A few END-OF-THE-DAY questions for you by Veronica Hay

Did I make someone giggle, smile or laugh today?

Did I take the time to really listen to someone today, with rapt attention,
as if nothing else mattered in that precious moment but the words they spoke and the look in their eyes?

Did I allow myself to focus on all the blessings in my life today instead of contemplating the things I don’t have?

Did I take a moment to imagine what I would like to experience in my life,
if for no other reason than in the imagining, is the living, and in the living, comes the joy and delight?

Did I let go today, let go of resentments and unforgivingness that I have been holding onto, all the while realizing that another person may be wounded too and struggling with their own pain?

Did I keep my word today, no matter how simple a promise I may have made, knowing it meant a whole lot to someone else?

Did I make a conscious choice just to be happy today, no matter what is happening in my own life, just for the next moment, and the next moment and the next?

Did I stop caring about what other people think of me, and give myself permission to be who I am regardless of their good opinion of me or not?
Did I set myself free today just by doing that?

Was I successful in noticing and appreciating the bounty before me
wherever I went or was I just too busy or lost in my own thoughts
to notice?

Did I contribute something beautiful to the world today?
A new creation of some kind, a poem, a dinner, a dance?

Was I kind today to anyone or anything that crossed my path,
no matter how trivial or how monumental? Did I give away my heart?

Is one person richer because of me today, because of my presence on the planet, my essence, my decision to keep on going no matter what?

Did I learn something new today, something about life, something about myself, something about another that I didn’t know before?

Did I let go of my attachment to being right today, and open my mind to the possibility of another way, without judgement?

Will someone sleep better tonight because of me?
Will they awaken in the morning believing in themselves again,
and walk with their head held high?

Was I the answer to someone’s prayers today?

If today was to be my last day on the planet,
would I feel happy about how I lived it?

    Thank You Veronica. It’s easy to stay in the moment when things are going well. Right now things are becoming tense (daughters wedding, new inlaws). I needed to read that. Brings me back to what I am aspiring to be.

    Six years ago I found you Veronica while I was rehabilitating from a near fatal accident.

    I subscribed to receive your daily well wishes. I was on the path to happiness and creation and so close to God, thanks to the mind set you helped me get to.

    Two years ago I changed my email address and stopped receiving your daily inspirations. As of late, I can’t figure out where God has gone…I yearn to feel that closeness I once was inspired to get to, know and feel. I go to church, I try to self inspire when I realized what I missed.

    What I need is your guidance, your words of encouragement… that has been the change…

    Now that I have found you again, I wait on your blessings. Thanks for reaching my soul and assisting me through life.

    These questions are perfect. I love your insights and am always amazed how they come at the perfect time. But then, the Universe always gives us what we need at the time that we need it.
    Thank You, Bonnie :)

    It only takes an unselfish moment to think of someone else, if only to raise a smile!
