Make today a perfect day. Open your eyes to see the beauty all around. Take time to connect with your heart. Create passion in your life by celebrating the colors of this glorious day.

"Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls," taught beloved humanitarian Mother Teresa.

In her soul survival kit, Finding Your Way Home (1996), best-selling author Melody Beattie called the soul's purpose "home" and urged, "Connect with your soul's plan for your life."  With trust in God and through affirmations, meditation, and guided imagery, Beattie believed our souls can find a way to tap into the "highest-good spiritual path."

"Stop trying so hard to peer into the future to see what lies ahead," she explained. "What we really need to see is where and who we are right now."

About personal transformation and letting intuition be life's guiding force, the guru of creative visualization Shakti Gawain wrote in Living in the Light (1998), "When I feel my focus on the universe inside, I can have everything: money, success, and fulfilling relationships, as well as that incredible connection inside of me."

Take a minute to ask yourself, what would make this day perfect... and go for it! Make room for a miracle. With enthusiasm, risk. Enjoy the present moment: LIVE!

"Lead me, O Lord,—till perfect Day shall shine," wrote poet Adelaide Anne Procter. "Through Peace to Light."

Celebrate today, your perfect day!
