CelebraZine 26Jan09

The more you praise and celebrate your life,

the more there is in life to celebrate. --Oprah Winfrey

Occupying the 2nd position on the Chinese Zodiac, Oxen possess such character traits as dependability, strength and determination. Oxen are tolerant individuals who believe that the road to success involves hard work and scrupulous behavior; they don’t believe in taking shortcuts. They characterize those who don’t work hard as lazy individuals not worthy of respect.

Oxen are capable of trusting others and will listen to their opinions with an open mind. However, Oxen prefer making decisions that are based on their own research. Oxen favor strong, life-long alliances to casual acquaintances.

Positivity of 'Yes Man' attracted me, says Jim Carrey presented at newKerala

"I feel like it's time for a shift in the paradigm out there, from cynicism to faith, and belief in a good future".

Listen to this essay

....mother stopped me and said something that has stuck with me from that day until now. She said, “You let that be the last time you ever walk by somebody and not open up your mouth to speak, because even a dog can wag its tail when it passes you on the street."

Many thanks to those featured today, for the work they do to better our world!!!

This concludes today's posting of CelebraZine (eZine to Celebrate What's Right in the World), a 'running blog carnival' (of posts both found and shared with me) that uplift and inspire.... an inspiration of sayings, video, audio (music and speech), images, poetry--anything and everything that feeds the positive in heart, spirit, and mind.

Our focus dictates what we see, which reinforces our focus, further confining the possibility of what we will see.

May you be blessed by these offerings reminding us of the beauty, wonder, and sacredness in the world around us and within us.

Celebrate yourself!

Be a part of the expression of celebration. Submit your submission (containing text, image, video, and audio, poetry, quotes, etc.)anytime for the daily installments of CelebraZine, a 'running blog carnival' of What's Right in the World.

Note: Even if you are not the blogger of the work you'd like to suggest, but have noticed someone's work that you think should be included in a Celebration of What's Right in the World, --empowering people and spirit--please point out the work to us.

Blessings, dear ones,

I’m not big in horoscopes.
This is the funny thing I believe in predictability of the future but I don’t believe in the predictability of the human behavior.
In other words I believe that ultimately I am in charge of my destiny.
Let me be the first one to wish you “Happy new Ox year!”

Just wanted to say hi. I tried to watch the video, but it wouldn't play all the way through. It's probably my internet connection acting up. I'll try again later. Have a great day!

Thank you, Buddha.
Yes, like all predictions/readings, they seem to be a case of "if you just let the boat go downstream without and action, this is what's likely to happen." Mostly it's just play.
Blessings to you and your dear ones,
