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.

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!

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!

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!

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?

what are you reading?

i love books!

i love reading, studying, learning. i love novels, personal growth, biographies, wellbeing, nature, and so many more.

i can get lost in a book, captivated and curious. what’s going to happen next? what new information am i going to read and learn that will help me to become a better me? what am i going to read in the next page, the next chapter, the next book that’s going to help me to grow and expand?

books

books have given me so much, i am who i am today because of the books that i have read. i have many books – some books i’ve read multiple times, i have a stack of books yet to read. i have books that i have read just a bit and set aside, i have books that i read a little from every day.

many books have been very significant in my life for my growth and expansion, being the best me, and in transforming me and my life.

  • Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
  • Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
  • Five Wishes by Gay Hendricks
  • eat pray love by Elizabeth Gilbert
  • The Why Cafe by John P. Strelecky

currently i am reading The Power of Intention by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and Nature and the Human Soul by Bill Plotkin.

tell me, what has been a meaningful book to you? what are you reading now?

comfort

What do you want? Are choosing what it is that you most want?

Or, are you living a life that you are comfortable living?

It is easy to get comfortable, to think that we are living  the life that we want to live, which we most the time are. But… are you growing? expanding? creating? Are you becoming more? Are you doing more?

dsc04446

I get comfortable in my life. And I am so happy and grateful when I become aware that I have become comfortable in an area of my life; that I am not being all that I want to be, that I am not doing all that I want to do, that I am not experiencing all that I want to experience.

What do I want? What is most important to me? Am I doing all that I can? Am I creating the life that I want to live, or am I living in ‘comfort’?

It is time for me to ‘rock the boat’ in some areas of my life. I feel it, I am aware of it, and now it is time to create the life that I want to live and experience in those areas of my life!

What do you want? Are you creating the life that you want to live, or are you living in ‘comfort’? Is it time for you to rock the boat?

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?

dsc04446

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.

you are – I am

it’s amazing how much you can learn about yourself when you’re thinking about someone else qualities and characteristics. what quirks that they have, what their natural behaviors are. what habits they have.

i have studied a person because there is a quality that they have, and I want to grow and expand the same quality in myself. what else are they doing in the same moment they are displaying the quality? are they responding to someone or a situation? what energy are they sending out?

i have also seen qualities in people that i don’t like. sometimes those qualities and behaviors jump out at you in a situation and can’t get it out of your mind. these are qualities to study and learn from too. ask yourself the same questions, and then follow up asking the same questions about you and the quality or behavior you don’t like.

so many times the irritating qualities that i have seen in others are irritating to me because it is a characteristic of myself that I don’t like and want to change or eliminate. it can be easier to identify negative characteristics in others before being able to identify them in our own self.

dsc05857

studying people with qualities and characteristics we like, we learn what we can do to expand and grow. learning about the qualities and characteristics we don’t like, we learn to identify what we can do to change those same qualities and characteristics in ourselves to a positive quality or characteristic.

studying positive qualities and characteristics and growing and expanding a positive quality we be who we want to be. learning about a negative quality or characteristic and changing what we don’t like in our behaviors allows us to grow and expand to be who we want to be.

what quality or characteristic do you want to change or eliminate?

what quality or characteristic do you want to grow and expand?
