"...the world doesn't just belong to him...it belongs to me, too. And the only limits are the ones I choose to accept ...."- Christine from the Breakups Suck Board

July 26,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
Some of the hurts you have cured
And the sharpest you still have survived
But what torments of grief you endured
From evils which never arrived! ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today's Prayer or Thought:

When we desperately hold on to a lost love too long, we are usually thought of with disgust. Our exes disgust us for it, and we disgust ourselves for it. Today let us realize that what we gain when we don't let go of a lost love is loss of pride and dignity.

Today let me gain back my dignity, and realize that living is about me, not them! ~Tigress Luv

July 25,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
The reason Wakan Tanka does not make two birds...or two human beings exactly alike is because each is placed here...to be an independent individual to rely on himself. ~ Okute

Today's Prayer or Thought:
One fears attachment even more than one fears abandonment. But you have to face abandonment alone.

Today let me realize that only in a loving attachment to my self will I never be abandoned. ~Tigress Luv

July 24,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
"I am finally starting to allow myself to feel happiness, and I don't know how to handle it that well. So in some ways, since I have been unhappy for so long (so lonely for interaction and companionship) I have to learn how to deal with happiness all over.

Funny, that I have read so much and done so much to manage my sadness that I have overlooked the concept of managing happiness too. And all emotions have to be managed, or else they become obsessive.

So today, I am working on managing my happiness, which is a very different process than managing sadness. Does anybody have any suggestions for me on how to manage my new found happiness?"~N.R. Davis

Today's Prayer or Thought:
The haying season is in full swing and trucks loaded with bales of green-gold leave the meadows stirred into action. Killdeer circle overhead, and quail call for a covey scattered by the noise of machines. To all appearances, this is the quiet season - but appearances are deceiving. The end is never the end but another beginning. The grasses drying in the sun have dropped seeds that will sprout again. Tall graceful sunflowers shade the wild petunias that wait for another rain. We finish one thing and begin another - always with a fresh eye for how we can do better. It reminds us that what we want to reap, we must first plant and cultivate and water with love.

 The Great Spirit has smiled upon us and made us glad. ~KEOKUK 1848

July 23,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
For those of us who 'think', we just 'are' - and that's all we will ever be. For those of us who do, will live.~Tigress Luv

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Just for today I will stop my 'thinking' and put 'action' to my thoughts. Just for today I will create an outcome to just one of my dreams, by initiating and undertaking something I have wanted to do for a long time. I will come to realize that there is no time like the present to bring life to my dreams.

Just for today I will come down from my clouds and be a 'doer'. ~Tigress Luv

July 22,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
"Let me live my life as I want, for at its end it is I who is the one that must die."
~Tigress Luv

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Just for today I will stop and reflect upon my youth. I will recall how, as a child, my dreams were never too far from my thoughts. As I aged I somehow lost the ability to dream, and sadly replaced the hard facts of reality for my 'enchanted dreamland'. Today I will recall all my childhood dreams of awe and wonder, and see how my life still holds many beautiful dreams yet to come.

Just for today I will dream of lightness and gaiety, and embrace each dream with awe and wonder.~Tigress luv

July 21,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
"That's what learning is, after all; not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we've changed because of it and what we take away from it that we never had before, to apply to other games. Losing, in a curious way, is winning."~ Richard Bach, note written by Richard Bach, The Bridge Across Forever

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today I'll look at my health and see if maybe I have put my physical well-being in the background. Sometimes our emotional self is louder than our physical self and we tend to skip our physical wellness. Today I'll realize that if I wait to hear my physical self cry for attention, it may be too late.

Just for today I'll take the time to get healthier habits. I'll eat better foods, and make sure my body gets the rest it needs. Today I'll park just a few spaces  farther away, and forgo just one self-destructive habit. Before I know it, I might be surprised to see that all these small steps have taken me to a healthier, happier emotional me, too.~Tigress Luv

July 20,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
My special place. It's a place no amount of hurt and anger can deface. I put things back together there. It all falls right in place - In my special space. My special place. ~Joni Mitchell

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Just for today I will make my very own special place. Whether it be in my heart, in my mind, or in my home. A sanctuary where I can go and visit 'me', away from the world outside. A place that exists only to embrace me. A space set aside, from all that abides. My space can be chiseled out of a forest bed, carved out of a golden meadow, or gently echoed in my heart. See, that I have a space is not for you, but for me.

Just for today I will find my own sanctuary, and park my troubles outside its door to wait for me to retrieve them, when I return from. My place. ~Tigress Luv

July 19,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us. ~Helen Keller

Today's Prayer or Thought:
People are as happy as they chose to be. If I stop and think about it there are so many ways I can find happiness today, regardless of what may be happening in my life right now. My attitude toward my day determines how much happiness can be found from this day.

Today I'll stop blaming others for whether I'm happy or not, and see that I, and I alone, am responsible for my attitude and the decisions I make toward my own personal happiness. Today I'll stop being sad that roses have thorns and start rejoicing that thorns come with roses. ~Tigress Luv

July 18,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
Life is full of little mysteries and pleasant surprises, if we just allow them to happen. Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is to just lie back in the boat of life, and enjoy the serene, gentle rocking motion as the waves take us to where we are destined to land. ~Tigress Luv

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Just for Today I will let go and let life lead me where it may. I will stop trying to control my destiny and realize that only in letting go of my controlling ways can I be truly free to accept things that come my way, and find the peace and tranquility that comes with such acceptance.

Just for today I will let the day take me where it may. ~Tigress Luv

July 17,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything. ~George Lois

Today's Prayer or Thought:
My feelings are too important to have them damaged by other's imposed opinions.

Today if someone does something that triggers hurtful feelings in me, I'll try to understand their motives as best I can, by communicating with them. Today I'll tell myself that I'd rather have my feelings based on truth, and not on my ego's sensitive guesses.

The more I take the time to understand other's motives, the less likely I am to come to incorrect or bitter conclusions.~Tigress Luv

July 16,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
At the innermost core of all loneliness is a deep and powerful yearning for union with one's lost self. - Brendan Francis

Today's Prayer or Thought:
No matter what happens in my day, I'll try to remember that nothing last forever. If some good should come of my day I will embrace the joy close to my heart and feel its glory. If some bad should come of my day, I'll try to let it slide right by me and remember that, "this, too, shall pass".

Today, before acting on temptation I'll stop and think first, and avoid doing something I might later regret. I'll find healthy alternatives to bad emotions. I'll touch another life in a positive way.

Today I'll try to remember that this day is just for me, and I will never have the opportunity again to shape this day into one that will be forever a beautiful memory.~Tigress Luv

July 15,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full.- Marcel Prous

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today I'll try to find just one gift that has come out of my painful experience, and see if that gift can help me find new ways of loving myself, and new insights into future happiness. Sometimes, we thank God for unanswered prayers. Upon searching in my past, I find that many of my bad experiences have actually contained miracles in disguise.

Today I'll try to focus on the fact that the worst thing that ever happened to me, may be the best thing that ever happened to me.~~Tigress Luv

July 14,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
If you want to make God laugh, tell him you have plans. - Sister Emerita

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today I'll take a closer look at the qualities I admired about my ex. Today I'll try to develop those same qualities in myself.

Today I will see that, if I admire another person for who they are, that I, too, can become the same. I have the ability within me, right now, at this moment, to be and do anything I want. I can become my own dream.~~Tigress Luv

July 13,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
You've no idea of what a poor opinion I have of myself, and how little I deserve it. - William Schwenck Gilbert

Today's Prayer or Thought:
If I've been blaming poor choices of mates for my failed relationships, I'll ask myself whether these choices were mine, or choices thrust upon me?

Today I'll take the time to see how my poor choices may be a reflection of my own low self-esteem.

Today I will not judge myself harshly, nor condemn myself, for my past choices - but simply gain from this new insight that I am a good person, worthy of love and respect. Today I have will learn to be more selective in future mates.~~Tigress Luv

July 12,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. ~Mother Teresa

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today I'll start 'seeing' by inner reflection. Today I will fully see all my bad habits and negative attitudes, and search hard within myself for a way to understand and 'fix' what I don't like. I will acknowledge that my negativities are merely signs of unseen difficulties inside me. By changing myself, I change those around me.

Today I will see that the only true time I can change another is when I have created change within myself.~Tigress Luv

July 5,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
You shall have joy, or you shall have power, said God; you shall not have both. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today I will ask myself why I keep waiting for happiness to come my way, in the same way I might wait for me to get the winning lottery ticket?

When I find myself unhappy, it's time for me to define my unhappiness. Do I see having happiness as being in a relationship? Or having a beautiful home? Or an adoring partner and perfect children? Do I define my happiness only as a dream of some particular place or time in the future?

Today I will stop waiting for happiness to come to me. Today I will see that this day is my future and that I need to stop expecting my happiness to come in the form of a 'dream come true'. Dreams are just dreams, reality always shows me that the real world is far from my dreams. Today I will be happy for having today.~Tigress Luv

July 4,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
When women go wrong, men go right after them. ~ Mae West

You can't go back and erase the past, but you can choose to go forward and create a more meaningful future. You can't get that same love back, but you can shoot for a better love. ~Myluckystars (Infidelity Board)

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today I'll take special time to appreciate the precious moments that come my way during the next 24 hours. I'll try to let go of my problems and rediscover the things that bring me good feelings inside - embracing dear friends, watching the peaceful sunset, a serene nature-walk, offering some kind words of encouragement to another.

Maybe I don't need a certain thing, or person, in my life to feel happiness and contentment. Maybe all I need to do is to gain a new outlook that will help me unwrap the special gifts that come my way every day.~~Tigress

July 3,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
I have never in my life learned anything from any man who agreed with me.~-Dudley Field Malone

Today's Prayer or Thought:
If rejection has hurt me today, it is because I believe I am deserving of rejection. Today I will see how, in my past, rejection has taught me to inner-reflect and self-improve. I will value only the rejection that benefits me, and throw the rest out.

Today I will see that rejection only hurts if I put truth to the cause, or value the source of the rejection. Today I will opt to reject rejection. It is not a gift, I do not have to accept it.~Tigress

July 2,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
No man or woman is worth all of your tears..and the only one who is will not make you cry.~Mel (from the original Circle of Hope)

Today's Prayer or Thought:
When I feel overwhelmed by the grief of my heartache I will stop and look at all the beauty that surrounds me. I will look to this beauty and find some peace and quiet, cradled in the arms of God's splendor. I will see the beauty in my friends and family members, in the vast blue spans of the sea, and the majestic violets and plums of the mountains.

Just for today I will feel the soft breeze as it caresses my face, and I will remember to be thankful for all the gifts that I do have.~Tigress


July 1,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
Everything has a crack in it -- that's how the light gets in.~Leonard Cohen

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today I'll take more responsibility for my own happiness, and stop looking toward another to 'fix' me. I'll take the time to inner-reflect and acknowledge that only I can change my life, my outlook, my courses. Upon my inner-reflection, I'll pause just long enough to understand how my own 'attitude' toward the events in my life is what feeds them either sorrow, or joy. I make my own choices and decisions on how I choose to see things, and it is in these 'attitude-choices' that I am ultimately effected.~Tigress Luv

June 30,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
The bus bringeth and the bus taketh away. You know, that's a lot like life.~~Floyd Lawson, The Andy Griffith Show

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today, I'll look at the way I feel unloved or uncared for as a result of my breakup, and see if I've been rejecting myself even more than I think they did.

The more I believe that I am worthy of love and care, the less likely I will be to believe that my entire existence was based on the acceptance or rejection of one other person.~~Tigress Luv

June 29,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
Remember to dream ...
but not to hold that dream too close to you.
In order to be, your dream needs to be set free,
so let it go -- and make it come true!~~Tigress Luv

Today's Prayer or Thought:
If I've been stuck in my past -- afraid of moving on , or seeking 'change' in my life -- I'll ask myself, 'why am I scared?' 'what is it I'm so afraid of?' Is it because clinging on to what is 'known' to me represents security, and the 'unknown' represents risk? If I have fear of 'change' I have to remember to inner-reflect and see how in my past 'change' has always meant betterment and not losing.

Today I'll try to remember that often taking risks and venturing into the unknown is what brought me to many wonderful places in my past life. When I no longer fear risks, when I see change through eager anticipation, I give control back to me. I am no longer afraid but avidly looking forward to what new adventures my life may hold.~~Tigress Luv

June 28,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
The "what should be" never did exist, but people keep trying to live up to it. There is no "what should be," there is only what is.~~Lenny Bruce

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today I'll stop seeking my happiness as that of something that only another can give me. Today I'll start looking for happiness in another direction - and that is by loving and accepting myself more. Today I am perfectly happy in holding my own hand, as I am my new best friend. Today I learn that only I can bring the sun up in my morning.

Just for today I will embrace myself, with all the rapture of a maternal love.Today I will cradle my inner child, and rock its fears away.~~Tigress Luv

June 27,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
Romance and work are great diversions to keep you from dealing with yourself.~~Cher

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today I'll remind myself that I am only human. I have the right to make mistakes, as I am human and without perfection. The natural consequences of my errors are today's lessons to ensure my share of more harmonious tomorrows.

Today I will remind myself that no lesson is learned in hiding from the fact that I am imperfect, or denying the fact that so is everyone else.~~Tigress Luv

June 26,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
The present is burdened too much with the past. We have not time, in our earthly existence, to appreciate what is warm with life, and immediately around us.~~Nathaniel Hawthorne

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today I'll remind myself that other's advice can hold merit. Today I will take the time to listen and benefit from my friends', and family's, insight. Today I will admit that at times it's difficult to see things impartially when my emotions are clouding up my thinking. It isn't that my opinions do not matter; the truth is simply that I haven't the ability to see my grief any way but through my tears.

Today I will allow my loved ones to offer me advice, and today I will look at it -- not through my biased heart -- but through my open mind.

June 25,

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
Death is not the greatest loss of life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.~~Norman Palmerston

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Allowing myself to be continually hurt by someone's actions is not a healthy part of loving someone. There is a fine line between "healthy, loving commitment" and "toxic attachment". Only I have control over my choice to live my life in happiness, or in my own misery. No one can create my own Heaven and Hell. Only I have the option over denying or accepting it to be.

Today I'll stop denying the truth if abuse is happening in my life, and begin taking responsibility for the choices I make. ~~Tigress Luv

June 24, (Welcome to our first daily inspiration and prayer!)

Today's Inspiration or Quote:
Do not forsake your inner voice. Stop and listen to it, for it knows more about you than you, yourself, do. As a sage, it speaks with years of wisdom acquired from quiet observation and practical, hands-on experience. ~Tigress Luv~

Today's Prayer or Thought:
Today let us learn to embrace our inner beings with the tender love and acceptance that we yearn for. Today let us learn to love ourselves, the way we need and deserve to be loved... wholly, completely, and without limitations and boundaries. ~Tigress Luv~
