Life and a bowl of cherries!

Life2Relax and Breathe…Yes, life is hard and it sucks sometimes. But, we tend to make things worse by over thinking, being way too hard on ourselves and by buying into the mind game that this is “how it has to be”. Listen, no one knows better than I do how incredibly tough it can get. I have been there. But nothing is gained by staying in that space. You are no good to anyone when you buy into that BS notion that life just sucks AND that this is how life is meant to be. Key there: “meant to be”. That is just not true!

Is life always a “bowl of cherries” or whatever fruit makes you happy? Of course not! And, let’s not buy into that idea either because that is unrealistic.That’s just more of that mind game really.

How about finding the space in life (it takes you not giving up or giving in. This shit ain’t easy you know!) where things flow more often than not? How about accepting that things will be tough from time to time and allowing that to be? Allowing yourself that space to feel sad or bad or angry? Yes, that is okay too. It really is.

Where things get muddied up is when we stay there. When we let that become who we are and what we are. That does not need to happen! Ever…..

Today why not make conscious choices and create the day that YOU want. Take a few minutes to be grateful. Gratitude is a magic trick that can do amazing things in your life, if you are consistent with it. Why not accept that things might (probably will) happen that are not according to plan? If you come at life that way it’s hard to get knocked down and even harder for things to keep you down…

Love, Peace and Joy to you my friends!

Don’t sink your own ship!!

Sea of water

There is so much in the world that can pull us down these days for sure. No way to get around that. It exists. Yet, if you “allow” that negativity to “sink” your attitude and bring you down you negate the good that you can bring into your space in this world.

I am not saying that you walk around with your head in the clouds. In fact, true compassion actually brings you more in touch with the sadness, pain, etc. that is there. But, when you choose to not attach to that sadness you are bringing light into that darkness. You can be that positive force for good in that way. Why not be that? Why not allow yourself to feel that pain but NOT let it become who you are? That is a very powerful thing indeed. It is Love. It is Divine….

Are you really unworthy?

 

We all have beliefs that we’re attached to that, when looked at through a skeptical lens, might not fit or work for us any longer. In fact, they might lack truth for us and cause more harm than good now.

For instance…

Many of us were taught to put ourselves last, and as a consequence we attracted feelings of being unworthy and undeserving. As those feelings lodged within us, we continued to attract more life situations that had us feel more unworthy and not enough.

You must change that thinking…

Taking care of Y-O-U is the best way to be of service to others. By recognizing who you really are you change the energy that you bring into this world. Much like the difference between sunshine on a cloudy day versus that brilliant, warm, invigorating sun that shines when the skies are clear. The sun is still there in both cases though. You must uncover those clouds and let your true light shine!

When you do that you begin to impact others in the best possible way. Shining, positive, and a shower of divine energy to others….
