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?
“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.
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.
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.
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.
Pleasing others before yourself and trying to make others happy is something that many people do. It is most important to do what pleases you and what is in alignment with your values. Doing what’s most important to you gives you energy and enthusiasm to do what you want for others. Doing what’s most important to you is taking care of yourself so that you can take care of the most important people in your life.
Pleasing yourself first is a small difference, but a very significant difference. Giving yourself some pleasure, just starting with 5 minutes a day, gives you a boost of energy and enthusiasm for the other activities you choose for your life. When you put yourself first, the activities you have chosen remain a joy to you, and don’t become a burden and a weight on your shoulders.
Do something for yourself each day. You can begin with taking 5 minutes for something that you enjoy. What do you enjoy? Is it reading, yoga, drawing, dancing, sitting silently with coffee, connecting to the Earth outside, writing, sewing, doing a puzzle, chatting with a friend, finding a new recipe on the internet, or learning to juggle? Choose something you enjoy and do it for 5 minutes today.
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!
