It’s been an inspirational year. We started in January 2015, and I declared this would be a year long commitment. My desire was and continues to be that you will grab possibility and make it your reality! I’ll connect with you again. Embrace your new beginning! Be the light…
The other day, someone I care about did something that hurt my feelings. I felt the full impact of fear. My body was heavy, tight and tired. While sitting still with the fear, my mind opened enough for me to realize fear isn’t our natural state of being. It is natural to feel light and buoyant and curious. That shift in awareness allowed me to feel alive and love again.
The next time you feel heavy, can you shed light on what you fear?
How can you bring yourself back to your natural state of being – – alive and loving?
We want people to be compassionate with us. Here’s the radical part; we have to be compassionate with ourselves and others in order to expect it from others! Compassion is possible when we are authentic, feel worthy, and accept as humans that we are sometimes imperfect.
Are you daring enough to show yourself and others compassion?
We were all born with dignity. As babies, we cried out for what we needed; and more often than not, those needs were met. Somewhere along the life path, we were taught to stop asking for what we wanted as if it were not dignified to have what we want and need.
As adults, let’s reclaim the dignity in seeking what we need. Let’s be brave enough to expect our needs to be met!
What thoughts hold you back from asking for what you need?
What can you do for yourself and what can you ask others to help you with today?
As you incorporate who you really are in your everyday interactions, you begin to realize who you are is enough. Your authentic self always feels more alive than your pretend self. Your authentic power is born inside you! It is time to reconnect and let it out!
What three things can you do to show yourself that “you are enough”?
I’m speaking of the light within you that is your gift to share with all the people you greet. What do you do that seems so easy, yet people compliment you on regular basis? There lies a hint of your brilliance! Is it your smile that brightens the day of others? Do you turn a phrase that makes people laugh loudly? Does your intellect give way to new ideas? Whatever your gift, share it lovingly and watch how your brilliance lights up your every interaction!
Seek first to find the goodness in others. It’s too easy to see someone’s flaws. We search for their missteps to protect ourselves from a real connection. Look for their beauty within. Really see the person, not the color of their hair, but the strength of their history. Allow yourself to have a more authentically positive human connection. We have hidden our desire for real human intimacy for far too long. Let us love and be loved this day and every day.
