I LOVE this! I’m currently on a (sometimes very painful) journey to get good with this. I’m here for the reasons I’m here. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. Truly.
This must be one of the hardest, and most needed-to re-learn lessons most of us go through. While reading a Neale Donald Walsch kids book today I was again reminded to shift my perspective from one of pain, or victim…to appreciating that those who are putting pain, or struggle, or JUDGEMENT in my way..are doing it because I asked for growth,
I asked for healing and I asked to be the BEST person I could be.
So, I have a choice to embrace that. To not turn victim but be grateful for the reminder to live MY purpose. I’m not going to lie…that’s a HUGE task. On days when I feel up for it..boy does the world seem fresh and exciting. On others days…not so much.
What about you?
I spend a lot of time contemplating this..sometimes to a fault. I mean, if my divine purpose is to contemplate my divine purpose than I’m actually doing really well…but I don’t think that’s it somehow.
I am in a place where I’m feeling the ‘if not now, then when’ clock tick. And, instead of worrying about my every move and if it sets me further on the right path, or in the opposite direction I figure it’s probably better to just keep moving forward and trust that what’s to unfold will do just that. Working on my faith in the grand unfolding…and more to come…
Here is our family Dream Board! So happy with the results. We all had a ton of fun cutting out pictures, talking about them and getting prepped. I DID have to drag everyone back to the table to actually place and glue but it was a totally fun and successful activity. Later, we’re going to hang it and then take turns sharing why we picked what we did.
I really can’t wait to experience all of this awesomeness this summer!
How about you? Get started yet?
What am I waiting for? I’m going to make my list TODAY…and I’m not going to call it my Bucket List. Not because I don’t want to acknowledge that I will someday kick the bucket..but because I don’t want to do these things, with that as my motivation. We’re here to experience, to love, to live with Passion. And, that’s just what I intend to continue doing-only, I’m going to start doing it better.
By better, I mean I’m working on committing to worrying less, beating myself up less and just generally stop being so serious. Seriously, no, I mean, truly-I want to:
1. laugh more
2. go to the beach and swim in the ocean instead of saying I don’t like sand in my suit..which I don’t, but still..
I’m working on it already! How about you?
You have more promise and more potential than you can possibly imagine. You are better, stronger, smarter, and more capable than you know. You were born with unlimited potential and designed to succeed. And you’re just now getting started.
- Shad Helmstetter
One of my favorite authors and speakers is Shad Helmstetter, who wrote ‘What to Say When you Talk to Yourself”, and “The Gift”, among others. Had the pleasure of hearing him speak for the 5th time last weekend and his loving delivery and poignant message are still running through my mind.
As co-creators of our lives, it’s important to remember that what we feed our minds, our minds believe. If we want abundance, contribution and love to be our reality, we must THINK, abundance, contribution and love.–

“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.”
- B.K.S. Iyengar
I love the image of the gates of the soul opening wide! I imagine myself with arms outstretched, welcoming life and all it’s mysteries into my being! I’ve spent the better part of the last 3 + years on a serious path to wellness..body and mind. And it amazes me how much more in love I am with life as a result! Preview
