CelebraZine 28Jan09

The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself.

It is not in your environment, it is not in luck or chance,

or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.--OrisonSwett Marden

Seth Pickens presents Cheerfulness As A Life Power (1) at How I Got Over

“Cheerfulness as a Life Power” by Orison Swett Marden, written in 1899, is downloadable for free from, and is all about the importance of cheer, optimism, a glad heart, smiling, laughter, singing, and the positive effect all forms of mirth and merriment have on human health.

We can learn to balance our spiritual practices with our worldly responsibilities, enjoying the fruits within ourselves and sharing our gifts with others.

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 love that quote. I just wrote some on my last post, and I said something like "everything you need is in you or it is coming to you..." That is so cool :-)
