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…
This is a suggested season of loving and giving. However, for some people it’s a time of stress and loneliness in the midst of crowds.
As this year approaches it’s end, my wish for you all is that you find joy in the present moments of your day. Experience joy in another’s smile. Give joy by acknowledging someone with a kind word. Be the love in the world you wish to feel! You are a present!
Your real beauty and wholeness resides inside of you! If you don’t see it, you may have buried your inner specialness. I recommend that you lift up (admit) and discard (forgive) your old mistakes and hurts. Now you are free to think; what if it’s true that you are beautiful on the inside? Get comfortable with the belief; start by repeating to yourself, “I have inner beauty.”
When you recognize your inner beauty, how can you let it shine?
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?
Are you all in, or do you have one foot in and one foot out of your work, project or relationships? Half in and half out is a structure for pretense. The way to know you are all in is you tell the truth, own your feelings, and practice compassion toward yourself and others!
Where are you all in and where are you not all in your life?
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”?
Align your feelings with your faith in a situation and watch the impossible become possible! Being in that kind of sync is a powerful force, and it resides within you! You do not have to look outside yourself for answers because your faith and your feelings are your responsibility.
Are your feelings and your faith in sync?
What changes can you make to align your feelings and faith?
You choose who you want to be in this world, so choose wisely. If you are quick to anger, replace that reaction with loving thoughts. If you are fearful, replace it with a trust in a foundation that is greater then your worries. It is impossible to be loving and anxious at the same time. For each one of you who insists I do not know what you have been through, that makes you the way you are – the operative word is “through”; otherwise you would still be “in” the situation. If you continue to carry the past, you will surely miss the “present” moment. Let me repeat myself; choose wisely!
Homework: What are the characteristics of whom you really are that you want to share with the world?
What is holding you back from sharing who you are?
There are others with similar genes to yours, but there isn’t anyone else that is you! That makes you incredible. You are wonderfully unique. It’s often beyond comprehension how incredible you really are, but may I suggest that you try? When you get comfortable with your own incredibleness you are more able to see the incredible trait that resides in others. It’s time to claim it, you are incredible!
Can you be grateful for how incredible you are in this world?
