life is meant to be enjoyed.

“Life should be an exciting adventure. The sun should rise within you each day in terms of the richness of your feelings and the sharpness of your perceptions. You should carve out goals for yourself that will inspire you to enthusiastic action. going toward life with vigor, no matter what your age, you should never fear death.” ~Maxwell Maltz

to enjoy the journey is to do the things that make you happy. what do you enjoy doing? what’s most important to you? who do you want to be? what do you want to do?

don’t worry about what other people may think, don’t worry about making others happy. make yourself happy and do the things that are most important to you.

to enjoy the journey is to choose who to be and do what is most important to you. you chose to do this thing, be grateful that you are now doing it.

everyday we make choices; from the moment we wake to the moment we sleep. to enjoy the journey and live with enthusiasm be grateful for all the moments you are choosing.

judging and awareness

i like to be aware, and i like to be grateful.

so often i find myself judging and comparing myself. i need to do this, i need to do that, i’m not doing a good enough job at this, and i need to start doing this because this isn’t…

can you relate?

what do you judge yourself for falling short of, or even failing? i judge myself a lot more than i care to!

i am getting better and better at being grateful for the awareness that judging and comparing of myself brings. in my awareness i choose to turn the judging and comparing to gratitude for knowing what i want.

i am grateful for knowing where i am and where i want to go. i am grateful for knowing what i want to learn, what i want to teach, what i want to empower.

i am grateful for knowing who i want to be, what i want to do, what i want to experience and the life that i want to create and live!

what judging and comparing can you turn to gratitude for knowing what you want? who you want to be, what you want to do, what you want to experience and to create and live the life that you want to live!

live your truth!

 

what do you really want?

have you ever been frustrated because a situation was not going how you want it to go?

you know, you are with a group of people, and it’s just not going the way that you want it to go. i mean, everybody should know that it’s supposed to happen exactly in this one way, your way. how could there be any other way than the way that you want it? and your just getting annoyed and frustrated because it’s not what you want. people aren’t acting according to what you want!

i have these moments. oh boy, i can get so frustrated that my body is tight and tense and i just want to scream and make it happen my way, and there just isn’t any way for me to do that!

I have learned, by some wonderful grace, to step back and look at the bigger picture. i will ask myself, “what do i really want?”

i am able to realize that the situation that i am trying to control is a small piece of the whole adventure of life, and although it may be something that should get done, in the whole picture of life – it’s not what’s most important!

my shoulders relax, my breathe deepens, and i am open to gratitude! i become grateful for this moment, in this moment i am connected to what i want, and what i want is to enjoy my life journey filled with amazing deep rich relationships. and that is what’s happening!

what do you really want?

live your truth!

present moment awareness

i like to be aware and connected to my visions for my dreams and desires, my visions for my life goals. i like to take time and imagine being who i want to be, doing what i want to do, experiencing what i want to experience and creating the life that i want to live.

when i am connected to my visions i am able to live in present moment awareness with positive high energy, being and doing what is most important to me. when i am connected to my visions i am able to feel gratitude for my being and living.

DSCN3604

i am able to make decisions that are positive feeling, decisions to be and do what is most important to me in the NOW moment. what i choose to be and choose to do in the NOW moment does not always give me instant gratification, but the being and doing is gratitude because i am feeling positive high energy for my choices and the being and doing that i’m doing.

i am feeling gratitude in the NOW moment because of the experiences i have had that guided me and empowered me to be being who i am and doing what i want in the NOW moment. i am feeling gratitude for the NOW moment of experiencing and creating the life that i want to live, being and becoming more of who i want to be, and doing and experiencing more of what i want to do.

there are some areas of my life that my thoughts wander to negative feelings of doubt, worry, anxiousness, stress or overwhelm and it takes an awareness to guide my mind to positive feelings, connecting to what i want and feeling the positive energy flow through me. to be in the present moment i do not worry about the how, i think about the why and how i want to feel. when i am connected to how i want to feel and the visions of my dreams and desires i am able to be who i want to be and do what i want to do. i am able to make choices that are positive and in alignment with what’s most important to me.

there is so much that i want to be, that i want to do and that i want to experience. i am connecting to what i want instead of any worries or doubts. when something triggers negative emotions i guide my mind to think about what i really want and connect to the way i want to feel living and experiencing that want. i think about the vision of who i want to be, what i want to do, and what i want to experience and imagine living that NOW!

are you being who you want to be? are you doing what you want to do? are you experiencing what you want to experience? are you living in present moment awareness?

live your truth!

how do I get all that I want?

I do not know how to get all that I want right now.

I know that I don’t need to know how, the Universe will guide me.

how do I let go and allow the Universe to guide me to all that I want?

gratitude and enjoy the journey!

enjoying the journey, experiencing life’s ups and downs. living in present moment awareness.

to do

I am overwhelming myself with all that I want to do and with all that I think I have to do.

It is time for me to take a moment and prioritize, to refocus.

  • What is most important to me?
  • What can I let go?
  • Will doing this empower me?
  • Will doing this empower others?
  • How will doing this make me feel?
  • What do I truly want?
  • What can I leverage?
  • What can I change?
  • Who do I want to be?
  • What do I want to do?
  • What do I want to experience?

These questions help me to refocus my energy on what is most important to me. There are “busy work” things that I do need to do for living my life, but when I have thought about my priorities and connected to what’s most important to me I shift to doing with a sense of urgency.

DSC04299

I am able to let go the overwhelm and anxiousness I was feeling and allow the desire and positive energy feelings into my doing. I feel happy and grateful for all that I have that creates my to do list.

With this shift I am able to do more, to accomplish more, my energy isn’t wasted on worrying and doubt.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are you worrying, feeling anxious or doubt? Are you feeling positive focused energy? Are you happy and grateful?

If you need a shift, ask yourself: What’s most important to me? Am I being empowered? What can I play with and change? What do I want to experience?

Imagination and Gratitude

Do you know that you can choose to be grateful? Gratitude is an attitude, and we choose our attitude. We choose how we are going to respond to any situation. We choose how we are going to respond in each moment that we live and experience.

If you don’t like what is happening, or you don’t like how you are feeling, you can choose to feel positive feelings, you can choose to feel gratitude.

Gratitude has made a big difference in my life. It is gratitude that has tipped my life from feeling negative throughout the day to feeling positive throughout the day. Choosing to be grateful from the small to the big has changed me and transformed me. As I chose to be grateful and focused on the positive, I attracted and created more and more positive in my life.

I had moments in my life that I was feeling so low, so lost, so alone and I knew that I had to start focusing on positive. It is with gratitude that I was able to switch my focus to positive thoughts. I would open my journal and begin to write, “I am so happy and grateful for …” and I would begin to list what I was happy and grateful for. Some days this was not easy to do, I didn’t feel happiness for anything but my kids. And that is where I would start. “I am so happy and grateful for my kids, the sunshine, blue skies, coffee, sitting in the sun, green grass, kids playing outside, my deck” and slowly it would expand. “my job, being able to work from home, having a home, having a car, my family, my Grandpa, going to my Grandpa’s lake home, time spent with my family, traditions.” And slowly it would expand more into some of my wants and goals, and now all the way to my dreams and desires. “my business, reading, learning, a retreat center, writing a book, living in my dream home on the lake, traveling the world, being surrounded by nature.” Journaling in this way turned my negativity into positivity, and being able to focus on positive dreams and desires has made all the difference in my life.

I began to believe and trust more and more of the dreams and desires that I wrote about. I began growing and expanding, first in feeling good and positive more and more. Then expanding, like the ripples in the water, into all areas of my life and my being who I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do and experiencing what I wanted to experience.

As I was grateful for what I wanted, I used my imagination. Imagination activated my power. The power we all have within ourselves to create the life that we want to live. Napoleon Hill wrote, “… imagination is the most marvelous, miraculous, inconceivably powerful force the world has ever known.”

With our imagination, we can build the picture of what we want. We can create the vision for the life that we want to live. With our imagination, we can clarify who we want to be, what we want to do and what we want to experience.

What are you grateful for? Are you imagining the life you want to live?

Live Your Truth!

what do you want?

I’ve been thinking about what I want, about what’s most important to me. Choosing to think about what I want creates positive energy in my day.

Being grateful, finding gratitude in all that is creates positive energy in my day.

Creating the image of what I want and visualizing all that I want, becoming attached to it emotionally create positive energy in my day.

To create positive living every day and most every moment, and to create a burning desire for my passion that I am growing and expanding in my passion and purpose and that I am living and experiencing life fully. I am living my truth.

Are you grateful? Are you creating the image of what you want?

imagine01

Awareness of who I am and what I want. Who I want to be. What I want to do. What I want to experience. Creating the life I want to live. Creating the burning desire to Be, to Do, and to Experience!

Living in trust! That is want I want. Gratitude, present moment, act as if, do my best at what I can, do what’s most important to me. Choosing positive. Saying ‘no’ to say ‘yes’ to what I want. Living in trust.

Do you know who you are? Do you know who you want to be? Do you know what you want to do? Do you know what you want to experience?

Building, creating the image and desire for what I want. Visualize and imagine all that I want. Feel what I will feel living what I want. Live in trust.

Taking risks that I might fail. Knowing that I will fail. Knowing failures are part of growth. Trusting failures and being grateful for the experiences. Failure experiences and success experiences. Growth experiences and fulfillment experiences.

Loving myself enough to live life fully! Loving those most important to me that they live life fully! Live in trust!

Are you taking risks? Are you loving yourself enough that you life your life goals, your life dreams? Are you loving yourself enough that you are living a fulfilled life?

Live Your Truth!

accept what is

it is what is is and i’ll do my best and let go the rest.

you do not need to be emotionally attached to the outcome of anything. you can accept that it is not what you want it to be. as soon as you accept that, the negativity and lack and overwhelm drift away.

you still have your wants, wanting more, wanting it to be better than it is, but you do not have the worry and fret, and you don’t have to try to do it all.

for the things that i want, i can do what i can to create them, and, let go the rest. trust that what is, is supposed to be. trust that this moment will lead to the next moment. that each moment is what it is supposed to be and that you will grow and expand and what you want will be.

some of your wants will be exactly what you want, some of your wants you will let go completely because you no longer want it, and some of your wants will be much more and better than you ever imagined they would and could be.

“Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.” ~Eckhart Tolle

what can you accept today? accept what is, trust that this moment will lead into the next moment exactly as it should.

accepting what is, you let go the negative feelings and allow for the positive feelings. what in this experience can you be grateful for? what is it that you want?

find the gratitude that is in the moment, there is always something when you are willing to look and find it.

imagine and visualize what it is that you want and begin to attract the into your life.

let go, and allow the positive to flow back to you!

live your truth!

enjoy the journey

do you wake with energy, excitement and enthusiasm for a new day to experience and create your life journey?

do you go to sleep feeling fulfilled with love, gratitude and joy for a day well lived?

enjoy the moments of your life!

enjoy the challenges that give you growth and expansion!

enjoy the ups and downs!

all experiences are a part of the whole and good!

gratitude, awareness and choice. you can choose to find gratitude in all of life’s moments, the up moments and the down moments, there is something to be grateful for.

dsc04446

you can choose to be aware and choose positive, choose a positive attitude and choose what is most important to you (sometimes this means saying ‘no’ so that you can say ‘yes’ to what’s most important).

what are you grateful for today? who are you grateful for today? write down what your are grateful for. tell the people you are grateful for their being in your life.

Happy Mother’s Day!
