Appreciation is Felt in the Heart

Thanksgiving Blog QuoteAs we approach Thanksgiving this year I want to express sincere appreciation for the many opportunities to grow, become better and experience love in its highest form.

Our life is a gift not to be squandered or taken for granted but to connect with as many people as we can to share our light and love.

Instead of giving gifts, be the gift in someone’s life, you never know how your presence will affect and change their life forever.

Are You Ready to Leave Your Job for a Life Rebirth?

Beautiful Mature Woman

Often people attempt to live their lives backwards. They try to have more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You first must be who you are, then love what you do, in order to have what you want.~  Margaret Young

You are free to choose whatever you want to do with your life as soon as you realize that you have nothing to fear and that the only thing holding you back is you.

Taking a leap of faith is grounded in the belief that you are worthy of being happy and living the life of your dreams.

Ready, set go!  Take a legal pad, turn it sideways.  Now, take a moment and write in Column 1 at least three things that you want right now. These can be three big things in your life, or three small things. It doesn’t matter. Just make them three things that you want.  Then finish filling in the rest of the columns.  This will help you to determine what you want out of life and why you don’t have it.

Column 1: What Do I Want?

Column 2: What Makes Me Want That?

Column 3: What Has Kept It From Me So Far?

Column 4: What Do I Think My Chances Are Of Getting This?

Column 5: What Will Happen If I Give This To Myself?

Column 6: When I Will Go For It?

Are You Courageous?

Saying Yes to Courage

LIfe is too short to allow fear to stop you from whatever it is that you want to do.  You have to believe so strongly that you are worthy that you don’t waste time and energy analyzing what you’re contemplating.

You have to find the courage step out of your comfort zone and just do it. Let life take care of the details.

So what if no one believes in you, if you do that is all that matters. It is time for women to let courage rise and be the change we are here for without doubt, hesitation, fear or worry.

Step through your fear into the doorway of change and the unknown, you can do it, I know you can.

Where There is Love, Stuff Takes a Back Seat

People Instead of StuffIf you know your heart, then you know why there is a you and a me and all those of us who are on our journey to bring love and compassion to the world….

if there weren’t people who paid more attention to their stuff then caring about people then they wouldn’t need to be reminded of love and their connection to the human race…so we should feel blessed that we are carrying the message of love with our hearts outstretched to the world..

Foolproof Ways to Improve Your Life

Let go and let life happen

The only magic a control wand has is disappointment and grief.

No matter how hard you try, you can’t just wave a magic wand and make something happen

Let go of what you can’t control. Channel all that energy into living fully in the now.” -Karen Salmansohn

How do we stay present? Most of our thoughts are about the past or the future, rather than the present moment. What we end up doing is passing through the moment by concentrating on what was or what may be and in doing so we miss the gift of now. That’s how life ends up passing us by – we do it to ourselves.

Part of being present is learning to go with the flow of life and releasing the need to control the results or outcome of a situation or challenge you are faced with.

Coming from someone who was a control queen which always includes needless suffering and usually ends negatively, trust me I know, I’ve done it to myself, a learning experience for sure.  I have since learned to listen to my gut and follow my instincts and even though I don’t always understand what I am going through and why, it always turns out for me in a way I could have never imagined. That is the beauty of letting go of control, because there are millions of possibilities that a situation could go in and letting go makes that possible, I know I’ve experienced the magic of the Universal flow.

 

Affirmations to Help You Learn to Let Go

I willingly surrender my attachment to what other people might think about me.”

“I let go of my attachment to the material things that surround me—I can take these or leave them; it is all the same.”

“I give up the negative emotions that have created a comfort zone for me—they no longer serve me.”

“I release the need to judge others’ thoughts and beliefs.”

Are you ready to let go of unnecessary stress, worry, and anxiety from your life, work and relationships?

Giving up control doesn’t sound easy, but it can be.  Rather than trying so hard to make something happen, take a leap of faith and follow your heart, there is true power in choosing this way of being, it works every time.

Control costs you:

  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Freedom
  • Energy
  • Creativity
  • Support
  • Ease
  • Connection
  • Love

Start by asking yourself a few important questions:

  1. Why am I afraid will happen if I let go of control?  How does my fear affect me and those around me?  (Be honest with yourself.)
  2. Am I willing to let go of control? (this may sound difficult, but we really don’t have control of anything but ourselves so this one is well worth your time to work on.)
  3. Look for support.  (Find someone who already knows how to let go of control who is willing to help you learn to go with the flow of life.)

Key actions to help you start on your own:

  • Surrender and feel the state of tranquility.  Be of the mind that you intend to take a leap of faith and allow life to flow from your intuition.

 

  • Be present, in other words stay in the moment.  When you can let of the past go and trying to forecast what the future holds for you, you will begin the process of going with the flow.  When you live in the moment, you will know that life is too precious to waste on worry or being fearful, neither of those  emotions does anything to help your situation.  The past is gone and over and the future isn’t here yet, so you really have no choice but to be in the now.  There is a great deal of power in being right where you are.

 

  • Take a laugh break every day. Find something to make you laugh until you can’t breathe every day.  Laughter is the best medicine isn’t just a quote, it truly is the best way to relax and feel better!

 

  • Go outside and take a walk, take a deep breath and enjoy nature, it feels good and you will feel better.  I guarantee it, I do it all of the time.  I have been through some pretty tough situations that have lightened when I’ve gone outside. It will help you to relax and find search your heart for a solution.  You will get ideas and answers to help you to deal with anything you are faced with.

When you ask yourself open-ended questions you ignite your conscious mind and create a new way to a solution.  I wish you all of the magic and miracles that life has to offer.

Examples:

Am I happy with____________________________?What do I think would happen if I chose____________________?Is there another way to ___________________?What else can I do_________________?Is there something specific that I am looking for?

 

 

Are you ready to take a leap of faith and trust in yourself and in life?
