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!

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!

keep on keeping on

what is your passion?

what’s most important to you?

knowing your values and the answer to what is your passion or what’s most important to you helps to guide you and keep you growing. and in challenging times to help you ‘keep on keeping on’.

one of my phrases during a major life change that was challenging was, ‘it’s good it’s going’.

the changes in life throughout life may be good positive changes for us – that does not mean that they are easy to experience.

CAM00738

we need to know how to deal with and manage; doubt, fear, anxiety, high stress levels, and worry.

knowing what we are passionate about or what’s most important to us, and having goals or visions for our passions and what we want gives us a vision. so that we can move towards the vision; giving us positive energy as we move towards what is most important to us.

what is most important to you?

what are you passionate about?

are you taking steps to go in that direction? it will help you to ‘keep on keeping on’ having a positive focus on something important to you if you are going through a challenging change right now.

live your truth!

 

choice

what choices are you making?

are you choosing what’s most important to you? or are you choosing what’s easiest? or maybe you are choosing instant gratification.

choosing what’s most important to you, being in alignment with your values, your dreams and desires is the best choice to make.

the right choice doesn’t always happen, it isn’t always easy.

i don’t always have the deep burning desire and enthusiasm needed that I make every choice in alignment with who i am and what’s most important to me.

that’s okay, the ups and downs, the ebbs and flows – that’s part of life, part of growth. experiencing a low we are able to be aware of the high, to be aware of what we really want. and feeling the gap of where we are and where we want to go allows for growth.

continual growth is making repeated choices again and again for doing what’s most important to you. if you make a choice not in alignment with that, okay, move on, and your next choice can be in alignment with what’s most important to you.

choose! 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?

enjoy the journey

do you ever get caught up in want, want want?

i know that i do. i want to be more, i want to do more, i want to experience more.

it is good to want. wanting to be more, wanting bigger, wanting more leads to growth and expansion. growth and expansion to be more and experience more of what you want is good.

i get too focused on wanting sometimes, and forget to celebrate. i get so caught up in the wanting that i don’t see where i am. i am not living in the present moment. i am not enjoying the journey.

DSCN3604

it is good to be aware of where you currently are now, in the now moment. who are you being that you were not a year ago? what are doing that you were not doing a month ago? what are you experiencing that you were not experiencing last week?

celebrate where you are now! you are more than you were yesterday, last week, last month and last year. we get focused on our new want, want, want that we forget where we started from, how we have grown and expanded. when we connect the growth, we become aware of who we are in the NOW moment. we are able to enjoy our journey and not get lost in the want, want, want. celebrate your growth and expansion. celebrate who you are and who you want to be.

“We are always becoming, we are always creating. Today I am more that I was yesterday and tomorrow I am more than I am today.”

allow your want, want, want to enjoy growth and expansion. celebrate your growth feeling joy, gratitude and love in the NOW moment and enjoy your journey!

good failure

i am determined to learn and grow from my failures.

failure if you allow it is a teacher. a stepping stone along your journey.

failure if you allow it gives new energy and enthusiasm to create what you want. it gives renewed determination and a burning desire to succeed!

I will be using my recent failures to build a stronger foundation.

what have you recently failed at?

what are you scared of doing because you don’t want to fail?

img104

experiencing life fully means taking risk. stepping out of your comfort zone and allowing yourself the opportunity to fail.

failures are a good teacher. failures are a good motivator. without failure, life journeys would not be as exciting.

take the risk! failing is not failing, failing is an exciting step of growth along your journey!

habits

I want to create change and growth in my life. To create the change and growth I want to be more disciplined in some areas of my life. I know that what I need to do is create habits to be part of my routines to support the changes that I want.

One of the disciplines, a habit that I want part of my daily routines is reading my affirmations and connecting to the visions I have for the life that I want to live.

DSC05867

This habit is one that I have had in the past and slowly it became less and less a daily habit.

I didn’t notice myself missing this habit right away, then I started wondering about some of the challenges that I started experiencing in my life and I realized that when I was reading my affirmations in my morning routine my days were more positive. My days were more directed by what I want to be, what I want to do and what I want to experience. My days would have a sense of urgency, but not overwhelm.

With the challenges I was experiencing in my life many of my days I was feeling overwhelmed and stressed, rather than positive and purpose filled.

Are there habits and routines that you have had and would like to begin again? Is there a habit that you would like to create for new change in your life?

Begin a new routine today to create a new habit that will help you to change and grow!

Live Your Truth!

do my best

I want a lot. I like a lot. I want more and more.

I want things for all areas of my life; health and wellbeing, intellectual and personal growth, family, God/spiritual, relationships and recreation, business/career, financial and giving back.

I am not able to do all that I want in all areas of my life every day. That is why it is important to me to be aware of what is most important to me in the present moment. When I know what is most important to me I am able to choose what to focus on.

When I know what I want to focus on I can do my best. Doing my best today can be different from what my best was yesterday or what my best will be tomorrow. But with all that I want in my life all that I can do is do my best.

My challenge is that when I realize and am aware of what I want, I want it as soon as possible. Doing my best is doing what I can with where I am in my life. And I don’t always feel it, but it is good that I do not get all that I want right away.

The growth and expansion that comes from the actions and challenges of getting what I want is more important than achieving the want. The journey is full of meaning, full of growth and the journey is what brings transformation and new wants, expanded wants or wants that determine you do not want a particular want anymore.

Are you doing your best? Do your best today, do your best tomorrow, and you will experience your own growth and transformation!

play with life

It’s time for me to play with life.

I want changes. I want more things and I want new things. These things are not going to happen for me if I don’t make changes to allow for the new things to come into my life.

So it’s time for me to play with life. To play with my habits and routines so that I can add new habits and routines that will attract the new things that I want into my life.

I know my most productive time for creating is mornings and I want to be doing more creating than I currently am, so I’m going to play with doing some of my current morning routines later in the day and see where they could fit and allow more morning creative time for myself.

Some of the changes I want to play with will also be good for other things that I also want in my life. Being more physically active with my family and other activities that I can enjoy with my family rather than by myself.

I also like to play with life so that I don’t get stuck in being too comfortable and then resist change in my life.

Change is growth and expansion, and I like to be continually growing and expanding.

What do you want new in your life? What can you play with in your life to allow more room for what it is that you want?

Play with life! Live Your Truth!
