The prevailing philosophy, which works for many, is to sit down and meditate. As a self-classified Type A personality, calming my mind and focus has never come very easily, so adjusting to the silence and physical inactivity required for meditation proved ineffective.

Daily Thought: Getting caught in the mediocrity of life is easy. There is no effort or reward to just waking and living and allowing the day to drive your actions and reactions. Personal well-being occurs when you have set goals and become determined to achieve what you believe to be your right course. Maintain your actions by remembering that your goals are important to achieve. That by you getting better everyone and everything around you will grow too.
Daily Practice: Recommit to the goals you have set and begun to achieve. Do not allow a moment of pause or distraction from others to derail what it is you have thought about, planned for, and begun to act on. Stay focused. Re-evaluate, re-establish, and re-commit. What do you need to do next to maintain the forward momentum that you have already started?

Inner Journey: Questions That Aren’t Helpful
“We accept many notions because they seem to be the logical answers to our questions. But have we asked the right questions?”
— Harold L. Klawans
Sometimes we ask questions for which we really don’t want the answer! Nonetheless, when we ask a question, our subconscious minds will get to work to answer us.
Here are some examples of questions we want to avoid:
•What’s wrong with me?
•How long could this take?
•What could go wrong?
•How much trouble could it be?
•How hard could it be?
Asking questions can be empowering – as long as they’re smart questions!
“The uncreative mind can spot wrong answers, but it takes a very creative mind to spot wrong questions.”
— Anthony Jay
A Note from the Universe
What if you first got to decide how you’d like to feel – happy or sad, hurt or mad, approving or jealous – and then I had to go out and rearrange all the people and circumstances of your life to make it so?

MNN: ‘Sex, Lies and Butterflies’: Documentary takes a high-def look at these extraordinary insects
They’re beautiful, they’re delicate, they’re imperiled. But butterflies are also highly sophisticated, tough and not above using deception and warfare to get ahead in this world.
Nearly 20,000 species of butterflies exist around the Earth, and with 50 million years of evolution under their belts, the diversity is simply jaw-dropping. So, it’s no wonder that PBS Nature is taking a very close look at the lives of these extraordinary insects.
