Beautiful Illustrated Quotations: What Is Your Daily Meditation Focus, How Do You Know You Succeeded In The World?
Beautiful Illustrated Quotations: What Is Your Daily Meditation Focus, How Do You Know You Succeeded In The World?: From Denny: You awaken in the early morning. What is your first thought? Is it to get the coffee going so you can turn your brain on, chasing away the sleep cobwebs? Is your first thought to start that To Do List in your head even before the sun rises?

Have you ever considered changing what you think about when you first open your eyes in the morning? Know that you will get around to attending to your daily routine. Things have to get done and they will - but are you giving yourself the gift of cherishing that first thought in your day?
