The "knowing" is the small voice you hear deep
within that gives direction. It sparks the dreams and softens the
indignant blows that life throws at us. It is the spirit of our
being connected to the Great Power. It never goes away although
many spend a lifetime trying to block it out. "Believing" comes once we have accepted that self esteem
is not an ego trip but a verification that you are a living

In this day
I will celebrate as if it was my birthday and 24 hours was my
gift. I will treasure the sunrise and save the light in my hand
for darkened days. I will fill my lungs to capacity with the sweet
smell of life and consume the colors that surround me like a meal
fit for a king. I will taste the reds and yellows of the flowers
and bathe in the blues and greens of the sky and grass. At the end
of the day in the darkest hours my soul will light the way to rest
in the satisfaction of knowing I did not waste a morsel.
Then in my last day on this
earth I will leave filled with joy to a better place knowing that
I have served my purpose and completed my mission. I will leave
behind my energy that will disperse into every rock and tree and
molecule. I will not wither to the ground as failure and serve as
a pathway. I will rise with the sun to bring joy forever to those
who will dream after me. I am important. I am successful.
God's creation. I am alive!
