stop your thoughts

what are your dominant thoughts throughout the day?

are your thoughts positive for what you want, grateful for the now moment, or negative?

when your thoughts are negative – feeling the lack of what you want, wandering aimlessly about things that are not true and will not happen, angry or overwhelmed – what do you do to stop your thoughts?

do you think about what you do want?

do you think about what you can be grateful for in the now moment?

do you journal, go for a walk, meditate?

do you say out loud “stop!” to interrupt the thought and pick a new one?

when you realize that your thoughts are negative, choose one of the above to stop those thoughts and focus on something positive.

what will you practice this week?

live your truth!

time gets away

time

what is time exactly? minutes, seconds, days, hours, years. moon cycles. the rising and setting of the sun.

what does time mean to you?

how do you use time?

does time seem to slip away? how is time getting away from you?

what do you want to do in a moment?

what do you want to do in a day, hour, week, year?

are you doing what’s most important to you?

are you grateful for what you choose to do?

are you aware of what you are choosing with your moments of time?

time

how real is time? how important is time?

what are you doing in each moment, and what gratitude you feel is how you are using your time.

enjoy your time, your moments

live your truth!

change

do you resist change, or accept change?

change can be a challenge and change can be a celebration.

a simple life

i’d like to live a simple life. but i make life not simple.

there are many wants that i want and it’s a challenge for me to find the balance between healthy wanting and lacking wanting. lacking want leads me to feeling overwhelmed.

when i think of simple it’s not really a simple life that i want.

what i really want is to experience and feel all those things that are important to me.

the question is then, what is important to me?

the next question, am i doing what’s important to me?

someday’s yes, someday’s no.

on someday’s no, i ask myself, what’s important to me? what do i want?

and then, my life goes back to being a little simpler. not because it’s a simpler life, because it’s the life that i want to live. and living the life that i want to live is being connected to me.

being connected to me, that feels good, positive, simple – even when it’s not. that is the energy of being connected.

what’s important to you?

what do you want?

are you doing what’s important to you?

are you connected to you?

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?

live your truth!

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!

expectation

what do you want?

what do you want in each area of your life?

what are you expecting from each area of your life?

 

mood-nature-river-water-90771.jpeg

do you know? do you have a clear vision of what you want?

are what you want and what you are expecting the same or different?

if what you want and what you are expecting are different, what do you need to change?

  • what do you need to become aware of?
  • where do you need to grow?
  • what do you want?
  • where are you now?
  • is there a step you need to take between?
  • does anybody need to know what you want or what you expect?

tell me, what do you want? what do you expect?

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!
