavor. Go ahead, pick those dandelion leaves, it’s fun

Progress: Are You Putting In The Effort?
“I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it – but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.”
-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809-1894)
To progress we must make the effort. We must forge ahead. We must put ourselves out there and be open to experiences that challenge us. We can start right where we are, by knowing where we want to go.
