what’s important to you?

what’s important to me? do i think about that? do i make what’s important to me my priority?

am i living the way i want to live? am i living my truth?

what is important to me? who do i want to be? what do i want to do? what do i want to experience? how do i want to live?

i want many things. i want to be many things. i want to do many things. i want to experience many things.

but…

how often do i find my thoughts focused on the lack, what’s missing, what i don’t have, the lack of what i want.

if i’m focusing on the lack, i’m not putting my time and attention, my focus, on what’s important to me. what i want.

it’s only important because i make it so. and so i need to keep doing my best to keep my focus and attention and what i want, what’s most important to me.

if i allow my thoughts to stay focused on the lack when i become aware that my thoughts wandered off to thinking about the lack. then aren’t i choosing to make that important?

that’s not what i want. i don’t want the lack.

i want what i want, and i’m going to have it. i want to be who i want to be. i want to do what i want to do. i want to experience what i want to experience.

it’s important to me, and so i’m going to make it so.

what’s important to you? are you focused on what you want? who you want to be. what you want to do. what you want to experience.

what’s important to you? if it’s important to you, then make it so.

choose what’s important to you, and when your mind wanders to lack, choose what you want again. choose what’s important to you again, choose what you want again, choose again, and again, and again…

live your truth!

live your truth

Are you living your truth?

Living your truth is being who you want to be, doing what you want to do and experiencing what you want to experience to create the life you want to live.

Living your truth is being and doing what is most important to you.

Living your truth is being guided by your dreams and desires. It is not living by somebody else’s expectations for you and it is not living the life others think you should live. Living your truth is all about you. It is about what you want and what’s most important to you. Living your truth is about your dreams and desires.

Living your truth is knowing your values and that you can live by your values and what is most important to you. Values provide your foundation and are your guidance system to living your truth and creating your fulfilling life journey.

Living your truth is experiencing many different activities and adventures in all areas of your life that you want to experience. Experiences give you awareness, growth, challenges, celebrations, happiness and many emotions to feel. Experiences create fulfillment. Experiences create the life journey you want to live.

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer said, “An infinity of forest lies dormant within the dreams on one acorn.” What dreams and desires do you have? You are the creator of your forest. You are the creator of your life journey, and your life journey is amazing and marvelous. Your dreams and desires are the energy, purpose and passion to living your truth.

Living your truth is an intimate awareness of who you are. Who do you want to be? What do you want to do? What do you want to experience? What’s most important to you? What fulfills you? What do you imagine your life journey will be?

Living your truth is continuous growth, expansion and transformation. You are becoming more, becoming better, doing more, doing better, experiencing more and living a bigger and better life. You are growing and creating. Living your truth is making your dreams and desires come true, living your life with purpose and passion. Are you living on purpose with passion?

Living your truth is living with joy and gratitude, energy and enthusiasm. You choosing what is most important to you, so you experience feeling; love, joy, peace, gratitude, serenity, faith, abundance, freedom, and happiness. Living your truth is living a happy and fulfilled life. Are you choosing the good and positive for what’s most important to you?

Living your truth is living in present moment awareness. You choosing what is most important to you to be who you want to be, to do what you want to do and to experience what you want to experience. Are you living in present moment awareness?

Living your truth is feeling gratitude for who you are and who you are becoming. Living your truth is feeling gratitude for what you are doing and experiencing. You choose to feel gratitude for all experiences; positive and negative, happy and sad, the ups and downs, twists and turns of all your life journey. Living your truth is living your life moments fully. Are you grateful for your life, your experiences and your choices?

Living your truth is creating the life you want to live, being and doing what is most important to you and experiencing all you want to experience. Living your truth is living your life journey fully, living your dreams and desires, living a fulfilled life.

Living your truth is living a fulfilled life; being who you want to be, doing what you want to do and experiencing what you want to experience to create the life you want to live.

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!

present

where am i? and where do i want to go?

there are many wants i have. many dreams and desires. i have many desires achieved now that i am living and experiencing. i have desires that are growing and expanding. i have dreams and desires that are experienced in little ways, and wanted in big ways. i have dreams and desires creating the vision of the life that i want to live.

sunrise

in all these wants of mine, the biggest desire now is to be present. be present for myself, be present for those i am sharing the moment with.

i want to be aware of the experience, enjoying the experience. i want to be connected to my inner being and connected to who i may be with. i want to be me, free of masks. i want to enjoy others for their being, no expectations and no judging, connecting to their being.

present. being. connected. life. love.

where am i? present!

where am i going? being present in the next moment!

live your truth!

wanting change

i’m not happy with an experience in my journey right now, i want it to change. it is not a change that can be done quickly, it will affect many other areas of my life. i am easily overwhelmed and stressed by small triggers and need to make the change as soon as possible.

i find myself getting overtaken and lost in feelings of worry and doubt, fear of not… not finding the change i need, not acting quickly enough, not making the right choice, not living my truth.

dsc04446

i am so happy and grateful for many things in areas of my life that i want to change, but so often i get caught up and swept away in the wanting of change, wanting something more that i don’t have.

and i wonder if i focused on being grateful for what was good in that area of my life, what then would i create? and how much faster could i create it?

letting go of the worry, doubt and fear. letting go the overwhelm and feeling lack.

allowing gratitude to fill me. gratitude for what is good in this part of my journey. gratitude for what i am learning and experiencing. gratitude for the challenge. gratitude for the growth. gratitude for all the pieces that were (and are) good in this piece of me that it is now time for me to change.

gratitude for growth!

what am i going to create?! it is a new adventure on this journey of my life!

live your truth!

 

passion

what are you passionate about?

do you have a burning desire to live your truth? to live your dreams and desires?

dreams and desires fulfill passions. passions fulfill purpose.

“The purpose of life is to be happy.” ~Dalai Lama

passion is having a burning desire to experience or to have something. there are many things that i want and many things that i want to experience. they don’t all have the same level of desire. and my desire for a thing or an experience changes as well.

what keeps passion and desire for the wanted thing or experience high?

dscn6839

thinking about the desired thing and wanted experience and connecting to how you want to feel having experienced it keeps passion and desire high.

it is normal for passion and desire to ebb and flow.

when your passion is low connect to how you want to feel having attained your want or having experienced what you want to experience.

what are you passionate about?

who do you want to be? what do you want to do? what do you want to experience?

live your truth!

 

trust yourself

do you trust yourself?

dsc02551

do you trust yourself to do what’s most important to you?

do you trust yourself to say ‘no’ when you need to say no?

do you trust yourself to take a risk when a risk is needed?

do you trust that you listen to your body?

do you trust yourself to push past your comfort zone?

do you trust that you listen to your intuition?

do you trust that you make decisions for your values?

do you trust that you can take care of yourself?

do you trust that you love yourself more than anyone?

trust and believe in yourself! listen to your body, listen to your intuition, say ‘no’, take the risk, and love yourself. the more you listen and trust yourself, the deeper your trust will become.

be who you want to be, do what you want to do, experience what you want to experience and create the life that you want to live!

live your truth!

 

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!

ideas

How many ideas do you have for all different areas of your life? How many ideas for wants that you have? How many ideas for new wants?

Ideas to create the visions that you want. Ideas for new experiences that you want to have. Ideas for living your life fully.

What do you do with the many ideas that you have? What should you do with all the ideas that you have?

Some ideas should be acted upon as soon as possible to create what they can create.

Some ideas are a springboard for new ideas and new visions that can be held, live their purpose quickly and can then be let go.

Some ideas will surface, then sink down again and resurface later when you are ready for the change and growth that the idea will bring.

How do you feel when you get a new idea? When you feel more strongly about an idea that idea is one that you should take more immediate action on.

What ideas have you had? What ideas have you followed? What ideas do you want to follow?

Act on an idea today, or think more on an idea that you have had and create something new that you want.

Live Your Truth!
