stop your thoughts

what are your dominant thoughts throughout the day?

are your thoughts positive for what you want, grateful for the now moment, or negative?

when your thoughts are negative – feeling the lack of what you want, wandering aimlessly about things that are not true and will not happen, angry or overwhelmed – what do you do to stop your thoughts?

do you think about what you do want?

do you think about what you can be grateful for in the now moment?

do you journal, go for a walk, meditate?

do you say out loud “stop!” to interrupt the thought and pick a new one?

when you realize that your thoughts are negative, choose one of the above to stop those thoughts and focus on something positive.

what will you practice this week?

live your truth!

time gets away

time

what is time exactly? minutes, seconds, days, hours, years. moon cycles. the rising and setting of the sun.

what does time mean to you?

how do you use time?

does time seem to slip away? how is time getting away from you?

what do you want to do in a moment?

what do you want to do in a day, hour, week, year?

are you doing what’s most important to you?

are you grateful for what you choose to do?

are you aware of what you are choosing with your moments of time?

time

how real is time? how important is time?

what are you doing in each moment, and what gratitude you feel is how you are using your time.

enjoy your time, your moments

live your truth!

gift of weakness

little, weak

strong, positive

small, exposed

why do i feel that i need to be there for everyone else and when i need someone i feel weak? i feel little?

i turn and hide, run away

i need to give the gift of letting someone love me, letting someone lift me up

open up and be vulnerable

let them see me, let me see me

is it harder to show myself to others, or is it harder to show myself to myself?

all of me, exposed and naked, down to my inner core

more and more i see. more and more i let myself be seen

do you run and hide?

do you open up and be vulnerable?

who do you reach out to?

do you let them see you naked and vulnerable?

be seen, give the gift, love yourself!

a simple life

i’d like to live a simple life. but i make life not simple.

there are many wants that i want and it’s a challenge for me to find the balance between healthy wanting and lacking wanting. lacking want leads me to feeling overwhelmed.

when i think of simple it’s not really a simple life that i want.

what i really want is to experience and feel all those things that are important to me.

the question is then, what is important to me?

the next question, am i doing what’s important to me?

someday’s yes, someday’s no.

on someday’s no, i ask myself, what’s important to me? what do i want?

and then, my life goes back to being a little simpler. not because it’s a simpler life, because it’s the life that i want to live. and living the life that i want to live is being connected to me.

being connected to me, that feels good, positive, simple – even when it’s not. that is the energy of being connected.

what’s important to you?

what do you want?

are you doing what’s important to you?

are you connected to you?

centered and grounded

what do you do to get centered and grounded?

it is important for me to get centered and grounded for many different reasons.

for myself so that i connect to the truth and love in me. so that i am aware of what’s most important to me. for myself so that i am a positive energy and i am connected to me.

for my family so that i am present and patient. so that i am open and loving. so that i am ready to laugh and ready to be accountable. for my family so that we are connected.

for being a difference maker, so that i am present and in the moment.  for being a difference maker so i am in alignment and we are connected.

for the world so that my positive energy can flow and be a light and source of positive energy to as many people as possible. for the world so that we are connected.

balance

what is balance?

when do you feel balanced?

when do you feel out of balance?

balance is something we experience for a moment or two, and life happens, we’re back out of balance.

why do we always try to attain a balance that is unattainable?

i’m not sure. but i know that i do like to feel balance in my life.

with the different moments in my life, with the many different experiences that i live my life needs different things to create a feeling of balance.

keeping balance in my life means that i am prioritizing what’s most important in my life. one of the most important for me is being sure i prioritize myself and take me time for my body, mind and spirit.

what makes you feel balanced?

what’s most important to you?
