eager

I’m an eternally expanding Being, and I’m doing great where I am, and I’m so eager about what’s coming!

I am always becoming, I am always creating. Today I am more than I was yesterday, tomorrow I am more than I am today. I am a person that enjoys becoming more and doing more. I enjoy being who I want to be and I enjoy doing what I want to do.

There are many moments that I forget I’m connected to my inner being and I forget this. When I have forgotten I am not living in present moment awareness, I am not connected to what is most important to me. I am not feeling love and gratitude.

Then I remember – I’m pulled back into the moment and reconnected with my inner being, I become re-aware that I’m doing great where I am. I feel the love and gratitude for who I was, who I am, and who I’m becoming.

I realize the person I’ve grown into, being who I want to be, doing what I want to do and experiencing what I want to experience. I am happy and grateful for the expansion of my being and my life.

I am happy and grateful for who I am now in the moment, and I am happy, grateful and excited for who I yet want to become, what I want to do and what I want to experience. I am eager to experience all of life’s moments!

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.

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!

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.

good failure

i am determined to learn and grow from my failures.

failure if you allow it is a teacher. a stepping stone along your journey.

failure if you allow it gives new energy and enthusiasm to create what you want. it gives renewed determination and a burning desire to succeed!

I will be using my recent failures to build a stronger foundation.

what have you recently failed at?

what are you scared of doing because you don’t want to fail?

img104

experiencing life fully means taking risk. stepping out of your comfort zone and allowing yourself the opportunity to fail.

failures are a good teacher. failures are a good motivator. without failure, life journeys would not be as exciting.

take the risk! failing is not failing, failing is an exciting step of growth along your journey!

habits

I want to create change and growth in my life. To create the change and growth I want to be more disciplined in some areas of my life. I know that what I need to do is create habits to be part of my routines to support the changes that I want.

One of the disciplines, a habit that I want part of my daily routines is reading my affirmations and connecting to the visions I have for the life that I want to live.

DSC05867

This habit is one that I have had in the past and slowly it became less and less a daily habit.

I didn’t notice myself missing this habit right away, then I started wondering about some of the challenges that I started experiencing in my life and I realized that when I was reading my affirmations in my morning routine my days were more positive. My days were more directed by what I want to be, what I want to do and what I want to experience. My days would have a sense of urgency, but not overwhelm.

With the challenges I was experiencing in my life many of my days I was feeling overwhelmed and stressed, rather than positive and purpose filled.

Are there habits and routines that you have had and would like to begin again? Is there a habit that you would like to create for new change in your life?

Begin a new routine today to create a new habit that will help you to change and grow!

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?

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.

change

when do you know it’s time for change in your life?

are you aware it’s time for a change?

or are you ignoring it? keeping yourself busy and allowing distractions into your life.

DSC05867

are you taking the risk needed to change and grow? are you being true to yourself and doing what’s most important to you? are you creating the life that you want to live?

or are you living to please others instead of yourself and conforming to what others are expecting from you?

do you have a challenge in your life right now? how is it making you feel? how do you want to feel? what can you do to feel that way now?

take the risk! change is growth, and it’s time to grow!
