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?
Joy is a spiritual union between life’s unsettling moments and knowing you are divinely protected. Joy understands what is happening around you is real, but it does not define you. Joy isn’t an emotion, it’s a quality that resides in each of us; that takes us through life’s negative stuff. Joy is an energy that allows us to see beyond the problems. It’s a faith in something greater than us. Have a Joyful June!
What makes you smile that has nothing to do with anyone or anything?
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?
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.
