how old are you?

did i just make you cringe? what feelings do you have when you are asked how old you are? many people wonder why someone wants to know, thoughts of what are they going to tell me to be aware of or watch out for. many of us start thinking about what we are supposed to expect at a coming age, what dire changes are up ahead?

do you have expectations for different ages? did you, do you, look forward to certain things happening at each age? 

does any of what you expect seem like fun to you? it seems to me that aging has a negative feeling connected to it, people don’t want to get older or admit how old they are because there are more negative associations with aging than positive.

does your age in years define any part of your life? do you let age determine what you can and can’t do? or what you decide to do or not do? why?

i don’t believe any of it. why should age influence what you want? age doesn’t define you. why not go for what you want no matter what your age. experiences are more to living than age, so let your age beliefs go and focus on experiences.

as i “age” my experiences are expanding and i’m becoming more wise and free from judgement. i’m learning more about who i am, what i like, what i want to enjoy and bring into my life. i look forward to many activities and experiences.

and i’ll let you in on a little secret, age doesn’t have anything to do with what we can and can’t do! yes, as we age, we definitely change, but i believe more of our age beliefs are in our head and not in our body and mind.

if you want to do something, and you are in a body and mind that can do it, do it! go out and enjoy it! be the “old” man swimming in a speedo, or the “old” woman running a 10K in a sports bra.

write the book that’s been on your mind, try the new activity you see so many “young” people enjoying, start something you always dreamed of doing.

you are wiser and your past experiences bring more to the new experiences that you enjoy. live life and keep growing and expanding, not letting age hold you back keeps you young, and is expanding your life for each experience.

now’s your time! if you feel it, do! you are never to old to keep enjoying many different experiences, both old and new to you. what i want for you, is for you to add some new experiences into your life!

expand and grow, always, until the end of this life experience!

live your truth!

always questions

am i being who i want to be? what do i want? what is most important to me?

i haven’t been experiencing and sharing and being and doing in all that’s important to me like i want to.

i became so focused on living life that i forgot to live life. i forgot to enjoy life and to share life.

i created this bubble around me to only let in so much. i wasn’t allowing myself to fully experience. i wasn’t allowing myself to fully be who i want to be. i wasn’t allowing myself to fully do what i want to do. and that was limiting my experiences.

part of this bubble was created because of expectations of myself to be not perfect… but yet perfect in every way, in all areas of life. i lost touch with the growth and expansion that i expect from life and that i truly enjoy from life. i got caught up in, ‘this is what i want, so i want it now’. my wanting to be all these different things, i got lost in the being and the doing and i wasn’t experiencing life.

time to pop the bubble and begin being and doing, with all the experiences of the bumps, twists and turns, failing and trying again, and experience life. experiencing all of life fully and not just a little bubble of life of limitation.

what bubble have you placed around yourself? is it time for you to pop your bubble?

live your truth!

do you dare?

when was the last time you took a risk?

risk is a part of life for growth, expansion and living life fully.

taking risk is pushing your comfort zone, it is expanding your boundaries to include and explore more in your life.

when you are living life on the edge and expanding, you will be more fulfilled and enjoy your life journey more fully.

  • who do you want to be?
  • what do you want to do?
  • what do you want to experience?
  • what is something new that you can try?
  • what is something old that you should let go?

is it scary to step out into the unknown? not knowing where the safety net is, or if there even is a safety net. the feeling of being scared to experience something new is a good feeling. it is an indication that you are growing and expanding.

where can you take a risk today? what is something new that you can do and experience? take the risk.

live your truth!

imagining

lost in thought. lost in dream. i love visualizing and imagining. when i visualize and imagine i connect to me inner being and connect to my dreams and desires.

visualizing and imagining creates new ideas and new thoughts to explore what i want. who i want to be, what i want to do and what i want to experience.

do you visualize? do you imagine the life that you want to live? do you visualize being the person that you want to be? do you imagine doing what you want to do and experiencing what you want to experience?

when you visualize you connect to your inner being and your dreams and desires. visualizing allows you to dream about the life that you want to live and see new ideas to how you can choose to grow and expand.

when we visualize and imagine the life that we want to live; who we want to be, what we want to do and experience, we are creating a burning desire and a sense of urgency within us that motivates us to take action in becoming who we want to be and doing what we want to do.

imagine! take 5 minutes now and visualize and imagine the life that you want to live.

live your truth!

curiosity

are you curious about life? are you curious about YOUR life?

curiosity is a way to stay connected to the important people in your life as well as being aware of what’s most important to you in the present.

  • who do you want to be?
  • what do you want to do?
  • what do you want to experience?
  • what’s your favorite thing to do currently?
  • what’s something new that you want to try?

as we live and experience life we are continually growing and expanding. who we want to be, what we want to do and what we want to experience changes with our experiences.

being curious allows us to open to new awareness to connect with what is most important to us now. thinking about and connecting to what we want, we continue growing and expanding instead of slowing down or stopping altogether.

it is normal in life to come to a plateau, it is when we reach a plateau in an area of our life that we can bring curiosity in and explore what we now want.

are there plateaus in your life currently? is there an area of your life that you are feeling stuck or ‘out of sorts’ with?

get curious, ask yourself some questions about all of life or a certain area of your life:

  • what makes me happy?
  • who do i want to be?
  • what do i want to do and experience?
  • what is important to me?
  • what do I enjoy doing?

allow curiosity in your life to help you live your life fully. allow curiosity to be aware of who you want to be, what you want to do and what you want to experience so that you are creating the life that you want to live.

live your truth!

the gap

have you ever felt lost or disconnected and unsure?

wondering what do I want? where do I want to go from here? who do I want to be? what exactly do I want to do? what do I want to experience?

is there something in your life that you have been feeling uncomfortable with?

the feelings of being lost, disconnected and unsure are feelings of the gap. the gap between where you are and where you want to go.

the gap between who you are and who you want to be.

the gap between doing what you are doing and doing what you want to do.

the gap between doing what you are experiencing and what you want to experience.

the gap between being and becoming more.

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~Anais Nin

are you aware of your gaps? where are you uncomfortable or feeling lost right now?

who do you want to be? what do you want to do? what do you want to experience?

connected

who are you connected to? what are you connected to?

I like to be connected to myself. I like to be connected to my inner being, and being connected to my inner wisdom. I like to be aware of what I want and what is most important to me.

I like to be connected to those I love and are most important to me. I like to share and experience life with them. I like to enjoy deep rich conversations and new experiences with those I love.

I like to be connected to nature. I like to feel the flow of the water, I like to feel Earth’s energy flow up through me from the ground. I like to enjoy the awe and wonder of all the beauty that nature is.

I like to be connected to the Universe God. I like to be connected to all that is. I like to feel love, joy, gratitude, abundance and freedom!

I like to be connected to others. I like to learn, grow and expand from others. I like to empower and encourage others to live their truth. I like to be curious and connect with many unique people and see their authentic beauty in their being and doing.

what are you connected to in this moment? who are you connected to in this moment?

live your truth!

ideas

How many ideas do you have for all different areas of your life? How many ideas for wants that you have? How many ideas for new wants?

Ideas to create the visions that you want. Ideas for new experiences that you want to have. Ideas for living your life fully.

What do you do with the many ideas that you have? What should you do with all the ideas that you have?

Some ideas should be acted upon as soon as possible to create what they can create.

Some ideas are a springboard for new ideas and new visions that can be held, live their purpose quickly and can then be let go.

Some ideas will surface, then sink down again and resurface later when you are ready for the change and growth that the idea will bring.

How do you feel when you get a new idea? When you feel more strongly about an idea that idea is one that you should take more immediate action on.

What ideas have you had? What ideas have you followed? What ideas do you want to follow?

Act on an idea today, or think more on an idea that you have had and create something new that you want.

Live Your Truth!

celebrate

I’ve taken some of what I have for granted. I haven’t celebrated and I haven’t been grateful in my wanting.

I want a lot. I know I want a lot in all areas of my life. I think that it is good to want, wanting something is having a goal, a challenge, a dream, a desire. Wanting something opens my being up to growth and expansion.

To be more. To do more. To experience more. To live how I want to live.

So much of the time I get caught in the day-to-day of what is. Each new day being better than the next, however living in the day-to-day, I do not realize the growth and expansion I’ve had. I get so focused on what it is that I want, that I forget to notice where it was that I had been.

I don’t see how much my life has improved, how much better each area of my life is. How I’ve grown and expanded in my being, my doing. And sometimes I don’t realize all the experiences I have had and enjoyed.

And then I become aware because of an idea, thought or experience, and I am so happy and grateful for where I am in the present moment! I am grateful for my growth and expansion.

I am aware in this present moment! I am so happy and grateful for who I am, what I am doing, what I am experiencing! I am so happy and grateful for where I was, and that I am aware so that I can celebrate my growth and expansion to where I am now.

I am grateful for my new expanded wants, dreams and desires! I am grateful that I will continually grow and expand with new wants, dreams and desires emerging from my being, doing and experiences! I am growing!

Where are you? Where were you? What can you celebrate? What do you want now?

Live Your Truth!

journey

Our journey is all our life’s moments. Our growth and expansion to being who we want to be, doing what we want to do, and experiencing what we want to experience. Our journey is little moments and big moments, little experiences and big experiences. It is the ups and downs, the challenges and celebrations of living a life that is continually changing, growing and transforming.

How often are you living in the moment? How often are you aware that this NOW moment is the only moment there is, the only moment that matters?

Awareness of who you are and what you want is what allows you to make the positive choices in the now moment to live and to create the life that you want to live. Awareness that you are responsible for your choices is what allows you to be positive and grateful for what you are living, to enjoy the moment – your life journey.

Live Your Truth!
