gratitude in the gap

what do you want?

are you feeling the lack of the want? or are you feeling the awareness and gratitude for the want?

often when we get in the gap we are feeling the lack of what we want. when we feel the lack of what we want our energy is in negative flow.

what do you want? what are you focused on? are you noticing a growing list of what you don’t have? are you feeling overwhelm of what all you need to accomplish this want that you want? is your body tight and tense, shoulders lifting to your ears?

you can feel the gratitude in the gap for three things. the awareness of what you want, the growth you have experienced and the journey of the moment.

what do you want? what are you focused on? are you curious about creating what you want? are you excited to learn and do new things? is your body light and free, muscles loose with flowing movements?

are you noticing what you want and being curious? what can you learn about what you want? what will you discover about what you want? what will you discover about what you want to create? what will you discover about yourself? notice what you can discover and create and be grateful.

are you noticing the growth you have experienced to lead you to this new want? where were you, in this moment right now are you living a past want? as we experience life and grow, we are expanding spiraling upward, creating the life that we want. our wants grow and expand. our old want has grown and expanded to our new want. notice your growth of your want and be grateful.

are you noticing this moment you are living? what are you experiencing? what is the journey you are on? who are you being? what are you doing? what are you creating? this moment is for you to be who you want to be and to do what you want to do. this moment is for you to experience what you want to experience. notice that each moment is part of your journey. there are the moments of your past, there will be moments in your future, right now is the moment of your present. live and experience this moment and be grateful.

what do you want? what is your gap? be grateful in the gap for you have experienced many moments to be in the gap. be grateful in the gap for you are creating your dreams and desires. be grateful in the gap for you are in this moment living and experiencing your life journey.

what is your gratitude in the gap?

what do you need to learn?

i’ve been writing a book. i enjoy the writing and feeling the creative energy moving through me into thoughts and words on the paper. still, i have stopped and started multiple times. i am in the phase of my review and editing before i  pass it on to the experts in other areas that i will need help with.

amazingly, and not surprisingly (although it does still happily surprise me when the universe gives me exactly what i need), i saw an online summit for authors and publishing and have been listening to many sessions all about being an author and publishing.

i knew that there were decisions that i need to make and that i didn’t know what my decision should be because i didn’t have the knowledge to make the decision. after listening to the summit sessions i am able to make many decisions to keep moving forward with publishing my book. and the decisions i still need more information to make a decision, i know where to look for the information.

i like this experience, it reminds me that though i’ve been moving forward (although haltingly) with this process of writing and publishing my book, there were still things that i needed to learn and get educated about.

what are you working on in your life? what are you moving forward to that you need more information? where can you get that information? what are you going to do to get the information you need to keep moving forward and growing in the direction that you want to go and grow?

keep and learning and growing!

expectations

what expectations do you have in relationships?

relationship to yourself, your beloved, your children, God/Universe/all that is, team, life,  work, money, time…

it is your responsibility to make sure the other person in your relationship knows your expectations.

so many hurts and frustrations are because our expectations are not met.

“Frustration is a function of our expectations, and our expectations are often a reflection of the social mirror rather than our own values and priorities.”
~ Stephen Covey

do you know what your expectations are? do you share your expectations?

tell your expectations to the other in your relationship. it is loving yourself and loving the other person (or part of the relationship) to know and share your expectations.

sharing your expectations is vulnerable, it is showing and building trust, it is letting the other person know how much the relationship means to you. sharing expectations shows that you value the relationship and its growth.

what expectations do you have? what expectations do you need to share?

live your truth!

grow

are you growing?

are you becoming more? are you doing more and more of what you want to do? are you doing more and more of what you want to experience?

dscn7318

what do you need for your growth?

  • awareness – do you know what you want?
  • connection – are you connected and listening to yourself?
  • fun – what do you enjoy doing?
  • challenge – where are you coming from?
  • enthusiasm – why do you want what you want?

these are important to me for my growth. when i am growing i’m connected to myself. i’m aware of where i am and what i want. many times, even when it’s hard, i’m enjoying what i’m doing and having fun.

when i’m connected to myself and know what it is that i want i feel enthusiasm and energy to begin creating what i want and growing.

i’m curious, what helps your growth? what are some of the feelings and activities that you do to help you become more?

are you doing more? are you experiencing more?

live your truth!

do and learn

i have a stack of books that i want to read, and a list of books that i want to purchase.

there are many things that i want to do.

there are many things that i want to experience.

there are many places that i want to go, explore and see the wonders of nature.

i love to learn, to grow and experience new things.

what do you want to learn?

what new activity do you want to try?

where do you want to go?

what do you want to explore?

learn or do something new today.

live your truth!

 

do you want too much?

do you feel that you want too much?

i wonder if i want too much. i know that’s not true.

i wonder how much of what i want is enough. and do i want too much? will i ever get what i want?

no i won’t.

i will get what i want now. and my want will grow so that i want something more, something new, something better.

i will always want more, and that is good. the challenge is not getting stuck in the wanting.

i am happy and grateful for everything that i have now. it was my want at one time. i need to remind myself of this and choose gratitude often. sometimes i have to ask to be aware, where have i grown?

i’ve grown, i’ve changed, and i’ve grown some more. with my changes and growth, my wants have changed and grown and expanded. and my wants always will grow and expand with my life experiences.

be aware of your wants so that you continue to grow and expand.

be aware of what you have now. where were you a day ago, a week ago, a year ago?

celebrate the growth you have accomplished! celebrate the wants that you have achieved!

you have grown and achieved more than you realize. where have you grown? what have you achieved? celebrate all those wants that have manifested!

and, be grateful for your now wants. wants help you to grow and be better. be happy in awareness and growth!

live your truth!

balance

do you live a balanced life?

i don’t believe that we ever truly have a balanced life. if life were balanced, it would probably be pretty dull. not being in balance gives us an area of our lives to experience challenge and growth.

pexels-photo-965158.jpeg

what areas of your life are you feeling a little out-of-balance in?

  • personal and spiritual growth
  • fun and recreation
  • finances
  • business/career
  • family and friends
  • physical environment
  • health and wellbeing
  • romance

i’m feeling a little out-of-balance in my fun and recreation and business/career areas. i would like change in my business/career so i am getting my professional coach certification and enjoying coaching clients. i have a desire for more fun and recreation in my life, i want to enjoy more time and new experiences with my friends and family.

it’s amazing to me how you can focus on one area of your life to make it better and more of what you want it to be, and it effects all the other areas of your life as well. you create more in your life area of focus and it ripples into the other areas of your life and they become better too.

are you causing ripples in your life?

what area of life would you like to focus on and make better?

live your truth!
