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!
Today, people in the United States celebrate Thanksgiving. People around the world have learned that giving thanks throughout the everyday increases an abundant flow that is greater than money. It encourages richer relationships, increased sharing, belonging, living fully, peace of mind, wisdom and love of life!
I am grateful we are here in this world! Thankful for the gifts we share. I wish for us the courage needed to find our undiscovered strengths, and endless encouragement to incorporate those strengths in our daily interactions.
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?
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?
You are powerful! Look at what you have created in your life. It does not matter whether you wanted the life you have or not; if you accept the notion, you created it. By accepting it, you now get to use the power you have to change what you don’t like and give thanks for what you do have that you want!
Are you willing to accept your personal power to evoke change?
Are you using your personal power to create good for yourself and others?
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”?
Every one of us has open hurts likely from an incident or two in our past. What are you pouring into those wounds? Are you pouring cement or love? Cement hardens us; but love opens us up to infinite possibilities. Choose wisely what you pour because if you do not transform your pain, you will transmit it to the people you care about…
Do you find yourself hardening your outer shell to keep others out?
Do you have any possibilities that require you to pour more love?
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?
