say no

am i saying ‘no’ when i need to and want to?

i’m not saying ‘no’ as often as i want. maybe i’m not saying ‘no’ to some of the small things. some small things won’t matter because the outcome and effect too is small. some small things will matter if they are repeated. the outcome will change from what i want. the effect of not saying ‘no’ to the small thing over and over again will have a big effect.

saying ‘yes’ to the small thing becomes a habit resulting in saying ‘no’ to the outcome that i want. repeated again and again they can build up and become negative. repeated again and again saying ‘yes’ to the small thing will not get me to the goal i want and the life that i want to create.

what am i saying ‘yes’ to? what am i then saying ‘no’ to at the same time? a ‘yes’ for a thing, is a ‘no’ for another thing. which is the one i truly want?

“You are always only one choice away from changing your life.” ~Marcy Blochowiak

what is my awareness?

what’s important to me? what’s not?

am i living my truth in this yes/no choice?

what are you saying ‘yes’ to? what are you saying ‘no’ to? will saying ‘yes’ to the small thing create the outcome that you want? will saying ‘yes’ to the small thing again and again create the life that you want?

what’s important to you? what’s not?

are you living your truth in the yes/no choice?

live your truth!

dreams and goals

live your life pursuing your dreams and goals, by your values and beliefs.

“The only person who succeeds is the person who is progressively realizing a worthy ideal. He’s the person who says, “I’m going to become this…” and begins working towards that goal.” ~Earl Nightingale

I want you to live a happy and successful life.

  • what makes you happy?

Have you taken time to think about yourself? Do you know your values? What makes you happy? What do you want to do? What do you want to experience? What do you want to give?

In life, we are responsible for ourselves. You are the only person to make yourself happy.

committed

what are you committed to?

are you committed to becoming better? do you have goals that you are committed to?

how committed are you? are you achieving your goals? are you becoming better?

mood-nature-river-water-90771.jpeg

commitment is the decision and dedication to a goal, to a task, to being or to doing.

when you are committed, you continually make decisions to be or to do what you are committed to. the commitment gives you power to be who you want to be, to do what you want to do.

your commitment creates the energy for you to move forward, to becoming better to attaining your goal.

do you have goals that you have not reached? are you being your best and doing your best?

if you are not, what are you committed to? it is something other than your goal. you are committed to the pleasure of being or doing something else.

there is a tipping point to commitment, a point at which you be and do what is needed to be better, to reach your goal. everyone’s tipping point is different, if you are not at your tipping point you are not fully committed. you are not feeling enough pain to fully commit to your goal, to being better.

why do you want to be better? why do you want to attain that goal? your why needs to be bigger than the pleasures that can distract you from your goals.

are you committed to being better? are you committed to your goals?

going around in circles

Values are the foundation for living happy successful lives.

You deserve happiness, abundance and health. The key to your happiness is you. When you know your values, and live your life by your values, you are a happier and healthier person. Often people live their lives without knowing their values and they make decisions based on other people’s expectations. When people make decisions this way they aren’t living the life they are meant to live! They are unhappy and live a life of lack, of wanting more in one or more areas of their lives.

I used to live my life without knowing my values. I wasn’t living my truth. I wasn’t being the me that I wanted to be, I wasn’t doing what I wanted to do, and I wasn’t living how I wanted to live.

Have you ever been in a canoe on a windy day, and paddling just didn’t seem to get you anywhere? I’ve been in a canoe on a windy day, and my paddling wasn’t getting me anywhere. The canoe would go this way and that way. I was facing the wrong direction. I tried to correct my direction by turning the canoe. I was going in a new direction but it still wasn’t the direction that I wanted to go. I was going around in circles and not getting anywhere.

This is how my life felt when I wasn’t living by my values. I made decisions based on what was expected of me, or what I thought was expected of me. I didn’t have my values clearly defined and written down. I didn’t have significant goals for myself in all areas of my life.

It was like the canoe going in all different directions but the direction that I wanted it to. I was going around in circles in my life.

When I was in the canoe on that windy day, it was a challenge for me to get the canoe going in the right direction without making some major changes. I had to trim the canoe, to find a better balance from where to paddle. I turned myself around in the canoe so that I paddled backward to move forward. After struggling, I found my balance and was able to move in the direction that I wanted to more easily and steadily.

My balance was off in my life as well. I was unhappy and unhealthy.

I gradually realized that I wasn’t living by my values, and what my values meant to me. I read a book, ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ by Stephen Covey. I clarified my values, I wrote my values down along with what the value meant to me. I set significant goals in all areas of my life.

I found my balance and started growing in the direction that I wanted to go. I started being who I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do and living how I wanted to live!

I took responsibility for my life. I am happy and harmonious with my mind at peace with my heart.

Values are a belief that is meaningful to you. Values are priorities that tell you how to spend your time, right here, right now. Stephen Covey says, “(values) are the source of our passions in life, and they help us determine where we focus our energies.”

When you know your values and what they mean to you; creating goals and making decisions are easier. Your values are your guidance system.

And like finding the balance in a canoe on a windy day, knowing your values is like finding your balance for your life. You choose to live by your values, and living by your values creates your happy and harmonious life.

Live Your Truth!

moment to moment

Our life journeys are to live happy. To feel and be love. To grow and expand. Our journeys are living our goals, our dreams and desires. Are you living your goals? Are you living your dreams and desires?

Our journeys are made from all the little moments, moment to moment we live and experience life. The way I have found to live happy, to feel and be love is to play with life. I have many positive habits and routines that have helped me to create the life that I want to live. I have developed them through time, through trial and error of what works for me and what doesn’t work for me. I have an idea for doing to create the want in my life, and I try the idea. If it doesn’t work I modify the idea and try again. I tweak it just so, I play with it, a lot like modeling clay. You play with the idea until you get it right for you. As I look back at the moments I have been overcome with love, joy and gratitude – I had been busy playing with life. I was experiencing life as I played with it. I was playing with life and creating what I wanted that I didn’t fully realize that I had already create a big portion of the life that I wanted to live. Because I had had a new expanded ideas as I played and I started playing with that. That is what living in the moment is, it is ALL of life.

“Humans are experiential and experiences are thoughts in constant creation.
~Rob Rohe

Playing with life is the constant creation of what you want. What makes you happy, what makes you fulfilled. And what makes you happy and what fulfills you will change and grow as you experience new ideas and play with them moment to moment. That is your journey, experiencing life moment to moment – even though we can get caught up in the moment of playing that we momentarily forget to be aware that we are choosing, we are creating.

Oprah Winfrey said, “The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.” Play with your dreams and the ideas that you get that will lead you to your dreams and desires. You will grow and expand. You will live the life that you want to live. You may not realize it, because you have already expanded and grown and are playing with the new idea for your expanded dreams and desires.

“Life is a challenge, meet it! Life is a dream, realize it! Life is a game, play it! Life is love, enjoy it!” ~Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Live Your Truth!

Living My Truth

I used to live my life without knowing my values. I wasn’t living my truth. I was going in all different directions than the direction that I wanted to go.

I was going around in circles in my life. Not being who I wanted to be (always holding myself back to please someone else), not doing what I wanted to do, not experiencing what I wanted to experience.

I wasn’t living by my values, and I didn’t know where I was or where exactly I wanted to go. I made decisions based on what was expected of me, or what I thought was expected of me.

I lived my life waiting for life to happen to me. Often living for the days end and tomorrows beginning.

I made excuses for why I wasn’t being who I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do, or experiencing what I wanted to experience.

I was doing less and less of what I enjoyed. More and more I was feeling worry, doubt, fear, anxiety, stress or overwhelm.

I gradually realized that I wasn’t living by my values. I had a vague idea of what my values were. I clarified my values and defined my values. I started growing in the direction that I wanted, no more going around in circles.

I started being who I want to be, doing what I want to do, and experiencing what I wanted to experience.

Today I am happy and harmonious with my mind at peace with my heart. I wake with enthusiasm, energy and excitement to play and experience a new day. I enjoy the journey of living a fulfilling life.

I go to sleep feeling filled with joy and gratitude for the day and for my life journey. I am excited and enthusiastic to create the life of my dreams.

I am a different person, I took control of my life. I took responsibility for who I wanted to be, what I wanted to do, what I wanted to experience and how I wanted to feel.

I stopped conforming and started creating the life that I want to live. I started living by my values. I knew where I was and where I wanted to go.

I am no longer living to survive the day, waiting for life to happen to me, waiting for the days end and tomorrows beginning. I am no longer going around in circles.

I am enjoying the twists and turns, the rapids and smooth waters, and all the stops along the way of my life journey. I am living my truth!

Live Your Truth!

Spiraling Up

Growth and transformation are ever spiraling upwards. The goals that we create for ourselves, the visions we build and imagine for ourselves guide us to take action in becoming who we want to become, in doing what we want to do and in experiencing what we want to experience.

dsc02551

Our vision that we continue to make clear from our dreams and desires determines the goals that we have in our lives. Our goals and visions for our present moment, for the life that we want to live. As we do and be what our goals determine us to do and be we create the life that we want to live. As we live the life that we have imagined, our vision expands and grows. An expanding vision creates new and expanded goals. As we do and be what our new and expanded goals guide us to do and be, we create the new life that we want to live. As we live the new life that we have imagined, our vision expands and grows again, we create more new and expanding goals. We grow continually, ever spiraling upwards.

Vision and Create Your Life

“The only person who succeeds is the person who is progressively realizing a worthy idea.” ~Earl Nightingale

Your worthy ideal is what you define it to be, the vision you have of the person you want to be, what you want to do, what you want to experience, how you want to feel. Your worthy ideal is your visions for living the life of your dreams and desires.

createabundanceheader

Your worthy ideal is all about you. What is most important to you, what fulfills you, what do you enjoy? Who do you want to be, what do you want to do, what do you want to experience?

Do you have the visions of living your dreams and desires in your mind? Do you imagine how you want to live? Imagination begins the creating of the life that you want to live.

“Thoughts become things. If you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand.” ~Bob Proctor

Life is a journey! It is not the destination that brings growth, peace and happiness, it is your journey and experiences, your values and goals guiding and directing you to achieve your vision, that bring excitement and energy, your happiness and success into your life.

Living your truth is being who you want to be, doing what you want to do and living how you want to live by knowing yourself deeply. Knowing your vision and what you want to experience. Creating a life that is happy and harmonious, fulfilling and successful, and you enjoying your life journey.

Are you living your truth? Are you imagining who you want to be? Are you visualizing what you want to do? Are you experiencing what you want to experience? Are you living and creating the life you want to live? Live your truth!

Life Dreams and Desires

I want to create the life of my dreams.

DSCN3604

Am I fully living? Am I being who I want to be? Am I doing what I want to do? Am I experiencing what I want to experience?

Values guide you to confidently and calmly make decisions, and goals direct you to keep growing and expanding, to take action in being who you want to be and what you want to do.

Goals are a part of your guidance system to create the life of your dreams and desires. Goals are to grow, to experience and be the best you.

“The only person who succeeds is the person who is progressively realizing a worthy ideal.” ~Earl Nightingale

Life is all about you, what is most important to you, what fulfills you, what do you most enjoy? Your passions drive you to your life purpose and life goals.

Fulfillment is feeling joy and gratitude for who you are being, what you are doing, what you are experiencing. Fulfillment is enjoying your life journey. Fulfillment is living your truth!

Living your truth is pursuing and living your life goals, your dreams and desires, your passions. Living your truth is being happy, experiencing life, living life fully with purpose.

 

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

Are you fully living? Are you creating the life of your dreams?
