THANKS FOR ALL YOUR BIRTHDAY MESSAGES, I AM GRATEFUL TO BE ALIVE AT 51

A BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR BIRTHDAY MESSGES, I LOVE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU  – I FEEL BLESSED TO BE 51.

Each day in Life is a gift embraced with the stories of untold manifestations.

There is something beautiful about waking up each morning and breathing within the corners of Gods living space. There is something beautiful about absorbing the gift of each second and feeding from the silence of new energy

Today is another opportunity FOR YOU  to grow, to learn, to make mistakes, to confront your fears and to go the extra mile in embracing the PURPOSE IN YOUR CALLING.

Today is an opportunity for me to say a BIG THANK YOU FOR All YOUR BIRTHDAY MESSAGES , and to remind you all that I LOVE YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

I AM 51 TODAY, AND I am grateful.

Life has taught me that the spirit of gratitude creates room for more blessings and that the story of happiness starts from within.

I have to be grateful because each day gives me a new opportunity to reflect, grow, aspire, praise and take action.

I have to be grateful because there were times where I nearly lost my life and it took foresight, faith and wisdom to look beyond the raw storms –   THAT’S A STORY FOR ANOTHER DAY.

In recent years there are THREE SIMPLE LESSONS  that  I have learnt that have shaped the paths of my calling

1 .BE YOURSELF –  As simple as this  sounds, it something a lot of people still  struggle with. The truth is that there is nothing as profound as projecting the purpose of your inner voice and BEING comfortable in your own skin, So what are you waiting for? Show the world who you really are, for the world is waiting for you to share your story.  

2. FOLLOW YOUR HEART – If it feels right and your intuition speaks volumes repeatedly, it probably is right.  If you become deeply overwhelmed with with thoughts and a deep urge to action on something that your deeply passionate about or something you truly believe in – THEN FOLLOW YOUR HEART

3. ONE OF THE SIMPLE SECRETS TO SUCCESS STORIES IS THAT IT OFTEN TAKES LIMITED RESOURCES TO MAKE GREAT THINGS HAPPEN

I am still on a journey, (blessed in spirit but also filled with imperfections ) and God has given me another chance to grow. I pray that I will be hungry and humble enough to feed from the lessons that unfold each day –

I know that 2020 has not been a particularly great year so far, for most people ,   who would have thought that the dreadful corona would knock on our doors unexpectedly and haunt our minds with shades of uncertainty.

However, I would like to reassure you that even dark moments are disguised  with  a range of blessings and our attitude, our faith, our mindset and our outlook have the energy to feed the present moment with something overwhelming beyond any measure of distraction.

IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO- NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT.

DURING THE LOCKDOWN PERIOD

1 I have been able to Publish My third book (With limited resources)

2. I have been able to complete five courses that have enhanced my world with more shades of new knowledge (I am also currently studying at two colleges – The Shipley college in West Yorkshire and The North Warwickshire College in the Midlands )

3.  I have been able to create new networks in the city of CARLISLE and the city of LANCASTER. I have also been able to create new networks in THE LAKE DISTRICTS.

4.  BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, I have been able to appreciate the fact even in the darkest moments of CONVID , LIFE  is still filled with an abundance of blessings when we are able to REFLECT, APPRECIATE SIMPLE MOMENTS and REALISE OUR CALLING AND OUR PURPOSE  (AND THAT SOMETIMES, IT’S THE REALLY SIMPLE THINGS THAT REALLY MATTER)

ITS GREAT TO BE PART OF THE JOURNEY OF LIFE, THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ALL OYUR BIRTHDAY MESSAGES

LOTS OF LOVE

TONY
